They seem to have something going with Juventus, let's hope they don't play like them.

2-0 town. They leak goals and we score for fun  :)

One of my favourites to bring up in the pub when it seems relevant.

Can't see us scoring more than one, or conseding less than one. Going for an optomistic 1-1 draw.

sorry about the spelling./

Bob Vieri, father of Christian.
An Australian connection, same as today's opponents.
So that's it, an omen, 4-0 to us. Job done.

And European giants shouldn't be languishing in the 4th tier of English football.

Can't see anything other than a defeat.

We can't score

We cannot defend and he will continue playing Lancashire, Taylor and Richards.

If we don't win then this has to be Brown's last game. I have no confidence in the guy.

Hope i'm wrong and we do win.

I have a wisteria growing neighbour and would like to pay him a visit at midnight next Friday night.  Before whipping back home to start the matchday thread at 12.07 am.  Something like "Town to bludgeon Us".

I honestly can't see where our goals will be coming from, confidence seems low on the pitch and with the fans too.

They are pretty shit, we, at the moment, are marginally shitter.

They have won their last 2 home league games but lost their last 2 games both away conceding 6 and scoring once in the process.

If Brown does not win one of the next 3 games then his job has to be on the line, County are 3rd bottom with only 3 league wins all season and have conceded 32 goals from their 14 games so far easily far and away the worst defence in the top 5 divisions (we have conceded 20 from 15).

If we can't score against them then we are really in for a long hard season.

0-3 defeat in front of 5,355 with 385 Town fans there, Town with just 1 shot on target.

I blame any potential defeat on 4D for starting the 2nd matchday thread before midnight ;)

Pre match conference in The Company Inn.

Well remember the end of term game here in 2014.
90th minute skirmish that saw 4 yellows and 2 reds dished out, both for us of course.
Spotted in the away following that day, a young teen busy with a colouring book and a group who were only "ere for the 'ooters".
Always advisable to have an alternative activity lined up when just the football isn't going to be enough.

Nottingham is a fine drinking city.
Ideal for prattin abaht in one of the many fooo-kin booza's.
Get to learn a whole new language as well.

Anything other than more of the same would be a surprise today.
PB and the team need to conjure up another Yeovil type performance from somewhere.
We are unbeaten against Harry Kewell this season.

Nottingham was originally called Snottingham, don't know if it is still the case but it used to be one of the few places in Britain which had more women in the population than men.

I hope you at least get an I was there moment, when we score a goal.

Yes, named after an Anglo Saxon chieftain called Snot apparently.
He probably had to work hard to gain some respect.

I guess the male / female ratio depends on the 50 or 60,000 student population.

Could be a tale of two 35+ strikers today if both start.

A routine 2-0. Swindon has become like a dementor for me. It sucks all hope out of my soul. Acceptance of Div 4 status (at best), Brexit and persisting with Richards up front are bringing me as close as Iíve ever come to giving up on the Benighted Kingdom.

I too am guessing Toums and Woolery must be injured as they would be starters for me today.

We look weak in attacking options in midfield with both Alzate and Anderson on the bench, both of whom normally do the running in the middle.

Bayo even when cutting in from left wing is a threat too yet he persists with Richards who offers no threats.

I am predicting a red card for Dunne today and several bookings for us too.

I wanted a bit of pace up top though, so the midfield could hoof it into the channels.... I doubt McGlashen is being used in that role.

I really do hope so, I don't hate Brown - unlike many on here and would like him to change it and rack up a change of fortunes, but he seems to not be able to find his best line up and tactic, or he doesn't have the players here for his best tactic.

That midfield may arrest the slide. However, I suppose, as a supporter , the problem with seeing the likes of Smith, Dunne and McCourt on the pitch is that you are not going to see them do anything that many of us ourselves couldn’ do/ have done had we been awarded the opportunity of being a professional footballer. We expect to pay to see a bit more than that?

That was shocking, offer nothing much going forwards, unable to defend, hardly any player to come out of that with any credit except maybe Smith and Knoyle, McCourt doing ok but nothing more, the rest are poor, Nelson was good until his hot headed challenge.

