Recommended Posts

Nice poster

 

Times for this trip will be added this week by my new secretary :D 

 

Last chance too see the boys this season  lets ave it.

 

I hope that's not an excuse to get me sitting on your knee!

5-0 to Wingate wow! - did the first team go on holiday early?

 

At an early stage East Thurrock were 2 down to Bogner. I think someone must have told them not to expect any favours from Town and they managed to turn it round to save their skins. Wingate must be gutted.

It will be very interesting to see if the bookies flag this match up as suspect - I could only get £100 on Wingate (normally no problems getting more on at this level). This match reeked of shenanigans from the off.

 

The black geezer playing #5 for you lads must surely be a fraud - he ain't no footballer, that's for sure.

Result speaks for itself, Blues were slow out of the blocks and Wingate scored two quick goals.  Town did pick up with Josh coming on but Wingate kept pushing.

 

The morning started badly in the pub in Farringdon and the game was poor.  Had a laugh though. 

In the last few weeks I've met some great people and I look forward to more away games next season.

Sad that final game of season attracts such allegations not surprised by the comments coming from PB but would not expect EU to fabricate and i am not suggesting you have, could it simply be that wingate had everything to play for and BTFC only pride which sometimes as we know is not enough. Lets hope so this hanging around the club is certainly poor publicity.

 

Have a good summer.

As I understand it, the rather skewed scoreline was down to Billericay having an injury ravaged team (there were only two subs on the bench). Maybe a more informed poster can confirm?

 

All that said, I fully appreciate that if Enfield had drawn at Cray and we had won 6-0 (thus staying up) it would have looked a bit iffy. But we didn’t, and nor did Enfield lose. Sometimes football throws up freak results.

 

If you want to talk about dubious results, the below is a standout one.

Billericay have only had a small squad all season so a few injuries always has an affect.  We were lucky to have Josh back and YES we did only have 2 subs on the bench. 

 

Wingate wanted it far more.

Deleted as not to offend

How much did you win on that very strange result  at Chelmo Eastside?

 

By the way well done for making the playoffs and good luck at Kingstonian

The fact we only had 2 subs annoys me at that we could of taken 3 u18's to give them the experiance of what its like up with the first team but no, none are signed which shows the non existance of promoting youth through the club, who was the last player to come through are youth probably chatting about 3 years ago but nothing since, craig would rather sign a massive lump than look down to see whose playing well in the u18's and theres also that theres no reserve team which in my opinion is a joke because id rather see someone come up through the youth and play for the shirt.

Had you attended the Q&A with Craig and myself, and made these points MB, you  would not have made that inaccurate post.

OR, had you spoke to Craig after the game,  which he has encouraged people to do if they have a question. You would not have made that inaccurate post.

There is no denying It was a  disappointing and unexpected way to end the season, a comment I guess a lot of teams will be saying today. But its over now, and although we would all have loved to have made the playoffs it wasn't to be.

 

BUT....

We are so far advanced with preparations for next season that it is the most positive I have felt about a new season in Ten years

We have three league clubs confirmed for pre season home games, We already have a number of signed contracts and 100% commitments from players for next season. Shirt sponsorship is done and we have an increased budget to spend on the pitch this summer,

 

Season 2014/5....Here we come !

Is it true that the club shop will be selling a new line of merchandise for those supporters who can't handle losing a game...?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

....a blue and white rope with a noose tied at one end.....  ;)

 

Personally, I was disappointed but hey ho...an end of term attitude shown by some players that maybe have not been asked back...I dunno...it was a forgettable end to a forgettable season.

 

And now to look forward............

Some people may not have been able to attend the Q&A, like myself. So instead of dismissing MBs post as inaccurate can you please tell us the accurate situation regarding only having 2 subs and no youth on the bench. Surely this forum is also a place to raise such points.
