Back to the original subject of the thread! Al James was (and probably still is, I guess, though I haven't seen him play for a while) a decent enough player in what was a very good EFC team at the time. I certainly wouldn't have him featured in a top Enfield line-up from the past though - nowhere near as good as the likes of Greg Heald, Graham Roberts, Grant Cooper, Paul Brush, Curtis Warmington, Dave Waite, Nigel Gray etc etc etc.

For me, Al James will always be remembered for his not exactly out of character moment of madness in the FA Cup against Peterborough - without which I'm sure we would have won that match. Funniest moment was to hear him, in all seriousness, asking Andy Pape during a game where Graham Roberts would have stood when defending a corner if he was playing 'cos that's where I want to stand'. Nothing like having a natural gift for the game, is there?!

Still - got to be an improvement on last year's centre backs (I can't believe Reddington still gets a game at that level). Remember, though, that he's not going down a league like the rest of the team as he's already been playing for Carshalton in Division 1 South.

Why delete your last two posts Derek

I read your reply to mine before it went.

Something about: ''NO announcments until everything is signed ,sealed,delivered,what part of that don't you understand''



When you said,in the proggramme, that an announcment on the ground situation,could be in the next few days....Did you expect everthing to be 'signed,sealed,delivered' within the week.

Or was THAT just Bull[cencored]


Why did I delete my original reply? Dunno really!

Anyway, the jist of what you say above was there ie No announcements will be made until everything is signed, sealed and delivered. Premature releases have caused problems in the past!

Following my comments in the programme, yes (based on what I knew) I did expect everything to be resolved.

I also said that I fed up with people slagging ME off due to the lack of announcements. When it comes to the ground, there is only one person, Mr Lazarou the chairman, who can tell you exactly what is happening. Why don't you write to him? c/o Enfield FC, 21-23 Bath Road, Edmonton, N9 0JX.

All that can be said is like most men when my dad saids 5 minutes he means an hour, when he saids a couple of days he means a couple weeks.
But you will hear some good news in a couple of weeks time, don't worry you won't be in suspence much longer.
And the word your looking for is dad, that's all I ever call him, daddy is so 12 years ago.

Don't worry, I feel so sorry for you to with your deluted ideas and comments.
Go to bed, no ones listening.
At the end of the day you ARE a good club BUT you will NEVER take the heart out of EFC and we WILL SURVIVE, even if you don't think so.

We still stayed loyal, we kept EFC'S results and my dad and I only went there because my dad was offered the job of programme editor and then later matchday secretary.

I must say that after these many years that I have supported EFC all I have ever heard is promises,after promises, after promises and they never happen, but SamB seems to sound very hopeful and persistant and women don't nrmlly do that unless they is really believing it.
I think we are getting a ground and why does everyone pick on MCD for anyway?
From what I ave herad he is just a messenger and I don't recall reading in the program him saying in a cople of days.
That's bullshit!
Why won't everyone stop talking out the'r arses?

THAT'S MINE POINT......I didn't believe there COULD be an announcment 'in the next few days'.

The fans didn't believe there COULD be an announcement 'in the next few days'.

I'm sure Derek didn't REALLY believe it .

SO WHY SAY IT.

P.S...If the final piece of the jigsaw, is waiting for Lazarou to Finance the Project...Take it from me .DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH.

There COULD be an announcement soon.

And then again they're might not be. You shouldn't blame Del- I've heard that we've been close to signing a deal for the last 3 months. I'm so bored with this now that I don't think we're moving to a new place- I'm more concerned about next season's admission fees <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />

Take it from me, robby as syrup, malfoy and I have said no one said in a few days.
If you still don't understand, why not read syrups answer again.

Sam- I heard it constantly since January, all I'm saying is that wait and see what happens. We've pulled out of deals before.







I said it coz I'm not happy about it- and I won't be the only one. Malfoy said it first anyway!

I'll try and make it clear for you Sam..the point i was trying to get across.

Here goes: why say ''there could even be an announcment on the ground situation within THE NEXT FEW DAYS''........when there was no chance of it happening.

It's Giving false hope.

How many of the club's statements/promises/ambitions/hopes.....have actually come to fuition,in the fast 5 years.

The club has 'cried wolf',once to often.

Robby, you don't seem to be catching my drift either so here goes:
1.It is hard to believe but if these things happen it will be brilliant.
2.Nobody said in a few day's.
3.The word which was used was: could

TRUE.
Good point.
I know it is hard to believe, I have supported this club for many years, and it breaks my heart when other clubs and tabloids slag us off andwhen we are told things will happen and they don't.
I haven't said these things will happen quickly, but sources do say that even if we are still playing at Boreham wood next season we won't be there the next season.

"Robby", I can understand your frustration! How do you think I feel?

When I put that bit in the programme that you keep quoting, I genuinly believed that news could be annouced. Unfortunately, these things take time and, quite obviously, things were not as far down the road as I was lead to believe.

Please accept my apologies if it gave you "false hope" that was not the intention.

All I can say is something WILL happen - I am 100% convinced about that - but in what time scale who knows! Live the moment now. The club is rebuilding (eg reserve team / stronger links with the Youth section) and Terry is beginning to assemble a team for next season.
