General Discussion / SOCIAL DISTANCE
« on: March 12, 2020, 02:47:33 PM »
A word to all players, all levels.  In the current environment, not shaking hands before a match is a good idea, and being well observed all over the country.  BUT - it’s a pointless exercise if all sorts of kissing and cuddling occurs on a goal being scored or at the end of a match with team-mates and opponents alike.  That, it appears to THE FONT, is also taking place all over the country, every game I’ve seen.....Don’t get that, at all....

General Discussion / League Fixtures
« on: February 28, 2020, 05:42:01 PM »
Chester, Boston, and Brackley all look to have tricky fixtures this weekend, and for a long-shot I think Curzon A. might frighten York.  They looked a good side at the Walks, despite the score, and although in a lowly position have had some surprising results.  I thought they looked good here earlier in the season....

General Discussion / F A Trophy
« on: February 09, 2020, 03:52:39 PM »
Congratulations to Royston FC for their victory in the FA Trophy yesterday, taking out Ebbsfleet United, our opponents in the previous round.  Looking at  cup results in general, and taking nothing from Royston, there is an obvious trend that the higher up you go in Cup competitions, especially the FA Cup, the lower the interest in the competition.  What used to be known as “shocks”,( and indeed they were), are no longer real surprises, let alone shocks, with players routinely rested for the important league fixtures coming up.  Pity, but now a fact....

Injury update, anyone ?

General Discussion / York on Saturday.
« on: January 16, 2020, 09:27:02 PM »
I appreciate what Steve the groundsman said on an earlier post, ( that the pitch should be fine for the top of the table clash), but even with my glass half full for the first time in 2020, I can’t remotely imagine how the match can go ahead as I look at photos on Facebook of the ponds all over The Walks itself, and hear the ruddy rain trying to knock a hole in my conservatory roof for what seems the 50th day on the trot.  Fingers crossed, of course, but we must have a helluva drainage system in the stadium !!

General Discussion / Formations part 2
« on: January 12, 2020, 04:24:52 PM »
On football in general, and KL in our case, it was great to hear Pep Guardiola, in answer to another of these complicated questions about “formations”... “What is the thinking behind today’s formation (sic) ?”.  Following a mystified shrug of his shoulders he said, “Nothing - sometimes we have 3 , sometimes 5,  and sometimes 7.  We just try to pass the ball and score goals !  The players move !”  I’ve always thought that only in Subbuteo do these formations matter, because on the grass pitch the players MOVE !  Hope KLTFC keep passing the ball and scoring goals !  Don’t think you’ll see Pep talking balderddash with Carragher and Neville any time soon.  Talking point for a drab Sunday afternoon !!

General Discussion / Membership on the KLTFC site
« on: January 06, 2020, 06:25:15 PM »
Just had a look at the Membership benefits on the Club site - Could the inclusion of “non-club” benefits be advantageous ?  Perhaps tickets to a game at a higher level ?  Or vouchers for a money-off or half price to a local hostelry for a meal ?  Cinema tickets ?  Concert tickets ?  Just a thought.  Can’t help thinking out of the box cos I don’t have a box !.......

General Discussion / Formations.

Another excellent performance.  Our front eleven are currently proving to be too good for everyone.  BUT - Any news on Adam Marriott ?  A very important question, I’m sure we would all agree.....

General Discussion / HAPPY NEW YEAR
« on: December 31, 2019, 07:19:32 PM »
Happy New Year to all those interested in KLTFC, including those still only thinking about coming to see this excellent team in action....  Special thanks to Steven Cleeve, IC and Mr Bastock, (it hasn’t gone un-noticed how you “ping” a new ball into play when one is heading down Tennyson Avenue after a Hawk-launch !  Hard and low please Hawk, in 2020 !  Not forgetting our fine team , and particularly it’s terrific on the floor pass and move football !  As well as NY greetings, a special thank you to Mr Chairman for his superb sponsorship of our club, ambition for its progress, and....  his humorous programme notes.  Steven - Don’t let the buggers get you down.....  Off now for a third Crafty Hen - the last one before the toast !!!

General Discussion / Leek Town
« on: September 25, 2019, 10:23:18 AM »
Can’t have any over-confidence vs Leek Town.  They are joint top of their league and haven’t lost a home game all season.  ALSO - Sutton Coldfield, who are 2nd from bottom of the same league, last night knocked Kettering Town out of the FA Cup, so playing at Leek’s home ground may be problematic.  Our regular performance will be needed, and ought to be enough......

General Discussion / Darlington
« on: August 26, 2019, 07:55:30 PM »
Another excellent result at Farsley.  Now for Darlington on Saturday.  Please have a word with all pals, relations, boyfriends, girlfriends, .etc., to come to the game..  we must be sending shockwaves to the league with this amazing start, but now is surely the time to shock many of our opponent clubs with a demo of the sort of crowd we can pull.  After all - all these games should now be as big a pull as the Slough game was.....

General Discussion / THINKING BIGGER
« on: July 12, 2019, 04:54:12 PM »
Just been on the non-league site and am slightly concerned thT virtually all of our approaching opponents are.testing their calibre against League clubs.  I hope that doesn’t show they are more ambitious than us - in their recruitment, perhaps....  And how is our turnstile improvement going - haven’t seen a mention ....

General Discussion / State of play
« on: January 26, 2019, 05:43:40 PM »
Admittedly speaking from my armchair, so not having watched the team lately, I still think we are relying too much on formations, cliches, and workrate.  When you see a sub being  prepared, at any level of the game, the coach goes through his portfolio of diagrams, while the player checks on his socks and glances in all directions, with only the occasional glance at the diagrams he is being shown.  I’ll lay odds you won’t get Barcelona or Man. City talking 442, 4141, 451 etc, because good teams rely on all the players being mobile and slippery when they have the ball and getting virtually all of them back and behind the ball when they haven’t.  That is the sum total of the tactics required.  We have to get some players who are skilful and quick over short distances, or we won’t make the play-offs, which would obviously be a disappointment....
