General Discussion / Formations part 2
« on: January 12, 2020, 04:24:52 PM »
On football in general, and KL in our case, it was great to hear Pep Guardiola, in answer to another of these complicated questions about “formations”... “What is the thinking behind today’s formation (sic) ?”.  Following a mystified shrug of his shoulders he said, “Nothing - sometimes we have 3 , sometimes 5,  and sometimes 7.  We just try to pass the ball and score goals !  The players move !”  I’ve always thought that only in Subbuteo do these formations matter, because on the grass pitch the players MOVE !  Hope KLTFC keep passing the ball and scoring goals !  Don’t think you’ll see Pep talking balderddash with Carragher and Neville any time soon.  Talking point for a drab Sunday afternoon !!

OK “everyone pulling together”, and very welcome, but is Harry Limb any good ?!  Not casting nasturtiums, but did he do well at Parson Drove(?) and Boston Town ?  Also is Richards injury long term ?

Nothing against Women’s football, but are they playing on the Stadium pitch as well ?  Haven’t seen it mentioned, but photos suggest that is their regular pitch.....

General Discussion / Re: Trophy game at Ebbsfleet

Think it should be as strong a team as possible.  If we can get past Ebbsfleet, the Trophy provides possible decent pay-days to come, and cracking games for us “punters” !  On the team, I hope Kelly is fit, and, if so, selected, and, as usual would rather see attacking midfielders throughout.  Would also hope that Smith is about to re-appear soon, (probably not tomorrow), as I think we have a class act there waiting to blossom when he gets a good run in the team.

Well done Stephen Cleeve.  It Is indeed unfair on those paying their way !  I have sympathy for those who genuinely can’t afford it, but cheating the club isn’t the way.  The real problem, of course, is those who can afford it but chose to cheat anyway for their own benefit.  Those people are then hindering the progress of the club they claim to support.

General Discussion / Membership on the KLTFC site
« on: January 06, 2020, 06:25:15 PM »
Just had a look at the Membership benefits on the Club site - Could the inclusion of “non-club” benefits be advantageous ?  Perhaps tickets to a game at a higher level ?  Or vouchers for a money-off or half price to a local hostelry for a meal ?  Cinema tickets ?  Concert tickets ?  Just a thought.  Can’t help thinking out of the box cos I don’t have a box !.......

Yes Mallard, Carey’s did look unbelievable.  He was just unlucky, really.  IF we have to change the team, and we all hope we don’t, I could see Carey moving forward into that slot and doing pretty well....Just a thought....

Apart from periods of injury, wHen all squad are fit, I don’t believe we need any more players.  We have 4 Centre-halves when all available, plus two very capable of playing there (Jones and Barrows).  In midfield we have 8 to chose from, all well worth a place. Hawks, Limb and Stewart add to the list.  Maybe a GK, and two new forwards should we become disappointed with the effect of market forces !  Of course, the keeping them all fit is the key...

Another excellent performance.  Our front eleven are currently proving to be too good for everyone.  BUT - Any news on Adam Marriott ?  A very important question, I’m sure we would all agree.....

Boston’s website is awash with ideas and schemes, not just the advertising boards.  Things like competitions that our club has only ever promoted in a small way.  However, I agree that our continued progress must attract would be sponsors who would be impressed with the potential customers coming into the ground.  Now we need the numbers to rapidly increase.  Good luck to MH, and continued thanks to SC,IC, and the team for this superb season.....

Yes - great result.  Good result at Brackley as well, from our point of view.  Our home crowd really ought to start to snowball from now.......Potentially a very exciting last third of the season...  Anyone know why Kelly off so early ?  No mention on the commentary that I could see ( an otherwise good coverage).

General Discussion / HAPPY NEW YEAR

Happy New Year to all those interested in KLTFC, including those still only thinking about coming to see this excellent team in action....  Special thanks to Steven Cleeve, IC and Mr Bastock, (it hasn’t gone un-noticed how you “ping” a new ball into play when one is heading down Tennyson Avenue after a Hawk-launch !  Hard and low please Hawk, in 2020 !  Not forgetting our fine team , and particularly it’s terrific on the floor pass and move football !  As well as NY greetings, a special thank you to Mr Chairman for his superb sponsorship of our club, ambition for its progress, and....  his humorous programme notes.  Steven - Don’t let the buggers get you down.....  Off now for a third Crafty Hen - the last one before the toast !!!

For older hipsters, it’s right next door to the famous Gliderdrome Dancehall and concert venue.  A few memories for Lynn AND Boston revellers of yesteryear !

Yes, Brackley are becoming a real concern.  Looking back, perhaps our team’s result there in early season is one of our season’s best....Often think managers and pundits exaggerate the complexity of the game, and their “knowledge”, (Mourinho getting rid of Salah and De Bruyne !), but the managers of Brackley and KLT obviously know what they’re doing !

No, Gris, it will be a problem for our club if it’s true....
