Aylesbury United Discussion / Re: Just back

Whatever we thought about the game yesterday, often bigger wage bills don't always win - desire and teamwork are huge attributes for any team to hsve, whatever the ability of the players.  But  the cream generally rises to the top, hence why most of the teams in the top 10 in our league have the bigger wage bill. 

I'm afraid now more than ever we need the support of our people to.help us be competitive next season.  Waiting for a return to Aylesbury won't work, we have punched above our weight financially this season, to do it again next season would be a miracle!

Could never be enforced .you'd just go back to Brown envelopes and under the table payments. As usual for us it comes back to us returning to Aylesbury. with crowds immediately doubled or trebled overnight we could then afford a better class of player
Incidentally I think bewley and ball could be natural fits as wing backs, but it's going to take time and practice

Better and sharper team won in the end - score a bit flattering.  AUFC still were very much in it for the first 20
minutes of the second half until their wierd third goal.  No disgrace and a positive performance. But get the 3/5/2 v
4/4/2 sorted out. Bewley is a really good left back and overlaps well - but in the 3/5/2 set up he was lost.

And on the subject of £££.  The disparity between club results in this league/this season is wider than ever. Before the season started the clubs who would top the league were obvious.  So why are wages paid at all in this league ?  Would
expenses only at this level not only keep clubs solvent but make the League more competitive. Start paying ££ wages
from Southern Premier upwards ?

For a team who's aspirations are to be in the National League in five years time , Bedford will need to start improving their squad rapidly .
They were much quicker , fitter and robust than us but hey ho we are where we are .
They had a stroke of luck with the third goal and we were still hanging in there , plus as dull as ditchwater to watch at times . Imo

Poor old Bedford, spending all that money and they still won’t go up.

bit of a recurring theme this season .money talks. Unless our whole  team are ' on it' we are going to struggle against the likes of Bedford and a whole host of others in this division. Dan walker and Paul Benson are hardly turning out for peanuts and the love of the game whilst Connor furlong is allegedly paid 4 or 5 times our players. You have put these facts out there after yet another heavy defeat.but we weren't disgraced and there were a lot of positives to take.we were saying seconds before their fluke third that we deserved an equaliser.
First half we struggled with the 3-5-2 both jone s and bewley struggled to get to grips with their role whilst
Seaton hardly touched the ball and berry was having a mare.luckily frenc h Williams and mitford made up for them .second half and we matched them with Jones and berry much more enthused and involved. Jake however never looked happy and we were almost relieved for him when it went back to 4-4-2. Has been a very frustrating season almost summed up by this game where teams with much more money have inflicted heavy defeat yet we have still matched them and played some good stuff at times.

The legendary Tahj Bell helps save North Village from relegation. I've seen a lot of players turn out for AUFC but its safe to say i will never forget Tahj.....
