I think as a club our set up in general, our ownership, chief executive, manager and playing staff and even the atmosphere amongst the players, around the club and amongst the fans is a million miles better than 1987 and 2016.

Feels like that. Canít see us closing down games against good teams even if we get ahead. And canít see us out-battling teams at this end of the table. Just canít see where the wins are coming from.

Our lack of a quality midfield is the problem and iím not sure we can fix it with the players we have in the squad...

Meanwhile Watford are beating Pool 2-0. Canít see any clubs worse than us.

We begged for this. So many results have gone our way lately but weíve bottled every chance to get ourselves out of danger. Pathetic.

Players have let us down. The points tally going into this weekend was a disgrace, simply inviting teams to leapfrog us. You can't lose 3 games in a row, 2 of them most definitely winnable, and expect other teams won't take advantage.

This has been a shit season.

You canít purely rely on being less shit than 3 other teams, we all know this from experience. I fully expected results to go against us this weekend while weíre not playing in the league, because thatís generally how it goes.

Whatever happens tomorrow, the players will have to step up and get some results by any means necessary.

All this game has shown is we're incredibly slow on the counter attack. This Sarr bloke has ripped Liverpool apart.

You need pace in the final third to beat the better teams. We had it in the MON days and our results v other top 6 were pretty good on the whole.

And to keep believing in what you're doing when 1 up.
