AL has clearly worked very hard since becoming our new manager. We are being treated to a brand of football never before seen at the Walks. Grown men (and boys) running around at break neck

speed, firstly booting the ball into the air, then running after it, trying to get it back again, when they're successful they boot it in the air again and chase it again. Repeat, repeat repeat, repeat for

an entire match. This brand of football does require players who will give 100% for 95 minutes behaving like headless chickens. Unfortunately there is no room for skilful players like Barrett and

Hughes in these teams, who may not run around huffing and puffing to impress the management duo but who will put their foot on the ball and play an occasional defence splitting pass for a team

mate to run on to and score, sometimes more than once in one match. Many supporters can't understand why our full time team are no fitter after ninety minutes than part timers. Darlington

didn't run around like a bunch of kids and had a skilful player to play the through ball and a striker who finished like Marriot used to do.

It's a dour brand of football and attendances will fall accordingly. By the way was anyone impressed with the two new chickens making their debut? I think we have better in the award winning

Academy, but they won't be considered as thy play good football on the floor.

 I guess no matter what happens on the pitch   we are stuck with AL, as where will the money come from to pay up his contract ?  Plus SC would have to hold his hands up to another poor appointment. 
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what it’s all about ?

Being a bit unfair on AL from day one all he has been allowed to sign is young loan players. His hands are tied until the Chairman can offload Barrett and Crowther not a good state for a club trying to avoid relegation. Having seen the post match interview wouldnt be sruprised if he walked.

Why on earth would he walk? On a nice little earner I would think? :dontknow:
Perhaps a lunatic was simply a minority of one.

Exactly. And of course would have the inside information about new money coming into the Club.
If I ever get outta here I've thought of giving it all away,
to a registered charity, as all I need is a pint a day, if I ever get outta here.

Well said, Foster cigar, and pleased to meet you.  Obviously a football lover.  Effort, workrate, chasing balls and sometimes cat being them is relegation fare.  The best team usually wins, and that means having the best players.  Hang on to Barrett, and find others who use the ball more than their lungs….  COYL…,!
