Prediction Competition - Latest Table by Malton Seadog User: Malton Seadog

Posted: 15/10/2017 at 20:51:21, 39 views.

A bizarre week. Almost everyone predicted a Boro win or draw, with only two or three predicting a home defeat (me being one of them).

Also, only ONE person (Stockton Seadog) was anywhere near with the crowd, and he got with 25! Everyone else went for 1,200-1,600 or thereabouts.

As such, a grand total of FOURTEEN points scored in the entire league this week!

Away fans’ noise. by Steve

Massive credit to the Hyde United fans yesterday - when they scored passers-by outside on Seamer Road must have thought the home side had scored it was that loud! It was amazing seeing so many loyal United fans enjoying a great result for them - you couldn’t help but feel delighted for them. Just think how good it must have felt to silence 2,000 home fans which is what they did for all of the second half.

I was in the South Stand, and while I saw them cheering and singing, the sound didn’t carry at all. Must have been the wind and/or acoustics. Shows the need for the upcoming roof on that end.

Yes so “empty" feeling that I had to stand behind the away dugout during the second half to get a decent view! (actually surprisingly good view, except when the subs stood up or when the tunnel was pulled out near the end)

Didn’t even feel “empty" when less than half that number were in tbf.

….you know what your options are.

Ashburn Road is far from perfect but it’s back home, there are short term plans to address issues and if you prefer the tranquillity of the swimming pool end to the fire and brimstone of the Gas Works End/Bike Shed/Curva Shed terracing then you’re hardly going to experience, and appreciate, the full noise and passion and mild chaos and boisterous quality contained therein.

Che is the new Tree by seadog365 User: seadog365

Posted: 14/10/2017 at 23:51:46, 142 views. In reply to 'Get a Grip'

the ‘voice of reason’. I can’t begin to work out where each of our opponents since last Autumn were in the table at the time we played them, but all that really matters now is this season. So far our only league defeat was against the team nearly every other team will lose against. Sure, we’ll lose others, but it won’t be too many, provided we stick together.

As for “bottling big games" I take the point about Ossett, today etc, but you could argue we didn’t bottle Workington, nor either Stratford game (eventually) and as for the cup final, we were big underdogs anyway. We’d just finished 3rd bottom of the division below the one Marine were in, and we did very well indeed to get that close to wininng it as we did.

My vibes from afar… by willesden seadog User: willesden seadog

Posted: 15/10/2017 at 07:30:16, 149 views. In reply to 'Che is the new Tree'

First off, I’m absolutely gutted with the result. Even after 9 hours good kip.

I’m also hoping the post match jollities don’t cost the club when it comes to planning permission etc; but yeah it was the away fans, do we have proof they were at the game blah blah.

Man management takes many forms. Over the years I’ve been lucky to see it in football and high level cricket. I’ve even had a (unsuccessful) bash at it myself in local sport, and now have to look after staff at work. What I’ve come to realise is that bawling out your staff or players is the quickest route to losing them or the collective. I’ve little doubt of SK’s frustrations or that he has a valid point regarding the defending; but I wasn’t impressed with the interview. It was quick to point the finger elsewhere and even quicker to point out that the management had done their jobs properly. Mmmm.

Personally, I’d prefer that was kept behind the dressing room door; even if it does lead to a blander interview. I always remember how quickly the spells of Tim Sherwood at Spurs and Paulo Di Canio at Sunderland ended after they lambasted their players in public. The players do have too much power at all levels, so you need them onside.

I wasn’t at the game, but I spoke to regulars pre match. All said the same. Tyrone Gay bossed the opening match. High balls won’t work. Get it on the deck and try and get round the back. The bloke missed a year with a dislocated knee, so he’s probably very wary of twisting and turning. According to all reliable accounts, we hoofed it up towards him. Interesting to hear SK’s praise of him. Would he have been man of the match if we hadn’t played to his strengths?

I was at Stratford. They had two centre backs; both big and basic. We hoofed it up the middle. Apart from a couple of half chances we didn’t look like scoring until Nelly’s equaliser in that game. It was only in extra time when we spread play on the deck that the two big fellas were exposed and we took them apart.

At Skelmersdale, we got it on the deck and played it wide and took them apart.

