Seriously WASPY.

This is comfortably one of the worst United sides I've seen in my 33 years, and we've incredibly taken 6 points off you.

I'd be asking some serious questions of the manager after that absolute shit show.

Much love as always xx

That was absolute fucking bullshit.

Take off our best player at HT and our best defender yet leave Nugent on. Yeah, good fucking work Dino.

Edit: You do not have to play Byrom and Timlin alongside each other (for which read five yards away from each other) every sodding game. They just cancel each other out. Iontton was the only midfielder winning the ball back and not giving it away cheaply (Kennedy's touch and tracking back was a fucking disgrace today) and on at least two occasions both Byrom and Timlin just stood watching a teammate in double coverage and neither fucking moved an inch to offer support, yet Iontton who did gets hooked instead of them. And why does Nugent play? Utter waste of space.

I still fail to understand the hate for Nugent. He's there to defend and he does that very well. A few misplaced passes is no different to Wilko.

Probably took Cuthbert off over Nugent as Cuthbert was booked. Going with 1 CB it probably doesn't matter whether it's your best one or worst one. They're not going to be able to prevent a goal on their own, unless they bring someone down and take a yellow. Which Cuthbert couldn't afford to do after being booked.

Dino appears to have his favourites. Byrom Timlin Nugent Revell.

None of them actually do anything that fans want to see.
Like goals and skill. They're just work horses. Not saying I don't think they're important to the team just maybe don't play them all the time!

Where was the passion on the pitch.

Unfortunately it was a reflection of our manager who seemed absolutely lifeless for most of the game!

I keep having this image of Robbo (as on the club shop window)...that is passion. This lot are nowhere near it...unfortunately.

Its not though. Cambridge were up for the game and we were second to everything. Nothing wrong with 433 or 451 or whatever but if we just go through the motions of being a footballer then you'll probably lose. Its not passion - its just wanting to win and do well.

They conceded SIX last week.

Our first shot on target was after 63 minutes.

Cannot recall the last time the players were met with such lethargy from the away end at FT.

If promotion is the aim, Dino is 100% NOT the answer (I do not want him sacked, mind). And I am not intetested in bollocks excuses about the squad. We have better options than our league position suggests. Away games are an utter joke.

The minute we get knocked out of the HSC our season is over and an utter waste of time. Get Guthrie and Reid up top against Berkhamsted.

Like for those who thought we would set up with a positive attacking mindset, eager to take the game to a struggling side who find it hard to beat an egg and we would come away with an impressive 3-1 win

Dislike for those who thought we would be slow, timid and hardly able to string a pass together due to sufferering from the ongoing effects of a long coach journey to play a Cambridge team that we would make look like they were Barcelona

Looked better with 442 but at two goals down it's too late.

Need to double up down the wings (eg. Henry/Wildin and Seddon/Campbell-Ryce) and not play two players to do one job (i.e Byrom and Timlin)

3 centre midfielders is a fucking joke. Drop Arthur for Sonupe, a bit of pace. Yeah, Arthur won MOTM the other day but lets be honest, he was voted because he was the youngest player out of the selections. It was either Newton or Cuthbert by a country fucking mile.

Cambridge were here for the taking and weve lined up with 3 attacking players. Bravo.

I always look at the post match figures and our attempts on goal are nearly always a fraction of the oppositions. If you don't create chances you wont win games, unless it was against Newport last time out. A mate saw the highlights and wanted to know how we won 1-0

We try and out attrition the opposition and it occasionally works. The football is dire though and we will have no consistency playing the way we are at the moment. He really needs to stop playing Timlin and Byrom together. We can't have two similar players that slow in midfield. It's getting embarrasing.

I must admit the alarm bells started to ring when we got shot of our assistant manager earlier in the season. the football has only got worse since then. We have no hope of getting anywhere near the playoff's. Prove me wrong Boro.

Keeping the seven theme, Cambridge have won just seven. Two against us.

Edit: As I said elsewhere, in 25 games this season they have conceded 47 times. Very nearly two per game. Against us? Two clean sheets and six points. ARGH!
