Yes, just seen it on FB. Falling out??
Probably the same as happened with Esme last season, young kid wants to be playing football and is not happy with being left on the bench all the time which is what is happening more often than not. Both have gone from being first choice strikers, scoring goals and doing a decent job to be left out in the cold somewhat.Yes, just seen it on FB. Falling out??
Quite possibly but then Connie's game has never exactly been about pace. It's always been about strength and power. The problem is there is a gap appearing in terms of youth and development for later years. That's the third player of Chloe's age , 18/19, that has left the club (Esme, Ocean and now Connie) in the last twelve months mainly because they are being displaced by older players. I get that the womens side needs to go forward in the immeadiate future but it also needs to keep it's younger players when they've proved that they are capable of playing the level that the side are in so they can keep developing to maintain the sides longer term development. It might be that the players have already peaked and they will get no better but I doubt that. There are patterns appearing that, for me, don't bode well. I think a lot of the issue is that there isn't, to the best of my knowledge, anybody overseeing the womens setup as a whole and those in charge have a win at all costs attitude and are blinkered to here and now.Isn't it just a case of the team evolving? I watched the game at SJP earlier this season and tbh Connie looked WELL off the pace of the game.
