Well done to Dulwich, play the game the right way and deserved champions. Well done to your support as well, coming on here and showing that you can win with a bit of class. If you ever have the misfortune to play sittingbourne again, perhaps you can teach them how to do it.
I agree with what others have said. I've seen Dulwich three times this season (both games against us, and the League Cup final) and I've been impressed. Even when we beat them 5-0, I didn't think that they played all that badly - certainly, we drew with teams who played worse. The League Cup final was the best game and atmosphere at our ground this season, and in general they seem like a well-run, friendly club.
They also seem to be a club on the rise once more. Their attendances seem to be rising (and no, I don't think it's just because of us) and if they can resolve the situation with their ground, they could be a strong position for the future.
Please do not feed the forum trolls (particularly the one named NWS).
Have to agree, well done to Dulwich and have to appreciate and respect them for being part of a memorable season (which obviously isn't over yet!)
When it comes to football there is an argument for knowing how to deal with victory as well as defeat. Pink Panther, Mishi and Beck Pink have all come on here and done their club proud and shown a huge amount of respect for us.
Whilst I appreciate there is often an arrogance surrounding us as a club, or at least a perceived arrogance in that we are "big" therefore we deserve to run away with the league etc We perhaps needed Dulwich this season to keep our feet on the ground.
As much as we'd like to think we lost it with our draws and bad refereeing decisions, the fact is Dulwich won it, this despite having to replay the Leatherhead game, the fixture pile up they had owing to the weather and their great cup run. They are a fantastic club and if we were going to come runner up to anybody I'm sure Dulwich would have been a preferred choice.
The faversham fans also get a mention for not even disputing that goal should have been disallowed, the Ramsgate fans for their reaction to losing to a last minute goal from King Then of course there are other clubs, whose fans, players etc have no interest in representing their clubs in any positive way, thankfully none of those clubs have made the play offs.
