  3. Had to be Sonny Carey after his two performances against us. Played well in the reverse fixture against us and again last night. Exactly the sort of player we should be signing. Young, hungry, energetic and has got something about him. Can't rely on aging pros forever
  4. Slocombe 7 - Without his saves, KLT would have won it before half time Kelly-Evans 5 - Got forward to support but his end product was poor Rawlinson 6 - Headed everything as usual but my heart skipped a beat when he tried pretty much score an own goal Lacey 4 - I remember a moment in the first half when a long ball was dropping near him, he was right next to it and he just let his man get in front of him to control it. Looks knackered Barnett 4 - Gets forward but scares me defensively Enzio 4 - Poor decision making blighted any good moves he made with the ball Reeves 4 - Nowhere near consistent enough with his forward runs. When he did get forward he contributed to the first goal but so frustrating. Doyle 3 - Had a shocker. Gave the ball away far too many times and lacked any sort of energy to have an impact on the game Rodrigues 5 - Tried to get involved but looks pretty tired Knowles 7 - Plenty of energy and industry and pressing Wootton 8 - No idea where we'd be without him. Subs - N/A Performances MUST pick up. Weymouth, Stockport, Chesterfield and both KLT games have been poor performances. We lack energy, pace, decision making, an in game mentality to win at all costs and ruthlessness.

  8. The manner of the defeat is so annoying. We just didn't look bothered at all. It was like they accepted it after going a goal down. Our lack of urgency and creativity lost us any chance of getting anything from the game. Annoys me how we can go on a good run of form and then just produce a performance like that. Happened with Boreham Wood at home earlier in the season. Won against Chesterfield and Wealdstone, drew to Dagenham and then won against Woking, then just played poor against Wood. Beat Stockport the week after, so it makes you think why did we play so poor the previous week, when we know we have the ability to play well consistently. Seriously need to get this goals for tally up. 26 in 20 games isn't good enough for a team wanting to win promotion. The Wealdstone, Dagenham, Barnet and Altrincham performances show how good we can be infront of goal. Solihull last 20 as well. Go again Tuesday

  11. It was quite an eventful cup tie and one Notts made hard work of. Havant, to their credit, pressed us well and had good energy levels despite not playing for a while. Notts got it down the wings quite a few times in the first half and it was our best opportunity of opening Havant up. It worked for the first goal and we got in numerous times down both flanks but they came to nothing. Chicksen could've had two before half time. His 2nd effort really should have ended in a goal. Poor connection with the ball after taking a touch and then trying to lob the keeper after a good ball from Lacey. Miller should've also scored when he was in acres of space and somehow took about 250 years to shoot. I didn't think Jim O'Brien had a good game. Lost the ball too much and when there was space to go into, he passed backwards. Matty Wolfe's runs from deep helped us and that's what one of the centre midfielders (whoever starts) should be doing more. Jimmy Knowles put himself about and his run contributed to the first goal and then he scored the penalty to equalise. The back four had a difficult time. Lacey and Turner, in my opinion, looked uncomfortable on occasions and Turner had a difficult time with Tommy Wright. Didn't help that no Notts players bothered tackling any Havant player in the second half and were happy to let them run forward with the ball. Rodrigues was good when he came on and got Notts on the front foot again, bringing the ball forward and drawing fouls. The second of them free-kicks won us the penalty. However he does need to learn how to shoot in the 18 yard box and not dribble past everyone. Nothing much to say on Jordan Barnett as he had a quiet game. Looks like he's got a decent left foot on him. Luke Pilling
  12. That knee injury completely ruined his time at Notts. Didn't help that he came in during the time where we had about 882 players on the books and chaos was well and truly under way

