Went to the Crawley vs Redbridge game yesterday and really didn't see anything to fear. The 5-0 scoreline flattered them. Redbridge had done very well to get to round 2 but they are a very poor team and they actually managed to play some half decent football against Crawley in periods, this is something I haven't seen them do before.
Tubbs was the stand out performance hitting a hattrick, 2 of those were pens but he was a constant threat, looked very sharp and his second goal was outstanding! Barnett was not so impressive considering Evans lauds him as the best striker outside the prem! very athletic and his movement was good but lacked a touch. Torres was very average as was Josh Simpson. At the back I'd say Claude Davis is a definite weak link, as is their left back (didn't get a name but he had hair like sideshow bob from the simpsons). Davis will mop up anything in the air and is a big physical presence but he is immobile and is very uncomfortable on the ball. The left back, despite having amazing pace, was poor too and panicked under pressure conceding far too many throw ins because he is unable to put a ball down the line.
The keeper wasn't great either, dropped the ball with nobody on him then rolled around like he was shot, the ref saved his blushes by awarding a freekick but even after it was awarded the keeper continued to shamefully feign injury, we were right next to it and the keeper dropped the ball as he fell to ground long before the redbridge player snatched it. It would have made the game 2-1 as well.
Finally a mention for Steve Evans, he's getting fatter I swear! My mate came off at the 70min mark and said Evans was mouthing off to their bench constantly for the last 20. The best one was Evans flashing his watch saying that it cost more than the whole redbridge club. The guy really is a **** no need for that when you are 4-0 up against a ryman 1 north team.
