BFT £&*@!! - Burton

If anyone knows just what the hell that pile of stinking fetid @#£& actually was please could you write it on a postcard and send it to Jaap c/o Reading FC as I’m sure he’d like to know just as much as the rest of us.

People paid £5 for that and it wasn’t worth 5p. Still at least they’ve now all been reminded why they’d given up going to watch the team in the first place.

Beat me to it by seconds :D

No movement, no tempo and everyone's passing was off
Stam is completely incapable of changing things around and substitution-wise is the anti-McDermott. Zero tactical nouse and unable to make a change and go for the jugular.

Prime example being having Bod stood waiting to come on, us fluking a goal, then not making the sub and going for it. We concede again and suddenly Bod is on. Are we only allowed 2 up front if we're losing or something?

Really difficult to criticise the boo-boys today

I don’t think there’s much to write up

We were shocking, simple as. First half was prob the worst performance I’ve seen from is under Stam

Second half plenty of effort, huffed and puffed but created little. The passing was woeful hence why we couldn’t get any momentum going

The two goals conceded were horrendous. Just absolutely gifted them. The second one bizarrely I don’t think a Burton player touched it for about 10 passes before it went on

Stam screwed up his subs. Way too late. Bod is offering far more than Yann and getting 10 mins a game

Ratings:
Joey, Kelly, Aluko, Yann : 3
Gunter, Mannone: 4
Bacuna, Edwards, Moore, McShane: 5
Barrow, Swift, Bod: 6

Most definately an opportunity missed to win back some of those missing fan numbers....a shame for the club.

Bodvarsson is not the panacea for all of our ailments right now, but Jaaps stubborness in not starting with him has surely cost us a few points by now. His cameo appearances have been (in the main) encouraging and he HAS actually scored occasionally....whatever your issue with him is, it’s time to give him the starting berth Mr Stam.

I'm not going to bother with a BFTG report - there's no point - every player was awful, all 3 goals were shit, that's about it.

Unfortunate for the club today, opportunity to get some fringe fans on board, but on that evidence I don't think they'll be back anytime soon.

Firstly a big shout out for the guy that pulled us up for voicing our displeasure on the way out, support the team at all costs he told us.

Well that was as bad as I have seen in any game at the mad stad since we have been there. I have always stood by Stam but today that was just so bad, cant think of a single player I would give more than 5. but special mention to Joey, Kelly and Kermit for a single point each.

Tbf I’m fuming with Stam after that performance and the subs or lack of them was utterly baffling

He just can’t seem to recognise how to influence a match when it’s not going our way with the subs this year

Some of the favoured treatment of some (ie McShane, Yann, Kelly) at the expense of others (Popa, Bod, Richards) is just wrong. Another little dig at the fans doesn’t help his cause

In saying that I still wouldn’t advocate sacking him. But now there is big pressure on us back to win 2 of the next 3

By the way, I thought Burton were half decent. You could see they had a great team spirit there

Burton were a shit team with very limited players who looked like they'd peak about mid-League One.

On the other hand, they were organised, well drilled and determined.

We, were abject, insipid, timid, directionless, disorganised and clueless.

I'm turning. The players were poor, but it was the set up that leads to that sort of pathetic serving. No movement, no plan, everything relying on centrebacks being Xavi and Iniesta, but with no bugger moving. Kelly was criminally misused, Swift was a terrible substitution.

Mannone 5
Gunter 5
Bacuna 4 (benefit of doubt that his early knock affected him)
Moore 6 MotM (Lol)
McShane 5
Edwards 5
Berg 4
Kelly 3
Barrow 4 (plus 2 for scoring)
Aluko 2
Kermorgant 3

Swift 5
Bodvarason 6

Stam 1

Somethjng has to change or he'll be gone within 6-8 weeks no problem. You can't put on a promotion like that and then serve up that bullshit against the smallest club in the division. They didn't even have to play even remotely well.

Our entire game plan is based around hoping that the opposition don't press our defenders, don't defend deep in numbers and don't make any effort to mark in midfield.

Not oxf*rd good enough.

Just about ‘finally selling out’

Aluko was utterly dismal today. He needs to be dropped. Unable to beat a man, cross or hold the ball

Disagree with that - this is a fairly stable line up. If professional players who earn several thousand pounds a week and who play regularly together cant string proper passes together, tackle the opposition, etc. then that's their fault, not Stams.

After staying with family in Stowmarket last week and going to the Ipswich game, I couldn't bring myself to go to thr game today even though I had a ticket. What a great decision that was.......

Stam needs to go, I like him but I don't believe that the players are capable of doing what he wants on a consistant basis.

Even a Tony Pullis team would be better than this........

The whole day out gave me bad AIDS. Nothing at all redeeming about the experience, and I've been to a vast majority of the previous 499. Fold it now
