General Discussion / Re: If you were the manager
« on: January 07, 2024, 03:47:04 PM »
TonyM - I don’t think players really go on how the manager has set them up to play!  I think players only pretend to listen when the manager screams from the touchline and points in a temper to where they should go!  The manager, imho, before the game,  should merely tell them to try to always outnumber the opposition whether attacking or defending…

An obvious succeeder in the making while at Lynn.  I recall the advice on here that “Carey should be put on loan while he  learns the game”!  Sam Kelly wasn’t rated either.  People go on muscle rather than ability for some strange reason!

Mall - I agree!  I and others would have an equal chance of winning a match against a name manager!!!  But then I don’t think I have the only answers, as everyone on here has their own equally valid opinions!  It’s the eyes that inform my opinions, not listening to Redknapp and Carragher trying to sound like they know more than those who watch the game!  I’m also entertained by the likes of Pep and Klopp answering pretentious drawn-out questions with virtually one-word answers with an understandable smirk on their faces!  Take a look!

On a Subbuteo board the formation counts, because the players stay in the formation apart from one at a time.  On a real pitch, the only formation that works is the mobility to try to outnumber the opposition in all areas of where the play is at a particular time, so as to give passing options that the opponents struggle to stop. Commitment comes in with the effort to be amongst those doing the outnumbering.  All spotted by the Dillathon by watching with it’s antennae instead of listening to the cliche-ridden views of pundits being paid looadsamoney to make themselves sound in-depth expert analysts!!!!

I think it’s an ego thing!  So many managers leave good players on the bench (the ones who enjoy the game have paid to see) because they believe that their “system” is paramount.  Then the other team comes along, pick their most talented player(s) and WIN!  Still can’t believe Newcastle doubted St Max!!!……. Sad for the club though, but, apart from the SC era, unlike many of our peer clubs from “olden times”, we have never grown from Southern League days, neither in ground infrastructure nor playing standard or finances, and it looks as though we’re bound for the level that is natural for the club.  Having said that, some of those peers have hit harder times than us!….  C’mon Steven, get lucky! You’ve tried hard enough!!!

The Dillathon computer blew up when info was inserted that AL knew Barrett was fit, but didn’t select him in last week’s game, and again today vs Darlington.  Not picking the most talented player in the club is ridiculous.  We’re all picking who to blame.  I’m with Steven Cleeve, and having difficulty being impressed by a bloke who doesn’t pick his best players….  Let SC put his ideas into action,  and leave the refurbished Dillathon computer to pick the players!….  Keep smiling, we’re not in one of the world’s war zones wondering when the next food is coming from….

I don’t see how Al’s opinion on a player is of any greater significance than a spectator’s.  It’s a simple game of opinions. The Man U manager constantly picks McTominay to compete against quicker and slicker midfield opponents, and doubtless there will be Birmingham City supporters driven to distraction by Rooney selections!  I just think picking his BEST players is all a manager has to do, (after he has attracted them to the club, of course!). Gloucester were really poor at The Walks, but if they’re Number 7 fancies a year or two on the Nth Norfolk coast, put the feelers out straightaway!!!  Happy New Year to all!

Why would we want to lose Barrett?  The likes of Crowther can be made out of village players, whereas talented players are hard to find and keep.  JB has been the best player here throughout, and would have been even better had he had others of his level around him.  On the finance front, fingers crossed things aren’t as bad as have been painted.  Perhaps “Academies” can produce players, but I’m not a believer that footballers can be taught, and if the odd one is found he will be likely to go to a higher level.  There is a chance of avoiding relegation, but it is now looking difficult.  Suggest putting JB first name on the team sheet, and going for wins rather than holding out for 70 minutes a game…

And that’s what I mean.  Many would be happy to be a big fish in a tiny pool!….And it probably is the level that local ambitions will take us in the end.  It would keep a fair number of regulars, but not attract newcomers, imho….

Sorry - meant to say “re-read”….  But we’re in a mess alright.  Sc, imo, was the first Chairman to see what could be done with this club, so he funded it handsomely.  Looks like it’s failed, but thanks SC for trying.  No one else has.  If we look at our original opponents, from the Midland or Southern league onwards, we’re one of the few who have made virtually no progress, either in the team, the ground, the finances, or the level, apart from SC’s reign.  Some will be sad if we drop sharply, but I fear many will be just as happy at a more local level.  Pity, and fingers crossed for the future.

So far I’ E only read the first post on this thread.  It filled me with dread (exaggeration, as only a game!).  I feel that the idea of a local manager with a local squad would be the lowest point we have ever reached.  Now to read the rest!

YE GODZ!!!!  Lesson for all of us.  Don’t put money on football results!  Congrats to the club and all personnel for this surprising and magnificent win….  Can we go from here?  Happy Xmas and New Year to all who wish for better days for KLTFC!….

Hope it improves us, but frustrating that every new signing is another defender!  I know they’re harder to come by, but we need goalscorers!
