As our fan base grows it's inevitable this sort of thing becomes a bit less uncommon. Think some of the criticism directed at Mahoney aren't completely unfounded however. Walking off the pitch and costing us almost a minute of playing time was inexcusable. If I was head coach he wouldn't be in my team on Saturday after that.

Think all three subs Akrigg, Ince and Sawicki all made a huge difference. Akrigg would be in my starting XI on Saturday as would Ince.

Hopefully we'll see a bit more of Sawicki as well. He played a full 90 minutes for the reserves just 24 hours earlier and scored a brace. Rapid pace.

Subs often make a big difference simply because they come on fresh and full of energy when those around them are tiring. Good management of substitutes is what can distinguish a good manager from a poor one. It doesn't necessarily mean that the subs are better players than the ones they replace.

Having said that, I agree that all three subs played well, and I would like to see Ince start instead of Wearing, who isn't quite good enough in my mind to warrant a starting position. This would also allow Kilifin to play as our main striker which will suit him better, though I would still like to see Liley given a go. I know that pre-season friendlies aren't always a good guide to competitive football, but from what we saw then he could be our best number 9.

Don't mean to sound very skeptical but I thought Akrigg had a few very poor touches in good positions

They're always on the EVO STIK website, usually within an hour of the game ending:-

As soon as I saw the busy car park I thought "ah, people have come to watch us, this isn't going to end well" and sure enough. First half I thought was pretty even but they got the goal. Then most of the second half bar the last 10 minutes we were pretty dreadful. With the exception of Hunter, the appalling lack of a decent first touch was bad even for this level. Hopefully just one of those nights. The Mahoney going off thing hadn't registered I was too busy reflecting on how disappointing he was on the pitch. I've spoken about Simon Wills before, bless him, if he could play football he'd be quite a player, but he can't so a lot breaks down at his feet. Ince is a good player that should improve attacking side of things when he is starting. Simon Wearing is raw and has promise, but looks out of his depth at the minute in terms of being the No 9. Hopefully he is a quick learner.
