Up date here please.

I predict Cartman to start and to bag one :thumbup:

4-3-3 with Syers and Gillies in midfield? Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me.

(Or we'll destroy them 5-0...)

Not bad for a team in the bottom half of NLN who haven't won in 6 games.

Wasn't just the players who let us down today, absolutely no atmosphere. Piss poor.

The only good points today are , we got a point Cartmans back and I thought Vaulks played well , apart from that pretty poor.

Brutal attendance, brutal result.

Attendances i thought would be higher, but i think BM leaves a lot to be desired. Aside from being able to go for a beer and walk from the town, I think HP was actually a better experience. Sigh. We'll get there. There'll be more days like this though.

That performance was awful. Couldn't work out what the plan was. Fergie huffed and puffed but accomplished zero. Why didn't Thommo come on for Gillies?

I wasn't there today, but i'd assume because if the games I have seen this year, he's been very poor? (Not that Gillies has excelled particularly)

Where on earth is Wheatley? Is he injured? If we're not going to give him a go now, when nearly everyone is out of form, then what is the point.

I think I'm more disappointed with the performance than the result. The kind that has a knock on effect on attendance. Sub 1000 on Wed?

I agree...

Anyone know why we were selling cup tickets on general sale today? I was there at 2pm and there was a separate table for general sale cup tickets...

As far as I'm concerned the season fizzled out by the end of August. Hate to say it but after years of progress we may have passed our high water mark.

We appear to be stuck in a vicious circle. Gate prices were put up so that the budget wouldn't be reduced with the expectation that we'd be up there challenging. However, we're not, so people are voting with their feet. We desperately need a cup run to improve publicity and interest.

Disappointing. Poor crowd too - I dread to think what it'll be like on Wednesday.

The players tried, there was plenty of effort, but next to no creativity. I thought Cartman may have given us a spark, but he was anonymous until he missed what appeared to be our best chance (although it was hard to see as I was sheltering in the Tin Shed from the rain). Something needs to change to give us something different. Maybe time to give Saunders a go from the start - at least he'll give us some pace.

Vaulks looked like he had potential at least.

I feel pretty much exactly the same BUT whats the alternative? The Arena? I suppose we could try and save up millions to build our own ground, but we can't even afford any more seats right now.

BM is what we've got, so we have to try and make BM as good as it can be.

If they had been a bit more clinical in front of goal they could easily have won it as they had the best chances. And it's difficult to see how we are going to patch together a defence out of what's left from the injury wreckage. Looked like Portas had a hamstring problem and Collins hobbled away. Didn't look good.

Extra seats?... It doesn't look to me like we'll be troubling the judges this time around.

Piss poor. I thought the performance against Spennymoor was awful but this was just as bad. Were fairly dominant first half, Caton looked dangerous and Portas had a good showing at right back, but second half we seemed completely out of ideas to break down a team that had turned up for a 0-0. Attendance not great but you can't expect to convince people to pay £14 to come and watch that.
There were some kids slide tackling each other on the sideline that were better entertainment than the match.
