Decent start from us
great effort from Wheels, just wide of the post
Lots of lovely stuff but no snap up front. Everyone of the attacking players are playing really well as individuals but we need to join the dots. If we do we will get a hatful.
Infuriating replays just as we’re breaking forward.
FFS out of nothing Alfie May scores with a deflected effort - sods law
Alfie May is going to end up with a statue at AP even though he never played for us.
Not the best covering but decent hit that.
Cheltenham had been looking decent on the counter. We may have to flip to a second half team to get the win!
Wheeler definitely has the edge over Vokes.
Midfield needs to get structure. Wheeler needs to drop or Freeman come more central.
Not sure why Wheeler is higher than Freeman really. Wheeler more industrious and can chase, Freeman better at the finishing pass and should be the 10.
Grimmer doesn't know whether to push up or hold back to keep a shaky right side.
We need to get our foot on the ball and slow the game down as we did for the first 15 minutes or so. We are so much better than this showing so far, we are just horribly disjointed at the moment.
Vokes not getting any joy so far
Also, having Vokes who could be a top striker in this league, and treating him like a lamppost to stand upfront is so bleak
This is rather pony
We have so many players who are good on the ball yet struggle to get it to their feet.
I shall look forward to @eric_plant enlightening me about Sam Vokes’ first half performance. Has he won a single header? Apart from the weak one right in front of goal when, to be fair, he was in a Cheltenham sandwich.
Wake me up when it’s over.
McCleary has spent 45 mins running in to defenders
The finer points, that is.
Hopefully this is the reverse of the usual tidy first half away from home, woeful second...
Spot on. All part of the frustration. A few shots wouldn’t go amiss.
Didn't think we were bad early on but it's all a bit pedestrian
Correction. They probably would.
An expert might be able to tell me why an established striker with a great record and undoubted capacity to score goals can be so easily nullified? Is it us? Is it opposition tactics?
Lots of positives. The lads gave everything. Never too high, never too low. We win and lose as a team. We go again.
Twice in a minute now Cheltenham players have held onto it, delaying the restart when it's our ball.
Sooner they bring in an extension of the kicking the ball away rule to immediately ban players touching it when it's given against their team the better.
Honourable mention @ValleyWanderer !
If we lose this it will be the most disappointing result of the season - no excuses with injuries this time, we are very nearly full strength.
It's us it's not them, we only gave him the ball anywhere near the goal once.
