Stevenage 2 York City 0 - FA Trophy Final from Wembley

First published in York City FC York Press: Photograph of the Author by

DANGERMAN striker Steve Morison killed York City's hopes of Wembley glory by scoring one goal and setting up an injury-time second in the FA Trophy final.

Stevenage Borough, knocked out of the Blue Square Premier promotion play-offs in cruel fashion on Monday, took consolation by lifting the FA Trophy in front of 27,000 at the home of English football.

Captain Morison got the all-important first goal - after 68 minutes, as City, big underdogs going into the game, were largely outplayed.

His quick-thinking from a throw-in in the fourth minute of stoppage time then saw Lee Boylan seal the win.

The Minstermen were second best but had had a great chance after only 32 seconds.

Daniel McBreen did well to get the ball out to strike partner Richard Brodie on the right, and although he rather scuffed his cross, the ball rolled perfectly back to the Australian 12 yards out - but he too scuffed his shot and it trickled wide of the left-hand post.

The first half continued to be open, with chances on goal coming at regular intervals - though mainly at the City end.

City right-back Ben Purkiss won an important header in his own area, before Boro midfielder Darren Murphy found room to turn and shoot in the box, the effort going straight at keeper Michael Ingham.

City centre-backs David McGurk and Daniel Parslow also made telling sliding tackles, with City's riposte being a 25-yard effort from left-back Shaun Pejic, on 13 minutes, which flew three yards wide.

Back at the other end, Peter Vicenti had a good shooting chance from 15 yards, to the left of the sticks, but, rather than curl the ball into the far corner, he blazed over wildly. Then Ingham had to come out to smother the ball as Boro tried to get goal-side of the defence.

Boro were clearly in the ascendancy and should have taken the lead in the 21st minute when Morison rode a challenge by Parslow to bear down on Ingham, but the finish was poor and was going wide before being cleared by the covering Pejic.

Bostwick saw a long-range effort go wide and Pejic had to block a shot from inside the area by Andy Drury, who also fired a 25-yard attempt over.

City's back four had far too much to do, with little protection from the midfield and even less retention of possesson, with no width and a lack of options on the few occasions York did have the ball.

Vicenti headed over a Drury cross before York finally had a glimpse of goal at the other end, Rusk volleying high and wide after the ball dropped to him 25 yards out.

Ingham saved from Morison from a tight angle after the striker beat Parslow for pace down the inside right, before York had their first shot on target on 34 minutes, though Brodie's attempt from outside the area did not trouble keeper Chris Day.

Boro almost scored at the other end immediately after, as Boylan headed Ronny Henry's cross just past the left-hand post.

Drury curled another effort just wide as Boro again got into the danger zone after more good work from Henry down the right.

City fans had hitherto amused themselves with a Mexican wave and with continental-style flares before they finally rose to their feet for football reasons, six minutes before half-time.

Rusk chipped the ball forward and left-winger Adam Boyes beat Henry for pace down centrefield only to fire straight at Day, who gathered the ball at the second attempt.

Henry looked better going forward and from another of his crosses, Vincenti headed over after rising above Purkiss.

City had been outclassed throughout the half but had the last chance before the interval in stoppage-time - two chances to be exact.

A Purkiss free-kick into the box fell to Mark Greaves 12 yards out. The central midfielder's first effort, which was going just wide, was inadvertantly blocked in a crowded area by team-mate McGurk, and his second, after the ball rebounded back to him, was blazed over.

Although second best, those chances showed the Minstermen were in the game and could always nick a goal.

Boro nearly did just that as the second half began like the first with a good chance. Boylan controlled the ball with his chest in the area and, as City's defenders claimed for handball, fired wide.

City had a bigger shout for handball at the other end minutes later. Boyes, rather than pull the trigger, laid the ball to Brodie, whose effort struck Bostwick on the elbow, but the penalty appeals were waved away, as referee Michael Jones deemed the defender had little chance to get his arm away.

Boyes then found space down the left but, with options around him, cut inside and rolled a poor shot wide of the far post.

