0-0 with stevenage! anti football at its very best both teams were complete dross, not helped by a pitch which is now not good enough even for eggchasing.

I hope the efl meeting this week finds in our favour so we can play the rest of our home games at dragon park or cardiff city stadium.

Hurst tried for his classic 1-0 away win today and were not in a position to be doing that at this stage of the season especially when we lack goal scorers.

Harrogate the better side, that said we had a few chances to equalise. Hanson with a criminal miss from 8 yards he put over the stand, and our two goal scorers from Tuesday that were dropped today come on and both have good shots blocked by defenders.

He has to play wingers and stick to 4-4-2 from now on, and some won't like me saying this but I'd like to see Hanson dropped for LJL, we just can't make use of the headers Hanson wins because there is nobody about to make use of them. With LJL it's played to his feet and he lays it of for the midfielders to keep the attack going.
I actually agree with the logic with LJL but in practice he’s also been poor.

Only Matete and Eastwood have clearly improved us, some of Hurst signings have actually sent us backwards (Menayese and Bunney in particular).

Disagree, LJL has hardly been on to make a fair assessment, but on Saturday for example there was only once when he failed to give the ball to one of our players, with his usual poor first touch leading to giving away a foul.

The way things are going I don't think we'll be hearing from hellogregory again for some time.

Bamboozle? Haha, those were the days.
Yeah I loved a game of Bamboozle, then after that I’d plug in my Commodore 16 and stick my game in and wait about 10 minutes for it to load up.
Happy days.

How come every time I see that Oldham players name I can’t help thinking of the old channel 4 teletext quiz?
the same reason people think Mayonnaise when a certain Grimsby defenders name comes up.

Ebou Adams red card has been overturned by the FA. Great news for us, but a bit surprising as it was one of those that appeals you don't often win.

Surprising given it's a studs up challenge, but a real lottery which appeals are succeeding.

Looked bad on the live match but shown from another angle it was not as bad as it seemed.
Yellow yes but Red not.
And to think that Mark Cooper got a Yellow for protesting. :doh:
Immediately after the game MC said they would not be disputing the decision. A lot changes in 24 hours.

Adams is one of FGR's most influential players so good news for the team.

Not saying Bolton are in a false position but I don’t think they’re anything special either. Their last 4 wins were against sides at the bottom end of the table. Be interesting to see how they get on when they’re back playing against some of the leagues better opposition

You guys are picking up the points, but I remember when Mansfield were not so long ago......

you guys have much more quality upfront and a squad x2 but never take it for granted.
