Manny

Recommended Posts

Good news about Manny (see the news page if you haven't already).

 

I assume this was agreed yesterday in order to beat the deadline?

Was brilliant second half, as was Sidibe when he came on, excellent second half performance from the team. If we could get Manny and Sidibe signed up for next season i really think a playoff place would be within our grasp as these really are two fast quality football league standard footballers. Well done today.

Manny was my 'manny' of the match (ho ho!), but thought Perkins had a great first half in an otherwise scrappy first 45... although he did seem to hit the most optimistic of passes that somehow found a red shirt every time!

 

Could have won 4-0 in the end, but I'll settle for two. And I see Che's 'on fire' at Margate with his second goal in as many games. Whoopeee.

Unfortunately, we seem to have picked up a few injuries today - Manny has a slight pull, Moussa is suffering from his kicking from their players, as is Mooro (all according to Andy on RK).

 

Actually thought their guy was a little unfortunate to get a second yellow today - looked like Moussa almost brought it on himself with the clumsy challenge he made.

 

And despite the webmeisters concerns about Mr Yerby, I actually thought he had a decent game - all the bookings were basically unavoidable, other than possibly the second yellow for their guy.

Could someone please enlighten on what as happened concerning Manny?

I checked out the news page and the latest news was still the signing of Roy.

Still, before we feel too sorry for them - Tamworth were no doubt one of the worst teams to grace us this season. Nothing up front, expert diving (the best one being the 'I've been poleaxed on the halfway line even though there isn't a Gravesend player near me') - Tamworth were truly awful.

Although the sending off was very harsh, these things always even themselves out. Their number 4 should have walked for a 2nd yellow when he showed dissent by slamming the ball down in a temper.....

Agree Tamworth were truly abysmal. Nothing but petulance,diving, shirt pulling, arguing with the ref and a shedload of vile tackles. They got what they deserved, nil points, 1 red and a bucketful of yellows.

Hang on they could be Margit in disguise!!!!

Got back from uni saturday morning to see my first fleet game for ages and was not disappointed. First half was a bit scrappy, and i began to wish i'd dressed up as a girl and got in for free. But the last half hour was the most entertaining half hour of football i've seen for a long time. Omoyimni was superb throughout the game- worked really hard off the ball, and on the ball his first touch was class, as were the touches that followed! When Sidibe came on and started overlapping manny, it was electric! Very unsellfish of sidibe to lay the ball across the goal for roy as well - can't believe he missed!

Nobody had a bad game, Moore again was solid, and his injury was a result of a typically brave challenge.

 

P.S. i thought Ben Surey did a good job when he came on too. Looks like we've picked up a couple of injuries, as is inevitable at the end of the season, so i think it's quite reassuring to have Surey in the squad.

I have to admit I was a very worried man some 3 or 4 months ago,and i really did have my doubts about Andy Ford,maybe ,like a lot of managers he'd gone as far as he could.

Now you may well point to the fact that where I now live I can't get to see as many games as most of you guys,I have a number of friends who go regularly to games,so I use them as a sounding board and to a man they were just as concerned as I was.

In the past Andy had a tendency to seek out young up and coming talent (very commendable),and seemed not to go for too many obvious signings of older experienced players looking for another rest home.

As has been stated before we lost some good players in the close season,and their replacements didn't look up to the job,the frustration we supporters felt must have been magnified for Andy as he was obviously keen to strengthen the squad,but with little money and not being the most glamorous club in the Conf;he was hamstrung,now with money available he has made some astute signings.

I can't deny I thought we could well be for the drop this season and i'm pleased that Andy has proved me wrong,thats what I wanted him to do in the first place,but i'm not going to crawl back under a stone just to satisfy anyone feeling smug out there,my fears were real and shared by many.

Having been a supporter for over 40 years i like everyone else only want success for the club.

Agree that surey looked fairly relaxed considering he is new.hopefully he can become a fleet great.

As for perkins, he was majestic today, his passses were maybe a little imaginitive, but they were not hit and hopers. He was picking players out all over the place. Great stuff.

Couldn't agree more Bloodnock. Several posts have been made over the past month or so in reply to similar smug comments (strangely made by those who also had doubts earlier in the season.) Can we now just get on and enjoy the rest of the season and a top half finish. Oh, and hopefully most of those concerned fans are still following the team week in and out. The club cannot afford to turn away support!

The one thing that did shine out today was that Andy Ford certainly made the right decision not to pay a kings ransom for Barnes who was very unimpressive but then again the majority of Andys decisions are correct

perhaps it might of had something to do with shearer and moore who realy did stop all there attemps to get near our goal i dont think i remember thier forward line winning one header this partnership is now starting to flourish along with the two fullbacks and wilko we are looking solid if we can keep them togeather we will really see the benifits next year

Seriously, though, many of us had doubts at the begining of the season. It was difficult not to when your club's bottom of the league. However, having doubts and calling for the manager's head after 6 games are two different things. Anyway, it's nice being proved right!!!!!

 

I agree, though. Let's really give it the biggun for the remaining matches and let the lads and everyone else know that the Fleet are here to stay.

In all my times following footie, I had never been so incensed by the action of fellow fans , whilst they were publically chanting for Andys head at the end of the Chester home game. I know they are only young lads and were lead astray by a few ringleaders. But to turn on a manager who had delivered us our best position and team in recent history was pathetic.

I hope that they remained coming down , as we have been treated again this season to another step forward in the pursuit of stable and sustained progress.

 

Lets all get behind the team for the remainder, and lets hope our fine current form might persuade a few more to fill the terraces, for what, in all likelihood ,will turn out to be meaningless mid table games for ourselves.

 

Its not smugness, its an appreciation of the long haul and circumstances that we operate in ..

 

Up the Fleet, Keep the faith and spread the word.

It was great for us to have a rendition of "andy give us wave" at the Leigh game last night. Thought that we created a reasonably good atmosphere in the 2nd half. I just couldnt stop laughing at the two ballboys and their inbred mate. Great finish by Pinns and an absolutely stunning cross by Andy Drury leading to Roy converting duely with a header. Moussa created problems but was really getting to gledhill again, lol.

I suspect the former caused the latter Alan, he didn't look right from kick-off, none of those bursts from deep or long diagonal runs. Pinns must start on Saturday.
