Undone again with bog standard set piece as we haven't much height I think against teams like this we should put Quigley at the front of the attacker's they wouldn't have scored if he had been where Kay was ( but Dixon has to do better)
We can't miss guilt edged chances like today and expect to win games hopefully just a blip ends this bad week as we started it frustration again!

Deflated. The Dover debacle destroyed all momentum on and off the pitch and has ultimately now cost the club a fortune.

Anyway onto Torquay.
Yes, very much a case of what might have been. It almost makes one believe in the legend of the gypsy's curse. Team on a roll, everything going so well, an incident far from Barrow and unconnected with football leads to a postponement. We might have beaten Dover in front of 2,500 and gone into today's game on the crest of a wave, probably with a much bigger crowd than we had today.

Even the cup draw might be considered a bit unlucky, as Solihull probably learned from being beaten by us earlier in the season, so they apparently had a game plan to defend solidly and hope for a breakaway or set piece goal.

We know the biggest threat we face every game.
So why are we not prepared for that threat?
We are. We face it every week and unfortunately today it was one of those that got through and was enough to win the game.

Cannot let this defeat get us down. It was a one off cup game and in no way shapes our season ahead. Would feel worse in defeat if this was a league game. The league this season is number one.

I smiled at Evatt's comment post-match when asked about the 2 games coming up at Torquay and Dagenham, "well, first off, we'll make sure we get there on time..."

Getting beat and losing the prize money is the worst thing about today.

There were one or two players that had a bit of an off day. Despite that I thought we played at about 80% of our recent performances and that wasn't through the lack of effort.

Mr Johnson the referee however tried his best but Sunday league standard shouldn't be allowed to take control of a game at this level.

Pretty disappointed the money would have come in handy.
The referee was poor but you make your luck
We scored a goal but he disallowed it off a foul on the keeper.
Solihull pushed and obstructed when they scored but if was .
They had obviously learnt from there defeat here

People around me said Rooney had a poor game but I think they nullified his role as they did with a few others
When we play physical teams like this Dior Angus is to a light weight and gets pushed off the ball easily.

1523, 26 from them.
Thanks... Slightly disappointed with that especially after the crowd last Tuesday.
Think people like yourself have very little knowledge of non league football, here’s a suggestion, buy a non league paper tomorrow and just get an understanding of how good that crowd was. Attendances in general are 25% lower at this stage in the tournament than normal home crowds.

Well I’ll play the adult who has followed this club for decades, we are currently having a fantastic era in this club’s time, but we still have individuals who come out with, “slightly disappointed “ come on get real.

Great factual based post mate

I’d have liked a few graphs to prove your point though

Mr Johnson should be promoted to the premier league with immediate effect. With VAR in use games would last so much longer for them............

We will play a lot worse and win. Numerous chances missed and their keepers had a MoM performance. Disappointing but not the end of the World.
