Hoping for a draw today. Bromley got beat last two games just like us but on Tuesday they got hammmered 4-2 at home so will have had a good rollocking and extra training etc so the y wont dare play badly today. We on the other hand seem to think losing to Wrexham was a good result so might be over-confident. Hoping for a 0-0 cos of course we don't score goals.

Believe this will be a difficult game, would be happy with a draw.
There's a long way to go yet in this season, so whatever the result there will be no need to panic or start to make knee-jerk changes.

What a humiliation. At least we will be spared the back slapping and celebration we had in the aftermath of the Wrexham defeat.

Not sure what happened in this match, but obviously changes at half time and midway through second half failed to galvanize the team.
With the exit of Lang along with the loaning out of Cassidy and Hawkins we should now see how committed Raj is and how good Bates / Hignett are at recruitment. Be assured if we wish to have a top half finish recruitment is essential!

Biggest defeat of the season, three game losing streak (after losing only two in sixteen) we seem to be losing our discipline (second sending off in 5 days) something is not right.

Defence is an absolute shambles formation & personnel wise and we’re failing to get the best out of our forwards and midfield.

We’re not yet in a tailspin but one of our engines is struggling, about the time a good captain, manager in our case, steps up and turns it around.

I won’t hold my breath.

In the last 3 games we appear to have moved away from the rigid 3 5 2 formation utilized previously, wonder if that's just a coincidence?

Bromley got turned over at their place by second bottom of the league Braintree on Tuesday, conceding 4 in the process. We lost 1-0, with ten men to top three side (now top) Wrexham on the same night.

Granted Wrexham are a good side in this league, but Bromley who were 8pts behind us before this game, are definitely not pulling up any trees. Maybe like we have done for so many others, we’ve kick started a resurgence. Who should have been more confident going into the game?

We’re helping others more than ourselves.
We’re a 45 minute side: Jekyll and Hyde in every 90 we play.

We’re not scoring goals so why is Cassidy out on loan? Yes I know Cassidy isn’t scoring for his loan club but James was scoring for his previous club. Cassidy had more to his game and James has more to his game, we’re seeing neither.

Could we be missing an opportunity? We brought Boyd back from loan and what a revelation that was. Why is the manager not willing to bring him back for a month. If it doesn’t work out....no biggie, he goes back out. If it pays off we all win, but to not even dare to venture suggests we have a man in place who puts his own interests over that of the club, the greater good and all that.

Wrexham don't score many, basing their success on a watertight defence. It was no surprise to lose 1-0 to them. They could go up on the back of a lot of 1-0s. Bromley are inconstant and score a lot but concede a lot. I still think they are more likely to finish above us than below.

It is plain to see our issue is a lack of goals, if we scored more it would take the pressure off the defence.
But where Pools are likely to get a physically dominant, pacy goalscoring forward from is to say the least a conundrum !
