He was NOT at fault for any of the Charlton goals.
I honestly think he could have done better for both of theirs tbh BG. Look it's not a go at Coops but for some reason this week all of them have wobbled. The back 3 all of a sudden look on a par with last seasons clowns (slight exaggeration but you know what I meanšŸ˜‚). The midfield aren't winning battles, the wingbacks are right off the boil and the strikers are not getting in there with shots.

It all adds up to a terrible run tbh.

Have Cooper's apparent wobbles anything to do with post-Accrington tweet and the subsequent disquiet about social media illustrated by his manager?

Unfortunately using the old cliche your teams underachieving has a negative effect on your team from a psychological perspective. Adams said the same and it had the same effect. Your saying you don't actually rate your players. You might think that, but the fans don't want to hear it, and nor would the players I'd imagine.

This is spot on.
From recollection not only Adams used to say it, RL also said it last year around New Year time, and look what then happened ....... !

So you really think that stuff on social.media 2 weeks ago would lead to him making a mistake yesterday? Wow
For someone with green in their posting name you can be very black snd white with some of your responses. I posed a question, that's all. I believe that winning and losing in elite sport is about fine margins and everyone needs to be 100% at it. But just a question; just a thought. that it COULD be a contributory factor.

Clubs employ psychologists because elite sports people carry a burden of stress which, if uncontrolled, can produce an irrational, negative impact on performance. This can operate in the opposite way, of course, where players delude themselves that they are World beaters. RL and his staff will be working very hard this week to get some reality into the player's heads, I think we are a better team than the last three matches suggests.

Agree. For what's it worth, I think we were fairly hard done by versus Wigan. I think a draw would have been a fair result but you could see in those last 5 minutes Wigan really put us under pressure which we couldn't deal with.

For me, I think RL should sense that, and try to halt the momentum. Whether that's by bringing on a sub, or just trying to see out a point with a few Wycombe tactics, I don't know. But it was very clear that we were massively under the kosh for the last 5 or so minutes and it seemed to me as though RL didn't really react to it. We've conceded a lot of late goals this season, so I think we have a lot to work on in terms of seeing a result out.

Probably tiredness. He's played the bulk of the players in every game.

What happened to squad rotation? Maybe we aren't strong enough as a squad to do that.
