unfortunately had to work all weekend and its the first game ive missed. cant access the highligts atm. out of interest which area of the pitch did their goals come from ? left, right or middle.
The first was a header back through the middle. Second came from a free kick in our left back area and the third was also a foul from Nicholson in the left back area. The fourth was a breakaway through the middle after a Nicholson cross and the fifth was a quality lob hit from the left hand side of our area.
If you were being very harsh then Nico did have a hand in three of their goals....
The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him.
thank you. i was just wondering because i rememeber reading a few posts recently when oastler was getting some stick for the goals coming from the right hand side. i suppose it depends which side the tricky winger is. somehow i think nicholson gets away more lightly with it because of his popularity with certain groups of fans !!
They didnt seem too interested in trying to get down the left wing so Joe had an easier time than against Cheltenham or Rotherham where he was getting a bit of a roasting. What also helps Nico is that Robbo is regularly covering out to the LB position when Nico get passed by the opposition. He did it at least 6 times in the 1st half Saturday (and at least the same against Rotherham) and it doesnt exactly help with picking up players in the middle if Robbo is out there (also makes it look like he's being pulled all over the pitch). Whilst I can see the positives in having Nico in the team (not that his dead ball delivery seems a patch on last season), surely with the need to beef up the defence, the strength and pace of LRT should be tried?