City were getting more into the game and had their first corner on 62 minutes. It came when Purkiss' free-kick was deflected wide by the wall - though Purkiss should have laid the ball right to Brodie who, bizarrely, was left in acres of space inside the area.

However, Boro still looked dangerous, as Vincenti saw a 28-yard piledriver tipped round the post by Ingham, while Boylan's cross from the byline was cleared away by McGurk.

This led to the corner from which Morison scored.

Mark Roberts won the header and the striker reacted far quicker than the defenders and stabbed the loose ball home.

City sub Onome Sodje had a hopeful long-ranger, McGurk a weak header goalwards and Roberts headed clear a dangerous Purkiss cross, but it should have been 2-0 when, in between times, Vincenti headed another Henry cross wide.

Brodie saw a free kick go over but, at the other end, Parslow nearly headed into his own goal when diving to clear a Drury cross.

City's last chance came in the second minute of injury time. Drury fouled City sub Andrew McWilliams 25 yards out to the left of the 'D', but Purkiss' curling free kick went harmlessly wide, and Boylan wrapped up the result with almost the last kick of the game after being left alone in the box.

Well-Now is the time to get this club sorted out. What a fantastic display (from the YCFC fans!!!)The defence did very well to keep the score down to 2. It is vital we bring in the following....
1. New left back
2. 3 New mid-field players
3. 2 New forwards.
Now is the time to ship out possibly 8-10 players and bring in 7-8 new faces. We need some experience and quality to get YCFC out of the conference. We were totally out played today. Best of luck to every City supporter for next season. Please please come along next year.

i went to the game today
today the players just didnt look like they wanted to shoot. A number of times on the edge of the area someone could have shot but didnt do so. Also, why did MF take off 2 of our best players today, greaves and Mcbreen. Mcbreen chased everything and put himself about, unlike the rest of the strikers. Greaves was the midfield man hu was winning the headers, so why put on Andy Mac?
Overall, we did well to get this far and we were against a very good team with two very very good strikers.
Well done lads, you all tried your best, we just lacked that little bit of quality

Just arrived back home from Wembley. Tremendous support from the City supporters, who well outnumbered the Stevenage supporters, Perfect Stadium, Perfect Weather, but the same old rubbish from the City team. I know now that they are just not capable of anything better. So its time for a cull, we need to dismantle the squad completely. I personally would also like to see a new Manager as well.

Yes City's support was great but once again City failed to produce the results.
City lacked the clinical touch in front of goal, the defence did well to hold the Stevenage front line for so long.
Midfield was absolutely useless
Rusk was anonymous Mackin couldn't command his opposite number, Greaves played well but was left exposed.
Boyes playing out of position didn't track back.
Most worrying of all was once again Foyle's complete lack of tactical ability.
Pejic was constantly left exposed to Stevenage attacks on the left hand side without midfield supporting him.
Well that shouldn't be a problem to resolve after all we had Russell on the bench,or Mc Williams or our left footed full back Robinson who could have played in front of him.
So what did Foyle do, he brought Mc Williams on eventually after the penny dropped, but oh no he put him in centre midfield in place of Greaves, never mind he's bringing on Russell, he's got the message this time, but again unbelievably he put Russell out on the right.
Foyle has completely lost the plot tactically.
So now is the time to say thank you and goodbye, new manager please.

Not sure if I agree with you about Greaves - we needed to find someone to create from midfield, but you're spot on with McBreen. Between him and Brodie they won just about every long ball thrown up at them. It was a very impressive final performance from the guy.

Time to rebuild Martin, good luck in finding the players we need for next season.

No amount of early morning boozing could hide the fact that York were a hopeless second in that match. Poor old defence - what can the five men at the back do when the six in front offer zero protection. Ok performance from Mackin, perhaps, but we need a complete midfield overhaul. Arsenal missed Arshavin in their Champions League Semi, and some might argue that his inclusion would have helped their progression. I heard similar intimations regarding Adam Smith today, and while I would love that he had been eligible, I cannot be convinced that his inclusion next year is the missing piece in the City jigsaw. The sad fact is that we haven't got half the pieces we need: There are three midfield places up for grabs and two up front. Brodie may have put twenty on the board but, to draw another Arsenal parallel, Bendtner has plundered 14 and I doubt any Gooner would suggest he warrants a starting berth. We have no experience, no talent and no stamina in the final third. I hope the 300k or so from today goes some way to addressing this imbalance because as it stands, York City is a distinctly below-par prospect for any serious BSP opposition. A great day out in the sun could not have been any more predictably undermined. There is nothing enticing or exciting about York City FC as it stands.

