  1. Audrey darling! Calm down dear! You're getting yourself all paranoid. You know I'm not LS. I'm Spartacus (when you fancy a bit of rough) and Ich bin ein Berliner (when you're up for a bit of culture). You big saucepot, you.
  2. Audrey dearest! How very remiss of you! Have you forgotten so soon? We never live it down darling. We always live it up. Kisses as always.
  3. I can see why you say that LS, but I think Paul meant that he hopes we start next season strongly with a few wins so that we don't need to play catch-up later in the season in order to get into the play-off places.
  4. According to Lewes tweet the games off due to potential travelling problems.
  5. Still not happy at being clapped from a distance at the end of the game though. Shook Billy's hand, but only because he had to walk past us after being subbed. Ryan didn't even play, but still came over to shake hands.
  6. If I were a MOTD pundit, I'd use one word sentences: "Passion." "Commitment." "Purpose."
  7. In the immortal words if Alex Ferguson: "Football! Bloody hell!" On this performance Enfield have made me hope again. And it's the hope that causes all the pain! Aargh!!!!

  9. Initial thoughts: their keeper stopped it from being 5 or 6. Really good performance from him. Best I've seen this season. We played some really good football on the ground. Lewis really made a difference. Great to have him back. Ken's goal was great! I thought he was going to lose it, but he somehow conjured up a bit of magic!
  10. But, do you know what? Part of me would love it just as much OR EVEN MORE if our players did the Beveren thing (that used to be the Enfield thing). You know what I mean. (If you don't, forget it! You just don't get non-league football)
  11. We've certainly covered a fair amount of ground on this thread! I'm not going to go over the same ground, but I will pick up on one element - the falling attendances - and offer an alternative perspective. I'm not suggesting that other reasons are wrong - I'm sure they're not, but what hasn't been mentioned on this forum is something which was highlighted on Twitter the other day by Beveren: all their players did what only Ryan Blackman currently does here: shake hands with/hug fans after the game. I can remember when I first started following ETFC (when they moved to Donkey Lane) I love
  12. Let's say, for argument's sake, that from the 1st minute until the 12th minute of the match against Bognor (in terms of the alphabet A = 1, L = 12) everyone behind the goal (which is where all the noise comes from) turned their backs to the pitch and kept quiet. That would be a massive message from dedicated fans and the sort of thing which could be escalated. I"m not suggesting this SHOULD happen. I'm just saying that if enough people felt strongly enough, a movement for change could be created in some way or another. Rather that than whinge, whinge, whinge.
  13. I should perhaps have clarified my previous post as far as "From mighty oaks..." is concerned. It is of course, wrong. It was supposed to be wrong. What I meant to convey (and failed to) was that Lee was/is a mighty oak and from him acorns have been created, which have grown into the mighty Ultras!!!
  14. Personally I'm getting a bit fed up with the constant wingeing. I don't like AL, either as a manager or as a conversationalist whenever I've spoken to him. I remember posting that he should go when I got fed up at how he failed to 'get' Mickey Parcell. But what's the point of keep moaning? I remember being behind the goal in the days before the Ultras and the atmosphere was dead. Lee posted a brilliant, rallying message on this forum before an away friendly against Potters Bar. We met up in a pub there before the game and, to cut a long story short, the Ultras were born. They've evolved a
  15. Well, that was rubbish, wasn't it? Oh...hang on!!!! 😁 (Can't wait to see how the moaners are going to find the negatives in this! 🤔 Only drawing the first half, perhaps? Mo not getting on the score sheet again?)
  16. "we were comprehensively outplayed for the first 45 minutes". No we weren't. They were better than us. Not the same thing. "soft penalty"? Nailed on in my opinion.
  17. Personally, I'm still glass quarter full. I can understand all the negative comments and don't necessarily disagree with them. But we were playing a club above us and we COULD have gone in ahead at half time. Their goalie made one sensational save, and Ken was in good positions on two or three occasions. Ken isn't Mo, let's face it, but at least it meant the team had got the ball to Ken in decent positions. As for the second half of the second half well, as I said to begin with, my glass is a quarter full.
  18. One step forward at the weekend, two steps back last night. Another two goals shipped against a relegation candidate. The highlight was Nathan coming up at the end and getting a header on target. To be honest, he might as well stay up front for the rest of the season since he doesn't actually have a defence in front of him anyway.
  19. Have to say I really enjoyed the atmosphere! Good luck for the rest of the season!
  20. Well, on the one hand, for the second weekend running we conceded two goals against relegation candidate and made it impossible for someone not already in the know to tell which of the two teams were in with a chance of the play-offs and which might go down. However, on the other hand, I saw some definite improvements over last Saturday's game. We played the ball on the ground much more. (Gosh! Should I really have to write this? Shouldn't it be a given?) And also there were a few nice moves, the likes of which we haven't seen for a while. We also saw another class goal from Billy and th
  21. Audrey! Lightening up! You absolute scamp, you! I'd never have guessed you had it in you! (By the way, you are refering to that orifice described in Ed Sheeren's 'New Man', aren't you?). How terribly exciting!!! But did it hurt? And do you really have no regrets? (Where's your dignity for goodness sake!).
  22. Ooh! Auds! Miaow! Careful sweetie or you're liable to catch cat scratch fever. Let's be friends you little sausage.
  23. No way Andy! It was Mo's parting gift 🙂. He sprinkled a little bit more of his magic around the Donkey Dome and lo and behold...we get double the points! Add them together at season's end and we're champions! 😂 Cheers Mo! 👍
  24. Audrey! Honeybuns! Just when I thought I'd managed to get over you, you wend your wicked way back, whispering words of wisdom, as I wonder why your wily ways work their wonder. And they do, dumpling, they do. (Sigh!). But of what cup dost thou speak, pumpkin? Could it be the 'Delusions Of Grandeur Cup', fluffy bunnykins? Or the 'Audrey Walker's Crisps Trophy', poppet? Oh, do tell! You're SUCH a tease!
  25. A little perspective might be in order: no easy games in the Middlesex Charity Cup (er, unless they're against us, that is). And anyway, now we can, um, 'concentrate on the league'.
