My thoughts exactly. That's what happens when you replace Q in the commentary box. What a stonking shot!

Yes, Pratt is phenominal. I can't remember a striker for us with so much energy - he seems to be all over the pitch in the face of the opposition, yet always gets into goal scoring positions and finishes with composure.

Despite the wild celebrations at the 2nd goal, I can't recall a smaller City following at a cup tie. We badly need a decent cup run to get some interest back in the club.

In fact it was a surreal atmosphere all round. The Poole die hards and officials seemed really up for it before ko, talking about the wonderful opportunity a game with Shortwood could offer their club financially. But apart from a bit of singing from their youngsters at the start of the game, it really could have been a pre-season game. Presumably the majority present were glory seekers who offered the home team little encouragement and the massive pitch meant that for long periods you felt like you are miles from the action. And the blindingly low lights meant you couldn't see much of it anyway! Apparently there's talk of them returning to their old home at the speedway stadium - they need to. Still, a friendly club who we could well be playing in the league next season...

Oh, and Brian o'Donnell, a City player in the mid 80s was stood next to us. He has fond memories of his time at Twerton playing with the likes of Moggy, Withey and Payne under Bobby Jones. Only scored twice for us, but as he proudly reminded us, they were against Yeovil...

I'm guessing you didn't read the "Poole Town v City" thread then.

Good work there from Hemmings.
Lovely ball and followed up to almost score for the first. Run to the bye line and then won the free kick to set up the second.

Pratt's second is better than what I thought at the time. A brilliant controlled volley.

His first is a bit different to how I recalled, the keeper made a great save but sort of played it back out and Pratt reacted quickest. Great instinct.

I agree that the commentary last night did not really do just to Pratt's second goal but, that aside, I thought it was excellent coverage - all three commentators were great and it did not cut out once.

It's great to have the live commentary and real thanks to Skyblue for filming.

Worried by what Martin says about lack of interest.....let's hope a Cup run will bring a few back.

I'll be heading to Twerton for the Shortwood game and a few good results will surely get things going again.

Agree with Yuffie. My commentary was loud and clear here in Derbyshire. I repeat that the commentary team and Skyblue volunteer and provide a great service for the rest of us.

I would like to add my thanks too. cheers I would have been at the match if I had not been ill. Sad I am fuming to have missed it but the commentary and the videos go some way to making up for the disappointment of not being there.

Great to see the passion, fist punching and jumped up, from John Reynolds after Pratty's second; it was a "stunning" volley. bounce

Good to see big Chaz getting some recognition. Instead of admiring his ball to Watto, I was amazed to see him pop up in the box getting on the end of a good ball in from Adlesbury and was only denied by a good save from the keeper which Pratty then tapped in for the opener. Held the ball up well for the second goal, drawing a foul from the defender. As Stillman commented, the pitch was about as wide as it was long and Chaz put in an excellent shift chasing down lost causes.

I think that's a good point about Chas. On the radio that were some surprise that McCootie had been dropped and not him plus the formation we were playing, but it clearly worked out very well.

No doubt had we lost then these decisions would have been seized upon and the management team attacked because of it. Unsurprisingly I guess nobody has actually praised them for the changes.

Is that not the way. Many will think the management were just doing their job.

The significant change was Bowman to check the speedy wide man and Gally in front of the back 4. Big praise for that.

And wasn't McCootie carrying a knock/leg strain after Sat's match, so wasn't the selection on Tuesday, to retain Hemmings, a sensible choice? I sincerely hope, for City's sake, that Hemmings continues his gradual improvement, and therefore justifies the faith that management have in him. Mind you, it will be interesting to see who starts games when Allen and Artus are fit again, will it not?

I certainly assumed McCootie didn't start because of his fitness and I'm sure he would have remained on the pitch on Saturday if he hadn't been completely shattered. Did the commentators state that he had been dropped?

I think it's more of a case that if we win it's because of the players, if we lose it's because the management. Although even if they were just doing their job, if they do it well then do they not deserve some praise? You might as well just say that Pratt was doing his job in scoring goals.

The radio commentators initially assumed we were going to play 3-5-2 with Bowman and Ball at wing-back, until it became clear that Gallinagh was playing in front of a flat-back four. And were also surprised that Chas was playing up front with Pratt rather then just behind Pratt and Watkins.

They didn't speculate on whether McCootie had fitness issues but I agree that he was probably on the bench due to that, however I don't doubt this fact would have been ignored had we not won the game.

If he didn't have a hamstring problem he would have been cup-tied and unable to play against Poole, so I guess he still has that injury.
From the Paulton v Taunton FA Cup match: ......."whilst Nick McCootie was rested to the bench to give his tight hamstring problem some respite."
Hopefully he will soon be fully fit.
