Was it just one of those days or was it a day we were always destined to have, taking into consideration the kind of form we’ve been in and the lacklustre displays we’ve witnessed?
Whatever the answer it is fair to say that the 7-0 thrashing will remain long in our minds and the call for action to be taken, on social media, continues to grow.
After the game, and as we’d expect, Graeme Jones faced the media and, as reported by The BBC
had this to say:
“Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. We were fragile defensively and attacked with no intensity. We just collapsed and I have told the players that.
“I was so embarrassed with that performance. I feel sorry for our supporters. They travelled in numbers and I need to apologise for that performance.”
But does an apology cut the mustard?
Was what we saw indefensible?
Continuing, Jones added:
“We have to make sure this is never repeated again. They have to man up and get on with it; they have to take responsibility for their performance.”
An interesting choice of words, shouldn’t it be Jones that takes responsibility, after all, he selected the side and deployed the tactics?
As for the social media, it’s not hard to find posts that cover just how the supporters feel about the heavy defeat with the below being a fair illustration:
To late. Your job to do tactics, formation and break opponents down. Failed in massive way !!

Sort it out GJ,
what’s going on out there, Brabin I don’t trust, never have never will…..
Make a change before it’s too late. We all love the hatters, but this is now embarrassing.

As a supporter it is so embarrassing, I went to my first match in 75 can’t remember getting beat by 7 in all that time . We seem to be so easy to score against , i can not see a good end to this as i can’t see the defence improving and don’t know if GJ is up to it

However, it is our duty to cover both sides of the story, although we had t dig deep to find somebody willing to stick up for Jones:
He shouldn’t leave. He’s an incredibly accomplished but insecure coach who didn’t want to take a chance on a proven squad and system because of vanity.
There is still time to put this right, but he has to learn personal lessons quickly.

But perhaps our last social media comment addresses the situation perfectly:
That’s all he is. A coach. Not a manager
