  1. The date is the closest guaranteed Saturday (excepting New Year's Day) when Town are at home. A lot of hard work is going on to make this a success and I can confirm, up to press, the following are attending; John Kilner, Geoff Hutt, Dave Evans, Dave Harris, Paul Hendrie, John Smith, Andy Stafford, Malcolm Goodman, Mickey Bullock, as well as family members of those players sadly no longer with us.

  2. No longer with us. Apparently put a curse on Malcolm Allison after being upset during Allison's Crystal Palace days. I came across this regarding Mick Kennedy, as told by Chris Dunleavy: "He went over to him [Kennedy] and said, 'Look into my eyes. I want you to go rigid like a bar of steel.' We could see Mick stiffening his back as he was talking to him and his knuckles were clenched. Then Romark got two chairs and with the help of one of the lads he put Mick's heels on one chair and his shoulders on the other so that he was suspended horizontally between the two chairs. Then he got one of the

  3. I must be by myself in thinking we played some tidy stuff. At no point did we lose patience in what we were doing. It didn't happen tonight. We know Cameron King can't do big minutes 3 days apart. We know Jamie Allen is still building himself back up. We know Tobi has played a lot of minutes. We have a squad for a reason. Do we just keep playing them till. King pulls a hammy as is out for 6 weeks. Or Allen does. I think personally Pete has earnt our trust enough for us to believe in what he is doing. We even sent Tobi on for a defensive mid.

  6. Why oh why do fans need a boo boy? Southwell Had a serious injury that required surgery and it was his first start since. He did ok against a pair of centre backs that shackled him superbly. Cut the guy some slack ffs.

  7. Had a few good runs forward second half with no one making themselves available for a pass, strictly right footed forget a left foot cross pass or shot. Hundred percent honest team player.

  8. When a side refuses to cross the halfway line take it as a huge compliment. Also have some grace and accept they did a fantastic defensive job. We played neat football and ignored the fools’ cries to lump it forward. Other teams will try to copy them but they won’t all succeed.

  9. Not sure why your having this much of a meltdown after a draw. Yes we should win games like that but we didn't. They set up in a way that made it so tough to break down. King can't play big minutes 3 days apart. Allen has just come back from an injury (Brown has reinjured himself probably trying to get back too quick) would you have liked the same to have happened to Allen? Tobi has played big minutes but in terms of what your suggesting i.e scoring a goal. Tobi really isnt prolific at that. So you will say well start them then take them off. So say we did that. Got to

  10. Its dissapointing. However it happens. At this moment we have 3 clean sheets on the bounce and Clarke and Staunton have improved as a pairing. We can cope. We just have to do what we have all season in the most part. Outscore the opposition. Starting with Saturday. Don't forget Maher can also play there if required. Maybe we can stick Brown a chair behind the goal so he can still bark out orders.

  11. My man of match at Maidenhead.Defence not the issue 3 clean sheets Browny/Maher to come back.. Problem is in attack-sooner we ship out Williams/Southwell and upgrade the better and this could be key to how far we can go this season..

  13. No. Zero tempo in first half when play was fairly even with best players on bench. We upped the ante in second with no space to move in with top players on as they defended in their final 3rd. If we had scored early on would have been a different outcome. Not one of those unlucky nights, wrong team selection by PW. But a chance to get back on it on Sat v Borehamwood

  14. But again, how do you do that when there is no space in the final third and a back line of 8 that are camped within their own box. Chorley had zero attacking intent and had one shot on goal in the 15th minute. Nathan Clarke and Sam Johnson could have stayed at home and watched Bake Off with my missus but everyone else had a go, tried overloads, tried running with the ball and the space just wasn't there. I've never in my life seen a team defend so deep and in such numbers

  17. Sorry but PW got it wrong we new what Chorley was all about and to beat a team that parks the bus you have to hit them in the first half we didn´t. If you want to rest CK-JA- Tobi they should have started and changed at HT if knackered you cannot sit them on the bench for 70 minutes then expect them to come on fresh and run their socks off, the pre warm up before a game is for a reason it lasts 10-15 mins then go into the game ready, to sit on the bench for 70 then run up and down the touch line a couple of times does not prepare them properly and in my opinion could create more injury.

  19. Who got a team sheet before the game and didn't think WTF?. The abysmal first half was of no surprise . King, Sho and Allen on the bench, Wild is making the same mistakes he has already made. Over confidence perhaps. Still top but it will not be for much longer unless he starts with his first eleven. Could have been a bumper crowd Saturday with a Victory tonight. Not many will pay £20 twice in a week after seeing that. They have been beaten 6-1, 5-1 and 3-1.

  20. That is exactly what we hope will happen as supporters. This team is still in the infancy stage, as in improving. I think most fans think Pete Wild has a little bit of magic in his approach. I believe that as the season progresses, out team will improve, not hit a wall. We are on top of the league on merit, one or two blips don't make me feel that we cannot get better as the team gels. There will be changes in certain players coming & going as the Manager decides how he wants to change things. It happens every season, it is up to the current squad to prove their worth.

