Aylesbury United Discussion / Re: Just back, just so predictable

Maybe that's why in all the games I've seen we have looked so jittery at the back? Even jack looks fractious and frazzled in his on field behaviour. Is jordan Jenkins that big a miss?

Pretty much spot on in your assessment there. Only thing I'd add is that the excellent flowing football WAS there at the start of the game, until we conceded that stupid opener. If we'd taken one of the chances at the start the confidence would have remained and it might have been a different story.

On the subject of the first goal, luckily Weathers went on to have an ok game but a couple of shaky moments in the first half made me wonder why Hoppy hadn't kept his place... are we really rotating goalkeepers?! That went really well for us when last seen in 1999  ;D

Aylesbury United Discussion / Just back, just so predictable
« Last post by harry the haddock on October 06, 2020, 11:04:35 PM »
You know the scenario. Ducks build up a head of steam on the pitch, interest is sparked, regulars big up the quality of the side and how well they're doing, big following goes to local derby
.the result? Yes, you guessed it team fails to turn up, gives its worst performance of the seasonality side and we lose.
About as predictable as night follows day.
So frustrating, especially as Berko seemed to show the exact qualities we have showed in so many games. They seemed to knock us out of our stride and there was very little of the flowing football we've seen.we seemed to panic, looked unsteady at the back and too many long aimless balls.Ben must be as disappointed as he was elated Saturday night
No lack of effort , but if we are going to challenge at the top you have to able to close out a game when you've gone unexpectedly 2-1 up with 10 minutes to go.
Sad to say they had a collective off day with ball Jones and Mot m deacon being the only exceptions.
Ps once again an opposition player was the outstanding player, their number 11 ran us ragged

I wouldn't disagree with that, but I'm sure I wasn't the only one relieved to see him get the red card, knowing an outfield player had to face the penalty.

Too true, I was Ian!

What an absolute treat it was to be there yesterday. Despite what the Premier League claim, watching Football at any level has always been about entertainment for me. Yesterday was right up there in 50 years of attending games.

Daventry caught us cold with 2 excellently taken goals, yet we carried on playing to the game plan and did not panic. I loved the non-stop effort everyone put in and the result was thoroughly deserved. One man stopped us from winning at a canter, who deserves a special mention. Their goalkeeper in the 2nd half was absolutely brilliant (and fair play to our lad who went on their Twitter feed to praise him). The applause he got when sent off was genuine and I hope that he reflects on this today. Rarely does an opposition player get that response.

Ben Williams, thank you for putting together a team that plays such attractive football. Winning is great, it is not the be-all, end-all; leaving the ground feeling like I did yesterday is everything (and it would have been very close if we had not won).

Looking forward to Tuesday.

And West Ham won. What a weekend fot you mate!

I agree with you mate, but I wonder how many were clapping in relief that we might just get the winner now he wasn't on the pitch! ;D 

Top performance from a keeper who I think will play higher than step 4 in the future.
