Michael Coulson stars in York City’s thrilling win at Fleetwood

York Press: Victory over Fleetwood Town sets standard for York City boss Nigel Worthington Victory over Fleetwood Town sets standard for York City boss Nigel Worthington

NIGEL Worthington confessed that Michael Coulson has been unlucky to lose his starting place at York City after the winger’s key role in the win at high-flying Fleetwood.

The Bootham Crescent boss made his admission after seeing substitute Coulson set up Wes Fletcher for an injury-time winner in Saturday’s 2-1 victory over the Cod Army.

Coulson was dropped from the first XI following the 2-0 defeat at Hartlepool and, after featuring from the bench in last week’s 2-0 loss to Chesterfield, was given another cameo at Highbury for City’s tiring full-debutant Will Hayhurst on 83 minutes and his impact proved decisive.

Worthington could not have been more pleased with his contribution, saying: “Michael has been very unfortunate to miss out in the last two matches.

“I have explained that to him but the game is no longer about 11 players and that was summed up at the end when we took a player off who had done a good job and brought another one on, like Michael, who is capable of doing what he did.

“It was a good move on the left side and he worked his way into the box before putting a ball across the face of goal which is always dangerous because there is a chance somebody will get a touch and it ended up getting us the winning goal.

“Prior to that, all 11 players had been at it all game, but it was just a case of young Hayhurst, who played as well as anybody else, picking up cramp.

“We had the ideal replacement to come on and I keep telling the players it’s not a team game, it’s a squad game, so you have to keep a clear head and be ready when you are called upon to do a job.”

Following on from a disappointing showing against Fleetwood’s promotion-chasing rivals Chesterfield, Worthington reasoned that Saturday’s triumph now represented a “benchmark” for the standards he expects from his team between now and the end of the campaign, starting with this weekend’s home match with fellow mid-table outfit Cheltenham.

He added: “We were playing a very good side so, to go there and take all three points, was a very good achievement. We did what we are good at and, when we do that, we can get good results.

“We got off to a decent start and grew into the game the more it went on so I am delighted with the three points. This result is a benchmark now because, in such difficult conditions with the cold, wind and rain, we played some very good football which we didn’t do against Chesterfield.

“It’s Cheltenham at home next and we have got to stay focused and get our teeth into the game and show the same resilience, courage and guts to get another good result because winning at Fleetwood is a good platform to work off but, if we get an inept performance this weekend, Saturday’s game will count for nothing.”

City were without skipper David McGurk at Fleetwood due to a back injury, meaning midfielder Russell Penn donned the armband and Keith Lowe and John McCombe were paired together at the heart of the defence for the first time.

On that switch, the City manager said: “Dave’s back spasm did not clear up at all, even though we gave him every chance to recover but, hopefully, we will get him back in good shape this week. John played there with Keith instead and had a good, solid game.

“I said to the players at half-time that the whole game would change in the second half because we were playing against the wind.

“We knew that there would be a lot of balls going into our box and that Jon Parkin is a handful getting knock downs but we dealt with it and got what we deserved.”

A BRILLIANT hard earned result through a great team effort and fantastic spirit. The defence was solid despite the unfortunate enforced absence of Dave McGurk so all credit to them.

I read a lot of positive and negative comments on these threads but the reality is that we ARE rebuilding on a limited budget and this takes time. The display against Chesterfield (who crushed Bristol Rovers yesterday) was unacceptable and hopefully will not be repeated again.

City proved yesterday that they are capable and able to beat the best teams in the division which is very encouraging for the future. We will achieve mid table this season with a much stronger squad equipped for league football.

Next season I expect us to be challenging in the top half which will be great taking into account our financials with play-offs a real target.

So whilst the debate this season continues keep the faith as we continue to rebuild and stabilise as a football league club.

