Iím with KES on this. But I think there is rom for optimism, and thatís coming from a glass half empty man, or what used to be called a realist.  My optimism for next season, as Iíve bored people with before, comes from the Slough and York games.  If we are competitive next season, and can really mix it with all the opponents, I believe we can attract regular number like those seen at the two games I mentioned.  We have to sell the potential, somehow, OUTSIDE the ground.  We may not have the best ground at this level, but we are capable of being amongst the biggest attendances.

Thatís very good news !  On the Hospital End, good question from B & Q.  We badly need a stand at the Hospital End, covered, and deeper, plus, IMHO, steeper terrace at  the Tennyson End.  I know itís money, money, money, but if we prefer this level or the League, and can sustain it, itís essential.  It would almost certainly be imperative if we are serious about the League, eventually.

With you on that, Dazza.  I think that, at his fittest, he would have been a top player at any National League club.  You could see when he came on against Portsmouth that he would have gained a place in their team as well - he was their level too.  A real loss, especially as our club aspires, next season, to reach the level he was already at, IMHO....

General Discussion / Re: The Pitch
« on: April 27, 2021, 04:32:33 PM »
The pitch has improved, but it still lacks the surface a good team would need.  We hear a lot about the way IC likes to play.  With the constant swapping of players forced on the club, it hasnít always been possible to play that way.  Sometimes, however, the selection hasnít helped, having on several occasions been too defensive in personnel, and no flow-link to carry the ball forward into attacking positions, and with enough players to create opportunities.  The result of those set-ups being too many long punts, and hopeful crosses, with people like Adam M and Dale S having to chase hopeless causes, and having no chance of getting the ball.  All IMHO, of course.  But there have been encouraging displays as well.  It will be areal blow if King is not fit, as he is easily our most creative player..  Anyone know why he went off in the Dagenham game ?

Quite a gamble, but the crowds next year could be extremely good.

General Discussion / Re: Ground Development Fund (GDF) Ė update

Well done to all concerned.  I long for improved terraces behind both goals, with cover at one end, and a return of the terraces that used to be between the end of the Main Stand, and the corner flag at the Hospital End. But I didnít contribute to the GDF because I thought it had got stuck !  Not a hypocrite, however, as I stuck my £ 300 in to the general fund, and will do again.  We have to keep this club improving on all fronts...

It DOES KES , I agree with that.  But it. feels worse for me, being what some like to call a ďpuristĒ.  It often looks to me that certain managers often take off the player causing the opposition the most problems, and replacing him with a safety first type player.  It happens here under IC, whose opinions I do, of course, respect, considering the two years heís given us. It seldom works, IMHO, because, it gives the opponents the initiative.  And I would like to say I donít understand the opinion of some on here who arenít completely onside with SC.  I think he has done us proud, and I hope he retains his interest and ambitions.

General Discussion / Re: Kairo Mitchell Leaves for Chesterfield
« on: April 11, 2021, 01:05:06 PM »
Many on here are concerned about next season, and understandably so.  If, however, SC and IC can keep the ship afloat, we start next season, (if Covid allows), with big potential.  I base this on the York crowd, and the fact weíll have as big a game as that every fortnight !  If we are doing well, we can pull in some of the BEST crowds in that league, and therefore swell the coffers to a level that will attract better players.  Every reason to be cheerful, IMHO.  I must deliver a Dilly-downer, however, for my honoured fellow scribes....  I didnít rate Kairo Mitchell, and donít think we have reduced the teamís capabilities by selling him !!!!!  Sad we lost Marriott, but we have Southwell, who will thrive with better attack-minded players around him.  I hope we keep Carey and King, but who knows......

Good idea, KES, but I canít take you on yet, because of the caveat I put in my post.  I donít remember how Eastleigh play.  If Peter Batterham is correct on his description of Eastleighís style, I would agree that AM will struggle to score.  If, however, they have a balanced side, and one that attacks in numbers, I would take you on.  It will be interesting.  I recall AMís touch line trickery against Maidenhead that caused our winning goal.  He is well capable of that in the future.  PBís post about Eastleighís system sounds identical to the way we were playing earlier on, and one that made the tasks of Marriott and Southwell much harder, always having to chase lost cause balls flying over their heads like there was a gale force wind, even on a still day !  COYL !M!

Sorry - pushed the wrong button.  I meant to post my last one on the Adam Marriott thread !

Very disappointing that Marriott and Davies are gone.  Adam M showed against Maidenhead that his close skills were still going to pay dividends in this league.  However, we then hit a patch of picking heavily defensive line-ups that left people like him and Loza isolated, with constant large gaps between most of the team and them, and with no ďfloodĒ into attacking areas from the sort required, except at set-pieces.  I canít remember Eastleighís style of line-ups, but I suspect that if they have an attacking selection, AM will again score regularly.  Pity, but onwards and upwards, hopefully.  Davies was quick, and we needed that.

Poor first half, much better second.  Donít understand TonyMís idea that Kiwomya and Gyasi movement not the best, but each to their own,  Gyasi makes us harder to contain.  I thought Gash looks better at CH than he does as CF !  Sacrilege, I know, in these parts !  Howard much better this week - played well.  And Davies, for the small time he had, looks one to keep.  Looks fast and tricky, something we often lack.  Surprised to hear that Mair given contract at Norwich, though good luck to him.  And congrats toHornchurch beating Notts County, and making Wembley.  They were too good for us on the night, playing very good, mobile, on the ground football.  All IDHO... (the clue is in the name.).  I appreciate seeing good-hearted difference of opinions, a la Kes and Mallard, but perfectly happy with a bit of ďmouthĒ as well, a la Clunan, if ya get mí drift !

Or Nathan Fox.  Only saw one winger get the better of him in the NLN...  that was the small Chester winger.  He was a good attacker too.  No idea why he was moved on....  And..  although I like the four midfielders KES listed, I donít think they play together going forward.  They all try a surge, but lose it before passing. In most games, all KL players do that, constantly chasing a ball that has escaped their control.  Alty were nippy and worked together all game tonight.  There were always free men to use to keep a move going.  We seem to have lost that aspect... IMHO....And still think Pedro is better than the two who have replaced him, AND good enough for this league....

Concerned !  How many Centre-halves and Right- backs does a team need ?  We need goalscorers to win games.  On Carey, he was in the Dilly team when others were calling for him to be loaned out to ďlearn the gameĒ, whatever that means.  BUT, I do think heíd be better off playing NL for another year, rather than a bit pert player higher up.  On Altrincham, no Diilyteam can be selected, because some of the players are now unknown quantities.  But Gyasi is on the Dilly team sheet.  Davies looked handy on Sat, as general, the changes and recruitment do look promising, because it suggests IC and SC are planning a real course out of this Covid/Financial quagmire.
