Views from Merthyr Imp following Saturday’s 3-2 win away at Blackpool in League One: “I suppose on balance a draw might have been a fair result, and some might point to us only scoring from dead-ball situations, but quite apart from the fact, Johnson might have scored when he was brought down for the second penalty, we did have good scoring opportunities from him in the first half and Hopper in the second.
Apart from winning the penalties, when Johnson did get the ball in the box a couple of times he perhaps might have done better.
I agree with Steve Thompson about Bridcutt – giving the first goal away was just about the only thing he did wrong, and when we nearly presented Blackpool with another goal when it was 2-2 he was the one who rescued the situation.
I thought both substitutes did excellently, with Edun mostly nullifying the threat from Hamilton – it was only when he went through the middle against Jackson that he nearly scored.
Montsma gets the headlines again! I thought at the time Blackpool were giving him half an hour to score at the far post, but looking at it again, he created all the time for himself.” – What are your thoughts on this?

Croozey: “I must say we battled well there. We’ve got a very young side and they will be prone to mistakes, and we saw a few today. But Blackpool looked drained with 20 minutes to go and we had plenty left in the tank. Harry Anderson made a difference when he came on. Also, if Montsma carries on like this throughout the season he’s going to be worth £3-5 million if a championship team comes along. Then again, if we carry on like this, we will be in the Championship ourselves. no, I shouldn’t be saying that, too early.”
Rasenimp: “For a young side the character is unbelievable. Just a real shame we can’t be there to watch games like these but they’re doing us proud!
I’m hoping the fact Montsma seems a little bit raw etc will work in our favour – such an unusual and brilliant signing!”
Jivin Imp: “Just a note on today’s match, really enjoyable. The Dutchman has some sublime skills with head and feet. Edun was ice cold when he came on and shored up an area of concern. Anderson carried on his good start to the season and the young lad Johnson has some twinkle toes!!! Think we were a bit fortunate on the second penalty and I’m not getting carried away.”
