TEAM NORTHUMBRIA 2 : SOUTH SHIELDS 0.

Post by passtheball » Sat Dec 08, 2012 9:10 pm

A frustrating and most disappointing result today, that with other results sees Shields now eight points off safety with real relegation problems. No disguising the extent of the situation, and how now indeed to rectify it is the problem of management to avoid the drop. A drab first half of even play without any appreciable highlights worth recalling in the bitter cold, saw Wightman shoot narrowly wide on 10 and the same player miss a great opportunity on 12 to open the scoring, and Northumbria hit the post on 15. Feasey was seen to be pushed to the ground on 25 but appeals for a penalty were ignored. The home team took the lead on 40 when Shields lost the ball on the edge of the home defence, and from the ball being lifted up field, then collected and a poor challenge evaded, a shot on goal then struck a Shields player and was deflected past the wrong footed Courtney. Shields played considerably better in the second period, save for a crazy few minutes spell when Northumbria again hit an upright and contrived to miss several scoring chances as the Shields defence dithered clearing danger. However, Shields continued to miss great chances with Kane, Ford and Burnicle all guilty of simply glaring misses, when it seemed easier to score than miss. The best shot of the match was by Feasey in the 75th minute which produced a tremendous diving save to deny him what would have been a great goal. Late in the game a full home hand on ball in the box was seen by all and sundry. an easy decision for the referee, who looked across at his lady lines person, whose flag remained motionless, and despite loud appeals he then waved play on. The ball was booted up field. a home shot on target followed, Courtney spilled the take, which then fell nicely for a home forward to put the result beyond doubt. One just about gives up when such happens. Tuesday evenings game result will now tell a tale no doubt in more ways than one. When great chances to score and win games as todays are spurned, never mind penalty decisions that go against you, luck only cannot be blamed. For whatever reasons both Paul Robinson and Lee Bell were not present today, despite earlier information to the contrary, and Wayne Clarke was reported as being ill. On the plus side, new signing Jordan Mellish did play well, unfortunately some others around him did not. Second half substitutions were Sweeney for Kane and Burnicle for Bell. A and late in the game Anzevui for Chapim. Its a pity that the team that finished the game did not start the game.
1. Courtney. 2. Rue. 3. Pickering. 4. Ford. 5. Mellish. 6. Chapim. 7. Feasey. 8. Smith ( c ) 9. Kane. 10. Wightman.
11. Feasey. Subs. 12. Sweeney. 14. Robinson. 15. Stoyanov. 16. Burnicle. 17. Anzevui. Assistant manager David Hagan has left the club, due to extended work commitments and his replacement is Glenn Liddle, to whom a warm welcome is made.

A draw was prob a fair result. We lost the game in midfield today and we got done for not finishing our own chances throughout the game. Burnicle looked lively and more threatening when he come on and must surely start the next game. Smith struggling in midfield, especially with the inifective Chapim, who to me does more harm than good throughout the game, along side him. Smith would be better on right in place of Bell, who was also inifective. Seb and Marshall may have been more effective in centre mid. Jordan and Ford played well as two centre halves, but as mentioned, midfield were poor and gave no protection to back 4. Tuesday's game is a must must must must win after the other teams results today.

Team selection is the managers choice, and we can all be managers. I just wonder why Smith, who is not a midfielder was played at 8, instead of his usual position of right back and behind Coe, instead of Rue who had an absolute stinker, and in midfield Anzevui was not brought on until the final few minutes, and also why Adam Bell, who was ineffective I agree was preferred to Coe and with Feasey not on his usual preferred and more effective other wing. Play to one's strengths is a usual maxim, and plus maybe in the absence of Lee Bell who was according to the information I was given expected to be available, a late change in this situation with work apparently determined otherwise, to say nothing of Paul Robinson we all ask .... So we had what we had, and with also Clarke unfortunately absent through illness. What was on the park on the day was not able to get something out of the game, in spite of a decent effort in the second half. I also thought that Shields were worth a draw on the balance of play, but four really good chances were missed, and for that we did pay the penalty.

you couldnt make it up really

all these so called better players who arent available for one reason or another
if you were to draw a diagram you would see

factory production down-performance bottom of the production table--reasons

broken machine not able to perform- reason--- not maintained properly generally motorr not driving machine-who is responsible for the machine working? the motor

solution-replace the motor with a one that does work

you might even want to sack the factory manager who bought the machine in the first place and hired the maintenance staff

I wouldnt be happy if the "board of directors" were in charge of my factory

you couldnt make it up

Dissapointing result again with Shields being punished for missed chances and a couple of mistakes. Also got to mention their keepers one handed save in the second half from Feasy absoloutley superb

On a positive note Mellish looks to be a real good signing with him and Ford looking solid.
Burnicle looked a real direct threat alongside Sweeney when they were introduced, would like to see him play 90 minutes.
Pickering gets better every game, his all round game is excellent and was desperatley unlucky not to score in 2nd half.

Ramsey and Soulsby back in training, get the full squad on the pitch and results will start to happen.

Onwards and Upwards The Mariners