A Boro team have an immaculate home surface to play the ball on the deck for the first time since Barney was groundsman at the Athletic Ground around the play-off season. The beauty of a 4G pitch is that you can trust the bounce and the roll of the ball. That’s why so much coaching is done on them. I’ve little doubt Boro have the personnel; although a quick wide man to compliment Max Wright on the other flank would be a bonus.

I see a lot of football on such pitches. The club closest to home is Hendon; who share a 4G with Edgware Town. Last season Hendon nearly went down in their first season in the ground. The manager has reassessed and now has a team that only launches it if there are no other options. Otherwise it’s pass and move; albeit it sometimes a bit too much. They’ve won every home league game and won lots of penalties because big basic defenders can’t deal with skill or movement on such a pitch.

It’s a huge home advantage if you use it right.

No panic. It is unfair to accuse the team of lacking bottle in the bigger games. The league record is good. Yet, nearly everyone I speak to rolls out the old adage of it’s the sign of a good team if they’re winning but not playing well.

Here’s hoping we forget the cups. They were a bonus. Promotion or the play-offs are a must this season; especially with the extra places on offer - although surprisingly enough there might be another six to ten clubs who also have similar intentions.

All booked up for Glossop and Hyde away.

Well said Willesden, I agree with all the points you make .

Collectively we need to keep things in perspective. Things at SAFC, both on and off the field,are a massive step up from where we were only 12 months ago with the potential of even better to come this season. However no club has a right to success and we all need to work hard for that by pulling together, which brings me to rthe SK interview :-

a ) As you say he should have kept his opinions about the players to himself

b) However, at this level I think he knows what he’s doing and although I was not at yesterday’s game based on what I,ve seen this season he’s right about where we are weak.We always look vulnerable in central defence both to crosses and also when teams get at us on the floor and turn the central two - Shields highlighted that last week but so too did Workington and Sunderland in the games I’ve seen so far - we also do not have a natural centre forward on the books of the right standard

Finally back to the scale of things growing massively since being back in Boro, our average gate in competitive matches is1379,
But unfortunately we appear to have attracted some idiots amongst that number, yesterday,s yobish behaviour plus the previous urinating incidents - we all need to have the backbone to confront such behaviour if we see it and identify those responsible

Willesden Seadog’s post might be a bit long but it’s well worth reading.

100% agree with hammering people in public (even though he didn’t mention names, the players in the dressing room know who he is referring to). Telling, as you say, that the priority seemed to be pointing out all the blame was with the players and the management had done their bit.

Which brings me to the next point, the manager must’ve set them up to play it long. Players at that level are good enough to do as instructed and play to a particular game plan, so that must’ve come from the manager. No surprise really as that was the same against Ossett in the play-offs - again up against two big, slow(ish) CBs. Yet no big centre forward to make it a logical plan.

Why on a pitch such as there is at the FLS we don’t make the most of the surface, I will never know. Fair enough when you go away from home and sometimes you need to play more direct, but it’s a carpet. Get it down and work teams ragged. In fact, the worst part about a 3/4G pitch is the bounce, even more reason to keep it on the floor.

Let’s be honest here, we will be spending a few £ on wage, SS apart, we must be up there with the bigger spenders at this level, so is the quality of player we are paying for getting for that money getting the side through, or is the manager actually doing a good job?

Che and tree we bottled it yesterday it’s as simple as that. First 15 minutes we should have been at them, but instead we allowed them a two goal cushion. It was too easy for them in a way, and for me boro are better than that. Just my opinion, but I think we will kick on in the league now

Limp display, but life goes on by filey1

Posted: 14/10/2017 at 19:40:58, 137 views.

They took their chances and we defended poorly and to be honest thats all Hyde did. In the second half we saw nothing of them, but they’d done a job on us. as we just couldnt stake a claim in it, we didnt pose much of a threat really, and you just knew today, wasnt goint to be our day. So bitterly disappointed, but theres masses to play for. I see we are still 4th, and we have a chance to have a pop at the codheads on Tuesday night, a win there might get the smiles returning! Listened to the SK interview and he is not a happy man, so I think we might be expecting some changes. Ross Daly was mano of the match for me today.

I was going to post a reply along the lines of “yes, look at where we were this time last year", until I looked it up on the Evo Stik archives only to find that this weekend last year we beat Hyde 3-2 at “home" in the league. Oh well.

