Re: Sal-Destroying. Home. Friday 13th. 7:45. On the tele.

I enjoyed that match. We showed grit and looked so much more organised than we have previously. We need to do it again when the cameras aren't on us, now. If we go out and play like crap again against Stevenage then it'll just show that they can do it when they want to. Gilks and Evatt both went on ...

Great block Kioso.
Bodies on the line is great to see. There have been a few proper tackles in this game too. Glad to see the lads up for it.

Re: Sal-Destroying. Home. Friday 13th. 7:45. On the tele.

Its the biggest game of the season so far because of how poor we have been I would certainly agree & losing to Salford would be extremely embarrassing & I'm not disputing how tragic & shite we are - but seriously our cup final ? as I said an absolutely ridiculous comment. As I said in the comment, ...

Re: Sal-Destroying. Home. Friday 13th. 7:45. On the tele.

The below quote comes from our esteemed manager: “Tutte is a very good communicator, sees danger in a defensive role better than the others do . Whereas Tom White will probably receive the ball from the back and build attacks better than Tutte – but that’s not to say he can’t do that." What the fec...

Re: All change at Crewe....

As a side note anyone else think we could get Hickman in by pushing Kioso in the middle and having Fonz on the left replacing Gordon? Or am I being mental? Fonz is only of the few bright sparks, he can keep on doing what he's doing! Yup. You don't take the guy who just scored a brace and put him at...

Re: All change at Crewe....

Evatt on Crellin: “What I said before to Billy after the Cambridge game, we got a response out of him. Sometimes with young players, they are going to be inconsistent. They are not the finished article. Billy is a fantastic kid with a great attitude. He is going to be a top keeper but right now we’...

I don't think he'll get sacked for a long time. Too much invested.
Ordinarily, yes. But boards do weird things when there is publicity.

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

If I were Evatt I'd not want my job, and entire self-image, reliant upon the abilities of a 38-year-old Matt Gilks. The alternative appears to be a drowning kid barely out of his teens. Or, indeed, a teenager he's adjudged not worthy of taking one of seven slots on the bench. It's not entirely Crel...

Jesus, 2 wins out of 15 under Evatt. He has to be under some pressure?
Ordinarily, in a run like that, you'd be able to point to games where we were unlucky to have lost. I can't think of one. I can only think of games we were bloody lucky not to have lost.

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

That's the thing, though, I don't think the keeper issue was unavoidable - I think it came from arrogance. I think Evatt genuinely believed we'd be playing teams off the park and Crellin would be able to learn in relative comfort. If Crellin got injured we could stick Alexander in net for a bit and ...

Sack the c*nt.
For losing 3-2 to a team from the division above us when all their goals came from individual errors? Probably not.

Find myself hoping Crellin gets injured. Couple of months out and we can bring in emergency keeper loan. Either that or the team coach runs the prick over.
No.

Re: All change at Crewe....

We've been poor, no denying that, but without Crellin in this side we have a good chance of winning this.

There's no longer any defending him, nor any positives about having him here.

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

There's a school of thought amongst some managers that goalkeepers aren't all that important. The idea being that so long as the rest of the team plays well the goalkeeper isn't needed much. I do wonder if Evatt expected his team to play such good possession football that he didn't really need to "w...

BTW Santos looked half arsed for the goal IMO.
Santos looks like he's carrying a niggle to me. He's not stretching for things. Looks like he might be protecting himself.
