According to Braintree fans on their forum we will still be here next season.   Lol how can they make an assessment one just one game.  


What all 9 of them ?

What a Braintree supporter knows about football isn't worth knowing.

Ugly 1-0 wins away from home? That's what Champions are made of!

Always interesting to read the 'Just Back' thread when you've listened to the match on RH.

The impression I got from listening to John Tondeur was:
* Clay and Magnay had their worst games for Town this season
* Mackreth was a virtual spectator who should have been subbed at half-time
* Pell did very little of note
* Toto, though defensively OK, gave away possession too often with misdirected upfield punts
* Arnold was our biggest threat 1st half, but faded 2nd
* LJL was often isolated and up against a good CB (this seems generally agreed)
* Disley put in a MOM performance in a defensive midfield role
* You could have trained an orang-utan to referee the match better (this seems generally agreed)

Oh well, many people can watch the same match and all see it differently.
Probably a big part of football's appeal.

* Clay and Magnay had their worst games for Town this season ( It wasnt Clays best game but Magnay was......Magnay)
* Mackreth was a virtual spectator who should have been subbed at half-time ( i wonder who it was on the highlights skinning the full back and crossing)
* Pell did very little of note
* Toto, though defensively OK, gave away possession too often with misdirected upfield punts (defensively outstanding IMO but there were 2 or 3 long balls in the 2nd half that were too long
* Arnold was our biggest threat 1st half, but faded 2nd
* LJL was often isolated and up against a good CB (this seems generally agreed) The tall centre back, a loanee looked decent but if JT thought Toto played some aimless balls the No6 hammered the ball 4 miles in the air or into the stand at every opportunity-I'd have been embarrassed to play like that)
* Disley put in a MOM performance in a defensive midfield role
* You could have trained an orang-utan to referee the match better (this seems generally agreed) No dissenters for that one

Exactly the impression I got from listening too. Well put.  

I think BC's remarks add more depth and perspective though, so thankful for that.

I sort of don't care about the detail of last night. All about the result for me. We found a way to win. Big smiles and lots of credit all round for that, beacuse that's what you need to do if you want to get promoted.

What we need now, is to break the trend of recent seasons and take it forward from here through Christmas into early spring, taking the inevitable setbacks on the chin, but not fading or falling into the old familiar traps, losing focus or quality. We must be better at home. Said it a million times. In addition to helping us to acquire points, it will tackle issues around attendance, atmosphere, revenue, 'negativity' etc - all topics hotly debated on here recently.

tbh I thought we were ! (good post though)

If energy saved 2nd half v Dartford means it helped beat Braintree, then much as I'd LOVE to see a cricket score (and feel it may get us really buzzing again), I'm tempted to say b0llocks to "entertainment" too.

Let's face it chaos, we could win 12-0 and some (at least on here) are never gonna be "buzzing" until we secure promotion ?
Or am I wrong ?

If I AM wrong, maybe the FA Cup is the "nothing to lose / everything to gain" type fixture we can use to our advantage right now.

For me, how much "welly" we put in trying to rack up a feast of goals and entertainment largely depends on whether those playing Saturday also play on Tuesday.

So perhaps I'd just be happy scraping a 1-0...

Oh well chris we will have to disagree. Thought Alan had ljl under control and ljl scarcely won a header all night. I wished he'd gone and played up against the 21 coz I felt he was accident prone.gangly and never looked in control of the defensive situations.Alan was v solid in comparison
