When the ball gets into the final third, the two forwards never look like they are going to do anything. Gordon has been poor but O'Keefe or James Clarke don't ook to be better options. Mind you if you don't try them you will never know. Gosh it is frustrating for us. I get the impression Nigel is ready to blowhis top.

In hindsight the January transfer window has been poor but the decisions made at the time were correct.
Clough could not have foreseen the injuries to Key players nor the total loss of form by Reid and Bowery who were both beginning to get their acts together at the time. He took a calculated risk to move two high wage earners off the bill fully expecting their replacement (Sarkic) to be an adequate replacement. He had no other remit than to stay in the league which I am sure he will achieve and the money saved will go towards next season’s promotion push. When he uses the saved money wisely, we will all sing his praises.

But NEVER looked like scoring

We were extremely poor today and when you are carrying two strikers who don't pose any threat to the opposition it makes it difficult to win matches. We can see it, why can't NC? I had hopes for the future when NC was appointed but I don't think I could stand another season of second rate football again if he thinks todays' effort was acceptable in any way. We can blame the players but NC should accept responsibility, he's the manager after all.
