Can we merge the "Bitch apology" wind-up / comedy thread with this one please, admin?
Surely it's the same subject, just a different view.
"A clear pathway for young players"
A pathway where? Directly from the youth team to the substitutes bench?
Beech doesn't trust our own youth players. Charters deserved / deserves a run in the team, but has been treated poorly.
Name me one home produced player he's selected to start consistently. He trusts our youth players less than any Carlisle manager I can remember.
How often did Dempsey play for Curle?
No, he only started four times in 13/14.
He started 43 games in 14/15.
Problem with Charters is that he is poor in the air and doesn't get stuck in enough for a midfielder.
I think that translates as "the problem with Charters is he doesn't chase the ball like a demented puppy, run lots of pointless distance or lump the ball aimlessly forward when it drops to his feet".
The whole point of having a team is you have a blend of styles which compliment each other. I'd argue being a dominant header of the ball is low on the priority list for a team which passes the ball through the midfield rather than plays long ball for the majority of the time.
Also, he didn't seem to have a problem tracking back and tackling in either the Walsall game or the game he started against Morecambe in the CCU Trophy.
Many thanks for the translation Piglet.
I’m sure many of us were struggling with the complexities of Flatcap’s statement.
