1 extra point clear, but that wasn’t good enough tonight and actually probably would've lost to another team. Luckily the other two teams lost and we’ve gained a point clear of the drop. Saturday is a MUST WIN which would probably put us near half of what we need to stay up by the halfway point and with 7 clear we can look to turning this season around.

What I will say is I do believe we need new players. Some of the players we have aren’t good as A TEAM. Collectively some cracking individuals, but together can’t produce what we need. New blood is needed and we need to recruit in the January window. New qualities and new standards. I’m fully backing Tisdale to turn it around, with the right players through the door and some the players that seem good enough in this team currently, I see a good foundation for the future. There’s good enough players in that final third and I really believe that if we had good service to our strikers we’d be a very competitive outfit, but unfortunately IMO we haven’t got what we need currently to produce. Can we do that with the same players and a new style implemented by Tisdale? Possibly. But I really do think he’ll recruit in January.

To finish, I do think we will be fine. As scary as it is being afloat above the bottom 3, I do believe we can turn this around. It might be a tough one to watch for a month or so, but eventually I think we’ll get to a position where we start to see improvement.

It's now become apparent to Tisdale the size of the task ahead.
Worrying that he talks about winning ugly though, which basically means more long ball play.

Long ball isn't ugly if it's effective. I could give a toss how we play if we win.

But playing 4-3-3 and playing long ball makes no fucking sense if the midfield don't transition. The midfield drop back and play passes with the defenders, then the defenders launch it up field to isolated strikers.

For 4-3-3 to work you HAVE to have the majority of possession, otherwise you get fleeced down the flanks OR you end up pegging two of your strikers back in wide areas (at which point you might as well play 4-5-1).

Saturday is a MUST WINSick of hearing things like this. We're shit, every match is must win.

There's good enough players in that final thirdWhat are you watching? We aren't creative, and when we do finally get creative and fashion some kind of half chance, the final ball is either shit or the striker fluffs his lines. Norris and Reid should have more goals. Listy could have more goals too.

Norris hasn't been given a fair shake of late. He is very clearly the second best striker behind List. Those two need to be playing every week unless one is unavailable.

Norris is only ever going to give you 1/3 max, that's what he's done his whole career. But if he pops up with 1/3, and List finishes the season with 15-20 goals, I'd be happy.

If List carries on as he has started (8 goals after 19 games) he would finish the season with 19 goals. I'm more than happy with that.

As I've said all season, the issue is with the midfield.

At the risk of sounding like a stuck record, we need wingers in the transfer window.

Don’t try and reinvent the wheel. Some actual wide players. 4-4-2, List and Norris up front. Daly and Reid should be good enough to swap in when needed if we’ve got a functioning midfield behind them.

After drawing last night I would suggest that on Saturday against the other bottom side we have to win. You’ve probably heard it a lot because the last 3 seasons we’ve been down to bottom haha!

I actually disagree with you Nate. I think the strikers are good enough and it’s quite clear that given good service we’d score a lot more goals than we are. The only real positive I’ve gathered from this season is the strikers are scoring goals. I think altogether the 3 of them have just surpassed 20 goals in all comps? You say could’ve scored more, I agree that possibly we should’ve hit the back of the net on a few more occasions, but considering the lack of quality behind them and the fact that our strikers have pretty much had to create their own chances, I’d say that’s probably our only positive to work with?

All comps 29 fixtures in total.
List 12 goals
Reid 4 goals
Norris 4 goals
Daly 1 goal.

21 goals in 29 games all comps is piss. List has been good, but he's spurned a good number of relatively easy chances he should have tucked away. Norris and Daly aren't pulling their weight. Reid has been a little bit unlucky as he seems to hit the woodwork on the reg, but he works hard.

I'm not a massive fan of xG, but it does paint a particular picture...
xG For / Match - 1.11
Scored / Match - 0.84

The fact is that we're not creating enough quality chances, and that from the few quality chances we create, we don't capitalise on them often enough.

Orient, who are sat in the last playoff position at the moment, are scoring 1.8 goals a game from an xG 1.35. Orient aren't a great side but their forwards are performing above expectation.

How many chances do you think List has spurned? If you think 5 or more then finishing those chances would make him the league's top scorer. While playing for a team third from bottom.

Be realistic. Strikers playing for shit teams aren't likely to be top scorers in the league. List has returned a more than fair number of goals considering the absolute garbage service he's getting.

Once again, Borochat pointing fingers at our only decent players instead of recognising the absolute fucking wank going on around them. Prosser, Coker, Wildin, Taylor, Andrade. All piss. Cuthbert, Reeves not far behind.

The only players who I dont think are totally inept are Read, List, Norris, Lines, Smith and Vancooten. Although even the latter is prone to the odd nightmare game.

