    The Lounge

    I’ve decided to spruce up the web-site a wee bit (even with our new logo – any comments?). Another new feature is the single thread forum, so you can jump on and have your say, ask a question or just read what is being said. As I always say the forum is only as strong as what you make of it, so I would urge you to contribute and regularly to keep it all worthwhile. BTW, if you want to check something in the old forum it is now archived and the link is below… Okay let’s hear from you …

    I was at the game yesterday (unfortunately). Opinion seems divided – were we rubbish for the whole game or only in the second half? I’m afraid I am in the former camp. Had lots of possession in the first half but absolutely no cutting edge. Apart from a very short spell in the second half just before they got the second goal, we were awful. It was so bad Ardley had to put Barnett on with 10 minutes left. Totally agree with Singapore that it was impossible to find a MotM candidate. I think Will Nightingale got it because he played OK for the first 15 minutes.
    There had been a fear that the Fleetwood game would be a let down after the joy of the win over Franchise, but after a good performance up there, this was maybe the inevitable come down from that great night.
    Ardley’s job now is to find a way to motivate the players when there is not much to play for other than securing a few more points to make survival a certainty. Personally my aim would be to see us finish above the scum.

    Looks like I picked a bad match to come back after 3 weeks on holiday! :o(

    Very poor performance, but sadly a typical match up of mid-table ‘also ran’s versus a team battling to get into the playoffs. We couldn’t match them for desire or commitment. They also had the quality of Nile Ranger and Simon Cox up top and Anton Ferdinand at the back – players of a quality that we are simply not in the running to sign.

    IMO we looked dangerous and capable of scoring up until the point that we allowed Ranger to squirm through about 5 tackles slot a shot past James Shea. From then on, it was a little like boys against men and we lost our way.

    Sadly the BBC stats summed up the tie: AFCW – 10 shots, 0 on target; Shrimpers – 7 shots, 6 on target.

    Let’s hope we don’t get a repeat performance on Tuesday…

    Anyone not at KM was spared the worst of afternoons. Out-thought, out-fought, out-muscled, out-played, out-everything, we were dire. Slow, sloppy, woeful ,worst we’ve played this season. Just rubbish. How Will Nightingale was voted man of the match is beyond me. Both goals came through him or from his giving the ball away. But then the whole team spent all afternoon giving the ball away and not battling for second balls. There was no man of the match for me. Not a single outfield player impressed. It was a match and a day to forget. The team were embarrassingly poor, and owe us a performance on Tuesday night to bury the memory of today’s horror show.

    Maybe we have a quota against the Cods?

    Rob. Thanks for posting those stats. I had no idea we had such an impressive record against the Cods. I’ll slightly disappointed now that we didn’t steal all three points.

    Dave K and myself were at Fleetwood yesterday representing WDSA. It was a pretty good performance. Credit to the players for getting on with the job after the excitement of Tuesday.
    Was pretty even for the first 70 minutes. Shea made his customary great save early on but after that neither team created much. LTB came on late and in the last 20 minutes it was all Dons with Barcham missing a couple of good chances.
    Have to be pretty happy with a point at a promotion chasing team, though.
