No man is bigger than the club Aidy or Bayo. I'd happily kick them both into the wide blue yonder after that sh*t house display today.

What I don't understand is why everyone is turning on Aidy after this one game when we have mostly been sh*te all season. Yea, yea I know we finished in th playoffs but most games were painful to watch, so much hoofing.

But that's exactly the point, its been 'tolerated' because we got some points on the board but its dreadful to watch (try speaking to some Watford fans too) and therefore when it doesn't bring success don't be surprised by people's opinions and Aidy is too obstinate to want to change.

If Aidy did say that it seems to point to a stubborn streak that he has himself alluded to in the past and might not have got a grip of. Everyone needs to improve from top to bottom at the club. Get the post-mortems out of the way and then kick on again next season.

If you make a controversial team selection and win - you look a genius. If your team has lost the game after 25 minutes you look a t**t.

The thing is, if we could play the game again and start with what we as a consensus think is our best team, would we win? Answer no, because in truth Bradford are almost certainly better than we are. Still, next year if we can improve as much as we did this, then we might have a chance.

Haven't seen the Chron, but think it's rather unfortunate if that's what Aidy said as it suggests he thinks he made no mistakes yesterday, when it's clear to all that he did. I think most would be willing to forgive, however hard it is after such a poor performance in the biggest match of the season, given what he's done for the club so far.

Having said all that, I have to agree with Saint that the way Bradford played yesterday, I'm not sure we could have beaten them anyway.

We allowed Bradford to play well: remember, we finished above them in the division, they're not that special but we were so inept we made them look world-beaters!

We were gash yesterday and the most worrying thing about it is that the majority of that starting line up will be our regulars next season  Sad

They were the regulars who got us to Wembley in the first place though. Bash them all you like for the abject performance at Wembley, I certainly have. But they haven't been too bad across the season as a whole, as our league position shows.

That may be so but that eleven that started had only scored 25 goals between them in league matches this season. Throughout the season we have in general very poor away from home and even at home there has been plenty of games when I've walked away wondering how we managed to get the points.
They say the league table doesn't lie but I'm not so sure. How many of our starting 11 would've got in Bradford's team and vice versa.

AB deserves credit for what he's done over 18 months overall, but yesterday he made himself look like an arrogant tw@t. If it was me in the hotseat I'd have changed several things, for one not starting an unfit 35 year old with a poor record, even when Bayo isn't scoring he helps the players around him, O'Donovan and Nicholls having both benefited from playing alongside the big man this season. If we'd lost 1-0 then at least his comments wouldn't have enraged me, but when you've lost inside half an hour and played poorly throughout those comments are unacceptable. He shouldn't go, but the attitude should.

Obviously hindsight is a beautiful thing, but to come out after having watched that shambles and to say 'I wouldn't do anything differently'is ridiculous, at best stubborn at worst ignorant. Like a lot seeing the team sheet before the game I questioned the inclusion of Platt & Demontagnac and was worried about the outcome. Having to sit through that disaster there's loads of changes that might have helped. Langmead our best headerer of the ball to come into the deference to deal with Hanson who destroyed both Cameron and Carlisle in the air, Tozer's long throws were no threat at all so maybe Johnson a more natural right back to try and deal with Reid, an extra midfielder in Hornby to try and get some possession. These are changed I might not have made before the match but having watched the game surely worth a go, ok we might have lost 5-0 but surely better than sticking the same team out and losing 3-0.
