Didn’t go but listened to the commentary on Bath City radio. Whilst commentaries from the home team are normally biased, to be fair they did us some credit. The problem is there didn’t sound like there was much to give us credit for!!!

As often said its was only a friendly, but we didn't score a first this pre season.

We never get anything from Bath. I don't know why I go there to be honest!

First half, seemed to be 5-4-1, we really struggled to get out of our own half. Tim changed it after about thirty minutes going to a back four and we looked much better.

Second half again, we matched them but seemed to run out of ideas towards the end and they were doing everything that we wanted to do but much better.

They seemed to have a pretty strong team out. We seem to be quite a way off working out what our best team is.

Well where do I start…
Granted I don’t think TF has started his best eleven players yet but we looked like a pub team.
Zac Jeacock played in goal, made some decent saves but that’s it.We never had a meaningful shot in the first half with our only tactics were to hoof it up to Danny Wright, a flick on to nobody.
Durrell lasted about 15 minutes, it appeared to be an injury, just as well really- embarrassing.
Scott Wilson who led the Bath attack ran us ragged .
With Durrell off on came Hanksy and JP who at least showed a bit of steel.
Second half with the introduction of Harry Williams replacing Danny Wright we actually had a meaningful shot on target and it was slightly better.
Clearly the players signed are in for a dog fight this season.
I am by nature a pretty optimistic man but my God that was dire.

Quite honestly I can’t remember being this worried about an upcoming season, we are just over a week from the first game and we look terrible.

First half it was a shooting gallery, it could’ve been anything-nil, Wright looked isolated, we couldn’t string one or two passes together - it was all just lumped long or into a tackle every time we got the ball. Second half a bit better.

On a positive note I’m delighted to see Jeacock in the fold, hopefully we can get him in for a season, we might just need an EFL keeper if we’re going to give away that many chances each week. If we can get him, along with Hanks and Reckord would be the three signings I’ve been happy to see although even the latter was going through the motions tonight.

I pains me to be so down even before a ball is kicked in the league but there has been concerns all summer from a broad church of fans on the playing side, and performances like tonight just cement those beliefs I’m afraid.

Sounds like a dreadful game. We're really not anywhere near ready, are we?

Let's hope the teams we play in August are in a similar state.

I'm beginning to wonder if we are going to be ready at any time this season to be honest, we dont seem to have improved at all and the only club we've beat was from 2 steps below. Thank goodness Patrick signed on the Chippenham core.
Patrick must be a little concerned already, as its not likely to bring in the gates needed for the budget is it?

I couldn't go last night (working away and I've seen us lose enough times at Twerton Park for one lifetime). However, reports don't sound great.

Last year we dominated Bath in a friendly beating them 3-1 at home, and it should have been more. Goals from Mitford, James, Leadbitter. And that wasn't even our strongest squad which King went on to build later in the season.

Jeacock is a great signing if we can get him. 22 year old with football league experience. 2 or 3 more of those might help.

It's sad for Tim and Patrick. They came to Gloucester thinking they would inherit some of Kings play off players. Unfortunately, reality has come home. They have left and we have got together a side that appears not to be  up to the level of NLN.
