:lol: less than five minutes in and Pete Matthews has already basically told Halliwell to stop reading out other scores. But he's still f#!$ banging on about other bloody games.

Bet DC is in internal dialogue of whether to chuck Pett in

Adshead taken off. Don’t know why he was even in the squad.
Au revoir?
Half time team talk could be interesting.

Must spend 50% of the game commentating on things utterly irrelevant to what he should be commentating on.

FA Cup is a distraction we can do without this season

A post that's not aging well.😀

Well Dan Adshead must have been looking good in training.
Got hooked off in his last match and who on here would have picked him ahead of Olayinka.....or anybody.
Suggest DC submits his team sheet to The Nest
for approval in future.

I disagree.
The league will be the distraction!!!
One step forward two steps back.

Gutted.

To think I used to say Adshead just needs a run of games.....

Get shot. All the dead wood

Strange selection and full backs the wrong side. Not convinced the Manager has got this right.

11th in Lg 2.....therefore assume we would be rated rather lower...so perhaps propping up Lg2....NL 2025/6?

Just when we thought there was a ray of light in our league performances we throw in a useless performance like this. At least Darrell will have learned a lot more about some of his players today.

We’ve scored. Only five one down now.
I hope I never see a chunk of these players wear the red and white ever again.

Anybody else notice Pete Matthews get extremely excited when the opposition score or go close, shouting and being rapid with his words, but when Cheltenham score or go close he often just talks slowly almost like it's a normal passage of play and you have a job to realise a goal has actually been scored?

Shocking. Adshead should be told not to bother coming in on Monday.

Feel for Keena. And for the travelling fans.

Still, it’s the Cup where these one off results can happen. Regroup and focus on winning 13 more matches.

Is donkey an anagram of Aiden Keena?

If not it should be.

What a shambles. I think we put in a better FA Cup performance against Man City!
It’s not as if Wimbledon are setting Lge 2 alight.

It's almost as if in that game vs. Man City Alfie encapsulated the drive, effort and fighting spirit needed in this league🤔
