    Margate V ETFC

    Wow, what a performance, where did that come from? Not many of us were expecting that, especially when we saw the team without the likes of Sam Hatton, Sam Youngs and Ken Charles (and Mario Noto also unavailable from the bench). What we saw was an assured professional outing, 3 good goals (touch of handball for the second?) and, most pleasingly, a clean sheet! Hard to believe that was, I think, our 9th clean sheet of the season but our first for over 2 months. All the boys put in a real shift on a cold night - stand out performers for me were Junior Mubayi (a really mature performance) and Nathan Livings, but I also heard others giving their personal MoM to Lyle Della-Verde and Ryan Blackman and there were others who had great games too. Crucially, everybody played their part and the management deserve their own congratulations after a lot of recent criticism. Andy Leese was very quick to point out this counts for nothing if we don't do it again against Hornchurch on Saturday (who, by the way, lost last night - we're now 1 point off the play-offs, so everything to play for!). One final point - a lot of us air our opinions on here, and are right to do so, but let's have a thought for the level of commitment put in by players, management team, directors, volunteers and supporters on behalf of our club. The team coach got back to the stadium at just before 1am last night and everybody then had their own onward journeys, with many needing to get up for work this morning. I've been able to enjoy Premier League football more than most this year but, not for the first time this season, last night left me proud to be an Enfield Town supporter. I only wish more people would join us to experience the highs (and lows) of non-league football.

    Well, that was rubbish, wasn't it? Oh...hang on!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ (Can't wait to see how the moaners are going to find the negatives in this! ๐Ÿค” Only drawing the first half, perhaps? Mo not getting on the score sheet again?)

    Yes a great performance and an even greater result. When I asked what our playing budget was at the start of the season I was left a bit taken aback by what I was told. The quality of players Andy and his team have been able to attract to the club with this reduced budget is really suprising (good job Andy & co) I have been very impressed by Juniors performances, great to see him getting deserved starts now. Showing future Academy scheme members what is possible with hard work. COYT

    Very solid performance last night and very enjoyable. Our two latest signings Lyle and Josh are quality players. Well done Andy and co for bringing them to our club. No mean achievement as we were informed at the AGM we are operating on a reduced budget for the second successive year. And Junior - โ€œone of our ownโ€ improves with every game ๐Ÿ˜Š

    By my reckoning we have to play three of the six teams currently above us away from home, folkestone, Hornchurch, Horsham. And one of the top 6 at home Worthing. That gives us twelve games against teams currently lower than us, six home six away.

    After the disappointment of last weeks two home defeats, our excellent performance last night, on a cold evening down on the Kent coast, will have delighted the loyal Town faithful, and rewarded the many supporters who put in many hours work at the QE2 Stadium every season without pay, for the benefit of our Club. This result will have lifted the spirits of everyone (well almost everyone) at the Club. It is not often Margate lose at home by a three-goal margin, so our guys must have put in a good shift, and thoroughly deserved their victory. So all credit and praise to them, and Andy and his management team. Well done also to our supporters who made the journey, and got home to bed at an unearthly hour, before an early start for work today. Let's hope we can push-on and build on this result when we visit Hornchurch at the weekend. It will be another tough encounter, but our away form is marginally better than our home, and our guys will travel with renewed confidence and belief after our performance and win at Margate. Keep the faith! COYT

    'Attendance only 47.' Well if you choose to schedule a game against a 'B' side at the same time as their first team are playing, then what can you expect ? There was no need whatsoever for this game to have been played this evening. The general lack of initiative and imagination among non-league Club Secretaries in and around London continues to be nothing short of staggering. (As an aside, an attendance that is equally shocking this evening must surely be the 223 who turned up to watch the cup-tie between Barnet and Farsley Celtic. This, you will recall, was called off a couple of weeks ago only seconds before the kick-off time, after both sets of players had been warming up on the pitch for about an hour). In passing, you may also have noted an impressive win by St Panteleimon over a hastily-cobbled-together Cockfosters Reserves side. A thoroughly unnecessary game and a complete waste of an evening for all concerned. If, however, it has brought some small measure of comfort to some of the people at St Panteleimon, then so be it. Anyway, the good news is that the lazy and ignorant blazers of the Middlesex FA can now all sleep soundly knowing that their rules have been adhered to. Because that's all that really matters, isn't it ?

    Puts us back in the picture. One swallow doesn't make a summer. Interesting our home record is worse than away. Historically it's the other way round. Guess a clean sheet always helps.... Not had mnay this year have we? Moaners? Guess you're happy with some of the poor stuff we've played this year? Praise when it's due. Critique when it's not.
