  1. AL hasn't been able to replace Mo, Jerry, Manny and PK following their departures over the summer. As Andy says above, the buck now stops with the manager. I shall wait until we've played 10 league games (Currently 5 - and 14th in the league,) before deciding whether I believe AL can turn this around. However exiting the FA Cup at the first hurdle - and with barely a whimper - is almost a sackable offence already in my eyes. I hope the board are having a look at suitable replacements.
  2. With all these red cards you keep trying to appeal, you're certainly taking up plenty of the FA's time without our help!
  3. Already beginning to get the feeling that Andy has been riding on Mo's coat-tails. I appreciate that Mo's don't grow on trees and its very early days, but struggle this season and some of us might be calling for change once again.
  4. Yep, my comment didn't 'age' very well!
  5. With Mo consistently on the bench and lucky to get the occasional 20 mins (despite Havant having a couple of strikers out with short-term injuries), anyone reckon he might be back to us on loan by Christmas?
  6. True, but Mo contributed to 55 goals last season.
  7. For those living on the Moon, Mo Faal has announced his departure from the club. He has not yet revealed his destination, although there is a suggestion that it is 'a level up'. I could see him returning to Dulwich Hamlet. Surely Chesericay couldn't tempt him? ?
  8. Non League Bible Predicted Isthmian Prem Table No surprise when you take away Mo's 30+ goals.
  9. I read with interest that Lewes were able to secure a £750k grant in order to install a Hybrid Pitch over the summer. It is 95% natural grass intertwined with a mesh carpet to ensure stability, as used in the Premier League. They describe it as "a state-of-the-art playing surface, and comes complete with embedded irrigation system, pop-up sprinklers and drainage to maintain the performance throughout the year." Having read that Town are considering installing an artificial pitch (a la Aveley, Worthing, Dorking etc) and wondered whether this type of hybrid might actually be a more attractive middle ground? Might there also be scope for obtaining a similar grant? Have the Board considered this option? Whilst I see the financial benefits of a Worthing-style artificial pitch, I'd rather watch football played on a grass pitch. Plus, I understand there are arguments that it leaves players more prone to injury. I'll be very interested to hear reports on Lewes' new pitch. Its also interesting to note that artificial pitches are not permitted in the football league. Recently promoted sides have had to tear up their 3G and re-lay turf - Sutton, Harrogate Town.
  10. Your You're a strange lot over here. Big fines ? - A few £k is definitely small fry for you big time Charlies at Chesericay. A ban for Frempah ? - The cancellation of his registration at Chesericay seems to be the least the FA would do, looking at previous cases. A 3 -12 points deduction* ? * See below Automatic Relegation ? * - I'm not sure the Spartan South Midlands League deserve you, but it seems about the right level. Compensation ? - Automatic relegation will be sufficient compensation. A hint of a court case ? - Perhaps they can televise it? And on your FB site someone wants to hang one on Frempah. Not that they'll have the bottle ? - Mr Frempah clearly knows how to make friends, bless him. Just to say thanks to the few who showed up on Saturday .Not all of you are so easily lead. - Not overly surprised that there were only a few fans in total. And don't forget to pay your £10 membership like good little club shareholders. God help you all if the ship sinks ? - Unlike Chesericay, the ETFC ship is not reliant on a benefactor of any kind. I'm willing to bet it floats the long of the two. ?
  11. We were all getting along just fine - there was even going to be a Community Cup game between us - and then you Chesericians decided that the rules didn't apply to you! And then your little weirdy-beardy manager decided that was quite amusing! So don't come round these parts claiming the moral high ground, Albs!
  12. I'd've thought it'll be automatic relegation for Chesericay.
  13. Henceforth the little village club up the A10 will be known as Chesericay. If you think Mo was on big bucks then you really have no idea about ETFC. In the circumstances, assuming Frempah was registered correctly by ETFC, then I would expect Cheshunt to be reprimanded by the FA. Had this happened mid-season, then it would've been a fine and points deduction. I would much rather find out in July that a player has no loyalty to the club than later on, so thats all well and good. The damage to the relationship between the two clubs is a much more unfortunate side-effect with the blame for that certainly being laid at Chesericay's door.
  14. Quite humorous, but I'm not sure the Cheshunt Manager should really be getting involved in the banter given the circumstances. Still, its a matter for Cheshunt how they wish to present themselves.
