Desperately disappointing and simply not good enough.
We are now ninth.:cry:

That's a very interesting point actually. Yes, we have been punching above our weight blah blah but you would hope for something more than we are getting now.19 points out of 60. That's total relegation form.
Well if our form continues as it is it will be mid table mediocrity this season as we may well end up about 12th. Savour that. Check the table.Such an anticlimax to a season, think that was our only chance at getting up, next season i have a feeling normal service will be resumed, and it will be midtable mediocrity for us again
Very true. It's galling to be honest. Especially when you receive an email from James Wallace guaranteeing 100% commitment from the players. Marketing bullsh*t.Incidentally, I thought it was great that James got a sporting ovation form our fans when he was substituted. Slogged his guts out in the lone striker role for a team that will be relegated anyway.
If only we had shown the same character......
Realistically, we won't have a better start to a season probably ever! It will certainly be normal service resumed next season. Let's just hope we don't end up with a fight on our hands.Well if our form continues as it is it will be mid table mediocrity this season as we may well end up about 12th. Savour that. Check the table.
You go 1-0 down at home to a team like that you're never going to be getting in behind. They will sit. We needed a bit of creativity, quick incisive passing around their penalty area, good deliveries/set pieces, good long range shooting. We did none of these things and they defended well.After the break we had a go, but did not get behind their back four often enough
They are down there for a reason. Before today they had only won eight games. We needed to be up and at them from the start and like you say, giving the back four a torrid time.I just think too many players at the moment are down in the dumps and failing to do the basic things that make a massive difference in games.
Against a poor team like Hartlepool it does not necessarily take silky skill to create an opening. Just by discomfiting the back four you can create confusion, force errors.
Our current form is dismal, but it still compares favourably to a record of 9 points from 18 games under Les prior to his dismissal, so I suppose we should be thankful for small mercies.Since January the form reads...
So over 20 games that's
19 points out of 60. That's total relegation form. Not sure I can arsed going to the morgue that will be Bournemouth. Really pissed off and it's the apparent lack of fight and any sort of capability that annoys me the most.
