Chris Martin has been absolutely useless for near on 2 years. There I said it 

Scott malone has as many goals as him this season. Anyone who thinks he’s the answer now needs to give their head a wobble, someone like him in his prime maybe, but Martin is milesssss away from what he used to be.

Both Vydra and Martin took time to settles and even then a change of system to suit their style before they played well.

Martin would suit our style away from home, we do need a hold up man, unfortunately though we can’t mould a team around him as we found out to our cost when he got injured and we had no one to replace him. He also can’t even get into the first 11 at the moment, it’s alright heralding him as the saviour, but given he has been at two or three teams now shows he is not the answer. 

Hold up man alright ,,, dick Turpin would be proud of martins last contract robbery ,,,

Agree with that, it helped the fans aswell was a good atmosphere last night which if the players show that fight and spirit of chasing everything then it can be a great atmosphere 

Must be joking. Totally silent all game.

This is all true but we could conceivably be 9th going into the break as Villa, Preston and Forest all have winnable games on Saturday.  

Thought I might have an ACCA on these three winning and knocking us down to 9th, thought I may as well get rich on our failure, but the odds were only 9-1. Five thirty eight have us a 33-1for promotion.

Well done to Frank and the boys. Great performance by the whole team - not bothered about the result too much - just glad to see us fighting for the points again. 

And ive no idea how Butland finds himself playing in the Championship. Single handedly kept Stoke in that and set up one of their only chances. Without him we would have absolutely pasted that team. Hope a Prem team buys him for next season.

Hold up strikers are so last decade, game has moved on, pressing high up the field is how FL wants to play and for that we need a certain type of player. It will take a couple of transfer windows but we are going the right way, the injuries in midfield has hampered us more than the switching of the two strikers.

CM was brilliant for us, but he needs to find a team that plays to his style, no coincidence that he finds himself on the bench so often now, and the problem with him is that he needs to play every week. S

Pretty pointless bringing waghorn in then if that's the case.

He's even less mobile than Martin.

I'd suggest,in response to your final point,that all of the strikers need to be playing regularly both for their match sharpness and so that the rest of the team supporting them have half a clue what they are up....Marriott and waghorn are both suffering from that problem.

Yeah its fair comment but just wondered what would make you believe that? 

Martin doesn't really suit our style of play because he doesn't chase down defenders the way Waghorn and Marriott do.

Didn't see much of that last night. Plus if we did it didn't work. 😉

We forced a lot of errors from closing down from the front, to say it didn’t work imo is not true.

Less mobile? No chance. The only thing less mobile than Martin sadly is Thorne.

You've not seen him playing for Hull then? Looks pretty mobile (and even thin!) Scored last night too, sort of chance Nuge has been missing...

Nice to see the old Martin bashers out. Bit strange they seem to revel in mocking him. It makes me wonder what he ever did to upset them. 🤔

I have a few theories, and with some actual reasons that I have seen people put;

1- score against forest. It seems that even some average players it gives them a hyped up recognition (see Marcus Olsson)

2- we didn't get promotion, so it is his fault because he is the striker and he didn't score more goals.

3- he doesn't run around like a headless chicken, chasing after a ball that he is never going to get. 

4- he is mardy. They see him throwing a strop when he isn't passed the ball, when his team mates needlessly give the ball away, when his team mates take stupid shots and miss. (reality is he wants to win as much as the fans and isn't happy when we lose)

5- he falls over easily

6- he chews chewing gum whilst playing

7- he is past it/not very good.
