    They’ve just put the last ball up on Facebook....gotta give credit to Critchley, he knew 2 runs were needed and didn’t hesitate for a second getting up and down the wicket.

    Yeah two young lads as probably the main 2 seam bowlers, though Reece is bowling very well this season. Guess it helps with all the all rounders we have, that not too much pressure is dumped on them.

    Looks like a good effort from a pretty inexperienced bowling attack.

    Doesn’t matter what team we pick as we’re going to win...........according to some Bristol fans on their forum!
    They seem to have uncovered a scam where the league is paying refs to get us victories so they can make “Fat Frank” look good............I think that’s how it goes anyways.
    Looks like promotion through the play offs is now assured thanks to the EFL!

    I’ve never left before the final whistle of any game, but I don’t see the point in worrying about other people doing it. Maybe they’ve got valid reasons to rush off, maybe not. When something glorious like today happens, their the ones who miss out.

    It was a wicket that was very hard to score quickly on. Derbyshire pressed early and were 3 down before the opening 10 overs were completed, then they learned from that. Godleman was struggling for any timing, but kept the scoreboard ticking with singles and twos. Critchley played a typical hard-hitting knock to lift Derbyshire to what I thought was a decent total, but by no means a decisive one, assuming that Northants played sensibly.
    In short, they didn't. Almost a run a ball sounds great in the first 20 overs, but not when it leaves you 8 down. The four seamers all did pretty well to leave Northants in a deep hole, and 9 overs were shared by Matt Critchley and Mark Watt (the Scottish twirly who turned England over last year), making his debut. Both bowled tidily as Derbyshire took no liberties whatsoever. It could have been over sooner (I counted three chances which were put down with numbers 9, 10 and 11 at the wicket), but it was a case of making sure of the win, keeping control of the scoring rate etc. Besides, it was a gorgeous day, and I wouldn't have minded it going on a few more overs.
    Northants tail-enders batted in circumspect fashion and had little trouble staying in, especially after the shine and hardness went off the balls. If the likes of Wakely, Newton, Rossington et al had done the same (rotate the strike, build your innings on ones and twos, put pressure one the bowler and put the bad balls away), they would have made a far better fist of things, especially as the outfield speeded up considerably as it baked in the sun.
    A word about the new signing, Leus du Plooy (signed on a 2-year contract yesterday) - I'm betting this lad will have a sensational impact.

    The way I see it (just my thoughts), is that is we want to stop leaking goals from set pieces and be more of a threat in the opposition box from ours then a complete change of defensive mentality and team roles is the only way it will happen.
    We use our defenders, including central defenders, as a way to start potential attacks. We (well some), as fans, want ball playing defenders who can bring it out from the back, use the ball wisely, start potential attacks and be assured in possession. I find those type of defenders lead to a compromise in defensive stability. Not all of them will be stimac, most will be Keogh.
    Want to stop neadless goals from set pieces? Get a couple of 6ft 4 head it, boot it, block it merchants and that may well be reduced, however the whole mentality, shape and game structure of our team will be changed.
    At our level, budget and potential attraction to players means we have to acknowledge there will be a compromise somewhere.
    Dunk, flint et al will stop that, but long balls and needless lumps up the field in possession will then become the norm. Big Darren Moore was superb for the role he did in our promotion season, but Rio Ferdinand he wasn't.
    We have to embrace the fact and I think our players and coaching staff have, that if we are going to try and play a passing, progressive style, then unless you are buying van djyk, this will come with limitations.
    Our players can't do it all, otherwise they wouldnt be playing for us. Sorry. But I feel that's the way it is.
