Ok so I have come outa retirement for this post I like to see the ball played on the ground but clubs have to be able to mix it up especially in this league IF Camberley have the same style as las

Duncs, you've hit the nail on the head, your quote about the CCL being a very good league with limited travel seems what most clubs with a tight budget needs. I for one would not like going to level 4

Good luck Hartley!   http://www.gethampshire.co.uk/sport/football/news/no-fear-insists-hartley-wintney-10211799

Anyone wanna take a guess at how camberley scored their last minute winner against Knaphill today.???

How about this, the keeper punted the goal kick quite high, a freak gust of wind brought the ball back goal wards.

Looking like it was going over the bar when for some reason the ball punctured, it dropped like a stone on the line. Rapid deflation had shrunk the ball and when the ref who was first on the scene saw that the now very small ball was over the line he awarded a goal.

 

I hear you say never, it's a good story

Massive punt upfield seems to be the common theme for some reason... I'll continue that and suggest the keeper scored direct from his kick from hands.

A drop kick from his hands seems more plorsable,.

 

 

 

it's only a tale.

 

 

In reality, was it was a tap in from the home keeper, making it an O.G.

Loving the answers fellas and here is the correct answer.  With a minute to go we won a free kick in the Knaphill half.  We loaded the box, put the ball in there, won the first header, the ball bounced about 8 yards out and our player headed in the winner :)

 

I look forward to watching the CCL team this season with a minute to go and they need to win playing a free kick short and trying to weave some pretty patterns to get the goal :)

 

Also just a quick note that I reckon Knaphills keeper passed the ball to our keeper more times than any of our players yesterday :)

No problem with teams lumping it into the mixer with five minutes to go.

Camberley do it with 90 minutes to go.

effective with their personnel but terrible for their fans watch. Unless of course they all still think it's 1978

Didn't expect anything else from Krooner.

Biggest rose tinted glasses EVER.

 

And yes, a big punt into the box from a few kick.

 

That's what they did the whole game so no surprise on the 100th punt into the box they scored. Play percentages!!!

It's just an ugly ugly way to play football. Camberley barely passed the ball to each other and constantly missed out their midfield. Yes winning is the important part but I couldn't play for, manage or coach that style of football. And if their supporters were honest, they would surely prefer to see good football, not hoof it at every opportunity.

2nd half we played some really nice football and dominated the possession. Better finishing and we certainly would have come away with points. Which is why the sucker punch in the dying minutes hurt even more.

Cb Hounslow 1 Ash Utd 0

 

Took on the league leaders & within 5mins was a goal down to some poor marking inside our own penalty area. Cb dominated the play but rarely troubled the ash keeper & on the odd break Ash did manage to hit the post twice. The second half was much the same as cb dominated but just couldn't kill ash off mainly due to some bad finishing which always kept ash in the game but rarely looked like we would score.

 

 

Not much else to say which hasn't been said already about ash, so no point going on. However did enjoy watching the planes take off throughout the game

Hey Johnno, you seemed to have forgotten Camberley's 1St goal. Pretty sure they passed it to each other then with a good move down the right hand side, over lap from the right back who went passed your left back provided a lovely cross that the striker headed in at the back post. Just saying!

Didn't forget it. Simple header to clear a punt up field was messed up of which camberley took full advantage. Yes an overlapping run and decent cross with a good 'headed' finish ar the back post.

 

Started with a huge punt up field though.

The biggest shame here is that some of those camberley players are actually good enough to play good football and show glimpses of real quality dribbling, passing etc.

Yes they can and that is why they are where they are in the league year in year out because they are capable of mixing up the way they play. To be honest yesterday was not a great performance and some credit to Knaphill for that but they still won, there lies the difference!

Sorry Jonno 2nd most rose tinted glasses ever.  Did I describe the goal incorrectly ?  Did I say we deserved to win ?  Did I say we played well and did I disagree with anything you said about us.  So interestingly not sure how I got accused of Rose Tinted glasses.

