  • count me in




  • If they score 4 we will score 5 type of approach. I like it.




  • See you tonight lads lets get a win




  • 2-2 after being 2-0 down.

    We were plain awful in the first half.
    However we turned it around in the second, i think without the sending off we would have got the 3 points.




  • Yeh, we were dire in the first half. Marsen is right, we're starting games very sluggishly, particularly the 7.15pm starts.

    On the plus side, we had plenty of good throughpasses paid and could've won it, but while going 2 down is very poor, getting back on level terms and then looking like we could win it is no bad thing. So a decent enough second half, we certainly sharpened up and started fighting harder for the ball. We really need lads to take responsibility for communicating to each other more - letting them know what you're seeing can help them make better decisions quicker.

    We played the ball out via short kicks/throws much more than recently, so that was something taken onboard from last week, though I put my hands up that we still didn't win enough headers from goal kicks. While we may want to play it short often, reality is in practice there'll be 20 odd kickouts in any game whether we like it or not, and we're simply not winning enough of those in midfield. So all the midfielders and strikers need to focus on ensuring we win a higher percentage of those kickouts than we're currently winning. Losing so many of them as we are at the moment just gives the opposition more easy possession and puts us on the back foot. Gain equality in winning headers and we'll start getting much more quality go-forward possession that we can then kick-start our passing game.

  • Good job, sounds like you battled and got back on level terms.

    Hoping to be back next week.




  • a good fightback but we were lucky we have to start being more disciplined thats 3 yellows in 6 games it leaves us on the backfoot pretty bad we conceded our second when we went down to 10 yesterday, ball alley next week tough game hopefully we get back to winning ways, a quick look at them yesterday seems like they can play out from the back pretty effectively we will have to come up with a way to counter that.

    Who got sent off....

    That's easy press higher up the pitch and forwards split out to full backs.