I would say it can only get better but it could get worse still.

Good job County are pretty shit at finishing too or it could have been a few goals down.

That was fucking atrocious.  Brown is making a right mess of this team.  Nobody has a clue where they are supposed to be or how to play with the ball.  Both wings are having a field day against us, lucky to be only one down.  We can't have had many training hours playing this way and it shows.  Same old players not stepping up.  Smith looks ok but he's all over the place, suggesting nobody in the midfield 5 has much of a clue about who is to do what and where.  Doughty is utterly wasted trying to win balls in the air, Richards is not going to magic himself into a target man no matter how often Brown tries it.  McGlashan is a waste of a player whe we are not trying to go wide.  Lancashire continues to have real trouble turning with players and Nelson for all his efforts seems a bit loco today.  McCourt is only  really any use on the front foot, we don't have it and he ends up being last man in front of the defence and looks useless at that.

It's like Brown just pulled a team out of a hat and sent them out to figure it out for themselves.  We've seen us look pretty decent, being able to control the ball early on in the season so to play like this is a reflection of the Manager.

Well for what it's worth I don't think any blame can be laid at Powers door,. There are teams with lesser budgets better than us and I'm sure County have a far bigger budget than us and are poor this term.
For me the blame lies solely at Brown's door, I'm not at the game today but have seen many this season and why oh why are we persisting with the old guard of Richards and Taylor?
Brown's time must surely be up and for me we can't give the role to Taylor.
Looking for an improved 2nd half but feel even an equaliser is beyond this team.

At the time it looked to me like Vigs chose the wrong direction, haven't seen it again yet though.

If Brown makes changes then that will tell us that he takes the blame for the selection, if he makes no changes then he has put the blame on the shoulders of the players.

Something badly needs to change for us to get a point of of today.

Much better after the changes.  Thought it was a big risk not taking off Nelson but he probably showed his fouling was by design by not giving away another free kick in 16 minutes.

Alzate made a difference and it also gave Smith an obvious role, thought he did well second half.  Adebayo, even if not playing well is clearly better at the hold up and bustling play than Doughty was ever going to be.  They still had plenty of opportunities to attack us on the wings but they didn't use it well enough.  I think I'd be a bit less worried about Taylor if someone was playing next to him could cover him.  Dunne at least came over and tried to double up but Lancashire can't offer him the defensive cover he needs.  He put in some awful balls, but you do get one good one from him and we get the goal.  Alzate changed the game and Smith took some control of it.

Brown needs to take a lesson from this one - find a formation and get the right players playing for it, stop trying everything.  The second half showed we have some ability and the players are willing to work.  He needs to get them settled and if that means leaving some players out then so be it.

In a crisis, you go back to basics, you have 3 subs to change it around. What you'd expect from an experienced manager....doesn't always mean it works out for you, but it did, which is what matters.

A few weeks back you were sufficiently impressed with Brown to predict we'd be in the slots, by October.

Another reshuffle, a change of luck and three points.

Deep breath and move on to next week when normal service will probably be resumed.

Can't understand why it's so quiet on here.  Had we lost we'd have been on page 22 by now.
It's not often we've been able to do it this season,  so let's gloat and enjoy it.

We've not had a match day thread come even close to 22 pages on the actual day of the match for quite a while now, definitely not this season and probably not last either.

Good win today, got no problem with a gritty performance at all. Hopefully they can kick on next week at a tricky Colchester side who beat Lincoln at home today.

Anyone got any ideas why Smith has barely played recently? I liked the look of him at the start of the year and then disappeared before doing ok again today. Got a good mix of passing/grit

Smith's persistence and tackle to win the ball back and then set up Taylor was superb and all you can ask for  from a midfielder he has to now be a regular starter.

well, bar a 10 minute spell in the first half we were clueless, rubbish and there for the taking.

but the second half was different! adebeyo made a massive difference and did Alzate. once the equaliser went in county started to wobble and we did it!

it's like our better players coming on helped.

is it papering over the cracks?... probably... but for tonight, who cares

Not sure you could classify the first half as gritty, it was bare faced luck that we were not three or four  down at the break.  We were beyond poor.  The second half, once we had made the changes, we looked  like we had far more composure and understanding between players.

