I actually enjoyed watching their play - i would happily go to watch them every week if that is their usual standard.
Really? We have different preferences on style of play then. I can’t remember Dover stringing more than four passes together and the amount of goal kicks we had because they just hoofed it out of play was ridiculous. I’d love to watch a highlights reel of Brundle and Gallifuoco’s touches on the ball in central midfield, I reckon 80% of them were aimless hooks over the shoulder.
It’s not the type of football I like to see but unfortunately it worked against us. They marked so tightly against our forward players and just let our centre halves have the ball who are unable to start an attack. It was a frustrating watch, but we won’t cone up against that challenge too often and I’m still hopeful. I wouldn’t mind seeing McGinty and Higgins replaced though.
To be fair this post is pretty spot on. The more I think about it, on reflection Dover didnt really put much together, yes they had more chances and they took them but all game they were a physical, bullying lot of bastards. It was all wrestling, bumping, pulling, a toe here a hooked high ball there. They were a well organisedsolid unit who knew what they were doing, especially Parry but also Brundle the captain and the left back. Trouble is we wouldnt have scored if we were there until midnight and despite a lot of our passing game for once, which I was pleased to see we lacked a bit of bite, spark and any cutting edge and most of the times we played right into Dovers hands.
