    I’ve decided to spruce up the web-site a wee bit (even with our new logo – any comments?). Another new feature is the single thread forum, so you can jump on and have your say, ask a question or just read what is being said. As I always say the forum is only as strong as what you make of it, so I would urge you to contribute and regularly to keep it all worthwhile. BTW, if you want to check something in the old forum it is now archived and the link is below… Okay let’s hear from you …

    I have been disappointed coming away from a few games this season, but I have always been able to cling on to the fact that we were playing high tempo, trying to pass the ball and were completely different to the dross dished up for much of last season. Yesterday I came away angry, because that was ‘dross reunited’!

    I thought the three comedy goals conceded against Walsall was enough for an entire season, but the Charlie Cairoli defending was back at full tilt yesterday – each goal was a car crash, King for the first, the entire back line for the second and Deji for the third. Woeful stuff…

    However, I wouldn’t mind if we had stuck to our recent play going forward, but even that disappeared. The ‘wardrobes’ were back in force, midfield was bypassed because no one was showing for a pass, and we ended up punting fruitless long balls to Pigott and Appiah.

    Once again “gallant little Wimbledon” fought back to almost rescue a point, simply through force of will rather than any tactical adeptness. However, I for one am sick of “gallant little Wimbledon” defeats, I want a solid defence, a creative midfield and strikers who will score when presented with a decent chance.

    No wonder the manager was angry at that display…

    Unfortunately I’m missing my first home game tomorrow since still working in China – so no prematch chewing the Dons fat tomorrow Windlesham. I’ll be cheering the boys on from Beijing. I just hope the ref doesn’t disadvantage us as he did at the Fleetwood home game last season. Let’s have those 3 points! COYD!

    Looking forward to tomorrow as the second in a series of matches against teams around us in the table. Historically, Scunthorpe have been an open and attacking team, generally in and around the playoffs. However, this season has not gone well for them, winless since the opening day of the season and with Stuart McCall now at the helm. After their defence has been shipping goals for fun they will welcome playing against our misfiring strike force (what is the opposite of the irresistible force meeting the immovable object?!)

    After a dominant performance against the Gills, three points tomorrow will see us in the top half of the table. However, Kingsmeadow has not exactly been a fortress for us this season – three points and a clean sheet would be great, but I’d be happy with another dominant performance allowing the Footballing Gods to decide whether we are worthy of their blessing…

    Liam and Singapore, if you fancy catching up for a pre-match chat then I should be at the ground by 13:45…

    COYD!!

    got mixed emotions so far this season as defensively i think we are great but attcking i dont think we have enough of a goalscorer. pigott is great but he isnt a 20+ goal a season striker, and for me we have nothing else as kwesi is just a sick note and i dont think hanson or jervis are league one quality, hope they prove me wrong.

    Yesterday’s result will allay some of the fears that had been building after a set of poor results. We couldn’t afford to miss out on 3 points yesterday, against a side tipped to struggle at the start of the campaign. Fortunately the team added an end product to another promising display and for the time being we sit in mid-table.

    Saturday will be another hurdle to overcome – winning at KM against another average-looking side this season in Scunthorpe. It will be good to a have a full week for recovery before “going again” (in true manager-speak).

    Let’s hope, like yesterday, we can turn a promising display into another win and can get some real momentum into our season.

    We have issues in front of goal, but it is amazing what picking up points can do for squad morale. This squad looks good enough to finish mid-table IMO, if they can just keep the confidence they have started the season with, and confidence will only come from turning good performances into wins…

    COYD!!
