Very good idea, IMO...  Just watched my first podcast before the Wealdstone game.  Have to say I was impressed with SCís delivery, and outlook.  And congrats  on the. Ron Exchange idea - very innovative, and deserves to succeed.  BUT - Social Distancing SO Important. - Iím sure we all agree on that !.....   COYL !.....  I think Alex Street should stay, and heíll get back in sometime.

Is Power fit ?  Is Loma available  ?.  Iíd pick Power if OK, but Iím assuming he isnít.  Not convinced about Loma yet.  I was a big advocate of Carey and Kelly being the first names on the sheet last season, and am almost back there again.  Dillyís team vs Wealdstone....  Street:  Barrows,Smith,Lupano,Brown:  Carey,Richards,Kelly,King, Marriott, Southwell.... Subs, Mair, Clunan, Jarvis, Mitchell, Power/Loma.  Nine man defence and seven man attack.  Season starts here....!!....  IMHO !

Agree with WLM - Smith had a good game.  We looked a better side than Weymouth.  Football throws up bad patches where a team can miss a penalty, then give one away.  Iím still sure we can hold our own in this league.  McAuley was  decent until he hit his own bad patch.  King looked good, but had no attacking midfielders with him, so that meant nothing for Southwell and Marriott to use consistently.  Itíll come though, as long as no one starts falling out !  Weymouth looked ordinary, and Maidenhead are certainly showing how well we did there !  Chins Up !!

So our team beat the team who beat Wrexham away.  That makes us capable of doing well in this league.  I maintain that we need one/possibly two slippery nipsters, but, until then weíll be OK if we play on the ground to create chances. 
Dillyís team for Weymouth....  Street;  Jones McAuley,Smith,Brown;  Barrows/Clunan;  Richards,Carey,King/Kelly,Power; Southwell/Marriott.   Subs: Mair, Barrows/Clunan, King/Kelly, Southwell/Marriott, Loza.  Choices depending on fitness.   Weymouth have Very well-appointed ground. .....And a real pity about the Notts County tie being behind closed doors, and the big crowds I believe we would be getting.In many games.

Mall - slippery and nippy are the same.  Take a look at the last 2 games, and youíll see slippery nipsters running us ragged !  Yes, Peds for Saturday,.  Anyone noticed Maidenhead beat Wrexham Way ?  That was a good win for us , and should give the squad confidence again....

Hi KES !  In both defeats we were pulled apart by their slippery players.  Weíll never stop that sort with ďstrengthĒ because our strongmen will be tackling thin air !  It often amuses me listening to commentators and their right-hand pros talking about ďstrengthĒ, ďholdingĒ players, etc., because when you see the replay there was no contact at all !  Itís a cliche/trend to me!  ďThat Number 10 positionĒ is up there as well !  If there WAS strength, itís virtually always a foul!  Ijust think we have to get some nippy players quick, or weíll struggle to win games at all.  Hoe Iím wrong !

For too long English pundits have gone on about size and strength.  ....  but itís nipsters that the better teams have.  They were too quick for us all over the pitch.  We need a couple of nipsters.  And. Carey has to start....  But I do agree we need a CH... Solihull and BW have shown itís so important to have slippery players who are quick over short distances.....We have some players who are quick over long distances, but the gaps arenít there to run into !.....

Iíve found the streaming to be good.  Havenít used a code though - just pay up in the 10 mins before kick-off, then youíre straight in....        .....   And after last week, I think we need a CH, plus (essential) two nippy eels like Archer.  They win the matches, IMO.  Hope tonight that the midfield feed Southwell and Marriott - Dayle to run on to, and/or Adam, to feet.  Sailing over their heads gives them no chance...  Is Simon Power back ?
Dillyís team vs Boreham Wood.....  Street; Jones,Barrows,McCauley/Smith, Brown; Richards; Carey,King, Kelly,Power; Southwell.  Subs Mair, McCauley/Smith, Clunan, Marriott, Barker/Hawkins...... (IMHO !!)

I agree weíre not quick enough in central defence.  I donít think physicality in that area is lacking, because that can result in penalties !  From the games Iíve seen, the top teams have some quick off the mark tricky players that are the difference.  Notts County have Roberts, Reeves, Wootton, and the winger who scored today, (donĎt have his name to hand).  Wootton is big, but has clever feet. Solihull have Archer, who ran us ragged the whole game.  Strong defenders canít stop that type.  Nine men back for a forest of legs, IMO !  We only had individual defenders to stop Archer and others.  He should have had 6 to beat, not 1 or 2.  Where was Jarvis playing ?  Opponents are mostly young, fit, and quick, and slippery.  We need the same, then put THEM on the defensive for periods. Our strikers are not being supplied with the ball !

At no time did Southwell get a through all or Marriott get one to feet.  They spent all game watching the ball fly high over their shoulders. So the midfield were to blame today.  Also our 2CHs were slow.  Same with Jarvis.  We must have been expecting a physical exam, but their strength was in a good passing game, plus some slippery skill men who ran us ragged.  Archer, in particular.  They are a good side in a smart stadium, to be fair., and played good football throughout. I thought Smith looked favourite for that ball against Archer, but he seemed to back off to get a ď positionĒ to defend a cross.  Anyway, weíll be back, but we must pick the players whoíll pin the opponents back....And where was Power ?  Rant over !!!  Apols for boring you on a Sat night.  Time for a beer !

Dillyís team vs Solihull....  Street/Mair;  Jones, McAuley, Smith, Brown;  Barrows;  Clunan, Richards, King, Power;  Southwell.  Subs, Kelly, Carey, Marriott, Street/Mair, Jarvis.  Hate not picking Kelly, Carey, Marriott, but canít change yet.  When we do, weíll lose nothing, and gain plenty ! No offence to Jarvis fans, but think Barrows perfect for adding to defence and augmenting attack.  What a bench though  - bring all 3 on at once when needed !

General Discussion / So far, so good.

Fine start, but I see ICís point about mistakes.  Seen highlights of most teams now, and havenít come across any frighteners yet !  BUT, Notts County have 3 excellent attacking players who Iím sure IC will be have a big think about over his Xmas Pud !  Reeves is a tenacious Billy Bremner type with a great shot, Wootton is a tall CF who is great in the air, but also has clever feet on the floor, and Roberts is a slippery match-winner of real skill.  But we have the talent to spoil their appetite for their Xmas Pud as well.....

Attractive stadium.  They donít look as good as Notts County did on TV this week !  We have our usual decent chance, IMO....
