I think we can. From what I gather they are good when teams come and sit deep, play on the counter because they have clever enough players to break down oppositions. They struggle when sided try and attack them, If we had Akinde, where would we be?

Sorry to say no.
Even if we take 6 points off em they will still have enough to win the league.

In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

All it takes to gut a team is a couple of injuries to influential players so they are by no means certainties to walk away with the league.

However, the same thing is true for all teams. If we were to lose, say Pearson and LJL for a couple of months, we'd seriously struggle to cope.

I've not seen any of the matches played by Barnet this season so have no idea what they are like as a team, but their record so far would indicate they are pretty good for this level.

We won't score enough goals, we'll drop daft points and will finish around 15 points short but we'll make the play offs and go out in the semi final.

If you look at the number of points needed to win this league we would need to find a 10 game winning run to do it. Just my opinion , but we don' t look good enough. We need better wingers and a forward to share the pressure with Lenny, he is the only reliable striker. For me the play offs again I am afraid UTM

Of course we can, but I doubt it.

The next few games will help to see, the games against Macclesfield are vital and at least 4 points will be needed if we are to stay in the race for the total.

Alas, along with others, possible but we wont do it. It's the points lost against the so called lesser teams as usual im afraid whereas Barnet have done them all big time. They lose 3 on the trot and you think theyve bottled it then they go and win 3 on the spin! I said pre season we should sign Akinde and then he goes and bites me on the ar$e and wins them the title

We don't have the firepower to do it and the points lost to lesser sides will cost us in the end.
