As I said at half time, very pretty football.

We have little punch upfront, although a better ref may have helped, Madine was constantly fouled throughout the game yet the ref ignored it, with a more even ref, we may have had another shot on goal, or is that being too optimistic. Time and again we squandered decent movement to pass sideways or even backwards instead of getting it into the danger area, i.e. their box. The Crewe goal was a typical sucker punch, much like last week against Ipswich, we failed to defend and mark players out of the game. I must admit, I'm at a loss to see where we are going to win our next game.

ARGGGGGGG.

The match statistics say all that needs to be said - but steady boys, steady. Tradition has it that we wait until ten games have been played before casting a judgement. Six gone and two home games to come. Keep the faith.

This is going to sound like sour grapes, but the referees we have seen this year so far have largely been shit. there was a direct pull on a blackpool player as he was going through no action, and then a turton challenge for a 50-50 gets him a booking. Madine was being pulled, kicked and jumped on all game but didnt get a free kick in his favour until the 80th odd minute. there were times he was pulling both teams up and then letting quite nasty challenges go. rant over

Please don't say it's the same Nigel I'm thinking off. Had a few battles with him on FB of it is. He was a proper Oyston bumboy. Last name begin with an M?
The very same, yes we are all frustrated at the start we’ve made but some folk just live to moan about anything and everything, really makes my p*** boil!

Work in progress for me, big improvement still needed in terms of creating chances and just lacking that leadership and tenacity. It will come good. 👍🏻

We aren't creative enough and we are dodgy at the back. We have just brought in 2 cb a def mid and an attacking creative midfielder. It just takes time. There is a team there, we just need to tweak the starting 11 and add our new players into it. It will come. Confidence will also be playing a part.

Said it before, Jerry Yates is the new Joe Nuttall. Big fanfare when signed but unfortunately not very good. I don’t understand the love in with Yates, this time last year Nuttall was getting pelters but it’s like Jerry is immune to criticism. No goals is not a record a striker wants

Thought it was. The guy was a proper Oystonite. Makes sense now why he comes out with nothing but negativity and wants the team to fail. What a sad individual. And to be in bed with the Oystons. One of which was a convicted rapist. Wow. Morally bankrupt.

I'm grateful to read it. Thanks CP. My iFollow was juddery for long stretches so I didn't get a true perspective on Madine's complaints to the ref.

Played some good possession football again today, defensively looked better but we’ve got some good ammo on the bench to come in. Again lacked in the final third but l think that will improve as the team improves. l thought Williams was our MoTM and as I’ve said many times before he gets and does the dirty stuff very well.

Yep. We just don’t look like we play winning football

He’s technically dreadful. Ball just continually bounces off him. Contributes nothing other than running like a headless chicken getting in the way of everything.

Only saw the 2nd half and thought we looked alright. Crewe’s goal came from nothing, with is always a concern, and after recent results I genuinely expected us to fold but in fairness the players got the ball down and played well and we scored a rather scruffy goal ourselves. Not the finish itself which was an excellent strike from Ward, just it was a bit of bounce around in the box before it.

We certainly looked the stronger team but equally Crewe didn’t really look like much.

Tougher tests ahead but you will always take a point away from home, especially after going behind, especially after being on a very poor run of results.

Just me you and a couple of others who have been saying from the start of the season get Williams in the team.

Some just don't get that it's not what they may bring themselves but what it enables others to do.

Got nothing against William's and if we are all honest, none of us have seen enough of him to make a balanced judgement. Pleased Ward got the goal but he still isnt doing for me. Just my opinion.

I won't argue with your Ward judgement but, under pressure in the box, he showed great presence of mind to go what was required.
