Morcambe Player Ratings

Colin - 5 Struggled, not a captain, and wants relieved of that title straight away, so he can concentrate on goalkeeping.
G, Jones - 7 Solid and industrious.
Anderton - 6 Not his best game but did nowt wrong
Webster - 7 Looking more solid as the weeks roll by, apart from the odd couple of small mistakes.
Hayden - 8 Captains performance, as said in other threads, I would be happy if hes a captain in waiting, superb.
M. Jones - 7 IMO, surprisingly hooked, thought he was doing OK and was keeping the midfield together
Watt - 6.5 Not quite as good as in recent weeks but nevertheless kept plugging away, hope to hell we can get him back next season, but I have my doubts
Mellish - 6 Looked like a fish out of water first half, although did improve after the break, I must have been watching a different game though for the sponsors to give him MOTM
Thomas - 5 Frustrating afternoon, subbed just after half time, what looked like some sort of injury
Alessandra - 6 Huffed and puffed all afternoon, although doesn't really look like hes got a goal in him........unfortunately.
Patrick - 7 Took his goal really well, has pace to burn, and will get better the more game time he has.

Subs: McKirdy - 6 A marked man, but made a couple of telling runs
Bridge - 5 Ineffective, pushed out wide right, which is not his game
Fela - 5 Not really on long enough.

Beech - 6 Strange substitution's, but credit where credit is due we looked dead and buried at 0-2 down, but rallied to a well deserved share of the spoils

Ref - 6 Despite some dubious decisions he DID let the game flow and was equally as bad/good for both sides

All in all reasonably satisfied with a point, especially after being 0-2 down, after saying that Morcambe were woeful apart from the 'wonder strike' second goal, so a little bit disappointed we didn't get all three.

Collin 4 - arguably could’ve done better for both goals, could’ve flogged a third aswell

Jones 5 - looked weak in the challenge, gone downhill since he signed
Anderton 5 - gets caught out of position too much
Webster 6.5 - struggled to deal with Stockton which is worrying
Hayden 7 - few mistakes and missed a sitter, good goal though

Mellish 5 - looked lost in midfield, the game passed him by
Jones 6.5 - usual battling display
Watt 7 - slow start but improved as game went on, whipped in some great corners

Thomas 4 - bloody awful
Alessandra 5 - nice touches but his worst game yet
Patrick 6 - struggled on the wing but worked hard, great goal

McKirdy 5 - poor
Bridge 6 - looked quite bright, embarrassing top knot though
Olamola 5 - did nowt.

Collin 5 - too many mistakes, needs to catch the ball more often

G Jones 6 - solid but nothing more
Webster 6 - no big mistakes today but worrying that Stockton looked half decent against him
Hayden 6.5 - great goal and looked very good at times but distribution could be improved
Anderton 5.5 - similar to Jones but looked like a cart horse with his booking

Jones 6 - disrupts play and also keeps it moving
Watt 7 - MotM love his desire for the ball and his passing
Mellish 6 - some good bits but largely ineffective

Thomas 5 - so much talent but when it doesn’t work it doesn’t work
Alessandra 6.5 - apart from Watt the player with with best touch and vision, would love to see him play in support of a number 9
Patrick 6 - great goal and there is a player in there but he needs to find a way to make it count

First half was an absolutely shocking standard of football. When Stockton is one of the better players on the pitch you’ve got problems. It was just two really poor sides -I was entertained though.

Collin 3 - Poor, lower average league 2 keeper, seems to be getting g worse last few weeks.

Jones 4 - ok
Anderton 3 - 1st half appalling
Webster 2 - After a few decent games was back to being dreadful, made Stockton look good.
Hayden 7 - Like this lad, decent game from him.

Mellish 4 - motm, I must of watch a different game
Jones 6 - decent enough at this level, standard game
Watt 7 - Decent game, glad to have someone that can take a corner

Thomas 2 - didn’t look fit, one trick pony really poor
Alessandra 2 - dreadful
Patrick 4 - one extra for the goal, thought he was poor also

McKirdy 6 - I thought he brought a bit of life and spark, I thought he did well when he came on.

