Maverick.  In the same mould as the likes of Tony Curie, Rodney Marsh.    He is the sort of player Dilly would play every week in every position.

I would loved to have watched a team that featured all three of them plus Gazza. Entertainers one and all.

Stan was a hugely talented footballer and a great character.

RIP

Where funding is concerned, for many football supporters at all levels the end justifies the means?

Which is why football needs an independent regulator, there are many walks of life where protections are deemed necessary to avoid 'the market' having a free reign (often at the detriment of individuals) and to me football fits this to a tee.  The landscape needs to be changed  to reduce the incentive to gamble to progress which just creates round after round of unaffordable wage inflation as others have to keep up to compete.

And the moral ground, where the money is sourced!

Man City, Chelsea, Newcastle. The list goes on!

Thank goofnes we have an owner who would appear to be a member of the Magic Circle.

A worrying trend that is gaining momentum. As an aside, i wonder whether we will ever get to know more about the mysterious Joe and just what he found so attractive about KLTFC as an investment vehicle? A little transparency would be most welcome.

Secured all three points for Lincoln v Exeter, with a clinical striker's finish. His first goal for the Imps.

Linnet 465- It’s the type of player I mean, of course, not the actualise!   It I take your point, and agree the manager can only pick his best players.  He didn’t, however, and Barrett is the prime example.  Mall is right that a team have to stop the others scoring, but these days that is done with numbers, not mere defenders.  Most teams get 10 men, or at least 9, behind the ball.  If you want to see how “good” football works, Leverkusen in Germany look to Dilly like the best team since Barcelonas GOAT teams for about 10 years. Sure beats”winning fouls”, or “doing little fouls all over the pitch”  as a way of playing most likely to win…

Even the greatest creative teams need a balance. Carlos Puyol at Barcelona being an example. Technically gifted but also quite pysical as and when required.

Will the Columbian players SC is eyeing up come in as first team or Academy players ?  Be interesting to see more overseas input

An interesting country from which to recruit. I doubt though whether footballers will become their primary export commodity?

If i were a young local player of ability looking to develop my skills and as a natural stepping stone, to play for my local club, would i consider joining KLTFC under the current set up? No way!!

Not all local young players of ability will qualify for or be attracted by the academy system. I believe there to be a seam of talent with potential to develop playing in local 'men's football', which has some obvious advantages over academies, where they are playing against teams from the same age groups. Joe Taylor is constantly mentioned as a beacon that illustrates the academies success, yet in certain respects he has achieved that in spite of the efforts of his local club? In similar vein we did quite a good job in knocking Fletcher Toll's confidence but credit to him, he is now scoring for fun at Downham and i believe he will eventually play at a higher level. An example of one that we could have nurtured and developed?

Don’t mention those names to SC.  He will be looking to give them a pre season trial in a July
:laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Maybe the mysterious Joe would have something to say about that, or anything for that matter!