The squad IS taking shape with positive signs so please support the team, the staff, the manager and the board as we continue to rise from the dark times.

great comment robiniorocks but bill do you have to have a little pop at everyone who doesn't share your love of NW, i have no problem with him myself think he's doing an ok job, but he came and he will go but york city will still be here ,it can't be healthy to get too attatched to a manager as it will always end in tears. if NW is saying it's a benchmark for the players it should also be a benchmark for himself ie playing players in thier correct / prefered position unless of course injuries / suspensions prevent this

Bill and his alter ego never give the impression of being City supporters - more like Worthington sycophants. However, I've no problem with anyone rejoicing in a City win.
In my mind it is difficulty to take his views seriously as there is a lack of perspective coming from not watching many games.
This then leads to attacks on those who express opinions about what they have seen.
We have a team that will have good games , mediocre and bad. Hopefully picking up enough points along the way.
The worry for many is more about the style of play and the missed opportunities that result from too negative an approach.
Nevertheless, like West Ham supporters in mid-week , we'll be content if we pick up points.
However bitter attacks against those who express disappointment, when there's performances like Accrington, Bury, Hartlepool , Chesterfield are not serving a purpose.
On these pages there's the danger of content becoming over balanced -with too little incisive match/squad comment and too many rushing to take the chance -often on thin pretext - to bull themselves up with "told you so"s.
Nevertheless some of the spats at times can be quite entertaining.

For me, we now have real indication of NW's approach and the players he has recruited are clearly fitting his mould. That means when we lose there will be criticism because crowd entertainment isn't a high priority - it puts the onus on successfully garnering points.
But hasn't that always been the case?

WELL THAT WAS A LOAD OF RUBBISH. Not only do I watch games I watch them train also. Do you ? I don't sit in the stand and come home and write a critical comment I watch young players a CFD, schools , and young players matches at various league clubs.

FFS Bill. Are we not true supporters unless we watch the club train now. Plus we have to watch all games, young players, and young players at other clubs. Get a grip man , and accept everyone has opinions. That's what forums are for. I will be expected to wear a YCFC onesie next. Ha ha ha .

We will achieve mid table this season with a much stronger squad equipped for league football. Next season I expect us to be challenging in the top half which will be great taking into account our financials with play-offs a real target. So whilst the debate this season continues keep the faith as we continue to rebuild and stabilise as a football league club. The squad IS taking shape with positive signs so please support the team, the staff, the manager and the board as we continue to rise from the dark times.[/p][/quote]TO ALL THE MOANERS-----YOU READ IT HERE....A Brilliant comment you put everything into context, Well written Sir.[/p][/quote]great comment robiniorocks but bill do you have to have a little pop at everyone who doesn't share your love of NW, i have no problem with him myself think he's doing an ok job, but he came and he will go but york city will still be here ,it can't be healthy to get too attatched to a manager as it will always end in tears. if NW is saying it's a benchmark for the players it should also be a benchmark for himself ie playing players in thier correct / prefered position unless of course injuries / suspensions prevent this[/p][/quote]Bill and his alter ego never give the impression of being City supporters - more like Worthington sycophants. However, I've no problem with anyone rejoicing in a City win. In my mind it is difficulty to take his views seriously as there is a lack of perspective coming from not watching many games. This then leads to attacks on those who express opinions about what they have seen. We have a team that will have good games , mediocre and bad. Hopefully picking up enough points along the way. The worry for many is more about the style of play and the missed opportunities that result from too negative an approach. Nevertheless, like West Ham supporters in mid-week , we'll be content if we pick up points. However bitter attacks against those who express disappointment, when there's performances like Accrington, Bury, Hartlepool , Chesterfield are not serving a purpose. On these pages there's the danger of content becoming over balanced -with too little incisive match/squad comment and too many rushing to take the chance -often on thin pretext - to bull themselves up with "told you so"s. Nevertheless some of the spats at times can be quite entertaining. For me, we now have real indication of NW's approach and the players he has recruited are clearly fitting his mould. That means when we lose there will be criticism because crowd entertainment isn't a high priority - it puts the onus on successfully garnering points. But hasn't that always been the case?[/p][/quote]WELL THAT WAS A LOAD OF RUBBISH. Not only do I watch games I watch them train also. Do you ? I don't sit in the stand and come home and write a critical comment I watch young players a CFD, schools , and young players matches at various league clubs. Do You ? until you can be my equal be careful what you write.[/p][/quote]FFS Bill. Are we not true supporters unless we watch the club train now. Plus we have to watch all games, young players, and young players at other clubs. Get a grip man , and accept everyone has opinions. That's what forums are for. I will be expected to wear a YCFC onesie next. Ha ha ha . yorkandproud

