Think our season will start here and Mangan will be our key man.

Not on today's showing he won't be. Cook was miles better-our best player by some way.

It wasn't the best game, but it was s hot day, so the players were using the regular stoppages for drinks breaks. We were never in danger of conceding, yet we could have scored 5 on another day

+1. It was boiling hot ,yet the Solihull stewards would not let us sit in the same stand as last year despite the fact that it was just outside the away bar and there was loads of room in there. As I am fair skinned,I wasn't particularly impressed. Not bothered about the security checks coming in but steward number 7 was a bit zealous[in the stand area] even if he was only doing what he was told to do.

We allowed them to play their way rather than our way for the first 70 minutes. Norburn did what the midfield should be doing far more often for his goal.He burst forward into space giving Cook great support for once-great pass from Andy, fine finish from Olly.

Even though they didn't look like scoring,they were still in the game till the three subs came on.We were much the better team after that playing it on the ground more. Their keeper made an outstanding save from Norwood shortly before Cook scored and Jennings was very unlucky not to score near the end.

I thought mangan put on one hell of a shift today, chasing everything down. He was clearly knackered when he came off (a needed change). Norburn took his goal really well, ran the length of the pitch to support cook who did brilliantly.

The chances we could have scored:
1) Cook in the first half when Hughes ran though their defence.
2) Mangans bullet header
3) Norwoods 1 on1
4) Jennings shot from the corner
5) Buxtons 1 on 1

Then there wasabout 5 more half chances, that on another day.......

All in all, a good day out in the sun.

Any news on Norburn? Pulled up randomly and went straight off.

Norwood's wasn't a one on one -it was a jinking run where he beat a couple of their players-the keeper then made an outstanding save.

I think Norburn's got a slight calf injury-MM didn't seem too concerbned about it when he was asked about it in his interview. Reckoned that fatigue might be part of it which,considering how hot it was,is not unduly surprising.

It was Moor Green and Solihull Borough

Yep that's true.

Great result today and important to get a result you can kick on with. Cook underlining his importance with a third goal for the season and Norburn is showing he could be a key part of the season and a good backup player for goals. If he scores at this rate it'll be around 12-13 league goals a season, but it's still early doors so he shouldn't feel too much pressure right now to support the front line selections.

Hopefully Tranmere can win the next one and kick on as they're only 2 points off the playoffs, so this is the time for a possible revival of fortunes and if Lincoln did it, then Tranmere just as well.

After Saturday, found plenty of reasons not to go to Solihull on Monday. Even de-fleaing the cat seemed a more pleasurable use of my time. Delighted with the result yesterday and that we have gone back to 3-5-2. Think it would have produced a win on Saturday with Buxton Harris & Cooke.

Better ,but against a poor side .this season is going to be the toughest yet not just the usual suspects to contend with but Leyton Orient starting to find there way .and the teams we never thought about doing well and with 7 in the mix any team can come out the woodwork and pinch that second place .its going to need luck to get out this League anyone can beat anyone more so this season. we are not good enough to win it so it's going to be a tough season

Not good enough to win it ! Presumably this is based on our shaky start when we should have collected more points. But we are still in August.
Nothing is won or lost in August! Cheer up.

You "may" be proved right, but even if you are come May, I doubt anyone on here will crack out the bunting for you and play a fanfare (Sm7)

Yes they were courteous but had obviously been told to rigidly enforce different guidelines from last year. The stand that we sat in last season having a good laugh/rapport with Solihull fans was deemed to be not available for us to sit in[out of the baking sun] despite the fact it was half empty and right in front of the away fans bar. I originally sat in there about 2-15 and a couple of minutes later was turfed out by steward number 7 and his mate. About 20 minutes later ,I went to go into into the bar area to see if some friends were there and to spend a penny and,on my way in,I was asked by the same steward who had turfed me out to produce my ticket again!! I know he was probably only doing what he was told to do but there was no need to be so zealous when he obviously recognised me. At half time I mentioned that due to these new rules,we were all frying in the sun in an open stand.He just looked at me as if I had a third eye and basically ignored me.

Solihull was my favourite awayday last season because we were treated so well. The off the pitch experience yesterday left something to be desired. It was just unnecessary.
