Before yesterday's resounding 7-0 victory over Harlow, captain Rob Tolfrey won the toss and elected to switch ends, because the sun was very bright and would have been in his eyes the first half. The opposition goalkeeper, incidentally, struggled without a cap.

This is the first time (I think) we have kicked towards the 'Tolworth end' first half, before shooting to the 'Chessington end' in the second half and it produced our best performance.

I also very much prefer kicking that way second half, as a fan. The shorter stand means fan congregate together more, and produce a better atmosphere. We should therefore kick that way in the second half.

From now on, we should always play this 'new' way, kicking first towards Tolworth and then towards Chessington. Reverting to the old system would be a grave tactical error. Seven goals tells the story.

Which sounds like a plan of which I am in favour, but, and there is always a but, what if we lose the toss ?

Well, that's always a danger. But it's relatively rare that you lose the toss and the opposition want to turn you around. We should line up 'permanently' in this configuration. Make the 'Chessington End' our proper home end.

The Phillips Stand, to give it the proper name. ;)

Interesting to hear though. I'd say 90% of the time, we kick towards the Car Park end in the second half. Not sure why but if it makes any difference, the wind usually blows that way, so we're playing with the wind behind our backs.

Agreed. Although they are "the Hollywood (Bowl)" and "Industrial End", respectively.

I always thought that K’s played better when attacking the Kingston Road end at Kingsmeadow.

Much the same with the Richmond Road end in the day.

"At least until that blue monstrosity wrecked the ground."

Shhhh you'll bring all the precious ones back on here with words like that!

The Womblish language is difficult to master but always remember: it's 'IMPROVED' & not 'WRECKED'. Just like it's 'GOOD WILL GESTURE' & not 'COMPENSATION'. You'll just upset them otherwise.
