It's now 6.25 and I can't believe no one has posted anything about today's game.
It's now 10:40pm and I still haven't calmed down. For the first twenty minutes we were on fire. Well done Jacko, what irony that you should open our account for this season. After that we didn't so much as fall asleep, as die. We did exactly the same as we did ever game last season. We fell back, gave them room and didn't capitalise on the multitude of attempts we did get, 3-0 at half-time would of been a fair score.
Second half same thing. No width, no vision, no Manny and most importantly, no defence. Drury was kept pinned down on the wing. Long balls 'hoofed' forward into empty space or the midfield trying to take on 3,4 or 5 players. Manny vanished until Moussa came on. Both Northwich goals looked inevitable, the defence were caught out both times. Where was our defence? Certainly not at Stonebridge Road.
Pluses, Matt Rouse, Ben Surey and Moussa Sidebe. And, some of the time Manny Omoyinmi, Roy Essandoh, Jimmy Jackson, Paul Wilkerson, Andy Drury. Improvement needed, Lee Gledhill, Steve McKimm, Graham Porter and Chris Moore, despite his flukey goal.
Note to Roy:- Please make sure your boots are on the correct feet.
Roy scuffed the toe of his boot on the ground when facing an open goal.
Note to Moussa (Romauld please translate):- Please do not try to handle the ball whilst jumping. The refs don't like it.
You may not of touched it this time, but why do it at all.
Note to Officials:- Are you all slow/lazy/blind/inept/corrupt:- Moussa got passed three opposition players, got into the penalty area, stopped, looked up, lifted his leg ready to play the ball across the goal mouth, thereby meaning he was poised on one foot and off balance, then got tackled from behind by the third of said opposition players, who was lying on the ground where he had been left. And according to Mr. Ray Lee, 'theatrically dived'. He was clear of everyone, so he couldn't of known who was behind him. Mr. Ray Lee your name is burnt into the memories of Fleet fans, do us all favour don't come back, cause your not welcome.
Sorry for such a long rant, this will probably be the first of many, but I'm so pissed off. Northwich looked what they were last season, relegation fodder. Do I feel better? No I bloody well don't. So lets annihilate Canvey, better still let's annihilate Essex.
