2-1 to us - Wasp brace - really hoping for some reaction from players after let down on Boxing Day - Mrs A going for the usual Desmond.

I'd agree, 2-1 ... players definitely owe a performance. Newts and  Briscoe with  Styche getting their goal. Don't think their defence will get the time on the ball they had on Boxing Day with Newts around. He'll  have them under pressure. Heard they were giving it proper large n the changing rooms, that should be good motivation, alongside giving us fans something to smile about

It's been a pattern over thae last couple of seasons that we perform badly and get poor results against teams below us in the league, and you can add to that teams in lower leagues than us in the cup competitions. I have seen nothing recently to suggest that will change, can't see anything but a depressing, horrible, scrappy defeat against a depressing, horrible, scrappy team. Going for a lie down now, feeling decidedly ill at the thought.

First part was Latin, second bit was Manx Gaelic, and may I place on record my thanks to King William College, Castletown for my excellent education. See you on Sunday you old optimist.

With the exception of the win at Solihull in 2015 Boxing Day fixture has been a woeful fixture for us in the last 10 seasons. I cannot believe that one player missing makes so much difference and we let our undefeated run come to an end without any grit and determination with a fair few supporters who only make a couple of visits each season. If we are to remain as playoff hopefuls January is massive with 5 fixtures and 3 of them at home. The record against Nuneaton doesn't read very good and its time that the team put it right on Sunday.

1 away and 3 on bounce at home coming up in month - yep important indeed with pack catching up on us. A point minimum on Sunday and 3 wins at home will hopefully keep them at bay and more some. If we achieve this then in my humble opinion we will be real play-off contenders in this very competive league.

I.O.M. Lamb:

Last on your island , during TT in 1994:

* Sunday Sport Roadshow / Harley Davidson Roadshow at Villa Marina

* Miss Wet T Shirt competition, carried out by members of Suzi Quatro Band in Summerland Complex

* Yard of Ale 🍺 Competition at Suzi Quatro Concert

* Bernard Manning ( yes , he DID have black friends ) - awesome.

Great times.

The PC Brigade would probably now like to ban the f cking lot.

That's why celebrating New Year in Malta - far less PC and proud of their traditions.

Tamworth to WIN today.

Happy New Year.

Well, that was disappointing to say the least. Decided to go to Nuneaton at the last minute,& what a mistake that was. TFC were dreadful. Started well but then just faded & offered very little. Soft goal, not sure how Belly didn't save it to be honest, the ball seemed to almost swerve at the last second!. Poor display again, can't see us staying in contention for much longer if we continue to play like that!.

What a time to loose form, today slightly better than box but still poor, 80th minute for first full blooded tackle, mills poor can't protect ball, fox worse lightweight, little composure, stray passing, poor decision making, AM struggling to motivate the team, can't fault belly, bounce of ball from shot deceive any keeper, wasp best player on park again, dyer also good game, jones stupid assume for foul and abusive?, if we go and smash curzon I don't care, would rather be full blooded against Boro and still loose but lost still and no fight, players i know this is just a job to you but understand some fans might only come out for festive fixtures and need to see 1000% against bitter rivals, they might come back against curzon, understand our budget and who we can attract, just cant understand why we can be up for Fylde, Salford etc and wave the white flag against boro

I would like to say thank you to Tamworth FC for giving us faithful fans the WORST Xmas and New Year presents imaginable.How on earth can a team turn up to play against their biggest rivals on the planet, and put in a performance of that calibre.Why did the manager leave Briscoe out in favour of Dyer or Fox,Is there something going on between AM and Dyer?Why does he persist in playing him when he can't even tap a ball in the net from 5yards out.Hurry up back Conor and put some life back into our lifeless team.

Like the gate of 1002 it no longer has any real appeal to players and fans, well them any way, would have thought 1500 + today, shocked but glad I did not make the long trip. Two six nil wins will not make up for those two defeats.

Totally agree Bert, is it a coincidence that Taylor is injured & we lose to our biggest rivals twice, as you say, will be glad to see him return. At least he puts a shift in, even if he always gets subbed!. I really don't think some of our players realise what it means to us to lose to Scumeaton, I know Connor was gutted to miss these games, being ex Scumeaton, he would of been well up for it!.

I think you are illusionall if you think Connor Taylor would have had very much influence on yesterday's very poor display.
Newton was the only one who gave his all, yet again, the others proved what a mediocre side we are.

