Yep - All about Tingey!
The lad has graduated. I thought he may have done this time last season - but alas! I think the lad has the distribution eqivilent of the Staines lad in their promotion night 4-0 win. A'la Tommy Brewer. First 20, he owned it. See our goal,. Friendly aside, holy mother of god what a pass from that domain for our goal. The goals we
let in vs Weymouth for me typify what we need to address. Zubor out wide, winger roamed unchallenged onto our box - two warnings before two identical goals. The lad Tingey this season can reverse that to our adavantage.
Fully expect the gaffer to go three up front. I have profound misgivings. Wide midfield today - same pattern as last season. First 20 second half, the lad Hope never touched the ball. Game becomes stretched, - the distribution ala Tingey could concievably enable Connor to get in the box. Not sure the conventional wisdom prevails. I re-iterate, I think the lad Luke is looking dominate - we cannot have another campaign where the old failings remain un-resolved. I do like the look of the lad confronting Sprague. The gaps between the lads wide and those at the back enable sides to play neat passing triangles through us. We have to consider alternatives.
Going long in the second half down the channels vs midfield subterfuge is the premise of our encounters was the orchestration of the last campaign - we need to overcome this obstacle.

Oh how I’ve missed these Sunday morning missives!
Re: Yep - All about Tingey!
Agreed. I may be in Hungary, but it is just as if I have seen the entire match, albeit a little bit confused. Thanks Rob as ever.
Really enjoyed last night - engaging. Thought both sides mirrored eachother. I thought last night was transformational. Increasing emphasis on incorporating the back-line. It reminded me of a vintage French Rugby Union side - boarderline arrogance. What really hit home was how quickly we seemed to incorporate the style of play. I've never seen a Hendon team play with that French style flair. Moreover, I thought there were spells where we looked more composed on the ball - the odd break-down or misled pass - your going to get that - but the potential!- I thought their midfield combination were instinctively direct, their only intention - in comparrison we looked measured, content in the re-assurance that we would regain possession and go again.
Without sounding derogatory, I wasn't convinced we had that depth. The lad up-front, showing signs of composure. It far exceeded my expectations. There's real hidden talent in this crew. Credit to the players on a very difficult night - they can only get better the more they buy into it. Must be enjoyable.
Huge credit to James and his staff, there's a lot of work clearly being input. Fair to say, based on last night, the lad has his feet under the table. I think this lad may well have a plan. Irrespective of staff, budgets and the like, get organised and as light night showed, it's a great leveller. Great for morale, the fans included. Insightful.
Very well done.
