I'm skeptical of the tactic myself, but how did he manage it at Barrow if it can't be done in the lower leagues?

I really dont know!  I'd have to see their games and I've no intention of that.  But Man City and Arsenal finish in the top 6 of the Prem whilst cocking up at the back (not always resulting in a goal), so its still possible to make mistakes and win games.  As we did last night and v Bradford.

Keep up the winning mentality, that we as a club have lost.

I’d actually say it’s impossible not to

I still maintain that Assarsson is a great name

Here’s the thing about the way Crellin does the pass out; the opposition forward line know he’s going to do it so they just get ready to pounce on whoever gets the ball. Gilks at least mixed it up a bit. If the forwards were too close to his defenders, miss the defenders out and put it to the midfield or boot it long. Just don’t do the same thing where the only change is which defender gets the ball.

The problem with Comley, and it's something Henshaw is constantly picking him up on - and to be fair he's absolutely right - is that his body shape is always wrong when he gets the ball, he's always facing the direction from where the ball came from, his body is never opened up on the half-turn, meaning he can only head back in that direction.

Baffling that a professional footballer is guilty of something that u-10s are coached.

But the fault comes with Crellin giving him the ball. He had two players within a few yards so even if he’d been able to turn, he’d have gone straight into someone wanting to take the ball off him.

Fair enough.  My point was just one in general with him.

It was a stupid pass to him no doubt; but he made it so much worse by his atrocious play like he always does. Hopefully this will be the last we see from both Crellin and Comley

Watching it back, it looks like Taft actually gestures at Crellin to give it to Comley. And Comley actually does take it on the half turn and could've passed it to White but instead turns back into trouble.

Still a shit decision to give it to Comley whether he was told to or not. Greenidge was on his own in loads of space if we want to play out from the back, Mascoll too.

Think Crellin did start hitting it long after that but it kept going out of play when he did... 😂

I'd feel more sorry for him if he hadn't cost us so many points.

I can't help but think, if IE wants to play it out from the back, he will have told the players, the keepers in particular, under no circumstances play it out down the middle (that may or may not be how it works but, I can't recall many teams who play it out from the back doing that)

he had players either side of him

In about 20-30 years when we are reminiscing about the dark days in League Two in the time of coronavirus we'll be laughing at how shit Crellin was. 

Crellin and to a lesser extent Comley and 1 or 2 others, will be infamous blots on our historical landscape and none of us will have ever seen them play!

Comley was awful from those highlights and usual suspects. 

The highlights don't show the half of it.  They also don't show how bad White was either.

Having seen it back a few times I think I was harsh on Greenidge and a little too kind on Crellin for their second.  Whilst Greenidge could still have done a little better, and taking nothing away from the quality of finish, Crellin had absolutely no reason to be where he was.

That said, Greenidge was extremely poor overall.  Tried to play like Santos currently does but was a very poor version and doesn't seem to be able to use his considerable size to shield the ball.

Is “extremely poor overall” a backward step or an improvement on his last time out?

Was it against FGR where he was all kinds of shit?

He's not improved.

I know. I took a look at the FGR thread and he got plenty abuse. Most of it, I recall, was for jogging for the ball when Evatt had proclaimed him as a sprinter. I reckon I’d have caught the cunt!

I have no wish to see him play for us again.

Of all the signings, Greenidge is the most puzzling.  What a CV - loans to Ipswich and Port Vale and didnt play a game at either; 6 games at Ebbsfleet, 19 at Hemel Hempstead, 38 in 3 years at 2 Norwegian lower league clubs and got relegated at one.  And he kept Delaney out of the team initially.  I'd love to hear the rationale behind this signing, was he a mate of Matt Gilks?
