3-0 to us - Morley hat-trick and given an additional 3 year contract after match likewise AM - gate 121 Morley given in sponsors lounge a clock for long service and in his speech he mentions how proud he is in continuing to wear the TFC shirt - timeline 2019 - sh*t is this a nightmare

After the last two games a decent performance would be a welcome change let alone points on the board. Whether AM's chosen formation and tactics are positive or not those 11 players on the field need to put a shift in, stand up and be counted. If any individual can't do that in a derby they deserve all the abuse they get from the home fans and should be moved on.

Seems to be piss take time, so 14- nil, although as said will be happy with just 6 -nil.

Since we almost leveled the pitch, how come were still running up a hill.

Totally agree, regardless at any criticism aimed at AM, there was absolutely no excuse from the players  on Boxing Day. It was nothing short of a disgrace. If they can't get up for the next game, it will say everything about  their respect for AM but also  their attitude towards the  fans.

Two centre mids suspended for Nuneaton but they've just added Kenedy Digie to their squad from Kidderminster. Decent signing that.

We’ve had Sound of Music (NWL half way up a mountain no doubt in Julie Andrews drag singing) and Youths pitiful attempt at marriage guidance but now let’s get serious - 4-1 to us Knights getting 2 Powell 1 and Verma 1 - gate 1049. Will keep AM in job as if Sir Bob was going to sack him anyway.

Well that was better not that it could have been worse than last week.Looked more like a team today but lets remember it was against a team fighting relegation.Powell threatend more today and taylor put in a good shift.Lets hope we can continue to improve and today was not just a one off.

Good to see us win against a bottom three team and even better it was them

But please no talk about play offs, unless we win the next 5 in a row.

Thought today proved AM has backing of the players. Switch back to three centre halves was spot on and Jones seemed to have had a kick up arse because  you could hear  him talking  to his team and organizing. Burns, Kettle and Taylor all had decent games as well and Powell was my MoM .. tracked back well while also causing problems  for their defence and scoring a delightful goal.

Thank you Simon - So next time you criticise us fans and on home form it will be sometime in March by all means get in first

Much better overall and what you expect from the first 11.
Ricketts looked good at the back, Jones more vocal, taylor worked his balls off and deserved a goal
All without Deeney who I assume wanted to spend as with Troy!


Posted By: Pilgrim Pod
Date Posted: 01 Jan 2018 at 8:50pm
Kudos to AM for getting it right today. I thought it was a decent performance and great result. Particularly impressed with Kettle and Ricketts.

If not for Powell's well taken goal my own MotM would have gone to Burns.

I have to question though how we got rolled over by this Nuneaton side on Boxing Day, I thought they were really poor.

I was personally pleased to see Deeney nowhere near the first team. Anyone know why he wasn't even on the bench?

If there's truth to it speaks volumes about the player. Arguably the biggest league fixture and if the guy has made himself unavailable due to unprofessional antics he wants his contract tearing up. Transfer listing him; is he actually worth a fee to another club?

Thought Verma has not performed as well as when he first arrived. Perhaps Deeny hasn't helped him. But Deeny has had hit and miss all season. Back in July in the friendlies I wrote on here I didn't think he should be in the team. If he's going no loss in my opinion. Has Ricketts come up from the youth. Not sure if we saw him in friendlies. As for Powell. Needs to control that enthusiasm. Has been left on the sidelines far too often. There's quite a few of our under 21's that need the opportunity to show they can hold their own in the first team.

Signed from Mansfield in October for the u21 team. Looked the part against Boro but they would have made me look good in defence they were that poor.

Firstly a much better performance yesterday than recent stuff witnessed.and 3 very welcome points. It was good to see players actually wanting to compete and win yesterday,something sadly missing of late. Without getting too carried away i thought Nuneaton were extremely poor,and possibly the worse team i have seen at the Lamb all season,but you can only beat what is in front of you, and its always pleasing to beat that lot. I am very critical of the defence but credit where credit is due i thought they did very well yesterday,the young lad Ricketts in particular did exceptionally well as did Kettle. Great to see a clean sheet which was astonishingly the first one at home all season. Well done lads and lets see the same sort of application and desire in future games


Posted By: I.O.M.Lamb

I think the defence were helped by having a half decent keeper behind them. Jezeph is guilty of the occasional mistake, as are all keepers at this level, but he is miles better than Rowley who should be shipped back to Shrewsbury immediately, if not sooner.

