I'm not sure they did, but at least Towler could pick a pass between the lines. Our early season results flattered us because of the opposition. Defending was still woeful at Maidenhead, Bromley, Wealdstone and Altrincham when we were top..

Having someone like Waterfall affects the whole DNA of any side, you either go one way like Lincoln did which was very direct or you go the other. Anything else is a compromise if you're trying to get promoted. Not popular but it's whathink. Football's gone way beyond one stopper one quick partner, one big target man, one nippy partner, etc etc

Anyway, don't post much nowadays.. I've said my bit for a while..

what total nonsense

Wow, that's rose tinted glasses at its worst. To think this squad is anything near that of the Lincoln squad that steamrollered the league is crazy. Just because Taylor is a better footballer than Rhead doesn't mean he wasn't incredibly effective at this level.

Spokes isn't good enough, end of.  Khouri realistically isn't either but I think he has maybe suffered from not having a dedicated position as such.
Hunt is a very decent player and gets the ball moving through the different thirds of the pitch very quickly.

If he doesn't return then again, like Towler, wish him all the best.  


Last season Spokes showed one or two sparks.  Also, last season Waterfall was crap.  This season, he's playing well.

Quoted from Bigdog


He seems to have crushed the confidence and put doubts into what looked like a cohesive and happy squad. Very early in the bad run,he started moaning about one or two players not performing and then at least six games before the transfer window began threatening the players with change very publicly. Now I'm no psychologist but I don't think outbursts like that, softly spoken or not, helped with squad confidence. Maybe a bit more of "I've got belief in my players" or "we've got a talented bunch here", might have got better desired effects than digging them out in public. It was like, "my tactics are perfect" it's the players who aren't good enough to carry them out" kind of thing. Never goes down well with pro-football squads. The bizarre dropping of Towler and Hunt at times can't have gone down well either internally and it obviously affected both players. I thought Bapaga was growing into the season and then he disappeared without a trace.

I mean, look what we've been left with at the moment, a shambles of a squad with probably four, five or six with the ability to compete at the top end of Division Five. Massive transfer window for Hurst coming up.. and for the owners too imho. I said ten games in we were in a flattering position and I've gone from giving PH time to now giving him until the end of February to turn this around or else he doesn't deserve to be the one to build our club's playing side off the pitch. His record over the past three or four seasons speaks for itself. He's no longer holding a winning formula on his cv..


Totally agree BigDog.  I can't see how a team that was firing on all cylinders can just lose it.  The form at the start of the season wasn't a fluke, we had panache.  We had the best goal difference in the league with a myriad (i can't remember the number) scorers.   The loss of McAtee was a blow but I don't believe it could have made that much difference.  The incentive to play well is to win as a team but also get picked for the next week.  As you mentioned, players got dropped and none of us could understand why.   PH can be a bit dour.  Remember JT in an interview saying that was a good goal.  PH chuckled and said it was decent.  OK, we don't have to go all American and say that it was the best goal ever but at least give credit where credit is due.

Good point, our main problem is scoring goals.  Early season when we conceded I generally felt we could get back in the game, but now it’s back to last seasons feeling that if we go 1-0 down that’s game over  


That's why MD's goal against Halifax was so pleasing. I felt that we might have turned the corner there.

Rhead and Taylor are two completely different players but aside from Rhead that Lincoln team ran harder than anyone else and put at least 30 crosses into the box every game. Habergham in particular was excellent for them as an attacking left back and so was Alex Woodyard in the centre of midfield. Whilst Elliott Whitehouse had tons of energy he was mainly a substitute.

3 very effective centre halves to choose from in Waterfall, Raggett and Howe. They also had 4 very good wingers to choose from in Harry Anderson, Josh Ginnelly, Nathan Arnold and Terry Hawkridge.

That Lincoln squad was certainly better than what we currently have.
