Title: You might be vaguely optimistic. So here goes - Swindon Town v The Cobblers
Post by: bathford on Wednesday, February 24, 2021, 11:41:49
From last nights performance, we seem to be improving.  It was good to see the encouraging posts on this Forum and an active MoM topic.

I'm therefore keeping the upward looking theme titles for this match.

I say a 2-1 win with Sheridan promoted to 'God like status' if we pull it off.

Same team as last night, bar Lyden for Palmer and Hunt for Conroy.

5 - 2 home win.

Garrick hat trick, 2 goals from Twine.

Sheridan wins over the doubters and Sgt Spooge will revel in the glory.

According to the Cobblers forum, its looking likely they will appoint current caretaker manager Jon Brady before Saturday as full time manager.

The 46 year old Aussie has only managed at Brackley previously and never higher than the Confernece North level.

He would be the cheap option after promotion from the U18 team to 1st team.

Some of their slightly more deluded fans (yes I know we have a few too) genuinely think they have a chance of signing Paul Cook even though he turned down Cardiff City recently!

Taking note of Swindons historic habit of doing well against teams they should lose to then going on to lose to teams they should beat can only see a Cobblers win here.

Tempted to pile on at the 2/1 being offered.

Had a read of the Cobbelrs forum and they seem very optimistic about beating us tomorrow.

I was surprised to see just how shit their results have been.

In the league they have just 1 win in the last 14 league games with 5 games drawn and 8 defeats picking up just 8 points.

In that time they have scored just 7 times, but in 14 games they have only managed to score in 3 of those games! 11 games they failed to even get 1 goal in. In those games they have conceded 22 times.

The Northampton score is first in each result 0-2, 0-4, 0-4, 3-1, 0-0, 1-2, 0-0, 0-2, 0-0, 0-1, 0-2, 0-0, 3-4, 0-0. Thats LLLWDLDLDLLDLD.


In the same 14 match run Swindon have by contrast Swindon picked up 9 point winning 3 times with 3 draws scoring 15 goals and conceding 24 times and failing to score in 5 of those games.

A run of LLDLWLDLLWLLWD.

It appears that the shoe boys have a problem scoring (famous last words for any Swindon defence!).

Their joint top scorers are Sam Hoskins, Danny Rose and Harry Smith on 4 goals with Smith no longer at the club.

They have ex town players Mark Marshall, Alan Sheehan and ex Town loaneed Lloyd Jones n their books as well as assistant manager Marc Richards.

Swindon have recent signing from the Cobblers Christopher Missilou and ex Norfamps loanee Hallam Hope.

Play like we did on Tuesday and we will easily beat them, play like we did against Crewe and we could lose against this lot.

Crucial game, I have put my money on a 3-1 win with Twine 1st scorer 70/1. Also  9/2 us to win and BTTS looks a decent bet. Apparently Northampton playing less direct than under Curle. Ex Swindon players Lloyd Jones, Alan Sheehan and Mark Marshall will start for them. Undoubtedly will be tense but hope we play the same team that started against Lincoln and play with same intensity and confidence and get a much needed 3 points.

Neither had I until I had a specific look, no wonder Curle was sacked, their scoring record is as bad as any in the top 7 divisions in the pyramid in recent games.

It is set up for a heavy defeat now, obviously.

The first game was a frustrating defeat where we should have got something against a pretty poor side.
At least we've pinched the scorer and assister from that night.

Might be more difficult to pass it around today in what might be a crowded midfield and against a more direct style than on Tuesday.
I suspect that if we win it won't be straightforward. Then again it never is.

I'm really worried about this. We were up for Lincoln and put lots of energy in to stopping them playing, while they made the mistake of letting us play. I don't think Northampton will do this. I fear that they will be better at grinding us down than we are.

This is a 6 pointer and I'm really worried we'll mess it up!

Northampton are in the worst 3 sides we have played...yet still lost, they looked woeful in the away game but we couldnt score.

Under the new caretaker Job Brady they play more football than under Sheridan mk2 Curle so it will be a bit more of a midfield battle I am guessing than hoof vs hoof.

If we play like we did vs Crewe we will likely lose, if we play like we did vs Lincoln we will likely win, chalk and cheese.

