Abysmal defending - no-one challenging for headers, no-one closing down players on edge of area. Angry

I've seen worse challenges than Fabien's go unpunished - ref brandished his red card without any thought. There's less than a second between him blowing for the foul and his hand going to his back pocket for the card. Huh

Inept Only looked like Dawson had fight in him Defenders not marking anyone, ball watching no organisation on that performance a sunday league team will beat City


RE: Chorley - Tigermatty 2.0 - 06-09-2021

Just a total lack of organisation or ability in defence. Headless chickens. I’m stunned.


RE: Chorley - Gladfans - 06-09-2021

If we get some players in from higher leagues on a permanent basis they at least won’t be cup tied


RE: Chorley - Kitto - 06-09-2021

Doesn't look like anyone had a good game, I watched the first few goals on the highlights before switching off as it was too painful.

1) Dawson running round like a mad man in the build up first goal, doesn't stay on his man which means they get the cross in, and Piggot doesn't win the header then Galvin is the wrong side of his man.
2) Harrison misses his header
3) Harrison gifts them a chance, and Armstrong is out of position.
4) Harrison nowhere near close enough, Dawson & Sheaf too weak in the build up.

After that it was clear the heads had all gone. No communication, no structure, no fight.

Harrison is supposed to be our "unit" at the back, but his head is gone, same as Armstrong. Can they play with our U-23s/U-21s for a bit to get their confidence back up?


RE: Chorley - Prorsum Semper - 06-09-2021

Maybe a bit of heading and marking needed in training this week.


RE: Chorley - T-End is in sight - 06-09-2021

Reading this thread has reminded me how lame I thought the warming up looked for the defenders before the game. The 4 of them were in pairs just lobbing the ball to each other, one trapping it and passing it to the other, who then kicked it back up to the other pair. It all looked very half-hearted.

My thoughts exactly when I saw it. How often do we see opponents red carded for that kind of challenge. Never!

There were some decent finishes among those but you have to ask how they got so much space around the area to shoot. One goal was from a lovely cushioned header from a defender and another had two players unmarked on the penalty spot.

It would be nice to see us have two players on the poenalty spot mind instead of this lone striker crap that will ruin McClure.

You say that but I don't like him in centre midfield. I much preferred him wider like he was last year. He had the nous to get to the touchline and set up the strikers. I hope he's moved back there when Tommy is fit.

It didn't look a red card to me either, but let's be fair it would have made little difference to the result.

Of course but when I'm in attendance it's the kind of thing that really riles me up. I await the next instance against us and see whether a straight red is shown with such enthusisam.

I'd consider appealling that.
