Glad to hear Nors got an assist and delighted for Bonne. Hero in the making. Satisfied with that. Need central defence sorted and team to get to know each other then we will be unstoppable😁👍Looking forward to Mike's report.
Yes, think that is a good assessment. Delighted for Bonne too and goes to show that we have very healthy competition and options up front.
Good to read that it was ALL ITFC for most of the game especially second half. That is a big positive for a new team in their first competitive match, regardless of opposition.

Also very happy for MacBonne as he was getting increasingly p1$$ed off in the Colchester game with both lack of supply and horrendously over"cooked" supply, ......, good to hear he hit the net in the competitive opener. Looking forward to both report and some highlights.

Loads to be positive about. We pass well (sone great cross field passes) and look dangerous in attack with fast action from the wings!! Two bad mistakes let in two goals. Things will improve. I have high hopes after this in such a short timeframe. We were the better team throughout. Ref was absolutely dreadful - worst I can remember for a long long time (and we have had our share of bad ones!). Harper looks to have several more gears and when he passes or accelerates can be sublime. Evans a great skipper/vice skipper, KVY looking sharper and burns solid and holds ball up well.

Atmosphere was great and positive throughout. No idea what has happened to the PA system though as it used to be too loud but now you can't hear a word said!

Loved being back - covid is dead as far as football fans are concerned from the singing at the bars pre game. I LOVED it and am glad we didn't lose. Happy with a point - we are in first gear with plenty to come. Onwards we go - COYB's

My thoughts on Penney who I think most would think he's not one of our better new players, his first touch is not great and I'm not sure about his defending at times but he certainly likes to get forward and puts in a shift, he's only 23 years and in time could be a useful player.

This from the club, Wilf:

"Apologies to all fans for the PA system. But some b*stard decided to put Ed Sheeran songs on. We turned it the fk down. Again, apologies."

Seems genuine, Wilf.

Pleasantly surprised with some of the new signings
Thought we played the better football and deserved the point at least.
We need to get more cover at the back

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.

Good report BM glad you enjoyed the new setup, it sure looks very promising this season, and I think you will find out the Cookie will bring in another CB pretty dam quick as he wont stand for failure from a player who keeps making big mistakes like Wolfie has for ages, I'm very sad for the lad as I had high hopes of him a few seasons ago, PC might stick with him to loan him out elsewhere, when he played at Swindon he was raw but very good in defence.

Anyway I'm sure we will see at least another 3 players coming in this window, and a few going out, :D 21'000 is a cracking gate and if we keep the pressure up it will go back to the regular 25'000 to 30'000 gates.

It’s no surprise Wolfie was at fault for both goals, he’s always been a liability. We scored two goals, that’s an improvement. A few people already moaning, oh dear. COYB!

Frustrating not to win particularly on opening day for a season but at least we got a point from it near the very end. Some bizarre comments in the above regarding disillusionment we didn't rack up a runaway victory, some people need to get certain perspective. The opposition were never going to roll over for us and it will take time for all new players to adapt to a new club setting and fulfil expectation.

Can't quite lend oneself to castigate the pissers and moaners, have done enough of it myself however even the more pessimistic will realize we now have a much improved squad and manager and ownership prepared to try and attempt things done. Would have been great to start with three points but kind of baby steps needed here for the immediate time ahead. Over twenty thousand attendance if correct signifies a willingness to believe and those with expectation something can really be achieved one year from now.

I really enjoyed the Paul Cook post match interview in particular his comment about “the game becoming a bit of a circus with the referee losing control” . A very honest summary of the game with great understanding of what needs to be done, a brilliant communicator and motivator. Cookie I luv ya pal, you’ll do for me.

It’s far too early to put money on it but Paul Cook could just be our best Manager since Bobby Robson and we’ve had a few decent ones since then, albeit only very few. Now that should start a decent debate.

Totos injury:

Saw this on twtd just now….. from the horse mouth so to speak….

