The Shrimps (19th) vs Sunderland (5th) Preview & SWOT Analysis – 30th April 2022

By Tom Collins | 29 de April, 2022 |

Match Preview Wow, here we are, the final League One game of an absolute rollercoaster season! Today promises to be an emotional day for both the Morecambe fans and the masses of travelling Sunderland supporters in a sold-out Mazuma Stadium.  The Black Cats need maximum points to guarantee a playoff spot, whilst The Shrimps need…

MK Dons (3rd) vs The Shrimps (19th) Preview & SWOT Analysis – 23rd April 2022

By Tom Collins | 23 de April, 2022 |

Match Overview With two games to go for both sides and a huge amount at stake, this really is the business end of the season. In what will hopefully for MK Dons be the last home game of the season (another would mean in the playoffs having failed to get a top 2 spot), they’ll…

Cambridge United (13th) vs The Shrimps (20th) Preview & SWOT Analysis – 9th April 2022

By Tom Collins | 9 de April, 2022 |

Match Overview This time last year Mark Bonner’s Cambridge United and Derek Adams’ Morecambe were two of the sides battling for promotion up to League One. After both clubs were successful, the number one goal for each was survival in the division.  Cambridge United currently sit 14 points above the drop zone with a maximum…

The Shrimps (21st) vs Oxford United (7th) Preview & SWOT Analysis – 5th April 2022

By Tom Collins | 5 de April, 2022 |

Match Overview Well, it finally came! After a winless streak of twelve games for The Shrimps, 5,238 saw Derek Adam’s men take Burton Albion apart at The Mazuma Stadium, winning 3-0.  I posed the question prior to that game in the final sentence of the match preview, “How much do they (Morecambe) want League One…

The Shrimps (22nd) vs Burton Albion (17th) Preview & SWOT Analysis – 2nd April 2022

By Tom Collins | 2 de April, 2022 |

Match Overview With seven games to play and sat in 22nd in League One, it feels like an obvious understatement that the Shrimps are desperate for a win to assist with their survival chances.  The quite incredible aspect is that despite being winless in twelve, we’re still only two points away from Fleetwood in the…

Wigan Athletic (2nd) vs The Shrimps (22nd) Preview & SWOT Analysis – 19th March 2022

By Tom Collins | 19 de March, 2022 |

Match Overview It’s not been a happy week in the life of a Shrimp. A 3-1 defeat at home to Cheltenham followed by a particularly lackluster 5-0 defeat to Shrewsbury Town has left even the most faithful Morecambe supporters considering life in League Two next season. These were games against sides we felt we should…

Shrewsbury Town (18th) vs The Shrimps (22nd) Preview & SWOT Analysis – 15th March 2022

By Tom Collins | 15 de March, 2022 |

Match Overview After some encouraging performances for The Shrimps of late, the 3-1 home defeat on Saturday to Cheltenham Town has somewhat deflated the recent optimism.  The goals conceded didn’t demonstrate the same defensive solidarity and commitment we’ve seen. Going forward, whilst we did have our chances, at times we lacked the creativity and invention…

The Shrimps (21st) vs Cheltenham Town (14th) Preview & SWOT Analysis – 12th March 2022

By Tom Collins | 12 de March, 2022 |

Match Overview I seem to be suffering from a malaise at the moment. It’s a mixture of overwhelming pride and deep, deep frustration! The Morecambe Malaise, perhaps. The pride is easy to pinpoint – our performances against top League One sides – Ipswich, Plymouth and Bolton – have been competitive and spirited. We have only…

Bolton Wanderers (11th) vs The Shrimps (21st) Preview & SWOT Analysis – 8th March 2022

By Tom Collins | 8 de March, 2022 |

Match Overview The Shrimps travel to The University of Bolton Stadium with no wins in eight and averaging 0.5 points during this period since the 4-3 home win to Wycombe on the 22nd of January. Interestingly, we have consistently drawn then lost in sequence. If that pattern was to continue – following Saturday’s loss down…

Plymouth Argyle (8th) vs The Shrimps (21st) Preview & SWOT Analysis – 5th March 2022

By Tom Collins | 4 de March, 2022 |

Match Overview Under the last four games of Stephen Robinson’s reign – before heading off North to take the Saint Mirren job – I felt the two points from twelve hadn’t represented the performance level. Our expected goal for over the duration of those four games was 1.95 and against was 0.94 according to Wyscout.…
