I think our aim is more immediate, fight our way into the top half and keep the playoff door from shutting as long as we can. Keeps the thing interesting, even if actually making them is highly unlikely.

Not out of the question but very challenging. We’ve played more games than all the clubs above us (apart from Cambridge) and below us Carlisle, Harrogate and Scunthorpe all have games in hand.

But it’s great to be looking above us more than below us now :))

Good result. Well ground out against a team fighting for survival who have been in decent form. Not the most entertaining, but a decent result for sure.

This is excellent form we are in. Very pleased with how things have been in the last 3 months. Definitely in with an outside chance of the playoffs at this rate!!

Shouldn't underestimate that result.

Barrow had 12 points from the last 15 I think, big strong side who looked organised for the most part, if a little blunt up top.

We didn't play well for at least an hour of that game but still found a way.

I'd love to see Reads distance covered stats. He, working from wide, together with Pett and Lines in CM really worked their socks off.

And a round of applause for the ref, I think he actually broke into a jog twice all game and really disliked using his whistle. Missed so many blatant fouls by both sides.

Amazing how much better Coker has been since we have started concentrating on retaining possession. His biggest issue is when we are in defensive transition, but because we don't cough up possession so easily anymore, he gets caught out far less frequently. Moreso, we get to see more of his strengths, which are getting forward and getting crosses in, because our build up is more patient and he's able to keep up better.

But he's one of those players who throws a fit whenever someone makes a mistake or doesn't give him the ball. I'm all for passion and wanting the ball, like you say, but his demeanor comes across as more negative than positive. He seems like he'd be a nightmare to play with.

And moaning at the referee after every single fucking thing. Like, the referee has given you the freekick. Why are you still moaning? What else do you want?

I just think he'd be so irritating to play with.

Two things annoy me when I'm refereeing a game and that is one of them. The other is moaning because the whistle isn't instantaneous.

Barrow don't look great. You'd think on the basis of what we've seen so far, we'll get a chance to score eventually. Look better when we build through the midfield, with the "wide" players tucking in and the full backs overlapping. The long ball is more effective than normal, cos we are winning the second ball.

Prosser is a total liability.

He's shit. Slow, clumsy, can't pass, makes loads of mistakes.

At least Cuthbert is very strong and wins his headers/battles, it makes up for a lack of speed and poor distribution.

Wildin is fast, and provides good thrust going forward, so you can overlook his poor distribution and mistakes.

Prosser doesn't do anything good.

AE is right, he is a liability. Even more so when he doesn't have TVC's pace to help him out.

Just because Prosser isn't the worst defender we have had doesn't mean he isn't a liability.

He's far worse than Cuthbert and TVC, and I'd even have Marshall ahead of him because at least the guy can pass the ball relatively consistently.

If Prosser isn't passing the ball 5 yards, he's launching it into orbit or giving it away.

Just because they are in League Two doesn't mean you just accept them being shit.

Like I said elsewhere, Cuthbert has many strengths which outweigh his weaknesses. A good League Two player.

TVC, is pretty well rounded. Makes the occasional mistake, as you'd expect from a League Two player, but has a lot more strengths than weaknesses. A good League Two player.

Prosser has more weaknesses than strengths. He doesn't stand out for being great at anything, yet has some pretty glaring shortcomings.

Accepting a player isn't going to be a "complete" player is one thing. Anyone who is good at everything isn't playing in League Two, thats fair enough. But there is clearly a standard of player that we have seen exists in League Two that means we can expect more than what Prosser gives us.

I dont expect the players to be perfect, but I think the bar needs to be higher than Prosser.
