5 – Buuuuuuuuuuuussssssssssssssse
Can you beat a last minute winner and limbs flying all around? I’m not sure you can. It was the shock of it all last Saturday. AFC Fylde had us pinned to the ropes for much of the second half, but then a moment of wizardry from Kalvin on the wing, a gamble into the box from MB and a header to send us all into scenes of jubilation…those are THE moments we all live for at Plainmoor and Mark’s impromptu photo captures it. Meanwhile, Matt Buse has filled in admirably for the injured midfielders and given Gary Johnson decisions to make – considering he couldn’t even command a place on the bench at the start of the season, that is pretty impressive. Man of the week no question.
4 – The One That Got Away
Tuesday night saw TUFC walk all over the Ebbsfleet defence, and the night was almost perfectly wrapped up when FV’s shot cannoned in off the crossbar. Surely a goal? “No” said the officials, with the linesman way behind the action and unable to give us that 5th goal. Melanie filmed the moment and we were only happy to share it, with the natural reaction being general disgust. Being a team player I’m sure the very impressive Frankie will agree that victory was the most important thing. It won’t be long before he puts it right – this weekend would be nice…
3 – 101 Pts For GJ
Gary Johnson continues to flourish at TUFC. 64 years-old last month, but still kicking (and heading) every ball and loving life down at Plainmoor – bloody brilliant. We have a small squad and have suffered injuries, but the gaffer has us in contention and dreaming of League Two football next season. He’s the no.1 manager in the National League and will not accept failure in 19-20 without a huge fight. Bring it on.
2 – Home Sweet Home
So Plainmoor will remain our home for the foreseeable future, as Nightingale Park plans were shelved by Clarke Osborne and the youth system became a priority (for now). Are we happy with that? I should say so! The doubts will remain on CO and his ownership of TUFC due to his past dealings (and reluctance to deal with the TUST), but the hard facts show a club moving in the right direction on the pitch and off it.
1 – It Was Gary Owers…
A light-hearted no.1 from National Obsession, who have basically been on fire recently with hilarious songs, podcasts, tweets and even radio time for Mr Consistent (don’t mention the Fylde header) Liam Davis. Is that Kalvin Kalala song still in your head?! Well done lads and keep spreading the good word of TUFC.
