Bank Holiday Weekend Games

Home win and point against Bradford would be a good return for the 2 games. Would love 2 wins but expect Monday’s game to be a difficult one.

Fancy BPA to do well this season with the squad they have.  They also came unstuck away at Leamington so it can happen to the best of us.  Will be a good test for us on Monday.
United we stand..................

Due wins over both. Spennymoor haven't made the best of starts, leaked a few at the back. BPA have been quite steady. But don't see why we can't get a result there

They will both be worried about us, we have a very good team now,we all need to start believing in these players and manager.

Just out of interest if we manage to win the next 2 games it would mean before the end of August we could have 2 points more than what we had at the beginning of December last season.

Just let that sink in.

We could potentially be 3 months better off than last season if we beat both Spennymoor and BPA..

this assumes the Spennymoor keeper is fit and the bus doesn't break down on it's way this season!

With their recent from, l would think they are praying for the bus to break down.
Or the team suddenly get abducted by 👽 alliens.

Oh dear a loss, l was sitting by the pool in Turkey listening to the game on endeavour.
So l am not going to comment on the match as commentators don't always give you an accurate account of the game.

thought we were poor today and if we played all night wouldn't have scored and always looked vulnerable to balls over the top. I think we still lack someone in midfield who can put his foot on the ball and pick a pass.
Also a little concerned that its first time Craig has tried to excuse a poor performance.

Its only one game so onwards and upwards for Monday.

Poor all round today, and against a team who hadn't scored away, and to me were fairly ordinary. How we bounce back on Monday will show is exactly how serious a threat we can be to the top of the table. One game can be viewed as a blip, but we need to keep the pressure on, and not let it become 2 games without a win . UTP

Had enough of the ball but never did anything with it. They did to us what we did to alty, plus time wasting/canny game management

I normally agree with Craigs decisions but today when he took Wafa off he basically handed the win to Spenny.
Wafa is our only aerial target its time our bigger in inches players took on more responsibility from set plays and showed some real desire to get on the end of the many corners and set plays we had.
Spenny did a proper job on us today.
Onwards up the pilgrims!

My problem isn't with him taking off Wafula because he did bring on Westcarr to take that role but why are we focusing on playing football that revolves around an aerial target? Especially when we only really have one outlet in the team with a decent amount of height on the pitch at a given time? If it doesn't go to the intended target you're just conceding possession. It's alright if he wins it and we have someone winning the second ball but today we didn't have that
