  1. Thanks for the input guys ? what a joke this forum has turned into ?
  2. well three pre season matches completed what does everyone think so far…. Cockfosters a scrappy game on a dreadful dry sand dune of a pitch where LDV stood out a mile….then a really impressive defensive display against Spurs where I was really impressed with the young keeper constantly organising the defence …then the struggle against a really good Maidstone side on a pitch which must give them a massive home advantage with our players slipping and not turning on it…. Worried about Scott Thomas … his poor passing continued from early last season … quite like Frempah who seems composed and also Lucas Jordan who came on and actually attacked the defence something that had been lacking with no LDV…. We really need a flair player who can run at defences… Taffe ..Sam and Thomas gives us a very static midfield…. Looks like we could have a bigger squad than usual and we will learn more from games against teams from our level…..
  3. Great …we could get Peter Crouch…. The only man tall enough to reach Nathan’s punts…..
  4. If we continue with Andy and Mario I’m afraid that will show a complete lack of ambition…. I don’t think I can stand another season travelling miles to watch that dross… can you imagine playing National League hoofing the ball miles in the air and defending like a circus team with no organisation or tactics…. Thanks Andy and Mario we had some fun this year but if we are to progress we need a total overhaul of the way we play….. Enfield are a big club in this division… maybe not in attendances but certainly a place where good players would want to come… the stadium the support and run by good people…. We have seen what can be done with lesser players but great organisation with Cheshunt… now it’s our turn… let’s get that great organisation and tactical awareness with our quality players and let’s move forward….
  5. Not sure how to post the link but this is the page
  6. Three down two up minus Bognor and Casuals who are apparently moving to Tooting…..
  7. I don’t blame Joe for celebrating … our supporters have no respect for returning players… even Mark Kirby got relentless abuse… if you can abuse Kirbs then there is something wrong…. Though obviously running on the pitch is unforgivable but tensions do run high at times….
  8. Amazing results you have had…. Gutted to miss out Monday but certainly not gutted to miss out on promotion… it’s all about big fish small ponds or small fish big pond … even our amazing support would drain if we we were losing regular…. the challenge will be exciting but that will soon wear off ….
  9. The atmosphere made up for a poor game on a dreadful pitch … any football was impossible…. Joke defending was our downfall as it has been on numerous occasions… of course players are responsible for their performances but again I ask what was Nathan doing… this was happening in front of him in front of goal as a senior player he has to be more vocal … losing was bad but missing out on a promotion playoff with Cheshunt is pretty sick…. Missing out on promotion isn’t the end of the world… travelling longer distances with the probable relegation battle is not that appealing as Cheshunt or Hornchurch will find out… when we are ready it will happen…..
  10. Eleven players thrown on the pitch again with absolutely no tactics or shape… the organisation at the back is laughable… what’s Nathan doing… it’s happening right in front of him but he is silent like every other player on the pitch and those on the bench…. Opponents standing with not a marker near them and nothing…. All decent players (that’s why we are where we are ) but nobody having a clue where they should be at the back…. Twelve clean sheets in a row for Stortford… brilliant coaches and organisation and it’s what we should be aiming for …… still Jakes goal was worth the entry fee just a shame that piece of brilliance was cancelled out by joke defending…. Tactically we are a joke … probably the worst organised team at least in the top half …thankfully and credit to Andy we have a squad good enough and has managed to get points from the shambles…..
  11. Looking very likely a play off home or away to Hornchurch and after their showing against us and last nights scrappy win against a poor Cheshunt side isn’t something to worry about…. It’s all looking good…..
  12. Leese is a genius…to get six wins on the bounce at this stage of the season is quite an incredible feat…. First half was really hard going with the same starting line up and same tactics nothing happened either end…. The game all changed when LDV came on and his corner was headed home by Jerry… that and the introduction of Cass really bought about an onslaught which could have brought about further goals including a spectacular run by Mo which faltered right at the vital moment…. Leese has made some tough calls… leaving LDV on the bench for Taffe must be really hard and although Adam has really grown on me recently his effort in every game is faultless the monotonous high balls pumped towards him bared little reward….. Andy has also got the full backs right and their contribution often goes unnoticed… so that’s it… the playoffs are as good as settled and the manager can say stuff you to all his critics ……
  13. Cheshunt FC….The only club that announces the changes in the crowd before each match ?…. Got to work until 3 tomorrow so hoping to join you two behind the goal for the second half…
  14. YEP….1997 Towners and 3 Chestnut boys..
  15. As the rebel said it was a wind game of two halves…first half long balls ..flick ons .. long throws… perfect for us… a Young’s flick on met by a Cunnington side foot in gave us the perfect start.. the second was thanks to a Sam Young’s scream of the season… the ref wasn’t even looking but the scream was enough for him to point to the spot… Second half different game… our long balls not reaching the half way line and our passing going astray… no surprise to see Mo miss again from the spot… how many misses is that ?? ….with that ridiculous run up there is no power and no height …if the keeper guesses right it’s an easy save…. or in this case yards wide….results going our way helps alleviate the pain of a dreadful half of football and with the top teams still playing each other things are really looking good for the play offs..