Just got home. Still angry about the useless team selection from our gutless manager. Sick of the whole thing at the moment. I don't care about personalities or egos, what I care about is having the best players on the pitch for the game. Why play at Wembley with no width and no left footed player or a right winger to run at their right footed left back? Instead we continue to play a right footed left back (who is a decent centre half as proven by our lack of goals conceded when he played in that position) ourselves and leave him completely exposed as Boyes is a centre forward not some random half and half player between midfield and attack. It's an utter shambles and the quicker Foyle goes the better. He gave us all the excuses for playing this formation as a desire to stay up and he's a 442 man. Well I'm sorry but you had the opportunity today to prove that and you failed dismally. We ran Stevenage ragged with pace at their place earlier in the season, they had 2 first choice defenders out today and we didn't put them under any pressure. Please leave Mr Foyle - you can be Mr Porters assistant at Port Vale.

Sorry Mr Foyle, before todays performance I was all willing to give you a chance to rebuild the squad over the summer but now no, please go. You are tactically inept. If your going to play 4-3-3 the it's one man in the centre with 2 WINGERS who can get into the box, not 3 strikers. Ok we might not of had Adam Smith today but surely Russell can play out wide? Lets face it we do not have the squad for 4-3-3, you should of played 4-4-2 with 2 wide men, we have another one of them or have you forgotten Shepherd (wouldn't surprise me after you disgraceful treatment of him)? What we need now is a complete overhaul, get rid of the central midfield (except for Hogg if he'll take a pay as you play deal) then bring in 3 new ones, 2 new strikers and a utility man to cover at the back, get rid of Robinson and give McWilliams a chance IN HIS NATURAL POSITION. Yes Shepherd and McWilliams down the left would be inexperienced but could they possibly do worse then the dross we've had to put up with this season.

P.S. I never saw Rusk acknowledge the fans when he was subbed? Did he? And if he didn't then sack him now, not to acknowledge people who've travelled that distance down is a disgrace

City are dreadful. If it wasn't for the FA Trophy final this would have been the worst season ever. I'm not a City fan but will go to the odd match but I've now lost interest. This team aren't good enough to lace the boots of Barnes, Walwyn, Kiely, McMillan etc etc. Why should the fans get behind the players when they clearly couldn't give a toss? Boyes, Sodje and McBreen just don't score enough goals to be strikers. I don't care what else they do, their job is to score goals. If a chef is rubbish at cooking but is good in the garden you get rid of him. Foyle needs to do the same and sign even more useless Wrexham rejects.

The players tried today - they just lack quality and the majority need to be shown the door.

I think it's hard to have a go at the fans, in the second half they had little to lift them off their seats. The ball seemed to rarely get in Stevenage's half.

The game summed up York's season as a whole - the back five were excellent but the same cannot be about the midfield (Simon Rusk might as well have been sat next to me rather than out on the pitch).

It's hard to have too much of a go at those playing up front because they get little service or support from the middle of the park, by the time the midfield got anywhere near them Stevenage had cleared the ball and were on the break in acres of space.

What the game shows to me is that this squad is extremely limited and far too large. I'm not sure it mattered which team Foyle picked, to be honest.

The board now have to make a major decision over who is to be in charge and then let the manager go about building a small squad of players to be supplemented by youngsters and loan signings. It needs to be quality, not quantity.

