    What's happened?

    As a newcomer to the Urchin cause I have only ever seen Nathan Cooper on the opposing team but he always stood out with awesome performances. Glenn seems to have settled quickly though and his experience at higher levels will hopefully get the clean sheets coming in again. From my Thurrock days, it took a while for Jordan to find a settled position rather than filling in wherever necessary as a utility player but once he started sitting in front of the back 4 at the bottom of a diamond he found his home, from comments I have read many long-term Urchins seem to think the same way. I am also a long-time fan of Joe Christou and was very pleased to see him back in action - and again what I have read on Twitter, match reports etc. also identified him as making an immediate impact. Also, in the short time I've been following the team, I have never seen someone hit the post so many times as George Purcell - if either or both against Folkestone had gone in I'm certain we'd have won that game. George Saunders - how does he not get kicked ten yards into touch to slow him down after mugging off another full back? But, my goodness, when he is on it he is unplayable! To me, he sometimes seems to rush when he has more time to wait for a better situation to develop but so many assists already and can only get better with time. I could also wax lyrical about all the other regular starting XI (could also bitch but I tend to be glass half full) and it is frustrating that the results aren't matching up with the quality of the football. But, 3rd to 15th are covered by only 10 points so string a few results together, get on the bottom of that ladder and then suddenly another couple of results can jump you several places up the table.

    Great win for Hornchurch today, always looked more dangerous than Corinthians going forward and stood firm defensively. Will be really good to see the excellent George Sanders free kick again and pleased for George Purcell to get a good goal in for the third. Going down ? Not playing like this. Great three points today

    Rudi Hall is pretty memorable! Liam Hope will always be a Town legend. Don't think there were many who knew of him before he joined us but we certainly know his name now - written himself into Town history and can be very proud. Without taking anything away from his first stint, I'm very pleasantly surprised with the positive contribution he made on his return. Thank you for your service to the club Liam, I'm sure you'll always be very welcome at ETFC.

    What's happened?

    Agree with most of the posts on here. A big factor is the loss of Nathan Cooper at the back for large parts of the season and all of Stimson's reign. We are also struggling for consistency and seemingly play in halves e.g. good second against Harlow, good first against Burgess Hill, good second against Carshalton - need to do it for 90 minutes. Also agree with Anthony that we are tending to concede at awful times, especially just before and after half time.

    What's happened?

    It will come, today I did not feel any of our players had a bad game and we just failed to hit the back of the net. The second half on Monday for me was one of our best resent performance for a long time. I have full faith in our new manager to get us playing well and winning games again.

    I suggest you try to get to the games to make up your own mind, then you can let us know.

    Enfield Town v Margate

    Beat me to it with the Nolan distribution... why has it taken this long....second half we actually looked like a football team with hardly any wasted punts forward... first half pretty even and slightly fortunate to be a goal up.....still too many simple passes going astray ...but second half we really opened em up... I liked Karl before and he is an excellent replacement for Mo... Sam Young’s really looked a class act again and was my man of the match by a mile...still need to tighten up at the back early doors as Margate could easily have led but well done to all concerned... it makes me actually look forward to the next game now and it will be interesting to see if the message has got through to Joe that hoofing forward repeatedly will not bring good football.....

    There were some ETFC players who represented their country after 2001.

    It's a shame but there are lots who give their time to players from the past who played for Enfield FC rather than those who have played for ETFC since 2001. Lets HOPE things change.

    Worthing v Enfield Town

    Having seen both the Dorking and Worthing matches this week, one where we were very unlucky to lose, late in the game, against a very good second in the Table side, then this afternoon when Town fielded the same starting eleven, and Town delivered a highly impressive all-round team performance, to beat The Rebels 3-0 to move above them in the Table. There was a big turn-out of the Town faithful and they were richly rewarded for their continual support. After Billy Bricknell gave Town the lead, bang on half time, our players piled on the pressure in the second half, and with the wind on their backs, Matt Johnson hit a superb goal from 25-30 yards out, which hit the back of the net before the Worthing keeper had time to move. A BIG contender for goal-of-the-season! Two minutes later the match was all but over, when Matt struck again, for his second and Town's third. We also went close on a number of other occasions, but a 3-0 away victory against a team who, as Raingod points out, beat us 4-1 at the QE2 Stadium before Christmas, is by any standards an excellent result. Have we turned the corner? Time will tell. If we continue to play as we have done in past two matches, we will win more than we lose. It will be interesting to hear what other Towners, who were at the match today, have to say. Sure it will be very positive. Well done Andy and our players ..you did us proud!

    Relegation Safety Net

    We are not of course in the bottom three which are the relegation places. However,we are only three points above the 19th and 20th placed clubs and it is a bit naive to suggest that we are not in the relegation zone/area or whatever else you want to call it.
