Re: Making HMS YouKnowWhat ship-shape: Winter 20/21 transfer thread

Two more signings and another that can play LB. This whole signing players and announcing them as LB's or RB's is a bit ridiculous this season. Hopefully these two players will come good. Some tidy finishes from Lee from what i've seen on the highlights.

Re: We've all come a long way: Crawley (H) Sat 2 Jan @ 3pm

What a difference a goal makes. Would be a much better complexion if we had scored. Had enough shots nearing the end of the match. Seemed like it took the opposition scoring for us to actually get going. We shouldn't have to be one nil down for us to start attacking the opposition at pace. We're goi...

Re: We've all come a long way: Crawley (H) Sat 2 Jan @ 3pm

Seemingly too pedestrian going forward for the most part. Last 5 minutes there's been a notable shift in tempo but we're still suffering from the fullbacks being too deep. We don't want the ball hoofed forward and we're struggling to get any wing play because our wide men are starting so deep. Which...

feck off Zara Knight was never top drawer!!
12 seasons in the top flight with 2 international honours would suggest he wasn't that bad. Not a fan personally but he had some good games which were massively overshadowed by the shockers he had.

Re: Vale of tiers: Port Vale (H), Division Four, Sat 6 Dec @ 3pm

Is Ricardo Santos the new Zat Knight?

Can be absolutely top drawer at times but at others he's massively suspect?

Either way, today was a damn shame.

Re: Vale of tiers: Port Vale (H), Division Four, Sat 6 Dec @ 3pm

Well, disallowed goals and hitting the bar probably took the impetus out of our comeback. Bolton at least showed a desire to get back into it. I'm hoping this is an off day and not a guide into how to beat Bolton going forward.

At least it's been interesting. Shocking at times, great at others (the finish for our third for example).

Every time this commentator mentions us getting back into it they score two. Shut up man :lol:
He thinks we’ll peg ‘em back to 6-6! 😂
Nice to see some optimism at least :D
There you go DSB, not everyone is miserable :D
Haha, lets hope he is right. It's 3-6. Wow.

Re: Vale of tiers: Port Vale (H), Division Four, Sat 6 Dec @ 3pm

I suppose the question of what happens when we play a decent side has been answered. Well and truly discraceful. Not entirely sure we can call Port Vale a decent side. I suspect a lot of this is down to mentality. Everyone is up for it at Vale's end and no-one was up for it at Bolton's end. Both si...

Re: Vale of tiers: Port Vale (H), Division Four, Sat 6 Dec @ 3pm

Definitely a first watching four subs coming out. Flat back four would've been beneficial here to counter the threat against Kioso. Vale are pushing high and wide and we're doing the same with our wingbacks leaving a massive gap. Last thing we want is another drubbing in the same manner as the Accr...

Re: Man up if you wanna go up. Bradford City (H). EFL League 2. 7pm KO

When was the last time Jak Hickman got on the field? Peter am has been quality don’t get me wrong but feel for the lad as he was looking decent! I'm in the same frame of mind here. Seems like a clear indication that Evatt wanted quality of delivery brought in and Kioso seems like a very astute acqu...

Pretty sure that's not offside!

Re: Haven't Seen You Her-Bi-Vore. Inaugural Meat-ing. Forest Green Rovers (H) Sat 12/09/20 15:00 (Division 4)

Seemed like the whole passing game went out the window today in favour of a more route one approach. I suspect that Evatt is not setting the team out to do that and it's gone against his wishes somewhat. Understandably the players are warning to change it up given the last two results and everyone ...

Re: Closed Doors - Episode One: The Bantam Menace - Bradford C (H), 3:00pm, 05/09/20 (League Cup)

I was happy to see improvement today. Some sloppy mistakes at the back which we were rightly punished for, vast majority of the game I thought we were the ones in control. No real cutting edge up front sadly, seemed like an exercise in ball retention and not one of putting it in the net. Given time ...
