Re: Our back four

When Ashton was out with injury earlier this season I was not happy with Westbrook filling that role and regularly advocated a six foot plus player there. But Jacko more than makes up for his lack of height with his reading of the game in the same way that Dolman makes up for his perceived (by some)...

Our back four

When Ashton, Brown and Dolman have been in our back four we have always been solid and much of our success has been built on these three. Now after several seasons we have the right back position solved with Reynolds clearly the best we have ever had in that position. Added to that we also have an e...

Re: [ Tue 13th Nov ] v Hitchin Town, KO 7:45pm ESCP HOME

Got to say that was a game of two halves. Thought we were great in the first half, kept the ball on the deck, played some lovely stuff through the middle, plenty of movement through the front 3 and a great goal from Ben. Second half we gave the ball away in the middle far too much, and I was massiv...

Re: [ Tue 13th Nov ] v Hitchin Town, KO 7:45pm ESCP HOME

Talk about make it difficult for yourselves! Coasting after an hour then holding on at the end! Still, 1 point off the play-offs with 2 of the bottom 3 to come. Really happy with where we are at this new level. Shame about the cups but let's have a real go in the Hillier Cup. Would be a great night...

Re: [ Sat 10th Nov ] v Witton Albion, KO 3pm FAT2RQ AWAY

weaker squad or they coming up against better opposition? The squad is different, not necessarily weaker. Losing Fairlamb and Gyasi altered the way we were set up last season. Other than that very little has changed. We do miss a Robbins type player but they are hard to find. When Dan Holman became...

Re: Lowestoft away

Common sense has prevailed
Annoying thing is I can't make it, but would have been okr for the Tuesday night. But I will make the sacrifice for the greater good. Three games in next four against the current bottom three.

Am I correct in thinking this game goes ahead even if Hitchin draw FA Cup with Solihull today? Any replay would be on 20th Nov.

Re: Lowestoft away

Halesowen and Biggledwade both won today. So neither Diamonds or Lowestoft have a game in two weeks time.Will common sense prevail ?

Re: Lowestoft away

Lowestoft away now Tuesday 11th December . If Diamonds lose to Witton and Biggledwade win their match tomorrow then Saturday Nov 24th becomes available to play Lowestoft But let's hope that doesn't happen! Wouldn't that also need Halesowen to win in the Trophy tomorrow? Yes. I failed to mention tha...
