This is probably not a good time to note we are now well into September - a time when the Stones have a bit of a habit of starting a long streak without a win. Equally, our current management team are hopefully much better equipped to deal with it that previous seasons. Reading between the lines, it is not difficult to see that lack of consistency is very much to blame, along with not enough ability in midfield. A short unbeaten run does not make a promotion run make.
Teams will beat Dorking if they are able to put them under pressure, on the occasions we did that they looked decidedly iffy and worried at the back, but we didn't do enough of that and lost battles all over the pitch.
Great report Porky - from an amateur bystander? Barrow won today!. Francoise sends regards COYS.
Cheers mate, still look back with great fondness to that long day out in Cumbria and pleased that Francoise is continuing to provide a service to you ! COYS !
A fair enough quote from John Still after the match "RUBBISH" He talks about some players who will not be continuing on the journey as they are just not good enough to produce their quality on a consistent basis. I guess at least 2 players will get their marching orders soon enough but there's another couple who need to up their game too if they are to have any future with the club. No names needed, it is obvious enough. This is not a time to be complacent oldboy. Dorking is not exactly a big club and yesterday's performance is unacceptable. Embarrassing really, with no excuses. The dynamic duo need to take action now.
Having seen our display at Wealdstone I was hoping that kind of performance was a one off beaten by the better side, but yesterday shows perhaps it’s more part of our overall DNA as a team. Hopefully some decent replacements come in. Speaking to a Ryan Johnson on the sidelines during the second half he was not happy at what he was seeing to say the least from his stand in and fellow team mates
Not really, I spend more money than most. I’m just saying what’s proven right in the end 😉 what was your take on today’s game oh enchanted one?
Spend more money than most. What does that mean?
Should of said spend more money than most 50/50 fans who pick and chose support. I attend most games in the session home and away and spend a fair wedge hence why I, or anyone else who has a similar commitment have a right to be annoyed with what they are served up on occasion. It’s easy being an armchair supporter!
