Buxton at home.
« on: February 28, 2023, 07:40:59 PM »
Disappointed that we have an extra defender instead of Stevens and/or Ponticelli in a home fixture that realistically we must win.  Dilly hopes we’re too good anyway, but can’t understand that selection.

unusual Dilly for you to complain about team selection. Perhaps we are going 3-5-2?

A goalkeeper from Maldon and Tiptree.

Safety-first selections have cost us too many points this season.  Then putting on an attacker while taking off another doesn’t increase the scoring likelihood - and to do it in the 90th minute in a home game against lower opposition gave him no chance.  Disappointed, actually mystified….

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?

Feel sorry for Buxton fans. Watching a team that know the dark arts.

Bradford, Chester, Telford, Gloucester and now Buxton. In my view, with the exception of Chester, who were excellent and where we did not get the run of the ball, we have either been flattered by the results and / or at times have been second best, particularly in the first half of these home games. Why?

Have we recently become more effective playing away than at home? Results might suggest so.

Undoubtedly injuries have exposed a lack of.squad quality rather than quantity. Scott and Hargreaves being key to our earlier performances and hugely missed. The former bringing pace and goals down the left and the latter energising midfield, alongside Clunan and Widdrington.

Last night i thought that we also really missed Denton.

More generally and showing my age here. Many modern footballers with their time wasting and theatrical diving are undermining what used to be 'the beautiful game'. I yearn for the days before physio's with their magic potions and soft hands, when an 'injured' player would be attended usually by a bloke with a bucket of freezing cold water and a sponge. When more often than not treatment would be given off the pitch rather than on and this before a multitude of substitutes were avilable!

Percy Hooper's magic sponge! Worked everytime, but especially during the winter months.

In fact it was so magic, players were often seen to recover from a knock and run off in the opposite direction, before Percy could reach them!

I'd have only been about age 7 or 8 at the time, but its one of my memory's from the Football Club. I remember Percy getting cheered when he ran on to the pitch, bag in hand.

Was that in the days when a good winger could deliver the ball  to the Centre Forward with the laces facing away from his head ?  :laughcry:
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what it’s all about ?

I was there! Down memory lane! Percy's son Terry also played for the linnets?

Ronnie Bacon and Dave Partridge could probably have done exactly that!