Idiot - we were lucky in the first half to still be in the game for those changes to have an impact.  It was not rocket science that things were not working and our midfield were falling over themselves and nothing was sticking to Doughty's head up front.  I just wish he'd settle somewhere close to the finishing line-up, stick to it and just trust players to fill in gaps when players are injured but keep it pretty much the same.  I'm not sold on Alzate and Anderson playing together, would probably prefer Woollery if fit and Alzate seems to offer more consistently than Anderson does, but that finishing team could start the next game and I wouldn't have too many issues with that.  Lancashire could do with replacing and we don't have anyone to replace Taylor, so bar maybe one change let them play for a while.

The ColU game is something of a free shot, they're flying and have Norris and Nouble up front, so I don't think too many would expect us to get anything there.

As for the game, Doughty offered nothing really but played very out of position, probably would have taken McCourt off and moved MD to a more familiar CM position myself.  Rectified this somewhat by the second change soon after.  Maybe MD isn't 100% yet.

Last game for me, been everywhere but Morecambe and Exeter so at least I've signed off with a win.

The first half was terrible,two equally shit sides and it had me wondering on Browns claim at the start of the season that with him ,McDonald and Taylor,we would have the best coached team in the division. We couldnít defend the long balls which caused havoc and kept Vigs busy. Passes going into touch and players not seeming to understand the system they were meant to be playing.Second half was much better and the substitutions made a big difference.
Alzates goal was a thing of beauty and although I know Taylor looked at one point that he was running in treacle when trying to get back in position, I love his effort and the passion he shows. It really means something to him. It made for an enjoyable drive home,first time in six visits to meadow lane that Iíve seen us win

Conroy was shit on Tuesday & clearly isn't over his injury concerns but surprised that Diagouraga was dropped from the squad completely. Was at fault for the 1st goal on Tuesday but has generally been one of our best players in the games I've seen. Was also going to talk about McGlashan before today. I know he hasn't scored for us yet but for the number crunchers out there does he have any assists? If not that's a shocking stat for an attacking player signed from a higher division.

You can interpret it how you like.
His comment was the right is on the rise in Britain and Europe fuelled by brexit and Trump. So using his ideology if you support trump and/or voted leave your right wing? Wrong, and I'm not even a tory!

Corbyn was always anti Europe and the West when a back bencher, his views on Europe change purely to oppose the Conservative party and stir up a hornets nest.
That to me is typical of a remoaner "we didn't get the outcome we wished let's play havoc". If the will of the people isn't upheld then democracy in this country is finished and comrade Corbyn has succeeded in his quest.

A bit off piste I know.

Brown rolled the dice and got lucky.
Managers need a bit of luck sometimes, but changes needed to be made.

With this squad there are no guarantees that any other combination of starting eleven would have done better in that first half.
The three who came on have done very little when starting in recent games, so being dropped might give them the required kick up the backside.

Of the changes, Smith is probably worth persevering with as a starter.

And Dunne, one of the first names on the team sheet at the moment and doing a good job?

Great to celebrate a couple of goals.
There are obvious problems still, one of which is the need to try and find a settled 'best team'.

Tbf the Taylor thing has been done to death. We simply don't have another viable option, which although is presumably Brown's fault, is where we're at. Rico & Lancs on the other hand is frustrating as there are alternatives & in their own heads they both must realize that they would likely benefit from a spell on the sidelines. Especially in Rico's case. I think he could really make another season or two at this level of being a 20 min at the end man when we are chasing a game/in need of a goal.

Thoughts from the County forum..

Quote
Bloody annoying result because over the 90 minutes we were the better team. Being the better team doesn't give you points though, making the most of your chances usually does.

Played some lovely football today but we didn't carve out enough clear chances and wasted too many of the ones we did.

