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

By the same token, and I can't embed it no matter what I try, someone on Twitter has dubbed Jack Deaden's Wilbraham commentary over Miller's goal yesterday. It's a thousand times better for it. :mrgreen:

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

I'm quite surprised Thomason didn't enter the fold in the second half yesterday. If the intention was to dominate possession and hope to tempt them into making a mistake - and it seemed to be - his ability to switch the play quickly would've been very useful. One of the reasons we found it difficult...

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

Well I think we got a point we barely deserved. For all the possession we didn’t look like scoring until that incredible ending. In fact, I would say BECAUSE of all the possession we didn’t look like scoring. It’s no good having that kind of ball when you don’t have creativity. Sarcevic and Isgrove...

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

That win put us 21 points clear of relegation, Barrow still have 2 games in hand so it could be 19 ahead of Southend. P.S. Miller is behind the ball when it's played. Again, feck you Gary Henshaw. I'm not at all sure he is. That just makes that bit sweeter, though. :mrgreen: onside.png I say onside...

Delivery into the box is awful.

It has been all season. Never have I known so many crosses hit the first defender.

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

There's a fine line between passing along the backline to drag the opposition out of shape and spending too much time passing along the backline because of an inability to drag the opposition out of shape.

Bring Arthur on to run directly at them.

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

The no sub keeper thing is really stupid. It makes me nervous but there is some logic to it. The only logic I can see is that Elbouzedi must be better int' nets than our spare goalies, which, to be fair.............. ;) There were times earlier in the season where I genuinely wondered if Crellin mi...

The no sub keeper thing is really stupid. It makes me nervous but there is some logic to it. “More attacking options” is his logic, but do we really need more than Fonz, Arthur, Miller and Thomason? Not for me. Well, we've picked up points lately by being able to effectively change our entire front...

Re: Returning to the ground

Barrow have released their figures for online subscriptions on ifollow . Obviously as we're massive and that, we're top (2,108 to joint second Cambridge and Bradford on 1,312). I knew Salford were a tin pot vanity project but for their 2 games against Barrow they were watched by 38 and 55. F*ck me....

Don't we have a centre half on trial?

I can't recall his name but I think he's still with us.

Re: Can we press on against the Iron? Scunthorpe (H) 23.2.21 7pm KO

I think tonight was the first time I felt comfortable throughout. There was a hairy moment when Baptiste cleared off the line but apart from that I never really worried about the result.

Re: Can we press on against the Iron? Scunthorpe (H) 23.2.21 7pm KO

At the start of February we were 19th in the table on 31 points whilst Carlisle was 2nd with 42 points. Now we're in 9th on 44 with Carlisle 10th on 43. What a turn around for both teams. To be fair, they've hardly played. You'd think they'd get a point or two with their 4 games in hand on us...but...

Whisper it... one point off the play-offs.
Holler it... Nigel Clough losing at Harrogate

Another fluke goal, no doubt.
