Would you have guessed it? - game tomorrow melt down or bonce back time of the season. Eat my hat time but thought Dyer was very good when he game on but at last we played two up - shame AM only does it when we go a goal or more down. Next two could go ether way - seriously predictions out window now until I see team selected. Going tomorrow out of loyalty more than hope.

3-0 Nuneaton. Hope I'm wrong, but can't see us winning this unless something changes big time after Saturday's performance.

Agree but hope AM has learned something from Sat and will play a proper back 4 and build from there.

Honestly not surprised at the scoreline as for some weeks you could tell this team and set up is not good enough to go up or evem make the play offs. Maybe missed one or two homes games over the past ten years but have to say have lost complete interest now. Used to be a group of ten mates round me each week which has now gone down to two.

Just back - complete and utter rubbish performance. All stems from a one pace (reverse) midfield - Clark-Fowler-Green and Durrell who seems to have lost interest long ago. 1st goal caused by no one covering for yet another surging Strong run upfield and space put to good use on the counter brake by them. Current midfield worst I have ever seen since 2003 - Durrell greeted by your not fit to wear the shirt when taken off - but to be fair Green today was worse and thats saying something. Clark gave the ball away so many times lost count!. Could tell when 1st goal went in we would have no idea how to get back in the game. Forget play-offs and current home attendances levels - we are going no where this season. Shame because not seen anybody really better than us to date - wasted afternoon in every sense.

Such sloppy goals to give away, didn't think we were that far adrift first half, Durrell failing to track back when being tackled by a man on the floor for the 2nd killed us, but the first was worse. Surely Green or Clarke should have noticed Strong bombing forward and filled in, couldn't believe Greeny in particular didn't cover. Both of them spent most the game giving the ball away or turning into trouble, and with Durrell playing simply awful we lacked any playmakers. Only ones worthy of any credit were Strong who was excellent again, Burns was steady and Taylor was good when coming on. Very disappointed in the CB's today as well, torn apart for the second game by Harewood, who ran them ragged. Second Half was pretty much spineless. Need some results and quick.

Waited half hour before posting but think Argus 7 has got it about right .would not be so bad if we were getting beat by really good sides.Bit embarrassing to be a Tammy at Nuneaton today.Unless our silent Board can obtain some substantial investment for players then they should come out and say that this is what we will have to put up with in the future.Took 4 sons and 2 grandsons down today but this performance wont get them down the Lamb

That was awful being honest. Durrell had a poor game without question, but to speak to some people today, you'd think he lost the game on his own. Greeny had a nightmare although he didn't hide and he deserves some credit for that. Clarke was probably our best midfielder as he at least fronted up and won the ball back several times. Fowler looked like he'd thoroughly enjoyed Christmas (or at least several slices of pudding - he seems unbelievably to have put on weight and lost mobility since signing), Mettam would've been completely anonymous were it not for his ongoing conversation with the linesman who had to keep waving his flag at him. Look across the bloody line man!

In addition, we defended poorly pretty much all game and by the end, I'm sure Preston was injured. I know we'd used our subs but I'd still have taken him off. Three down with 15mins to go and him limping, I'd not have risked that injury getting worse in a lost cause. Nuneaton didn't play as well as they did at The Lamb either. Today, bar a tip over late on, Belsh didn't really have a save to make. That isn't to say they didn't deserve to win. They undoubtedly did. I'm just saying they didn't have to be anything special. How a side can lose one in 19 and then suddenly look bereft of all confidence I don't know but we have and we risk the season petering out to nothing if we don't have a pretty spectacular January.

In addition, the bench doesn't inspire much confidence. Taylor - hard worker but not a lad likely to win you a game. Smith - dependable, solid but again unlikely to win you much, Hubbins, Davies - far too lightweight.

In fairness to Morrell, I'm not sure who, of those I'd have put in from the start with any expectation of winning the game.

Danny Newton will make a difference when he's back but the pressure on him will be enormous because our left back is the only lad to have scored for us in our last four games.

I think Lee Smith was hard done by... Should of started. Lee Fowler is useless and he was at fault for the first goal!

One up front whether its Newton, Mettam or Dyer doesnt work. Andy needs money for a striker and quick!!

Well what an absolute shower of s..t today was, I actually had to count how many players they had because far to many of ours went missing. Midfield was shocking, no pace, no creativity and no passion!

I've given Durrell some stick on here but for the third game in a row he gives the ball away and doesn't track back and they score....and it's the first time I've heard fans at TFC sing your not fit to wear the shirt as he was subbed I'd be embarrassed to collect my wages.

Not sure what's gone wrong but we need players in and quick....

