    Well Windlesham. We did outplay Charlton for 45 minutes, but to win a game of football you need to do that for the full 90. Unfortunately we didn’t do that.

    The warning signs were there in the first half. We were especially prone to issues when Charlton spread the ball wide. I lost count of the number of times our full backs (and especially poor…[Read more]

    Well. Where did that win come from? A win is a win, but now that the initial euphoria has subsided, I can’t help feeling that it just delays the inevitable. We conceded three goals, two of which were virtually immediately after scoring ourselves, and one straight from the KO. Such defending shows defensive and mental frailty. OK we scored one more…[Read more]

    Talking to some Millwall fans after the game, they think we were the better team. Personally I’m fed up with hearing that this season. We’re defensively OKish. In midfield we’re OKish on our day, but it depends who plasy there. Up front we’re severely lacking at best.

    Yes it could have been different if Piggott had scored in the first minute…[Read more]

    Singapore. I think any fellow Adelaide wombles may need a few beers to dull the pain of any “tales from KM” this season. Enjoy yourselves.

    Only 4003 there on Saturday including 220 odd from Burton. And there were plenty around me saying this could be the last time they come this season. Whether you say they are fair weather fans or not, attendances aren’t looking too good.

    The worst thing of all is that you can’t blame them. Going down with some fight is OK, but on Saturday there…[Read more]

    Wow! Wow! Wow! With cup football, there’s always the chance the minnows can sneak a win, but if anyone predicted us doing it in such style, they’re lying through their yellow and blue teeth.

    Walking to the ground 45 minutes before KO, you could hear that Kingsmeadow was already rocking from several hundred yards away. Credit to the fans who…[Read more]

    Here’s my best moment of Saturday’s game. Ramsey’s knee slide to the edge of the area when we equalised. He really does seem a quality keeper, and I love it when players show some emotion.

    My worst moment has to be THAT miss by Jervis. We could easily have gone in at HT 3-1 up. Sure Ramsey was by far the busiest keeper in the first half, but…[Read more]

    Liam is spot on. Not playing the likes of Trotter and Soares is paying off. I have to say young Hartigan is a joy to watch. He’s an unassuming player, who doesn’t really get the credit he deserves. He does the simple stuff well, but it’s his vision that really makes him stand out. I hope he continues to get a run in the team.

    Up front Appiah and…[Read more]

    I can understand the frustration to those fans who went to Charlton, but I can also understand Wally’s tactics. I may not agree with them though.

    He knows he’s in a desperate situation, therefore it is safety first. “Don’t get beat” is his mantra, and the rest can follow. He needs every point he can get, and being unadventurous will do if we…[Read more]

    Observations from the Rochdale game…

    The jury is still out on Wally’s appointment. His “joke” tweet certainly hasn’t helped him cement a base to gain the trust of the fan base. Perhaps only results will do that. If we’re still in Division One next season, he’ll have done what he’s been asked to do.

    The squad is bereft of depth. With Pigott…[Read more]

    Devon. If Bassey and Wally butt heads, there will only be one winner ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Colum replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    Bloody hell. I should have kept quiet! Only the date/time to be rearranged now ๐Ÿ™
    Still at least we’ll have Wally and Glynn up to speed by then, and hopefully some new signings.

    I’d quite like Man Utd at home. It would be a delight to see Mourinho’s miserable sulking face at KM, and the way they’re playing this season, I’d fancy our chances. After that, then I’d take Arsenal away. Knowing our luck this season though, we’ll get Guiseley away, with the game switched to 12pm on a Sunday!

    Walking past the dressing room yesterday after the game, and you could hear the lads were buzzing. And rightfully so. That second half was as good a 45 minutes as we’ve seen in awhile. Yes both our goals had elements of luck, and Southend were a shadow of their early season form, but who cares. A win is a win.

    That said, the result only papers…[Read more]

    I for one would like to see him offered the opportunity to say goodbye properly at a home game. The treatment he got from a small minority at the end of the game last Friday was nothing short of appalling. He deserves so much more than that.

  • Colum replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 4 months, 1 week ago

    Agree 100% Cape Cod. You weren’t at the game on Friday, but there were a sizable minority of our fans singing, “You’re not fit to wear the shirt” for about the last ten minutes – until we scored that was. Plus some fans showed their frustration to the players as they came over after the game. That was probably the straw that broke the camel’s back.

    Talking to a Haringey fan before the game, I gave them more than a 50-50 chance of getting something from the game. How close I was. Playing the game away, on a 3G pitch and in terrible conditions, it was never going to be pretty.

    We started brightly taking the game to them, but the old problems remain. We pass sideways WAY to much. Play is so…[Read more]

    The BBC has exclusive access to all FA Cup games at the moment, so expect unless there’s a Don’s fan with an illegal live video feed, you’re stuffed. Guess you could always try iWollow if they cover cup games.

    I think it’s about time to remember Barnstonworth United. Compared to them, our plight isn’t half as bad. Just look at the first 7-8 minutes to cheer yourself up ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Colum replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 4 months, 2 weeks ago

    Take the positives. We scored a goal and we’re not bottom of the table, but that’s it. The players tried hard, but came up short again. We were good in the first 45 without being outstanding, but for all the pressure and possession, we didn’t really have that many chances. Hanson scored a goal and the Shrews didn’t seem to show any real threat.…[Read more]
