Re: S-Ken Anderson-horpe Utd away - Tue, 24 Nov, 7:00pm

If we consider Cambridge United away as the match the base of our best starting eleven began to crystalise , our record in the league looks like this: Played: 7 Won: 4 Drawn: 2 Lost: 1 This intrigued me so I looked back and it was arguably more like, er Grimsby. Santos and Delaney had already start...

If we consider Cambridge United away as the match the base of our best starting eleven began to crystalise , our record in the league looks like this: Played: 7 Won: 4 Drawn: 2 Lost: 1 But at heart this is a passing team, happy in possession (first goal Saturday was something like a ten-pass move) ...

Re: S-Ken Anderson-horpe Utd away - Tue, 24 Nov, 7:00pm

It's strange how things pan out. Last season Tutte couldn't get a sniff at Morecambe, now I don't want to imagine us starting without him.

Re: S-Ken Anderson-horpe Utd away - Tue, 24 Nov, 7:00pm

I'm not sure why Evatt thinks replacing Crawford with Isgrove instead of White or Darcy is a good idea when defending a one-goal lead.

Re: S-Ken Anderson-horpe Utd away - Tue, 24 Nov, 7:00pm

I know we haven't scored, but we've been very good so far. Aggressive pressing high up the pitch when out of possession forcing them into making mistakes, players showing for it in space when in posession. The midfield is working phenomenally hard. The concern is that, with us having played on Satur...

I think it'll have to be on an alternate basis, although I believe we eventually sold just over eight thousand.

Re: Returning to the ground

It's 50% capacity up to a maximum of 4,000, and I expect the reason they've limited it to that figure is because they're concerned about large numbers of people travelling to and from the match.

Re: Evatt has a bag of Revells to contend with. Who'll turn up? Stevenage Away 21/11/2020 3pm

I think if we hadn't have conceded when we did the second half would've been more comfortable. Stepping out onto the pitch with a two-goal cushion and a clean sheet should've given us the confidence to push on. It's very pleasing to see the introduction of organised pressing high up the pitch and al...

An unchanged team, as expected. Darcy gets the nod for that final place on the substitutes' bench.

Re: Turn off, Toon in, drop out: Newcastle U21 (H), Sherpa Van, Tue 17 Nov @ 7pm

Course he shouldn’t be written off - not at 18. Loads of time yet. Sounds like he has got his head down and benefitted from the loan. I just thought it was looking very unlikely for him. Signed from the fifth tier of non-league football by a manager (or maybe head of recruitment) who's since left, ...

Re: Turn off, Toon in, drop out: Newcastle U21 (H), Sherpa Van, Tue 17 Nov @ 7pm

First win with the majority of possession.

It's interesting to read the comments on Thomasson. I have to be honest, I'd completely written him off. Maybe I shouldn't have.

A good half. The defence looks solid. Sarce and Santos are making it look easy.

We aren't creating much, though.

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

I don't think any of us seriously thought he wouldn't start Doyle and Sarce, did we? I don't know if Doyle and Jones will make it to the final whistle, which is a concern, but I really like the starting line up and am feeling slightly more confident than I was an hour ago. In fact, fitness concerns...
