General Discussion / Re: Club vacancy.

Anyone out there who could build us a terrace in the Open areas, and increase those behind the goals.  No point having big ambitions and trying to attract a Commercial person while the combo of our facilities and ambitions look silly on tv!

Robbie Savage will have ‘em all scratching their heads about False Nine four, A Number 8, a number 10, “A Six with a Diamond” , etc!!!….   Msg to SC, Don’t ever consider RS for Manager!!!  Watch Leverkusen and see what wins every game!

Can’t imagine a player wanting to move from Scunthorpe to our club.  Ground, support , and prospects in the league would rule the idea out, imho…

Completely agree with Rod about the great Barca teams, and I would add Spain to that as well.  Definitely true that Premiership clubs prefer big lunks to good players, and that many would have turned down Messi, Xavi, and Iniesta.  But although they were good at winning the ball back, the main attributes were their fantastic passing and trickery that mesmerised and murdered all opponents!  But KL level is no different, good players win the most games.. Simples!

Ugly football, if that’s what it takes.  Problem is, that isn’t what it takes!  Ugly football is a guarantee of a scrap to avoid relegation!  Those who want football that is often called “pretty” or “flowing” don’t just want it because it’s good to watch, they want it because in 9 games out of 10 it is the way to win.  Odd games can be won by ugly football, but in general it is the way to lose…. Imho!!!

I agree with Mallard that that sort of football still exists, but it guarantees a scrap to avoid relegation!  It’s not a choice.  Playing well generally wins, playing badly generally loses.  It doesn’t matter what level we are talking about.  The amazing Leverkusen are a great demo of going from 3rd bottom one year, to a 16 point lead over Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga a year and a half later because nobody can get the ball off the buggers!!!….

I, Guardiola, and Alonso don’t understand the idea that winning whether “pretty” or “good” is possible, and have the advantage of knowing that playing well gives a team much more likelihood of winning than playing badly, even with the sleeves rolled up.  That is the main reason their teams win nearly all the time. Any other manager would greatly increase their chance of success by realising that.  It’s the same with any game with a ball!  I’m hoping that’s the priority next season!!!….

I know that players have to be fit, but we’ll have a better chance when a manager starts putting ability before fitness.

Great result, but very poor attendance. We do look safe at last, although not a certainty…. bur certainly a cause for real optimism.  I suppose the gate was reduced by it being Champions League night.  Now we’re all asking the same question - Can KLTFC challenge at the top end of the league next season?  As with all clubs in this era, it largely depends on who has the best benefactor.  It’s so important that it’s almost that supporters aren’t cheering a team’s success, but more the benefactors donations, without realising it! That’s a reality that makes it much more difficult these days for a small club to win anything, or even challenge in the way that they did in previous eras…..  COYL!…..

Managers wanting a reaction is part of many football myths   It suggests the players weren’t trying enough last week, but they will have to this week!  Our team cannot expect to beat poor sides regularly because we lack footballing quality.  The team always try hard and “put in a shift”, but they’re only equipped to pull the game into a skirmish, and a “battle”.  Those kind of teams are always going to be in a relegation dogfight.  The commentary, even on Radio Nfk, suggested Banbury, a team which had lost the last 11 games, had the better players.  It’s worrying, but the predictable “battle” will rage to the end!  COYL….

Agree with M A H - Games are seldom won by defending.  First half our tenacity and work rate stopped their football, but in the second half their football was too much for our work rate and physicality. I don’t think our manager’s h-t team talk made us worse as much as their manger’s team talk made them better, and very good, to be fair,

Said “It worked”.  Meant to add” It always does”!  Football nearly always beats mere tenacity…..

Very disappointing.  Watched it on NLTV.  First half KLT were so tenacious.  On to everything in a flash, and won all the skirmishes. Their “skirmish” football was dominant enough to engineer chances, and they stuck them away with aplomb!  It looked as though S’carbto’ were in for a pasting, but then came half-time.  I could almost hear the team talk from the Seasider’s Bigwig… “Stand back a yard from the skirmishes- Get the ball on the ground and keep it there - Play in triangles, using, tricks, pass and go, and drop a shoulder when hemmed, and make chances galore”….  It worked., and disappointed us Linnets.  But our team have done very well, and we saw in the second half the standard of player needed to reach half way or go into the upper pantaloons of the league!…. Hopefully next season… Dilly is very appreciative of of the efforts of the Team managers, and particularly Steven Cleeve…

Good luck to all interested parties tonight - we all know how helpful  a win here would be!  Can anyone tell me what has happened to Ponticelli, Fatadjo, and Castro?……
