    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.

    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. Pete deserves our trust. Even if from the outside we don't always understand something. He has earnt our trust

Three-course meal, Q&A session with the players, match v Maidenhead, chance to see re-screening of the FA Cup win, reminisce with the players. Great day all-round, I'd say, and all for just £35-40 (included admission fee for match).

    I don't think anybody could have done much up front last night and it is unfair to judge him on that game.

    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.

    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 65 mins and the score was 0-0 Wild would then have got a rocket from the South stand if he had removed King or Allen or Tobi at 0-0 so he really can't win. Will you just trust what the manager is trying to do. He has earnt the right to be trusted. We have won 10 out of 16 games. I'll be down there Saturday and i'm sure now they have played just 30 minutes. All of your players will start the game.

    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.

    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..

    Well at least he did it behind him and not in front of him. Bad manners to drop one in front of one your team mates. Pfarp.

    Played with a quicker more intense tempo, and more off the ball movement would have helped.

    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. A impact sub is a specialist player who can react quickly without the warm up, we simply do not have one. Still believe it´s another left sided attacking MF player we need to create the chances with McAlinden in front of him. Anyway that´s past onwards and upwards this is our best chance for years to get out of this league please do not blow it. We are one of the best in this league. All in all that was a poor result last night - last season it would have been a plus not this.

    For all of D-Buz’s hesitations towards our history, what’s being put on there is well-priced and important and I hope plenty of our silver-haired fans will be booking straightaway.

    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 and manager trying to work out what works best. I'd like to think Wild and the players will get better not worse as the season progresses.

    How about flipping it to say maybe he didn’t want to burn players out (not aimed at you ash), so brought the 3 aforementioned on in the 65th minute when they should have been tired from our “back ups” running Chorley ragged. Sometimes teams just defend with everyone behind the ball with no attacking content (see us last season). I believe we have someone who can unlock these kind of defences in Cameron King, but I’m not sure we have someone who can read that pass to get on the end of it. Maclinden is a good player, but most of his goals are created somewhat by himself

    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?

    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.

    Not a bad player, but feel he’s at the bottom of our list of wide players. Feel same about Nolan, not a bad footballer but have him at bottom of our depth chart. Injuries have played a part of course, but with squad almost healthy would expect them two to fall to bench.

    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.

    Says alot that the Chorley manager felt it was their best result/performance of the season.... One goal last night and we would have one that by 4.

    Chorley are on a great defensive run, thibk that may be 4 clean sheets in a row? We tried hard to break them down but was absolutely no space as they were sat that deep. Tried getting the fullbacks into the box along with Josh Staunton to create overloads but it wasn't to be. Credit to a well drilled and organised Chorley team, dull as dishwater, but it's not their job to entertain. The No.6 for Chorley was superb all evening by the way. Only complaint from me was that Liam Nolan coukd have been taken off 15/20 minutes earlier than he was. Defending is as much as a skill as attacking and Chorley were very adept at that side of the game last night. Onto Saturday and let's hope for a more open game and 3 points.

    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

    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.

    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 though. Onto the next game, 3 points v Borehamwood and then that would be a fine return from a week of matches against Maidenhead, Chorley and BW, even if we dropped points against the supposedly weakest team. The reactions from the footy accumulator people on twitter are priceless though. Poor sods, imagine seeing Halifax Town going top and thinking you can trust them!

    We didn't get behind them enough out wide, we didn't get enough players into their box . So many times we were looking for the final killer pass and nobody was available . We didn't have enough variation of pace and we lacked invention .

    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 keep players fresh and some rested, you could tell however it was getting desperate towards the end as we had about four forwards on....

    Can understand a little in what he is saying in the article, but to execute what he wanted the pace in which we moved the ball was way too laboured and slow to have any effect.

    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 and not quick enough. Having said that, they got a point and stayed top. The glass is most certainly still half full. And it was Brian Laws sat in front of us, no doubt scouting for someone. I suspect Wild was aware of this from my earlier post and took the sensible decision to stick McAlinden out wide as a result where he wouldn't stand out. Liam himself almost certainly placed that screamer high and wide in the second half for the same reason.......

    It's horses for courses. Barrow's system may suit Quigley. I have a theory which I'm happy to leave open to debate that every striker, no matter what level has atleast 1 purple patch of a season. Even if they're $h**e for the next 8 years.

    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 you? innefective, rest him for Boreham wood. Came on and we improved (Slightly) Allen - Coming back from injury 70% Possession he wouldnt have been able to maintain that kind of intensity coming back from injury. Its all in hindsight, won and it would have been a masterstroke, draw as it is and somehow starting King, sho and Allen we would have sunk 5 past them. Also saying they have conceded x amount etc. They started the season as all clubs, playing normal football, they soon realised they cannot play this way due to losing 5-1 4-1 3-1 etc they then changed the way they play, look at how many they have conceded in the last 4/5 games. If we would have won Wild would have been a football management genius, instead he's now mentioned in the same breath as Fullarton. What a fickle lot.

    The main positive to take from tonight are the amount of people fuming on our Twitter comments saying our game must have been rigged, and generally swearing blue murder at us because we ruined their accumulators. If you fancy a pick me up, go take a look. It’s gold.

    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.

    We all know the team selection wasn't what we wanted. I feel theres a bit ott going on though. Were we really that bad at what we were doing or were they just good at what they were doing? That was a one off game against a team who didn't want to win the game. Boreham will not play like that.

    Well they don't let you play no but every team we have played this season has tried to win the game. Giving us the room to create. If you come up against a team that has no interest of winning a game you will struggle no matter who you are.

    Not really bothered about Radio Leeds TBH, apart from the guy on in the mornings 6 till 9 the rest would be out of their depth in hospital radio. When a really big game comes along we should tell them to bugger off. When the international break is on you can listen to commentary of Bradford City on all their frequencies. Alternatively, you may wish to go and cut your toe-nails.
