Grant Smith does really well to save a penalty looks decent this kid. Not sure I agree with our commentary saying it wasn't a pen. The lad went down before he was touched, but you're entitled to to win the pen if someone is putting their body in front of you. Gonna be a pen at most levels that. Do like this keeper tho

Free streaming from Maidenhead, not bad after early weird camerawork. Very strange commentary, like a couple of pipe-smoking geography teachers in the staff room. Excellent team effort from the Shots, second yellow for Columbie one of the worst refereeing decisions I have ever seen.
Team now showing a bit of belief, just a little consistency needed.

I'm getting real tired of hearing Big Al call Kosylo 'kiloso'

I’m sure both managers will say that was a fascinating battle between two good, evenly matched teams. Fucking hell, though, it was dull.

Good on the linesman for helping us keep our record of not having conceded from open play since 1873.

Good win that after an under par performance.

Can't blame the team for looking leggy though. Just glad to the 3 after a sluggish display

Just wait until you come to the Racecourse

Saturday promises to be a classic then.

Decent point vs. Eastleigh, visitors far more in control in the second half but Stones defence was resolute.

FT 1-0

Very happy with that win, nowhere near our best but dug out the 3 points! Won’t be long til Alty start picking up wins again

Loz Maguire outstanding at the back today, probably best I’ve seen him play in a Chesterfield shirt over the last 5/6 years!

If your defence is solid then we may go a full 180 minutes without a shot on target after Saturday. Looking forward to it!

Totally agree with this, can’t argue with the free stream and quality was generally alright. Commentary was comical I thought, particularly enjoyed the comments every time a train went past about where it was heading and what type of train it was.

Stockport County.
Watching us under this boring bastard from Brighton is enough to make me want null and void. Horrendous manager playing horrendous football. That was a terrible football match.

I have to say Notts County were probabaly worse over the piece. Doesn't bode well for either.

The lino gave that offside call in the first half because the Notts County players shouted loudly. Simple as that to be honest.

Feels like a defeat that, ref bottling the penalty decision aside, we are so frustrating to watch, we waste so many chances.
Really disappointed we didn’t win that,we just can’t seem to finish teams off away from home.
But looking at the brightside,we didn’t get beat off a fellow play off contender.

Reffed out of that, bizarre penalty awards for Sutton but little surprise with all their moaning at the ref for the whole game top gamesmanship. Should have had a player sent off too. Hope they go up can’t be dealing with the cheats again next season. Think the national league want a tinpot side to go up so the refs help them and the bigger sides stay down.
Sutton are the masters of cheating,sorry,gamesmanship in this league.
Made me laugh when Grey whinged about us doing recently.

You should be thankful you didn't hear "that's a booking for Kosylo" walking yellow card that bloke but a decent player if his head is screwed on right.

Edit: just checked the line ups turns out he did get booked. There's a surprise

wow that was an excellent result for us. didnt see that and was expecting crap defending. played 3 centre halves and billy waters worked his socks off and deserved his goal. there was a 7 minute delay for a head injury. then they hit the bar and from resulting cross looked like a handball. then our keeper got sent off coming we had a keeper to come on and they scored one but survived the final onslaught. buse was available in midfield and nullified their threat. thankfully we have signed an experoienced forward in boden. im sure he will get a game in the trophy but keeper sus[ended , other keeper cup tied for truro so will be a young keeper in on saturday

Is he one of these fancy new coaches who has read a few coaching manuals, got their fancy badges and do everything based off stats? What’s your xG?

At this level it is all about organisation and motivation, simple as that. Fuck the technical shit.

Both teams looked very similar tbh, unwilling to commit many players forward, always taking a safe option in possession etc.

Rooney was the only player on the pitch willing to try anything, didn’t always come off but was the reason why you had the couple of half decent chances there was in the whole game. Everyone else was just safety first constantly.

Keates poll on RP makes for hilarious reading.

I can't even work out the football style really. The best I could give if you is like watching a football version of Chess. Only one piece seems to move at one time.

We're proper hitting the panic button as well I think. Signed two lads from Chorley this week who weren't even in the squad tonight. Vulture-like really, taking advantage of the situation down there. Our squad is huge now although we do have injuries. Continuity is non existent.

That board makes for hilarious reading every time you get beat.
Stockports is also quite good at the moment.
We want Keates gone after we win to be honest.

I popped onto your board earlier today and there had been like 5 posts all day. Have you all migrated?

The fact we are in the playoffs and want him out ASAP shows how much he is despised.

It’s 90% his style of play I would say, he just won’t change even though his days are clearly numbered here. We would very likely have gone down last season if not for COVID hitting, he got away with it all far too easily.

The bunker used to be busy but now is deserted, it's not worth reading and shows the club in a bad light these days. Should be shut down.

It's run by a couple of old right-wing cranks who delete posts from people who don't agree with Brexit or aren't racist. Everyone's moved to different forums or FB groups. You have to know people to get on them mind. Big divisions in our fanbase not helped by the North West Corner vs Trust BEEF.

The only public opinions you'll get from us are from here or Twitter. If you want to know what we're thinking - we all unanimously agree you badly miss Adi Yussuf.
