Well he did last night kept giving the ball away to the extent it was boring!

He wasn't he only one in that regard...

We've some absolute bells as so called supporters, who seemingly can't wait for DA to fail...

Just get behind him ffs & lose the negativity...

If we're in & around the bottom two at Christmas, then moan away...we won't be though

Not just DA, they enjoy slating many of our players as well at every opportunity.
They are usually from a group that don't have a particularly successful life of their own and take pleasure from seeing others struggle which, from their own perspective, make their own lives feel better:
Schadenfreudians is the common description of this group.

What if the defender is the best penalty taker? (Baines, Hierro etc)

Phil Neal being a prime example amongst a Liverpool team of players supposedly better able to put the ball into net in open play.
Some of the best penalty takers that I have been involved with have been goalkeepers. A few teams have even used their goalkeeper for in play penalties, although very few for obvious reasons.

You can see the ball flight from a long way out and it neither dips or swerves.

The ball does go slightly to his right, but still in area most would very much view as the centre of the goal.  And if it is to his right, surely he would be better to go with his right hand anyway?

It’s not personal. He seems a decent enough lad based on the little I know or see. Unfortunately he’s just not very good.

Doesn't it?

Would he?

Isn't he, based on what?

Itís easy enough to produce smart @rse responses of no substance. Again though,  I invite you or anyone else to enlighten my ignorant mind on how the ball hit the middle of the goal from 25 yards through no fault of Cornell?

Try that...

Im glad to see that its only my miss spelling of the word corperate and my being bored at nothing ever happening or even the existence of a plan that has angered you.
As long as you're on board with the main body of my diatribe that has to be a good thing

Surprised that you didn't repeat the word 'repeated' that he put before diatribe? Roll Eyes

Cornell is a poor mans Chris Dunn and if DA keeps playing him I think he will get him the sack.
DA has a keeper on loan from Reading, he needs to play him!
The fact we still can't keep a clean sheet is very worrying even though we've dropped into the pub league.

A 21 year old keeper who has never played a league game and wasn't all that for Aldershot last season?

Ive a very different take on yesterdays game than most it seems.

My main point is that I can see exactly what Deano is trying to do. Every time one of our players receives the ball it is clear the instructions are to play it. NOT HOOF IT. This resulted in many misplaced passes, but it also ensured that when we had a dominating spell we looked very very good.

Crooks was pretty much the best case study of this. Terrible in the first half, was walking a tight rope to just stay on the pitch before being sent off. Id have subbed him at half time. Second half, he ran the show for us in midfield WITH THE BALL, scored, looked like a totally different player and not one whose move had broken down during the week!

The game itself was the most enjoyable Cobblers match Ive watched for a long long time. Both teams played good football, looked very poor defensively and it could have ended up 5-5. A draw in the end was definitely a fair reflection.

Our biggest weak link by far was in the right back position. Based on yesterdays game, the new lad was Ashley Corker-esque! He just couldn't defend basically, and they targeted his side throughout. He was also very close to getting himself sent off.

I don't think our overall problem though is the back4 itself, they just don't get any protection. If I was the manager Id be looking to bring in a Jason Taylor type of player quickly. Obviously, McWilliams can do that job but he's the only one we've got who can. We need him back, and I reckon wed have won yesterday with him in the side. Mitigation as well because once Crooks had been booked, we had no one to put a foot in because JJOT seemed to be away with the fairies and was practically non-existent!

The subs also made us weaker, this is the 3rd game I've seen on the trot where this has happened. Walsall away, last week and yesterday. I didn't go to the Oldham game at the end of last season. This is my only really concern with Dean Austin at the moment.

But credit where credits due. The effort levels were bang on, the intent to play football was great to see, we didn't dick around time wasting and was trying to win the match right until the bitter end. Its a dangerous game but to play it we need to make better subs. Or in yesterdays case, less subs. The Waters for Williams was a change for change sake.

Finally fair play to the two players I've given most flak to. KVV was my mom, ironically I knew he was starting yesterday from 'inside information' I received on Friday - which I was hardly gonna share given Im a fan and don't want the opposition knowing of our plans!  Grin I had a real feeling that he'd score and I've never predicted that before a game until yesterday!  Grin

Cornell. Someone said his distribution was poor. I thought it was bloody brilliant! His handling throughout was excellent and as far as Im concerned he's got the shirt and its his to lose. The boy is doing well at the moment.

You were looking through my eyes, agree with all of that apart from, aside from the two defensive lapses, we should have won it.

I know very little about goalkeeping...

You could have left it there...
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Carlisle United away on: August 13, 2018, 08:14:59 am
It's fact because it will happen if we persevere with players that are simply not good enough

I refer you to my previous post...

I’ve arrived. Sat outside waiting to get in. Buzzing. I’m expecting a morale boosting 3-1 victory :-)

Just leaving Penrith Wetherspoons...

He might have, but generally he’s hopeless in the air

Maybe so, but that wasn't the statement I was responding to.

No sir,  because I was not present. But you and I both know that he he is allergic to a header..

Don't include me in your one eyed vision.

Daniel Powell will not head a ball. Anybody who observes the the team on on a regular basis, will confirm this. Ask anybody who attends on a constant basis, and they will confirm.

He provided the headed assist at Charlton, you haven't paid attention...
