Pre-Match Thoughts - Mike



The Taming Of The Shrews........


We return to league action this Saturday following our Two goal victory over Gillingham in Midweek in the Papa John's Trophy, I think it is fair to say that this is a pivotal game in the tenure of Paul Cook, not so much because of what the owners may or may not do but more in respect of how Cook's relationship with the fans will be affected. It can't be ignored that a fair chunk of the Town support has already lost his trust and they are already of the belief that he is nowhere good enough to get us out of this wretched division, to be fair to some, they didn't want Cook from day One and so far he has done little to prove them wrong.

Failure to win at home to a mediocre Shrewsbury side will no doubt have others clamoring for Blood, the defeat last weekend at Accrington still sits firmly at the forefront of most Town fans thoughts, the win at Gillingham really means little in the grand scheme of things, so Town really do need to get back on track where |League Points are concerned. Boss Cook decided to shake things up for the Cup match with virtually a completely different team and on the night it worked, a decent performance, albeit against a much changed Gills side too, saw One or two players put themselves forward for possible involvement against Shrewsbury, most noticeable were the efforts of Conor Chaplin, Joe Pigott & Idris El Mizouni who all did their chances no harm at all.

With a home game against Shrewsbury Town being followed by a trip to Cambridge Utd it has to be said that the League table could look very different in Ten days time, Six points is certainly not beyond Town and these games offer up a realistic chance to obtain exactly that, that type of scenario would have the Accrington game all but forgotten and would have Town much more in touch with where we all expect the team to be. Town are showing a bit of form in fits and starts but it is consistency that is going to push us up the table, a couple of good results being followed by a poor One is not going to get it done and with tricky games coming up against Portsmouth, Fleetwood & Plymouth I think it is crucial we see off the next Two opponents without any setbacks.

This weekend will see Town having to make at least One change to the line up that took to the field at Accrington as Bersant Celina is away on International duty with Kosovo, that leaves the door open for someone else to grasp the chance, Kyle Edwards came through unscathed at the Priestfield and probably has him in pole position to start on Saturday.

Shrewsbury Town are currently next to bottom of the table with Eight points from Eleven games and have just lost their last Two League games, scoring goals is their nemesis with only Eight to date, only bottom club Doncaster have scored less so with Town's undoubted attacking power this could well be a long afternoon for the men from Shropshire, Daniel Udoh is their leading scorer at present with Three goals, One name that will be familiar to Town fans is that of Matt Pennington who had a loan spell at Portman Road having been brought to the club by Paul Hurst.

Try as I might I can find few excuses for Town not winning this game comfortably, I think anything else would be a disaster to be honest and for that reason I am going for a rejuvenated Town team to triumph with little fuss and having all once again believing that things will come right and that Paul Cook is the man to oversee it, Town win !!!! COYB'S




The Opposition – Shrewsbury Town



Image



Shrewsbury Town were formed in 1886, following the demise of first Shropshire Wanderers and later indirectly Castle Blues. The Blues were a rough team, leading to their demise after several games were marred by violence. The new team hoped to be as successful but without the notoriety. Press reports differ as to the date the new club was formed, The Eddowes Shropshire Journal of 26 May 1886 reported the birth of the club at The Lion Hotel, Wyle Cop, Shrewsbury. The Shrewsbury Chronicle reported the club's being formed at the Turf Hotel, Claremont Hill, Shrewsbury. It may be both accounts are true, with a get-together at The Lion being finalised at the Turf.

After friendlies and regional cup competitions for the first few seasons, Shrewsbury were founder members of the Shropshire & District League in 1890–91, later admitted to the Birmingham & District League in 1895–96. Many of the teams Town faced in the early days have vanished, however Shrewsbury met many of today's Football League and Conference teams, including Crewe Alexandra, Coventry City, Stoke City, Kidderminster Harriers and Stafford Rangers.

In 1910, Shrewsbury looked to move to a new ground, having spent early years at locations across the town, notably at Copthorne Barracks west of the town. The club moved to Gay Meadow on the edge of the town centre, within sight of Shrewsbury Abbey, and stayed 97 years.

