As you might expect from previous postings, mixed feelings on my part.
Firstly, congratulations to Mr Ling for having bought into the modern way of playing football and thus getting us into the top two with only ten games remaining. Scoring the first goal and then hanging on to that lead for dear life certainly seems to be working, thanks to a top class goalkeeper. Results are clearly everything, never mind what the performance looks like.
However, with promotion to League One now looking to be a distinct possibility, larger attendances will undoubtedly be required in order to fund the signing of better players. Does anyone really believe that dormant supporters will be attracted to come and watch game after game in which such defensive and negative tactics are employed ?
that does not represent what I see. I see a return to the Leroy days of playing creative football on the ground with a spine of steel.
A combination of boring defensive Macfarlane and creative footballing Leroy.
the best of both worlds
Thank-you Mr Ling (ex-cambridge manager )
Wasnt McFarlane (Andy) a striker ?
Or did you mean Roy MacFarland, the "no-nonsense" defender ? ;D
