    Worthing

    In the Oxford English Dictionary, under "a game of two halves" it will say "Saturday 17th August 2019: Worthing 0 Hornchurch 6" Another opponent and another line-up. Jordan Clark, George Winn and Mitchell DIckenson as a back 3 with George Saunders on the right and Mickey Parcell on the left, ostensibly as wing-backs it seemed. Hornchurch seemed to stand off of Worthing and invited them to bring the game, presumably to get possession and break with the pace of either Parcell or Saunders but as it turned out we were forced into more of a flat back 5. Worthing had a lot of value out of cross field diagonal balls and also little dinks into the forwards and were very quick to harass the ball and give us no time. That's not to say it was one way and it could easily have been 5-5 at the break but on the whole I thought Worthing edged it. Second half, Hornchurch started chasing the ball themselves and ten minutes in Chris Dickson got himself one on one with the keeper and fired across into the far side. On the basis of the first half I thought it was going to be a big ask to hold on for 35 minutes but 5 minutes later and Worthing were caught in possession deep in their own half and Dickson got a near identical 2nd. Hornchurch had also subtly changed to stop the diagonal balls. Suddenly Worthing couldn't keep the ball or string two passes together and again lost the ball deep in their own half, a couple of square passes to Ronnie Winn who rounded the keeper and tapped home for 3-0. A minute later Dickson got his hat-trick with a close range shot high into the roof of the net. Another 10 minutes before Ronnie got his second. Charlie Stimson and Daniel Akindayini came on for the final 5+4 minutes and in the final minute another calamity for Worthing and with virtually his first touch Charlie Stimson neatly lobbed the keeper to open his account for the season. Off the field highlights were:- Chris Dickson applauding the linesman for flagging Ronnie offside to prevent him also getting a hat-trick and having to share the match ball Charlie Sidgwick, so drunk he could barely stand but a masterclass in taking down the sour grapes Worthing fans and also calling out Mikey Christou on his lack of flag tying skills. All in all a lovely day on the South coast although I'm not sure what was going on with the pitch, it smelt like being in a Kwik-Fit
  4. That's the problem Clippy, you are not aware of much!

    I totally agree. I was just repeating what Charlie was saying to the Worthing fans
  6. What a fantastic second half, I don't normally make comments after games, but today I witnessed a great performance by the team and our finishing was superb, what's more it was good to see Charlie get on the score sheet.
  7. I took it as being a hard copy, sorry I suggested it was a real programme. Not an e-programme.
  8. cup of tea

    Worthing

    First half was tight with maybe Worthing creating the better chances but the second half was all about Hornchurch. Worthing just couldn’t live with Dickson (very good hat trick) and Uchechi and some great goals with Ronnie Winn scoring a couple of good goals as well. What on Earth was their keeper doing for the sixth goal? Suppose it was just frustration at that point as it had already stopped being a contest. Only thing for Worthing second half was their no 4 going off injured which may or may not be a factor for them. Complaints - none, well done Hornchurch
  9. Like Cman an Rebel this too was my first match of the season and after the write ups of the first two games I was expecting something a little bit better than what I got. But as I have previously said I will withhold versing a judgement until we have played at least 10 games. But I must can't help making a few observations. It was obvious that there were several absentees from the first two games. But I was surprised to see what we had to replace them. From this it is quite apparent that we are short of central defenders. I must admit I was quite surprised to see Hatton was on the bench, when his mobility and passing is far superior to that of Rumens. However, to day the real problem was not that we played a much better side ,man to man, but that they were a more mobile organised squad who played to there strengths. NO one held on to the ball or attempted to beat three players at a time , like Youngs, which nullified our pacy front line. Instead they moved the ball on quickly Also they invariably won the second ball, although sometimes rather cynically. But the underlying factor, and something which we have always lacked with this management, they were Organisation. Once again we showed a complete disconnect between defence and attack. One hopes that the playing management management will be able to address this once that have more players available. We will have to wait and see but it will have to be soon.
  10. And where was our manager and assistant. Players get a frowned upon if they take holidays or go to weddings etc during the season but it seems ok for our management team to do exactly that. Poor imo.
  11. First game I have witnessed this season and I must say it seems we have not moved on from last judging by this performance,I do realise we had some players missing but the midfield looked somewhat disjointed and in my opinion only two players muleba and Thomas came out of this game with any credit, after the first half showing I thought we were never going to score but we came out in the second half looking a different team and scored a really well worked goal from then on you could see us going on to win the game unfortunately our defence had other ideas and completely crumbled, to sum up Horsham are not a particularly good team and will probably finish mid table at best but were the better of two poor teams
  12. My first game this year. I was really looking forward to it, feeling optimistic after last weeks encouraging comments. Hey ho, maybe next week. 😳😳
  13. Mike he was blinding and then cheeky Worthing fans that were having a pop at his that one fan he had some balls but that Charlie was superb he can stand with me any game or I’ll go stand with him
  14. Shefford are 4 for 4 quite the return to football at this level, a one time south miss powerhouse.
  15. Ian Basher Bates dream start to the season is over against one of my title contenders. Lets see if they can bounce back. A Premier Division lesson for The Hares today. A St P are human after all 🙂
