Agree about the 'time' shouts for Parslow. He seemed to be stretching for it and rushed a poor clearance. He had time to take a touch and put a proper boot through it, which would've allowed us the time to get out the area. Nice flicked finish though.

McKeown knew the first free kick was going wide, didn't rush across to it. The 2nd one was closer I think.

Pearson covering saved Nsiala a red. Still think it was a 'great' foul.

Yeah good points, think you sum their goal and the foul up perfectly !

Out of interest what would have happened had he seen red ?
Cos he's out for 2 games anyway I think ?

On a more "positive" note however...
Thought there were some good moves going forward.
Slightly unlucky maybe - 90 min & if LJL's goal isn't ruled out....

tbf some 1-0's we'll defend and win, some we won't, that's football...
This 1 up thing is hardly new either, was saying it years ago on the OS !
Seem to remember saying "just pretend it's 0-0 when you're 1 up".
Easier said than done of course !

Still it's sometimes best to kill the game off asap if you can.
Unsuprisingly if 2 go in, players seem to relax a lot more...

It's a one match ban for a professional foul (and he'd still be on however many yellows he's on)

Hmmm, not sure if that's good news or bad.

Yeah it's a nice idea, but the other team are playing as if they're 1-0 down - they're going to pile on pressure! Obviously we withstood the pressure on Tuesday (and at Braintree and Wrexham) but didn't manage on Saturday.

Fair points.
Still think this "defend a lead" thing is playing with fire though. (tbf I did sound a note of caution before the match)
Also wonder if we maybe pull TOO many men back at times - sometimes it looks like everyone bar 1 in the box.
Leave an extra 1 up ?
Or just hovering outside the D to "clean up" maybe ? (same thing for OUR corners too IMO)
Suppose I wouldn't mention it except seen it in other games too.

I guess Hurst has already got the DVD out with a mug of tea as we speak...

Yeah I don't like it when everyone comes back for a corner or free kick.

If nothing else, bringing everyone back into the box means that you are unlikely to pick up the ball when it is cleared.

Much better to leave 2 or 3 players hanging around between the edge of the box and the centre circle where they will have a chance to pick up half-clearances.

My view is that if we are defending late in the game we should always leave a couple of our faster players further up the field to try and collect clearances or if this isn't possible to at least hassle the opposition players who collect the hoofs out of our defence
