Any point away is a bonus especially from one down..... Another 51 points and we've cracked it....A well deserved point in a game I thought the goal would never come. Couldn't understand the starting line up. Worrall and Timlin especially finding themselves on the bench. Apart from Fleetwoods wonder goal and a shot off the bar we dominated the majority of the game. Wordsworth looked classy, Weston had a decent game, and the rest did ok. Hurst and Atkinson showed effort, but just didn't get into the game, bar a 25yard effort from Hurst shortly before he was withdrawn. The substitutes improved us, Worrall and Pigott looking dangerous. Hunt making a few dangerous runs. When the. Worrall goal came, a fantastic finish from the left side of the area, we were well on top and deserved it. We backed off after and settled for the point which was understandable. Only criticism s today was the performance of White, who was caught out several times in the first half. Bolger also looked shaky at times and gave the ball away far too easily. Plus Mooney was anonymous. Got to be happy with an opening day draw though. Bentley 7, White 5, Bolger 6, Barrett 7, Coker 7, Atkinson 6, Wordsworth 7, Leonard 7, Weston 7, Hurst 6, Mooney 5. Substitutes Worrall 8 Motm, Piggot 7, Hunt 7
rush goalies then..! If Bentley goes I can't see Ted cutting it...Not being negative after the first day but if we do sell Bentley then I would strengthen with a RB and possibly another CB , I'm happy with the midfield and our forwards are all very different to each other which may prove ok when switching it up
Happy with a point but with a few additions I really think we could cement a mid table finish with a very youthful and lively squad
I do hope PB doesnt start picking strange lineups, just because he can, and o you lot out there dont understand. Well hurst over worrall in my humble opinion was a mistake, a glaring one. As well as Weston played up top, he is a winger, why sign the Pig on loan then put him on the bench. We got a draw, and deserved it, but why play silly buggers with the side and make it more difficult.
I think I saw the attendance was 3.5k, with over 400 Blues...3,500!!?? Tin pot get a life.
Never understood why we have to mock clubs because they get smaller crowds than we currently do. I've stood on the terraces at Roots Hall with under 2,000 fellow shrimpers. As a proportion of their available catchement area, I bet 3.5k measures up favourably with our crowds.
Fair enough mate, was a bit ****ed when I wrote that. I've seen their capacity is 5.3k which I was surprised at, thought it was more.Never understood why we have to mock clubs because they get smaller crowds than we currently do.
