    3rd goal looked far too easy

    Very poor performance. Beevers was very uncomfortable at fullback. Webster not clever enough to deal with the sharpness of Coventrys movement though its fair to say our midfield were overrun by Coventry and that put a lot of pressure on the defence. Forde maybe questioned for the first goal but not sure there was much he could do about ant of the others, though it strikes me he has lost his appetite somewhat?? Not as commanding and domineering a figure as he once was. In short I thought only Fred played anywhere near his best. We started relatively well too and looked well up for it. i'll finish by giving credit to Coventry who looked sharp, fast bright and clever. Their movement and passing was excellent.

      @Aaaup:
      There is no "maybe" about the first one it was 100% Forde's fault. The second goal saw him beaten at his near post. The third was probably a lost cause but he should have stood up. The last goal was an unfortunate deflection to set the bloke up and although he was at a bit of an angle it was well hit so I don't blame the keeper.

      More generally though I have no idea who this commanding and domineering figure is that you are referring to cos Forde had never been either - shouty and whingy after the event yes but his career has tended to veer between flapping about like a headless chicken and being stapled to his line. Given a choice I tended to prefer the latter technique.
