I cast my over James final season at St Albans, (Sorry)! No malice intended. They utilised 60 players. Both surrounding years 45-ish. Hendon, play-off years both around the 40 mark. Every other recent season back to the norm of around 60. I love patterns. I think they reveal a lot about a campaign. If identified can be a huge benefit. Interesting to note. our first play-off season, Kezie and Leon up-front. The second recent play-off, 3 up-front, what I termed at the time as Blitzkrieg Football. Lesson learned - you have to cut your cloth accordingly when it comes to formation and personnel. I do think there are managers of whom stick to a preferred methodology. Hence, for me the priority is establishing our brand. When things start to fall apart - the wheels can come off pretty darn quickly. With regards to recruitment, given the back-drop, I thought last season James did a stellar job. Guri forced out - Cole a prospect lost and we lost a lad to the football league. Clearly, the lad has a sound working knowledge of the environment. I like the notion of un-realised potential combined with a few wise heads. I like the pre-concieved notion of our forwards in the mud on away days. Home form factors in questions raised above. Get that right - we're in business.
