Well, that was probably the best game I've seen this year. Maybe this season!

Even when it was going wrong in the first half it was still miles better than what we have been seeing. Effort, endeavour and no little skill. Great effort by all the players. Just one question. why didn't the do this over the rest of this year?

To be fair we have had some great home performances like today, against Doncaster, Carlisle and Plymouth. Ok we didn't win any but we have shown alot of fight.

Enjoyed a Crawley game for the first time in 2017. That has left me feeling positive as at least 9 of the squad today will be with us next year. Another great goal keeping display. I do hope that the new manager works on fitness as over the season where we rarely have the ball we lag in games. But today we looked like creating chances and challenged a more physical team for the ball all over the park (except first 30mims).

Great strike from Roberts there is a player in there somewhere would be interesting to seem him fit, interested and with a run in the side.

Fully agree Jim, most exciting game this season. In the second half the players gave everything for our young manager.
I hought overall we were the better team and were unlucky not to win.

Cracking game we should have won. Like has been said you wonder what could have been. Well done Matt Harold. Suspect its the last we will see of him but has left a few good memories in his time at the club. Just unlucky .

I do hope Harold stays on in some capacity in the club. Gives absolutely everything in every role he has been given since day one he's come here. Comes across really well in interviews too.

The most exciting game of the season today.

It was very noticeable that we moved the ball FORWARD as opposed to sideways and backwards.

We also had shots at goal that resulted in the ball hitting the back of the net. With a little luck, we could have left the field with maximum points.

Wasn't there today but encouragingly high attendance from us and sounds like a good atmosphere too?

First half pathetic lacklustre worst 45 minutes all season. Up steps the king applies a wet sponge at halftime players wake and we see best 45 minutes of the season. It perhpas summarised our season inconsistent and the dummy incapable of getting the best out of our players. Long live the King. Undefeated under the king and an extremely popular man in the dugout. I came away entertained and really enjoyed the match. Long live the king.

Well, bloody hell. More enjoyment in 45 minutes than the rest of the season put together. Such commitment - work rate, chasing back, aggression.There was a Red Wave surging towards the South stand, and we we should have won (if we quietly ignore Mansfield's missed chances in the first half). A miserable first half and a rejuvinating second. And that's what we wanted wasn't it? We didn't win but we didn't mind because we threw the kitchen sink at the opposition.
Special mention for Dean Cox who seemed to think he had a number 9 on his back as he charged down the middle. And a nice touch was the players children as mascots. The players seemed to enjoy that as much as their kids.

MH brought himself on with about 1 minute of injury time left for the shortest of cameos, suggesting he knows it was probably his last appearance in a Reds shirt. If so it was a very positive end.


I read it the same way too. But thinking about it and the way he spoke post match and the statement from the owner about having someone on board who knows the club just had me thnking...


The last time we went down the "boot room" route it was with FV. That didn't turn out bad did it.

I'd personally favour Dannie Bulman as the new manager working alongside someone like Craig Brewster as coach...but replacing Matt for Dannie wouldn't be the worse move ever would it.

He knows the club, is popular with fans, whipped some passion up and probably realises at 32 and after three or four seasons of injury woes he's not got that much more football in him

Bulman has what managerial experience? Even more of a gamble than the dummy