List could have had a few more from chances you'd expect a professional to score from. I'm not overly upset about his output mind. Norris and co though, proper underperforming, quality of service lacking or not. They've not been good enough; just because you've decided other players are worse, doesn't automatically disqualify these lot from criticism.

I don't know why it's necessary to say it, but reading your reply perhaps it is; it's not unrealistic to expect strikers to score goals. Even ones on teams that are poor.

"Just because you've decided other players are worse, doesn't automatically disqualify these lot from criticism."

This is a fair comment, and I agree.

I just don't think that Norris' output particularly warrants criticism. He's been in and out of the team, even though he should be starting every game alongside List. I just don't think he's been given a fair crack of the whip.

My point was not that Norris doesn't deserve criticism simply because he isn't the worse player, I just think that there are other areas of the team where finding replacements is a significantly more pressing issue. In fact, I actually think that fixing the other areas of the team would yield a far better output from Norris (and in turn List).

In short, I think we have two strikers who are more than capable of being above average League Two strikers. We should be focusing on the players who should struggle to get a game in the Ryman Premier. Once we solve that problem, Norris and List will be the least of our concerns.

"I don't know why it's necessary to say it, but reading your reply perhaps it is; it's not unrealistic to expect strikers to score goals. Even ones on teams that are poor."

It is realistic to expect that, you're right. But no-one is questioning it.

I think you need to look at the teams around us. Scunthorpe's 2 top scorers both have 3 goals. Oldham's top scorers have 5 and 4. Carlisle have 3 players with 3 goals. Crawley's top scorer has 7 and the next player has 3.

Meanwhile we have List with 11 and Norris with 4.

Like I said, Norris and List are fine. If you expect a bottom 5 team to have a player with more than 11 goals, you need to readjust your expectations because you're going to be permanently disappointed.

Did he?

10 goals in 33 games is hardly 'scoring for fun'. He was good for a period, then we offered him a contract and he fucking bombed.

By comparison, Norris has 9 in 27 and List has 19 in 82 (that doesn't seem right, but it's probably because I'm only remembering his goal scoring since he started playing up front vs when he was on the wing and rarely scored).

Daly isn't pulling his weight?! The fuck are you basing that on?

If the fact he has scored once, that is because he never gets to play and the few times he did (and was our standout player) he spent most of the game defending (incredibly well) and bombing up and down the wing rather than being anything close to playing as a striker.

Reid is by far the worst of our attacking options. He gets into decent positions and has chances every match but wastes almost all of them.

To be fair to Daly he has hardly played and when he has it's been on the wing or even wing back.

I think List and Norris are adequate for this level. Confidence plays a part but so does service. When you concede so many and are at the bottom there is more pressure on strikers because they're thinking they may not get another chance or they need to score at least 2 or 3 a game to win it. That extra pressure makes it harder for some strikers.

Often the chances we do create fall to the wrong player, like playing a ball through for Norris to run onto, when you want it to be List or a cross to List's head when you want it to be Norris!

Sure - I may be a little harsh on Daly. Effort levels are high but quality, from the limited sample of what I've seen, is poor.

I think you're right about the chances often falling to the wrong player. Our positioning across the front is often dreadful, but that's absolutely coachable. We also hit the first defender with so many crosses, corners or FKs. That's as big a problem as our Strikers not being clinical.

But I actually happen to think that 21 goals in 29 from a forward line who have had utterly poor service this season is actually positive. Ask yourself this, if they had proper service week in week out do you honestly think List, Norris, Reid wouldn’t score more goals? The fact that we’re 4th bottom, out all the cups and List currently has 12 goals from 25 suggests to me that the players up top are more than capable.

It’s not all about “JUST” the strikers. Use Forest Green for example and the style they play. Look at the service Matty Stevens gets and how good he’s been, a player that couldn’t really get in our starting 11 last season is up the top for scoring goals. We’re also forgetting one thing here too, it isn’t always about the strikers scoring goals. The midfield has to also contribute throughout the season. We haven’t seen enough of that IMO. We have scored 2 goals from the midfield in 19 games, 2! Reeves and Lines to be exact and if we want to dive in deeper those 2 goals were in the first 2 games of the season. So we’ve gone for 17 straight games without the midfield contributing for 1 goal.

I really do feel that if our forward line had more support, better service, goals contributed from other areas of the pitch, we’d be climbing the table in no time.

My point is that we don't create enough, and that we've been poor at taking the few chances we have created. If we're talking about the midfield, we're in agreement.

I just disagree with what you say about our forwards. 21 goals in 29 games is not good.

