    Rhys reacted to LukeXIX in Sunday 30th Bank Holiday Fun!   
    Dear All, 
    Apologies for the confusion yesterday with this but I can now confirm this is going ahead!! This year unfortunately the annual cricket game cannot go ahead due to certain restrictions put on the cricket club by the ECB so instead we have something different planned.....
    Sunday 30th August at the football club the bar will be open and there will be a bbq on the go too! We will also have rounders set up on the pitch as well as access to a quick cricket set. 

    This is a family event so bring your friends, bring your children, bring you family and let’s raise some funds for the football club as well as having a good time and a laugh! Any questions let me know, Luke.

    I think the only sensible option is to resolve the rest of the fixtures by rock, paper, scissors.
    Each player faces their opposing player on the teamsheet.
    Each win counts as a goal.

    Rhys reacted to cup of tea in Hornchurch 2-1 Haringey Borough   
    Good win - For me, the only disappointment was not winning by more to be honest. Agree with MikeMike, Ellis Brown has a good debut for us. Really good win and it’s also closed up a bit at the top there as well. Well done to the ref for booking their No 5 early on , glad that sort of decision is being made. Haringey have got some pace up front especially  their no 9 but Nathan Cooper in particular was up to the task today. Well taken goal from them though. Away support best I’ve seen at the Bridge this season , not quite as good as us away though! Weather was just weird , isn’t there a song 4 seasons in one day? Very useful win , well done Hornchurch

    Phew. A bit of a struggle getting that result over the line.
    Never really looked troubled but as the chances kept going begging it was starting to feel a bit like Cray Wanderers away. 
    Two very good goals from Chris Dickson and what a sublime defence splitting pass from George Saunders for the second. 
    Good debut from Ellis Brown. Seen him at 2 of Mark's former clubs as a winger but seemed comfortable at right back and very willing to get forward and into the opposition box.
    The 4-3-3 formation worked well again today as well although Joe and Jordan were often so high up the pitch that it seemed like 4-1-5
    Another decent crowd and a set of away fans as noisy as our own.

    Great win today - Jordan Clark was immense - how much of the pitch did he cover? Well deserved win , particularly for the second half performance. Going to give a shout out to my fellow supporters who were brilliant and kept supporting the team throughout the match . Well done Hornchurch

    Back to winning ways again thank goodness. Huffed and puffed a bit 1st half playing into the gale and needed a goal line clearance before a touch of class from Chris Dickson to take the lead.
    Much more dominant in 2nd half and probably should have scored more. What a free-kick from Joe Christou, keeper did well to get a finger to it and nice it was Matt Johnson reacting quickest. Still had Joe Wright to thank for some important saves to keep the clean sheet. 
    I think everyone was hoping Jamie Cureton would get one and it wasn't lack of trying, keeper's fingers are still stinging I expect.

    This is the cleft-edged double sword of Damacles.
    If it had been racist and Potters Bar did nothing they'd have been crucified.
    On the other hand, for something this serious don't put it over the tannoy unless you're 100% certain.
    I don't stand behind the goal but I do chat with those who do. I reckon if someone had made that kind of comment then the 40+ travelling Urchins would have been all over them.
    And I read it was a player's parent. Every game I speak with several player's parents and they all seem level headed (except for Mikey who is a 'chin and hates Aveley) and all of them seem engaged with the entire holistic environment of Hornchurch FC. I can't see any of them making such a statement without 100% certainty and a whole heap of other people hearing the same thing.

    I was disappointed with Potters bar's reaction to what a players dad thought he heard we have a great away support which is very vocal, banter and abuse can be a fine line but racist comments don't play a part. Yesterday I heard what was said and it wasn't racist albeit it is not banter either in my opinion, see you Wednesday. Shame we are not talking about Jamie's goal

    Rhys reacted to Dinamo Urchin in Masters of our own downfall   
    It didn't feel right from the off, with miss placed passes all over the shop and no real threat. Their forward line did look dangerous though and despite it never being a penalty, it wasn't a surprise that they took the lead. Having equalised just before the break I thought at half time we would go on and win - not to be.
    I know people were angry and frustrated at the end.  This was a great opportunity to reach the last 16. It's worth reflecting though that not so long ago many on here, myself included, were decrying the break up of the Division 1 North Championship team and the influx of ex Thurrock players.  Now we are upset whilst sat in the Premiership play-offs, with games in hand to go top and having reached the Trophy last 32. We've come a long way and one crap game shouldn't undo that. Lots to play for this season still, so onwards and upwards again.
    By the way, anyone know how the Romford Rockets, Wizards, Wa****s got on?

    Can’t help but agree with all of the above . The setup of the team didn’t seem quite right. Also seemed a flat performance, someone said to me it was reminiscent of the Potters Bar game. Well done to Aveley , good hard working performance from them but this was clearly a missed opportunity for us. At least we can start clearing off those games in hand now.

    Rhys reacted to MR D in Masters of our own downfall   
    I rarely give my opinion or criticise the players, but I really did think this was the worst performance I’ve seen from us this season. It’s frustrating for the supporters as this competition was something I know we all wanted to do well in. I feared before the game that we may underestimate our opponents as we’ve done this a few times in the past with lower opposition. Aveley simply wanted it more than us today.
    It doesn’t help that on a personal note a few people from my Sunday league team were there today as Aveley supporters so I will now get ripped to shreds in the morning. I don’t mind losing if I can say that we performed at our best and the opposition showed a lot more quality to win the game, but that’s not the case today.
    I’ll be looking for a big response from the players in the next league game and hope they can really show us the qualities that we know they all have. Let’s kick on now in the league and hopefully have a really positive second half of the season.

    A very disappointing day at the office. Never got going in the first half and it really was a case of they wanted it more then us. People have been saying what about dulwich what about oxford? Well it doesn’t matter about those games we were the underdogs and played out of our skins so why shouldn’t we do that today as the favourites? Aveley were the underdogs and we knew they’d come to fight and want it and quite frankly we didn’t want it and were second to everything. 
    i have spoken to players and fans after the game about today and debated for a long while before sending this but my opinion still hasn’t changed. We did not want it today. We didn’t turn up and we underestimated a lower league side which was our own downfall. 
    I think the icing on the cake was some of our players coming into the bar and having a laugh and joke rather than feel disappointed about the performance and the result. I know we are all humans but it rubbed salt into the wounds of a passionate fan. Was a bitter sweet thing to swallow as a fan who was so upset about the result and performance to see a person who is paid by the club to then enjoy their time in the bar more then they did on the pitch after a poor performance. I’d like to add a lot of the players were upset about the result and performance and made their feelings clear in the bar too.
    i know this will be read by many people in the club including owners and management but this is my own genuine opinion of today’s game in brief and think I’m allowed to voice my opinion. Especially as i took the day off work to support the team and be part of the big day! 
    But nevertheless we move on and continue to back the team. Onwards and upwards and hopefully we can spring on in the league and many positives to come over the coming weeks. Up the chins.
