Anyone remember the last time we scored at Oakwell? Me neither... well I do, but it was a long time ago, but you get my point. The reds weighed in another very poor home showing, where has the attacking waves of positive, creative football gone?
On a positive note, I reckon Mifsud will do quite well for us, it wasn't an amazing debut from the Malta international, but showed some good signs of what we might expect, had the delivery been better than the often lofted over ball or down the wings.
When we were playing well earlier in the season, we had the build up and not the finish, and we built across the park with nice passing, now we should be looking to this creative method with delivery on the floor for players like Mifsud, now the manager has finally realised that players like Odi couldn't hit a cows arse with a banjo. We have a new look strike partnership, and with better delivery we should start to see goals again!
Simon Davey declared himself content with a point from Barnsley's 0-0 draw with Charlton despite a poor performance, his opposite number Phil Parkinson praised the spirit of his players.
Both sides had a number of opportunities to snatch the win after the break but both failed to find the break though.
Thoughts of the Southampton game went through the minds of Barnsley supporters, of another smash and grab by a poor team at Oakwell, but in the end we got a point for what was a terrible showing from the reds, with the exception of the back three, van Hoemeot is not up to scratch in the back four, I believe that Kozluck is a far better choice in that position.
A deflated Davey, who had watched his side end a 26-year losing streak at Hillsborough with a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, admitted his side had not been at their best.
"It was a missed opportunity to get three points and it ends up a point gained," he said.
"We didn't play well on the day we know that and we were poor but we ground a result out.
"Perhaps two or three weeks ago we'd have given a chance away and they'd have gone away with the three points but it was a difficult day with the conditions, the wind was terrible, but at the end of the day a draw was probably a fair result."
Davey admitted expectations were high after the Tykes' first win at Hillsborough since 1979 on Tuesday night, but said he never expected Charlton to roll over.
"If we were going into the Sheffield derby and said we'd be taking four points out of the next two games we'd have all been happy with that," he added.
"It was a fantastic result and performance against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night and we've come home and the expectation level is that we're going to walk all over Charlton because they're bottom of the league but that doesn't happen in football.
"And they've come here and set up very defensively with two banks of four behind the ball and they were hard to break down - it was difficult. It wasn't a pretty game for any of the spectators."
Davey went on to say they his side knew how badly they had played but were relieved to have picked up a point.
"Four points, two clean sheets, one fantastic performance and one performance where we've come up with a draw," he added.
"We know, we've not gone in the dressing room thinking that is a great result, we should be winning our homes games.
"As a manager, player and staff we know we haven't played well but we've come out of it and have got a point."
Charlton boss Parkinson hailed the "spirit and desire" of his players after they came close to winning on the road in the league for the first time since 16th September when they beat Doncaster.
He said: "There are a lot of positives for us, the attitude of the players was excellent and we looked a strong side.
"There were no weak links and we looked a strong and resilient side and we had a couple of chances to go and win it but it just didn't quite fall for us.
"But all in all I can't have any complaints about the spirit and togetherness of the team today."
