I thought he had a decent game. He held the ball up well. SE picked him and Digby out for praise in his post match interview. Poor penalty from Danny Rose, won't be taking another according to SE. All the back four played well. I rate Bennett but I wish he would take his thrown ins quicker. You can really sense the frustration from the more experienced players.

Can't see where the Anderson praise is coming from tonight. Good effort against the post, but should have scored when Digby put him through.

They were the only touches he had of note that I can remember.

One thing that hasn't improved, is the quality of set pieces.

Its so frustrating not to threaten from corners/free kicks, I accept conditions weren't good tonight but we should be looking for better quality balls that actually test the opposing defence.

Wasn't nearly every one of Byrom's assist from last season from a set peice? I swear he had quite a few

We must have had a doz corners tonight plus numerous free kicks in "dangerous positions" how many of these did we threaten from?

If we clear the first defender, then a corner is basically a pass to the oppo keeper (it'll be interesting to check the full match video, to see if I'm just a frustrated old bloke, but were pretty toothless from set pieces IMO)

Set pieces are one of our biggest weapons. At some points last season it felt like all our goals came from Byrom's free kicks and corners. The second goal at Crewe was a Byrom free kick. With Pearce, Bennet and the added threats from Diamond, Mirfin, Digby and Spencer, we should continue to be strong in this area.

A very very disappointing defeat. It was a great chance to progress to Round 2 and play one of the bigger teams.

Still early days but sure will get better with more match time.

Digby didn't put Anderson through into the box, it was Atkinson... are you sure you know who Anderson is? Haha

He does all the simple things well as that's what we need

I'm absolutely certain it was Digby. He took on a player on the edge of the box, slipped it to the left, to Anderson who was unmarked, his touch was poor, his shot was going wide but the keeper saved it anyway. Check the tape.

Keep those eyes peeled pal.

Is it any wonder players get praised or slagged unjustly when you can't recognise them? :lol:

Not too disappointed about the loss. DR should have done better with the penalty. But this was my first sight of the new players. I was happy with all of them. I think we will do well this season. COYS.

from my report:

On 14 minutes, a good move from the Stags, Atkinson to Digby, who slid to Anderson on the left, who got the ball onto his right foot and he shot low towards the near post where the keeper saved. A tame shot in truth from Anderson which was probably going just wide.

I think we can take many positives from the games so far. We played well last night in appalling conditions. The pitch was my man of the match though! Money well spent. Will save us having to have games abandoned and postponed. I just hope we can get the ball to Sterling James feet instead of trying to lump it to his head. He's an exciting player to watch.

For someone who couldn't make the game, what I don't quite get is why we'd lump the ball up to forwards given their shortness.

Appreciate the pitch probably wouldn't have induced passing football as you'd like it but maybe keeping the ball better or trying to run with it?

What was apparent tonight and will come as no surprise was the lack of a finisher, all the good approach play counts for nothing unless the ball ends up in the opposition's "Onion Bag".

We had no time on the ball in midfield, sometimes there were 3 rochdale players round byrom or atkinson and digby... they made it hard to play.

During the commentary Martin started to talk about Paul Broughton's plans for the Bishop Street Stand, but he switched back to the action before he'd finished. I'd be interested to hear what is being suggested.

It would probably be better for the club to do a press release so any plans for the Bishop Street are officially in the public domain.

I thought the plan last night was to get the ball forward quickly for the forwards especially OSJ to get in behind their back line. Unfortunately their defence was very good and intercepted nearly all the forward balls.
We might win against Accrington next time.

Think we can guess that one day, probably in the next 2-3 years they will at least pull it down and tidy it up.
If we get into league one, they will build something there.

Thought the new advertising, new nets and goals, dugouts and astro around the pitch has already made the ground feel more professional along with a cracking pitch.

Also think the massive scoreboard is done with...
