  13. Lesson number 1 of managing Elliott Hewitt. Never ever play him at right-back. All he has to do is watch our 4-0 loss to Yeovil in August 2018 and see our woeful he was there. Although he is welcome to continue playing him there if it means, he costs them points

  18. Burchnall said in the week, they had been working on defensive situations which is good to hear. Just need to apply it when it matters. E.g. the willingness and determination to get to the ball first from a cross or a set piece and clear it. At least they are seeing the areas of weakness and are working to try and fix them issues. When the set piece coach is appointed, I'm sure that will help. Still think we need a centre-back with pace as we can be suspect to a ball over the top. The injury to Lewis Knight has also left us with a gaping hole up front, in terms of the absence of a pressing, pacey striker. Palmer's decision making with the ball is something I'm very pleased about. He says a forward pass quickly and that gives him the chance to link the play with either, his fellow centre mid or a player further forward, to get us on front foot. O'Brien's 3rd man runs, forward running and energy helped us get back into it. Rodrigues making space for the other forward players and his ball carrying is was massively key too. Decision making needs to improve at the back. There's a time to control the game with possession and slow it down and a time where you need to up the intensity and get it to the wings or through the centre of midfield and get on the front foot. There's having possession, but you have to use it with purpose and you must play through the thirds quickly, with slick passing and pressing forward with the ball. There are times we have played ourselves out of a sticky situation at the back (e.g. Derby) but when the time comes to get rid, get rid of it.

  20. Great signing for them but we shouldn't be going crazy like everything is bad in our world because of this signing, or the fact we haven't signed a "proven goalscorer." Take his pens away, he has the same league goals as Wootton last season. Also, he has been bought in to start for Chesterfield, whilst we bought Mitchell in to provide competition for Wootton. We have also got more threats than just KW. Mitchell can contribute, then there's Ruben, Roberts, Palmer, Nemane and O'Brien. Mitchell's goalscoring for King's Lynn, when he's played the full 90 (as mentioned in another post) is decent. Wootton has scored 13 and 15 in his last two seasons respectively (in the league) and 18 and 16 respectively (in all competitions). He also contributes assists and hold up play, bringing players into the game, which is good news for Roberts, Ruben, Palmer, Nemane etc. These players can help Wootton as well and every players finishing can be worked on in training. The two promoted teams from last season (Sutton and Hartlepool) didn't have a player who scored 15 or more. I'm also hopeful that we'll be able to keep our key players fit as Cameron and Vincent have mentioned that the fitness and physio side of things is under good control with Marco and Craig. Remember Ruben played Sat-Tue-Sat during the run in last season and was a constant fixture in the team. I also hope this means, Lewis Knight's return to action will be handled well.
  21. Basically tweeted mine out - Played some great football - Mitchell looked good, running in behind and linking up the play - Nemane and Taylor were threats going forward - Cal Roberts looks back to his best - Conceded poor goals - A little suspect at set pieces - Need a bit of work on decision making
  22. I think I remember Burchnall saying he would only turn to loans for cover incase of injuries, or if it was the right fit and they thought it was worth doing. This might have to be the case because of Lewis Knight's injury. I'm absolutely gutted about his injury, as he was just getting up to speed and showing good signs in pre-season and after the signing of Mitchell, our depth up front seemed fine, but now his injury is worse than first thought, we might need a short term loan to cover, whilst he recovers. Imagine he will be back October/November time.

GK Sam Slocombe GK Tiernan Brooks RB/CB Richard Brindley RB Dion Kelly-Evans CB Alex Lacey CB Connell Rawlinson CB Kyle Cameron LB Joel Taylor LB/CB Adam Chicksen CM Ed Francis CM Matt Palmer CM/CAM Jim O'Brien CM Frank Vincent CM Michael Doyle W/CAM Cal Roberts W Elisha Sam W/RWB Aaron Nemane CAM/ST Ruben Rodrigues ST Kyle Wootton ST Kairo Mitchell ST Lewis Knight ST Tyreace Palmer Good versatility within the squad with several players able to play different positions. Also a very flexible team and if we have to adapt mid-game and switch formation, I am sure we will do so, just fine. I think Burchnall and the coaching staff will help develop the new signings and the other young players into better players. Francis, Vincent, Knight, Nemane, Tyreace and Mitchell to name some. Really looking forward to this season, probably more than any other season before. The whole positive atmosphere around the club is the best I've known it before the start of a season. The connection between players, staff and fans is excellent.
