On paper that looks a very attacking team. Feel a bit sorry for Bent I thought he might keep his place in the team. UTV

We're better away from home and you wouldn't expect them to sit back at the tastefully named coral windows stadium so fair play, no point playing for a draw and taking them back to our place. 0-3 to us, and hope that Bencht gets 15 mins as the shop window is well and truly open.

What this team needs is more young players who aren't good enough :- ) Act now Lerner/Lambert or ***** off. If he trotts out more crap about honest endeavour, and NOT needing experienced players, I will find him. It's obvious you stupid nause. Most embarrassing result in living memory....and I am quite old. Why is it impossible to have 1 leader in the team. Might that have an opinion that will clash with Lamberts?

Outplayed by Bradford so fair play to them but just re-read that sentence....OUTPLAYED BY BRADFORD. The deluded prat will probably talk about it being a good result as we got an away goal. P.S. BENNETT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. he just got monstered by a couple of league 2 players on a couple of hundred quid a week. Another great lower league find Lambert. I'm SURE we will sell him for more than we paid for him (sarcastic emoticon) If he doesn't say that was crap and that the players were a disgrace he does need to be sacked. Softly softly isn't working!!!!!!!

Total disgrace, complete rubbish. Players aren't good enough but I blame PL completely. No organisation, no ability to defend set pieces, no shape. Bent and Ireland left on the bench, and when bent had to go off who does he bring on? Graham Burke ffs, leaving Ireland and samir carruthers on the bench. Complete *****, even worse manager than the idiot we had last year and possibly the worst I've ever seen (to put it in perspective that includes turner, McNeil, venglos etc)

I am sick of being embarrassed by this club. Its beyond a joke. Bennett rubbish, Clark rubbish, Delph crap,Bannan useless. Somebody just put us down and be done with it. We re a lame horse. Bradfords night, we still should have scored 4. Ah well, at least my friends don't tease me anymore, out of pity.
