So well organised that we let in last minute goals against Burton, Forest Green & Barnet?
yes well organised.. That is how we have progressed as far as we have.. I know that this maybe controversial but we did not progress up and eventually win the Rymans by having the best players, it was just we had a manager who knew how to use them efficiently.
Our problems this year are 2 fold .
1) Last 10 minutes of games. We inevitably run out of steam , if you look at the scores in all of our games after 80 minutes we would be a comfortable mid table team. However if you look at how we perform in the last 10 minutes we have one of the worst records.
2) We struggle to break teams down at Stonebridge Road, as we look very 1 dimensional going forward, and can not seem to hold the ball for more than a few passes. This is not so much of a problem away from home , as we are exetremely well organised and disciplined and with the onus on the home to team to come at us, we seem better geared at counter attacking as we only need to string a minimum of passes together.
Solution : Go full time to get increased fitness and concentration levels and bring in better forward thinking players.. Unfortunately gong full time is not an option at the moment, but maybe now we have a chance to maybe get a few extra players in, who are more comfortable with the ball at their feet.
But realistically finishing 18th or 19th would be a great success, forget mid table this season.
And it is something that with our present set up is something that we will achieve. Posting speculation about the Andys future does not help.
I dont think that anyone realistically thinks that we are even close to being a full time club. The club seem to be adopting a slowly but surely approach to moving forward and one that I think I support at the moment.
Up the Fleet, and lets get back on the winning ( and scoring ) trail at Tamworth.