 

Now do feel free to mention how many times your keeper threw the ball out to your players compared to how many times his kicks sailed harmlessly through to our keeper ?

 

And to say you deserved to win is hilarious :)  Think you may have the biggest rose tinted glasses ever.

Your rose tinted glasses Krooner have been on forever, not just this one game.

 

Our keeper threw the ball out more times than Bradders did but I don't disagree with his kicking. It was long and ineffective. The plan was not to bombard you with punts though.

Whereas our keeper has a huge kick, the rest of the Knaphill team do not kick long but the whole camberley team do and not just Bradders.

 

It's ugly football?? Agree or not Krooner? Enjoy watching that type of football? Do you coach your youngsters to play that style??

Rather than being disrespectful to another teams style of play and what there supporters do and do not like watching maybe it would be best to put your effort into coaching your team on how to counter this so called ugly football better. I didn't see those supporters being to bothered with the couple of pieces of silverware picked up last season. It does confuse me why you need to question another teams style of play so much when you get beat. I personally would be questioning the why? And what? could we do better when suffering a loss. Good luck with the season though. Lucky you don't have to play Camberley again in 10 days time!

Disrespectful? I gave my opinion on the style of football they play. I wasn't being disrespectful.

Thankfully camberley are the only team that play that type of football in our league so coaching the team on how to combat it is not high on the agenda.

 

And as for silverware, I'm pretty sure you'd swap both of those trophies for the one Camberley have been after ever since they came into this league. Supposed to be a conference club by now according to the Camberley chairman. Clearly the hoof football is not quite working to win this league.

And from my limited knowledge, not one of those promoted teams in previous seasons have ever won the league playing the hoof style. Maybe 'you' could coach them a different style that will win them the league??

Yes promotion would be nice and fair play to South Park and Molesey who fully deserved to go up the last two years. As for the coaching side of things, I would much rather coach winning football and being adaptable to the opponent you face rather than stick with trying to pass, pass pass look pretty occasionally and ultimately finish well off the top of the table. The two teams who did get promoted above us found a really good balance of winning football which is not easy to get so fair play to them.

Poor answer Jonno because I showed your comment to be poor.

 

Happy for you to copy and paste all my comments on my teams style of play and give evidence of my Rose Tinted Glasses.  I suspect I will be waiting a long time.  Cheap shot and you have been found out.

 

I am a one team person.  I support my team through thick and thin and in the 30 years of supporting this club they have been plenty of thins and I have no doubt there are plenty more to come.  So I enjoy the good times and the odd pieces of silverware we win.  I think although VP can correct me that I have seen us win about 5 trophies in those 30 years.

 

Would I like to watch my team play free flowing football.  Of course.  Do I want to see my team win.  Of course and anybody that comes on here and says different is talking rubbish.  I am also pragmatic and have enough brain to realise that in the CCL you are not going to get players good enough and very often pitches good enough to play the football I would like to see.

 

In 30 years of watching Non League football I have seen 3 teams at this level play that type of football.  I am pleased to say that Camberley are one of those sides back in the late 90's.  The other sides are were Mertsham, when they won the CCL Premier Division and Brook House (Now AFC Hayes) when they got promoted from Ryman 2.  3 great teams with a great attitude and were not full of themselves that played some great football.  No other side in those 30 years come close to it at this level.

 

You should be pleased that you were not around in the days of playing Essex teams who truly played long ball and also the year of the kick in !

 

In my humble opinion yesterday was a poor game.  Both sides played it long and it didn't give much entertainment.  That is my "Rose Tinted View" and it would be great to get a neutrals view on that.  We have your "Rose Tinted View"

 

And please do not ever give the great "I would rather play football attractively than compete at the top of the league" rubbish because that insults the intelligence of everybody on here.

 

Also please do remind me of how well you have done as a manager and coach ?
