League Cup Update

Recommended Posts

Just a few words on the game (sorry for delay - bit under the weather, probably after standing out in the rain in the 1st half!)

 

Good performance overall - Maldon although a league lower looked pretty good and I understand in and around the play offs.

 

We came out very determined, and had a great first 20 mins - I must confess to missing Biilal's cross (as was getting a cup of tea!) - just saw the header itself.

Aaron did some great runs and created Liam's goal. Our best 2 players on the night, but I wouldnt say anyone played badly

 

There were plenty of other chances and pleased with the overall team performance - in the second half there were a few great moments including a great one touch passing move on our right, and another move that culminated in a great MJ cross that would have been an amazing goal if Taffe had converted.

 

Subs were late - but probably rightly here - good for the 1st team to gel and get some confidence - and the 3 youngsters did all come on. Interestingly we ended with 3 x Centre Backs on the field - a sign of things to come?

 

Only frustration was the late conceding of a goal and then a few mins of Maldon pressure with a few close shaves, and their keeper up for a corner - in truth we should not have been in that position to allow them that opportunity.

 

Not commented on the recent forum activity, partly because not been at last few, but my tuppence worth is Andy has my backing - the interview post Kingstonian shows he agrees with a lot of the feedback, cares and wants to put it right. The great start raised all our expectations, but in May if I said we would be 3 pts off the play offs we would all have taken that - and the target is the play offs.

I agree that this season feels like a unique opportunity with a weaker league due to restructure, and the added complexity of the super play offs meaining that we SHOULD try and win the league - but the target was play offs and we are still on course. Andy said he is looking at new signings so lets see what December brings 

 

Up the Town!

With all the doom and gloom and negativity on this forum the club must be relieved to read a touch of optimism but it feels like Theresa May trying to sell her brexit deal..... would I have been satisfied with three points off the playoffs in may... No.... if the teams below us win their games in hand we will be bottom half.....  but as forum members stated that the negativity can't help I'm going to take a few months break from here and concentrate on supporting the team behind the goal hopefully that might help instead of moaning.....

I appreciate your sentiment Theo, but keep subscribing. Many of your recent posts have expressed what I believe to be what many others think. If we are accused of moaning so be it. The fact that we put a different points of view to some does not mean they should not be aired. We all have the club's well being at heart. 

Our optimism can soon be raised once we see action is being taken to relieve our concerns. 

Your analogy to Mrs May is well taken as is not just the prerogative of politicians to give platitudes instead of answers.

Hope to read more of your observations. After all we have enjoyed crossing swards in the past it nice to find ourselves on occasion.

I agree .. I always enjoy reading other viewpoints whether I always agree or not! 

 

We are in a blip - per haps I am more optimistic than others - but we all have the best interests of the club at heart

 

Cant make Carshalton Saturday so looking forward to reading everyone's views of the game ...
