CARABAO CUP ...WE NEARLY GOT THROUGH...

Round Two of this seasons Carabao Cup took us to Goodison Park to play Premier League outfit, Everton!



Covid-19 no fans AWAY DAY!


Due to the ongoing pandemic, unfortunately we was denied potentially our biggest and best AWAY DAY to date...


With this being the current norm, how did we get on in only our forth game of the new season...



We stayed in the game until late on...


After losing a early goal to a fine Keane header from a corner, we slowly got in to the game, which included a maturing performance from Asante. Showing no fear and attempting to play his game, Asante managed to help the team make a game of it....


The excitement was growing for those watching at home, the nerves were going..... Could we snatch a goal and take the game to penalties..... Just could we?


Well, as we know now, no we couldn't and two more Everton goals made sure our efforts were in vein and there was no cup upset happening....


Would it have been a cup upset?


Well, as the name states EVERTON, then yes.... But only by name and not by team performance.


Everton put together a team made up of internationals, second string and kids... This tends to swing our minds a little.


I'm not sure the opposition team would compete for promotion in League Two over a season, but with internationals like Sigurosson in a one off game, they had a couple of match winners lining up...



What did we learn about Salford?


If Grimsby watched the match last night, I'm sure they will be worried about players like Asante and Hunter.... But they'll get more pleasure looking down our right hand side.. We don't have a right back and we don't acknowledge it in our own tactics to help the hard working Threlkeld out....


Playing Wilson in the Armstrong position from weekend, surly gives Armstrong some credit... Does it work? How can we fix this dilemma?


Early days, so we have lots of time to improve match fitness and team awareness, but last nights match showed we need to increase everything we do by 80% to even dream of promotion...


WE CAN DO IT AMMIES....
