Just feel I have to say something........ If someone is so behind their club good luck to them. Any player on this forum worth his salt will try and wind up the opposition on the playing field and get into their heads. Well GD has done the majority of you on here and if that is what makes him tick then good luck to him and shame on you guys that have bitten. I have seen Guernsey this year and yes they are a good side and well run. My only reservation is that if we have a bad winter like the last few years would they be able to play sat, tue, thur, sat for the last 4 weeks of the season. Time will tell but GD u are a class act on the wind ups ( I hope thats what they are ) and I think a few of you need to be let out of his pocket as thats where I think he has you at present.

We play on cr@p pitches in the winter over here as well you know and being on an island we also play in windy conditions with a high chill factor regularly so the winter won't be a problem. It will be the same for both teams. I really don't understand why people say we won't play well in the winter ????

I meant not the games in the winter but the cancellations that mean 4 games a week at the end of the season. It has destroyed many a title challenge. I just hope you have enuf players that can make a potential 4 trips to the mainland in 1 week.

Oh ok I get what you mean now. Lots of others have been saying we won't play well on bad pitches which is nonsense in my opinion.

 

We have great depth in our squad though so I don't think 4 games a week will matter. We are rotating our squad well so far, so although there are 4 games a week any player might only play say 2 or 3

I wondered the same but maybe we have stumbled across the answer. It makes playing rearrangements easier for everyone?

Mentioned many moons ago by yours truly.But lets hope the Guernsey Management are greedy for success,and reach the Premier Cup Final,the Div1 Cup Final,there will not be enough Saturdays in the season,to complete their League programme.And another point by coincidence,tomorrows Knaphill home game has been postponed,till the 11th october,I wonder why,not because WESTFIELD ARE PLAYING GUERNSEY ON THE SAME NIGHT SURELY.

Insomnia and gossip has brought me here. Most of Guernsey is murmuring about the infamous Smudge who has dared to 'say some not nice things' about the beloved Lions. How dare anyone.

 

Actually what I find is a great forum with some interesting posts. Sure some of them a little OTT but you don't get a reaction worth following otherwise. It'll take a while to work out who really knows what they are talking about.

 

An opinion on tonight's game? Guernsey have been playing some great football home and away. Although people have been saying some nice things about what level we could play at we haven't really outclassed anyone in this league, despite the results. (think MU vs Chelsea this weekend).

 

Westfield are obviously a good side and I would expect tonight to be a great game of football. I hope we win, but I won't be surprised if we don't. Looking at the early form I would expect Westfield, Bedfont and maybe Spelthorne to take us close especially at their patch.

 

Hartley outplayed us 1st half on their pitch and contrary to other opinions we will struggle to play on tough surfaces which will get tougher as the season continues. No disrespect to Hartley is meant. The village and club facilities were great and we appreciated great hospitality, but even their staunchest fan would admit the pitch there is a little undulating. We are lucky to have good playing surfaces in Guernsey and all 7 clubs have good facilities.

 

Most Guernsey fans are just grateful for this opportunity. All the clubs I have visited have been welcoming and I hope fans and players alike have conducted themselves appropriately. The only issue I have encountered was a 7 yr old ball boy at Horley who apparently 'hated' Guernsey.

 

I can understand why people want to 'take us down', especially with some of the arrogant and disrespectful things that have been posted (even in jest - GD you are entitled to your opinion mate but you aren't making it easy for we who travel away). But I also think it's unfair to tar us with the same brush as Crawley or Truro. None of our players have been purchased nor are they paid. In fact all have paid to play.

 

I hope tonight is a great game and may the best team win. Whoever does I hope they do so magnanimously and we can share a beer and a burger afterwards. It certainly looks a great facility that puts Footes Lane in it's place. We might have 1000 seats but our facilities are woeful when compared to places like this.

 

See you tonight, and the rest of you Saturday.

Westfield and Knaphill are near neighbours,the Woking Mayor cannot be in 2 places at the same time,even though he lives in Knaphill.Bigger crowd?

Good first post GG although I have to disagree with one of your comments.

At the risk of seeming like one of those arrogant posters (not the intention). I think in a couple/few games we have 'outclassed' opponents - (don't forget the number of 4 and 5-0 wins we have had. That's not to disrespect and say other opponents aren't good and that we are superior, just that we have been the far better side in a few games so far. Whether that will continue remains to be seen.

 

Maybe outclassed is the wrong word because as everyone knows, form is temporary, class is permanent, so maybe rather than outclassed teams we have simply outplayed them, been the better team on the day, however you want to word it

 

Of course there have been some very close games - Hartley Wintney, Eversley and Spelthorne come straight to mind so there has been a good mixture. We have been excellent in the majority of the games, really had to work hard and battle for points in the others. Tonight's game is another big test.

 

Also, with regards to the pitches, the only proof so far about us struggling on poor surfaces is he first half of Hartley Wintney (also remember Ross Allen was on the bench until the second half). In the second we were much better and we have played well in the majority of our games on all surfaces both home and away - Eversley and Spelthorne both ahd good surfaces i thought. Eversley in particular was excellent although it was hammering it down.

 

I wonder what will happen to Footes Lane when the weather gets horrendous and the groundsman has to deal with rugby team using it every other week. We have a full time groundsman though so hopefully that won't be too much of an issue,
