Twenty’s plenty
 
New club record today set of 20 clean sheets in one season.

Whatever you think of our style of play, 20 clean sheets in 37 games is an incredible achievement. Well done to the lads, a really solid base on which to build.

Could that have been the reason for us conceding goals recently? Defensively the team putting too much pressure on themselves to go out and break this record.
A great achievement which hopefully now it's out of the way, the lads can relax and go out and get many more between now and the end of the season.

I doubt the team give two hoots about this record. I care very little about it.

Football is about winning games. That is all I and the team care about.

I'd prefer the opposite record of scoring most goals in a season. "Let's go and watch Wrexham keep a clean sheet and pass sideways" said noone ever.

I'd rather we had both...

A mean defence partnered with a potent midfield & strikeforce. We'd be pissing the league if we had.

We scored 100 goals in 2011/12 and didn't go up then either.

The people on this thread...honestly. Nobody is saying the defence need a stamp in their honour but they've done something quite impressive. Those of you flipping that around to have a pop need to see a doctor.

Bloody hell, ME a happy clapper?! I think I’ve been shouted down more than most this season for me whinging about our style of play, or rather lack of.

It’s a nice little good thing we’ve done, nobody has said that it’s not points and promotion that counts, chill out.

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.

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.

Willywill 12th March 2018 17.30:32

Re: Twenty’s plenty
 
Moyn, yesterday’s crowd DID surpass the aggregate compared to last season. We are higher in the league compared to last year and going for promotion. That said, the product is bland and very little “feel good factor”. As I walk back to my car after the game, the fans talk is generally negative whether we have won or drawn (we rarely lose at home,granted).
Fans talking seriously about our chances of being promoted should be dreaming of taking opponents apart,not containing them or killing the game (every game).

If I understand you correctly being 'higher in the league' and 'going for promotion' is what increases attendances. I saw plenty of smiling faces yesterday and that is nothing to do with my perspective but honestly what I saw. We can kill every game for the next 9 if we finish 3rd for me.

Willywill 12th March 2018 17.49:28

Re: Twenty’s plenty
 
Oh come on. A win against Chester, our number one rivals, would clearly make us all smile. It’s the one game where our winner can come from anywhere and we would be ecstatic. I appreciate your position, but a large chunk of our fan base are not as upbeat or moved as you are.

But they obviously do mean something as we are well up there. We could be entertaining and lose 4-3 most weeks but you can bet your bottom dollar that a position fourth from bottom will see our crowds plummet. Truly we need both entertainment and success but it isn't happening and in the end I prefer this way rather than the other way round. I remember the very entertaining West Ham team from decades ago. I don't remember them winning anything significant though

Put it in another context - it is at least 20 matches undefeated

Re: Twenty’s plenty
 
If we consider all the games we have drawn 0-0 or won 1-0, you could argue that our defence has won us 27 points this season.
If you extend that to our points gained to no goals conceded, it becomes 48 points, I think.
Defences don’t win games though.
