Re: Harrogate Home

Gordon should be ahead of Wood in the pecking order for sure, but I thought Wood played okay today, had a few shaky moments but wasn’t woeful. Once we addressed the overload on our left hand side in the second half by taking Luque off and putting McQueen there, we seemed relatively comfortable. He’s...

Re: Are the owners aware ?

We were getting overrun in the midfield tonight so I see why the changes were made, but I do worry what being brought off after half hour will do for both Luque and Dobson’s confidence long-term (both of who have shown glimpses of quality). Could have changed the system for the remaining 15 minutes ...

Re: Woking Home

Largely agree with Lee. Despite having a supposedly superior squad to last season Taylor is still setting us up to nullify the opposition rather than play to our strengths. I’m hoping yesterday’s performance was just a case of new players not gelling rather than a sign of things to come. Criticising...

Re: Barrow

Yesterday was dreadful. We sat off Barrow, who although are a decent footballing side, are only 8 points above us. That comes from the management ultimately. Like Gillingham fans warned us, watching a team under Taylor has proven to be tedious and boring on so many occasions this season. The worryin...

Re: Chesterfield

The trouble with Taylor is, it seems as if he tries to cater for the strengths of other teams with his team selection every game. Sometimes, we just need to be positive. I don’t think there’s ever a need for Wright, Loft and Robinson in the same team. I get that we aren’t blessed with a plethora of ...

Re: Maidenhead

Clearly, McQueen was poor last night. But in fairness, Maidenhead doubled up on him most times he received the ball and he didn’t have enough options to offload it. He’s inconsistent, but in my opinion, he’s had a decent season for us. Some posts on here about him are way too reactive after one poor...

Re: Your line-up v Sutton?

Barring the first 20 minutes or so, one of the best performances of the season. Limited Sutton to minimal chances, and played some lovely football at times. Regarding Adeloye, yes he is not the best finisher, but now we have Wilkinson, the onus is not on him as much to be our main goalscorer. He’s c...

Re: Taylor in Taylor Out

All this is pointless as they signed two year contracts when they came on board as far as I am aware. We are where we are despite starting with pretty close to nothing last summer. Taylor has attracted a number of players because of his name and contacts, and the new owners appear to like him. Yes ...

Re: Taylor in Taylor Out

I’d say it would be a mistake if we have offered Taylor and Harris new deals before securing safety. That’s not because I necessarily want them to leave, but I just don’t think it makes sense to keep a management team on that could oversee us getting relegated. In terms of the job done by Taylor and...

Re: John Still

i think my message to everyone re john still- is " dont look back in anger. " We need to look at it like this. - without JS and the league 1 days - the cup runs and the league two and a higher profile- when the USA guys came in we had a heritage to show them . to say we took 30,000 to wembley to sa...

Re: Who`s eating their words now ?

At the time, I don’t think it was outrageous to suggest that Taylor was failing at his job and we looked doomed. Despite the budget, his recruitment still failed in many areas at the start of the season (Davey, Wright, Reynolds, Mullings, Donovan etc.) However, ever since that Harrogate game and the...

Re: Wilkinson

It’s either us or Gillingham for the rest of the season for Wilkinson, as I’m sure there’s FIFA rules that state you can’t play for more than two teams in one season. That should in theory put us in a better position to get him on loan until the end of the season. At the start, I’d say Mullings got ...

Re: Halifax

Ref was absolutely useless. But when you’re playing against a berk like Kosylo, you have to factor in the fact that he’s a cheating c**t who will dive at every opportunity. Nunn should have known better- Robinson also looked close to getting 2 yellows too. I’m surprised no one has really mentioned ...
