Is it still Evans out ?

I suppose after today the manager is a superb tactician and will take the stags to League 1....despite fans calling for his head after Cheltenham ?

I've been critical of Evans. Because he has been making poor decisions.

However today his game plan worked to perfection. Ditching the diamond that hasn't worked helped.

Butcher and Atkinson in midfield won the. Battle. Butcher added some much needed physical prescence.

Rose had his best game for us. Mirfin and Pearce were excellent.

Not pretty at all today, very little football played but a great fighting performance and one that was very much needed.
The Stags are for life, not just for cup finals. (or Liverpool).

I think the comment made by one of our fellow posters was taken out of context, nobody in their right mind would seriously say SE should have gone after Cheltenham , however that was a mystifying and disastrous result against a team 4th from bottom. So jumping on the I told you so bandwagon is a bit out of context, people should be allowed a different opinion without being shot down.
For me I am happy to have a healthy slice of Humble Pie, no problem with that at all.
anyone who was there today though would have to say that although it was hard fought, the first half was not great, typical local derby stuff.
Second half a mistake leads to Danny scoring, and yet again County collapse big time.

Let's see what the next game brings eh, before we think everything in our garden is rosy. Consistency is required , but today, oh yes it feels great again!!! :mtfc:

Never called for his head, I stated that even when we've picked up points, the football and performances havn't been great so a loss was coming at Cheltenham.

Today the football was still very direct but we had an energy and purpose to get amongst them and they didn't like it. After the first went in through their mistake, they threw the towel in. Can't fault the effort and intensity today at all. Imagine how much better we could be though if we coupled that with utilising our flair players more by playing more football.

It was never SE out for me, whether we won or lost today.

Could have easily been 5-0.

Could the bad performance midweek be down to the fact we had County just after and a virus in the camp.

I'm not being confrontational, I'm just realistic. This is fourth division football. It seems to me that you (as well as others) expect football akin to the likes of which Arsenal play ? PS don't take things so personal, just chill a bit.

I'm sure that MacDonald would be disappointed to hear that we were direct and didn't play much football. He took the ball forward again and again, with Sterling-James also using possession well. But in a match like this there was always going to be a battle in midfield, and after we won it you could see players start to pass along the ground more instead of just having to do what they could. I was hoping to see a spirited performance rather than a pretty one, and that's what we got - but there was football played in there too.
In any case, it was entertaining stuff.

I'm not expecting Arsenal football, but I'm expecting more than just lumping it and trying to pick up second balls when you look at the types of players we have. It's the best squad in our history, not the best 11, but certainly a squad of strength.

Dearden had a thrown together squad that he had to chuck young kids into to fill out because he had no option other than to do that.....turned out to play the best football we've seen in the last 20+ years, and that cost naff all. So is it harsh to expect more?

Evans is right when he says the best this side will play will be after christmas, if we can get up there around christmas we'll go up. He knows what he's doing.

This is a fans discussion forum, looking back at the post Cheltenham match comments the vast majority were offering reasoned debate. Some were more critical than others, but the majority were merely stating frustration at the teams recent performances and playing style (considering the rumoured financial backing of the manager)

We should never be in a situation where this debate is stifled by certain elements of the local media constantly berating us or looking for 'an angle' because they are too idle to write an original article.

It's our forum, with its own characters, a varied cross section of fans, and amongst us there will be differing opinions, disagreements, and the odd bit of banter and light hearted insults.

They certainly did. I was under no illusions that County would be like that either. It's been said that they're not a dazzling team but just very well organised. Nolan is a Big Sam disciple after all.

We were better than them today, but so we should be given the different spend. I'm not saying we should be walking the league either, it will take time.

I just can't see people flocking back to the Mill if we're still playing ugly....it didn't happen in the Conference when we went on a record unbeaten run.

All we want, is not only to be successful, but to have the crowds and the whole town behind us whilst doing so. I'm sure we agree on that, because if it happens, there's no telling how far we could go given the ambition behind the scenes.

I never thought 'out' but can't say I am overly impressed by his team after the stink he caused over Murray's recruitment policy, especially as the previous regime seems to have gifted us our best striker. Great result today, but for me the jury is still out on Evans. Not sure he knows his best team and the chipping and changing is too much.

Stagmanrob, I think you need to realise we are league 2. Also the whole town will never be behind us. Just enjoy what we are and what we've got, is my advice. Despite his obvious flaws many league 1 and 2 clubs would want SE as their manager.

Over 7000 in the mill today, we beat the league leaders 3-1 in an entertaining game.

A great response from the team and manager to the midweek defeat which sent this board into meltdown.

However, you think we should win anyway as we've spent more, even though we were playing the form team of the division.

Evans can't win when people are hyper-critical and look at the world with a half empty glass and expect us to be knocking the ball around like Man City.
