Re: The Luton thread

43 games and 43 goals, I don't blame the strikers more a lack of creativity.

I have run the scenarios and we lose the last 3 we go down, as the ones who need to win below us have Bradford, and despite playing each other you would expect all teams to get 3 points needed down to Dons. Southend could get 4 points given the games but it is 50/50 and Wallsall won't get more than 4. Most teams under us play a top team and expect no points form the game.

A point at home to PA sets them up for having to win at Scunny last game, as both lose their other game. This should see us just stay up. The only fear is Wycombe beating Walsall then losing to Wimbledon, we are likley to go down on GD if that happens.

Re: The Luton thread

Fingers crossed for good results tomorrow for us.
Best results are:
Burton to beat Southend
Bristol to beat Rochdale (draw not terrible but think Bristol are safe)
Charlton to beat Scunny
Barnsley to beat Plymouth
Wycombe Walsall draw? (Not disasterous either way who wins this one)
Luton to beat wimbledon on tuesday.

Can see next Saturday being winner takes all tbh. Whoever wins will be safe. Donít want to be going to Pompey needing something.

Hope everyone is positive next Saturday, could be a big un.

P.S. we have it in us to get something ourselves on tuesday. Nice pitch against a team who like to play football may suit us. A point would be lovely.

Re: The Luton thread

Have just seen the highlights on sky, it never showed the long backpass from our attacking half, the last one hughes did make.

Apart from those in a defensive area, all free kicks are taken by the same person in the same way. A hopeful punt towards the opposition penalty area in the hope that Sykes or Hughes can make contact with a header.

Our occasional attacks down the left wing seem to carry little threat. We all know (so the opposition must know) that any left wing attack will stop for the ball to be played infield - usually diagonally backwards.

When things are not going well, I never see any evidence of Plan B. When substitutions are made (often too late), they seem to be like-for-like
Maybe the problem on the left has something to do with playing naturally right footed players there ? Or is that too simplistic ? Clearly not to simplistic for our opponents to work out.

Re: The Luton thread

our football has become stagnated, early season what we lacked in physical strength we made up for with our speed and agility enabling us to penetrate defences, our resent performances have lacked all of these qualities, Billy has been out muscled by defenders with little support from players or officials and so on this point I agree with Cashman that at present time we are wasting our time playing Billy on his own up front, the Donís performances are benign of the form that took him to Ipswich, there are many teams in league 1 with much stronger squads than ours, so the loss to Luton was predictable although we cross/fingers and hope, looking at the fixture list I fear we are on very shaky ground,

Post 35 in the "Fleetwood Town match" thread:

It also seems very odd to have two right-footed players as left back and left wing. All defenders will know that the pair of them will switch the ball to their right foot to centre it. So predictable and easy to defend.


Clearly great minds etc etc.

Re: The Luton thread

Watched highlights for about 10th time now.
Seans ball back to Yosser was fine.

Callum should have done better for 2nd pen and 3rd goal...
But let's blame Sean.

More goals than Clicker
More assists than Clicker

Re: The Luton thread

Rubbish seans ball back was shocking we were directly in line with it. It also put hughes under pressure, but he could/should have done better.

Hughes had no player within virtually 10yards of him.
How is that under pressure ???

Careful Smudgie !.. Heretic mutterings , along with decent, honest and carefully stated opinions and replies are really not appreciated by some of our current contributors !.
Such mutterings could well be met with an outpouring of vitriolic drivel !

Everyone around us thought seans ball caused it but obviously you know better! Also said hughes should have done better, but change the subject ignore what probably caused the result.
