  1. Happy Birthday nick.ince!

  2. What on earth has happened at Cockfosters? Could potentially finish bottom pending the outcome of the Stotfold vs. Hoddesdon fixture. Obviously having worked with Dean Barker for most of this year, I understand that he was able to pull together a talented young squad with a non existent budget last year, but to go from 3rd to 23rd/24th is a huge crash. Having battled with the Cockfosters team that got promotion from Div 1 a few years ago, it will be a shame to see them drop back down.
  3. Some very boring, dare I say Italian'esc football being played in the development league by the looks of the results...
  4. Will be an interesting couple of weeks on twitter...my feed is full of shaky hand or players signing on pictures!
  5. Winning the league should be the primary motivation, promotion is a by-product of that success. Those who say 'we couldn't get promoted anyway, so whats the point' are using it as an excuse for bottling it when it came to the crunch. That said, I would have been very surprised if Dean or anyone else (at this level) could have taken Cockfosters any further. Their apparent lack of resources in comparison to other clubs will make it very difficult to keep hold of their better players or bring in new players of the required quality.
  6. I seem to remember people saying the same thing about Welwyn last year
  7. Why would they come straight into the Prem? Surely they should be accepted into Div 2
  8. Has anybody heard anything more about this?
  9. Big meeting last night by all accounts...
  10. No issue with travel in the Ryman North...could be so much worse! If they do refuse to go up, it will be for other reasons.
  11. I think that the sin bin approach is a really good concept, but would hate it if officials were sent up shit creek without a paddle! The rules must be clear in order to support referees using the sanction. If there is too much ambiguity, then the use of the sin bin becomes laughable and referees will not feel comfortable. I think that it would work best for second bookings and dissent.
  12. Ware being relegated is not ideal for other local clubs. They will surely need to rebuild and that may start with trying to cherry pick from other local sides. It will be a very interesting pre season.
