Utterly embarrassing for everyone concerned.

Having witnessed the horror show at Edgeley Park, I expected us to lose 3-1 tonight, and anyone who thought wed compete with a quality Stockport side brimful of confidence, needs a dose of realism.
That said, Im baffled by the decision to play with 5 at the back; Im guessing Hulme was rested and that, in part, ingjtmrf his fecision..
There were positives, I felt; both new signings look decent, particularly Morgan, and I thought White played well
Think Grimsby might be another difficult encounter.

A really depressing watch, the killer was the second goal just before HT as that finished the game off as a contest. Credit to our lads at 0-4 for keeping going & having the right attitude up until the end at least. Mainly just glad we wont have to play Stockport again this season as it seems Parky runs up the white flag whenever they hone into view. Stockport are clearly an excellent side but so they should be with the millions that has been lavished on them over the last couple of years. Kings Lynn next Tuesday looks increasingly important you have to say.

Whilst I agree with your general sentiment, we didn't play 5 at the back

I don't think we had anyone at the back did we?

I'd like to see us pick our best eleven in future and play the way we, and the players, know rather than change to suit the opposition.
If we get beaten by the better team I can live with that.
Playing 4-2-3-1, we'll certainly have enough to finish 16th.

I wasn't going to post. but maybe a little to clear my frustration.

Found last night frustrating, as others say Stockport were very good, we played marginally better than boxing day, but surely we could have done better with players in there best positions and best players on the pitch?

Shame Jordan didn't make an appearance but with lacking match fitness it was hardly surprising if not frustrating for a spectator. The use of Toby in a marking role, really didn't suit him and Kennedy whilst he has good potential as a CH is struggling to find his feet. Surely would have been better to have Toby at CH. Personally would have started Pringle or Furman in midfield.

Shame we didn't take the early opportunity to score, we should have done. Maybe a different game after that. We still make to many errors and gift goals as last night. Such a shame as it undoes the hard work.

I was pleased we kept battling to the end, was good to have a CF on the pitch whom wanted to prove a point I believe when he came on. Let's hope we play future matches with a CF on the pitch from the beginning.

Digne is a decent enough defender but poor with the ball. Same as Sutton

Just too erratic for me.
Hannigan is a ball winner so you need someone calmer, ball player alongside him.
Toby has all the potential but like most he seems low on confidence.

The view from the County perspective (some splendid photographs capturing that eerie mist):

I'd rather have Richie Sutton in the team any day of the week, quite frankly.

Stockports version of the highlights are on youtube.

I'd love to know what Dens said to Jake after the fourth went in.
