Now,now Canman - no sour grapes. Aldershot were the better team on the night. let's just put it behind us and wish them well for the future.

Sorry JanE. I don’t think they were the better team on the night. They had a game plan which they stuck to which was to close us down at every opportunity and upset our passing game, which it did. They looked lively up front but their defence must take the credit. Over the whole game, we did not get through too many times, but when we did, there was always someone there to get the ball away. Thought the ref missed a lot of the little pushes and fouls but they will feel quite a home with all that sort of thing that goes on at a higher level. One thing I must say is that we must be the most genuine team around who want to play football irrespective of what’s at stake and I would much rather watch our style.

Canman - perhaps its a good idea if you dont go up this year

Gravesend are bad at shirt pulling!!!!!

Wait till you see the conference mate, we are nothing compared to the s*** that goes on up here and that the refs tend not to see!!! Long ball football!!!! there are plenty of conference sides that dont have the ability to kick it that far!! i thik its quite a tactic!!!!!!!!!

I think we were beaten by the team who wanted it more.

Was Chris Duffy carrying an injury? He played well for 10 minutes then he didn't have the legs anymore. What's Jeff doing playing Olli as a left wing back for half the second half?

A combination of poor officials (though the important decision he got right), good defensive play by the Shots and a disbeliefe that we could win (by the players) cost us the game and in turn the league.

I don't get to see all the midweek games due to the return journey I have to make, so when I do make the most of my season ticket i'm disapointed not because we lost but because we didn't seem to want it (I can't tar Lee Boylan with that brush).

Makes the journey home a long one.
