We look like the real deal which tells me we have the right players already . Sharp , energetic, snapping into tackles , organisation and more importantly a plan we can all under stand . I bet the players are loving it . Conteh mom for me but could of been Glennon and Mularky and Rose

It's amazing isn't it? Not long ago all of the players you mention apart from Rose were getting slagged off regularly on here.

We look like a football team again! Admittedly, they, as you would, made changes and cut down the space that Hunt and Conteh had in the first half but we were still pretty comfortable.

No weak links, all the starters had good games but I agree with the sponsor and go with Glennon as MoM.

Classic game of two halves, with us showing our attacking chops first half and our defensive side the second, and despite Crewe having the vast majority of the ball in the second half, they didn't create a lot. the goal they did score was a good cross and a class finish, so no criticism of the defence there. Credit to Crewe, as they stuck to their way of playing the whole game, even when 2 down and didn't panic at all. They just couldn't break us down.


The game was won first half and for once we followed up our opener with a second, which gave us something to defend, and a bit of belief.

We were very good in the first half, brave on the ball, taking risks in the right areas and you can see what we are trying to do. Isn't quite fully there yet, but we can only improve with time.

Glennon was absolutely superb all game, but especially first half when he was our best attacking player. All the crosses and all the corners were coming from his side and he got 2 assists, which is why teams were watching him last season, and will be again if he carries on in that form. He's back to the player we know he can be. The rest were pretty good too, and no one had a bad game.

That's 5 league games without a defeat now taking 9 points and moving in the right direction, including beating two sides in the play off spots.

Really good performance today, in both attack and defence.

Thoroughly enjoyed that, even when they scored we never panicked and kept our shape, nobody played badly and the result was fully deserved, MOM could’ve gone to Rose, Mullarkey, Hunt or Eisa, but Glennon gets it for me, did everything but score.

If Crewe had beaten us today they would have gone second. Artell mentioned they're top scorers in the football league. Just adds to the positivity of today's performance. Championship in five years then?

Glennon did have a great game, agreed, but he was wrong side of the player who scored their goal.

Also special mention to Cartwright in goal. He was getting a lot of stick but he's stood up to it all and is now looking very competent. Made one really good save, and the catch on the line under pressure was a brilliant piece of keeping.
