General Discussion / Re: Bradford PA at home
« on: March 11, 2020, 01:01:15 PM »
I didn’t see the game, but can imagine that TonyM is right in not thinking BPA weren’t over-physical.  I haven’t yet seen a side relying on physicality in this league, and if we prepare  and select to compete with it, we would be barking up the wrong tree.  There are lots of cliches in football that I believe are just latest bandwagonners.
“Strength” is often said by big-name pundits when the playback regularly shows no contact at all !  “winning a foul” is another.  I don’t believe any player ever does that...  “Here you are, take a kick at my leg.  It might ruin my career but it’ll be worth it for a free kick to my team”. Don’t think so !  There’s just a few pointers to take our minds off the worst result of the season.  Roll on Saturday !  Plenty more pointers, if wanted !!!

Didn’t see the game so can’t really comment, but going to anyway !  We all have our own convictions, including IC.  Mine is that attack is the best form of defence, because while it’s up their end, it isn’t up ours - (yes, still room for humour !). But that only works if we flood back en masse when we lose the ball, so it’s hard work.  On paper, last night’s team had efficiency and solidity written all over it, but lacked enough “slipperiness” to unlock a packed and determined defence.  Not having seen the game, I can’t tell if that (what I call) slipperiness was what was lacking, so I’ll shut up and go get some breakfast !.....  But, look, every team hits a bad patch, even York and KL !  Start again on Saturday - York have put their “Hereford” behind them....

I liked Pauli’s idea on this one - on the ground and Southwell to start, so MG for a rest....  Loughbro’s team looks good, , but I never like 3 CHs.  However, at home we have the team to win using any selection, unless we’re all under-estimating Bradford - they must be decent to beat Chester, albeit at home.  Home and awayy I always want an attacking selection because a top-heavydefensive line-up lets the opponents attack more.  We need to get up their end more, if you’ll pardon the expression ! ......

Yes... mustn’t forget Fox    Not many could have come in and make us not regret the loss of laser season’s full-backs.  I actually think that, despite the common wish toincrease squad size and consequent options, we may have slightly too many players.  We don’t want anyone feeling frustration at not getting enough chances....

I agree with Mr. Mallard’s choice of who to rest, and all in this squad should be aware they will again “resume duty” in no time at all.  Southwell needs a start, and has had some outstanding performances at this level.  Would also like to see Carey and Kelly back, and given some responsibility in the Bradford game.  Certainly agree with the belief that Bradford won’t be easy, as demonstrated by their victory over Chester, but I’m not tech-savvy enough to be able to look back to see who posted it !  I shall advise IC on the team selection for the game later in the week.......

Yes, KES, the football chat is certainly more enjoyable, and obviously we are as one with hopes of the team winning this league.  Not only are we back to winning ways with yesterday’s excellent result, but in the recent less successful period many of our main rivals often did us a real favour with their own results !  It may well still prove tricky, but there can’t be another club, at any level, in a better position than KLTFC - apart from Liverpool !........

KES - if I sat in a taxi smelling of detol,  and the driver told me he’d just returned from a country where everyone was wearing a mask, I’d go and get a check-up on Monday morning.  The driver had no idea where his passengers had been or who they had been in contact with.  No panic, agreed, but no doubt it’s a quick and simple test....

Agreed, KES, that we don’t want panic.  However, the problem with your suggestion, IMO, is that we don’t know who IS affected, nor who is in contact with them, probably unknowingly.  That is what causes the actual spread.  Worse, people don’t have to be in contact with those affected, nor those in contact with them, just touch what they’ve touched, or walk into a cough or sneeze !

Coastal Linnet echoes my feelings about the Mail, and he did it with a cracking joke.  I read it to my wife and she hit on Coastal’s methodology to perhaps relieve the current mysterious shortage of toilet rolls !!!

Yes KES, you ARE missing something obvious......  We are thankfully free of it here at the moment, but it only takes one before it’s a town or county problem, especially if some ill-informed carrier goes into a pub thinking “it’s only a sniffle”.  Let’s do everything to keep it out of our area, if that is possible.

Thanks for that, Lindsay’s boot.  Good luck to IC and the team today.  Considering the serious stuff going on in the world today, particularly the current “nasty” that hasn’t yet hit our corner, talking in depth about our footy fix might be a bit trite.  So only a quickie from me - I just hope IC picks a strongly attacking line-up, because we don’t need the Gateshead form team all over our penalty area for 90 minutes ... COYL !

I sincerely wish Mark all success in whatever policies he adopts in his rather important position.  I really do.  I also hope ticket sales for the Black Tie Dinner go extremely well.  However, not that my opinion matters, but I do think that he has been unlucky in that the period in which he intends to hold the event, in that it is on the receiving end of several attacks beyond the wit of man.  The two big ones are Brexit, with the pessimism it may induce in prospective attendees, in consideration of the possible risks to their income, despite the optimism being displayed to enthuse the public in the entire venture, plus the worrying virus currently scaring the pants off some us older and less fit individuals who in happier times might enjoy such an evening.  Again, I really hope Mark’s effort is a roaring success.
Finally, I’ve been asked to come clean on names, and can declare that Dilly dilly is in fact a pseudonym for “The Font - He who knows what others only think they know......”........  COYL!!

Just seen the team.  Do like Southwell coming in, but don’t like 3 Centre Halves because I think it enables the Opponents to have too much attacking time, brings them on to us rather than us defending at THEIR end .....  However - fingers crossed...

We’re apparently all agreed that Power needs space to run into.  I did put that as his problem against Kidderminster.  I just think Kiddie were good at ensuring they constantly had 22 legs as a forest that we couldn’t find a way through, and they flooded forward with menace on several occasions.  I keep thinking of this as the “Leipzig” game as I enjoyed watching their team of about 8 quick elusive “ forwards“ doing all the attacking and virtually all the defending against Spurs.  The GK and 2 CBS were the exception.  Point is, I don’t think many could do that as successfully against us as Kiddie did that day.  Agree with Mallard that Power would be ideal away for the reasons we’ve discussed....  Three points tonight, PLEASE, IC !......
