Title: Shrewsbury T vs STFC MoM
Post by: Red Frog on Saturday, November 14, 2020, 17:51:39
Hard to call today. Lots of errors, some good moments, but more a victory of collective will than individual brilliance.

Joel Grant or Hallam Hope for me, Grant a few mistakes but also looked threatening, took his goal really well and looks more comfortable than he does off the wing. Hope put a huge shift in and his work rate contribute to the equaliser in the 93rd minute which is some going for someone who started the game.

Joel Grant for me was poor first 30 but then he got a lot better and took the goal really well.

But for me Matt Smith grew into the game in the 2nd half and for the goal at the end he gets my vote.

Hallam Hope for me - for his work rate, adapting to A different position after Pitman came on, his goal and contribution to the late equaliser.

Hope for me. He’s this season’s Jerry Yates.

Matt Smith, head and shoulders. Too good for us.

Difficult one again - Matt Smith for me as he grew into the game. The more influential he became, the more threatening we were.

I went for Hallam Hope, hard working and the ball generally stuck with him. Matt Smith again was very good.

Hallam Hope for the same reason, hardworking,versatile and scored a terrific goal

My thoughts exactly. Hope worked so hard, deserved my vote.

Hope edged it over Matt Smith because he was effective and worked hard the whole game, Smith had a poor first thirty minutes or so.

Good to see Hope get some credit after it was thought that he should be jettisoned earlier this season

I would say, after his then manager signing him, for whatever reason the NC didn't seem to have any faith in hope. Not even appearing to give any charity towards the player via a chance of starting. There's always been an element of love held in reserve here for Hallam.

Good squad player, deserves to be utilised.

Surprised there are so many votes for Hope. Thought he tried hard, but was pretty ineffective up top on his own. He tried hard, but was better out wide.

The first past the post voting system makes this a tricky one.

Joel Grant for me. Possibly his best game for us so far.
One poor pass that caused problems but took his goal well and in the main looked sharp and tried to be positive when in possession.

Not sure quite how you can say he was ‘ineffective’! He scored a great goal and also provided the assist and therefore had a huge hand in getting us a point.

He did both of those things when he was moved out onto the left. To me he always looks better when he is out left rather than when he plays in the middle. He tried hard when he was centre forward, but played better (and had success) when he was wide left.

Hope, Joel G and Matt S the only possible MOMs.  Saw signs of Anthony Grant becoming more influential (as a pairing with Matt S) whilst Caddis' constant grafting also made a contribution beyond his 2 assists (which, tbf, left Joel G and Hope with it all to do).  Even Hunt, whom I'd written off as ineffectual at half time, put in a great 2nd half shift.

Closest race yet for the coveted TEF MoM title, and the second-highest number of voters after the Hull game, curiously. The Sheridan bounce?

I don't know if its that or the absolute relief of such a late goal its like shaking a bottle of champagne and letting the cork out.

Getting something from a match we were 2-0 down and 3-1 down has a real positive effect on fans.

A fair enough statement. But I guess his MOM votes are for his performance over the whole game including switching wide left when he came more into the game and had vital input on our comeback.

The thing you get with Hope over Pitman is non-stop work rate and his performances on the left of a 3 are encouraging.

Fixed. Going by Sheridan's post-match presser. We can attribute that match to Hunt.
