Not impressed.

We actually played pretty well.

I think potentially we could go OTT with the performance because it was 100000x better than we’ve seen of late.

They hit the woodwork twice so could have easily been 3-0 at half time.

That said, how did Maynard miss that last one?

It’s an odd one

We play well - we don’t win
We don’t play well - we don’t win

Great mix there.

From where we were sitting, I thought there were a hole in the net when Maynard shot that last one
Can we play Accrington Stanley every week.

The GK slipped as well as Maynard closed in, seemed easier to miss than hit the target

From the highlights we had good chances 2nd half. If we'd have taken them then that would have been a cracking win

No


Of course he is. His best was Premier League. If the question is 'Is Maynard not good enough for us?', then the answer is definitely no.

Of course they are. Watch the highlights. Also watch the football show on Quest & listen to what the commentator says about how well we played on there. I bet you're gutted we only lost 1-0 aren't you?

Don't be pathetic Dan. No one wants us to lose. We just want a manager capable of getting results.

There’s no turning Dan’s head to our point of view, let him keep happy clapping his way through the season.

How many times have you seen us this season Dan?

Sooner or later even Dan has to see he is a lone voice in the wilderness and that we cant all be wrong

Got a lot of respect for Dan, although we have had cross arguments on occasions.

Have to say he is way wide of the mark on the JD issue. Those of us who have had to witness the dross served up at the One Call this season know that a managerial change is due and the sooner the better.


JD was an honourable appointment, reward for past success at the academy but sorry he has not been able to work his majic on full grown proffesional footballers, kids will have looked up to JD, men are different.

Given that yesterday's performance was much improved and not the "dross served up at the One Call", doesn't he deserve a bit more time ?

Or do we just judge him on half a season ?

You could say that 45 minutes of hope shouldn’t allow him more time.

He’s had a whole summer to work with this group, this group that were a joy to watch at times last season.

It’s been utterly crap this season, the Macclesfield debacle was the end for me.

The Radfords must act now.

You can also easily argue that going against what he believes in (ie defensive and dull) was actually a sign of weakness and that hes caved to pressure from others. Not to mention that last week was the game to go for it in and this week we would have accepted going there to be tight and hard to beat.

He can't win really but that's usually what happens when you've dug yourself this deep a hole.
