Re: Half season predictions

Playoffs was my prediction at the beginning of the season. Is it still possible to make up 8 pts.. yes. The Board is backing Evatt with signings. Evatt now has to back that up with results. Do I rate him as a manager? - so far sadly, no. Talks up possibilities and deliver nothing. I prefer results t...

Re: Will we be at the races? Cheltenham (h) Saturday 16 Jan 15:00 KO (GMT)

Kioso who is not our player does give us more than jones and Brockbank on that right side. He is fast and Stronger than them both and is very dangerous in attack. Would you have him back. I would. Checked on him in Luton's two games since he left. Was on the bench in their first which they lost, and...

Winning is everything for me. Makes my weekend a whole lot better regardless of how we play.

Re: Exeter Expects. Exeter City v Bolton (A) - 19:00 - 12th Jan

Dulaney was better earlier in the season, but since his goal, he has dropped off massively. Not sure why. Better than the awkward Greenidge at the moment? Who knows? I can only judge when I see them play and Greenidge did ok to me last time out, wasn't afraid to be physical, tackle and can pass. A m...

If there’s anyone here who would advocate a Santos/Greenidge centre half pairing please raise your hand and I will make your presence know to the doctors.
Might be on Saturday if an aerial bombardment is expected!

Re: Exeter Expects. Exeter City v Bolton (A) - 19:00 - 12th Jan

I thought that was fine. They're in the play-offs on PPG. New shape. Point was fair I think. Defo need another winger. Brockers doing his best and did fine but it's another square peg. Just need to look at Jones (motm for me) for for the difference. Looked lost at LWB. Excellent at RB. Full of runn...

Re: Exeter Expects. Exeter City v Bolton (A) - 19:00 - 12th Jan

Credit to the Manager who brought Gnahoua and Crawford on. Made a big difference, especially Gnahoua who has wonderful skills. Looks like he would be a good false 9 for Doyle in a 4-4-2. People say Delf and Sarc are better than this level. Don't see that at all. They are AT their level. Overall, a ...

Re: Exeter Expects. Exeter City v Bolton (A) - 19:00 - 12th Jan

0-0 at half. No problems. We seem harder to penetrate with this 4-3-3 formation. Safety first at the moment. Not a lot of quality on show but who cares if we can nick one in the 2nd Half.

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

Kioso in my opinion has been our most effective player so far this season. Tough loss for us. No like for like replacement in the squad but fortunately with Broky, Jones and Hickman we have coverage. John's injury another kick in the teeth. We are paying for someone's sin in the past apparently.

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

Can Jones play LB effectively ? Can Kioso play RB effectively? Now that we finally have 2 flyers at LWB and RWB, in response, we will ditch the system we have been playing that needed them? Don't understand why Evatt would do that at this time. Agree however that we need an alternative back up system.

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

We definitely need a left back as nothing we have, including the make shift ones (Jones and Brocky) are at the level we need in that position to achieve the promotion vision of the Manager.

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

Tough loss. We gave it a good go after they scored. No one to blame for their goal. Some neat penetrative play. Mom - their Keeper. Good games for Greenidge, Tutte, Thomason and Brockbank. Without Kioso and a LWB, the system struggles to be effective.

Re: Can we give the Cumbrians, the blues? Carlisle away Sat 26th Dec.3-0 clock.

Got up off my seat when Kioso equalized. God bless his soul, because based on our performance in the first half I expected nothing. If I am to be honest however, we do look a poor side and need help in January. We have to be more solid as a team. The way we are set us makes us weak all over the pitc...

Re: Can we give the Cumbrians, the blues? Carlisle away Sat 26th Dec.3-0 clock.

Poor half. We could have been easily 5 down. Playing like we are babies completely bullied and without a midfield. Evatt will probably say that we dominated it but for some lack of concentration.

Re: Can we squirrel 3 points from the Wirral mob? (H) Sat. 2020-12-19 15:00 BWFC v Tranmere Rovers

Ian doesn’t know how we lost apparently! I do hope he is saying that and not thinking it, otherwise I am going to start worrying about his ability to get us out of this division the right way. Me too because Tranmare outplayed us completely apart for about a 10 minutes spell shortly after the game ...

Not ready to throw out Evatt just yet. He is learning his craft. His language has changed a bit and becoming more realistic than depending on the universe speaking it into being. Lets see who he is able to get in January as some of the players we have are not up to it. We need players with more guts.

Re: Can we squirrel 3 points from the Wirral mob? (H) Sat. 2020-12-19 15:00 BWFC v Tranmere Rovers

We obviously missed Kioso. The Evatt system doesnt work without him. and a natural left Wing Back who can run wide behind and cross with their left foot. Was surprised Hickman wasn't in the squad. Jones cant do what he does. Broky was very poor. Insane is right here. Play a system based on the playe...

Our passing stats must make terrible reading...its been dreadful. Izgrove, Jones, Brocky all making a habit of it. Fonz needs to get in the game.
