    OMG how can a ball go so far to edge of six yard box and keeper does not come and clear house!!!!!!?????? Starting to wonder about Craig as well or is someone paying him to make Forde look that bad, oh hang on he don't need any help!!!!!!!!!

      It seems that everyone is having a pop about the club at the moment so I will now list the positives of our 3 home games this season.

      1 - we don't have to watch replays as the Big Screen is still missing

      2 - I have seats empty either side of me as no f***** wants to turn up, giving me more space.

      3 - The food staff now smile as they rob you for £2.50 for a s*** hot drink.

    can anyone tell me WTF was forde doing for that 3rd goal? if he'd just stood f****** still he would of caught it! drop him, rid webster, get rid of beevers cos he don't wanna be here either. get bailey back. get a decent keeper get a solid center back and get another winger! then we might have a chance.

    Several problems here -

    Cummings is an awful footballer. No pace, never wants to get in on the overlap. Only started to put crosses in at the death… Ferguson doesn't look like a full back either as his positioning is poor.

    I expected Craig to be very vocal, a senior player and leader of the team. Clearly he isn't, as he failed to communicate with young Sid and also Webster in regards to who's marking who, who's gonna go up for the header etc.

    Forde is too slow, his kicking accuracy is pony, when he did throw it out one went long and one was under hit! Start playing it out from the back. Full backs have no confidence to do so.

    Playing bad long balls from the back makes Williams and Abdou instantly redundant. Players of Williams supposed quality should be bossing games from midfield at this level. Low confidence, so doesn't want to take the ball off Nelson/Craig. Notice how we were at our most threatening when Jim/Williams took the ball from the back???

    Morison and Gregory I feel sorry for, feeding off scraps. Morison trying to hold the ball up, even though he hasn't got great aerial ability. Knocking the ball down, but to who?! The system we play means that the centre midfield players can't get up to support them up front. O'Brien/Fred could solve this problem if played behind the strikers. Let PCH have a go on the wing!!

    Its clear to see, and has been for me from the start… in 2015 you can't do things cheaply and get away with it! Now we're stuck with a spine of supposedly senior players with 0 confidence… How is that going to help the likes of Fred, Thompson etc! I don't see any attempt to play football being made, its silly.

    Time to drop Williams Upson and Forde I'm afraid. I'd drop Cummings too, if we could. We need Edwards back ASAP. Maybe loan a pacey full back from a Premier League side if we can nick one.

    Sad times at the Den when the crowd cheer as loud for a throw in as they do for a goal! Sort it out Harris, you must know what needs to be done. A player of your intelligence and skill must surely want to try and play decent passing football!?

    OK ..Fordy etc,etc..but there's two 'defenders' there ,completely misjudged the flight of that ball ..surely,you'd expect one of them to get their head on that ball ,and nod it away or over the bar , ,at least put off the forward ,knock him off balance ?

    Harris really has got his work cut out here and some new signings are an absolute must! If Forde isn't dropped on Saturday then I have no idea what it will take. Our midfield is non-existent, Williams has been a passenger in the side for months now and needs to be dropped and why play Upson out wide when he is clearly lost out there and we have Paris on the bench?
    Cummings is truly awful, Beevers looks to have been made the scapegoat for Saturday even though he isn't a LB and where is Jack Powell?
    Another long season ahead!

    As far as I knoe for Man of the match it should be Fred Onyedinma but fair point on Jimmy Abdou even though he lead the team with team spirit and deccent playmaker for my opinion. Jack Powell,John Marquis and Thompson should have all played also Archer maybe them 4 players would change the game each timr cause its not getting anywhere at all.

    all 3 goals are an utter joke -

    1. left unmarked at back post

    2. outmuscled for original ball in

    3. wrong side of attacker and Forde's reaction is hard to explain other than he does that all the time

    Craig doesn't even need to make the challenge -and what a terrible one it was - abdou is covering back

    way too deep on every occasion - sign of a defence that doesn't know what it is doing

    it is no surprise though - put CBs at full back , then play wingers there as well - change every match - what do you expect Neil

      @timchimes: tim, if I did not know better by your description I would say that you were describing Coco rather than NH, but what you have described is exactly what I saw last night and it was shocking!!!

    people slagging cummings off - first goal left back missing - second goal left back issue , third goal bad positioning and not enough height covering the scorer - I am not saying he is good but look where the goals come from

    Harris doesn't know his best team - has had all summer to think about this and who he should keep faith in - why now does he find out about players' 'character' - any other manager would be slated

    he is panicking and desperately trying to find solutions - he says perhaps I do need new players - why doesn't he already know that - it is pretty stupid - all teams , and I mean all teams, are looking for better players/combinations - by playing people out of position he is saying I don't trust the replacements - so that begs the question why have them - have a 22 players squad with 2 people for each position that you feel happy to play

    He did know his best team but that team has let him down,left back a major problem until this Joe Martin appears, Ferguson is best left wing,need a right back to pressure Cummings who's average,and bring in a centre back and a centre midfielder preferably who can score/help defence out,strikers I'd leave, for me I'd have Fred and morro up front and drop Greggs ,and try and fit in PCh and obrien but they both play on right side so that might be out the question,we play better away so here's hoping !!.

    I'd get Forde in for a match fixing investigation! What was that third goal all about? Shambolic positioning, Jordan Archer all day long! Why wait for another 3 to 4 games of completely shocking goalkeeping to make the decision?

    Jordan Archer should be put in goal for next game, Forde has to be dropped down the bench, Now that Jimmy Abdou is back its down to him,Powell and Thompson to do attacking in midlfield and have Carlos Edwards once his proved his fitness to join MFC first team
