Well that was the standard 3rd game car crash performance from us. Its like we want to be under pressure. Today was worse than Wrexham. Couldnt find a pass on an empty field

Utter garbage performance. Why oh why whenever do we get in a good position do we back it up with a bad performance. It’s 100% going down to the last game against Chesterfield

This set of players really is an absolute joke. No mental strength or bottle whatsoever. ‘Oh no a long throw in!!!’

Be interested to see if their equaliser actually crossed the line mind, cos it certainly didn’t look like it.

Well done Barnet!

Bassey is just quietly going about his business with no fuss. It's so refreshing after watching Beadle look like a fish out of water, then Flowers ranting and raving, then Anderson guessing at which bobsleigh training methods he can apply to football.

We should have won that tbh. You'd have mistaken us for the home side if you didn't know. But that's on us, just not clinical enough. Not sure why Danny Rowe was occupying a Pirlo position for most of the game, he needs to be further forward if he's gonna be scoring surely?

Stockport County.
We played well today, lets hope we can keep attaching ourselves to the top 3 battle as opposed to what is looking like a real dogfight for a top 7 spot with a fair few teams involved.

Throwing points away like that is inexcusable. First goal we had all three defenders leave all three attackers entirely free on the back post. Comedy defending.

He generally likes playing deeper doesn't he? he's not going to be running channels if he can help it.

I thought that was prime Danny Rowe, usually starts pinging shots from there.

this is the shitty brand of 'football' Keates makes us play, and also why we generally don't do well against anyone decent. We sit back and hope to nick something, or we go ahead and cling on desperately for the rest of the game playing deeper and deeper. Against Bromley, Halifax (first half) and Woking we played on the front foot and won comfortably.

This is why we need a change in the summer.

with three more out today we were virtually down to a five a side team. didnt expect to win and a draw was a bonus for us. umerah sent off so he misses one game. we obviously keep going to the end but notts will think they have thrown that away

I think we all know the squad is pretty limited and not good enough for promotion. We couldn't do much about as the takeover occurred at the end of the window.
Keates is also limited tactically and has a safety first approach.
The surprising thing is there is a number of limited sides around us hence even now we remain in the play off position.
We are keeping our powder dry for a spending spree in the Summer. Exciting times

That was an un-Aldershot like result, comfortable 2-0 in the end and could have scored 5. Wealdstone tried hard but lacked quality in key areas

Not to be too negative as today is a decent point, but only 1 point from our last 3 has probably killed our hopes of a play off spot. Like you say, we have a really difficult run now and 4/5 points from those 3 would be the max I can see us picking up.

Excellent, I can continue to blame our stupid players rather than the linesman (who had an excellent game actually, twice having to tell his ref that Umerah had pretty blatantly elbowed Ellis in the face).

It would feel like going out with a bit of a whimper and stumble won't it if we miss out now... Which is just bonkers when not that long ago we were staring down the North. You'd have to say this season is a success either way, but to miss out would be crap.
