Can't take too much from this game but against a very strong Hull side including Nick Barmby making his debut we acquitted ourselves well.

Hull look a decent side and in the first half Danny Potter had to make several excellent saves. We battled hard and played some good football in spells but seemed a little lightweight up front without Lee Boylan. Hull will probably be among the contenders for promotion from league one this season and they kept the ball well and gave our defence plenty of problems.

Of the new signings, Dominic Sterling had a superb game in defence, reading the game well and looking very solid.

Jonnie Keeling came on half time and lit up the game with some superb dribbling and nearly scored with a great effort. Also showed a real hard working element to his game.

Tony Quinton also came on in the midfield and distributed the ball well.

Canvey also featured Matt Joseph on trial, a former Leyton Orient and Cambridge fullback.

For the record, Nicky Barmby and Andy Dawson were second half goalscorers for Hull.

Great defensive first half for us, shame about the second. We needed Lee to have any opportunity to go on the attack, but we did hit the bar twice!

Yellow, who was the midfielder with no number on his shirt, wearing (I think?) #17 shorts? It's been bugging me, thought he had a bloody good game along with Sterling. Will look forward to seeing them play in the near future.

Shame about Chenners, he seemed to be just as bad as he did last season, is it about time we played Gav with Sterling?

Potter had a great game with at least 3 amazing saves that were definate goals, one I remember in particular was shot from only about 2 feet in front of him. Hopefully he can carry that on for the rest of the season.

Also thought that Keeling did well when he came on, didn't seem to give up (Simular to J.K) and kept going. Needs to know the team a bit better but I can see him having loads of potential.

Over-all, I was pleased with the performance against a very strong Hull side. I was disappointed with the performances of Duffy(didnt seem to get going), Midgley and even Minton(both laking sharpness), JK was a little subdude but it is very early days and of course our first friendly, the rust will be replaced by the usual sparkle.
Was pleased with Dominic Stirling who was very pacy and strong in defense(good early signs), impressed by Joseph(no number shirt)whos work rate was excellent but as expected tired into the second half.
Many more friendlies to get into prime, I just hope that we have not overcooked the pre-season and have an early burn-out.

We really have to sort out our set piece ideas in defence though.

A good workout for both sides and a touch of class from Barmby for his goal. As for the new guys, Sterling looked very assured and Keeling did well when he came on, hard to tell about Quinton because Hull were keeping the ball very well at the time he came on.

Hull looked a good side especially in the 2nd half and look like they will do well this season.

Sky sports news are showing the goals this morning for those that missed them, it`s worth watching for Barmby`s goal.

Yeah that was Matt Joseph, who is a trialist from Leyton Orient.

Chenners definitely seems to be in a real bad run of form. Seems it may be the time for Gav or maybe Dave Theobald to replace him.

A few other things about yesterday's game.

The bar was closed at half time which was a little annoying.

What was that crap we played when the teams came out? I prefered the Final Countdown or better still going back to the good old days when we played Guns N Roses 'Welcome to the Jungle' before the teams came out. I think that would be highly appropriate in the Conference!

Nice turning up at the ground and seeing the Nationwide Conference signs at the entrance!!!

It was announced over the tannoy that the bar will not be open at halftime during the season so they were going to start as they mean to go on.

As for the music i liked it, i think it was "fanfare for the common man" but i`m not sure but anything is better than "the final countdown"! Can`t see us going back to "welcome to the jungle" i think it is seen as giving the wrong impression.

Just thought Welcome to the Jungle might evoke the Crazy Gang Spirit and since we're probably the smallest club in the Conference I thought it would be good to rouse a really intimidating atmosphere!!!

I thought I recognised Spencer Knight last night, and it seems as though I was right. Has he been bought or is it just a trial or something?

The lad had some good games with us, and some not quite so good ones. Still could be a good player for this season and i'll look forward to seeing him again.

Edit:
I wish the club could fill us in on whats going on with transfers:
Who's J Smith?
Who's Mouyouokouop? (Pronounciation?!)
Actually, thinking about it, a chunk of tonights team I didnt recognise. It's all good, but I'd like to know a bit about them, and who we have <img src="/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />.

i was impressed with our performance tonight against a very strong hull team. Dom sterling was brilliant, john keeling looked really good going forward & tony quinton done well when he come on.
Nick barmby's goal looks beter & better every time i see it on sky sports news.

I believe spencer knight is just with us as he wants to get match fit again. never know, he might impress and earn a contract

interview from Hull Daily Mail.



Taylor added: "It was a good workout. Canvey is a difficult place to come to and they have got a lot of players who have been at pro clubs.

"We enjoyed it down here last year when we won 1-0 but I think this was even better."

CIFC YA most clubs try and keep their cards close to their chests in regards to trialists, there is no point advertising the fact so-and-so is playing for us only for another club to come in and show interest as well. I don`t think we will get any info until if/when anyone has signed a contract, it`s all part of the fun of preseason!

I remember a few seasons back, when we had a trialist called kevin james. He played for us against gillingham he had such a good game that gillingham gave him a trial and earnt himself a full time contract.

Mate of mine is a season ticket holder at the gills said he was a good player but they have now just released him as he had some injury problems. maybe we could try getting him back down here if he hasnt already found another club.

Just adding to what Ronin and Wayno have posted. I did post a season or so back, that we have lost players, who have been mentioned on this site, before signing. I'm sure that is the reason the management keep the names to themselves sometimes. To help the club i think it would be best if we only mentioned players we've signed already.

Cheers for the replies, I understand now. Would be nice to keep some of these players as they've proved they can play against teams in higher leagues. Lets just hope its a successful season with loads of new signings .
