I wont be happy with mid -table at all :o ..We have a manager and coach with vast experience and a playing budget and average home attendances both in the top 8 in the league..7-8th place will be sold and a decent base to mount a promotion challenge next season. Top 6 will be a good achievement since we are stating from scratch again.9th place and below will be a disappointing season for me.

Great to see the last few realistic comments. Yes I was also underwhelmed by Saturday's performance but early games are often a poor indicator and there are some short memories out there from those drawing comparisons with last season's team. Yes they finished the season well, but there were some  dire performances, particularly in the first two months, including Canvey, Burgess Hill, Harrow Borough and Hanwell Town. That was with a relatively settled side going into the season. In my opinion, the team did not begin to perform until we brought in Scott Shulton, John Muleba and Harold Joseph some weeks after. 

 

From what I have read, both Andy and Darren have stressed that this will take time and patience is needed. If they do get it right, and I think they have a good chance, believe me it will be well worth the wait.

I remember standing behind the goal at leiston two seasons ago and listening to a conversation and it went how much longer are the board going to give brad this football is garbage and we still have trialists and its October

One thing for sure Andy wont have trialists next week let alone October!! And in October i am confident fans wont be talking about watching Garbadge football.

Cut out all this negativity and just support and be proud of our club.

I am sorry but  I can only   repeat what I have previously said, that is " I only commented on what I saw".

In addition I never commented on the team until I saw it and it was not what many of you hyped it up to be. Consequently, I had to air my views which I will stand by until  proved otherwise, I repeat in 6/7 weeks time 

 

Yes a new players had to be found, but that is not unusual in fact it is more the norm although the number I admit was large in this instant  But if everyone of last years players had stayed then there was no guarantee that the new manager would have kept all of them. 

 

By the way, Theo,  I am in my 80's but I am far from being an old F..T nor am I blinkered. I feel as a member I can have a view and still be loyal to a club I have been associated with , god forgive me for saying this, before you were born. But we all have our cross to bear.

I can see both sides here .. Yes this is our Enfield but with such a new team there will be a transitional phase.

 

Too early to be that critical in my view, though good to hear peoples views here when cant get to that many games.

 

Darren Purse has been key at the back so his return tonight will make a huge difference.

 

Wasn't at the game but I've liked john K in pre season so wouldn't condemn him after 1 game.

 

I remember Sudbury away last year, Hendon and Canvey the season before -we have had some frankly awful early season games when we didn't have a new manager as an excuse.

 

My expectations would be to challenge for play offs again this season.

There was nothing in my posts suggesting that even tho I'm not sure what F.. T suggests ?

 

If anyone on here thinks the management signings are not up to Ryman premier standard please contact Andy with their list of 17 top class players who all happen to live in close proximity to Enfield who he has missed out on.....

that we have virtually exhausted this subject so as I've said, ad-nauIt seems seam, lets see where we are in 6/7 weeks time. After all I have already freely admitted that I was commenting on the one game I have seen. I also thought I had given the reasons for my disillusionment which was due to the difference between the numerous glowing reports I had read and the reality of Saturday's game as I saw it. However, perhaps, we should now all agree to disagree for the time being and see how things pan out. " when one falls down a hole it's wise to stop digging" Ps.. Theo you must be the only one who doesn't know the expression ""OLD F<<T" that is used for people of my age. Having reread some of my earlier comments I realise what an old "emission from my anus" I am becoming. Meant in the friendliest possibly way.

      Good to drawn at home in the FA Cup today. An interesting match for everyone to look forward to. Be interested to hear other Towners thoughts, hopes, expectations for this match, which is worth quite a lot of prize money for the winners.

      Despite heavy rain, after a mid-morning pitch inspection, todays League fixture against Harrow Borough at Earlsmead Stadium, is expected to go ahead, subject to there not being a deluge before kick off.

      Town have already played Harrow twice this season at the QE2 Stadium, beating their Middlesex rivals 2-1 in the Emirates FA Cup, and 3-0 in the League on New Year's Day.

      Todays third encounter will be far from a pushover, and Town will need to build on their recent improved performances and results, if we are to collect maximum points on this wet Bank Holiday afternoon. Good luck to Andy and the boys!  COYT

      After Saturdays amazing, incident-packed match at the Gallagher Stadium, which saw a superb all-round performance by the Town team, we go again against Maidstone United at the QE2 Stadium tomorrow (Tuesday) evening, with a place in the FA Cup 1st Round Proper, the prize up for grabs, for the winners of this replay.

      Whilst it was disappointing to concede an equaliser in the last seconds of added time on Saturday, we saw enough from Maidstone on Saturday to know they are a very good side, and it should be noted that their away league form is better than their home. The replay will be equally challenging as the first match, and we will definitely need to be on top of our game to progress.

      The Stone's, ninth in the National League, will be trying to reach the first round proper for the fourth season running, tomorrow evening, while Town will be looking for a win to create a bit of history themselves.

      Can we do it? You bet we can! Shock results happen all the time in the FA Cup. Town are unbeaten at home this season, have now gone eight games without defeat, are playing with plenty of confidence, and will be looking to make home advantage tell, in front of a large, noisy North London crowd.

      The travelling support for our guys at the Gallagher Stadium on Saturday was absolutely top-draw, up there with the best! Fantastic, well done everyone, let's have more of the same and raise the roof tomorrow evening. Our team deserves maximum support and encouragement for the task ahead!

      Good luck everyone! See you there.

      Let's hear it for Andy and the boys!

      The FA CUP comes to Enfield this Saturday and, with no Premier League games being played, it's a great opportunity for everyone to show local pride, and bring family and friends to the Queen Elizabeth Stadium, to cheer on local side Enfield Town against Harrow Borough.

      The winners of this match will receive £3000 from the Emirates FA CUP prize fund, and a place in the next round with a further £4500 at stake.

      Both teams will be very keen to win this match. Harrow have made a good start to the new season, taking maximum points from their opening four league fixtures. That was before Bank Holiday Monday, when they travelled to Hendon and got a very rude awakening, on the wrong end of a 6-0 thrashing. Not the kind of result wished for five days before a major cup encounter.!

      Form and early season league results count for very little in one-off cup competitions, where teams raise their game, a home draw can be a definite advantage, and why unexpected shock results occur very season. 

      This unmissable match will be a very close, exciting contest. Town Manager Andy Leese and our players will be well prepared for this important match, and will be very keen to progress in this prestigious money-spinning national competition. Let's get right behind them with plenty of noisy Enfield support and encouragement.!

      Good luck everyone. See you there.!

      Tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon Town extend a warm welcome to our opponents Met Police for our third Bostik League Premier Division fixture of the season at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium. KO 3.00pm.
       
      Last Tuesday evening, while we were losing 3-0 at Hendon in a challenging North London derby, the Blues went down by a similar margin, losing 4-1 away to newly promoted side Dorking Wanderers. The Met won their opening home match, beating Worthing 3-1 at Imber Court.
       
      Both teams will be looking to bounce back this weekend, after their disappointing mid-week defeats, and another very close, tight contest is in prospect.
       
      Next April is a long way off, there are 44 more league fixtures left, so plenty of points to play for, and Andy, Darren, and our new squad of players, deserve plenty of noisy support and encouragement tomorrow, as they battle to secure our first win of the season.
       
      GOOD LUCK, LADS!