After the Chesterfield game I walked out thinking that it would be a long time before I returned such was the dire performance of our home team. So the Fleetwood result was a mighty shock and I listened to probably the last 60 minutes of the game on Radio York wondering how York City with virtually the same team could come away with three points. Was it down to an inspirational talk by Worthington in the Dressing Room prior to the game, a change in tactics, or simply that York are always under too much pressure at home to put on a good performance. I have to say that playing 'Banjo' on the wing when his best position is at right back is a complete puzzle to me. As indeed bringing on Coulson late in the game as a substitute confounds all reasonable understanding when he clearly should be in the starting line up.This business of kicking the ball aimlessly out of defence from reasonable starting positions only serves to emphasise that the York Manager has no designs on having a mid field policy! Whilst also I have my views on Ingham's reluctance to stamp his authority in the 6 yard box it was indeed a strange decision by Worthington to leave him out of a team that had won its last three games.
Despite all this and my concern that the Manager does not yet know his best side I shall return for Saturday's home game!!

Every York City fan is entitled to an opinion about the club that he/she supports. It can become a bit boring when after every defeat some fans call for the Manager to be sacked. But it can also be a bit boring when after a win the mercenaries try and tell everyone that the Manager is the best thing since sliced bread. Opinions will always differ, this is only human nature. It was a truly fantastic result at Fleetwood, but it will be wasted if we dont build upon it. Everyone should be focusing on our next match against Cheltenham. Cheltenham are just below us with games in hand. So this is a game that City need to win.

Getting back to the football, a number of Fleetwood fans on their forum have complained that their tactic of hoofing the ball was ridiculous because of the high wind and they have praised City's approach of passing the ball around on the ground, which was much better suited to the weather conditions.. This raises the question as to why NW doesn't let the team play this way more frequently. I'm hoping to be over for the Cheltenham match and hope to see us attacking the from the off, passing the ball, not just hoofing and hoping again - these three points are vital. COYR

Before certain individuals might have a pop at me can I say that I have no problem with Worthington as a person nor do I question his honesty and/or integrity etc - indeed how can I as I don't know the bloke.My consistent view aired on this forum has always been that I just do not like the type of football he (usually but not always) favours - much the same as I never liked the approach of such as Howard Wilkinson (of whom Worthington is a "disciple"), John Beck etc etc..To hold such views does not diminish my passion for York City and it will always hurt when we lose and be wonderful when we have a win as yesterday. The point "Tug Job" raises is interesting because it seems to me that after a few what might be termed "mini crises" performance wise during his tenure at York City Worthington has , as it were, loosened the shackles , and let the team express themselves more - ie less hoofball and more of a passing game.I believe we have some good players and can combine different elements of playing style whilst still being strong and disciplined.One wonders if the players have had some input here as undoubtedly playing people in the correct positions and mixing long ball/passing as appropriate seems to work better for this squad.An occasional contributor to these forums (who was I believe a Norwich supporter) has mentioned how as it were Worthington would make strange selections/go off at a tangent etc - I think we have seen some of that at York with him also.Let's hope he is now learning from his errors..

Can we talk about football now, please? Calling a fan a 'turncoat' for calling a bad game bad and a good game good is bordering on the ridiculous. I'll say it now, to make it clear - I don't think NW is good for York City in the long run. I'll give him credit when he wins, I'll turn up to games and cheer the team on, I'll even admit I was wrong if he has a lasting positive impact on the club. But for the record, I don't like the way he sets up his teams, I don't like the way he treats players who are 'out of favour', and I don't like the style of football he sets up. I think he's assembled a fairly good team of players, but I don't think he gets the best out of them consistently. Saying ' well done NW' after our Fleetwood win isn't going back on what I said after the dreadful Chesterfield game, it's just giving credit where credit is due. I got sucked in to a mud-slinging match with OAH, which I regret, but I'm in no way going back on what I said. Maybe block-capitals are the best way to get through to Bill Bailey - I HAVE MY OPINIONS, YOU HAVE YOURS - GET OVER IT.

