It is a shame that CBT has been frozen out. He would offer something different. I know it sounds very gloomy but the best we are going to get out of the fit squad is an odd goal here or there. There is simply no one who has enough quality in the final third to score regularly. I do not go with the Ferrier/Payne argument. They were not regular goalscorers either. There was clearly no one available in January of the right calibre who we were prepared to pay for. A shame as the auto play offs are looking a bit questionable unless one or two of the other challenging teams implodes which does not seem very likely but who knows!Smacks of desperation although probably more effective than Nugent! Not sure it ever works - remember Goodi up there having a go!
Yes, indeed. It is up to Hill to get more from the players we have, and we do have a lot of creative talent in the squad.Bit fruitless taking about players we no longer have though. What about the ones we do have? Surely we can do better than choosing Lewis up front every game?

I didn't.I actually enjoyed Keith’s post-match interview for his honesty and positivity. He is a very grounded person with a lot of managerial experience at this level. When he says he’ll sort the team out for Monday, I believe him. And if we win on Monday, we will have started to turn the corner.
It really looked like the players were told at five to three, 'Oh, by the way, Cheltenham have got a long throw.'I didn't.
If we prepared well for Cheltenham, as Keith suggests post-match, then how does he account for why things went so horribly wrong when we got out on the pitch? If that is truly the case then KH needs to create some more space in his Siberia Gulag for Clarke, Ray and Murphy for disregarding the lessons learned in that preparation and contributing to such a defensive shambles.
