      I’ve worked out what a big part of the problem is with Shaun Maloney.

      He is far too analytical about the opposition. I’ve listened to his interviews and he goes on with comments like “we’ve looked at what they might do”, and after today’s match he said that Cambridge’s playing style “..was similar to Stevenage and Cheltenham”. But if he’s saying that he is holding his hand up to the fact they Stevenage beat us, Cambridge beat us today and Cheltenham was a bore draw. So his analytical approach…its not working. He needs to stop worrying so much about the opposition and concentrate on getting our game in order and our players playing with more confidence, more of a flow.

      This is where he is reigning our players in. They look nervous, because they ARE nervous! Playing a fixed style their manager is forcing them to play, instead of just letting them go out and play naturally. Matt Smith, for one, has played far too deep. It’s not his natural game that. The constant sideways and backwards passing, it’s far too cautious.
      And his selections continue to baffle. Charlie Goode was solid on Saturday, yet left out today. He’s a tinkerer, but a lot of the time for tinkerings sake
      In all honesty, I don’t think Maloney is a manager. Maybe an assistant coach at best.

      And why on earth he keeps playing Magennis, I’ve no idea. What a waste of a player in the line up. In fact with regard to the line up and selections, neither Magennis or Kelman should start now going forward. If he is fit, Stones would be straight in. And I’d select Brennan over Godo as well, as Godo won’t be here next season so I’d get them some game time.

      Maloney isn’t the answer going forward though. We need an experienced head to come in over the summer. The football we’ve played is as bad, maybe even worse, than what we had with Joyce and Mackay. Is it as bad as under Kolo the Klown? I think so.

      Unless they make a change and things start to look positive, Season Ticket sales will be well down. There’s nothing to attract people at the moment, after one of the worst footballing seasons I can recall. I’m glad there’s only 2 home games left.

      Can’t wait for the season to end.

        I agree, I don’t think the players have bought in because they don’t know what their buying.
        There was a remark that players are playing for their contracts. Some are loanees on wages we can’t afford and we’ve 4-5 players who’s contracts are up who’ll have to take a massive pay cut I’d say 50%+ if they want to remain at the club.
        I’m not sure if I’d be playing pulling my plumbs out to be rewarded with heavily reduced wages.

        Me personally, I don’t think he’s ruthless or brave enough to be a manager. There’s tough decisions to be made when you’ve so many players and only 11 can start so his answer is very similar to a kids u11’s manager,
        They must all get a game keep to them happy or they’ll leave.

        This is why we rotate so much and 5 subs per game trying to please everyone and keep the players happy’ish.

        The tactic of sit deep and pass it round till they come and get it has failed bigtime for Maloney. Teams just sit deep and say No thanks, keep it were over here

        Well we’re mostly of the same agreement, he’s got his personal beliefs on how the game should be played but what he’s massively failed to notice is

        Were in League One not the Prem
