Anyone else going?

Will be interesting to see what line-up we put out tonight, with most of our 'fringe' players playing last night. I suspect it will be mostly the U18's.

Are you going tonight? Where you flying from? Part of M25 is shut after a crash and will remain so until later tonight according to the news.

The Reserves won 1-0 tonight despite missing a penalty, and a very encouraging performance in very wet and slippery conditions.

The line-up consisted of mostly the U18s who battled hard for everything for ninety minutes. If some of those that played tonight, break into the first team during the next couple of seasons then our future seems very bright going on tonight's display.

Any chance of having the first names of the Reserve players who played added to the line-up? I only recognise a few from this list:

R. Buckman
Ben Halesey - Cause he scored
T. Makinde
Matt Grocott - In the Squad photo
Cameron Stewart
Dean Cross - Returned from Chelmsford?
T. Benjamin
C. Thete
Ishmal Rethepi
Ambrose Kamara - Looked good. Really tall and skillful striker
Victor Okisor
P. Dell
M. Rugg
Sammy Samier

Certainly nothing special.

Their Midfield went AWOL and 9 times out of 10 their attackers were caught offside. Obviously the conditions were pretty horrendous given the weather, but Canvey were always comfortably in the driving seat and I recall probably only two clear Basildon chances one towards the end of each half. If anything the weather made us more up for it. As soon as the crackles of thunder got louder so did our players who seemed to strive further.

Their 'Keeper saved a poorly taken penalty, but it was too easy for our wingers to get behind their fullbacks. Their Coach kept calling for the first and second ball, which was a rarerity, even if they got the first they never got the second, (I think I overheard someone say that their Manager was actually playing - No. 3 - The rather bald and portly gentleman).

In fairness 1-0 flattered them and better finishing would've seen us win by a more comfortable margin.

Didn't see a great deal of the game as I was sheltering from the second half storm in the bar but Halsey took his goal superbly. Most players would have smashed it over the bar but showed a cool head for someone of his young age.

The lightening in the second half was spectacular to say the least!
