Last 5 games we've averaged the same amount of shots on target as cards (it's 2).

That was absolute tripe. Often in our recent history we have seen results like that whilst teetering on the brink of poor form and a hammering has become the tipping point? We are in real danger of imploding and Curle has to get a response to that performance? That was a a poor second half as you are likely to see, Fleetwood without the luck and players not giving full commitment and effort to the cause? The players have apparently adopted the philosophy of ďfcuk itĒ, and that always sets off the alarm bells in even the most ardent supporters of the management team.

I couldn't see the chances of changing the Manager up till now........but something has to be done ....Curley certainly isn't getting the best out of this lot / load of CR@P.

Awful recruitment decisions.......I would like to see the Budget he has had to play with.

But this lot will lose supporters in droves and it will take a lot to win the fans back.

Curley & KT are lucky the crowds haven't been allowed in ....how many matches would they have been boo-ed off.

37% possession tho' lol.

I'm pretty sanguine about things tonight. Earlier in the evening my little girl nearly choked on a sweet. We were banging on her back and nothing was shifting. She started going a funny colour so I swung her upside down and pounded on her back for dear life and it suddenly came out and she started crying. I'll take that as my win for the evening and it puts the outcome of a shžt football match into perspective.

Having said that, on another evening where I was in less of a philosophical mood, having watched that garbage I'd be jumping up and down and screaming obscenities at the telly.

Sowerby injured tonight as well apparantly. Are we able to recall Warburton to at least bolster the numbers. I couldn't be bothered to watch tonight's game, sounds like a good decision.

Saturday should be fun.

12% of that was picking the ball out of the back of the net.

I have in the main been backing KC to keep us up but I can't really defend him after that, surely he's embarrassed.

Have to agree with the 'moaners' that I would rather lose 4-0 to a Pompey side playing while playing half decent football than 4-0 to Oxford playing like that!!

Letís not forget it was dross for much of last season itís not just down to recruitment, we got lucky in 2 games. Curle is the common denominator there. I think budget will also play a part but you look at Wimbledon, Accrington etc and they manage to hold their own. Tactics have been poor and as I stated at the start of the season, his waiting game never paid off and now the confidence has gone too. Is that just results or has Curle now lost the players as well as a large percentage of the fan base.

Just look at the next 5 games ...can anyone see us getting more than 1 point ! and how many goals will ship Huh?

That should, on form, leave us rooted to the bottom and with 2 teams below us having a game in hand as well.

All so sad !

C'mon players don't give up ....have some pride and fight.

Hopefully we will be placed in tier three so you can be saved the experience.

15 defeats in 25 League games since the Derby FA Cup replay defeat.....The two good games in the playoffs make you forget the one that was garbage.

For the first time this week the dissenting voices grew loud, loud enough to get the media asking questions. Curle fires off a riposte that we will play more on the front foot.....and then we get that tonight.

Where do we go now?

A key difference has still been not replacing Morton, Wharton, Goode and Turnbull. Curle must realise that. Morton was a key factor in winning those play off games, he had pace and chased everything. Oliver will be close to out scoring our entire team this season if we carry on like this.

 That was as bad that I have seen for a long long time even worse in that game at Bristol Rovers when Page lost the plot. The first half was pretty boring and so where Oxford. The second half was a display that lacked discipline, work rate, leadership - you name it. Perhaps the aspect of the loss was the team disintegration and apparent lack of effort by all players. Should Curle go after that display it's difficult to keep the faith with potential worse to follow. From experience, it does not seem to help the Club by ditching the Manager as quite a few of you will be clamouring for next managers head as results go awry. The thing is that in spite of our best efforts we are still not adrift or indeed even in the relegation zone .....yet. My own POV is we don't dispence of KC as it will be seen as knee jerk reaction after today defeat with a team  misssing at least 7/8 players. Furthermore we have no obvious successor to fill his place. On other thing I was disappointed to see how ineffective Holmes and Adams were; perhaps it was due to the shoddy performance of those around them. No kneejerk reactions and some fans need to hold their nerve and loyalty.

I'll do my best but it's not easy after that shambles this evening.
I think a decision will have to be made before the transfer window opens.

Compare the 180 mins against Chelts and Exeter back in June against the 180 mins weíve just played against Crewe & Poxford ....
Its bloody unbelievable!
Same manager, similar sort of teams. New players to a man worse than the ones they replaced.
We canít blame injuries, we canít blame finances we canít blame Covid!
Weíve replaced good with average. Iím not willing to blame KC 100% for that.
Maybe Shoeys right - KT!!?? OMG how bad are things when you think Shoey maybe right about anything!!!
