Getting this in early. We'll be stuffed like the turkey we are.
Need to get vocal about our current plight, great opportunity to do it with a full home end.

Town 0-4 Disney att: 13,635 (2,150 away)

Looking forward to seeing a full CG - but thatís about it. If we can at least make a game of it for a bit and get the old place rocking again would be a bonus. Christ knows how this has sold out with the shite served up for weeks.

Just imagine what we could do with a sympathetic, forward looking owner and a competent manager.

I think we'd see one of our biggest gates of the season on boxing day whoever we were playing, BUT the bandwagon Wrexham thing is an added distraction to our annual shite. Will be behind Clem on the day, that's in a seating capacity only. Be interesting to see his reaction if our lot kick off.

Just what is the home capacity at the CG these days?
Roughly...

TE 1,900
DRS 5,000
Arkells 4,800 (plus 1,200 away)
So around 11,700.
Away is 1,200 plus bank 2,100. Around 14,900 capacity.

So, is everyone ready for our Big Cup Final?

There will no doubt be a few, fresh from the traditional Christmas Day family row who will relish the potential for some more vocal chord action today.
I don't know, having thought about it, wouldn't particularly want things to get overly toxic today, season of goodwill to all and all that.

There will be plenty of wise men watching on for sure but not so many good shepherds in the reserved posh seats sadly.

Wrecsam will possibly be looking for a similar trajectory to Luton through the leagues.
Remains to be seen if that involves Phil Parkinson bumping up against his own glass ceiling along the way.
Mentioned this because Luton's visit in 2017 sprang to mind, 0-0 at half time ending as a 5 goal defeat.
Elliot Lee also featured for Luton and scored that day.

Just want to see the team give of their best today but will expect to be trudging home under a cloud of disappointment.

It is amazing to me how small most of our players are compared to other sides.  Wouldnít be a big deal if that had any speed to their play but first pass is almost always backwards so getting bullied in our matches.

Another observation I have is when we do get the ball moving forward.  Our advanced players just stand on a line with the defenders waiting to run instead of moving across the defenders and making themselves available for a pass or through ball.  Wha type of coaching is this?

Is it the players not caring and being lazy or is it the manager not coaching and adapting.  Being stuck in the possession game?   It doesnít seem like the manager can inspire the players or players at this level donít respond to a coach ?

The quietest Iíve ever seen the CG for a Ďsell outí. Canít blame the fans either, there was genuinely nothing to get excited about. The moment where Kemp had held the ball up and there was no Swindon player above the half way line summed up that half. Insipid first half. Would be nice to have RHM on the bench, not that I think heíd completely turn this round, but would be nice to see someone have a run at their back line. Their left back also looks to have Hutton in his pocket completely which nullifies most of our attacking output

Not much in it to be honest but we aren't known for second half rallies.Not many of ours impressing to be honest.
 but apart from a powder puff challenge on the first goal,Minturn's looked ok. Thing we've improved a bit with the change and,like DV I don't see why Brewitt didn't start if he's ok to come on after 30. We've looked toothless further up with Young,Kemp and Austin complete nonentities so far. Shade and Hutton and Kokolo have had their moments but Wrexham are nowhere near outstanding but of course they haven't had to be

The annoying part are, like many of the Ďtop teamsí in this league, Wrexham arenít up to much, just highly organised which is even more frustrating. A clear game plan, and some attacking intent and thereís no reason why we canít compete here. Probably asking for too much though.

Part of that was aided by Wrexham sitting back (which they wouldnít have done at 0-0) and then going down to 10 men but part of that was still us playing well.

Not trying to be argumentative but In what way,can I ask, were we not worth a draw?

No I know mate, no worries. Honestly, apart from the Khan one on one, I canít think of any other clear cut chances for us. Wrexham, on the other hand, forced two excellent saves from Ward and went very close from a corner too. Lee also had a good one in the first half IIRC. Until maybe the last 10, I donít really recall us having a proper chance. I donít think we were abysmal, but donít think we did enough for a draw. You may well see it different, which is fair enough.

I've seen us play a lot worse than that, think we probably deserved a point with some of the chances we had.
Wasn't as bad as I was expecting, they were extremely average for the majority of the game I thought.

As we know, we're crying out for reinforcements and if we had them we could have run them down towards the end.

I must be getting old as I canít remember the Cain one, but yeah, maybe upon reflection we did have enough chances to grab a point.

Felt we were unlucky to not have got a draw. Wrexham's goal was an absolute gift and the rest of their chances were either from set prices or just punts from outside the area. We were wasteful with our chances and really should of found an equaliser.

Wrexham probably going up this season, certainly look to have done their research into league 2 and taken a page out of Steve Evens handbook with constant little fouls, time wasting and throwing themselves to the ground at every opportunity. With a budget fit for the championship, they'll probably strengthen further come January as the media blush at the "fairytale".

Atmosphere crap from their goal to the red card but much improved after, Wrexham fans made less noise than Barrow. 12k isn't a sell out

It was deflected and gave the keeper a fairly comfortable save,but he was in a good position on the edge of the 6 yard box.

