Title: Newport Chartists vs Swindon Town Official Matchday thread

I've allowed myself to be distracted by the McKirdy signing.  Felt I needed it. Off to Newport, if you get there in time, hit the Tiny Rebel brew pub...you'll thank me.

To be more specific, why is the match restricted to those who live "abroad" when it's not a 3.00 pm k.o. I understand that there are ways to watch it that may involve certain clever behaviour but I lack the nouse to take advantage of these.

The Saturday "3pm blackout" has been protected, meaning no matches can be televised from 14:25 to 17:25 on that day - at least until the new deal ends in 2029.

Our game goes past 14.25 in the normal 90 mins so is included in the ban as it will finish around 14.45.

I think the 3pm rule is a bit silly now. I bet if clubs negotiated more of the fee from iFollow then they'd soon drop it.

But for games that end before 3pm to not be available {in the normal way} is even more silly. To me, if a game is completed by 2.5Opm then that's a far enough grace period. Also, if a match were to overrun, surely iFollow could just ''black screen'' the feed and mute audio automatically if it passed the curfew?  :hmmm:

Where do you get 14.25 from JJ? According to this article -

"The rule prevents matches being shown on domestic television on Saturdays between 2.45pm and 5.15pm" Our game should be finished before 2.45 right?

It was from the Daily Mail so I've not shared the link to protect the innocent.

Aye, I understand that mate and the timing window. I still think it's silly in the modern era and we know eventually money will talk. Effectively, with most people who are watching via iFollow now, that blackout window is pretty much ineffective due to VPN viewers.

Which is probably why {and especially by 2029} a renegotiated approach needs to be administered for an adapted deal.

For me, it's a bit like the introduction of the smoking ban. Yes, it has done its purpose in taking it out of enclosed public spaces but people who smoke still smoke. Similarly with football in the EFL, even if they removed the iFollow blackout, I don't think it would overly impact in person attendances. Ergo {like smokers}, people who go to the football will still go to the football

I went with the BBC but others state 14.45, but, TBH even if its 14.45 our game will still go past that time with time added on for stoppages so its irrelevant really so thats probably the reason behind that still.

On paper we have 24 fit pros with only Uwakwe, Clayton and Devine injured. So in theory that's six...

My back of an envelope squad leaves out Minturn, Genesini, McEachran, Shade, Aguiar and Dworzak. That has four forwards/wingers on the bench though so maybe McEachran makes it in over one of them.

Pre match drinking till I want no more in The Godfrey Morgan.

Always a pleasure to visit Casnewydd for the annual shit hole derby, where we all gather later in Rodney Plonker Parade for some playful banter deriding the virtues of our respective towns.
Sorry, our town, their city. :girlgiggle:

So the well oiled window has swung gently closed.
Surprisingly decent & hopefully part of the building process for next season.

Liking the look of the forward options.
Looking forward to seeing Zach in action, hopefully more Ndah & less O'Brien.

Might as well go for it for what remains of the season, there is nothing to lose.

The return of McKirdy is intriguing. Recovery from op aside, 20mins from the bench here must be better than little or no game time at Hibs. It's up to him assuming mind & body are up to the task.

The prediction from reading the dregs at the bottom of the glass would be getting soaked, playing rubbish & heavy defeat.

With tin foil hat fitted the prediction would be that Mad Gav manages to conjure what Morris & Flynn struggled with, and that's an away win.

In short, no idea what will happen today.
However, 3rd Feb has been a good day for us, never having lost away in a league game.
So there, a draw it is.

Post by: Pericardinho on Saturday, February 3, 2024, 10:08:05
I would be massively surprised if he's in the squad. The same really with the other deadline day signings.

They've probably not had a single training session yet.

Perhaps 1 or 2 could make the bench as an absolute last resort if we need a goal?

I suspect It'll be the same starting 11 as against Bradford. With Elbouzedi on the bench.

Since Newport came back into the league in 2014 we have played 7 times at the Exiles stadium with Town winning 2, drawing 2 and losing 3 times. No game has ever had either side score more than 2 goals in any game and no game has had more than 3 goals in total.

Hopefully we will see some of the new "exciting signings" we made today either starting or off the bench.

Stupid fucking kick off time, pandering to the Welsh egg chasers.

