Thought it was a really good performance ,defence done the job ,no messing about just clear the danger ,midfield were in control ,andy cook was a right handful for their defence .Cant argue about anyones choice for MoM ,the icing on the cake for me was cooks performance and what he said in the interview about wanting to be here

Very promising display we were on top for the majority and should have won it, need to kick on for next game

Midfield seems very creative compared to last year


Borderline trolling from those two

Nothing borderline about it.


Oh Dry your eyes Bell boy , it’s a message board to voice your opinions is it not ? Was I impressed with what I saw yesterday not at all , will I been tuned in watching on ifollow paying my money next game ? You bet I will


Haha.

We were an unfit/unhappy team flirting around the wrong end of the table, and that game would have probably gone down as a scrappy 1-0 defeat last year

It's too early to say for sure, but yesterday suggests we've vastly improved our main issues: namely an absent midfield & shaky defence. We still have key players out & Bowery was never signed as a 20+ goal striker.

The main issue & focus for GC was to sort from the back & work forwards, and given our preferred forward line was absent then I can perhaps see why the scoring side fell short. Could be better, but could be a hell of a lot worse for an opening game of the season


Keeper looks like the best we've had for a while since Marriott.

Rawson and Meneyese both looked solid and tbh at times Rollin reminded me of Pearce just more agile and quicker/ better with the ball.

O'keefe is just brilliant, got back as much as he got forward.

Clarke won the ball well and knew when to play it and when to go long.

Maris, showed the difference between himself and Khan already, looks promising.

Charsley also improved and chased everything, quite good at winning the ball back.

Bowrey, will do damage against sides in this league.

Cook, brilliant... fit, chasing everything down, winning headers etc just missing a goal simple as that.

That’s basically What I think. A good performance. We deserved to win the game in my opinion . Players look a lot fitter.

Cook, Maynard, Bowery and Rose are 4 established league strikers, they'd likely walk into 80%+ of sides in this league. It's a tough job to keep them all happy with their game time. Then you've got Reid, a young hungry lad wanting to make a name for himself in the league. It'd be a bit silly for GC to play 2 up top and then put 3 strikers on the bench, especially considering Perch is on the bench and Sinclair has done very little (if anything) wrong so far. With McLaughlin joining he won't be happy being out the squad completely so we need a bench space for him (or Benning).

We need to have 1 player who is classed as trained by the club in matchday squad so Sinclair is all but guaranteed a spot somewhere. It wouldn't surprise me if we start going into games without a substitute goalkeeper.

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice dilemma. This is a good squad, after one game I'd even go as far to say this could be that one extra step needed after Flitcroft's 4th place finish. What we have now is basically what we should have had last season. Ask me again in 4 or so games time to get a real handle on our squad and capabilities, we've still got 2 good players to come in in Maynard and McLaughlin who are behind the rest of the squad.

I'm optimistic about the season. Yes you can argue we are 3 games into the season and we've drew 1 and lost 2 but it's clear to me that those Cup games were treated as friendlies, the Preston game interrupted our pre season preparation so was treated as such. The man City game to the Tranmere game had 5 changes to the starting XI and 6 players not even in the Tranmere match squad.

I think under previous management, and squads, I'd have been worried about how we'd keep them all happy. But feel more confident that they all know the role they play and we can play to their strengths, and GC is more than capable of handling that pressure from players. It's very clear that it's down to the players to show why they should be included.

I like our strike options now. One thing that Lincoln did extremely well in their promotion season was being able to switch their style of play very quickly with 1 or 2 subs. Sometimes you need to be able to lump it up to big strikers, other times it's nice to pass it through.

I'm the same as you, optimistic for the season. I hope we're more consistent, but I think we have had much better pre-season prep for fitness (Cook being prime example) and our 11 yesterday was much more balanced

Really pleased with how we played, loads better then what we showed in pre season, we looked strong and organised, midfield looked like it had legs and quality. Cook did really well too, We still have Maynard and Rose to come back in also Mclaughlin too, good squad.

8 games a month will need 4 strikers.
It's great to hear about fitness being so good.
It's going to be a hard slog for any footballer.

Most players completed 11k+ on Sat...not sure how that compares to 'best practice' but sounds good! Would be interested to see how many k we were doinf last season, cant imagine the likes of Mellis doing anywhere near that!
