    You're probably right, there isn't much going on with a weekend off. Good show by the Haven team though until the inevitable fitness took it's toll. No idea if that post is correct about the fans antics are correct but pretty embarrassing if it is. Would you have posted the same thing if it was a thread praising a good effort by the lads on the pitch?

    Agree pal, although the team performance wasn't great v Oldham some of the comments on here were ridiculous. UTT.

    Are you starting a campaign David?

    Hemel V Town predictions

    No point having a kicking game when you can't play your sets out so that needs fixed first. But yeah it's def something that needs work, when you see that all top tier teams almost always compete for the ball in an attacking position some of our last tackle options are woeful at best. Then on Sunday we did get a repeat set and Tansey stands on half way when they have the wind behind them.......

    Oldham reaction

    Sorry I can't agree with that at all. When I played a win no matter whether you expected to beat the team or not was excellent for team morale. Belief and confidence are massive things in team sports, and sporting history proves that a team winning every week play with belief & confidence and often punch above their weight in this respect. Leicester City in football is a perfect example of this. Having a couple of wins under their belts will do the team the world of good.

    Sandy you dark horse!!!! I thought you were under the influence of something when posting on here, but always thought the something you added coke to was liquid not a mirror. Explains a lot...... 😂😂

    Oldham reaction

    I know was an awful day and we were easily second best and very disappointing, but it's still not the end of the world ( Calm down trouty those are serious words lol). We are in a very competitive league and lets face it Oldham did play well today. The DR is an easy blame, neither lad played poorly but I think most would agree that any DR player taking the place of a squad player has to be a marked improvement on what we have already. We were short of a prop so no arguments with one of them but surely we should be playing our own players if the difference made is debatable. This wasn't the reason why Oldham won though was it? We are without Penky who seems to be so important with managing the game and mixing the attacks up as unfortunately Newts doesn't appear to have that in his bag to the same level, and although he's got slated because he didn't offer much at least Leatherbarrows distribution was sharper from dummy half to try and get some width. Gordon is showing what a big miss he is as nobody else can fill the gap for the threat he is on the pitch. Dawson was also a miss for what he brings to us to give a stonger front row. I think the fact the ref wouldn't allow a quick PTB stopped either team getting a roll on, but because their speed was superior in both defence and attack it made a bigger difference against us as Newts had to pass all of the time as the markers were set, so everything was very slow from dummy half and by the time it got to the fringes it all got smothered. The last 15 showed the intensity that there should have been from the start, and how many clean line breaks weren't supported or finished off? Small margins change games. So with a few players back and if DR is used it has to be the standard Patrick brought to the field the season isn't over yet by a long way. UTT

    Oldham reaction

    We were second best in every dept today and Oldham deserved their victory. They were very lively and even dominated in the pack. As usual our game and last play management was awful, line speed was slow in comparison to our opponents, and defence was very poor in patches. When JD came back from the sin bin he lifted the team with his play, but where was the intesity from everyone beforehand? Not a single kick was put behind their backs that were moving up quickly in defence in their own half, instead we consistently passed to players with nowhere to go because they are trying to play the set move out or just gave it to Olly. I'm starting to lose patience with Jordan, I've backed him all the way so far but he was a passenger today and was rightly subbed. Olly was outstanding as usual, but he can't do it all on his own.

    Town v Oldham

    Looking forward to today's game against another very tough opponent. I think on our own pitch we can grind out a win. Hope our last play options imrove from last week where we struggled to keep the pressure on NWC and caused ourselves a bit of hard work. The ref has to be an improvement on last week's abomination and the weather is looking good. UTT!

    Yeah I honestly get that you don't like DR, I have my reservations too and of course you are entitled to your opinion. But when you don't get a bite in a post to stir things up ( as you know it divides opinion) you just keep going. You have already conceded that it's the club and coaches choice so why keep at it? Are you that fragile you are just looking for somebody to agree with you? Or is it more schadenfreude with you and you enjoy it? So I'm cocky because I dare to question your motives? Or is it because you know that I know?

    I'm sure if you drop Leon a message he'll meet up with you and go over it all to try and get your approval.

    I'd guess by his own admission he hasn't yet pulled up any trees but this weekend is the perfect opportunity to put that right. There could be a couple of others that feel the same...

    His dad is very ill so they won't be able to put any timescales on when he will return as it will be a private matter. But what information is on there is brilliant and very welcome im sure you'll agree.

    Reevaluate Havens Form

    Ok if you say so pal, but it doesn't read like a looking forward to a tight season ahead in league 1. Why not just quote one of these quotes you found so offensive and challenge them on it instead of starting a whole new thread on the apparent injustice you felt? As I've already said it was a fantastic result and the club will benefit financially, good luck with the draw.

    Reevaluate Havens Form

    Fair enough marra but it's obviously a wind up that a brand new member starts a new Haven topic looking for a bit of reaction, and guess what he got a few bites. Not quite as subtle as certain others.

    Sunday

    Unfortunately it seems we are going back to the bad old days with information and news. We at least had twitter pics from Gordon on his account after his injury which kickstarted a report. Hopefully Scott is OK but it looks like we now rely on players for snippets of info if somebody is injured with Foster & Penky two prime examples. What is wrong with saying they are out through injury and maybe short or long term? Surely as the squad is announced the opposition coach will have an idea who's playing and make adjustments to the prep work already done anyway. We are not having any luck with injuries again thats for sure.

    Squad for NWC

    Firstly and most important i hope Scott's injury isn't as bad as it looked and he has a speedy recovery. We are doing it tough with bad injuries this season. But on a positive it was awesome to see Scott Rooke back out there. NWC are a decent team aren't they? Very well drilled although I didn't understand their last play kicks either. We made hard work of it but a win none the less. Olstrum my MOM but Patrick wasn't far behind. Way too slow from the PTB and it killed us time and time again, we hit a ten min purple patch and got on the front foot that swung the game. Crashley has taken McGregors crown as the worst referee I've ever seen. We got some go for and against us, the JD one was ridiculous. Last gotta give credit where it's due to the noisy neighbours that was a superb result. Should pull them out of the mire financially too.

    Looking forward to today, fingers crossed Crashley doesnt spoil it and we can put in a big performance to cap a lot of the negative stuff on here. I'll be in the Shaun Weaver stand hunting for mice....

    By evading the question he just deepens suspicions of those who already question that he/she is a town fan. He never uses "we" or "us" when posting either.
