Worst team

Amazing how some people refuse to give their own team credit. 
 

Excellent performance all round…. But must have been the oppositions fault.  

The biggest thing to come from today was the reaction of the players after their goals. 

 

Their first goal, right after half time could have knocked us for six. But in reality they'd done nothing up to that point and it was just a great goal we couldn't really do anything about (unless we're being really picky)

 

But we carried on and we continued to be completely dominant. This was a huge plus and it should be something Moore uses with the players as an example to give them the confidence and belief going forward.

 

A slight concern is the fact we've essentially hammered a team today but been a bit wasteful in front of goal and let in a sloppy goal. Today could have easily been 5 or 6-1.

Plymouth worst I've seen at Hillsborough this season. Offered very little. That scoreline flattered em. 

Agree. Especially first half. Like men vs boys. Bizarre really after whats happened earlier. 

Dodgy xmas party?

I’ll be picky. BPF positioning was not great for their free kick. He should have been more central. It was obvious from where the ball was where the player was aiming to put it.

 

4-2 really flattered Plymouth though.

They certainly looked a shadow of the team that bullied us to two 3-0 defeats. We were good and they were poor. Mind you, it’s a good job Windass got the goal when he did or it could have all ended in tears!

I thought so as well. I think their fans are fuming when Lowe left them, rightly so IMO. Was probably going to get them promoted and now will end up doing naf all at Preston.

Preston have won their first three games under him have they not? 

 

He's got them on a good run.

Think we rattled Plymouth with us taking the game too them.

 

 

 

 

 

You will rattle any team in this league if you take the game to them. That’s been our problem we’ve been too cautious.

MK Dons were the worst team at Hillsborough this season, by far.

 

Crewe worst we've played anywhere.

 

I agree with this

 

MK Dons were awful given their position. Even their fans agreed they were shocking that night

They were absolutely garbage. 
 

But there’s a pattern here. If you look at the table, the 7 teams above us we’ve played 5 at home (won 3, battered Wycombe and somehow drew, and lost 1).  The other 2 played away we’ve won too.  
 

And this is why I couldn’t go with the apologist line when we kept dropping points and playing in second gear against the lesser teams in the league that “oh but we’re  a team a of freebies and castoffs who aren’t any good”. When we’re on it, I don’t think there is a team in the league anywhere close to us from what I’ve seen so far. Problem is we don’t seem able to string that together, and that is the challenge now. 
 

When we play on the front foot, with attacking intent, and are up for it, we’re making these sides at the top end of the table look pretty ordinary, especially at home. But in L1 you have to be at that all the time.

Weren't there some people who wanted us to lose to get rid of Moore ? Sad I know...
