Re: What's the collective noun for a group of wheelchair bound detectives? Newport County at home. 26th Sep 2020 3.00pm

I managed to get the stream on i follow via my pass. I'd be happy to continue watching this way from what I saw. Having read some of the posts we have a mixed review. Early days, give them time et al et al. If Evatt doesn't address that defence, Bolton will drop from the EFL. That team is simply no...

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

Yes - meant Jake Wright! Just someone of that ilk on loan. I don’t think any of the players we have are talkers at the back - they have been signed based on physical stats but we need someone more tactically astute. Yeah, I get what you mean. You'd hope that Baptiste would be the savvy organiser bu...

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

Greenidge, Taft and Delaney seems somewhat unnecessary for left footed centre halves. I understand what you're saying but if you're playing a back three - as we machine-tooled the squad to do - then you'd want six, with three of them to be lefties. Taft is the established D4 player, Greenidge the M...

Re: What's the collective noun for a group of wheelchair bound detectives? Newport County at home. 26th Sep 2020 3.00pm

Darcy has much to improve on, but he has a touch, feel and awareness that many in our team don't appear to possess and I find it difficult to believe he wouldn't improve us by playing, for example, on the left of the three in a 4-2-3-1. Dropping Delf or Doyle? This is why I think we might be better...

Dropping Delf or Doyle?

This is why I think we might be better switching back to a back three. Doyle is hobbled as the one up top.

Anything positive comes out of Evatts mouth is going to fall on deaf ears. Well, he ain't gone Sammy Lee. I don’t think there were many [positives]. Probably the five minutes after they scored the first goal we showed the most energy and desire we did all day. We got the goal and then it’s disallow...

Re: What's the collective noun for a group of wheelchair bound detectives? Newport County at home. 26th Sep 2020 3.00pm

The bottom line is we’ve signed a bunch of lower league and non league players thrown them together and expected them to magically play football out from the back. How many of our players would definitely be at league teams now if we hadn't picked them up? Doyle, Sarce, Crawford, Delf, Taft and Jon...

Re: What's the collective noun for a group of wheelchair bound detectives? Newport County at home. 26th Sep 2020 3.00pm

As it stands, I believe we're third-bottom. Another goal conceded would see us second-bottom. Good old Southend. So our third week in pushing three years outside the relegation zone. All on goal difference. I was wondering how soon you can have a relegation six-pointer. Well, next week we travel to...

Re: What's the collective noun for a group of wheelchair bound detectives? Newport County at home. 26th Sep 2020 3.00pm

Santos is just wonderful to watch. Makes me wonder why I didn't try to be a footballer. He leads me to believe that even at the age of 54 a future as a professional footballer might still lie ahead of me. Commentator "we've used three substitutes, I'd just take him off"... Henshaw innit. He said th...

Re: What's the collective noun for a group of wheelchair bound detectives? Newport County at home. 26th Sep 2020 3.00pm

I'm pretty sure that the last time I saw us play Newport, we absolutely dicked them and the on loan Stuart Ripley was superb. Ripley was on loan in 86; we beat them 6-0 in 88, JT hat-trick. They were going bust as well as going down, playing kids, and when their second sub came on with a No14 shirt...

Desperately unlucky - Comley blocks a shot and it bounces off Crawford straight for the same guy to shoot again unmolested - but nobody can say we deserve to be in the lead.
