Back again - briefly

After nearly two seasons of inactivity on this site here I am again. For ages I've been unable to log in and assumed that my account had been hacked, but I seem to have got around this now.

For the past two seasons there have been no matchday photos at the Rose of Denmark, mainly because it had become so hard to find visiting away supporters, especially for midweek games. However, all of the old photos are still on display at the RoD.

I doubt that I'll be posting photos here again, but you never know )

Let's not be complacent

There's no matchday photo today because none of the estimated 350 Scunthorpe supporters at the match made it to the Rose of Denmark before the game.

After the euphoria of the first four games today's 2-2 draw was a real let down. Even though we were 1-0 up at halftime it still felt as if Chrissie ought to be having a bit of a word with the players - a gentle one, mind

After the second goal it was apparent that Scunthorpe were still determined to take somethimng from the game, and Graham and I were considering the substitution options well before they happened. Replacing the rapidly-tiring Hayes with Euell was an obvious way of fighting back against a determined opposition, and bringing on Doherty to stiffen resistance was another no-brainer. Both of these changes were indeed made, but you have to wonder if they should have been made earlier. The first substitution was Green on for Wagstaff, and I can see why that was done, but surely the other gtwo were more important?#

Still, this has been a salutary lesson for all concerned, players, manager and supporters, i.e. let's not be complacent - there are still 41 matches left.

Comments reinstated

Feeling in a really good mood after yesterday's excellent win at Notts County I've reinstated the comments facility. Just bear in mind that it you spot non CAFC-related comments linking to external web sites it'll mean that a spammer has slipped past me once again.

Onwards and upwards?

Tenth MOTO season

CAFC 3 Bournemouth 0, 6th August 2011
Young supporters
This must have been one of the most entertaining and satisfying games we've seen for ages. We've won our opening match in each of our two previous seasons in League 1, but this one was a bit special.

There was the usual 'opening day excitement', with everyone keen to see how the new signing perform and whether there are signs that a promising team is coming together, but this time we were waiting to see how Chris Powell is making his mark. He was a thoroughly admirable player, both for us and other clubs, and anyone who thought he might be 'too nice' to make it in management must have been impressed that he was banned from the touchline last season for making his feelings know to match officials

This was a heart-warming performance against Bournmemouth, partly because The Cherries seem to be a pretty decent team who could well have expected as they travelled up for the match to at least share the points. The most encouraging thing about the victory is that it came as a result of good teamwork and also from sheer hard graft from individuals.

Paul Hayes seems to be really very mobile and fast on his feet for a big bloke and gave the defence all sorts of problems. Dale Stephens scored a superb goal from a selfless pass from Bradley Wright-Phillips after Chris Solly had broken through the defence. Danny Hollands seems to be very good at long throw-ins, and Rhoys Wiggins had a good debut at left back in spite of, or more probably inspired by, sustained barracking from the away supporters. At centre back Taylor and Morrison were unremarkable, which means, I suppose, that they did a good, solid job - must keep an eye on them next match!

Johnnie Jackson looks like the perfect choice as captain - calm and self-assured - and took his penalty well. Scott Wagstaff's belter form outside the area could already be the Goal of the Season. So, exciting times again!

I've been really late this year in printing out the composite Members of the Opposition image from last season - I've promised it to Dermot before the next home league game. And yes, I've decided to carry on with the photos for the 2011/12 season, as you can already see. In spite of there being no away supporters in view for quite a few games nowadays, especially the evening fixtures, I feel that there's still enough general support for our photos from supporters on both sides to turn out another worthwhile image at the end of this season. In fact, this will be our tenth successive season for the MOTO tradition!
