Getting Stoned!

A nice touch over on the Stonesnet Forum. A bit personal this one. No apologies in the circumstances for that. Tuning in to the Stones v Sutton game, I wandered onto their forum only to discover a past Telford player, (I live in the town), has passed away. I watched Telford for over a decade and through-out the shot-stopper was a lad by the name of Kevin Charlton. Certainly the best keeper I've ever seen in non-league football. A really fitting tribute to Kevin is on the AFC Telford website. If Harrow fans are reading this, the infamous FAT SF 2nd leg 1983 has recently been put up on YouTube. The 83 final again recently added has interviews with Kevin, his character shows through.
I advocate you create teams in the present built on the successful DNA of what has gone before. Watching the Stones tonight. I can't help seeing similar styles from their famous 85 double side. A lot down the flanks, a la Cordice. Wainwright, Bowgett all of whom were consistent reliable performers. I do think they for what it's worth one or two additions in a similar mode would not go amis. I do think there is a modern trait in the game of over indulgence in flamboyant formations. The game on BT now Man U/WBA line up resembles a Napoleon battleplan. What happened to central midfielders. All the play in these games is placing emphasis on getting out wide. On Hendon, I do think Lee has a cohort of whom resemble consolidation and a foundation.
I do think its going to be interestng to see how both clubs down there in London move forward. It's been a while, I would like a game vs the Stones - a good test. Great to see some good young managers making headroads. Its proper football - turning Man U off!
