Thoughts already percolating - going off on a tangent here. One thing I like doing with new recruits is drawing comparisons with past successful denominations. Looked at the new lad and I was immediately drawn to a comparison with Leon Smith. Took it a stage further and thought about the contrast in styles between both our previous play-off sides. Completely different. Leon's campaign, 2014-15, saw him net 24 goals in 64 apps - his partner in crime, Kezie Ibe 28 in 62. The partnership strikeforce looks to be dominant. Maybe an Elliott Charles/Ngoyi option with a mobile youthful option. I'm already impressed, in just four weeks, with what's fallen into place. The role of the left/right backs becomes more involved. Seeby a standout that season. Trying
to get the workings of the Gaffers mind down on a bit of paper - I think we're going more back to the conventional tried and tested. Looking forward to it.
Sometimes you can do too much thinking. Just enjoy the meal that is served up, not the detail of how it has been prepared. Too many cooks springs to mind?
Certainly the Leon Smith, Kenzie Ibe, Aaron Morgan combination three years back was totally different to last season, yet massively successful. I well recall a forum posting from an opposition supporter saying how strong they were, holding the ball up well.