Some thoughts on today...fans, second to none, I have supported York since the mid-eighties, prob about the time those lot behind the goal were born, but you know what, fair play to them, they support the team passionatley, they prob wont have seen the two genuinely good teams from the mid-eighties and early nineties so a big well done to them to turn up, make a racket, create some atmosphere and enjoy themselves. But the team...thats it, no more messing around, players who are contracted, Wilkinson, Farrell etc, loan them out again, get someone else to pay their wages. Other than that, Ingham, Parslow, Mcgurk, new contracts...and thats it. The rest, including Brodie and Sodje, get rid. No good saying keep him, he might do better in a better team, he's got potential etc cos this team is hopelessly, hopelessly out of its depth, cant pass, move off the ball, create or score chances or even run for 90 minutes, and that is a disgrace for full time professional players. The core of this team is rotten and it needs changing, starting right now. Dont let a few good late season results against pathetic teams paint a rosy picture. Today was a good day out, and despite the result I am proud of us to get there...but that's all. The fans dont deserve this team, this football, this constant failure any more. I'ts too much.

true true vienetta. The true fans who support York week in week out we deserve so much more we give everything we live breath city but don`t get what we want in return. If everyone who went to wembley to support York went to every home game then the club would have far greater means to invest in better players and facilities to get the minstermen back where we belong in the English league, however people now a days would rather suport Leeds or Man u coz they are higher up in the league. York City needs true supporters there is a few of us but how many of the fans that went to wembley can say they go to as many matches as they can. It has come to the point when York have got to wembley everybody goes why? coz its wembley!!!! Look at all the miles people travelled to go to wembley but wont go to the matches on a weekend. WE ARE YORK forever but the majority of the people wont go to see them play in York. People support teams when it suits them why? I live down south and travel to York as much as i can to see them play when most of you have it just round the corner but don`t go. I am York I am True I am city till I die and so proud of it!!!!!

Took my grnadson yetserday and we had a great day. we were realistic enough to realise that our midfield were unlikely to be dominating.
First half we did cause them problems with the long ball to the forwards. Ok secong half we were outplayed.
Back 5 is fine for me. also we do need Brodie his effort (without support) cannot be faulted and he does appear to love the club.
Keep Boyes he is the future(he is still learning and has a vision that others cant match.
Been going to City since the mid 50's and looking forward to seeing the true City fans next season!!

Bet theres not many who can say they stood all day singing in an all seater stadium. behind the goals and above the corner flag brilliant! How did Morrison get MOM though? Scoring a shot at the second atempt? To me Parslow or maybe Ingham where the star men! Apert from that the midfield was poor and I doubt Boyes will ever have a better chance to score at Wembnley but unlucky to the lad.

I found watching York City play at Wembley a stark reminder, if one was needed, of how poor a team this really is.
Watching so-called professional footballers seemingly unable to string a few passes together was simply awful. I think the team did well to get to Wembley and Stevenage were nothing to write home about.....but there has to be a massive clearout or York look certainties for another relegation struggle next season.
Lets hope Mr McGill see's sense and invests the Wembley money in the team.
I have a bad feeling about next season already.....

Now is the time to get ruthless, get Martin Foyle out, wrong man in wrong job! how often do we hear shouts for effort, passion, pride etc? there is very little evident of any week in week out, management and certain players. Time for the board to swallow a bit of pride and get Billy McKewan back, now! and before some start, look how far he took us with no money? and how easily we got rid in a sticky patch! We need stability, we had it, and, we gave it up cheaply, how quickly the previous seasons exploits were forgotten!
If we want effort, passion and pride back? get him back now! Could you imagine him allowing players to underachieve week after week? he kicked and headed every ball, made every tackle, shouted, encouraged, kicked backsides when they needed kicking! and when did you ever see him sitting down?
We got to the play offs under his charge with no money, I think he could take us one step further with money to spend! maybe not next season, but with a bit of patience, not too far off.

Nice to see most people are being realistic. Although Stevenage are no world-beaters, it clearly showed that City will never challenge for anything with the present squad; woeful in many departments, and Martin Foyle and the board will surely realise that. Where improvements will come is anyone's guess but no matter who is at the helm, I would defy anyone to challenge for promotion with the present squad.
Being in this standard of football I'm afraid you get what you pay for, and unless a large influx of cash is forthcoming (which I very much doubt) then we will be in much the same boat in 2009/10.

