Probably one of the worst perfromances I have ever seen from a Rovers team at home. The only positive I can take is that I am glad it was Bath who did this to us. They raised their game and deserved the win. We jumped tackles, missplaced passes, didn't comunicate, were second to every ball, were second to every second ball, didn't shoot, didn't create anything, lost possesion, were pushed off the ball. The list could go on. It was embarrassing. DC, the staff and the players should be throughly ashamed of that performance.
We are currently in a decent position in the division. Things do need improvement but lets not be bloody defeatist just yet
Defeatist a bit - a month ago we desperately needed to improve up front - we lost the ok Cunnington and the disappointing White, quite rightly I thought. However the replacements are no better at all. Blissett might have some potential is big and quick but quite frankly he looked useless yesterday - Wall and Goldberg looked even worse quite out of their depth. So we go into a busy Xmas period with a worse squad and some worries now that LDV has gone with no replacement and a young inexperienced keeper who looked "dodgy" yesterday. I hope we can hold our position over Xmas and strengthen big time in the January sales.
It's omlt one defeat and thankfully in the Cup so no League damage done but we were awful and it does worry me we could slip out of the play offs if things don't improve.
Pissed off is understandable, but the comments about DC are a joke, today has nothing to do with the number one aim which is promotion, unless i'm missing something and winning the FA Trophy gives a promotion place back to the football league. Wouldn't it be nice if as much energy used venting about our defeats this season were put into enjoying our victories, both forums and twitter are like a graveyard after we win. Time to focus on the league and on getting important transfer business done in January, plenty of incomings and outgoings on the cards next month, plenty of games left to cement a place in the play offs.
The concern is that today's performance was typical of recent away games but we had flapper in goal today rather than Mildenhall.
Gateshead now becomes a crunch game as another performance like today's, particularly if Blisset can't shake off his injury by Friday, will really set alarm bells ringing as we just seem incapable of creating goalscoring chances w/o LDV.

it's completely irrelevant at this stage whether we're 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th, the pack behind Barnet is so tightly bunched that we will all be constantly trading positions for the foreseable future. We've got half way through the season in the playoffs being rubbish up front, no reason whatsoever why we can't do that in the second half too, especially as most of our competitors are equally as mediocre.