Kewell can fuck off, frankly. Played a stupid, arrogant, over attacking team at Bury last week and then spent his entire post-match digging out the players for not trying hard enough. This week he made an inexplicable substitution when we were 1-0 up, playing well and looking pretty comfortable, moving our one vaguely combative midfielder to right back two minutes before a man just walked through the space where he'd been mopping things up all afternoon. To blame the players for not working hard enough is some absolute sub-Mourinho bullshit, he needs to take some responsibility.

HK seemed surprisingly happy to hang the players out to dry for the second half performance, but you could argue that Phil Brownís changes improved Swindon (not by much, we still should have won easily), whereas HK failed to react when the momentum switched a little in their favour.

Most frustrating thing is that if weíd taken our chances, weíd now be looking back on another improved performance, some lovely football in patches and a five-point gap to the bottom two.

TBH, we should have strolled a 2-0 or 2-1 victory today....we were dominant for two-thirds of the match? but we couldn't get that important 2nd goal, poor subs and subsequent re-shuffling....plus a fragile confidence when under pressure.

For 60 minutes today we were by far the better team, against the worst opposition I've seen at Meadow Lane this season. But we blew it.

Kewell is completely out of his depth - publicly blaming the players for two defeats where youíve clearly got things massively wrong yourself (will excuse MK) is only going to lead one way.

Swindon introduced a couple of subs who had pace we introduced a sub with no pace and as a result they were able to control the midfield.

For 60 minutes we were totally dominant apart from one bobbling ball that Swindon almost connected with inside the box, before Ward hurled himself in front of the ball, partially clearing and the superb Aless finally got out of danger.

The niggling, horrid, play-acting, time-wasting Robins gave us the one-two sucker punch (aided by an own goal from the warrior-like, bandaged Turley) ....and it was Good-Night Vienna. Sad really, because apart from the result, I thoroughly enjoyed watching this game, but IMO we should have won this game comfortably from all the chances we created.....but that's football.

HK delivered a scathing verdict, saying Swindon just worked harder in that second half.

Stall was commentating on how you couldn't quite tell what formation Swindon were playing, because we had them penned in so tight at times that they were all standing on one another's toes....BUT, that's what happens when you don't "kill off" teams.

I thought the ref was pretty decent today....he certainly wasn't fooled by any of the Swindon play-acting.......one Swindon player hurled himself out of play writhing around in fake agony, Turley just shook his head in mystery and walked away, the Stead tackle that looked like studs had 8 Swindon players screaming for a red, but the ref already had the yellow in his hand....and the Swindon player on 85ish minutes that pretended our guy had thrown the ball at his cojones, then went "oops, the ref ain't buying it"

The only criticism I would have of the ref was that he should have booked at least 2 of their players for acting - the acting was so bad and so obvious it deserved some sort of punishment. The theatricals in front of the main stand by their number three was laughable. The ref may have been unsighted but the lino and fourth official had a perfect view.

I have not heard any interviews with PB as yet after the game but PB has to admit he got the team selection wrong.

Right up until the first substitution we were awful, no outlet in midfield, hardly any player looking deserving of a place in the team with only a couple of exceptions. It really was like watching us under Paul Hart, the flexible 451/433 with that line up did not work at all.

When we brought on some attacking players the game changed totally, we ran at them and created a few chances, County were really rubbish for a team that spent so heavily in the Summer and a team losing £3m a year currently, their fans must be distraught. Hemmings is one of the most weasteful strikers I have seen in years and he cost them around £150k in the summer, also Dennis for £150k from Chesterfield, Boldewijn for £100k from Crawley, with Vaughan, Kellett, Evina, Turley and Ward alongside already high earning Stead, Hewitt, Duffy and Tootle. They are hemorrhaging money.

Please PB don't start with Richards, he again did nothing all game, McGlashan only came to life when the substitutions were made, he was running round like a headless chicken before then with no clue as to where he should be playing.

I doubt Richards will come up against a slower poorer CB pairing than County had and yet he still didn't perform, Bayo needs to start alongside Woolery (if fit).