  21. I think we all knew what Chorley would do, and tempo was lacking from the word go. I thought we often wanted one or even two touches too many around the box when we needed to be playing the ball into feet and in front of runners first time, and this slowed down progress into danger areas I was also dismayed by the refusal to shoot from twenty yards when, on a greasy surface, the diminutive keeper was likely to spill anything he got his hands on. The service to Southwell was pretty poor all night and harsh to judge him on his first start of the season. With twenty-five minutes gone, I was will

  24. Spot on. The passing across the defence and balls played between them and the midfield etc were obviously a deliberate tactic. Nolan and Cooper didn't take any risks for the first half hour. I think the problem came when they didn't tire to the extent PW obviously hoped they would. There was definitely more space in the second half though as the room the fullbacks found showed. If anything I think King and others have a tendency to overdo it when in possession in and around the box. A more direct approach, crossing at the first opportunity, may have helped last night. A relatively new team

  28. We could have run them ragged in the first half then subs coming on could have a better chance as it was we did not and they kept going all the game also less chance of injury to Allen & King as they had done pre warm up not just a couple of runs up & down the touch line.....Still think he is a breath of fresh air but still makes mistakes.

  30. Most of our attacking players were doubled up on at least when they had the ball. We did try and dribble but Lional Messi would have struggled to dribble past 6 players all the time. Can we not just accept we came up against a ridiculously defensive team that we just didn't have the luck to break through? How do Yeovil have the title sewn up when they are 2 points behind us? I do believe they are the team to beat but why can't we beat them?

  31. Steve is right because look what happened Saturday when we scored in the 2nd min which lifted the side, the first half was like a pre season game with no excitement or atmosphere, why do we always turn in a nothing performance in front of a big crowd when we should be attracting new fans so another chance Saturday for NLD.

  32. I'm not the manager but that is my thinking, if they last 50mins with a goal then take them off. Last night first half JBW looked as if he was ordered to pass back on every overlap, second half he appeared to have been instructed to go at them & he was eveywhere. Disappointing result but there were some very good individual displays , unfortunately not good enough to break Chorley's defence. Similar scenario to Harrogate first half, no midfield invention. Seems churlish to criticise as we are getting there, onwards & upwards.....oh we are top.

  33. Wild knew that Chorley would play that formation.Yet he left our main playmaker on the bench & our fastest winger on the bench. Chorley came to frustrate & we had no idea how to break them down. Special mention for Michael Duckworth who was outstanding last night.

  35. Agree Binnom-Williams had an excellent second half and could have scored after showing great control but his weak shot was straight at the keeper. The team play the type of football that is far superior to anything we have seen at the shay for many years. My concern is that at home we have failed to score in 3 of the last 4 matches. No doubt this is a problem Pete Wild is trying to correct and let’s hope the answers is found quickly

  36. Josh Mac scored again last night. Scored 2 in 3 now for Whitley Bay. Will be good to see him fully fit and back in the team. We only have Allen who will try take a defender on at the moment and get into the box. Having Josh Mac back that will actually run at defenders and can deliver a good ball will be a big help. I would like to see them on both wings.

  37. Well this wasn't the first of these sorts of games and it won't be the last. It's frustrating, but they didn't turn up with any expectation of beating us. 5 men in defence and every man behind the ball, and Chorley are not in this league through luck, they have a very tight squad with some players who have been playing together for 3+ seasons. Still, it was a bad move from Pete Wild to not play our strongest attacking team from the off in my view and we should be looking to do better the next time a team comes and we expect them to set up that way. We'll have to take it on the chin t

  38. Agree with Hopper, thought Binnom was excellent, he’s got better as the season has progressed, and Duckworth was excellent as he often is We passed it around really well without having that cutting edge in the final third Chorley were good at what they did which was been organised at defending and getting eleven behind the ball most of the game, unfortunately for them draw after draw will see them relegated I can see why PW started with Southwell to give him some game time and I guess he thought it would be enough to beat Chorley, but back fired really. PW will be keen to k

  40. I thought Binnom-Williams put in his best performance. Probably speaks volumes about the team's overall play that he had to assume such a big role in them going forward as the game progressed but he showed some great touches and was a real threat. Very cool and composed at times in defence as well. Just needs to get his tracking back at speed sorted. Get him fully fit and he's a hell of a find I reckon. Him and Duckworth the best players for Town. As for the overall performance, it was a frustrating game to watch that was born of them being overly cautious at times. Not enough movement a

  44. Anyone would think we have just taken a good seeing to by Chorley with this reaction. R.E Cameron King - We all know he cant play sat, tues, sat - Today due to them having so many players behind the ball his creativity would be reduced, why waste his fitness tonight when he will be far more useful against Boreham wood. He came on, gave the ball away a couple of times, laid off a few simple balls and did nothing of note. R.E Tobi - Again played many minuets over the season so far. Holding up the ball and trying to thread a cheeky ball through when there are 7 defenders lined up behind

  45. Think comments based of danny Williams are justified. What has he done in any game hes played? Genuine question. Because for me he hasnt done much , games pass him by, cant remember him running at a defender and taking him on. Im sure josh mac could be doing more than him even with the lack of match practice. Also for me southwell isnt and wont be a goalscorer in this team

  47. I agree with all of the above really. Nolan had one of his better games but there wasn't the need for him and Cooper in midfield. We had 70% possession tonight but barely troubled their keeper. I thought Duckworth was outstanding at right back. The biggest cheer of the night was his FIFA20 turn with the ball. Another frustrating Tuesday night home game.
