Chorley v Bradford PA

Postby Charlie Magpie » Wed Aug 17, 2016 8:51 am

A very convincing 3-0 victory for the Magpies, could have been 5 or 6 given our second half dominance.

Our 3 strikers are class performers and will hopefully provide us with lots of goals and entertainment this season. The back four look solid and recorded their second successive clean sheet, is there a way back into the team for Teaguey?

Is this the strongest squad of players we have seen at Victory Park for a number of years?

I do believe it is a very strong side but I just worry that we haven't got a good ball playing, creative midfielder in the squad! That's my only criticism

Agree with both the above posts, tremendous squad perhaps just lacking a ball player in midfield. Terrific entertainment last night, disappointed at the attendance, however, deserve much better support than that, should very 4 figures every game, come on folks get behind the magpies.

Great result and a dominant second half when we essentially blew Bradford away. Tremendous energy in the team and the back three look very solid. That suggests we might do better than last season away from home with the prospect of keeping a few clean-sheets and nicking a goal or two. I am hugely impressed by the skill and natural football brain of Jason Walker - I think we need to see more of him than a half-hour appearance. His effortless link-up play is first-class and his instinctive cushioned lay-off, perfectly timed and perfectly placed for Will Beesley to drive in the third goal, was top drawer. Sam Elliot of the NLP, as mentioned previously, may be onto something here in tipping Chorley as a dark horse!

Excellent points in all the posts here.
I think Sefton is an exciting prospect and doing really well, yet the tendency is to "hit it long" for his headed flick-ons -whereas with Jason there is more ball to feet and, against most CN defences, more chance of causing problems. Certainly good to have three class forwards to pick from.
I also would like the addition of a creative midfielder but they are hard to come by -perhaps we should try to adapt someone like Walker into this role ?
Will Beesley is another exciting player and should be encouraged to get forward as much as possible IMO.
Finally, agree with PS about the attendance especially with the club holding prices down again. If we can maintain this sound start, then the crowds should build again -I hope

By hec, lad, we used to dreeeeeam of a 790 crowd for an August Tuesday night attendance!

No doubt Preston and Wigan at home last night kept a few 'casual' spectators otherwise occupied, and the rare appearance of that bright orange thing in the sky may have prompted a few back garden barbecues. If we maintain our current form then the crowds will soon return. It's up to us to promote the great quality of football and entertainment value presently on offer at Victory Park.

Both Preston and Wigan away on Saturday, if Preston don't show any signs of improvement, a few PNE fans may prefer the goods on offer at Victory Park rather than Deepdale on a more permanent basis. As for Blackburn Rovers.............. Coyle gone by Christmas?

In fairness to the crowd, I don't take much notice of attendances until we're into September. We're still in the middle of holiday season with numbers away on their annual break. Sure, we got a good attendance vs FCUM, but then again that fixture will always be into four figures - who knows, that could have been even higher had it been played after the schools go back.

Fingers crossed that the team keep doing what they do on the pitch and we keep picking up the points, and I'm sure that four figures - or very close to it - will be the norm

Two clean sheets and six goals in three matches make me disinclined to worry at the moment about anything. The way we burst into life in the second half yesterday suggests Jansen is learning the art of the team talk. I always felt that Flitcroft's sides were capable of improving after the interval, and this is a promising sign.

Impressive start and agree that we need a ball playing midfielder to knit things together, particularly if Walker plays, as he needs the ball to feet. One point is that if Blakeman is fit he must start ahead of Beesley and Jarvo. His defends better and his distribution is much better, but maybe not quite as good offensively.

Blakeman was known as a dead-ball 'specialist' in his time at Hyde ... Maybe a penalty-taker too ?
