Thread: Shrewsbury Town Post Match Thoughts

  1. #21
    Yep, a great confidence building result.

    A good fixture to allow the squad to settle and gel.

    We lost to a Lincoln team on Saturday that out ran, out tackled an out foxed us an itís meltdown.

    We beat a Shrewsbury team with numerous reserves in a crap cup an weíre world beaters.

    Pass the Prozac...

    Barlaser MOM. On the Tuesday Night at Shrewsberry thread I said we should persevere with him though several posters had decided he was crap.

The two "Smith nods cross down for Freddie to score" goals so far look like a good route for us to put the ball in the opposition net, and if we can get the same crosses from the other wing Vassell will be able to do the same

    Was thinking the same thing Mike. Smith the target man with these two playing off him. Smith shouth be the focal point for me.

    Well I got older and I now think that without making a rather large point - a great big screaming complaint about Saturdays "attitude" things wouldn't change.....

    If we had tonight's attitude we'd have strolled past Lincoln and the "attitude" is the managers main job.

    Tonight we out played them - passing and movement AND WE SHOT. Every player played well with zero black marks. Only one chance for Shrewsbury was a trademark Wood being turned and chasing his player into the box - we were lucky not to concede then. But that was it.

    Comfortable - but comfortable because we wanted it more and played as a team.

    From abject depression to a -yup marten we might have a team here....but only if they're sent out with the right "attitude".

    Borrow a hairdryer if necessary...but chalk and cheese night tonight. NYS far superior ground as well - makes you appreciate home comforts.

    Keep it up....please !

    Not sure it's as simple as that. The early goals were crucial, we started well against Lincoln but found them a typical stubborn, hard working/tackling team playing not to concede. If you don't get an earlyish goal against such teams, and the early pressure doesn't pay, it can fizzle out - especially with new players gelling. Whereas teams coming at us on their ground can leave gaps for the 3 up front.

    It's for Warne to adjust against the different challenges. I think the attitude, if not fully there yet, isn't the problem.

    This is spot on so far as I'm concerned. Who doubted that we would make chances away from home? Who doubted that if we actually took a couple of them early on the team would relax and play some good stuff? A different test will be at home against sides that look to frustrate and precisely where we don't score early. It's not attitude - that is imo an insult to the team and manager.

    "Richard Woods the captain
    He should wear the captains hat
    Get him back into the bloody team
    I think its just as simple as that"

    There are of course other reasons, but, and I didn't go, I wonder if the defence looked better organised. I know that Shrewsbury made 8 changes but we were up against Morrison, who is nobody's mug.

    Thoughts?

    Wood will play his part this season.
    Warne will manage when he plays him and against who?
    His experience will be a big asset this season.

    As for last night a good solid performance.
    We took our chances that was the difference than against Lincoln although obviously we played better.
    We should all have some patience with the Manager and the team.
    Consistency is what we need and that takes time.

    You make a good point, however, winning games of football and winning them well breeds confidence whoever you are playing and maybe one or two have gone a little over the top with the plaudits, but the result and performance gives us all a lift, especially after the lincoln match.

    If my memeory serves me well and it often doesn't but I seem to thing that Woods makes an instant difference to the defence when he comes into it. Whether he's good for a long run in the team I'm not sure but he seems to have something that's needed.

    Wouldn't get too carried away as we always beat Shrewsbury, they must hate us.

    I thought the defence looked far more composed than on Saturday. I think it was well into the second half before Price had to touch the ball in anger. Whether that is solely down to Wood, I wouldn't like to say. I thought they all did well.

    As for Warne not having a hairdryer, I was sitting just above his technical area (corporate hospitality, I'm afraid) and can tell you that a couple of players got both barrels from him.

    Morris didn't look at all well when he came off btw. Very dazed and with his legs buckling a little bit. Concussed, I would think.

    We still need a new centre back and a couple of wide players, particularly on the left, to balance the squad. Vassell's first Millers goal in a competitive game since joining us about 13 months ago! Let's hope he has an injury-free season this time and starts banging in a few in our league games. If he can do that he could get some more international caps too.

    everyone relax Paul Warne knows what it takes to get out of this league

    there a few new players so over time it should get better.

    everyone relax and enjoy the season we will lose and play crap and we will win and thrash people.

    but we will be top 6

    I didn't go last night so I am obviously a nonsense posting armchair fan.
    However, the Radio Sheffield coverage, with Ronnie Moore, was very good. Ronnie was full of praise for Wood and he did actually spot that Wood scored his "trademark" goal against Shrewsbury, unlike someone who apparently only noticed an alleged defensive lapse (perhaps he left early lol)
    Ronnie actually raved about Barlaser's performance - rating him man of the match by a mile.
    It's great to have talent like him and Olosunde in the side. If they can match their talent with consistency we will be in for a treat.
    Excellent result after a very disappointing Saturday. Against a poor Shrewsbury by all accounts. Nevertheless definite grounds for optimism.

    Keep it up....please !
    “ Hairdryer “ treatment is old hat. You’re living in the past.
    Decent managers like Chris Hughton, Wagner ex Huddersfield, Klopp don’t need to b.ollock players in public, there’s a time and a place for all that.
    Not surprising PW gets plenty of compliments from within football about his style of management....meanwhile on Social Media it’s all barbies and picking mates.
    Hopefully the days of a manager at RUFC going blood red and veins bulging from his neck are long gone.

    I've done my quota of matches for the season and so will be back on my armchair.

    Barlaser and Olosunde were impressive and I thought that Robertson did particularly well too. The only minor concern that I had was with Ben Wiles who seemed to be struggling to get into the game at times, but, frankly, I don't think there was a poor performance from anyone.

    Ronnie Moore made the same comments about Wiles last night. Suggested he needs a bit more confidence and to not be afraid to make the odd mistake. Obviously another good prospect though.
