On the face of it it looks like a disappointing day but while the result wasn't what we all wanted or expected I think there were plenty of positives out there today.
I really like the look of Evans and Harper (our best player today), they are going to be some pairing at this level, Pigott also impressed me, as did Burns. I think we started very tentatively with lots of nerves out there from the likes of Penney, Woolfenden, Fraser etc but gradually grew into the game.
The Two goals we conceded were terrible and for me Two c*ck ups from Woolfenden, the second was just criminal and suicide, I've said for some time now he is crap, always has been and always will be, if we stick with him we'll achieve nothing this season.
At the time of their second goal we were in control and looking like winners all day long but Woolfy put paid to that. I thought we looked bright second half and stepped it up, we hit the post, the keeper made a decent save and generally had them on the back foot. It was noticeable that Chaplin played Central first half and wasn't in it, after the break he was more wide and showed his class with some neat touches.
The only real piece of true class in the game saw us score a cracker and that move alone is a sign of things to come, we also didn't let heads drop and thoroughly deserved the equaliser which Bonne took with aplomb when under pressure.
Its a point on the board but we will get so much better, the defence needs strengthening and with Edmundson and A.N.Other to come in that will happen, its a blow to lose Toto but Donacien did very well when coming on at CB, don't write him off.
The ref was disgusting tbh and very biased, I hope that's not a sign of things to come, the atmosphere was superb, I have to say I am really pleased with the post match comments from the majority of Town fans, those with a brain see the bigger picture, we'll always have the odd idiot who comes up with a stupid comment, they've waited with baited breath for the opportunity, they are either scummers or morons or both.
We're up and running, COYB'S.
