General Discussion / Re: Saturday’s Trophy game now on at Alfreton

SC- there is a connection between how good you are, and how many points you accrue !  I think we did better against the league leaders because we picked a team that could play in both halves of the pitch, therefore simultaneously giving us more chance of making chances and winning, than them doing the same thing !  Sad about losing Loza, and worried about not playing King and Kelly.....

Great pity.  Don’t think he was in competition with Power, as he was better inside than on the wing. Space for both.  He became one of the needed nipsters, and will improve Woking.  Again, real pity.  I believe we have slightly too much competition for places.  Where are King and Kelly, for example ?  Two players who are definitely the level required.  King looked Portsmouth level when he came on...

We have less magumba than all the other teams.  Our choice is whether to compete in this league, or not !?!

If we pick a versatile selection, TonyM, we can make THEM find they are up against it.  If we play a defensive line-up, we will be under the cosh, IMHO.  Surprised Notts Country aren’t higher, as they looked very good in the snatches I’ve seen, particularly the attack and their offensive midfield.  We have to make then defend, not attack so often.....

All about opinions, of course, but 3 CHs, a GK, 2 FBs, and 2 defensive midfielders , though understandable, gave us every chance of spending most games in and around our own penalty area. (IMHO! !  Found a good shape now -the next 6 games could be fun !

Great performance, and result.  Much more balanced and versatile selection (IMHO) ensured we had a chance of being up their end a lot more, if you’ll pardon the expression, thus giving us much less defending (and failing) to do.  In the end, to have lost would have been a travesty.  Power was immense, but all played very well indeed.  We need fear no team in this league if we stick with that shape of team.  And King, Kelly, and Carey won’t lessen our performance.  Good thinking from the management duo, and great support, as always, from Stephen.  Notts County players may have double-stuffing over the Xmas period !......

Hi Mall - The Dilly line-up only uses the numbers (451, 442, 433, etc..) for the line-up at the start. They have to stand somewhere.  After that, they move, which messes the numbers up straightaway.  So the plan is most behind the ball when the opponents have it, then, when we get it, move forward in ways that aim to have a man free for the next pass.  Seriously, we’ll have to be ruddy mobile on Saturday, but you never know.  I might play yet, but I won’t charge....Happy Xmas to everyone on here, particularly KES, WLM, Tony M, B&G, and yourself, ie those who have benefited most from my tuition......Sorry I haven’t offended everyone, I’ll get round to it asap.....
Oh, The Dilly team for Torquay...(not knowing the injury news)....  Mair:  Jones/Barrows, Smith, McFadden, Brown;  Carey, King, Loza/Kelly/Richards. Power;  Marriott, Southwell.  If we can sneak more than eleven, let’s go for it....

True story - Peter Morris came up to me in Tamworth, and said “Should I play Gary Setchell at Centre- Forward ?  I rue the fact I laughed and said that it was up to him !  I should’ve done a Mourinho and made out he needed me more than I needed him !  I might have been at Barcelona by now ! (Instead of a forum nutter - this isn’t the only one !)

TonyM - Happy Xmas !  For the record, I don’t have a formation, or rather, not just one.  Formations only work on a Subbuteo board, for me, because in real life, players move !  And they move at a second’s notice, with a marker having no chance to keep up.  I certainly don’t have a 2-2-6 formation.  I have a 10-1 formation when the opponents are attacking in numbers, less when they’re coming at us with less.  When we have the ball our “formations” should be ever  changing, to try to outnumber them in triangles, or whatever.  Home or Away.  Teams with a GK, 3 CHs, 2 FBs, and 2 defensive MFs only have 3 players to try pin them back.  Tonight’s result, IMHO, had very little chance of scoring more than the enemy !  I have decided to charge £20 for that one ......

Very true KES - they are the two problems... money/full time fitness, better stadium, but also geography.  It’s down to us to keep turning up in large numbers to ensure that we eventually compete with the better teams.  I think we can do it.

I don’t think it was just the water logging.  I suspect they didn’t want our team of Centre-halves, full backs, defensive  “holding” midfielders, and goalkeeper to mess their penalty areas up for the rest of the season !
