I can tell who's good or bad when I watch the game live. Dumbo.

Yet again someone that has a different opinion to you is wrong nevers!
....

Can you two literary geniuses please take a look at the Chron report on the game as it differs so much from yours. Mind you the reporter was there!

In my eyes this is not a difficult game. You obviously need possession to score and to stop them scoring. That means when our blokes are on the ball they needs 3 or 4 players making themselves available, and when the opposition have the ball our lot need to be up theirs arse in seconds. Too many times of late our players seem isolated with no options especially down the channel. Also far too much time and space is being given to the sides we are playing against, again a bit too often for my liking. All that says to me is some of our lot are not quite giving their all? Iím not saying they are taking the p1ss, just not quite up for it, with some obvious exceptions. Good result though, and some decent performances today so donít want to be too negative. Would have taken a point all day long before kick off.
Following on from this the back line is sitting too deep and there is just too much space between the team as a whole. A higher line comes at a risk but if we are going to press, which we need to more, itís necessary. How deep was the line for their first goal? I couldnít see exactly but if they have been 20 yards higher near halfway at least youíve got a chance of closing the player down. It was compounded by all the back peddling maintaining the space. It was the same for nearly every chance Scunny had. A higher one would allow us to press more and give more options in possession. Comes at a risk but it needs to be compressed between the last defender and Long or whoever and move cohesively forward and back as a unit. Thatís what I reckon anyway.

You really can be a self righteous twonk, sometimes Evers. No one would mind if you carried any authority but half the time you seem to have lost the thread of the conversation, so when you continually belittle and correct other posters it's a bit like watching Bill Gates get lectured on how to be successful in business by David Brent.

Which is what you do par excellence. Can you ever write a post without resulting in abuse? All I have done is asked the two posters have they read the Chron report. Your post is nothing more than a contrived effort to belittle me with abuse.

That's a bit rich. I've just read our respective last 20 posts. 4 of mine could be construed as being "abusive"; one was a slightly sarcastic response to Beds saying we had no money, the other 3 of which were aimed at you!
Of your last 20 posts, 12 of them are passive aggressive or argumentative towards other posters.

Grimes is clearly nowhere near the worst Cobbler ever but he is becoming a serious problem. His contribution beyond set pieces is negligible, yet Iíd bet he is the first name on the team sheet every week. His standard contribution (probably 7/10 times when in possession) is to pass it backwards to Taylor, who then launches it forward. Somebody please tell me what he contributes outside of taking every set piece (too often poorly)?

Those that think he should be playing need to wake up to our predicament, and I include the manager in this group. 7 pages here and barely a mention of relegation. Look at how Wimbledon and their fans celebrated their winner yesterday and you can tell they know where they are and are fighting for every point.

This is actually an extremely well-argued and pertinent post.

The problem with Grimes is that his technical aptitude and pedigree mask a worrying lack of genuine contribution. How many assists has he actually made this season? How many goals has he scored? How many significant tackles?

Crooks has some of the same problems, but a) I would argue that he's made more decisive contributions over the season (e.g. recently at AFW) and b) he's our player and is presumably more personally invested in the idea of us staying up.

For me, it's quite simple: we're scoring a decent amount of goals at the moment, but we're also conceding too many. The return of Facey will bolster the defence but using a more defensively minded midfielder in place of Grimes is the one move that would really make the difference.

Sorry, Mr Bungle I don't quite agree with you on Grimes.

The game was an interesting one. Defensively we played well, very well at times. It was the defence which earnt us the draw. I got the impression that JFH asked the midfield to play deep. Worked ok until their player ran 60 yds unchallenged which may not have happened if midfield were in a more normal midfield stance. Can undertand the criticism of Grimes but maybe it was more tactics Both Powell and Aribiyi played as virtual wing backs (some of the time). Aribiyi caught the eye with a couple of strong runs and I agree with many at the game that he should hold his place in the team. Long's performance was underlined by a goal - which proved invaluable! He ran around well but his actual performance was very much muted by inadequate service.
Had we had more attacking threat we would have probably won. I appreciated the way the side came into the game more effectively second half, they looked fit and demonstrated that with a consistent pressing game on and off the ball; which of course the camera does not always capture.  We did not look a relegation side but at the moment it's a close call. One saving is that there are more clubs involved in this particular relegation battle!

Sums our fans up. Blame Grimes for Taylor launching the ball forward. I hate the communal groan you hear at Sixfields when a player dares to pass the ball backwards in an attempt at keeping possessions.

Do you actually watch the games of just spout rubbish?

If Grimes is unable to pick a pass which is evident by his repeatedly passsing to Taylor  - what is he there for ?? - he doesnt repossess ; he doesnt screen ; he hasnt got a trick ; he doesnt beat anyone ; he doesnt drive into oppositions box ;
What does he do  .. shovelfoots freekicks and corners into the first man..."hits broadbrush areas" with deadballs which Im sure the majority of the other midfields could do anyway.

I always thought he was slightly better than that! Three recent assists are pretty useful. Nearly won us the game on Sat with his last min free kick. Still it's all about opinions.

Nearly won us the game?? It was as close to the goal as those blokes taking half time shots at the crossbar!! Woeful free-kick!!

Josh Morris nearly won Scunny the game with his freekick......well saved by O'Donnell.

You're not having a love-in with Grimes now like you did with Taylor are you Evers??  Grin

I'm confused. In this scenario, is he unable to pass the ball or has he passed to Taylor? Please confirm.

Weíve changed 9 players but the spine of the team has remained pretty much unchanged all season. Whilst itís full of talent I think thereís an element of flattering to deceive. It just seems a bit short on certain qualities. There are reasons we are where we are. Donít get me wrong, I think we are ok, but it seems that might not be enough?

I feel sometimes certain players are unfairly picked on/criticized and this latest scenario on Grimes is just that. He is surely better than one punter recently suggested. Three assists in recent games are not to be sniffed at. Frankly, the winning goal he scored at Gillingham lives long in the memory. He had shockers against Rochdale and Gillingham, but did a wee bit better at Sc***horpe.
