Sorry, my "Just back" comments put on players ratings thread by mistake.  I could not resist checking the ratings and got distracted.

I would add that I thought we were going from 3-1 straight to 5-1.  Which was deserved on the play.

Maybe he's Back In The USA?


Perhaps he fooled  us all and went to the match in a "Brilliant disguise" as a Barnet supporter He shouted out you were "Lucky Town" then we all saw through his disguise and realized it was Brucie. He then decided that "because the night" was closing in he was getting a bit scared by the "Darkness on the edge of Town" but that doesn't sound like Brucie, because he's "Tougher than the rest"..

A few people moaning like **** in the lower smiths when Arnold was on the ball, didn't think he had a bad game at all, kept wanting to come central on and off the ball, don't have an issue with it if he's doing some good.

There was a ball to Mackreth right corner of the Osmond, all on his own no players except one of theirs on him, wish the players would of pushed forward and helped him.

Other than that thought it was a good all round performance, slight mistake by a player and fans get on their backs, hardly put a foot wrong today.  Palmer was brilliant held the ball well, linked well with 'Shop', and scored a cracking goal. If he's got some consistency like that it would be great to keep him till the end of the season, his contract runs out at the end of the season apparently.

All in all though I think the fans were great today, every time we was in their half you could hear "Go on, go on!" cheering them to push forward, need to do this every game, spurs the players on.

A few Mansfield fans were watching the game on BT Sport >> [url=http://www.stagsnet.net/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25491]http://www.stagsnet.net/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25491[/url]

Palmer said on the radio not long ago "Would love to stay if the opportunity was there, but up to both clubs etc etc."  Good to hear anyway.

Concur with what most have said. The work rate, effort and fitness were the catalyst for victory.

Agree the ref did pretty well too.

I was very critical of Arnold after Macc at home but he worked hard and gave us an outlet today. Mackreth also did well because he forced their left back to defend as I am told he is one of their stars by creating chances.

It was more of Browns sort of game, ratting around midfield winning the ball and moving it on

Both their centre backs were huge and although Stephens has played well against us in the past he was blowing out his bottom within 20 mins and neither of them could cope with Zlatan or the Shop's movement.

IMO we must rest the starting XI on Monday and play the subs and supplement it with youth so that these guys are fresh for (hopefully) Nuneaton on Saturday.

Credit to the fans too. I could actually hear the Ponny singing for most of the game. Credit

If you could win the league by making the most passes out of play to the Main Stand, then Barnet are champs. This was a result of us pressing them all the time and forcing the errors.  That and tiredness on their part.

Barnet were very poor.  I do not think that they had a good shot on target in open play all game?

Before the game we discussed how many of their players would wear gloves. Answer "none", bar the keeper.  All their players wore short-sleeve shirts with no other visible warm tops (unlike some of our players).   If they wanted to play kidology regarding the view of "southern softies", then it did not help them.  Some of their fans commented when first arriving at the ground as to how bitter cold it was. I am sure their players felt the same.  They were not up for it. They may go on a slump now.  
.......................
We were excellent all game. (Apparently the game is shown again on BT Sports tomorrow (Sun) at 0900 hrs.   Magnay is magnificent.  He is also imperious.  Like Bobby Moore used to, he always has enough time even if he is not favourite to get to it.  One-on-one in a very dangerous position, he gets the ball and stops the danger.  All calmly with no fuss. He personally thanked the fans after the game in a very encouraging way.  

"Andy Carroll"  was also the difference up front.  He even has the same pony-tail.  Palmer works harder and is better at holding the ball up.
....................
The fans played their part today. PH said that the players could hear them before the game. The Pontoon were in good voice.  Must be down to those new flags. It is possible that the fans generally were more up for it than the Lincoln game.  This could be because the fanbase was only true supporters today. The atmosphere was not tainted by many non-regulars who are reluctant to give vocal support.  

PH could still find a negative.   On RH afterwards he said that it would be the same group of players whatever position we finished.  He did mention 1st, but also mentioned finishing 16th.  He is allowed to be PH today.  (He also gave the impression that he want to field a strong team at Gateshead, if the game is on).

Town were much better today. A huge improvement on the recent home games homes v Lincoln,Macclesfield and Gateshead.

I feared the worst when they went one up but to be fair to Town the players responded and turned the game around very quickly. Barnet had a couple of spells of possession but i dont recall Macca having anything to do really part from picking the ball out of the net on the penalty.

MOM for me was Palmer, scored a great goal and was involved in most of the good things Town did today. He has a good touch for a 'big man'  and was lively. With more games under his belt i am sure he will continue to get better. Is he on a months loan? If so get him to the end of the season.

I would also mention Magnay (as usual) LJL and Disley as standouts. I thought Arnold had some good moments but seemed to run out of steam a bit in the 2nd half. I think if we'd had a wide player on the bench Hurst may have taken him off but Hursty clearly didnt want to change the teams shape and took Palmer off instead.

We beat the top of the league team quite comprehensively so lets hope this builds the confidence and we continue this form into the next games.
