Ben, Madine, Morais and......the ref nails us for a fre kick that causes much chat in the mic box. Anyway, Ben has a dropped ball and wallops. Throw us and Sammi.....and.....Robbo and....cross and...Beevers, Morais, Noone and....the keeper wins it. Sammi and....forces a save from their keeper. Too much action without a result. Sunderland score. Wheats, Morais, Noone and...they clear. Sordel goes and....he hits the side netting. They make a sub.

A maximum of 19, but will more probably be 16, points halfway through the season. There are people getting into a festive spirit all around me at present, I just feel like smacking them over the head with a fxckin' cracker. Proper pissed off.

Very disappointing. We were slow, ponderous and everyone was afraid to take the ball forward with the exception of Ameobi and Robinson. Shows the importance of Little to the side.

Surprised Cullen was preferred to Armstrong on the Bench. After going behind, we had no option available in attack to bring on. Darby offers us nothing, neither in defense or attack. Our Central defenders are too slow for the Championship. The opposition will always score one against us, so we need to score at least 2 each game. Vela was poor and offered no support to Madine nor Ameobi before he was dropped deeper when Pratley was subbed.

We needed 3 points today with the upcoming fixtures. We got nothing and the future does not look promising without good new players in January.

Most of this is spot on.

Robinson is absolute shite though. Every cross hits the first man, gives the ball away constantly and can't defend. I thought he might learn as he played but seemingly not.

Shows how thin the squad is. Few have off days and we have no way of changing the game from the bench. We desperately lack pace in the squad. Not having Armstrong on the bench was baffling.

It was worse than abysmal. After the first ten minutes when Ameobi looked to get in the game big style and Vela was bossing midfield...

After that terrible. The second half even worse than the first.

Parkinson wants to play the big man up front and the long ball to him. When you can't make it work at home against the bottom of the league it might just be time to rethink...

I'm not confident that it would be a miraculous cure but I remember enough of last season to whisper... Morais... ALF...

We were done by a team as interested in playing football as we are - yesterday wasn’t must not lose it was must not win. Gas Madine trying free kicks from 35 yards? No ALF (tonsillitis) fair enough but to not have Armstrong and / or Hall on the bench in case we went down and needed a plan B is absolutely criminal. Parky can get to feck for me on that one. I want to watch a team interested in winning games.

Only four pages of comments, three of which are TD’s valiant commentary, might suggest that we fans are as indifferent as the players and management.

I said this was a cast-iron must-win and I haven’t changed my mind. Burton had had scored 3 goals in 15 hours away and had 1 win in 13 anywhere. No point shitting on about how Completely Financially Imbalanced this division is then losing to Burton.

Fine margins on a sticky wicket but if Parky’s plan A doesn’t work he’s unable to change mid game. Yet again we didn’t score in the second half, but this time we didn’t score in the first half either, at home to a woeful team in a crunch match with all our forwards (bar Alf, who’s alienated anyway) available. That to me smacks of bad management, and although I’m not there yet, I’m beginning to think we might have to change to have a chance.

It's hard to get bothered to be honest as it's all so inevitable (much like the cricket) that you can predict it. I appreciate we've improved from the first weeks of the season, but we just don't seem to have enough when it matters. Looks to me that we need someone in central defence as well as someone that can play in midfield that gets about but also can convince defence not to bypass midfield. We should have enough in forward areas if we can find a way of using them that doesn't involve howitzers.

We are a decent centre half, centre midfield and centre forward short. Which is too much in this league.

I've just opened Day 17 in my Advent Calendar, and got anti-stress moisturising cream in it...I needed some of that yesterday!! I've always frowned upon other fans going early before matches ended, but I had to leave on 74 minutes for my own sanity it was so bad. The players had no energy, didn't want to really go over halfway line because they had no-one to pass to and ended up going back to Alnwick. Not one of those players had a clue and neither did Parky, and I am seriously thinking of giving my season ticket up, because they were every bit as bad as they were in the 1st part of the season, and I can't hack it anymore :(

I'm actually wondering if it's really worth bothering with relaying commentary any more. Used to be fun, but hardly anyone seems to be on line lately and it would be far easier to just sit back and listen with a cuppa.