AM mentions in his post match interview the loan deal has now ended and we'll be looking to secure the services of a more experienced keeper better equipped to handle the pressure.

To be fair to AM, Rowley was a bit $hit though wasn't he regardless of age. LOL

AM played a few of the younger lads; maybe it is time to take your AM bashing blinkers off?

Jezeph is our youth not Rowley? - Ricketts was forced on AM to play when loads have been calling for him to be included - AM even ignored him after MOM against Bradford preferring to bring Kettle in on loan. Not my fault AM said what he did during the 5 year plan about youth being a risk. AM have given youth only the odd couple of minutes - when has he played a few of the younger lads meaningfully Pod? - finally my blinkers will remain on like it or not mate until he’s gone

[/QUOTE]

Think this one for me.

Exactly, I don't think he has. There's quite a few that would benefit from a good runout in the first team and give the regulars a wake up call. AM appears to have his own thoughts on team selection and not willing to listen to other options and consider he may not always be right. That is not the characteristics of good management.

Well Monday was a nice mixture of experienced heads and youth so I don't understand the nit picking about AM's previous comment.

Now I may be out slightly here but I think the ages of the team we put out are Jezeph 19, Burns 24, Morley 30, Wharton 23, Jones 30, Kettle 26, Powell 21, Verma 30, Taylor 25, Ricketts 19 and Knights 29.

AM put a side out that put in a decent performance and won. I'd save the 'youth' argument for when we put out an older side and lose, it's not one for after this game. Some may not want AM in charge and I'm all for knocking his decisions when we lose but it seems some people are never happy even when we win!

You don’t get in Pod it’s not about YOUTH it’s about playing OUR YOUTH - we are rightly or wrongly rebuilding our club on the youth academy and all it’s associated teams and AM will not take a chance with any of them unless in a forced situation - Kettle and Whaton should not have been brought in when we had Ricketts and likes of Shaw - they have to be given a chance - Shaw did ok away at Brackley. Ezewele when given his very rare outings has also done ok especially away against Gloucester last season but pushed out on loan like Jed D. Know fans will be more forgiving if youngsters given a chance as we really do need OUR youth to be seen to work or what’s the    point of some much time, effort money and that 🚌 given over to them. We beat Scum so what they were pitiful - we are going nowhere this season so at least if going nowhere it’s better that we push OUR YOUTH - or what’s the point mate

The words used youth/under 21 team gives you a clue on what's needed. Rickets was the only player from our under 21 team. He hasn't got an "older" team to put out. Do you think he has another team of older players in a cupboard somewhere that he saves to confirm your opinion.

I'd hazard a guess the u21 players just aren't good enough to make the step up in AM's eyes. What's the old saying thrown around football; if you're good enough you're old enough? To be fair the academy hasn't been going long and I for one wouldn't expect to unearth a load of diamonds just yet.

There’s the RUBB mate - that’s the same 👀 that picks the worst player I’ve seen play so many games for us on such a regular basis Morley - and the same 👀 that’s reduced our away team coach from almost full till now a little mini bus at best - don’t forget Pod these are all long term fans who have followed us home and away for up to 40 years - sometimes 👀 but also feet when they walk away - so not only me that where the blinkers on hum.

Have you seen any of the under 21 games? They have some pretty decent players. And as you said if you're good enough you're old enough.
What has AM got to loose, oh that's right the games we should have been winning. The problem I have with AM is his blinkered view of the playing staff he has available to him. It appears he only makes changes when forced into a corner. You can see him when we are not going well. He's like a rabbit in a cars headlights thinking what am I going to do, what am I going to do. He needs to think outside the box. Use some of the talent he has.

I haven't to be honest. I've struggled to attend the home games with the first team this season let alone any other. You can only assume AM doesn't think they're ready yet.

To be fair to AM there's plenty of managers at a higher level who are reactive just like him; those that appear to only make forced changes and at the last minute rather than be proactive and as you say 'think outside the box'. With all respect to AM and the club, if he haf true tactical nous he'd be managing at a higher level. I don't expect to see the next Pep Guardiola in our dugout any time soon.

Well back to being serious for now at least.
Great performance against the Scum on New Year’s Day. Full credit to AM for being able to raise the team up after a Xmas stuffing with very little time and no game in between, particularly as the scum went on the attack straight away, which could have made us wobble. A great workman like team performance not going over the top, as it’s Boston on Saturday and the same is required again, to start the move back up the table.

Come on you Lambs
