Re: The league return of the fans matchday thread

While I welcome the 3 points, I thought we were lucky to grab all of them.

Cambridge had 3 really good chances in the first half and at least as many in the second. If their players had made better contact, then we'd have been in real trouble.

Having said that, we saw it through and grabbed the victory, so who am I to complain?

I thought Morgan had a good game protecting the defense, with Pell and Butcher also standing out going forward. The worry I have is the same as the Bradford game... we look weak through the middle. Doncaster on Tuesday will have better finishers and we'll be punished far more harshly than Cambridge could manage today.

Let's hope we can adopt a system to cover these flaws.

Bit harsh Cashy, we were coasting in the first half but in the second Cambridge had obviously had a kick up the jacksy & upped their game, & but for the unfortunate mistake for their goal which then got their tails up I think we'd have seen the game out easier but see it out we did despite the 5 minutes the ref deemed necessary - 3 points gained in the Stanley nail biting way, wouldn't have it any differently

Doncaster will be smarting after 2 opening defeats and 0 points on the board will have to be at the top of our game as we have with every team at this level, but Doncaster haven't a good record at our place.

Re: The league return of the fans matchday thread

It felt like things had not changed in my 18 months away from the Wham.
Accy still have ability to grind out wins and we still like to make it hard for ourselves!
First half took our chances well, second half Cambridge forced us back/we dropped too deep but we showed good resilience to hang on.
Pleased will Pell and Butcher in midfield.
Team was as expected, our forwards are a good threat going forward, but we look suscectable to pace at the back.
Morgan and Rodgers came in and did solid jobs. The subs bench looked a bit light of quality for changes.
It was great to be back in the ground, thanks to Jase and the gang for display and the supporters trust for their behind the scenes. On Stanley on! (To Tuesday)

what do you expect when they fast track blokes to do the job. does not seem 5 minutes since he was reffing in the national league north. wasn,t much cop at that stage either. the only thing in his favour was our cautions were justified but they should have had the first one when one of our lads was hauled down near the penalty area when we were attacking. think only a short time after that we got our first which incenced coley and quite rightly.

Re: The league return of the fans matchday thread

at times even in the first half our defence seemed all at sea. a better side who could finish would have gone home with the points. we looked good going forward but really shaky in defence. for me we need a couple of experianced defenders especially a proper left back. i imagine yesterdays win only papered over the cracks for coley as well as most around me thought.

that is a worry. just cannot see us keeping him to be honest. if he does go i hope it will be sooner rather than a minute before the transfer period is over.

No Burgess apparently off to Ipswich, no Savin haven't heard any rumours about him so presume he's had a knock. Hope we get close to seven figures for Burgess.
Heard at the ground yesterday he had tested positive?

That's all the club need but Coley in his interview did mention there had been some sickness in the camp this week "not Covid " and Pell had been affected hence him being substituted.

I know it's your honest view Cashy, as was mine - all about opinions & that's the beauty of the game

Re: The league return of the fans matchday thread

match sponsors usually pick MOM but don’t think it’s taking place due to no hospitality.
might see if Holty wants to do it for time being…

Dion gave his shirt to a young fan who he accidentally hit in the face with a ball during warm up.