Game has 1-1 written all over it for me in front of 4,954 (1,341 Swindon).

Post by: Wobbly Bob on Saturday, February 3, 2024, 11:02:36
I think that Rich on LSPOD was right in that the atmosphere for early kick offs is always a bit flat compared to 3pm.

Then again hopefully a fast start, an early goal & keeping 11 on the pitch will gain & retain the attention of the away end.

Very reliant on Khan and I guess Cain staying fit for the remainder of the season looking at that bench.

Well we have McEachran and Dworzak and picked neither in preference to a second cover CB and a fourth cover attacker. It's probably our best 18 players but it's not really what a bench is for.

Still, it's a luxury to have this as the selection worry compared to where we've been most of the season.

Its a role he played at Liverpool as did Clayton when hes fit again, definate option.
I guess he is the cover as there is nothing else.

But having witnessed how erratic he is on the ball and his positional issues I’m not convinced it’s an option that would work for any more than a couple of minutes at the end of games.

Perhaps that is because, in true Swindon stylee, he is a midfielder being played out of position in defence?

We have looked less solid at the back since FBT moved wide and Brewitt went to CB.

McCarthy has no understanding with Brewitt.

Think Cain poss went off as he is being brought back slowly. Think I would have taken Devoy off too, but brought McGurk on. Then I would have swapped RHM for Elbouzedi. Drinan would be the Austin replacement too.

I’d almost go as far as to say we were the better team (very marginally a lot of the time) for all but about 10-15 minutes of that….

I didn’t wake up in time ( daughters fucking dog kept me up all night) to see most of it but some positives from some new guys.  Team was moving faster than before so I think that is good.  If mckirdy can keep his head for a few months I think he will create and bring goals.

Other than 2 defensive lapses it was way better than under Flynn, attacking and entertaining.

Dont forget that Newport were on a 7 game league unbeaten run before today too so no pushovers.

Overall, the story is missed chances, hit the post twice and missed a sitter.  Take those chances and it's comfortable win.  Some great signings, Harry and Elbouzedi look a class above League Two.  Comms were excellent today.

Where we looked quite comfortable in midfield the changes obviously upset the balance, not sure who was playing where at times. The Brewitt/McCarthy pairing did not work, Brewitt reverting to the playing out from the back style and there were not enough midfielders to give him options. Disappointed with the result but not the overall performance, a fair amount to build on but all too late for this season.

I don't think the midfield had control in the first half, they are still so blinking lightweight, but we had some decent structure in the first half that enabled us to work around them.  In the second half it was disorganised chaos, a bit like Gav's game against Gillingham.  Fortunately Newport weren't good enough to get total control, but it turned the game into a basketball game, and we lost out because we have nothing in midfield to protect the back four and defenders who switch off all the time.

I am not sure what to think of most of the newer players.  Seems like we've brought in a lot of what we had, so we have the option to switch.  However, none of them seem to give us what we were missing from the first team, other than maybe McCarthy.

Gunning:
- Performance very good
- Stuck 70 minutes together, but were really poor for 15 mins
- Bit scruffy. Missed a couple we could have passed in in the first half
- That's football. They had a spell and we were poor at the back
- We clicked back into bad habits. We didn't play the way we had been to cut them open. We changed, we didn';t get angles. 'That was my fault as I didn't make it clear what I wanted. I'll take that on the chin. I just need to be better as a coach'
- Glatzel was quieter today, but showed excellent composure to score.

I've seen much worse from us this season.

Two very good chances missed in first half.
Some proper know how in midfield to protect & build on a lead would have seen us through.

McKirdy looked very sharp & Zach's pace will outstrip most full backs in L2.
Candidates to start the next game?
Can they be accommodated without another formation change?

Fair enough but I thought first half Cain and Devoy were far more productive going forward than their counterparts and it all changed when Cain went off and  Charsley came on for them. That's my view,right or wrong

Other than result obviously/ two disappointments.
Devoy set pieces- poor all game.
Khan - attitude stinks. Pick your toys up you’ve thrown out of the pram (transfer window has closed) and play it’s that simple.

