Thought I'd start one as I've not done one this season, and maybe that will change our luck
Cold crumb of comfort is that they've let in 10 of their 14 goals this season away. Otherwise a 0-0 would be a cracking result for us. A clean sheet would be a massive confidence boost if we can't chalk up a win.
Just a brief travel note about tomorrow as there is a revised Thameslink service, running every half hour on the Wimbledon side of the loop only. If you're coming from anywhere between Mitcham Junction and Carshalton you need to get a Southern service and then change at Sutton.
I saw a pair of MK Dons scouts in the stand for the Villa match. What on earth they made of that I don't know, except that if they are ahead towards the end it would be unwise to take all three of their likely scorers off and try to park the bus. Sutton's late subs on, Patrick and Kasimu really looked up for it in contrast to the players they replaced.
I noticed something in that game I hadn't been looking for. I was told to watch the Villa 58 Tommi O'Reilly who they think will become an EPL midfielder in a few years. He had the freedom of the centre circle to himself at times where he could recycle the ball, and of course that meant Sutton's midfield was not challenging. We all know Easty is a big loss from that unit, but if we don't have one man who can replace him then we need two men, and sacrifice a forward. Our defence has been poor but I think much of that stems from allowing opponents to dominate the midfield then play the pass to our less-defended wing.
Noteable improvements, peticuarly not collapsing after conceding even after some sustained pressure. More football and less hopeful hoofs. They are a good side so we have a good point. Though because of the position we are in, still a disappointing result.
We could have nicked it. Keep working guys, shades of hope today, keep working hard and we shall see.
I will add that Nguessan is starting to find his feet in this league. Now Eastmond is back it will be interesting which two he puts in midfield.
I think it was N’Guessan’s best game for the team. Matt has put a lot of faith in him up to now I can’t see him being left out any time soon. I believe it will be an Eastmond N’Guessan midfield for the majority of the games. I thought Kizzi and John had good games today👏🏻
ggl: So are we now saying we have a manager who is not in favour of bringing in loan players and if the board decided to part company with him they cannot afford to do so ?

historyboy: So sorry to hear about the passing of Eddie Clack. I Remember him well.

historyboy: Sad to hear of the passing of Eddie Cack, I remember him well. I think that the said photograph publishsed by the club, of him sitting next to Dave Hermitage, isn't him at all; I think the picture shows Micky Goodall. Compare other pictures of both.

scorpioeyes: It certainly would be 'convenient' for Dover to have the season washed out. if they fail to turn up tomorrow,we should be awarded the game and 3-0 to our goal difference.Why should we be inconvenienced by any attempts to rearrange the game?

Burtie: Hello chaps. Is there any intelligence about the crowd situation for the game vs Hartlepool on 22 May? Does the club have a position on supporters?

scorpioeyes: I think these odds are quite amazing. If I was a neutral looking at the recent form and upcoming fixtures,I'd make hartlepool or perhaps Torquay as fave for the title. To have 'pool at 9s and us as evens is bizarre.

valiant: Hello again! Can you tell me where the away seating is please? I thought it was behind the goal next to the away terrace but looking at the film on Quest I can't see it! Thanks.

pinewalker: There is a temporary stand at 45 degrees to the pitch behind the NE corner flag, and there is more away seating at the east end of the main stand both accessed via the away turnstiles.

neil: My father used to take to watch Queens Park Rangers back in the late 60's (I recall he knew one of the Directors at the club). I still have many programmes from that time through the 70's. Happy Days !

holmesdale96: Sorry to hear of Danny's death, a real loss. I saw him regularly during the 90's at his home in Streatham, always charged the same small fee for years, an absolute gentleman with his dear wife Rose. RIP Danny
