SG Post match reaction

A very honest and accurate assesement.

Saying the same as we've said in the stand.

Speaks well and honestly...sounded hurt and as baffled as we all are about the inept first half performance...and only said 'as such' twice...

Not that anyone would have asked him but i would like to know what he saw in that first half to suggest nothing needed changing.

 

We was getting battered in midfield.

Spot on.

Can't fault his honesty and you can tell it's hurt.

Well said Stuart Gray, an honest assessment of the game.

Agree with what he said but not once did he acknowledge his own fk up.

 

Making 5 changes from a decent win at Hudd?

 

Martinez over Kirkland?

 

Maguire CM?

 

Hoof ball straight to Wood and Morrison?

 

And the double subs?

 

Sorry Stuart, some of the blame lies with you on this one.

To be fair the hoof ball wasn't a tactic it was blind panic under pressure.

Absolutely. Very few players showed any composure on the ball tonight/

He was bringing subs on, then we scored.

At that point, he should've told them to sit down again.

That was baffling.

As soon as we came back out for the second half, we were much better and more than deserved the equaliser. Unfortunately, the double sub slightly reduced our momentum just when very little needed changing. Don't like to criticise Gray, but there were one or two poor decisions on his part tonight.

I think everyone was caught out tonight first and foremost by Charlton's gameplan.

Get into them early, don't let them settle, quieten the fans down etc etc. I don't think anybody expected it. On the pitch especially.

Like rabbits in headlights.

The subs was a bizarre one.

At that moment in time after Best had scored the only change that was needed was getting Maghoma off for Helen. At least we'd have kept our shape with 30 minutes still to play.

They gave it a bash second half. 

But for all the changes made, odd subs, handball goal for them, the phantom Wednesday goal and their escape from a poss sending off I still think we lost that game ourselves in the first 45.

 

We started so deep and invited them in.

Look at the start of the second half and our backline is 25 yards higher than the whole of the first 45.

But when you start as slow as we did first half is then trying to gain momentum is so much harder.

The subs made sense to me.

Until I realised Adofe was stopping on - I'd have subbed him after 5 minutes.

And, I'm being serious - I bet he didn't need a shower, put it that way.

You didn't have your best hour tonight . 

 

Bad team selection, got the tactics wrong , got the goalkeeper wrong . got the subs wrong , apart from that it was ok .
