Re: Season Over?

Even yesterday morning I had no expectation at all of reaching the play-offs. It was only as half-time neared, and I realised it would need a two-goal swing in either game to deprive Us, that the excitement and nerves kicked in. Well done to KR and the players. And what a great performance to cap it...

Re: Plymouth Hoe but we’re not weeds

They're just teasing us now! I have a horrible feeling that other teams will slip up but we'll fail to capitalise. I very much hope to be proved wrong. All we can do is win our games and see what transpires...

Re: Handed it to them

As I said on the other thread, I think the handball was instinctive, so I don't blame Henry too much. But yes, no complaints over the punishment. Does anyone remember a game at the Manor late 80s/early 90s (I think against Charlton), when an opposition player tried to save a goal with his hands at t...

Re: Season Over?

Well the fat lady is clearing her throat now. Still not completely impossible, but too many teams are more handily placed than Us I think. But what might have been! When Ruffels scored I really started to believe. And then it all went wrong. I can't say I blame James Henry - his handball looked poin...

Re: Fishy Gills

Unbelievable stuff. I thought we started ok against a 'difficult' opposition, and for the first half hour it looked like being a tight game with one goal likely to settle it. But once we conceded out heads went, we went into our shells and got very sloppy. The second goal became inevitable, as was t...

Re: Cutting Crewe

I thought Sykes had a great game. Yes, he should have scored (could have taken an extra touch I think), but few of our players would have had the footwork to make that chance in the first place - and again for the penalty. Lee has slightly disappointed me overall - there's clearly a very good player...

Re: Season Over?

Let's face it, there have only been a handful of games this season where we've looked properly good for a whole match. If we manage to get our noses ahead against a poor team we can go on and dominate them. But we seem to lack belief at the start of games, and our play is too laboured and predictabl...

The Imp-ortance of being positive

That was more like it. After a horror start, where Lincoln showed Us how to play out calmly from the back and have the ball in the back of the net within about 10 seconds, we played pretty well. I'd still like us to be a bit more instinctive going forwards - Stevens' booking came from Shodipo turnin...

Re: Where are they now?

Isaac Buckley Rickets (12 appearances on loan from Man City in the 2017-18 season) is playing for a fan TV team run by 'a prominent Man Utd YouTube personality'(!) in the 14th tier:

Re: Cobblers

Yes we looked better when CamBran sat deeper, but all he did then was play long balls on to the heads of Northampton defenders, rather than back to a central defender as Gorrin does. It's hardly playing to our strengths. I also thought it reminded me of the Conference days, but with more free-kicks....

Cobblers

Anyone still feeling confident after our last two performances? Blackpool were a good team, as evidenced by their result against Posh yesterday. But last night was just a horrible game of football to watch. Where has our midfield gone? It didn't matter which forwards were on the pitch, we just could...

Re: Indonesians taking control.

What is not clear (apart from everything) is who is seeking to take control from whom. Is Thohir allowed back on the board now, or does his political position in Indonesia still prevent that? Or is it Bakrie that wants to increase his interest? And will the Empire Asia people still be involved, or i...

Re: Shaking the ketchup bottle

It's often said that a striker just needs a goal to go in off his arse to get going again, and while that didn't quite happen last night, there was some definite good fortune in both of Taylor's goals yesterday. For the rest of the game, the ketchup bottle remained half shaken really, as some really...

Re: Them 1 - 2 Us

Hugely important result. But I felt more relief than exhilaration at the final whistle - twice it looked like the game might go the way of the home fixture (throwing away total first half domination), but we held on for a now customary 2-1 win at the C*unty Gr*und. Who'd have thought we'd ever say t...

Re: Suffolking improvement?

Thought it might be worth dragging up this thread for today’s return match at Portman Road, to see how far we’ve come in the interim. The matches were startlingly similar, albeit today’s more nerve-racking than snooze-inducing. What a terrible football match though! Ipswich constantly giving Us the ...
