Connollys decision making, first touch and footballing brain are non-existent.

Lewis offers nothing in middle of the pitch and Pollock should be playing instead.

Back four look good and Koiki is miles better than Mills.

Rose deserved his goal, should be starting every week.

Good 3 points.

Find it very easy to disagree on Lewis and also Connelly ! Have to assume you were not there!

Assume wrong.

Interesting you based the fact I was not there on the two points you disagree with. Kind of arrogant no?

The rest of it I presume you do?

Keeper did what he needed to, commanded his box but caught the Scunny distribution bug in the second half with a number of kicks sailing into touch.
Defence looked solid, centre backs not troubled with full backs pretty involved going forwards. This meant that the midfield pairing of Lewis and Flores were hardly noticed by me, we played more with width than going through the middle.
Etete a handful but well done Danny Rose on todays performance, put himself about, got the red card with a somewhat theatrical dive (not saying it wasn't a foul but he made the most of it), Hoskins involved in bits and pieces but Pinnock less so.

Connoly looked quick when he came on and ran at people, stumbling through on more than one occasion but little end product. Kabamba barely got a touch and McWilliams shored up the middle in his short stint.

Overall, not really troubled, large parts of the game non-descript, we looked good when we injected a bit of pace into proceedings such as the last minute chance in the first half and the opening goal. Otherwise a bit too cautious and probing for my liking. Scunny no great shakes although number 7 (Green) stood out as a level above the rest of them.

Very little atmosphere, not helped by smaller away followings and them being put in the East Stand now too...... three points on the board though, I guess that's what its all about!

Our defence looked really solid again today and this might take us a long way this season. Was worried at half time that we wouldn't be able to break them down even with ten men. Although we should have scored more goals it was pleasing to see we really did take the game to Scunny in the 2nd half and it was good to see plenty of crosses going in and chances being created. Disappointed that we sat back after the goal and gave them a sniff. That was completely unnecessary as they didn't look like they knew how to cope when we attacked, and created nothing at all until we sat back.

Still, overall a good performance, and hopefully the chances created and goals scored will give the midfield and forward line a bit more confidence. Great performance from Rose today, but it's the first in a long time so I won't be getting carried away yet. I think Koiki looks a very decent player too and offers more than Mills at left back.

A more than welcome win. Evens till the sending off , which looked fully justified with Rose bustling through. Went strangely flat after that for the rest of the first half - but the pace was upped in the second half with the width of the pitch used and it became a succession of attacks and chances. Lewis should have buried Etete's cross after a clever run and cross - but it was all put right with a burst of speed from Sam and Rose stretching to score. Connolly had a few good gallops late on and should have been rewarded with a goal - but it fell to Sam to actually net it. Koiki looked steady enough defending and a handful in attack - his passing not always great though.
Midfield doesn't look right to me - maybe Brady is spoiled for choice - but hope it gets sorted and somebody starts showing a bit of authority. Could do with a Roy Hunter type of player to lead the charge - or perhaps that's a thing of the past.

Took a bit of breaking down, but none the less a decent result. Itís a pleasure to see the team trying to make connecting runs and short give and go passes. I thought Hoskins looks so at his level now. Rose was spot on today. Great result. Well done to Brady, Colin and the lads.

An interesting fact, David Bower was in attendance today, maybe fancied a day out from Dubai or read into that what you will.

Half of him is almost everywhere now due to the lack of diet

Let's hope we can somehow find room for both when Mills returns.
Also agree that McGowan had a good game. He's got big boots to fill in the right back role.

Koiki and McGowan both did ok today but on the flip side Scun Thorpe offered nothing much going forward so not the sternest of tests but you can only play whatís in front of you.
Happy with the points return so far. UTC

Just surprised that you dismissed the two players concerned in your summary. The one thing Connolly did was to inject a bit of pace which in fact led to the second goal which we needed... don't you think! Easy to dismiss him as 'with no end product' but ignore the pluses. As for Lewis he did ok does the easy things efficiently, backed up by two terrific tackles second half in front of the West Stand opposite row approx N140/N180. The point is for me the two players put in reasonable shifts as they say on here. Connolly will trouble L2 defences as he is so damn quick. Talking a about speed, our right back astonished some of us in the West Stand with the speed he raced into attack/covered back! Roberts basically untroubled, with Kioki putting in his trademark surges upfield. As mentioned by someone else, does not always end with a promising pass. Thought he was a bit lose in his marking role too. Lewis workman like, covers a lot of ground and works hard. Flores did some good passing and certainly noticed him more today. Hoskins did well and was relieved to see him latch on to scramble the ball home. Thought Connolly shot had crossed the line? Ete caused them issues whilst he was on, might have scored once but felt he was falling over or slipping a little too often at times. Rose quite rightly man of the match and thought he was in the penalty area too when the guy was sent off. Kabamba offered little, funked some direct challanges and can't head the ball for toffee. Summary well we won more comfortably than the score suggests and above all Rose scored from open play and no wonder his teammates mobbed him after his first goal in 30. Like seeing records broken!
One last thought, at times we played like a team expecting to win with too much sideways and back movements. The injection of pace put an end to that dilly dallying.

I'd be interested, in your opinion, on what you read into it.
