Jonathan, man-of-the-match
Comment from the Coach


A disappointing game today - as a 3-7 loss does not tell the true story of the match.

The simple fact is we are scoring enough goals to win more games - but we are just leaking too many goals - this is clearly evidenced by our goal difference. From the sideline (always a safe place to be...) it is clear we let the opposition have too much easy ball. We work hard to clear to ball from defence but concede possession too easily as we do not value possession as much as the opposition. So the ball is immediately coming back....therefore we spend too much time defending and the law of averages then means too many scrambled goals - we need to work on being very jealous with our possession...

We started the game at a disadvantage as we lost 3 players over the weekend due to injury and sickness - so we were left with just the bare 11 players - and they did themselves full credit playing and running hard all game without the chance to be rested - very proud of their collective efforts despite the scoreline. Whilst the referring was generally good in picking up the many infringements against us, sadly, the severity of the some of the tackles was not appropriately penalised.

James played a great captain's game today, a coolly taken one-on-one goal in the first half and a well floated goal from the corner in the second half. He also covered huge amounts of ground during the game to help cover defence. Gareth took a great goal from a superb header off a well-taken Greg(?) corner. Francesco made some courageous saves, especially late in the game. In what I feel was a personal-best performance today, Jonathan was man-of-the-match. He showed no signs of recent nagging injuries, played a good-physical in-front game, ran hard, tackled hard and exerted good central control whilst showing some great subtle ball touch. It was a pleasure to watch.

So, we just need to keep scoring those sorts of goals whilst not letting the opposition score as many - sounds very simple...
