Attendance down revenue down sponsorship down, no settled team no idea of best line up, 2 wins in twelve at home, can't beat tranmere in cup . The fans who DF said can see what we're trying to do better try explain to me cos all I can see is disaster after disaster . The BEN is letting the real fans down by not asking real questions Pathetic !

Knight's blunders today surprised no-one. I understand that the manager does not have many defenders available, but I think I would be tempted to try someone from the development squad. How much worse could it be ?
The three loan players who provided the team with much-needed backbone are already being missed and I wish the manager luck in his efforts to bring them back. The talk of having to sell before we can buy has me wondering which of our players might tempt a cash offer from another club.

Get Zak Clough in the squad for a run. Add a couple of development defenders into the mix job done. Those boys must be chomping on the bit.