Will be interesting to see how they find balance with the forward players. I noticed (and heard him mention in his interview) that McGurk plays as a 10 but likes to lean towards that left hand side of the pitch, if you played him at 10 and left him float left then you could play McKirdy down the left and give him license to float centrally with one of Austin/Drinan when going forward. Elboudezi looked quite handy down the right hand side as does Glatzel.

Good to have rotated options like Elboudzedi/Glatzel and Drinan/Austin and then RHM off the bench

Disappointed to lose but there were signs of a decent side.

The subs (especially the first two) didn’t really work, hopefully Gav will learn from that.
One thing is for sure FBT & McCarthy should be the two CB’s.
Subs should include someone that can fill in at LB if needed so they can play there unless injured.
We needed a CM option on the bench, so we didn’t need to rearrange the team when Cain went off.

The new players again looked decent, but difficult to judge on a small sample.

Title: Re: Newport Chartists vs Swindon Town Official Matchday thread
Post by: RobertT on Saturday, February 3, 2024, 19:40:05
In all honesty, he's not great at either role, FBT that is.  We've conceded a shit load of goals with him at the back.  As a centre back, I feel he gets dragged around too much, but Brewitt is just as much a danger because he just wants to get stuck into one on one challenges all the time.  In the couple if games I have seen him play, McCarthy has shown them both up - he knows where to be and seems content doing the basic defensive work.  FBT & Brewitt both seem to fancy themselves as a L2 Hoddle too much.

Oh it is still wide open at both ends TBH, there are few stand out teams this season, a run of 4 wins in a row and we could well be way up in contention for a play off place, not that I think we will, but it is possible.

All Gav needs to do is find that winning formula on the pitch which TBF we arent that far from finding, despite it looking utterly impossible after the Crewe game.

They all have a game in hand as well though. If we’d won yesterday we might have had an outside chance but we aren’t going to get a 8 or 9 point swing on 4 or 5 teams in a third of a season.

Other than McCarthy we’ve still got the same problem we’ve had all season, a lack of a central midfield and that’s going to stop us being anywhere near consistent enough to do anything.

No idea, someone did mention that that it might be injury related (not that he was injured when he went off), but maybe injury prevention. If that was the case and we didn't think he could last the full 90+ then we should have had McEachran, Dworzak or Aguiar on the bench.

Listening to Gav at the forum he doesnt think we need a defensive midfielder at all as we have one of the best in Khan. So as far as Gav is concerned we have enough midfielders.

Despite the fact that most of us think we need a solid DMC, I am not sure Gav is in the same boat, and hes the boss (for now).

Depending on how we want to play we potentially do have enough numbers.
If we play with 3 in midfield we have Khan/Devoy/Cain with Aguiar/McEachran/Dworzak as backup.
If we want to play a four then you can pick Elbouzedi/McGurk to play wide.

Clearly taking Cain off was an attempt to get the wide players on, but made us very weak in the central midfield

Enjoy Gav while you can. Wouldn't surprise me if Garner is appointed fr next season and it wouldn't surprise me if Garner had a hand in the recruitment.

Revisionist history with Garner.

Dull, slow football for the most part. 3 at the back bollocks. We were going no where until…
Hunt got injured and we bought in Egbo. Changed formation and looked better for it.
Absolute purplest of purple patches from McKirdy.
…and we still couldn’t see games out ffs.

If Hunt doesn’t get injured we finish 10th & Garner gets sacked anyway…

You can listen to Garner's version of events about 13 mins in. Blamed Chorley going and changes at the club.

Not sure about that - wasn’t Kessler Hayden our wing back until his recall. Egbo only came in late on.

Yes but I don’t think we went 433 till Hunt got injured & we signed Egbo to play right back.

Havent read back.

Disappointing, i thought we deserved a point.

Defending lapses, again, let us down.

I thought ours and their second was offside, i suppose it was the angles.

Plenty to be positive about. McKirdy showed we miss a player who can run and shoot.

New lad from AIK played well.

Newport were ok but not as good as the Welsh Comms made out.

No kids on the bench.

Roll on Saturday.

The same thought did cross my mind, we turned down a bid from a local side on deadline day for him too I hear. I am not sure if Charlie has a managers brain but he may do, obviously we don't know what sort of a coach or type of leader he is in the dressing room or how good a tactician he is.

