    OldTowner reacted to 53 seasons in Tommy Lawrence   
    I started watching Enfield because I heard at school about their 'Roy of the Rovers' centre forward called Tommy Lawrence. His playing and management record combined must make him the greatest ever servant of Enfield FC?  So sad to lose him and Tony Jennings within such a short space of time. Thanks for great times and wonderful memories watching your teams.

    OldTowner got a reaction from MbrunoB in Farnborough v Enfield Town - match fred   
    Interesting at Beveren yesterday.
    Their league match had 2 officials - Ref and one Lino.
     
    So for the first time ever seeing a one Lino game, we saw two in two days.
    Weird or what !!!

    Not going to say......told you so, but go back up these posts.
     
    Quote me.expect a tough game.
    Vines scores goals against us.
     
    Very poor performance.
    No real energy from Town.
    Out fought all over the pitch.
     
    Why does Bobby take pens, how many has he scored, how many missed ?
     
    Credit Thamesmead for doing a good job on us.
     
    Poor Towners I am afraid.

    Amazing, poor comments from "some" Hitchin supporters about our win and style.
    Sour grapes or what.
    Funny no mention about Frendo and their 8 with their bully boy tactics !!
     
    In fairness, a few confirm we "wanted it more"
    Good as it gets.
     
    Ha Ha.
    Cash the £7.500 cheque and off to Chesham we go.

    So, you are looking for a Supporter / Chairman / Owner, who will be a Member and run the Club with his ( or her ) money, but let the supporters elected Board run the Supporters Owned Club.

    OldTowner got a reaction from Plumstead Blue in FA Trophy v Grays   
    Strong words Plumstead Blue, ......strong words indeed, but on balance.....I am afraid not far off being spot on.
     
    A toothless performance.
    Lack-luster approach.
    Very poor attitude.
    No Leadership on ( or off ) the field of play.
    Downright Poor
     
    And against a Grays side who, by their own fans admission, are not exactly brilliant !!
     
    Some are calling for the Managers Head...however, was he responsible for :-
     
    1, The totally idiotic free kick given away in front of the lino, 1.0m from the line with the Grays man facing the running track.
    What a stupid act of defending.
     
    2, Being totally unable to defend a ball whacked across aimlessly and with 10 Town players in the box, not one could get on the end and clear it, let alone allowing the ball to deflect of a defender into the net.
     
    Surely the answer has to be no ?
     
    Surely the Players need to look at themselves and at that very poor level of performance ?
     
    As for the Team selection leaving Liam on the bench and then giving him just 25 mins, well, others can comment.
     
    Far too many Players with poor attitude and more than one playing out of position.
     
    Much needed cash for a supporters run Club....GONE - Nothing now until next season.
     
    Next 3 League matches are BIGGER than the Cup game today, as they will set the scene for the rest of our Season.

    There are a few comments on here regarding the low budget.
    My understanding from Steve's prog notes are that the budget has been increased over last season.
     
    Well dear Supporter of a Supporters Club, if you want the Manager to have a bigger budget, support the club in every way you can, ie not just the Saturday fixture.
     
    Support the Bar.
    Support the Social side.
    Support the Commercial side
    Book Butler's for an event.
    Get your work place to sponsor the Club, a match, the ball anything.
    Spread the word that Town actually play football in ENFIELD.
    Etc
    Etc.
     
    Supporters run Clubs like ours, need funding.
     
    Yes, wins on the pitch and entertaining football will help, but to get that we need better players and that costs money.
     
    All a bit chicken and egg really.

    Thanks.
    Some good views from outside of the Club.
     
    I for one am certainly not calling for heads to roll, I just think we need some fresh blood in the squad.
    Management Board and Team Management do need to act on this as the current squad is undoubtedly short in quality and certainly numbers.
     
    Tuesday is the start of the 2nd part of our season.

    Hope supporters will not mind, but I think it would be a great gesture to dedicate this win and promotion to two of the Clubs, Great Guys.
     
    Roy and Ron.
     
    Sure they were both looking down on our big day with a smile.

    Forget the 3 - 0 win last Saturday and lets start new game with a good, large supportive attendance.
    We need 100's and 100's there cheering on the Town.
     
    Fresh game - fresh start.

    OldTowner got a reaction from Barney in Questions.   
    A few interesting questions raised on other threads about player selection, substitutions, new players and players that have left.
     
    We will all have our opinions, but none count, so we may as well get on with it and support the team selected.
     
    We have 6 tough League games and obviously staying second would assist in what we hope will be TWO play off FINALS.
     
    So, EIGHT games, EIGHT wins and we are there.
     
    I, like everyone else, have an opinion, but we all need to support the Club, the Manager and the TEAM over these next EIGHT GAMES starting next week against a tough Harlow team..
     
    Everyone, get behind the Team.
     
    As someone once said, it's a funny old game, so you never know what may happen to Leiston in the next few weeks, who knows, perhaps they wil relax !!
     
    Come on Towners.

    For what it's worth - in my opinion Jey is the best left sided attacking mid-field player we have.
    In that position, he can defend, but also attack all the way down the wing, cross and has a knack of scoring.
    He would be in my team.
     
    I am sure others will have their opinions.

    I hope Jay is not the one to be dropped - could do with Jay pushing forward. Sweet crosser.

    That's true. Lee Allen seems to have been forgotten as a midfielder! And as we are without Pennant, it might be worth a re-shuffle. I'd like to see Lockie back in the team also for his energy and forward runs.
     
    Decisions Mr Newing!
