    Very disappointing 2-1 defeat last night. Josh Urquhart played left back this time with Joe Payne on the bench, whilst Glenn Wilson came in for Marc Weatherstone and Sam Hatton was back in at right back. Junior also replaced Scott Thomas. First half was comfortable and we went in 1-0 up after a Ken Charles snapshot. Probably should have been further ahead but, at that stage, Brightlingsea matched their lowly league position. As so often seems to be the case the second half was a completely different story and Brightlingsea thoroughly deserved their win. Good luck to them for the rest of the tournament - Corinthian Casuals' win in the league last night pushed them down to second from bottom. Think the next 4 games, all against good sides, will give us a good idea of where we'll be finishing up this year. We really need to raise our game massively if we're to get anything out of these.

    AGM

    The session included our inspirational Skipper who answered all questions honestly and made a very bold statement when he said we will reach the playoffs,So hold on to your hats guys we are in for potentially an exciting end to the season. Very impressed with all the hard work that has gone into creating the community side of our club to registered charity status. Well done guys Sad to hear 3 Directors leaving the board last night thanks for all your efforts guys.

    I've just looked at the start of the match video and it confirms what I thought: Josh was at right back from the start.

    Think Bradford Town could be the limit of the run. Checking this morning, they are top of their league and have won 9 of the last 10 in the league. would love to go this game but apparently it isn’t what the wife wants to do on her birthday!

    New Harlow Town manager

    Mark Holloway has been appointed manager of Harlow Town. I hope you all remember him because he apparently 'took control' of AFC Hornchurch to secure promotion to the Isthmian Premier League. My memory must be getting worse... https://www.harlowtownfootballclub.co.uk/news/club-statement-first-team-manager-2505701.html

    Enfield Town v Cray Wanderers

    We could have been three down before getting our first goal and then the soft penalty. We weren't at the races and continually fed their defenders with high balls. Yes, we got back into the game, but signs were there that we would concede another goal. I stood behind the bench for the duration of the game and all I could here was the coach telling players what to do, and when. Just what do they do at training which warrants a coach having to tell them what to do all the time? Don't they know what they should be doing? As for the substitutions! Baffling! Why take off the only player who could hold up the ball? Two steps backwards yesterday.

    Enfield Town v Cray Wanderers

    Very very frustrating afternoon .. and in the space of 7 days we have lost our only chance of a trophy on Tuesday, and given ourselves a mountain to climb in terms of getting to Top 5. Ryan Blackman - the challenge was unnecessary, we had plenty back .. but that is the player he is. He plays with absolute commitment and is so passionate for us, so I cant criticise him. Ryan is the player who turned down Conference South teams back in 2017 to stay with us, he's the player who comes over to the fans after all games, and I bumped into him in the carpark at Kingstonian - despite being suspended he had driven 3 hours to watch the team play! How many others do that? Personally he is a Towner through and through The interview with Andy post match says that Ryan had been warned a couple of times - so to me the management at 2-1 should have taken him off as a precaution at that point. Didn't get the substitutions - Della Verde was playing v well, and then taking Ken then Billy off so we had no outlet up front was crazy - yes Billy looked tired having put in a great shift up front, so why not replace with youngster Esan to chase balls or experiecned Ibe to hold it up? Goals we conceded were very poor - the long ball over the top was a misjudge by Wethers - and Nathan was stranded - Uruquart was back so Nathan didn't need to be so far out. Throwing on extra defenders but without a plan meant we were just sitting back letting them come on to us - so it felt inevitable. Free header from a corner (Wethers again) - but no one on the post to have cleared it? Ironically I don't look at any of our defenders and think they are not good enough, but collectively they are not working together. Do we need a defensive coach to work on this side of the game? I don't subscribe to the manager out position at this stage of the season .. - we can still make the play offs, though need an almighty run like 2016. This time next week I hope this is still the case. - Andy has been making good signings in Uruqhart & Delle Verde - and I do believe the management team are committed and doing their best for us. - I believe the squad is strong on paper - especially with Hockney, Taffe and Higgs to come in - there are not 3 or 4 players that I don't want at the club. Issue is depth - we don't seem to have faith in our bench to make earlier changes BUT - we must bring someone in to sort our defensive organisation - as its not working - we must use subs better - Nathan Livings on the bench would have been a perfect replacement for Ryan after his first warning from the ref - have we invested too much of the wage bill in the starting 11 .. so less competition for places? - we aren't great to watch at present I am still "glass half full" but do understand and appreciate the more negative views - haven't been to as many games this season!

    Enfield Town v Cray Wanderers

    Before today , there has always been an excuse for the low attendances. Yesterday, Spurs were away, Arsenal didn’t play, Harringey were away, Cheshunt were away and the weather was ok (not windy or rainy) . It’s a playoff 6 pointer match and only 303 turned up. Tells you all you need to know. All the previous excuses are red herins. People are not coming because it’s simply not entertaining to watch and they have no faith in the management and team. Well we warned them pre season not to give Leese another year. The ignored us, stuck with him because he is cheap and doesn’t take a wage, this is their reward. The board are just as responsible for this dire on field situation we are in as Leese is

    Hi, unfortunately that’s football! But with our support today I think the boys had that extra support to get the result over the line. I can only apologise on behalf of the supporters that one of our fans actions was not respectful. We pride on being a friendly, supportive and loud bunch but with what you say has happened that’s not acceptable. I will have words personally in order for this to not happen again and on behalf of the club and all the supporters today we apologise. Hopefully you made a fair few ££ behind the bar today from us and we wish you the best for the rest of the season.

    Velocity cup vs Brightlingsea

    Don't really see the point of changing a manager at this stage of the season.As i said at the start of the season,if we make top 5 the managers position will be safe.If we finish 6th-8th in the league the jury will be out (but the board will probably stick by their man).If we finish 9th or below i feel the mangers position will be untenable. Lets wait and see.

    Velocity cup vs Brightlingsea

    I think that's a fair summation: we need to take stock at the end of the season, rather than do anything knee-jerk now - in my eyes Andy has until then to try to make 5th place (or at the very least mount a serious challenge for 5th place). Looking at the table, that's still well possible, and looking at our squad, it should be a realistic target. Now we're out the cup, we can focus on the league - the next 4 or so games should give us a good idea of which direction we're heading in. I'm hopeful / optimistic, but that might be more my 'glass half full' bias coming through

    All huff and no puff

    😊 The wonderful place between the "Bloody South, full of Southerners" and "Bloody North, full of Northerners". It has its oddities, including everyone in and from Birmingham, but is essentially wonderful. My home, the Black Country, is of course it's shining jewel, a place so special that JRR Tolkein based Mordor on it. One day Hornchurch will draw Stourbridge in the Trophy and I'll be 1) very happy and 2) able to watch a match that doesn't feature the whining and rolling around that seems endemic down here .
