And a satnav for the rest so they know where the other team's goal is?

Weird how they think Penfold has a better chance of scoring than Maddison

They don't. These are grid prices. No thought goes into them.

Looks like Gwion at wing-back and Maddison up front.

So our two best attacking players are out of position AGAIN.

Could have got 9/1 for Maddison scoring first!

Never had a clue that's how we'd line up.

Makes sense, though, getting Gwion up the top of the pitch where he should always be and taking Calamity Jack out of the middle and out wider for the ultra-reliable Taylor.

I'd happily pay the price of a season ticket just to watch Granty ply his trade. So so clever. Good to see the partnership with Doughty back. Makes us tick.

Marcus wins games by himself when he's up for it. Today was one of those days.

Looks like DMac's Twitter account is 'working' again after a quiet few weeks.

Absolutely pumped after today. Every single player on the pitch put themselves on the line today. Captain Calamity was superb and For me Taylor is the real heart of our side. Midfield was superb. Defence rock solid :comeon:

Moving Taylor to central defence and Edwards into midfield improved the side enormously. Lopes contributed well as did Grant big-time.

If ever a goal deserved to win a game then it was todays winner, can't wait to see if it looks as good on TV as it did at the game.
Equally am loathe to be too critical when we not only walk away with three points, and moreso obviously after our run but a very rare clean sheet......however,
Thought the boys all worked extremely hard which result apart was surely the biggest plus especially after recent performances, but I still think we looked disjointed, lost the ball far too often, kicked it straight into touch far too often and bar the last 10/15 when Shrewsbury were forced to push forward again created next to nothing, and all previous comments about playing people out of position apart were again totally reinforced today.

Edwards and JM (with very limited service i grant you) and particularly- (disagreeing with the comment above) Leo all gave totally inaffective performances, but have to say, I too thought Grant was quite superb and can inly assume MM got MOM purely on his wonder strike.
Have to concede as well, from back to front I was quite impressed with the way Shrewsbury played football proving their league position is no fluke, they passed the ball really well, quickly didn't panic in possession and they consistently got into some great positions. Thankfully for us or we would have been in big trouble, they too suffered from no final ball.
Truly great result though and let's hope combined with a cup win next week it help gives the boys their mojo back because currently it's been well hidden....going to enjoy my pints tonight thats for sure!

Absolutely. One result, that's all it was.

We're a match for anyone on our day but ultimately playing three at the back when we have zero specialist wing-backs at the club will cost us.

At least that confirmed they're still playing for the manager.

Go on to beat Trannies and qualify for the next phase of the FLT and things will be looking brighter.

Desperate day for Ceenitall, though. Not only did GM mastermind a win over the leaders but Tom Nichols scored too :-(
