    Managerial Merry-Go-Round 2020/21

    That's been the problem - Rowberry seems to be a nice guy but completely unable to get consecutive good performances out of individuals or the team. Even this early in the season I'm worried. Very few of our players look L2 standard.

    League 2 Rivalries

    I'd argue we don't really have one. Some supporters hate Cardiff, but I subscribe to the idea it has to be felt mutually.

    Saturday 3rd September

    Every sympathy for individuals but surely people have been taken ill during play since time immemorial without it being stopped? Obviously there must be exceptions when access to the pitch is needed, but Isn't it mostly just a way to dramatise things for breathless match reporting?

    Abraham played 3 + 9 for us in L2 but got booked for times. Scored two in the Trophy and one in the EFL Cup. He was out of contention before Christmas so you'd expect Fulham to have sent him somewhere else but we were, er, saddled. I have never seen a player like him for running into blind...

    Saddlers supporters - is Aneurin Livermore still trialling?

    Preseason Friendlies 22/23

    Apparently the 0-0 at Torquay was poor but I never pay any heed to friendly results. On paper we started the first XI outfielders with the rest winning 4-0 at Weston on Friday. I like Rowberry's approach of not using triallists, I'm struggling to think when one last paid off. Fingers crossed...

    Preseason Friendlies 22/23

    Lost 2-0 to Cardiff at the athletics stadium near their ground. Looks a good crowd, sensibly sold only to home supporters to deter an element of our support still stuck in the 80s.

    Preseason Friendlies 22/23

    Aneurin Livermore who trialled for Flynn yesterday looked the best Newport youth prospect for years but plummeted out of favour early last season.

    Preseason Friendlies 22/23

    Abraham is hopeless, very athletic but just no football instinct. Flynn saddled us with him last season, discarded him very early, Fulham didn't want him back and I don't think Rowberry ever used him. More of a training exercise but we played two one-hour "matches" against Hungerford from NLS...

    Preseason Friendlies 22/23

    One good thing about the Undy friendly is I don't think we used any triallists. It's traditionally our first game and we use half a dozen, rarely find out any names. Rowberry seems much more decisive about his squad.

    On his day Sheehan is way too good for L2 but he tends to play too deep to do the damage he could. Obvs that might have been his instructions. For us he mostly played alongside Labadie but I thought he was better without him when he had to take more responsibility. We were shafted in the PO...

    Apart from his blinding pace Timmy Abraham is useless, just not a footballer. Shockingly easy to dispossess and then fouls the player who has taken the ball off him. It's like watching a 10-year-old.

    We had Janneh a couple of years ago but the loan was ruined by injuries, hamstring IIRC. If reliably fit he'd be a really good signing.

    Josh Pask who we were rumoured to be bringing back after a so-so loan last season now rumoured to be joining TNS in the Cymru Premier. Suppose it could be just to beef them up for their summer Euro games, that has happened before. But particularly for a player who struggles to stay fit a...

    Left back Adam Lewis on loan from Liverpool, looks like a good CV and it's a position we badly need a reliable player in. But why do huge clubs keep on youth programme graduates well into their 20s when you need to be world-class to get into the main squad?

    We've had worse left backs than Ryan Haines but he hardly ever seemed to follow one good game with another. I wondered if he was too easily satisfied with his own contributions.
