  1. Mr Leese, is that you?? Why are you so upset by fans forum criticism? I suggest you get over it. I, for one, will criticise when I believe the performance/tactics etc deserve it. I will also congratulate worthy performances. If you don't like that, Mr Observer, then perhaps you might like to go frequent the Cheshunt forum instead? Today's game... Surprise, surprise, the side from 2 divisions below decided against trying to match us in a free-flowing exhibition of attacking football. Instead, they got men behind the ball, said "break us down if you're good enough" and then sought
  2. OT, how do you propose we keep Mo for longer? Its entirely possible he could leave right now if the right offer were to come along. As we have discussed on the forum before, no player who could possibly land a pro contract is going to sign a contract at ETFC if it effectively prices them out of a move up the pyramid. So lets enjoy Mo while we have him, and as you say, unearth a couple more goal-scorers while we're at it.
  3. I am more than a little concerned that we have ridden our luck so far this season - lets not forget that in our win against Cheshunt the oppo hit the woodwork twice and spurned a few other good chances. At this stage I don't necessarily think we've progressed a great deal (despite the Lewes Manager's claim that our team has got stronger each year since AL took over). And if Mo leaves at or before Xmas I fear it might be mid-table mediocrity for us this year. Still hoping to be pleasantly surprised but we shall see. I don't mind the long ball game when we have Cunnington on the field - it make
  4. Its........Hadley (who came through 3-2aet)!
  5. Lets not jump the gun and see whether EFC can actually get through! Would be interesting to see whether 46yo Jamie Cureton gave himself a run-out against Town.
  6. Dereham had a good win against Hashtag Utd at the weekend. Highlights are here if you want to get an idea of what we're up against.
  7. Didn't see that result coming! But then I didn't foresee the return of Mo and the recent useful signings. Not complaining, but Mo is too good for this level - didn't get much of a chance at Bolton and seemed to be injured/under-used when on loan at Barnet.
  8. I appreciate that we've yet to lose a single league or cup game this season, but it just feels very stale already. The squad looks weaker than last season and there is nothing to suggest they'll be pulling any trees up this year. I think the board can be excused for focusing more on keeping the club afloat during Covid rather than assembling a stronger playing squad. But what seems evident now is that AL doesn't have the ability to bring in and put together a better team.
  9. Anyone else think that George Borg'll be back by Christmas, rolling up his sleeves for another relegation dogfight?
  10. ...and Brad gets the sack! Wonder whether Ryan and Lyle will be retained by whoever is appointed next with the club at the bottom of the table?
  11. In advance of BoJo's announcement this evening, and the league's intention to give at least 14 days notice before any restart, I'd be surprised if we see any league football before mid-February.
  12. The loss of 3 key players has been publicised. Any ideas what the rest of the squad are now up to football-wise? Are they now playing Sunday League? Or pay-to-play Saturday stuff in the amateur leagues?
  13. We need cash to allow a manager to put together a squad which is capable of not only achieving promotion but being a force in National South. I understood ETFC's raison d'etre was to recreate the past glories associated with Enfield FC. A club which was arguably the biggest and best in non-league football - and should have reached the Football League. Is that completely unrealistic? Well, it has been said that a man's reach should exceed his grasp. Being a little more serious than my tongue-in-cheek post earlier, it seems to me that there are only 2 ways in which ETFC can obtain the finan
  14. Is there - or could there be - an orderly queue of people looking to invest in ETFC? Watching that documentary of EFC from the 90s a couple of weeks back I was reminded of the way Lazarou treated Enfield FC and Southbury Road. Presumably no-one will want to invest in ETFC unless there's something in it for them? I can't imagine the club would ever accept a Glenn Tamplin type character waltzing in and taking charge. The way I see it, as a fans-owned club we have 4 options to bring in enough capital to catapult us up the leagues: Go on a magnificent FA Cup Run with a couple of
  15. I did hear the interview. To be fair to Ryan, I got the impression that he was more trying to say 'the right thing' for the supporters of his new club rather than having any kind of a dig at ETFC. The fact he paid us a visit on Wednesday probably says more about his feelings for the club rather than an off the cuff remark.
