Writer: Gregory's Revolution
Date:Tuesday April 22 2014
Following on from our one nil defeat to Notts County last night, manager John Gregory has said it simply wasn't good enough and he's demanded that the team stop just raising their performance levels for the bigger games, and start doing better against those sides who are below and around us.
A single goal just after the half hour mark was enough to give County all three points and brought an end to our mini revival and three match winning run.
Speaking to the press following the game, a less than pleased JG said.
'It told me a lot about everyone. I've got to renew contracts this week. I probably should have done it after Saturday when I was in a much better mood.'
Of course Gregory acknowledges that after the break, and especially towards the end, we were much improved, and there were good chances for Matt Tubbs, Gary Dicker and Gwion Williams and we did eclipse them on chances in the game overall, but we did nothing with them again, so it's very much a case of 'as you were' and as we were only a few games ago.
'We seem to have a problem against teams who are low down in the table and I think that's a mentality issue. We need to be a lot better than that next season because we cannot afford to play against teams lower down than us and not perform. We started getting going in the second half, but it was too late and that's really been the story of our season.'
Gregory is true style then goes on to say that if the players had performed all season how he knows they are capable of, and had they performed like that against those below them and not just those above them, he'd probably still be out of a job and former manager Richie Barker would still be here.
He finishes by saying that although players were putting their bodies on the line again, 'you have to do that from the first minute, not in the last five.'
Decisions to be made then, be interesting to see which ones he does, but he's experienced enough not to judge it on one game when he's in a foul mood.
