- King's Lynn
This seems a pretty fair reflection of yesterday's game. We never looked like losing and somebody soon will be on the end of a thrashing. The officials were pretty poor all afternoon for both sides but nothing can take away the performance of the home goalkeeper. Curzon will cause problems for most teams they play.Bloody good point yesterday for Curzon but Kings Lynn must wonder how it wasn’t 3
I’ll say it now, I cannot see past Kings Lynn for the title. I have not in my time at this level seen a side which looks as solid and useful all across the park…….cannot see many keeping up with them unless they hit an injury crisis.
Their two forwards are extremely hard to deal with which makes it hard to cope when they go forward. Still we have it a good go and nearly got the 3 points.
I felt we only had one area we were at effective as them which was midfield and first half we used that well, we dominated the possession and play, but created not a single real chance from it, while they had 2-3 good opportunities from less of the ball.
Second half they upped game or we got tired and dominated, our goalie pulled off numerous superb stops all half. Amazingly we got lead from a rare counter breaking into box where goalie had two options of pulling player down or letting player round him……he pulled player down, always think goalies should let player round them since half the time they miss from tighter angles.
That fired up KL even more and we got battered for a while but held on for that period and started to get back the ball when unlucky for us they scored, just got chance and top class save rebound chance to another top class save then rebound and in…..never
Got the ball out.
After that we frankly just held on through
More good stops but did get a couple of breaks one late on seen a ball across face of goal but runners too late.
Well earned point for our effort but they were a lot better than us, doubt I will see better.
Just wish our manager had changed it at 1-1 and not been cowardly, but managers never do thesedays, won’t make subs until their winner happens because they are worried changes will lose them game…..yet we just held on by good saves and luck than tactics.
