  1. And how flaming typical that today is a beautiful day for football and not a ball can be kicked. What's the betting come December 5th it's either lashing down or we're under a carpet of snow. This year can't end soon enough 😡
  2. I saw him play in a preseason at Preston Park, was like a beached whale with the turning circle of the Ark Royal. And he still scored twice as the Wood gave Harefield a thrashing. Northwood wouldn't look out of place in the SSML (and indeed would've been in it this year but for the cancellation of last season). Which made their sound beating of the Hares full first team show how bad the home side were, and why I was (and remain) so amazed they can be so high in the table. They really are a poor, one dimensional outfit.
  3. Amazing, 28 pages and no mention at all of last week's debacle. Greenford to win tonight. Having seen both (have you seen either?) Broadfields will have too much pace for Tring to handle.
  4. I thought they planned to leave the league next year with Wembley anyway?
  5. My old work colleague Matty Bateman seems to have made the jump ok, scored for Hemel again today.
  6. Losing Harry McCorkell has been devastating certainly, but not sure there are 11 out who would ordinarily start. Not sure either about the wisdom of starting Mallett instead of Ballheimer between the sticks, Putnam's second was a shocking goal to concede all round, not least as he shot from an acute angle low into the near post and the keeper was virtually on the near post but still let it in! Pacman gees up the troops and leads from the front, enjoy watching such a wily campaigner and was sorry he didn't feature, think a recent red card may explain why he was on the bench, and at 6 down why risk him getting another when it was getting a bit naughty (Hares a bit lucky to finish with 11, frustration got to a couple). Farhall normally has plenty to say for himself, mainly to his team mates (not often complimentary), funny how quiet he was last night. In fact a feature of watching Harefield is how much they argue amongst themselves, and while understandable in the circumstances it was fairly muted compared with many a time at Preston Park. Still think Steven Green is a cracking player, but even he had a very quiet game by his standards. I hope the Hares get back on track soon, many more performances like that though and they'll be locked in a relegation battle.
  7. Don't know where you get your info, but Jets were 6 up after an hour, and that's how it stayed. Harefield were one dimensional, and only really got going after shipping six. Putnam got 2 by the way, one a pen. Men against boys.
  8. Been talking about this on the SSML fb page, is ludicrous there is no prize money for losers, is this the first time? What incentive is there for the minnows, especially those who have to travel far? Not like they will even get a share of the gate. Maldon & Tiptree one of those sugar daddy sides I was told by someone now plying his trade at HHTFC, think they did well in the Cup last season, definitely a tough draw for the Shrimpers.
  9. Didn't you say the same when they faced Harefield midweek before their Friday night win in the last round? They gave the Hares a chasing.
  10. On the related theme of rules, what is the position on bans following a red card? Is it served immediately, as always used to be the case in the PL/FL, or is there a period of purdah? Maybe while an appeal is considered? I ask as I'm sure recently a player was dismissed on the Saturday yet played on the Tuesday, struck me as odd is all. Can anyone enlighten a mere mortal sans handbook access privileges?
  11. Tring 1 Jets 2 Very difficult conditions, I think they call it blowing a hooly north of the border. Jets had the wind behind them first half, so the two goals scored were par really. Bircham hammered home a rebound from the keeper's save for the opener midway through the half, Brennan with a cheeky back heel a yard out from a corner for number two on the half hour. Before both the goals though was the highlight of the game, a stunning save from MOTM Rob Partington to push a great shot onto the bar. Second half the wind was stronger, and Tring came more into the game, wasting several chances before they eventually did find the net. Jets skipper Tom Gibson got an early bath (figuratively; the side stayed out at half time and didn't use the dressing rooms afterwards either, social distancing and all that) for two bookings, the second of which was highly questionable. This set up a nervy last 15 with both sides having gilt edged chances, Reece Cameron guilty of a bad miss when shooting straight at the keeper from close in when lifting it would've sealed things, Tring failing to hit the target twice when scoring looked easier. As a football match it wasn't a great spectacle, but it was never going to be in that weather. Intriguing derby now on Tuesday, my money's on the Jets as I've seen Harefield three times this season and been astonished how they've ridden so high in the league as they have gone a long way backwards from last year to these eyes. Blimey just seen the Harpenden result! They've been comfortably the best side I've seen this year, albeit on opening day, whereas Dunstable were probably the worst; just shows how anyone can beat anyone else in this league.
  12. Ashley Harrack looks a class act, one to watch for sure.
