default Tuesday Night . . . . .

on 21/1/2018, 19:52
Another masterpiece created by your dedicated Programme team today means that on Tuesday night Programme number 18 contains . . . .

1) A rundown on all things Nantwich.
2) Fr. Keefe talks about being “In the Dark”!
3) Ian Wood’s “This Day Then” features a 1-0 win over Barrow in 2001.
4) Steve’s Netbusters report is closing in on a grand and his thoughts on last week.
5) Keith’s Supporters Column reports on additions to the City Media team and pays tribute to this week’s FA Trophy winners.
6) “Dollies in Profile” - Well I’ll not tell you who but I did wear shin pads for his interview.
7) “Where are they Now” features a 68-year-old ex-England U23 International who played in the First Division and European Club football before his 80 odd appearances for City between ’78 and ’82.
Cool There’s League tables and all the Evo-Stik round up.
9) Transfer news of an ex-City defender who’s gone ‘South’.
10) Then there’s City Chat, City Stats, Results, Fixtures, On the Road to Matlock, the NPL Column and we have a “Birthday Boy” as well.

Your programme team don’t ask a lot, we don’t need pats on the back, we just need to see you walking round at the game with one sticking out your pocket or in your hand. Spend £2 it’s the best value in the league and it makes us all very, very happy.

Judging by the fact nobody has posted any comments about either of the last two games, I can only assume we are not cheered up. It seems that, despite what PB says, we are currently heading in the wrong direction as far as the league table goes. Everyone has been going on about having two up front (me included) but since it happened we don't seem to have got any better. I can't comment on recent performances as I haven't seen any, but unless we start to get a good run of results we will be looking at a bottom ten finish rather than top ten. Worrying times.

The programme always cheers me up. The game less so at the moment. After the largely positive form of the first half of the season we seem stuck in a rut at present and the above assessment of our top ten vs bottom ten prospects appears about right to me at the moment although overall its been a relatively solid return to this level taking the season as a whole I think?
Last night the first half hour we were passive and passed off the park with Nantwich exploiting the space we gave them, impressed with their play in this period and particularly their 7 mwasile. Our goal came with our first positive piece of attacking play and thereafter we should have had a penalty although whether we would have deserved a 2-1 ht lead is debatable.
Second goal so soon after ht killed us for a spell but oddly the sending off saw us then play our best football of the night and the two late chances which whistled past the post could easily have crept in. Had we started the match with the positivity we finished it when a man down would have been a very different game but we seem to start a number of games on the back foot of late.

Agree with the above poster passed off the park until we scored, too far away to see if it was a penalty, second goal for them well worked corner routine that rarely works, last night it did, after sending off which was for Mercer putting his hand in the face of an opponent deserved something for the spirited way they had a goal.

Mercer red card - I can understand why the ref gave it but it wasn't at all malicious or violent - more a case of handbags between both players.

Kilifin penalty shout - I think their defender was going to get the ball first but then maybe fell accidentally thus bringing Tom down. Possibly. It certainly looked a bit strange and I can understand why it wasn't given, though it probably should have been.

Overall, however, we deserved to lose. We were bereft of ideas and, until late on, of energy. They won nearly all the 50-50 balls and just seemed so much more up for it than we did. And they passed far better than us (a familiar story). But what can you expect when you leave your two best, most creative players on the bench? It's hard to understand. Obviously Phil knows their form and fitness much better than I do and he must have his reasons, but for me Ryan Winder and Sam Bailey would be automatic starters every game. And not bringing either of them on when Paul Jarvis had to go off was even stranger - this left us with just one attack-minded midfielder (Craig Carney) who unfortunately didn't have one of his better games.

What happened to Paul Jarvis by the way?

I'd make that THREE best, most creative players on the bench by including Charlie Bailey.

Yeah many other supporters didn't get it either. Easy options to leave out after the defeat at the weekend?

Although we started with Kilifin & Djabi,I thought that Tom played that deep that it was more 4-4-1-1 (not that, as you all know, I know anything about formations). We were truly dismal for the first 40 minutes, & not too much better for the remainder of the game. To be fair, we did have moments where we looked ok, but I don't quite know how to put it, overall I wasn't impressed much!
The match officials were of the usual dire quality that you'd expect at this level, the challenge on Killer just before half time was the most nailed-on penalty (& so would've reduced them to 10 men) See the match highlights  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tkGR-RPoNc&t=11s Have a look about 2 minutes in & tell me that I'm wrong. That may well have changed the whole evening.
The whole atmosphere, team & supporters seems so flat at the moment. Maybe we're expecting too much. I would've been totally happy with mid-table if you'd asked me preseason, but having seen the standard of football in this division, I think we should/could be doing better. I don't expect to be challenging for the title, or even the playoffs tbh, but I would like to see more positive/attacking intent.

Totally agree about the officiating Lasher. Tuesdays Ref thought he was George Courtney, wanting the linesmens escort at half time and full time. He knew fine well he'd messed up but the sheer arrogance and incompetence of some of these people borders on the ridiculous. They are there to officiate and oversee the game, not to influence the outcome of it, that's upto the players and management.