Doesnít matter what type of defeat it was, itís 0 points on the board and thatís the main bit. Debating whether we were as shit as we expected to be is wasting time, although my take is we were crap until the sending off and then marginally better afterwards. Looked better with Brewitt on which youíd obviously expect when subbing on a CB to play CB instead of asking a midfielder to do it, unsure why he didnít start, not like our back 3 looked good against Tranmere.

Fair play to Shade at least for having a go and getting some excitement going, Ward seems more vocal than Mahoney but unsure if thatís just because Mahoney had given up trying to organise that defence.

Rinse and repeat until change comes in January. Whether thatís good or bad change is yet to see.

Well of course the number of points is the same ,fair comment but are you saying if we'd have been thrashed(by double figures as some predicted) you would have felt the same? I think personally a performance like that second half,(one of the best 2nd half performances for a long time) surely gives a little cause for optimism?

We were definitely worth a point and I think you could make a case we were good enough overall for all 3

I think for where we are, trying to make myself feel better by debating over whether we played as shit as I thought we would isnít going to make much difference to me, each to their own of course. If weíd have drawn or won then different story but Iím not going to take much optimism from a defeat on the basis of us looking better when the opposition went down to 10 men and sat in protecting their lead, especially when those wonít paper over the squad depth, players making the same mistakes consistently and lack of defensive ability cracks that will continue.

Although not much makes me optimistic about STFC at the minute so take whatever from that

The most notable moment of the first half, their goal aside, was when Brewitt came on and got a cheer for breaking into a sprint. The sheer lethargy and disinterest from our lot, whether it was to chase a ball down, go into a tackle with determination, or to get the back line up and out at more than a snailís pace, was staggering. Hutton and Khan were chief offenders. Absolutely ambled through the game.

Wrexham tried harder. They closed down. They committed to tackles. They won second balls. They wanted it more. They had the balls to actually talk to each other and organise a defensive structure that for 70mins was tough to break down.

The sending off put a gloss on that result as for 70mins we were so poor.

I worry that Flynn just doesnít have the stardust to get teams out of a run like this. Thereís a pattern, first at Walsall, now here. He looks and sounds broken, in a way that Scott Lindsey did after Gillingham away last year. I have some sympathy given the lack of resources he has, but this run stinks. Both there and here, he has managed underperforming squads. But, 3 year contractÖ. Thereís a commercial deal you canít blame on anyone else Morfuni.

Post by: Peter Venkman on Wednesday, December 27, 2023, 10:08:23
Just got back from our day/night stay in the joyous delights of Swindon.

1st game of the season for me in person, took my eldest son who hasnt been to a Town game in 20+ years and I cant beleive how quiet our fans were for there being nearly 11,000 of them, the TE hardly raised a song until the last 5 mins when we put the pressure on them.

My thoughts.

1st half fairly poor but more effort, 2nd not as half poor but didnt come alive until the sending off then we put more effort in but lacked quality in or around the box.

Shade ran their fullback ragged all game, Hutton barely took his man on, Ward made 2 great saves, nice to see Brewitt back with heavy strapping on his knee, he played well, Khan put loads of effort in but was woeful in front of goal and some of his passing, Kemp not great, Young the same.

Austin ran around a lot and won some headers, mostly in defence, otherwise average. Kinsella did well but is not as strong as a ball winner as we need, Wrexham out muscling him a bit and Kokolo had a fair decent game as did Minturn, other than for the goal.

McEachran runs around and looks so lightweight, his early promise under Morris is fading away. Cain looked ok when he came on but didnt contribute much.

Wrexham are a bang average side that have a couple of decent players and a lot of padding, but they are massive and strong and know how to waste time when they are leading, we never really looked like scoring despite the extra man advantage and the amount of chances we created late on.

McClean is a cunt and he knows it and revels in that but ran the show in midfield for them, if only we could afford a player on his alleged £10k+ per week.

For me it was a better performance than in recentl weeks, certainly for effort, but the quality and tackling strength just isnt there.

Massive hype around the sheepshaggers but they barely sung all game and had far less fans that I was expecting listening to their forum, pretty poor turnout by them considering.

Tourists boosted the gate no doubt.

Did we have a tactic that we were playing to? I couldnt fathom out any of sort of pattern!

The goal we conceded hurt....you shouldnt get turned like that playing Chippenham Sunday League!

Conceded then huffed and puffed.

We woke up a bit at the end and then fluffed the chances we made....hitting the bar meant it wasnt going to go in....like Gills all over again.
Worrying that we suddenly cant seem to score.

Ward deserves alot of credit, they would of been out of sight without his saves, not bad for a Keeper that has'nt played very much.

Anyway...Friday night has just got bigger....there wont be any Tourists there for sure, just alot of hardcore with huge expectations.

The team is mediocre but made to look worse by a lack of tactics or any sort of plan - and that lays with Flynn.

We need to play more like his Newport teams. I still canít get my head around on how he has gone from that to the powder puff stuff weíre seeing now.

