The 1st half restored my faith that we were a footballing team and the 2nd half confirmed my belief that Paul Tisdale & his coaching team haven't got a clue. I can only guess that they have found some discarded copy of Charles Reep, Charles Hughes & Graham Taylor's coaching mantra that most goals were scored from three passes or fewer. This has been largely discredit, although I'm not against the long ball per see, but when it's repeated over & over again, so much so, that we end up just giving the ball away and putting our defence under pressure, it's not funny or fun. Not for once did we try to retain the ball, especially in the opposition's half and against a better team we would have lost the game.

I can only hope that we some how survive in League 1 and the powers to be will get fed up of giving the ball away because we not trust our own players.

P.S. Why bother with the warm up game, just have the players on each side of pitch, kicking the ball to each other.

Jeez, is it really that bad? Maybe it’s a blessing that I’m living away.

From my own point of view. the two halves were chalk & cheese, although I like eating cheese & not chalk, so I suppose it should be cheese & chalk. :D It will be interesting to read ACDon's report to see if he agrees.

It seems the coaching staff do know something. :D . It seems we played less long ball and the players had confidence to play. Big tests coming up though.
