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….

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 !!

Last rant !  Meant to add that no Dilly team yet selectable, until new players known, but Gyasi must be in the team, imho.  Rowley and him would be a handful.  Jury out on Gold, at the moment….

OK - friendly disagreement on Marriott…. But, at any level, if the team were good enough to get in the penalty area (they weren’t when he was last here), AM only needed the ball at his feet to sidestep a defender in less than a yard, and slot it home.  Not fair to just look at his score record, if his team didn’t create chances.  Disagreements don’t matter, because we all have the same ambitions for the club…..well, most of us do !…..

Thanks KES, and I can hear that claxon !!!  It’s not the only aspect of the game I believe is necessary, or that I enjoy, but I believe we, and only us, put too much emphasis on a “ physical” side of the game that is wildly exaggerated.  If it were real, you’d see players getting up off the deck and congratulating the lunk on his physical effort which clobbered him, and reduced his ability in the game.  You don’t though - the “ recipient” is always angry, and rightly so.  Some of the foreign ones look dumbfounded that it’s allowed !

Sorry to be “ off kilter” again, but it sounds to me like we need a replacement skill-man for Cameron King, rather than another defensive holding player who can “pick a pass”.  I just hope we’ve not seen the last of CK, though I suspect we have….

Mallard, or anyone else - I’m not educating anyone.  We all have opinions on the game, and I’m just stating mine.  Perhaps I shouldn’t have put that “Mall showed he doesn’t understand “ nipsters or nipsteirism” - what I meant was he perhaps doesn’t understand “what I mean” by nipster.  That’s different, and I apologise if my wording offended anyone..  No one’s opinion is more correct than anyone else’s.  In an era in which we constantly hear about Strength, Winning a foul, Good fouls, some midfielders having the job of prowling about and breaking up play by fouling, etc….  I just believe it’s all nonsense.  Even Souness called them out for it, saying it would “ be the end of the game” !!  Good players don’t get bowled over, because the lunk is often tackling or wrestling thin air ! (IMHO).  On YT, there’s a great commentary on the 1974 Bremner/Keegan game.  It summed it up a treat , for me …..
