Re: Haven't Seen You Her-Bi-Vore. Inaugural Meat-ing. Forest Green Rovers (H) Sat 12/09/20 15:00 (Division 4)

Look on the bright side. Our odds for promotion should move out a few points...That was awful. The glimpses we saw in first two games largely disappeared. How Crawford didn't start is beyond me. He wasn't excellent when he came on, but head and shoulders better than what had gone before.

First 15 minutes looked tidyish but then we seemed to stop. Glass half full, good chances for Doyle and Greenidge. Glass half empty, they've had good chances too. 0-0 probably a fair reflection, problem is this looks winnable and at the minute they have as much chance as us.

Re: Pragmatism vs Perseverance

Style-wise, I agree we should hold out longer. Despite the results of the first two games, there were occasions in both when I was pleased with our pass and attack play. As mentioned, second half v Crewe was a decent watch, felt like we were trying to play "good football". That's been missing under ...

Re: Pragmatism vs Perseverance

There comes a point where pragmatism will kick in. How many relegations would such a team suffer before deciding that it wasn't working? Sure the answer isn't at 6 games in, but if we were on zero points then I'm fairly sure questions would start being asked if it was down to rinse/repeat mistakes. ...

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

It depends on the question. Is it what I think he needs? Or what I think, he thinks he needs? :-) I think he should hold his shit a bit, with the focus being to see if he can sort the defence out. I think he thinks he needs more attacking options. I would temper this view a little coz he sees them e...

Forgot about keeper. That was my number 1 this time last week! Certainly a big risk at the moment.
Crellin has save us a goal on a few occasions so far - dunno what the back-up's like, but I don't have GK on my "urgent" list from what I've seen so far.

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

^^ We're not even sure if Evatt's preferred 1st team has Crawford in it yet! :-) Guess tomorrow might help us find out, but my thought too, if we're after two players for each position yadda yadda and Crawford if the first of the AM's, then I think Darcy is number 2 to that, too.

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

I'm not sure I'd be rushing the last one, if the other one mentioned is a forward. Over the two games, I've seen enough glimpses in midfield and attack to suggest we can create opportunities. Crawford looked good at this on Tuesday (albeit in spurts, both goals came from Crawford balls in), Hickman ...

Re: Haven't Seen You Her-Bi-Vore. Inaugural Meat-ing. Forest Green Rovers (H) Sat 12/09/20 15:00 (Division 4)

Doyle at one point looked like he was hobbling a bit according to commentary (not sure I saw the same thing). Doyle was definitely "walkin' funny", but that was from about 30 minutes in and we didn't take him off. If that was due to him carrying a knock it is bizarre management. I'd come to assume ...

Re: Haven't Seen You Her-Bi-Vore. Inaugural Meat-ing. Forest Green Rovers (H) Sat 12/09/20 15:00 (Division 4)

The Bolton head coach revealed “three or four” players had picked up minor injuries in the midweek EFL Trophy defeat to Crewe. “I am not going to name names but we have probably got three or four who have picked up knocks which could potentially keep them out on Saturday.” Dunno whether this is "min...

Re: Haven't Seen You Her-Bi-Vore. Inaugural Beef. Forest Green Rovers (H) Sat 12/09/20 15:00 (Division 4 )

WTF is a "Division 4" when it's at home. FFS. :-) I think your summation around "what's gone on so far" is about right. Poor at the back overall, glimpses going forwards (maybe a little better than glimpses) - our three goals have all been pretty well structured. Tuesday, overall, was a "decent watc...

Re: Wrecking Crewe - In search of a Tin Pot to piss in. Crewe Alex (H). FL Trophy 7PM 8/9/2020

Yeah Santos was frustrating because there were times I was sure he could get to the ball but he just didn't seem bothered...perhaps though its nerves. I think Sarcevic is trying too hard. Can't say I'm enamoured with Taft - I think there are multiple times he's just let runners ghost past him which...

Re: Wrecking Crewe - In search of a Tin Pot to piss in. Crewe Alex (H). FL Trophy 7PM 8/9/2020

It all looks a bit "tallest dwarf" from the first two showings for me in those central defence positions. I'm not seeing any shoo ins from the two games I've seen. Certainly there as much as case for Taft playing as the others. Santos has been worst of the lot for me. I don't disagree, but I suppos...
