  1. Agree with that. Joe Payne is a good signing but essentially a left sided rather than central defender, according to a Barnet supporting friend, who rates him highly.
  2. Delighted with the news re signings, particularly Jon Muleba who was our best player IMO during Quinton time. He was outstanding in Braintrees play off final win. What news of Mo Faal?
  3. Good to hear Nathan McDonald is back at the Club. I felt that Matt Nolan did a great job standing in last season and hope he can continue his development with the Club next season. We need something special to replace Matt Johnson and, as I said before, a quality central defender. Money talks and I believe that is the reason Matt Johnson has left. I am still recovering from the end of season capitulation which cost us a place in the place offs. If the club can strengthen the squad before we restart, I will continue to give them my support. Unfortunately Andy Leese will start the season under immense pressure to deliver. I hope he is up to it!
  4. First home game I have missed when I didn't have another commitment. Our home form has been abysmal this season. This is now getting very worrying.
  5. I have not been one of those calling for the manager to go on this forum and only a few weeks ago I was feeling optimistic that we would make the play offs. What is now clear from our recent capitulation is that we can play well in patches but don't have that essential ingredient I would identify as a 'winning mentality'. I hate to think of the impact on the Club's finances and development due to the absence of a decent FA cup / trophy run and play off run in. I would have accepted one or two out of three but certainly not none. We have lost our momentum as a Club and need to recover it quickly. I feel for those who put so much effort into this Club off the field. and the loyal supporters. The manager has to accept responsibility.
  6. Good luck to Town and new loan signing Joe Payne, if he plays. The last J.Payne debut I saw for the old Enfield was the immense John Payne who made 455 appearances between 64 and 73, captaining the club for most of that time.
  7. Someone like the excellent Tonbridge number 6 alongside Weatherstone would make a huge difference IMO. I am not having a go at Dan Rumens who for me is needed in the squad for the run in. If Mo is fit and Karl's loan is ending, maybe we can afford something?
  8. Lots of positives yesterday as highlighted by others. It should be added that Matt Nolan had another solid game and clean sheet, something of a rarity this season! We still look short of another quality central defender who can find passes out of defence and we also appear to have little central defensive back up since Remi Sutton left. I don't feel we should fear anyone if we can get into the playoffs so now is the time to invest in a central defender if we can find one.
  9. 4 wf there was also a black dog that used to sit behind the goal which the Es were attacking. When they scored, which was very often, the dog would bark and jump around as if celebrating the goal. In a touching moment TU presented the dog with a new coat before one of the games. Think the dogs name was Bruce but may be someone can confirm.
  10. Could also be seen as a great way to destroy a key player’s confidence at a critical stage of the season.
  11. Thought we did ok and disappointed we didn’t get the draw. Credit to Ryan Blackman who came over to apologise for his slip which led to their winner.
  12. Memory is hazy but mine was a pre season friendly v Chelsea XI which included ex England and West Brom centre forward Derek Kevan, ex Spurs Tommy Harmer and a young John Hollins. Es included Roy Thomas, Bobby Cantwell, Roger Day making his debut and I think Tommy Lawrence on the left wing following his serious head injury playing for Great Britain. Think we lost 4-2 with plenty of our regulars absent. We went on to reach Wembley that year where we were the better side but cruelly lost following goalkeeper Malcom Mitchell’s broken arm.
