Butcher is calling for heading to be phased out
at 23:47 1 Oct 2021

I am (clearly) very much in the minority here but I can see this happening across the game and I think it will happen quite soon. The rules will have to be very carefully adjusted or else coaches will encourage different approaches if the ball is in the air (jumping with shoulder, jumping with back in order to control the ball). Logically, the whole notion of an "aerial" ball will need to be removed. They will probably "copy" the template of another sport where balls in the air are not really allowed. In hockey=

"In general play, the ball cannot be raised into the air when hit. A player will be penalised if they lift the ball in a way which is dangerous to another player".

The whole strategy of the game would change radically. Football would become very much football. Strategy would very much involve pass low and shoot. Corner strategy would very much become a thing of the past (no point in lobbing it into the area). Shooting would stay the same but the game itself would have an emphasis on technical skill and less on physicality.

"if we pick up a win then great, personally I'm happy we've managed to get some draws and fully expected us to be beaten most weeks and expect that to continue for several weeks".

Seriously? If we continue with this form "most weeks" we can expect to end the season in the bottom half.

Could turn out to be Cooks biggest mistake (letting Wilson go). We need strength and experience at the back.

Penalties, determination and bravery will all be 20 (takes a lot of guts singing in front of so many).

Wasn't there but my friend was. Apparently we showed them far too much respect and looked as if we were settling for the 0-0 from the off. When the first goal went in, we started to play. When it went 2-1 it was all Chelmsford as we backed off time and time again.

We were the better side in the first 20 minutes. But after that....

Well done to the team in getting to the final. Shame the wait continues.

Could easily connect cities and towns in the future and promote harmony.

Imagine one in Ipswich and one in Norwich.

(A) Dozzell hasn't been sold to a Championship club
(B) We haven't signed Anderson
(C) Recruitment policy is unlikely to follow previous models

He's played much worse than this so surprised he's been singled out on his performance today. About average in terms of how he's played this season.