In defence Talyor was exposed all the time and he too only started to play when Alzate came on, Lancashire looked uninterested and slow and for me Woolf and Nelson would be a far better pairing, maybe even Conroy if he is fit enough, Knoyle did quite well against a quick winger. Nelson just needs to keep his head otherwise he is our best CB.

McCourt did ok, not good not rubbish he just sort of sat there in the middle in the Toums role, but Toums does it far better and breaks up play a lot faster than McCounrt, also Toums almost always plays simple passes whn he wins the ball to a red shirt rather than trying to launch it long as McCourt does, wastefully often.

Dunne did nothing all game other than get involved in a couple of minor scuffles, Smith looked quite good, won some good tackles and ran well with the ball, Doughty was unlucky as he was played well out of position and he didn't look comfortable there at all, not sure he deserved to be taken off but someone had to be.

Still not entirely convinced by Vigs, for me he isn't yet at the same standard as LMC, he made a couple of saves yesterday but they were all bread and butter saves, for every professional keeper, except maybe Moore and RCC last season ;)

Keepers are often judged on clean sheets and Vigs averages 1 clean sheet every 4.5 matches in his Swindon career, McCormick has averaged 1 clean sheet in every 2 games. Obviously the defences change a lot in front of them both but 50% clean sheets is pretty impressive.

This season we do seem to be playing that route a little too often, Doughty, Anderson, Alzate and especially McGlashan are all guilty in pretty much every game, but in all honesty pretty much every team we come up against do the same sort of thing "Doing a Neymar". It annoys me that every player feels they have to con the ref.

I'd drop Doughty for the acting. Anyone who's had a kick in the bollocks knows you dont roll around like that. A slump to the ground groaning yeah. Pretty pathetic really.

It was pathetic.

Knoyle also acted as though he'd been hit in the face at one point. McGlashan pretended he'd been injured by having the ball thrown at him, although that was somewhat half-hearted as he'd realised how ridiculous he looked as soon as he did. Abedayo got booked against Cambridge for a pathetic and obvious dive.

It has to fucking stop.

This Taylor, Lancashire, Richards thing is beginning to grind.

Taylor, not as consistent as last season, yes, but still drives this team.
He'd be missed if dropped.

Lancashire, a very shaky start to the season following return from injury, but has been performing with a decent level of consistency in the last few games.

Richards, needs a lot more help from the other two in a front three, but still the best option, from what I've seen, in that particular role. By all means give Bayo a go there, but won't be too long before the griping starts about certain aspects of his game.
Switching to a front two would provide a lot more options though. Bayo and Richards might work.
Woolery, if fully fit, is the one not really getting a look in, for whatever reason, in the Friday team selection bingo session.

Hmmm thats concerning, one win doesn't paper over his cracks for me, a few more wins and I may support him fully again but its going to take some convincing.

Also as mentioned before, PB has said that no player is immune from being dropped.

I call outright lie on that.

Richards, Taylor and Lancashire have proved that you are a hypocrite and now have to win my support back.

Credit where credit is due to PB - a real back to basics approach, pack the midfield to frustrate the opposition and play for a point. Fingers crossed we see a similar set up moving forward, at the CG we can probably afford the luxury of Alzate starting in place of one of the central midfielders for that added flair. Yes, one up top wonít be popular with everyone but when your FL status is on the line you have to sacrifice style.

Encouraging stuff.

I respect your opinion WB, I really do, but I don't personally see that they offer that much to the side at all, with the exception of Taylor currently, we have better options, but thats just my opinion.

Which makes you wonder why, if Dave, Conroy and Woolery get binned from the entire matchday squad for what may have just been an off day, why Taylor, Lancashire and Richards are undroppable after numerous consecutive games where they havenít performed.

It makes no sense.

Thing is because these fellas like Brown have been in the game years, they get a feel for a player being a proper pro or not, we've all seen the type who can be brilliant every so often but then drift onto the periphery.