My my there is some nonsense spouted on here. Let me say where I stand. Supporter since 66 and now fortunate enough to be able to see most matches - maybe miss 5-8 per season due to work commitments and holiday. Never been to a youth game, don't even know where training ground is. A win on a Saturday makes such a difference to my weekend - at 55 years of age it shouldn't but it does and I guess nothing is now going to change that. I certainly don't let result spoil my weekend for others.
Started posting on here recently and in the main I just try and post a balanced view of the match, mainly I hope for the benefit of those unable to attend, but also good to see what others say in comparison.
It's always apparent that folk see games differently and I get to notice who sees a game like me - this helps as when I cannot get to a match I know who's views generally match mine and so I know who to watch out for to get what I think will be a balanced view.
Over recent years I really liked Mills - other than everything being MASSIVE - which I see he continues with now at Gateshead. On balance and with a heavy heart I supported his sacking because he was just too stubborn. In came NW and I can tell you that as we lost at Torquay last season I thought we had blundered. Thereafter he pulled something out of the bag and so his stock rose for the summer.
Pre season I was optimistic that a years experience and better looking squad would mean a better season. But as I posted at the time with Yorkshire CCC still having two Championship games to play City had the max quota of loanees. For me that is crackers and suggest s that NW had a poor pre season. I now think he has had a third roll of the dice so I reckon he has nothing to complain about in terms of backing.
Personally I feel that he just doesn't connect with the fans, can't explain why but feels that way to me. His interviews with BP are generally tedious though a better interviewer might help.
So that's my overall view. Don't think that I have ever attacked anybody on here and agree with the oft maligned Duffy that it needs to stop and get this forum back to a footballing discussion forum.
If anybody knows a tablet that I can take for the fortunes of YCFC not to matter so much please tell me. That said didn't the cold just evaporate as Wes slotted home at ten to five on Saturday? Priceless.
This is a proper club with proper fans who by and large behave themselves and know how to laugh at themselves. A win for us means so much more than those 'project driven' clubs in the Premier....let's remember that and get the discussion on this forum back to the standard that our club warrants.
Wouldn't be a great surprise if we are inept on Saturday though would it? :)
Wouldn't mean we think any the less of YCFC though would it?

Not sure if the Pop Stand is the best place to be.

How many fans will be wearing their 'Worthington Out' T-shirts on Saturday I wonder?
This really is too much - you were the one who called those of us who tried to remain positive and get behind the team during the 16 match winless run last season "happy clappers" (presumably intended as an insult, although since it came from you I took it as a compliment!); you were the one who called GM a "vile man"; you were the one who questioned GM's integrity; you were one of those who openly and consistently mocked the team, the management and the board, last season, especially when the team didn't play well. You are happy to mock and attempt to belittle posters who do not agree with you, but you only succeed in demeaning yourself. I know teenage girls like yourself are naive, self-obsessed, and lack life experience, but if you are unable to be positive and are not prepared to consider that the opinions of others are valid, you'd be better off not posting at all.

I really hope we will get at Cheltenham from the off on Saturday as we are a much better team when we attack; as NW himself has said, the Fleetwood victory will count for nothing if we do not follow it up. I hope NW will select the right team and tactics to allow this to happen, COYR

Yes, you are too much and as per usual, wrong (and I'm not going to insult you back). If I've said those things, they'll be available in the archives somewhere, but you'll not find them as I've never said them. I've never mocked the board (without the McGills the club would have died long ago), I've never referred to Mills as a 'vile man' (but I didn't like his attitude or his lack of competency at league level - ask Notts County fans), and I didn't enjoy watching sub-standard players and poor performances week in week out. Your problem, along with a few others that post on here, is that you're still bitter about Mills getting the boot - the term 'Gary clapper' was coined to describe those like yourself who wouldn't have a bad word said, even though it was patently obvious we were heading back to the conference. So go on, continue to be the hero behind your keyboard and I'll continue to support the club I've always supported through thick and thin.

