Newport game, the future and failure on tv

Postby Kyleaston » Sun May 12, 2019 11:30 pm

We just cannot seem to win on tv, 4 games shown on tv and drawn 2 and lost 2, just find it strange how Sky Sports are making out that Newport were better when we edged second half and dominated extra time.
Will be interesting what effect it will have next season. Just as I thought I can download a full match to see Mansfield win, we bottle it on tv again. Just be interesting to see what the effect is next season, Notts County couldn't recover and got relegated. Hopefully it will not be the same for us. Bring Paul Cox back please?
If we would have played like that in the 1st leg we could have won instead of drawed though but too much defending has cost us. 1st half seemed like too much hoof ball with no support and then we brightened up. I think it's a harsh way to go home though we had a shot off the line and Hamilton and Walker missed chances. Newport were just more clinical especially in penalties. The one time I wanted Logan to make the save with the penalty and this time he couldn't where there would be no rebound concerned.
We had a go, but it's been a cruel and to the season and one that you just wonder what effect it can have on us.
Good luck to Newport, if they are that good, I expect them to win in the final though. I know Newport were formed before the Welsh League, but it's controversial when we lose against a team who shouldn't be in the 'English Football league'.

Why on earth would we want to bring back Paul Cox?

Newport where far from clinical in open play. Fact is they missed abucket load of chances

The difference was their keeper saved Walker's penalty and Logan almost saved one of their penalties. Small margins.

Fact is we should have finished top three, but the poor display against Stevenage and the goal we gave away early doors at MK Dons cost us. I don't think we would have been good enough without wholesale changes in league 1. I also think who ever goes up in the playoffs will struggle next season in league 1 unless they invest heavily in better players.

We need to get over it and start again.

Paul Cox football could make your eye's bleed at times, but he had a adopted a system he knew worked at that level and assembled the right squad to play that way.

He couldn't adapt to the higher level unfortunately.

Newport hit the bar the post and Conrad Logan made another incredible save and they missed 4 easy chances...they played better on the night overall but will struggle in league 1 .. but so will Bury and Mk Dons ...Lincoln will buy a couple and probably be OK...Stags would have struggled with the current squad
