We are now officially in mid mid table having won as many games as we've lost. Onwards and upwards
Looked at those clips as recommended by Stroudy and just saw a player left hopelessly exposed by a weakened back line. Against The Shrews we had Sweeny Key and Grounds as a back 3!I'll tell you the first one the doubters all point to is the thirty yarder at Argiggle. What none of them look at is the fact that nobody shut the bloke down, there was a gaggle of 7-10 players in a block right in Jamal's eye line and the first sight he had of the ball was when it skidded off the deck around the penalty spot by which time he had little time to react. You could look at the first one in similar vein, Collins not shutting the ball down but I expect the doubters say he should have got hold of that one.
I remember him getting criticism at the time for those goals. I didn't really think he deserved it then and having looked, I still don't now. I think we have had two very good goalkeepers in a row that have slightly different attributes but have been very good for us. It will be interesting to see what Jamal is like with Stubbs in front of him as it sure made Cam's life easier in the second half of last season.Looked at those clips as recommended by Stroudy and just saw a player left hopelessly exposed by a weakened back line.
