Enjoyed that!  We look to have assembled a really good squad of quality players. Sous and Grant up front are real quality with the ball at their feet. Fox Clifton Mcatee in midfield will control the game for us. Solid at the back against forwards from a much higher league. We played some good football on the deck causing Rotherham a lot of problems.

Looking very good for our season back in non league. Can't think of any team that we should be scared of. We have real quality throughout our team. We even finished the game with four youth team players, and they all looked good.

What formation did we play Mimma? Interested to see what plans Hurst has with LJL and Taylor out.

Looked like 442. The two up front are not the biggest but could win the ball and keep it. Sousa will be a real crowd pleaser with his ball skills, so long as he gets protection from the refs

4-3-3 with Mcatee playing as a 10 rather than a 9.

Starting 11 looked solid , pretty fit and upto speed.
Grant probably the only one who looked a bit off the pace for my money.
Sousa looked dangerous, Macatee lively, Fox strong, calm combative.
The shape / set up left our left side a bit light so most of the play coming down the right. Sousa coming out on the losing side of a well worked 1 v 1.
Macca made some good saves to mark his testimonial ....
Second half we looked livelier with Macatee up top but then the constant subs ruined the game.
All in all good strong start but squad depth a worry for me looking at how many youth came on , Sears , Wright and Pearson aside we were weaker once changes made.
Scruffy goal while we were weakened blotted the Macca experience which was a shame.

Also a mention for the changes.

Pitch is immaculate,  no bobbling, ball run true. Sprinklers watering it at half time.

Real ale in the bar! Bateman on handpump, heaven.

The food on sale now looks appetising. From what I could see there is now a good selection of food. The pulled pork wraps are big with plenty of fillings.

The match day experience has moved up in my estimation

Isn’t it great to say ‘just back’?

I thought the fact that we had the better chances in the first hour said a lot. Sousa is obviously a crowd pleaser and I wouldn’t want to single anyone out as MoM but I’d say that Ben Fox is probably better than our level.

I doubt if that was unexpected, especially to PH but there’s not a lot he could have done today and I doubt that he sees the two casualties as the final answer either. Sounds like the approach play and defending were deserving of better results.
