Every team needs that little terrier that scraps away and helps their team regain possession while stopping the opposition playing.

Why does your comment MB not surprise me. It brings to mind what Len Shackleton wrote in a chapter of his book (to paraphrase him) he headed it " What the Average football directors and administrators know about football"  he then left a blank page. 

I could give my reason how I formed my opinion of RB but to argue our positions we would have to be on an equal footing ie, hold an EUFA coaching badge.  But here are some clues as to why I am critical of RB play . Excitable like a terrier, yes chasing his tail all over the place;  invariably out of position resulting in desperate tackles;  blaming other team mates for his failures; to name a few. If you consider that helps the team there is nothing left to discuss.

Perhaps if you were less cryptic in you observations of others and took time to consider more you may start to realise that this type of football is what is frustrating the supporters.

4wembley finals.

I know because of your health you didn't get to as many games as you would have liked but having seen nearly every game last season I am of the opinion we do need Ryan and his aggression in the middle of the park.

As I have said before I will give 100% support to any player that pulls on a town shirt.

Let's try getting behind the players  and see where that takes us.

It's so easy to be negative.

COYT.

Thanks WR but my health does not affect my opinion. My reason for what I have said is because there are plenty of young mid-fielders out there with no lack of skill and know how who want a chance. Unfortunately we have a regime that seems to be set in its ways as to how they  wish the team is to play. For some time to me and for many others this appears to based on a kick and chase game.

I have always been on the side of those who try to build a side. To do this you need the a mix of old and young to work with and the expertise to bring them together. This means having young players with skills to work on and the experience of older ones to support them.So far as EFTC is concerned in my eyes that was one of  BQ's great strengths. 

I believe that there are a number of like minded members who think the same. But if I am wrong I will still come along as often as I can. If we win go home feeling content but if we lose resort to being a grumpy old git!!!!

Tell you what you can stop claiming you have no money, those 2 ex Chesham players won't be cheap, they were well paid for us and even better paid by Royston.

Potton and Thomas are both ball playing footballers, Potton especially was one of the most gifted footballers at our level when he was with us before but he's been off travelling for months at a time in recent years so maybe has lost it a bit

Delighted with the news re signings, particularly Jon Muleba who was our best player IMO during Quinton time. He was outstanding in Braintrees play off final win.  What news of Mo Faal?

I'll support anyone that gets injured playing for us and then works hard to get back on the training pitch and into the team.

Sorry just my opinion. By the way I never said he gave less than 100% just how he uses his energy. With luck he may fit in better with some of the new signings. The two I remember from Royston certainly passed the ball well. 

By the way a footballers footballer is usual the player who is goes about his business effectively and is appreciated by his team mates but often unnoticed by the crowd.

Good points.....if we asked last seasons squad if they enjoyed playing beside RB I think the answer would be yes.....he strikes a ball so well and hope is always learning.

I liked Ryan as a player ... yes he was caught out of position many times but so were most of the team.... what we so need is an organiser on the pitch ... someone who can see the problems before they happen... I would give the armband to  Weatherstone ... he would be in the best position to read the game and hopefully wouldn’t be too shy in telling Leese where it’s going wrong....

Spot on Theo. Who knows lets hope one of the new squad will meet these requirements. But will AL listen to him. Let's wait and see.

Delighted that Ryan Blackman has committed to ETFC for another season. Unlike 4WF, I enjoy seeing him play 😜. He keeps it simple, which I like. I also remember seeing RB at the ground the Sunday after his nasty, season-ending injury when I was watching the ETFC Ladies first team play (maybe to start physio?) and was impressed by his dedication. 

Equally delighted that Sam Youngs has signed too, and the feedback from CUFCgeneral re 2 of the 3 new signings is positive. Squad shaping up OK. 

Keep going, Management Team!!

Nice post but be careful your positivity might upset some supporters

A captain is more than just what happens on the pitch and Ryan does a lot behind the scenes with the squad.

Accepting that I am clearly out voted I will rest my case. Repeating  a statement constantly made over the past two years "let's see what happens in the next few months". As Thoe inferred, in an earlier post, the squad seems more than adequate to hold it's own so long as they are organised. 

 In answer to the "Observer" fortunately the beauty of this forum is that many subscribers hold different views but all have one thing in common the welfare of the club. That is why, with others, I accept the majority view and being upset is to childish to contemplate.

I’ve got no problems at all with Ryan’s contribution it’s just that when your a competitive midfielder you sometimes don’t see the problems behind you which I think most people on here would agree was one of our biggest problems... you can’t have wingbacks without some plan of what happens if you lose possession... other teams worked us out letting us have lots of possession then breaking into the gaps.... if the manager can’t see it then we need an experienced captain who can see problems things before they happen.... I’m free on a Tuesday night if the manager needs help identifying where things go wrong....

Just because Marc hasn't got the armband it doesn't mean he doesn't  organise at the back.
