General Discussion / Re: THATS POOR
« on: January 24, 2021, 12:27:23 AM »
A problem I thought we had started to overcome.  Not often a team can defend by defending !  OK, it wasnít just us deciding to shut up shop, they were slick and quick, so managed to pin us back.  But we lost our most effective attacking players on the day (Kiwomya and King), partly through bad luck, and partly by being too careful, too defensive in our 2nd half selection.  We CAN get well up this league if we keep them back more....Ye Godz, ...Good night - look at that flaming time !!

A good chance of points,IF......IF we donít revert to a team of stoppers and tacklers.  Balanced attacking team needed to take the game to them, and use that as our main form of defence, and of course, attack.  Canít pick a team yet, as donít know the several new players well enough.  I hope Kiwomya is picked, and
would like to see Gyasi at some point, as he looks a proper player, slippery and nippy on YouTube.  Onwards and upwards, hopefully.

Apols.  Youíre right.  I did try to vote twice, but only because I pressed the wrong button on the first one  !

Didnít see it, because couldnít get on the stream for some reason - first time this season.  Great result.  Canít comment on the performance, but in those conditions itís always a lottery.  Team shaping up nicely, with selections getting bolder. We can keep going up this league as we now have some slippery nipster tricksters, a lunk, and a couple of hooligans....KES and Mallard know it makes sense. !!  WLM likesĒ uglyĒ....  well, weíve all been there !.....

Marriott, and Southwell for that matter, are used to playing in sides that bring the ball with them, and create openings.  Many of the selections this season have been designed to keep the opponents out, which means balls boomed from the back, over the heads of the 2 strikers, IMO.  Itís improving now.  Marriot5 has started to look slippery again, just been unlucky in front of goal.  And Southwell only looks like heís an all day runner, because heís had to chase wind-borne punts above his head.  Heís very good when given decent balls.  Things are improving.   I think we have the potential for moving on up......

No, KES, Dilly wasnít one - he loved playing AGAINST carthorses and hooligans !  The old Swaffham left -back still has to go to QEH for an annual check-up, to make sure his legs havenít started to tangle up again !....Hard to pick the team for Eastleigh, because I donít know too much about the new players, BUT....  the Dilly team for tonight is....  Mair (a worrying name for a GK !);  Jones, McFadden, Smith, Brown/Barrows;  Gyasi, Kelly, King, Kiwomya;  Southwell, Marriott.... Subs, Jarvis, Brown/Barrows, Gash, Richards, Carey, 3 to be used after 50 minutes, as anything after 60 is mostly too late.  Keep THEM under pressure, instead of US !....  Iím keeping this free of charge, for a while, as I realise 50 squid notes are in short supply at present.......

We had very few players likely to cause them any problems, at least until the subs, who we should have started with.  Hornchurch had all the players, nipsters, and creators.  Still think Sam K and King would shine in a positive line-up.

Bad news.  Have to say that any club signing new players is gambling, not planning.  I do think the season should be cancelled, then starting from scratch when it is genuinely safe to do so.  On signings, I believe we have too many players at the moment, including another left-back.  Iím still disappointed we let Nathan Fox go !  Very difficult decisions for all charged to make them, but, considering finance and safety together, I do think we should call a halt for a year.

Except, KES, I didnít say the team should have changed to suit him, or that there was a mismatch.  I just think he had so many defensive p,Ayers in his games that they couldnít move forward with him.  Anyway, Lípool vs Man U ....  Lípool on paper have too many slippery nipsters for MU, at least on paper.  And they have the great Thiago....

Dilligaf and KES are my sparring partners this Sunday morning, and very welcome they are too.  Dilligaf - Putting out a team of slippery nipsters is exactly what IC DIDNíT do yesterday.  I went through the team sheet before the game, and despaired that we had virtually no route to goal.  And, morning KES- I donít get these ideas (not just yours) that Power either had ďloads to learnĒ or that he didnít fit into the team pattern.  I thought the team didnít fit into HIS pattern, as he was obviously the one who could at any moment go on to bigger things.  Still, food for thought, and I do appreciate yours, and often agree with them, but often not !!!

Sensible posts on this thread.  I agree with KHís post, but also Jackdawís response to it, especially that the  ďthe countryĒ didnít vote for it.  But yes, it does look ridiculous when players and officials start by ď elbowingĒ, and celebrate or finish with hugs and kisses - some of them virtually making love !!  I certainly agree that all football should be halted, until the virus is either a minor or non-existent concern, or when it does start again properly, it will be played and supported by far too many very sad people who have suffered the bereavement of the closest people in their lives.

All the regulars on here are spot on about the feebleness of the lockdown.  Apart from those who have to, and especially those who are trying to keep people alive, we have to realise there are fools out there who are endangering the rest of us.  Iím so impressed with the discussion that Iím making the next three Dillyselections  free of charge.  Stay safe, everyone.....

Great pity, but inevitable.  It has been obvious he can go a lot higher.  I think he can do very well at League level, particularly as heíll be supplied with balls, rather than have to forage for them.  You can spot talent after 5 minutes.  Heíll be very difficult to replace, but the last 2 signings look very good, and similar on YouTube......
