    The longer an attack takes the better the opposition can defend ...

    ... my Sunday League manager bored us to death, in training, but it all clicked into place when we found ourselves 3 against 2 time after time on match day.

    Decent half but we should be 2 up at least on the run of play.

    Good first half. We look loads more mobile in attacking areas and a real threat from Embleton. Gooch not really in the game much with the exception of the through ball so more to come second half.

    On that 45mins I'd say, same team Saturday lads.

    cheers again RTB....

    well, once again a bit of a different team out there, some nice inter - play and touches...let ourselves down a wee bit with some of the long balls and end product but plenty of chances created and fighting hard to win the ball back, Vale look like they only need that right ball into the box and that Amoo looks like he could be dangerous.

    o'brien looking good, linking play well and picking the ball up far better than wyke or grigg have managed, gooch back to his terrier - like best...hopefully more goals 2nd half, almost been a pleasure to watch, for a change ;)

    I saw that, out of the corner of my eye, and hadn't a clue who he was, honestly.

    He looks like someone, from off the street, replacing a linesman.

    I'm texting Mag family and they've gone a bit quiet <laugh>

    indeed - but there's putting him up for sale and there's risking Grant rather than putting him on. Feels to me like his departure is more advanced than we'd hoped...

    We must go all out for the 2nd goal as we dont want any penalty shoot outs aginst this keeper. Leadbitter on for Neil who picked up an injury.

    Two stupid yellow cards in quick succession. No VAR needed for those.