Play to our players strengths as we did Tuesday and we will muller them but I fear we will revert to type and go back to old school Shez today and suffer defeat.

The sun is shining in south west and I am feeling very relaxed about the game today, especially with everything else that is going on in the world.

I am sure that the manager will want to build on recent performances and results.

Post by: Legends-Lounge on Saturday, February 27, 2021, 13:50:29
A draw would be marginally beneficial (as an away point) to the Cobblers than us. A win either way is really critical, so who has the cahoonas to grab this six pointer by the scruff of the neck and go for it?

Neither team can afford to loose so itís going to be an interesting battle. On balance Iím going for a home win though I am torn between 2-0 or 2-1.

On one hand I cannot shake the feeling whoever we play against weíll concede no matter how shit the opposition is or looks to be and looking at the Cobblers form itís difficult to see where theyíll get a goal from, then on the other hand youíll be forgiven for thinking that at some point Father Christmas will swing by and shout Ďforgot this one, sorryí and boom theyíve scored.

The pitch should be relatively smooth though patchy but with little or no wind and if we play it along the ground we wonít find a better day to do it. Equally if either side decide that the long ball onto the forwards is the way forward then for us it could ..., no, will certainly cause problems. Ok decided 2-1 to Dinoís red & white army.

We just need Archie to do the basics, sounds silly to say that, but he just needs to get through a game by saving shots and stopping the ball going in, forget about coming for balls and trying to kick 50 yard balls to the strikers feet - just stay on your line and be a GK.

There is a temptation to be storming off of your line and be an extra defender and really make your mark - Archie makes his mark today by doing the simple stuff - early signs from the corners are good, i really wish him the best

He is a professional footballer whose chosen position is goalkeeper.  Its not as if he has been dragged in off the street.

Twine still goes to floor far too easily when he should stay on his feet, looking for a free kick that is never going to be given.

Twines goal deserves to win a game, otherwise we really havent looked like scoring.

Just looking at the pitch. It looks like a ploughed field. Is this intentional? Have we got a drainage problem or are we spending less money on pitch upkeep? Or has the weather just been bad?

Well, Twine aside, that was pretty fucking atrocious.

I missed the Lincoln game, based on that 45 minutes I think everyone was lying about our performance.  How can either of these two teams be in League One.

Agree. But we have looked second best in midfield again - Twine being the only one with quality. Payne has made 2-3 little runs and Palmer has delivered a couple of decent dead balls again. But, they were winning the second ball.

Interesting to see Matthews starting to look to roll the ball out rather than hoof towards the end. Seems we were trying to bring our midfield into it.

Conroy is having a shocker. We can't seem to pass to another red shirt. If we could do that, we'd destroy this lot but it's been awful game so far. Harsh on Archie to be in this position but it was always going to happen when whats his name left with Kovar in January...

Well he isn't, hence why he only got his place 10 mins before ko.  Even more important that he gets through today by just doing the simple stuff, i.e. getting something on the ball and stopping it going in the net.

Not really mate but a better delivery and it would have been a good scoring chance for Broadbent/Conroy/Hope.

FT 2-1

7 points from the last 3 games. First time we have gone 3 games unbeaten in almost exactly a year!

2 poor teams but every win counts especially against the bottom of the league clubs, we probably edged it over all but 2nd half was a lot better than the 1st half performance.

Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman my MotM for chasing everything and scoring the winning goal.

60 minutes isnt that late late?  :D

massive win. 7 points from 9. top of the relegation league.
a standard real gritty predictable match but we coped extremely well and had the better chances.
broadbent and conroy win everything in the air.
i actually really like a bit of grounds atm shows some class turns and composure.
well done to matthews, in a relegation battle that must have been massively nervous.

one thing to add about these wins we clock up and the performances. its a very very hardworking team that works for each other and you can tell they dont have the style but they have the fight

