    Im reading all this positivity and actually thought we were very poor Saturday. Thought they played better football than us but the main thing is we got the 3 points. We played to our strengths and Josh looked class in very warm weather. Didn't think our full backs gave us any help going forward especially moyo. Plenty to build on though.  Roll on tomorrow 

    I wouldn't say poor. They worked hard, they had a plan that worked on this day but wouldn't work week-in, week-out. Macdonald was the only really outlet, cut the supply line to Denton and then we would have been stumped.  We were big, we were aggressive, we had tempo, that might be what you get out of a Heath team.

    Could argue 2 assists on debut is making an impact?

    You could, but looking at the context of at least one of those assists, not sure it makes him somebody I would want in the centre of my attack.  Overall, I didn't come away impressed with his contribution.  You have several much, much better players out there. For us I always thought him too light weight, certainly for the rigours of week in week out Conference National.  He hasn't had a serious run in competitive football, the next couple of months might give you that and only then will you really know if he is up to it.

  3. It was an interesting first outing for us. I thought going forward there were long periods where we were simply relentless and with some better finishing in the first half the margin of victory would have been much greater.  Denton was everything that people have described, Peni & Burrow were mobile and dangerous, Macdonald really did rip them apart and also provided some excellent balls into the box.

    Nuneaton weren't a bad side at all. However, they didn't seem as fit as we did and also there were points in the game where their heads went down, particularly the very moment they slumped to 3-1. Although we then opted to take our foot off the gas and allowed them back into the match, slightly concerned that we did that rather than finishing them off when they were there for the takingThis resulted in a battling last 15 minutes. You could argue that we needed conserve energy for Tuesday, which wasn't the outcome and it also meant that the score ended far closer than it should have done. That said, we were in total control in those closing stages.

    Looking at Shaq playing against us I am very glad that we didn't add him to our sqaud this season.  He ran, he flicked, he got sucked into fouling, he got outmuscled and he lacked the composure at his moments of opportunity. He put the effort in but I came away feeling that he probably thinks he is a much better footballer than he actually is.  Can't quite understand what the league clubs saw in him. If he gets a decent run of games he might settle and start to make an impact but I think it's just as likely that he will fade into the shadows before going out on loan a level down.

    Think the referee made a mistake for the pen and may regret that decision. Euro semi final. Hit his hand yes but how he could make that call on that stage that it was intentional is a call and a half and I think the wrong one.

    Griezmann though is top quality and he could well be the match winner on Sunday too. 

    So long as pepe is on the losing team I'll be happy. Hopefully he'll get sent off for play acting too. 

    Agree about the decision, marginal at best, reffing to the home crowd perhaps! That said, Germany losing is quite nice. Thought France were very poor up to point of getting a leg up from the ref.

    Maybe they need to set up a war zone parallel to the fan zone and let the zombies kick the **** out of each other while the rest of us can get on and watch the football. 

    Sort of like a cross between Ninian Park and the Den you mean?

    Germany & Ukraine fans are going at it in Lille right now.

    If tnis goes on several major teams are going to get kicked out. Am assuming that includes France after their local youths seem to have been involved too.

    Still think the goal at Blyth was his best but the one that gave me the most satisfaction was his third at the Shay against Chasetown.

    I was thinking the third against Chasetown is the one that sticks in my mind. Goal of the season I believe that year and of course around the time of Trevor Storton's death which added a strong emotional element.

  8. Say what you like about Flea, differece is that he supports the club.

    I don't think we aren't good enough because as a team we are just things aren't clicking

    Not sure it is right for you to use the word 'think'.
  9. But why do they post in such quick succession?
    Are they bothers?

    No point all falling about it were all town fans and want what's best for the club but this downward spiral is ongoing and either the board give Aspin some serious funds or get rid, lose to Barrow and I dread to think what this forum will be like

    I dont believe we are all Town fans lad. Some of this tripe is just too idiotic to be true and has been for some time.

  10. Sadly it looks like we are just about to reach the end of Aspin at the Shay. What a man, what a manager. Nowhere to go now though. Whoever comes next will find him a hard act to follow. No doubt the low grade tat on here typified bt SameOldAshy, LCS etc will be at the throat of our new manager within days. Wish we could change fans at the same time we refresh our managerial position. Knowing so many nobs follow us puts me off going these days. There's a matchday experience problem for you Pliny, Bubba et al

  11. Probably my biggest bug bear with this forum. We have about 6 threads for each game, about 50 signings threads this summer and about 1000 Jamie Vardy threads.


    Mods: Any chance we can just have a pinned "transfer rumours" and "confirmed signings" please?

    To be fair Vardy is worthy of at least 1000 threads!  (unlike Rumours, which includes the Fleetwood Mac album also)

  12. What a bunch of jokers you are.Resorting to name calling because I praise a footballer.Absolute priceless..

    Praising a player we don't have and will never have, whilst knocking a player who we did have.   Priceless, thats what I call support, keep it going Aspin/Ashy whatever you call yourself.
