Quoted from OllieGTFC
If we get through from Macclesfield  hopefully we get Tottenham away for there new ground or united


Went last week for game v Inter Milan and it is pretty unbelievable and viewing is absolutely fantastic. As an aside boarded train at Eltham Lock and was quickly joined by three guys one of whom was wearing a town shirt. Had great chat with them on train and outside the ground when I bumped into them again. The town shirt wearer was from Kirton Lindsey and has a passion for visiting as many football grounds as possible and pretty sure he told me he was approaching 160 different ones.

Would love to go back with Town in the two legged semi-final 😩😄😄😄

Thought we struggled with the system first half , allowed Donny too much space out wide and didn't retain the ball well enough. Settled into it and grew in confidence.

Great counter attack goal, Cook ( who played very well in the centre ) broke up play and went directly forward....with options either side he exchanged passes with Ogbu and finished smartly, midway in our half to back of the net in seconds, fantastic goal.
Vernam went close not long after forcing a good save out of their keeper, just had Macca had made a wonder save moments before that.

Second half it looked like Jolley had got a quick coaching session in at half time as the shape worked smarter to close the width out and as a result Donny looked blunt and were forced backwards and sideways before ultimately giving up posession, all the side started to look at ease with the shape and their roles within it.
Various changes in personnel and positions didnt shake the solidity and apart from a few nervy moments at the death Donny hardly troubled us in the second half.

Given it was a team of arguably fringe/ squad players its clear the 4-3-3 system is being drilled into all and that all the players are willing to graft for each other.  Wright, Ogbu, Cook, Pollock looked first team ready...Gibson looked a little shakey at first with the ball but settled into it , Vernam was Vernam, bright spots and anonymous spots.

Jolley has definately got this group focussed and working hard.  Good to see.  UTM

Quoted from promotion plaice

These new floodlights are impressive, what a difference.


To be honest I wasn't that impressed. Yes they were brighter but they didn't look to have been set up right. From the back of the Youngs stand the areas round the corner flags looked a strange yellow colour. The lights don't appear to have the same colour temperature.

The chap in the Town shirt was Graham Precious ex Mariners Trust board member and a top bloke..


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

Quoted from The Old Codger


Gibson can play centre back, Hewitt can play midfield so can Cook and Hendrie. I’m guessing three CBS, Gibson, Pollock and Davis, Ring and Wright as wide midfielders, Hendrie and Hewitt central with Vernam, Ogbu and Cook up front in a 3-4-3 but pleased I haven’t paid 22 quid for the privilege


This is all about the squad and every player tonight is capable of and would be expected to figure in the matchday squad/team at some point. The only way they can demonstrate what they can do is under match conditions and that is also the only way they can be " match fit ".
