What's this about? Because you played the game despite having a few Covid cases? You managed to pick 7 subs, so can't be that bad. We only had 4, and we don't have an U23 squad to pick from. One of the subs had just been recalled from loan at Stevenage so we could play.Our pitch has been noticeably deteriorating for a while now. One of many lacklustre things going on behind the scenes. When the new owner joined there was talks of a £500,000 pitch improvement - which I hope this isn't it.
In similar news I reckon if you asked Chris Maguire before the game to write the perfect script he'd have come out with something like what happened; score a hattrick against the manager that turfed you out and he also gets sent off. It was one of those games where we started terribly and after the goal and celebration you thought 'if that doesn't wake the players up, nothing will' turns out nothing will.
At least we've won the Integrity of the Competition Cup. Can add that to the many pretend competitions we have won since being down here - Pizza Cup and Trafalgar Square Shield (x2)
We had 2 right backs in central defence, a midfielder at right back, our captain and our top scorer and 3 first-choice centre backs all out with injuries. Our bench was 2 left backs, a defensive midfielder and a goalkeeper. I am amazed at the result considering the makeshift side we put out.