I wish I could get as angry as many of you, but I can't. I was utterly resigned to defeat beforehand, and I wasn't surprised that we were beaten by a clearly better team. It showed in the behaviour of the fans too. The Stevenage fans were loud and vocal, expecting the win. Our fans were largely quiet and subdued, waiting for something to lift them (I won't say anything about the idiots with the flares).

What was disappointing was the lack of effort, especially in the second-half, by our players. They just gave in. They abandoned the game-plan which had been working okay in the first half, and started playing too deep and lumping balls upfield which we were never going to win. People can blame Foyle, and his tactics and substitutions didn't help (though I agree with subbing McBreen and Greaves who were both poor). We didn't have the squad to play 442, so 433 was inevitable (and Punk_ian is wrong, in a 433 you play 3 men in the middle, not 1 and two wingers). In the second-half the right move would have been Robinson for Greaves, Sodje for McBreen, Robinson left-mid, Sodje right, Boyes and Brodie up front, Rusk in the centre.

But ultimately it was the players that bottled it and let the side down. For me, it's impossible to judge Foyle on this season as the squad is not up to the task and there's nothing to be done about that till the summer. I'm not convinced he's the right man for the job, but nor am I convinced he's as clueless and inept as many want to paint him. Time will tell (though I'm not convinced he'll stay).

Credit to Ingham and Pejic, the only players on our side to come out with any credit. In all other respects Stevenage showed us what a good side at this level looks like; strong, disciplined, organised, calm, and with a spine of quality. Above all, they had a winning mentality, which our players lack. And that's not the manager's fault.

I wish I could get as angry as many of you, but I can't. I was utterly resigned to defeat beforehand, and I wasn't surprised that we were beaten by a clearly better team. It showed in the behaviour of the fans too. The Stevenage fans were loud and vocal, expecting the win. Our fans were largely quiet and subdued, waiting for something to lift them (I won't say anything about the idiots with the flares).

What was disappointing was the lack of effort, especially in the second-half, by our players. They just gave in. They abandoned the game-plan which had been working okay in the first half, and started playing too deep and lumping balls upfield which we were never going to win. People can blame Foyle, and his tactics and substitutions didn't help (though I agree with subbing McBreen and Greaves who were both poor). We didn't have the squad to play 442, so 433 was inevitable (and Punk_ian is wrong, in a 433 you play 3 men in the middle, not 1 and two wingers). In the second-half the right move would have been Robinson for Greaves, Sodje for McBreen, Robinson left-mid, Sodje right, Boyes and Brodie up front, Rusk in the centre.

But ultimately it was the players that bottled it and let the side down. For me, it's impossible to judge Foyle on this season as the squad is not up to the task and there's nothing to be done about that till the summer. I'm not convinced he's the right man for the job, but nor am I convinced he's as clueless and inept as many want to paint him. Time will tell (though I'm not convinced he'll stay).

Credit to Ingham and Pejic, the only players on our side to come out with any credit. In all other respects Stevenage showed us what a good side at this level looks like; strong, disciplined, organised, calm, and with a spine of quality. Above all, they had a winning mentality, which our players lack. And that's not the manager's fault.

Its all over now and its time to rebuild and move on. I cant blame Porter for the Port Vale job, but he is obviously not so committed to York so off he should go. Foyle has proved to me that he is not a manager,(a coach maybe), so off he should go. We need a proven manager with a player coach to keep the wage bill down. This needs to be acted on now so the new management can have a look at the shambles we have and keep what he wants and get rid off the rest. Yesterday is in the past, its from today that counts.

