Yes great we lost by the same margin as Grimsby did at the league leaders.
And you're calling someone "dumbo"?
Don't worry about him Rob, he's just an abusive old man; the sort who would be the first out of the door if I was given a job managing a squad that was struggling.
All he knows is "idiot", "muppet", "rubbish" ~ negativity, derogatory remarks and anything he thinks can demoralise and strip people of their self confidence.
I bet his sons are fecking relieved he spends his Saturdays giving Bucks and all those opposition managers he reckons are idiots a hard time instead of embarrasing them and all I'd say to someone like him is "whilst you're here annoying me, someone could be up your missus matey"
We really should have had something from today's match. Morecambe were better early on and generally throughout the first half. Most of the trouble came down their right wing, where Smith struggled defensively. I didn't see Mullin get a touch for the goal from the far end but it was certainly poor marking from a corner (or was it a cross ?) played in low. We should have equalised when the keeper dropped a cross, Rendell turned and should have put it in the empty net from a couple of yards but hit the post, at which the ref signalled a pen. Maybe the keeper had done his homework and knew Wroe puts them right side - at Accy he did, tho' he stuck it just under the bar there and nearly missed. This time the keeper beat it away and got away with a yellow card. I'll have to see it on the FL show to see if he denied a goal-scoring opportunity. In the second half we gradually got on top and were definitely the better side, having a number of goalmouth scrambles and a couple cleared off the line. It was no surprise when they scored again at the end on a break because we were pushing forward so much, which for me falsified the score a bit. Muzzy was decent in the first half and put in some fine runs and crosses but as the game went on the second half we tended to play long balls up to Zebs and Rendell. For me two men were outstanding for us and they were Zebs and Branston. Zebs never stopped running and gave them a lot of problems with no luck. The last picture I have of him, however is getting back to clear in the left-back position and hoofing the ball away - certainly earned his money today. As for the Pickler, I take my hat off to the guy. I wasn't at all convinced we needed him when he came but I thought he was immense today, not only for his strength and bravery, which we take for granted but also for his timimg and positional play. There was one Morecambe break when we had been pushing forward and we were outnumbered at the back - Branston came across and, instead of charging in. managed to nullify two of their men by his positional sense. Perhaps just the look of him put them off ! As a realist I think Grimsby will beat Darlo and as a pessimist I think they will beat us, so we have to pick up points somewhere. I think we can beat Shrewsbury, who are on a bad run and why not scrap for something at Bury - I think they've gone off the boil too. Then there's Macc, we must win that. Then perhaps we can bust a heroic gut up at Grimsby after all - it's not finished yet !
He truly is the Village Idiot of posters Dave..................I think he's great for the site, an eighteen carat plonker of the highest order.................keeps me in stitches that's for sure. The thought of sharing a car home with him from a game, can you imagine it?
He must be priceless to sit behind at Plainmoor too!
Well, just back from one hell of a session with Mrs Chelston up the Dumpling. Todays defeat put me off my stroke and I couldn't concentrate. I will see if I have cheered up in the morning (I doubt it though).
Well some very good comments from miac. May I give you some advise? Think before you post. It's not so difficult.
According to Buckle we gave them hell today, without getting a result...
I'm looking forward to the match reports from those who went to Christie Park today and i'm anxious to read if they feel the same about the game as our manager does?
Unfortunately, it doesn't matter a jot how well we played today ... its all about getting points on the board at this stage of the season.
Exactly Crispy I couldn't give a monkeys what the performance was like its absolutely meaningless in our position. Paul Buckle has continually failed to come up with a tactic that consistently gain us points and when he does gets some success the following game he usually reverts back to type again. Clutching at tactical straws comes to mind.
