Altrincham FC First Team / Late goals (continued)
« on: January 11, 2021, 11:27:33 PM »
Following on from the discussion in the Sutton match thread, I've had a quick analysis of when we scored the 20 goals we've notched in the league so far. As I suspected, 12 have been scored in the 62nd minute or later.

Of the other 8, we've scored two in the 10th and 11th minutes, four between the16th and 31st minutes, and two between the 39th minute and half time.

So we've not got off to a flying start to either half of any game - no goals before the 10th minute, nor in the opening 16 minutes of the second half. It may all be coincidence - or it may be that we're taking a while to get into our rhythm from "cold".

"That was my lowest moment because I knew I was at a good club, knew I was working for good people, and I wasn't able to do the job to the best of my ability at that time. I lost a little love for football".

Neil Young discusses his spell as Alty manager in the run-up to Sunday's FA Cup tie against Spurs.

Stretchered off at Carlisle yesterday. His opponent was red carded, but the injury seemed to be caused by landing flat on his back in the aftermath rather than by the foul itself. Been on Barrow's forum this morning but nobody knows the extent of the problem. Here's hoping it isn't too serious.

Frank Sinclair appointed "Head of Coaching Development" at Port Vale. There's always some club daft enough......

I SAID their keeper was dodgy !

Totally bossed the second half. Mullarkey and Lundstram were outstanding but my MOM was Simon Richman. Every club needs a play anywhere man.

First piece of business has to be trying to get Lundstram on a full season loan.

Altrincham FC First Team / Boston United : Playoff Final match thread
« on: July 25, 2020, 07:57:16 PM »
I saw nothing tonight to make my knees knock.

Of the 5 they scored, two were dodgy penalties (ref was really poor), one was an outrageous fluke, and one came when Gateshead over-committed and left a space the size of the Sahara Desert for their strikers to exploit. The third goal was quality, but that's just one.

Of the 3 they conceded, two were down to poor defending of set pieces, the other from a nailed-on penalty that came under minimal pressure. Their keeper looked really dodgy.

If we play like we did today, and don't get a weird referee, we should be fine.

An intriguing prospect. We certainly need to step up a gear from Sunday. I'd start Richman for Durrell on the simple basis that we absolutely have to consider the prospect of a penalty shootout, and Durrell would be essential to that.

Says he turned down a trial with a league club because he preferred the "security" of a contract at Telford.

One can well understand that he's had enough of trials....

Just watching "The Big Match Revisited" on ITV4. Between the two main games, they showed the winning goal from Tranmere v Chester, an own goal where Tranmere's centre half lobs the ball back to keeper Dick Johnson. Unfortunately he's some way off his line......
