We're missing Hughes to be fair. And Alty score a lot of goals.

I see they also have Ashley Hemmings on loan, great player.

Hughes and Since at the back for me when fit, not sure if Burn has been at fault tbh but we badly need 2 solid experienced centre backs

Hughes is on the darlofansradio commentary team jollying things along. He’s a natural.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

The annoying thing is we can score goals but these 2 clowns stubbornly will not go with a back 4.

I'm not sure how going from a back 5 to a back 4 will help.

Stop our full backs attacking like they always seem to do.Just want a solid, defensive back 4.

But the problem is that they play the same in a back 4, leaving just 2 in defence.

Ordinarily 3-3 would be a good result.

Except we were 2 goals up again. Except all of the previous draws and defeats are coming home to roost.

So no, 3-3 isn't good enough. Just like the whole season. Just like the manager.

That is exactly the problem, far too many goals come from wide areas but our management duo are just allowing it to continue.

Are we really improving? I see us making the same basic mistakes every week and nothing is done to solve them

Correct. On the commentary it was obvious that when we lose then all there is no shape in midfield. Just like last year.

And they thought they had nicked it at the death but was ruled out for offside so could easily have lost 4-3.Its looking like we need to score 3, possibly 4 to win a game which is just ridiculous

Yes Harry, personally I’ll take that position too. We have had 5 loan signings in, now have some strength on our bench, and it sounds like today all our players put in a good show. Hopefully the lowest point of our season was reached two weeks ago.

Come on Darlo - let’s smash York.

Improving?

Let's not forget, most of the season has been dire. The quality of our performances has been dreadful.

Any improvement is from a really low base. A better phrase would be "We're crap, but not as crap as other games."

Throwing away a 3-1 lead is a massive failure.

A “crap” team would of been well beaten though. Like at least the last 5 visitors to Altringham.

It was a spirited battling performance but god knws how many goals we will have to score to win a game. We were undone down the flanks yet again.

TW's triple subs after 64 mins didn't help our cause, we conceded seconds later and spent much of the second half on the back foot desperately trying to hold on. Again gave them too much space, stood off and invited pressure.

We also caused their defence a lot of problems in the first half but as said the old weaknesses remain which means we dont look solid enough over the full 90 minutes to win a game. However
Saunders came v close to nicking it near the end. Galbraith had a superb game at the back.
