Excellent first half- high pressing game which gave Town little time to compose or build any momentum. Top drawer goal from Rogers.
Second half we simply gave them 5 yards, no high press, time to apply pressure and eventually it paid off.
Not sure if that was tactical or simply sub conscious...
Cracking game of football- two teams absolutely committed to attacking, flowing football. Both teams with some high quality players and it showed. Best game of the season we've been involved in (if you were a neutral).
Clearly missing the influence of Bridcutt just being on the pitch-...
Good result today.
Not our most fluid game (seems the pitch and wind put paid to that) and Wigan certainly pressed hard which, particularly first half, regularly prevented us from getting into our stride. 1-1 Half time was a fair score.
Thought we were better 2nd half, had more control...
Challenging first half.
Accrington showing why they are in top 7.
Imps rotate squad and new players struggling to find the rhythm and pace of the game in defence.
Too many players trying too hard now we are a goal down (Rogers and Johnson particularly) so taking one touch too many, forgetting...
We are starting to look like FB Banter. We've lost a game after playing the kind of football you only see in the PL.
For the record, goals scored this season (top 6) - goals by club top scorer in brackets
Such a long way to go but everything, so far, is shaping up to beat the 1981/82 4th place finish (our highest finish in third tier of English football since the removal of regional division 3 leagues in 1952).
Is this the best Imps team I've seen? 1981/82 was my first proper season watching the...
Reminded me of Donny away last season (even though we scored that game)- nothing quite flowed or dropped right for us and a draw might have been a "fair" result but football isn't about what's fair- it's about who scores more than they concede.
It's football, it happens. Tuesday next
The numbers of fans paying to watch PL at £14.95 is astonishing, 100,000 paid to watch Liverpool vs Sheffield Utd on PPV......100,000!!
I think it is more about Montsma than Jackson. Maybe he is growing into English football and that coincided with Jackson's dismissal but Montsma looks much more comfortable next to Welsh. In my opinion. Which is all it is.
Have thought that myself- Montsma looks even better in a partnership with Welsh. Has more confidence going forward and on the ball too. Their partnership has looked more solid than Jackson/Montsma (not that we leaked goals with those two either)
That's the real nub of it- cracking start to the season, not quite at the races today but neither were Hull on Friday (who hadn't even conceded a goal before Fleetwood). It's football, it happens.
Onto the next game....
Tactical- Roughan is still learning his trade and we lost to much ground down their right hand side. Tayo really tightened up the 2nd half and was an unsung hero who helped the team put in a cracking 2nd half
