Rother Posted September 14, 2013 Share Posted September 14, 2013 Well that was a disappointment chaps! We seem to be going backwards every week since the start of the season. No bad luck involved, this was another team that looked stronger, hungrier and able to play better football. I am very surprised but stuff needs to be sorted out and quick. I have previously commented on how pleasing it was that Mick Woodham didn't resort to shouting and swearing at the players; well today he did both. I am not sure that Tony Thompson's constant coaching during the games is having the desired effect. Last season the young players were largely allowed to get on with it during games, and did very well. This season it feels a little different. Why are we playing long ball? I just don't get it. We are the smallest team in the league and we have some skilful players. We need to play it on the ground. George Gould has done well up front in that he has scored some good goals but I have said many times that I don't think he is a centre forward. This season has proved that emphatically for me. He isn't making the runs, he isn't creating the space, and he isn't getting shots off. For all his inexperience (fitness issues) Kane Jones makes things happen and will be a better bet. Matty Day is getting knocked off the ball too easily at the moment. Maybe Gould will be better moving back to right back? I like Day going forward, maybe he'd be decent on the wing? I liked the look of Miles Norman today, yes he misplaced some passes but he pinged it around and kept the ball on the floor. Whatever, we need to wake up and make some changes because for the clear aspirations Micky set out at the start of the season look a long long way off right now. Injuries haven't helped but they are not an excuse for this style of football we are watching every week. Let's not forget some of the superb saves Dennison has made this season, he may well be the best in the league and without him our performances may have been more reflected by results. I suppose the real question is, why do ever-present players like Lazza (until today), George and Matty appear to have gone backwards. The cure all for me, a simple fan? Keep the bloody ball on the ground!!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