Love Belshaw to bits  but think he should be saving that. 
I thought we did okay. We were the better side, just didn't create enough. Still lack some zip, pace etc for me. 
Agree, thought Newton was Mom and Dyer did okay, Fox lacks physicality

Thanks CC thought I was the only one that believed we played well, midfield was strong and in control, defence really not troubled and had the forwards done there job 3/4 goals would not have gone a miss. could and should have scored, Boxing day was v poor, but again enough chances to have won.
On these two occasions the reason we lost was very poor goalkeeping on the goals they scored he made a few harder saves look easy, with a great save against styche. In fact reminds me of Belford a few season ago against Scumeaton.
Just our bogey team !

I was stood right behind the goal & thought right up to the last second that Belly had the shot covered, but the ball seemed to move across at the last moment & he wasn't far enough over to cover it. It was a strange one I have to admit!. But the fact no one was prepared to put a tackle in or try to block the shot was most annoying, & how Dyer missed an open goal I'll never know!. By the way red blooded, I think you mean delusional!. But I do think he would have made a difference as people seem to forget just how much ground he covers during a game & he putts the tackles in.

Sorry Highrise for late reply - trying to calm down - helped l must admit by beating Mra Argus 42-1 at Subbuteo
- shut up out there - it works for me!!!

As to comments on game - agree with some that we just about dominated first 45 but again giving away our now customary free gift to the opposition - yes team played well in first 45 but totally disagree with those who just felt we were unlucky in not winning - 2nd half appallingly predictable display from us - lacked passion and desire and will to win. Blindingly obvious that NB would play deep and defend in numbers not least as their attack was so rubbish. So what did we do - hoof the ball upto their massive centre-backs who won everything we hoofed at them- no imagination, gile or inventiveness on display - AM should hold his head in shame - the only midfielder come forward with the talents to unlock block defences came on with what 15 minutes to go to replace Mills and almost scored beating 5 defenders before being blocked out.- should have been at minimum on 55 minutes if not picked from start. Fox proving once again he has little to offer that's is any different to our slow and predictable midfield.was allowed to stay on- Ok Mills had a poor one but did he get any service in the second half - at least he has the ability to get behind defences if serviced right - Fox who took over Mills wide role has no ability to do it. Boring and predictable end - thanks AM and team - 6 points lost to a below average opposition -

Do you want the good or bad news Coton? - both Green and Taylor warming up on pitch yesterday - missed Taylor's pace and runs from midfield - some thing we don't have at moment- but just hopeing we don't have this Saturday a midfield of Fox-Green- Denney-Clarke - might almost walk out!

Agree with you on the fact that Taylor would have caused more problems than Fox. But still don't think he is our salvation.

Missing point guys - AM either currently thinks Fox is our salvation or tied into a gentle-men's agreement that he has to play every game whilst on loan and available - either way and more important Briscoe was kept out of the team by one of our midfield plodders yesterday and it may have cost us dearly - AM Never one to take chances - interesting this week-end to see if AM has the balls to include a team that has the chance to compete and SCORE from all the chances we create- lets just see!

Can't you sleep Argus or is someone rocking the boat?. I'm still seething from those last couple of games, need to get them out of my head,what I can't understand though,is some forum users saying we played well in the NY days fixture and that certain players had good games,for a start Belly should have had that shot covered,he was to slow in going for it,and a certain number 10 played like my mothers Xmas tree fairy and was running around like a headless chicken,Can anyone remember their goalie having to make a save? because I can't.Mr Morrell needs to get his team to practice taking free kicks and corners and tell them that you get goals by shooting not prancing around with the ball in front of goal.Come on Tamworth and AM give us fans something to cheer and get excited about in the 2nd half of this season.

I thought we played better than we did on Boxing Day but for a derby it was a slow game. I have reconsiled myself with the fact the weather and very poor pitch condition played a part. It has been said earlier on here from someone directly behind the goal that the ball moved in front on Belly and that made it difficult to stop. I don't think the ref helped much and I don't think we got a lot from him to be honest. I was difficult for the forwards to do anything when the ball is pumped up towards their two massive centre halves who towered over our forwards any joy they had came from the wings but still it didn't come in quick enough for me. As for saves their keeper made two saves that I can remember.. 1 in each half from Newton the second he parried to dyer who was unable to turn it in and again I think the pitch played its part in this. My overall summary was disappointment I thought the subs came too late as it was clear early on in the second half we needed a change and I would have liked to have seen opuku given a run but improved from Boxing Day and will need to pick it up now as brackley are on our heels with games in hand. So far we are in a better position than I thought we would be at the start of the season

Briscoe was shocking on Boxing Day that's probably why he got left out....


