THE SOUTH END SAYS

OUR VIEW ON THE LATEST GAME
@tftse


We are a little disappointed that our prediction of another 1-1 draw wasn’t realised. On the bright side we scored three goals away from home to one of the pre-season promotion favourites. On the downside we decided to have a bad day in defence and let them score five goals, with most being avoidable.

“Surely, the biggest single mistake was appointing Mr Paul Groves as manager”

Weak defending at crosses, plenty of that, and giving the opposition ridiciulous amounts of space to set up numerous chances were the two biggest issues. Both teams had a poor day at the office in defence, hence the score. On a more positive note, we got plenty of the Groves mantra ‘balls in the box, balls in the box, balls in the box’ with O’Kane being a constant supplier with pinpoint accuracy.

As the manager himself stated, “Individual mistakes cost us goals and ultimately points”. Surely, the biggest single mistake was appointing Mr Paul Groves as manager.
The man deserves one more game to get it right, and at least it won’t be in the league, on Tuesday night. If he cannot pull out a half decent performance away to Pompey, he should slink back off to the reserves and let a proper manager have a go. Before anyone asks, no its not Mr Redknapp to save the day, get real, we reckon a good start would be Steve Cotterill.

When you don’t play a settled team it’s little wonder we look so fragmented all over the pitch #afcb

#afcb The Taxi for Groves has been asked to go round the block a few times

What an achievement it would be – groves and Brooke’s taking us to league two on a multi-million pound wage bill.#afcb

Is there a single #AFCB fan that wants Groves to keep his job? Struggling to find one.

If we stick with groves I think we might actually get relegated! #afcb

@_PhilS was a good performance today. Swift attacking, just bollocks Grabban and shite closing down. Should have scored 5 #afcb
