Not knocking it at all, good win tonight and the Devon trip is great for team bonding and confidence but hard to judge us against these lesser teams   ( Cleethorpes Town, Grimsby Borough, Stamford, Bideford, Tavistock, even Boston UTD ).

Having said that we played well against higher opposition on Saturday.

We'll know better in a weeks time "where we are" when we play Blackburn who've won 8-0 at York tonight.

Could be a  tougher game at Boston than you think, I was told this weekend that they have signed 8 of the Mansfield players that were part of the squad in their promotion season.

Quoted from LH
This pre-season is getting very similar to the 15/16 one: Winning every game including against higher opposition, strikers scoring regularly. Although at 4-0 I suppose we could still draw this.


Shhhhhhhhhh!


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I have no idea how much our intrepid reporters get paid (if anything) but I was wondering if someone could teach them how to shield a mic from wind? Or how to find shelter away from the wind? or how to interview away from lawnmowers or traffic? not being rude, or ungrateful but sometimes (like the interview with RS today from the training ground at Bideford) was just noise for at least 30% of the time. Honestly I think it's common sense, isn't it? or maybe clearly not. I know this sounds sarcastic or mean but it's not meant to be.

You do wonder if they actually listen to the interviews before they are posted on the website

From last night then the players I can put names to and how they did..
Macca - constantly talking to his defence.
Collins - good communication and did well with whoever was next to him? (Clarke?)
Mitch - was getting frustrated in the warm up, couldn't control a thing. Once the game start he was steady but made two great late runs for his goals.
Berret - average, can see why people aren't overly fond with him playing regular
Dembele - in and out the game but when he has the ball at his feet, brilliant to watch.
Vernon - worked hard and won a fair few headers and got others involved.
Robertson - steady and made a couple of decent runs.
Yussuf - defenately has been working out, made some good runs and a couple of good crosses into the box.

Unknown -
Left winger 1st 60mins, proper old fashioned, knocked the ball past his opponent and run onto it 2 or 3 times and delivered a couple of good balls.
Big Centre back sub - assume he's a trialist, massive guy, won all his headers.
Fuzzy hair cm - seemed very casual and always looked to get protect the back four where ever the ball was, he made one run and did well and got a cross in.
