Genius substitutions

Recommended Posts

For the first 65 minutes we all thought that was not the Hornchurch side we know Stimmo had to change something so 2 like for like changes up front to a few murmurings amongst the ranks but it was the turning point 2 quick fire goals and a great goal from Ruff to wrap it up and onto the hat for the next round hopefully,so for the last 25 minutes the real Urchins turned up

Fair comment.
For most of the first half we looked like a team that had never played together rather than an unchanged side with an unbeaten run going on.
Passes went astray, first touches were clumsy, gaps all over the place and only their no.8 inability to hit a barn door kept it to 1-0.
Although, I did wonder whether B&P would be able to keep the intensity of pressing players for the whole 90 minutes.

Half time seemed to calm everyone down and we were able to hold onto the ball more and build some dangerous attacks.
But the substitutions certainly made a massive change to the dynamic of the game.

I've watched the videos of the goals on Twitter several times and each is a delight.
Charlie Stimson juggling the ball before feeding Ellis to play the ball into a dangerous area and Alex getting across the defender - both subs involved after 5 minutes-talk about making an impact.
Remi picking up the ball in his own half, looking for a pass but seeing nothing so just runs 50 yards to the bye-line shrugging off attempted tackles before putting in not the best cross but good enough to beat everyone until it got to Ellis.
Alex chasing down the keeper forcing a pass straight to Joe Christou to take a touch and then literally put the ball on Charlie Ruff's head to nod into space and then a clinical finish.

£3,750 in the bank and a minimum £1,250 for next round if/when it gets played.
