  1. As you say CC. it does seem that Cray appear, on paper, to have the easiest run in. But I still feel there will be some surprise changes in league positions, including the top 4 , over the next couple of weeks. Looking at the up and coming fixtures many of those who aspire to make a play off place will be playing one another. As I said recently, this means some of them have to drop points. Keep an eye on Lewis and Hastings as there results may still affect the final outcome. From our point of view the about comments will only be mere conjecture if we continue to keep our form and belief. I still stand by my thought that 75pts, ie. another nine points, should get us over the line. Hopefully starting with this Saturday Home Game.
  2. Agree any points tomorrow will be welcome RWC.
  3. May I say ME TOO to the above!!! Although I would like to see us gain the 11pts referred to previously I am not adverse to having a little help from the teams around us. Having looked at the up and coming matches of those immediately above us it interesting to see who they still have to play. For example Aveley have to play away to Canvey, Haringey and EFTC. Their two home games being Bishops Stortford and Horsham. Like us none of this easy games. Even the others currently in playoff places, together with those just outside can still influence the out come. Because there are several matches in which they have to play one another. Consequently it is impossible for all of them all to make their maximum points total. That said I still hope we hold our nerve and form so that we get to at least 75 points. Which I stated in my original forecast I believed we required to make a playoff place. Unfortunately I am still not able to go to evening games but following the time change, come rain or shine, I will try to be at the remaining Saturday afternoon home games. It's certainly going to be squeaky "BUM TIME" these next few weeks. It's up to the team now. 🤞🤞
  4. I think is more attitude CC than form. We can maintain our position if everyone puts in an effort. I mean "everyone" including all the playing staff!!!! on and off the pitch. Even the league's news correspondent refers to our current plight in to days comments about tomorrows game. Amongst his observations he includes the following phrase " but Town will surely be determined to pick up three points" Perhaps his whole paragraph should be read to the players before the match!!!!
  5. Thanks LS for your explanation. Yes my interpretation was way off. Although I anticipate not being able to attend any matches I renewed my season ticket and Club Society membership. Basically to support the club and to continue my 50+ yrs support of EFC and ETFC. However, I have been happy to read and watch videos of matches on the clubs internet and this forum. Up to now I have been waiting to hear that we at least attain anther play-off position by the end of the season. It sounds that my hopes are being put on hold and I am finding it hard to believe what has been happening in recent games and the way the team is imploding. What is going on????>
  6. Sorry LS for once I am not quite sure what point you are trying to make. Normally I am usually in agreement with your comments. For me achievement is the level at which you are currently demonstrating your skills not going back to the what happened at a lower level. However I apologise if I am misinterpreting you observation.
  7. I do hope you are wrong CC. But I have the same feeling. May I refer you to my earlier post under the title " Cup Defeat".........AS there is certainly "something rotten in the State of Donkey Lane"* at the moment. What ever it is it needs fixing quickly, by the Board, as it could not only affect our league position, but club plans for the future. * With apologies to Shakespeare.
  8. Another late capitulation!!!! What's happening, has everybody taken their eye off the ball??? If so something has to be done quickly or our up and coming opponents will be rubbing their hands for some easy points.
  9. RG I think you will find we have only 8 games to play. Of which we need to win five to get to 75pts. However, what is immediately crucial to us is to win the next two away games. This is essential for everyone. Because this should keep most of the teams below us at bay until the end of the month. Certainly points off Hornchurch would be a welcome bonus. The reasoning behind my above observation is that several of those clubs nearest to us have to play one another during that period and only one can win. Although draws would be more acceptable to. Especially in the case of Canvey Island. That leaves us to contend with April which if we go into it with at least 66pts and should give us a chance to at least gain the rest required to at least get a further 9pts . On paper not an easy one for us but yet again those around us are will be playing each other. Also we play 3 of our last games at home which will be up to us to win. Each one will be like cup finals. It's certainly achievable but is the hands of the playing management and players. We can only support them and will them to give it their best shot!!!!! This could go all the way. Let's hope for a good outcome. pts
  10. I agree with you CC that AL will have to come up with something. But then you know my view which is that he is reluctant to contemplate changes. We can only hope that somehow the coaching staff can rekindle the winning mentality amongst the squad, which at the moment appears to be missing. As you say it going to be a tough run in but if the team is as strong as people have said then their pride should make them go that extra mile. I will be the first to applaud if that takes them into the play-offs.
  11. No probs WX, I was just out my frustration as to what the club's ambitions currently are?? From someone who actually attended my first Enfield FC match in 1947!!!!!! Although did not really start watching regularly until the late 60s. Doesn't time fly!!!!
  12. Then if that's the case WX we might as well go ahead with the plans, per the proposed scheme, and forget the football!!!! NO WAY!!!! If we don't get promotion or even get into the play-offs we should get back to basics and priorities attention to the playing side of the club. Back when we obtained our 99yrs lease on the QE11 I said that to sustain the running of the Stadium the club had to ensure that we had a team good enough to maintain it and meet our ambitions. Not for the want of trying that has yet to be done. But I some times feel we have taken our eye of the ball by focusing a lot of on other initiatives, as worthy as they may be. Having said that let us all hope that the current situation is soon corrected and we finally get the result we all wish for.
  13. Doesn't make good reading CC and I sympathise with your sentiments. But it was always on the cards it would happen. Having got together a squad that appeared to want to play the game on the ground, as soon as the going gets tough, AL always reverts back to his long ball game. But I said this when he first arrived . Only he knows why he keeps playing only half his attacking force at the start of each games only he knows. I would recommend CC and LS' comments near the end of the posts on the Folkestone game which summarises what has happened over the past few years perfectly. Perhaps certain people who consider us doomsters will have their say on this but it won't change what one see put in front of you. That is unless someone is willing to change. I wonder what the players think???
  14. Have very much enjoyed the recent posts by LS and CC. Between them they have summarised exactly how I have felt over the past few years. I completely concur with CC's last sentence whole heartedly and have expressed the same thoughts a number of times. Although I am proud of what the club have given to the local society I feel we should not be too side tract from acknowledging we are primarily a football club. If that goes down then so will the other cards fall.
