Early signs not good this season. Can't score. Mid table at best I'm afraid. See you next year.

id rather get the jittery performances out the way 1st up as the last 2 seasons we've started really well.

Blooming hell. .11 changes. Never played together before. Down to 10 men. Hey we won 👋

Spot on Red_Dog, apart from our normal early goal gift and Smith's red card, what else were the 10 men expected to do? Somehow we've snatched a victory from the jaws of defeat. Some of our fans need to lower their expectations and take a chill pill. 43 games to go and still in both cups. FTID.

I agree Scouse.It's the early stages of the league cup and lots of managers treat it with contempt. It's not for me to say whether that is right or wrong and I certainly will not be hyper analytical about last night's performance. The result went out way it really is that simple.

Quick, Panic. Our B Team who had never played together before just got through to the second round of the League Cup! OMG! Quick, let's give up on the first team now even though we won with 10 men.

Really, get a grip mate. :)

You lot are like Corbyns momentum,the slightest hint of criticism and your on having a go .have a look at that ‘b’ team again and tell me how many championship clubs would like it,let alone bury,even before we went down to 10 there was very little happening, I think we will be ok , but you spend the money this blokes spent and pressure and expectation will naturally follow.And don’t think the owner won’t get twitchy if it doesn’t come together quickly either, the Devon lad was only having his say ,so why not just let him have it without taking the mick or trying to be clever?

To be clear, I completely disagree with the first sentance in this thread. The early signs are positive!

I'd also add that we are still in both cups, undefeated and in the play-off places. We have the strongest squad in ages and there are goals in this team. Great news!

We are not going to win against every team we are expected to beat but we will win more than we lose or draw and we will make progress.

Whether that progress is good enough for some remains to be seen but starting a "feeding frenzy" on the team, manager and individual players every time we concede a goal or miss a chance or lose a game is not going to get us to where we all want to be.

We are not going to be the best team in the league but we are going to be better than most. So sit back and enjoy the ride instead of undermining all the hard work and progress off the pitch by demanding/predicting change of personnel at every twist and turn!

May 2019 is the time to vent the spleen if the collective expectation is not met. Feeding a baying mob never got us anywhere?

I totally agree Redinexile.Knee-jerk reactions are very counterproductive and sometimes even dangerous! Just to remind those of you spouting negativity we've played four games in ten days with virtually a new squad!

How many times have we had an unbelievable start to the season and ended up nowhere? I remember Andy Reids last game for us, getting injured against Derby. Pretty sure we were top of the table before that game and some of us had already assumed we were going up - season then went downhill from there. Just because we start a certain way doesn't mean we play like that all season. Anyway, 4 games in a week and a half and unbeaten in 90 mins (just!), it's a long old season and we're only just getting started. And we look far more solid at the back than when relying on Matt Mills!

Woah there Stevie boy - calm down 😳 he was implying that he’d given up on the season already (see you next season) whichever way you look at it that isn’t coming from a fan whose anything but a knee jerker and look where that’s got us over the last few years. Surely we’ve got to give everyone more than 3-4 games to prove themselves??

2tone please point out anywhere in any of my above posts where I said anything overly critical of the team or manager but there seems a lynch mob mentality with some on here with any one who doesn’t agree with them, you can disagree without taking p***

3 league games and 1 cup match without defeat and the panic button hasn't just been pressed it's been smashed to bits. 13 new players in would take time for any manager to find his best 11 especially when you throw into the mix the 20 or so players that were already at the club with a big percentage of that 20 all vying for a first team place. Give the team chance to get to know each other. Unfortunately they won't gel as quick as Figgy and Foxy did.

Stevie I wasn’t talking about any of your posts relating directly to the team - I was talking about you appearing to back someone who is prepared to throw the towel in after less than 6 games - sorry but as far as I’m concerned that wouldn’t come from a supporter. Disagree with team selection,tactics etc and offer alternatives but to just throw the towel in??? Not my idea of support

Taking the pi** on this site is legit buddy. Your comments were about as knee jerk as they get so expect more of it if you keep having a fit whenever someone takes the Mickey.
