Im with DaveU on this one. We always perform against the better teams. We never seem to raise our game against the "lesser" teams / drop down to their level hence some of the recent results.
I'd have thought we'd prefer Saturday, we'll take a few hundred if its on which will neutralise the crowd too. And no midweek into Sarf Larndarn for the players which would be a bitch in the traffic around there.
I thought I would give you an update from the ground. The good news is that the pitch has not frozen and I doubt that it will freeze tomorrow. It has been playable at 3pm every day this week, I guess that is one of the benefits from our warmer London temperatures. At the moment we have not had the heavy snowfall predicted and we have a light covering on the pitch. I would say at the moment the game has a good chance of being on but we are in the lap of the Gods. If we eventually get the heavy snowfall later today or tonight then we will have to reassess the situation. All of the payments and roads around Dulwich are pretty much snow free. As mentioned at least the pitch hasn't frozen so it is a question of how much snow we have to get off the pitch to make it playable, at the moment its not very much but that might change later or overnight.
Sounds positive but I guess we just have to see what happens over next 24 hours
Just a couple of points 'oh wise one' Walton and Hersham aren't in bottom 4, it's Walton Casuals, and we nearly lost at home to them! And Hythe were in the bottom 4 when we played them at home albeit with games in hand Apart from that you're a genius!
Oops...I've amended the Walton mix up and thank you. It merely strengthens my point.
I've merely taken the top teams as they are now (I would suggest a Jan figure would be a better indicator than earlier in the season). I don't think Leatherhead were top 4 when we played them. In fact to work out such permutations would be far too difficult.
Suffice to say there is nothing suggesting that the point about performance against top teams as opposed to bottom ones is true. People may think we have done better but the results do not bear that out.
Warm Regards from the Darling of the Messageboards who has seen a verifiable 204 different teams play at home.
