  1. Came here when the club was on its arse. Didn't have a penny to spend. Brought in rejects from other clubs who had been told they weren't good enough. Managed to build a team which in the first 3 years challenged for the playoffs on 2 occasions, before taking us to the final in his 4th year and 10 minutes away from the league. Again, without spending a penny on players. Just bringing in cast offs. Yes things went downhill over the next two years (and he spent money on Stamp and Mansaram) but the state of the club off the field deteriorated as well. The 10 point deduction didn't help either in that last season. All managers receive criticism about the odd team selection or formation from fans who, let's face it, are impatient and often know far less about football or the players than the people they are criticising. But overall, he did a fantastic job.
  2. Gardner away at Luton is probably up there for me. Or Gregory's at Guiseley in the play offs.
  3. MFT meltdown yesterday was a joy to behold. Had his kick against the advertising boards gone into the stands instead, it would have been a second yellow in the space of a few minutes. Matty Brown struggled against him before the meltdown but afterwards he was ineffective.
  4. I would if I was, but I'm not so I can't. People have called for TSS to be dropped and I agree he had to be dropped. Not denying that. But if TSS had been dropped for Southwell or McAlinden, rather than Redshaw, would that have won us the game? The reality is...it was the inclusion of Redshaw rather than the omission of TSS which won us the game.
  5. He played well but he wasn't the difference. He didn't do anything which Chesterfield struggled with other than hassle them, and that's not what won us the game. Any combination of Allen, McAlinden, Southwell or TSS would not have won us the game. We won the game because Redshaw popped up all over the pitch (dropped deep, went wide, played on the last man) and we got the ball to him. It's as simple as that. The fact TSS wasn't playing was irrelevant.
  6. I've not seen anything in TSS to suggest he's good enough to be a starter for a team with football league ambitions. Squad player perhaps. But taking him out of the team was not the reason we won today. The reason we won was simply because we had Redshaw and Chesterfield did not have a clue how to handle him. They papped themselves everytime he got the ball. If TSS had started instead of Allen, there was nothing to suggest that today would have gone any different because we'd still have had Redshaw.
  7. I'd say we won today because of who was starting rather than who wasn't. We won today because Redshaw was superb. But take him out and put any of our strikers there instead; it would have been very different.
  8. I would say you're overthinking it. At the start of the season all teams have the element of surprise. But after a month or so when other teams do their homework on us, we either: A. need to be good enough to carry on winning without changing how we play B. need to be good enough to change our own game according to our opposition The better teams and managers/coaches will do both effectively; the very best mainly A. The teams in a false position (us) get found out on both counts because they don't have the quality required in their players or the coaches/manager.
  9. To be fair internal reasons could mean hundreds of things.
  10. In. Massive week ahead though.
