Hopefully this is just a blip in preseason preparations!
Feel sure Ronnie won't be surprised by the difference in class that Scunny have compared to previous opposition.

I don't think there will/should be a backlash. For me there has been plenty of positives and sure not the result we wanted but a few facts.

The back 3 had only played 45 mins together before tonight.
Two of them have missed a fair chunk of pre season especially on game time.
The back 6, if I can call them that, haven't played many minutes as a total unit
There is bound to be issues/faults as the go through a learning curve.

Sounds like we had a couple of chances but not loads.

Also Ronnie has stated he wants to work on moving the ball quicker and that most of pre season has been working on fitness and now they will start working on shape, plans set pieces etc etc so without that in place then there is going to be mistakes.

All in all probably good that this happened now keep the boys grounded and working hard... And I'm still super excited

I wasn't there tonight so can't comment. Getting gubbed 4-0 is never good, but then it's only pre-season.

I stand by what I said weeks ago though, if we're going to play 3-5-2 we need another centre midfielder - preferable a creative one. Bates, Featherstone and Walker has no spark.

We've got Woods but I don't think he's going to be fully ready for the start of the season and we'll end up over reliant on him if he's the only one we've got.

Anyone know what's happening with the trialist Fergus Bell seemed to be involved in a lot of action in his friendly appearances.

Also need to remember that there is the loan market. Don't want to rely on loans but if it is 1 or 2 for the season then I can live with that

Yes, much better that this 'reality check' happens in pre-season. It lets us know that there's a lot more work to do.

I remember thinking that Luke Williams was in a different class when he was on loan to us a couple of seasons back. Scunthorpe have a brilliant player there.

I think its good to have these type of games, now we need to hope that the manager and coaches realise who to get shot of, there are a couple, i know personally i wouldnt give them the time of day.

You have got to remember probably all the players brought in were free transfers, deemed not good enough by their previous managers. Let's hope Ronnie can turn them around !

Also Scunthore have an established team whereas we have a group of individuals yet to be turned into a team.

RM has 14 days to do so - the clock is ticking, these are his choice of players, his team now.

Scunny have signed nine new players this summer (and another since Tuesday's game). 10 players have left as well. Quite a lot of upheaval.

I can't imagine they'll struggle as much next season.

The Heed are an average conference side at best with no more than hopeful aspirations of reaching the play-offs. is anyone prepared to bull the up the Chesterfield squad prior to yet another pre-season meltdown? The performances this pre-season are actually worse than last year under Cooper - the honeymoon is almost over, RM needs to sort this hotch-pot of a squad out pdq otherwise we wil be playing catch up from the off come 8th August.
