Not good enough today. Lacking creativity and desire, zero pace... we made it easy for Oldham.

Playing 10 men can be disruptive, and we just didn't adapt to it. We probably deserved a win, but can't complain too loudly - Oldham did the job.
Dont tell me you was playing against 10 men yet again ffs
its every week

I don’t mind wanking his if he wanks mine.

Not our best performance during this fantastic run, but the conditions played their part. Fantastic result, nonetheless.
no i would rather support the skiprats

Grimsby and Southend, you can fight it out between yourselves- we've thrown in the towel.

I thought we looked more interested than we had since October; we put the effort it, high pressed which is our best attribute and wanted it more. That alone should see us pick up results.

Hursty did well, he’s raw, was at Bradford PA but coming good, should score though first half.

We took Wozza off and moved back to 4-3-3 which ended up more 4-5-1 as Manny is a central midfielder.

Big game against Stevenage now, win that and things will look better overall.

We've abused the furlough system and we are deservedly getting punished. The players we made room for are shitter than what we had.

Let’s be honest all 3 of us deserve relegating this season, pretty staggering that one of us will actually survive.

I imagine your players are still trying at least?

What I've just watched, I'm hoping we go down just to get a few of these c unts off our books.

After all the tears this morning I’m glad our game was off, good set of results elsewhere that we didn’t manage to ruin with our incompetence.

Oh, and thanks Grimsby fans for making out that Jolley is a decent manager - you've made us look right mugs.

Yet we still managed to pick up more points with the other lot

Decent game at Prenton Park. Would say we deserved to win but fair play to Oldham and what a strike for the equaliser. Only have ourselves to blame for not taking all 3 points and missing a penalty didn’t help either.

Big game midweek now at Carlisle.

Bolton seem to be getting the rub at the moment, even the fixture computer is on your side!

Mansfield were quite frankly shite in that second half.

That lengthy break has killed us, but It’s the Colchester and Bolton results that have done us in even more, should have been six points but instead we got one.

No complaints today, Cambridge didn’t have to play great to win but they were the better side and got three goals so you can’t complain to be honest, the problem is we’ve played Sunday, Wednesday, Saturday without change that’s not been forced because our depth is non-exsistant.

We’ve gone from five wins on the trot, 8 unbeaten to two points in four games, shocking collapse.

Masi I know you’re new to league two but that way of thinking in this league usually bites you in the ass. Don’t get ahead of yourself.

Mansfield were very poor but I don’t believe they are that poor, they just played 3 games in the space of 8 days and we took full advantage.

This is why it is going to hurt teams once they start getting the fixture pile up. We didn’t get out of second gear really.

We’re safe from relegation now, still top but won’t be once Paul Mullin stops scoring. 22 in the league for him now.

But I remember Chipmunx telling us back in the summer that Barrow would be 'pushing on' or words to that effect anyway? Even though we were all telling him not to underestimate L2 :dk:

Newport v FGR put back 22 hours so chose to watch the Cheltenham v Bradford match.
Cheltenham are our closest rivals in both league and miles distance.
Fair result with a Bradford 2-0 away win in very windy conditions.
Cheltenham were disadvantaged with a few 1st team players absent.

What was amusing during entire the match were tweaks that were read out aloud. Half of them came from Bradford fans complimenting the Gloucestershire commentary team - well they would wouldn't they, Bradford won. ;)

At end of game I checked out both team's forum: Cheltenham had less than two pages [ round about 34 to 40 comments] while Bradford had 22 pages with 433 comments!!!!
And those on the Bradford forum were very good. Compliments to them.

new to this league but not football. For what its worth i dont think we deserved to win the last two but win them we did.
We now have quality on the bench and quality to rest players....is our team squad good......no its about the worst we have ever had, is it better than pre christmas.........streets ahead
I have said it previously and i will say it again the are no good teams in this league, but at last we now are moving in the right direction.
Off the pitch FV are moving this club forward as seen with two appointments this week.
Sooner rather than later we will be out of this division and ready to move out of league 1.....The infrastructure and people involved at the club will see to that

We started the second half really brightly but a mistake at the back gave Bradford the second and from then on we never looked like getting back into it. Not too concerned as it was an even game overall against a good in form side, they were just more clinical than us.

I thought the first half was even, but we were absolutely dreadful once that second went in. Not once looked like getting back into it after that.

One of those days, we dust ourselves down and move forward.

Bradford fans - if Radio Yorkshire (or whatever it is up there) want to offer Peter Matthews a shed load of money to be a commentator, then please take him off our hands. Have you ever heard of a home commentator being so biased against the home team?

A huge win and the run continues, edging out again one of the best sides in the league away. Orient at home Tuesday with a chance to leap frog them.
