    Town v Corinthian Casuals

    Don't know why my post of yesterday has come up again, but then I am not that computer literate. Sorry for inconvenience. But whilst I am on again I would like to give my Pulitza Prize of the week to Aaron Patel for his official report of yesterdays game. No wonder the management think everything is OK. Factually his comments on shots , saves etc were possibly accurate but there was no mention that we never came within a mile of the Casuals movement and interplay. For which I commend their manager/coach. Very rarely did they miss a pass by hoofing the ball 70yds down the ground. The way they played their football I WISH IT HAD BEEN US.!!!!!!!! Unfortunately, like main stream journalism today, observations seem to be given to appease the few and do not serve to inform the majority. As members/supporters I think we are capable accepting both. After all we can see what is happening.

    Town v Corinthian Casuals

    I cannot agree more with the last two posts. Welcome lads to the reality. I want as much as anyone for this club to succeed. To gain another promotion in my lifetime what make me happy. But too many are happy with the status quo. We have have chosen to go down the road of self management so we will have to face up to the reality of what that means. We have to raise more income to resource a better team and manager if we are to go forward. For example we could start by raising a share debenture in the club. But that is if you want it be a Football Club or a Social Drinking Club with a football team. The choice is yours,

    Town v Corinthian Casuals

    As MTH said I too will continue supporting the club since it's hard to break a many many years habit , but on an occasional basis until things change. To me sport should be entertaining ,or at least show some attempt to be so at what ever level. As say this because there are people volunteering time of the pitch to help the club achieve something. They at least should be able to expect that the paid playing management etc within the club try to meet their expectations. I regret that from what I have seen in the past 18 months is amongst the worst football I have ever watch from an Enfield side. As for OT observation I'm afraid the refs are not an excuse for our players weeks on end trying to see who can belt the ball the highest. But then you must see things differently.

    Town v Corinthian Casuals

    Sorry that you are feeling under the whether Theo, but I too left when the Referee unfortunately got injured. I have little to say that I haven't said many times before and I certainly cannot add to THeo's and CC's comments. Other than that I believe there are some players in our squad who, given the right leadership, are good enough to bring success to the club. But I am afraid no matter how he excuses himself AL and his coaching staff are not adequate for the task. No wonder the ground was voted No1 we will never wear the grass out playing as we do. I have seen U10's string more passes. I await the Politza Book prize contributions who can convince me otherwise.

    We're in a Cup semi-final - anybody notice?

    Yes FJ, any cup semi is a good achievement and any win is a good win. I only hope Josh's hat trick does not become his death knell like most of our youngster over the passed 18 months. I look forward to him making a start on Saturday but don't hold your breath.

    RIP Nick.

    VERY SAD news, especially for someone of his age. Sympathy to his family. RIP

    Merstham v Enfield Town

    Well said Andy, now let's hope we start concentrating on the important matter of winning games. That said, I often think what modern teams would say if they had to play with leather laced footballs and muddy pitches. In some instances they even now play on pitches like snooker tables. I also wonder how much Len Shackleton and Tom Finney would be worth under the present regime and how the current £200K a week stars would have coped against them. God I'm getting old!!!!!!

    Merstham v Enfield Town

    LH I have read the Mersham report and have noted their comments but this does not deter me from my main point. In fact if you had taken the time to read what I said in my previous comment I was willing to accept that on Saturday we probably had some bad luck. In fact I would go as far as to say that what was said or not said bares little consequence to the result. However, once again you seem to find it difficult to offer up any kind of comment on my main concerns. ( See quote above). Regarding " Huffing and Puffing" it was not in Theo's previous post (Singular) just prior to mine 21hrs ago. I really must ask you again to read things more carefully before jumping in.

    Merstham v Enfield Town

    LH I have read it and to be honest I would have probably written a similar report if I held Ken's position. In no way do I suggest that what he writes is anything other than a true reflection on each game as he sees it. As for other press outlets 72W I would not be surprised if he sends copy to various ones for publication. That is what Press Officers do. File match reports and obtain publicity and I believe Ken represent the club to the press admirably. However, my comments arose from what has been said by other contributors. Yesterdays result was probably due in part to bad luck but our win ratio in tight games cannot always be put down to this. I therefore concluded that we still have to find a way to correct this if we are to really progress. LH and 72W I would recommend to you the contents of the previous post by THEO, which although you may find unpalatable, I find acceptable as it comes from a concerned and dedicated supporter.

    Merstham v Enfield Town

    Quite an interesting number of comments. Although I was unable to be there on Saturday reading the last few observations shows the frustration of many supporters. LH dismissed it a one of those days. Where as it was more like deja vu in that we have failed to score against Mersham at all this season. In fact I don't think we have beaten them in the last three seasons. So no surprise there. Theo, comment that "we huffed and puffed" and Steph's remarks, which suggest we were unable to adjust to the size of their pitch brings me back to an earlier post I made. That is we although we may have enough defenders and attackers what we are still crying out for is play makers. We have industrious midfield players but still have no one who can control play by the use of several give and go short passes to slow the game down until an opening occurs. In fact the only one I have seen in recent years is Billy Crook. The present format is to try long cross field passes which have a limited expectancy of success. CC sums it up well when he says Haringey have so far achieved by having an organised and settled side. I would also add an ability to vary their pattern of play. In our case we have become to one dimensional and therefore predictable. If that serves us to obtain a play off place all well and good. But unless we see a change of play, especially in the midfield area, it will be difficult for us to achieve. All depends how we go about it. That said w can still hope for another winning sequence to start this week and for the other teams around us to continue cancelling out one and other.

