Feel like I'm in The Twilight Zone or summat, we've a striker scoring a goal every other game and folk want him dropped. The mind fucking boggles.

Here we go again. Lad's played a handful of games and in some aspects looks a cut above what we've got. But already no better than league one at best. He's a teenager, with plenty of time to

I'm surprised Thomason is getting criticism. His emergence has to be one of the few successes this season. Playing 9th tier football in October FFS. Not afraid to get stuck in, looks to play it f

Nah

We deserved something

We only deserved something if all the possession and chances turned into the occasional goal. We were massively ahead in possession stats in the first half but couldn’t turn it into goals. Doyle needs to go see a sports psychologist to convince him he’s a striker. In fact, scrub that, it’s me who needs convincing he’s a striker.

Imo Darcy would bring energy & enthusiasm to our team and he always wants the ball. Anyone who thinks he couldn’t handle Div2 is just talking bollocks imo, he was one of the few shining lights in what was a miserable season for us in Div 1 last term. I can only think theres some sort of personality clash with I.E. I feel for the lad, he deserves a chance this season.

That's a bit shitty.

Yes he missed a couple, but the keeper made some great saves, one cleared off the line. He won pretty much every decent cross in the air, even when under pressure. 

The one in the second half was poor, but he was there continually, and no one else really got into the right area to attack the crosses.

He stuck at it though, and was instinctive in getting in the right place for the equaliser.

Without doubt the most natural one in the squad and we'd be fucked without him.

A bit shitty? It’s a good job he’s so prolific in front of goal. Without his goal scoring prowess I’m sure we would only be drawing games.

Well put, but that one on the line after watching the replays, one or 2 inches either way and it's in, cracking clearance tbh.

Kind of proves my point. Definitely shitty. 

Most prolific one we have, only one there to miss them, but of course you can only mock.

You do realise we'd have lost today without the goal.

Contrary to some on here I thought Cheltenham were decent hardworking & organised they seemed to have more players on the pitch at times.

Plus they had the little annoying twat that most teams in this league seem to have playing up top.

Add to that ours is a decent pitch to play on unlike the usual shitheaps they are used to week in & week out , it gives them a bit of a lift.

Whenever we attacked even at our ‘quickest’ they had men behind the ball.

Anyway it was the best home 45 minutes that we have played , mixture of bad luck good goalkeeping & bad final pass meant 0-0 at HT.

Their goal as bad as it was came against the run of play.We definitely lost our way after that even the belated entrance of Arthur failed to galvanise the team & Isgrove switching didn’t work.

At the end of the day the tenacity of Arthur saved the day , why he wasn’t starting baffles me after Tues nights effort.

Young  left fullback gave us some balance but the other loanee guy shouldn’t have started ahead of Arthur.

Can’t figure Evatt out , he is a contrary individual.Then again a lot of managers are.

We need a result next week to get some momentum.

Not disputing that because I cant think of a good half we have played this season at home.  But we only played well for about 15 minutes, nothing happened for half an hour and as someone else said we kept passing it back.  So its a real indictment of IE if that was as good as it gets, I can think of some bad seasons but never have we failed to have a decent half at home by mid January.

Is he really, well probably in the squad, but that not saying much.

All I see is him scoring tap in's, missing a lot of chances and anything form any distance he rarely gets on target. I struggle to see how he was top scorer last season with the form he has shown for us. Virtually every other team has a striker who has scored more than Doyle!

However he not the worst of out problems and seems to be a grafter so will give him that, but natural goalscorer I'm not having.

He had an off day definitely,  but still scored . In fairness to him he works his bollocks off and normally with threadbare service to go off , not forgetting his tracking back and chasing down yhe channels.

He should have had no opportunity to clear, was a free header, 4 yards out? But yes defender did do well, our striker didn't.

Yes.

Lad works hard too, moving away from centre too much early on to help make things happen. As we started to dominate and he got more central we caused them loads of problems.

Dunno what some are watching at time. He needs more help and supply, but it seems if he's not notching every time he shoots, he's crap.

Fonz isn't fit to lace his boots.

And do you realise we’d have won if one of the others had gone in. I get their keeper had a blinder but if a striker puts the ball out of reach... 

pours seem to use keepers as a target to aim at!

Why?

A looping cross that he does well to win. Not a free header.

All you see is him scoring tap ins?

Well fuck me, what a cunt eh? Lineker, fowler et al made a career out of being in the right place at the right time. Our lad does it, and its a cause for criticism.

Fucking hell.

Of course it was a free header the keeper came and missed it ffs?

If he had scored 20 tap in's then I may be inclined to agree with you, but a JT that boy is not

Quite possibly. 

You assume anyone else would have been there to put it on goal.

Pathetic suggesting he's not a striker.

When I saw the replay, I thought he should have powered the fucker, but he just makes sure he hits the target, which he does, took the safe option and paid for it, but really didn't do much wrong with the header from a striker perspective.

What we know we don't need is a vanilla midget who is as weak ac a kitten. Darcy would be overwhelmed in this division. 

Good point.  Better get Thomasson, Crawford and Isgrove to muscle the opposition out of the way.

Watch again. 

I did and still showed me the keeper runninh out and missing great cross from Isgrove and Doyle has free header inside 6 yard box with defender no where near him, and missed?

Can only think IE doesn’t rate darcy or something has happened behind the scenes the lad certainly did ok in L1

If something had happened behind the scenes he wouldnt have been on the bench so many times, he would have been given the Taft treatment.  I wouldnt be surprised if Darcy ended up at Tranmere with Chino.
