    Leatherhead v Enfield Town

    Your earlier observations on "systems", MB, are well made. But what you say lies at the point of my argument. That is we do not have many players competent enough to operate the "one up front" against all teams. Especially those who have players who play it better. Hence we have to have to be ready with an alternative plan to combat their threat. I believe in chess it's called a "Gambit". Unfortunately AL has limited himself in making changes by opting for a smaller playing squad. The reason for which I understand within the context of our club. But where I think he has gone wrong is in recruiting too many like for like players. Presumably this is because he believes they will fit into his desired method of play. But in doing so it also curtails him instigating any change. It may sound strange coming from me but I hope he proves me wrong since his decision has become to us a "fait accompli".

    The trouble is Albany that we are getting used to being at least in the play-offs. You should try it sometime.

    Leatherhead v Enfield Town

    As you say WR we don't seem to have a leader. Nor do we have a play maker. Oh for a return of Billy Crook or a similar player. The team drastically needs a focal point who can bring the team together. At the moment we have several talented players many of whom appear to do their own thing. If one can't be found then it's up to the coaching staff to come up with a system which creates a focal point from within. Knowing how difficult it must be for our two younger coaches to introduce new methods in the current regime, I would say to them, if you have any ideas to introduce change then now is the time to show their prowess.

    Andy, the other well used phrase which I await being used is "we all must get behind the team". Actually I must admit that it has some merit at this time, because if all the supporters got behind the team, preferable between our defence and our goal, we may stem the tide of goals against us until a new strategy is thought up. ( I suppose that is a bit cruel) only joking. On a more serious note I fear that the team might start to lose confidence and implode. They certainly need encouragement by "someone" to get them back to how they were playing at the beginning of the season. Regarding WR's comments, I realise that it may be pure conjecture on his behalf, but if it were true then both management and players should sort it out their differences quickly. Otherwise we will be right up the creek.!! I do hope,however, that our recent disappointments aren't making us look for somethings that are not there.

    On Bostic League live scores says our goal was deleted and Hope was not a substitute. All very confusing, but hardly makes any difference. OldTowner may have a point in his earlier post, so if someone doesn't think of a way to stop the rot we will soon slide down. Surely one of our three coaches must have some idea what to try in order to turn it around. Problem is will the main man take any notice.I accept that injuries and dismissals don't help but where is the organisation.

    Does anyone know the actual score??? Seems to a be a conflict as to whether we got a consolation goal and who got it. Oh I see that we did get one. But it makes little difference as I make it 14 against our 4 in 4 games. I you all sure with have nothing to worry about and that we are in safe hands?????

    Enfield Town v Worthing

    I agree that both Barney and FJ's have both posted very positive points of view. Especially fitness etc and the unforeseen events of last night regarding injuries. But the basis of my continued argument is AL's continued adherence to starting every game the same way and then not seeing the necessary need to make changes when things go wrong. His whole philosophy appears to set out not to lose rather than going for a win. That's why I said 3 wins out of 5 are better than a 1 win and 4 draws. From my perspective the above quote seems to bear this out as well as Steph's brilliant quote by Enstein.

    I agree that both Barney and FJ's have both posted very positive points of view. Especially fitness etc and the unforeseen events of last night regarding injuries. But the basis of my argument is AL's rigid adherence to starting every game the same and that he appears to accept the need to change anything as the game unfolds. That is other then when forced to, such as last night. From the above quote nothing seems to have changed.

    Steph, a very astute and erudite reference, re Einstein. Wish I had thought of it. The brevity of it sums up our predicament precisely.

    Enfield Town v Worthing

    I said my piece Theo and I feel so disillusioned I have nothing more to say. I stand by my conviction and if the majority of supporters see things otherwise so be it. Thanks for your comments Cman, unfortunately I am not surprised with the state of affairs as last year I made it clear what may happen when AL was appointed. I was vilified then so whats new.

    Stone a crows... Sick as a parrot,.... Play down the lines,..... All get behind the Boys!!!!!... No I haven't gone mad just thought I'd get a few cliches of my chest. After all it I am hear from some the use of them is the only way to get a team motivated. Also that all my twaddle about set-up, match planning and the correct balance of a team for each match has nothing to do with the outcome. Just throw in a few more cliches and it will make everything come right. Yes I'm angry because I hate to see what is potentially a good side made to become average by one persons rigid intransigence. A few more like this and another season will be wasted along with an increased Budget. NO further comment, other than yet another apposite cliche, "Non so blind as those who wish not to see!!!!"

    I don't think I can add any more other than to say that we can only wait to for to nights outcome. Tomorrow we will either feel totally elated or as miserable as sin and we will start all over again. That is what football does to you whether you play or watch. Even Mourinho feels it too although possibly his £15m+ pa helps him to face the day. All I can do if, heaven forbid it is the latter, is to be accused of up setting the wife!!!!!! and to feel sorry for LH's long round trip. But then I don't really want to up set my wife. So I will start praying for a "WIN".

    FA Trophy 10th November

    I accept what you say Djw. Having been a supporter, excluding my own playing career and Nat Service, for 70 years I feel a little affronted at times when my posts are deemed by some as disloyal. I certainly don't attend games with the object to find fault. I also agree that it demeans the forum to entered into personal bickering. I also think like you that we have probably the most talented squad since the ETFC was founded (No offence to players of the past.) and I too enjoy watching them. But rightly or wrongly I still believe they could be even better if encouraged to play to their full potential. But as I said a few days ago if we get into the play offs and hopefully beyond then I will be the first to admit I got it wrong and will be happy to do so. Lets all hope we can pull it off tomorrow I am sure we have the capability do do so.

    FA Trophy 10th November

    I take on board what you say Father Jack and I do try to be civil on all occasions. But I have to reply to LH on one or two ascertains he has raised about me which I feel are in need of a reply.... which I hope you agree fall within the rules. I am sorry LH that my previous post made you so angry. It was not my intention. However, I did find your reference about the "Old Club" and other assumption about me slightly baffling. If you meant I have no knowledge of Enfield FC then you are very mistaken. I go back as far as 1947. If you beat that then I hold up my hat to you. Not only was I a supporter, and being as discreet as I can so as not to break client confidentiality, on several occasions I was engaged professionally preparing financial data relating to the application to enter the football league in 1986 and pre the Lozarou purchase in the 90s. So I have a little knowledge as to how the Club was operated. The way you write suggests you held some position at the club at that time. I certainly didn't but I was there and if you knew the principal characters involved you would understand that not everyone was privy to all matters, especially those which ran in conjunction with their private affairs. Finally, I have admitted on several occasions that my opinions may be in a minority but that is what discussion forums are about. May I now wish you avery good evening and safe journey tomorrow.

    I again agree totally agree with you Theo. If I may I would like to add to your comments in answer to LHampton. Firstly it's to say, please read what is written. Very few comments are made against the players of the team but rather than how they are used. Secondly to remind him that we are no longer a one owner club but a club owned by it's subscribed members. That being so all members reserve the right to verse opinions on all aspects of the Club, so long as they are not abusive and offensive. Our case is that we feel that the playing management are not making the most of our main asset, a strongly vitalised Team. Whether our representatives, the Board, takes any notice of our views and or wish pursue them is another matter. That may sound a bit strident to some but you can't have it both ways. That is the difference between the former and the current governance of the club. Finally, because we don't indulge in the use of old repeated cliches does not mean we don't care about the welfare of the club.
