  1. Well done to the stewards today and to the staff that helped them. Visually a lot more control. No comment about the game, big game Tuesday now
  2. Portland Timbers 1 v 0 LA Galaxy Charlton 1 v 0 Wycombe W Torquay 0 v 2 Dagenham Cray W 2 v 1 Horsham Urchins 3 v 0 Margate Attendance: 650 Contingency: Spurs 1 v 4 Arsenal (Women’s Super Lg)
  3. Don't get me wrong though, we can't afford too many performances like that.
  4. Don't think it was the lack of effort from the guys but I think we just seemed to be missing the guile to get past the team. They have a very experienced manager (as he told me, hinting about probably outlasting a manager from a bigger club down the road!!!) so probably got the best out of their team in terms of setup. I'm sure we'll be fine but we've worked so hard to get on top so games like that are frustrating.
  5. These are the sort of games we need 3 points from. Lucky to get a draw. Come on Hornchurch, we’re better than that. Great effort from the home side
  6. Aberdeen 1 v 1 Hearts Wolves 2 v 1 Leeds Stoke 1 v 2 Norwich Wingate 1 v 3 B. Stortford (could be anything though with BS) Haringey 1 v 3 Hornchurch Attendance: 320 Contingency: Espanyol 2 v 1 Celta Vigo
  7. 3 points please, don't care how. Won't be easy but we're on a good run and I'm confident we can go there and do what we need to do. 8 cup finals to go, COYU - 1-3 Hx att 320
  8. Wasn't there but sounded like an exciting game. Great result for us and puts us 5 points clear of Aveley and Stortford. Well done to all
  9. The club have taken measures - it's now far more difficult for young fans to get in. Not a lot you can do at half time though. Brightlingsea complain about everything.
  10. Any win, doesn't matter how we get it. This is going to be a tough game. 0-1 to Hornchurch att not many
  11. The club have clearly taken quite a bit of action to curtail the activity of some of the younger fans but there's still a certain minority of younger fans causing problems and having been on the receiving end of this at Lewes, it's not pleasant. Think it would help if the stewards wore clothing that was more hi-vis so they are more prominent
  12. Oh, I thought they said Pharrell , thought they were complementing us on our singing we’re certainly happy!
  13. I really don’t like playing Brightlingsea, nothing against the club but we just can’t seem to play well against them. We’re unlikely to be playing them next season. Scrappy goal to go behind to and we just couldn’t seem to get going in the way we know we’re capable of. Equaliser came relatively quickly, I thought that Ade was going to blast the ball through the net, that was hit hard. second half better but still the frustration was there until the second goal went in, massive relief from the home fans! Once Liam got that goal , things were much more relaxed. deserved winners and Stortford losing very late means that we’re top of the pile. That was the easy part, the hard work starts now with a game on Tuesday (against a Wingate side running into form unfortunately) that can give us a bit of breathing space. Some very tricky fixtures in the pipeline, Enfield, Carshalton , Horsham and Billericay won’t be doing us any favours but we critically got the 3 points today and it’s in our hands. Well done to the guys for not letting that early goal stop them and getting the win. COYU
  14. KAS Eupen 1 v 0 Oostende Everton 1 v 2 Brentford Leeds 1 v 2 Brighton Aveley 2 v 1 Folkestone Hornchurch 3 v 0 Brightlingsea Bogeymen Attendance: 530 (match my prediction elsewhere) Contingency: QPR 0 v 2 Watford
  15. On paper we should win easily but then you see who it is and how many times they've done us. Enfield away is the fixture I'm worried about but will be glad to get this one out of the way and get the three points (as I believe we will) 3-0 Hx att 530
  16. Routine performance, I overestimated Kingstonian to be honest. Plenty of endeavour but lacking a bit of quality. missed the pen, sure it was justified good through ball from Ade to set up Sam for the second. Hit the woodwork twice as well , icing on the cake for Chris for the 3rd. Not too disappointed about Stortford equalising and it means that Canvey dropped points (as well as Enfield and Hastings) so we get a bit of a decent gap between the three of them and us. I’m certain we’ll catch Stortford at some point the way we’re going, just one draw from two games to overtake them now.
  17. Kingstonian are in good form , looking at the table they have a good lead over the relegation teams. Think this might be tougher than it seems. I’d take any win 2-1 Hx crowd 299. Avoid losing tonight and we go second some interesting fixtures tonight - Hastings hosting Enfield which is really a 6 pointer and Stortford at home to Canvey
  18. Most generous description of Glenn Tamplin I've ever seen and we'll go with that for legal reasons
  19. Cracking game for a neutral , bit nervy if you’re a fan. Both teams set up to attack. Lewes looked very dangerous going forward. We had a lot of possession but Lewes made it difficult, it was like pinball in their penalty box on occasions . Their keeper pulled off an amazing save first half, matched by Lamar second half. Whole defensive line for us worked really hard, Sam was holding the ball and spreading play really well, good to see Liam as well. Had enough chances to take three points but when you go a goal down with not long to go, it’s good to get a point and shows the character of the team. Helps that Stortford lost and Aveley drew as well but just need to keep an eye on Canvey and Enfield behind. Stortford are running into some tricky fixtures now well done Hornchurch
  20. Fiorentina 1 v 2 AC Milan Southampton 1 v 2 Leicester Blackburn 1 V 1 Sheffield U Folkestone 1 v 1 B. Stortford Urchins 2 v 1 Lewes Attendance: 550 Contingency: Wolves 1 v 2 Totteringham
  21. Playing another team who still must have aspirations of the playoffs so this won’t be easy. Think we’ll still win though. BS now play 6 of the current top 8 in their remaining fixtures so it could get interesting for us and Aveley . 2-1 Crowd 540
  22. Sure we gave a good account of ourselves, would have been nice to get into a final but our priority has always been to get promoted this season. Well done to everyone who went and all the players and staff.
  23. Obviously keeping an eye on BS against what on paper looks like an easy win for them at home to Herne Bay. Anything other than a win for them though and we have two games in hand to get a win to go ahead of them