Bridge 4 - ok
Olamola 1 - waste of time, gone downhill massively

At least we’re not Stockport

Collin 3- Absolutely dreadful
G Jones 5- Reasonably solid
Webster 3- Got turned many times by one of the worst strikers we’ve ever had
Hayden 6- Future captain ,commanding performance
Anderton 4- Looked knackered & struggled for pace
Mellish 5- Covered a lot of ground not Motm though for me
M Jones 5- Struggled 1st half but improved afterwards
Watt 6- Great set piece delivery
Thomas 2- Probably his worst performance in a Carlisle shirt
Allessandra 4- Nice touch, links up ok but his finishing is very poor
Patrick 4- Great goal but was terrible on the wing

Mckirdy 5- Some decent runs but was shut down by being doubled up on
Bridge 3- Still waiting for him to contribute something
Olomola N/A- What’s he going to do in 5 minutes with no service. Confidence looks shot, feel sorry for him.

Still yet to see this positivity. Yes, we have improved but we have missed good opportunities to get more wins.

We have got to stop giving bad teams a two goal head start. Beech must be going mad at them for daft mistakes that keep costing us. We’re getting more of the basics correct now but still a long way to go.

Collin - 3 - One of our best players last season, one of our poorest players right now. Should have done better for both goals and surely the main reason behind the defense looking so shaky whoever a cross comes into the box.

G. Jones - 6 - Solid and reliable.

Anderson - 5 - Gets caught out of position or under the ball too often. That tackle when he got booked yesterday had been coming most of the game. Charged in to win the ball when showing the lad down the line was the easier and more obvious option.

Webster - 2 - He made Cole Stockton look like Didier Drogba. Nuff said. Should have been sent off at the end. Stockton would have had a clear shot at goal if it wasn’t for the tackle.

Hayden - 7 - Very good player at our level. If Van Dijk had scored that header the pundits would have been going wild. Real asset for us.

M. Jones - 6 - Solid and reliable. Never lets the team down.

Watt - 7 - Always wants the ball but needs to stop with the fancy double drag-backs. Waiting to see him on the good pitches at the end of the season. Really hope he stays for a whole year next season.

Mellish - 7 - I like him in the midfield. All action and wins midfield headers and tackles which we weren’t doing at all before Christmas. Tries to break forward and has a good pass in him. Think there will be a few goals in him by the end of the season.

Thomas - 5 - struggled on the heavy pitch and against a fullback who could match his pace. Got a knock quite early, I think, which affected him badly. Would always have him in the team as he can win us a game in a moment.

Patrick - 7 - With game time and coaching will become a good player at our level. Has a good leap, great pace and a hugely powerful shot on him.

Alessandra - 6 - Tried hard and has a good first touch but no great quality. Doubt he will be with us next season.

McKirdy - 6 - Why didn’t he go down at the end!? Defender dived in and all it needed was a touch. I can see him being the impact sub for the rest of the season with Patrick preferred down the left.

Bridge - 4 - Would have been 5 for doing nothing in the time he was on but minus 1 for having a man-bun.

Olumola - He tries, and I prefer him to Loft, but that isn’t saying much.

Colin - 4 mistake for the goal, but no ones getting on Thomas he should of cleared it properly ? Looks shot of confidence.

G Jones-7 again does absolutely nothing wrong, just consistent, would be my player of the season.

Webster - 2 abysmal look at how far out of position he was in the run up to the 2nd - then him Hayden and watt made a calamity of marking the man. The mistakes have been present still latley, just been getting lucky no one has capitalised. Oh and he made Cole Stockton look like prime drogba - lucky not to get booked early on and then again for pulling down Stockton with a miniute to go when he was through.

Hayden-5 quite poor bar his goal, should of been walking off with a match ball the chances he put wide at corners or missed. Was very poor for the 2nd goal.

