Very dissapointing, BB did a decent job on us but 2-0 flattered them 3 or 4 chances 2 goals but of course our mistakes cost us the goals. Full back caught square beaten too easily for the first, a bad pass back and a bad keeper clearance cost us the second goal! We huffed and puffed but wasted our chances, poor shots, bad headers really poor free kicks near goal - sorry but need a new free kick specialist. A lack of pace up front and on the wings did nothing to help our cause in opening them up either. We have a glut of central midfielders but few (if any) wingers and a lack of goal scorers. Amongst the fans it seems obvious that we should use our wing backs with 3 central midfielders and two strikers and we need a striker with pace (second look at Brewster today but too early to tell if he is the answer), who can at least threaten defences. Today BB played us well with a very competive midfield denying us space to play and once 2-0 up it was always uphill. We can play better and will but surely we do need to make some changes to our squad and or system. Our MOM River Humphreys IMO.
Here we go again, people wanting to be a manager and seem to know what the problems are! When you look at the game as I do! And this is my opinion things never seem to fall for us! I spoke to a couple of the players at the end of the game! One or two of them were not fighting fit! But still gave commitment to the club and the team. We had enough chances to win 2 games, we beat Nantwich 2-nil last week! I don't see positive comments on here when we win! Just lots of negativity when we loose! I spoke to one or two of the fans yesterday and we discussed the gamesmanship of Bamber Bridge IE wasting time at any opportunity. So when you look and think that it was a bad performance as a supporter I was not unhappy. In my opinion on the day I do not feel BB were any better than Witton.
I spoke to a couple of players after the game & found out a couple of them had been ill most of last week & weren't 100%. I also thought BB keeper was wasting time from about the 10th minute, I've never seen anyone take so long over every goal kick. As previously said, BB defended for there lives and I cannot remember a save Greg had to make but BB keeper 2nd half was very busy. We will play a lot worse & win.
BB were 2-0 up early on! And they did time waste all the time gamesmanship! But apart from that, I thought they deserved to win maybe 2-1 and us missing chances is our fault and we do it WAY too often. I thought it was a forum for opinions about all things Witton if you don't agree then you're welcome to post no problem. I enjoy the counter opinions, sometimes gets you thinking about some of the issues and your own views. And of course I'm a manager before during and after every game isnt every fan? lol UTA
