Very poor display again from the Stones. If route one over the top doesnt work then we have no idea what else to do. We have let too many creative players go and replaced them with players of a lesser quality.
It definitky looks lke the play offs for us now and you have to go into those on form, at the minute I wouldn't fancy our chances against most of the top teams.
Couldn't agree more blacknamber. Clueless.. no idea.. no leadership.. no plan B.. just to name a few grievances i have with todays woeful performance. The league has gone now for defo, play offs are a lottery and i can't see where the next win is comming from! On the plus Watt the center half looked a good move getting him in. Wonder what he is thinking tonight, no pun intented!!
Its been said a million times but we have no pace or urgency in the team. When the opposition have the ball they are able to knock it around and pick a pass when we have it its like a hot potato and we lose it. The playoffs will be tricky unless we can find some form which at the moment seems very unlikely.
Team's been chopped and changed too much recently, needs time to settle down/in - still got plenty of games.
Also, inevitable come down after early/mid season optimism/big crowds/etc. We started to believe the title was ours for the taking. But then discovered every other team was treating a trip to the Gallagher as a cup tie (and their only ever chance to play in front of a decent crowd). We're going to have to work, and work hard, to win this league. The sooner we realise this, the better.
Yup bad day at the office, absolutely no direction today and created nothing! I know I keep harping on about Warren Whiteley, but why the hell did Jay let him go? He was direct, skillful, pacey, everything Rory Hill isn't! Jay's reasoning for letting Warren go was because it would hold back the development of Woolery!! At this level, 4-4-2, direct pacey wingers pinging in quality balls for Welford / King etc to get on the end of! What is the point of Welford getting to the bye line delivering crosses? Or long balls from the back for Welford and Boothy with their electrifying pace to chase? Plus side Watt was a different gravy today and a clean sheet!
What frustrates me the most is that we have one of the best playing surfaces in the league, and at the start of the season we were playing good passing football, but those players seem to have gone and replaced by players who can hoof it 50 yards up towards Welford. We might aswell have only paid to have the 3G installed in each penalty area with sixty yards of sand between them and saved ourselves a few quid!
Very poor performance today. Did we even get one corner? Created nothing, ran and puffed only in bursts. No shouting from players or touch line. If we had played until 9.00 pm we would not have scored.
not conceding was a plan no doubt it worked yeah well done, jay did a job in the week and got the player. Like munster says 442 it works fact! I know its a cliche thats football and we move on keep the faith boys maidstone f.c
is pretty football the way forward. We have got 5 forwards lets start attacking. Today 2 shots is not good enough. We played 3 forwards when we played away down there and bossed the game from start to finish. I do not say this is time for jay to go but we need to adjust how we play, most of the games we have played our best this year is when we are attacking why not give it a go. We are at the stage in the season what can we actually lose now? The title is Dulwich's to lose we have got to fight now and attack 3 points wins the league and you can only get 3 points by putting the ball in the back of the net.
