Malky blaming the fact that 2 balls were on the pitch for their first goal is one thing, the fact that you picked the wrong team is equally gaoling. Two defensive midfielders at home? No width, playing through a bog in the middle, why not play down the wings? Why not change it before they scored? It was apparent to all around that it needed changing, except you.

Andy - i think your being very harsh. I thought it was a decent performance of a bog of a pitch that takes it out of you when you are the home team trying to make the running. I don't think it was particularly the wrong team as yet again we created enough chances in the first half to win it. Our trouble at the moment our strikers are not taking the percentage of chances they were 6 weeks ago. We need to be more clinical (in both boxes)!

Agree re. team selection. Why was Jenkins favoured over Whichelow? Eustace is the holder in midfield. Dodgy equaliser, okay unlucky but indicative of our luck, they still scored two more. We need something to buck the trend and soon. Fourteen points on relegation spots if memory serves. Worried yet anyone?

Chris I take your comments on board and perhaps writing my comments straight after the game, i should have waited till the next day and calmed down. However on reflection, am I being harsh? The pitch is is worse than a bog so why not play down the wings? At least there's grass still there. I didn't chastise the team, they work their socks off. Malky must take responsibility for picking the team. His changes have often come to late in the game, it was so apparent that it needed changing earlier than he did, but the damage was done! At the start of the season, we all thought it was gonna be a struggle and it's been a delight, but you set a standard and if you fall below it, I think we have a right to moan, although I would never boo the team.
