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

I don't understand how a service people have to pay to use is so bad. It's embarrassing.

Re: Cam v Croal a Punting Challenge: League 2, Cambridge v Bolton (A) Saturday October 24 14:00

I also don't get the logic behind the decision to not put a sub keeper on the bench. Yesterday we had Mascoll and Gordon as subs, and surely there's no chance they're both going to get used, so why run the risk of Crellin picking up a knock and having to put an outfielder in net? I find it baffling...

Re: Cam v Croal a Punting Challenge: League 2, Cambridge v Bolton (A) Saturday October 24 14:00

.. or Mr Phoenix did. If Evatt did not then he should say so rather than bawling out a 20 year old. That could be kept to private. How will it help? By getting us to talk about a manager bawling out a 20 year old instead of talking about how bobbins the 20 year old has been for the past 3 games. I ...

I don't think we've heard the last of Evatt's comments on Crellin. They seem to have attracted criticism from beyond our own supporters. I can understand why.

There a fantastic video of the full move for our equaliser on Twitter, which I would post here if only I could fathom how to do it.

It's really very, very good. Fourteen passes in total.

What a travesty it is that our first goal was disallowed. It was a great move.

Re: Cam v Croal a Punting Challenge: League 2, Cambridge v Bolton (A) Saturday October 24 14:00

I wouldn't drop him just yet. Evatt's publicly told him he needs to "man up" so he should get the opportunity to respond. He needs to be more commanding though, and quickly. No doubt about it.

Re: Cam v Croal a Punting Challenge: League 2, Cambridge v Bolton (A) Saturday October 24 14:00

Much much better. We looked like a good team today and never dropped our heads when Crellin messed up, and boy did he. That was basic catch the ball stuff. What was he thinking? Anyway, won't let that take away from the performance. Brocky I thought did great. Always running, positive, looking to a...

Re: Cam v Croal a Punting Challenge: League 2, Cambridge v Bolton (A) Saturday October 24 14:00

Good point, good performance sums it up. This is a qualified opinion because I only really watched the second half, but I thought Santos was outstanding. He effectively nullified the league's current top goalscorer, winning practically everything and never out of position. It's very pleasing to see ...

Re: Cam v Croal a Punting Challenge: League 2, Cambridge v Bolton (A) Saturday October 24 14:00

I've only been able to watch the last ten minutes of the first half due to a poor internet connection, and during that period they put a couple of dangerous crosses into our penalty area. It's good to hear that that hasn't been typical of the half, though. It's not felt like that sort of game, mate...

Re: Cam v Croal a Punting Challenge: League 2, Cambridge v Bolton (A) Saturday October 24 14:00

Good half and I think if we get the first goal we win. Brockbank in that position is an issue for me, though. I really like the lad and he's certainly got a place in the team, just not up the field on the left. The difficulty is that Gordon is currently susceptible to leaving his man free when defe...

Re: Cam v Croal a Punting Challenge: League 2, Cambridge v Bolton (A) Saturday October 24 14:00

Judge the team after the game. It looks odd. Really odd. Baptiste in and Brocky at LWB. Certainly not what many would pick. But perhaps it’s about the right characters? We will know by 5pm or perhaps much earlier.... I agree, and I don't think Brockbank played poorly on Tuesday night either. He isn...

Re: Cam v Croal a Punting Challenge: League 2, Cambridge v Bolton (A) Saturday October 24 14:00

FFS. I am now seriously considering not buying this. What selection would get you purchasing it? :-) I probably will still buy it because I have feck all else to do, but Brockbank at LWB and Baptiste anywhere WHYYYYYYYY?????? I don't know if you're seriously asking, but it seems to me that he doesn...

Re: Cam v Croal a Punting Challenge: League 2, Cambridge v Bolton (A) Saturday October 24 14:00

I've just realised it was the team that ended the match rather than started it. To clarify, I meant I think he might go for an unchanged team, again on the basis that they dug out a result (forgetting the fact the we ended up in such a mess early on in large part because of the changes to the back l...

He might pick the team that finished the game on the basis they had the balls to get back into it.

Barring enforched changes, I've been thinking the same.

Re: A Barrow load of trouble. Barrow (A) League 2. 20/10/20 KO 7pm

I wouldn't have made those changes to the back line tonight for a number of reasons, but while Brockbank might've been more reticent to get ahead of Delaney he's probably less likely to not track his man when defending. Swings and roundabouts.
