re: Chelsea 2015/2016 Season Long Thread: Calling any and all RBs - MUMFORD
As a less than 10 year Blues supporter, I don't know if I've ever felt this disappointed. We're not out of August and the league title is practically out of reach. Checking the table and seeing Chelsea in the 13th spot tied for 7th place seems unreal. Could Relegation be possible (sarcasm, with a h...

re: What is your opinion about buying extended warranty when purchasing used car? - MUMFORD
[quote]If it is like my '07 Civic then everything will slowly fall apart around that wonderful engine.[/quote] Perhaps. As a former '98 Accord owner that was not my "Honda" experience. Lasted until 2008-09 before what you described remotely began to occur. As long as the Civic gets her through th...

re: Tactical Question - Positioning Back Line on Youth Team? - MUMFORD
[quote]Yeah. It would make no sense at all to stretch your defense out even more, given his complaints. If I play a team with a sweeper, I'm keeping a striker high and I'm hitting some balls over the top. You're playing with fire, especially if you have speedy wingers who can get in behind the fullb...

[quote]I find it interesting that the OPs complaints are slow backs and many people said to solve the problem by going to a 3 back where they are man marking in more space. HH had, easily, the most sound logic.[/quote] Thanks for the perspective....

re: Tactical Question - Positioning Back Line on Youth Team? - MUMFORD
[quote]That's on coaching. You have 2 center backs and usually 2 center mids for a reason. I don't think it's a speed issue. The girls should know who's stepping and who's covering whom.[/quote] In hindsight, I tend to agree. In fairness, the trainer is new to the team and appeared to take more o...

[quote]I agree, but it sounds like he has a slow team.

re: Tactical Question - Positioning Back Line on Youth Team? - MUMFORD
Thanks. The team had some decent turnover from the spring and were playing together for the 1st time this weekend. I know the trainer wasn't trying to be too tactical, but it was frustrating watching mutiple games where teams simply were playing "long balls" to the forwards and making it a track me...

Tactical Question - Positioning Back Line on Youth Team? - MUMFORD
Had a question regarding my daughter's youth team (U16). Their current team make up finds their primary formation with 4 across the back. Apart from moving a forward or winger to their defenders are very deficient in the speed department. With limited options, are you better served by playing the fa...

re: Dodgers trade for 2B Chase Utley; give up Darnell Sweeney & John Richy - MUMFORD
Is Chase being brought in to start or platoon? Is Kendrick hurt or perhaps being moved to another position? Not understanding this moving when pitching (particularly the bullpen) is still shaky. This team is not ready to challenge the Cardinals or "post-season" Giants....