Great weather, Great stadium, Great experience and Great day out for the kids, well desides the football. Unfortunately the league table doesn't lie and the best team won. Well done to Stevenage and their fans, we are living on our history and memories were as they are living on the future. Our future doesn't lie with this set of players and very inept manager. Foyle simply must go, what manager allows Ingham to boot the ball straight to the their goalkeeper or defence time after time, the whole team annoy's me, no passion only Parslow and Brodie deserve any recognisition. As to the fans, I suggest Rangersfc1690 will be a bit red faced when she reads her drunken comments this morning. There is only 2000 real York City fans that turn out week in week out so the other 13000 that attend yesterday are day trippers and same people that you find at Old Trafford. The McGills need to have a long hard look at themselves over the next couple of days and once they have stopped counting the Wembley pounds make some proper footballing decisions for the first time with advice from outside Bootham Crescent and decide where this much loved football club is going, then maybe just maybe we can get some of the 13000 supporters back through the turnstiles and bring some long over due success back to this club. If someone had told me 16 years ago when celebrating the Play Off success that we would be back at Wemebley playing underdogs to Stevenage in the FA Trophy Final, a cup won 3 times by Scarborough, then I would of laughed at them.

FOYLE OUT, no point wasting another season!!!!

In the Non-League Paper this morning, Foyle says he hasn't spoken to any of the players about next season and is waiting to be told what the budget will be before he makes his decisions, which suggests he thinks he is staying.

If he does stay, I hope fans will treat next season as a blank slate and give the guy the chance to build his own team, then judge him on that. But I doubt it, we are a very reactionary bunch.


Same article quotes Greaves saying he expects to leave.

I think Imps right, Foyle does deserve a chance to build a team and then judge him on that, as he inherited a load of rubbish. But, for me, he's skating on thin ice. True, no manager can make bad players good, but they can at least work on the basics. We quite literally had no midfield yesterday, hopelessly overhit balls into the channels, more in optimism than with any realistic chance of picking out a player, which either drifted straight out of play or came immediately back to our overworked defence. First touch, passing ability, movement, finishing, fitness, all shocking throughout the team, especially the forwards and that is the kind of thing an ex-player, especially a striker should be able to work on. And our set pieces are an utter shambles, carry zilch threat from all dead ball situations, in fact they dont even seem to know whos meant to be taking them a lot of the time. Does make me wonder what they actually do in training.

The only person in the whole squad that should definately be resigned is Michael Ingham. It would be a big mistake to retain the defence en-block as well, for both McGurk and Parslow are very similar in the way that they play. We need a big strong commanding centre back to add some muscle. Both full back positions are also up for grabs. The mid-field doesnt need discussing - it just needs replacing. Finally up front, Brodie deserves another season, unless someone offers silly money, but as for the rest "Goodbye". Harsh comments I agree but there are far better players in non league football than the ones at our club. Obviously finances will determine what changes are possible, but drastic measures are needed.

Think we should resign Ingham definately and McGurk, Parslow and Brodie with the rest released. As you say though we do need a big strong no nonsense defender (which we have needed for years now, Mitchell-King from Histon or Branston from Kettering maybe?) to play with either McGurk or Parslow with the other, probably Parslow, kept as back up.

Really hope a quick decision is made on the manager, I personally hope we release Foyle and Porter as they have done nothing to inspire confidence among players or supporters and Porter even announces he is applying for another job on the eve of a Wembley final, which to me seems a very unprofessional attitude..

Mass clear outs are the usual reaction from fans following a poor season, but I'm naturally a bit wary of them, you have to be careful of what you wish for, especially at a cash strapped club with little or no money to attract or buy good players. Mansfield threw a brand new team together last summer, under a manager I think most City fans would agree was superior to the last two incumbants at KC and they dissapeared into mid table with Billy Mac on his way himself in a matter of months. Teams take time to gel and the close season is short so I would normally want to see a good nucleus kept with extra quality added in weak areas. Trouble is, there is no nucleus, and they are all weak areas, bar the keeper so I dont really see any other option than as Old-Head says, say "goodbye" to those we can say goodbye too.

