We're a laughing stock! How do we have about 5 injuries at LB and not manage to get someone in in January, not even on loan?!

And then today, were playing Lansbury, Massengo, and Paterson, none of which are defensive midfielders, against one of the best teams in the league. Why not play Nagy or Bakinson? I'm embarrassed today.

 

Sack Ashton, sack Holden.

Get in a new director of football and head coach pair that are happy to work together.

Should have brought Cook or Hughton in.

All this bollocks about pathways and development is a nonsense.

Just appoint someone who knows what they’re doing.

I don't believe they or any other experienced manager will come given Ashton's span of control. Appleton seems the likely next appt to me, but even he can't be worse than Holden & co, could he?

I hope Holden walks and calls every f****r out.

I agree. Ashton simply HAS to be booted up the road alongside him and so does anyone left at the club with a previous Mark Ashton connection. Total clear out required. If that doesn't happen then as far as I'm concerned Steve Lansdown really doesn't give that much of a crap about the football side of things.

Getting well and truly ****** over Valentines weekend... 

... This isn't quite what I had in mind..! 

We seem to be going down without much of a fight - were you hoping for something along the same lines? :)

I would bring Pearson and bell on. Let’s face it it’s game over already and we could probably rest some senior players from injuries and suspensions and both players would gain some experience

I wouldn't, you need to save them from this.

Keep em all out there most of them probably want to scunk off.

I know there is a bandwagon on here for getting rid of Holden, and in a results industry he has to take his share of blame, but honestly what are his options? He may not like to use injuries as an excuse but let's be real, they are a significant factor. What else could he do other than go Vyner, Kalas and Moore at the back. RWB has to be Hunt, and Towler is the only left footed defender we've got available to play LWB. He could have played Nagy, Palmer or Bakinson in midfield, but the latter has got some right stick on here recently and Massengo deserves his chance on recent efforts. Pato and Lansbury were risks given lack of game time but their proven quality should have been a plus. Up front Semenyo is the player who can run behind and Fam gets in ahead of Nahki on recent performances and decision making 

Today has been disastrous, but apart from playing Nagy for Lansbury I don't know if I'd gave done different

Calm down Ashton told us Holden was the stand out candidate 

And you can be sure he interviewed all the other candidates with their stupid experience of managing other football teams and all their stupid successful track records, so there isn't anyone else better qualified that Holden in the whole wide world.

SLs ownership has become tiresome. Aside from his cash - and, yes, I sound naive - I'm not sure what he brings. 

If clubs weren't desperate for cash all the time, SL would be considered little more than an unsuccessful football annoyance. 

Yep, the money is worth more than the man who spends it.

I've already said I will be renewing my season ticket but if Ashton stays and brings in ANOTHER mate of his then that's the point the club can **** off as far as I'm concerned.

Sensible post but Steve L doesn't do sensible in football

You have some valid points but it’s also the mangers job to motivate the players, they look like they have downed tools.
