The weather is absolutely foul in Harrogate this evening - the presenters doing the pre kick off have had to retreat off the pitch. Pouring rain, cold and blowing a gale. Just the weather to level things up.

So true PB. Regardless of conditions and actually, it's in such conditions that a good player will shine through with ball control, skill and thought. I really do not see what Marquis brings to the party..can't jump, can't head, can't control a ball and can't tackle. Tonight he looked as though he had been drafted in from Farlington Marshes and had never met any of his team mates before...waste of space. Mind you, the team as a unit didn't perform well. Anyway, KJ will keep his job for another two weeks when once again we will be served up another shambles of a show to get us more riled!!
The whole backline struggled with the surface, conditions and Town's giant forward and they exposed our Achilles Heel of set pieces. I thought Burgess grew into the match and had a good second half but Evans and Marquis were poor throughout.uspompeyfan wrote: ↑Tue Nov 12, 2019 1:12 amIt didn't make for entertaining viewing and the pitch was an equalizer. As others have said, we looked poor and I hope it was just the pitch and conditions that gave that view...though many previous games would alude to it being more serious.
My key issues for a positive and negative:
Christian Burgess - What is his problem? He used to be so much better, but was made to look poor even by non-league standards, with three major mistakes (two of which combined for the opening goal)
Was it Ryan Williams playing number 7? He seemed to run and run through the game, set up well with Haunstrup especially for the goal, and I think he set the second one up for Curtiss too? He would be my player of the game.
