What a difference in 7 days...4-5-1 slant on the formation today...gave the back line and midfield much more time on the ball....dominated first 45 mins...all to feet and patient in possession and pressed well out of possession.
Goal well deserved after a spell of good pressure and well worked and cracking strike from Cook.
Second half largely ruined by Rose's extremely harsh..neigh ridiculous sending off....
Credit to Jolly..made the sub around the right time and Vernam repaid the faith, first winning the ball in the corner channel and then mugging the keeper off at the near post.
Solid rear guard action second half with a strong first 45.
Well deserved cracking away result. UTM

So did the players follow Jolley's instructions today, seemed to play more football.

Opposition were poorer for one thing but they just had more options around the ball...at times quite casually playing out from the back whilst under pressure.

All put a good shift in especially after Rose's sending off.

Thought Maccs best player was the goose.

Loved Vernam’s reaction after he settled the game!

Having seen Rose challenge again, I think it was the correct decision.

Dixon was top draw today
Welsh is too good for us
Cook had a great game, his touch and movement was causing them problems all game and deserved his goal.

Defence solid

Big shout to macca who made 2 huge saves at 1-0 in the second half

Good performance all round.
Well done to Jolley for not making huge changes in the 11, 1 change and a change of formation and it worked.

Reports of the terminal decline of GTFC are greatly exaggerated.
Absolutely magnificent rearguard action today once Rose departed. Dixon excellent. Collins more than atoned for last week's abberation putting his body on the line several times to great effect.
Vernam showed a never-say-die attitude to win what looked like a lost cause in the corner. Not quite sure how he managed to squeeze the ball in at the near post but his reaction was well worth a view.
Some good movement first half where we could justifiably have been out of sight. Cook's strike from all of 30 yards was superb.


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

Cracking battling win. I thought Hessenthaler and his energy made a real difference, Him and Welsh look extremely good signings and gel well with Rose in the centre. Still feel we're missing a trick not playing Vernam but I guess there's still 44 games to go and we won anyway. Davis and Whitmore looked more composed today and Dixon had a decent game at left back. Jordan Cook looked sharper, worked extremely hard and deserved to score such wonderful goal. Still one or two concerns, but I'm not going to split hairs after such a hard fought victory..

With Vernam, RHJ, Famewo not making the starting line up and fingers crossed two or three loans to come in, hopefully this will be the confidence boosting win to kickstart a season of hope and progression..

Could have been out of sight by half time. We played some really good football which was topped off by a cracking goal. Second half was a rear guard action due to the red. At the time it looked like a fair challenge, but having seen the replay, I can see why it's given. From then on, we defended admirably, and the only way they were going to score was by lumping it into the box, but both collins and Whitmore dealt with it well.

I do find it amusing the amount of people around me who were shouting at players to close down high up the pitch when we were down to 10 men, and calling players lazy. It's a good job they're not managers.

Every player played well today, but a few shout outs. Dixon was solid today, and my motm. Woolford was impossible to tackle at times, with the ball stuck to his feet, although he looked tired second half. Whitmore and hessenthaler also impressed me. Overal, a great day.
