Re: A bridge too far, or worth a punt? Cambridge Utd (H) Tues 9.3.21 KO 7pm

I saw a statistic a couple of weeks ago which showed that since Gilks made his debut we'd amassed the league's second highest number of points. Admittedly, there were a number of teams below with a couple of matches in hand, but considering our results haven't really let up since then, I'd imagine w...

Brilliant.

I can't recall too many first halves where I'm disappointed we haven't gone in three goals up.

Doyle should score for me there. Very open this. Could be 4-3.

I think that's harsh. A cross whipped in from distance like that is difficult to angle into the corner first time.

Re: The Bantams wait: Bradford (A) 6/3/21, 3pm KO

Doyle would be fine if we played to his strengths. He's still scoring at a rate of almost one in two even though we aren't. The last-minute equaliser was a kick in the cock but I feel more confident we'll reach the play-offs now than I did before. We desperately need to find a way to convert good po...

There is. I feel Lee is a calmer head on the ball. Others perhaps rushing a bit.

As exhibited by Jones there.

Re: Minefields and banana skins.V Oldham Athletic away Tues 2nd March 7'O clock.

We've quietly picked up six clean sheets in our last eight. Granted, they've come against clubs in the bottom half, but it's still encouraging.

Re: Minefields and banana skins.V Oldham Athletic away Tues 2nd March 7'O clock.

Nice and comfortable. Our season-long mid-week unbeaten run continues.

A couple of very big matches coming up, but we have no reason to fear anyone now.

Scunny 1 up at Cambridge!

It's a waste of time trying to make sense of this league. Not that I'm complaining, mind. :D

It really is a huge luxury to be able to change our entire front line without weakening it every week.

Stevenage are thumping FGR. It's a funny old league, this.

Brilliant. It feels great to finally be in a position where we can sign up our prized assets to longer contracts.

Re: Will the wheel drop off? Barrow (h) 27/02/21 15:00

I'm not sure it was a particularly necessary question to ask, and I'm not certain Evatt's response was just about Henshaw either, but he needs to get a f*cking grip.

Just play it with a straight bat. If Henshaw's comments really did bother him that much he should raise it privately.
