Have to say we were shocking tonight, as even Hope is saying in his tweet in the last half hour.

 

That W&F team have loads of pace, something we were wary of, but it meant to large extents we were second to every ball. Midfield dropping off to just in front of the back four to negate the pacey threat is all well and good, but it meant we were passengers for much of the game. Barber at left back was torn a new one, a woeful performance. I hate to say it but I think his limit is Div 1 North and it showed tonight. Why Jay was never put on at left midfield to 'double team' their number 7 I'll never know.

 

Delighted for the league's top scoring big boned centre half tonight. Outstanding performance. Also Imber gives a reassuringly steady performance week in week out behind the back four.

 

As an aside, chatted to the their assistant manager after the game and he said their pre season went extremely well ( think it showed in their commitment and pace tonight), and that they are aiming for the play-offs at least.

Maybe that was because he wasn't one of the five named substitutes?

Fair point! Never heard the subs getting announced, did see him sitting there in the second half.

Must agree, VERY poor performance. Thank goodness we don't get the possession stats, as we'd be lucky to hit 30%.

 

We just weren't up to the job.

2 well taken goals 90 minutes apart; and we had 2 other attacks in that interim period

I can see us suffering some heavy defeats if we don't improve the quality of the team

 

Very disappointing crowd aswell

 

hey ho we won another 40 points and we should be safe

I'm not sure what crowds people were expecting this season? Wingate are hardly the most well supported side are they? If we maintain a mid-table position this season I'd take an average of 373... A couple of seasons ago we were barely scraping 200.

We probably got carried away with the 900 at the end of last season.

 

500 has to be the target once the August holidays are over.

 

Performance last night not the best and not as good as Saturday- but I am sure Steve and the Players are aware of that.

Can only improve.

 

Saturday will be just as hard.

I hope we haven't based our budgets on an average of 373; plan to fail and your plan will succeed!

 

Saturday will be another tough game, let's hope we can give the lads more vocal support

I think we'll see a much bigger crowd on Saturday. Looking at last season we had a crowd of 289 for a midweek game against Chatham Town, admittedly back in February, but some people will be on holiday at the moment and midweek games are less well supported in general.

 

Saturday will give us a better idea. I'd hope we can get at least 500 through the gate and build from there. In fact thinking about it 500 would be excellent considering that Whitehawk look a poorly supported side, with only 135 for their home game against Lowestoft.

Be great to get 500 but it'll be like just under 400 I think. Whitehawk will bring less than W&F...

Want to see Mark Kirby's goal again?

Was the W&F player harshly sent off?

How did W&F miss that chance?

Was it a penalty kick or not?

Great coverage again ColdEnd, always great viewing.

 

Great finish by Kirby for his second.

 

Did look a bit harsh the first booking, and the second one was just a tangle of legs. Would be very disappointed if it was one of ours who got sent off for these two bookings.

 

Poor miss by W&F that header, but if you can't take your chances you'll get punished.

 

Think it was a penalty, ref only booked MK because the ball had reached Imber. Would be raging if we didn't get one for something similar.

yes they handles the ball in the area, but unfortunately you did get that one

No, you budget to a conservative crowd estimate. If crowds increase, so can the budget. Do it the other way around and you're asking for trouble.

 

I get that, so what do you think our average crowd will be this season?

Have tried a few time from the other stand but its better from where I am. my little camera doesn't really have the zoom power + the athletics floodlights get in the way.
