Re: Bromley v Barrow Match Thread

Now that was a superb performance. Defensively, as an attacking threat, to a man we were excellent. Make no mistake, Bromley are a decent side with a decent manager but we made them look below average today and they scored with one of the very few times they managed to get in behind us. Thoroughly d...

Re: Lancashire FA Senior Cup

The bottom line is I feel(rightly or wrongly) that I have been done out of a trip to Deepdale but what does that matter I am only a supporter. Would you really want to watch a Barrow second string take on a Preston youth side in a competition that nobody cares about, in front of about 100 people in...

Lucky run of away fixtures for me. Woking, Aldershot and Ebbsfleet all within reasonable car trips! Strange as it seems, I thought today's performance was the worst of the 3 matches
I would agree with that.

Re: Ebbsfleet v BARROW match thread

I doubt we'll get an easier 3 points than that all season, genuinely surprised at how bad Ebbsfleet were. It was almost like a pre-season friendly at times. So comfortable from minute 1 onwards that it's difficult to give any opinion on our performance. I've got to know a few Ebbsfleet fans in recen...

I always though that was at the Wukkies. There you go,,
Chairman's cup? No, we won the President's Cup at Wukkie about 3 seasons later. Think that one went to extra time from memory, but not penalties.

Re: Team and prediction oldham tues

Have we won a game on penalties before? I can remember us losing a couple of games on penalties (Goole in the 80s and Dover in the Trophy) but can’t remember us winning on penalties. Chairman's Cup final at Harrogate in 2000 (maybe 2001?) and an FA Cup replay at Rossendale the following season are ...

Re: Aldershot v Barrow Match Thread

Well deserved 3 points, although we've definitely played better and lost this season. Aldershot were woeful. We were entirely comfortably defensively all game, much more so than I've seen us in any other game so far. That was until we went 2-0 up, when we seemed to invite Aldershot on to us and they...

Re: Woking v BARROW match thread

Another one we "shouldn't have lost" but have. Almost a carbon copy of every other game I've been at this season in many ways (Wrexham, Stockport and Halifax). It's getting beyond a joke now. First half, reasonably even but for the first time this season I saw real glimpses of us beginning to put to...

Thought Dixon might have been mom some good saves and good handling. Good 3 points in the end but was a nervy game
Really? His handling was excellent yes, but he didn't have an actual save to make.

Re: Stockport v BARROW match thread

Well stop them getting the chance to lump the ball up in the first place. That is where the defending starts! not the last line with Dixon and the back 4 under constant pressure. Who in midfield is wrecking the build up play? Who is the tough tackler? But you're basically saying stop them having an...

Re: Stockport v BARROW match thread

Yes we need cover at centre half just like every other position but I dont think it is the root cause of our defensive frailties. We need to be stronger defensively as a unit!! The nearest man pressing the opposition player with the ball, doubling up on this in the middle third and stopping teams d...

Re: Stockport v BARROW match thread

Overall, I felt neither side could've complained had it ended up a draw. Having said that, whilst possession was fairly even first half they would've been out of sight had it not been for Dixon with one save in particular being the best I've seen from a Barrow keeper in a good while. Second half, bo...

Re: Wrexham v Barrow

He didn’t look too slow when he raced 80 yards up the pitch and presented Angus with a golden opportunity, do you think ? Fair comment, although at the time I didn't think he exactly 'raced' up the pitch at a great pace and watching the highlights has confirmed that for me. I just though he got exp...

Good news is that fullbacks were excellent
You think? I thought Barry did OK but Brough was awful. Slow, weak, got caught out of position a lot and gave posession away too often second half.
