General Discussion / Re: Could be 1000 allowed in on opening day
« on: September 16, 2020, 12:15:55 PM »
I’m with KES on this one.  Haven’t disagreed with a word, so far.  But unfortunately, nationwide, we have far too many people who put “what they want” at the top of their agenda.  We absolutely must put the safety of all ahead of the natural desire to be entertained.  And no, that is not “pessimism”, nor “doom and gloom”, it is realism.  I want to be back at the Walks as much as anyone, but none of us would be pleased with ourselves if we found ourselves standing before a kick-off in respect of someone we knew, and who was  probably a friend of many.

Good luck, MG, and take your time.  You’ll be back soon enough.  I’m a little concerned about the absence of news on Simon Power.  Is there any ?  I believe he is a very important cog in the wheel....

Good luck to Heacham.  But be careful.  There  is a killer virus about.  Too many people think that’s all gone !

I agree with Badger..  I’d pay £15 per livestream.  It would be good if we hyped it enough to get 1500 to 2,000 paying what they can, to help us be in a healthy state when we’re able to go back in.  How about a terrific “crowd” for the Yeovil game ?......

Pleased to see Southwell getting off the mark.  I know I’m repeating myself, but he does look a lively and clever player on YouTube at this level, and a great eye for goal.  Where is Simon Power at the moment -have I missed any news about him ?  Power, Southwell, King, Kelly !!  Mouthwatering possibilities !.....

BTW, I was surprised and delighted at AS’s distribution against NC, most impressive, very Barca, (when they were unbeatable !).  Made some good saves too, mainly through good positioning.

Pity about AM and MG.  Time of the year to “Name your team” for “Lockdown Fun” !!!  I go for speed over short distances as being an important quality, because long distance pace can be nullified if opponents are all behind the ball.  So I don’t think MG and Jarv will feel as irreplaceable as in the past.  Still have parts to play, on occasions.  My team for the opening game, Home or Away... Street; Barrows McCauley, Smith, Brown; Clunan/Richards, Henderson, Kelly, Power; King, Southwell. Subs Mair, Jones, Carey, Loza, Richards/Clunan.  League prediction 9th.   Over to IC, but I’m here for advice should he need it...

I watched the game on livestream, and thought KLFC did quite well, though I don’t know how strong was the NC selection.  I think Southwell will do well.  He’s had some great moments at this level in the past.  King and Kelly looked class.  The passing was good, looked like the passing game has really been stressed.  All positions look competitive within the squad, but about 4 could be on the team sheet without challenge at the moment, for me.  Kelly, King, Power, Marriott. Every other position looks so close..  Apols for rabbiting, but I don’t come on very often, so it all goes in one !

Can’t see Sam K and Hendo competing for a place,, because they are not the same type.  One is speed over short distances - Very handy quality, and the other is more of a play-maker - again an important ingredient.  They could both be in, OR different players who have those qualities - say Richards and Power ?   Good squad though- hard job to pick a team.  The large squad needed for the quick turnOver of games, and more subs, but too many for normal times, if they ever return !

Hope not.  I believe Sam Kelly is just about the most talented player at the club.  Just think he should be given more responsibility, and a regular place in the team to practise it.  It doesn’t surprise me that he had decent runs in league clubs, and I think he would be a real asset at NL level.

Great signing.  Have to disagree with the idea that competition for places, if it involves too many players, it is not “always a good thing for everyone”.  Players often don’t produce their best until they feel they are regulars, and I worry that the squad may become a little top heavy, with the unfortunate possibility of our losing good players.  Whoever left would be a good player, because we don’t have any who are not.  Again, great signing..and well done to all concerned in making it.

Yes, both teams had quick and skilful players.  We have some who have real pace over open spaces/ longer distances, but I wonder whether we have many who are slippery and quick enough over the short distances in busy areas in midfield.  I know we had last season, but they’ll be up against better teams/ players, obviously.  We shall see. I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed Leipzig last season, but they looked good this past week again.  What on earth was Pep doing, leaving all his slippery match-winners on the bench ?  Ridiculous, tbh....  Tactics never as good as good players...

Footballers Social Distancing, including managers, coaches, etc, is a. pathetic sight.  They are so hyped they don’t get it at all.  They seem to think the emotion of the game is bigger than this virus nonsense !  It probably makes others ignore it as well, outside the game.  On the Celtic player, obviously it was a daft move.  One thing I never understand is how do Celtic fans still go mad when the team scores or wins ?!

Still think initiatives are only being aimed at regulars.  It’s a hard journey to reach a really useful total by small individual things like shirt raffles, photo-ops with players etc., admirable though they are.  I continue to believe that we need to sell whatever outside the ground and fans.The initiative needn’t involve football, or it can, but customers don’t need have any interest in this club....

I have nowhere near as much know-how about the running of the club, especially the financial Hargy and bargey..
However, I’m definitely in the camp, if there is one, that thinks SC is the best thing to happen to this club since Peter Tough should have been in the England squad !  No (!), the doubters might be right and we could implode, but fingers crossed for the man “who bought a football club”, as far as I’m concerned !  Only disappointment so far is the Friendly list.  League clubs respect the standard we’re now in enough to appreciate that friendlies against NL clubs are serious work-outs, not friendly testimonial type games for youngsters - so I think we should have tried for a league club.  BUT, there are some good friendlies there too, so only a muted complaint.    Now we need to get this virus sorted.  Peter Tough might have the answer in his bucket !......
