We fielded a severely weakened side in a cup competition that we're never going to win.

The ship that set sail for North End today definitely wasn't our titanic.
No team we field weakened or not should be getting dicked by Wycombe with little to no reply.
Don't care that we lost. It's the complete lack of pride or desire shown by that 11 that is winding me right up.

Horgan is dog shit hence why he play's for the league's bottom club and couldn't even get a start in the cup, to be fair.

But he played well once or twice against us and that's always worked out hasn't it, serious Kyle Reid vibes here.
 
Shows how weak we are when our back up players play , demonstrates why they are not played in league when others are available , also worryingly the back 4 without Davies and Bauer looks very weak, looked very much like Preston players were strangers who hadn’t played together before , Wycombe seemed to find their own players with ease. We are a team very much in transition, the next few weeks could be very difficult dependent on the turnover of players and how quickly new players settle in to the system of how Neil wants to play
I agree. Most worrying. And AN doesn't seem to have any clue what to do when things go wrong (as they usually do). I genuinely fear a relegation battle looms with the squad well have left when Johnson, Davies and Pearson leave as they surely will.

Call me a bed wetter, but that was completely shite.
I don't care if that was a mixed team. If we have a single player not able to match Wycombe fuckin Wanderers then they need to be gone. I would include Rafferty, Earl, Stockley, Potts, Ripley, Storey, Hughes, Browne and Fisher on todays evidence; all robbing a wage above their capability.
And the tactics!! It's like we went top at Charlton, had a nose bleed and never recovered. Brentford and Bournemouth games are the exception of course.

It's what I expect. If they don't shell out championship money for replacements, we will go from a mid table club to relegation fodder.

Completely correct point, today has shown that some players are not good enough and should be moved on and replaced.

Don't think the formation did us any favours. Bayliss isn't a winger and Molumby isn't a winger, just full of running.

We need to sign Fisher up. The support he gave and the balls into the box were so much better than Rafferty.

Stockley needs to go. Rafferty needs to go.
 
The problem with PNE is that the players play when they want!
AN cannot motivate and this proves game after game.
Today was another embarrassing performance and against a team who do not have much cash for top rated players, what you got from them was effort, endeavour and a desire to try and win!
This is something that North End players don’t have, we must get a manager who can motivate and get the best out of this group of players.
They have shown many times that they are good enough, but too many times they just get rolled over, sort it out Ridsdale, what is the point of signing players when they only perform when they want, AN just ruins players!
