    Might just join you Fulhamphoenix : ). Two good days of dry sunny weather forecast Thursday and Friday including Saturday morning so fingers crossed no need for an inspection of pitch. What cruisers you venturing into?

    We just taking the one supporters coach? If so, that’s a surprise as expected maybe two at least. But, with YCFC in close proximity, I guess a lot will be making there own way there.

    For a neutral (count me 100% non-neutral!), it must have been a bit of a non-descript game apart from another solo bit of genius from Wright and a well positioned nod-in from Beck.

    York were never in it - i can only believe they must have a few injuries to offer such an inept performance in their first home derby against Town.

    Having said that our defence was in full control and our midfield harried for the full 90 but without offering much danger.

    That's my beer-besmirched view anyway ! Just a pity Gainsborough couldn't do us a favour - i guess they went mighty close ..... I still feel auto promotion is ours if we win our last 4 - a big ask but not impossible - i'm wondering if our best hope for a Salford slip-up is their away fixture at Nuneaton who gave us a tough time.

    Still all to play for !

    What a poor footballing 1st 45 mins with the ball in the air too much but the 2nd half we showed that big desire to win . Well done to Jake Wright for his effort and goal to get us going. Thought Beck did very well when he came on but missed an absolute sitter in front of goal. Leesley made a terrific cross for Becks goal but was still way off form generally. The 2 c/backs had their best game together. Thompson worked hard but was not involved much as an attacking force. Jack and Josh had a hard time controlling midfield in 1st half but slowly got better in the 2nd.
    Hope Wright’s head injury isn’t too bad. Salford ruined my day by scoring in 1st half injury time- We need to just keep winning and hope they slip up. Finally i thought the ref had a good game because I’m sure some refs would have booked quite a few unnecessarily in a game that had it’s lively tackles.

    Garage, I reckon Grey instructed his team to play things in the air to restrict us from playing, and hope for a mistake from our defence. You saw the difference in the 2nd half when Wright’y scored a brilliant goal. We then got a grip as they were forced to come at us, got to say our defending was superb. By coming at us, it opened up the game and was thoroughly enjoyable. Becky’s header was a screamer! Well done boys. My thinking is if we win our final x4 games, we’ll be Champions :-).

    The two are correlated think GT sees the danger and fills in sacrificing himself as an attacking force for the team if required still involved in setting up 1st goal
    Overall I agree desire over quality football but I think Salford would have expected a slip up for us so by not doing so we have heaped more pressure on them - or that is what my beer is telling me

    Are you saying Grey made us play the ball in the air? Because 1st half we did not try to play on the floor.

    No. I meant he instructed ‘his’ team to keep it in the air. We aren’t the biggest team in the world, so was probably hoping we’d mAybe lose a ball in the air and they’d capitalise.Weneednt worry as Jack + Josh are too good a pairing to worry about that. Class is permanent, andcream alwayscomes to the top. Regards GT, been a class act/signing. Well done SW for getting him.

    The first half was very poor from both teams very little football played on the deck.  We got off to a good start second half with a very well taken goal by the young lad.  Beck was very good when he came on, made it difficult for their defenders and took his goal very well, did miss a sitter!  Our defenders were excellent second half and really York never looked liked scoring, Belshaw immaculate as usual.  Getting very tight at the top, we have to win all our games and hope that Salford drop points, Brackley not out of it either.
