Aylesbury United Discussion / Just back
« Last post by harry the haddock on December 15, 2021, 11:22:24 PM »
and back by popular demand (well, Graham asked me to restart the tradition! ;D)
so am settled down with a nice large glass of Cotes Du Rhone, celebrating a well earned point against the impressive league leaders Bedford. Big strong side, with big names,big whining gobs, big wages and big expectations ; you can see why they're top. Played some very nice fluid stuff at times, quality shone through during certain periods of play , looked very solid defensively and was particularly impressed by their number 10 who generally controlled the midfield and kept them moving.
We however really raised our game and the level of commitment and enthusiasm matched the Ebbsfleet effort. In a way this was a similar match. They looked very good ,generally, with a higher class of player, but they tended to played in front of us and our sturdy defence was very rarely turned around. I suspect this was how Ben wanted us and them to play and i further suspect he got one over , tactics wise, his Bedford counterpart.
We took the lead when JJ rifled home following a corner (possibly the first time during the game that JJ had kept the ball that low, and that under control! :D ;D :D), but Bedford equalised soon after with a Rene Howe bullet header from a corner which was inexplicably conceded by Jake. It was a very open, end to end game, must've been very entertaining for the neutral.
After that Bedford had the best of the game but were let down by Howe's constant offsides and poor final balls, whilst we caused numerous problems with quick breaks , generally involving Max, Stobbs & Sonny (who,btw, hit the bar from 25 yards in the first 10 minutes).
Great team performance. Archie made some superb saves to keep us in it. Jake had his best game of the season by far and Harry was excellent (looks like he learnt a lot from the Ebbsfleet game)
JJ and Jack were a lovely, rock solid partnership, Jack especially being at his imperious best.
Riddick was awesome and just edged motm for me. Sonny, apart from a quiet middle third of the game, was at his best, constantly creating problems when on the ball. Difficult game for Pierce who was out of position and generally outmuscled, but he stuck in there and will no doubt have learnt a great deal.
Max turned their left back inside out, and the lad cut  a sorry figure when he was saved from his torment by being subbed.
Ayo, our ex Grimsby non scoring centre forward, again proved what a good player he is, but once again never really looked like scoring - so frustrating! He's a really good player, got all the attributes, but just can't finish. He caused their very good, strong defence all sorts of problems. Can't make my mind up about Jaedon, but what i do know is that he really put in a shift and on 1 or 2 occasions showed flashes of real ability. Stobbs gave a brilliant 20 minute performance when he came on and helped enormously in giving them something to think about and defend against, when it looked like it might be  areal backs to the wall final 20 minutes.
All in al they did us, Ben and themselves proud against a team with a wage bill about 10 times bigger - well done lads !

I wondered if Jamal had left Chesham a while ago. Not seen him playing for a while. Not sure if Conference South Level.

Jammers missed the start of the season as he was travelling.  Made a couple of appearances for Chesham when he returned.  I would agree about the step up, but good luck to him.  Always rated him more offensively than a reliable defender.

Jeanmal Prosper has signed for Hemel Hempstead Town from Chesham.

Callum Mapley was on the bench for Flackwell Heath on Saturday, so appears to have left Thame (Marcos Ushiro-Lumb is also back playing for Flackwell Heath at the moment).