  16. I was saying the same thing although I knew we couldn’t defend… personally I would keep Leese because he seems to be able to get players in .. they seem to like him but as a tactician he struggles….bring in two young coaches to organise things on the pitch like Stortford… it was an eye opener… there are so many times the oppo has a free man standing right in front of the dugout and no one shouts a word… and surely Nathan must take some blame for not organising things in front of him … he can see everything… but how many on here expected us to be second come February … it’s been great entertainment all season ….
  17. Standing behind the Stortford dugout last Tuesday at Potters Bar I witnessed a superb coaching display by their young coaches ( the manager leaving it to them) every player had a role and the coaches directed every movement… I turned to the bloke next to me who was a board member and sponsor (an ex England cricketer) and said to him “ we haven’t a hope in hell against you Saturday “…. This was coaching at another level…. He seemed surprised but I told him at the start of the season I was searching betting firms to get a bet on us being relegated… we were awful pre season with no players and no hope…. God knows how we were now second… Let’s be honest… the only way we are second is because Andy Leese has got together a load of talented individuals thrown them on the pitch and basically said just go and score more than the oppo… there are no tactics… it’s a mish mash of chaos… but I must admit it’s been fun… Thurrock 8 goals… Kingstonian 5…. Horsham Cray Bowers 4 … fantastic entertainment… I’m surprised it’s taken this long to come unstuck but I don’t think it would have worked any other way….We were never going to win the league but that play off place is still well within our grasp and who on here expected that at the start of the season…
  18. Well done for a great result… My comment ain’t changing on the back of a good result… Cheshunt are just an annoying fly buzzing around… soon it will be swatted and never seen again.. the fans make a club and to be honest there is more atmosphere in my pants than at your ground… and as for the away support well it’s virtually non existent…..as been stated spend your winnings on creating a forum so you two can talk between you and how about investing in a new tea bar where you don’t queue and miss half the second half… enjoy the moment as you plummet down the league ?….
  19. Obviously not one person on this site went to the game… waste of time trying to get any conversation or feedback… Last post on here … come on you town !!!
  20. Unfortunately couldn’t make Bognor so waiting for a decent match report… Keep the faith TCC I will be very disappointed if we don’t get 9 points from those three games.. we always have trouble on the south coast but Potters Bar and Cray are not in our league and let Cheshunt enjoy their moment in the sun… they are a two bob outfit on a good run… our attack will batter them… 9 points then all will seem good again….
  21. I used to moan about the negative style of Andy Leese with the immobile big front man but now we have a young quick unpredictable attacking style and it’s exciting to watch… it’s not going to come easy but we get our money’s worth…. We try to shore up the defence but in doing that we sacrifice LDV for long periods of the game…. ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK as the ultras sing… let’s just enjoy the season and see where we finish…..
  22. To be honest most games we come out flying as we did yesterday…. We will lose games as every club will… remember FIFC lost 0-5 recently….clubs will find their position after a long season and I definitely think we are top five…..
  23. I think Rebel summed it up perfectly…. They did seem to have players everywhere….They flew down the left turning jon and Jere inside out…. When you keep giving free kicks and corners away sooner or later it will result in a goal…. Strange decision to replace Jon with Adam C knowing the problems down that side and their third was a carbon copy of about six goals conceded this year…. Free on the left cross to an unmarked forward in the middle of the goal…. Passing again awful but as Rebel stated we won’t come up against a better side…. After we got our second the in next fifteen minutes I think the ball was moving about five minutes… people lying everywhere… Subs …trainers on the lot… how on earth did we get less than three minutes injury time… just as Adam flicked it on to Mo the ref blew… I thought that was shocking….results around us pretty much lessened the blow with only Two of the top ten winning…
  24. They must have been disappointed with the crowd LH as they had 350 for a previous match and they got that with us having 150+….. Thought Sam was excellent in difficult conditions and Harold never missed a ball… scrappy first half … just why Sams goal was disallowed I don’t know after the ref gave a goal…. Highlight was the great first goal… what control and finish…. Moments like that separate the best from the others…
