As 0-0 goes this isn't too bad. Some really decent football from both sides and a couple of choice tackles.

I would say Swindon have edged it but we've made their keeper work more.

All to play for at Crawley.

Jesùs Christ, you’re easily pleased! It’s dreadful stuff, almost pre season level.

One of the worst halves of football in a while from us. Really sloppy on the ball and too much hoofing. Luckily we’re playing Hartlepool who have given us some early Christmas presents.

Great performance from the Os today, as ever a nervy opening 15 minutes followed by a slow grinding down of the opposition.
It could have been 5 0 to be honest, Bradford folded after going 2 down and we looked threatening going forward all game.
Real team performance with 3 different goalscorers and 3 different assists.
Also Terminator predicting an attendance of 8600 is madness, fair play.

I feel like we’re making a conscious effort to play long though, I sit near Challinor in the main stand and he normally goes ape shit when Ben goes long unnecessary and he hasn’t done it once today.

We’ve played pretty poor

Simpson wasn't impressed last week with the way we threw it away but this week he needs to give himself a good look in the mirror.

Three at the back was overkill with the way the game was going. We needed an extra man in midfield. Charters should've been on at half time or pushed Mellish forward. Allowing Gibson to make more of a connection with Dennis.

A real lethargic performance and Sutton were experts at taking the flow out of the game.

More even than expected. Double save from the home keeper midway through the half when there was a suspicion the ball had crossed the line. Our commentary team thought Cobblers might have got penalty late in the first half.

Dismal, dreadful shite - again. 1 goal in 4 games.

Lindsey Out - and be quick about it.

Injury to a Swindon player here . Not sure what happened. Cross headed behind by a Crawley defender and the Swindon went down and straight away calling for medics.

Right in front of the Swindon fans and no shouts of you dirty bastard or stuff. Probably nothing dirty happened.

If there was still a debate over our worst ever side, there isn't any more

Not even boshed to turn the stream on any more.

You looked like a bottom half NLN side.

If we’d played anywhere near our best I reckon we could have got double figures.

We all had this labelled as a defeat today and the result against these won't make or break our season, but it was a spineless display, players looked shit scared from the off, entire back line, especially the keeper needs replacing, I've never known so many footballers mis calculating the bounce of the ball than our lot do, it's like their playing half cut.

We didn't play well and won 5-0. Hartlepool were genuinely absolutely shite, particularly at the back. So shit it's not even worth taking the piss out of or reading too much into it at our end.

I don't think many will say Challinor made a wrong decision moving now. Even if they did at the time, even if they did when we went up. Surely not now.

Even game. We had most of the possession and territory but Tranmere probably had the best two chances.

Our best two chances came through Hoskins but didn’t create a real quality chance. Last 10 Tranmere we hanging on a bit but still defended really well. Point apiece fair, Tranmere played some good stuff at times and looked a decent side.

Results went our way and increased our buffer to 4th to 5 points

Disappointed in our performance, Sutton weren't great though to give them their due they tried to play good football. We sank to their level and just didn't really do much positive the whole game.

Sutton time-wasting at the end got a bit silly. I can accept some shenanigans are an inevitable part of the game but the Sutton bench refusing to hand the ball over for a throw-in was a bit juvenile and let to some late handbags.

Still only 6 goals (one from open play) in 20 games.
Haven’t scored for five straight league games. The first time we have managed that in 61 years.
In the name of God Harris, just fuck off!!

Not been on here much recently as been working away, but managed to get back to the game against colchester.

In short, had we played anyone who could play football today we’d have been battered, thankfully we played colchester who were erm well, not great.

Did we deserve the win? not really - but ultimately the reason the winner came about was colchester’s comical attempts at time wasting.

We won’t be anywhere close to the top 3/7 given how we’re playing at present

Pretty even game at Plough Lane, the fine margins that were going in our favour earlier in the season really aren't now. Quite liked the new Wimbledon ground, incredibly poorly staffed on the bar though and they slip in at #2 behind Northampton in the shithouse table. Can't grumble at the result though, they put a chance away and we didn't. Still don't think there's anything to worry about. We're solid and weren't outfought today, just lacking some edge in front of goal. Two bang average sides.

Decent 3 points against Grimsby today. It wasn't a great game but how many are in league 2. To be successful in this league all you need to be is solid and be able to do the basics well. If we steer clear of injuries and add a couple in January there is no reason why we couldn't make the play offs.

Thought this other week when some on here where saying they weren’t convinced we were going down.

Worst squad we have ever had. Stockport win 5-0 away from home whilst not looking a great side at all. Tells you everything you need to know.

Squad is a shambles, mismanagement from the top has killed us, Raj is a cancer eating the club alive from within.

Can only see us doing a Scunthorpe next season as well. Fucking atrocious

Agree with all of that. An improved showing from us, Kane Hemmings had his best game leading the line in about nine months and Morris had a great game. Shame we couldn't take one of the many chances that came our way, but a good game for a nil-nil and a good away point.

And some fans also said they were glad Raj didn’t sell to the Hollywood duo,as the club would have been turned into a circus.
Brilliant.

Just thank your lucky stars you haven't watched what I've been forced to watch this season.

How is your player? I heard he had run into the goal post but in truth I'm none the wiser.

As for the game, your subs were great for us. Two jammy goals got us a win in a rather uneventful game. The BBC stats say you didn't have a shot on target. I'm goingto take that as a bloody big positive.

Released from hospital last night. No shots on target with 60% possession is a damning indictment of a totally inept approach to playing the game. Lindsey Out!

Scunthorpe is the best case scenario mate unless we are sold soon.

Absolutely diabolical we've ended up like this again, and the biggest piss take is the arrogant c*** programme notes saying Curle is the best manager we've had under his tenure, then thinking he'll get one over on DC, announces his perm deal on the day Challinor comes and wallops us 5. The only one who comes out of it with any decency is DC with what he said about us before and after the game. If he'd been backed he'd still be here.

The fuck out of our club, Raj.