Time to face the truth.
Durrell is not Con North player. He is a expensive risk. Sounds like it has gone tits up. Green the animal has had his balls off. Our tom cat is getting fat and you can't get off your lap. Looks like you cannot make Green a lap cat that's no good for Tamworth, and I said he could not be tamed. Great players in the right team.
Morrel I don't know, can he get out look down the lower leagues and find players what are going to perform. He's not going to do that by sitting on his Arse. Next season is going to be Tamworths most important season in memory, and having 2 players by July is not going to work. Solihull had there team by May.   
Big Bob ! Think about this Tamwoth a few seasons ago Tamwoth was playing and holding there own against Burton. There are other sides what have gone. Me I would sooner drop down few leagues pay less than stay in this nothing league. Big Bob and the Range Rover boys have got the choice ambition or Belper Rovers, because I'm not standing with you who had 10 mates now there's 2 left to make it 3.

We need Raccchi back!!, why he went I don't know, but IMO, we should have tried to keep him.

never usually write on forums but happy red what a pile, look at durrells record in this league,he should be playing higher, also look at our write up sounds like the only good things to happen came through him.he  is the only creative player we have and if the rest of the team played what the game says FOOTBALL and played to feet instead of giving us all a stiff neck looking skyward all the time maybe we would score a few more goals

Never rated him, so wasn't disappointed when he went, but I thought Fowler would be a good replacement, wrong about that though.

Racchi is an interesting individual. Not sure to what extent it influenced his departure but there was a pretty stupid social media spat that went all over the Halifax forum via twitter I think where he was betting a lad £100 we'd dump them out of the trophy as long as he played in the game.

You'll find it through their old threads with a bit of digging. Pretty embarrassing.

He wasn't a bad player mind. Not a superstar but he'd be in our starting eleven currently I've no doubt.

Trying to work out if this is a dig at me or the directors, I will put you straight and tell you that after what I witnessed Saturday was nothing more than a very poor team going through the motions and will not be going down again. So don't worry you will not need to stand by anybody as the space will be empty.

Sorry you did not read what I said Durrel is a class player, why he has come down a level. Morrell a married man so can't be that. So like I have said before MONEY, that went around every dressing room in the national league.

Willie the Whale, agree Durrell is a class player when he's onit but his attitude and lack of tracking back has led to goals....there's NO I in team!


Posted By: Footy Dave
Date Posted: 30 Dec 2015 at 3:51pm

Didn't go to Nuneaton, but Durrell was garbage on Saturday & the way he took his time coming off the pitch when subbed did not endear him to the fans especially as we were 2-1 down!.

I heard he got dogs abuse on Monday as well. IMO he is a luxury player that we cannot afford to have on the pitch at the moment.

It the ditch or not moment with Durrell - heard he is becoming very disruptive in dressing room moaning its everybodies fault apart him that we are not playing well. So similar to Daniels last year when he got kicked out after poor attitude coming to a head in big time in a training session when he almost came to blows with Josh and others. Both players so similar in what they bring to team when they want to be or can be bothered. Flair and odd bits of brilliance all well and good but when it stops and they don't bring anything to the team that's when problems start. FInally he is playing at the right level with all his baggage and Mentality. Maybe being dropped and or released may be the best option for us and him if he can't deliver quickly. Assume Daniels has finally grown up under Weaver. Is Durrell capable of growing up is another matter.

Just back for a day, stop bloody moaning, give AM time to see through his vision for a team in progress, you all thought Durell was a good signing, to many draws yes , but in lealaty we are about right in a league of misfits ln terms of expectations, let's take Nuneaton , ,always ln financial trouble, but always above us, Boston the same, Stockport still command 3 times are attendance, U M F C well below us with untold resources, non league football is now a lottery due to those with money that want to push the boat further out.

Due to working in Cambridge, Mon to Fri for the last 4 months and probably till March I'm finding hard to get to any game , frustrated on all accounts.

Born to it , not forced into it, good look AM , from the old bugger.

Agree with comments about where we are in league and the so called 'bigger clubs', however we are approaching melt down time unless we can turn not only the results around but performances. We were unable to under AM following the massive winning run at the end of last season. AM's one up approach is not working and unless we get some new faces in we will certainly be slipping down the league. A play off place should not be beyond us and should be a realistic aim and expectation.

In fairness to AM, he tried to start the Nuneaton game with Dyer and Mettam up top but Dyer was injured early and came off.

We really do miss Danny Newton terribly. His pace, work rate and general "pain in the arse-ness" for defenders is something none of our other attackers possess. I'm not saying we'll suddenly win every game once he's back but I'd be reluctant if I was AM to be committing much of a tight budget to a player who may or may not work in that role if Danny is back soon (he warmed up Monday so I'm hopeful it can't be a million miles away).

That said, I'm not convinced the loans have really plugged gaps that needed plugging. I think a winger to provide service for Ross might have been a better signing than another sitting midfielder or a centre half.
