He was obviously pleased with the teams performance and thought his team were the better team for 85 minutes.He is of course entitled to that view.I would however disagree completely with one thing he said.....I quote.....

"We came with a game plan and it worked perfectly"

Sorry John but it didn't.


Disagree - their fans booed them off at half time. Although we didn't have many chances, I would argue that we edged it without being brilliant. I don't recall them creating much either. The game plan was to frustrate them. The goal was exceptional and it is difficult to plan for that.

It is easy to read a lot into the score. Swindon probably thought the same last weekend!

Well if you want to split hairs - but both those goals were headers from corners. I suppose it could be regarded as open play the moment the ball touches the head but come on, it's a bit like saying that a penalty taker that scores after a rebound from the keeper is scoring from open play.


Not in open play is a penalty or direct from a free kick as far as I'm concerned. The ball is in play once the corner has been taken and is there to be challenged for. No different from getting on the end of a cross, is it? Question

Is that relevant?

Unless the game plan was to lose, it didn't work perfectly!

I remember one season where we didn't score at all in our first four league games. I think it was 05-06 when Stuart Douglas, Danny Ekoku and Steve Burton were there. None were prolific. We signed Daryl Clare shortly afterwards who was an improvement.

In amongst all the debate about our performance and how well Bobson did havent heard anything of how Jimmy Smith played, dont remember much of him in the JB commentary either. How did he do on Saturday?

Terrible season that - huge disappointments throughout although the job Hollins did was admirable.
