Other football league 2020/21 season

Recommended Posts

I think I saw J-Lowe making a hash of clearing it leading to  Tranmeres last minute equaliser at Salford.

When we were all crying that he wasn't good enough but he was being picked religiously week after week, who were those posters who kept saying numerous managers couldn't be wrong? I'm sure a few said he would definitely end up in the Premier League.

Morecambe top of League 2 by 2 points with a -1 goal difference.

Cannot remember a team topping a league with a negative goal difference before.

Ipswich top of the league 1 and Lincoln are second. 

2 former Rovers managers there. 

Lambert at Ipswich and Appleton at Lincoln.

I don’t think anyone could really believe or rationalise it - that was the last line of logical defence.

 

Turns out the lad is like Paul McKenna to football coaches. Seen better players today in the 7th tier than Lowe in his prime.

I completely forget why I ever watched it, and feels almost mean to do this for a game against PL competition, but in the below highlights of Salford's friendly with Everton in September, I did find it hilarious how Lowe's the culprit for almost every Everton chance/goal...

0:53 in fairness, an okay block!

1:24 However, he loses Keane for the headed goal from the resulting corner

2:36 fails to close down a shot from outside the box

4:20 diving lunge fails to stop a pass to his man in the box, who scores

5:28 now at RB, he's isolated, but still giving up way too much space on the left wing, allowing Everton to enter the box with ease

6:39 neat clearance from the long ball, but then probably should've pressed the winger more right after given his support

7:17 not so sure this is all his fault, but a part of some poor tandem defending...

7:42 pretty useless defending of the wide ball, allowing a pass that leads to a penalty

9:25 fails to do anything to defend a cross that leads to two chances off the post and crossbar

I have honestly been curious if Bolton and/or Salford fans have rated him at all in L1/L2 to see if that truly is his 'level'...

(Apparently Scholes is only in charge for as long as Warren Joyce has to remain in isolation due to COVID...)

That kind of money is much needed to a club like Chorley without a benefactor behind them,hopefully they get a big club at home in the next round and get some tv money.

anyone seen this 

 

 

Has anyone else been listening to Out Of Their League, a podcast about the way Bury FC were dealt with - failed? - by the EFL and the FA, and the way in which a 'phoenix club', Bury AFC, has been set up by volunteers in the town? It's quite frightening how much risk EFL clubs are in from individuals and companies who have no real interest in the club, but buy and sell them for, basically, 'buttons' and how the FA and the EFL manage to show that they have complied with what - they say - they are required to do.

It's going to be a 9-episode series - I've just finished listening to episode 2 - and while Bury and Macclesfield have bitten the dust so far, you can't help feeling that they won't be the only ones by a long way. It's doubtless available elsewhere, but I've been listening via www.bbc.co.uk/sounds

Stanley deep in the doodoo there.

In these circumstances emergency loans can be made- wonder if it is a chance for Rovers to get League 1 experience for some youngsters?

Stanley have three more games before they come out of 14 day quarantine and that is assuming none of them develop more severe symptoms.
