Re: We need a captain to lead the team.

Wright seems to do a lot of organising at the back in open play which is good. From set pieces it should largely be as per the manager's instructions before the game so if people are losing their man then no amount of shouting is going to solve that. Some players are bad at marking and despite being...

Re: Another striker brought in

Hoyte is our best defender regardless of views about how he left before.

Last night was clearly an attempt to put us on the front foot and it didn't work so we changed it at half time.

Re: Aldershot

I know it's a results business and we've played some right old crap already but I don't think we are miles away. Losing to the odd goal doesn't point to major issues. I think we are still looking for the right formula and hoping the young lads adjust to this level, and it may happen too late, but I'...

Changed the shape. Started 352 and changed to 433.

Re: The Boss Better Watch His Back: Things Not Good At Barnet

How fickle football fans are. You don't build a new team overnight and even Salford are already enduring a tough start despite their mountains of cash. John is a great manager at this level and if he doesn't get them up this season then he'll likely do it next season. They are missing 2 or 3 big pla...

Re: What did I miss ?

I've been impressed with Gordon. Yesterday probably his best game so far. He is difficult to get past and he looks good on the ball even though his passing can then be a bit dodgy. Only thing I'd say is that we've conceded a couple of goals from his flank when he's been left up the pitch - his attac...

Re: Can't do a season of this !!

Very harsh imo. Probably centimetres away from the ball too. Looked worse as the man turned a bit but that's never a red card. One foot and on the ground.

Re: Can't do a season of this !!

I think they'll be top half. Their defence is very good for this level and they have Balanta plus other decent midfielders. Lack a striker as do we.

Good at the back and nothing much going forward. Hope we sign a forward.

Re: What is our Strongest XI?

Have we been going 433 in pre season? From looking at our squad a midfield 3 of Robinson Donovan Phipps looks most sensible.

I'd be surprised if we aren't expected to pick the two loanee defenders, but not sure where that would leave Pennell. 352?

Re: Cheek gone??

I thought he was very ponderous. Had the ability to bulldoze defenders but didn't do it enough. Not enough bang for buck.

Re: Ben Nunn

I'm not sure why we have 2 established right backs but I think he's a good appointment.

Re: What is our Strongest XI?

If we go with effectively 4 forwards we'll be in trouble. Taylor sides are normally fairly defensive.

Re: Squad as it stands

Has Davey played yet? Think we are very thin at cb. I'm also not sure we can afford Hoyte and Nunn, wouldn't be surprised if Nunn left once he's fit.

Re: Morgan Ferrier

I'm sure a few days ago the chairman said he was definitely staying for the season!

I guess our angle is the sell on of any sell on. If we had 20% and Boreham also negotiate 20% then if he gets sold again for 2m we suddenly get another 80k.

Re: Squad as it stands

Not sure why he'd need to trial unless it was due to checking his injury out. JS has managed him for years!

Fairly sure it wasn't him anyway.
