[QUOTE=Corner Flag;2121826]Typical happy clapper tripe comment. Who gives a fig about clean sheets it's points goals and promotion that counts[/QUOTE]

What's with this happy clapper nonsense? It's an impressive number, that's all, heaven forbid it gets recognised. Clean sheets contribute to points and potential promotion, not just goals scored.

No doubt, the same amount of points as now, loads of goals scored but a lot more conceded and you'd be saying 'Typical happy clapper tripe comment. Who gives a fig about goals scored it's points clean sheets and promotion that counts'.

Goals for and against are both important. Our goals against us quality, no harm in recognising it. The goals for isn't up to scratch but it doesn't mean the goals against mean sod all. As usual, no sort of balance with half the responses. The World isn't black and white, only shades of grey.

You may not, but the team will take a great deal of pride in this record and rightly so.

Yes three points is the most important thing but records are there to be broken and it will mean a hell of a lot to the players.

Once they cross the white line they should and would be focused on doing whatever they can to win that match but being so close to making history may have played on the minds of one or two.

Now it's out of the way, the burden of pressure has been lifted and they have got a "Monkey of their backs" (you may be familiar with that phrase) they can now move on and hopefully get better between now and season's end.

Well done boys!

👏👏👏

Statistical irrelevance. I would much rather go to watch my team win 2-1, or 4-3 than 1-0 any day. Grateful, as I am, to see us take three points, there is a responsibility to try to play the beautiful game. Folks go to games to see goalmouth action (goals), not ritual bus parking! If we get promotion, I might well eat my words, but this infatuation with defending at all costs won’t bring the masses back to the Racecourse.

Frankly I’m outraged. We should be conceding more goals if anything.

We'd all like to see goalfests with us winning every game but it's simply not happening. We don't have the midfield for it. What we do have a team that's become very hard to beat and will dig in when needs be. Whilst this isn't the most exciting it's got us to 4th in the table with a lot still to play for. Every single one of us would have taken this position this time last year.

I do agree it'll take a bit of luck to get promoted but we're very difficult to beat and if we can hold these teams out or at least nick a few goals back as well, we've got a great shot at it.

Onto Woking, 21 clean sheets and another 3 points, hopefully.

Clean sheets mean nothing if you are not scoring goals at the other end . Yes its an impressive result but its not impressive having to watch game after game playing the defensive card over and over and dropping points all over the place .
As far as I am concerned this league is black & white you either get promoted or you don't ,setting up a team week after week defensively will not get us promoted ends !

So if we played differently we would definitely be better off, how can you be sure of this. We may have gained less points by conceding. Its a decent yield of points this season and something to build on, thats what we all wanted pre season so surely this season is progress.
