    ........ and we haven’t any players that are capable of unlocking these defences.
    We had one in Hammill but they let him go.

    Stendel needs to realise that power alone will not win every football game in England.
    We need players capable of beating defenders and who can cross balls into the middle for our two good strikers.

    Wycombe didn't park the bus one bit Nudger. Our own poor play today was the reason we lost. I don't agree that they played well, we were actually that bad it would have made most teams look good.

    Park the bus? Behave.

    And I’m surprised you haven’t mentioned that you think we ought to have kept Hammill before ...

    Hammill was past it.

    Wycombe didn't park the bus, they didn't even need to get it out of the depot we were that inept today.

    Why assist stats should be ignored

    Not park the bus - just come at us and close down. I thought Wycombe were worth their win. Whatever their technical ability they were effective and carried more threat than us throughout the game. No point having the ball if you do nothing with it.

    I have to agree that we need someone with the skill to beat a player get to the by line and put in a decent cross. Wycombe had a game plan and executed it very well. They let us have the ball in our half but closed us down as soon as we crossed the half way line. When our "attacks" broke down they hoofed it over the top and used their pacy forwards to put us under pressure. Nothing sophisticated but on this occasion it worked. I was hoping at half time that our coaching team would come up with something to counter this. Sadly they didn't. Only when Thiam was introduced did we pose any sort of threat.

    Defensively we looked vulnerable and were toothless in attack. Very disappointing.

    However, I anticipate that a performance like that will serve to motivate the team against the top of the league. If all games went to form nobody would bother to watch.

    It is much too early to write off our automatic promotion prospects.