Wright:
- Points by all means necessary
- They started both halves better than us
- Goal by Twine vital
- Got Garrick more in the game and he was a threat
- Vital, vital game
- The best teams are athletic and have technical skill. But they also have desire
- You have to dig in
- It was a tough time when we werent winning
- Two tough games coming up
- Every team needs a match winner. Twines goal was vital
- Wollacott has a knee problem
- Matthews didnt have much time to t hink about it. He came in and did well.
- He could have done better with the goal. Made a couple of good saves. Kicking was good
- Dont know if Wollacott will be able to play on Tuesday
- There are a couple of other keepers we have looked at. Mildenhall will assess Wollacott on Monday
- Thought we played well footballing wise at Lincoln
- We are fighting for our lives and we need to grind things out
- Garrick is a natural winger. He's better on the right. His positional play needs help.
- Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman: If you get crosses in and give him chances he will score. He might lose his energy and legs but he wont lose his goal scoring ability
- Sunderland under pressure to get results like us
- Odimayo slight tweak of hamstring. Scan on Monday.
- Joel Grant, Jordan Lyden and Tyler Smith trained thursday and friday
- Anthon y Grant is not cleared to train at all yet. He's gone through a couple of protocols but still has to go through more
- Luke Haines back from loan

Imagine had Sheridan opted for no recognised GK on the bench (as he has done several times in the past) today? It would have been very embarrassing.

Absolutely happy with the win and now isn't the time to overly moan, whinge or batter but the cumulative state of affairs for the club off the pitch are still very uncomfortable; as well as other goings on regarding the management too.

Huge credit to the players for starting to dig their way out of this. Well done lads and well done Archie Matthews regardless of today's outcome.

Matthews 6
Came in at short notice and did his job. Made me feel a bit nervy at times. Looked as if things were happening too quickly at times in front of him. Couple of takes at the second attempt could have been punished. Defence protected him enough to see us through. Only time they left him exposed, Northampton scored. Thought he could have done better there. If Northampton had peppered him with shots, the result may have been different. He's not ready for an extended run, but I hope today helps him progress (He looked better than he did in pre-season).

Grounds 7
Did his job well. Quietly unspectacular.

Broadbent 7
Ditto Grounds. The pair stopped everything in the air. Had one or two strange passing moments, but other than that did well.

Conroy 6.5
Grew into the game. Looked at sixes and sevens at first but improved after we went 1-0 down. Some of his first half distribution was awful. Thought he was a different player in the second half.

Caddis 7
Not overly troubled defending. Couple of decent runs and crosses going forward. Excellent time wasting when we were in the lead.

Thompson 5
Poor today and deserved to be taken off.

Palmer 6
Couple of nice deliveries. Helped break things up but created nothing.

Payne 6
Flashes of energy with darting runs. Panics when getting near their penalty box. Can't shoot for toffee it seems - He snatches at it.

Twine 8
First half midfield general with excellent vision and superb linking up play. Wonderful strike from the free kick. Went to ground too easily though. Can't seen him signing a new contract and staying with us. Think a bigger team will poach him, as he really has developed into a player. When played in the right role and with a better midfield around him (cos ours is poor) he would stand out.

Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman 8.5
Led the line superbly. Bullied defenders, held the ball up, played a couple of lovely balls to set up others, including the pass of the match to slide Garrick in (who dived at the edge of the area when he should have stayed up and taken a shot). Scored the winner. What more could we ask for?

Garrick 8
Another good performance. He is a very limited player, but used his speed and tenacity well. Great bit of endeavour to win the ball and put the ball on Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman's head for the winner.

Subs:
Hope 5
Contributed nothing. Had the ball a couple of times but did nothing.

Another good performance. He is a very limited player, but used his speed and tenacity well. Great bit of endeavour to win the ball and put the ball on Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman, Brett Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman's head for the winner.

I appreciate all the effort you put in with the post match Comms and your player ratings after a match. But to say Twine goes down too easily when he promptly gets up to smash it into the top corner, and that Garrick is a very limited player when heís scored one and has 2 assists since being played in the right position seems harsh.

I think Twine gets fouled a lot and this may be a deliberate tactic. Any idea about what Power was chatting to Sheridan about?

