So we could draw you in that. I wonder what the odds are for each team to win the tournament.

Money or not, its still a long way to go for a friendly.

While no doubt players wil learn about each others' strengths and weaknesses, I can't see Newport offering much about Ryman II opposition.

Surely the whole idea of friendlies is to gain match fitness, build team spirit and develop an understanding between the players. <img src="/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

On your second point, I don't think any Ryman 2 sides will want to play us, seeing as we are gonna play them all at least 3 times during the season. Or were you suggesting that Newport are too good for us? Well, if they are that's ok, we can only improve by playing teams better than us.

Think of it as our pre-season tour. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

At least we are agreed that Newport IoW is a way away-unless you have something to say, Jim!

Nope. If you live on the island, it isn't far at all.

So, there's a secret cell of EFC supporters on the island. That explains a lot. Is TL there too?

Perhaps it's on the IoW that Greg Howell is considered a hero! For those of you not living in Enfield, the back page splash on the Enfield Independent last week was 'Enfield Hero Returns'.

Now I can think of a few but with due respect to Mr Howell.....

He may be, but he's still a quality footballer. Those of us who were at Haringey Borough first game of the season won't forget...

Dunno. Maybe Ron's returned to Enfield as penalty taking coach. <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

So is that all it takes to become a legend at EFC these days, one friendly at Haringey Borough?

When I read last weeks headline in the Gazette, I thought someone like Paul Furlong or Greg Heald had rejoined them, but Greg Howell? Legend? Nah. <img src="/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

Err... it wasn't a friendly, it was the FA Cup game against Hemel. And that was just an example of his talent, last season before he took over as manager he was in great form. The best free-kick specialist we've had for ages.

I never said he was a legend, but he will add experience and quality, which we need.

Why don't you cheer us all up by telling us all about the amazing players Jim Chandler's bringing to Brimsdown?

I think that the local press have pretty much summed up the list of overseas, previous and anticipated players that Jim will be looking to establish his squad from. No doubt somebody will be able to confirm how the first training session went [last night?] and how many were there.

Expectations seemed to range betwen 30 and 40, which would suggest there would be a fair number of new prospects to think about.

I'm struggling to visualise Greg and Ronnie in the same team, nor whether you'll be able to pay the fines!

I apologise. When I was talking about a friendly at Haringey, that's because I assumed you were talking about an away match. Didn't think for a second that your nomadic travels had seen you play a 'home' competitive match at yet another ground. <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
