General Discussion / Ebbsfleet v King's Lynn Town - FA Trophy
« on: December 17, 2019, 03:12:46 PM »
Read today that Ebbsfleet have a player on loan from AFC Bournemouth, Tyler Cordner who apparently made an impact as Ebbsfleet progressed to the FA Trophy second round after a 2-0 win away at Enfield.

From Ebbs website Tyler Cordner (21) An assured loan signing from AFC Bournemouth on a six-month deal, the 21-year-old was awarded his first professional contract by the Premier League club in 2017 and turned in a string of impressive performances on loan with Havant & Waterlooville last season. Formerly with Portsmouth before going on to play for Bournemouthís U21s, the highly rated Southampton-born central defenderís maturity belies his age. He had a number of EFL clubs scouting him and having been on the Fleetís radar all summer, he joined his former Cherries colleague Jordan Holmes at the Fleet in late August 2019.

Also other players have had League football experience; No9 Gozie Ugwu (Chesterfield, Yeovil, Plymouth and Shrewsbury) and 8goals this season - No11 Myles Weston (Wycombe, Brentford, Notts C and Gillingham 7goals - No12 Josh Umerah (Charlton, Kilmarnock and Wycombe) 4goals and another Central Defender No5 Ayo Obileye (Dag & Red, Sheffield Wed and Charlton) 3goals.

Obviously a league higher than Lynn and should be more experienced. But the are beatable as they are not having the best season.

Just watched the Highlights and what a performance - wish I could have been there instead of in Devon (but family comes first).

The lads were certainly not over-awed. I take it that Michael Gash's "goal" was offside? Sam Kelly showed composure in taking his goal. Aaron Jones' Free Kick looked as if there was a slight deflection off the wall and the defender held his hands to his head as if it was his fault - well struck and goalie was relying on his wall too much.

However, their goalie made several great saves from Rory and Adam. Was Pedro fouled for their 2nd goal?

Adam Marriott might have had 4goals on a normal day at the office for him. I'm sure IC had penalty practice on the agenda during training and it certainly paid off.

Maybe the "moaners" should do a bit of fund-raising towards a ROOF.  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Chris Henderson hassles and hustles and is a breaker up of play who then storms off with the ball and turns defence into attack. Well placed to toe-poke home the loose ball for a poacher's goal - 1 - 0. Hendo found himself in the box on a run but thought the goalie was covering too wel on a tight angle a made very unselfish pass to Michael Gash to score a long awaited goal - 2 - 0. Nathan Fox was my MoM as he kept tabs on No10 and in the thick of all the action. Jordan Richards was a bit quiet by his usual standards but still effective, more as a play maker than defensive. Agree that Gash and Adam Marriott (Player of the Month) were in offside positions waiting for the ball far too often in the first half and Ian Culverhouse (Manager of the Month) must have talked about it at HT.

Rory McAuley, Ross Barrows and Sonny Carey, Nathan Fox and Aaron Jones held the defence fairly well but ball passing between them in the first half led to too many interceptions due to under-hit balls, sticky ground at the Seven Sisters end and Blyth pressing the defence high up the pitch - we were lucky to get away without conceding at least twice. Blyth were pretty ineffective first half but were a changed team after HT. Much better in attack as they chased a 2 - 0 lead. 

The introduction of Ryan Hawkins brought pace and spark up front and he had several attempts on goal, one of which fell kindly to Adam Marriott who slotted home - 3 - 0. Alfie Payne also came on for Michael Clunan late in 2nd half (resting or tactical?).

Good result and improved GD and with York held 0 - 0 at Kettering and Chester losing it was a "Good Day at the Office".

Still worrying that Ryan Fryatt is still not fit, Tom Ward with 2weeks off with a concussion issue, Sam Kelly with a slight groin strain. Chris Smith still not fit with arm injury. Nathan Stewart still at Leiston on loan for a month from 15 November  and Harry Limb at Boston Town(?).

General Discussion / King's Lynn v Blyth Spartans on Saturday 7th December

Lynn are flying high but must swoop low down against Blyth who are flapping away just above the bottom of the table.

We all know that such matches often have a twist in the tail as feathers fly and how the mighty can fall and be brought to the ground.

Looking forward to a battle royal and Lynn improving their Goal Difference with a win and a clean sheet. 3 - 0 and 1000+.

Gateshead's solid defence and some dubious decisions by the Refereee really broke up sequences of play. I have never seen so many "drop-ball" situations in a game.

Lino's were obviously there to follow the ref's throw-in indications and flag as many off-sides as possible whilst being blind to any shenanigans going on, especially the manhandling of Gash and anyone else in a tight spot with the ball - only seen so many "holds" and "throws" in a wrestling ring  :laughcry:

Gateshead's No9 was a handful all afternoon. Hard tackling and going for the ball was the order of the day by both sides - it certainly was a man's game and not for  "boys".

Pedro was again at his best, saving Lynn several times from point blank range. Jordan Richards had a good game and doesn't pull back from anything - he was hacked down near the sideline and his "attacker" was lucky to see  :yellow card: rather than a straight  :red card:. Chris Henderson had his usual hard running, tackle anything and attacking play and was again subbed - some comment that it's always Hendo that gives way for fresh legs, I wonder he has any legs left after 60-70mins  :worship:.

Very impressed with Ross Barrows who has really settled into his role alongside Tom Ward and Rory McAuley. Nathan Fox was in the thick of it making some timely tackles but less effective up the wing than normal. We played one of our "narrow" games rather than wide wing play.

It took a cool finish by Adam Marriott to settle things and both teams "had it in the net" but both ruled out by a pretty awful Referee whose whistle was the centre-piece of the afternoon.

Norwich are Away at Everton so we may pick up some non-travelling fans who might like to see a big(ish) club play Hereford  :laughcry: :laughcry:

The "Make-Up" of the Back Line might well depend on what IC has learnt about Hereford's capabilities of attacking tactics - are they a narrow or wide playing team, stronger on the right or left wing etc.

Who will line up at the Back?        Street - Jones, Barrows, McAuley with Hawkins, Jarvis, Clunan, Richards, Fox and then Henderson, Gash and Marriott. Kelly, Carey, Stewart as preferred Subs getting a decent game time of 30, 20 and 15mins in that order.

Do Lynn try for a strong run in the FA Trophy (make some money in the process) and consolidate a Top 7 spot or throw everything at a tilt at Top Spot?

The game is not a high interest event albeit FA Trophy.

If Hereford were "High Flying" in the League and Lynn were in the mix as well there would be more at stake and a higher Away following.

Bevan Asher brilliant video, thanks. What a game. Both sides going hammer and tongs with some fantastic footwork by all the players. What a build up to Adam Marriott's goal! Pure joy to watch the slick passing and cool control against a very good team. Alex Street made some great saves - thanks Pedro. Chris Henderson works his socks off and you can see why he gets subbed a lot as he must be knackered.
