  1. To be fair they haven't started the season any better than we have.And we play in a higher league AND are at home.Will be very disappointed if we don't win the tie
  2. I think the Haringay game will be a very good barometer of how out season will pan out..Bounce back with a win against a good team and i can see us finishing top 6..A draw would indicate a final position of about 7th-9th.Another loss on the bounce and i can see mid-table looming
  3. Reasonably pleased with the perfomance.Was fairly enjoyable and some good play was produced.Percy impressed.Mo was a class above and lewis worked his socks off (needs to up his fitness though.Sure that will happen with a good run of injury free games).Lots of players i wasn't familiar with but so far so good.As i always say the real test of any progression will be how we fair against the top 6 clubs in the league Don't think our manager was at the game today?
  4. Great result.Actually looking forward to our first league home game now.
  5. Mo will probably only play for us if a better offer from another club does not come in before the start of the season.And even if he does play for us he won't sign a contract and will be off as soon as another club shows any interest..I would not bother unless he can commit to one full season with us.
  6. Andy Leese finished 11th and 11th with Chesham in the two seasons before he joined us.He has also averaged 11th place in the full seasons he has been with us. He seems a good bloke and a solid manager,but iwe haven't found a succesful style of play and anything resembling a settled side in the last 3-4 years
  7. I predicted this at the start of lockdown.As a club we had a big chance (and a lot of time) to reflect and put in place a new way forward We chose to stick and probably waste another season.Maybe the world and football will be in a more secure place at the start of next season to put a new bold plan and vision for the club in place? Who knows
  8. Football has been tagged with too many topical messages over the last 18 months.Enough to last a lifetime.
  9. Not for me.Like to keep campaigning and buzz-word slogans out of football Actual basic design is good though .(minus sash)
  10. We had a chance over the long covid period to reset the managment set-up/playing squad/and how we want to proceed as a club in the future. Got a feeling though that it will be the 'same old' .With probably 7 or 8 players still with us (the one's that no one else wanted),plus the usual revolving door of transient Level 7 players
  11. Not that fussed about the player comings and goings.Think we need a virtual clean sweep and a fresh start anyway.A new outlook.We should be looking to recruit players willing to commit to the club and that are good characters.Otherwise there will remain little connection between players and supporters with the current revolving door policy.
  12. Looking at a recent email it seems the ETFC board are under the impression that when next seasons league campaign starts, we will be restarting this seasons league campaign from the positions the clubs are currently in the table,rather than a new full season? Is this correct?😐
  13. I very much doubt our league will restart until paying fans are allowed back in to grounds..Hopefully that will be by the start of next seasons friendlies.
  14. I was talking about agreeing a new structure for the management/playing staff.Rather than putting it straight into place under current circumstances.Roll it out when things are more back to normal
  15. Think the board need to use this time of extended non activity to re-assess the complete structure of the management and playing staff..I would be happy with a complete reset.We need a smaller,more tight knit,less transient playing sqaud that are loyal to the manager.We need to instill a better bond between our supporters and the playing sqaud
  16. Don't think many of us are that bothered about the 'coming's-and-going's' of players at the moment. With a club (and league) that seemily do not want to resume until the start of next season,it will have to be a complete rebuild of the squad anyway.(With only those who couldn't get into/got rejected by a conference south side left standing. I'd be more worried about retaining our core supporter base rather than retaining transient playing staff
  17. National league and above still playing. Another null & void season for our league by the look of it
  18. Lets be honest.No current or past Town player would get anywhere near a best combined 11..In fact i could pick 6 or 7 teams before a Town player would get picked (excluded players that have represented both teams,of course). This is not slight on the many fine players who have represented Town.It's just that Enfield FC had so many great teams that played at a much higher level than Town currently have done.If we keep progressing then hopefully in the future i may be able to include some Town players in my best 11.
  19. Let's put this into some perspective here. Covid has been a threat for a long time now..Up until recently we as a club had fans packed into small stands behind the goals.singing and dancing away together. A few short weeks later people are being called 'idiots' for wanting to not be alone on christmas day They say a week is a long time in football.Just as a month is a long time in life.
  20. Did i say it would be easy? Funding and building an new bar/venue will be a very big undertaking both finacially and in the planning (Just as no doubt it was when the Starlight rooms were added to Southbury Rd)..This is not pie in the sky and this possibility has already been actively looked at by the club Securing the very best manager possible at this level and within out financial structure should be of utmost importance for any club board.Not being willing to accept mediocre performances should also be important Filling the squad will loyal (rther than transient players)mi
  21. I think we may have lost a significant portion of players,supporters,helpers because of this second period of non-activity With this season already looking like a null & void, think it's time for our club to take stock of what we have so far achieved since our formation and more importantly where we want to be heading and how we will achieve that I personally feel we need three things to progress to where we want to be 1.We need an income stream.Probably via a new entertainment/bar venue 2.Always try to employ the best team manager possible as this level and to never ac
  22. Clubs seem to be able to still play friendlies with no problem at all (With no gate or bar)..Maybe they don't have to pay squad wages when playing friendlies? Who knows?
  23. Our league took the gamble to come to a halt.In the hope that the matches could be played later on in the season when all teams could have fans attend and club bar's would allowed to be open. The gamble is that if these games are never ultimately played,the clubs have forever lost the gates receipts for those games (needlessly?) cancelled
