A pretty miserable day. Half a team and seemingly more injuries sustained to the regulars. Got drunk. Trains canceled post-match, pretty much summed things up. Shared a taxi with Daz all the way back to Birmingham New Street! Add to that the now obligatory one hour wait for a taxi home from Telford Central and it was of those days when you look back and question your own state of mind.
On the plus side. I thought Quba gave a solid display, (before going off - presumably injured), and the new lad in the middle showed some nice touches. Negatives, we need a forward or two!
I genuinely feel for the Gaffer right now. He must have ran over a cat or something. It feels like an eternity since we played a full strength side in a competitive game. I think now it would actually benefit everyone just to get up and running. I remain confident, I also maintain it's going to take most sides some time to evaluate where they are at.
Let's go!

I can fully sympathize with rwakeley and his frustration. I must say I thought it an ill conceived decision to play a friendly match with a team in the West Midlands, a 250 mile journey and a Six hour round trip. When the playing budget is so tight?

The reduced potency of the team through injury unavoidable, but more easily coped with if the opposition were within say 50 miles, of NW 9.

In hindsight I think everyone would agree that the decision was perhaps unwise. I think the initial idea was for the players to enjoy a night out in Birmingham after the game and do some squad bonding, but since we ended up with just 14 men on the day, two of whom got injured, another of whom was probably underage, and a further three haven't put pen to paper, that certainly didn't happen.

Hopefully lessons have been learned for next year.

Speaking to Kate in the bar afterwards, she seemed confident that some of those missing would be alright for Truro - let's hope so.
