Re: Darlington v Chester

As Mister e says, it's simple probability. The more shots you have, the more chances of rebounds you have.

Re: Darlington v Chester

I think he means what I've always called a 'rebound goal'. During the promotion season under Cyril Knowles we were experts at them. It's where a shot gets deflected in the box and someone else is on hand to score from the rebound. You need a bit of luck for the ball to drop favourably.

Re: Simply not good enough

Brackley away we were saving ourselves for the Walsall replay. Walsall at home we matched League 2 opposition We beat Gainsborough. Telford first half we were excellent. I agree the last game and a half we have been poor, but kind of suspected a hiding after a 4 1/2 hour midweek trip with part time ...

Re: Leamington (A)

Think we had 19 points at this time last year. We also went on a horrendous run where we just weren't competitive, but Andrew Nelson changed that.
I notice AA wouldn't do any interviews after the game.

Re: Leamington (A)

Our last 2 away games we've not even competed. Brackley was understandable but not even competing with a lower mid table team is tough to take.

Re: Leamington (A)

By the time January comes around and Gary Martin is in we could be in the bottom 3/4 if we carry our form on. We are effectively 17th now as Alty have 3 games in hand. Kettering in 20th are just 4 points off. AA hoped that we could keep in the pack by Christmas and when we get players back then we'd...

Re: Solihull Moors Away - FA Trophy 1st Rnd

We need Solihull - Rotherham to be a draw tomorrow night. A replay would then be midweek before they play us in the Trophy, meaning they'll rotate their squad to prioritise the FA Cup and hopefully play the kids against us. That's what I'm banking on anyway.

Re: Darlington V Telford

Was that a little bit of a retort by AA in the post-match interview, when he said Justin Donawa didn't impact the 2nd half one little bit. Markedly different words from saying that someone faded a little. Sounds like he's saying 'That's why Donawa doesn't start.

Re: Darlington V Telford

Think we do need a couple of fresh legs. Those 3 long term injuries really bite whenever we have injuries and suspensions like we had today. The loss of Tyrone is huge , which AA has obviously acknowledged. I also think there may still be a bit of a cup hangover and we need to move on quickly.

Come on Ghost, you've missed a trick there. Clearly his fantasy chippy has a massive car park next to it which he rents out to make his mega money. He makes next to nothing from the chippy itself.

Just had a peek. Yep. Ted is back, or maybe he never went away. Either way, he's adamant to the point of exasperation that Solihull aren't bankrolled and that any money is made from their car park.

Feeling very flat about it. Disappointed with our defeat but not the manner of it. Fine margins and all that. Thought Walsall played it well actually and didn't give us too much of a sniff.

Re: Will Darlo go for the hybrid model?

To be fair to Spen, what he's saying is entirely what happened to Blyth.
Also, it may be we have just 1 or 2 players on full time, and this may be the way to get someone like Dan McGuire. Pretty lonely training sessions though if there's only a couple!

We are 1-0 down with 15 minutes to play. A helicopter lands on the rugby pitch next door and Osagi and Justin get out. They leg it to the bench where they are immediately brought on and both play a hand in a 2-1 fightback.

Wednesday was why there was a lack of tackles. If you mistime a tackle and have a card happy ref, you might miss Weds, especially with such a thin squad.
