    Today’s Performance

    One more thing I did forget about from Saturday and it's just come back to me... Why have we reverted time and time again to the old PT trick of stick 11 men in our own box every time the opposition has a corner or attacking free kick? I lost count of the number of times we picked up the ball...

    So quoting and commenting on the first line of my comment above and proving the last line ("...That sort of attitude is exactly why Brexit happened!") Remainers really are walking clichés and the gift that keeps on giving...

    Does he stay or go ?

    Accrington, Rochdale, Shrewsbury and Wimbledon - these are four teams who, in my opinion, have less resources and inferior players to us, so I'd suggest keeping us up isn't a "minor miracle". I'd say that there are about 7/8 teams in the division who clearly have better resources and players to...

    Kentbattingcollapse 2.0

    Great win. Made massive hard work of it, but made no difference to the points which is the main thing as think we took full bonus points. Such a shame we threw away that first game, otherwise we'd be in poll position to do what Essex did a couple of years ago - certainly nothing to fear in Div1...

    Kentbattingcollapse 2.0

    Can’t believe that Kent have made such work of this and could throw away another game in a week! At least we had got a chance now. Watching the stream from Warwickshire CCC on my 50” screen with BBC Live Events synced with the comms and a nice beer!

    Great job Andy, great job

    I wouldn’t necessarily rule out or be against him returning as manager or in some capacity - he is still a young man in manager terms, but not next season or any time soon. However, he could easily gain more experience with Dover or other teams and come back one day - he did a good job with the...

    SORT OUR FUCKING HOME RECORD OUT, STEVIE

    I can see us being nervous and lose to a poor Plymouth side on Friday as they’ll probably be fighting and defending like their lives defended on it, will be well drilled by their manager and probably like Shrewsbury be able to manage a game and employ gamesmanship which is vital in a relegation...

    SORT OUR FUCKING HOME RECORD OUT, STEVIE

    I had 20 quid on us to go down when we got relegated at Wycombe, which required about 6 results to go against us and was about 20/1. Sadly, most of it went straight on my league two season ticket, so not a lot gained!

    Why i am against VAR

    I’ve always been for VAR or technology where available for clear line decisions - ie did it go out before a goal was scored, did it cross the line, offside etc. and clear violent conduct missed by the onfield officials - ie a punch, stamp or head butt. For me, VAR isn’t working for judgement...

    Today’s Performance

    I agree that Hamlon was the only bright spark yesterday and has been recently. With Eaves going and dependent on who we get in, we should be looking at him being our main man next season. Lovell’s subs were bizarre - I rate List above some of those playing (Burke for example) but bringing him on...

    Today’s Performance

    If we could somehow win on Friday and the teams below continue their losing forms, I’d say we’d be pretty safe. I’d drop Eaves and Holy provided there is no chance of them being here next season and any of the loan players who are out of our reach or clearly not good enough (Burke is probably...

    Today’s Performance

    I get the impression with Eaves too. Presuming he hasn’t signed a contract with someone that we aren’t aware of (can he do that?), I’d have thought he’d want to have a barnstorminng last 6 games as surely teams are watching him? If he is outstanding for the last 6 games whilst scouts are...

    SORT OUR FUCKING HOME RECORD OUT, STEVIE

    Fully agree with Bromley. It’s not just about today, we have been woeful in a number of games - and seemingly more and more recently against some rubbish teams, including Shrewsbury today, who were better than us, but pretty useless as far as I can see with the main difference being they scored...

    Jacob Rees Mogg

    Remainers are exceedingly bitter bad losers. Farage, like him or loathe him, is one of the most important, talked about and effective politicians of recent times, so his setting up a new party to run in the European Parliament elections is a big story and received appropriate coverage. You do...

    I have to confess that the "statistician"/complainant is my cousin. I have contacted him to disassociate myself with him, but to be fair to also applaud the mischief making!
