  1. In that case I'm pitching in for yellow and green, the traditional colours of Lotus cars.
  2. I think it might have been Tony Gay from comments on Twitter

  4. Hey PTU, we're mathematically guaranteed a playoff place as Lewes and Folkestone are both 10 points behind with 3 games to play so clear your diary for Wednesday 27th
  5. I think 5-0 flattered us. They closed down well and got a lot of 2nd balls and the 15 (Yila?) was a handful. A couple of shots that Joe could only watch go wide. A little bad luck and it could have been very different. But each of our goals when they came were well constructed and clinical like a hot knife through butter and not the first time we've had 5 goals from 5 different players. And good to see the substitutes heavily involved in the goals. Given our last 3 league fixtures 2nd place is still possible although 6 goals difference and 3 points is quite a challenge.

  7. I can't believe no one has mentioned it.
  8. I've watched Jordan since he made his way into Thurrock's first team as a teenager. He played in several positions as a utility player until he was the bottom of a diamond formation where he went from strength to strength. I recall he originally started playing centre half as cover for injuries but quickly made the position his own but always looking to surge forwards even in a game as important as an FA Trophy final. With Joe Christou deputising in goal and others missing through illness we're so lucky to have so many players who can step up.
  9. Yep, reserve keeper tested positive for Covid and league wouldn't allow an emergency loan according to Mark Stimson interview.

  13. That punch though. If you weren't there tonight, I hope it got caught on camera and will be in the highlights. Weirdly, I thought Casuals played better when they went down to 10 as well. Lewwis Spence so close for another 40-ish yard first time lob. Ollie Muldoon so close for a 40-ish centimetre touch in.

  17. So, the unbeaten run continues and we move into 4th place. A tougher match than expected, Leatherhead were compact at the back and quick to close down but also didn't really offer much going forwards but still had a couple of decent chances. But Hornchurch kept at it until Tobi broke the deadlock. Hard luck for Remi not getting on the score sheet with another fine run into the box but Higgo on hand to tidy up after the goal line save. That is the third game in a row Sam Higgins has come on in the 74th minute and scored - that's scarily consistent.

  20. The typical tough battle I've come to expect from Folkestone. I thought their 6 was exceptional against Tobi and kept him very constrained (apart from the penalty obviously). I thought Folkestone were stronger in the first half, maybe because we dropped into a back 5 when they had the ball which limited options to get on the front foot. A sloppy touch from Ollie to let them in for the equaliser but what a volley to make amends - and I think it was that strike that dropped their heads as I felt that was when the tide turned. I thought the ball crossed the line before Charlie Ruff buried it but I suspect he has a different view. Sam Higgins didn't look like a player who hasn't been in a game since last September. Not the most mobile of players yet the ball just finds him as though on a magnet. Got 1 good goal and close for a second in just 20 minutes. Liam looked good again today, especially when he moved to the left wing towards the end of the game. And the back 5 very solid against some lively front men. Although, for such huge brick outhouses they didn't half squeal and fall over easy. And loved Lewwis' gamemanship claiming there wasn't a number 19 shirt on the pitch when the wrong number was displayed for the final substitution.

  22. Annoyingly, Dr. Covid visited overnight and I wasn't able to go to the game. First time in my life that a positive result has been bad news. Anyway, I was able to get a decent commentary from fellow fans and Twitter and it seems that we spurned a whole heap of chances - ho hum. The joint curse of Manager of the Month and Golden Glove strikes again - I mean, we only let in 3 goals for the whole of January!! Fortunately, Folkestone and more surprisingly Stortford also both drew - and East Thurrock nearly held Lewes. So, onto Tuesday, and I will be cheering for Bowers (also a first time occurrence) to set up a massive game on Saturday. Hopefully 2 negatives will be a positive and I can be there.
  23. Thought I'd install this ahead of time but reading the reviews it has a 1.3 rating form just over 2.5K reviews. I think I'm going to make sure I have a chunk of change and will pay with coins. Many reviews i read talked of receiving fines weeks later because the App hadn't recorded the transaction. And they add a service charge over and above the parking fee apparently.
