I only got to the ground at 2.50. Bloody chaos on the road. Only just got home.

Good win though,but I'm not getting too excited.

I agree with Nats summary to be fair, as the home team I would have preferred to see a more aggressive starting line up. Sheffield most have looked at that lineup and thought we were out to contain them which would have lifted their confidence.
I know about cloughs injury but where was Clayton.

Can we get back to the fact nat has her own box and somehow an uninvited little child was in there taking her socks off.

I didn't think the kid would have that much space.

But then again. Very Happy

Considering this was league 1 much to put a smile on your face. a good atmosphere and good support for the team when we went down to 10 men and a good feel about the place once the whistle went.

The selection i found puzzling very defensive look about the team, and you just couldn't see how we could put up much of an attack,
But then if you think about it, we have been pants for 18 months with a defence so fragile any team used to score. and moral lower than a snakes belly. we are playing the favourites to win the league so he sets up to keep them out and hopefully grab a chance and score. Thats how it panned out. so the manager got it right.

We were more organised than last year we would not have won that game.

Howard had a decent game the new guy at right back played a solid game, Wheater & Beevers were superb at the back. Spearing was very involved and Pratley put a shift in.

Downside? if we play that formation every week we will not concede many but we will not entertain, and i do not think we could win automatic promotion, however if he keeps it tight and introduces a little more flair maybe we would challenge.

I thought Wilson worked hard but looked out of position, Taylor and Madine didnt make an impact but the system isolated them. Vela should be better than he performs and Davies on as sub failed to get involved.
But a wins a win

Every cloud and that...

We've just been first up on the night's footy highlights programme on the telly box.

And we were described as being "a big club in the division" and it was billed as "the game of the day in League 1".

Big fish, small pond.

We'll piss this league.

Just got home, been on the pis since 11, the crowd were fucking brilliant today , every player played their fucking socks off, what a day I've had, utterly tremendously brilliant, about 3 hundred quid down, but worth every penny.

I can't see us losing much with this team tbh.

On the up, even talking to a few Sheffield Utd fans, having the crack - they think we'll be up there.


EIEIEIO up the football league we go !!!!!

What a day on the piss, the sun was shining, and we WIN!!!!!!

Loving Nat's unbridled optimism but here in the armchair it did feel like there's still a lot of work to be done, the style is a bit Megsonesque and that there's still a nagging worry especially as they had a couple of gilt-edged chances to change the story so I think everyone has made valid arguments. We just didn't dominate like champions-in-waiting - which we couldn't expect but could hope for. Early days.

rather megsonesque than freedmanesque or coyleesque or lennonesque

Superb strike from spearing. Actually hate him for the most part. Radio only but didn't sound particularly encouraging. 

Early days and all that. Behind parky 100% working with a steaming pile of crap won't be easy.

Missed the first 10 mins due to delayed flights, won't be flying American Airlines again, one in the ground in me holiday clobber with the youngest was pleased with what I saw defensively, we struggled in the middle of the pitch and needed to see a bit more creativity, Taylor did not offer much and as others pointed out Madine was isolated.

proctor played the lone striker role better when he came on, but Trotter and Davies had zero impact.

Spearing was superb, did everything from covering the fullbacks, to getting forward and picked up a great goal.

However 3 points at the start of the season is a great start so hopefully we can build on it.

Exactly.
Wondering how long Parky's got before the fans start to get on his back over his playing style? I reckon that everyone will keep quiet until we lose a few and then we all know where that leads to.

I would like to see Walker and Woolery play on Tuesday to see where they are and to see Clough and Clayton back and Taylor get up to speed with ideally a new wideman and a striker in on loan, because the team we put out on Saturday looked like a containment team with little attacking threat and must have given Sheff Utd a boost.
 I would like to put a team out that says we are going to come at you and ask you questions and let teams worry about us instead of letting them think we're worried about them.

:facepalm:

Yes, because all out attack with a shite defence has worked wonders in recent seasons.

Not saying all out attack, I'm advocating an attacking threat which we didn't have. Barring the goal and a Pratley header there was little threat and they were both from set pieces.
I'm chuffed with the start but just saying we should be letting teams worry about our attack especially at home.

We beat the pre-season favourites and kept a clean sheet.

Some folk are never happy.

If Lennon had been in charge we'd have lost 4-1.

I was working quite literally all weekend (in Birmingham of all places) and couldn't even follow the game via radio nuts but this is a fabulous result and a terrific start for Phil. Not only that but I predicted the goalscorer! Me! I actually got one right! I can't remember the last time I got the right result and correct first scorer. Smile  Cool What a Face Very Happy Very Happy

An incredibly encouraging start. I won't get carried away because it's one game but from everything I've read and the highlights I've seen it really was a solid performance and we deserved the three points. Good start Phil. :clap: :good:

You should have a look at our recent history regarding the relationship between manager and fans if you have any doubts whatsoever that they won't turn on him when we lose a few - possibly apart from Lennon who got a fair bit of sympathy for chasing a lost cause.
Obviously I'll support Parky through thick and thin as he's actually trying to address our defensive problems which has been my bugbear with recent managers - but I'm an armchair fan therefore not representative of the average.
But I think I made a fair point.

Oh I have not forgotten about you ......  unfortunately I was on my way to The New Jersey Shore and could only listen to the first 30 minutes of it on the radio (which had them all over us).
Like most on here the team didn't look very exciting on paper....however they got the job done and apparently put in the effort. So off to a good start......carry it on next Saturday.
Just a side note I notice that Mavies was not quite up to scratch according to Phil and both Clayton & Clough both injured....some things never change. 
No interest in Tomorrows nonsense....Phil can put the reserves in for my money.
