The corners I like are the ones where a player is about three yards towards the corner from the near post with the player flicking the ball into the zone that prevents the keeper having any form of flight of the ball to judge. Trouble is though those in the zone need to be switched on to respond, an instinct to stick out a leg to guide the ball goalwards. The OGS goal in the 1999 champions league final being the perfect demonstration of this.

The worst way of trying to catch people out is being predictable, the crazy gang exploited that to the full, and the rest couldn't handle the fact it wasn't comformisy, textbook football. But it was effective.
Also cannot understand all this Ardley put downs? The guy done well for us and we should thank him for it as no one was complaining then. He also brought in some good players in his time like Taylor, Elliott, Akifenwa, Bulman, Reeves, Meads, Tubbs, Alexander, Deji, Charles, Fuller etc etc. His sell by date just went past that's all.

Sandy - Sadly I’d say no there isn’t anything we are good at, this is the most clueless squad I have seen & I just hope that we can scrape to safety & have a huge shake up in the close season

Don't know if many of you agree with me but I find Sibbick really frustrating and he seems to do it week in and week out. He tears down the wing and then stops and takes ages to think about what to do with the ball when he should be getting the cross in straight away. Or he has all the time in the world and just stops dead and over thinks when in reality he could head straight for goal and have ago.

MAD – I totally agree with virtually everything you said at 8.39am today about our inept schoolboy manager except the last two sentences: I doubt if Nil has made millions from football, and the thought of him as a pundit – ha ha ha ha ha!

And unlike our previous insensitive management who really didn’t “get it”: “He’s a Rocket man, He wouldn’t shake a franchise hand, And I think it’s gonna be along long time… (feel free to carry on).
When was the last free kick we scored?

As long as I can remember we've been shit at throw ons. Might as well just throw the ball back to the opposition because we literally always just hand it back to them anyway.

Trigger also agree about speed of play, we take so long over things and end up just turning the ball over.

Trigger from the matches I’ve been at, when we put the right crosses in our players score, including Appiah and Trotter, from headers but we tend to take too long, cross flat with the 6 yard box, hit too high and generally every other thing that makes scoring unlikely. Hence why I’d like to see more of the diagonal crosses that are around penalty spot so keeper won’t come, early enough for Hanson and Pig to be able to get a decent go at them not when half the opposition are crowding round them. That is also where we need Wordsworth or whoever round the D, as you say to collect the seconds.

For a team with a lot of 6’+ guys we are shite at giving them a chance to stick their head on the ball.
After a terrace ticket for bristol match, preferably chemflow. Contact me on 07983200855 andy.mac@live.co.uk Thanks.

But we need people in there for the drop downs though. Neither Hanson nor Pig for their height score many goals direct from a cross. We rely on the ball to spill and then try to be first to react to stab it home.

We need to work set pieces and throw ons quickly to make sure their defence aren’t settled in position. Speed of play is key against poor defences. No time for a breather when the ball goes dead.
Lurker - agreed

I just want us to play to strengths, get it wide and bang crosses into positions where the front men can jump 1v1 not crowded.

Diddy - I'd hope he'd stick with same starting line up...then seriously freshen it up off bench...pending score

I'd hope we'd see more of the attacking play that we know we're capable of
Same side against Rovers on Friday or do you think Wally might freshen things up with a bit of attacking pace in the team?

So for the ones with long memories out there - have we ever played a league match (not a play off) where our oppo have won the league/promotion there and then because of the result?

Yesterday's Don, Nil was so overrated and there is little proof that much improved on his tenure behind the scenes (granting him credit overlooks the good work that others have done but somehow Nil got credited). In a matter of months a grown up has arrived, re-energised the academy, empowered the young players - showing their IS a career path at the club, seen that the U23 regime is not tough enough and looked to get game time for prospective players in mens football: the biggest turd Nil left behind was recruitment that was thoughtless and knee-jerk, leaving a totally imbalanced squad without no leadership and a weak spine. In months Wally has put a recruitment process in place, appointed an experienced league pro to put a data base together and scout. The bleat that poor Nil couldn't afford it Wally rightly cuffed it away with ok, if we run with one less player, it will pay for itself. Kept the shirkers away from the squad rather than fawn to them as Nil did. So completely with you on Nil. But fuck giving points to milton keynes! If Notts County do manage to stay up, from what I've seen, they've sussed him and 'coxy' already so its a short gig. He's earn't a few million from football, I hope no club gets seduced. Perhaps he'd make a good pundit (unless asked to discuss tactics).
