    21 hours to go. That familiar mix of anticipation and fest has already set in. I really believe we can do this, we are good enough. Players must believe in themselves, you are good enough lads.

    Really looking forward to the match.They have the leagues joint top scorer in Danny Rowe,real class but in Brendon we also have a guy who can score from just about anywhere.Should be a real classic.
    It will all come down to who can handle the pressure.I'm confident with the players we have on board we can go all the way...We will Cool Cool
    Seems it comes down to who as the biggest balls will win ...We have just signed Buster Gonad..

    If we can replicate the Solihull performance then anything is possible. Just hope we turn up and give it a right good go, ideally put enough goals past them that it puts their heads down and nullifies home support for second leg.

    We will either be on cloud nine, distraught or moaning about missed chances. God, I hope it's the first!

    Awful bloody ref, possibly the worse yet....where the hell do we get them from?

    One lapse for their goal, Crook kept us in it and we wasted some good chances!! It aint over, we need to go to Fylde now and play like we have never played before.

    well the better side won but we had quite a few chances to score. How it did not go in the goal for us i don't know. When will we go back to playing on the ground. The crowd was bigger than anounced it surely was around  2000 plus. Different tactics needed on Sunday especially Daniels who needs to start playing for the team and do some work.

    Shouldn't post in the aftermath but feck it....that was hopeless. Yes the ref wasn't great but we were woeful on many fronts.

    Crooky stopped us having a proper drubbing - perhaps the only redeeming factor tonight.

    Three elements for me tonight.

    Swain is not a left back or a footballer at this level. Railway possibly but has been obvious for much of the season that he is not agile enough and lacks basic technical abilities to start in a team at this level.

    Forwards.....To be fair, Clayton did well as a target tonight but no shots to note let alone goals but why the hell was he taken off and replaced by Knowles.......who is utter garbage. It was mental by Simon. Knowles has done naff all most of the season so why bring him on? Suppose the impact of the total let down that to the club that Hearn was. I hope to never see Knowles play in a town shirt again. Shave ya beard son and knuckle down, in the Evo Stick.

    Did we actually have any shots on target of meaning after the first 4 minutes? So a problem that has utterly been failed to be rectified all season that has predictably done for us. They took us apart for most of the match and to contemplate an away victory on that load of shite is a leap of imagination and faith too far.

    lastly, Daniels - if he is going football league next season he needs to play a damn sight better than that. Let us all down big time. Swains lack of support wont have helped but he was absent on the pitch tonight.

    Most of them were a let down to the great turn out by the town tonight from the guile and attacking non-threat on the pitch to the questionable in-game tactics (their left back was there for the taking but didn't pose a threat out wide after the first 10mins - was fecking obvious, did Simon not see it??) and as for the subs, maybe was a result of the lack of talent and options up front but to summarise, found out tonight. We have finished where we should given the playing budget and come up short when it mattered most, especially in front of so many floating fans who ventured down tonight.

    I'm sorry but I'd just like to mention something about Knowles, he has been injured for a lot of the season and has only just started coming back in to it now..he's actually out top goalscorer out of all the strikers this season!!! He looked very lively today when he came on. Why Weaver put Emmett upfront I'll never know! He's a winger!!!

    The only way I can see us possibly hurting Fylde is if we play 433 and play Clayts in the middle with Emmett and Thewlis on the wings high up the pitch....But that means the guys in the middle need to work their backsides off............Wouldn't touch Knowles with a barge poll now, he is just a passenger, picking up top dollar for doing bugger all and he probably knows he is on his way out.

    Ah Trev I cannot say how annoying it is, when we do get folk down this happens. Was a brilliant build up to see the place buzzing. That said is testament to the club progressing bigger picture, just a shame for the spectacle. Hopefully little by little folk will come back.

    Maybe need to wake up tomorrow and feel better about it but just seems a double whammy of wasted opportunity right now with the performance not doing our season or the teams ability justice.

    Not sure what to make of it all. Agree with some of the points, certainly didn't get a lot of change from the ref, ball in the air to much and just lacked the killer pass. Danny Rowe got a goal, man marked Ellis on set pieces and looked very dangerous. Daniels didn't get a lot of help plus flyde hunted in packs around him when he did get the ball.
    I'm cursing missed chances again and we just didn't work the ball into the danger area well enough. Few overlapping runs, Clayts did well to hold it up and flick ons. Another thing we could work on is a long throw in when the opportunity arises.
    On a plus side, it's only 1-0, plus massive support so got to do a job on them at flyde. And someone needs to Velcro themselves to Rowe. Nothing to lose now, got to go for it and need a shift out of everyone!

    When and for how long? He has been on the bench most of the last few months. One moment typified him.....could have carried on towards the left hand side of the goal and got a shot away, then cut back outwide to then put a hapless cross in that sailed over everyone's head. Does he shoot anymore? What does he do? If he was playing like our leading goalscorer why does Weaver not pick him....think the clue is in his impact this season, a let down.

    As for coming back into it when and how what match has he shown that? Come on he is garbage and part of the problem in the team that has been there all season.

    He bought Emmett on as even as a winger he is a better goalscoring option. The Clayton substitution was a big mistake.

    Got to roll the dice though. Thewlis off injured, 1-0 down, not a lot of penetration and not creating clear cut chances. SW made a bold move to change the nature of attacking options. Can only use the bench you've got, Burrell gave us a bit more forward movement but flyde always looked dangerous breaking out and I can see more of that on Sunday.

    The tactics were thoroughly depressing tonight. Time after time just hitting a long ball up to Clayton with no success. We were outplayed by a team that actually aren't that good.

    As said above, it's a shame that whenever the team plays in front of a big crowd of potential fans they play terrible quality football when we know they are capable of so much better. Whether that was Weavers tactics or the players who knows. It didn't change much in the second half.

    Daniels was marked out of the game. Whilst he's an exciting player for us, I honestly can't see him at a higher level as he just can't beat a player - he needs a lot of space and then he's dangerous but when he doesn't get it he's ineffective....and he won't get it in the league!

    They can still do it on Sunday - I honestly believe we're a better team - but they need to get the ball on the floor and out wide and start taking chances.

    ...on the plus side, Crook had an excellent game and thoroughly deserved his man of the match. Also it's still only one goal down when it really should have been more

    Agreed that Crooks kept us in it. Just as well he didn't trim his finger nails as a couple of those saves were top drawer and if we do something special at flyde then it'll be based on his performance tonight.

    Agree with most of this, I'm feeling depressed but we still have a chance, albeit slight. Why do we always let big crowds down?
