    Leon Legge

    Great news. Thanks
  2. Leon Legge ever present this season. Superb achievement. He's on 9 bookings though. So will he be banned when he gets to 10, or is there a cut off after playing this many games?

    Intriguingly, before yesterday's game, we were 7th highest scorers and in 7th place. I was surprised, as, like you, I didn't consider us to score enough. But then, in recent weeks, we have been both creating chances and scoring more goals.
  4. Joyce won't be banned as he's past the 37 game cut off, says the Sentinel. Does this apply to Legge as well?
  5. There seems to be a trend developing that Conlon is becoming a major influence on the way we play.
  6. Askey has made reference to improving Smith's distribution and general footballing skills. Also that he's a better player than he realises. Finally, he's finally playing in a reasonably decent team, allowing for more expression.
  7. I agree 100%. This is what steady, incremental progress looks like. This is what valuing your staff and building a team looks like. It's good people doing good things and getting good outcomes.
  8. https://www.stokesentinel.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/port-vale-praised-colchester-boss-3852947 References turnovers and uncharacteristic mistakes by their players. All down to relentless pressure. Vale were unplayable for large periods yesterday.
  9. Not heard mention of the pitch, which looks in very good nick in spite of the abundance of rain.
  10. For me, one player sums up today's team and last year's team. Joyce is the lynch pin of the team. In our somewhat pedestrian and defensive side of last year, he seemed slow and negative. Always passing sideways. Today, in a very energetic, forward thinking team, he is quick and positive, often playing incisive forward passes. This is a proper team where everyone knows their role and work so hard for each other. A remarkable transformation, way ahead of schedule. It seems disrespectful to select individuals, as they all rely so much on each other and every player is a better player because of the team ethic. Wow! It was a pleasure to be there today!
  11. I'm liking that many of our remaining fixtures are against teams in the top half and teams who have improved e.g. Crawley, Grimsby. Should make for open games that will suit us well.
