It wasn't pretty. Slow, monotonous, boring. A continuation from last week. Not good enough. One pass to foot in the box to Grigg. Nothing in midfield but sideways and backwards movement and slow build ups. Again a job done by Pool and an easy job at that. We never stretched them at all. Got to give Caldwell a bit more time though. A month ago things were going quite well but at the moment clubs have us sussed unless he changes something.

How much time does he need? He keeps saying that they need to gel as team still as they haven't been together long. I certainley didn't see too many signs today of the side gelling together.
We were out fought by a team who only had six players a week before the season started and they looked liked they've managed to gel together alright.

Its time for a total clear out of everyone involved with the footballing side of Wigan Athletic who worked with and under Martinez and start again as it is just a continuation of the borring, negative, sideways and backwards, predictable crap we suffered under him for four years but with worse players.

Things need to change pretty quick or the only thing to look forward to this season will be the impending administration of our six fingered friends from over the border.

How much time does he need? At least as long to match the unbeaten run plus some more I would suggest.

That is probably going to be the only thing to look forward to this season after what we have witnessed again this week.
Martinez is a memory and that's all whether it was a happy one for some or a yawn a minute for others and yes Gary must be his own man and stop trying to copy what has gone before. Whether it's the Rosler like swapping around or the Martinez passing from the back or how it was again today backwards passing.

Even during the unbeaten run we looked far from impressive apart from against Colchester (but hasn't everyone got at least three against them) and Blackpool in the JPT (with the 2nd string playing).

The last five matches against Swindon, Shrewsbury, Burton, Barnsley and Blackpool have been atrocious and there can't be anyone, not even Standish who can argue with that.

Don't be gutted Grumpy, you missed nothing, it was absolutely dire from start to finish.
One decent effort on goal all game, from the only decent cross to Grigg all match, and their keeper tipped over Griggs excellent effort.
Jacobs had a half chance late on that the keeper kept out easily.
Other than that it was another case of keepy ball, tip tap crap, backward and sideways mistake ridden bilge with the odd run up the wing by the overated one trick pony of a winger from Boro.

Like the bit about Wildshit. Was expecting more of him today. Hardly gave the strikers any service at all. Nothing at all coming from the wings. Right side is shite. Left side is just questionable. What are James and Wildshit meant to be doing. Could it be better with James deeper and the one trick pony used as an out and out winger?

Didn’t go today but caught bits on Wish, sounded a frustrating game.
GC keeps saying teams change their tac tics when they play us, well it’s about time he started to change his, and discover a plan ‘B’. To keep rolling it out from the back and passing it around the back isn’t working.
We’ve now lost to two teams in the bottom four “at home”, if that isn’t telling GC something then i don’t know what will!

Yanic can't do everything he must be sick to death of waiting for the ball to get passed forward as I have said before our centre midfielders are rubbish and play way too deep yes that includes Dorothy perkins he is rubbish. And for Caldwell the way Sharpe left early with a face like thunder anymore games like that he'll be gone

Yanics job should be to bring the ball from midfield and deliver it to the strikers with James playing the ball out of defence to him but the left side is about as inefficient as the right at the moment. Central midfield is even worse. All the side are shackled by the managers in distance of passing out from the back and crab like movements up the field. Negative shit that is easilly countered by sides who do twice the work as we do.

No. Sharpey was going to Asda to get his tea in and had read on his Facebook feed about the floods at Asda.

He used to have his own chip shop, now he has to go to Asda for his tea. Sums up the slump the club's in :S

Tip, tap, pass back, doesnt work on a waterlogged pitch....hoooooofffff it up field might not be technically pleasant, but is more likely to produce a goal in those conditions.

The pace at which we move the ball around is so unbelievably slow that we must be a dream to play against. By the time it gets to the wings they have two men on us rather than us overlapping as the intensity is so lacking. Defensively we seem ok to me. Apart from Yanic I'm not convinced of any of the midfield and forward line. Given we have beaten only Peterborough in the top 12 in the division all season and in the last 8 days have lost to two of the bottom 3 clubs it's surely time for a rethink.

Signs have been on the wall since Coventry away and all the way through the unbeaten run. May get a chance to play a tip tap game in April/ May when pitches get better but untill then in the lower leagues it is roll your sleeves up and graft like to name a few Burton, Port Vale Swindon Bury Barnsley Blackpool Shrewsbury Doncaster and most others who accept they are lower league clubs.

The frustrating things for me, which nobody has mentioned is we didn't have any shots across a saturated surface. Their keeper had his easiest ever match, when it should have been his busiest. I think they're all thick. When a player takes a free kick 5 yards from the edge of the box and tries to curl one in the top corner rather than blast it across the ground, that's the only conclusion I can come up with.
Why do we, at home, bring every player back on a corner when we're drawing or winning but leave one up top when we're losing? The difference is plain and means they have 2 extra players in our box, increasing their odds of scoring.

Barnett is a danger, Perkins is footballing gnome apart from that I had no problems with his team selection, pre-match. It's tactics and tempo which is our problem. I'd be looking for an experienced playmaker in January, someone like Nolan.

Doesn't matter who comes in or goes if we do noup the tempo and play positive we will not go up or even finish in the play offs.
Starting line up seemed OK or not bad yesterday but if the midfield (whoever they are meant to be?) do not service forwards in this league there is no chance.

To be fair he was useless yesterday, he hardly got a tackle in and his passing was woeful. He was just running around a lot but not actually doing anything.

He reminds me of a poor Darren Sheridan.

Oh dear! Looks like the old darkside vs lightside is re-emerging again. & why is it when we win a few games - all is fine, yet lose a couple &/or play badly in those said games & the usual pessimistic &perhaps our more moronic posters post their typical drivel.
Yes, yesterdays game was SOOOOOOO frustrating, but is it really necessary to start calling for caldwell's head - who might i stress is a very young manager & is still learning his trade. Sometimes he might get it right & on other occassions ie yesterday, he will get it wrong. I for one am pleased with him & i do feel we will head in the right direction under his leadership.
Where he gets it wrong IMO is playing both perkins & power together - 2 very defensive minded midfielders who are too similar & will play backwards, sideways etc. He needs to play one of those with either jacobs or junior & play a system that gets the ball to grigg &/or other striker(s), because withoit decent service grigg just looks like a lazy sod. Change those & we will be fine.
But please, way too soon to start calling for his head or for taxis. Give the guy a chance.
