General Discussion / Re: home vs Yeovil (3rd Oct)
« on: September 29, 2020, 06:14:56 PM »
TonyM, Southwell has been excellent at this level.  Take a peek at YouTube !  I don’t think Jarvis will nowadays be quick enough at this level, but would be a good call to come on and help if we’re hanging on and under pressure.    So, I shall inform IC to pick this team vs Yeovil......  Street/Mair;  Burrows, McAuley, Smith, Brown;  Clunan, Richards, Kelly;  King; Power, Southwell.    I don’t know the fitness levels of Clunan and Marriott, so Carey, Marriott and Loza  subs - taking a punt on Clunan.

We all hope our club, and also all our opponents, survive, plus smaller clubs in this area.  I haven’t concentrated on the ins and outs to the same extent as others on here, because I have the cynical belief that all football is non-viable at present.  However, I wish SC and all at official and volunteer levels at the club every ounce of good fortune in the coming season.  AND, I’d like to say how informed and interesting every one of the forum contributors are, on here,.  Now, where’s that third glass of vino ??......

KES - you’ve proved it’s all about opinions. - I thought Smith had really good game !!  I think he will be amongst the best CHs in this level.  Cool and assured on the ball, as well.   Each to his own !

Couldn’t blame Dale Southwell, Power , or Loma, because the midfield gave them nothing all afternoon.  I thought a Clunan played very well, but Jarvis failed to supply to the 3 mentioned.  King and Kelly would.  Not sure about Loma, but I feel sure Power and Southwell will do well when the ball slides through properly, - same for AM and MG, of course.

I’m in the middle on this, because I believe there is very good reason to respect both Keith and SC with what they have given the club.  I feel sure both would be all in favour of developing local players.  However, I am not a believer in the benefits of academies at our level.  For me, too much is made, at all levels, of players having much to “learn” about the game.  That’s a general point, but another difficulty, IMO, is that our area isn’t big enough to produce many players capable at playing at any pro-level, and those that are will most likely go to clubs higher up the leagues.  I’m also not at all sure that academies can add to normal education either.  Perhaps I’m wrong about both aspects, but when managers like Mourinho get rid of players like Salah, De Bruyne, and Cuadrado, I feel they need to “learn” about the game as well !

I suspect people who have bought season tickets won’t be perturbed at having to pay a fiver foe access to streaming.  On the fixtures front, it must be a concern that Solihull, one of our early opponents, are experiencing Covid spread enough to be high up the Government’s watch-list.

I’m with KES on this one.  Haven’t disagreed with a word, so far.  But unfortunately, nationwide, we have far too many people who put “what they want” at the top of their agenda.  We absolutely must put the safety of all ahead of the natural desire to be entertained.  And no, that is not “pessimism”, nor “doom and gloom”, it is realism.  I want to be back at the Walks as much as anyone, but none of us would be pleased with ourselves if we found ourselves standing before a kick-off in respect of someone we knew, and who was  probably a friend of many.

Good luck, MG, and take your time.  You’ll be back soon enough.  I’m a little concerned about the absence of news on Simon Power.  Is there any ?  I believe he is a very important cog in the wheel....

Good luck to Heacham.  But be careful.  There  is a killer virus about.  Too many people think that’s all gone !

I agree with Badger..  I’d pay £15 per livestream.  It would be good if we hyped it enough to get 1500 to 2,000 paying what they can, to help us be in a healthy state when we’re able to go back in.  How about a terrific “crowd” for the Yeovil game ?......

Pleased to see Southwell getting off the mark.  I know I’m repeating myself, but he does look a lively and clever player on YouTube at this level, and a great eye for goal.  Where is Simon Power at the moment -have I missed any news about him ?  Power, Southwell, King, Kelly !!  Mouthwatering possibilities !.....

BTW, I was surprised and delighted at AS’s distribution against NC, most impressive, very Barca, (when they were unbeatable !).  Made some good saves too, mainly through good positioning.

Pity about AM and MG.  Time of the year to “Name your team” for “Lockdown Fun” !!!  I go for speed over short distances as being an important quality, because long distance pace can be nullified if opponents are all behind the ball.  So I don’t think MG and Jarv will feel as irreplaceable as in the past.  Still have parts to play, on occasions.  My team for the opening game, Home or Away... Street; Barrows McCauley, Smith, Brown; Clunan/Richards, Henderson, Kelly, Power; King, Southwell. Subs Mair, Jones, Carey, Loza, Richards/Clunan.  League prediction 9th.   Over to IC, but I’m here for advice should he need it...

I watched the game on livestream, and thought KLFC did quite well, though I don’t know how strong was the NC selection.  I think Southwell will do well.  He’s had some great moments at this level in the past.  King and Kelly looked class.  The passing was good, looked like the passing game has really been stressed.  All positions look competitive within the squad, but about 4 could be on the team sheet without challenge at the moment, for me.  Kelly, King, Power, Marriott. Every other position looks so close..  Apols for rabbiting, but I don’t come on very often, so it all goes in one !

Can’t see Sam K and Hendo competing for a place,, because they are not the same type.  One is speed over short distances - Very handy quality, and the other is more of a play-maker - again an important ingredient.  They could both be in, OR different players who have those qualities - say Richards and Power ?   Good squad though- hard job to pick a team.  The large squad needed for the quick turnOver of games, and more subs, but too many for normal times, if they ever return !
