RUFC - Cup of Woe or Wonder?

Well! Here we are another week past and are we any wiser as to the true standing of this football team?

I know Herringthorpe thought that this was the wrong time for the cup tie whilst I thought we could go there, win, and build up a winning mentality again. From the sound of what actually happened for the most part they were our equal or we were second best. The official site tells us that Barrow had 49% possession and more shots on target than us.

A cup tie against non league opposition is never an easy game. What I`d like to have heard is that we dominated, kept a clean sheet and won with comfort. I`m not for a second thinking we could put on a Barcelona-esque performance but, a bit of comfort. A win is a win. You can win scruffy and it`s still a victory, however, a measure of progress is to win with comfort.

I think Barrow were better than us for the first part of the game - we came out looking confused - why, I have no idea. But, I think if we'd gone in all-square at half-time, it would have been a different game. In the end, I think, we finally wore the non-league side down, so really it was a good win, just the performance that could have been better
