The late late show

Recommended Posts

Probably the most underwhelming performance of the season at the Bridge this season but the sign of a good side is that of one who don't play well and still get 3 points.Bowers deserved there lead on the stroke of half time and could of got worse just after the break with a free kick on the edge of the box but a good save by Joe who was my man of the match ,but the rescue act was complete after Dicksons pen and then with Johnson's late late winner ,up the Urchins

Thought there was a better balance when Remi Sutton came on as left back, Mickey Parcell moved to the right and Rickie Hayles to the centre.

Not really sure what Parcell's role on the left was prior to this.

Really pleased to come away with the 3 points, smallsy done his homework and packed the midfield out leaving us really struggling to pick a pass in midfield. We missed Spence's energy, ball winning and calmness on the ball however the early changes made a difference and full marks to Stimson for recognising them. Both Hayles and Cooper put in big shifts against that big unit who enjoyed putting himself about but moaned all day when it was dished out back to him. This was a game in past we may well have lost (big crowd, struggling team with ex players who have a point to prove etc) but we overcame this..so maybe just maybe this could well be our season. Long way to go I know but the signs are promising. Well played everyone

I think the attitude of the team was exemplified by Nathan Cooper in the final minutes. Down injured indicating he needed to be subbed but all subs used so he gets up and then dribbles the ball from one end of the pitch to the other just shrugging off tackles before laying on a pin point pass for Marvin Morgan.

That was a soggy wet performance and far from the best football from our lads this season.  Bowers worked hard in first half in which our lads played too much long ball,  2nd half the lads upped their game  and substitutions worked for the urchins who showed superior fitness to nick all 3 points. 

Thd big winner today was the crowd of over 400 for non league day and hopefully some of the new faces today will come again.

Hi, new to the forum but have been to every home game this season.  We seemed to miss Spence in midfield.  They were happy to let our defenders be the playmakers which showed with the amount of long balls in the game.  We did well to grind out that result and it was great to see so many new fans at the game.

As many others have said, if you can win by playing this poorly, it has to be a good sign.

Great to see more fans through the turnstiles. Totally agree with Walski (welcome!). We miss Spence. This time last season he was getting stick, now indi(spenci)ble.
