Alfreton Tuesday night
« on: September 01, 2019, 10:40:20 AM »
Massive game coming up Tuesday.   Think the team, Manager and The Chairman need to see the fans out in force.   With the Football being played we need to lap it all up.  Teams like we have at the moment donít come along to often.

Mike Tuesday might be a good opportunity to get those wing backs forward to collect those overhit crosses. :mystic:

Probably the toughest game so far- not on the NameĒ of the club, but on current form.  Have to go for the throat, IMHO !  Attack best form of defence, then virtually everybody behind the ball when they get it.  Everyone is playing so well, but special mention for Clunan who continues to break up their moves, and often start ours.....

This game is at the end of a tough start to the season in terms of number of games played  and size of our squad.

Yes I think all squads are suffering a bit at this stage....the Darlo manager was ruing several significant absentees.
At least its  Tues eve where Lynn don't have to travel...that must be an advantage towards the end of such a busy run.
If they can just keep the form going for a couple more games...then it's a week before Gloucester at home and then snother week before the FA Cup.. so a chance to recover a bit then

Maybe  IC should have waited before shipping Hawks out on loan.

It will be and interesting evening with the top four playing each other. Guiseley entertain York City. Hope we have Adam Marriott back, not that we done too bad without him on Saturday but Alfreton will be a different proposition.

Yes I was thinking the same thing Mallard...Hawks gives something a bit different and Gash, Henderson and Marriott need a rest.....if we are lucky enough to get a rel easy home Fa Cup draw, Hawks and Stewart for Gash and Marriott may have been an option

Hope we are at our fluent best this evening. Think they will be a no nonsense, hard working, physical outfit. Just watched interview with their manager........"the whole world's against us but we'll stick together through it all", type of mentality.

Listening to their Manager talking about tonightís game,  got the impression he would be happy to come away with a point.  That might where we are now at home in the swing of things.  Teams are gonna turn up and be happy to leave with a point. Seems like a month in Football
Is a long time.

Maybe, but by all accounts he had acquired some timber and has lost his focus. That's understandable but perhaps suggests a lack of hunger and fight. He can be brilliant but I can't see which players in the current squad you could put him ahead of.

If Hawks was a little bit Ďoff ití. Iím sure IC and his man management skills would have little hesitation in letting him know he needed to up his game.   Was just suggesting with the frantic start to the season it might have been better to keep all hands on deck in case of injuries etc.  Saturday for example we were missing Smith n Marriott so named Bastock on the bench.

By the by Hawks got the winner for Dereham on Saturday.

Yes and there needs to be some credible forward back up to Gash and Marriott. We are getting to the time when most teams are close to playing on empty...that's when injuries occur, as we are already starting to see. After Alfreton comes Spennymoor, then Gloucester at home...then Fa Cup and Trophy appear on the horizon....for the early rounds I would use all the squad....so say Stewart and Hawkins for Gash and Marriott and save the big guns for the likes of York and Chester...if they are in the squad, then they should be good enough and should be used

Maybe Hawks going out on loan will free up a bit of cash adding to the extra revenue coming through the gate (over the 750/800 min)  might mean an understudy for Gash to come in.  I remember during ICís first season. Gash was given plenty of rest time at the end of games when the likes of Hilliard or Siddons were used to protect him.
