Hendon are doing my head in - Big Time.
They should have got in their taxis and gone back to Kent with three points. Credit to the boys for salvaging a point. On the day, I thought Casey was out-standing. I got back to the pub early, last 20 mins of the Liverpool game, first line I heard, apparently they can't take corners!!! Another comparison!
These last ditch goals, I've long come to the conclusion this is systematic of our style of play. And whilst beneficial, I'm not convinced that this is beneficial in underlying acquiesce.
That makes me sound a sod, I don't care. I get where we are, I get the injury list longer than the M1 and the budget. I love these lads, the Gaffer and all. It's just my opinion. I rarely slate anybody - no ulterior motive - I'm no expert - but in the best interests of the season, I do worry if we can carry over the line exhibiting these characteristics. I would sacrificed these games for a 1-0 win. The question I ask is are we capable of that?
The stats so far suggest we are as far as removed from that as is humanly possible.
I saw their left back advance today, and already it reminded me of what The Tanners equivalent did to us last season.
I sat at my screen on Saturday expecting Needham to draw close just as much as I half expected us to grab something today - reality 2 points out of 6. Injuries, budgets, mercury in retrograde aside, tactically are we getting the most? There are legitimate concerns - good ones - play-offs not relegation.
I want these lads to reach their potential.