There's a lot of games in a season and many of them you must play on autopilot, I think Brown is challenging the younger lads to try and get up to that level of consistency, that will give you a 15 year career at a good level.

Of course, there's an argument to be had about whether the chopping and changing is the best policy to get to that end, but we do seem to have a situation whereby all the players know that they will get chances to impress.

Spot on Reg. Itís often said that a side needs a core of 2 or 3 solid senior pros...we saw under Luke what can happen when that isnít there. Out of the three, Iíd say Lanchashire and Taylor warrant their places, the latter being our main creative outlet in the main, but I agree with those who say Richards should be dropped.

No worries.
If we all picked a team from this squad then I suspect that maybe 6 or 7 names would be consistent but the other 4 or 5 would differ greatly.

A fully fit Conroy over Lancashire, then yes wouldn't argue with that.
Wolfie looks ok as backup at RB and CB.

The centre forward situation should be the top priority for sorting out in January.

Just noticed, no back to back league wins under PB yet.
Pressure is still on.

Saturday was an important win, but just buys PB a bit of time.  His task is turn around the home form, which will be far from easy as it is at a historic level of shitness, and the atmosphere at the CG is toxic at best.

To give some sort of context, this run of 6 games without a home league win in Div 4, is our worst ever, beating the run of 5 home games without a win achieved by Taylor/Brown last season.  The task is made more difficult by the fact that Carlisle are one of those annoying sides who are much better on the road than at Brunton Park. That's followed by a string of home games til the end of Jan where it is quite difficult to see where a win comes from..... maybe Stevenage, but their away form is solid.

On the older players, Taylor is being, not just exposed, but targeted by other teams, they have said as much.  We donít have another option though, so you probably have to play him.  Lancashire has a problem, that seems clear with his mobility, which on its own we could probably cover to keep experience in the side but I donít think it works when he is covering Taylor.  Keep Taylor and rip Lancashire would be my choice and find a new left back in the window enabling Taylor to sit games out or come on as a sub.

Richards is not finished unless we insist on playing him as a lone striker as we have been all season pretty much.  He cannot play that role and combined with his age it makes for unpleasant viewing.  Not his fault, just never going to be a battler and hold up the play.  He wants to turn he wants to be facing goal.  If we go with two he might still offer the poachers instinct but with one up top I cannot see how Brown does not see the problem.  Probably another example of the midfield recruitment creating a squad shortfall.  If he wanted to play one up he needed to get someone who can play that role if he feels is any better than Richards.

He did actually say in his interview, the first 30 minutes was down to me, was the first thing he actually said.  Not necessarily admitting he got the selection wrong but at least accepting some of the blame.

Brown said before the season started that Taylor couldnít be expected to start every game.

He has selected him for every league game. Dereliction of duty on Brownís behalf in his Ďrecruitmentí.

I was away also. Had to rely on TEF for updates as I was sat in the bleachers watching Portsmouth Wenches v Norfolk Brawds at Havant Sports Centre. Roller Derby is different, thatís for sure. Anyway great result and as I have stated, other than Paul Ploughman & his doppelgšnger none of you will give a shit about how the three points were won at the end of the season. Onwards to Essex on Saturday.

Say what you want about Taylor - but he was still the player who put in a cracking cross, a long way up field for a 30 something "left back" that brought about our winning goal on Saturday. He is definitely being targeted at left back due to his lack of pace (he's never really been a great defender anyway!), but you can't question a bloke's fitness and commitment to the cause, when he's in the final third in the 80th minute effectively winning us the game. It was a quality cross with pace, don't seem to recall anyone mentioning it. I'd bring in a left back in the window and player Taylor on the left side of midfield - he's still our most creative player - which doesn't say much for the rest of the team. Alzate has the potential, but that's what it is at the moment.

We've no idea what a MT who isn't being asked to play 50 games looks like. He might be less vulnerable if he's not being ran into the ground continually.

As you said, a LB to rotate with him and then take over next summer is the biggest priority in January. Weren't we linked with someone from the LOI?

Us and several other league clubs too apparently. Don't remember his name but very highly rated.

