Re: Rhyl v Fflint League Cup


Absolute trash the lot of them (bar Tony Davies). We could not string 5 PASSES TOGETHER. We kept HOOFING THE BALL up the pitch to the midget strike force of Hoult and Buckley. Stef and the other defender had a field day, Stef even looked like he spat at our fans... Best (I use that word loosely) of two terrible teams won.

We don't have a game till 9 Sept, why doesn't he play Conno and Rollo. Alex was 'rested'. No Tom Hartley in the squad. Never have I seen such a shite game at Belle Vue.

Those on here who defended the team and management after the last game and called out the negative posters, give me a positive after that game and I'll buy you a pint, I EMPLORE YOU! (and no, squad rotation is not a positive and neither is Tony Davies being a colossus at the back).

Re: Rhyl v Fflint League Cup


Only positive today was the 3 at the back. Having said that, a decent team would have exposed Alvarado first half, he looked short on confidence & like he had no idea how to play that role.

Apart from that it was a poor performance, lacking any real quality. Nothing up front first half and only 2/3 half chances second half. We looked most likely when Tony Davies went up top in the last 10. Were it not for a few well timed headers & clearances we may have nicked an undeserved equalizer.

The time for experimenting to that degree is in preseason. Serving up crap like that will only discourage people (especially the younger generations) from turning up and parting with their money. 120 mins of long ball football aiming at two of the shortest players in our squad. I don't need an A licence to know that was an experiment that was never going to work. Both lads did put a big shift in though, in fairness, although with little end product to show.

What on earth was that tactic of aiming for Brewie/Gerwyn on the touchline from goal kicks? We must have kicked the ball straight out at least 6 times!

Only point of disagreement. Probably a good idea to rest both Alexes - Titch got a knock at Port and Jones wasnt ready for that game. No point risking them in the League Cup.
There was still plenty of strength in squad for a starting line-up to experiment and have experience. Wholesale change up-front probably a mistake

Re: Rhyl v Fflint League Cup


Sorry Ffred, I meant Alex Jones. I didn't expect Titch to be in the squad after going off on Saturday but Alex was in the bar at the end of the 90 mins and he said he was being rested which to me doesn't make sense as we're playing Cofis on Sept 9; to keep match fitness surely we should have played the first team? Perhaps Hartley was working? No Downey or Bell to be seen either?

Re: Rhyl v Fflint League Cup


The baxk three defended very well, and I reckoned that Brewie was our best player. It seems that the team is being told to play long diagonal balls. Why ? as we dont have a target man.

Why is the manager asking them to play long balls when we had 5 in midfield.

Hoult and Ollie were dreadful, they never looked for the channels and couldnt hold the ball up. Cory Williams was never used either, surely hes a better option that these two.

We desperately need another striker.

I concur about Alverado, he is short of confidence and his positioning was dreadful.

Surely theyd worked on a 3-5-2 in training? Did they?

Im scratching my head thinking did the club not want to progress in this cup?

Re: Rhyl v Fflint League Cup


What a complete utter rubbish of a team tonight, the tactics wrong let's play long high balls to our little forwards,get the keeper to kick the ball out of play from the goal kick , no power , no strength, no physical presence, this lot will be lucky to finish in the top six , and it's all down to the manager

Sorry I completely disagree, its the management fault for selecting a shadow team with a new formation. Disgraceful, and disrespectful to Flint , the fans, and the cup.

Re: Rhyl v Fflint League Cup


I really can't get my head around playing a weakened team, we neeed as many fixtures as possible to generate income for the club and we're going to get knocked out of everything at the first hurdle, if we had progressed and played Caernarfon or Bangor the fixture may have been a decent little money earner for the football club

Re: Rhyl v Fflint League Cup


Pretty much agree with what has been said.

When I saw the line up I thought Uh Oh. Although some of the lads did ok, Carroll notably.

With no game for 10 days we really should have been going for this as Flint played pretty much their first 11 yet we still matched them for most of the game.

I didn't think much of them at all.
I am pretty sure their goal was their only shot on target altho they hit the bar twice. I don't think we had many more.

I think 3/4 changes were probably enough from the weekend.

And yes we played far too much long ball, only time we looked dangerous was on the counter but our final ball was woeful and players time and time made the wrong pass.

Pretty cheesed off after last night TBH.

Re: Rhyl v Fflint League Cup


There isn't much more I can say that hasn't been said already.

You won't see a worse game of football than that all season between any two sides. I honestly thought the line up we had could've had a go at winning the game, but it was clear the quality of Alex J, Conno, Rolo and Tom Hartley were missing in key areas.

A positive is how a second string front 5 were able to hold Flint's first team for 110 minutes. Had we been tactically better and had Rollo on the left instead of Diego (who's game for me was summed up by Walsh ordering him to take throw ins to boost a bit of confidence, and him producing a foul throw). James Williams came on in ET and looked to give it a go before the goal while everyone else played hoof ball.

Either way, we're out, it wasn't a big priority as TNS will probably win it, we need to look at our league form and converting draws into wins.
