    I have nothing against people posting their opinions, that's what the thread is all about, but please, just because someone is of a differing opinion to you, is it right to condemn them.
    I don't think any of our team are 'rubbish', they are professional football players and I am not and as such I am not qualified to draw a comparison.
    It cannot be denied there is room for improvement, SH himself has stated as much, and we are certainly lacking in certain areas, again something SH has acknowledged.
    Lets hope this win, regardless of the opposition will help to increase confidence among the players, alas for some posters on here, the cup is always half empty.
    By definition, is it not the supporters job to 'support'?

    I've seen us play better and lose so am happy with winning ugly.
    I have nothing against people posting their opinions, that's what the thread is all about, but please, just because someone is of a differing opinion to you, is it right to condemn them.
    I don't think any of our team are 'rubbish', they are professional football players and I am not and as such I am not qualified to draw a comparison.
    It cannot be denied there is room for improvement, SH himself has stated as much, and we are certainly lacking in certain areas, again something SH has acknowledged.
    Lets hope this win, regardless of the opposition will help to increase confidence among the players, alas for some posters on here, the cup is always half empty.
    By definition, is it not the supporters job to 'support'?

    That was not even their first team tonight you will find.Crawley can turn over Ipswick on gates of just 3k and players on 3k.Wake up we pay prem-league money to watch lower league rubbish.March could also be off also.

    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLLS

    Tonights match.
    Workmanlike job done.
    positives .... defence was solid, Chicksen looked quite good going forward, Kaz made the difference when he came on.
    Dunk scoring which will upset a few.

    minuses .... Little inventiveness in midfield, still too slow and predictable moving from defence to attack.

    We need a top target man and a creative midfielder.

    Not a great win, granted, but a win nonetheless.

    Am wide awake, at what point did I give the impression I wasn't?
    I agree, it was a great result for Crawley, but as stated in an earlier post, we cannot judge a season by a cup win, I was merely referring to the fact that this win could serve to swell confidence among the players, and could as a result have a positive effect on our league performance. but that remains to be seen.
    I supported and watched the Albion when we were 'lower league rubbish' and this team, however poor on the night, are certainly better, but that's just my opinion!
