People will always have different opinions about games/players but I believe that generally we are very happy with the team and the club. The first half today (without taking away from Oldham) was a shock and we will hopefully get some reaction from the team to it. Limited playing budgets require players to be adaptable so the struggle to find the best team for the day goes on.

As for the rest of the league, we need someone to peg back Keighley. With the game in hand we have (against Oxford?) we are still in the mix but as the only team to beat Keighley (3 times if you include the league, the cup and the friendly) then we are going to need some help from other teams!

Thought we were very poor today for long periods of the game as opposed to poor in short periods of the game as highlighted by Duffy in recent weeks. Showed very little control of the ball and some woeful defence at times. Oldham did not even need to go round the edges. Not going to argue that the best team won but it would have helped if we had showed up in the first half.

How in Gods name do you construe my post as being sensitive Colin? I posted for a bit of banter with Class of 63 because I thought his assessment was interesting, and no one else had posted Get a Life!!!, just a bit of fun. Read it again, but put your light hearted hat on when you do.


Kind Regards

Baron - Please do not take offence. I suspect Colin was referring to the earlier MickHornet post "So you have us down for 8th, we have just beaten the Cru away and are 2nd, will go top with a win at Keighley.Utter nonsense."


The post came from a discussion of the "skewed" fixture list as no all teams play each other - in fact York specifically play all of the bottom sides twice and miss out on 4 games against the higher ranked teams unlike the rest of the "top 8". The table assumed that from here on in if all the top 8 were equal, even though York are lower down they could end up second.


This point I believe was lost on MickHornet..