Yorkcityluke goes in there, and he commented just after the Chesterfield game that he and others were full of mockery and sarcastic cheers for the team (such is their wonderful support when we're not playing well). How many fans will be wearing their 'Worthington Out' T-shirts on Saturday I wonder?
This really is too much - you were the one who called those of us who tried to remain positive and get behind the team during the 16 match winless run last season "happy clappers" (presumably intended as an insult, although since it came from you I took it as a compliment!); you were the one who called GM a "vile man"; you were the one who questioned GM's integrity; you were one of those who openly and consistently mocked the team, the management and the board, last season, especially when the team didn't play well. You are happy to mock and attempt to belittle posters who do not agree with you, but you only succeed in demeaning yourself. I know teenage girls like yourself are naive, self-obsessed, and lack life experience, but if you are unable to be positive and are not prepared to consider that the opinions of others are valid, you'd be better off not posting at all.

I really hope we will get at Cheltenham from the off on Saturday as we are a much better team when we attack; as NW himself has said, the Fleetwood victory will count for nothing if we do not follow it up. I hope NW will select the right team and tactics to allow this to happen, COYR
And by the way, a manager that can't win a game of football in 16 attempts should perhaps find a new day job.

Thanks Bill, and the same to you. Some people fail to understand that while Mills was being the big man at Alfreton, Grantham and Tamworth, Nigel was managing at Premier League and International level. Nigel's having to work with players who are of a lower quality than what he's been used to, and it wil take time for him to find his feet. That said, should we have another 16 game winless run, then he should be shown the door also.

Really guys, is there any point at all to this discussion board if all it amounts to is arguing the toss over whose opinion is right and whose opinion is wrong? And why, after such a brilliant win (for which Mr. Worthington and the team and a gale-force wind deserve credit) has Bill Bailey been allowed to stink up this discussion board? May I make a suggestion to everyone except Bill. If you find yourself getting riled by his deliberately toxic comments, realize that he is a bully and is almost certainly schizophrenic. Stop typing and take a deep breath. Step away from your keyboard and go do something else. Do not press ‘Send’. Come back later and write something interesting about football so we can all have a proper discussion. This will cut off his oxygen supply. For Bill, I have a challenge. If you stay off this board until the final whistle blows on the last league game of the season (starting from now) I’ll donate 50 quid to YCFC. Really. I’ll do it. In other words, I’ll sponsor you to f*** off in the interests of City’s coffers, and prove to everyone how much you care about York City. Others may want to join in. I have a feeling my money is safe, but why not go for it Bill? See how much money you can raise!

Absolutely Agree - Good result and the "Opinion Police" are out in force.

Really difficult to work out how well we played between the BP commentary & the highlights on TV! Our 1st goal was yet another York corner that hit their 1st defender, but this time he made a mistake - think I would put that down to the weather rather than cunning by the young lad. Their goal certainly adds fuel to the goalie debate. Our 2nd was very good & late enough not to cause too much distress.

At best NW has a serious communication problem (like a couple of his supporters on here) his admission in the interview with BP that he does not like making substitutes unless absolutely necessary is baffling at best.

Onwards and Upwards - weather forecast for Saturday is not good so perhaps a repeat performance, especially as we have some inside knowledge!!!

I'm always puzzled by posters whinging about the content of other people's posts (thus diluting the content even further) especially as it's an open forum. For the good of your stress levels, if you don't like a post, ignore it and move on.
Agree entirely , I respect other's views even though I might disagree with them..
Rather than argue amongst ourselves let us just discuss and exchange opinions without resorting to knocking lumps out of each other
We are all fans of this great club of ours ....surely we can express our views in a civilised manner .....Nothing wrong with a bit of banter and humour but no need for the nasty personal stuff !!!!

You can have that one for free. A response was inevitable. Starting from now. You're up to 100 quid already. See you in May.

Something that gets overlooked by people who are just trolling, is that this discussion board is really valuable to those of us who do not live near York or even in the UK and so cannot easily get to the games. Reading the comments and views of people who have watched the games is a great way to stay connected to our club and know what's going on. But when the threads become toxic we miss the chance to hear those views. For example, we could have had a good discussion about what role people think the weather played in the Fleetwood result, or why Michael Coulson was relegated to the bench when he is clearly one of our best and in-form players. By the way, I noticed that Ryan Brobbel was on the bench for Boro at the weekend. Apparently he was recalled from York because he was not getting game time.
