A game that summed up how awful non league football is.two of the best teams produced 90 minutes of dire football, mistake after mistake.win the ball, give the ball away.nice bit of skill then fall over your own feet.centre half duties consist of big tackles,big headers and big boots up the pitch.dog eat dog midfield. Draw was probably the ridht result but if Disley is going to give the ball straight to their centre forward for a nice one on one with five mins to go what else do you expect.hannah did well not to stray offside at all but failed miserably at the task he is paid to do.i.e. Score goals when one on one.not once but twice.
Can't even tell you who motm would be.they were all as inept as each other.arnold did well but magny was as poor as I've seen him.
A match which made me realise just how little enjoyment or entertainment there is at this level and how little fun I get from watching town these days.

Strange game. I cannot remember Macca having to make anything other than a single regulation save all game. Toto definitely at fault for the first...a non-event flick inside the six yard box for reasons only he knows. Back in it courtesy of a defenders bullet header. In his defence he was under tremendous pressure from Pearson. A decent amount of Town pressure in the second half without anyone having that goal touch and Disley gives the ball straight to their lad giving him time to pick his spot-game (virtually) over.

Toto was inconsistent throughout-a good tackle one minute then indecision the next. Cannot agree about Magnay thought he was his usual competent self.
Robertson did a reasonable job defensively but doesn't get forward anywhere nearly as often as the player he has replaced.
Neither Clay nor Disley really grabbed hold of midfield. Was disappointed with Jolley who seemed to be having trouble staying on his feet-in fact I'm not Mackreth's biggest fan but he did far more in his 20 minutes or so than Jolley in the rest of the time. Lenny was infuriating-brought one ball down superbly only to give it way straight after.
Hannah did superbly for his first effort only being denied by a fantastic save from Russell (who usually has a great game against us) but should have scored with his second-if not from the original but from the rebound-perhaps it is why he doesn't get that many starts.
Arnold made some very good runs and a couple of tackles!! His dead ball delivery and crossing was as good as I've seen him manage.
FGR are a decent enough club-we got a warm welcome in the bar before the game. Unfortunately the over-zealous stewarding of the Town fan who appeared to have committed the heinous crime of blowing up a beach ball somewhat spoilt the atmosphere....


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Dull game and frankly the most we deserved was a point. We just didn't do enough.

In the 1st half Disley played very deep to try and stop balls into Parkins chest. This was fine but it meant we were a long way from The Shop & Zlatan and both of then looked off the pace. Too many players waited for the ball to come to them and invariably FGR got to the ball first. Very hesitant.

Could it have been in trying to stop Parkin we nullified our own threat?

Toto did make an error for the first goal but when it was pulled back Magnay flicked it against the shins of the on rushing midfielder and it rebounded into the bottom corner. I felt he should have attacked it and put his foot through it!

Equaliser was a bullet header.

Looked like a draw before Hannah's chances but once he failed with all 3 ( the first he made for himself with a good touch and turn) it fell to Disley to inexplicably play in Norwood for a calm finish. Not sure what the skipper was trying to do.

Arnold was a threat and some excellent crosses into the box 1st half and some junking runs 2nd. Mackreth gave us something when he came on but we didn't create much at all until Hannah's late chances.

I haven't listened to the post match interviews but I wasn't impressed with FGR nor GTFC.

I have seen the comments about the over zealous stewarding with the beach ball guy but after the game a town fan was approached by a steward for a 'chat', when he agreed he was taken back in the ground to be accused of misdemeanours and surrounded by 15 stewards. The gates were being shut behind him and only the appearance of a police officers saved him. These stewards are not the club stewards but it appears storm troopers brought in by agencies. Something needs to be done because more and more football fans are being targeted as cannon fodder. I know some fans can step out of line but there are ways of managing situations which don't include premeditated violence

What baffled me was the lack of understanding between town players.it was if they had met for the first time in the changing room

For those who weren't there, no need to read any further, the op has it spot on. First time I have seen town since their last away defeat. Then we were somewhat unlucky and looked decent, today was dire.

Two terrible goals to concede and the defence had one or two other dicey moments when it could have been worse. Yes Hannah missed his chances but we didn't create enough to win the game. Strikers are always going to miss some good chances at any level, you just need to create enough of them to merit the win. Thought a draw would be a more fitting result.
