Put another 10p in the meter Guv! 

GRS67 - Is that referring to the floodlighting, you did say yourself that London Colney had seen an upturn recently and it looks like the Club mean business under their new young and ambitious boss Jack Metcalfe. It was surprising to hear that the hallowed Cotlandswick playing surface was in such poor condition, as well as the floodlighting, or is that just sour grapes.

That's disgusting isn't it, maybe you should just cancel the game in protest

😲 It all continues to get more and more silly every day.

Well done 👍

We had 9 players out through injury or unavailable and despite the result played them off the park as we have done in ALL our games since Raks arrival. 

Sour grapes? No, it was a friendly, had it been a league game under those conditions then different story.

Up Next! On Saturday we welcome Colney Heath to Silver Jubilee Park for a behind closed doors friendly. 'The Magpies' have enjoyed success over the last two Curtailed seasons and look to be one of the clubs that'll be rewarded with a promotion place in May

Yes, I do see your point about the floodlights and pitch at London Colney however would you have said the same had Edgware Town won the game:

FT

'The Wares' 0 Colney Heath 4 Despite being a friendly, the match was a ill tempered affair in which the game threatened to boil over several times.

Despite the scoreline a makeshift 'Wares' side kept playing their passing style of football.

Unfortunately our habit of conceding poor goals continues with four conceded in the first half.

Btw since I'm from Canada I think about using one of the bookies recommended on https://wetten.com/ca/sports-betting/ that are legal for Canadian players.

Unfortunately our habit of conceding poor goals continues with four conceded in the first half.

Indeed a poor presentation of Edgware Town. The team must analyze their weak points as soon as possible if they want to avoid another big loss in the next game.

GRS67 - The goalkeeper certainly isn't best pleased with the defence is he:

Unfortunately young Charlie Patmore 17 has had a awful time in the friendlies as Edgware have conceded 19 goals in 5 games. 

Clearly an area Rak and his team must work on before next August.

Sounds crazy but take away the 4 goals 3 of them gifts and overall our performance wasn't bad at all. 

We certainly passed the ball more than Colney Heath and possession was pretty much equal. 

 

What we were guilty of is lax defending and goalkeeper errors which has been the case throughout all 5 post season friendlies.
