Bearing in mind all we did was hook the ball forward at every given opportunity , it was pretty obvious a target man needed to come on . Lines , Macwilliams and Hoskins hardly touched the ball other than when tracking back .
Football isnít just about going forward and defensively it was excellent but jeez ....

I got the impression from those near me last night that Turnball's substitution was part due to his earlier booking in the first half.
Last night KC got his substitutions/tactics correct.

Iíve noticed how when we lost to Bradford so many on here were slating KC for his poor substitutions but not seeing many people give him props for the Smith sub yesterday and change to 4-4-2 which enhanced us massively. Funny that.

Decent second half performance. Great play for the goal and brilliant defending for the last 20 mins. Thought we looked decent with 4-4-2 and I wouldnít mind seeing Smith and Willo combo again in the future. Weíre on the charge.

Ive just seen the most ironic emoji since the stupid things were created.

The above perfectly sums up why nobody is here now or bothers reading anymore. Mr condescending and the village idiot.

The most ironic part is you. We have no shortage of negative, stuck in the past types like you. It's the go getting forward thinkers that we would like to see more of.

One thing I can rely on. We will never lose your nuggets of wisdom, whilst I post.  Grin Grin There's a few more emojis to brighten up your day.

You use the term 'isolation'. And that leads me onto my point. The guy doesn't show, EVER, any degree of discretion. He's a non human VAR - he never spends a split second considering his actions, just reaches for his card as if he gets a kick out of it.

45 reds in his last 139 games apparently. Source James H (chron - on twitter)

I think it was Goode's booking. Where he slid in and caught their forward going sideways across the ede of the penalty box? Correct free kick, but a yellow? Technically yes, but first offense? Didn't mean it? Many ref's would have given a lecture...

For the sake of balance, their player who 'fouled' Adams. That wasn't a bloody booking, Adams totally 'bought it'. Just like their forward did with Smiths 2nd.

I do recall Turnbulls one but it wasn't at all obvious why he was booked, it was in the midfield area, ball went out for a throw in and he just waltzed over and booked him! No free kick was given so gord knows! Probably called him a c*** which if so, you couldn't blame him!  Grin

There were quite a few last night where he used discretion and didn't reach for his card.
Goode wasn't cautioned for the foul tackle, he said something to Mr Breakspear as he walked away.  Goode needs to learn that although he has the armband, it doesn't provide him with a licence to continually 'lecture' the officials as he does.
Saw the one on Adams, he sold him and it was bought.  It happens all of the time.  All footballers are cheats.  Grin
Turnbulls was when he brought down their player moving across the edge of the box about to pull the trigger.  He probably didn't need to bring him down but it was worthy of a caution.
I thought that the officials had a good game, but I look at it through a different set of eyes to many.  There are many that are a great deal worse than Mr Breakspear, he's probably been the best we have seen this season so far.
Hopefully my explanations help.

The Vadaine, Goode and McWilliams cautions last night were just genuine stupidity and mandatory. I can't remember Turnbulls?

Completely agree with this.

Wouldn't dream of defending Breakspear, but we 'played' him absolutely dreadfully last night.

The full backing of the town of Northampton and the club supporters are all we need.
Thomas wont be here forever and then we'll start being competitive in L1.
Melbourne hasn't got a clue🤣🤣
Donít forget about the support of those all important well wishers?

Either of the centre backs. Im going to give it to Wharton, the bridesmaid of the partnership but massively underrated by many I reckon!

Really enjoyed last nights game. The presence of 'Charles' ensured that at some point, the atmosphere would be rampted up and as predictable as day, Smiths sending off was the catalyst for the away end to turn the volume up a notch or two and 'sing our way to victory'.

First half, poor. But what became apparent to me after 30 minutes was that to beat them, we needed to go with two lumps up top and smash the ball down their throats. I said at half time, that point. Im no fan of the long ball game usually, but last night it was needed. I was pleasantly surprised by the half term change (usually managers don't make such a change until the hour mark if their team isn't losing!) and within minutes, it got us up and running. After which, it seemed just a matter of time before we scored a 2nd goal and strolled our way to victory despite a non entity of a first 45 minutes.

Then, enter Smith. Again. First booking, must of been something he said? 2nd booking, I reckon any NORMAL ref would have given him a final warning. And only those NORMAL refs whom would have booked him, first time round. But not Charles, who couldn't wait to brandish the red card and no doubt spunk all over the pitch where the incident happened.

After which, we went backwards. And more backwards. And even more backwards. But KC had obviously done his homework. Let them cross it as many times as they want, just make sure the box is packed to clear the ball out. Our full backs moved inside so much I thought they were going to swap wings. Countless percentage balls, corners, crosses all went in, but if they won more than 10% of the first balls Id be surprised. And when they did, it didn't matter because we'd mop up 2nd time round.

A siege mentality is starting to emerge. This season, our team reminds me of Lincoln City's, last season. Lots of little things. Horrible, almost thug like away from home. Great football at home. Two different teams.  I really am starting to believe it could be a good one. Cant wait until Saturday!

Stevenageís insistence on passing the ball to the full backs from the goalkeeper was hilarious . They clearly were way short of being able to accomplish this and it was only going to be a matter of time before Williams intercepted them and scored , before the forced change.
Their shooting was also appalling .
I bet they are happy only one team are going down .
