They are the only unbeaten side in the top five divisions so far this season.......can we?
Remembering that it's a 2 o'clock kick off as well.

Gut feeling say's we'll win this one...

KC only been in the job for over a week but everything already feels much more professional in and around the club

Wonder if we'll ever know why Ash Taylor isn't playing, as no injury has been disclosed. Great early call by KC dropping AT (if that's whats actually happened) & to bring back Turnbull who has looked solid & much more reliable that AT.

Looking forward to this one...

REMEMBER 2PM KICK OFF!

Thereís some interesting team selections for Curle to consider for this one - I reckon the following will definitely start: Cornell, Facey, Buchs, Pierre, Turnbull, Foley, JJOT and crooks with McWilliams and Van Veen almost certain to play too. The only real dilemma might be Hoskins or Waters but I expect the former to get the nod.

Because there's no other way to financially support the club, no decent sized supporters club house selling pre match food and drink, vast food queues on the concourse etc, so I'm happy to give the club the extra few pound.
I don't buy a season ticket anymore as those belittling our club might see it as endorsing their stance.

See on their forum, they have us as one of nine previous 'Top Flight' teams they are facing, making them very proud of how far they've come!

Can we get them to do our PR?  ;D

Interesting to see who starts this game .
I think he will play VV with Hoskins up front although it didnít work versus Bury.
Facey , Turnbull and Pierre at the back with McWilliams and Buchs .
Personally I would rather see McWilliams alongside Foley in midfield , crooks pushing on and JJOT on the bench .
I just hope someone doesnít take us apart with players out of position.

You are just toooooo baaaaadddd!!!!!!

As a Doc, you should be reading the signals that Curley Cobblers is giving out.  Our Super vV needs love - and then he will score.

"Feed the Pope and he will score....." was a PV chant.

Perhaps we need "Love the v-Veen and he will score" as our chant?

Let's show him love.....

....please????

I thought Bridge looked OK in the LWB role when he came on v Oxford. I think he may be more suited to the position than Buchs. I love Buchs to bits but he is first and foremost a LB in a back 4.

I agree with most of this - Van Veen is clearly more of a goal threat than Williams but Williams puts a real shift in. Also I donít like it when Hoskins and VV are a partnership as for some reason Hoskins plays as the centre forward while VV drops off which completely isolated Sam.

It was noticeable on Tuesday the extra effort vV appeared to put in after he had scored, although he had dropped back into more of a number 10 role.
He effectively assisted himself for the goal, albeit he was winning the ball back after he had mis-controlled it.

I am not saying players canít convert position but sometimes they can look great the first time they play there and then get totally exposed as teams work out their weaknesses .
This happens so often with wing backs .
Looking at what we have now , I do think Moloney left a year too early , despite his injury issues . He was an excellent link player going forward

Yet again so little desire on show, second to every 50/50 and no one seems to want to put a challenge in when they're building up in our half. Curle needs to be backed in January because most of these players have already ptoven once that they've not got the stomach for a relegation battle.

Credit to the players and manager - we stepped up in the second half and pulled this round .
The first half was terrible and it wasnít entirely down to the wind . We could not hold the ball or string two passes together as players kept attempting Hollywood balls .
In the second half we worked harder and pressed much better .
Van Veen made all the difference when he came on and never gave up on anything . Surely he has to start now .
We deserved it in the end and letís hope this springboards us on .

Forest Green deserved nothing. Time wasting, rolling around the floor and Cooper was embarrassing. I would have been very angry if we hadn't won that.


van Veen changed the game, Foley once again had a good game and early saves from Dave Cornell were important. Crooks should have not been risked after the clash of heads.

Post by: BackOfTheNet on October 13, 2018, 17:16:31 pm
Damn that felt good.  ;D

A poor first half and, although I'd have to see it again to be sure, from the angle I was sitting their goal looked a mile offside. Much better second half performance, turned around by the introduction of Van Veen.

Loved the celebrations after the second goal; I think we needed that to help close the rift that's appeared between the fans and players of late.

A word on Forest Green - I've had a bit of a soft spot for them after visiting there in the cup a few years ago and was pleased to see them get into the league, but after that negative, time wasting and cheating performance they've gone right down in my estimations. I'd be embarrassed to support a team that conducts itself like that; the win was all the sweeter for coming that late into the stoppage time that was caused by their relentless gamesmanship.

