Maidenhead awful today, Devonshire has been lining up with a more regressive lineup each game so far, today was a flat 442 with two CBs and two CMs in the midfield, and two target men up top. No pace or much in the way of technical ability, Devonshire really needs to start Mensah and get over his fear of starting anyone who makes something happen in attack.
Since reforming, we've topped the league thrice after three games in the Conference: 2014/15, 18/19, and now 19/20. We finished 9th and 15th previously I believe, but no-one remembers final positions when you're mid-table. Still very fine to set the pace in this way, and doesn't do us harm during any barren periods that may ensue.
Wrectum now can't leapfrog us on Tuesday thanks to their late, late defeat too, so if our traditional disallowed goal there is disallowed, thereby being allowed due to the logic of double-negatives, we'll be on cloud nine. We typically play them early on though, and they typically start with confidence. Very pleased tonight after winning in fairly ugly fashion.
Do any websites offer the Conference scores in good time, along with attendances? The National League website has decided against showing such fripperies when we all know the turnout on the terraces is more important than any poxy ol' scoreline.
Just got back. Only talking point has to be the red card.. from the away end it just looked like Grant has clipped Worgan's heels as he's running towards the edge of his box to distribute?*IF* it was that then surely just a yellow?
But, totally stupid from Grant to do that and give the ref a decision, and in the process totally ruining his good start to the season after we were all just starting to forget how hopeless he was last season
We were pretty poor up and until our goal.. but without Dover looking all that threatening. , Hughes also bottled it with a very early double sub and going 5 at the back after just 50-odd mins, we lost any sort of attacking threat with Harris off and just hopeful punts to Hooper.
Finally, incredibly annoying to lose points for the second time in a week in injury time.
Pleased to share the points at Sutton today, took a two goal lead early on, Sutton then got back into the game and pulled one back. They levelled early in second half but we rallied again and I think apoint each was fair. Still unbeaten, thanks to Sutton for their hospitality.
Unbeaten in three and three very different performances. We look like a team with a lot of new players and it’s going to be a few games before things settle. Aldershot and Hartlepool on the road next will tell us a bit more.
2 away trips to sides that just came down, grabbed a point after being behind both times, played well. Should've had more from the game against Pantomimehead last week 'n all. No bedwetting going on around here (yet)
