Unless it's been removed for some reason   I havn't seen a just back thread. Well here goes then, I've just got back from three enjoyable days staying with friends in Newport. Sorry to say the only disappointment was the first 45 minutes of the match, we could easily have been 4 -0 down in the first 20 minutes if it wasn't for some excellent blocks from Macca and another headed off the line by I think it was Clark and have to say some pretty dire shooting from the Newport forwards. Rose was having a mare and wasn't surprised to see him replaced at half time.
In the first half we didn't look to have a clue how to clear our own box and the ball was continually coming straight back in to the danger area, I thought here we go again another performance like Crewe away last season. God knows how we kept it to 0-0 at half time.As the second half got underway I was pleased to see Sommerfield who as of late has played well, on for Rose, I'm sure Slade must have stuck a rocket up their ar$es as they played like a completely different team, I never thought that Sommerfield would ever transform a game but yesterday he for me was MOM by a mile. We also looked much more of a threat when DJ replaced Dembele, both Sommerfield and DJ deserve a start on Tuesday. The Amond goal was from a long throw into our box and the usual gift goal handed on a plate,once again terrible defensive marking,we know what Amond is, a jack in the box and he was completely unmarked. We huffed and puffed and on the second half display,in my opinion we just shaded it and perhaps deserved something out the game.  On Saturday morning I had a walk around Newport shopping precinct I bumped into a young man named Padraig Amond,he was with a middle aged couple,perhaps his mother and father, I had a bit of a chat and said to him in a jovial way that he's going to be playing for the wrong team that afternoon and he replied to me in a quite serious way that "He didn't want me", don't really know who he meant by "He". I replied to him, that everyone else would have been very happy for him to be playing for GTFC. I jokingly said "don't you score against us today and he just replied "I'll try" .not sure if he meant try not to score or I'll try to score.   .   Anyway he's a likeable young man.    We move on and hopefully 3 points on Tuesday night.  UTM.

Thanks for the report. Must be the latest ever Just Back thread. Interesting to hear that there was an improvement second half


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

I too have just returned after a lovely long weekend away and would agree with Grimal.  Summerfield changed the game, but my main problem was we failed to put balls in to their box in the second half when we had opportunities to.  The strikers had very little to feed off.  We definately shaded the second half and could have got something out of the match.
There was very little between the teams except they were far more physical and bullied us a bit.  We always seem to struggle against those teams, wheras when we play footballing sides like Crewe, we are ok.

Would happily taking losing at Newport for a win against Lincoln this Saturday though.

Well done for those that went to the game, thanks for the post. I guess if Hurst had been that keen on Podge he would be playing for Shrewsbury now. Then again the lad you met failed to include during that close season we offered him another year but he chose not to sign it as he wanted longer, allegedly M'Lord.

Nice report and a refreshing insight into events ON the field.

Clearly loads of work to do it's a big squad but with this sort of form it's up to how much those players really want to play first team football.

If it was me I would be busting a gut to play every game. We now have two home games to get back on track.

Just rectified  ,  Threw me a bit, with another thread on about pre-war GTFC quality of teams and if I recall wasn't it 2 points for a win in those days ?

He didn't want me (but offered me a contract anyway that wasn't as good as one elsewhere)