Lastly, a word for JJ - as he left the pitch it was lovely to see him make a beeline for the little lad in the wheelchair that led the team out today. Top man.

That was so sweet after his touch line antics and the way he always gets his teams to waste time .
Hilarious .
It was also retribution that their defender who started that fracas lost them the game by losing the ball to Van Veen .

Pity we didn't start playing till an hour was gone, but felt the result deserved. FGR an annoying bunch of ***** - even the subs were involved in the disruption tactics.
Their goal looked to be one of the worst offside decisions I have seen (and that's a few) unless I missed something.
Van Veen looks like the only one we have who can change a game. Foley is a real 100% man, and thought Pierre awesome today - nearest thing we have to an inspirational leader. Let's hope this leads somewhere, but content to bask in contentment for a few days at least.

All in all a massively important win and the good thing is that there are still a lot of areas that we can improve going forward. I'm not convinced by the wing backs - waters gives us a big threat going forward but doesn't really have any defensive awareness (understandably - maybe McWilliams is a better bet for mk) while Buchs  on the other provides the opposite although he got badly caught out defensively a couple of times. I thought the midfield as a whole were a bit off the pace and too deep for the first half and bits of the second and Williams/Hoskins were living off scraps. I think curle's substitutions were good, especially van veen who changed the game.

Very good second half. The best for a very long time. It was also nice to see the assistant managers actually getting involved and barking orders. A nice little team we have on the sideline gives me confidence for the rest of the season.

Reid certainly looked off side from Row M 155 but any decision not helped by the Lino being somewhat behind the play!
The applause and reaction to the equaliser was magnificent , more. like we had won the League. A lot of strange comments on our first half performamance - the conditions made FGR look a useful side and certainly put us on the back foot. Fortunately for us most of their football was played sufficiently far enough away from our goal. They lacked a cutting edge on the flanks. Their midfield (Grubb in partic) played neat interpassing again not too penetrative type of play. This is why we probably got to half time only one down. Thought Cornell played his part with one good save and 2/3 routine ones! Turnbull and Pierre did ok as did Facey  and Buchs. Not so sure on Waters who had a good game on Tuesday night but did his job ok. As for the great SH certainly annoyed their defence and was as far as I can remember the only player to carry any real threat to them until the emergence of the great vV ! I found Williams performance a little disappointing until the 96th minute where he was in the right place at the right time enabling most of us to forgive and forget the previous 90 odd minutes.  To me the game turned when Reid was substituted as certainly  first half he was the best fwd on the field. After that FGR's attack was a nuisance rather than a direct threat and most of them came to nothing. vV certainly saved us today and his last minute challenge and excellent lay off to Williams was the stuff of dreams as was the celebrations off and on the pitch when the ball went in. If ever a moment was a season defining moment it was that goal. For once the players, management and crowd were of one and those bonds will live on and hard to break or even forget. No wonder KC was hugging most players as they left the pitch! Good day at the office today.

I'm not going to be negative on anyway at all as it was a fantastic result and we looked fantastic second half. But WTF was Cornell doing for their goal??? Utter howler and seems to have been swept under the carpet by most. Didn't cost us today,  but it's the sort of thing I'm talking about we have seen from him over previous seasons that has/will cost points.

Anyway top win and great 3 points, pleaded KC niw gas a full week on the training ground before next Saturday

You are going by the replays - I dpnt think Cornell had much of chance other than bring him down. Made two good saves first half too which you even fail to mention. Cornell didnt cost us today at all; when will your prejudice come to rterms your football brain? Never I suppose.

It was the way he came flying out nevers, your right absolutely no chance if getting anywhere near anything other than brining him down.

You miss my point entirely (as per normal) yes it didn't cost anything today but that sort of rashness is exactly what I've been talking about.

Anyway as I've said no negative vibes today, just a point I wanted to make.

On to Franchise next week for 3 more points.

Respect that you want to move on from the topic.

But, given his over-all performance, if he also stopped that chance (by whatever would have been the best option and reactive ability), would he not be playing for England?

Quest gave an indication that he was offside (as did the Chron); sat in row K155 seat so was virtually in line with Reid before  he received the ball. The point is the lines man was caught out of position.

I'm not going over old ground and like I've said Cornell has been 100% better this year and deserves his place in the team, also one mistake should not dampen what has been a good start, it's just that today reminded me again of days gone by and on another day may have cost us.

