After the disappointment of last week I was looking for a response from our lot and wanted to see what they were really made of and they answered me in fine style with a solid performance and victory to complete the treble over Marlborough Ladies this season.

Last Sunday the first-team lost their first league game of the season away to promotion rivals Plymouth. Therefore, it was important to bounce back and we were looking for a response from our team.
There wasn’t really anything spectacular about Slough. I didn’t feel they had any players who were vastly superior to ours, but what they did have and used very well, was their experience. They clearly had players who have been there and done it before and that told as the match progressed and they capitalised on […]
This was a really good and committed performance from the players and collectively we deserved to win the match as we contained Bristol City really well and also created some good opportunities ourselves.
I have been reflecting a lot lately about the teams that are at the top end of the Reserves division this season, particularly Slough and Oxford, who have pretty much dominated the upper part of the table from the outset. The one thing that has set them out from the rest of the teams we’ve […]
The recent line-ups have suggested we’re planning and developing now for next season. There were a lot of youngsters on the pitch and given that we’ve recently played the likes of Antonio German too, who also made the squad again, it’s clear to me that we’re developing for next season.

When you coach a football team, or even when you follow one as a fan, either from the sidelines, in the stands or from watching them on the tele, no matter what your level of experience is with football, you end up forming opinions and making observations about players and their quality.

I really liked the way we started the match and thought we looked cool and composed. There was a control about our play and a technical superiority early on that Forest Green struggled to deal with and I sensed right from the start that we had enough in the locker to win the game.
It was a bit of a dull match if truth be told, but there were some positives to take away. It was a darn sight better than when we visited Bramall Lane earlier in the season and I thought it was marginally better than when we played Norwich the other night too.
Oh dear. How did we lose this one eh? It’s easy to get upset and point the finger, but we were the better of the two teams and for one costly error, should have taken all three points from this game or at the very least, one.
