Default ...but there is hope for the second half

After my wildly successful best selling thread on our half season failings I couldn't resist looking forward.

I thought yesterday was a deserved win, not a lucky win. It was also the first game where two fairly small changes look like having a long term positive impact on our attacking play.

I first saw Roberts play for us in the Nantwich friendly. He looked like a very good crosser of the ball and a competent footballer. I think he showed that yesterday. His combination with Rutherford looks like it might develop into a genuine attacking threat.

Kelly has started to drift inside more. It hasn't produced anything spectacular, and was pretty ineffective at Chester, but I'm starting to believe that, with Jennings fit, they will form another reasonably potent threat. Kelly has got some magic in his boots, but probably not enough to dazzle from the centre.

I haven't been impressed with the little changes over the first half ,but I think there is now hope for better attacking. With a better player replacing Massanka/Reid WOW!!!

I disagree, Jennings crossing of the ball is fantastic at times. Kelly's part in that is to make space for Jennings, I think Kelly is a little unambitious at times ,but if a great cross comes in, then the partnership has worked. If Jennings gets ahead of Kelly then Kelly is usually there to recycle the play. Again I'd say he's been a bit unambitious doing it so far.

The January transfer window will be key to our success this season. Get that right and I think we will have the best chance of winning the league since we've been down here, including the infamous 98 point season.

Lets not forget Carrington's part in all this - I have been a big critic of him previously but his versatility, experience and 'old head' is invaluable.
Slotted in very well yesterday and looked like he had played LB forever.
Perhaps a better defensive option to Jennings although offers less going forward.
But DK hailed him as MOTM and in fairness he did a fantastic job against the threat of the Ebbsfleet wide men - could be a massive player for us in the event of future injuries or suspensions.

Why are you always so negative? Always having a pop at someone. Genuine question.

Another winger and somebody like Byron Harrison up top and it would further improve us.

I agree Pagl our left and rightwings are both weak, we have no one with pace down the flanks or anyone who can beat a man and get to the byline to put a good cross in.

Congy red thinks they work but seems to base that on Jennings ability to cross the ball - which is just a small part. Neither Jennings/Kelly can take players on and get in behind and for me they don't work together. Kelly doesn't really make space for Jennings he merely runs out of steam and waits for him to catch up .

Its about opinions though and for me Rutherford is better at LM than he is at RM - he still does not get to the by-line and cross the ball but at least he does the box to box work and provides an outlet.

The hope and need for 2nd half of the season is at least 2 better quality players. We know budget is there for at least 1 and the WST plans for Christmas raffle should fund the 2nd and DK himself can free up some money with Reid returning and hopefully Boden out on loan for a 3rd.
