You have to remember GPC obsession with KC! His interpretation of KC comment ‘nothing will change’ is his rallying call and certainly suits his anti Curle agenda. It depends on how one wishes to interpret that KC line. He has Hoskins, Marshall and Lines to consider. He will Keep Oliver in as the battering ram! I think KC is tactically right to maintain that line of thought. As you hint KC is correct to maintain a potential hidden surprise in how he selects his team. To me Jim Halls comment are what be should be extolling on here.

No, I wouldn't say that he is 's***e'. As I said, he has proven that he is competent lower league manager who consistently guides teams to top 10 finishes. We've had plenty of managers who have been worse than that.

For me, the big question is whether he can be more than that or whether he has reached his limits with us. It took Wilder three seasons to produce a fluent, title-winning side. On the other hand, I would say the side he built in his second season with us was better and more tactically fluent than the side Curle has built this season (even though Wilder's team finished lower in the table).

I think Jim Hall is right that it was a pretty entertaining game. Curle's brand of direct hoofball is effective and can even be reasonably entertaining up to a point, but Cheltenham have exposed its limitations several times this year and its limitations would be even more exposed if we were to somehow fluke a promotion into League One. 

I would like to see Curle picking an attacking line up and having a real go at it on Monday. I would choose Marshall over Harriman and possibly Pollock over Watson. Hoskins will come back in (probably for Olayinka) and will make a bit of a difference if he can carry on his improvement in terms of end product. I would rather than lose 5-1 having given it a good go than lose 2-0 with a cautious approach.


 
Do you think that Hoskins could produce 2 shots like Olayinka's. Plus Olay will play better in the next game, IMO.

.....................................  Without Cheltenham doing WWF in their own penalty area (endorsed by the ref), we could have missed 4 pens.

What has World Wildlife Fund got to do with Cheltenham penalty area?

I think it is a protected area - by the referee.

Well, finally got around to watching the game. It was shown live on Foxtel in the early hours of the morning so I recorded it. I promised myself I wouldn’t find out the score before I watched it, woke up and couldn’t help myself so ended up not being able to face it. I feel like I have watched a different game to some of the descriptions I have read on here? I didn’t think there was anything between the 2 sides. I thought Cheltenham were probably at their best whilst we are capable of another level? We were ok, nothing more and I think Cheltenham were very very lucky to come away with a win, because we created by far the better chances. If we turn up with our A game and score early we’ll take these out no danger. If we go through the motions giving 90% we won’t. It’s a bit of lottery because of the long break, but IMO we aren’t anywhere near out of this and are more than capable of turning it around? Bit more energy, bit more positivity and a bit more fortunate in front of goal and we are going through. Trust me, I’m a doctor.

I’ve tried not to, some seem slightly more sceptical about our chances than me Evers?

The Cheltenham manager nailed it in his post match interview when he said "when you come here, you know what you're going to get"

What a shame for him that it got very un–nailed in the end. If only he had been so prophetic to the end.

Well done Town.. A lesson for many in humility and patience..

Duff's big mistake was probably changing his selection from the 1st leg. He looked absolutely shell shocked by our performance.
