i dont get these claims ?

if we didn't concede in the last minute, would people still be saying brown should have played instead of disley ?

when you have won 5 league games on the bounce, why change it ?


It's frustration mate, we are dropping too many points to teams near the bottom of the league,

If you are 1-0 up and keep trying to hang on instead of going for the 2nd,

You will get caught now and again.

Is Disley in form?! Sounded completely anonymous yesterday.


I blame that on the booking he received, after that he was anonymous, another poor booking, i blame an overreacting alty player,

Probably for once PH got it right with his selection of LJL, Arnold and Neilson. The midfield seems to have improved when Brown and Clay came on.

The problem is more that the players are not keeping to the passing game and pressure that you need to do for a proper 4-3-3 so it ends up as 4-5-1. Whether they were playing to orders or not I don't know.

The other issue is LJL. When your only striker is not a massive goalscorer from open play you have to rely on someone else producing the goals. If your 3 midfield players are any good they should be able to cope with a poor side like Altrincham and push the wingers forward. I would like to think that Arnold especially could be used like Stuart Brace was, almost exclusively as an attacker.

Sorry to say this but Disley is past his best. He slows the play down and is often left wanting. He misses chances and gets turned by his man too often. Yes, he does get the odd goal (12 last season), and he is often the last man, heading off the line, however, he would be fourth on my list behind Pell, Brown and Clay. We need pace and movement in the middle. UTM

Don`t think Brown and Clay will score anything near that amount of goals,  and Pell will be gone soon now that Brown is fit and Parsely is loaned in

Interesting that 12 goals is considered the odd goal! Most teams in our league would kill for that figure. I've seen Pell twice now and he appears to lack pace and movement. Oh and for someone of his height he appears to be unable to head the ball!!


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

I feel the same as you , however our manager like most have their favorites that rarely get dropped . We play a frustrating unattractive and not very exciting style . This will invariably affect the crowds who want to be entertained . I think we will get to the play offs , but then it's who turns up on the dsy .

Disley was excellent against Halifax on Tuesday so he's clearly not past it. Didn't go yesterday, but it sounded to me as though all of our midfielders were a little disappointing so not sure why Disley is (yet again) being singled out?

As for goals, note that he's been a bit-part player for much of the season, yet has scored as many as Brown and Clay (generally the first choice pairing) combined. If he were to get close to double-figures again it would be incredibly valuable for the team. Unlikely, however, as he's not generally been first choice so far.

Personally, I'm hoping to see a lot more from Brown, who started the season very brightly, but was in pretty indifferent form for the month or so before his injury. Similarly, Clay has been a bit hit and miss, possibly due to a combination of illness and injury?

Regardless, following yesterday's disappointment, let's hope we bounce back well.
