Don’t get me wrong I’d rather see one of our own in the first team than joe Powell or elsnik and unless they’re given an opportunity we’ll never know if they’re ready, but with the possible exception of Jay Williams (who still needs to fill out a bit which will come as he matures) are any of the others physically ready for league football? I agree with Coolcat to a degree in saying that when Morgan Roberts came on he looked about 14 - it wouldn’t be so much of an issue if he was rapid but he didn’t look particularly quick.

The only exception I can think of is Michael Jacobs who was only 17(?) when he started playing regularly for us and, despite looking like he was fresh out of secondary school, was head and shoulders above anybody else of the pitch most weeks.

I think Hoskins is playing for 2 reasons, 1 the counter and 2 for his defensive work to stop the rot.

I would have done similar on Saturday but probably would have brought on Williams earlier.

Or start with both?

Disagree that A Williams is our only natural goal scorer. I think Morias looks like he is a bigger threat if anything, he's certainly a real pest in respect of occupying defenders.

Not saying Morias doesn't give defenders something to think about (just like Hoskins does) but I think Williams is the only one I feel confident will put a chance away given the opportunity. His good run of form seems to have been rewarded with time on the bench.

There were rumours of Williams going to Salford in January weren't there? Now he seems to be out of favour with Curle. I am thinking maybe either Williams wanted out and the deal didn't go through or Curle wanted him out but Williams didn't want to go.

Williams scored 8 in 10 games from mid-Oct to the end of December. He then failed to score in three starts and has been benched for 5 games in a row, failing to come on in two of those and then obviously only had 5 mins against Crawley on Saturday.

With van Veen and Crooks being sold he is our top scorer with 8 goals which is double the next two players; Morias and Pierre(!)

He's the only natural goal scorer we have and needs to be played. I don't know why he'd been dropped but he needs to come back in asap.

Fantastic result, and so important to get it at a despondent time. Well done to SuperSam - really hope it can turn a corner for him. Always had the pace and the effort - if he can start getting some end product too then that's great all round.

His first goal shows he has real ability up front. Good strength to hold off and turn the much larger defender and pace to burn to round the other. His stockiness/low centre of gravity and speed remind me of Aguero, if he had a better finish on him he'd be a quality League One striker. Hoepfulyl gets another chance up top on Saturday.

I still dont agree with your opinion particularly as it is based on a poor quality video which you supplied. How on earth one can make a judgement from a video film which lacked any close up facility is beyond me.
I also support Irchys comment on the goal, plus the commentators and the Chron Video which heralded it as a great. As for moving on as you put I dont accept your churlish comments on Hoskins goal; you clearly have a one side opinion on the player and although the evidence is clearly against you simply dig in and at best offer a mild snipe on "alien concept".

Were the commentators watching with binoculars to get such a close view on it then? You seem obsessed with first impressions of goals rather than watching replays. Can you please provide the Chron video with a better angle?

I have no real opinion on Hoskins, and can't remember offering anything negative about him on his form this/last season apart from stating facts on his goal scoring/assist, so your argument of a "one sided opinion on the player" falls flat. I already said that if he meant it then it's sure to boost his confidence which is great for the team.

EDIT: I just saw the video on the Chron site which is taken from the club's Youtube page. The goal highlights are exactly the same as what I provided earlier; no zooming in, different angle etc. You say "How on earth one can make a judgement from a video film which lacked any close up facility is beyond me" yet you are judging the goal on the exact same footage and the herald it as great! You truely are a nutcase, I cannot waste anymore time on you and hope others follow suit!

If you meant well simply agree it was a good goal , then at least you will be consistent with the commentators.

I don't agree with that, but Irchy and I have agreed we each have differing opinions and have moved on, an alien concept to you. Why don't you offer your opinion on the goal having seen the highlights rather than rely on radio commentators?
9  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: TRANMERE on: February 06, 2019, 09:26:38 am
We’ll have to agree to disagree - there wasn’t anyone else in the box and he’s playing as a lone forward so I don’t know who he was supposed to be flicking it to. It was a speculative effort but I’m sure he  intended it as an effort on goal.

Happy to agree to disagree, but will point out there is another player in the box (Powell) who I reckon he's aiming for. If Hoskins meant it and it boosts his confidence then that's only a good thing.
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: TRANMERE on: February 06, 2019, 09:02:20 am
Exactly this - he clearly intended to do it so it wasn’t a fluke, I don’t dispute that if he tried it 50 times he probably wouldn’t score many so in that respect there was a big element of luck to it but he deserves that luck for all the work he puts in. It’s a bit like with Cornell, people who are anti-Hoskins will continue to pick fault with anything he does. I’m just pleased for him and it is a bit of a two fingers to those who laughed at his air shot the other week.

I'm not picking fault with Hoskins, but there's no way he's going for goal from there with his back to goal! Unless his first goal has given him such immense confidence that he thinks he's Van Basten. More likely he's flicking it on to whoever was in the box.
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: TRANMERE on: February 06, 2019, 07:51:52 am
Both commentators said it was a great goal particularly Smith who commented his goal was well crafted and taken. You say it was a fluke the commentators thought otherwise.  Opinions....Opinions  - so difficult who to believe Lips Sealed

Judge it for yourself. But you're mad if you think he meant that...

Jim White has been on the phone and he’s told me we’re battling to get one sealed before the deadline. Striker, bit out of left field. Not an under 23 loanee.

Would be a bit of a coup and I’d imagine he’d be on a fair bit of ££
van veen?

Peter O'Rourke (Cobblers fan isn't he?) confirms we've had a bid turned down for Coulthirst. We do love an ex Posh player don't we

Chron quote: "Curle, who has plenty of funds at his disposal to strengthen the squad"

Who are they quoting?
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Morecambe (H) on: January 26, 2019, 09:04:04 am
is the game being shown on ifollow today?

https://www.ntfc.co.uk/ifollow/subscribe/

Not available for a one off purchase of £10 but not sure if it's only for selected matches.

I've bought a VPN so was planning on signing up to ifollow and watching from the UK, but the season pass has a red cross next to "watch matches live in HD"?
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: January Window - Rumours, Ins and Outs on: January 25, 2019, 10:39:36 am
Into the final week of the window. We've sold arguably our two best players and brought in two youngsters with zero football league pedigree. There must be more signings to come, unless KC's hands are tied with incoming movements?
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Cambridge on: January 20, 2019, 16:33:44 pm
Just looked at the highlights, that penalty was outside the area, and I don't think Pierre touched him. What was Facey doing for the winner??

I was about to post exactly this. Comical defending for thr 3rd!
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Carlisle United (H)- Saturday 12th January on: January 12, 2019, 19:07:44 pm
I bet the "Easier Games to Come" thread on the Carlisle forum is going into over drive tonight.

George cox left winger.

He's a left back according to the Brighton website

20  The Hotel End / Other Football & Sport / Re: FA Cup on: January 06, 2019, 10:22:51 am
Probably because the BBC can show highlights and goals as they happen when it's not a 3pm kick off.
