    League 2 Rivalries

    I sit at the opposite end now but I like to think I am personally responsible for starting that block of scrotes. In 2009ish we did a thread called 'singing block'. This was when we were getting about 1600 attendances some weeks in the Conference. The premise was essentially if you read the...

    The idea that you have to be positive is bloody weird. If we think the product is crap we should just say it so it can get better. I'm convinced it could be March 2023, 19th in the league, and they'd still be clapping Dempster. "Show your support, be positive, be a true fan".

    Best football played was that half season under Flitcroft. That half season was genuinely excellent. Evans won plenty but lumped it a lot rather than playing football and disappeared after half a season. Everyone else seems to fade away into nothingness. It's difficult because noone has really...

    I read that he believes in things like staying lively and switched on in the box as the principles, rather than a style as such. It's probably why there doesn't appear to be conviction in a big idea, with random team selections and formations, and no established patterns of play. Tbh I thought...

    It was just a weird team and tactic selection. Barring the worst injury and suspension crisis imaginable there's really no excuse for a professional football team to line up like that. When I saw the team selection I couldn't get my head around what he was thinking.

    We had lots of slower strikers around that time and they weren't that bad. Barry Conlon, Martin Gritton and Danny Reet I remember being decent. Nothing special but certainly not the worst. Danny Reet was my favourite. I saw him once in Sheffield and I told him about how good I thought he was in...

    I couldn't imagine playing Khan at right back for any reason. Surely that ended in disaster.

    I found the difference between NL and L2 was the gulf in quality between the top sides and the rest of the league. In NL was easier to look good in more games when you were gaining confidence from dismantling teams who were of much lesser quality. Form in L2 was more difficult to maintain...

    I just think I'd expect a L2 defender to be composed enough to comfortably play a 15 yard pass, cushion a header or boot/head it away without messing it up and giving straight back to the opposition if under pressure. I don't expect him to be plucking balls out the sky but I'm of the opinion...

    He can't reliably anticipate where the ball is going to land. When he does anticipate where it's going to land he can't guide a header so it goes anywhere. His first touch is not good if he is playing with his feet. If he does control it with his first touch he can't pass it so gives turnovers...

    What do you mean by suspect at shot stopping? In what area? Curious as I thought he was a good shot stopper.

    Very good. His minor weakness, I can think of two or three goals last season where he would be disappointed with his footwork/positioning from the games that I watched. Mckirdy goal at home Vs Swindon and Northampton goal from edge of the box in the play-offs are examples. However, I would be...

    Not sure, he hadn't played that much though.

    They have performed steadily enough but we can get better players than Bowery and Hewitt. Of the oldies I'd keep Quinn. Perch has done little wrong but I'm convinced not a CB, O'Toole the better of the two and we can't go without natural CBs again. Some balancing of the squad is needed...

    Would avoid if possible. Doesn't anticipate the bounce of the ball very well, not a good trait for a CB. On our retained list I would have been a little harsher, probably added 2 or 3 more names.

    Will Leeds be relegated?

    I would have stuck with the manager. Despite all the goals they were conceding I think they made a mistake getting rid.

    Friday & Saturday 4th/5th March

    Exeter were a good team with good patterns. They were a little bit nice though and could have been more aggressive. Bishop was outstanding again barring that spill at the end. Caprice was average and average when Tranmere visited too, sorry to say.

    We should have got a second goal much sooner. It was a good end to the game though when they got one back. I thought for a split second we might mess it up at the end. Thankfully their player delivered a shocking cross at the only time you absolutely cannot deliver a rubbish cross. Judge is a...

    Yes, Matt Longstaff. I don’t base it on that goal as I didn’t see it. What little I’ve seen of him on the tele he’s looked competent in the PL. I can’t speak for the loan spell at Aberdeen but we don’t sign players with 14 PL appearances, at least not until they are ageing pros. I stand by...

    I am calling Matt Longstaff one of the best signings we’ve ever made. I’m not saying that he will be good. What I mean is that a League Two club has no right to bring in a player with that reputation. Must praise all involved with the recruitment team and management on that one whether it works...
