Chester away
« on: September 01, 2022, 02:07:47 PM »
Yet another big test on the Road Saturday.

Will TW go with the team that started on Monday or the team that started the 2nd half.?

Then again can Tommy afford to not start with Barrett.  Nice problems to have.  Factor in maybe Scott back available and McFadden inching his way back into the squad.

Iíd take a draw.  So going with 1-1


What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

A draw at the very least.

Chester have only won one of their three games at home so far, and have a 2-4 deficit on goal difference (beating Brackley 2-0). Also suffering with a weakened squad due to injuries and suspensions.

Going for a 2-0 win (but will take a draw).

Getting more optimistic as the games go by. I dont think TW and the lads will want to travel back from Chester having being beaten or even drawn. I'm going for 0 - 3, to continue our hold on top place. Chester not the team they were a few years ago. Lynn are going to be on the up, especially after last Monday's result. TW will have them up for it, not to let it slip now. The more points we get in the bank now, the less the effect will be if we slip up against the stronger teams in the weeks to come.

Away games are all going to be hard and Chester will be no exception. It is still too early to look at league positions. Boston lost in the play off final last season, yet they currently sit bottom. A draw away from home is normally regarded as good.
Barrett certainly had an impact after coming on, so not an easy decision for TW to make as to his starting 11. Suspect though that Barrett will be on the bench, but probably come on earlier this time. Someone said that his goal was the best they had seen by a Lynn player. I remember Lynn v Wisbech in an FA Cup qualifying round. I think it was 1980, or 1981. Malcolm Lindsay had left Lynn and was playing for Wisbech, we went a goal down and from the restart, the ball was tapped to Neville Algar who lobbed the Wisbech keeper from the half way line to level. We ended up losing 2-1 and if my memory is correct, it was Lindsay who got their winner.

Prediction for Chester is CC 1-2 KL.

Going for an away win2.0 but would settle for a draw.  Lynn playing well but missing good opportunities in front of goal.  Don't think Barrett is fully fit yet so might come on 2nd half. Anyway good luck lads  :scarf:

Good that someone else remembers Nev's goal. Neville was the most naturally gifted local player I know of.   It was more like a 35 yard strike into the top corner, as I recall.   Nev's goal hardly got a mention after the match, as Malcolm's winner for Wisbech took the headlines.

Best for me was a Frank Wignall free kick back in the 70's ???  I was only young and stood directly in line with the kick. He was just in the opponents half quite near to the dugouts, , it looked like it was heading for the old tea bar then swerved and dipped.. I was agog !!!!

Can't see any reason for changing the starting system or XI from Peterborough unless Scott is available in which case I would revert to the XI that started the season, Fleming didn't do a lot wrong but think the side is stronger with Scott in it.  Stephens again looked good coming off the bench but can't see that a change in system to accommodate him makes us stronger but certainly warrants more minutes from the bench.  I am still not sure Barrett fits into the side and however good his goal was on Monday, I think we the team is better playing to the strengths of the squad rather than compromising to 'fit him in'

Was the change at half time during the PíBoro game enforced or tactical ?  With Stephenís replacing Fleming.  Iím guessing it was the later.  Winning the 2nd half 2-1.

Have to say Iíve been impressed with Fleming though Denton has that little bit of extra pace playing there when Scott was playing left wingback. Think you will be spot on Tony.  Decent surface this week will see us go with a 3/5 at the back.

Whoever we play against in the coming weeks against the better teams, Iíll lay odds that they will play their Barrett equivalent against us.  Successful teams are just that because they have better players, and, with Dillification being an exact science, good players almost always beat triers, or tactical formations.  Formations are great in Subbuteo, but on a real pitch, the players move, which messes up the formations that the pundits spend two hours talking about before a ball is kicked.  Barrett should start, because he has more chance than the others of taking us in at half-time in the lead, which is better than hoping we can claw back a deficit - a lot better, because we wonít always manage to do that.
