Hemmings signed for 2 and a half yearsVery disappointing. Sadly I am anticipating being still in L2 next season. This team is simply not good enough although losing two key players in Spearing and Glatzel has not helped. The former brings leadership even if his performances are mixed at times. How long a contract have we given Hemmings? We can dress it up, a great second half fightback but then.......
My guess with Hemmings is that although he’s scored goals elsewhere, I’m not sure our system suits him. He has to do an awful lot of running and has been playing with either Nevitt, Jolley or glatzel - all inexperienced at this level and the best option of the three is injured.Hemmings signed for 2 and a half years
I just don't understand this approach. Now matter how good defensively you are, eventually you will concede, you could see signs in the first half which is exactly what happened today and we only started to attack when 2-0 down. No matter what Micky says, we did not show any attempt to purposefully attack Newport until we were a few goals down. Long balls for Nevitt to run onto, Hemmings a spectator at times must be frustrated by the lack of service.They fully deserved to be 2-0 up with rovers offering absolutely nothing going forward. The front two were spectators.
I am not sure it will turn, we are on a downward spiral and I doubt we are going to get out of it.Just watched Micky post match. To be fair he makes no excuses and admits we were second best.
I’ve calmed down a bit now and let’s be a bit positive. We’re still in the top 3 and surely our poor form will turn at some point soon
Our “style”/tactics are crap.The hosts lost their assistant manager this week who has followed ex manager michael Flynn to Walsall. We need to get something from this game, at the very least a point. A defeat and no goals scored would really add to the pressure that the squad must be feeling given our recent form. Plus we then have Northampton away after that.
micky often says post match that “we won’t change our style”. That’s a fair point, as it’s gotten us to the top 3 so far. However other teams managers often comment on they know how we’ll play and I do wonder if we’ve gotten a bit predictable In recent weeks.
