I CANNOT WAIT to see Evans leave.
Probably our worst performance but best result of the season.FT: Gas 0 - 1 Imps
That was an inexperienced team and performance I thought. Really sloppy with the ball and invited pressure. Rovers had a real go, went direct and put bodies up there. Had opportunities to finish it but failed to convert. Rogers the most glaring, 90th minute him and Anderson through with only the GK to beat, instead of a simple sideways pass for Anderson to tap in, Rogers balooned a shot high and wide.
At this stage it's the points that matter. Will be a few bruised bodies for sure.
Evans got it wrong I agree. Being a dickhead towards the officials is kind of his thing though, and, sadly, that’s become expected of him.That was just magnificent. I was laughing joyously at Steve Evans ranting at the end, Radio Oxford commentators even went silent for a brief time to enjoy it themselves.
I don't know why Evans was ranting at the Ref though, the weak Lewis had been most accommodating for Steve Evans "dark arts" tactics throughout the game. Evans was to blame by getting his team to sit deep after going 2 up in the 72 minute.
Sam Long is a legend, the finish for the winner was just superbly controlled in the circumstances.

Like I said, the sooner he fucks off the better. Good luck to you lot though, hope you make the playoffs.
I think we struggled with their direct approach, as we often do against such teams. They did it well, and the long throws were an added threat, but I think the two players missing (Barker and Sykes) would have made a huge difference, as they have pace, which we lacked until Agyei came on. Pace ties up their defenders and gives us an outlet when being pressed. Once they scored the second they went deeper and we dominated totally for the next twenty odd minutes. Also, the stats show that actually we certainly weren't dominated as much as Evans claimed, even before that period.This weekends fixtures are starting to really shape the playoff places.
Charlton’s run in is far from favourable. I think either Pompey or ourselves are realistically going to take the final playoff slot. I have to admit the game in hand they have on us might prove invaluable... although our goal difference is almost identical so we may very well see a scenario whereby a side pips the other on GD. It’ll certainly prove close.
On today’s game, we were very poor. How we won that 3-2 is beyond me. Credit to the players for believing they could do it and in particular Sam Long who has been fantastic once again this season.
To be 2 down after 72 minutes is testament. Gills players must be incredibly deflated after that. A damaging defeat.