Chances created start from the other two areas on the pitch, finished by the boys up top. We’re not going to score every chance and that is the same for the other sides. As long we score a decent turnover of the chances created im happy, which I think we’ve done, considering how poor the service has been. 21 goals in 29 games, but Nate, we’re 4th bottom with one of the worst defensive records in the league and only 2 of our midfield players have contributed with goals in 19 games. We’re not going to be scoring a huge amount until the play behind the strikers is improved.

A new manager should have had all the necessary stats and info in front of him at interview stage and discussed how he was going to achieve more productivity in the form of goals work rate and playing styles, as well as having discussed potential targets in the January window

Maybe if they were applying for an attractive job. Tisdale’s only competition for the job came from an employed manager in the league above. We needed Tisdale more than he needed us.

Lovely finish from Norris swept in from distance on his left foot
Missed a great opportunity to win the game with 10 to go. Had the chance to hit it first time took far too long as if waiting for government guidance, fizzled out for a GK when it looked as though it may have been a corner. But he had a genuine really good opportunity to smash that home.


GK did he catch anything seemed more interested in pushing the ball back into play into the danger zones every time and his kicking was poor Saturday

Defensively this season we have slipped over more times than I’ve seen Steven Gerrard memes and it has cost us in several games

Lots of work to do
New keeper
New defensive line
Bring in extra midfield options and wingers
Add another striker

Not to much to ask, how much is available to spend during the window as highlighted to any incoming manager.

Just one thing so you feel all of either Smith , Anang or Bastien are not good enough ? We could get rid of Smith as on short term contract plus Anang may have a Jan release cause in loan deal but Bastien must be on season long deal.

I'm no expert on body language, but Tizzers post match interview clearly showed he was very angry at the performance of the team and he will be shipping out most of them in January.

As bad as it sounded from the commentary, Tisdale can't work miracles inside a week. Maybe it's a case of steadily picking up points until the players get to grips with things and it clicks. The January window will be important too, I fear List going but it's also an opportunity to bring in some players he wants and get rid of some he doesn't rate.

My concern so far.

The lack of ambition after they scored until the last few minutes, only 1 change in the game.

He was happy with a point.

I'd like to see changes in CM Taylor and Reeves don't work.

We need some vocal players. Coker's was the only voice I could hear a lot of the time.

We need some proper bite in midfield, a proper physical battler. Taylor and Reeves just don't work together.

And we need wingers that don't have the initials BA if we're playing wingers.

It may be 1 extra point clear, but to me that’s bad to be dropping points at home to the bottom team in the league.

I sincerely hope your right this time about turning things around, now a manager with experience is in charge.

January transfer window there definitely needs to be new additions, in my opinion I think we need at least 3/4 bringing in,

Left and Right winger
Centre back
Striker, or give Daly a chance.

If Daly isn’t going to get game time, then he might as well be sent out on loan for rest of the season.

Also Send out on loan,
Andrade, not good enough
Osborne, not good enough
LJW, not good enough
Reeves, not good enough
Reid, not good enough, which leaves only 2 strikers, Norris and List, so definitely bring in a new one.

As for Ross Marshall I think he needs to be given a chance to see what he has to offer. Can’t figure out why he can’t get game time. If he’s not going to be played then he might as well be sent out on loan for the rest of the season. Shame he doesn’t get the chance to play.

I hope we sign another 3 central midfielder in January because you can never have enough central midfielders, as our successes of the last few seasons when having 8 central midfielders has shown.

Lines, Read, Taylor, Reeves, Osborne, Smith, Carter, Marshall just isn't enough.

Get calling your contacts Leon.

Edit: my point being recruitment has been poor for ages now. I don't know if the managers ask for the same type of player because they want to play a certain way and then Leon sees which shit ones are available to suggest, or whether they ask for something different and get told there aren't any available.

Replace the entire midfield as a starter, maybe keep Lines

Tonight was truly awful, with only a strike from Norris to note.

He's very clearly a class above many others in the team. Him, Read and one other has to be our starting midfield. I feel like the 'one other' needs to be someone new, because I really don't think any of the others are good enough.

What worried me tonight was Tisdale playing him on the right wing after we went 4-4-2. Very strange.

Like many I am a big fan of Lines.
Playing him wide at 36yrs old I am puzzled.
His much better in the middle threading passes into List.
On the playing side, I thought TVC &
Prosser very solid. Full backs ?
Midfield again just doesn't work for me
List got on to some great balls over the shoulder especially from Prosser.
Blowing at the end , bless him
Nozza great goal some good link up play, but then disappeared a bit.
Like some Puzzled on no use of substitutions.
List out on his legs, Lines didn't have the best of games, Taylor & Reeves just doesn't work for me. They pick up very little second balls
Thought Scunny deserved a point.
