We appeared last night to have made a conscious decision to not to bother with a defence. Hence their goal, but seeimg as we regained the lead immediately from the restart it didn't matter.
It was ok v a Ryman League club but if we repeat that against the current league leaders on Saturday we should expect to be thrashed.

Brackley Town vs Leyton Orient
Solihull Moors vs AFC Telford
Stockport County vs Maidstone
AFC Fylde vs Barnet

So we must be 4th favourites? Expect O's and Solihull to field weakened teams next week.

Maidstone won last night only because Salford played their reserves/ youth team. 11 changes from their previous match.

Christ, it was an entertaining game, and we won. Some of the passing and link up play was very good to see and the goals were superb.
Anyone would think we were shite and lost!!

Earlier in the season I thought our defence was solid but there was no way to score goals. Now it seems that it's the other way round. Who, if anyone, is our defence coordinator?
... All we have to do is keep winning the next game ...

On the same basis, we're a mid table championship side.

But also taking into account that we are only a couple of points away from the NL relegation zone and leaking goals for fun (against opposition at each level we play). I'm concerned and can't believe others arent aswell.

When it comes to the league I'm extremely concerned.
Deep down everyone must be.
It seems we're only up for the cup games.
We even suffered the ignominy of Carshalton's fans singing 'going down' to us.
As someone posted yesterday, after the next two games we will likely be in the bottom 4.

The opposition fans chanted something uncomplimentary to us? Oh no, what a disaster. I don't know how I'll get on with my day now.

That said, I hope Currie is making this exact point to them this week re league games.

Last night wasn't an easy game - whenever you have that much possession, whenever you are allegedly "better" than the oppo (purely based on league played in), whenever you are expected to hammer someone 6 or 7, that's actually trickier than it sounds. It rarely happens unless you're Manchester City, everyone becomes frustrated, cool heads and professionalism required generally.

That's what I suspect DC was looking for - a professional performance. I thought he got it off most of the players as well, keeping the simple passes going, keeping the ball, trying to fashion an opening. Being critical, I thought our finishing was woeful and that's the bit I reckon DC will be unhappy with.

Also - Shaq looks knackered to me, poor bloke's trying his heart out but just looks tired. Was slightly surprised when EMC went off as he looked the fresher of the two.

We havn't been playing particularly well, but if we continue playing as we have been in the league, and average the same amount of points per game for the games we have in hand we'd be 11th.

With goal difference we're 3 clear from the drop zone. On average, to be behind Dover 4th bottom would require us to get zero points from the following 8 games:

Solihull Moors (a)
Sutton United (a)
Barrow (h)
Halifax (a)
Gateshead (a)
FC Halifax Town (h)
Hartlepool United (h)
Harrogate (h)

That's based on Dover continuing their average of 1 point a game over the next 3 games.

Those to travel to every game, fair play to you having to travel to Solihill, Halifax, Gateshead and Fylde away in next 5 games...

But i'm not worried for a while. Normally 45-51 points would see you safe. Let's take the top amount and aim for 52. That's 17 points in 19 games. 49 points would have seen us safe last season - that's 12 points in 19 games. We're OK.
