  1. Ah ok, thanks Theo with apologies to 4WF, read it wrong.
  2. Whilst I agree that the Manager seems reluctant to play younger players unless he's forced to, I feel you're being a bit harsh on young Nolan stating he only knocks it long. He obviously still has plenty to learn at 19 but the games I saw him in I felt his distribution was very good, yes some long kicks but his throwing out finding team-mates was excellent. Josh Davison also done very well but again I feel he was only playing as the manager had run out of options.. After doing so well towards the end of the season I reckon neither would not want to be just squad players and may be out the door
  3. According to AFC Hornchurch website, they have signed Joe Wright and Matt Johnson.
  4. Any supporter that was there last night could see what it meant to the supporters and the team to win that trophy, I certainly didn't feel like the team were playing for a 'Mickey Mouse' cup. Superb all round team performance, thought Davison was fantastic up front, thoroughly deserved his goal, he was my MoM but won't argue too much because Parcell was superb as well. Also thought Rumens had a really good game at the back, he had his hands full with their 9, but coped well and marshalled the defence all night. Totally agree with Stephs comment. Well done to Andy, Mario and all the staff. Las
  5. 4WF, you've hit the nail on the head. Everyone knows better than the person doing the actual job. I'm in the minority (obviously) because the manager has my sympathy. Now I've only spoken to him a couple of times this season and like he said to me last season when I had a chat with him he carries the can when things aren't going right. But as I said I have some sympathy for him, and I will use the last 3 games (I know there's plenty of others) as examples. Bognor, players switched off from a short corner/free kick. Haringey, player caught in possession, goal. 2 players looking at the ball in t
  6. Decent win and performance yesterday, bar the first 20 mins when I thought I might need a neck brace. After that it settled down and plenty of good passing football was played and we were worthy winners and it if hadn't been for their keeper, who I thought didn't have a bad game, it could've been more, but you can't argue with 4 goals and a clean sheet. Thought Johnson and Blackman were my MOM, ran their socks off and totally controlled the centre of the park. As mentioned previously thought Nolan did well, good distribution and handling, he got away with one near the end of the game but all r
  7. Sorry 4WF I wasn't suggesting your comments were personal against the manager, only that using that particular contributor as an impartial outsider was not the best example as we have seen him making personal comments about the manager. i appreciate your difficulties in attending games etc and I hope you are able to attend when you can because at the end of the day we all love football. Perhaps some of the other vocal critics of the manager are able to take the opinions forward. i wish you well.
  8. 4WF, I think anything on this forum by that particular contributor needs to be read carefully as there was some very personal comments made by him about the manager on one topic that is now locked. As for the manager, he still has my backing and I believe he will get it right. I find it very frustrating that some of you can't wait to get on his back when things start to go wrong and very slow to post comments when things were going better earlier in the season. Some of you haven't liked him from the start and even if had won every game this season you'd still find something to criticise
  9. Good to see the bandwagon has started up now, with the good start to the season some of you must have been disappointed that you couldn't commence your 'Leese Out' campaign earlier. Whilst the last 3 results have been disappointing, the team is still in a good position and for those that actually watched last nights game you probably came away wondering how we didn't comfortably win that game. Plenty of chances just a combination of poor finishing and a couple of decent saves by their keeper kept them in it and they achieved what they set out to do, go home with a point. The majority on here f
  10. Good work by the manager so far, seems to have got the spine of the team sorted, Wright, Tafiq, King, Blackman, Johnson, Bricknell and Wadkins. I' m sure with the rest to be added there has to be a decent optimism for the season ahead and if they all stay relatively fit could push for the top.
  11. The manager has made some decent signings so far and these things take time. Building a team is a lot like building a house, start with the foundations, then you build the rest.........
  12. With regards to the players at Enfield Borough, you have to remember that they are playing at step 6. I'm not saying they're not good guys but there is a massive difference between step 6 and step 3, I've even seen a big difference between step 3 and 4 this season. I'm a bit torn about the younger players because although they should be given a chance are they ready for a real tough season at this level or should they be loaned out to clubs at step 4 for instance to get valuable playing time. Experience is everything at this level. It is my understanding that the 3 youngsters that came from
  13. Three very different welcomes there. Thank you Steph1, isn't that what football is all about, everyone sees things differently and opinions are what makes forums and chats in the pubs great. The only point I was trying to make was that after (what I saw) a good performance and win why was there negativity about that performance. There have been plenty of poor games this season where the majority of comments are justified. I will only ever comment on what I see, not what I have heard or been told about. I can't really comment on their keeper as that's the only game I've seen him play this seaso
  14. Congratulations to those above who have managed to factor in some negative comments about Saturday's game, which was imo 95% dominated by ETFC. I mean really, complaining about the types of goals scored now in an attempt to create the negativity, is this what it has come to. Did you comment how unlucky the team was against leatherhead who scored a deflected free kick to hand them the win, probably not. On the point about loan players, agree it is not the best scenario as they can be recalled as soon as they arrive, but sometimes things work out for the better, as I believe they did with Aaron
  15. Decent performance today from the team, well done to Andy and Darren in what must have been a tough game for Andy given his recent personal loss. Played some good passing football at times and looked solid in defence. Credit to Lowestoft who despite their troubles, never gave up and looked liked they had a few youngsters out. Nice cameo from Hockney in the last 15 minutes who looked good on the ball and passed well, very unselfish in giving Hope his goal. Deserved MOM for Blackman, does that guy ever stop running!! Well done all.
