Stunning result, missed the build up as I went to the 20/20 debacle at the MCG, saw the line up and figured I was in for the day from hell. Following my plea for 5 at the back against Rochdale I can safely add punditry to the list of things I canít do.

Totally agree, although it wasn't what I would have chosen!  Grin

Very comfortable away win. Even when they equalised I was pretty comfortable that we'd come away with at least a point.

We looked like a far better team than them when we were able to get it down and play. Suspect they're in for a tough run in.

Well played Cobblers, as a neutral I felt that you deserved the win.

If you couldn't make the game today, or want a recap on a brilliant win, check out my Groundhopping video which contains all 4 goals:



Tell me what you think! I'm also going to the match on Tuesday, so hopefully you play as well as this next time!

Great result and a massive win. Saw the highlights and JJOT looked absolutely immense while Crooks looked like the player we were so excited to sign.

Also enjoyed that video, thanks for sharing it. The two count attack goals in the second half were both excellent.

Me and my group had to settle with the uncovered part of the terrace, and ironically had the best view at Kinsmeadow that we've ever had  Grin today was a bloody great performance.

Crooks and JJOT  particular were both immense. And credit to both Grimes and Hoskins. I've criticised both on several occasions but they were both brilliant.

Very decent win.

Back four looked solid throughout, which is a testament to JFH's coaching given that three of them (including the keeper) are new signings.

We struggled to keep possession at times, but Crooks grew in influence as the game wore on and made some good driving runs. Grimes had some neat and tidy moments without really imposing himself. I still wonder whether we'd look better with McWilliams in the engine room as a proper defensive midfielder to give the others a platform to play.

Hoskins and Powell certainly justified their selection today. Sammy's work rate was excellent and Powell's finish was coolness and composure personified. Would still like both of them to get more crosses in if we're going with a proper 4-4-1-1, but I think that both should keep their place over Ariyibi and Perreia due to their superior defensive discipline.

Van Veen made some clever runs, but it will take time for our midfielders to get on his wavelength. He looks to be the kind of striker who plays on the shoulder of the last defender and thrives on through balls. Time will tell, but he put himself about and did a fairly decent job for the team.

AFCW looked poor. Surprised to see that their fans want rid of Ardley, though - surely they're still over-achieving relative to their budget?

Well we defended well, but Wimbledon were clueless at times. Playing into that drizzle and wind first half was not pleasant. Hoskins played very well. Powell he did score the vital 3rd goal and he slotted into defensive duties well. Cant quite bring myself to say he had a cracking game; to me he seems to have lost some of his pace and really should have roasted their full back more than he did. Will he play on Tuesday? Perhaps JFH may want a more offensive player. We were slightly lucky to be ahead first half as Wimbledon missed at least one decent chance; should have been buried. The second half after they scored was fearing the worst as we lost control of midfield giving the ball away losing tackles. Then we got back into the game thanks to Grimes, JJOT and Crooks who led a couple of decent charges up field causing havoc . JJOT now in his element making the second and passing an unselfish pass out to Powell who slotted home.  It was not a classic game; Wimbledon and the weather saw  to that. I was not impressed with their goalie who should have done better with the third goal(imo!).  It was in truth a gritty win carved out by the side against a truly hoof ball side. We need to beat some one decent before we can be more confident of safety.
The support did well in inhospitable conditions plenty of fanatical support especially by the knot of supporters out in the open and near to away stand which incidentally had quite a few vacant seats. Strange that.

Hopefully now Jimmy will stick with the formation that suits us so well. As yesterday showed, even players a little out of form or being questioned after last week's debacle can slot in and be effective. Man for man our squad is now of top 10 quality... set them up properly and they will win more than they lose - as shown in recent weeks.

A massive improvement on last week.

Slightly baffling selection (for me and a lot of others at least) of Powell/Hoskins out wide showed JFH knows his players, and in the 4-4-1-1 formation we looked comfortable again.

I thought the first half was pretty awful, the weather and prima donna ref certainly didn't help matters but we showed signs of being effective on the counter attack. Van Veen has good movement, once everyone knows where he is going will be a huge asset for us.

JJOT was so lucky to get the pen, and Crooks was lucky to still be on the pitch by half-time. Once they got there goal in the first few minutes of the second half, we did well to soak up a fifteen minute or so spell of pressure without conceding. We looked reasonably solid although but could not get hold of or keep hold of the ball and they did have chances.

Once the second goal went in, we looked a different team. Crooks took the game by the scruff of the neck and showed why we paid good money to bring him here. Hopefully we can see more of that version of him. Powell and Hoskins worked hard as well as looking to get forward, such a calm finish from Powell for the goal.

Overall, I felt happy enough (and cold and wet) when I left. Getting the three points was the most important thing and luckily results around us went okay. Still need something on Tuesday, that will be a much tougher game.

Such an important win after the Rochdale fiasco. Let's hope everyone can keep it going into the Gills match. Nice homemade video above - interesting perspective.
