This season with just Hartlepool to play we’ve won 8 of the 22 home league games.
Last season it was 4 wins from 23.
The season before 12 from 23.
I make it 24 wins from the last 68 home league games.
Strange that Barrow's home form has deteriorated since players now stay overnight before a match.
12 wins from 45 matches.

Barrow won 12 from 23 the season before staying over.

Those figures might not be correct as don't know the exact games stopped over but staying over doesn't seem to help the team.

I think teams come here and know how we are going to set up and play and they set up to counter that. Creatively we are good but I still think we should score more from the sheer amount of possession we have in games, but I think its game management that really lets us down at times. I have lost count of being on top in games, only to come undone spectacularly. Can you remember the Gatehead game earlier in the season, first half Barrow moved the ball around so well, but we couldn’t score, ...so we make mistakes. We got beat.

Re: BARROW v Dover match thread

We were on the back foot as soon as Anthony Jeffrey came on. You can see what pace brings to a side. Very quick and frightens the life out of defenders. I have no idea how Dover have found themselves at the bottom end of the table but that last 20 minutes or so was possibly the best passage of play that I’ve seen from a side at HS this season. It was like a switch being pressed. We were poor to be fair, but the spirit and determintaion they showed, given their league position. You can only applaud that.

Re: BARROW v Dover match thread

I think there is a strong meassage in there about the culture / mindset at the club. It's got to change from one where we look down all the time and ask how many points until we are safe, into one where we should expect to win home games, that we should expect to compete at the top end. That needs to happen for us to become a top side in this league. It's one of the biggest challenges we need to take on.

Re: BARROW v Dover match thread

Passionate interview with Evatt

Very clear message. 11th is not where he wants to be. “Some fans may be happy with 11th, the board may be happy with 11th, but for me as Manager of this football club, it’s not good enough”

Re: BARROW v Dover match thread

I don’t think we were cruising at 2-0 and as soon as one went in it was only going one way. You could see it unfolding on the pitch and sense it in the crowd.

Re: BARROW v Dover match thread

Full credit to Dover, who totally out played us second half and thoroughly deserved their win. Direct football with strength and pace. You can’t beat it. Best 45mins of football from an away side at HS this season. We had no answer.

Oh for a direct player with strength and pace like their No7. He had jet heels, what a turn of pace he had!

I don’t like to remind everyone but our home form has been pretty rubbish.
