Our first goal comes from Forrester putting in a tackle on the right flank. I suspect NA looks at that sort of thing and thinks, 'That's Forrester having to track back and cover for Kaja who wasn't there.'

Would have loved to see Oshilaja bombing down the left flank last night

Instead of Ardley's gimp putting in another limp cross
Francomb - 1st name on the team sheet. Give me strength!

Against a good team like Rotherham, who like to use the flanks and get balls in to that big fucker up top, it's imperative the two wide midfielders hold their shape and know what they're doing. NA is showing faith in Kaja by playing him, but he has to repay that faith by doing his job. Didn't think he had a bad game at all, he put in a shift and looked lively going forward - he'll have more freedom against Plymouth on Saturday I'd imagine.

As WD says, if he'd made a big mistake we'd all be here castigating NA's selection and wondering whether Kaja is ready for for first-team football...
Windlesham Don-at the end of the day, I strongly believe that coaches over-coach (to justify their existence). Yes, players should be briefed on the opposition and given general guidance, but coaching will never make a poor player a good one. Whatever talent Kaja has will be best supported by leaving him with a clear head to get on playing. If you try to 'micro-manage' a player you'll confuse and kill any talent the player has.

Thanks keefy, thanks keefy. Anyway Egli will be dropped for George when Deji gets drafted in to Left Back - there has to be a place for George obviously! ;-)

"failure to do your job affects results." Has someone told NA this? Let's hope so!

No more stupid ideas Neal, please. This is the third season in a row your barking mad tactical obsessions have ruined the start of a season.
Windy, You know Ardley's history with young players. Agree with Kentish. Barking orders does not help a young player. Good performance last night but still let down by our full backs and their poor passing ability. Playing both Soares and Trotter is one too many defensive midfielders especially at home.

Basingstoke - that is amusing. It was explained to Paul Davis we were moving to a new stadium in Merton, and that the present one was due for demolition soon and a new one constructed in 2018. Noted for the return game. :o)

I thought Kaja did ok last night. Gave the team balance and pace. Certainly his presence gave harry more room. Nice to have to home grown players in the team again

Sorry guys, but I disagree. We were in the middle of a vital game against difficult opponents. Egli would have told his role pre match and he obviously wasn't doing what was asked of him. The manager has every right to bark instructions if any player is not doing what he has been told to do. There will be a wash up with all of the players regarding their performance and that is the time to be positive and constructive - in the heat of the match then the players just need to do their jobs. If Egli had made a match losing mistake then there wouldn't have been much sympathy on here!

He is a man playing in a man's team where results count and failure to do your job affects results.
Winslow - what part of the BBC stats, please? Serious question because I am just about submit for the programme and if there is an error within, I need to clarify and correct. Thanks.

The problem with Ardley's style of micro-management is players, especially a young player like Kaja, stop using their brains and merely await their next set of orders like some puppy in the park

It becomes a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy
This report says that Kingsmeadow is due for demolition is a years time. [Link] Hope someone has told Chelsea. ;)

someone has surely got the wrong end of a stick
We were asking quite a lot of our midfielders last night, when to stay as a flat four, when Forrester was to drop in to make it five, when they were to transition from 4-1 to 2-3 I guess NA felt Kaja was struggling a bit with that? Fine line between coaching and 'picking on'.

Windlesham Don-good morning. It's very hard to play when you're getting stuff shouted at you all the time. In his position Kaja needs support runners and encouragement.

There's instructions, Windy, and then there's picking on someone. Basingstoke said Kaja was consoled after the game despite a great win - that's Ardley's fault

If you pick them, let them play. Don't pick them, then pick on them.
Oshilaja for Francomb and Abdou for Trotter and in my view we wouldn't be a bad side.

At least mid-November before we see Meades IMO.
Well I wasn't expecting that result, I thought we might have got thumped to be honest. Fantastic effort under pressure and LTB has found his scoring boots again, happy days!

Obviously Neal has been reading on here and set up the team accordingly! ;-)
Trebor- bugger systems, both Soares & Trotter are slow and largely useless. Hartigan can play a pass and Abdou has a good engine.

Think Soares and Trotter are ideal for the current 4-4-1-1 becomes 4-2-3-1 formation.

So now we are having a go at NA for giving instructions to one of our youngsters? Jeez!

Good morning all BTW.
oxford - the play-offs don't count as league games, for some reason. There are only 46 league games a season.

something to do with them not being covered by season tickets space
Just looked at the match stats in the BBC. They must make them up.

To whom does the shrink give advice? NA? "Look Neal, just select the most skillful players, put them in their natural positions, and tell the boys to run fast, tackle hard, pass accurately to each other, attack the opposition goal quickly, get in the box, and kick the ball in the net, preferably very hard. Can you do that Neal, or is there, somewhere, a deep psychological blockage which stops you? Oh, and don't keep looking at that UEFA coaching manual before answering my questions".
