POINT WON OR POINTS LOST ?

Reckon the draw was just about right against Northwood but so frustrating giving the ball away many times ! Play off candidates, well from what I understand maybe potentially pointless anyway !!!!

Re: POINT WON OR POINTS LOST ?

Before the game I would have said 2 points dropped, but after the game it was a point gained as Northwood created much more chances in the second half.
Morgan Campbell made a couple of good saves to keep the score at 1-1. I don't think the Northwood goalkeeper had to make a real save in the second half.
Also the number 2 Sam Jenkins kept Isaiah Jones and Danny Bassett very quiet.

More worrying is the home form at the moment. Could it be that the players are not comfortable kicking towards the "Chafer Bug" End especially on the left-hand wing?
In comparison, the TMUFC away form is outstanding.

Re: POINT WON OR POINTS LOST ?

A completely different game to the away fixture which we dominated but managed to throw away earlier in the season. Northwood look a much improved team since then, very solid defensively with their no 2 looking particularly impressive. So despite us going into the break 1 up, the feeling was that the game was going to continue to be very tight and could go either way. No surprise, then, when Northwood got their well taken equaliser early in the second half and continued to look the side that was to go on and win the game. The final whistle came as a relief as it didn't look that we were going to trouble their keeper too much. In all, I think a point gained as we could easily lost it, our home form really has to improve if we have any realistic hope of a playoff place.

Fair comments. Don't think we had even a sniff of a further goal in the second half on our turf unfortunately, unlike Northwood !!!

Re: POINT WON OR POINTS LOST ?

They had a one on one which Campbell did a good job of stopping, and then we had to clear one off the line as well. All a bit kick bollock scramble. At points I thought Domingo-Carrington did really well, but little lapses in his concentration almost cost us- think he was the fella who cleared off our line though?

Absolutely agree that their full back was best player on the park. Was everywhere for them and defensively sound too.

Thought we lacked a little bit of cohesion in the final third, not really sure where a goal was going to come from. Eddie Dines had a quiet game too.

A point gained, I'd conclude. Looking forward to tomorrow night.

Re: POINT WON OR POINTS LOST ?

Definitely a point gained.

It was a poor performance but a long time since our last one and somehow we kept the unbeaten record going.  Wondering if a couple of good ‘loan’ signings might help us now - we might need centre back cover anyway but sense that a proven goal scorer and somebody robust in midfield could help. There must surely be some out of favour players in higher leagues that we could target?

Re: POINT WON OR POINTS LOST ?

Just to add to my message according to Official Facebook, Dan Summers has signed for us!

Re: POINT WON OR POINTS LOST ?

Cripes - that came out of nowhere!

He seems to have slipped off my radar - since leaving us I think he joined Carshalton and then signed an 18 month contract with Worthing, but it didn't seem to work out.

I don't think he's been playing at our level over the last 2 years.

But he knows where the goal is!

We know he might not be the hardest worker off the ball, so to get the best out of him you need to play to his strengths.

Returning prodigal sons do not always work out, but maybe Dan is just what we need this season.

Re: POINT WON OR POINTS LOST ?

He has been at our last two home games and was exchanging text banter with Gary last Saturday. It looked highly likely then that he was coming back: no other reason to be there.

I'm so happy that Dan is back and Dan will be so happy that I'll be cheering him on.

Jokes aside I'm a bit happier now that we have an experienced goal scorer up front and I hope that it works out.

Re: POINT WON OR POINTS LOST ?

Just what we need a out and out poacher with experience hopefully he can get some goals and push for playoffs at this level should come good