RE: 2021/22 - McKirdy scored 4 goals in the last ten league games before the Play-Offs. Two in one game so seven blanks in that time.

It was Payne, Reed and Baudry who were winning the plaudits at that time. Egbo was getting plenty of love but I don't think it was changing our season.

I'm not pleading for Garner's return but let's not accuse fans of revisionism when we're saying McKirdy's form dragged us to the Play-Offs. Even if the whole season was a purple patch for the unmanageable Harry McKirdy then surely Garner can take some of the credit for that too?

Harry showed glimpses of 21/22 at Newport, hopefully we see more against Salford and beyond.

Exactly, he could turn out to be the best manager we've ever had. I hope he does because I can certainly see it happening. He'd at least be cut a little bit more slack (but probably not much) than other managers would if results went badly...all hypothetical of course...

Not read back yet and the memory a little hazy after a Sunday session, so this may/will be full of inaccuracies.

I thought for 46 minutes we were very good on Saturday and absolutely controlled the game. We got in behind their full backs again and again and only good defending/bad finishing (by Devoy and RHM in particular) kept the score goalless at half time. We started the second half in the same manner and the impressive Glatzel finished beautifully when put through 1 on 1 with their keeper. Unfortunately that was the catalyst for Newport to wake up and equalised less than 10 minutes later. Neat finish by Evans, I guess if you had to be critical Bycroft possibly at fault. Straight away Gunning through on Brewitt and moved FBT to the left and I don't think this worked very well at all and we looked really shaky. We were opened up again and Palmer-Houlden finished well.

Frustratingly we really should have gone away with at least a point, Elbouzedi was causing them all sorts of problems with his pace, one of his deliveries found sub McGurk in the box who did everything right until putting the ball wide of the post. You knew it wasn't going to be our day when HM's run and drive smacked the post.

Overall, clearly losing the game is vitally important but there were good signs, up until we scored, and then towards the end when we looked like we might fight back. Mcarthy was very impressive again, and Elbouzedi is going to cause havoc with his pace. Harry looked a little rusty but was very unlucky not to have scored. I'm not sure Drinan touched the ball in his 15 minutes. I know we give Gunning praise for making changes, but I'm not sure his totally worked on Saturday. Certainly Brewitt didn't and we looked much worse after he came on. Disappointed with Drinan also, You'd hope to use your target man a bit more. Definitely signs we can finish the season strongly, Salford at home I'm confident we'll bounce back. Mcarthy is going to love his battle with Matt Smith!

Matt Smith and also Harry Smith.

Matt Smith is said to be on £4k a week at Salford though and is earning his money this season with his 20 goals so far.

It was Payne, Reed and Baudry who were winning the plaudits at that time. Egbo was getting plenty of love but I don't think it was changing our season.

Seeing as I have the spreadsheet, last 10 TEF MoMs of that season:

Payne
Reed
Payne
McKirdy
Williams
Egbo
Baudry
Baudry
Payne
Payne

And total votes over that run:

Payne 94
Baudry 79
Williams 45
Egbo 44
Reed 41
Conroy 40
Iandolo 37
McKirdy 24 (note: he actually missed four games of the last ten, and six of the last 12. Probably suspension!)


On the actual point, is it too middle of the road to say that I think Garner is both the best manager we've had under Clem and someone I don't particularly want to revisit? Although if the deal was Garner and Chorley I'd think about it!


Title: Re: Newport Chartists vs Swindon Town Official Matchday thread
Post by: DiV on Monday, February 5, 2024, 12:10:19
Yeah that’s fair.

I don’t think Garner was that great and we still had massive issues with some things we still have massive issues with. I mean if you can’t hold onto a lead against 9 man Colchester…

I wouldn’t want him back on his own but if it was a package deal with Chorley I’d take it

Everything he said in that interview is exactly what you'd want from your Director of Football or Head of Development in a bigger club.  Precisely the role he seemed a good fit for when here.

Post by: Pericardinho on Monday, February 5, 2024, 13:01:13
Hmm..

A good interview. He comes across well but ultimately this is league 2. He comes across as somebody who's used to professional set ups, perfect pitches and 11 players who are comfortable on the ball. Which would make sense from his background coaching premier league academy teams but won't always be the case in the basement division.

Too many things need to be running perfectly for him to be successful.
