Have to presume yet again you were not at the game. Due to Stockports robust style of play which left Hoskins limping in the first half it took the side awhile to adapt to a similar style of play. Under the circumstances was relieved come half time that we were still only a goal down but more importantly had no serious injuries. Come half time JB made the right choices bringing on Bowie and Hylton. The game suited Hylton who dished out as good as he got and thereby changed the dynamics of the game. Hoskins goal was sheer class which gave me the impression it was a half volley. Bowie played his part well often out performing young Leonard. There has been games this season where the circumstances have not suited Hylton and today JB identified one. So for me its horses for causes, in my view Appéré was simply fouled by Horsfall and others as soon as he got the ball. Good substsitutions by JB through out second half.
Half volley?

I’d like to know where Stockport are spending all their money - granted Horsfall, Camps, Sarcevic and Madden are probably on a fair whack but the rest of their squad looks pretty ordinary.

I was thinking that too. A look at the pen pictures of their players (such as they are these days) in the programme reveals that nearly all their players come from non league. I expected Stockport to win this league with all the money and potential they have but looking at their squad there is nothing much to frighten any team in L2 this season. I thought Horsfall was their best player yesterday, and the lad who got sent off did ok too in the first half. I wouldn't particularly want any of the others in our squad. Also Madden their most experienced player is way past his best.

As you say where has Challinor spent the money?

23 points from the first 10 games is a fantastic start to the season yet amazingly we are 5 points behind Leyton Orient. I said at the start of the season that the fixture list had been kind for our opening games and that we could possibly go through our first 10 games unbeaten, which we would have but for a very poor performance against a mediocre Doncaster side.
However, I am not going overboard yet as we have so far played all of the current bottom 4 and only 1 of the top 7. By the end of October we will have played another 7 games and have a much clearer picture of where we are, we have away games at Swindon, Walsall, Leyton Orient and Stevenage and home games against Salford, Sutton and Newport County so 3 games against sides in the current top 7.
If we achieved 3 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats from these 7 games at the end of October we would have 34 points from 17 games, a healthy 2 points per game but it is possible we may do better than that.

You do know the difference between a volley, a half volley, and a strike from a ball that's rolling on the grass?

Watch the highlights back, and then tell me what Sammy's was.  Grin

I was impressed by Hoskins goal and the impression it gave me of a half volley, which of course it was not. I saw Hoskins score a half volley against Oldham, last game of the season back in 2018/19. It was the technique which impressed me. Because I said it gave me the impression it does not follow it was. Was hoping you might have grasped fact that I mentioned the word impression......

Impressed by his technique he showed in his goal on Saturday but agree my impression or recollection was misleading as did not assume that some would take it literally. Must learn not to express misleading thoughts.

Been watching the highlights again. For me the difference between the 2 sides is summed up in 2 incidents. Look how at how Stockport close down Sammy for his goal, then look at how we close down Myles Hippolyte for his chance on 85 minutes. It stands out a mile who wanted it more.

Sorry to be a little Evers on this but...you have stated that you only watched the highlights. By definition, how can the two sides be summed up by two incidents only from watching several chosen 'incidents' There are in a nutshells and in a nutshells but that is some nutshell there!

I didn’t state I only watched the highlights. I also watched the whole game live at the time, just happened to watch the 7 minute highlights on the Stockport forum and was reminded of the 2 events. Sorry Cat you’re no Evers, he would never make a miscalculation of this nature during his diatribes.
