Westfield F.C. v Guernsey F.C. Tuesday 20th September 7.30pm

Recommended Posts

Smudge cheers for the support

Not bothered by Donkey as i know he doesnt reflect the true feelings of those associated with Guernsey. It's a wonderful oppurtunity for the CCL and lets enjoy it whilst it last's because I have a feeling they will be promoted to the Ryman within 3/4 years. Certainly already in CCL they are the team to beat.

GSY- very grateful to the council but it wasn't just handed on a plate- it's the result of a number of years of hard work by certain people at the club, way before my time.

A picture album of the redevelopment can be seen here

http://www.pitchero....elo-103629.html

includes photo's of the ground right up to cup game last month.

Any Guernsey supporters travelling to the match will be able to find a detailed guide on Sunday on the website of how to get there by car or train ( 25 min from Waterloo)

Shouldnt think it will be too busy around the area despite Hayes & Yeading being at home ( at Woking FC ) as they struggle to brreak 200 for midweek games unless the visitors have a sizeable following

 

What a turn around !!! Terrific. Wish I was able to come see it. Maybe next season :)

 

It looks brilliant but am I being stupid here I can't see many seats !? where do the supporters sit or do they just stand around the pitch ? I'm not having a dig I'm just interested.

Like I said it looks a wonderful building but there are not many seats. It looks like a bit of a wasted opportunity to provide a few hundred seats on the pitch side of the stand.

 

Like I said I'm very impressed with it and I wish the club all the best with it but I don't get it.

Lol I might have the brain of a child but I am over 30 ! If you read my other post I have already said many times I can't afford to travel away as I have a young family but I hope to get to at least 1 away game probably Bedfont Sports

I actually thought Donkey's original post was quite funny. There's far worse things said on here at times.

 

I hope to be there Tuesday depending on if I can get away from work early. The mention of diversions and traffic problems has me twitching already.

Donley - There's enough seats for specators. First and foremost we needed a building with new bar changing rooms etc so a big stand of seats was the last of the priorities

 

There is room on the otheh side to put some in if required for further promotion

 

Bomya

there will be no traffic problems.

 

Cool, you gonna give me a police escort in from the M25? :)

 

Haha if coming from m25 then diversion wont affect you

 

I will post instructions tomorrow

I have read on the GFC website that they had 8 first team starters out of the Spelthorne Sports cup game and still got a result...........does anyone know if that was true ?

 

If so have they got injury problems ahead of the Westfield game ? could be thier first loss ....it's gotta to come sooner or later.

Guernsey did indeed have several players missing who would almost certainly start

 

First choice keeper Tardif, 1st choice LB McKenzie, captain Sam Cocherane, Ex oxford yth skipper Gus Mackay, Club captain Matt Warren, Attacking wonders Glyn Dyer and Dave Rihoy, and a handful of othre players who would be in first team contention. We had three teenagers playing (all of which were starting for the first time).

A number of the first choice players were turning out for their local league side in a cup game against Jersey rivals, and the manager wanted to use the cup to blood a couple of youngsters.

There were a few injuries as well.

Not sure of Tuesday's squad but It's likely to be stronger than the Spelthorne game.

 

I'm expecting it to be close, Westfield and Bedfont away will be benchmarks for our level I think

Spelthorne were a decent outfit I thought. pretty organised at the back, good on the ball. They'll be fine this season

WHY NOT Donkey,

 

Why won't it happen ???????

 

We are playing to well to lose at the moment I expect Bedfont Sports or Harley Wintney to be the teams to test us most. Either of those might beat us is they play very well and we have an average game.

Not sure why you don't see Westfield a threat Donkey. They are only 4 points behind with a game in hand and we are playing away on a Tuesday night with a below full strength squad. Most people will see this as a real challenge and any result from a draw up will be welcome. Defeat possible? Absolutely! ( but I hope it doesn't happen)

Donkey you have only played one of the top 5 teams in the division at this time, and you drew with them, Westfield will give you a game as will Lammas, Bedfont Sports, Feltham, and a few more, your confidence is high but mislead, I personally do not think this season will be as easy as you think.

 

2-2 on Tuesday I think.

To b honest,some of you are being a little too precious with regards to comments by GD regarding his confidence in his team.He is not saying anyone is crap or anything like that,more simply having confidence in his team,thousands of fans across the country are the same so why shouldn't someone who supports probably the best side in ccl1? He has said what teams he expects to challenge but I don't see anything wrong with thinking your team can win every game!

dont get me wrong, i absolutely love having Guernsey in this league, i thinks its great and fresh for the league but i do sort of feel sorry for them because certain peeps are making them a target now. Everyone wants to beat them now, everyone threw the league wants there blood!! Donkey is a very confident fan and good luck to him but like Ellers said the big games are still to come!! really cannot wait!! still believe they will go up but dont think it will be as smooth as they may think, a cold tuesday in december, pitch in terrible state, how will they cope? be intresting to see!!
