    A good result and performance. However it’s 1 win only against a poor team. We need a run of wins before getting excited. If we can back this up consistently then we might have something to shout about l.
    Sitting 11th after 9 games ismt what we expect
    So I remain sceptical for now but it’s great to see a win and cook finding the net again.

    But here’s where I disagree, because I don’t think he did do what was asked of him. He kept giving the ball away, whether by misplaced passes or being caught in possession trying to do fancy stuff. And it wasn’t just once, it was five or six times in fifteen minutes. Most of the times he touched the ball, he lost it. The fact that we scored again and successfully saw the game out was, to my eyes, in spite of him continually coughing up possession. The point of bringing on a late sub with fresh legs, when ahead, is to help keep the ball and take the pressure off those who’ve been on all game. What Osedebe did was the exact opposite - he put pressure back on our defence and midfield by frequently giving the ball away.

    Osadabe has massively frustrated me in the past for performances exactly as you detail above. However I have to say I don’t recall him been as wasteful on Saturday as he has been in the past. In fact, I thought he did ‘ok’ and in his last 3-5 games he’s been better than he has been. Maybe the luxury of Saturdays scoreline clouded my observation on this occasion???

    I don't believe you've been out on the lash all day.
    This post is well written with no grammatical errors.

    You also have to question why he can't spell our centre forwards name correctly after seeing his name constantly flash up on the BBC football scores pages.

    O'Connor had absolutely nothing to do apart from clear the ball for our goal, which he left to the keeper who flunked it. He wasn't impressive just because we didnt notice him.

    I didn't notice Yann in that game either but apparently, he's integral to Harrogate staying up this season.

    O'Connor was nowhere near Walker for our goal, he was on the back post area and Walker was in the middle of the goal upload_2023-9-25_11-51-38.png

    The one that's already the wrong side of his man? Yeah, that sounds like O'Connor

    The Harrogate fans say he’s never had a bad game for them.

    Probably

    Excellent summary of how I think a lot of our fans currently feel @Smartmart@Smartmart

    Callum is at Hartlepool. Not sure he was a striker? Who is McGoldrick?

    Exactly my point. If he'd been further forward with the keeper on his line, then O'connor could have cleared the header. He was doing what he does well. Hiding.

    Halliday and Stubbs were both there and should play. Pattison and Chapman probably don't make it though!

    Apparently Songo'o walks him through the games.
