General Discussion / Re: End of the line?

Of course we are in a very difficult position.  Survival at this level is still possible.  There are several fellow strugglers, but we’re only a couple of wins away from being truly in the scrap, difficult though they are to obtain.  Just want to say thanks to SC for his huge financial help, enthusiasm, and belief that this club can continue to make progress.  I’m less optimistic than him, because we lack the infrastructure, but we do have crowd potential at this level, despite the understandably low attendees at present.  I think we have a Southern League set-up, but I sincerely hope we see SC, and therefore us, the supporters, achieve his stated ambitions.

Strange how a group of people (us) can all be on the same side, with the same hopes and aims (progress of KLTFC), yet disagree on aspects and personnel to achieve those ambitions.  Not being controversial for the sake of it, but I don’t understand how SC often gets a bad press on here when he has personally paid for the most impressive progress in our rather unimpressive history, while IC is looked on as having great ability, even after two solid seasons with hardly a win, mainly, IMHO, through picking teams with up to eight defenders !  It’s all about a combination of contacts and cash availability, almost nothing more.  Will he have them at Boston ?  I suspect players may be more willing to go to Boston than us, but we’ll see.  COYL, and HNY to all.

I’m a fan of SC and what he has done for this club, but am surprised that he is mystified why the crowds are small.  There is a perfect storm of reasons for this problem.  We are in the middle of a phenomenal pandemic that has officially killed 150,000 people, but doesn’t include thousands of additional deaths in Care Homes, and the announcements are coming from mendacious zealots who care more for the economy than the “pile of bodies” continually growing.  This situation puts the more informed of the population from taking the risk our maniacal “leaders” encourage them to take.  On the club’s “pull factor”, our geographical position is actually an advantage because there are nigh on 150,000 people in a 25 mile radius of the Walks, but the teams performance for about 2 years has been very poor, and therefore unattractive.  If we improved the terracing/accommodation, beat the pandemic, acquired a competitive team, we would be one of the best supported teams in this league.  Not saying any of those three can be achieved, but they are what is needed, as calculated through humble Dillification….  HX, & HNY to all…..

Bit late on this one, as only come on here about once a week.  BUT - I’ve always called the play … “Big Fuss about Sod All”…. Read it in a satirical book called “My Tory Friends, and Yours” by Stanley Walter Broadhurst, on Amazon….

Football managers often can’t see the wood for the cliches - He wasn’t “Big and Strong” !!

The modern football world, KES !  The one inhabited by Guardiola, and not Mourinho !

Good analysis, TonyM, but IDHO, I don’t think there IS a “physical side of the game without the ball”.  That is a foul, and if we get players in like that, we’ll get nowhere !

Why do we assume that ex-players would make good managers ?  I’m not too excited by this new man’s CV, but I suppose “moving on” or being moved on, applies to 90% of the profession.  And I disagree with Kes that Gash would bring much benefit.  He didn’t score enough when he was here, and  (being cynical), I’ve never believed the idea that Number 9s “bring other players into the game”.  If they’re not iIN the game already, they shouldn’t be playing, IDHO !  Anyway, good luck to the new man, and happy Xmas to all on the forum.  We all have our hearts in the same place.  Finally, I always used to think the club could make League football in the end, but I no longer believe so, as the ground was never developed, indeed is a lot smaller than days of yore, and we have a very fickle fan base.  The potential is still there on both counts, but unlikely to come to fruition.

Good speech KES.  A lot of the time in this country “Truth” is often proclaimed by those who think they’re the only ones who know it, and speak it.  SC has financed the best era we’ve ever had, and I hope it continues.  I thought IC was always too defensive, by the way, although I understand he probably thought he didn’t have the quality to take teams on.  Dilly has spoken….!!

I believe people put too much faith in “the striker” AND “the Manager”.  Strikers don’t score many goals in teams that can’t create chances - except in village football.  And managers don’t have a font of knowledge “about football” any more than some Chairmen, or perceptive punters, because there isn’t much to know about the “simple game”.  Some make a lucrative living by talking complicated “tactics” with the help of computer graphics, but give them a team to manage, and they leave quickly, admitting they were “out of their depth”(eg, Gary Neville).  It is more than possible that a perceptive punter, who can see what’s going on in front of him, could manage a team for one game, and beat a full-time pro manager who has been sacked six times, but keeps getting the job, for his “ knowledge “!  So, the Dilly hope for today is that Ken Charles is in a team that can cross the halfway line and create chances, not one with six defenders and three “holders” blocking off their penalty box for 70 minutes, and eventually caving in.  SC just as capable of finding a decent player as IC, IDHO !!!

TonyM…..  Good spot !   I haven’t been to a game this season, which I’m obviously disappointed with.  But I have see several of the players, though not the newer ones.  However, I know what type of players they are, through reading, and other’s comments, and I know the shape of teams that IC seems to prefer.  I don’t think our midfielders are that physical at all, but neither are many of them natural attacking players.  I realise that’s probably due to the money, or lack of, available to our Manager, BUT I’M OFF TO WATCH THE MAN C AND PARIS NIPSTERS !!!!  By the way, I don’t believe there is such a thing as “the physical game”.  It’s always foul play, and is only played by losing teams !!!

Still don’t see how the team are to play good creative football, with up to 8 defensive or “ break-up” players doing the job !  Attack-minded players will obviously be better at attacking than stodgers !  We are back to having teams that, on paper, are likely to find it very difficult getting into the opponent’s half, in a concerted move, and that is again how it’s turning out on the pitch.  Teams defend these days with 8or 9 players behind the ball, not with “Clogger Smith” sorting out individual opponents.  So our line-ups condemn us to be defending for perhaps 70 of the 90 minutes !  That’s me for the week, for what it’s worth !!
