He did and we hit the post twice more after too wasnt it? IIRC and the defender who nearly kneed the ball in at the near post and then the Lavinier shot fumble saved on the line by the keeper.

It could easily have been 8+ goals.

Another two times with the ball coming back out.

Lavinier and Darcyís goals were both post and in.

Indeed, for a comparison to previous games we had 23 shots and 11 were on target on Saturday.

That was as many shots on target as we had in the previous 3 games combined.

Yeah Austin hit the bar in the 2nd half when it was still 1 - 0 and Hutton or RHM after a sexy little through ball from Williams.

We were absolutely class.

Just watching the extended highlights - I forgot that Khan hit the inside of the post early on. Really good effort

I thought it was Hepburn-Murphy.

Watched the game live. The short highlights. The extended highlights. And now the pitch side highlights!

Best performance in years.

- Gunning says he's always relaxed. Need to watch the shape and formation. Its like a chess match. Can we transition quickly before they get into shape.

This pretty much nails the difference between Gunning's approach and Lindsey's. SL's approach was far too slow and ponderous making the defensive job way too easy for opponents. Saturday was perfect, move the ball with pace and have numbers flooding forward. (yes the Austin factor played a part of course) It is such a shame it's taken so long to do it, but we now have 20 games to get out of league 2.

Didn't want to start a new thread for Saturday yet but I see we have sold just under 950 tickets already for Saturdays game at Walsall, another great turn out should easily break 1,000 by then and if a new man is in place maybe 1,500.

It's not all doom and gloom of course. This was a cracking win...great to see Charlie Austin back AND to score AND to win so emphatically...probably how the Town should be beating sides like this if aspirations are to depart this wretched division...in an upward direction.

Clean sheet was a very welcome addition too!

Reading through this thread a few pages at a time since the result is pretty entertaining... just saying if you are a trying to  make the same arguments about a player in posts: A) before the game whilst arguing about a rumoured starting line up; as B) A defeat a few weeks ago; as C) a draw a few weeks ago; and as D) after a 5-0 win.... then you are coming across a bit one sided.

Can't remember the exact timings, I was working until at least half time I think. But first chance checking result, I think we are 1-0 up and Charlie Austin had scored in his 25 mins... Just like the first proper buzz over football I've felt for ages. Austin is well after when I used to go loads, so not just some first big nostalgia player or anything. Just it would  be so easy to be a bit cynical over the whole thing, and no manager etc... It's just nice to be wrong.

Manager fucked off to crawly. Saves us a fortune paying off a long contract at some point when we sack him too late. Charlie Austin comes back, scores early to avoid that is he past it if he hadn't scored for a few games, we've won five fucking nil. at home. 11000 (I heard) so extras which will come back, fair play 800(?) Grimsby fans making the trip - how many do Grimsby take could be a teset of how big a club you are. And Five different players have scored when sometimes it doesn't look like we can create chances,,,,

So much more than I could have hoped for... and I think time to give the squad a chance to maybe show there potential.

Or find a reason at how we'd been better if Iandolo had blah blah blah....

Damn good turn out for one of our closest games (never thought a game essentially in Brum would be classed as local!).

I can't help but think it would have been much more if a new manager had been appointed prior to the game tomorrow, giving the fans a bit of a boost.

Speaking about distances, rough distances to our closest opponents doesnt make good reading with only 6 clubs being under 100 miles away. Newport 60 miles, Northampton 71 miles, Wimbledon 86, miles, Sutton 87 miles, Walsall 89 miles, Orient 92 miles.

Also a bit Walsall'd. Feels like we play them every few weeks Smiley
