That's it then
« on: August 01, 2020, 04:57:07 PM »
  :( Lost 1-0 to another Crook goalkeeping error, am I right in thinking an error from Crook knocked us out of the FA Cup?

What a terrible way to lose. Another howler from the keeper. We didn't play well, but neither did they. Absolutely gutted.

When Wright went off I felt that was it, Knowles has no speed and can't hold a ball.

Big games and Crock don’t go together.  He cost us today, he cost us v Rochdale n the FA Cup.  Gave Lynn the winner at their place when we battled for a draw with 10 men.

Cannot see him being here next season.   Kings Lynn have signed a new keeper from Norwich how about Street from the there?  Fans love him.

Totally gutted. 13 years of hurt continues. Never felt so low after a game. :-[

 Second half was atrocious, didn't create a thing, Agree about knowles, absolute pants, awful way to lose and do feel for crook but seems to have a habit of having a howler in the big games.
  Still, Always next season to be disappointed again 😏 congrats to Alty though.

Surely a cruel way to lose a promotion. :(

If Crook is still our player next season I think we ought to nickname him "Calamity Crook" :)

Okay Crook messed up , but the forward line as been poor all season.  In an earlier thread I posted how long we had gone without scoring in open play. Today we lacked ideas.  I think we should keep the backbone of the team.  Plenty of good players will be available.  Goalkeeper and striker on the shopping list me thinks.
Over a week ago I sent my hearing aids away to be repaired.  I have not heard a thing since.

It seems to me a lot of our players froze today. I will be very interested in CE's retained list for next season.
Congratulations to Altrincham. I went there a couple of seasons ago when Liam Agnew scored the winner. They were on their knees, even the barmaid was a volunteer working for no pay.

 AFC Fylde are back with us. Oh dear, what a shame, never mind.

Disappointing to lose today.

However keeping perspevtive we'd have been happy with finishing 3rd and fa cup 2nd rond at the beggining of the season.

I know it hurts right now, but just think how much sweeter it will be next year when we can actually be there to watch and support.

Thanks Craig and the rest of the team for an amazing ride

I have slept on it.  My opinion is this. I think yesterday was the right result for the club in so many ways. The team we have is nowhere good enough to compete at a higher level. It would need major money spending on it.  We would be a part time team in a full time league. 

We are moving to a new ground, with all the costs involved.   We don't even know if crowds will be able to watch.  I think it's a season too soon.  Good luck lads, in all that you do. I can see a clear out.
