He needs to stop taking to heart bits of stuff off the internet though. Football is a game of opinions. Also, plenty of people, who are genuine supporters rather than spectators, unfortunately won’t have anything positive to say about any aspect of the  club until changes at the top are seen and fresh investment/ideas are on board. That’s not his fault, and I appreciate he wants togetherness but To be fair nothing is detracting from getting behind the team from those that still attend. Hell, imagine the backing if everyone still went

The quickness to pick up on the most minor of criticism is a growing concern of mine.

Fully agree. The football being served up is excellent but PP shouldn’t mix that up with correct and deserved criticism of our off the field operation. I suspect he has only heard a rather one sided version of events with regards to what has happened off the field at the club over the past 2 years.

Hannigan has been brilliant alongside Harrison. I don't think we have conceded a goal when Dens has STARTED at RB. He came on against Witton and didn't start against Warrington in the trophy replay. Dens has been quality. The whole defence have been spot on.

Absolutely and going for the cliche coupon buster, if you hold possession like we are doing this season, the opposition are less likely to have chances to score. I do think it's fair to say the Workington and Witton defeats were down to very specific circumstances and they account for 9 of the 21 goals conceded thus far. It means we've let in 12 goals in the other 24 games played, which will always give us a more than even chance of winning, as Saturday showed.   

We might be seeing a lot more of those Witton circumstances though and I hope that the management team have taken that on board and prepared  accordingly. I have some faith that they have.

I imagine PP is surprised at the state of the pitch. If we want to play sexy football in this league then we need to have a decent playing surface at home because we cant reply on the opposition for that.

There is no doubt the surface does/will effect the style of play that PP likes to play and no slight on the ground staff whatsoever but I would love to see a concerted effort at the season end to rectifying the problem once and for all. perhaps a brainstorming meeting with the likes of the council and if possible a rep from MUFC (as I think there under 18s use it) and whoever else to sort the drainage problem once and for all.

I do think it would probably entail a fair bit of work though.

Haven't we already been down that route though?

I would personally hate 4g, it isn't the same game. However our pitch is terrible this year, when other pitches at our level are OK. Just needs addressing this summer.

Fair comment, perhaps there is a problem/ blockage somewhere in the system.

Well, if you will insist on getting involved in a heated fracas with Bob Carolgees....

Easily the better side, and could have been two up at the break but for their keeper.

But why do we make life hard for ourselves but dropping deeper as the game wears on ? We only needed to cock up once and two points could have gone down the pan.

If Farsley beat Shaw Lane 4-2, the latter can't be THAT good. And by the time they get to that playoff 6 pointer at Workington, they should need a telescope to see us. We will win this league by a margin of at least 10 points, and I fancy Grantham or Warrington for the playoffs.
Well said that man!
