Hopefully some of you have all made it over here!

Currently we are defending well at Kidderminster and not really creating much, typical away performance from us!

made it, good game earlier, don't know what was up with Barnet but they weren't great, maybe we just made them look bad. Closed them down well and worked hard. Their defence was all over the place whenever we ran at them and I don't remember Mckeown having a save to make. Pretty poor from the league leaders really. Didn't even know Akinde was playing either apart from his run to win a penalty in the first few minutes he didn't do much.

That said we played very well and you have to question why with the same formation and pretty much the same players we didn't turn up in the second half against Lincoln or against Macc. It shouldn't take the league leaders for our players to but in a performance.

Barnet never really got into it today, agreed with both penalties. Back to back defeats for Barnet, Bristol still drawing but a great chance to close the gap today.

We are starting to get in the game a bit more this half.

Had my posting disabled by the Stalinist regime, but here now.

Great performance from Town today. Really bossed Barnet at times, I felt. Palmer had a really good game and as you say Pearson and Toto nullified Akinde. Hope he managed to navigate his way out of their collective pockets and find the Barnet team bus.

Hope MD makes it over here would love to see what he has to say on Wrexham today :p
Was going to say what the hell is going on with Wrexham? With their players they should be comfortably in the top 10 not anywhere near the bottom half. Even with games in hand they have only won 2 games in their last 14 league games and to be 2-0 down at home to Telford inside 10 mins is awful.

Losing 4-0 at home to Telford? They have no chance of getting anywhere near the play offs at the moment, is Wilkin on borrowed time?

Full time great away day performance from us, especially with Bristol and Woking looking like they will have a stalemate.

Good 3-0 win for us today. Sounds like Aldershot had most of the ball but we were just clinical in front of goal - with Charlee Adams scoring another long range stunner!

That's six straight home wins for us now in the league, and the play offs are definitely still on.

Happy with a point today, their defence was very good and Ross Lafayette looks very strong up front. I'm happy with a point against the 2nd best side in the league

Awful performance no striker on the pitch for 65 minutes. 1 shot on target from 40 yards useless
Sounded like we were there for the taking in the first half, standard away performance from us sit tight and nick a goal where we can. Great 3 points with alot dropping points. Lincoln are definitely dark horses for the play offs.

Aldershot had something silly like 20 corners today apparently. Didn't sound as though we were at our best, particularly the first 20 minutes, but still hit the post and created chances.

Adams has gone and beaten his Grimsby goal buy all accounts!

Can confirm Adams' goal today was better than the Grimsby one. Technically perfect.

We'll fuck Tuesday up, but who cares. Winning matches. #FortressSincil o_O

As I said on TFF, no complaints about the result. Played Hunt at right back from some reason and we'd left ourselves a lot to do by time we changed it. Woking getting a draw though made it a slightly better day.

We need to sort ourselves out if we are to keep BR at bay. The defence and midfield were awful. Hunt at RB was a shocking selection, he's nowhere near good enough for a promotion chasing Conference team and he was destroyed the last time he played for us in that position, pretty worrying that MA wants to extend his loan.

Haven't entered panic mode just yet, but we are no longer in title winning form and that 5 point gap will be overhauled by next month if we keep playing like we have in the past two weeks.

This is messing with my brain.

Is this a different name of a TFF Imp, or a new one?!

Made it over here to talk about that awful game :(

The defence, the attack and the midfield all awful. The White, York and Jennings were the worst in the first half. All were gone by the second half. Unfortunately for the team Jennings stupidity lead to him going. Diving in recklessly, right in front of the ref which left him with no choice.

I've wanted him to change the formation for awhile as 4-4-2 does nothing for us. If he survives to the summer he's got a lot of work to do.

Andy Scott and Kevin Wilkin should both be getting sacked on Monday morning, Wilkin particularly. What he's done with that Wrexham side is absolutely criminal.

Not great but Brizzle cheered me up.

Had chances first half but once Grimsby got the third we fell apart.

Said it on the old forum (RIP). We've been found out and will not win the title, this kind of form has been coming for weeks. We are very good at beating rubbish teams but just cannot compete against teams that want it just as much as us. We keep on hearing these comments like 'Well Rovers/Lincoln/Kidderminster/Grimsby won't play like that every week' but why is it that they keep putting out these performances against us? We're not strong enough to compete against teams who are slightly good at playing football.

We will be in the playoffs but will not be a threat. The teams around us are simply a little more naive in playing the lower teams, but more than up to it when they play teams of a similar standard.

I'm annoyed in myself because I let myself believe, even just a little bit, that I might actually see Barnet succeed at something for once. Of course, as I'm now long used to, we won't be going anywhere for a long while.

Agreed. Thought we were going to nick it at the end. Good to see Scott Rendell coming on for 15 minutes too. I think it's gradually coming together again.

We were very poor today. It's unforgivable to play over an hour without a striker when you've got three on the bench and then only put on the least experienced of them when we're chasing the game. I think Macclesfield came to sneak a goal to win it and they did that. IT didn't make for the most exciting of games, but I can't remember a meaningful chance we had.

4 games lost on the bounce at Aggborough now and our next three home games are Eastleigh, Woking and Halifax. We need to start getting results at home again as soon as possible. Fortunately we've won our last 3 away games so fingers crossed this will continue this week.

Sorry I'm late I've been laffing my socks of at Wrexham all afternoon. I mean, I genuinely love the club but MasterDebator is a PR disaster for them. :eek:
