New Season
« on: August 02, 2023, 11:05:34 AM »
Just watched the Corby highlights, and am giving it the benefit of the doubt!  I appreciate ours was a scratch selection, but have to say Corby had the better players.  But the good news, actually great, imho…. The “Protect the Game” initiative.  I never thought the football community, in its entirety, would ever allow their “loyalty” to be challenged by such reality as this excellent and long overdue exercise.  These days even a disputed throw-in can induce manic anger amongst players, coaches, and spectators.  On the field, lovers of the game are sick of hearing so-called experts and pundits talk about “good fouls” and “good at committing little fouls all over the pitch to break the opponents’ play up.  I hope this takes off in a big way to improve the spectacle of “the beautiful game”.

Managers/Coaches expect players to ‘take one for the team’.   The pressure on these Coaches is immense with sackings taking place at the drop of a hand.  Fans due their fair share of putting pressure on Boards and Managers.   Only one team can win the Premiership and three teams WILL be relegated.  Everything comes back down to one word.

MONEY.
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what it’s all about ?
