In all seriousness I don't think Drilling was suggesting the 3 saves by Cornell automatically meant he could hold his own in a promotion side - simply he did what was required of him in one game so clearly if he reproduces that form in the majority of games he could be number one in a promotion side - so as you rightly say it's all about context  Wink

My frustration is we look a million mile away from a promotion side and as oft repeated here Cornell may not be the best keeper in the division but way down on our list of issues to resolve.
cornell done that week in week out last season and has don it again so far this season but people are still on his back not the strikers

Looks like Bolton may well be kicked out of the league too, so no teams from L2 would be relegated if they and Bury don't survive the end of the week. Safe for another year...


If that happens, 2 will be relegated from L1...4 up from L2 as usual and 2 down from L2.

Do you mean team management or club management (to be fair probably both) - are we going to be the next Bolton/bury?

I'm pretty sure I read on the BBC that if Bury or Bolton go under there will be less relegations from League 2.

There is actual a statement from the FL (couldn't find the link) but you are correct - if one club is expelled only one relegation place and if two go no relegation from L2.

I was told KC was eating in hospitality before the Macclesfield game! Surely he needs to be with the players not the punters pre match. This is only anecdotal so happy to be corrected.

Right, haven't commented for a while but my thoughts on Saturday, which probably echo everyone else.

Bunney is not good enough, Mcwilliams is not a Full Back. We cant rely on Goode's blocks and Cornell's saves. Which makes me wonder why we didn't get decent cover in either full back position.

We seemed happy to pass the ball around our own back four and back to keeper, Col U let us as they knew we couldn't pass the ball on the floor up the pitch and just hoofed it instead.
Oliver is terrible.
Hoskins- I have defended but was shocking at Col U.
Lines - Couldn't find a Cobblers player with any pass, but moaned about the ball passing him by.
Adams - Not being used the right way, he doesn't have blistering pass or silky skills, he is just good a beating a man and crossing in the right position, get him there. He spent more helping mcwilliams and then have to carry the ball 30 - 40 yards. He is 30 something and it was roasting.

I get that we are using a target man and we get the ball forward too him but there are easier ways, the amount of fans moaning at the minute that we are playing Hoofball, but then moan when we pass it around that they want it lumped forward.

This is all because of Curles negative slow tactics, Col U were so much faster at getting the ball forward into dangerous areas either running, passing it or hoofing, we just laboured in every area, and didn't seem to have any go allowing them to get back close down and make it look easy.

Col U were not that good, which is worrying as this must make us terrible.

Good assessment but disagree on (a not totally fit) Oliver who for me wins more balls and overall looks more dangerous than Smith.

Kevin Wilson used to do that when he was manager. He guided us to a promotion. So it was good management when he did it.
