When did we last play good football? Every manager we have had since Buckley Mark 2 (even Buckley Mark 3) has been accused of playing the wrong way? Have we ever had a good footballing team since the 1990s? Not sure I can recall one.

I don't remember seeing many games of 'good' football under Hurst. Plenty of wins, and plenty of away wins, which as an exile I was happy about. Relative to the level we fairly played 'good'.

One Hurst (actually Scott and Hurst) game that sticks in my mind was away to Cambridge in about 2012. Started off under the cosh and gradually asserted ourselves and 'earned the right to play football'. Which we did for about 60 minutes from a quarter to half time to the FT whistle.

I agree a lot of PH's time here was "functional & pragmatic" but with non league players you get non league football. There where some bright spots both home and away,

Buckley spoiled us i think. Never seen better football anywhere and it was brilliant in it's simplicity. Play the ball quickly and move into space. I think most footballers at this level now have nothing but speed, fitness and organisation. You don't see many truly skillful players now. They are all much of a muchness.
