Dooming Out

Manics went back to losing ways on Sunday as another scratch side struggled against one of the divisions best footballing side from KO to the very end. Their misery was compounded with the news that keeper Robinson broke his arm in a clash with his own defender soon after the match adding to this seasons doom.

Paranoid Plight

Manics started in a bubbly fashion; full of glee after a Blay prank on Baker in the dressing room which got the lads geed up for the match. However, the positive start was matched by Priestwood who looked strong at the back and threatening in attack. Fenton, spurred on after his Bruce Lee impression last week, and Blay, in unfamiliar territory at left back, contrived to mess up and gift Priestwood the lead.

Gross Dismay

Try as they might, Barnard and Goddard couldn't get a grip on Withers in the midfield as he began to pull the strings. Wing on the left wing was giving debutant Bradley a torrid time, weaving in and out, and eventually increasing Priestwood's lead to 2-0 with a solo effort. Almost within minutes, the ball was lost in midfield, the Manics slowly dropped back whilst the speedy attack of Priestwood caused panic in the Manics back-line once again, as poor old Henry's 57 year old legs were tested by legs 2 thirds younger. It was 3-0, and just half time. Manics though had had chances, and looked dangerous from set pieces.

Woeful Gloom

The mud was getting heavy, and Manics passing was woeful. The players were still expecting the ball to ping about like it does on astro turf, so passes were continually coming up short. This frustrated O'Connell and Wilson who were starved of service in the 1st half. So when half time came, opinions were expressed, questions were asked, positivity emphasised.

Negative Vibes

At 4-0 Manics were in disarray. To top off an awful morning in the pouring rain, Robinson broke his arm when trying to claim a cross. He tried bravely to carry on but his pain was clear for all to see. The cards were shuffled, Barnard went in goal, Goddard dropped to left back, Baker filled the middle, and Worthy played left wing. Immediately Manics were tested, and Barnard made one particularly fine save for such a fiery little man.

Mundane Blame

As Blay hobbled about up front like a man with no feet and the most other players chasing shadows, the Manics toiled for the rest of the game. However a swift attack involving Blay, Wilson & O'Connell, the ball ended up on the head of super sub Jason Worthy who scored in his third successive game, making the score 5-1.

Waste of time?

The performance and the game itself on Sunday showed exactly why this season has been a complete waste of time for the Manics. It has yielded only more injuries and more distress. Only one thing can make the season bearable for Patsalides and his weary troops, and that's victory in the final game against Wokingham United which without Robinson is looking impossible. The Manics need a miracle…
