Oh dear !
Really does seem to be a chasm between top 9/10 and the bottom 6/7.
Lynn's defence seemingly has no answer to the top group, even after a quarter of the season.
Altho not doing much better in terms of points, the other 3 that came up with Lynn do seem much tighter at the back.

People say "as long as we survive" this season but..

we should strive to be the best we can and without putting targets or unnecessary pressure on anyone, I can see the defensive frailties gradually being sorted and Lynn ending up doing a lot, lot better than just surviving.

A bit of a reality check needed though, we are 14th in the conference with one of the lowest budgets in our first season. I think IC and the coaching staff have got it more than right.  :banghead;

We can finish higher than 14th tho

Think we are good for at least a point tonight.   After Saturday the defence needs to be back on it.  We have goals in the side, so down to the defensive 6 to do their job.

If the defence  IS on it, we will win

I very much doubt Gashy will be in the squad for Bromley, I would believe he would need to build up some sort of match sharpness before taking anyone's place in the squad, which he didnt have to do at Portsmouth because of the 7 sub allowance, maybe through the ressies.

With respect, not sure how you build up match sharpness, without playing matches, I will be very surprised if he's not on the bench...... personally don't see the Ressies as an option

Gash will def be on the bench and will play for the last 10-20.

We weren't opening the debate again Mall in who should be behind the sticks......just that there is a need to get the defending from set pieces sorted...that requires the keeper and defence to be close knit and on the same page.
To use an oft used word from IC, we have a different type of transition going on.....defence getting used to keeper and vice versa. Effectively a full time keeper with a part time defence and different expectations as to who should be doing what.

Agreed Dilly...I think that's the thing...Alex had grown as a keeper, while those defending in front were growing.
Alex got to know their weaknesses and they his.
He often sprinted out to cover the lack of pace in front of him.....he often came for crosses, appreciative of the lack of height.

Mair is presumably being coached to play with the defences at Norwich and not with the Lynn line up, for at least some of the week.

Yes agreed, Mair a great shot stopper but can't rely on the defence to clear balls which he could and should come for....same applies sometimes to rushing out of the box when we have been done for pace.
He has to learn that he has to take up the slack when he has defenders in front of him who are doing their utmost but when it comes down to it are still part timers against full time pros.

Re Pboro Dilly, the major diff was that Pboro were very poor on the day and Portsmouth right on it.

A spanking....but not humiliation.
A couple of crackers from Pompey...but 2 poor goals conceded from....yep you guessed it, corners.
The first one really was a terrible time to concede.
Much higher class opposition, but similar lessons, it seemed to me.

Let's hope for a reaction ! :laughcry:

I will take a more conservative approach and suggest we don't flood forward at all in this game, unless we are one behind with five minutes remaining.
Man for man they are obviously faster, fitter and stronger, so we can't hope to flood forward and back at the same rate as them cos we would be flat on our backs knackered after half an hour.
Similar approach to Vale required, using the pace of Loza, Power and King to link up in small number forays when we can without leaving ourselves  badly outnumbered in midfield or badly exposed at the back.

BJ really is a clown....what has changed so dramatically now to suddenly allow 2,500 thru the Walks turnstiles ?

Is it any wonder, so many support the conspiracy theories when the government advice is so up and down ?!

Think much depends on whether Jarv can do another 90 so soon. If not, IC could play Lupano, and the Double big Mac option (like that Mall, in keeping with this year's McDonalds festive offering). McFadden sounds like he could also play the Jarv role if necessary. Think I would leave Fries to warm the bench.

If Jarv is good to go then I suspect it will be McAuley and McFadden.....but we shouldn't under estimate Dover......they will be tough opponents and if Lynn aren't fully at it, it will be "null points".
