I THINK Andy Booth is in as good a spell of form for us as he has been in his long association with Huddersfield Town.
Five goals in seven matches and an immense defensive performance in the second half at Yeovil.
He barely let the League's most dangerous defender in terms of goalscoring, Terry Skiverton, get a header.
In my opinion, Pawel Abbott needs a rocket as he seems to have gone into one of his disinterested spells.
I don't think he's been handled well, but I do wonder if Pav was performing well when he did because he thought he'd have a chance of playing for Poland v England and that he'll have another immense spell prior to the World Cup squads being chosen.
Unfortunately, I fear for Boothy getting injured and, therefore, we need cover in the January window.
Fletch is fine
I DON'T understand why some Town fans think Gary Taylor-Fletcher isn't looking a particularly good buy.
In my opinion, he has been a very good free transfer (not a buy) so far.
Seven goals at the minute and a player who can play as the first or second striker and, therefore, is able to replace either Andy Booth or Pawel Abbott if needed.
It is no coincidence that with Town being able to rest Boothy now and again he is having his best season for a long time.
Taylor-Fletcher is only 24 and he has just stepped up a division. Do people expect him to be a Wayne Rooney?
Simply the best
I WAS at Yeovil on Saturday and it was a fantastic result for Town.
Yeovil are the in-form side at the moment, as they showed in the second half.
Mark Hudson definitely had his best game in a Town shirt and Gary Taylor-Fletcher did well to say that he was playing in what is not his best position.
I've heard a lot of comments about Pawel Abbott's performance but, for me, he didn't really look on his game.
Peter Jackson is getting stick for dropping him, but if you don't play well then it's not a God-given right to get picked. A few games on the bench will be good for Pav.
Having said that, I think we deserved the points on Saturday and some of the home fans I spoke to said we are the best side they've seen down there this season.
That is a good feeling, to know other fans think that we're the best, especially when we know there is still a hell of a lot more to come from the Super Blues!
Bring in a loan
GREAT result on Saturday at Yeovil from a `gritty' performance.
Yeovil played into our hands in the second half by hitting a lot of high balls into the penalty area where Nathan Clarke and David Mirfin were able to deal with them.
The worrying aspect was that Pawel Abbott appeared not to perform again, being replaced by Tony Carss to close up the game.
We seem to have a lack of attacking options if Pav does not play well.
We have John McAliskey injured and Junior Mendes out on loan. Is this not the time to get in an attacker on loan?
Maybe a young striker from the Premiership?
I'D BE interested to know what the Town fans who went to Yeovil thought of the referee.
I thought he had a good first half, turning down two Yeovil penalty appeals (when they were trying it on!) and letting the game flow.
Then in the second half he went card crazy!
Town committed only nine fouls all game (Yeovil eight), but from those nine fouls we got five yellow cards (including two for Mark Hudson).
The referee seemed to completely lose it.
I don't even think Nathan Clarke took too long to take a free kick and yet was deemed to be timewasting, and I felt sorry for Hudson, who carried the ball 40 yards out of defence and, although he tripped the Yeovil player, there was no malice or nastiness in the challenge.
I DISAGREE with those who thought it was a poor performance in the second half at Yeovil.
Yes, we were on the backfoot for most of it, but apart from two headers Yeovil should have put away they didn't really threaten to score.
I thought our back four played as well as they have all season, Jon Worthington and Mark Hudson broke well from defence to attack and Andy Booth was immense at both ends of the field.
Let's not forget that up until Saturday Yeovil had lost only once at home and that we have no divine right to walk over our opponents.
These are the sort of results that will win us promotion if we keep on showing the right attitude.
Boothy is tops
IT would be wrong to single out individual performances for Town at Yeovil because we did well as a team.
Nathan Clarke had a great second half, winning all the aerial balls, but we defended well full stop.
If I had to pick out one player for praise it would be Andy Booth.
Not only did he chase lost causes up front, but his magnificent defending saved us, especially in the first half.
Andy Holdsworth gets better each week, Mark Hudson was getting forward like he did in the Chesterfield game, causing problems, and Gary Taylor-Fletcher did okay before tiring towards the end, when maybe Michael Collins could have gone on.
Although Yeovil put us under pressure, especially in the first 15 minutes of the second half, they only twice missed what were easy chances, one header straight at Paul Rachubka and the other wide.
I FEEL really disappointed with the result on Saturday - I felt we (Yeovil) were worthy of at least a point, being punished mainly for our own defensive mistakes.
Having said that, Town were by far the best side we have seen at Huish Park this season, and probably anywhere on our travels in League 1.
I (and several other Yeovil fans) all commented on Andy Booth's performance; when his legs give out, he will make an excellent centre half!!
I HOPE the Giants have sold lots of season tickets for next year.
It will be interesting to see when results are published, as I am sure we would all like to know.
It's getting closer now and I can't wait as we will have a new squad and be able to be a force to be reckoned with next year!
IT was pleasing to read Richard Thewlis's comment in last Friday's Examiner that `thousands' of Giants season tickets have so far been sold.
Hopefully that will be the foundation for dramatically increased Super League attendances next season.
