I think the right coaching can make a massive difference at any level. If nobody is there telling you how to do something better, how to move, when to move, how to gain that area of space, you are just going to carry on doing what you do at the moment. You wont improve or adapt.

you never stop learning!
these aren't kids, how much more coaching to kick the ball at the net do they need?

With a decent striker coach we could have sold Azeez for about 45m in today's money.

IMO
OK "Simon old son, although you are the best we can afford within our budget, I seem to remember you were a midfielder in your playing days so probably not a top-notch striker coach of the caliber required to sharpen our pencils, so to speak"

Would that work?
Yes definitely ask Simon Bassey that one

Jog On - Why do we need a top level striker coach when we already have Simon Bassey who is the best we could possibly have within our limited budget?

Or you could add Marcus Gayle and David Connolly to that list...

.....really should have remembered to book the day off work though.
I thought Cody was fine last night. I think he's the kind of striker who does little for 85 mins but then pops up and scores a goal. Only issue is he looks like he needs to shed a few pounds.

OI, you've gone and done it now! I was avoiding a similar comment lest we start up the stand v terrace support debate again :-)

Having said that, I have stood for both games that I have attended (Burton & last night); there's less vitriol on the terrace. Roll on Saturday...

Back to the Cody & Kwesi show ( I like the sound of that, what time's it on?) Neither look fit enough to carry out the role of "speedy poacher" properly at the moment! I do agree that from last nights evidence, Cody looks like he wants the job and will score goals, while Kwesi seemed to still be making his mind up, if that makes sense? LTB is the real deal though, he hates losing and he put in a serious shift and a half for the team.

I always think we could benefit from a striker coach, someone who has scored goals at the top level and could work with all of our sharp shooter wannabees and develop technique and movement.
Hash, the sad thing is I could almost believe that was true!

Windlesham, I believe there was a boycott because people weren't happy about not being able to stand in the rygas

Just in case Square Nut hasn't posted yet, but I thought that the turnout of Wombles last night was embarrassing. Brentford brought over 1400 to a lousy ground to see a squad team play inferior opposition. We managed to muster 1800 for our first home game of the season, a local derby against a club in a higher league than us. Very poor effort IMO.

DDD - they turn the main stand lights out so as not to disturb our sleep

Jogs, IMO the performances of Cody and Kwesi were miles apart. Cody did all that you would want from a striker in a team under pressure. He made himself available, he hassled defenders and he got into goalscoring positions. Kwesi didn't.

An early contender for the Tyrone Barnett award for effort?
RE North Korea it is obviously a complete farce of a country but ultimately neither South Korea not China want that regime to fall as they would then be dealing with 20 million refugees/ have to deal with the rebuilding etc. I can't see much change happening there unless Kim dies which will cause a power struggle and civil war.

Not just Cody but Fuller (I think?) missed pretty much an open goal just after their equaliser which would have put us 2-1 in front.

Jog On - same thing at Scunny on Saturday with CM and KA. I think a) it's tough for the centre strikers as the squad is getting used to the new style (and we have to accept they're L1 players so even when they're adopting the new style the quality is still not massively high) so they're picking up scraps in the middle of the box and b) you're right Cody looks like he's blowing a bit (trying his heart out though) and Kwesi looks like he's a yard off the pace for now. There was one moment last night where he waited for his defender to mess up a high ball and he sprang onto it very quickly. I think we'll see more of that from him than him getting stuck in like an LTB. I don't mind that if that's his strength and I'm sure we'll see more dodgy defending from L1 defenders than we did from the Brentford boys last night.

TGG - China will bide their time and then fight it out with SK to own the (strangely glowing) territory left behind.
Morning All - Other than the result, I thought the game last night was thoroughly entertaining! Brentford are a bloody good passing team, they are a standard that we can aspire to if we want to make the most of our new pitch surface. Having said that, and given how good the opposition was, I'd say the team acquitted itself admirably, matched them for effort and passion and if Cody had got that header in the net, we could be in the next round this morning. Biggest plus point for me was George Long, that lad is the best keeper we've had by a country mile! Nightingale looked strong and in control, and I'm going to say it .. Francomb played very well in the middle of the pitch.Negatives for me were Cody and Kwesi, both looked a yard off the pace and not sharp enough to cut butter. I'm sure they will both get better as fitness levels increase!

On the whole, and based on last nights performance, The Dons will be comfortable in L1 for another season!
No-one's helping with my decision whether to lead a cleaner, more responsible life...