I mentioned about playing MT at LM with a decent defender behind him and was shouted down by some members, I think it could work.

Nobody doubts his commitment or general fitness, its his lace of pace and defending ability that is noticed most often, that and his free kick/corner/crosses delivery this season have been pretty awful 95% of the time and not the level you have come to expect from him.

We need a left back and a centre forward as priority, because Richards cannot play the lone striker role, and that seems to be the prefered way for PB to set up, simple.

That doesn't mean that Richards is surplus it just means hes not suited to the way PB sets up the team at the moment, he could still be of use coming off the bench or as 1 of 2 central strikers should PB decide to play that way.

If we persist in playing him at left back with nobody supporting him in defence or in front of him, the poor sold will be dead by the end of the season.

I think plenty of people have mentioned he has one key attribute, his ability to deliver a ball.  The question is how to get that out of him.  This season it has become clear that playing left back is ruining him.

His cross was mentioned.  He has the ability to do that more often but I think the demand on his mental and physical abilities is too much this season - having to defend when having little support and having to run up and down the pitch is detrimental to his game, so his crossing is less accurate and less often.  There was one attack where he tried to chase the player back and was fucked by the half way line.  He kept going, but he looked like he'd have taken a bench if it had been available for lay down.  So, his commitment is not at question , nor what he can do well.  I just think he doesn't have the legs for left back anymore and it does reduce his better qualities due to fatigue in the game.

It was obvious after his first game last season that asking him to have legs was going to be an issue - he was awful in central midfield.  He was better at left back when we had work horses upfront and in midfield and Lancashire hadn't lost his spine (literal, not questioning his effort), or whatever it is that is wrong with his body.

I can understand why he divides opinion these days.

On the one hand, the Lincoln manager post-match near enough named him as our weakness. Taylor got rinsed on the day, and was close to tears by the end of the game.

On the other hand, Kewell post-match on Saturday named him as our main strength. And he clearly had a point. 

I still think he's great, partly because, when he gets it right, he's a joy to watch... partly because his attitude is superb, and on a different level to most of the old timers who we've signed during my 20 years of watching... and partly because in recent weeks he's been behind most of our goals (granted, not many, but that makes them all the more important). Golden chances that we've missed (off the top of my head, Dunne and Richards vs Northampton, Richards vs Exeter) have also come straight from him. Sure, he's erratic because he's being overloaded, but I won't believe that 95% of his distribution is "awful".

We went to Crewe without him, who have never been the most solid bunch (we put 7 past them in 2 games last season, and they conceded 6 to Colchester this season) and didn't work their keeper all night. We should be careful what we wish for, and work to accommodate him in the side - with an absolute priority of replacing him properly by the summer.

Having read back again - his cross was mentioned in a very fleeting comment about him being involved in the goal. It was a brilliant cross, the defender should have let it go as I have no doubt we'd have fluffed it! It must have been one of the 5% of decent crosses he's apparently put in this season ;) I agree with everything else you say, to me we're expecting too much from someone at the stage of his career. The management (Taylor included) must know he's getting rinsed by the opposition wingers, but they believe they have no-one better in that position at present - the proof is whether they do anything about it in the January window. Be careful what you wish for though, we could end up with another Purkiss type full back, who can't defend or attack! I'm more concerned about the striker position to be honest.


Title: Re: Notts County v Swindon official match day thread
Post by: RobertT on Monday, October 29, 2018, 14:59:28
There are ways to help him, we tried it second half where Dunne spent most of his time trying to get out wide when defending to double up and it helped a little.  I'd prefer not to have Lancashire inside him - he gets sucked out a lot s he can't seem to win the header without going through the forward or the pair of them both drop off the attacker once turned.  Not sure if Woolfenden being there would improve that, but I'd like to at least try.

Seeing that we insist on going with one central striker, that is a must fix in the window.  Even someone who can't score but can play the role of bringing in others would be an improvement because Richards can't score in that role either and doesn't have the instincts to hold it up, he wants to face the other way.
