Love a giant killing, fair play to Newport. Good to see there's a bit of romance left in the cup.
However, seeing that my team are on the receiving end of said upset, I can't but feel somewhat aggrieved and deflated by this result.
No graft, no craft and a general lack of professionalism from the "team" that went out today. Wrong approach and wrong attitude from the get go in my opinion.
I accept that we need to utilise the squad and realistically the team that went out today should've been more than capable of dealing with a league two side. Unfortunately it seemed as if most of these boys barely knew each other and yes we had chances but that doesn't make up for the lack of aptitude on display during the match.
I'll make it clear that I'm not a fan of Nacho; I don't see what he offers and really find it hard to believe that he keeps getting chances; one or two others need to have their place in the side reconsidered but he is a major concern considering how much we paid and how much he just got paid for essentially being a passenger once again.
Congratulations Newport and Mike Flynn, you earned that. Claude, can we at least consider looking into the possibility of playing with two up front?
