Agreed another big following yet the players don't turn up against a team in the bottom three.

Play-off bound on current away form unfortunately.

How about get behind the lads who have got us into fourth in the league?

Only bottle jobs is the raspberries who were slagging us off and giving fingers to our own side

From the first kick we were second best. The first 10mins we were bullied and didn't get the ball down. Looked like there was an argument on who was taking the penalty. PV are a poor team and played all around us. They picked up all the loose ball and our final ball wasted and devoid of a finish. Away from home we aren't at the races at the mo, we are missing the injured and suspended players one thinks.

Is it a bottle job if our best striker in the air gets his face smashed in? If our leading scorer decided to give a lino the bird? Or our best RWB Gets his leg broken?

We have 1 fit and available striker and he's out of sorts. Our defence has taken a few injuries and suspensions recently and has upset the balance.

Bish has been 1 yellow away from a 2 game ban since our form dipped. A yellow vs Crawley and he's banned for 2 games. Avoid a yellow vs Crawley and he then becomes 6 yellows away from a ban.

It wouldn't surprise me if macca is started on Tuesday and bishop rested.

Well said Gazza, the voice of reason, we have had some terrible luck recently with injuries and this squad is threadbare.

To be honest, you caught us on a good day, Miller could have a 3 or 4 today! Askey had clearly done his homework on you but I was expecting an equaliser from the corner at the end...best of luck for the rest of the season, I’m sure you won’t be far away...

A lot of managers have recently done a lot of homework on us, press and pass the ball out to the wings. We don’t have an answer at the minute.

See you next season Shropshire, for I doubt we've the steel to get up via the playoffs. Hope you send Clownty down though, the trapdoor's opened a little further for them.

Watched stags against Newport, notts and vale and was awful against all three, no complaints with the results.

I know we cant win every game but we are not challenging or even playing well against poor teams

Bottlejobs? The title of this thread let me down, rather hoped it would be about Dolphins and not what I watched this afternoon. :(

The same ‘special’ that led us so many games unbeaten?

The January window has confused his thinking in my eyes, Grant in the side away from home has unbalanced us, Hamilton up front isn’t working.

Back to 3-5-2 ASAP or bite the bullet and change to 4-4-2 go for it.

it’s that bad, old Stag & young Yorkie have turned their phones off on the way back from Vale

the last text said it all, “bullied & no passion, playing like they don’t care”

This is the crux for us, teams destined to go up automatic suffer the odd one or two against the bottom boys. It happens to often to us imo to be serious top 3 boys.

Just listened to Flitcroft on the way home and he's admitted Newport was poor, County very poor and today poor again.

Its a trend and one he'll be addressing tomorrow with the players. Sounds like he will be ringing the changes Tuesday and attempting a different style away from home going to only take the players with the right character.

Could easily see Macca starting Tuesday then, and I hope Preston is back.

Look, being serious were having a blip.

Grants gone AWOL too many players don’t seem up for the fight, it’s like we’re going through away games on auto pilot.

The home form is fine, it’s the away form, especially since the new year.

From 7 points clear of 4th to 4th inside 2 months, that’s a special effort

Notts County away - Zero shots on target against the bottom side in the country

Port Vale away - Concede 2 (should have been at least 4) against the lowest scorers in League 2.

Worrying!

Flitcroft thinks we can go to teams scrapping for survival and play pretty football ! Very naive indeed, sometimes you just got to be prepared to scrap and have a plan b, he's going to balls it all up.

The last three away games have been more than disappointing. Time to press the panic button? I don't think so.
