Thoughts on Today

I really enjoyed today. I know Eastleigh have had a bad start, but they're a full time side full of ex-league players, and we were so much better than them. |
A few things I wanted to call out in particular:
Hinchliffe was immense today. I've not been as convinced about him as many on here, but two or three times today he acted quickly and decisively, and he very much deserved his clean sheet.
Turnbull, Dimaio and Osborne were magnificent in the centre. It's great to see players that are so comfortable with the ball at their feet, and that aren't afraid to beat their man.
I don't think Nyal Bell is good enough for this level. Jim wants someone he can throw on who's going to make the ball stick. Bell may get there, but he's not there yet. That's going to cost us points this season if we don't find someone better.
Festus Arthur looks like the best youth player we've produced in a very long time. He didn't look out-of-place at all in that match, and did his job really well for someone so young. I think we may have unearthed a gem there.
You can really see the difference in the standard of football at this level, and it makes such better viewing. I really hope I never have to watch another Conference North match again.
