By the cringe, don’t we need 3 points here !  KES, TonyM, and Mall have some good ideas, but the Dilly team for tonight’s big ‘un is as follows:  ..... Mair:  Barrows, Smith, McFadden, Denton:  Carey, King :  Kelly, Kiwomya, Gyasi:  Marriott..... Subs, Southwell, Gash, Clunan, Jarvis, McCauley.   Let’s GO !!!

Disappointed with the lack of reaction to the Clunan on the tannoy suggestion !   Had me laughing at my own joke, as usual !
Back on footie - Loza was in every Dilly team.  If he’d been a regular, as he should have been, he might not have got the hump.  Good player, deffo a mistake, IMHO, of course !

Good side, KES, and TonyM knows a slippery nipster when he sees one.  I’ve had a tactical think-in...  Instead of our frequent line-up of GK, 3 CHs, 2 FBs, and 2 Cloggers in midfield, I suggest we get a Double-decker bus from the depot, and park it in front of our goal.  It will save on wages, and, being a DD, will be perfect for crosses into our box.  Crossing the half-way line might be a tad difficult, but we’ll pick one player to lunk it up, a fat smoking-chav to “just sit” and wait for a slippery opponent to try it on, and a willing workhorse to chase lost causes, with the intention of squeaking a 1-0 win ....  There y’are - a 3-man team !!
Oh, almost forgot - Clunan on the tannoy......

I didn’t stream last night’s game - only the 2nd one I’ve missed - and not because of the Champions League .  Sounds like there was real improvement - Good - but you know the Dilly stuff.....  I don’t think a system like that can win more than once in a long while, because a team with 90% of the game will score at some time.  Not being negative, but it is no surprise to me that KL were a lot better in the 2nd half - it was a more balanced team, and able to keep them back more.  Still, onwards and upwards, as they say....

Most on here are much more clued up on this subject than me, and impressively so.  I can only see that the League should be closed down, for the essential curtailing of the spread of the virus, especially considering the various mutations that we’re not yet confident of beating.  The football and finances are dear to all hearts, but distinctly secondary in the scheme of things.  I think KES and B & G are representative of my way of looking at it.  Then, fingers crossed, we start off late next season, but with perhaps 4 to 5,000 in the ground, and all to play for !!

If crowds had been regular, and we hadn’t bumped into Tommy Virus, I believe the early games would have been 4 to 5,000.  This would have improved the cash situation so much that other players would have come in, keeping the snowball growing.  So, by now, I think we would have had a stronger team, and some of the best attendances in this league.  Approaching 5,000 for virtually every game.  I pray SC keeps his hopes up, and we could see this happening next season, with the very big clubs that this league supplies.

Spring is sprung; the grass is ris: Tonight the Linnets do the biz..!!!.  No, have to agree with you Mallard, me ole Duck !  Can only see a win for NC.  I just hope our team have the spirit to have a go, because they can’t be enjoying the games at the moment, and can see teams around them improving.  However, you never know...  Very hard to pick at team while we’re making so little progress, and I don’t really see anyone playing that well, except maybe McFadden.  BUT - the Dilly team tonight has changes !! 
MAIR;  JONES, MCFADDEN, SMITH, DENTON;  RICHARDS, CAREY, KING, KIWOMYA;  MARRIOTT, SOUTHWELL/GYASI (2 minds).... Subs GYASI/SOUTHWELL, KELLY, CLUNAN, GASH, BROWN, DILLY, MRS DILLY....  Gung-ho, NO.  All back, and come forward in trios, plus others getting up there quickly, and back even quicker.  Their forwards are good, especially Wootton and Roberts, who is the slippery nipster in chief.  Bribe the ref, and sneak 2 subs on, for every one that comes off....

Bad night for the Dilly brain......  Forgot Richards !  Him in, instead of McCauley, and Barrows moves back.  Haven’t taken my pills yet !

Just want to add that Kiwomya would be the first name on the Dilly team-sheet, if I knew he was fit and available.  COYL......

Good evening all.  I haven’t the time to read Captain Sensible’s opinion at the mo - will do later.  So my closest opinionateratum so far on this thread is gs50, and I believe KES and Mallard.  I don’t think we should be playing. However - as we seem to be, at the risk of upsetting Tony B, I can’t go with the 3 CH “self-harm” system of spending virtually all the game in our own half, and hoping the opponents miss a bagful of sitters.  It might be more arguable if our GK started to command the box.  For what it’s worth, and I would suggest a tidy sum if you would be so kind, here is the Dilly team for tonight......

Mair;  Jones, McFadden, Smith, Denton; Barrows, Kelly, King, Kiwomya/Gyasi, Marriott, Southwell.  Subs Gash, Gyasi/Kiwomya, Carey, Brown, McCauley/Fleming.
No idea about the injury situation, but think subs should be used at h-t if we’re struggling.  Be nice to be as “footbally” as Hornchurch were - big learn available there !

From team selections it is evident that IC is trying to stop teams he understandably expects to be too good.  I probably bore the pants off many, and it’s darn cold at the moment, and if so, apologies.  You can see from nearly every team sheet that the personnel are unlikely to get across the half-way line, into the opponent’s half, with the ball still at their feet.  So we are constantly under pressure in our own half.  It’s not a football-knowledge thing, it’s a “naked eye”thing.  Stodgy “experienced” sorts are going to be out-run, and tricked to bits.  I thought we’d changed, but we’ve gone back to the original safety-first format.  And with a keeper who doesn’t think commanding his box is as important as great saves !  IC is good, but he’s become too careful, IMHO.  I’m packing this in soon, because I’m getting on my own nerves !

Too “down” to pick a team.  This could be the last game this season.  What a tragic season for KLT, as many of the teams have had years of this level of opposition, or higher.  For us, however, it’s the first opportunity ever.  The likes of Wrexham, and all the other “big” clubs in this league would have given
us massive gates, big money, and a quickly growing snowball.  Such a pity for all who are interested...Just hope Steven Cleeve hangs on for better days.....

Don’t think like that KES.  It’s a long way back in this thread, but I can’t agree with Paul47 about this being a moaner’s forum.  I regard Mallard and KES as personal friends now, apart from their failure to pay up for my football tactics advice.  I meant to answer Mall’s request for assistance on selection for the Stockport game, but then the club chickened out of playing them !  Overall thought for this hugely difficult season is the massive disappointment caused by the virus from hell, that we would have had a dozen matches at The Walks with crowds and atmospheres to easily match the York game, and we have missed out so tragically - especially Steven Cleeve....

Yes, KES, they were able to pin us after the substitutions, but surely it was because we’d lost our “get outs” ( King and Kiwomya).  We did ride Lady Luck (if you’ll pardon the analogy !) before that, but I believe we went defensive (in the personnel), and that sealed our fate.  I may have recalled this wrong, but taking off King for the new defender whose name I haven’t even remembered yet, seemed incomprehensible to me.  We are doing better, in selection and play, but we’re unfortunately back in trouble.

A problem I thought we had started to overcome.  Not often a team can defend by defending !  OK, it wasn’t just us deciding to shut up shop, they were slick and quick, so managed to pin us back.  But we lost our most effective attacking players on the day (Kiwomya and King), partly through bad luck, and partly by being too careful, too defensive in our 2nd half selection.  We CAN get well up this league if we keep them back more....Ye Godz, ...Good night - look at that flaming time !!
