Re: Season 18 / 19 Comments


Of all the unconvincing games this one seems to have grated the most with the fans.

Leicester, looked a good team especially in the second half when Vardy came on. Yet they only had 10 men for most of the match yet dominated us in every area of the pitch.

Yes we would have settled for 1-1 before the match, but where is the belief, the skill, the battle, the vision for anything than a bunker mentality when we go 1-0 up. The last two matches having gone 1-0 up, 6 points were very much on the cards. Instead it is just the one point, due to silly mistakes and an over reliance on Dunk, Duffy and Ryan to hold the fort (which they do so admirably).

The tables still look good but there is a growing feeling they show a false picture. Still it is only our bogey teams Huddersfield and Palace up next!!

More than half the points we need to survive and it's not Christmas yet!

Re: Season 18 / 19 Comments


Shame about Burnley, but before this last week would have certainly taken 6 points out of the possible 9. Except it does give them 3 points, the same when we played Cardiff away, to state the obvious we do need to grab the point(s) when playing teams going through poor form, like at Newcastle and Huddersfield.

The Palace match was certainly icing on the cake. We seemed to do everything right, that we had been struggling to do of late, be it passing, marking, reading the game and scoring. Certainly be hard pushed to find a half of football at the Amex quite as entertainingly thrilling, as that first half.

Now comes the more difficult bit with some top 6 matches coming up, and Ryan on International duty for a month in January. Thankfully we have that 11 point cushion from the bottom three.

The one team I really want to see drop down to League One and that is Bournemouth (okay two teams with Palace).

However, every time we play them they get the better of us and make us look the team most likely to be playing in League One first. Bah Humbug!

Re: Season 18 / 19 Comments


And so the hectic Christmas season came and went. LDWD, is not bad as a set of results, could have been worse, but also could have been better.

Certainly as the league table stands we are well clear of the relegation zone and that group of 6 teams. The mid table bunch of 8 teams, which includes us, is welcome and hopefully where we now belong in The Premier League.

On the pitch maybe the real winner has been Locadia who's BHAFC ranking during December went from almost zero to hero. There has also been a slight shift in style of play and a more faster counter attacking style, along with not playing so deep, is certainly more pleasing for us supporters.

What will 2019 have in store for us?

10 year wait and we have beaten Bournemouth. Shame it was the cup and not the league, but 1-3 is not a bad result against our bogey team.

Re: Season 18 / 19 Comments


And a month later the league table still looks reasonable and points clear of the bottom three.

However, the dearth of points and wins and goals this past month is becoming a little concerning, not least when one of the relegation looking certain teams wins by putting 4 goals past our usually reasonably solid defence, and after being 2 goals down!

Still two home games on the trot next to help, we hope, establish that gap between us and a bottom three!

I'm not worrying yet Chesh but if we don't get 4 points out of the next 2 games I might be getting a bit concerned.
