Re: Playoff Leg 1 - Away at Wimbledon

Why has no one commented on the most glaring weakness?

Our best player Matt Crooks is out injured, we are a far better team with Crooks.

Would think everyones aware of that, but the rest have near got us up automatic, injured is injured, so not even worth considering.

Re: Playoff Leg 1 - Away at Wimbledon

Our central midfield and billy kee have been the biggest concern IMO , both vs Stevenage and again yesterday.

Drop Kee, drop Halliday and drop mcconville would be my solution, although I'm sure Coleman will figure out a plan.

Regarding the Mcconville debate, I actually think he is a decent player at league 2 level but when he gets pressed for space, he then allows the opposition to dominate him physically and this amongst some bad touches and passes is what contributed to a indifferent display yesterday.

Wimbledon were solid defensively although part of that was because Kee didn't really get into the game.
With Wimbledon able to sit on a lead in the 2nd leg, we will need to bolster and adapt our attacking approach, I'm not sure focusing on playing down the wings will get us much joy, they seemed weaker in central midfield than at full back.

What Cashy? ........
You don't agree with my observations that IMHO he is our 'Least Effective Player'.

All I am asking is that several of you on here need to be less negative ALL THE TIME with the lad and consider giving some POSITIVE comments for a change!

Whoops!
I posted my comments in a real rush before going out this morning and did not have time to proof read it. 'Typing' wise there were quite a few errors but I think you probably managed to follow my drift!

On further reflection. I stand by my observations about the criticism aimed at Sean Mac. So much negative comment is not necessary and not helpful IMHO. I am sure that some of the players may read what we post and I do think it could strain their relationship with us the 'Supporters'. Call me naive if you wish but I am a firm believer in PRAISE.

Well, we need to move onto Wednesday and the 'Second Half' of the tie. With 100% support from our fans we can beat Wimbledon. I am confident that John and Jimmy will select the right team and subs, and use the right tactics on the night that will give us overall Victory in the tie!
ON STANLEY ON

Re: Playoff Leg 1 - Away at Wimbledon

My own opinion ( I have not a clue how to manage a football team ) is we playing the regular ones and other teams now know our style of play, I would suggest Marcus Carver play and Coleman to pull a trick or two from up his sleeve. This is our last chance this season , so what is there to loose.

The lads done well,but the opposition have game videos of him now,therefore his positional play will be tested when we don't have the ball,would still use him as an impact sub,unless the pitches improve.
Would go with Bocco if we were being positive,but we don't need to score early doors,just concentrate on a clean sheet and take the chances when they come.
90 minutes is a long time

Oh dear, Bob, I can't believe you are joining Accy Mad on the wet nursing ward staff.There is such a thing as support on the pitch and support on social media and there is absolutely no need for us to curb any negative comments on here in case we just might upset the feelings of any of our "little darlings". Get real, mate. By the way, I see no suggestion anywhere on here or on fishy that Fosu is carrying a knock, so is it something you and Accy Mad dreamed up to suit your agenda? By the way, I have no problem if Coley dropped Fosu for tactical reasons, but just can't see any point in picking an obvious passenger in his place!8/

Re: Playoff Leg 1 - Away at Wimbledon

OK, I'll accept no-one would rather see Stanley go out than Sean score the winner .....

If this little spat hadn't blown up and distracted me , I would have said sooner that (in my opinion of course) we were unlucky to lose, although we were hanging on for the last 10 minutes, that Adam Buxton and Scott Brown played fantastically well , and that Akinfenwa changed the game , even though he was blown up by the ref the first 5 times he went anywhere near the ball.


And I would also have given great credit to the Ultras for a fantastic 95 minute performance that on occasion even got those of us sitting demurely behind the goal joining in .... so I still will. It's the Stanley boys making all the noise ..... long may it continue, whichever league we're in

Mike..... in response..........
1) I am not 'Wet Nursing' any player, least of all Sean Mac! I have clearly pointed out that I think he is our least effective player out of those who have been picked regularly this season!
2) I have not asked or suggested or demanded that any posters on this forum 'Curb' their criticism but that they balance it with some positive comments occasionally!
3) The only 'Little darlings' that I have in my life number THREE, one of whom I am married to and the other two are my daughters!
4) I did not 'Dream Up' any story about young Fosu having an injury. I was only repeating what I was hearing from several supporters on the terraces as we walked onto the Wombles ground.
5) I don't even know who AccyMad is so I doubt that we 'Dreamed Up' anything!
6) I don't have any kind of an 'Agenda' regarding Sean Mac or indeed any other player....
.....If I do have an 'Agenda' it is to support Accrington Stanley as positively and actively as I can which includes all of the playing staff whoever is selected on any given match day! I would be just the same if were being relegated!

Chimer, Well done for praising Scott Brown. I failed to mention in him in my post but yes I agree, he had a good game.
Looking at the Stats; Akinfenwa was 'blown up' by the referee for five offences in one third of the match! (The time he was on the pitch!) I do believe that had he played for the whole 95 minutes and committed 15 offences then the Ref would probably still not have booked him!
The ULTRAS were AWESOME once again! Even hemmed in to the little 'Goat Pen' last night! It makes me so proud to be one member of this happy little band!
