I am so impressed with John McCarthy. He is obviously methodical and meticulous in his approach to, seemingly, every aspect of football management. He knows our limitations both on and off the field but seems to have a development plan for individual players and the team as a whole which he is strong enough to stick to. He doesn't seem to get fazed when results go against us. It is clear he knows what he is doing, we would all love us to be scoring lots of goals, wining lots of games, seeing lots of effort and not conceding. The last two points seem to be further advanced than the first two but we appear to be heading in the right direction. Hopefully the strikers will start putting into practice what they are being "taught" sooner rather than later. The game on Saturday was a dreadful spectacle for the fans but the intention was to get at least a point which we did with ease.

I think we will edge up the table and finish comfortably somewhere around the middle of the table, but the heart hopes for better.

A mention to for Sharps, he has clearly been instrumental in making the defence pretty much watertight.

A work in progress but I am sure we are under the correct leadership.

I agree. I've been pleasantly surprised. It's much better than last season despite losing key players, and that's because we are now playing with tactics and are organised. Because of the average age then obviously we are a work in progress, but I'm confident the management team have enough about them to keep us out of a relegation battle, which is surely the aim this year.

He lost faith with the philosophy that had always served him pretty well and consequently ended up with an unbalanced squad with no idea of his best 11 or best formation. Under Macca we may be limited but at least players know they jobs, makes a huge difference.

The players I've spoken with, speak really highly about McCarthy's approach. He's really passionate about the Club and is desperate to see the Club prosper.

Me too.

I cringe a little when seeing his interviews but over all there are signs of a good little team coming together.
I couldn't fathom out Burrs tactics, formations or team selections last season. This season has been a 1000% improvement. The tactics maybe simple but the players all know what their role in the team is and they looked well drilled.

Burrs biggest problem was trying to fit the talented John Rooney into the team. Macca knew straight away that Rooney shouldn't be accommodated in centre mid or the number ten position and played him wide midfield where he arguably had his best three games for us ... The same problem is creating mayhem for the goats now so Macca could be regarded as a miracle worker.

I'm ok with that.


Works out at 1.5 points per game or 69 points in a 46 game season. That's was eight last year I'd take that in a heartbeat. Be great to see us safe early so he can re sign players rathering than having to wait to see what league we're in.

I think he's a good one just a little green at management. Starting to look forward to the games again, been a while since I could say that.

Reading RP and the comments about Rooney is like reading DC last season. Same problems different club. The Goats are doing all they can to keep him in the team. It's plain as day. You cannot build a team around him and do well

It may be a work in progress and the clean sheets are impressive indeed . . . but can't help thinking we are still lacking up front as honest and hardworking Alabi, Akintunde and Richards are??

It's an experienced and raw front line that probably could do with an addition. Stats suggest suggest goalscoring isn't really a problem for us so far this season though. I reckon Kane will get double figures for us.

I agree, but will Akintunde get a chance?
Coming on for 5 minutes last Saturday doesn't give the lad a chance.
I understand that JM was happy for a draw and our defence and midfield were comfortable, but with an injection of pace up front Wrexham were there for the taking.

I'd like to see the front two be a bit quicker at shooting from outside the area, one touch and shoot.
If it goes high and wide, so what at least its a chance instead of taking 2/3 touches and getting closed down.

Unbeaten in 4 games is a great improvement especially with them all being clean sheets.
This Saturday against Dover is a good test to see if we really have improved.

Weird that Akintunde isn't getting much of a look in, yet the recent article in the Chron quotes Jon saying 'Akintunde is probably the most natural goal-scorer in the squad'. Then play him? Personally I think he should be getting more of a crack and i'd like to see him start against Dover. Alabi's first touch during the Wrexham game was awful and surprised nobody mentioned this on the other thread. He lost the ball numerous times.

I also think we're very imblalanced on the wing. Mahon has been much better this season, even if his final ball is lacking slightly. On the opposite side we don't offer much though, I think Macca was expecting Chapell to step it up this season but so far he has not.

Can't fault anything defensively.

He's a young lad but for me Alabi struggles with mobility. His burst from standing is poor, and you'd struggle to get the Daily Mirror under him when he jumps. For his size he also struggles to hold the ball up. Hopefully he will develop.

Akintunde is a lot livelier, and for me would give us a better outlet when pinned back.

Record so far:

P 16
W7
D3
L6
F 27
A 20
Pts 24

I'm ok with that.


Works out at 1.5 points per game or 69 points in a 46 game season. That's was eight last year I'd take that in a heartbeat. Be great to see us safe early so he can re sign players rathering than having to wait to see what league we're in.

I think he's a good one just a little green at management. Starting to look forward to the games again, been a while since I could say that.


100% agree, the feeling now is if we lose one we have a good chance of bouncing back in the next one which last season that was not there. Have to admit JMc is winning me over as the guy to take us forward on the pitch.

Burrs biggest problem was trying to fit the talented John Rooney into the team. Macca knew straight away that Rooney shouldn't be accommodated in centre mid or the number ten position and played him wide midfield where he arguably had his best three games for us ... The same problem is creating mayhem for the goats now so Macca could be regarded as a miracle worker.

Reading RP and the comments about Rooney is like reading DC last season. Same problems different club. The Goats are doing all they can to keep him in the team. It's plain as day. You cannot build a team around him and do well


Looks like Jose has the same problem with his big brother (perhaps its a genetic thing) !