Weíve seen it often enough this season. You donít need fancy Dans, you need some muscle and strength and stamina. Iím not a huge fan of Hutton but he chucks loads of crosses in which, to me, cry out for a big lump to get on the end of - with, maybe, a smaller player playing off him. Basic stuff, but in L2 it works. Evolve as you progress.

The goal we conceded hurt....you shouldnt get turned like that playing Chippenham Sunday League!

Conceded then huffed and puffed.

We woke up a bit at the end and then fluffed the chances we made....hitting the bar meant it wasnt going to go in....like Gills all over again.
Worrying that we suddenly cant seem to score.

Ward deserves alot of credit, they would of been out of sight without his saves, not bad for a Keeper that has'nt played very much.

Anyway...Friday night has just got bigger....there wont be any Tourists there for sure, just alot of hardcore with huge expectations.

Another one Iíll miss, this time due to a prior engagement being rearranged, cest La vie.

An established practice in sport is that when it isnít going well for you, strip it back to the basics and make yourself hard to beat.

Build confidence from there and the rest will come.

The trouble is, a lot of the roll neck wankers in management these days think that that is beneath them. ďPep wouldnít compromise his principlesĒ etc.

Itís a farce. I imagined Flynn would be pragmatic. Heís been anything but. If Brewitt was fit to play yesterday, start him. Heís one of the few players who would seemingly run through a brick wall for the team. Hardly anyone else has a defensive bone in their body.

The team is mediocre but made to look worse by a lack of tactics or any sort of plan - and that lays with Flynn.

We need to play more like his Newport teams. I still canít get my head around on how he has gone from that to the powder puff stuff weíre seeing now.

Weíve seen it often enough this season. You donít need fancy Dans, you need some muscle and strength and stamina. Iím not a huge fan of Hutton but he chucks loads of crosses in which, to me, cry out for a big lump to get on the end of - with, maybe, a smaller player playing off him. Basic stuff, but in L2 it works. Evolve as you progress.
I agree pretty much with that but there is one reason why we dont play that style and play arty farty flicky passing rather than tactics, much like Wrexham and Gillingham for instance.....

Because teams from higher divisions dont sign grafters and tacklers and players who can win headers, they only sign youngsters that can pass it around with fancy shit.

Grafters have no resale value.

We have built our entire premise upon the moneyball system and signing young players for little money or for free and selling for a profit.

Teams in higher divisions wont pay money to sign 27 or 28 year old experienced limited footballers even if as Stevenage proved last season, it can win you promotion.

Thought their keeper was decent, seem to remember him having a good game against us for Crewe last season too.

There was one moment near the end where we got in down the right, had a great opportunity to put the ball across on the floor and he sprung out into danger to claim it. Reminded me of Benda, the last keeper weíve had who would give confidence to the defence that he could come out and claim crosses to take pressure off us, especially late on in games holding onto a lead. Those sorts of players win you promotion.

That sounds feasible. But it then begs the question. If Clem really does want to sell up heíd be better off getting the club into L1. If heís still after making money from player sales heíll probably be staying.

Tbh, you can see the logic. Being in L1 with Clemís finance would be a struggle so why bother. Cheaper to run in L2.

You are preaching to the converted, I dont agree with it but I am 100% certain thats the reasoning behind it.

I would get in an entire team of experienced L1/L2 players if I were in charge, pretty much as Flitcroft did and get in a manager who can get the best out of that type of squad and style, then reassess if and when they are promoted.

That may be the logic, but itís so counter-intuitive, as those players canít thrive without the balance that the workmanlike, physical players provide. Take Minturn or Clayton. I think both have good potential, but only if they develop next to a 30 year old seasoned pro. The same would go for Cain or McEachran. Theyíd be different players if Jonathan Douglas was next to them. The strategy, if you can call it that, shows either that the intended direction is not upwards, but ďtowards oneís walletĒ (and if so, thatís flawed in itself) or it shows a complete lack of football knowledge.

Indeed, I feel he has been badly advised by certain people as to the probable wealth of riches that such an approach can bring. What they have neglected to tell Clem is that these players need to learn from far more experienced players on and off the pitch. Just having 1 (Austin) is not sufficient.

There has to be more leeway in the recruitment process than it being to recruit pretty much all youngsters when even a blind man can see we need experience to help the young players learn and progress.

The early promise and optimism of Clems  reign has long gone for me, I am struggling to justify renewing my season ticket next year..... Flynn/Hatswell have been poorly backed in the transfer market, but appear to be unable to coach a defensive unit and all the bullshit coming out of Clem and his trusted personnel.

The one positive is that most of the money we owe is now to the chairman (or maybe the people funding him), so putting the club into administration is not a good option as they potentially lose money. Obviously Power always had that card up his sleeve.

Yes under Beamish it was terrible to watch, very similar to how we are playing now quality wise. We dabbled with the bottom 8 all season and the crowds went down to sub 2k.

The whole Wrexham thing has been nothing short of an embarrassment, the clubs acted like we were playing a big Premier League team. Personally losing to an average league 2 team isnít something I see as worth celebrating.

Does it really matter if we won or lost? No one is forcing anyone to buy them.
