Take a look at the behind the goal video's from Wolvo and/or Deepcut - do you wish to retract your statement. I am talking about their second goal.

Ah well clearly a miscommunication as I was talking about the first. Yes fair enough it isnít quite down the middle (the first) going on that video. Hold my hands up. Still think a better, or larger, keeper like Ward stops at least the first one.

Have studied the highlights and the ball went in well right of centre not to far off from the right post! So from the highlights I cannot quite understand how you say Ďmiddle of the goal netí!


You're kidding right? It went down the middle, look at the shadow for goodness sake!

You asked for it Matey - yr opening statement is a classic of misplaced justification for yr anti Cornell crusade. Talk about  self inflicted damage!

To be fair, the ball was struck central of the goal. Cornell started in the center of goal. The ball ends up in the middle of the goal net, with Cornell finishing even outside the goalpost.

I really don't know why he should be exempt for criticism for effectively diving out of the way of the ball?

I felt Cornell could have saved both Carlisle goals. Give Lewis Ward the starting spot.
5  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 08, 2018, 19:04:08 pm
We better well have someone ready lined up to replace him. Can't help but feel that we missed out on Nicky Law this summer who went to Exeter on a free transfer; he would have been perfect.
6  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 07, 2018, 17:19:39 pm
I think heís only just back in training going by the picture on the club Twitter today.

I hope he's ready to play on Saturday as I wasn't sure about Odoffin's performance at all against Lincoln. Defended reasonably, good in the air, but far too slow moving the ball on and looked unsure when to overlap the winger. Facey the better and more experienced fullback.
7  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 07, 2018, 14:11:40 pm
And nor did you in the bit I quoted. Its clear through that Austin will want to make some changes so we all can claim that inside knowledge
Players will always be made to stay if the club want to keep them, even if valuations are met
Again nor did you, but both KT and DA have stated interest for our best players, of which he is clearly one.
All of the above are blindingly obvious statements

Be careful, he called me a "d*ckhead" for pointing out the exact same thing  Grin

If Crooks was to leave I think bringing back McGugan would be a good move. He'd probably be properly unfit to start off with, like last time, but my goodness he'd terrorise league 2 with his ability! His set pieces too are surely worth 15+ goals a season.

I'm pretty happy with our squad! Reckon that, as a couple of other posters have suggested, wingers will be used as inside forwards - as in they will cut inside often. This is usually only an effective tactic when you have good central midfielders to control possession and interchange possession with the wingers and forwards to work the ball towards the goal. Also out-and-out wingers who run down the wing and deliver the ball straight in (a la Hackett) tend to go with big target men strikers to aim for (see Charlie Wyke, Jabo Ibehre, John Akinde etc.). I think we'll look to play possession football to work the ball into the net, being patient with it and not rushing it. The second goal against Barnet was a good example!


Roll on Saturday!
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 02, 2018, 23:27:21 pm
You could prob pick someone up on the racecourse that would provide a better option than hoskins and waters wide. Bit of an exaggeration but pretty much anything would be an improve on the 1 half decent wide player we have.

Ridiculous! You don't actually believe that do you? Looking forward to Saturday's game?  Grin
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 01, 2018, 17:01:55 pm
Does anyone have a Blackpool supporting friend? Be interesting to see what they have made of Joe Bunney so far!
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: August 01, 2018, 17:00:42 pm
I'm starting to lean this way too. Crooks out, proper winger in could make us look stronger overall.

I disagree, I personally think he's one of best players and think we would really miss him. A midfield partnership of Crooks and McWilliams against Barnet the other night looked very strong. Agree that we could do with a good winger but I don't see Austin using Crooks on the wing so wouldn't really be a like-for-like replacement. Lose Crooks and our midfield looks a lot weaker. Really hope he stays!

Iíve resisted your comments so far, but as you continue to act a complete p**k, get your facts right before you start acting the keyboard warrior with me.
At no point have I said 5 players were heading out the door .
D***head

Please explain how I'm a "keyboard warrior"? I was calling you out for constantly jabbering on as if you were telling us something we didn't know about certain players leaving, only to say a day after that nothing is certain - in other words just hypothesising.

Oh and thanks for the last line - showing your true colours
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: July 30, 2018, 23:07:36 pm
I really can't remember us ever signing a player who has been as difficult as Kasim. Surely has to go down as one of our worst ever signings? I'll save any rude expletives for others to use for him, but one thing you could certainly call him is unprofessional.
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Predict the squad vs Lincoln on: July 30, 2018, 19:18:42 pm
Just to be clear , I am not saying 5 will leave like others have .
5 want to go but some will be told they canít and others probably wonít get anyone to meet their wage demands / transfer fee.
I personally think 2 will go from the 5.

Changed your tune! You were telling us they were certain to head out the door the other day  Roll Eyes
Please spare us the ramblings
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ins and Outs - Summer 2018 on: July 30, 2018, 19:16:09 pm
Kassim, the unphotographable one, seen going into a meeting with James Whiting this afternoon. Accompanied by a big fat guy who looks nothing like an agent, but then again.


Mutual termination?
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Predict the squad vs Lincoln on: July 29, 2018, 23:19:00 pm
The team I think Austin will choose to play Lincoln based on his friendly sides (in 442 formation):

                   Ward
Odoffin Taylor Pierre Buchanan
Powell Crooks McWilliams Waters
           Williams Hoskins

Bench: Cornell, Turnbull, C. McWilliams, Foley, Bridge, O'Toole, Van Veen



The team I would select (with everyone available for selection) (in wide 4231 formation):

                 Ward
Facey Taylor Pierre Buchanan
       O'Toole McWilliams
Powell      Crooks      Morias
              Van Veen

Bench: Cornell, Turnbull, Odoffin, Foley, Hoskins, Waters, Williams



As always its a game of opinions but we really do have great strength in depth this season!
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Lincoln game on: July 29, 2018, 22:58:37 pm
Well put ...we have some midgets in McCartan Eardley Toffolo Anderson Pett Andrade Frecklington....Rhead is an old school brute but he is now 5th choice striker..Akinde is big but quick ..Green is more sprinter than giant ..Ellis Chapman a tall boy-child ..Bostwick is a Viking beast and make no excuses for the 2 CBs and keeper being tall(or will we play all 3 with raiding wingbacks)

What i found last season was teams we beat said it was direct route one blah blah ..they do play high octane but unless Rhead (effective but i think it wastes the talent we have elsewhere) plays it is evolving in to a speed game - we are very effective from set pieces and Wharton is so worth a first goalscorer bet at 22-1 or 25-1 all season long from Toffolo and Eardleys crosses - 18 months ago we had a ragtag bunch of fit strong workers to escape the National League ...only one of them may play next Saturday as the Cowleys have recruited a bunch of League One players and replaced them all

You have a very strong squad, I for one would be very happy for a point on the opening day of the season!

How's Eardley for you? He seemed solid if not spectacular at Northampton
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ex Cobblers in League Two on: July 28, 2018, 15:12:19 pm
All about opinions. Taylor is good in the air, but take a good look at his distribution and general footwork next time you're at a match.

As for Scottish Prem sides wanting him, a top SPL player has just joined a team in the Conference.

You mustnít be able to remember the game where Zander played at full back then  Grin

today is the day


Is that ego being nicely massaged?
