Back to my environment/genetics rubbish. Geezer on the Terras forum clearly having issues with the style of this league and look where they are! He reckons to get out you have to adopt an AFC Wimbledon style, presumably incorporating some 'garryowens'. He maybe onto something. I do feel that Hendon are probably the only team in this division without a playing style. Most sides look midfield orientated, most with average strike forces and defensive qualities. Tivvy resorting to a one trick approach, again proving hard to handle. These sides are average. Guessing Salisbury maybe the more traditional all-round side. Interesting to see how we evolve. Take Bayley, thought the lad did well, linked up with Chaps and Toomey very well. I'm unsure how he fits in a traditional midfield - Charlie Smith looks recommended if other fans are anything to go by and Matty has yet to get his feet under the table. There is a complete contrast in the division between home and away form. We have to build a side capable of not just blowing teams away at SJP but getting clean sheets on the road. Weymouth and next Saturday for me probably give an insight to the better components of what the benchmark is. Teams feared us last season - I have always remonstrated my thoughts on 3 up front - when operational it's fantastic - to survive through the riggers you require more all-round stability. I think this young man is going to construct a powerful, strong unit. I've yet to see a player in this whole division with that blistering pace. I do think we can construct something unique.
Great interviews, this Gaffer says it all. He could make this forum redundant! Well done to the lads for sticking at it and keep driving us forward - literally!