Shrewsbury's Birmingham League days were mostly mid-table, with a few seasons challenging near the top, the club being league champions in 1922–23.

A move to the Midland Champions League in 1937–38 saw the club enjoy one of its most successful seasons, winning a league and cup treble. Shrewsbury were league champions, scoring 111 goals . In addition, the Welsh Cup was won following a replay, the team enjoyed a run in the FA Cup, and won the Shropshire Senior Cup.

After a run of good seasons in post-war years, Shrewsbury were admitted, alongside Scunthorpe United to the old Division 3 (North) of the Football League in 1950, after being Midland League champions in 1949–50, following the decision to expand from 88 to 92 clubs.
Shrewsbury gained their first promotion, to the Third Division, in 1958–59. They remained in the third tier 15 years, slipping back to Division Four at the end of 1973–74.

1960–61 season saw Shrewsbury Town reach the Semi Final of the League Cup. After beating Everton in the quarter-finals, they narrowly lost over two legs 4–3 on aggregate to Rotherham United. This era was also remembered for Arthur Rowley. He arrived from Leicester City in 1958, the club's first player/manager. During his playing and managerial career, he broke Dixie Dean's goal-scoring record, scoring his 380th league goal against Bradford City at Valley Parade on 29 April 1961. Retiring from playing in 1965 he remained manager until July 1968.

Shrewsbury were promoted to the Third Division in 1974–75 as runners-up, before another successful season in 1978–79, when they were league champions under Ritchie Barker and later Graham Turner. Over 14,000 fans packed Gay Meadow on 17 May 1979 to see Shrewsbury seal promotion with a 4–1 win over Exeter City. In addition, the club had their first run to the FA Cup quarter-finals, before a replay defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Turner is the team's most successful manager, winning the Third Division Championship in 1978–79 – his first season in charge – to take the club into the Second Division for the first time. They remained for ten years, although Turner departed for Aston Villa in 1984. Shrewsbury repeated their 1979 feat of reaching the quarter-final in 1981–82, defeating UEFA Cup holders Ipswich Town in the fifth round before defeat away to Leicester City.

The 1980s saw many big teams defeated by Shrewsbury, whose period in the old Second Division coincided with some of the current Premier League clubs. During the 1980s, Fulham, Newcastle United, Blackburn Rovers, West Ham United and Chelsea lost to Shrewsbury Town. Middlesbrough were defeated at Gay Meadow at the end of 1985–86, Shrewsbury winning 2–1, relegating Middlesbrough, who went out of business and almost out of existence. The match was marred by violence from Middlesbrough fans, with many of them later having to return to Shrewsbury for court appearances.

In the early to mid-1980s the club enjoyed its most successful Football League run. Shrewsbury survived through the sale of players, with some to have played for Shrewsbury including Steve Ogrizovic, David Moyes, John McGinlay and Bernard McNally. They were relegated at the end of 1988–89 after ten years. In the Third Division, on 22 December 1990, Gary Shaw scored the quickest Town hat trick – 4 minutes and 32 seconds – against Bradford City at Valley Parade. At the end of 1991–92, three years after relegation to the Third Division, the club was relegated to the Fourth – the first time since 1975. However, two seasons later Shrewsbury won the new (fourth tier) Division Three championship under Fred Davies in 1993–94, and remained in Division Two (third tier) three seasons. Shrewsbury were not to rise any further, remaining mid-table before slipping down again at the end of 1996–97.

The 1990s saw Shrewsbury make their first appearance at Wembley as finalists in the 1996 Football League Trophy final. Shrewsbury lost 2–1 to Rotherham United; future Shrewsbury striker Nigel Jemson scoring both Rotherham goals. Davies was sacked at the end of the 1996–97 relegation season. Jake King arrived, following a successful reign at local rivals Telford United.

