There may be reasons for omissions we’re not party to, but the line-up today appears to be disappointingly defensive. If three attackers can make the bench then why not play one of them with Cosgrave?  Surely we need a win not a potential draw?

Agreed…but where’s Blair?

I agree John. Don’t think TW will start with two strikers…but just the one as usual. That said, while I would disagree, I think he’s done a remarkable job overall this season and whatever happens I hope he stays. We need consistency after recent times. Like you, I know we have players more than capable of taking three points. Let’s hope we’re pleasantly surprised.

General Discussion / Tonight’s Game

I fear that we’ll be down to third tonight. It would be nice to think that we might grab a good win but my head is suggesting otherwise!  As ever, how we are set up is key. In my opinion we should go positive and take the game to them. A point, to be honest, would have been good earlier in the season but at this stage we need three. No pressure…

I agree with being more positive for the rest of the season. We gain nothing from going for one point away from home we must try for three each time. What’s to lose?  With some teams dropping points we could, just maybe, do ourselves a big favour. Fortune favours the brave!

Well…we’ve been basically playing catch-up but we then keep falling back. There’s only so many times you can do that and I think we’ve had our chance and it’s now gone after last night. If Fylde win their game in hand we’re five points behind with not so many games left. Even if we were to beat them at home the situation is still out of our hands. I, too, now worry more about our home games. We have some tough away fixtures but seem to make something happen these days whereas at home we’re not putting goals in. Other teams around us keep dropping points which has helped…all except Fylde!  I think it’s the play-offs for sure now and we may well struggle there unless the injury situation improves. Blair did OK which is good but we miss Hargreaves and Scott. Saturday isn’t going to be easy and nor even Farsley Celtic. They lost last night but otherwise have been doing much better of late. It’s a tough League. Ironically, had we started poorly and now be where we are I’m sure everyone would be pleased. It was the good start which raised everyone’s hopes…perhaps unfairly after last season?

Well…we now need two wins and for Blyth to do us a favour on Saturday (they are the form team) and Buxton to keep their own form going againt Fylde next Tuesday. Possible?

Interesting line-up. See we’ve got Blair in goal so anyone know anything more about Jones?  And who is Dixon-Hodge?

General Discussion / Banbury Away

Well…I did predict a 4-0 win for us but I’ll take the 1-0. Why, though, did Barrett take the penalty?  Anyway, with others losing it’s a good night for us.

Call me crazy but I have this feeling we’re going to get a surprise result at Banbury…something like a 4-0 win.

I’m disappointed with our last performance and frustration may be growing but if there was any truth to the suggestion that TW has been threatened then I’m even more disappointed. To potentially have major disruption at this point in the season would be crazy and counter productive. Let’s not implode totally. In the event that changes are necessary then they need to be made after the season has ended but, even though I’m less than happy currently, it’s only fair to give everyone the whole season before considering any action, whatever that may be.

We will make the play-offs but I am resigned to the fact that promotion would be a mistake. We would be straight down again. Even for the play-offs we may yet lose home advantage!  I have some faith despite my comments but  I feel we should now look to build for next season and accept what we are for now. To be honest, I didn’t expect too much at the start of the season and probably got a bit carried away by our early success but other teams have  moved forward while we have begun to struggle and the remainder of the season could become quite painful. I hope not…but under promise and over deliver. So I’m not anticipating much and if results did improve then it would be a nice bonus.
