Bore draw at the Ricoh (by Durham's assistant)
at 19:54 22 Oct 2017

A belated report as I thought I would give myself time to remember the highlights of the game. Frankly there were none. This was the archetypal boring no score draw. I would imagine if they were still playing now the score would be the same.
Without Garvan and Smodicz we are virtually toothless. Mandron is not the answer to our prayers. And Coventry…they have now not scored in four games, look unlikely to score in the next four and are a shadow of the club of ten years ago. I understand from a steward that they do not even have a contract to play at the Ricoh next year. Is playing football ruining the pitch for rugby?
The match itself was dire. How they determine what are shots on goal amazes me. Neither goalie dirtied their monster gloves and knees stayed sparklingly clean. The U’s showed a bit of attacking spirit during the first half without ever threatening the Sky Blues goal. After the break we again decided that an away point would be good and withdrew deeper and deeper and gave the opposition some confidence to go forward. However, as I said on Durham’s match preview I like the pairing of Innis and Eastman but I wish Innis would not play out from the back when he is last man. He got caught a few times, one instance resulting in him and Nazon being booked for a tussle. Eastman looked solid and even featured in an attack where it could be conceived he dived in the box but it was such a poor dive he got straight up without any appeal. Ref was noted to have a quiet word.
All the action, such that it was happened in the last 15 minutes. Lapslie got himself booked belatedly for a poor tackle and then for a deliberate handball within touching distance of the corner flag less than a minute later. Up to that point I had been reasonably happy with his contribution and that of Kent. However sheer stupidity could have cost us the game as we were under pressure for the remainder of the game but without, in all honesty, Coventry never looking likely to score.
To the other point raised on the board, another instance of stupidity on behalf of a very small bunch of U’s supporters which left myself and many around be both distracted and embarrassed. The fact that it left an injured steward needing medical attention should be concern for the club. If as Noah stated it was “youngsters” fuelled with alcohol surely it is in the remit of the club to refuse to allow these guys from travelling on the supporter’s buses. They are obviously not old enough to drive! It’s not the first time and probably won’t be the last but it cannot always be the result of overzealous stewarding.
Four points in a week from two difficult away fixtures should be seen as very acceptable result but in truth Coventry were there for the taking and we either didn’t recognise the signs or have the ability to achieve a result that was in our grasp.

Odd results in Div 2
at 15:59 18 Oct 2017

To all prediction league members.
Could anyone have predicted bottom three teams all to win away from home on Tuesday night.
Strangest result of the night at Coventry and they will be pretty pi**ed off losing to Forest Green and will look to be taking it out on us Saturday. Let's hope we can show same obvious commitment as last night.
Anyone traveling to the Ricoh?

Mariners to sink U's without trace
at 10:22 26 Sep 2017

With the current abysmal away form and also the loss of the unbeaten home record at the weekend I see an extremely torrid time for the U's tonight.
Suspect that JM's team will be Walker, then 10 across the back line.
Have some thought for Durham Exile who will be attending this evening as he probably hasn't seen the U's win away "this century".

.......and does reverse psychology actually work?
May just be an early Christmas present? Hey, first to get Santa in this season.

Alternate U's team for Saturday
at 17:04 25 Aug 2017

1. gerry_us...faced Ray Crawford in testimonial match. Still got the bruises.
2. Leadbelly..the Fisher -
3 Thrillseeker...and Fowler of our time.
4. Mr Happy. Never a dull moment in our defence.
5. Noah 4x4. Natural pivotal player.
6. Wessex Exile. Uncompromising and perfect foil for Noah.
7. PWK. Who else on the wing but Peter Wright's Knees.
8. Burnsie Espana. Continental flair.
9. MFB. Mick, the highest Usual scorer of all time. What better centre forward.
10. Pinoit Noir. A bit of French flair up front.
11. Durham Exile....surely will be present at a U's win eventually.
Sub 12. Daniel ..who in the past has been around #12 in the Usual league.

I think we could do a job against Forest Green. Hopefully the "proper" footballers will perform tomorrow and save us from ourselves.
