We put out an under strength team which has never played together before. Some of that team had not played any football in anger yet this season and were far from match fit. This was always the plan and was stated as such days before kick off.
Yes there were obvious faults but give Morcambe some credit as they certainly didn't look relegation fodder to me. They played some pretty and effective football and were always a threat. They looked organised and knew what they were doing. I don't think they will finish bottom half and will comfortably stay up.
Get behind the lads and stop undermining them.
Yeah, stop having an opinion everyone.
Morecambe also made 7 changes as opposed to our 5, so the under strength team argument doesn’t stack up as they were the same and had 10 men. We had more than enough ability on the pitch last night to go and win that game.
It’s very disappointing to not beat Morecambe in either game, particularly with our squad which we know is capable of much better. At the moment I wouldn’t say I’m worried, but more a bit concerned. Dempster doesn’t have any past experience to fall back on that suggests he will get this right which is why a quick start is so important for new managers... things can go south pretty quickly if it doesn’t go to plan. We need a win to come soon as pressure will just keep building game on game until we do win and it’s not ideal at this early stage.
Hopefully on Saturday we start to see some signs, and most importantly a result to indicate that he is the man to take us forward. At the moment it’s hope rather than belief that he can.
