Quoted from HertsGTFC


I think we have a set of players who’s band with has been maxed out by things being too complicated, “continental”, technical, clever and structured.

Too many A licences and not enough licence to just go out and effing play football




Maybe asking too much of them. I think less gifted players with the right mentality could deliver more. I get the horses for course thing, but too often we see players who don't know what to do and it's not exactly rocket science.

e.g. there's a team mate with two players on him, what do you do? (a) Pass it to him, (b) to someone else or (c) move with the ball? Too often they choose (a).
Or you have the ball to one side of central midfield in your own half and there is a team mate across the park and an opposing forward approaching midway between you. Do you (a) tap it to your team mate, (b) pass it back or (c) look to knock it up the park/out wide? Pick mostly (a)s and you get a contract at GTFC.

It doesn't matter whether you're a left back playing in the hole, or a goalkeeper on the wing, all players should have a bit of basic nous.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

What struck me was our defenders just launching it as far as possible upfield. If they did attempt to pass it they gave it to a Newport player.

Just like kick and rush in the school playground.

There's something seriously wrong with the current squad of players if that is all they can do.

Looks like Jolly and Limbrick were tarred with the same brush

Well if you haven’t won in 8 games and look like a relegation team  with no clue or hope am guessing it is the tactics and formation


Or the players underperforming.

Both probably. But I've seen shapeless teams (e.g. under Hurst in the Conference) beat other teams simply because we had better players. We played some excrement football at times but often Disley, or Podge, or Bogle got us the points.

Confidence and morale is shot, that's the main issue. mammary-arsing about with formations hasn't helped and probably caused the confidence drop to a degree.

I am not sure why Kingston Mariner got so many dislikes.  The players have to step up to.  You can't blame it all on tactics. I am in a new school and it's being managed badly with some awful decision making.  All the teachers are pretty peed off but we go into every day and strive to plan the best lesson possible.   They should stop sulking and pull their socks up.

Sack the headmaster and replace him with the assistant headmaster who has the same notebook

Those UEFA coaching licences are really good aren’t they?

How the hell can a team that not long ago was right up at the top end of the league just turn in too relagation fodder. There has to be a reason , they are all pro footballers . oh hang on. does pro just mean they are paid for it full time , not that they are good at it ? mind you the whole club is no good top to bottom

This is the only decent post in this thread, and probably the only one that hits the nail on the head!
