An Interview with Blues Manager Lee John as he reflects on the Season to date.
Goytre United Manager Lee John
PUBLISHED: 5th Oct 17
Question.
5 wins from 6 games, you must be happy with the start you've made to the season?.

LJ
Of course, 16 points out of a possible 18 is a superb start. We've not really had many complete 90 min performances yet, so theres still room for improvement.

Question.
What is the difference with this years squad compared to last seasons?.

LJ
We have much more energy and pace throughout the squad and I have been able to identify the players I wanted in key areas. Last pre season we lost the majority of the squad to Llanelli as the players followed Manager Andy Hill. So it was a really difficult start for us.

Question.
Do you see this squad challenging for the league this season?.

LJ
It would be disrespectful to the players to say no after such a good start, but also a little premature to be saying yes,what I will say is we are capable of winning lots of football matches this year with the players we have. So we will just take it one match at a time and see where we are over the New Year period.

Question.
Are you still looking at strengthening the squad?.

LJ
I think every Manager is always looking for talented players, especially in the lower leagues. Just look at Tom Walters, he is adapting very quickly to the pace of the league and found his scoring boots in the last couple of games.

Question.
A good point against Llanelli or 2 points dropped in the final seconds?.

LJ
100% a good point, we didn't play anywhere near to our potential, so to score 3 goals away at Llanelli who are everyones clear favourites for the league title is a big positive for us and shows we have more to offer.
Before the game a point would have been a good one, on reflection of the game a point is still a very good one,
I can't deny though that it wasn't disappointing for them to equalise with the last kick of the game, but not many teams will go to Llanelli and score 3.


Thank You Lee and Best of luck for the rest of the season.
