Barrett is obviously a very talented player and scored a corker at Peterborough. I am not sure how far he is from full fitness but I think he has got some way to be there - I just get the feeling he does unbalance the side sometimes and because he is not fully fit loses the ball in vulnerable positions and put pressure back on the defence.

Josh Barrett wasnít fit when he first came to the club, that was ages ago, how long does it take if you are committed. He does have talent, he can also be selfish at times and go for glory, rather than pass. I hope he gets fully fit, because we havenít seen how good he is when he is.
See a few people saying it was a great result last night, well a win is a win and I will take it, however it comes. Losing a two goal advantage and scoring a last minute winner is probably more lucky than great. The guy that does the pre and post match reviews on YouTube said it was absolutely brilliant (he loves the word absolutely), and he would have said the same after the Chester game had Barrett scored late on, but he was far from happy at the draw.
Anyway, 3 more points last night and another 3 goals too. We struggled to score last season, so itís good that we have 3 forwards who all look capable. I have a feeling that Ben Stephens will be the top scorer.
Well done to all the team last night for battling to the very end and getting all 3 points.

It's now 5 goals conceded in the last 2 second half's.

Thats 5 goals scored against us in 90 minutes.

Thankfully, this season we are more than capable of putting the goals in at the other end.
Each day, there are less leaves on the tree.

Interesting point.   Is that down to stamina in the back line.?  Always think Coulson seems to be blowing through his ass 2/3rds through the game.  Or maybe when we get ahead we switch off and donít really put the foot down on the pedal.  Or maybe with us playing with a flat back 4 it gives us more attacking options but also gives the opposition a sniff
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

Maybe when they are losing,  the pesky opposition try to up their game?  :watching:

Now that could well be Jesus.  If the opposition Manager gets into his players at the break.  However in the Linnets dressing room the Management team will be getting into our players and telling them what to expect.

Ok itís only happened in the last two games, so nothing to worry about. Put it down to coincidence

Agree, itís just coincidence. As for conceding 5 goals in 90 minutes, if you look at it that way, then we also scored 5 goals in 90 minutes.
Both, lasts night game and away at Peterborough could have ended in draws, with just 2 points, two late winners however has given us 6. Maybe a little bit of good fortune, but our fitness being full time should help too.
