 Alloa game
Topic Originator: WORST  
Date:   Mon 10 Sep 10:05

Anyone else think we'll get beat in this game?

I don't think we are good enough to beat them, and think we'll struggle to keep them out, and struggle to score.

If it pans out the way you think it will then it should be jotters for Johnson.

Yep. Anyone who loses to Alloa should be sacked.
I can see the sense in your point.
Now where did I leave my Unicorn?

If we can play a defensive system that doesn't have 3 out and out centre backs either getting in each others way in the middle or looking like a fish out of water in gaping spaces in wide areas I think we can win.

Shipping goals is an issue which hopefully four at the back can resolve ,However scorning goals is another problem.

We certainly have good enough players to win. It's more a case of putting them together as a cohesive team.

In terms of AJ, I don't think this will mean a great deal. He will not be sacked at this point and a win won't do much to change the views of the disgruntled element.

If we continue in the same vein to the end of the quarter, then he may well be in the danger zone. I hope he does the usual and turns it around before it comes to p45s getting dished out.

We aren't scoring many and not even creating too many clear chances. We kept a clean sheet on Saturday but neither team were up to much tbh. Could be a narrow 1-0, to either side.

Alloa narrowed their pitch by 9m for this league to the UEFA minimum. That tells me that they fear width. If I was a manager opposing them that would encourage me to stretch the game and get the ball wide.First goal will be crucial.

I was struck by how narrow Borehamwoods pitch was and how little space time there was anywhere. Hopefully we can make the wide open spaces of EEP count in our favour.

I thought the Boreham Wood pitch was almost the same dimensions as the Emirates as Arsenal trained there and their reserves played there?

A bit of research reveals an aerial photo of Borehamwood pitch with pitch markings which suggest the dimensions are around 61 X 108 yards ( my calculations as I can't see any official figures)
EEP according to Wiki is about 69 X 113 yards so considerably wider.

I accept that these might not be wholly accurate but tends to back up what my eyes were telling me. Sat along the touch line you felt very close to the penalty box line.

If we are to get beat, that’ll be 3 straight home defeats. When was the last time we were beat in our first 3 home games?

Surely we will manage to beat Alloa. At some point things need to click and we will see the style of football we played against Hearts & UTD. If not am gonna be like a bear with a sore head. Doesn’t half put a downer on yer weekend when the footballs mince.

We’ll win, aj has been lucky with the games where they have been seen as make or break.

Last season he was lucky at the turn of the year that we had Dumbarton and Brechin back to back which I think saved him, we then brought a midfeild in and went on from there.

Just sitting here drenched in my own negativity!
