  1. He's a ball winning midfield player, sometimes he's going to be late, if his tackles were bang on perfect timing wise, he'd a professional footballer. I'd rather have him in our team than playing for the opposition. Andy should have taken him out of the fire, he didn't.
  2. I agree with your sentiment 4WF regarding Ryan and because of his style of play, a red was always on the cards. But to book a player in the third minute for an innocuous challenge means that he doesn't really stand a chance of seeing out the rest of the game. I agree that he should have been subbed to protect him from the possible second yellow but the blame should be placed at the managers door for not managing the situation, not at Ryan's, he's been one of our stand out performers this season. Again, we've been let down by poor officials who should be spending their time doing other things on a Saturday afternoon rather than making money at our expense because they are ruining football matches !!
  3. Agree with Theo, not the greatest spectacle but a real end to end game. The atmosphere created was tremendous by both sets of supporters and had a real derby feel to it. I hope chesthunt stay up as I'd love two more games against them next season !
  4. Dross you say ? It was total garbage ! The free kick was a lovely thing but over the 90, we were awful. We need to set up 442 as we have 2 good wingers in Bawling and Della Verde who can cross a ball but they have to hug the touchlines.
  5. On an absolute mudbath of a pitch and where we were marginally outplayed by a useful PB team, they could be 3 invaluable points come the end of the season. Our first was an own goal and the second a terrible mistake by the keeper albeit Brickell finished it with aplomb. Great turnout by the faithful, I'd say about 200 of us. Albeit Mo didn't play, he was there as a spectator and was given a good send off by the supporters. He wasn't able to tell us which club he's joining but I'm favouring the Plymouth rumour. I personally wish him all the best, he's been great for our club and he leaves us with lots of good memories. For the attention of Father Jack, is she ok ?
  6. It will be interesting to see if he plays tomorrow considering the amount of interest.
  7. Well, considering they came to the dome with a very impressive record, that was the thumping that I've been waiting to see us dish out to somebody today. For 90 minutes we dominated and got our just desserts. Six, not five as the ref would have you believe, very good goals were witnessed by a very thin crowd considering the prestige of the game. Never mind, I was there and I enjoyed it with 200 odd other hardy souls ! Keep this run going Andy, I love eating humble pie !
  8. We played into their hands for the first 90 minutes and got what we deservered, a very lucky draw. Extra time, we continued in the same vein and went 2-1 down. Andy played a masterstroke and put Sam Hatton on at right back and he changed the game ! At last we had that marauding full back charging down the line and wanting to send that cross into the box. We were brilliant in extra time and really deserved the win. Well done Andy and the boys, we beat a nasty , shitty little team tonight !
  9. I 'm really pleased that you enjoyed your day out. I'm impressed with your comment above as you reacted with a fair comment for a change. We'll see you soon for the second leg when we're in the champions spot !
  10. Albeit Cheshunt will never be a derby for us ( it is for them obviously ), they brought a good support and a team that was definitely up for it but Edwards always does, doesn't he ? It was a tight game with their keeper keeping them in it in my opinion but our superior finishing won the game. Well done Andy Leese and team, you are giving us something to believe in at last. Long may it continue !
  11. Our form going into this game was very good. For me , it was a bad day at the office with too many of the team having a bad game and having a weak bench.
  12. CC, I agree wholeheartedly but ultimately if the players don’t carry out his instructions, then he can’t have an influence on the game.
  13. I was at the game on Saturday and even though I am one of AL's biggest critics, I don't think that he can be held responsible for Saturday's result. Missing 3 key players and then losing Taffe after 5 minutes won't have helped. Our biggest problem was that the 11 on the pitch didn't seem up for it I'm afraid.
  14. We should have video footage as all home games are filmed 4WF.
  15. The first yellow, for simulation, was a stonewall penalty. I was 4 yards away from it. I didn't see the second. I really feel for the players at this level as they are constantly let down by atrocious officials who should be plying their trade in the local park on a Sunday morning ! !
  16. Chaney was my favourite player last season. Surely we can offer him a deal that's worthwhile for him to join us again ?
  17. I thought that the better team lost today. We are far to slow in moving the ball forward because we receive it and look for the pass, normally sideways or backwards. We have nobody within the team who is willing to get their foot on the ball and move forward with it and take a player on. Ultimately we get frustrated and kick it long and give back possession. I'd love to see a Billy Crook type player back in the centre of the midfield. Albeit I wasn't Dan Rumens biggest fan, I'm surprised that we let him leave given that Glen ( I don't know his surname ) has been injured ever since he got here and we haven't got a replacement. Jon Muleba is wasted as a cover centre half ! Got out of jail today.
  18. Can't comment as I was at Southend yesterday watching my beloved Blackpool - post Oyston.
  19. I think that we'll be ok to be fair. I didn't want the manager to stay but I've seen all the home friendlies and we've played two up top and kept it on the floor. The additions to the team are as good as what we've lost but the one position that we haven't strengthened, is replacing Dan Rumens with a solid centre half. If we do that, then I think that we'll be there or thereabouts come the end of the season, so long as the manager doesn't resort back to hoofball !
  20. I've heard that Mickey is also off to Hornchurch.
  21. agree wth your summation. I can't understand why Matt Nolan isn't being talked about, he had a very good end to the season and looked a more complete keeper than Joe.
  22. We're caught between the devil and the deep blue sea here. We've just witnessed 2 seasons of the dullest football that I've ever witnessed. Do you really think that Andy Leese is going to change his approach this season and deliver decent attacking football ? I've had a season ticket for 5 seasons but I'm not getting one this season, I'll pay as I go as I'm pretty certain as to what is going to be delivered. Whilst wanting to help to finance and support the club, I'm not going to pay to watch shit football for the third season on the trot.
  23. The cynic in me could suggest that they are waiting to see the outcome of both Euro finals with both Spurs and Arsenal being involved.If they both win their respective trophies and if everybody is in high spirits, it makes it a little easier to keep the manager for another season doesn't it ? If we'd have got what we wanted, it would have happened by now in my opinion.
  24. Like you did on the last couple of occasions that we played you? If I were you I'd be soiling myself.
