Various reports dotted around so I'll start a new one...

Agree 1st half was a bit dire, was a lack of urgency for me and felt slightly disappointed.
Came out more positive 2nd half.
Guiseley played some good passing stuff around the box for a while at 0-2 but generally, I expected more from them.

Quick rundown...

McKeown - Good save 2nd half !
Thomas - Didn't get forward massively but did ok.
Pearson - Solid performance with some good distribution.
Nsiala - Again made a couple of minor errors in defence ! Playing some good passes into feet from the back.
Magnay - Very good solid game...
Neilson - Perhaps guilty of trying too much 1st half.
Slightly suprised he came off - was this because of the "width" issue Hurst mentioned post match ?
Clay - Has good vision but misplaced a few passes. Not his greatest game but is a good stopper to have.
Disley - Generally a good game, passing it sensibly. Unlucky not to score from Arnold's delivery.
Mackreth - Liked his contribution, movement and passing. Ran more 2nd half with a delightful cross for the 1st goal.  
Hannah - Worked hard and linked up well. Got a couple of long range efforts on target but didn't have his shooing boots today and perhaps a little guilty of greed on a couple of occasions.
LJL - Actually thought the 2 goals slightly flattered his overall performance. Didn't have a great touch and missed one good chance 1st half but showed a lot of fight in the tackle and in the area to get his goals.
Arnold - Disappointed he didn't start but played his part in all 3 goals. Probably should have scored from LJL's goal and slowly getting the impression his skill and trickery outweighs his goalscoring ability.
Also impressed by his corner delivery.

Subs little to report...
Arnold or Magnay MOM for me...

Well done Town.

Largely agree with that but I think you're being very generous to Hannah, it's the worst I've seen him play today.
Arnold, scored one and two assists I think.
And definitely Magnay MOM, I cannot believe the way he plays, always spot on and must be a candidate for player of the year if he carries on like this.
How is it that LJL wasn't offside for his second goal ?, he looked to be stood on the goal line from where I was sat when he put it in.

Certainly not a great game but I thought Hannah's outfield contribution was generally good.
I also like how when the ball is about to drop, he often gets his body in front of the defender to win the ball.

Will be interesting to review LJL's goal on the highlights.

In the first half we lacked creativity and movement. Neilson, limited on the left, naturally cut inside which left Aswad exposed at left back. I firmly believe that Neilson can only play behind two strikers, at the tip of a diamond or in front of three central midfielders. He is most effective in a central but roaming position, where he needn't worry too much about defending or filling for players when they overlap him. Good and bold decision by Hurst to replace him with Arnold at HT. Arnold gave the side more balance and looked exciting every time he sprinted down the left side. Played vital role in all three goals, taking the lead with a header after good work from Mackreth on the right. Mackreth needs to get forward more. He didn't get to the byline until the 40th minute. LJL still holds the ball up as good as he ever has but he's now getting into goalscoring positions and that was the difference today. Magnay's cameo appearance in front of the back four when Walker came on towards the end is something we could and should utilise more, especially when defending a lead.


We've got Jason Pearcey, number one, we've got the best team in the land...

Wrote report then pressed delete , buddy .

First half like a pre season game . Rough uncompromising side niggley . Arnold made the difference . Lewis scored no bundled two fortuitous goals made by Arnold . We missed Brown , Hannah very busy but trying too hard  . The front 2 as a pair doesn't work . Disley did what Disley does slowed the game down , Makreth put some nice crosses into the box , Clay and Magnay solid as were the back 4 .

Got through with no bookings and hopefully no injuries .

I thought LJL was superb and fully justified MOM. There was the occasional miscontrol maybe but that's understandable in some of the situations he found himself in.  Held the ball up well, some good flick ons and never say die attitude.  Hannah was poor and I would imagine Nielson's apparent inability to remain out wide resulted in his substitution.

Definite game of two halves. First half as frustrating as any one half this season. Second half much better with Arnold making the difference. He seems very laid back (i.e. he doesn't run around everywhere) but give him the ball things happen. Great instinct for the first goal. LJL is on fire at the moment. I expected the offside flag for his second goal and, judging by the fact he didn't celebrate straightaway so he did he.
Disappointed with Guiseley. They played some pretty stuff early on but didn't go all out to win or defend in depth so got caught between the two stools.
Magnay superb again. Disley put in a very good performance as Brown's replacement. (I don't get this "His legs have gone")


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

Maybe so.
I also wonder if Clay could do a similar job.
Just wonder if there's any reason Hurst prefers Magnay over Clay in that position.

Solid performance today and never looked in any danger of losing.  Town the better side but seemed to lack any urgency in first 45. Said at half time that providing we picked it up we should win fairly easily.

Arnold got my MOTM but guessed that LJL might be given it.  Thought Hannah was particularly poor today. Missed a very good chance that the shop would be slated for !!  

Pleased to see Mackreth finally taking his on his man on the outside and whipping the ball in.  Indeed it was such a move that lead to our first.  Think you'll find that LJL was behind Arnold as he played the ball across for our third (his 2nd), thus not offside.  Felt a bit sorry for LJL being subbed just after scoring his second.  However, it shows that PH can be harsh when needed.  At 3-0 and cruising it gave him the chance to give the pope a run out.
Good to see a good reception for Danny Boshell when he went off.  Also, fair play to the Guiseley fans, singing all the way through.

Nice to see a confident performance against a team that is only one league below us. If we can keep Aswad and Arnold fit we will be there or thereabouts come the end of the season.

'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

We will have to agree to differ. By far the least effective Town player on the pitch. Contrast his headless chicken style with Arnold's measured approach.
He shouldn't take free kicks because he can't!
Summed up for me when he bore down on goal with LJL and Arnold in better positions and fired in a weak effort...
