    BRAD OUT OF A JOB

    I disagree on this Theo. Firstly, do Towner fans really despise Brad? I am an Out of Towner so wouldn't say I know the inside track on such things, but I would be surprised if this was the case. I was gutted when he left, and not happy about the way the team followed, yet I sent Brad a message on twitter thanking him. He replied it was a tough tough decision, and I do think anyone apart from Braintree, where he played his whole career, and he would have stayed. As to where we are now, well I think we have a great squad at our disposal now, built by Andy, sitting in the play offs while we are not yet firing on all cylinders. Andy absolutely deserves the chance to make this work this season and we all need to get behind him. Yes, Saturday was not great, but 2 x 6-1s away and generally performances good.this season. Let's remember Brad's seasons in charge always started slowly. Would the team stay together if Andy left anyway? If we were managerless I would be happy to have Brad back, but I am confident we will AT LEAST reach the play offs with Andy in charge and the squad he has assembled!

    Enfield Town v Brightingsea Regent

    Plateau Lack of Confidence Loss of form Change of tactics Whatever it is....clearly our form at Home is not good enough. Last few home games we just haven't looked like we're at the races. Teams will pack their defences and we seem to have no way of getting through it at the moment. Surely management can see this. Ryan looked gutted last night and his effort showed how desperate he was to get the points. However, come 90 minutes it looked like he had to beg the team to come over and thank the fans and Liam couldn't get back inside any faster if he tried. It's clear that the fans are waiting for any trigger to get the atmosphere going and at the moment it's not happening. I actually thought Aaron's play last night was one of the highlights. We do manage to get wide and deliver however Joe's pumps from goalkicks rarely end up with our possession. In this league one area teams aren't weak at is in the air and the passes need to be pin point to avoid this. We give up possession too quickly...when the defence is back our slow play doesn't work and even though MJ was trying to encourage quick/crisp passing last night it was only there in glimpses. For me it has to be patience and possession. Obviously better build up play too. For me our shape/starting position is crucial. Why oh why do we drop so deep?? This only means we're inviting teams on and any look at highlights will tell teams that they can start higher up the pitch and as soon as they lose it we have to break them down. Is it too obvious to say we need to push up and squeeze their players more? I've not seen many teams that can out play us but a few are now starting to battle us and it must be no secret that we've got to get higher up the pitch instead of trying to stretch the pitch lengthways. Just a few of my thoughts....I hope these draws aren't a sign for the future. Huff and puff with little quality. Highlight last night sorry to say was Mario trying to retrieve the ball quickly and nearly falling flat on his face over the water bottles...........😁

    I second that 1961. Tremendous effort well rewarded with an excellent turn-out and a good time had by all. (Bit like it used to be at White Hart Lane I guess!) Seriously - superb. Looking forward to next year already assuming the liver recovers.

    Don't limit it to players. Jim Chandler, Peter Hammatt and Steve Newing should be there (in my view).

    BRAD OUT OF A JOB

    Theo, I think you may well have misread others' feelings towards Brad and well done to you for admitting that. Personally, I was very upset with what happened after Brad left, but I certainly wouldn't say that I detest him. I can understand what he did and why he did it. (What the players did can't be blamed on Brad: they had freedom of choice). I take no pleasure at all in seeing that he has lost his job. But...having said that I wouldn't want him back (and certainly not at the expense of Andy). I have to hold my hands up and say that I got caught up in the, dare I say 'hysterical', call for Andy to be sacked last year. I was wrong. I just took a look at how the two managers started their first two full seasons in charge in terms of their first 9 games: Brad: 2015-16) W1 D2 L6 F3 A13 Agg-10 Pts5 Position 21st 2016-17 W2 D3 L4 F13 A 10 Agg+3 Pts9 Position 18th Andy: 2017-18) W3 D3 L3 F15 A14 Agg+1 Pts12 Position 15th 2018-19 W4 D5 L0 F23 A11 Agg+12 Pts 17 Position 4th In summary, Andy has started the first nine games of his two seasons in charge MASSIVELY better than Brad's first two seasons in charge. This is despite the fact that Andy was starting from scratch in 2017-18 and also despite the fact that Brad had all bar the first six games of the 2014-15 season (when George was manager) to get ready for the 2015-16 season.

    Not heard anything to that effect Peter but there will always be scare mongers We had a testimonial for a mate of mine Bedfint Green at BSFC and it played lovely i still think they are the way forward for non league as the amount of revenue they create in total with limited maintenance is really a no brainer and IF the initial outlay can be found if used correctly it definitely pays for itself and provide a fantastic revenue stream Of course that’s all in my opinion although some of it is fact Good to see you back Pete

    Wow, bit of a harsh post Theo, in my opinion. You are obviously entitled to yours and that should be respected. I know it's still early in the season but Andy has got this team into a decent position so far, he's assembled a good squad and got a young management team in place. They haven't lost in the league yet and it's definitely an improvement on last season, which is what we all wanted.

    Enfield Town v Merstham

    Cannot comment on the game because I am overseas. However, if Merstham reduced ETFC to playing long balls, then why didn’t we change our tactics?
