General Discussion / Re: Retained and Departed Players

No offence to MG or RJ, but I think we should not try to replace them with like for like.  Their leaving gives us an opportunity fora quicker, more fluent team, to cope better with the quick and slippery players that this league has in abundance.  It was them who caused our numerous defeats, in general.  We all favour different styles, but all I hope to see this season is opponents trying to keep us at bay, rather than the other way round !

Disappointed Chris Smith has gone.  But changing times.  I thought he was a good player, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.

Yes, Good luck to MG at PNS, and thanks for the good times.  Here is a chance now for our team to join the modern game, a game that the most successful teams often have no Centre Forward, particularly not a Big One, and especially like the old days, a Big One with No Teeth !  Fluidity is now the benchmark, as we saw too often from opponents in the season just finished.  The former Striker method was OK in FA Cup ties on horrendously muddy pitches.  The approaching In/Out flux of players should be very interesting.

Just taken my first look a Sundire, on YouTube.  Yes, he has football in him, and wins the ball well when he doesnít have it.  Looks similar in style to Gyasi.  Iím afraid not many of last years hotch-potch squad ( Covidís fault), looked capable of truly competing in this league, but, with additions of the standard needed, could do a useful ďcompetitiveĒ job.  King was the player who, for me, was obviously capable of being successful at this level, so my fingers are crossed he can reach his best level of fitness.  I also think Southwell would do well in a passing team, one that played to his feet, or through balls, rather than balls pumped high and wide.  I hope we have a team who can play an attacking game, with fluid movement.  Interesting times ahead....

Not simply being controversial, but Jarvis wasnít my thing, at least nowadays.  Opponents had too many nipsters that leave ďsittingĒ players standing.  Hunting down someone to tackle canít be much help when the opponent on the ball avoids him or passes the ball.  And the Gash-game was more suited to the W-formation !  I appreciated the work both did, however, but we need more speed off the Mark over short distances, IMHO.  Canít comment yet on the new lad, and will check on YouTube, but Iím not hugely impressed with his CV ....  Any news of King ?

I believe Southwell would thrive if he were in a team that keep the ball and move forward together.  I felt sorry for him when the ball was hoofed up high and over the heads of everyone.  DS needs through balls, not pumped balls.

At every ďbigĒ fixture over the years, there has always been the danger, and concern for sensible supporters, that a minority are likely to cause trouble in one way or another, therefore putting the club back another couple of rungs down the ladder we are trying to climb to reach the essential level of professionalism required.  In the league we are now in, and higher if we continue the improvement seen in the Stephen Cleeve years, every game is a ďbigĒ fixture, and will become even bigger as our competitiveness improves.  We have to ensure that idiotic behaviour and people are not tolerated, as failure to get to grips with it will certainly spoil the entertainment on offer, and the progress we are making.

Yes...  Congrats to Sutton United.  And also congrats to Hornchurch foe winning the FA Trophy !  They were better than us in that tie.

Very good news.  Whatís the old phrase ?..... All donations gratefully received....  Thank you very much Mr or Mrs Donator, thatís a very kind deed.  On the use of it, taking account of the benefactorís wishes, we should name the Stand.  I suggest it should be the Dilly Dilly Stand, but if that suggestion is not adopted, then I thoroughly agree that the Mick Wright Stand would be the best option.  If we can now acquire a genuinely competitive team for next season, we could be in for the best season in the clubís history... Letís hope so....    Any news on Cameron King - a fit one would be Dillyís first signing....

Another ground could be good.  I donít go with the idea that we need an over5,000 crowd to justify improved and/or covered terraces.  Their provision might well attract players, too.  How do clubs like Eastleigh pay for their superb modern terrace additions . We have more potential to pull in 5,ooo crowds than most in this league, but the ground needs to be part of the snowball....

On Mallardís Cup Final point, I shared his enjoyment, apart from the Neanderthals who booed the taking of the knee, and the commentator trying to talk louder to hide it.

I respect your opinion, KES, but I think Fox was good defensively !  I only recall one wide player getting the better of him all season in the NL, and that was the little Chester winger who managed to give him a torrid time.  Fox was also very good going forward, IMHO.  I hope youíre right that we can do better than Marriott, but think that would take some doing.  Letís just hope IC has the contacts, and the money, to make us competitive next season.  If he can, it will really give us something to look forward to.

Good to see good sense about Covid on here, itís not totally common, you know !  As for next season.  The Dillification is as follows....  Get back Street, or get a ď box- dominatorĒ GK, get back Norman, Nathan Fox, FBT, and Marriott.  Keep the ante-Covid regulars, and (sacrilege coming up), advise Sonny Carey that although we understand his temptation, he may have a frustrating season at a league club, particularly the two clubs mentioned in the Championship, and is presently more suited to play in a new and strengthened KL team.  If he keeps his form, league clubs will come back. I think heís a year too early to make that leap.  We do badly need another King, if the one we have canít make it back to full fitness.  Over and out - and for what itís worth !!  Perhaps next season (nearly forgot), Gash should be more of a cover for the central defenders.

Iím with KES on this. But I think there is rom for optimism, and thatís coming from a glass half empty man, or what used to be called a realist.  My optimism for next season, as Iíve bored people with before, comes from the Slough and York games.  If we are competitive next season, and can really mix it with all the opponents, I believe we can attract regular number like those seen at the two games I mentioned.  We have to sell the potential, somehow, OUTSIDE the ground.  We may not have the best ground at this level, but we are capable of being amongst the biggest attendances.
