General Discussion / Re: Altrincham and Maidenhead
« on: September 29, 2021, 05:12:43 PM »
I have a cheek commenting, at the moment, because I haven’t seen a ball kicked at The Walls all season, as I’m a Covid-Coward !  I’m about to catch some videos of games, I hope, so I’m still premature, if you’ll pardon the expression !  However, last night vs Altrincham, the  texts on this site again gave the impression, as against Dagenham, that we could have sewn the game up by half-time, if we had a goal scorer.  My cynicism is possibly known on here, but I hold out no hope for the Big man/Small man tactic, currently awaited, as I think “ holding it up” football isn’t usually successful nowadays.  I still think AM would have done it for us now that the team are creating chances, but, Taylor now a better bet, through availability but we do need a permanent solution.  Recruitment is more important than tactics.

Fully agree, KES.  Bleak prospects, I’m afraid.  Goal scorer needed is the one point that unites us all.  I feel a bit sorry for IC and SC, because there is a lot of luck in football, and they don’t have total control of it.  On the plus side, the chances are coming, and we are better, certainly than last season, and it’s is possible that a regular scorer could show we are still, just, on an upward path.  I’m not ramming my solution down any throats, but I would certainly like to see Marriott, or perhaps Joe Taylor receiving the ball in or near the opponent’s penalty box….

Jimmy was the closest English football ever had to Lionel Messi.  He was also the epitome of a nipster, and the sort of player who was in every team, (still is, abroad), before we got hung up on trends like “Big and Strong”, “winning fouls”, “That holding role” etc…..  I believe we’re just coming out of it now, with the likes of Salah, Mane, Son, etc…. COYL - pick the nipsters !!

Where was Gyasi ?  And the beauty of Marriott, or players like him, if we could find one, is that he/they don’t get involved in wrestling, or the push and shove rubbish that we’ve been told is part of today’s game up front, but only need a yard of space from the marker to enable them to slot it home !  They get the yard they need by a no-contact side-step to leave the marker nowhere.  That’s what we lack, IMHO.  If not Marriott, there must be someone, somewhere.  Maybe the lad Taylor, although I don’t know his style, but he certainly scores goals, albeit at a lower level.  I believe that a chance-taker can score goals at any level, as long as the team are good enough to make the openings.

We would have won that game in the first half with Marriott.  The approach play was good; the chances were decent, and it needed a compose goal scorer.  Go get him !!!  We are now competitive, but have no goal scorers   Simples !

Not many Selectors coming on here these days, so the Dilly team to beat Dagenham is as follows…. 
Jones:  Jones,McFadden,Bird,Denton:   Barrows,Clunan:   Gyasi, Rowley, Walker:   Morias.  Subs, Bastock, Fernandez, McGavin, Linton, Sundire,   Attack in droves, and everyone to defend.  IMHO.  Where are the rest of our traditional pundits ?!!  Can’t do this job on my own !!

I look forward to the possibles of Gyasi,, Rowley, Linton,  and Morias putting some of the better teams under a lot of pressure.  For today, the Dilly team is …..
Jones:   Barrows, McFadden, Bird, Denton::   Coleman, Clunan, Rowley, Sundire:   Linton, Gyasi……
Subs:  Bowry, Jones, Mcgaviin, Gold, Fernandez.  A win today should set up a decent season for all, as long as we are diligent about steering clear of Covid, with the numbers again building up.  And really, obviously that is the most important thing….

General Discussion / Re: The game today v Chesterfield
« on: August 31, 2021, 12:21:33 AM »
Because we were missing King, Morris, and Rowley today, we couldn’t expect to cause them too many problems.  We were competitive in the first two games, and I hope and suspect that we will be again, soon.  I don’t agree with criticism that Marriott didn’t do it at this level.  He was in a poor team that created hardly any chances, mainly due to Covid, furlough, and temp loans.  He is a player who only needs a yard to side-step an opponent and slot it home, and now that we may arrive in the oppo box more often, a player like him will have more opportunities.  King is very important, but with Morias, Gyasi and Rowley, I could see Marriott doing it again for us.  Unfair to judge Gold Omatayo yet, as I haven’t seen him, but YouTube clips suggest goals will be hard to come by.   I’m afraid we were right to fear Kabongo Tshimanga, but perhaps Rowley and Morias together can give us a similar degree of devilment…..Too early to be despondent…….

He’s one of the nipsters, KES !  He twists the “lunks” inside out !….

B & G - Thanks. I am currently missing out, but I have an underlying condition.  I do hope we start getting a great crowd again, as I believe this team could do well.  But, to all who go, be careful, we don’t want to hear of even ONE supporter catching this damn thing.  And. KES, Kabongo doesn’t need or use “ Strength” because they’ve nothing to wrestle, after he’s put them on their arses with a side-step or body swerve.  I recall being most impressed with his nipsterism against our team last season.  Low “centre of gravity”, I think they call it !   Dilly compromise - Will accept 3 central defenders, as long as there are no “holders” in front of them, Clunan, Sundire, and King, for me, linking with Gyasi and Rowley, with Gold as the bloke to come on when something different needed.  Nerd rant over, much banter to come.  Top six ?!!!

That’s a worrying attendance prediction. We may now have a team that can do well at this level - surely support shouldn’t drop off now ?  Says a stay-at-home Dilly, who is a Covid Coward !  I used to use Obsession spray, but I found I couldn’t keep the ladies at bay…. For today, after a very good performance at Yeovil, I hope we can play Rowley, but yay or nay, we surely must play Gyasi.  His sort cause chances for all, including Coleman on Saturday.  Must be very wary of Kabongo Tshimanga - the arch nipster who destroyed us for Boreham Wood last season.

It was a very defence-heavy, safety-first line-up, but, all credit, we sounded (on Somerset radio) like we were the better team.  But we struggled to score, because, although attackers can make up the numbers to keep them out, defenders can push them back, but not usually score.  When we balanced it, and had as many attackers as needed to push them back, we defended through being up their end, and scored, through having attackers up there instead of defenders, !!  Gyasi should have started, and hopefully will vs Chesterfield.  Gyasi and Rowley can frighten the lives out of teams, plus Marriott, to stick’ em home !!!  …..       
         NEXT !…..  Football is a simple game…..

Agreed  Mallard.  Great result.  And a big lesson.  Attackers can defend, as numbers count.  But defenders attack and don’t often score.  If we only picked a positive and balanced team, we can do really well in this league.  IC has collected well, now should be braver in selection.  Gyasi made the difference.  IMHO !!
