Something I like with Shops penalties are that they are never the same where as we know Hannah's are routine.

Quoted from BIGChris
LJL led the line well but at times the support was a little slow in arriving.


Agree, Saturday was a stroll in the park. I thought Dartford were awful and will probably be relegated. I thought Peter Sweeney was a disgrace, he showed touches well above this level but wasn't prepared to do any graft at all when his team mates needed him to dig in. When they made the double substitution after about 65 minutes, Sweeney was looking over and seemed gutted his number wasn't up. He must have 'run' about a mile all game. The best thing their manager could do is drop the lazy so and so. Sweeney will retire soon, he shouldn't need to work again, he should have played most of his career in the championship earning a ten figure weekly wage yet he's scratching around, playing part time non league football at barely 30 years old. What a waste of talent.

Anyway, Sweeney aside I do think 4-3-3 suits the squad (aside from Ross Hannah) but I am concerned we will not create enough chances against the better sides as for me, we still have the problem that the wider forwards aren't getting close enough to Lenny. In fact, they seem to be hugging the touchline and we look more of a 4-5-1. Also, despite playing a holding midfielder, the other two central midfielders aren't really pushing on into the 18 yard box as often as they should. Small tweaks are needed, but it's been a while now and the players don't seem to be taking it on board.

Nowadays mate, that's an average championship midfielders wage. Personally, I think he had enough ability to play at that level for a number of years. Don't you?

Ten figures indicates a wage of at least £1,000,000,000 per week.

Wish I'd spent more time kicking a ball around if that's the money on offer for a second tier player!

He definitely had the ability. But think about how much ten figures is   .

so many positive comments on this thread is scary !

Magnay best since McDermott ?

Arnold's goal was brilliant, like the shops at Torquay, if in the Premiership, the pundits would of loved it !

Pittman looked eager to get the ball when come on which was good to see, and there just seems to be a positive vibe with the players and staff.

Very pleased with the 3 points and a more-than-useful contribution from Pell.

Final thoughts: if we're going to play 433 well I think we'll need Brown to be in the team; wonder how Paddy feels about Pell's
signing and start?


i would like to think Paddy is happy for more fight for a position, i like to think any Professional likes to have to work for his place
