Sounded shaky at the back at times but we are now a threat where it matters and seem to be capable of recovering from being behind. We haven't been able to do that for some time an Really pleased for JR Its finally working out for him and credit to the lad for working so hard to improve. The improved quality in the squad has made all of the difference we are fortunate to have the young talent on board - for the time being at least. Didn't see or hear what happened to Sendles-White as I thought I read he was on the team sheet.
My education started when I left Highweek School for boys..
The new found confidence in this club is plain to see,what a transformation under the new gaffer is unbelievable, teams now will b taking notice of us, this could b the start of something special and bring them smiles bk to plainmoor,
link - quite a nice video of players celebrating with the fans.
What a difference in both the atmosphere and morale from just 5 games into the Johnson era where 4 games have been won and the one drawn game felt like a win after coming from 2-0 down.
That initial desire to impress the new respected manager together with a change in tactics has transformed the team to inject new confidence, desire and unity although coupled with an infusion of new players to address the weaknesses apparent in a side that just not looked like they could score unless the ball fell kindly for them. Reidy is like a new player with the chances he is now getting and now just needs a strike partner to step up and do the same as they hunt best in pairs!
Although Owers initially brought in Andrews and Edwards, they, combined with the addition of Lemonheigh-Evans have transformed the midfield area to create those chances and there are now a lot of options up front even with 4 strikers generally getting a run out in most games and the 5 on the pitch yesterday including one loan player probably have enough between them to get us the goals needed this season.
The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him.
Wonder what the record is for scoring in the most consecutive games for TUFC?
I'm sure it was Carl Airey at one point, scoring in 6 games on the bounce.
Sam Collins scored in 7 consecutive games in 1954/55 (the season we dumped Leeds United out of the FA Cup 4-0 at Plainmoor).
The legendary Robin Stubbs I don't think ever managed scoring 6 games in a row, but 10 years later in 1964/65 he did score in 10 of 11 consecutive league and FA Cup games, netting 16 times (that was a notable FA Cup year as well - 3-3 at home to the mighty Tottenham Hotspur in the 3rd round).
Perhaps Reid's exploits this season may also coincide with a notable FA Cup run (and top of the table promotion as well)?