Posted By: bwm_tfc

I think saying Briscoe was shocking is a bit harsh as he seemed to give a short stint of life when he came on on Sunday. Dyer was as much use as glass hammer and as said earlier, we kept hoofing the ball up to their massive centre half's who would clear with ease, I also think the ref was lenient on time wasting again. Summary, cost £31 for me, my dad and my brother to watch that pile of sh*te...

Scamp - Briscoe was as good/bad as everyone else on Boxing Day - thought and said before kick-off he should have been included - but the bigger sin was AMs decision to only put him on with 15 minutes to go - AM still has a lot to learn in my opinion - anyone out there willing to defend Briscoe coming on so late in game.

I agree subs came too late for me, it was clear IMO that we needed to change something. We did not get much joy but that said I trust AM to make the decisions we don't know what goes on behind the scenes and so far this season we have done better than I thought we would at the start given the budget we have against the others in our league . It does worry me that we will miss Jones after his red card we let lots of goals in before he came in we don't have Ezwele so it has to be lane and thommo? Hopefully they can pull together well.does anyone know how long will Jones be out for?

Agree with comments from Confusious regarding where we are at in terms of league position,given our budget. Think AM does pretty well given resources available compared to others in our league. Therein lies the problem i guess. Unless extra revenue to improve the squad is made available, then we will i fancy fall short of promotion play off spots. I think i read somewhere recently that AM had said that the playing budget has remained the same for a good while now. Its a difficult one i know, given as others have pointed out that a lot of money has been spent on the playing surface and hospitality area etc. However we are ultimately judged by performances and results on the field. If we are serious about pushing on then we somehow need to improve the budget to allow better quality players to be brought in in certain areas. We as fans can play our part by contributing to the teambuilder fund, which i already do, and would encourage those that are able to do the same. I personally think we have 2 good guys in AM & MF at the helm, but they arent miracle workers.

Sorry DL - nothing about budget more about using what we have - and AM has not delivered on that front in my opinion - others may disagree but hey ho - l accept AM Is not a miracle worker because if he was he would have signed a player called Devine Intervention on the wing and left him out or put him on 15 minutes from end of a match when it's to late providing of course he was not on loan and then starts every time!!!!!

And can score sublime goals out of nothing - Alty away got us 3 points on his own and playing best form of his life for us to date and then totally disregarded by a manager highly rated by so many of you lot on here - decided to play safe with an extra midfield-plodder - on hum - sorry no wonder on Saturday we will be left with the 550 or so main stays starved of entertainment other than the 6 or so decent home performances each season - loved to be proved wrong but seriously doubt it will happen. Also getting a bit peeved about consistent comments about lack of budget in defence of AM - guess we have what around 8/9 highest budget in league so on that basis not unreasonable with decent squad assembly and resulting player choices a play-off place cant be achieved! - after all he's had two full close seasons to date to make his mark.

I O M Lamb, it does not follow what budget was Leciester on last season.

Surely it's about signing key players in key areas and then working to build a team around them, without over loading a persific type of player or position, which we have done, four centre halves, plus Green, with one striker.

Childish yes - perhaps someone needs to grow up fast - this site has enough problems getting contributors - without being abused and made fun of by fellow fans - I would never dream of doing that - it hurts but more than that what a waste of a public school education - some of us had to put with Secondary - oh hum Off-Shore you've really gone just one step to far this time - I may never contribute to this site ever ever ever ever again.

Didn;t overload. Luke Jones came in when Ezewele and Green were out injured and Tommo was out of form. We will be down to two when Jones serves his suspension!

Not true Jones has been training with us since July just did not offer a contract at that time, so must have had intentions of signing him. A budget is a budget bring a better defender in, move the poorer defender on. No one can foresee injuries or suspensions, you get on with it. Still only have one striker

Two Gates - your views seriously wanted on two areas please?
1 - opinion on midfield - did we overload on indifference?

2 - opinion on attack - did we overload on under-loading?

Jones was simply training with the club  to get fit after a serious injury, was not budgeted for as was unclear as whether would get back paying again

Midfield is the only area I am concerned with and where I feel we got it wrong. Happy with the  attack of Mills, Newton and Dyer.