A very wise old relative of mine who had a significantly better football brain than me once said to me, its no good having a keeper that will make 4 or 5 world class saves throughout a game then in the last minute makes a howler and you end up losing the game 1-0. Didn't cost us today but may do going forward at some point.

Anyway it does not detract from an excellent 2nd half display and 3 points and onto next week.

Cornell dropping another bollokc was noted by Curle, who mentioned it post match without being prompted. He came rushing out and got nowhere near the ball about five minutes before the goal too, but narrowly escaped that one.

Iím sure Curle realises we need a keeper and will bring one in ASAP.

Great win which was fully deserved. We found it difficult in the first, in no small part down to the wind being against us, however I felt we could have coped with the conditions better than we did and we allowed the game to become very scrappy.

In the second we were excellent and made much more out of the wind being in our favour than FGR had done and ultimately could have scored more than the two we eventually did.

Excellent work by VV for the winner and great for Williams to open his account. I reckon the two of them starting together could soon become a regular occurrence. Good games for Foley and Turnbull but my MOM was Pierre, closely followed by VV who is a class above this league.

FGR's time-wasting tactics were pretty despicable but in the end they got what they deserved, which was nothing.

The ref/lino's were again terrible. In the first Buchanan received a forearm to the face while jumping for the ball, which sent him to ground. I don't think this was deliberate, but IMO it was a foul nonetheless which wasn't given despite the ref being on the spot. On the other hand the ref gave several soft fouls against us within minutes either side of the incident. Also in the first one of their players deliberately body-checked Waters just inside the box and I have seen penalties given for much less all too often. Couldn't see what Crooks was booked for - the defenders challenge on Crooks seemed to verge on the reckless more than anything but perhaps seeing a replay I'd feel differently. Can anyone confirm if their players put VV in a headlock during the touchline fracas? Because it looked that way from where I was sitting!

Anyway, the late goal and much needed three points feels like a turning point. Still much work to be done but we are definitely on the right track.

I just wondered what tv coverage showed it because I have only seen Sky and itís inconclusive .
I have defended Cornell but he didnít deal with it too well . Should have gone through the ball and not stopped . Or stayed in his area .

Would it be better to have a keeper who didn't make the world class saves and didn't make the clanger too?
By the logic you'd lose the game 4 or 5-0 instead of 1-0.

With Cornell's 'rush of blood', sometimes you are criticised if you do, or criticised if you don't.  At least he attempted something even if it didn't turn out as planned.  That's twice now he has made that decision and it has resulted in a goal however, he has also made that decision a number of other times this season and it has turned out alright, but we won't mention those.  ::)

I notice that the Offy site version didn't include the Waters miss.   :o
Good couple of attempts by Hoskins from the free kick and in open play.
Great assist from Turnbull for the first and watch him during the penalty area scramble after that... ;D

Not seen it mentioned elsewhere, so here's a note to celebrate that Pierre scissor kick. What a goal from a centre back that nearly was. It may well have been goal bound until Billy Waters managed to clear it off the line!

I agreed with the post earlier in the thread about Waters not being great defensively, until I watched the highlights. He actually made some key interventions. Shame he couldn't bury a sitter and saved Pierre's worldy.

You have to ask him row and seat number - if he says North Stand or West Stand from Dug out to South End of West; then give up as he must have extra terrestial vision. East Stand ok , where the youngsters are 8)

So the answer is you can't be sure!

Given that Iím sure he couldnít run 5 yards in half a second he must have been offside when the pass was made.
Do you think he was off side?

Not seen it mentioned elsewhere, so here's a note to celebrate that Pierre scissor kick. What a goal from a centre back that nearly was. It may well have been goal bound until Billy Waters managed to clear it off the line!

I agreed with the post earlier in the thread about Waters not being great defensively, until I watched the highlights. He actually made some key interventions. Shame he couldn't bury a sitter and saved Pierre's worldy.

That was a weird one. It sounded like the whistle had gone and most of the players (including possibly Waters) weren't sure if play was meant to be going on or whether the free-kick was going to be bought back. (edit: In fact you can tell on the highlights that the ref blew his whistle after Buchanan played the ball and this caused some confusion, a terrible piece of refereeing for sure.) Waters still could have done better though as it was ultimately a decent opening, but I certainly wouldn't describe the chance as a 'sitter' by any means.

