General Discussion / Re: Barnet away Tuesday

Ok - not my last post !  So many people in England, never mind KL, want their team to have 3CHs, 2 FBs, a GK, a couple of hard-tackling M-F hooligans, ....   We’d never get out of our own penalty area !  Then a couple of their small nipsters will score another 5 !  IMHO !  COYLs.  Pick a team to worry them, then everyone back if they get a touch of the ball !!  Start tonight !

I agree that our goals against is a real worry, but don’t agree that we need better defenders.  We are losing so many goals because opponents spend an inordinate amount of time in our half and box.  The top teams in this league have small quick players that are running us ragged, and mainly because they get so many entries into and around our box with the ball at their feet.  We can’t get to their danger area very often because we don’t have players of that sort, or aren’t picking them.  Teams with good defensive records have 8 or 9 back behind the ball, not better defenders.  I believe formations only work on a subbuteo board, because real players move.  It’s my last post, because we’re all on the same side in the end !!

Dilly, do you only watch highlights of football matches or don’t you understand that to counter act these so called slippery players you need players to sit in and break them down. Like Sutton do in beautyman and Davis and like all good teams do. If we played without the likes of Jarvis, clunan and Richards we would get massively overloaded in the middle. I think you’re views are more suited to basketball or a video game

S Preston - I believe all this “sitting in, “holding” etc are made up by pundits earning a fortune by making out there are deep tactics going on !  We had people “sitting in”, and “ breaking up” yesterday; they just ran round them and scored five, as did Solihull and Boreham Wood.  Whike we have people just sitting, the opponents have more opportunities for “just playing” !  No matter - all good banter !  We have to get them back-pedalling, not just us.  I do agree that full-timers have a fitness advantage, of course.

The team sheet looked a worry before the game.  We had Clunan and Jarvis in midfield, which meant if they had any slippery players, we would spend the game trying to break up their forward movements.  If they had any tricky players, and who were quick after they’d beaten a man, we would a) not stop them, and b) not create anything goung forward.  All these teams are beating us by having players, several, who are a mixture of slick, tricky, slippery and nippy !!  Big centre-halves won’t help - we have to spend more time up their end, if you’ll pardon the expression !  All IMHO !  Obviously we all wear different football spectacles !

Not the defence’s fault..  We are simply not putting them on the back foot enough.  We have to stop trying to keep them out, but pick a team to spend a lot more time in their half.  That’s defence as well.  They had too many nipsters, as usual.  We should pick ours, and take ‘em on instead of trying to keep them out.  Still got potential, though. 

Mair and Lupano have made a real difference to the defence.  I’m assuming none of Jones, Power, and King are available.  Disappointing, for me at least.  Without them, the Dilly team for today that is suggested for the management, (IMHO), is as follows......  Mair;  Barrows, Lupano, McAuley/Smith, Brown;  Richards, Carey, Loza, Kelly;  Southwell, Marriott.  Subs McAuley/Smith, Clunan, Jarvis, Mitchell, Bastock.  I feel we need to keep them back in their half, worried about our slippery nipstering.....

Now look here !!!  Important announcement.   DILLIGAF IS NOT THE SAME PERSON AS DILLYDILLY !  And neither does he have any connection with the Dillydilly fan of slippery nipsters !!  On slippery nipsters, we had some good slipperiness from Adam M in that goal line run to make SC’s winner last week, and some slippery nipping by Jamar L as well.  We appear to be slowly back to our better ways, instead of the panicky airborne hoofing we saw early on.  More slippery nipping today please !

Very impressive.  I thought the defending was excellent, individually and as a unit.  Mair and Lupano are prize additions.  Haven’t been impressed with Mair until today, but I am now !  He was superb.  And how long do we have Lupano for ?  Five years, with any luck.  All the others were so good as well.  Prefer an easy draw to a big club, but we may have a good season here !

Agree with KES.  Always amazed when people rightly criticise the Orange Man, but change the subject when his big pals from this side are mentioned.  One of them was on stage with him last week, and the other uses the same barber, methinks ! - well same barber, different bouffant !

I’m not convinced about Mair, yet.  Alex was great at pouncing on things on the ground when it looked like they were going in.  And I don’t think he would have let in the 2 at the weekend.  He did make mistakes, but he’s just about cut them out.  I’m disappointed.  Mair won’t be here next season, IMO.

Is he still here ?  Bring him back, quick !  And Nathan Fox !  (iMHO!!)

Yes.. I’ve seen Kelly and Carey as the first two names on the teamsheet for a couple of seasons.  IC seems to be a bit “either/or”, unfortunately.  Very pleased with the result, but concerned about the football.  I don’t feel Southwell, for example, has had a single ball from midfield at all so far.  That’s why he has to chase everywhere after lost causes
(high punts).  He’s a very mobile and skilful player either with the ball to his feet or a through ball.  But we’re making progress.......

We can’t go - there’s a killer virus about !  No, on football, the ridiculous sight of a pike of players in a heap virtually making love after a goal is scored is a flaming joke !  Do they think the virus understands emotion about something so unimportant in the full scheme of things ?...  and so let’s them off ?!!  And the managers etc - touching elbows at the start, then hugging and kissing after a goal and at the end.  Unbelievable !

Too many people think “defensive” midfielders, and set-ups actually defends !All it does is let the opponents have the ball most of the time, and with much less concern about being attacked.  Then we hear the cliches about the other team’s “strength”, and “physicality”.  I’ve lost count of the games when that’s been the warning about
the opposition, then when we get to the game we find they actually have a number of (yes, going to say it) slippery nipsters !  That type beat a man or pass the ball, and nip past people with speed over just a couple of yards.  Every team so far has relied on those players.  We don’t have any.  And, agreed, Street should be back in the team straightaway.  And, sorry, Jarvis is too slow, IMHO.  We need 3 nipsters from somewhere.  The midfield have given poor old Southwell and Marriott virtually no through balls at all, just windswept punts over their heads.  As Brian Clough said - If football is played in the air, God would have put grass in the sky !  Rant over, for the full week, I promise !

Very good idea, IMO...  Just watched my first podcast before the Wealdstone game.  Have to say I was impressed with SC’s delivery, and outlook.  And congrats  on the. Ron Exchange idea - very innovative, and deserves to succeed.  BUT - Social Distancing SO Important. - I’m sure we all agree on that !.....   COYL !.....  I think Alex Street should stay, and he’ll get back in sometime.
