  1. My second match this season and yet to see a home goal but there was no idea of how to construct an attack, particularly first half. The afternoon was made more frustrating by the appalling time wasting by Chesham. Not the way to improve attendances I think.
  2. Well deserved and great timing. Love to see another win for April!
  3. We are back to the team which looked so convincing up to Xmas! The balance of the side now looks right and we well deserved this win on the second half performance. Luck will play its part in the play offs, but this has been a very good Town side which may yet be our best ever.
  4. Oh dear what a poor team selection I.M.O. and dire performance. It seems that the formation took no account of what gave us such a good first half of the season. Then we played with two holding midfield players, Thomas and Maja, with Percy in a central holding and foraging position. It's no coincidence that our poor run has coincided with Maja's absence. Today we played with one holding midfielder, Thomas, and one attacking midfielder trying to play as a defensive midfielder, Youngs. As has already been said, Percy was totally wasted at right back. As a consequence of this formation, we had a hole in the left side of midfield which left our defence at the mercy of the Lewes forwards and leading to goals two and three in quick succession. I accept we may have players unavailable but we should still seek a balanced formation with what we have. Sadly it appears that the new midfielder is right sided whereas we are short on the left. One option would have been to try Kirwan in that position bringing in Smith at left back. Similarly we could have shifted Harold Joseph to the the right, to allow Percy to fill his usual position. I hope Andy and the management team we can get this put right soon before a very promising season with a good set of players is wasted.
  5. Theodopolous refers to 'the ever moaning Cunnington' but should have added that his entry totally transformed the game in our favour.
  6. Amazing, littlehampton, that you have no replies after one of the best Town performances for some time. This website's definitely NOT the ETFC! Fantastic end to end game. Haringey were fast, fit and determined, Town resilient in all departments and wore them down at key moments. Town were very unlucky with two goal bound efforts hitting the inside of the bar, then upright, in a five minute spell. Something has changed about Town. They look strong in all Departments with backbone and and a will to win. Could be an interesting season.
  7. Interesting concept from Barney. Thinking about the very best in each position from my time watching Enfield and ETFC, I have no doubt in my mind about the following 11 legends: Andy Pape, Les Tilley, Tony Jennings, Alf D'Arcy, Ian Reid; Mickey O'Sullivan, Ronnie Howell; Noel Ashford, Carl Richards, Roger Day, Steve King. Sorry, no ETFC players make it for me. Not surprising for these players I have selected would have been at National league premier level and above. I only saw Tommy Lawrence play on the wing after his head injury so have excluded him. Great players all, great times.
  8. Adam Cunnington could be a great addition. He has certainly caused us plenty of trouble in past years playing for Billericay.
  9. Agree with the sentiments but, at our level, being able to swiftly replace departures is perhaps more important than over stressing about retention. In this respect I feel Andy Leese has done a reasonable job in difficult circumstances. We seem to be a club with a fair measure of success with player loyalty based on those who have either stayed or returned e.g Nathan, Jon Muleba, Harold, Percy. The exception of course being the Quinton exodus of which enough has been said. I do feel, rather like 4WF, that we should aim to be competitive on payments within our division. notwithstanding that we can never match the likes of Billericay of a couple of seasons back. Having to reduce player payments as we did this year should be the last resort. If we were fund raising to restore normal payment levels, I for one would do what I could to contribute.
  10. Surprised there is not more discussion on this thread.On the assumption that the league will restart some time, its a great chance to learn from what we have seen so far and 'hit the ground running' when we get back. Firstly, does anyone know what the League /FA will do about November fixtures? I seem to remember a proposal that missed matches will be scored as draws and therefore not played. This could be a decent outcome for Town given what looks like a tough fixture list for the month. Hopefully management can use the time to reflect on weaknesses and build on strengths. It will give Billy and others a well deserved break because IMO we cannot afford long term injuries for him and some other 'mature' players. Hopefully it will allow time for injuries to Thomas and Okoje and others to heal. It also allows reflection time on how we can use the restart to maximise income, given that 'elite' football may well not see spectators this season and we therefore have a product which will be in even more demand when we get out of this lockdown. Any thoughts out there?
  11. Battling team performance in awful conditions. Went one down from an unfortunate slip by the otherwise excellent Peppera. Got our two goals back with great timing but should have wrapped it up well before on chances. Timely subs and a great cameo performance from Percy who was superb to watch , charging with great strength at the opposition defence. Well done to the team Andy and Mario on a great win against a side who have ambitions this season.
  12. Could have been two or more up at half time but backs to the wall second half. Peppera was excellent and Jared Small worked tirelessly down the left side.Leatherhead did look poor. We were solid at the back but conceding this much ground for so long in a game will cost us against better sides.
  13. Thanks for the email address Raingod. Will send the programmes with pleasure. Paul was exciting to watch for his speed and skill in and around the box. To think we had Paul, Gary Abbott, Brian Stein and John Bailey in the same line up, with Martin St Hilaire on the bench!
  14. I have some programmes from Paul's time. Some I want to keep but happy to send 3 or 4, including Paul lining up with Brian Stein among others. Again I don't do twitter so I will need someone to let me know how to pass them on. nb that's in the line up, no picture.
  15. Agree with the comments above and we now all have to focus on not only surviving and getting over this crisis but helping the Club to do the same. I hope as many of us as possible will now renew our membership, season tickets and make donations.
