Aspin getting the sack?

135 posts in this topic

Chris Smith was our weak link as was the psychology of Aspin in believing we had lost before we'd kicked a ball . Always felt that Hereford and Cambridge were seen as sacrificial games that the higher powers felt we had to lose for the long term good of the club

He was a weak link but Danny Lowe was a good Conference North player who managed a few seasons in non league's top flight. His clearance for their goal was woeful and set it up on a plate. I suppose he was a better left back than a centre half and Macca was a better left back than Lowe. As I said before though, if we'd brought in a decent left sided centre half a few minutes the earlier things could have been different. Singer should have definitely played.

Ainge was returning from injury, Lowe went on to have a sh1t second career as captain of some third rate Leeds team and is still going strong at some unknown West Bradford club

People seem to forget that the back four of Bolton, Roberts, Smith and Lowe/Macca (depending on if Crowther was playing) had gone very close to setting a Conference record for most minutes without conceding. That included games away to Barnet and Grimsby and all of which was without Simon Ainge. We finally got found out playing Pearson behind the Gregory  

We just couldn’t deal with Sam-Yorke that season, believe he got 6 goals all season. 2 on the opening day against us and 2 in the semi final second leg, as well as causing havoc away at Lincoln when Tomlinson got a hattrick against us. He didn’t play at all in the first game at the Shay.

Port Vale signed a few new players today so Aspin going obviously hasn’t made a difference in them signing players on.

Directors did not want him to spend as they did not trust his judgement.

Watching the game at Leicester was like watching two sets of players that desperately wanted to win the game and two managers that were trying every trick possible to lose the game

Not to mention 3 officials that were doing their best to forget the rules of the game as often as they could.
