General Discussion / Re: The problem football clubs are now facing.
« on: March 17, 2020, 03:50:49 PM »
We ALL want the club to survive, and eventually thrive.  I certainly hope the Chairman and sponsors are able to stay on board without too much financial injury.  However, the phrase “ in the scheme of things” has never been more prevalent.  Virtually all of us have far more to consider, worry about, and tackle than the future of ANY sporting venture for the foreseeable future.  We shall turn our attentions to sport when the new world, in sport and out, is finally established.  I have a feeling that world will be vastly different to that of our current concerns like football and Brexit....

Great to see racist bullies  removed.  I enjoy watching the close-ups on the crowd in “Premier” league matches.  You see some crackin’ neanderthals on a regular basis.  Funnier than “Only Fools”, when it’s a dull game !

The attendance was impressive, but Stan’s congratulations to those who “ignored the scaremongering” was badly misinformed, and unkind to those who didn’t go, either to protect themselves or to help stop the spread to others.  They didn’t fall for the scaremongering, as Stan rather insultingly put it.  Don’t forget Stan, we have all been warned that there are probably many people who have the virus but not yet the symptoms, so none of us know who to avoid.  Hard luck KL as it sounds like things didn’t go our way despite an improved performance......

People aren’t “wallowing” in doom and gloom.  They are being sensible and realistic.  We all want the club to win this league, and for SC to keep his financial position above water, but older supporters and those with underlying health issues really must put their safety above their entertainment needs.  So far we have no cases in the county, so I hope for a good crowd and a great result.

Stan’s response to my last post has baffled me further.  Stan, the first half of your response looked rational, if debatable on your assessment of other poster’s motivations.  So, up to half-way I understood you, albeit with areas of disagreement.  However, your second paragraph is the point at which my gob became smacked, because you appear to be asking me, (“ask yourself”), and by inference, others, to put health issues below the well-being of the club.  In view of the seriousness of the global, (including “Norfolk”), situation, that aspect of your post appears to me to be ludicrous.  Nothing personal here, but surely priorities should be prioritised ?!

We’ve all got opinions about this, at least those who know what’s going on.  My turn to spout an opinion.  BLOODY RIDICULOUS DECISION BY THE LEAGUE. Can’t agree with Stan’s attitude at all.  But if the game goes ahead, I hope the players don’t make the amazing mistake I’ve seen in top-class matches, with players rightly observing the no handshake before the game instruction, but then hand-shaking, cuddling, and virtually snogging each other when a goal is scored or the game ends !!  Unbelievable, and I’ve not heard a single manager or media person mention this once !.......

A word to all players, all levels.  In the current environment, not shaking hands before a match is a good idea, and being well observed all over the country.  BUT - it’s a pointless exercise if all sorts of kissing and cuddling occurs on a goal being scored or at the end of a match with team-mates and opponents alike.  That, it appears to THE FONT, is also taking place all over the country, every game I’ve seen.....Don’t get that, at all....

KES, or anyone interested in my world-renowned advice  - if we rely on Gash to be the supplier of chances to our other strikers, we won’t win many games.  That isn’t an insult to MG, but a general observation about any team using the old-fashioned method of a long high punt to a Big Man “up top”, with the other strikers picking up what “comes off him”.  Few teams employing that method are in the top half of league tables.  Neither, IMO, is at advantageous to hit “the Big Man”  to “bring others into play”, because if they’re not already “in play”, they shouldn’t be on the pitch !  Fluid group and individual (but supported) movements unlock all defences.  Again this week, RB Leipzig did it superbly - no tactics, just quick slippery players in every position going forward, and numbers back to defend.  KL are equipped to do this, have done all season, and can surely do it again from now on...

General Discussion / Re: Bradford PA at home
« on: March 11, 2020, 01:01:15 PM »
I didn’t see the game, but can imagine that TonyM is right in not thinking BPA weren’t over-physical.  I haven’t yet seen a side relying on physicality in this league, and if we prepare  and select to compete with it, we would be barking up the wrong tree.  There are lots of cliches in football that I believe are just latest bandwagonners.
“Strength” is often said by big-name pundits when the playback regularly shows no contact at all !  “winning a foul” is another.  I don’t believe any player ever does that...  “Here you are, take a kick at my leg.  It might ruin my career but it’ll be worth it for a free kick to my team”. Don’t think so !  There’s just a few pointers to take our minds off the worst result of the season.  Roll on Saturday !  Plenty more pointers, if wanted !!!

Didn’t see the game so can’t really comment, but going to anyway !  We all have our own convictions, including IC.  Mine is that attack is the best form of defence, because while it’s up their end, it isn’t up ours - (yes, still room for humour !). But that only works if we flood back en masse when we lose the ball, so it’s hard work.  On paper, last night’s team had efficiency and solidity written all over it, but lacked enough “slipperiness” to unlock a packed and determined defence.  Not having seen the game, I can’t tell if that (what I call) slipperiness was what was lacking, so I’ll shut up and go get some breakfast !.....  But, look, every team hits a bad patch, even York and KL !  Start again on Saturday - York have put their “Hereford” behind them....

I liked Pauli’s idea on this one - on the ground and Southwell to start, so MG for a rest....  Loughbro’s team looks good, , but I never like 3 CHs.  However, at home we have the team to win using any selection, unless we’re all under-estimating Bradford - they must be decent to beat Chester, albeit at home.  Home and awayy I always want an attacking selection because a top-heavydefensive line-up lets the opponents attack more.  We need to get up their end more, if you’ll pardon the expression ! ......

Yes... mustn’t forget Fox    Not many could have come in and make us not regret the loss of laser season’s full-backs.  I actually think that, despite the common wish toincrease squad size and consequent options, we may have slightly too many players.  We don’t want anyone feeling frustration at not getting enough chances....

I agree with Mr. Mallard’s choice of who to rest, and all in this squad should be aware they will again “resume duty” in no time at all.  Southwell needs a start, and has had some outstanding performances at this level.  Would also like to see Carey and Kelly back, and given some responsibility in the Bradford game.  Certainly agree with the belief that Bradford won’t be easy, as demonstrated by their victory over Chester, but I’m not tech-savvy enough to be able to look back to see who posted it !  I shall advise IC on the team selection for the game later in the week.......

Yes, KES, the football chat is certainly more enjoyable, and obviously we are as one with hopes of the team winning this league.  Not only are we back to winning ways with yesterday’s excellent result, but in the recent less successful period many of our main rivals often did us a real favour with their own results !  It may well still prove tricky, but there can’t be another club, at any level, in a better position than KLTFC - apart from Liverpool !........
