Time to ruthlessly sack some players. If they don't want to play they can go elsewhere. I wont bat an eyelid when they walk out the door. This complacency and lack of effort needs to stop NOW.

And Plymouth Argyle win 4 - 0 away at Fleetwood to climb above County in the table. Oh! the shame of it. I won't be able to hold my head up down the pub tomorrow. I'll be taking stick all night now.

Jackson, Pipe, Naylor must come back. Worley, Anthony, Porter must go. But what we do about a useless attack I don't know. None of our strikers are any good. Forget the play-offs. Time to decide who to ship out (half the squad at least) and who we can bring in for next season.

Yet again we could have been there and still not scored a proper goal (Own goal!)
Very worrying, we looked like a team in a relegation battle !

No worries about anyone coming for Justin soon.
He has managed to find 5 strikers who between them couldn't score if the game went on for a week. Why is Jackson not playing total madness.
Justin was great in the conference but is he getting found out in division 2?
More excuses tomorrow lets blame the pitch again!!

I drive from Bristol to every home game. That is called COMMITMENT. What I saw tonight was yet another gross insult to my loyal support of over 50 years. No effort.
We have had excuses and more excuses "tired legs, the pitch and rotation"
Well tonight Wimbledon showed us how to play on our shabby pitch as we squandered every rare opportunity except one and even that was an own goal!. The score could have been 5-1 or more.
So the time has come for me to consider whether I am wasting my time on this bunch of no hopers. One win in 2 months is unacceptable. What is more it is costing me a fortune which I could be spending on something which I actually enjoy.
I will be there on Saturday but be warned County you are drinking in the last chance saloon for my support.
