Three points! Never under any pressure really. I thought we were a little complacent in the second half. Great foundation for McKenna to build on.

I agree, Wycombe huffed and puffed but nothing much for Hladky to save apart from one at the end, a clean sheet is a good start. Morsy is class for me. God knows how we didn't score a second goal but good start for McKenna to build on.

What was pleasing about that victory I thought we defended much more solid. Burns was to deep for me his talent is needed further forward. Norwood does what he does and scores whether he celebrates or not dont give a sh*t. Woolfenden is far better than Niasla or Burgess all day long.

Well deserved win. They were top 5 before tonight. We outfought them. Keep Nors and Bonne up top - they can create havoc in any defence

I wonder if Woolfies position is as a sweeper...do teams play sweepers these days ?t


as for Norwood. I thought he played well tonight , BUT its nit about celebrating his goals its about his body language after hes scored . It frankly pisses me off, becaus i t comes across as two fingers up ...to whom, Im not sure.

Yep, give him a broom lol. I just don't rate him, he did ok second half today but always an error in him. Still let's be positive tonight, we won, clean sheet, Three points and deserved to win .

well theyre raving about him on twtd ...and unusual event there....


I thought he did well thought most of the game. KmcK clearly views him as a ball playing centre half...blimey he even had him taking the ball well into the opponents half...un heard of under previous managers , and tbf he looked very comfortable on the ball.

Although no fixtures can be taken for granted in this league our run of games throughout January and February give Kieron McKenna a huge opportunity to put a string of results together and get our season back on track and in the hunt for a play off place. Just think what a boost in confidence this would give both players and fans.

Don’t write our season off yet everyone.

Agree with that when he has the excellent Edmundsen beside him. I think theirs is definitely ba partnership worth investing time in.

We were Ok tonight but no more than that. I kind of feel like its time to limp into January and then make changes. Some of our defending was schoolboy at best. We can do great things but then totally stupid things. Now - Woolfenden... he was not the messiah tonight - he was a liability (as usual). I disagree with mendipblue cos I would have Burgess in there all day long and not even have woolfie in the squad xos he has that one lapse of concentration EVERY game - tonight was no different. I am sure someone (out player) handled it before it came to Norwood to score too. If Wycombe could shoot, it would have been 1-1 or 1-2 with ease. Still -'anwim is a win and I left the ground happy with it. We need a new defence (except Edmundson) in January...

I also thought that Burns was played deeper and more defensively tonight - we need him higher up and taking on defenders so that was a tactical issue imo.

What do you think about Donacian? I quite like him , but agree , our defence is not the best abc I can see changes being made there at some point . Probably in the summer. Not sure we’d get what we really want in Jan window , but we’ll see .

Absolutely spot on and I think the defence will indeed be strengthened very soon.

Simply put, Donacien is average - even at this level. He has OK days but would you bet the farm on him performing week in/week out? Its a no from me. I think McKenna had little option but to go with that side last night (and maybe the next few games) but I would be hugely surprised if there are not at least 2 new defenders in during the window.

I was impressed with how well drilled the team looked last night. Everyone seemed to know what they were doing. Penney hasn't been mentioned yet but he had a great game too, Evans the same - had a tidy game. Doesn't get noticed but quietly gets on with business.

Great to see Norwood & Bonne mixing it up but can't help thinking that they are the same type of player, maybe we need more variety up top.

Maybe with quality coaching some of these players can be better than we thought...

Also if Morsy plays right to Pigott at the end it's guaranteed goal but we didn't need it.

Great game, great to watch, good noise most of the time. All positive for me. If we can give the same kind of performance against Lincoln then we are up and running.

I thought it was a very workmanlike performance played with more energy than some of the players have given recently. I know we played deeper than some liked especially our Mick Mills in commentary, however for me it was the deeper play by Burns & Morsy in particular that contributed massively to the clean sheet and 3 points earned.

It was also enjoyable to watch and should encourage many of the extra fans to buy tickets for forthcoming games.

If nothing else it was good to see Wolfie carrying the ball forward into space over the half way line.

Almost Harry Maguire esq in its style. I wonder where that came from.

I can see why Woolfenden is getting a bit of attention because he stepped out of defence impressively a couple of times, but when it comes to the defending side, I’m not too sure. They missed a sitter from a corner when Woolfenden failed to get his head to the ball when he was unchallenged. Prefer him doing the simple things right first and foremost.

Wycombe did seem to allow our CB’s to bring the ball out, but other teams will work that one out.

Interesting to see Evans be the deep midfielder and Morsy the one making the forward runs. Just wish that Morsy could finish better. Pity he didn’t square to Pigott at the end as Pigott needs a goal. Feel a bit sorry for Pigott. Just not happening for him.

We definitely looked a bit more organised, I thought there were a few occasions where we got ourselves into decent offensive positions but then the movement and positional play was a bit poor so the ball ended up going backwards or sideways but definitely improvement overall
