Birmingham Senior Cup tomorrow. A competition I pretty religiously snub to be honest but given the fixture is approximately a ten minute walk from my house (fifteen if I divert to the Cross Keys pre match), I'm going to have a look. Many others?

We are going if I can find out ticket prices and they are not charging silly money.

Spoke to a Hednesford fan today who said it was £8 in for adults and £2 kids tonight for those interested.

2-1 to Hednesford. Only 8 mins remain.

Lost two one after extra time and that was probably fair but that was far from our worst performance. First half we deserved to be behind but we were the better team second half, deserved our equaliser and could've nicked it. In extra time, they improved again and probably shaded it just about enough to deserve to get through.

Gill made a couple of outstanding saves but Crane made a terrific stop from Jackson to keep them level just after we'd equalised. Trainer had a good game at left back and when pushed up into midfield and Smith had another good game at the back.

It's only the BSC so I won't cry about being out but that was a decent game tonight for £8.

Mostly agree with Priceys outlook on the game.  But will only add that the chap that played in the number 5 shirt either had a really bad day at the office or was simply out of his depth, and our inability to put in dangerous corners again tonight was annoying.  Not a terrible performance though, and I reckon the club might be secretly pleased there will be no more Senior Cup games this season.

As I passing on my way home I decided to attend my first game of the season, so having time to reflect on the 90 minutes of tonight, yes I left as I could not see the next 30 minutes being any better or worse than the 90 and with a two hour plus journey home, I just didn't fancy getting in past midnight, any way I can only judge what was put in front of me, thought we started ok but without any end product, one decent ball into the box and one shot off target about summed up our first half, and thankfully a goalkeeper that kept the score respectable, second half much the same but a little more intent, a bad mistake by there defence gave us the equaliser. Sadly only two players stood out, the goalkeeper and the lad in the number 11 shirt, as for number 7 Taylor he is far to lightweight knocked all over the place, ginger number 10 looks unfit and holds on the ball far to long missed two good chances to pull the ball back to players in good positions to shoot second half.
That was my first BSC game in over 23 years were does time go.

AM needs to get a least 4 good players in just to make sure we survive in this league.

The thing to remember is last night was mainly squad players - only 5 of Saturdays team started last night.
 
I dont like either of the Senior Cups but they are useful for the manager to have a look at players who dont usually get a game.
 
It sounds like we have good back up for Belshaw anyway.

I personally don;t think we need that many players. This  group of  players are  good enough, barring one or two maybe.
Once  Morrell  gets them playing the way he wants, I reckon they will  starting picking up wins.

This group of players aren't good enough and that's clearly demonstrated by the table...

You must be watching a different team to me. I have a job to think of many of the squad that I would keep!!

I think we must keep Smith who is on loan from Shrewsbury as he is a class above most of our players. He is central defender who can pass the ball and not just hoof it up field.

Agreed, Smith, Hibbert, Preston, Belshaw and Taylor (purely for his effort) are the only ones I would keep, the rest, sorry, not good enough. I will reserve judgement on Thornton and Townsend, not had enough game time yet.

I am normally the 1st to moan and sl*g off players when results are not going our way but to be honest I have to say that I have seen the green shoots of revival over the last few games, I feel that at long last the players appear as though they are starting to bond and want to play for each other and not just as individuals.

I don't think it will be very long before we start seeing us win matches and start to move up the table, I was one of the hardy few that went to Hednesford on Tuesday and I think we were good for the draw and just ran out of steam and luck in extra time, this was also an experimental side as most were either played out of position or were starting their 1st game of the season.

It's about time we all started to get behind the lads and stop being keyboard warriors on here slagging them off all the time.

For a side that has created nothing I'd argue Jackson (only a young lad) has done pretty well to get 5 goals so far, having also got a good return in the Conference North last year.  I guess time will tell who is right. Most of these players are under contract  and will be here for the  season so we will see where we are come the end of the campaign

3 of the 4 teams that have beaten us are in the top 6. Draws consistent against teams spread throughout the table top to bottom. I dont see too much to worry about.
Townsend Thornton James and Mettam have been bit part players due to niggles. Sleath gone for season.
I think with more luck, less injuries and a settled side, the results would not have been so bad with more wins. 
Belford certainly knew his keepers!! The rest of the squad has not been able to gel into a unit due to aforementioned. Some on here would not be happy if we had championship players. 
As a team we get better results away from the Lamb, I wonder why that is ?

Wake up and smell the coffee for heavens sake. How can you be happy with been in the bottom three??

Not happy but am realistic, new team, new manager, cut them some slack ffs. We all need to be patient as requested by Morell when appointed. Having digs at individuals does nowt for moral.

I agree with Etonboybodger.
 
There are far too many indivduals on here who are only interested in moaning and slagging the players off. Get behind them. 1 defeat in 4 (not counting the senior cup) is an improvement.
 
Makes me wonder what some people on here expect.

What I expect is to be be a little higher than 20th in the league, and to have won more than 1 league match!    Clearly this is too much for some, maybe I should aim lower!

abcdefg Youth, presumably you are a Tfc supporter. What do you hope to achieve by constantly knocking your clubs players?

If you think you can influence team selection, you are clearly wrong. If you think you can influence the board, to tear up the contracts of players and shove them out the door, you are clearly wrong.

The players have no right to reply, so have to take abuse and criticism on the chin. Would you be prepared to tell a player to their face that they are "sh*t".

Belford was sacked because the team that he put together did not produce. The new guy has had a few games and training sessions and things are clearly improving. The players we have are what weve got like it or lump it. Moaning about it is not going to change anything except drain everybodys morale.
Clearly if you cant live with the transition, it is going to be a long miserable season for you!

Are the forum Police back?

Everyone is allowed a point of view... Right / Wrong / Agree / Disagree 
Not enough people post on here anymore. Any comment should be welcomed.... Its people like you that put people off from posting on here!

If players worry about what fans are saying in forums, moaning on terraces about them they are in the wrong job! Get a grip!  Players can answer back on the field... Shame most aren't good enough!

These players aren't good enough and it's the legacy of Belford so Morrell as big task on his hands but support him as the new manager.

There are only 3players of any merit and I couldn't give a toss if people don't like anyone having a go on here....look at the table, relegation looks likely if we don't ship out some of the garbage we have on the books,, we don't and haven't scored enough goals.

I've been to watch Bolehall today, £5 pound in, free parking and a pretty good standard of football and they win more than they lose...that's what I call value for money.....fact

Sure matey everyones opinion is welcome, sadly I dont believe that calling someone s++t constitutes an opinion. Its more of an abusive rant than an opinion, dont you agree old boy?
Iam pleased that you imbue me with such potency, Whats that old saying "the pen is mightier than the sword". I actually do not care whether the players are affected by random abuse. I just question the point of it. Everyone who has watched Tfc this season is aware that the team is struggling and Iam sure we all want better results. Lets pull together both on and off the pitch for a brighter future togther eh, eh ?

Iam pleased for you mate Bolehall is where I grew up, I was at Brackley and had a very frustrating afternoon. The team controlled the game especially 2nd half and should relly have had apen just before half time. At least you havent singled out individuals in your post. I dont agree with you about relegation, I think with a bit more luck and some better finishing we will win more games. I dont see us going up but football is a long term investment and Morell has asked for patient support. Iam willing to give these lads the benefit of the doubt, only time will tell. 
Brackley were outplayed second period and hung on for a point after dominating early doors. We needed a goal 2nd half and we would have taken 3 points.
