  1. Lots of pressure but nothing translating into goal opportunities but Liam is always a threat and finished from a tight angle to some of the best goal celebrations I’ve seen for a while. Bit of an altercation shortly afterwards, think there were a few high emotions around. GK really should have stayed back for the corner at the end , open invitation to attack the goal and so it proved as a handball and a foul in the same move got the pen that Sam put away with no issues. Great determination from the Urchins today and these are the sort of games that we need to convert 1 point to 3 and we did. Well done all, left it late and at 0-0 you are always worried about the opposition nicking a win. COYU
  2. Crusaders 2 v 2 Glentoran (12:30) Sunderland 1 v 1 Millwall (12:30) Chelmsford 2 v 1 Dartford (12:30) Enfield 3 v 2 B. Stortford (12:30) Bowers 1 v 2 Chins Attendance : 340 Contingency: Derby 1 v 1 Sheff Wed (12:30)
  3. 3 points is all important so any win really but will go 1-2 to Hornchurch att 525
  4. Did someone leave a Hornchurch bobble hat today ? If so I’ve got it. Will liaise with other the club shop for someone to pick it up thanks
  5. My mom was Sam , although Liam was amazing - hope someone caught his last goal as that was special. Fantastic performance , keeps us chasing top spot. Ollie and Lewwis were really good in midfield , that was the key in winning the game. COYU
  6. This ground is jinxed , we rarely do well here. Decent goal by Sam but not getting that second is always dangerous and so it proved. Loads of pressure at the end but couldn’t get that winner. 4th of 6 games away , tricky one up next but we are clearing our difficult away games out of the way which will benefit us in the new year. Still a good position to be in, COYU
  7. Gibraltar 0 v 3 Andorra Cove Rangers 0 v 2 Greenock Morton Grays Ath 3 v 0 Hashtag United Haringey 1 v 2 Potters Bar Brightlingsea 0 v 3 Hornchurch Attendance : 280 Contingency: Glenavon 2 v 1 Coleraine
  8. A win and no injuries please. Don't think the pitch will be (ahem) so playable as Billericay, Sam might be key to this game.
  9. That decision was key to us winning, they would have eventually scored down their right with the crosses coming in
  10. Agree with Urchinman’s appraisal of the game . First half we rode our luck a bit, they knocked it across the goal mouth several times, pen came just at the right time for us. Second half we blew them away , one of the best halves I’ve seen this season with Ola causing havoc. Two great goals, weren’t exactly tap ins ! Only sour note of the night was watching Nathan limp off in the first half, hope that’s nothing too serious but it didn’t look good. Just a great team effort , really good passing in there as well. Very happy Urchin tonight COYU
  11. Tight game , thought we were the better team second half, they caught us on a breakaway , decent goal. Gets a tough fixture out of the way and we’re still in the mix COYU
  12. This is probably one of our toughest games of the season and it depends on the players that we can get out onto the pitch. The spirit of the team whoever we put out is first class at the moment and I think we can get a result. Take a draw but going for an end-end attacking game with Hornchurch coming out 2-3 winners att 520
  13. Sounds like a comfortable win last night, good to see Liam get some time in (and score a goal!)
  14. Wonder what the record is for the most consecutive draws !!! Goiás 1 v 2 São Paulo (Sunday night some time or other*) Bournemouth 1 v 1 Everton Newcastle Utd 2 v 1 Chelsea Carshalton 1 v 2 Enfield Town Aveley 2 v 3 Hornchurch Attendance : 520 Contingency: Internacional 1 v 2 Palmeiras
  15. Just no injuries please, Hornchurch win but really not bothered. crowd <100
  16. Massive win for us , we are really down to the bare bones in terms of players with both Sam and Liam out , with Charlie and Toby leading the line. The whole team worked so hard today against a determined Wingate side. Tight first half, creating chances second half and they eventually paid off. Decent support from us today. We’ve threatened to go top on a couple of occasions recently but today it’s happened (yes it all depends who’s top at the end of the season but this does signal that we’re in the race) Well done guys COYU
  17. Galatasaray 2 v 1 Besiktas Nott’m Forest 1 v 2 Brentford Everton 2 v 1 Leicester Maidenhead 0 v 2 Dagenham (FAC – at 90 mins) HFC 2 v 1 Wingate & F Attendance: 500 Contingency: Horsham 1 v 2 Potters Bar
  18. Damn - thought it was going to be one of those great Urchins comebacks a la Hastings but it wasn’t to be. Agree, that no 7 caused problems and Haringey looked good offensively . I always thought they looked suspect defensively however , playing the offside trap initially and pulling back the likes of Ola if they sprinted away. They got the first goal , if we had got it , it might have been a different game. Great resilience from us and once that first goal went in for us, we dominated. Just unlucky for their equaliser , keeper did miss it but I blame the rain in the first half 😊Does feel like 2 points dropped but I would have taken that at 73 minutes ! Loving the team spirit. Sam had a great game , held the ball up really well and never had a doubt (ok maybe a tiny one!) about the pen kick. Get those players back and we’ll be a real threat COYU
  19. Just have a feeling that the other Joe will be back in goal but we’ll see. You can’t underestimate anyone in this league and although what Joe C did on Saturday was amazing I’d sooner see him in midfield tomorrow as well. Got a good run going here, let’s keep it going and get behind the guys coyu
  20. First off just a big shout out to my mom Joe Christou , stepping in to be goalkeeper he did a remarkable job. Secondly well done to the Margate fans , impeccably behaved and there was clearly no sign of issues whatsoever , Hornchurch fans as always were well behaved. Good game and competitive Sam, Joe, Liam ,Ola played well in fact everyone played well. To put in a performance like that with the players we have out was amazing. Margate also played well, deserved their goal and made it a competitive game. Good goals all around pleased for Jack actually well done to Hornchurch COYU
  21. E, Frankfurt 2 v 2 B, Dortmund Fulham 1 v 2 Everton York 2 v 1 Southend Folkestone 2 v 1 Horsham (FAT at 90 mins) Margate 1 v 3 Hornchurch Attendance: 500 Contingency: Dundee Utd 0 v 1 Motherwell
  22. Depends on how many players we have available, still confident we can go down there and win 3-1 sounds about right crowd 500
