Thread: Bury Post Match Thoughts

    Bury Post Match Thoughts

    You usually associate bed sheets with getting out of jail but it looks like we used a Towell today.

    Thoughts?

    Couldn't get to the match today, but Towell has done well. Only on the field for a few minutes, but managed to put the ball in the net, after match-thread reported that our other midfielders had missed plenty of sitters. Good shout to be in the starting line-up next time?

    What an enjoyable game!

    One of the best goals scored at NYS by Moore for the first. Then it was a great ball from Taylor who for me was MOtM and Moore nods home. Towell with a brilliant early shot that the keeper can't get prepared for.

    The back line did OK but seemed stronger when Vaulks went to right back. By the way, what a great ball he played to Moore for the first. You can see him running with the ball looking over his shoulder before he placed it on a sixpence for Moore.

    Still some work to do at the back but stronger with Woods in it.

    Apart from their two goals against the run of play hats off to the lads!

    Maybe it was my swollen foot influencing my mind but I wasn't too impressed with us today two goals went in from sloppy defending what's use is there on getting players with height when they can't head a ball out of danger.

    Yes we won (I missed last goal) but crossing and heading were poor

    We should have easily beat these 5-0 the fact that we only just scraped a win is a disgrace

    Disgrace is a strong word, yes we should've won comfortably but you can't call that dispaly a disgrace...

    MMM it was bad I go to every game no matter what kind of pain I'm in (although I regret it ouch my poor foot) and it wasn't brilliant it was sloppy and no doubt warne will say a win is a win but that defence needs some work.

    It was a disgrace it was sloppy, burys defence was poor and their goals came from set pieces a free kick and a corner.

    We won so that's something but unlike some who pull the club apart and others who only say things when we lose. I just say things as I saw it

    Crossing -bad
    Shot accuracy -good
    Passing -decent
    Heading -bad
    Hunger for win -awesome
    Assists - iffy

    My MOTM - Moore

    Very impressed with Towell and not just for the goal. Very composed on the ball. He should definitely be starting on Tuesday for me.

    People near me blaming our goal keeper for their second goal.
    I thought a half-time score of 4 - 2 to the Millers, after Bury had openings to score, their number 30 had a great game for Bury.

    I thought Frecklington should have been taken off earlier, a shock to see Williams taken off before Frecks.

    Ball came on ,but can't win balls in the air, if Moore goes back in January to Ipswich, we are in trouble with only Harris has the centre forward.

    Very enjoyable. Some great passages of play. Plenty of chances created. A few sloppy passes. Credit Beckford for a poachers goal, but the second one was ball-watching at it's worst. We are now in the top half of the table, where i think we will finish.

    well I got the 3 goals right but yes I agree we weren't great and let two in, Ihiekwe and Rodak I thought should have done better.

    got to agree Wood had a good game and covered well for others

    IMO, get Mattock back.

    Moore MOTM for me and we carried on without a striker when he went off for 10mins.

    Looks like we have a good player in Towell and can't wait for him to be a regular

    All three officials were half asleep

    No RB on bench

    3-2 get in!!!!!!

    MATCH STATS

    Possession
    Home 58% Away 42%
    Shots
    Home 20 Away 7
    Shots on Target
    Home 10 Away 4
    Corners
    Home 6 Away 3

    Anything other than a victory would have been hard to take.

    Anyone who predicted that Bury wouldn't score cant have watched us defend this year!

    People are strange, it wasn't the keepers fault.

    An entertaining game. I think things are looking pretty good, work to do of course. Like the look of Ball myself and think JCH will be good when his confidence is up. Hopefully we won't lose Moore but if it happens we'll have to get someone else in.

    Not been today, but seen Ball in other games. He's not a lead-the-line striker , and his natural position is probably behind the main centre-forward. We need to sign an out-of-contract reserve centre forward, even though I'm reluctant to say that after the previous cock-up!(... and definitely NOT somebody who has hardly scored, or even played much in the previous four years like...)
    If Kieffer gets injured we're burgered.

    If it had finished 2-2, I would have been disappointed because that performance absolutely deserved the win. We were the only team asking questions, and really should have put them out of sight. Bury have some decent players but as a team, I thought they were crap. Towell took his goal well and his play reminded me of how Frecks used to play three or four years ago. Even the goal was a typical Frecklington goal. Moore was once again immense until he got clattered. My MOM was Ihiekwe.

    Yep Great goal by Towell. A young Frecks I reckon. I still worry about left back. Purrington caught a few times out of position. We also need to be better at defending and attacking set pieces, BUT some great football today at times and 6-2 woulldnt have been an unfair scoreline. A word about Kiefer. He has a great touch for such a big lad and dunt half get a hammering off defenders but he stands up well to them. We must try to sign him permo but if he keeps banging in the goals I can see him back at Ipswich in Jan. I just keep hoping Ipswich keep winning so they dont want him back. Thought ALL the players got stuck in today from minute one. Its great to see and long may it continue. Also good games from Vaulks, Wood, Iekwe, Williams.(I always feel summat positive is going to happen when he gets the ball. I noted some boos when he was subbed)

    It looked as though the purposely targeted Moore today with some nasty stuff

    I forgot to mention; some of our fans are thick as fo ok, why the need to boo when Warney made a sub?
    I thought Newell should have came on instead of Forde because I thought he would be better getting up to help Moore out but I didn't boo ffs.
