Surely we want them wearing the vaguely claret one? Tongue

Never knew we had two number 37s... Tongue

Not a bad point, that. In spite of, rather than because of, our esteemed manager though by the sounds of things...

I'm sorry you had that unfortunate experience today Alan.  Roll Eyes Cheesy

Losing Facey handed them the initiative. Up until that point we looked well organised and were keeping possession well and creating chances. After Facey went off and Poole came on, having three at centre back and just Perreira on that right hand side left us ridiculously exposed because the latter has not got the positional sense or discipline to contribute anything defensively. No-one seemed to know their positional responsibilities when we went to three at the back in fairness, but we were particularly lax down the right flank. They were actively targeting our right hand side once they cottoned on to this and it was inevitable that was where their goal would come from. To his credit, JFH did recognise this (but too late to prevent the goal) and made the change that was required, but by this point we were panicking and playing hoofball, not the overlapping style that was creating chances in the first half. If Moloney had been on the bench to slot in where Facey had left off I think we'd have seen a different result. As Shoemaker said, JFH is still learning but unfortunately we do not have the luxury of time so he needs to learn quickly.

I thought Dominic Calvert-Lewin would go on to play at a decent level (higher than this level anyway) and possibly break into the Sheffield United team, but I never pictured him keeping Wayne Rooney out of a starting line-up within two years.

"We dug deep and saw the game through"..."there's a huge amount of belief that we can take from this"... Grin Is this guy for real?

Bit of a left-field suggestion and it's not a name I've seen come up so far, but Marcus Bignot might be a shout? Very harshly treated at Grimsby and deserves a proper go at football league management.

Really? Let's wait and see Roll Eyes Grin The match centre on the website is already labelling this a 'win'...
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Cambridge (H) - B Team / Chuckletrade Trophy on: August 29, 2017, 21:40:17 pm
The question is, if we manage to beat Cambridge's second string in a shootout after a turgid 1-1 draw, will we see the clueless one claiming this as some sort of victory? Will that be used in any way to justify him keeping his job past tomorrow morning?
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Cambridge (H) - B Team / Chuckletrade Trophy on: August 29, 2017, 21:30:37 pm
Looks like we might get a draw out of this one. Fantastic.

...from a goal down. Which means we've gone the whole of August without leading any game at any point, in nine hours of football in total.

Lethargic, slow, jittery players with a one-dimensional game plan from an inept manager. Admittedly I wasn't there to see the 5-0 at Bristol Rovers but for me, that today was worse than anything I saw under Page. We're going backwards at a rate of knots.

Not feeling particularly inspired right now. Undecided

If Cornell had had a shaky start, and dropped a couple of clangers, I'd be worried, but he hasn't. I'm willing to have faith at this point that Cornell will cut the mustard and I'm sure Coddington will be good enough to keep him on his toes.

Could you please tell me the relevance of this post? Thank you very much.

I think I'd rather be defending Premier League champions losing to Burnley than being rooted in the League One drop zone losing to Fleetwood...
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: NEWS: Cobblers sign Wycombe Wanderers defender Aaron Pierre on: July 21, 2017, 20:19:00 pm
He scored against us at Adams Park in the 1-1 draw during the 14-15 season didn't he?

Here is that goal - it was his first senior goal, funnily enough! After we'd flukily taken the lead I thought our luck was in, and I remember seeing that header hitting the back of the net and thinking, 'nah, it's not meant to be, we're going down'. Obviously the next game was Dagenham away, Ivan Toney was put in the starting XI and the rest is history.
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Highest fee ever paid for a ex cobblers player? on: July 14, 2017, 23:43:04 pm
Whether he was contracted to us or not, we played a part in getting him to where he is today. His first senior competitive appearance was for us, I know for a fact Spurs scouts made their judgements based largely on his performances for us, and he tweets about us whenever we're making headlines for whatever reason, from Cardoza to wining the League Two title. He was never one of ours but we played a part and I think he knows that.
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Welcome Yaser Kasim. on: July 05, 2017, 19:40:12 pm
The only thing I find a bit odd about this is, didn't we release our vice captain earlier this summer because of his international commitments? Then we go and sign another international who'll potentially miss a full month in the last season of his contract for the AFC Cup.

Don't get me wrong, if he's a class act he's worth signing just for what he can contribute in the games he is available. But it's strange to me that we weren't willing to budge a bit more to keep Zak.
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Welcome Ash Taylor on: July 05, 2017, 19:32:18 pm
For balance, if you look through that forum you'll see Zander Diamond's name repeatedly coming up in a 'worst ever XI' thread and someone on their transfer ins and outs thread saying Taylor and Diamond in defence together would 'be hilarious'. If Taylor and Diamond are of a similar standard then I'm more than happy with this.
