Friskney never show anyhow, giving it large on the internet but more excuses than Lincoln on a school day.
They've never got over the shame of the pre arranged off with Croft womens institute at Wainfleet St Mary, a supposed neutral "venue".
Snidey sods mobbed up with Leake common side pigeon fanciers but still got ran all the way back to Wrangle when Mrs Snodgrass pulled her knitting needle out and gave it large.
Friskney?
Two bob outfit and no mistake.

We were kinda hamstrung by the Vernon injury, but Slade needs his head read sticking a 20 year old up front on his own in his full league debut against one of the best teams in the league.

Without Vernon he should have shuffled the deck properly and gone with a different formation and commensurate personnel.

We seem to have found a way to nullify Sam Jones kudos on that.

Quoted from Maringer


I certainly agree that Jones shouldn't be starting in wide positions. I don't think he's done much at all in pre-season playing wide in the games I've seen and he needs to be more central to be most effective.

However, it was certainly supposed to be Slade's 4-2-3-1 today, not 4-5-1. If it had been 4-5-1 we might have been a bit tighter at the back though it obviously wouldn't have helped us in attack!

If McAllister can get fit and perform as he did in the Plymouth game last season, we'll be a lot better off, regardless of the formation. I'm yet to be fully convinced by Rose as well. More physical than our other midfielders, but I'm not sure yet whether he's good enough on the ball. As it stands, if we're playing a holding pair, my first choices would be McAllister and Clements.

Hopefully, we can become a bit more attack-minded at home in future and we won't see more than one holding midfielder starting. 4-1-3-2, perhaps?


I'm sure today was a 4141 with rose sitting in front of the defence which really turned into a 451 because we were just sitting back hoping dembele could turn the game for us.

What was he supposed to do? Vernon gets injured at most 20 mins before kick-off, is he supposed to change one player or the whole system with players who've never started before?

Jones up top and a proper winger in his place. Sorted.

Dull dull dull.

We do have some decent attacking players so let's set up to attack from the start and hope our steady Eddies can hold out. Encourage them to get ball yo feet and give it a real go

Just back from "the Smuggs" and spoke to Josh Gowling......good man, we reminisced when he got his shirt pulled for the penalty at Braintree.

He's assembled a squad of 27 players, it Newellesque in size enough for a plan a, b, c d and z.
