Yes really poor defensive header which went straight to Sharpe

Poor selection, O'Kane is crap, Sacko is useless, Phillips is average. All 3 did nothing.

Roofe shouldn't have started either.

Crap marking for the 1st, naive for the 2nd.

The goal was a highlight but apart from that nothing much, didnt deserve to win, probe didnt really deserve a point either.

Weidwald - 6 - Did nothing much wrong but you don't think he'll ever make the saves their keeper did
Dalas - 6 - Solid out of position but not a full back yet
De Bock - 6 - Solid, uninspiring, a Beradi clone but not quite as good
Jansson - 7 - goodish game back
Pennington - 6 - Lacks positional sense as a CB imo, good on the ball suspect off it
Alioski - 5 - Poor game what I saw, need a break and need to calm down and think
O'Kane - 2 - Bad captain, gave away FK's galore and the pen.
Forshaw - 6- Did ok at times anonymous at others
Phillips - 6 - Meh hardly noticed him tbh
Roofe - N/A - Sorry concussed by the time I found the stream
Lassoga - 7 - Did ok today, way to slow to lead the line but got the goal and put in some effort

Sacko - 0 - Nothing Naught Nada
Hernandez - 7 - Inconsistent performance but at least showed that he wanted the ball. Got the assist
Ekuban - 6 - Not much time but every time I see him I'm impressed, just needs a goal or two to brak out

Lonergan, Anita, De Bock, Janssen, Cooper, Klich, Forshaw, Gianni, Saiz, Lassoga, Hernandez

Roofe - Beradi - Vierra - Weidwald - Dallas - Phillips - Pearce

O'FuckingKane is back ...same as usual . CRAP . Is he really a footballer ? :dun:
No one sent off but in effect with O'FuckingKane on the pitch you are down to 10 men anyway .
Please can't they get rid of him . Its getting to the stage I really hate his name anywhere near the teamsheet Why can't another team suffer from having him in their team . Its really not fair .

When you end a game and Eunan O'Kane and Hadi Sacko are 2 of your 11 players, you question what the manager saw in them imo

Didnt expect anything so not to surprised, but why Hecky thought Sacko could change the game and why O'Kane played at all I'll never know.

One of these days, some of these decisions may go for us rather than against us. I know they say they even themselves out over a season but it doesn't feel that way at the moment.
There are non more easily offended than those that want to be.

wtf was heck thinking appointing O'Kane as captain? He was utterly useless. What happened to the "new manager bounce"? wow we really impressed our manager :roll: :bear:

We've never really had new manager bounces, also TC probably used up our new manager bounce for a while

Well it's about time that we did then :rant: Perhaps telling our players they don't get paid if they don't perform might be a start :evil: :bear:

Yes a strange decision BB but I think you'll find Heck is testing the water & will now know which players are up to the task now. Expect changes v Bristol City next Sunday as certain players have been fooling TC for months probably impressing in training but incapable of putting in a performance dealing with the pressures of a competitive match. Problem is he hasn't too many options due to those missing through suspension/injuries.

You can add two more passengers along with O'Kane & Sacko who may struggle to make Heck's first XI next week :lol:

I think if you asked TC, PH or anyone on here to name a strong starting XI (assuming everyone available) we'd probably all pick the same 6 or 7 and then be left filling in from the best of the rest. That has been the trouble all season we have a core group and then are probably carrying at least a couple every match and once the core group dwindled a bit then we really are struggling.

And the man to blame there is Orta. We've not replaced Wood and we've not replaced Bartley.

We've made efforts to shore up the midfield this January but injuries are not taking their toll in that department.

Pontus is rulled out as captain due to his temprement but instead we've had Cooper who has had two red cards recently and now O'Kane who has just returned from head-butting someone! God we miss Kyle Bartley!