Anderton - 5 awful not at his levels, looked exhausted would expect him to drop off after so many games in quick succession given he’d previously played 2 in 6 months.

Watt -7 best player on the pitch. Them corners first half to Hayden x3 and Webster should have resulted in a goal. Poor for the 2nd goal however. This lad would get numerous assists from deep with a competent CF and winger.

M Jones - 5 rightfully hooked was abysmal, people seem to show a lot of sentiment to him but he’s past it.

Melish - 6 something their, needs more coaching and could be a very good box fo box midfielder - saved us at the end from a Colin [censored] up.

Thomas -4 off the pace, first goal was as much his fault at Colin. Pretty shocking management to bring a player out for the 2nd half whose limping and telling players as he leaves the pitch he comes back out he’s injured.

Alessandra - 3 for effort but offers nothing, not been involved in goals for us, no assists or goals.

Patrick -4 gets a mark for the goal, but he was absolutely abysmal, so wasteful with the ball.

Subs:
Mckirdy -5 huffed and puffed but no real quality.

Fella -4 off the pace

Bridge- 5 nice bit of skill to go past his man and win a free kick but that’s it.

People are joking right, by claiming Stockton played like Didier Drogba.
I know he scored, and he can cup his ears to the crowd as much as he likes, but otherwise he was bloody awful.
Webster getting a lot of criticism again, but I thought he defended solidly and played a great 40yard crossfield pass to set up Patricks' goal.

I’m not saying Webster had a great game, nobody did really, but the disparity between his and Hayden’s marks is laughable. Hayden made more mistakes than Webster and was at fault for the opening goal.

The foul by Webster in stoppage time, which some have mentioned should have been a sending off, only came about because of a mistake by Hayden. Some folk only see what they want to see!

I mostly agree Goldschmidt, but Webster did get far too tight to Stockton too many times and made it easy for him to roll him. Luckily nothing came of any time Stockton did beat him though.

Stockton was excellent in that first 40 mins, he held the ball up well, his passing found his man, he was aggressive, looked a threat and took his goal well. All the things he didn't do here, and if he had, one thing for sure he would have had a much happier time here.
After saying all that I thought he slumped back into the old Stockton second half.

Watched the highlights and Webster is watching the ball being whipped in and NOT marking anyone. The other centre half poor sod didn’t know which Morcambe player to get close to. Everyone can be low quality through a season but basic stuff. Marking a striker isn’t a science

The reason webster kept getting turned by stockton tells us it was webster's job to pick him up. Stockton has no pace, no physical presence, no acceleration, no aerial presence and he beat webster time and time again. The one time webster just left him he scored. Nadesan did exactly the same last week.

We can do so much better. We need to start planning for next season which means Hunt or mellish at centre back

Hayden and Mellish are the two hopefuls that we can build around for the future.

I don't mind McKirdy but he is hit and miss and is more than likely to be back off down south.

Behave yourself, Webster had just tracked back into position after shepherding Slew further up the pitch. Just prior to the pass to Stockton (pause it if it’s easier) Hayden is within touching distance of him (as is Watt) whilst Webster is about 10 yards away. You obviously don’t understand football if you think Stockton is Webster’s man in this instance, Hayden just lets him run across him, receive the pass and score. Like I say, some folk just see what they want to see!

Agree...Webster has made a career of ball watching since hes been here..dont know what the rest if his career has been like but apart from a few games since January , his bloopers are the reason we're where we are. Games have been flogged because of him.

More likely Webster was knackered from running back & hadn't a clue where Stockton was. He then stood and watched when the ball was played in. Begs the question why he was so far up the pitch to start with.

My understanding "of football" is the gaffa tells you who you are marking...in this instance Stockton was Webster's to mark...hense the twice he wrestled him to the ground near the end of the game. The mans an oversized pudding....brief respite from bloopers but they seem to have returned.

