Just got back. One of them days. When your best two players have poor games you're going to struggle. Williams and Gladwin just not on it today. Baudry decent,Hutton was just starting to look dangerous then gave the ball away for their second just as we looked to be getting it together. Khan an easy choice for MOM for me

Was Evans there? I didn't see him in their tech area and he's hard to miss!

Evans looks to have shed a few tonnes so is looking quite svelte (by his standards) these days.
Almost unrecognisable.

The fat bastard was stuck in their dug out for most of the game and appeared every now and again to berate the 4th official. The fat mess.

Itís interesting in these how those of us viewing from, ahem Ďoverseasí seem to see things differently from those in the stands.

Nicked this from the MoM thread to respond here after listening to the LSPod ep with Terry who was at the game. Definitely something in this - maybe all of us on here talking to each other during the game influence eachother, but there does seem to be a distinctly more negative view from those who were there as opposed to those who were watching from mainland Europe. I thought the first 40 minutes or so were abject but it improved from there, but feels like that turnaround wasn't really felt at the game.

Works the other way too I would suggest.

Think youíre going to scrutinise and be more negative about a performance you paid money and travelled (how ever many miles) to watch.

Like, Iíd definitely get more annoyed at a result / performance if Iíd dedicated most of (if not all depending on location) of my Saturday to it, as opposed to sitting in my house with my feet up with a cup of tea and a pack of biscuits - knowing full well once the final whistle is blown I can completely shut it off and move on (rather than having to get out the stadium, walk through the crowd to find the car/get to the train station and end up travelling back with others who were at the game)

Isn't that the same thing?! You are both right.

Can also say I sometimes withhold negative comments in the matchday thread as I acknowledge I'm more pessimist than optimist and that pisses some people off.
-------------------------
From my "European viewing" we were well beaten - held very much at arms length and failed to create anything. I remember thinking if I was Jephcott I'd be looking for another club because in this system it is pointless him being there.

But as DV said, you walk away, get a cuppa, reflect that Stevenage are good at what they do and move on to Strictly with the Mrs because the bloody boxing got cancelled.

Can guarantee I'd be far more pissed off at actually taking a road trip and seeing no shots on target.

Thing is, I'm still not sure where we are. 1 point from the top 3 but generally a good run since the (arguably fortunate) win v Sutton. I don't know whether to be grumpy or otimistic!

Oh dear, it was hard listening on Saturday and even harder this morning watching it.

That was a Luke Williams game, all the ball and play and lose.

Don't disagree with that. Can't help thinking if you swapped Jephcott from this season with Davison from the second part of last season you'd probably improve both teams.

Ha, yeah, possibly!

I am not sure what the answer is. Try 2 up top or try pushing the other 2 attacking players higher?
But that changes the way we play.

I didnít see the game, but listened to the LS pod.
I think the biggest concern for me is the fact we donít often create many chances / make the opposition keeper work hard, and they made a good point on the pod about the lack of options up front.
We have nobody who can do what Davison or Simpson did last season, and with Adeloye and Hepburn-Murphy injured and Parsons out on loan, only midfielders or wide players on the bench.
We will need to strengthen that area in January.

Adeloye is well on the way back isn't he?

not seen anything from him to get excited yet, but hope springs eternal.

jephcott is very isolated up top on his own, and Wakeling looks less effective in his deeper role to my eyes.

But it seems that a change in formation change is unlikely. And to be fair it did work against lesser teams.

it's a dilemma isn't it