  15. Slocombe 8 - Critical saves at vital points. Man of the match Kelly-Evans 6 - Got forward like he always does. His usual solid self Rawlinson 7 - Good distribution and won everything Lacey 6 - Too many passes went astray in the first half but resilient defending Miller 7 - Always got forward when the opportunity presented itself. Attacking threat adds another piece to the puzzle Doyle 5 - Nearly cost us it all with a stupid pass to Weymouth in our own half. Grafted Reeves 6 - Too many backwards passes again when there was a good option on further forward. Comfortable on the ball Boldewijn 6 - Good running in the first half and a few opportunities came down his side Rodrigues 6 - Work rate was again very good and was picking up space early on Sam 7 - May have had a slice of luck for the goal but it came from running at the opposition which is good to see. Linked the play nicely Wootton 6 - Battled away but nothing came for him O'Brien 5 - Ran about when he came on. Did what he needed to do Effiong 5 - Like O'Brien, closed out the game for Notts

  17. There's quite a few things to make us more clinical in the final third. Firstly, there's the amount of players we commit forward. The sitting midfield two of Reeves and Doyle are fine for controlling possession but neither get forward enough consistently to support the front four. Reeves has done this on occasions this season (Alty, Barnet, Stockport), but hasn't done it enough (he was basically camped in his own half against Woking). I've brought this up before. Hartlepool away last season. They attacked in 6's and 7's going forward. Meanwhile, we had, at most, 4 forward when attacking. Press the opposition back, giving them more to think about as there is more players forward. This also gives us more options to pass to in the final third which means a higher chance of putting a chance away. One of the strikers or attacking players can also come deep for the ball to help link up the play. Secondly, we need to defeat the high press. We did this excellently against Stockport and have got better at it with time. Moving the ball quickly into space, getting the ball out of our feet and releasing it quicker. If it's in the centre, play it to a centre half or wing back and move. Once we have released it to a teammate, we need to move and make runs to draw opposition players out of position, to create space for other players. Getting the ball out of our feet and moving it quicker is huge. Too many times, we have taken too many touches when we didn't need to (Reeves and Ruben vs Torquay e.g.). Doing this can speed up the play and help us progress quicker up the pitch. We need to give our attacking players more freedom. Let them roam free from their normal position and try and make things happen. Believe in their ability to make things happen. Enzio and Shields did this last season at Halifax. Both hugged the touchline so they had a better chance of receiving the ball and it helped us stretch Halifax and we completely outplayed them. The importance to this is, if the opposition win the ball and counter, we must either press them back again or quickly retain our shape best we can.

  19. Slocombe 6 - Commanded well. Had one iffy moment but sound Brindley 7 - Kept Whitfield quiet for large parts of the game. Great performance Rawlinson 7 - Excellent defending and very cool with the ball at his feet Lacey 7 - Like Rawlo, kept their usually potent frontline at bay Kelly-Evans 7 - Got forward numerous times and linked up well with others Doyle 8 - Superb with the ball at his feet and helped us playing through the middle Reeves 7 - Started well but takes way way too many touches when he doesn't need to and passes it backwards when he doesn't need too Boldewijn 5 - Lost the ball too many times and his decision making was a bit erratic. A few good runs forward Rodrigues 7 - Continues to be a brilliant performer. So much went through him. But please just shoot more Effiong 7 - Grafted and gave Kyle Cameron nightmares in the 1st half. Wootton 5 - Positioning wasn't great but did what he could. How he hasn't scored that late on I will never know. It's unmissable Sam 6 - Linked the play up nicely when he came on and put two inviting crosses into the box O'Brien 5 - Didn't really do much when he came on but set up a great chance late on for Kyle Miller N/A - Subbed for Brindley late on

  21. After not playing for a while I think it was important we got back up to speed and got minutes in the legs. Also important to get into the habit of winning as it breeds confidence and can help get you going on a good run of form (Chesterfield in the trophy last season helped with this). We also did look a bit leggy at times but that's not surprising due to us not playing for a while. However, at times we moved the ball too slowly. This is something that annoys me as I see other teams' players take a touch and pass it on, getting it out of their feet and playing a pass quickly. We are patient with our build up play, but at times it doesn't go anywhere. Need to start getting more numbers forward, taking risks and being brave, making runs and playing clinical passes in behind. Positives included Knowles who pressed well and got himself a goal but tired late on. Ruben was class once again and Wolfe was good with his passing and bringing the ball forward, something we've lacked in midfield all too often.
