Although the league must be the priority, it would be nice to win a cup OR TWO.

Be interesting to see what our line-up is.

 

 

 

 

COME ON TOWN - TALLY HO.

Is that the most changes ever from one game to the next? :o  Looks like we threw in the towel with regards to this cup before the start.Understandable considering fixtures coming up,but i think we should have made the supporters that travelled tonight  more aware that this would be a reserve fixture.

Totally agree on all points. That must be a first.

Your youngsters did you proud trying their best and making Ashford work hard for the victory. Nice to see you there and hope we looked after you o.k and you all had a safe journey back.

I've seen far worse performances from a full first team and Ashford Town hospitality was top notch.

Disgraceful.

Supporters made the effort, ......... But the Club clearly, did not.

 

( not blaming those selected )

Have to agree. What is the point of us reaching a Cup Semi Final if we don't intend to win the competition?

Maybe that's why we lost the quarter final.

Maybe we should treat the middlesex 'charity' cup as a reserve competition every season.Then put the first team out in all rounds of the  middlesex 'senior' cup?.That way everyone would know how we would be approaching the different competitions.Squad/youth players would get more chances to impress,and we would have a better chance of winning the Senior cup more often if the first team solely concentrated on that competition?

My only gripe is not being aware we weren't taking a first team there. Living near Cambridge, I have to pick and choose what games I make it to, and this was not very enjoyable.

In addition, I persuaded my 80 year old father in law and 9 year old daughter to come .. having witnessed that they are probably less likely to come to an Enfield game in the future.

 

Great to see Ricky back from injury though!

Exactly Andy who indeed sanctioned it,I bet we will never know.

It was a first team fixture 1/4 final of a cup and Ricky making his comeback after 6 months out with a very serious injury,so how do our management team react simple none of them showed up not even the Physio..

Very Poor i.m.o.

Listened to the manager talking after the grays game about the Ashford game and at no time did he say he would be fielding almost a team of under21 players.

I think this showed a total disregard to the competition and a total disregard to the fans that travelled to Ashford. 

But having said all that I am not blaming any of the players who pulled on the shirt Tuesday evening they gave there all.

Up The Town

Same team had it been the final? Of course not.

 

LS. the reserves/ under 21s/ youth have their own cup competitions.

So do Premier league reserve and youth teams,but most clubs still choose at least one cup competition in which to rest the first team and put out a mostly second string team. (ie..Carling Cup)..Maybe the middx charity cup could be our 'carling cup'..Although the manager normally still turns up even when he plays the second string. ;)

But ETFC is in the Ryman League.

So because we are in the Ryman league, we can't highlight one of the many cup competitions we compete in as a chance to blood some youth and sqaud players in the first team?

Some, not all.

To be fair, to paraphrase BQ he did say in the after match video, he was going to give some of " the lads a run out " who don't always get an opportunity.

 

If they had won I doubt if there would have been so much discussion.

That said it does not stop me sympathising with the frustration and disappointment of those who gave their time to go to the match.
