His head dropped today after several attempts on Posh goal had failed and to compound it all Cox was right thru with Sharp to his left and he shot straight at the goalkeeper when he should have passed for cert goal.
Does anyone think that these two players do not get on all that well because it seems to me that they would sooner have an attempt themselves instead of passing to each other.
If we had scored 5 today it would not have been unjust on Posh.
The first half was so slow it was more like a training session. Just pick up the pace and we will break thru. Still too much passing around the defence instead of passing upfield. In the first half it was pass it amongst yourselves then hoof it up to Cox and Sharp. These two never got a decent pass along the ground, no wonder they can't score.
The second half was much livelier, by both sides it must be said, and it suddenly became very entertaining. We created some wonderful openings, particulary after Lewis McGugan was replaced by Majewski.
We hit the post, we had one goal dissallowed, we had two efforts which hit their goalie he knew little about and 4 clear cut openings. We also had a referee who missed two obvious handballs and twice a Posh player put the ball out for a throw in and then he let them take the throw. These ref's are beyond belief. In this case the incidents were fairly close to him. Apart from this he had a good game.
However I digress, I just want to say "Chin up Billy and Simon the goals will come" Errors, misses, poor shooting and some poor luck cannot continue, your day will come. Obviously SOD thinks so as he perseveres with them
No. He's working hard and obviously eager to score. That's it.
The goals will come.
He's trying too hard at the moment, he just needs to relax and play how he usually does and the goals will follow.
He's clearly desperate to score. I thought he made the right decision turning that defender, before obviously hitting the ball straight at the keeper..
Thought Cox and Sharp worked well together today. Both are desperate to score, once they do I can see them banging them in.
I haven't yet seen them play enough to form a solid opinion but I'm of the belief that Sharp and Cox are both very similar players. It could be a case that either becomes more effective when doubling up with a player such as Blackstock who can link the mid with the front.
Either way, there are goals in Sharp's boots for sure.

I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.
It's so reassuring to have 3 strikers who you know who will get you goals, this time last season our options upfront were Miller, Derbyshire, Findley and Tudgay.
Pressure must be building up on Billy and the team hence the reason we are not playing great, make no mistake this lad will score goals for fun once he and the rest of the lads are out of the limelight,, too much pressure!!
Be mindful of the force young padawan.
It will come for him. Like someone else said, he's trying too hard at the moment.
It would've given him a boost to have his name chanted by the Forest 3000 following despite those misses. Shows we believe in him, and know it'll come soon.
Apologies but we didn't bring Sharp in to pass to Cox.
Don't panic. This was his first full game wasn't it? Once it starts he will explode...
In Sharp we trust...
As I said on the match thread, you cannot have Sharp and Cox up front with Cohen and McGugan in the middle really.
With Sharp and Cox you need the likes of Pep and Raddy in the middle playing them through.
Cohen and McGugan are good for lobbing balls at Dex, but when Dex is not playing I would not play McGugan.

Cohen set up Cox with a beaut of a delivery to the near post v Derby, which Cox should have at least put on target. Can't say I've seen him too often "lobbing" it up to Blackstock, but then they've barely played together.
I think you're doing a disservice to Cohen there anyway, he is quite adept at linking midfield and attack but it goes unnoticed because of his other attributes.