I take your point, but let me try to elaborate to explain what I mean:

Twine: In the modern game, players tend to try to gain a free kick for the merest of touches. The person who I think is best at that in our team is A Grant. The amount of free kicks he gets when facing goal and trying to get out of trouble is astonishing. I think he gets so many because he is big and powerful and makes it look as if he has sustained a real mauling (when he hasn't)  Twine does get fouled and and does try to draw the foul when in a dead ball position. However, I'm talking about other times, when out of shooting range. When battling  for the ball I think he gets brushed off a little too easy. He tries to show he's been fouled, but the ref sees it that its just that he's not as strong as some of the combative midfielders at this level. I'll try to point it out in a match when I see it next.

Garrick: He's young and he's raw. He doesn't read the game that well and doesn't adopt great positions at times. That's because he is learning the game. His goal against Lincoln was awesome. His battling to make the goals for Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman against Lincoln and Northampton was good too. I'm not disputing that - He was my MoM against Lincoln and close yesterday too. I thought Wright said something interesting after the match yesterday though. He talked about the fact that Garrick is better on the wing, especially on the side next to the dug out, where they can call to him and help him with his positioning (Cue the comments about Sheridan effing and blinding). So, by 'limited' I mean that he has pace and good feet but he's not the finished article.

Hope 5
Contributed nothing. Had the ball a couple of times but did nothing.
Our tactical mastermind must've clocked that everything was coming down the right for us, I assumed he wanted Hope to be backstick when crosses came in.
Hope did do a run inside Brett, Brett, Brett Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman, Brett Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman in injury time and was a bit miffed when B,B,BP started to run the ball to the corner (to end up running the ball out for a throw)

Twine goes to the deck far too easily for me, yes sometimes it works and he wins a free kick but more often than not the ref can see whats happening and no free kick is given, if he stayed on his feet longer and made an attempt to evade the foul the ref would more likely than not give the free kick he craves.

Garrick is a limited footballer but then so is almost every player in this league, they are either limited footballers with speed and strength (Garrick) or good footballers with limited athletic ability (Brett, Brett, Brett, Brett Pitman, Brett Pitman). They are in thie league because of that face.

What pleases me most in recent games is that Sheridactyl has finally looked at the players available and started to play to each players strengths and play them in the correct positions for a change, round blocks in round holes rather than round blocks in square holes as he has tried to play previously, shoehorning players to fit an archaic hoofball system from the 1970s which gained no admirers or results.

I think it's a disease now in modern football JJ as they see the likes of Salah, Mane & Rashford regularly getting penalties plus they are probably encouraged/coached to go down if they can gain an advantage but nobody would admit to it.

I'm glad Twine is doing it. The amount of free kicks given against us for the same thing this season is very high. About time we levelled the playing field. I'd happily dive our way to survival.

I detest diving

I detest players rolling around clutching their legs in a robust tackle

I detest defecting players running up to the ball to prevent a free kick being taken quickly.

I detest automatic yellows for tackles from behind, even clean ones

etc.

But it's all accepted in the modern game. And if you don't join them you won't beat them

I have no problem with players diving and conning the ref if they do it cleverly but I am certain if Twine stays on his feet longer and tries to evade the foul then I think he would actually be given the foul, because 90% of the time I think he is genuinely fouled.

Because he looks like he is going to ground too easily the refs hardly ever give them, make an attempt to stay on your feet the ref will give them.

Look at the foul at Lincoln, right on the edge of the box, Twine was literally flattened but because he had gone to ground too easily several times prior to that the ref ignored it totally thinking it was him looking for the foul.

But that's unfortunately how the game is and it's nothing new.

It irks me, especially when considering a very talented player in Cristiano Ronaldo has made a career out of it. It irks even more because he's such a great player, he doesn't even need to do it?

At the end of the day, when Martin Keown has started wearing lensless fashion specs and roll necks, you know its over for football.

I would absolutely hate to be a defender in the game now. Its almost an impossible task. Players run into you and get freekicks/penos. It's not possible to just jockey a player for 90mins of every single game. A tackle has to be made at some point.

Refs are to blame here as well.  They never give a penalty and rarely a free kick unless the player goes to ground.

For me it's the 1990s- as an STFC supporter and looking at things from a wider football perspective.  Inevitably, one's age will have an impact.

Late 70s for me too, although I loved the way the club leapt back to life under Macari from 84 onwards, great times, way better than the 90s for me.