With the benefit of 24 hours reflection, just a few thoughts on yesterday's events.
I drove to London and it was an inspiring sight seeing so many cars and buses from York heading down the M1. It was quite amusing that they all (apparently) decided to stop for a 'comfort break' at the same motorway service station.
Having reached London I was pleasantly surprised to be able to park all day for £1.00! Please note York City Council.
The view of the stadium from the underground station was truly a sight to remember, as was the queue to get a burger.
The stadium itself is magnificent, and is a worthy successor to the old one, twin towers and all. When I started watching City in the 1960's I dreamed that one day I would see them play at Wembley - but I hoped that it would be an FA Cup Final, not the FA Trophy (wasn't able to go to the 1993 Play off Final).
The match itself played itself out much as I feared; a few bright patches from City but a better Stevenage side eventually asserting themselves and coming out on top.
Disappointing, but I'm proud to say that I've seen City play at Wembley and no matter how annoyed I've been at some performances this season, and how poor I feel the majority of the current squad is, I know that I'll be at Bootham Crescent come the start of next season hoping for better things.

Does it matter where the information came from? all that matters is we get a good price for mcgurk and then find someone to replace him.

No, doesn't matter at all, just wondering if you had heard where they were supposed to be going? Hopefully we get a transfer fee for both of them IF they go, if they do (hopefully they won't) we are not going to be left with much from the current squad, it's going to be a massive rebuilding job in the summer if we need a new defence as well as midfield and strikeforce as the defence has been the highlight of the season.

Talking to people as we were leaving Wembley on Saturday, very few of the supporters had a good word to say about Martin Foyle. Some even said that they would not be attending matches as long as he is still in charge. But judging by the way Jason McGill & Sophie Hicks embrassed him as the City squad received their runners-up medals, it looked to me as though he is still going to be here next season.

Back in the early 90's, living in Stevenage and watching them play the likes of Hitchin, Fisher etc, I used to wonder what it would be like to see YCFC play this "little" team one day. Well, after a number of league games and a Wembley final, no doubt who the "little" team is. Unbelievable.

Actually, Stevenage have always been well looked after by the local council (i.e. Borough) and in the short term, will be in a better space than City simply because they have their heads above the waterline.

I've got to agree with an earlier post suggesting Brodie isn't the answer. I had a half way line seat yesterday and whilst we did have a non-existent midfield and SB were too good for us, frankly his contribution was dire with lots of huff and puff, but very little imagination. Frankly, we need to start again, from back to front, top to bottom, but as we don't have two dimes to rub together we're going nowhere fast.

As for that idiot Rangersfc, Brighton numpty.....S*d !ff

Useyourgumption did and I agree with him. If we can get even 6000 of the trippers that enjoyed their day "down the smoke" we will have a good chance of success next season. Yes, a poor one I admit and Iit will be interesting to see who is retained and who released but we did have chances, din`t take them and as underdogs that is what you must do ! We were beaten by the better side and we must look forward. Lots of daft comments on here ( especially the first !) Does tax payer know how much money visiting supporters bring to the city ?!

Great day, nice to meet up with mates and enjoy the atmosphere. Bottom line - we were crap (and we know we were!). If we keep Foyle this is what we have in store. Fact - we are worse under him than the buffoon Walker. Fact - he blames the players but he is employed to manage (motivate) and bring the best out of them ("what can I do if they don't listen to me") Well, I know what you can do - Vale seem to rate your number two more highly than you so go there and be his number two! Just don't give this guy the reins next year. Spend all our spare cash on a decent manager and let him mould a team from -as we need to do -cheap options. That will be young up and comers and experienced last hopers. Ring a bell? First team to score 100 points- where were we two years earlier? We really are in trouble and it is the management we need to get right first. As in all walks of life -everything else works if the guy in charge is up to his job. This one isn't.

Like so many others, I had a great day out at a much better stadium than we're used to, but realize we were beaten by a much better team.
As for those who rage at us irregular attendees, we don't all live less than four hours drive from KKC any more, have the spare cash to go regularly, or family/personal situations that allow such privileges. I'll never support any other team (though I may watch others on occasion), and I won't miss out on Wembley, Old Trafford, or other big occasions, but the kind of opportunity that took me to Cardiff with 19 others (OK, 3 were drunken Scotland fans down for the rugby next day) that Friday night so many years ago doesn't exist any more. Unbelievable to see so many turn out for City at Weymouth on a Friday night, and fabulous to see so many make the effort to go to Wembley for the club. All of us - regulars or not - deserve better than this season's mob.
Looking forward to next season already, as always happens after the last game.
