Views After Kiddy Defeat

'Another bad day at the office. Not impressed that we've conceded 4 goals today and it's capped off a truly awful month in the league.'

'That sends out a clear message to Worcester - attack us, we are capable of conceding a lot of goals.

They'll have some spies there today and will be going home with some very positive news.

Might be a tough one next week too.'

'Very disappointing I cant see it changing, fans are starting to get frustrated and rightly so.'

'Well what happened has happened. We now need to have a think as we are in danger of free fall unless something changes. It isn't so much this game as to be honest Kiddy are better than us. However two wins in 10 says it all.'

'Complete shocker. Ah well 2,000+ was nice while it lasted. At least I won't have to queue for my half time pint in November. Isn't it a bit early for us to be planning our traditional plummet down the league?'

'We have now lost to the top three teams in the division which shouldn't be the sign of panic stations. We are a middle table side and have been for a while but there are a few teams further down worse than we are.

A few games ago we were a few minutes away from beating Nuneaton who were second at the time. Our problems seem to come from having very few attacking options who are fully fit.'

'A 3-0 down it sounded like we woke up and started to attack, far to late in the day. I think we still have players playing who aren't up to the standard, and formation wise we are playing certain players as they are Simmo's players and players not in their strongest positions. I mean Todd Jordan left wing this is totally barmy.'

'All in all really poor yesterday. Lucky we did not concede 6 or 7 to be honest. Pleased to see Wright get a goal. Fofana made a big difference when he came on - hint, hint. We cannot keep playing defensively in the hope that somehow we will get a point or miraculously even 3. Long drive there and even longer drive back yesterday. Mr Simpson has got to take a long hard look at what he is doing with this side at the moment because, as far as I am concerned, he is shackling it rather than enhancing it. Please let him see what the problem is before we are consigned to another relegation battle because that is where we are headed. I am not basing that on yesterday's game, although it strengthened my belief, but on the form we have shown over the last 10 games. Back there next week for a morale lifting FA Cup tie I hope.'

'Foster didn't start early on and we've gone off a cliff since he's been forced to play out if position. I also am totally staggered by the Fofana situation and it's now very clear to me that Simmo has his favourites and if you aren't one of them it's tough. As normal with The Imps I've reached the point of just not caring anymore. Not happy about it but the buzz has totally gone.'
