Despite being 25 points ahead of them, our home form (37 points from 22 games) is identical to Lincoln City. Why?

To defensive at home and that leads to a lack of atmosphere that the away teams latch onto.

Go hell for leather at home, and teams would fear coming here. As it is they don't, they walk all over the park and do what they want, which invariably means they take either 3 points or 1 point home most of the time.


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.

Nice to see you back....

Because we are 25 points ahead of them our away form is 25 points better than theirs.

This fact comes to you by courtesy of #statingthebleedingobvious

I guess what I'm trying to say is whilst our home form is more than a tad disappointing and personally I much prefer away games we still have the points on the board. It is only relevant in the context of how much home gates may well have been affected by the poor home form. Not too sure there is much evidence of that


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

Thanks for that. Been on holiday, glad you missed me.

I did ask why, not state the bleeding obvious!

The reason we are better away is because teams attack us and we play better against teams that do that,

At home a lot of teams come for a point or if they do score first they try and hang on to the 3 points,

Most of the time they have managed that because we do not know how to break them down,

We do not have wingers that can beat a man and put the ball on the head or feet of a goal scorer,

Even if we did have those wingers we do not have a goal scorer who can put those chances away.

I hope we win the away leg in the play offs then the team will have to attack us at Blundell Park,

If we lose the away leg then I can not see us getting to Wembley,

However if we do manage to get to Wembley it will be 50/50 whoever we play,

As long as they do not score first and shut up shop.

Of course, it hasn't helped that we have conceded a goal from practically the opposition's first chance in plenty of home games this season! We're not great at breaking teams down when they sit back so falling behind at home in this manner has really cost us. Frustrating that we've conceded lots of goals at BP without the opposition having to work particularly hard for them at all.

I think the strikers have taken a lot of stick this season when really it's the lack of support from midfield that has cost us , we seem so slow to break and get a final ball into the box

Mostly from distance and all of those from a very similar spot.
