    We’ve failed to score in 4 of our last 6 games! So we might have to disagree on that.

    But let’s have the conversation at the Season’s end to see if it makes a difference.

    Which striker would people have brought in in January within our budget. I couldn’t think of one then and I can’t now.

    Not the one that’s currently on loan to Bradford. Crazy decision that one.

    I agree but at the same time I still can’t think of another one

    We have failed to score with injuries and suspensions against 3 top 6 sides. We also scored 5 goals in two games very recently We ve kept clean sheets.

    If you read other forums they moan about the quality coming off the bench, you're not going to have a Moore mark 2 ready to come on and shine at the drop of a hat.

    I bet Stendel is telling the players he's proud of their efforts tonight and I for one am.

    Exactly. It's a bit tricky at present with injuries and suspensions but the players we can bring off the bench are different to the first 11, so it can't be easy to adapt to playing us, and because we're always going forwards we can pressure teams so effectively.

    We are constantly told that the club has replacements lined up for any player which leaves!
    Yet in January 2 left and only one came in who is near the first team.
    If Styles is a ready replacement, why isn't he starting, just asking the question?

    And I go back to the point which several have made all season, we are one light up top.
    Vic isn't ready and should be trying to prove himself at L2 level on loan.

    You are right DT
    All good sides strengthen whilst they are doing well.

    We’ve just drawn against 3rd and 6th with this apparent weak squad.

    Good point imo moore out,pinnilos out, brown out, mcgeehan out and then 1st half we have to bring dougall off and play Williams in the holding role and fryers left back who hasn't played a game since Accrington away.

    Well, unless you work for the Club on the recruitment side of things, the good news is....you don’t have to - but the Club do - and they didn’t. We then lose one of the only two Strikers we have (for the season) days after the window closes. It’s a gamble the Club took that didn’t pay off. Whether we pay the ultimate price of finishing out of the top two remains to be seen.

    Incidentally that’s why Stendel is such a genius. Player decisions are taken for ‘commercial reasons’ which weaken the squad and yet he still pulls miracles out of the bag!! I’d hoped the point of this new affluent Board was ......he wouldn’t have to.
