ETFC V Haringay

Recommended Posts

Won't be at the match today, so will be following the match via here and twitter - hopeful of another win after the last 3 performances.

- Haringay are struggling, plus no better time to play them - if I was one of their players I wouldn't want to risk getting injured and miss my chance of TV fame on Friday!

- Expect it to be a case of us having to break them down, and we need to play like we did against Whitehawk rather than Brightlingsea!

- Sam Chaney played for U23s in the week, so hopefully he will be involved in the squad today!

- Hoping for a comfortable victory with no injuries before the big FAT game at Basingstoke next week.

- Up the Town!

Assistant referee was late getting to the game so it was delayed by 15 minutes. Very good game which we managed to hold on for a 2-2 draw. I thought Haringay were the harder working team who could have scored more because we seemed unable to cope at times with their pace. However, one point with ten men is better than nothing.

A frustrating afternoon all round. Really enjoyed the 1st half performance and deservedly went in ahead at HT. The 2nd half was much more even and the sending off helped Haringey’s cause. Once again we persisted with stubborn tactics and left our substitutions far too late. Why wasn’t Mickey Parcell introduced as well? All things considered it was a fair result IMO but at half time, I would have expected us to have gone on to win the game.

 Have to agree CD regarding tactics. I certainly don't understand why we always adhere rigidly to only one man up front. It was apparent that Bricknell had to compete with a four man defence which, without support and very little help from the referee, allowed them too much lee-way in the ways they tried to nullify him. That being my greatest understatement of the week. !!!!!

I too was surprised to see Mickey Parcell left on the bench. It was also very early on that the pace shown by them down their right was their main threat and needed to be contain with similar pace. 

That said some of our passing moves, especially leading up to the first goal was excellent. Also Youngs and Johnstone made  exceptional contributions.

We also showed a lot more resilience when down to ten men than in previous seasons. None more so than Wright with his string of second half saves. All of which earned us a point even though the referee's added timekeeping took some understanding vis-a-vis  what was displayed to the crowd and what he allowed.  

 By the way, did I imagine that I have read that the FA made a statement against mass appeals to referee such as that witnessed yesterday by the Haringey's team. I bet this was not mentioned in the his report.

Said before AL tactics and substitutions are almost set in stone.... Liam has now come on between the 65th and 83rd minute eight games on the trot.... the set up remains the same every game but that saying the manager was badly let down in the second half by some pretty awful crossing... most not even getting above waist high of the first defender.... there was panic every corner Boro had as opposed to our infuriating love for the short corner that inevitably breaks down....that said there was enough promise in the opening half that shows we can play good football with the formation we use... it's a shame we didn't sustain it....

Haringey! 

I also get annoyed by the reference to "Haringay". Haringay is an area of London bordered by Wood Green and Manor House. Haringey is a London Borough formed in 1964 by the amalgamation of Tottenhan, Wood Green and in particular Hornsey. Haringay was the border between Wood Green and Tottenham. The new administration decided to incorporate the "ey" of Hornsey so that the inhabitants of that borough would not feel left out.

Does this help? Double rr.

Harringay is a district of north London, England, within the London Borough of Haringey. It is centred on the section of Green Lanes running between the New River, where it crosses Green Lanes by Finsbury Park, and Duckett's Common, near Turnpike Lane.

Doh

 

Guess midway through the 2nd half we would have taken that result.

However, after conceding so early on thought we did very well first half and were deservedly in the lead at half time.  

Thing is that teams often figure out they can outmuscle us and Joe once again made some great saves to keep us ahead/drawing.

Pity that as yet other than the "dominant" performances we are yet to work out how to finish teams off.   Think the way we're going we'll soon end up draw specialists despite our lovely passing game which was on show yesterday.

Our final ball is still quite disappointing/frustrating!

Your not at all pedantic Steph, after all we must applaud our wonderful mini-politicians for sorting it out for us. No wonder that so many end up as MPs. They must be the ones forming the back bone of the negotiators involved  in Brexit. Or is arbitrators or arbiters? 

God this beats Football !!!!!

 It was created in 1965 by the amalgamation of three former boroughs. It shares borders with six other London boroughs. Clockwise from the north, they are: Enfield, Waltham Forest, Hackney, Islington, Camden, and Barnet.

Gosh, no wonder the country is in a mess. I do hope the minor bureaucrats stop joining us all together before they try to combine us with Brussels, so that we can get back to talking football. Mind you, like the BBC often say but won't admit they say it, "it's all being done despite Brexit".

Think I will drop out now as I knew it ended with an "EY" all the time.
