They have signed a new defender in time for the weekend.

"James Aggrey has signed on loan from Woking until the end of the season. James who has also played in Ireland for Bohemians is 6' 5" and a central defender. He goes straight into the squad for Saturday's home game with Canvey Island".

Aggrey was on trial at Southend recently.

Was he? Reading the Woking forum he was unable to get in their side so i`m suprised Southend were having a look.

I'm sure I read in the Echo he was having a trial there.

Aggrey was on the bench for Woking when we played at Kingfield.

I seem to remember one of their defenders being extremely lanky but not very good - can't remember if it was him or not - if it was then I don't think this is going to make a big difference and the Gulls will still win!

Unfortunately, the title of this thread was correct. We didn't seem interested at all, and apart from a well saved Hallett effort and a Clarke cross-come-shot that hit the bar, we really didn't look like scoring.

Overall it was a very disappointing day. However, I feel there were a few positives to take out of today. The return of Bimmo will I'm sure be a major plus for the rest of the season. His experience and ability is something I feel we have missed, and even though he was clearly lacking match practice today, I'm sure in a couple of games he will be back up to the pace of the Conference.

Another positive I can draw was Joe Dolan. Overall, as a defence we were a shambles. However, vocally Dolan was very good at letting everyone know their job and controlling the line. Again, with a few games practice together I think that the defenders we have can improve and tighten up. However, as a team we were very poor vocally and the lack of communication was evident throughout.

And one final positive, those birds at Northampton services were something else! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

I've started to get a little worried about us creating opportunities.

Apart from Aldershot, where we whacked in a couple of late goals, we haven't scored in 5 of our last 6 games. Even against Aldershot we failed to have a shot on target for 80 odd minutes.

From the games I've seen we seem to break down in the final third - was this still the case today?

We seem to be missing Lee, but would he make any difference if he's not going to get any service?

To think, we used to be known for our attacking prowess. Now we're just known for being a walk over.

A concern of mine a while ago.
You could be watching the game and you realise half an hour has gone by and we haven't had a shot on occasions.

Don't know what the immediate answer is but this has to be addressed where at least we have a chance of htting back if we conceed.

No.
seem to recall we only had 2 shots on goal yesterday.
we are getting nothing from set pieces,and nothing from midfield.
we never really looked like we could score,and that has indeed been the case for a while.
have started to worry now.

I started to worry a while ago - we're repeating last season and we'll be lucky to better it if we carry on like this. It's lucky there's only two relegation places this year, however, we must improve for next season otherwise we could find ourselves occupying one of the bottom four positions...

trouble is everybody wants to play us now cos we are in freefall and seemingly a pushover. Game against Crawley in a fortnight's time is massively important - we need to win a few games to put some breathing space between us and the bottom two. At the moment it is a bit of a repeat of last season: slump in form coinciding with Boylan's absence...

We have to get Lee Boylan back if we are going to stay up but it looks like he won't be back for another month at least.
Thinks are starting to look very worrying.

to be fair, I'm not sure we let Ollie go, think he got a better offer and went. Not sure how much good it's done him though...

I think Boylan's ability to make something out of nothing will be important. On numerous occasions last season the game was ticking along with not many chances being created, and then all of a sudden Boylan would produce a moment of brilliance and we'd score.

One major issue that we had with the team selection yesterday was leaving Jonny Keeling on the bench. Assuming he was match fit he should definately started, and for the 15-20 minutes he was on we created more than we had done for the rest of the match. He is a class player and needs to be given a place in the starting XI to prove his worth.