He isn't but if he constantly loses his man ir doesn't commit to defending properly it puts pressure on teammates who then have to bail him out and have twice as much to do resulting in chaos in the box

So centre-half’s follow their men all over the pitch do they? They’re not allowed to ‘swap’ men to avoid being pulled out of position? Players don’t cover for other players when they are out of position? You are showing your lack of understanding of football by saying a manager gives a player his man to mark and that’s it.

You mean like when Hayden didn’t defend properly in stoppage time and Webster had to bail him out by bringing Stockton down? You seem to be conveniently forgetting this.

Like I’ve said a hundred times, Webster deserved all the stick he was getting first half of the season, he was hopeless and had a howler in him nearly every game which was costing the team points. However since Boxing Day he’s been a steady fourth division centre-half and formed a pretty decent back two with Hayden. Both aren’t perfect, both get beat now again and both make mistakes, that’s probably why both are in the fourth division. Sadly, some had already made their minds up about Webster and there’s no going back, however well he plays. It would be interesting to see how the haters would have viewed his performances since Christmas had he been a new signing then, I dare say it would be quite different.

As for Hayden, the lad's 22, making his way in the game
Webster has 10 seasons on him at least

That's another one for Ibogaine to try and Photoshop :-)

It's quite interesting reading some of the previous comments, it's clear a few haven't played the game much.

The first Morecambe goal is a catalogue of errors. It's for once not about Webster.
First the lad running with the ball has a runner moving out left, Gethin Jones hands him on to Mike Jones then dithers instead of closing the lad with the ball down. There's no shout from M Jones to say 'push on, I've got your position'
G Jones is in two minds because he has no idea his position is covered.

The next error is Eliott Watt has taken on following the man who everyone is blaming Webster for ball watching, he stops tracking him leaving Webster exposed as the ball comes over. Webster is stood with his thumb up his nose admittedly but I'd say Watt could have cut that ball out.

Error number 3 is that despite looking directly at the whole thing unfolding Hayden at no time screams at either Watt or Webster to pick that man up...even when he's left with two to mark.
Why is there no shout from Collin either? He doesn't scream at anyone to help Hayden out.

Seems like a recurring theme with us and conceding, little in the way of communication!

‘Push on, I’ve got your position’
I can’t say I’ve ever heard that footballing term, are you sure you’ve played before?

You’ve never heard someone shout to say they’re covering someone else’s position???
I’d ask the same question....

NW Counties btw...in case you want to know.

I’ve got to ask, are you on the wind up?
Never heard anyone shout push on? Seriously?




Time to put the pedant hat on....

While you’ve got your hat on have a look at what you first said.

Is it not the right winger who should be pressuring the left fullback when has the ball? Pretty sure it’s his job. Slew who made the diagonal run is the left winger who is gethins man so gethin follows. Mike Jones should’ve stayed in the middle blocking off the service to the strikers. So either Thomas wins the ball off Cranston or makes him rush the pass or he passes to slew who gethin has marked and should tackle him or Cranston plays the ball but it it is cut out by Mike Jones because he cuts off the supply simple as that. I played right back back in the day and would have marked slew myself and told jones to stay in the middle.

Looking at it again Thomas is lightly jogging across not putting much effort in at all and it came from a throw in on the other side of the pitch so why was he that far over in the first place? Gethin should’ve closed him down though tbf because even if mike jones wasn’t there then there’s still Webster covering.

Yes, agreed.
Nothing wrong with swapping positions, but he has to let him know he’s there.

G Jones should be the one following the lad running into our RB position, but he’s not, he’s caught in two minds which is where a shout from M Jones running behind him would let him know he can pressure the lad on the ball and ignore the guy he’s thinking is unmarked running into where he should be.
He clearly doesn’t know M Jones is behind him, the original point I made (nit picking rubbish aside about specific words) if he knew M Jones is behind taking that lad off him he presses the lad and cuts the angle for that forward pass off, he probably squares it to the big lad in the centre rather than playing the ball he did.
Whole thing is shut down before it really starts.

the first goal came because Alessandra didn't win a simple ball played up to him
