Having read the official club article regarding the Academy's achievements I will be interested to see whether any of the young players mentioned will be given a chance to grow in the first team.

Assuming that the playing manager remains unchanged I am not holding my breathe!!!!! We can only wait and see.

If we continue with Andy and Mario I’m afraid that will show a complete lack of ambition…. I don’t think I can stand another season travelling miles to watch that dross… can you imagine playing National League hoofing the ball miles in the air and defending like a circus team with no organisation or tactics…. Thanks Andy and Mario  we had some fun this year but if we are to progress we need a total overhaul of the way we play….. Enfield are a big club in this division… maybe not in attendances but certainly a place where good players would want to come… the stadium the support and run by good people…. We have seen what can be done with lesser players but great organisation with Cheshunt… now it’s our turn… let’s get that great organisation and tactical awareness with our quality players and let’s move forward….

It was interesting listening to Andy's post play-off interview. Whilst I have criticised him in the past, I actually agreed with what he had to say. Like it or not, it seems there is a way to maximise your chances of promotion from this league and that is to play direct football taking into account the condition of the pitches towards the end of the season. He comfortably got us into the play-offs and from there it was a lottery - with a very direct Cheshunt team having that bit of luck. Worthing were able to play a passing game at home on their 3G, but had to change things when playing away. Unfortunately I think we're in for more of the same next season. Getting the ball down and trying to pass it around didn't work for very good footballing sides like Lewes and Folkestone. Its going to be very tough to get into the play-offs again next season, and expectations are now understandably high. It will be interesting to see who we retain and who we are able to recruit.

What bit of luck did Cheshunt have?

In the Final? Well, the goal-line clearance on 87mins, or the disallowed Hornchurch goal in the 90th minute with the ref blowing for a foul by virtue of the Cheshunt player flinging himself into the air rather theatrically. I would put both of those incidents down to luck rather than skill.

A goal one clearance is tantamount to luck and a player flinging himself into the air rather theatrically? It happens nearly every week in nearly every game, especially players suffering with the after effects of drinking too much falling down water.
