Hawkins or MacDonald ?

Recommended Posts

Definitely Hawkins.


Bit of Deja Vu today ? Stafford Rangers all over again ? We seem to have trouble coping with what I call the "method" teams.....3 large centre backs, or today two, although the giant goalkeeper made up for the other one ! They close down quickly & get the ball forward quickly.


A couple of unrelated points:-


a) the moaning old w*nkers have had a nice day out. A "classic" comment when we made a substitution was " can't we substitute the manager ?".........they obviously would prefer to be in the bottom 3 in the league....a*seholes !


B) the Kiddi fans singing in the first half " we hate Cockneys " Some sort of geography lesson maybe in order as, try as I might, I couldn't hear those Bow Bells !! Perhaps they though that they were at West Ham ??...well it's near the Thames anyway !


All the best to those who travel to the next 3 away games...hope you bring back some points & and also a home draw in the FAT 2nd round !

Never a free-kick for the first goal. That said, it was an outstanding free kick.


We weren't as bad as against Stafford, we created a few chances, just most of them were disappointingly close to the keeper, and had Sodje's chance gone in just before half-time, we may have made a better fist of it.


But if we're going to challenge the top six, consistency is the key. And we - like a lot of Conference teams - ain't quite got it.

On the plus side it was good to see De Bolla back on the pitch slinging in some decent shots and freekicks.

Also well played Jon Keeling, thoroughly deserved m.o.m. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/applaus.gif" alt="" />


For Kiddie, Harkness's first goal was a cracker and Blackwood looked a very good player in the first half although apart from one long range effort he didn't do much in the second half.

I was up at the Swanscombe end in the first half ( eventually ) and, apart from the we hate cockneys chant, as referred to earlier, encountered no one "giving it" even when Kiddi were 2-0 up....oh apart from the elderly lady who, until the safety officer ( or whoever ) decided that the game was not to be segregated ( despite the announcement on the website that it wasn't !) after the game had started, could not get a cup of tea until that time.


Now, whilst this may seem rather trivial, I feel that it does not show the club in a good light. Either the game is segregated and food & drink facilities are provided at the away end, or it isn't, and therefore away supporters can wander around BEFORE the game & get a beer/tea/burger.


As I said, it maybe a trivial point, but I don't think I would have liked it if roles had been reversed.
