Quoted from aldi_01


Not at all, Swin can keep that title but I’m also realistic and first half was shocking. As my point stated, thankfully there are several teams who are as bad as us. Perhaps we can be the team to improve whilst they all linger and languish down here.

I’ve no doubt performances will improve and some players will raise their game but surely the point is the game is about opinions. I had a car full, I know friends who had car fulls and their views all differ. I personally see no point in Ogbu but others do, so each to their own. For what it’s worth, I’d have dropped Waterfall weeks ago, I thought defensively we looked more solid with Pollock in there and Whitehouse added something when he came on.


And here is my opinion. Just try and have a day off from trying to get off being the voice of reason will you. "Woeful" it certainly wasn't. Technically good - of course not! But it was a very young team throwing everything at the cause which should be at least applauded!

'Heroic' I'd say instead of woeful, and as for all the if this and if that's, you could say that for any game -the fact is they got it over the line.

Quoted from forza ivano
Wonder if the difference in views on Ogbu was because he was playing at the far end from us and may have looked better on tv. Should also add that times we played some very cool, composed, skilful football through the midfield, whilst the defence seemed very well organised and mopped up nearly everything .
Don't think Holloway will be terribly impressed with some of the crossing and dead ball delivery which was very wasteful.


Ogbu hardly lost the ball....service to him was of better quality....actual passes to his feet or delicate chips in to his chest height all help though which is something any of the strikers have had little of.....he showed what a target man should be,  hold the ball wait for support and lay it off.......his upper body strength is amazing....due to the circumstances of yesterday we didn't really see the other side of his game were he can  run at the opposition with the ball at his feet
Use him right and he is a player....smash high balls in his general direction and he will look useless.

2020 is going to be a very good year .


Youve got good vision



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

For  any team at any level, to go away from home and play with 10 men for 80 mins AND come away with 3 pts. That is a sterling effort to be applauded, how can you criticise ????

Quoted from Rodley Mariner
Was a brilliant day. I thought Ogbu did a difficult job very well but that is a seriously tough job so wasn't surprised he went for fresh legs early. I thought Rose made them nervy at the back because of his pace without doing that much. They just seemed more jittery after he came on. Top class winner with the subtle dummy from Rose, a great cross and thought he did really well to keep that volley down.

Reticent to pick a motm as it was a proper team performance but thought Clifton was superb. Think Mattie Pollock might put a real claim on a starting place in the next 3 games as well.


🤔 Was so subtle I thought Rose just complety failed to control the ball

In the 1970s it was almost a given in Italian football that someone would be sent off so teams would spend time training how to play with and against 10 or 9 men. This even applied to the national team and I think they do/did the same thing in countries like Argentina. Winning with 10 is not unusual for them. It seems to be something we sporting Brits always have found more difficult.

You know what you’re getting with Ogbu and he doesn’t really change his game. He’s never, ever going to chase a long ball and he’s not going to outpace a centre half over 20, 30 yards and the other players know this, so rather than knocking it over the top yesterday they tended to either be more accurate with the passing or were more patient and held on to it. Hanson should be encouraged to do this more often rather than offering an option by chasing lost causes into the corners - it’ll help bring the play further up the pitch and save his legs.
