    That match against Fulham should give you MORE reason to kick off tonight! It showed that we are capable of that level of performance. If we had been soundly beaten against Fulham as we were against Wednesday and not chuffing Carlisle, there wouldn't be half as much angst on here. But the fact is that the team outplayed Fulham, and tonight got humiliated. Blame inexperience all you like but it will not wash with me.

    It was a garbage performance. We are allowed to express our opinion on here. That is not being fickle.

    We might not be garbage on Saturday.

    270 minutes of competitive football played so far, ONE goal scored, 5 conceded. Sound good to you?

    Out of interest how will you be in a position to make an informed decision on their effort? (Asking for a friend)

    One or two having an off day is not out of the ordinary, the entire team is something else entirely.

    Hope you've got mates you can trust. I'd trick you by saying we are awesome and then laugh as you fumed all the next match.

    Not being funny, but this isn't like the battle of Waterloo having to wait for news from the frontline via messengers on horseback, I can gauge how we have played from such wizardry as YouTube or Sky Sports etc.

    I'm engaging in gallows humour mate, tonight was grim. It's your right to go, not go, whatever. Take it easy.

    It was clearly a woeful and inept performance and folk have a right to be disappointed with that but refusing to go again?

    When we’ve played one home league game and won it, then played badly at home once, losing the first home game in nearly eighteen months?

    It was a flat performance but let’s be fair, the players are human. None of them went out to intentionally not put the effort in but subconsciously they would all to a man have not seen the game as being as important or difficult.

    Against Fulham there was a 14000 crowd, the vast majority behind them for the whole game. Last night at a tenner a ticket there were what, 5000? It had the intensity of a behind closed doors friendly or an u23 game. You can’t blame the players for not being as intense - there’s a difference between not trying and not being as motivated as the opposition. The lack of motivation is not the fault of the coaching team on this occasion either, it was all down to the circumstances of the game. It’s not that they weren’t trying, more that the opposition wanted it more. That, and some poor individual errors, led to what we saw.

    I’m not seeking to excuse them completely by the way. It was quite a spineless performance. We aren’t going to play well every game in the league, and they need to be able to scrap better and try and at least get a point on days we aren’t playing well. Yes, if we are as bad on Saturday we can start to worry. But we won’t be - and even if we lose the game it isn’t the end of the world. We need to look where we are after ten games. If we’ve won two or three more games and drawn a couple then points wise we’ll be bang on target and probably comfortably above the bottom three.

    Last night we were quite terrible - though in that we still had 70% plus of the ball, had 17 shots and 9 on target. Stats don’t tell the tale of course but we could easily have got to 1-1 and from there even with a poor performance could still have gone on to win. As it was we went two and three down and knew that was that, and pretty much got worse from there.

    It was terrible, folk have a right to be annoyed, but it is one game and I really hope that the majority of the support are stronger than to stay away after one performance.

    We rarely get much from Hillsborough and always seem to be awful in the league cup. It’s not time to panic yet.

    We had 76% possession because their defence kept giving us it for another laughable attempt at an attack whilst they stood with GoPro cameras trying to get enough footage of us running it out of play so they could send a clip in to Harry Hill for £250.

    Teams that won in the League Cup yesterday when they shouldn't have:

    Maccelsfield beat Blackpool
    Grimsby beat Donny
    Lincoln beat Huddersfield
    Cambridge beat Brentford
    Crewe beat Middelsborough

    So after we beat Fulham, folk on here were talking us up no end.

    Then we lose at Wednesday. It was a not terribly coherent performance, but wasn't absolutely terrible, either.

    And now we've lost to Carlisle and didn't appear to try all that hard.

    I was taking the mick a little last night but, seriously, it's been 3 games and 1 of them was a cup competition that I'd rather not be in.

    Tranquila.

    People are entitled to th
    Are you just trying to justify it in your own head??..... We were well beaten and looked out of ideas. Of course we move on but to just disregard it as a nothing match and that it doesnt really matter seems abit strange. A win on saturday will be massive but it still wont make everything ok, you cant just brush performances like this under the carpet.

    Aren't we all trying to justify anything we say or think in our own heads? Whose head are you using?

    My point is simple: I don't attribute much significance to a single bad (terrible, hamshank, etc.) performance this early in the season in a cup competition, whereas you clearly do. I don't think it follows, for example, that because we 'looked out of ideas' last night, we will on Saturday.

    I listed the other teams that "should have won" (and didn't) in the hope that it might provide a little perspective.

    A hamshank now and again never hurt anybody.