In the 1999–2000, Shrewsbury endured a poor season, with King being sacked in November as the club near relegation. Former Everton captain and Welsh international Kevin Ratcliffe was appointed manager and saved them from relegation to the Conference on the final day of the season with a 2–1 victory away to Exeter City.

Ratcliffe worked on improving the side. Former youth team and reserve player Luke Rodgers emerged as a regular goal-scorer, and with big names arriving at Shrewsbury, the team looked on the up, narrowly missing the 2001–02 league playoffs despite 70 points.

The 2002–03 saw Shrewsbury enjoy an FA Cup run. After dispatching non-league sides Stafford Rangers and Barrow, they won at home against Everton in the third round in front of 7,800, with two goals by Nigel Jemson. Chelsea were the fourth round visitors, in a televised match on BBC's Match of the Day. Town lost 0–4, with Gianfranco Zola the man of the match. A near capacity crowd of 7,950 turned up for Chelsea, but from then on, the side's form disappeared, picking up just two wins in the league thereafter. Seven points adrift at the bottom and having conceded 92 goals, the club contemplated the end of their 53 years in the league. Following angry demonstrations from fans, Ratcliffe resigned, and Mark Atkins took temporary charge for the club final League game, a 2–1 defeat to Scunthorpe United, who were coincidentally the first League opponents for Shrewsbury Town back in 1950.

Northwich Victoria manager Jimmy Quinn was appointed Shrewsbury manager in May 2003, with the aim of getting them promoted back to the Football League at the first attempt. With most of the previous year's players released, Quinn assembled a whole new squad, with experienced non-league players such as Darren Tinson and Jake Sedgemore being joined by Colin Cramb, Scott Howie and former League Cup finalist Martin O'Connor. The league title went to Chester City, but with 74 points, Shrewsbury finished third in the league and defeated Barnet in the playoff semi-finals to set up a playoff final against Aldershot Town, at the neutral venue of the Britannia Stadium, home of Stoke City. The two teams played out a 1–1 draw which went to a penalty shootout. Shrewsbury goalkeeper Scott Howie saved three consecutive Aldershot penalties and defender Trevor Challis scored the winning penalty.

Quinn departed 14 league games into the season, being replaced by former Preston manager Gary Peters, who preserved Shrewsbury's Football League status in the 2004–05 League Two campaign. Shrewsbury's plans to move ground came to fruition, as chairman Roland Wycherley ceremoniously cut the first sod of soil at the New Meadow in the summer of 2006.

Despite the departure of a then talented young goalkeeper and future England number 1 Joe Hart to Manchester City, Shrewsbury went on a 14-match unbeaten run in the 2006–07 season; following a 2–2 draw against Grimsby Town in the final League match to be held at Gay Meadow, they finished in seventh place and thus qualified for the play-offs, where they defeated Milton Keynes Dons in the semi-finals. The team lost to Bristol Rovers in the League Two play-off final on 26 May 2007 at the new Wembley Stadium in front of a record crowd for any 4th tier game of 61,589.

The club moved to the New Meadow stadium for the 2007–08 season. Peters left the club on 3 March 2008 by mutual consent, replaced by Paul Simpson, who led the club to an eventual 18th-place finish in the league. After the season, the kit manufacturer Prostar earned the naming rights of the stadium.

The 2008–09 season saw Shrewsbury reach the play-offs again with victory over Dagenham and Redbridge on the final day of the season. They faced Bury in the playoff semi-finals, winning on penalties with goalkeeper Luke Daniels making two saves to send Shrewsbury through 4–3 on aggregate. Shrewsbury lost 0–1 to Gillingham in the play-off final at Wembley Stadium on 23 May in front of 53,706, with a goal in the 90th minute by Gillingham's Simeon Jackson. On 30 April 2010, after a disappointing 2009–10 season, Simpson was dismissed as manager with two games remaining.

