Thanks for that report Lucy.
How often this season have I read "1st half we where the better team by a country mile" but you do not win games by playing for half the match.
I cannot blame Owers for laying into the team after the game. They deserved it by the sound of it.
At the end of the day it is the players who make the difference and sometimes it is only one player that changes everything.
Look at last season. Kieffer Moore arrived result immediate impact.
In most games this season the difference between the sides is fairly marginal.
However things are now getting very serious 8 points adrift of safety and Sutton away on tuesday.
Taking Barrow's far superior goal difference into account, we are actually 9 points adrift. The next four games are Sutton (a), Aldershot (h), Leyton Orient (h) and Tranmere (a). I think after the Tranmere game we wiil be even more points adrift. Desperado is right - seasoned players like McQuoid, Myrie-Williams and Murphy have been out on loan so many times, they don't give a toss about the clubs they're playing for as long as they're getting paid. In a month's time, they will go back to their parent clubs and not give TUFC a second thought.
Ruari Keating is going through a lean spell, as all strikers do, but he is more likely to make things happen than any of the above named trio. I'm becoming disillusioned with Owers. He is turning out to be one of those managers who plays his own signings, however poor they're performing, ahead of players already at the club when he was appointed.

If we were playing so well in the first half as Lucy and co suggest, why did Owers change the formation?
Seems we were playing well but missed a few chances. If he wanted to bring on Murphy why not do a
straight swap with Myrie Williams

Nicholson had a lot of faults but I can't see how he could have done any worse.
All we have heard in the last month is that either we are not rubbish from our manager , or we are playing well and are much fitter and better organised under GO than Nicho . Well that is utter bollocks of the very highest order.
I don’t care how pretty our football is as long as we win or don’t capitulate with a spineless whimper..
I am not a stato but I’m pretty sure Nicho squired more points in his last , say 10 or so games in charge compared to our current management .
In fairness to GO and MK though , TUFC is geographically in the areas end of nowhere in some people eyes and therefore our location is prohibitive in signing decent players from up country.
We needed a decent haul of points from the games in October as I said . And now we face Sutton next and as relegation prospects we are nailed on.
Great escape part ?
I hope so but doubt it .

No wins on a Saturday this season
No urgency off the pitch this season, in order to get the right personnel at the club
Apathy is destroying the club and its fan base, roll on the Conference South!
Life is like TUFC. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.

GO and MK's record is awful. For all the improved performance levels etc, it's a results business and they haven't delivered anything near an acceptable points return.
Of course Nico may have been able to achieve similar results or better. However, at least attendances have held up and there's been some praise around the way the team has played under GO. That's the only positive I can find tbh.

18 Nov 2017, 17:14I wish our support would stop being so disrespectful to any the teams we lose to in this league.It was only AFC Fylde today, it will only be Sutton United on Tuesday etc etc. We have no right to beat any team in this league as we are f***ing sh*t, we will probably lose at least once to all the other teams the way things are going this season......
Absolutely agree with all this; it's been like this since silly bollocks appointed Farcegreaves and looked forward to 'more winning football'
Not a fucking clue within the walls of TQ1
as to how to approach life in this league and the problem will be taken out of their hands soon when relegation is confirmed after two successive seasons of getting away with murder and then awarding a silver feckin' salver for it.
It would beggar belief at any other club let alone a former Football League one.
Knocked the nail on the head... 'within the walls of TQ1' - what the heck do they bloody do all day, every day??

How far we fall.
6 years ago today we destroyed Plymouth at Plainmoor. Now we expect to lose to clubs like AFC Fylde.

It does feel like a copy and paste job at the moment reporting the matches. 1st half we where the better team by a country mile, creating numerous goal scoring opportunities only for the final touch/ball go begging. 2nd half we where so poor and inept. Once again the winning team wins by the there total amount of shots on target. The only answer is we need a striker or too to covert what we create. It really is fine lines. But if you can't score when on top it will come back to bite you. We are not a poor side, we are a side that needs help upfront.
Aside from that the ground and infrastructure was impeccable. Great example of a real owner maximising revenue with the club at heart. I actually felt jealous of what they have. Nice to meet Gulliball today and as ever Super Nicky Wroe.
good to see you again mate - and Gulliball! not seen him since barrow away in 2008!
agree with your report. there was some poor performances - luke young wasn't good - he struggled to beat the first man with any set plays.
lovely ground and facilities - apart from as nwyellow said having to wait to get into their sportsbar!
