its not just fridays to get ready for a game i dont think they should be out after wednesday


You can't possibly enforce that in a semi-professional league. If we were full-time, Batchy might have some say, but as it is, there's not a lot the club can do if they want to go out the night before a game or whenever else.

the club cant do anything but then its up to the players, what means more getting up on sat pulling on the yellow shirt and taking all three points then going out on a sat nite after a good win or going out on a friday and losing on a sat! these players will get found out by the way they play then they should be dropped

if you want to run a good tight team, you need the players to be well prepared physically and mentally, of my experience at ESL level (not knocking it), a lot of players go out on the razz 2-3 nights a week, some of them would be a lot better players. most of your ressie team from last year, treated the game seriously as they were conference reserve players, after playing against them 5 times in 3 seasons it was clear they were all talented players, i wondered why many of them werent getting a shot at first team? are they not taking it so seriously now?

 

for a few of them maybe the mentality hasn't changed, they still play with the same players, same manager, same training,

 

 

 

i have only heard good things about john batch and he is more than capable of putting together a side to do well in this league, if the players are contracted, you impose a 48 hour rule, this was in force at Great Wakering while i was there and still is??? no alcohol 48 hours before a game!!! if the players want to break it, get them out!! if they cant respect what they are being told, you dont need them.

you can easily run a semi- pro club to the standard of a pro club, Harlow, GWR, Billericay, Fisher, these guys are part-time but the condition of the players is immense, and the training is top class

Your current squad of players were mostly conference ressies playing against ESL and the occasional Ryman ressie team, and havent done that bad so far to be fair!

 

to be brutally honest most of your players know that there places are not under threat, i have watched your ressies this season, and have witnessed some good football, but only 2 of them i think are capable of producing the goods at first team level!!

 

as your GK coach situation been rectified yet??? that would help immensely, i assume craig is helping with training as well???

i think you right GB not many players positions are under any real threat! and are just doing what they need to do to get by without putting in the real hard work to earn that right to start week in week out

players should not WANT to go out the night before a game. if you are turning out infront of 400 fans i dont think you want to be hungover. if they are going out the night before a game then some serious questions need to be asked. i doubt they are though.

evem going out on a thursday though you can still feel the effects on saturday??? well i can anyway, maybe just a lightweight!!!

 

the situation with strength in depth is a problem at your club i feel, all the ressies are mostly 17-19??? some older heads in there would be good, or some 20-25 players capable of playing 1st team, maybe with ryman experience, or go and poach some ESL talent? there are a lot of ESL Players capable of doing a job, mush higher than Ryman 1? smallsy?

I was not suggesting that the lads are on the sauce Friday or Thursday nights.

Playing football at a serious level (or any other sport for that matter) calls for a state of mind where you are able to focus on the next performance and manage that performance in 100% effort and skills offering.

To be dismissed effortlessly in physical confrontation must hurt between the ears and gain a response.

To know where your recovery position is when defending and to make that position every time is a matter of pride not pain.

You must have the energy and the desire to help out a teammate in trouble and it is all the game every game.

The number one possible ever at CIFC being JK.

well it was not everyone cos i for one dont slag off players and did not say a thing!!! you could not have put it better by saying slagging of cos you do that alot with our players and it is not called for!!!!

Rubbish. If somebody played crap then there is nothing wrong with saying so. I've held my tongue when it comes to Ricky until now, because I get this sort of response. This is a bloody message board and I'm going to discuss my team whether they played well or not. I'm sorry if that upsets you, but I'm not going to walk around saying 'oh what a fantastic team we've got, let's not discuss how poor they were, or we might hurt their feelings'. If the players come on here and read it then that's up to them, but as a paying fan, if I want to say so-and-so was poor, then so be it.

I'm quite sure you wouldn't complain if I came on here and said Ricky was our best player yesterday, so I really can't see the problem with stating the opposite (not that he was our worst).

i see nothing wrong in saying it was west fault for their goal on sat, but their is not need for me to say his a [****!!****] [****!!****] his a [****!!****] he should never be in the team again things like which is what i would never say!!!! players know when they have had a bad game and really want to make it up in the next game they play which we have seen ricky do and im sure we will see west do!! all im saying is you are going over the top dont forget these players are not turning up for money, these players care about the club and how they play so dont slag them off to the point where they dont want to play because they are scared of what mindless people who cant even play themself think !!!!

Why don't you quote some of my posts where I've said that Ricky (or West) should never play again. Or where I've started throwing insults around at them. There's no point you even looking, 'cause those posts don't exist. I have never said that one of our players is a [****!!****], or whatever other expletive you've used there. Neither have I said that we shouldn't play a particular player any more.

I have never slagged off any player and insulting me really isn't going to help your arguement.

You are taking the mickey, aren't you?

 

Slagging someone off doesn't involve moaning about what they did wrong during a football match. It might not be very constructive, but those were my feelings. That certainly doesn't constitute a slagging off. A slagging off would be if I came on here calling so-and-so a useless little twat, which I haven't done.

 

For what it's worth, I stand by my comments about Batch, 'cause he was the worst player on the pitch and he did drag everyone else down to his level. Anyone with a decent set of eyes could tell you that.

 

I'm not one of these fans to stand on the side of the pitch and hurl abuse of any kind, let alone at our own players, so I really don't understand where you get the idea that I'm so big a threat to whether the players want to play for our club or not.

 

And don't try to say, 'if you reply to this, you must know you slag off players'. I replied to you 'cause the comments are directly aimed at me.
