  1. Credit to Garrity, he’s been superb. So much so I’ve penned a little ditty: We’ve got Garrity, Ben Garrity, I just don’t think you understand, He’s from Liverpool, Plays for Port Vale We’ve got Ben Garrity
  2. Outside change at best for TV. TV have got this lot to go at: United v Villa West Ham v Leeds Forest v Arsenal Boreham Wood/St Albans v Wimbledon Kidderminster v Reading Swindon v Man City I would be surprised if we end up on the box ahead of the above.
  3. Brentford at home. Rubbish gate, not on TV and pretty likely to get beaten. Shocking draw.
  4. Oh, and a special mention for the ref. Even by the standards being set by lower league referees that was a truly incompetent error today to not give us a pen.
  5. Great character from the boys today. Injuries galore up front, goal down at a side a division higher with 15 mins to go and they bounce back to win it. Big team, home or away would do very nicely for the Matrix transfer kitty in Jan.
  6. That one is on Clarke for me. Got the tactics wrong in the first half and that’s where the game was lost. For Askey and 4-3-3 see Clarke and 3-5-2. For all the feted tactical analysis there is little evidence that we play every game on its merits and flex our approach accordingly. Fair play to Walsall. Turned up for their cup final. Won’t be troubling the top 7 come May though on tonight’s evidence.
  7. We’ve been 2nd best by a country mile for me
  8. Clarke talks a good game about tactical management of a game. This is already crying out for a change of tactics.
  9. Smith will be certain to return in place of Martin. I would personally also bring in Taylor for Garrity and Politic for Rodders to provide a bit more creativity and goal threat. Not confident which is the first time for a little while.
  10. Agree fully. Only thing Liverpool will have learned from their latest drubbing in the competition is that not many of that side tonight will make a career in the game.
  11. Not sure Accy have ever taken 700 anywhere so would be surprised to see more than half that rock up at VP on Saturday.
  12. No need to rotate really as we have a week off and then only the pizza trophy in the midweek after. I think Taylor has done enough in recent weeks to merit a start in place of Garrity. Depending on fitness etc I would also bring Worrall in for Benning and move Gibbo back to the left. Otherwise I’d go with the same side as yesterday if both Cass and Politic are allowed to play by parent clubs.
  13. Odd game. First ten minutes we looked a class above Crawley, after the red card we looked like the side with ten men at periods. At half time I very much had the feel of “one of those days”. Having seen the red on video it is a nailed on sending off so credit to the officials. Great use of the bench by the manager and ultimately it was a deserved win and could have been more. Usual great free kick from Conlon, lovely finish by Pett and Amoo doing the damage for 3 and 4 (great assist from TC for the 4th). 15 games and 28 points is very pleasing but it means nowt if we don’t continue to work to the same standard. Pleasingly I still think there is more in this side than we’ve seen so far and in the last few weeks we’ve had to cope without a target man in Proctor.
