All change at Crewe....

Sack the c*nt.
For losing 3-2 to a team from the division above us when all their goals came from individual errors? Probably not.
Fully aware he's going nowhere. Possibly got the safest job in world football.

As consistent a message from CH as "Stop the c(o)unt"! 😁

Find myself hoping Crellin gets injured. Couple of months out and we can bring in emergency keeper loan. Either that or the team coach runs the prick over.
No.
I'm.sure Dibs doesn't mean the lad harm. You do wonder if a months enforced break might be what his career needs right now though.
I mean, just lie and say he's injured if you must, but get him.out of the firing line.

I’d do that exactly. Say he’s injured for 2 months and get a loan in.

And if they play him till January (probably losing most weeks) he’ll get sacked anyway.

Next question is, what will a high profile mistake live on sky against local upstart rivals do to him psychologically?
It simply must not be allowed to happen, but if it does there should be immediate sackings. I have nothing but sympathy for Crellin now, only anger at those who created this situation. Especially that coward Phoenix 'hiding in his office', to quote Our Keef.

I mean I’m not sure we deserved a win today but against a team who hasn’t scored for 5 hours we could quite easily have picked up an undeserved win, had our keeper not handed them two goals! Sometimes all you need is a scabby win for the tide to turn, but if your keeper is as bad as ours you have no chance !

I think we actually have most of the personnel to form a decent League 2 side, but the weak links are really, really weak.

I've had my say on Crellin, but honestly, I can't see that Alexander could possibly be any worse at this point. Phoenix/Evatt have cocked up the goalkeeping situation horrifically and now need to rectify it as fast as possible.

There's not much else to post that hasn't already been posted previous match threads. We're a Toyota patched up with parts from a third hand Austin Allegro - our body should be reliable but our weak points are so significant we keep breaking down.

I'd drop Crellin for Gilks, for his benefit and ours, and I'd start Tutte ahead of White. I don't know what we do about left wing-back with Brockbank out injured, but could we play Hickman there?

The Crellin situation is now extremely problematic. Tuesday night's Sherpa Van game is the perfect chance to "rest" him but Evatt needs to decide whether to blood Alexander or turn to Gilks.

Gordon makes me despair, while the fact Evatt rates him above Mascoll makes me worry. (I suspect Mascoll may be the better player – he can't be worse – but less reliable in attitude.)

I think we have to assume Alexander would be worse. He’s 2/3 years younger and not as experienced. I’d rather OUR young goalkeeper wasn’t thrown to the lions. I couldn’t give a toss about Fleetwoods.

Gilkes is one of two coaches Evatt has, and he hasn’t played a game for over a year. Plus he coaches Crellin. I think either he has to pay on Friday or they are effectively signing the obituary on Crellins football career -we are on Sky and there will be memes galore. Plus Evatt is running out of hiding places now for this form, we are relegation candidates as it stands. The defence and keeper are shocking and to me it all stems from the keeper. If you don’t sort that you need to score 3 or 4 to win the game.

I can’t even be arsed getting into non-league footballs Liam Gordon. Mascoll must be abysmal.

Crellin has to be the worst keeper ever to play professional football.

Jesus, 2 wins out of 15 under Evatt. He has to be under some pressure?

Ordinarily, in a run like that, you'd be able to point to games where we were unlucky to have lost. I can't think of one. I can only think of games we were bloody lucky not to have lost.

Evatt on Crellin:

“What I said before to Billy after the Cambridge game, we got a response out of him. Sometimes with young players, they are going to be inconsistent. They are not the finished article. Billy is a fantastic kid with a great attitude. He is going to be a top keeper but right now we’re being punished for everything. He will keep working. He has our blessing and our backing. We will keep working with him, with others, to get them up to the standards that some of them are setting for themselves.”

I think that's a diplomatic way of saying he's going to drop him, isn't it?

The commentator called it when Crellin had smashed the ball out of play for the 3rd or 4th time, "Evatt hasn't even shouted at him again, he's just looking at the ground"

I think the Camel's back has been broken. He's not even a poor man's Remi Matthews. Thing is, he'll probably leave this club and become a success somewhere else.

As a side note anyone else think we could get Hickman in by pushing Kioso in the middle and having Fonz on the left replacing Gordon?

Or am I being mental?
