Wanderers Ways - passion not fashion

9/10 Average Joe Blogs fans can see where our weak spots in the team are.

I never got us signing Crellin why bring Another teams goalkeeper here. Mathews sounded like he wanted to stay and Phoenix should have got him signed up for this season before approaching Evatt.

Three centre backs could work with the  wing backs. Again we have to ask about recruitment we have 8 on our books.

If Taft or Greenidge are not as good as Baptiste we are in trouble.

Both Mascoll and Gordon are at least 18 months off first team football. This is for me our weakest spot

Until Evatt can find a solution for lwb we will struggle week in week out

Comley reminds me off a poor Phil Neville. Never goes forward and commits way to many niggly stupid fouls.

The rest of the midfield are struggling  on form, but you would think Crawford, Sarcevic can only improve.

Up front we seem ok Fonz and Doyle have not missed chances, they have done ok with the service they have had.

Come Christmas time i would expect only 4/5 to start who started tonight

Deffo a turning point. Dug themselves out of a hole and the big money signings stepped up when needed. We simply couldn't lose that game.  We showed the fighting spirit the manager was on ab

That’s Med Junior

I agree. Mascol (for Gordon) Tutte (for Comley) 3rd one more difficult to identify If we are sticking with 3-5-2, back 3 and front 2 ok for me, so it would have to be a brave one and Darcy for Sarcevi

Agreed

If we had matthews or Alnwick, I'd give him a rest but he's getting no help

Alnwick out of contract - as are Howard & Lonergan. One keeper I quite rate also out of contract is Jordan Archer. Could be worth offering any of these a short term deal

I would have to agree on Crellin, should have caught the loose ball on the 2nd goal and gave far to much space to hit for the 3rd. He is gifting goals every other game at present and while we are not scoring, that means a defeat.

Imagine a packed away end there last night.

This players not pulling their tripe and being up for it wouldve soon changed on the road with some of our vociferous followings.

Deffo working againt us.

Crellin wouldn’t get in some conference north teams. I think IE actually signs players who he has seen have one good day. He can’t of had a decent scouting setup at Barrow and Tobias is just winging it.

To be fair, we’re not alone here, Liverpool bought Bogdan based on a cracking game he had at Anfield in FACup.

It's like an alternate reality that though innit. If away fans were allowed in it would probably mean coronavirus never happened and if it had never happened who knows where we would be... Barrow might never have got over the line and promoted in the end, we'd never have heard of Ian Evatt and David Lee would currently be getting slated by every man and his dog.

But yeah if we had fans in to watch that last night it would have been ugly, those stands were right on top of the pitch. That moment late on where Baptiste got chased down the line like an injured gazelle and tackled, he would have got fried for that.

I’m so pleased for Evatt after that result!

He’d backed himself into a corner with his comments after our last game so no wonder he was yelling after the equaliser. He ain’t daft, he knows where our weaknesses are and I’m confident that he will plug those holes over the next few weeks and months. 

We need to be patient, in a results driven industry that is hard but I really do think he will turn it round and in a few months those people calling for him to be sacked will look very foolish,,,,or I will 😁.

weve taken a chance with Crellin, we must av got him on a cheap deal, they turned down £1m+ for him so let’s hope he comes good!

So why did he pick Baptiste and Comley? Why has he persisted with Crellin when the lad just isn't good enough? He really doesn't have a clue what he is doing but there are players in the squad that can win games if they decide to turn up

On the very brief highlights, Kioso gets up well for a couple of headers, plus his headed goal.  After he won a few headers on Saturday despite his size, it looks like he might have that Stelios habit of popping up with some unexpected goals and doing his fair share of scrapping for 50/50 balls.  Overall looks a decent signing, has more to his game than Hickman from what I've seen and probably a better bet than Isgrove.

Aye that’s works well for us before.

How many times have weve turned it around with the whole away end going berserk at the players?

I remember when young Jussi was worst keeper we have ever had after Crewe game at home. Give the lad a chance. The manager is asking him to play sweeper keeper which probably is not his usual game. I agree though that we should of signed Mathews up but we didn’t. Hopefully he will gain a bit of confidence and be England’s number 1 by end of season.

The Barrow commentators on i follow last night seemed to rate Kioso very highly - they were quaking in their boots every time he ventured forward.

With his pace, ability & engine I'd be tempted to move him inside to give us a bit more creativity in the middle.

You want to best utilise his pace and athleticism in the middle of the park where there's less space?

Just looked at Remi Matthews on wiki, didn’t realise how few games he’s played throughout his career even though he is still 26

Really rate him, wasted on the bench at Sunderland and miles better than Crelin

I think a new goalie would make a big difference and would be my top priority
