    You guys are unreal. 
    Maher is in his best position , defensive midfield protecting the back line and dropping back when needed.

    Clarke has shored up a leaky defence, who were struggling due to having no defensive midfield protecting them.

    Start supporting the side, every player who pulls on a Town shirt and start being more positive. You were the same during the match, posting negativity and then ooooo we scored.

    This side have a good blend, experience, talent, energy and a workmanlike drive to succeed. They win, win ugly and frustrate the opposition. They can dominate and look amazing, but they can also break down and contain. Each has its moments in matches and it’s what defines the better more successful sides. 
    Also having a great blend of experience, raw talent, competitive ball winning skill and at time pace to make us difficult to beat.

    Shaymen (every one of them) till I die.

    Your entitled to your opinion. However I think Maher is far better as a central defender than a defensive midfielder he has been superb in that position this season.

    If an experienced player isn't doing his job he should be retired . Good to have him back on form but still a slight worry about the balance of the team with Clarke and Maher both in it . Also a worry that we aren't always going to get away with spending 75% of games defending

    Spot on. Get Maher back at centre back.

    Sean Williams, who looks to have had a heavy lockdown along with James Hardy looked good tidy footballers but pretty lightweight compared to ours. Neither would get in our team 

    James Hardy would get in our team. Very decent footballer.

    Clarke was constantly the only halifax player you could hear on the coverage, squeeze up was a regular shout, not what you normally hear from a defence sitting deep. Sadly some will not give Clarkey any credit. "Only played well because Alty played into his hands" don't make me laugh, the guy still has plenty to offer.

    Big decisions for the manager now with Summerfield and Woods back. Loads of options all over the pitch for the first time this season.

    Nothing but credit for Clarke today. You see what you want to see.

    Ridiculous assessment Clarke,s distribution was far superior to Bradbury and Byrne Clarke was the one telling them to not play deep Fluidity comes from the midfield not from a centre back

    If you say so. If Clarke was telling them not to play deep. Clearly they were not listening. Intensity comes from how quick you distribute the ball from the back. 

    Anyway we won so happy days.

    Nathan Clarke 10 ot of 10 today. Leadership, quality and desire to win!!!! He has his critics on this forum, but he has produced today 

    Double edged sword. Played well today did Clarke,however the fluidity & intensity has gone out of the team. 

    We are not the same attacking threat. 

    Braised for the know it alls to have a pop.

    Agree, and it's cost us points. Whether it's Clarke to blame or Wild changing tactics because Clarke is back I don't know. 

    The defence was fine. No need to bring Clarke back in. Maher was playing out of his skin at centre back. Not near enough as effective in midfeld.

    Get Maher back in defence and drop Clarke.  Sorry since he’s come back we look awful at the back 

    You will get slated for that comment. Clarke fan club will be after you.

    He’s had unlimited money unlike Wild. He’s had pick of players from his old club. Been allowed to sign players from higher up whilst Furloughing the deadwood. Can’t compare in my eyes 

    Hardly call bringing in players from Gloucester & Weymouth having a unlimited budget.

    Not for the first time this season that a supposedly top side have been underwhelming.

    Like I said. Never have a better chance for promotion. Summerfield to come back as well, keep Hyde fit. It's looking very promising.

    I don't think anyone will say that , we need to score first today so we have more chance if he starts , if he breaks down after 25 minutes so be it , we might be winning , he could come on when we are chasing the game and breakdown then you have wasted a sub.

    Cannot afford to be chasing the game against this lot. Play your best players if they are fit.

    Put yourself in Jacks shoes, a club higher up the footballing pyramid with the potential to offer a more lucrative contract and also possibly a longer one. What would you do? 

    Don't think he is good enough to play at a higher level at the minute. Needs to find more consistency. Think Jeff King is more ready to play higher up the pyramid.

    And if he starts and breaks down after 25 mins?

    Everyone says ' why did he start if not fit enough'

    Hyde is a top player no doubt. However he is so injury prone. 3 times he has been injured already. If he is fully fit he has to start.
