Enfield Town v Wingate & Finchley

Recommended Posts

Worrying situation.Brad has had a full season and a full pre-season to mould a settled side and system of play...Signing numerous players well into the season (of various and sometimes dubious quality) doesn't bode well.Also his ability to seeminly fall out with the best players in the squad does not help either.

Let keep a settled back four.Put Lockie back a right-back.I would put Purcell centre-mid as a partner for Crook.Samir and Tyler wide,with Ottoway and a partner up top.Lets just try playing with the same formation and same line-up for a few games.

As I see it there seems that we have a one set of good attacking technical midfield players who want the ball to feet and to influence the game that way and defenders and defensive midfielders playing long and high to Harry and channels. I know what I prefer - but whatever the plan A is the players have to understand and it has to be stuck to.

 

If it is not working then they should all be able to revert to a different approach.

Have to agree with LS. I am concerned that Jordan was not even on the bench on Saturday.

 

It seems that Tyler is our best wide player but even he seems to move inside on one of his runs.

 

Ottaway needs a good goal scoring partner or I have to say he is a luxury if there isn't one.

 

I know it is a bit left field but I would consider moving Kirby to the front line providing there is

adequate cover at the back. He made a run on Saturday which could have come off. Jordon played centre half

in the friendly against Dagenham.

Jordan was there pre match

I thought I heard that Jordan left the ground as his partner was close to having their baby.

Sure someone can confirm any official news.

 

"Most" supporters appear to have a very similar opinion on who would be our best selection and the preferred formation, capitalising on certain players skills.

 

We all think we are a Manager - most supporters at all levels do !!!

To be fair a lot of supporters have vastly more experience of watching non-league football and all its various formations and tactics than any current manager does..Ok managers normally have more experience playing at the level.But fans with thousands of games under their belts (over 30/40/50 years) can sometimes see things and have certain ideas of how to rectify a problem, than a young manager may have at the start of his career.

This is why is was useful when George was in charge alongside Brad. He brought experience along with the ability to motivate....oh, and more than a little controversy!

 

I'm not sure about putting Kirbs up front. Don't you remember Steve Newing's Kirby Experiment when he fielded him up top? It really really didn't work.

 

We need to keep the ball on the deck, play with wingers or wing-backs - Jordan and Ricky perhaps? And we could do with finding the next Corey.

 

There ya go, problems solved!

I do remember Steve's experiment however our two forwards are not working at the moment

and Kirby has not played up front with either Ottaway or Wynter. We are not scoring goals at the moment as

our forwards are ineffective.

Will be very interesting to see our team selection and formation this evening. Wonder what changes, if any, Brad will make after Saturday. I wasn't there, but wonder what changes should be made after that disappointing show. Thoughts anybody?

There was very little semi-professional football in the 5O's when I played. We

were Amateurs, or supposed to be. But the equipment was different and some pitches hardly had a blade of grass on them, but the game was the same, except for

substitutes. What is different is the attitude of the managers and coaches.

 

As I said earlier, they have made a simple game into a difficult one. So I will

repeat what I have already said, a defender's prime job is to be able to defend

and a forwards must be able to attack. In between you have the half backs

( mid-fielders), the power house of any team and as such must be able to do both.

 

Until a team adheres to these basic disciplines all the new fangled talk about

playing in different formations etc. must be secondary.

 

WE all agree that we lost to a poor team on Saturday but again I must say that

they were still more disciplined than us. So when I say play ugly, I don't mean

kick the hell out of the other team, but to know when to attack and when to

defend.

 

Lets hope that Brad has had a sharp talk with one or two who are intent on going

Gung-ho so that they give others a chance to show their abilities and come home

with a win.

      Good to drawn at home in the FA Cup today. An interesting match for everyone to look forward to. Be interested to hear other Towners thoughts, hopes, expectations for this match, which is worth quite a lot of prize money for the winners.

      Despite heavy rain, after a mid-morning pitch inspection, todays League fixture against Harrow Borough at Earlsmead Stadium, is expected to go ahead, subject to there not being a deluge before kick off.

      Town have already played Harrow twice this season at the QE2 Stadium, beating their Middlesex rivals 2-1 in the Emirates FA Cup, and 3-0 in the League on New Year's Day.

      Todays third encounter will be far from a pushover, and Town will need to build on their recent improved performances and results, if we are to collect maximum points on this wet Bank Holiday afternoon. Good luck to Andy and the boys!  COYT

      Tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon Town extend a warm welcome to our opponents Met Police for our third Bostik League Premier Division fixture of the season at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium. KO 3.00pm.
       
      Last Tuesday evening, while we were losing 3-0 at Hendon in a challenging North London derby, the Blues went down by a similar margin, losing 4-1 away to newly promoted side Dorking Wanderers. The Met won their opening home match, beating Worthing 3-1 at Imber Court.
       
      Both teams will be looking to bounce back this weekend, after their disappointing mid-week defeats, and another very close, tight contest is in prospect.
       
      Next April is a long way off, there are 44 more league fixtures left, so plenty of points to play for, and Andy, Darren, and our new squad of players, deserve plenty of noisy support and encouragement tomorrow, as they battle to secure our first win of the season.
       
      GOOD LUCK, LADS!

      READY TO GO!
       
      It's back, and there is plenty to look forward to on Saturday afternoon, when Town host Folkestone Invicta at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium, in our opening Bostik League Premier Division fixture.
       
      After all the comings and goings during the summer, optimism is high that Town can make a good start to the new season, with our new management duo Andy Leese and Darren Purse in charge, and an impressive squad of quality close season signings.
       
      Be interesting to hear peoples thoughts on how Town are probably going to line-up against Invicta on Saturday afternoon.
       
      Folkestone seem likely to be without striker Joe Taylor and influential mid-fielder Micheal Everitt for this match. Taylor has damaged his knee, whilst Everitt picked up a groin strain last weekend.
       
      Last season, back in April, Town beat Invicta 3-1 at the QE Stadium. Will we chalk up another win? What do you think? How do you see the outcome?
       
      One thing for sure, this is going to be another close, very exciting match. Let's be there to show our support for Andy and our guys, as they look to deliver our first win of the new season.

      Earlier today Town travelled up to the West Midlands for a commemorative friendly match against Highgate United at The Coppice this afternoon (3.00pm).

      The match has special significance for those of us who were at that fateful Highgate United v Enfield FC, FA Amateur Cup game, 50 years ago, and witnessed Highgate player Tony Allden being struck by lightning and dying shortly after.

      Today, as we remember that very sad event, the occasion and ongoing friendship between the two clubs, seems much more important than the outcome.