Edit: To Waters' credit I recall him showing good composure and making space for a shot for himself on a couple of occasions, one which worked the keeper and one which took a deflection and looped past the goal out for a corner, neither of which are on the extended highlights. I've got a feeling he's got goals in him for us this season.

We were sat in the East stand during the first and from behind the play at least he looked to be in an obvious offside position. The highlights don't clear this up, but if you look where Reid is standing when the ball is headed up field 2-3 seconds before the pass for the goal he is level with Facey and appears to be stationery. It's not like he made a run from deep on to the through ball by which his momentum could have opened up the large gap between him and the defenders as the ball came back over the top. IMO it was a very questionable decision.

He was definitely onside and it was poor defending all the way from the header that went straight to their player to the goalkeeper that made a hash of it by coming out too far

What concerns me after watching the short highlights from Saturday is the amount of shots from the opposition where the player hasn't been closed down to prevent the efforts.
This has been a Cobblers problem for at least a season now and doesn't appear to have been addressed by any of the managerial incumbents.
If the opposition can't shoot, they can't score.

Just because fans booed the Ref and Linesman at halftime it doesnt mean they are correct. When im at a game it pisses me off all these so called experts who always get it right, but, havent got enough balls themselves to ever Ref or run the line. To many times fans see a player receive the ball and complain he is offside, either they dont understand the offside rule, or they dont see where the receiving player was when the ball was played.
 I will go with what Facey says, him and the linesman had the best views.

The referee gave the goal as there was no flag! The linesman was caught out by being not up with play. Understandably given the convoluted transition of the ball. Several players appealed for offside of which Facey was one! Had we lost by that Reid goal would KC and others been so Ďmagnanimousí?

Due to the path of the ball there was no line as such (at the time of the pass). Ideologicaly you maybe right; the poor clearance caused the problem. From where I sat many shouted off side instantly the opposition pass was made. As it is all irrelevant now but would Facey have admitted his involvement publically if Reidís goal was the winner!

It was a long pass forward. Could Facey look along the line while simultaneously looking up the pitch at the exact moment the pass over the top is made? It's guesswork, Facey doesn't 'know' if he was offside or not.

Facey also may not have been the last defender looking across the line as this could well have been Turnbull who is in fact the closest to Reid as the ball comes over and who is also clearly appealing for offside.

According to the video, the AR looked as if he was in line with the second last defender.  The same video that can't tell if the player was or wasn't offside.

What makes you think Facey would be looking 'up the pitch' the moment the pass is made?
Linesman generally do ok with one pair of eyes. It's similar process for players, looking along the line if your the last man/linesman.
If Turnbull was the last man and played Reid on then Facey would have also seen that.
Turnbull however would not have been aware if Facey had played Reid on.
The position is crucial, last man/linesman. A position Hoskins still seemingly has trouble with.

Good point as from the video it appears that Turnbull was the nearest man to Reid. Where this leaves Facey
in playing Reid onside is somewhat debatable! The Linesman had a opportunity to raise his flag when the ball was first punted upfield and must have noticed that Reid was in an offside position. For whatever reason he hesitated possibly because he was unsure. Still as said before itís an irrelevance so no point in prolonging the debate.

I don't and obviously he wouldn't be, not if he was 'looking along the line'.

Players often don't know if they are onside/have caught a player offside. More often than not they do, but to know all the time or even close to it is nigh on impossible.

Flagging offside's can be a thankless task, because some are much easier to call right than others. It can happen that however well the linesman is positioned he may not be able to make a call correctly, and this can be especially true for long passes in open play. While linesmen get it right more often than not they often also get it wrong and sometimes quite badly.

Ultimately the result made the decision irrelevant anyway.

Waters still could have done better though as it was ultimately a decent opening, but I certainly wouldn't describe the chance as a 'sitter' by any means.

A 'sitter'may have been pushing it in hindsight. However, you can't hope to get better chances than that if you're a professional footballer. I have no issue with him not scoring, IF the keeper pulls off a blinding save, but you've got to be asking him to make a very tough stop. Not hitting the target there is is pretty criminal for a pro with that much space and a clear sight of goal. There must be countless non-league players who would expect to bury that more times than not.

Will he get goals? I'm not too sure, but he's never really had a decent run of games, so I hope he does now as I think he's done enough to earn that. Waters always looked great against pre-season lower opposition, so hopefully a confidence boost from a run in a winning team can see him deliver at this level again. He seems to have bulked up a bit too btw.
