At last, at last, at last, a performance worthy of the name.

After their penalty we just blew them away all over the pitch. First to everything, won most headers and tackles but most of all, got the ball down and played football. Ollie Palmer was fantastic and my MOM, just. Many fine performances and Arnold was as good today as i've seen him and light years beyond his Xmas efforts. Credit where it's due. Defence were solid as a rock after the early set back. Macca hardly troubled.

It is however bittersweet, because to see us play like this just makes the losses to teams down below all the more galling. We could be pi$$ing this league

Anyway, it's about today and the players were to a man fantastic. Restored my faith a bit in the team and the manager.

Well done all, including the fans who showed they will get behind the team if they perform.

My thoughts exactly, today's performance has given me a right buzz, the closing down and chasing Barnet all over the pitch was great to see.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Agreed!!

We were just better in all departments than them.

Palmer looks like what we have been missing. Tall & athletic. Brilliant finish for his goal.

Pearson had Akinde in his pocket all game, but every player played well, no weak links.Magney MOM for me.

Begs the question why can't we play like that every game?

Meant to mention Magnay but freezing and needed to make a cuppa. What a signing he has been.

Only gave Palmer my MOM because it was his league debut and he made all the difference up front. We've had some good performances without looking dangerous up top this season. He changed all that and could be that missing ingredient.

Sounded very good on the radio. Just as we shouldn't overreact to a bad result / performance, we shouldn't get too carried away after a win. But a performance and result like that against the leaders shows the players do have it in them. Now let's have some consistency please. Approach each game positively and get the right service into LJL and Palmer's feet. Balls to the FA trophy, the promotion push is back on

Especially after the 3rd goal when I half expected to see us sink back and let them have the ball. This is the way the team should be playing every game - to its strengths.

Palmer looked to have some presence, took his goal well and should have had two more. Arnold looked interested as well but Magnay looked the class player.

What struck me about Barnet was the size of some of their players, there were at least 3 or 4 who seemed well overweight and it showed in the second half when we looked much fitter than them.



"There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone, and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends, I still can recall
Some are dead, and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all."

What I think John Lewis said as well in the interview post match.They do it against the big teams but the smaller teams can struggle.Is it a case of arrogance?   Hope Hurst can address this because based on that performance we would probably be winning most  of our games if that level was kept up

Agree with all the points made, keep this up Town. Such energy, this is the Brown we all hoped that we'd signed. Too many great displays to mention but I'd like to make a mention for the ref, great display, spotted almost everything and made the best use of the advantage rule I've seen in yonks.
I'm convinced refereeing displays of this quality would bring more fans in and lead to better games.
A good day.

Excellent performance. Well done Palmer and Magnay especially but I felt everyone put a great shift in.
