Thanks KES, and I can hear that claxon !!!  It’s not the only aspect of the game I believe is necessary, or that I enjoy, but I believe we, and only us, put too much emphasis on a “ physical” side of the game that is wildly exaggerated.  If it were real, you’d see players getting up off the deck and congratulating the lunk on his physical effort which clobbered him, and reduced his ability in the game.  You don’t though - the “ recipient” is always angry, and rightly so.  Some of the foreign ones look dumbfounded that it’s allowed !

Sorry to be “ off kilter” again, but it sounds to me like we need a replacement skill-man for Cameron King, rather than another defensive holding player who can “pick a pass”.  I just hope we’ve not seen the last of CK, though I suspect we have….

Mallard, or anyone else - I’m not educating anyone.  We all have opinions on the game, and I’m just stating mine.  Perhaps I shouldn’t have put that “Mall showed he doesn’t understand “ nipsters or nipsteirism” - what I meant was he perhaps doesn’t understand “what I mean” by nipster.  That’s different, and I apologise if my wording offended anyone..  No one’s opinion is more correct than anyone else’s.  In an era in which we constantly hear about Strength, Winning a foul, Good fouls, some midfielders having the job of prowling about and breaking up play by fouling, etc….  I just believe it’s all nonsense.  Even Souness called them out for it, saying it would “ be the end of the game” !!  Good players don’t get bowled over, because the lunk is often tackling or wrestling thin air ! (IMHO).  On YT, there’s a great commentary on the 1974 Bremner/Keegan game.  It summed it up a treat , for me …..

Now that we have a more attacking selection availability, I believe Marriott would be the icing on the cake, as the more chances any goal scorer gets in a game, the more he will score…… and we know he can score !

Yes… Good luck to Sonny Carey.  I recall being surprised to read, months ago on the forum, that”Carey should go to a lower league to learn the game, and get “some minutes”.  The Dilly query at the time was “ Who to pick to play alongside Carey and Kelly ?!!  Point is, I think the club failed to capitalise on Kelly’s obvious skill level, and this is a Dilly call to get him back, as we are now building a nippier passing team that he would thrive in….

Not sure we missed King ?  King and Rowley together would lift our level, imho.  Rowley did look decent vs Southend, and I can see him thriving if supplied with King’s vision and ability.  We are on the verge of having a team that will trouble good sides in this league.

My last piste was incomprehensible due to typos that I didn’t check.  So, just to say, the highlights surprised me.  I agree with KES andd others that we looked like a NL side.  We were a lot more cohesive and “nippy”, ( dare I say).  The GK looked good, though the whole game might have shown that he didn’t come for crosses.  Morals and Rowley looked the nipsters we’ve lacked, and that will be even better if we include Gyasi with them.  A friend who went told me it was poor, but he only likes 50s FA Cup type football, the ball lumped up to big ugly strikers with no teeth.  We can be ok, if we keep picking mobile, not stodgy teams.  The fans will return, if and when we win a couple….

Just watched the highlights, and was surprised.  IC has brought in some decent players.  The GK did very well, and Maria’s Andy Rowley looked very useful additions.  Dillification may have been a little pessimistic, S the team actually looked nippy and mobile.  Big support from locals justified for future games,….

Mallard has shown that he doesn’t get the essence of nipsterism, or nipsters.  And others, imho, are too stuck on “beef” in positions where we need “players” !  A nipster can be any size, not merely “slight”, although good nipsters tend to be smaller ( or what the macho analysts call “ a low centre of gravity” , because saying “small” messes up their “Big and Strong” fixation.  The essence is the ability to trick their way past an opponent, and nip away over a short distance.  “Beef” or “ Strength” is often a cliche, usually spouted by those who buy the macho nonsense spoken by pundits, to make out there is something extra in the “English game”.  Players are often said to have “used their strength” , when a playback shows there was no contact whatsoever !  Salah, Mane, even Grealish are all nipsters.  Players nearly always murder beefcake !!  Glad to be of service !!

Don’t get the vitriol against SC.  He’s the major part of why we’re now at this level !  Keep the faith.  But I do think we badly need creative midfielders and genuine goal scorers.  Still believe, and will accept the flack for it, that in a team that can get men up in numbers, therefore creating openings, Marriott or Southwell would retrieve their eye for goal….. ??!!

No streaming ?…..   During Covid ?…..  There are people with conditions who may not wish to risk even the reduced possibility of bumping into someone carrying the virus without knowing it, and not wearing a mask.  And (understandable) Covid Cowards (aka “sensible people) won’t be the only ones to miss out, as there will be other people, perhaps elderly, or infirm, as well.  And there may be far more people this season to add to the club’s finances by buying a seat in the grandstand of their living rooms.  COYL…..

Good luck to the team, and consequently the fans.  Can’t have an opinion on your nipster query, TonyM, because the nipsters in the club haven’t been assessed at Dilly headquarters, as I haven’t seen any of the newbies yet.  Dillification of the selection always hopes to see a team with players capable of keeping the opponents on the back foot for as much of the time as possible, because I believe that, in the tide and flow of the playing waves, it is better to have attackers defending, when necessary, than defenders attacking.  Prediction, on guesswork, until analysis can be made at headquarters - KLTFC 1 Sarfend 2….  but, like all on here, I’d love that score to be reversed, and hopefully increased !

For the want of something to do, I just read the Archives.  In the fifties the council put in a banked terrace ( a real one), at the Hospital end.  It held 6,000 people !It’s a sad thought to me that we are now seemingly unable to accommodate a mere 4,000 throughout the whole ground !at least on an organised basis).  The bigger the club has become on the pitch, the smaller we have become in infrastructure, comfort, and safety, all of which will be put to the test on Saturday, and probably the majority of the matches this season.  We badly need an empowered organiser/ manager. Who thinks hard about what’s needed.  Apparently the board announcing the next game, in Tennyson Avenue, is EMPTY, for one of the biggest games in the club’s history.  Why are we so amateurish - it won’t work at this level.
