Title: STFC vs Oldham A MoM
Post by: Red Frog on Saturday, March 12, 2022, 16:55:34
Pulled that one out of the fire. We were in danger of winning everything except the game, so it was so good to see justice done at the death. Badly lacked teeth up front, but Oldham were so limited that anything less than a win would have been a travesty.

Difficult one for me, Egbo did well when he came on but of course doesnt deserve the MotM.

1 good cross from Iandolo for the goal but a lot of his play today was poor intermixed with some great stuff.

Conroy played very well all game as did Reed.

Payne also in with a shout for a very good performance all the game he was on the pitch for.

For me I give it to Conroy for the goal and his overall play.

Even forgetting his goal, Conroy had a fine game.

Payne will be a huge bonus now hes approaching full fitness. Egbo looks classy.

Ironically, Hallam Hope did his bit today without even realising it.
Surprised he wants to play under that twat too.

There wasn't really a stand out performer but Reed if we're being honest. He is much better than L2 level.

Reed for me.  Was instrumental today in our win and also made some vital blocks to breakdown Oldhams counter attacks.

Reed for me, as much for his defensive display as well as his use of the ball in the middle

Captain Conroy - cracking performance and scored against his best mate.

Not his biggest fan but captains performance from Dion today culminating in a last ditch winner. No brainer.

Thought everyone else was average but possibly harsh on Payne and Reed who are a fantastic pair of midfielders. Think I hold them to higher standards than other players. They should run every game at this level.

All of this completely agree. Conroy and Reed our best distributors with the ball today. Good to see Conroy put the ball out for throw ins when under pressure, won lots of headers too. Proper performance.

Conroy for me, even without the goal. Faultless display and showed his full range of passing. Its games like these where Conroy can be at his best, as he has time to bring the ball out from the back, without being put under significant pressure from a high press.. Also Oldham didn't really get many crosses in to the box or look a threat from set pieces. Sutton may provide a sterner test of his and the whole teams defensive capabilities.

Conroy, Payne, Reed top 3. Gone for Conroy

Nobody had a bad game really, sure the final ball wouldn't come but that's how it goes sometimes

Wollacot had nowt to do
O'Brien and Hunt were consistently unspectacular
Conroy played closer to his potential.
Odimayo I thought had a good game - Made a couple of mistakes, but generally good.
Reed hard working in midfield. Made a couple of superb defensive blocks.
Aguiar seemed to get in good positions but when his fancy flicks don't work he can be a bit of a liability. A luxury player perhaps, but made a few things happen.
Payne had lots of energy but kept trying to play a killer pass when it wasn't on in the first half.
Davison tried hard but seems to freeze in the penalty area. Never quite in the right place.
JML. Garner said he played really well and stretched the defence. Not sure I agree.
Iandolo looks a different player when Williams is on the park. Lots of good but also a bit of meh!
Subs:
Williams gave us that added spark and urgency
Egbo was a lot better than I expected! Looks good.
Parsons got in the right position 3 times and should have scored. I so hope he takes a chance and kicks on.

So, for me, I think it comes down to a workmanlike performance from Reed or improved form from Conroy. Think I'll go for the latter.

He's a great commentator, we're very lucky.

Made not having comms on ifollow for the first 10 mins all the more disconcerting.

Im going to go against the grain and give it to Odi. I thought he had a great game

Conroy.
Measured with his short passing and some good accurate longer balls as well.
Maybe to his advantage that Oldham allowed us to play out from the back.

Payne was excellent in the first half but faded in the second which was understandable.

Odimayo did very well at LB with some good forceful runs.

Don't always notice the defensive work that Reed does but was impressed by that side of his game yesterday.

Good for JML to get the start, felt that he has struggled to make any impact from the bench in recent appearances.
Yesterday he was fully involved from the start and that should give him some confidence.

Thought that Parsons did ok when he came on, just needs that first Town goal.

Egbo looks like an athlete that can play a bit on first viewing and made a difference.
Will be interesting to see if he gets any starts.
Anyway.

(On a) Freeee-ee Mandela Egbo.
Fours years in Germany.
Now he wants promotion to Division 3.
.....

Yeah, needs work.  :-[

Another vote for Conroy. (I feared when I voted I may be in the minority so pleasantly surprised) He brought the ball out intelligently and more often than not was able to start an attacking move by finding a red shirt. His passing ability is absolutely unquestionable and games against sides that have absolutely no attacking ability at all is where Conroy comes into his own. It's just when we play teams that are pretty dangerous where he comes unstuck. Against Oldham there was barely any defending to do, so he was able to play without an aggressive press and look like Beckenbauer.

A glowing reference for a centre half  ;) :D :D

You may jest but in recent years we have had centre backs and keepers gift the opposition goals when faced with such an inept strike force and have cost us games.

Unfortunately I think it's true. Conroy's best attributes are his ability to bring the ball out from the back and his passing. I think it's the 'other' side of his game that he struggles with. It's not necessarily just Dion that we should blame, the whole defensive unit - particularly when balls are crossed in, are culpable. He also makes errors when pressed hard that for me stick out in my mind more than others. Luckily in league 2 he gets away with a lot, but in League 1 would be punished a lot more.

Conroy had a good game as did AK.
A peach of a free kick from Iandolo leading to the goal.
A very promising short debut from Egbo.
Baudry played his part from the sidelines by the looks of things ;)
No one had a bad game to be honest, some were better than others.
Conroy gets my vote for Saturday.

I think Conroy would get less grief from fans if, when he fucked up, he put his hands up and accepted responsibility, as opposed to pointing and waving his arms around and blaming others for not dealing with his shit pass etc.

Their keeper for me. Going down for about three mins in the second half when there was clearly fuck all wrong with him ensured maximum drama out of the 96th minute winner.

Not forgetting the chap who slightly grazed his head on the advertising hoardings. That was worth a good two minutes of et.

While on the subject, what is ET short for? Because hes got little legs. soapy tit wank

I meant IT of course, not ET. Turn it off and on again

Didnt think there was a standout performance. Thought JML did well in first half. But have to give it to Conroy- all the shit he took off that cunting dinosaur last year. Taken a lot of abuse this year also. I hope he turns it round and can kick on - were gonna need him to be on top form for the run in.