“Had an opportunity to speak with Toto after the match. Limping heavily, hamstring injury, scan on Monday. He hopes he will only be out for just 2-3 weeks, I personally think that is overly optimistic but I am no expert and he apparently recovers quickly from injury! He was amazed by the reception the team got from the fans today. He is impressed by the quality of players brought in. I got the impression that he is concerned that whilst his injury will obviously keep him out of the team in the short term the recent signings and those that may yet be made may keep him out long term too. Only time will tell!”

We need to get Edmundson fit and we need to sign another CB pretty damn quick cus without Toto and relying on car crash Woolfenden we will ship goals, personally I though Donacien looked far more solid than Woolfy, I would also be promoting Elkan Baggott to the first team squad too.

Evans and Harper standouts for me. Have to keep them fit. Loads of options up front so it’s a case of them fighting for those places.
An experienced CB even more critical now with Toto’s injury and the fact that Woolfy continues to switch off and can’t make good decisions. I’m getting sick and tired of hearing about how our academy players just need experienced players around them. Fair enough to a certain extent, but in a frenetic game there’s times when you can’t wait for advice or have somebody to babysit you. They need to earn a right to be in the team and stay there.

Can’t get around it - home draw with Morecambe spoilt the party atmosphere, but I enjoyed the intent of getting forward at pace and getting our wide men on the ball. Evans was spraying some great balls out wide. Feel when this team gets to know each other we’ll be all right.

Far from perfect result, but head and shoulders above the type of dull, slow football that Lambert dished up.

Donacien’s had a strange career with us. I wondered if he would move on as he doesn’t appear to be the type of full-back that Cook wants. But he rarely lets us down and his versatility proved handy yesterday. I think Baggott needs a loan out. If we bring him in then he’s another who’ll need time to gain experience and I’d prefer he makes his mistakes elsewhere and learns from them at another club. Edmundson was bought to be a first team regular and you’d think he will partner a new CB.

No way would we have come back for the draw last season or past two or three seasons being honest

I cannot remember one save our keeper had to make, best thing Woolfenden did was win us a corner at the end.

Cannot believe how poor the referee was, was so petty. Ball had to be on the single grade of grass for a freekick, he was marking the spot for the freekick some 50+ meters out. No idea how he could be fooled by Morecambe's Cooney I believe on his diving. He dived like a swan to get Norwood booked. Honestly he was pitiful and the way Morecambe played for time and the ref just let them rule the play.

Their two goals was like watching Keystone Kops, the first was like Moses splitting the red sea for their player to run on. Even then he went wide yet still scored, though he taken it well but we should of been blocked him off. The second was just calamity Jane like with poor Woolfy getting caught.

Our goals were Superb, both of them. If a top Premiership team scored the first would see Match of The Day pundits purring over it. The second was just what we needed for we were just passing the ball around going nowhere until Hladky launched it and Norwood's Superb flick on with his head for well taking goal by Bonne. First thought possibly offside but breathed sigh of relief seeing no flag go up

Many, many more positives than negatives and we should really be happy with that performance other than two huge c*ck ups. For me we can only get better and so good to see the crowed and hear the noise

Just saw video highlights. Both goals superbly taken though I think Bonne probably was off side so can forgive the ref for the other aspects of his game😁😁
Toto/Donacien as back up Wolfy gone methinks. Bring on the new CB and Edmundson

Your last comment is exactly why I left a certain other fan site!! I like it here, a everyone seems to be an adult with a sensible view on the new era and, although we always have expectations, they are realistic!

I think for a first game with a new team we did good. Yes Woolfy screwed up but if he does that again he won't be in the squad for long!! The signs are there for some great partnerships and once the dust settles a bit and they've had a few more games to gel, its gonna be fun. Can't wait to get back and come to a game!!

COYB :D

You can count yourself fortunate you're too young to recall Clive Thomas.

Wonder also why we seem to gather of lot of sh*t ineffective game officials over recent time. Are they picking us out for certain treatment or simply incompetent. Offers the question what good is a new look team and ambition if the 'men' supposed to arbitrate it frequently f*ck up and cost us (and guess others) points and victories etc.

I don't know him Marko but Saint is right with Clive Thomas, an absolute fucktard of the highest order who cost us a FA Cup final appearance through his ineptitude.