Even so, I think we’ve made massive strides under SK and promotion to the EvoStik Prem was always our top priority this season.

Ant Taylor on commentary today (speaking to the Hyde lads at the end of the game) said “you’re through, I hope you go on and win it". I don’t think he was being sarcastic or anything but it made me realise how ultimately, for teams at our level, the FA Cup always ends in failure. Our priority remains the league and a 3rd promotion for the club.

Hyde are a good team. Not very entertaining, but very effective. I wouldn’t say they were markedly better than us yesterday. Agreed they defended well, but we could have had three goals in the first fifteen minutes with better luck. Didn’t get much from the ref either. For all Steve praised Gay, he was like an octopus, twice wrestling Billy to the floor in the box which could easily have led to a penalty. Definite penalty in the second half too, the #3 swung for the ball, had it nicked off him by Max and clipped him.

The ref was poo, in part because he had the potential to be good, Sounds mad? What I mean was that he reffed the 30yrds either side of the centre circle fairly well. He was consistent and firm. However as soon as the ball got into the penalty area he just abdicated from making making any decision. Fouls (especially the octopus arms approach) that would have been awarded automatically in the centre of the pitch were dismissed completely (he did this for both teams, but as we spent more time attacking, putting balls in the box we were affected more). It was probably just an attempt to avoid ‘controversial’ decisions but to my mind it means that ultimately he was a weak/poor ref.

Re Willesden’s post and comments about SK’s interview. I agree that it was bad judgement on his part and initially it annoyed me. However I think one of his gripes might be that so many high balls were used. It was noticeable that Wrighty often put crosses in on the floor, presumably to orders? But others didn’t and this was a source of annoyance? Could be wrong of course.

Battled 2nd half but not 1st half, not sure about our number 4, at least we created chances, not sure of the tactics at the back think we are so much better when we clear the ball and play in there half.
Roll on the game it was good while it lasted

Very few positives today, and choosing mom must have been nigh on impossible! SK’s comments are interesting. Perhaps he has banged on so much about the first and the last 10 minutes being the most important, that the players thought they didn’t need to play for the other 70 minutes! Poor passing, dire defending and average attacking. However, I felt some managerial decisions were suspect: why play the long, high ball so much? Coulo stuck out on the touch line for the first half led to frustration and made him less effective imo, why not make changes earlier when it was obvious that things were not working? What was the Thirkell / Valentine swap thing about?

Today was a golden chance thrown away, or should I say kicked into the air? But, we need to move on now and secure a top place in the league and I believe we have the players to do it.

The capacity is 2,070 and the Sheffield Utd game saw a crowd of 2,038. That one was all-ticket and sold out, so I assume the “missing" 32 must have bought tickets and then discovered they couldn’t make it, or were too ill/or had died. I would hope therefore we didn’t turn anyone away today if it wasn’t a sell-out.

Ha, this is funny.

This season was always all about the league, the cup was always a bonus. Won NINE out of 10 games - the other was a draw! - before being beaten last week by a team who are being bankrolled by a wealthy owner and will walk this league by a long shot, who could do a job at conference level, with players are on contracts. And then we lost today to a good team who will be up there in the table come the end of the season and wanted to reach the first round just as much as us. Us going through was never a foregone conclusion.

Any long term fan of Scarboro Athletic will be enjoying this season, there’s been some right stinkers in recent years and we had to travel to brid for the pleasure. We’re right up there in the table with games in hand over those above us and below. We’ve just signed a league level player on a 2 year contract. To ask “where is this season going” is quite frankly ridiculous.

I totally agree with what you say, but we should still have our say as to what we thought how it went wrong. It’s a cop out to keep saying, ‘it’s only the cup, we aren’t really bothered ‘cos it’s just the league we care about.’ I care about every game and don’t like losing. Fans are smarting from the loss, so there’s going to be negativity- albeit short lived. I think it is very short sighted of SK to think that the solution to yesterday’s problem is just to bring in another player to command the back. That’s what his Captain should do and usually can do. I fail to see how him sitting in the stand for 3/4 of the game helps the players on the pitch, especially when things were going so wrong - they needed leadership from the sidelines too.