    EXPERIENCED STRIKER JOINS TOWN

    I thought he was away for longer even so he will need a little time to gear himself up.
  13. 4wembleyfinals

    EXPERIENCED STRIKER JOINS TOWN

    Yes it's a shame LH. Again the time for the healing process for a toe is similar to that of a metatarsal depending upon which toe it relates to. In any event it would not be wise for him to contemplate renewing training before he is advised to so. As it appears was at last weeks game one can hopefully assumes it was not a big toe as this can take much longer to repair.
  14. 4wembleyfinals

    EXPERIENCED STRIKER JOINS TOWN

    Agree Barney, but if as reported MO has broken a metatarsal, then even allowing for his age, it would be normal for him take at least 6/8 weeks for the bone to heal before he renews training. However, depending on the nature of the break, some young people have been known to recover within a month. But unfortunately this is not the norm. So we will have to wait and see how Mo gets on and wish him a speedy recovery.

    EXPERIENCED STRIKER JOINS TOWN

    Probably a prudent signing in the circumstances. It cannot be doubted that Kezie has gained vast experience over the years but time has taken it's toll on his recent playing and goal scoring record. Because of this and in fairness to AL I feel he has made it clear, by his comments following the signing, that it may prove to be only temporary whilst we are short staffed due to injuries. Nether the less, let's hope Kezie has a reincarnation and surprises us all!!!

    Lewes

    In the clear light of dawn I feel that I should be a little more welcoming to an additional point gained. But as I have said before we must be more positive in our approach in 50/50 games if we are to retain or improve our position. Let's hope that Andy proves right and that we are indeed looking for a replacement for MO to off set his enforced absence. At the same time I am sure we all wish him a speedy recovery to fitness and to be back playing soon. As Theo rightly inferred Mo certainly brings a new dimension to the team.
  17. 4wembleyfinals

    Lewes

    Tend to agree Theo, but yet again we were unable to get the win at home. Perhaps it was because we were back to Bricknell having to ploughing his own field up front. Yes we had one player supporting him from behind (Youngs) but hardly ever along side. The one exception was our goal when Billy played it off to him. I had hoped that after having seen what happens when two strikers play off one another we would have at least started with the same set up but that was wishful thinking. However, with Mo's projected two month absence, I hope that there is some truth in the rumour that another striker is being considered to step into his role. Thankfully, once again other results conspired to be in our favour but we cannot rely on that every week. We cannot continue with just drawing at home if we are to stay in the play-off positions. So far we have had 6 draws out of 12 home games played. Even if two of them had been converted into wins they would have us in 2nd place and within striking distance of Haringey. The next few weeks are going to be crucial and I sincerely hope we meet the challenge.

    Lewes

    Happy new year to you DJW and to all fellow supporters. I hope that AL continues with the December formation, even after MO's unfortunate set back. After all it has given everyone encouragement. Both players and supporters a like. What ever I am looking forward to tomorrows game.

    Where are they now?

    Seems that there are now a few clubs who have shirts with TO's name on them, in the New Year sales, at very discounted prices!!!!!!
  20. 4wembleyfinals

    Where are they now?

    Andy, I was commenting on Brandons ability to score goals when given playing time. Yes I know that Ware are in a lower division, but when did we ever see him play for any length of time or indeed, if ever, along side Billy Bricknell? Almost none, consequently we never saw enough of him to " appreciate " his potential.
  21. 4wembleyfinals

    Where are they now?

    Yes I saw that RG but refrained from making a comment. This is because having seen our new forward acquisition, as I have said, I will delay judgement until I have seen more of him. What I have seen has me totally confused but perhaps that is how he plays. Must say Brandon seems more appreciated at Ware than at ETFC.
  22. 4wembleyfinals

    Town v Harlow

    Yes Andy, we started well but as you say still some way to go. Reserve my judgement on new forward. Probably a bit harsh but he seemed a little bit out of his depth and no better than the young players let go. Most of whom never got the chance to play in to days formation. But Billy Bricknell made up for that and put in a lot of hard work up front besides his two goals. WE will have to see what the new year brings when we have to play the other challengers. But still another win is another win.

    Bognor Regis Town v Enfield Town

    Thank LH for your report. Much appreciated.
  24. 4wembleyfinals

    Bognor Regis Town v Enfield Town

    WE will never know Steph but by the laws of probability a win had to happen sometime. As I said earlier,when commenting on another topic, I don't care how or how it was achieved we won. It does not exonerate AL but it sounds that he has at last tried something different. Hope this is just the beginning of his and our renaissance. I await next Saturday.
  25. 4wembleyfinals

    New striker signs

    I totally agree CC but we will have to see what happens. AL said that he was signed due to Liam's absence because of work commitments. This contains the suggestion that he will used in the same fashion. I sincerely hope not. I repeat we will have to wait and see. Actually I gone past waiting to see if he can formulate a plan "B". I will accept any win how ever achieved. Even a draw would be a step forward.
