Enfield Town V Harrow Borough

What a great way to start the new year!

By all accounts a well deserved win and an excellent all round team performance. We remain unbeaten at home this season, and over the festive season our team has delivered two wins and a draw at Met Police, who today won 1-5 away at Staines. Very well done to Andy Leese and the lads on a great run of results. Looking forward to seeing everyone at Worthing on Saturday.

Earlier in the season people were asking on this forum what had happened to Harry Ottaway. Whereabouts solved, he is now playing for Corinthian Casuals and today scored the winning goal against Walton Casuals.

Happy New Year everybody, let's hope it is a good one for us all.

Well I enjoyed that! All the lads played well. Could easily have been 3-0 at half time. In answer to your question RG, one youngster, Jack Hockney got on with about 10 mins to go. In that time he had 2 shots on goal and did well, out of all the subs I would say he stood out the most. I really don’t want to pick out any of the first eleven as I thought it was a real team effort and they and the manager deserve a pat on the back. Looking forward to the next game!

Good win, very comfortable, but Harrow were probably the worst team we've played this season.

 

Speaks volumes that Taylor McKenzie was named a deserved man of the match in a game when they really didn't attack us at all. Other candidates for me were Ryan Blackman and Mickey Parcell.

 

Jack Hockney did get on but was again played in midfield.

And dan was solid playing in his correct position centre half along side Taylor.

Why it has taken the manager until christmas to realise dans a centre half and not a left back when as fans we have been saying it for weeks i dont understand.

But Andy got it right today and the team played as a good solid unit and not individuals well done one and all.

Agreed Vauxhallman, I like Dan as a player, hopefully he’ll now play his rightful position. We have an even worse team on Saturday, so should be an easy win, maybe that’s the game when we’ll get to see Jack have a good amount of mins in his position. Do we know when Kirby is back and Liam from his holiday?

Thanks Andy, I’ve never seen that page before (even though I have that app on my phone), so I take it back, they are on good form at the moment despite being 22 in the league. Let’s hope their good form has a slip up on Saturday! Lol

Thought that we as a team, were great today. No one stood out as MOTM but collectively, we hammered them. Five or six nil wouldn't have flattered us, we were head and shoulders above Harrow who fought their corner but on the day just weren't good enough. I was impressed with Simon Thomas today as he put the effort into his performance and really bullied their back line and keeper.

 

If I was to give MOTM to anybody, I'd give it to Andy Leese for listening to what we've all been saying, which is get the ball on the deck and play some football. 7 points out of 9, playing the right way, it's been a great Xmas !

Credit where it is due. A good team and management performance but for the past 2 or 3 games many of the changes that have been made have been forced on the management.

 

We will discover whether a corner has been turned when we start playing the top clubs once more. I cannot wait to see how we deal with the likes of Folkestone at home.

Formed in 1936, Folkestone have had 65 years longer than Town to get their act together and move forward. Also, they didn't lose their manager and most of their first team squad in the close season, leaving a new manager to pick-up the pieces and build a new side. Forget Folkestone, we deservedly beat top club Dulwich Hamlet 3-1 at home, which is no mean achievement is it? "Credit where it is due"!

No chance of that LH.... even when we beat Dulwich it was posted we were lucky and they should of hammered us (what game were they watching)... and after a creditable draw at Imber court it was against a VERY POOR Met police side (who beat Staines 5-1 a few days after )... this forum has become split between those who dislike AL and his style of play and those who think he has done a very good job starting from scratch..... it's a shame we can't get new members posting to give some new opinions.....

A simple statement of fact Andy, they are a well established club and, after all that went on last summer, with BQ jumping ship and taking most of our players with him, it is no great surprise that Folkestone are ahead of us at this stage of the season. AL is working his socks off to bring us success, but it takes time, and it certainly doesn't provide encouragement or support for the cause, when certain individual are continually sniping at AL on here, with one even telling him to walk. Pathetic!
