  1. Past hour
  2. From what I hear Andy's first team budget is considerably less than last season's,I think he has done a great job with the players he has recruited.And he has been very unlucky with injuries to a couple of key players.
  3. Jonno - Surely Roger doesn't prefer the Essex Senior League to the SSML, it is nowhere near as refined is it and I expect some of the behaviour and language in the majority of the away board rooms is quite uncouth
  4. Today
  5. Are there any further FA Youth Cup Preliminary Round dates with games due to be played during the week of 2 September: Newport Pagnell Town v Daventry Town Biggleswade United v Leighton Town Winslow United v Buckingham Athletic Godmanchester Rovers v Stotfold (Wed 4 Sept) Harpenden Town v Grays Athletic (Thur 5 Sept) Codicote v Hornchurch Woodford Town v FC Broxbourne Borough Colney Heath v Chelmsford City (Mon 2 Sept) London Tigers v Hampton & Richmond Borough Hanworth Villa v Harefield United North Greenford United v Burnham (Wed 4 Sept) Edgware Town v Chalfont St Peter Hungerford Town v Tring Athletic (Wed 4 Sept) Fleet Town v Aylesbury Vale Dynamos
  6. Lower profile??? I would disagree entirely. Attendances in the ESL are far superior to the SSMFL. Travelling support in the ESL is incredible and makes for much better atmospheres at games. I’ve lost count of the one man and his dog games I have seen in the SSMFL. I also think the administration as well as the social media presence of the ESL absolutely blows the SSMFL out of the water. A change is as good as a rest and to be honest, I don’t miss the SSMFL at all.
  7. I do realise the club is run on a budget and we have to live within our means but it seems blindingly obviously to everyone (apart from the manager)that we are still in need of a couple of capable central defenders, it’s also a pity we couldn’t have re signed billy crook once he left Dartford ( he signed for East Thurrock)at the beginning of the season he would have been a perfect link up man for the strikers and I’m certain his goals scored would have easily reached double figures, can anyone see any of our current midfielders hitting double figures this season?
  8. Hi Jonno, thanks for your post, it's a crying shame Hoddesdon Town aren't still in the SSML, how are you getting on in the lower profile Essex Senior League, I suppose it is a far easier route to Step 4 isn't it as Haringey Borough found to their delight and the rest has been history for them, they would still be languishing in the SSML Premier Division.
  9. This is absolute nonsense, I’m even better looking and wealthier.
  10. Big J R - It's like I've never been away, Karen hasn't changed has she and neither has Winslow Boy.

  12. Savagebee - Although Dunstable Town have started the campaign relatively poorly by their standards with defeat at Colney Heath on Saturday and an embarrassing 3-0 home defeat to Broadfields United on the opening day they are still no mugs and also beat Baldock Town and Chipping Sodbury Town at Creasey Park in the League and FA Cup so although St Panteleimon will obviously fancy their chances at Berkeley Fields tomorrow evening in their SSML Challenge Trophy bow I fancy Dunstable Town to win.
  13. A report and photos from the proceedings at the Boundary Stadium on Saturday: https://www.oxheyjets.com/portfolio-item/20190817_firsts_arleseytown/
  14. I saw him only last week at Bishops Stortford as Hoddesdon travelled to play Enfield FC at the Pro Kit UK stadium.
  15. Oh Cliff, how I’ve missed your passive aggressive comments and loaded diatribes!! Welcome back old boy!! Hope you’ve been enjoying your travels around the world. Have seen some photos of you online at various different footballing arenas abroad. Hope you’re well
  16. Strange then that you can be surprised at the result of any game if you haven’t actually watched it then isn’t it. It was a decent season, ultimately disappointing, a poor start and some inconsistency killed us. Still, the football has been excellent and lots of goals last few years. Hopefully we can go one better this year.
  17. Yesterday
  18. As you know I live in London near Crouch End so getting to Elmfields Gate for a game is difficult as I don't drive and there is no train station nearby as far as I know, I thought that you had a really great season last term finishing third albeit twenty points behind Broadfields United in second.
  19. I see Oxhey Jets striker Nicholas Kerley was among there goal scorers yesterday. A team from a higher level should give him a try if they can tempt him away from the bright lights of Oxhey 🙂 he's a decent striker.
  20. They are still unbeaten and a point is a point after all.
  21. Harefield United will do ok this season and they might even surprise a few people. In Andrew Harewood, Tashan Jordan, Richard Pacquette and Leonard Farhall they have good goal scorers. Tring Athletic away was always going to be a tough game for The Hares or any team in the league to be honest.
  22. Beat them in two cups, were the better side in league game at ours, were very unfortunate in that one, was one of the games I saw. I guess you wouldn’t know since you didn’t watch any of the games. They murdered us in first game of the season though. Very good side.
  23. 72W, as I have said before Hatton's no show was a complete mystery to me too. Whetherstone's lack of mobility can be hidden by his experience and awareness. But you cannot play another centre back beside him with the similar lack of mobility, and much less skill. That is why I query the choice of Rumens over Hatton, or another, whilst the new C/back is injured. It seems that the management see something which we are missing. Or is it because deep down AL still desires someone who sticks to his long boot the ball ethos.
  24. Winslow Boy - I still don't know how you managed to win 1-0 at Preston Park in the Challenge Trophy last season, fair play and you also led at the break in the league game there didn't you but capitulated in the second half
  25. Yes agree with you 4wf,it was a shame Taafe did not play (tight hs in warm up) he was superb on Tues,linked up particularly well with Muleba. Our other main problem imo is our center backs lack of pace,as a result holding a far to deep line. Why Hatton was not used baffles me ?
