He was going so slowly that he almost caused time to start going backwards. Just a lack of confidence maybe. Did the biz with the penalty though 👍

Nice to see he had the confidence to grab the ball for the pen tho and what a penalty it was!

Johnson is good as a wing back. It’s when he’s LB that he’s a risk. Spence fantastic and I loved seeing Britt run on to celebrate with Fletcher. Shows he cares.

Great pen etc but wtf was Fletch taking so much time for he should have buried that 1 v 1!

True, I'm not even sure he'd have scored that had the defender left him.

Johnson has been excellent today.

And he's been disastrous the last few games.

He made Anglian Red's stream look like Usain Bolt

Credit where it’s due. That was a brilliant away performance against a very difficult team. Hard to see past fletcher for MoM with an assist and goal but shotton gets it for me.

    • The thread title is probably my fault - as @Changing Times says, I'd posted a thread asking if it was time to abolish the FA. Maybe we need to keep that thread at the top of the board, so the correlation between that one and this is more obvious? Then again, apart from the title, nothing that's been said over the last four pages would come as a surprise to anyone at MFC. It's not like we're talking about chasing SG out of town with pitchforks, or hanging an effigy of him from the Transporter Bridge. Everyone knows what we achieved in the Noughties, but there's been one misstep after another for over a decade. That needs scrutinising, and our supine local press clearly isn't up to the job. Incidentally, since people in positions of authority apparently read this forum, I'd like to say hello to anyone at Red Bull who's reading this. Your drinks are excellent, and we would be delighted if you bought our club. Pleeeeease?
    • Considering we've had to play the top four sides, with a paper-thin squad and none of our transfer deadline day targets plus several injuries in key positions, I think we've started really well. Even the best managers need time to work their magic - Aitor tightened us up defensively almost straight away (as has Warnock), but it takes far longer to work on attacking flair, intuitive passing and clever set-pieces. Also, the team's confidence will be rising with every battling draw, sneaky win and clean sheet. I've seen mediocre teams on paper go on incredible runs because confidence is high and so winning becomes a habit. I wouldn't bet against us becoming one of the league's form teams as the season progresses, especially if we can sign a CB, LWB and CF in January.

    • Judged on who we have faced I think we have had a much better start than a lot of us would have said earlier.
    • Interesting thread well done Smogzilla. Back to the game, massively important that we are seen as the dominant team and that we are an attacking team expecially at home. Need a win otherwise we become the draw king specialists. We are not a relegation candidate this season and not too sure where we can finish but I do know that we are not too far off being a good team for the division. Take it to Coventry and get 3 points under the belt
