Well done boys, couldn't make it today but what a key three points this might prove to be. Feeling very positive tonight :-)
This win could be crucial for the whole season and future. Any neutral watching must have wondered how on earth Merthyr didn’t get something from the match. Resilience by Hendon throughout, great goalkeeping and a very impressive attacking phase in the second quarter of the match gave the answer. Quite simply, a great victory.
Re: Pivotal moment?
Getting acquainted with the manager - at least in a footballing context already being portrayed. I think this lad could be rather interesting. Back to my previous headline, differences and all that. Last visit 2 weeks ago, Tivvie, 8 changes on the comparable starting XI's. Today we won 2-1. On paper, I thought the line-up looked compelling. Impressed with the defence today. The link-up between the lad Howe and Sean. The lad Howe, What a tantalising proposition that lad is? Impressed with the lad Tom at CH. Commanding in the air combined with solid distribution. Looks dependable. Already, I reckon this gaffer has shown his hand. A nice mix of young vibrant talent, coupled with experienced heads. Already, he has made some interesting short-term additions, albiet we now will shortly find ourselves in due course having to deviate in order to consolidate. Nonetheless, an interesting insight.
Where the lad Oshodi, (appears to be quite versatile), fits in - who knows. Looks another decent proposition. Personally, I keep banging that drum for a Corks role as a counter-balance. The lad Eshun reminds me of a youthful Marvin Morgan. The latter had difficulty in leaving the ground despite his size. Questions all over the place will no doubt be covered in due course. The intracacies of through balls vs holding up. The lad faced the Yak today - Interesting viewing. Yes, I have watched the old man over on the St Albans site and again, similar tones to some degree. I think both these Allinson lads are very bright. Must be something in the gene-pool. Snr, citing players of similar characteristics in his interview tonight. We have in the past tried plenty of these types for a handful of games. No more cross-references from me. Doing them both a dis-service.
I like this lads, team selections to date. I get the sense, somewhere down the road, once up and running, a real indominable mentality could take hold. Plenty to admire already with regards to the work undertaken.
Lots of credit all round. Plenty to go at. Enjoy.
Get in there!!! Finally a ten out of ten from Dessie! Frankly, I think I've earnt it!
And what do you mean - about bloody time? You're the one issuing the scores!
You can issue a ten as often as you like!
And precisely what the hell was that the other week! Giving me, Yes me, a four out of ten!
Really a four! My rugged jawline and swimmers build alone contributes at least four - that's before we get down to sacking the manager.
One point of reference. Had that four been issued against my post-match Staines poem from a few years back - It would have been all out war! You can't mark that. It was outside the Venn Diagram almost too good. That's thinking outside the box - Which ironically on the day Hendon showed a distinct lack of!
What the hell - from that poem
My pre-match ritual see's Sophey make me a baguette
Highlight of the day until Casey finds the back of the net (Instant Classic)
The gaffer popped by for an introductory chat
I mumbled something incoherently. He must think I'm a prat!
Your absolutely right - I cover the real issues - I walk where angels fear to tread - Nothing left to achieve
Just like at school, when I marked my own homework! I've set the standards!
Hate to say it Rob, I think this post is likely to gain a chunky 0...
I worked out the marking scheme pretty early on.
