    Scarborough at home

    Post by GARAGE on Wed Jul 25, 2018 7:24 am

    Back down with a big bump last night against a good team-they looked every bit as fit as us and looked sharper with Walshaw getting his usual goal-the mixed team we put out proved that we need to be at full strength to survive in our new league-
    I’m still not convinced about Williams and Stewart possibly needs to be out wide as per his 1st appearance where he looked good-the trialist started brightly then slowly dissapeared and did not have any movement in him so he’s not for me- Langmead is struggling at present but must get better- finally our keeper tends to kick the ball out as far as he can giving possession away instead of passing out from the back which suits our game more.

    Good assessment Garage. I think Williams will definately benefit at the side of the more physical Beck. Yes Langmead looked a bit rusty, but could benefit if he plays alongside Burrell who is a Rolls Royce. But, the Manager may start with Howe and Burrell. I’m hoping Leesley gets a run out on Saturday as he will be needed against Sutton Utd. Anyway, all the best lads down Wales, unfortunately I can’t make it.

    The brilliant start to last season was helped by the good performances in challenging matches against Hartlepool and Gateshead. It is hard to see that the pre-season's fixtures and team selections this time are doing much to prepare us for a match against probably the best team in the National League. After the Bradford City shambles I was expecting to see the likely starting line up against Sutton play at least the first 60 minutes against Scarborough.

    Friendlies can be hit and miss as a guide. Son in law said the Pirates performance was not great at all (lack of team play, leggy) especially with games running out to put out a settled XI. The fixtures have not helped - poor quality, lack of game time on grass, lack of appetite for better sides to come and play at Town on the plastic stuff. Not great way to set up for some very testing fixtures to come.
    Let's hope we don't revert to the previous 8 seasons or so of under achievement - something likely given we are not able to outspend teams to secure mid table positions like in the past.
    And remember we have a manager who would have been out the door 3 or 4 times over had it been a normal club set up! No chance to learn on the go at this level.
    What is the issue with Leesley btw? Has obviously been kicking a ball around but not featured yet.

    Believe Leesley injured in training so they probably making sure he’s fully fit and no reacurance occurs.
