We played some great stuff, Harry was everywhere, Stones could not handle our movement and pace, we simply cut them to ribbons in that 1st half.
2 reasons I can see why we didn't win 10-3 is that defensively it only took Stones half a dozen chances to score 3 times, that is too expensive on our part. Attacking wise we got to the door so many times and lacked what they call composure. Putting the ball in the net is just another pass. Easy for me to say I know, but you could see us panic on the final shot as much as they panicked defending it.
Mind you great to get that equalizer at the end, Eastie did show composure...
Last year in the Autumn we were playing reasonably well and losing (being unlucky??) whereas this autumn we are playing well and getting results/picking up points. Presumably the sign of a stronger and more confident team?
I daresay we will hit a bad patch at some point during the 44 game season (of course we are less than a quarter of the way thru) and when that point (inevitably) comes, if the team can still grind out wins/pick up draws/ battle for the unlikely points against the odds, we will be in good shape come April and may even have a PO spot to fight for.
IMO we need one of our strikers to have a 20+ goal season. Olaofe seems the most likely if he stays with us but its great to see that we have plenty of attacking options (4 strikers plus HB and DA)
It does seem to have become a lot more difficult for goalkeepers in recent years.I think it coincides with the policy adopted by many teams nowadays in that they have to pass it around at least 37 times before getting out of their own third.
georgieboy: Brilliant result especially after travelling up on day. Well done all.

merchandiser: You guys make me laugh, have you been to many away grounds, I don't think so. When we travelled up north for most of the trophy rounds last season, you would not believe, it was like going back to the seventies.

scorpioeyes: I predicted a relegation struggle with a totally inexperienced manager. Hope I am wrong, but it doesn't look like it. MG is out of his depth,that's obvious.

ggl: So are we now saying we have a manager who is not in favour of bringing in loan players and if the board decided to part company with him they cannot afford to do so ?

historyboy: So sorry to hear about the passing of Eddie Clack. I Remember him well.

historyboy: Sad to hear of the passing of Eddie Cack, I remember him well. I think that the said photograph publishsed by the club, of him sitting next to Dave Hermitage, isn't him at all; I think the picture shows Micky Goodall. Compare other pictures of both.
