Kovar poor?

Explain yourself.


Yeah, poor is harsh. But he fills me with 0 confidence. That drop of absolute gift of a cross should have been 1-1. If you think this lad is up too it, your way off it.

Not quite what I saw. Smith seemed to receive a hefty challenge in the first half and looked quite immobile afterwards - Really noticeable as he is so quick.

Stevens, is quick, but not as creative.


Couldn't disagree more. Smith was still winning second balls and driving forward from midfield second half.

Sorry I thought you was on about M Smith

Thought that was a terrible game of football, that we won, which is nice.

Adding the third player in midfield made us look a lot less open, shame Payne looks awful in that role.  I'd have him out wide instead but keep the same formation.

Grant looks a lot better when he only has to worry about a small box of the field in front of the defenders.

Thought Donohue looked decent today, Odimayo was solid, Baudry was OK and Grounds is getting worse.  Overall, the formation and only one stinker in defence helped.  Baudry and Grounds nearly conjured a moment of pure comedy though, with both of them attacking a through ball in the air and both missing it as a result.  Their forward had stopped though.

Pitman's shot first half was as bad as Fryer in goal the other day, in terms of embarrassing for a paid footballer.  Looked ragged, poor touches, scores a goal.  I suppose if he could manage that every game or two you'd take it, problem is it's every 5 or 6 games currently.  Hopefully it really is just fitness.

A 1-0 win is welcome, shows that we can easily battle to mid table this season if we can just concentrate.

Yes, after that hefty challenge it damaged his MCL as his foot was planted ..Possibly grade 1/2 Tear suggested... scan on Monday,  stupidly played on in 1st half and then played 10 mins in 2nd half before knee locked. Out for a while.... I will know more on Monday.

Gutted ... and so is he...

RF...Out...

Do you know why the physio doesnít step in and tell him not to go back out? V sorry to hear heís not in good shape, but with a small squad, we just canít go and take those risks if it means heís going to be out for weeks longer than he would have been if he came straight off.

Canít we have any luck.
Down to the bones, a glimmer of hope with a few due back within weeks and now another injury.
Letís hope the injury is not that bad.

That picture is the best thing posted on this forum in a while

Solid performance, not sexy and imagine the mood would be different had we not scored but we needed to solidify and we did. 3 in midfield and more conservative full back play helped massively

Kovar made a good stop from a long range effort in the second half and distribution was good, but still looked hopeless at crossed and nearly chucked one in at the end. Better than fryer but remains a position of concern

Sorry to hear that. He didn't look quite right today. Let's hope he heals quickly. Best wishes from all on the TEF.
