If we continue to play like that, we will not even going to make the play offs.  Very poor today by everyone.

Hope we put up a better performance on Tuesday night, but after todays performance, I think another 500 will not be watching it

Quoted from Chrisblor
Carl Magnay's hitting the nail on the head on the radio right now. Giving the interview Hurst should be giving - identifying what went wrong, suggesting we don't need a holding midfielder at home and apologising for a shambolic performance.


Quite. I thought Hurst's interview was infuriating.

We do have two other midfielders under contract but they're not getting a look in whilst the non-performing loanees are preferred. Frustrating for me that he'll give a loan defender a run of games in central midfield despite not putting in the performances, but he won't afford that same opportunity to  McLaughlin, who's had little more than the odd game here or there out of position and 10 minutes off the bench every few weeks.


Exactly. We have decent  midfielders on the bench or in the stands and we bring in 2 loan players who are no better. I just don't understand why he keeps bringing in players in positions we don't need, when we have the worst performing strikers in the top 5.

Paddy must be well drunk off watching Pells non performances. Similarly Clay with Parslow.

Agree Kiddy looked pretty good. Passed the ball went, created shooting opportunities, took decent set plays and had a few tasty long shots. That said I think we allowed them to play due to our poor midfield (especially Pell who was abysmal) and dost defending (Aswad and Toto who were both all over the place physically and psychologically!). LJL worked hard but had no decent service as was pleased with Pittmans efforts when he came on.

Neilson and Arnold were both really good in my opinion. Arnold looks a right player and although he struggled for an end product, Neilson's dribbling was immense. I love that trick he does where his belly goes one way as then he dribbles the other way.

No excuses today  Mr Hurst . anyone in the ground could see our formation wasnt working . I said to the people next to me that he will probably wait till we go 2-0 to change ........ Guess what ............ It should have been changed after 10 mins IMO , Nothing wrong with admiting you got it wrong

Keep Disley in the TEAM
Why does Pell get the nod over Clay ??
If it isnt working change it , even after 10 mins

If he wants to play 1 upfront, at home, he has to take the holding player out and put a no.10 in behind LJL.

            Clay    Brown

Pittman    Nielson   Arnold

                 LJL.

Very, very, very frustrating. Not quite ruined my 25th birthday but it certainly doesn't leave me wanting to do a great deal of celebrating.

I thought we started fairly brightly. Arnold looking to build on his strong performance at Alty by running at the Kidderminster defence with vigour. Their goal, ironically, came as a result of a Town corner. Pell didn't win the ball and Marvin Johnson was able to surge forward before slotting calmly underneath McKeown.

After they scored you expected a reaction from Town but that didn't come. Neilson was the only attacking player who looked relatively threatening for us. Unfortunately, though, even he seemed to lose his composure when he eventually got in a position to shoot yet decided otherwise.

My two major concerns were the lack of depth we had in attack and Pell's inability to start a positive move or stand *tall* when Kidderminster broke forward. Quite honestly I would play Clay instead of him in the next game. I don't think, realistically, there was much we could do about the second goal. Byrne's header was powerful and Magnay did well to get a boot on the ball but couldn't stop it from finding the back of the net.

The lack of depth in attack today was concerning. I still do not understand why Neilson is played on the left. It's obvious that he'll move inside, which always leaves Aswad exposed at left-back. Subsequently it also means Aswad is not able to go forward on the overlap as much because of the lack of cover.

I still would persist with LJL on his own up top because I'm not sure how you accommodate Neilson and Arnold if you play two up front. Unless you use Arnold as a striker, of course. Not sure he'd be too comfortable playing that role, though.

The best eleven I think we have is: McKeown - Magnay, Nsiala, Pearson, Thomas - Clay, Brown - Arnold, Neilson, Mackreth - LJL (4-2-3-1). If you want two up top then you could go for: McKeown - as above - Clay, Brown, Disley - Neilson - Pittman, LJL (4-3-1-2). The latter obviously means there is no threat from the wings but gives you more numbers in attack.

Now for a few beers and a curry.


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