General Discussion / Re: King's Lynn v Boreham Wood - Tuesday 13th
« on: October 13, 2020, 01:23:34 PM »
I’ve found the streaming to be good.  Haven’t used a code though - just pay up in the 10 mins before kick-off, then you’re straight in....        .....   And after last week, I think we need a CH, plus (essential) two nippy eels like Archer.  They win the matches, IMO.  Hope tonight that the midfield feed Southwell and Marriott - Dayle to run on to, and/or Adam, to feet.  Sailing over their heads gives them no chance...  Is Simon Power back ?
Dilly’s team vs Boreham Wood.....  Street; Jones,Barrows,McCauley/Smith, Brown; Richards; Carey,King, Kelly,Power; Southwell.  Subs Mair, McCauley/Smith, Clunan, Marriott, Barker/Hawkins...... (IMHO !!)

I agree we’re not quick enough in central defence.  I don’t think physicality in that area is lacking, because that can result in penalties !  From the games I’ve seen, the top teams have some quick off the mark tricky players that are the difference.  Notts County have Roberts, Reeves, Wootton, and the winger who scored today, (don‘t have his name to hand).  Wootton is big, but has clever feet. Solihull have Archer, who ran us ragged the whole game.  Strong defenders can’t stop that type.  Nine men back for a forest of legs, IMO !  We only had individual defenders to stop Archer and others.  He should have had 6 to beat, not 1 or 2.  Where was Jarvis playing ?  Opponents are mostly young, fit, and quick, and slippery.  We need the same, then put THEM on the defensive for periods. Our strikers are not being supplied with the ball !

Thanks B & G...  Do you know where Alfie Payne and Nathan Fox are ?

At no time did Southwell get a through all or Marriott get one to feet.  They spent all game watching the ball fly high over their shoulders. So the midfield were to blame today.  Also our 2CHs were slow.  Same with Jarvis.  We must have been expecting a physical exam, but their strength was in a good passing game, plus some slippery skill men who ran us ragged.  Archer, in particular.  They are a good side in a smart stadium, to be fair., and played good football throughout. I thought Smith looked favourite for that ball against Archer, but he seemed to back off to get a “ position” to defend a cross.  Anyway, we’ll be back, but we must pick the players who’ll pin the opponents back....And where was Power ?  Rant over !!!  Apols for boring you on a Sat night.  Time for a beer !

Dilly’s team vs Solihull....  Street/Mair;  Jones, McAuley, Smith, Brown;  Barrows;  Clunan, Richards, King, Power;  Southwell.  Subs, Kelly, Carey, Marriott, Street/Mair, Jarvis.  Hate not picking Kelly, Carey, Marriott, but can’t change yet.  When we do, we’ll lose nothing, and gain plenty ! No offence to Jarvis fans, but think Barrows perfect for adding to defence and augmenting attack.  What a bench though  - bring all 3 on at once when needed !

General Discussion / So far, so good.

Fine start, but I see IC’s point about mistakes.  Seen highlights of most teams now, and haven’t come across any frighteners yet !  BUT, Notts County have 3 excellent attacking players who I’m sure IC will be have a big think about over his Xmas Pud !  Reeves is a tenacious Billy Bremner type with a great shot, Wootton is a tall CF who is great in the air, but also has clever feet on the floor, and Roberts is a slippery match-winner of real skill.  But we have the talent to spoil their appetite for their Xmas Pud as well.....

Attractive stadium.  They don’t look as good as Notts County did on TV this week !  We have our usual decent chance, IMO....

Blue - You’re right about the performances/results so far, and that we should all be upbeat because of them.  But sponsorships and the image of the ground (including the flag) are very important too, because they add to the professionalism.  That professionalism is a necessity if the club is to maintain the standard we’re now at...

You’re right, Mallard....  Missed off the other sub.  It’s Jarvis. If we need to hang on, or Hawkins if we need a goal.  Bit annoyed with myself for putting Kelly and Carey on the bench, because last season they were my first two names on the sheet.  But I try to pick horses for courses.  Those two will play more than most, I think, but tonight I want Barrows adding to defence, and augmenting attack.  What a good squad we have, but, no doubt, so do all the others ,

This squad is so “equal” that anyone not in for a particular game should feel confident that is a selection on a game to game basis only.   So, tonight’s team vs Maidenhead...  Street/Mair:   Jones,McAuley,Smith,Brown:   Barrows:   Clunan,Richards,King,Power:  Southwell.  Subs Carey, Kelly, Marriott, Street/Mair.  If subs neede, perhaps put all 3 on at once......

Excellent performance.  We were quicker to the ball, and loose ones, all over the pitch for most of the game.  They had 20 mins dominance at start of 2nd half, but no more.  Everyone played so well.  I thought King looked the best player on the pitch - surprised he came off, but prob a fitness thing.  Still think Kelly will be good at this level, and Carey looked great.  Street 7;  Jones 8, McAuley 7, Smith 7, Brown 8;  Jarvis 6, Richards 6, Kelly 6;  King 8, Power 7, Southwell 6.  Subs Carey 8*, Marriott 8.....   We can do very well in this league.  Just need some stands and more terrace behind the goals, and another terrace where ther used to be between MIn Stand and Hospital End corner flag !,

Yes A47Linnet - I remember that team as well......  Sanchez, Lumley, etc.  Great tackler, Sanchez, and I liked Bobby Lumley’s clever turns etc..  Do you remember Verdi Godwin ? - and what team mates were his ?

Sad news.  I had no connection, but I remember him in a good side.  Rose-coloured spectacles tell me the team was better in those days, but prob not true.  However, in case these names mean something good for his daughter - and I don’t think I’ve muddled up eras, I recall this team, and the waft of my loved(at the time) Embassy Filters in the night air,( before I discovered they were poison!),   Walls; Proverbs, Baker; Williamson, Bone, Wright; Bacon, Edwards, Watkin or Donovan, King, Partridge....
