Exactly what happened - he was definitely diving already but left enough behind to allow some kind of contact to be made, and it was.

Sacko going on for Alioski, knew we were done today. Shame, this was quite some distance from being our worst performance of late.

A defeat but much better from us especially in the second half, we got the ball forward much quicker and we pressed without the ball, we should have had a point but for O'kanes fucking stupid challenge.

We never really troubled them at the back, there was a lot of disjointed play from us in the final 3rd. Pablo tried his best. Sacko was never the answer to Alioski, who himself was really poor today.

On the whole can't see too much point stressing about that. PH needs at least three games before we'll have the slightest idea what's happening.

Noel & Co laying into Alioski, I thought he was committed and chased everything. Still too many dinks and flicks that don’t work, but Sacko as alternative offered far less (again). PML good game. Hernandez’ entry made the team come to life, however still liable to getting dispossessed at key moments. Forshaw, Pennington, Pontus, Dallas all solid, Roofe, Phillips and EOK not. Wiedwald shaping up steadily, good to see Ekuban return.

Next couple of games should see playoffs talk to bed. There is a decent core in this side. We played more direct, which went ok for a first attempt.

We've gone from top to tenth, teams below us have a game in hand. This new manager has a huge task ahead. Much more than a change of formation, etc, needed to sort us out.

We've been on the slide long before our suspensions. The owner and everyone at the club now realise that this season is dead.

Miracle needed to get us right for next season.

Would much rather see Forshaw in the deeper role O'Kane played. I don't think he's as shit as some people but was at fault for both goals today (along with Roofe on the first).

I do think O'Kane's shit, as it goes. He obviously talks a decent game behind the scenes, seems a bit more intelligent than the average footballer, obviously came across well to The Heckster in the week... who fell for it and made him captain. I agree with Eric, there's not much point in having a go when it's the new fellah's first match, but the fact that he's taken a three-day look at it and picked O'Kane as his first captain [albeit Cooper isn't available anyway], worried me prior to kick-off. Imo, O'Kane simply isn't up to it and shouldn't be playing for us any more. I guess we had to rest Vieira and so he got another chance due to lack of personnel, but captain? Fuck off, Heck. Forshaw is surely better suited.
So, O'Kane's last contribution was a stupid red card. His two main contributions today were a shit header for their first goal and a penalty for for their second. He's a cunt.

Aye. Most EOK howlers come from tackling / passing in defence. He’s very capable at niggling halfway onwards, and serves a useful, hard working link role on attack. Tippy Tappy in our third, prefer Forshaw every time.

Our best eleven are a long way from a top six side. Some good individuals but not a shread of consistency.

A loan player has sort of saved our season from real shiteness.

Disagree, the best eleven have never been on the pitch together and the team (whoever was picked) have been handicapped by the management teams lack of tactical awareness, pragmatism and ability.

Today, we’ve gone to a ‘play off rival’ had more possession, more attempts, more passes etc. and were unlucky to lose. On a different day with a different ref. we’d have got at least a draw.

This manager is a big step up from before on today’s evidence. Just need to sort the team selection out.

Yeah, shouldn’t be in the squad never mind the team. With our MF today we effectively played with 9 men.

Giving the captaincy to somebody who got himself needlessly sent off in his last game was a poor start. Leaving Pablo out also wasn't inspiring.

As for o kane he just has very little intelligence on the field.
