Tractor Tales - December 9th

9 months ago By Stephen King

A series of personal thoughts from the seat of the tractor.

By Aiden Mynott


It is nice to know that the old ways still work. Yes, in this digital world the old snouts came up with the goods. You saw it first in tractor tales that there was going to be a change of Manager and it happened on Wednesday lunchtime.

It is never a good time or an easy thing to do, change the manager but it’s something every Chairperson has to do at some point in their tenancy. The timing can be wrong or the decision and choice are rushed and you can end jumping out of the frying pan into the fire. I’m sure that last years experience played on the Chairman mind this time.

For what it’s worth I think the appointment of Craig Edwards is as significant to this football club as the appointment of Sam Allardyce is to Everton football club. The experience and knowledge of managing combined with the commitment to succeeding will I’m sure become infectious. On the note of the Everton manager spare a thought for the FD who is just about to return from Cyprus after watching his second team Everton. On arrival in Cyprus he found out that the Everton manager was not going to be at the game and as of Thursday he had attended more games than the manager.

However in his defence he had watched like myself and the Club Secretary the last 2 Ware games so Cyprus sun and beer was probably a good idea. Just wish he had taken me and William. But that would have meant missing today’s game. Let the rebuild begin.

Tuesday night was a strange night for a number of reasons, some forgettable like the football but memorable for the goalkeeping. Now our number one keeper got injured in the warm up so for the second time in this competition one of the Academy keepers went between the sticks. Unfortunately for him in the 85th minute he was left exposed one on one with an opposition forward. Now at this point I have to point out I have not spoken to the young man but I don’t think he was aware of the triple jeopardy rule. This states if a genuine attempt is made to win the ball but a foul is committed a penalty and a yellow card should be awarded. Our young man went for the opponents jugular instead of his Achilles heel and was therefore red carded. So come on Sam I think you should be explaining this to your keepers in the Academy.


And on that bomb shell

Where next?

Advent Calendar - December 11th 12 goals in one game, our biggest score draw.
Advent Calendar - December 10th Three-nil three times on this date plus a league championship; and brothers, don't forget the brothers.
