Gary Neville's August Review
The manager's review of Scarborough's first month in football
Tottenham Hotspur (H), Premier League, FT:0-0
Michael Dawson (Tottenham)
This was a good start to life in the Premier League. We controlled the game and were unlucky to not score. We had 16 shots compared to Tottenham's 8. We had more possession as well, which shows our domination.
Fulham (A), Premier League, FT:2-2
Antoine Griezmann (Scarborough)
Darren Bent (20, Fulham)
Jordan Rhodes (56, Scarborough)
Antoine Griezmann (89, Scarborough)
Hugo Rodallega (90+1 (PEN), Fulham)
This game was disappointing in many ways. We had a poor pass completion rate, and by 24 minutes in, we had had no shots at all. I though we had won it late on when Griezmann put in a fantastic freekick from long range, but we conceded a late penalty, which they scored from.
Charlton Athletic (A), Capital One Cup, FT:3-1
Lawrie Wilson (Charlton)
Marvin Sordell (11, Charlton)
Simon Chruch (16, Charlton)
Jesé (29, Scarborough)
Lawrie Wilson (52, Charlton)
This is the worst performance so far. We should have won this confortably, but we didn't turn up, and now we are out. We had more shots and possession, but we couldn't make them count. The only good thing to come from this game is that on his debut, Jesé scored his first goal for the club.
Liverpool (H), Premier League, FT:1-1
Steven Gerrard (Liverpool)
Jesé (65, Scarborough)
Steven Gerrard (90+3 (PEN), Liverpool)
Our best game of the season. We didn't dominate, but we made the chances we had count, which we haven't done so far. Jesé scored another goal, until another late late penalty let Liverpool have the points.
We sit 12th in the league, with three points. Should have had all the points against Fulham and Liverpool.
