Without going into the MacLarens issue again, everyone knows my position on the draconian and unbelievably harsh FA punishment, and my loyalty to the two players as a supporter.

It appears that we have lost the ability of the past few years to box clever, to niggle and annoy opponents while keeping cool and ultimately, winning. It seems to have gone from a team who would fight for each other to a team with a lot of pent up frustration, which has manifested itself at the wrong times this season.

This bloke today with the name like an optician's eye chart has clearly made a massive arse of it, and I doubt he will get a second chance.

Let's also remember that we were already losing, to a lower division side, when this fella got sent off, and we are now 5 defeats from the last 6, so it's clear to me that there are a lot more problems than just on the disciplinary side.

I really hope Barton Rovers are the Trophy opponents, two games against Sudbury in the past few years and two horrendous results for us.
