  1. Good for them. Playing football in lockdown sends completely the wrong message nationally, exposes players, officials, backroom staff and emergency services (not to mention their families) to Covid, unnecessarily so, and provides the perfect excuse for deniers not to wear masks/comply with government guidance.

    I appreciate they are not refusing to play for altruistic but for more practical financial reasons, but even so, it's about time so called elite clubs called a halt to this lunacy.

    He did go on though on the show yesterday and was blowiing his own trumpet a bit, you don't do that do you

    How unlike a ref to be full of their own importance! Actually that's stereotypical, seen some good and some bad at this level, only a couple I would classify as Manwairing-esque. FWIW PetetheGreek is very good on the line, got a sense of humour too (essential if the match involves Jets and the industrial language of Mr Atkins ;)

  3. The first was the Rec's highest gate, 19,138, and was before I was born. The second I had the programme for, but was a baby then. Also played Man Utd around this time in the League Cup with the holy trinity on display, losing 1-3. Have never played any of the big London clubs competitively. 

    Rhodes you are always making sly digs at people, eg that very untoward remark to Pete the Greek on Christmas Eve, you know and I know you were implying I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth, and that's a red rag to this particular bull which is why I called you out on it. Here endeth the lesson.

  4. Yes, a 'leafy Surrey man', from a council house, surrounded by rich kids so you really knew you were poor. Hope that addresses your patronising preconceptions. I moved away to go to university and never went back, and have lived in 10 counties but mainly Herts in the last 20 years. I currently live in Soxhey and have followed Jets since the great escape season where the drop was avoided at Stotfold's expense, having previously followed St Albans City for 5 years but became disillusioned by many things such as money grabbing owners, obvious match fixing I witnessed (3 players sacked but swept under the carpet), atrocious facilities, revolving door recruitment but mostly because the owners rig it so they start like a train then come down with the Christmas decs, there is no desire to progress. They are top now, I bet they won't even make the playoffs, that's Levi all over.

    Before watching the Saints I had been an avid Aldershot fan since the 70s, but where do I start with them. Going bust twice was enough for me, they are doomed, and the town is a cesspit of a place, always was but far worse these days. At least I saw them rise back through the leagues to the FL, after that the wheels soon came off.

    Loving the Jets, they do such good work in the community and deserve every success. They are a joy to watch too this season.

  5. 1 all at the interval in the game of the day, Jets picking up where they left off with Cameron netting inside 3, Putman's also hit the post and it's all the visitors. Sloppy goal conceded though on 9, Giordamaina with a sloppy pass on the edge of the BU box, from which they broke quickly only to seemingly give up possession centre field but some more sloppy play at the back saw the hosts gifted an opportunity, which was despatched. Jets camped in the opposition half but with only 1 goal to show for it, I expect Mr Atkins will be peeling the dressing room walls as I type.

    Edit whatever he said must've worked, totally dominant display and Jets come away with the points, Haidar apparently getting the decisive second from a rebound. Can't help wonder how BU are top, not good at all on that showing. Jets sit out the next round of games, but then everyone else might be doing the same if news reports of an impending tier 4 are true.

    There is nothing stopping fans from travelling to Biggleswade on Saturday. The guidelines state spectators are ADVISED not to travel but it doesn't say they CAN'T travel.

    Oxhey Jets have always requested no game at Christmas so hence after Saturday they do not return to action until Jan 2nd

    I've contacted Biggleswade's Club Secretary for clarification on this, as obviously I'd love to go but equally I don't want to have a wasted journey, let's see what they say.

  8. So much for petering out, final score 10-0, Stead x2, Putnam x2, Giordama x2, Bircham x2, Cameron and Speer. Colney ended with 9, for a bit of afters near the end but was already double figures by then. Great credit to LC, they kept going and had a lot of shots second half, but it was just wave after wave at the other end and could have been anything. Putnam in particular unlucky not to have the match ball as the makeshift keeper pulled off 2 sensational saves to deny him. Pick of the goals a worldie from young Sean which raised the roof. 16 goals in 4 days at the Jets will have to sustain me until the new year, but what a way to sign off (no away fans will be allowed Saturday, no game until 2 Jan after that).

    Karen - Will the League be querying that decision out of interest as it is the best pitch in the League, none of the other fixtures are off this evening, do you know who the inspecting Official was

    Absolutely shocking decision, FA and league need to investigate as this isn't the first time they've pulled a stroke like this (against the same opposition as well).

    Oxhey Jets 3 North Greenford United 3

    Lewis Putman amongst the goals!

    A real winter warmer of a match, in spite of a card happy, fussy ref. No team sheets available but Ashley Harrack who greatly impressed on his last game at the Boundary didn't feature, nor did 4 or 5 Jets regulars.

    NGU got an early goal to which Puts and Sweeney replied on 31 and 34 and the former nearly made it 3-1 but for a goaline clearance. The pick of the goals came from the visitors before the break, a sweetly struck volley from a long cross field pass.

    Jets went ahead midway through the second half, Stead with a surging run and finish, but Greenford were awarded a soft pen with 8 to go from a corner (by the lino, who saw something off the ball which I didn't, wasn't much argument from the home side though). It was duly converted to end the scoring, but Jets hit the bar from a cross shot in injury time and NGU had chances of their own.

    Cracking entertainment, twice I've been impressed with the side from up the A40, can't understand why they are where they are in the table.

    Should be a good game that.

    Could well be, the return fixture got quite naughty and Colney will be out for revenge on all fronts. Was a decent game in front of the Prem's lowest crowd this term (of games to allow admission), LC played well in the main belying their lowly league position, I've certainly seen worse. My prediction is it won't finish 11 apiece.

    Photographs from Godalming Town v North Greenford United in a 2017/18 Combined Counties League Premier Division fixture on Saturday 23 December 2017, Goldalming Town won 2-1 with Brian Testolin netting for North Greenford United who transferred across to the SSML Premier Division at the end of that campaign:

  13. I saw earlier on the league fixtures site that the Jets visit to Baldock scheduled for 5th has been mysteriously moved to 23rd, which ordinarily would have been very annoying but for the fact I would've had to miss it anyway, got a good samaritan act to do. Anyone know why it's been moved though? Neither are in the Vase, and both not now playing when everyone else will be. Jets haven't played since the mauling of Harefield, before Halloween, so will be even more rusty with this postponement.

    Edit just looked again, now all league games due for 5th have been shelved with just the Vase on 5th

    It is indeed Aaron, dual signing from Northwood 

    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.
