Agreed, long ball totally isolated manny and that made it look as if he wasn't in it for some time,I just hope we play more on the ground stuff as we look pretty taty then, I know that this is dependent on how the opposition play and that stevenage had a plan to stifle any play.

Agreed long ball totally took manny out of the game for long periods and made him look ineffective,but, stevenage were playing spoiling tactics and totally stifled any play in mid field, hence the only way out was to hoof it up field.
Personally I think when we play opposition that can actually play on the ground we look a lot better, still great result.

I said previously that our style of play yesterday cut Manny out of the game. Fair play to Stevenage, they came to Stonebridge Road with the sole object of disrupting our usual game, and for long periods they achieved that. We had to play them at their own game, and bringing on Moussa was the catalyst to winning. It just goes to show that we can mix it up, no matter what style of football is being olayed.

Stevenage were (in my opinion) the best side weve played this season by far (didnt go to Morcambe). I expect them to finish top seven. Thats what makes our own performance so very good. The goal for them was a cracker. He most certainly spotted Wilko of his line and belted the shot to the back of the goal. Overall Gravesend shaded it through commitment' tactics and fine defending when it really mattered. Gravesend are looking very very good. They wont loose many playing like that....home or away. Perhaps its time to sort out the terracing at the Northfleet end and stick some Stantions up for the supporters. Just in case. The grounds looking great if things carry on wouldent want anything to hold the 'Fleet' up. Well done Andy and the team. Super Match, super performance. And thanks to Stevenage for providing some stiff oposition.

The bloke's an animal - last season his instruction was to clobber Wilko in the opening minutes, knowing we didn't have another 'keeper on the bench. Nice, eh?

Still, this year he managed to behave himself.

OK got the 'keeper wrong <img src="/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" /> but there still wasn't another one on the bench.

Got the bit about Maamria being an animal right though! <img src="/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

Just to add my two pennorth on the subject of the ref - was I the only one to see the two blatant shoves on fleet players in the penalty box first half? There was also a Jefferson Louis hand holding one, but that could've been iffy.

Anyway, the free kick for our second might've been questionable, but if the ref had given them Skins would have put us 2-1 up from the spot in the first half.

As for the performance, superb! Full of heart, full of running on a hot day, with plenty of skill as well.

Couple of great saves from Wilko, right through to Moussa's winners, all played very well, yet we can still find odd bits to improve on.

All in all, I think we've forgotten how to lose - long may it continue!

One of the best things I heard was 2 Gillingham regulars talking, almosted astonished at out standard of play, and how they would definitely come back when the Gills are away. 2 more converts!
