 I don't mind the new website, it is just very slow updating, JL is much quicker with his updates but I use all the Alty sites cos I am then fully informed; and I simply enjoy reading them all.

TBH Uncle G we could have played until midnight and still would not have scored.

For me there was something wrong between midfield and going forward. Phil says we need to be more ruthless going forward but I saw no evidence of that. I expected an improvement on the Blythe game I went to last week but we were toothless. Where was James Poole yesterday?

This proves we do not have enough quality strikers, we only had three at the start of the season. Tom was given his opportunity but for me was found offside 6 or 7 times. He did not make runs as expected, so forward balls went into touch or astray. Back yourself Tom. I felt that Shaun Williams was playing fine, making passes accurately and not giving the ball away but we did not seem to be in tune with what he was trying to do. One ball in the first half was played through by Sean Williams but Tom did noit read it and it went harmlessly into touch.

Why was Shaun not at right-back, as once Liam Goulding took the left back position we were better.

Very very disappointed with yesterday, several players need to ask questions of themselves and try and adapt to this higher level of football.

I was at the 'meet the team' meeting today. I actually said to Phil Parkinson that if we are up to budget then fair enough, but if we could fit in Bay and Lloyd then that would be great. I see something in Lloyd for the future and I am glad that both players have been fitted into the squad. He never said anything about the fact they had already been signed.

Sean Miller looks back to his best, there is your forth striker, he was top goal scorer before his injury and is now looking sharp again. I think Bannister would be just effective as a utility player in midfield or right defence, especially in any absence of JJ.

If the club can afford it, go for it. Squad is then complete, unless they wish to go with Rokka.

Bit of a gamble either way isn't it, but I have had these hunches before with potentials. I also remember speaking to Gerry Quinn and and asking him to sign Clive Freeman from his trials with us because he looked quite good.

I have a hunch that's all. And it's not called Quasimodo!

Was the film that bad last week? I am have to accompany Carys from Chester to watch it next weekend. I just don't like musicals, especially syrupy ones. Give me gritty British drama any day.

All fair points, but think he adds something to the team, in that respect I think he is worth adding on. I find I am getting a buzz when he gets hold of the ball, like we do with JJ and did with Duncan.

That's why I think he is worth a chance for his potential, minimum as a squad player. if we can run with Miller and Bannister. Plus the second keeper.

I like the website but can understand where people are coming from, the news updates are very slow coming through. Potentially it is excellent but I also have difficulty finding things like player profiles etc. the old one was easier to find and very informative.

The first 15 minutes of the game yesterday, we got hit by a whirlwind! My first thought was, they play the game like we do. On the ground and by moving the ball and making it do the work. Both teams were a joy to watch last night. Despite the result I watched some great football from both sides. For 15 minutes we were overwhelmed, but for 75 minutes we weren't. We had several chances to score last night and it was good to see us making Crewe work hard and putting them under pressure. We learnt a lot last night and I imagine Crewe probrably did as well.

I do not think we will face anything like that in our league this season, but there are several hard games we will be playing and that is where I think we will benefit from last nights game.  It was nice to hear a ripple of applause at the end of the match. This was a good workout for the team, and despite the first 15 minutes, they matched a good league 2 side for the rest of the game. I liked the look of the new player who was the substitute number 3 later in the game, plus Sean Miller.  I know we need a new keeper, but is there any room for those two? I hope so.

I think both Crewe and Alty will have good seasons, they both play similar standards of the game. Really looking forward to this season, and also to our friends Trafford on Tuesday.

I think Sean Miller should be our final signing, and Rokka if we can fit it in our budget with the 2nd keeper. Sean looked back to his best V Macc, try him again V Crewe then make the decision
