Just remembered something that us laughing on the sideline in the 2nd half.

We got a corner and everyone was in the box, bar the defenders... and Dan Burnip. Dan used some tactics +1 and hid behind the ref making a late run from behind him into the area.   ;D :shifty:

Aye, can someone explain to me why, at 4-3 down, we had our two biggest aerial threats sat on the halfway line with the fullbacks?

Well played today chaps. Obviously my first time and in all honesty I thought I did a Nolan and went missing second half. Nevertheless, I appreciate the comments. Personally I reckon our strongest aspects (no offence to the other lads who also played a good, hard game) were probably our keeper, two centre halves, Stu and Dave or Rocky or whatever the f*** he was called lol. Basically it was the people who seemed to either have a good engine or be able to read the game. Stu has a good engine and the centre backs could read the game really well I felt, it's just a case of everyone getting to know each other, everyone get a string of games together and everyone finding some match fitness from what I could see. We seemed fairly quiet and quite simply f***ed at times today - me included - me especially second half lol.

Good to see lads organising this though, you deserve a lot of credit regardless - I enjoyed the experience even though we did lose, it was nice and friendly but competitive too.

Instructions from our linesman that one. Was starting to trot forward and got told to stay back!

Here's my ankle from that "tackle" on me when I was clearing the ball.

Oh, eew Chris. Strap it up or something. Maybe some frozen peas on there.

Please note I'm not a first aider, so I'm guessing.

We as a team seem incredibly strong in midfield.

 :lol:

TBF I'm clueless in midfield, the fact that I had a lot of other people around me who were in their natural positions is what helped, because they could tell me what to do.

Enjoyed it at CM though, gave me a chance to get forward which in the past I've rarely had the chance to do.

Sounds like you guys are making very good progress, don't forget there are plenty of "gym bores" on the forum if you think a lack of fitness is still holding you back a little :pow:

Properly goosed this morning, my left hamstring is very sore - thanks Nixon for the "run it off" comments from the touchline!

Thought we did pretty well though, we were fairly solid at the back (save for my usual Boumsong moments) and it wasn't until late on where again, fitness showed through.

Good game though and we're improving with every match

Eh? The sub went straight on as I came off (as I'd already signalled to them 3 times that I was f***ed!)

Yeah, I heard you say that you needed to be subbed off but had no idea you'd been subbed! :lol:

I know the general theme is that we need to improve our fitness which is pretty much down to the individual.
Things like team work and understanding will only come through playing more matches together.

However, there are a few small things we can do before & during the match - on their own, they're not that important, but 'every little helps' - like having one of the subs run our line (not Nixon as he's trying to manage subtitutions, formations, etc [ED: and he can't keep up with play?]), having the other subs on the halfway line ready to come on so we can make rolling subs throughout the game, etc.

What's the general view on a post-match (NOFC or NUFC) drink? There's a few lads who make the effort each game to meet up, but it would help to get to know each other (and thank the opposition for travelling up) if we did more than just go our own way after the NOFC game has ended...

A lineo wouldn't have mattered, the ref wasn't listening.

I'll be honest though I'm saying now I don't want to manage the team. I just want to play.

Last game we went for a few drinks and it was good.  I would have loved to have hung around but i had to get to work.

On the whole getting to know each other....i really think the 5,7 11 a side training is the way forward.  2 birds one stone and all that

Match report from Kidderminster:

ave Goode scored a hat-trick to secure a victory in the north east of England as part of a Fans Team excursion to Newcastle. Chris Lacey and Mark Young also grabbed a goal each in an epic 5-3 victory for the touring Harriers Fans Squad.

Most of the 13 man squad met in the North East night spot during the Friday afternoon but were soon accompanied by the ‘Barrow 6’ which included Adam Matthews, Mike Peplow, Luke Mansell, Morgan Nock, Andy Lander and Simon Jarasinski, who had all travelled from furthest Cumbria after the watching the Harriers encounter with Barrow on the Previous evening. Once the entire squad were assembled Manager Mark Connolly strictly set out the ground rules for the night’s festivities which included an 11pm curfew and a maximum 4 units of alcoholic intake. Needless to say the Player-Manager led by example and the entire team made it safely to the venue of the next day’s game against the Newcastle United Fans without incident.

The game itself was a fantastic display of Fans Team Football etiquette played in an incredibly friendly manner. The Harriers went 2 nil up within 10 minutes as Dave Goode scored one and setup Mark Young for the second; however the visitors took their foot off the gas and let the home side pull 2 goals back to go in at the break with the scores tied at 2-2. Soon after half time the Harriers got the kick up the backside they needed when they went 3-2 down. However a clever tactical change and slice of luck when the home keeper spilt a cross at the feet of Chris Lacey, who made no mistake from 2 yards, meant that the Harriers were once again in the ascendency. Under heat of the hottest day of the year so far it was the visitors who finished the game stronger and two more goals from the stand out Dave Goode meant that the Harriers came out of the game as the victors.

Our North-East counterparts proved to be fantastic hosts and an incredibly friendly bunch of lads. The meeting will hopefully be the start of a friendship which would see the newly promoted Premier League team visit Kidderminster for a return leg when they visit the likes of Aston Villa and Birmingham City.

Finally, rumours of the curfew being broke by the entire squad including the management were quashed, however an internal investigation is under way after reports of late night over indulgence. A Facebook photo amnesty has also been called for while investigations take place.

I did not spill a cross, he smashed a shot at goal, granted I shouldn't have parried it back out to their other attacker to slot in the rebound.

He's the tall player who plays centre mid for them yeah?? If it is I had a real battle with him when my Hampton team played them earlier in the season. He was the difference between us and them that day, sounds very much the same thing for you guys on saturday.