Graham Turner returned to Shrewsbury Town as manager in June 2010. The club finished the 2010–11 season in 4th place, finishing with 79 points and qualifying for the playoffs, missing automatic promotion by only 1 point. They lost 2–0 on aggregate in the playoff semi-final to Torquay United. The following 2011–12 season they finished 2nd on 88 points. They won 1–0 over Dagenham & Redbridge from a James Collins header on the penultimate game of the season to achieve promotion to League One after a 15-year absence. Shrewsbury exceeded expectations the following 2012–13 season and ultimately managed to seal League One safety with two games to spare of their first season back, a 1–0 win at home to Oldham Athletic. The beat relegated Portsmouth 3–2 on the final day to finish 16th on 55 points. The following season, a disappointing first half of the season saw Turner quit in January and relegation was confirmed after a 2–4 home defeat against Peterborough United.

In May 2014 ex-Fleetwood Town boss Micky Mellon was appointed manager. Town were promoted back to League One on 25 April 2015 with a 0–1 victory away to Cheltenham Town via Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro's goal. Mellon left for Tranmere Rovers in October 2016, and he was replaced by Grimsby Town manager Paul Hurst, with Shrewsbury bottom. In 2017–18, Hurst led Shrewsbury to the EFL Trophy, ultimately losing to Lincoln. He also led the team to the League One play-offs, but lost to Rotherham after extra time. Hurst left to join Ipswich Town on 30 May 2018. He was replaced by former Macclesfield boss John Askey, but he was sacked later that year in November having won just 5 of their opening 21 games. His successor, Sam Ricketts was appointed manager in December.

Following disruption to the season in March 2020 due to COVID-19, final League One standings were decided on a points per game basis with Shrewsbury finishing in 15th place.

In November 2020, Ricketts was sacked with Shrewsbury in 23rd place and was replaced by Steve Cotterill.

Last season Shrewsbury finished 17th place in the League 1.

Great preview and agree with it all. An underlying essence of impatience running through it and rightly so.

Going back to Steve & Jo who started all the “leader on the park” chat (which is very much correct)……. Those previous 5 results bookended with 2-5 Bolton & 2-1 Stanley…… this team is crying out for someone on that park to command Cooks “visions” are carried out. The middle 3 results of the 5 were gutsy performances.
Second half performances like the one v Stanley need eradicated for the pressure to be lifted off Cook ——>> players need to shift up a few gears when the chips are down.

Voted home win.

I think it will be tight and they will score, look at their last 5 results and they always get a goal and never get hammered. I suspect they will also have taken alot of intel from the Accrington game to use in their game plan.

I'd like to see 1 or 2 change in the front positions to freshen things up. (naturally keep Bonne!)

Have to get 3 points otherwise I can see the crowd really turning against PC.
TBH even if we do win tomorrow I seriously doubt that this will lead to a revival in our fortunes unless PC is willing to change formations for different situations. Unfortunately I just can't see him doing this.
Will go for a narrow Town win but would not be at all surprised to see a repeat of the Accrington result at Cambridge tomorrow week.

Thanks for the preview Mike. I hope you’re feeling a bit better.

It’s been a frustrating start to the season. On paper we should be bossing games and cowing opposition into submission. Instead, with exception of Doncaster, too often the opposite is true. This month’s games are a real test of Cook’s management. Can he outthink the opposition and organise his superior players to force results? I think so, or at least I bloody hope so! Shrewsbury at home is the easiest October fixture I would say. So in blind faith…

2-0 Town

If we don’t win this one even I will begin having doubts about Paul Cooks future at Portman Road. Hopefully this won’t be necessary,

Just kind of good to have a game, didn't think some days back there even was one. Simple this, the team has to win, no more pissing around at the wrong end of the league. The team have showed when they get their thumbs out their as* they can put on a display and record a substantial win. Seems often few and far between but it can and has been accomplished.

I don't know how many further losses / points dropped will see Cook fall through the exit but here at least is another opportunity to do something against an opposition you really should be beating particularly with a home advantage.

Very important we scored first, had it gone the other way I’m sure Shrewsbury would have shut up shop, at least they have to play now.

Who would believe until today they’d only scored twice on the road all season and are the Leagues second lowest scorers.
