Sorry chas but warren is right, it is the service. last night we could have had torres up front but he would have hardly touched the ball! our only real chances came from set pieces. high ball crap all night. lets use width against the wombles otherwise it could be a long game!

The York manager was particularly keen to point out how successfully they'd dealt with our "aerial bombardment as it's how they set up for games" in his post-match interview on Saturday.

Lumping it up to any combination of Craig / Boother / Luke isn't going to work. Craig might get the odd chance to turn their defence but it can't be the only approach we have. It didn't work when we had that lump Matthews up there, so it's even less likely to work with the players we have at present, especially as centre-backs in this league tend to be able to deal with the high stuff comfortably.

Wasn't there last night, but doesn't sound pretty by the sounds of things. However, I WAS at Camden Roundhouse to watch Fleet Foxes who get a big :thumbup:

tbh we were poor. long ball just isnt working. on the times we play the ball around on the ground we can beat and even compete with some of the best teams around. it seems the loss at york got rid of what confidence we had and replaced it with the usual hit and hope routine. atm we are in a real relegation battle for the first time in 4/5 years

galey weve got every bit of faith in you, COYH!
And then darling, just for one day, yeah, we can fight and we can win
And if only for a little while, we could insist on the impossible

Lack of service is a prob which is crazy considering how many midfielders we seem to have. Still think playing narrow stifles our play and reduces options. When we widen play we get greater movement and look more threatening.Our passing game can be bloody great. Have to agree with some of the other lads when they say about getting another striker, especially if Boothy is still carrying an injury (I can see how good he is gonna be when fully fit). But if one comes in one would have to go from the squad somewhere I would think. :thumbup: :thumbdown:
