Lewis Kinsella: Marmite Scenario?

Post by FarnhamATFC » Tue Jul 09, 2019 6:53 pm

I’ve seen a mixed reaction to us signing Lewis Kinsella this season. Some are very positive and happy with the move, others not so much.

Personally I am not thrilled with the move for a few reasons. One is he was poor for majority of last season, another is his behaviour at Dover Away last season at the ToD, and lastly his behaviour over social media at the end of the season.

I just wanted to see what the views of everyone was regarding the move.

I think there has been too much bleating about last season and having a go at the players who have returned.

Last season there was problems form the GW down. All we kept hearing was GW bleating on about problems in the background and quite honestly I don't think he had the heart to overcome the problems on the pitch and in any organisation without leadership the wheels quickly come off the wagon.

With Lewis it was clear to see there was a deep lying frustration and his aggression and lack of play awareness were there for all to see.

We cannot say how this season is going to pan out but it seems obvious that DS is going for some muscle in the team, particularly if the strikers that turned out for us on Saturday are going to join.

But let's remember to our last promotion - one of GW's signings was Ben Harding who the previous year sauntered about and gave no indication he could become our midfield playmaker supported by Chalmers as his muscle man.

DS will make it clear to all what he expects and unlike GW he is hoping this is the start of a journey not a miserable end to a 3 year stint like GW so those who are not good enough or do not try I will expect to be quickly dropped or moved on.

Fair response, and yes Harding was quite good that season, hopefully DS can get all the players playing for what’s on the front of the shirt again!

Kinsella is our best left back since Chewy.

You obviously watch a different game to everyone else. Kinsella is a proper tough tackling and
good going forward and crosser of the ball full back. Straker was good going forward.

If it helps I think neither of them were /are good enough.
Just wanted to bring some balance to the debate.

Exactly

Good going forward - rubbish at defending (which was his job, whether he liked it or not)
