Come on you Reds!
T&M Utd 5 HBFC 2
Went to Mitcham today to see a real Jekyll and Hyde performance from Boro which definitely had echos of some of the bad times from last season. (Oh,no.....!)
First half Harrow were again too slow, flat and off the pace.Tooting 3-0 up at HT, 3 really soft goals given away. Wedid have quite a bit of possession and acouple of chances but mostly we didn't do anything with it. Hes agood player but dont think it works with Shaun playing so far up front, hes better IMO in defence or just in front of.
Anyway second half, much better, quicker more chances and two good strikes from George Moore and the unlikely comeback was on. We hit the bar and perhaps if that would have gone in I think we would have gone on to win it.
But indiscipline saw 2 red cards , Cumberbatch and Uade sent off, and 3 other bookings. Didn't think it was a dirty game but don't give a picky ref the chance to be a jobsworth. Tooting took full advantage of it . Final score 5-2.
We've got to be more focused ,disciplined, sharper ,confident and take those chances or it will be more bad news against Thurrock.
Thats the way I saw it anyway.

Seeing the arrival of Ryan Moss to liven up our attacking options was good news. He played well & made the Tooting keeper make a couple of decent saves.
Sadly in the first half that was the only good news .
2nd half a much better performances but being well beaten by a team in the bottom 4 is very worrying.
Agree that the management seem to have strange tactics & formations in the Midfield areas. Preddie is a holding Midfield player or centre back. Surely Michael Bryan or Charles Banya are better options in the attacking Midfield berth, or if we have both Preddie & McLoed in Midfield, Cumberbatch should be much further forward.
We created plenty of attacking situations in the 2nd half by sadly Stanislaus failed to look anything like a striker,I think most Supporters have lost faith in him now, he works hard but you cannot see him scoring a goal.
