With another international break forced upon us I’ve taken the opportunity to make my first visit to my local non league team: Wingate & Finchley are at home to Corinthian Casuals in the FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round. A mile walk from home and a half decent bar: should be ok. Went to a lot of Slough Town and Windsor & Eton games when I was younger with my mates, always a different experience to watching QPR!
I, along with pretty much everyone else, wondered what the hell the club were thinking when the guy was signed but he has won me over with his recent performances. 100% commitment and dedication to the team, combined with increasing confidence to get forward when he can. Not the most skilled player to put on the shirt by a long long way but he gives it everything he has in every game he plays and that’s good enough for me!
Thought both were excellent tonight along with Dickie: a few great last second tackles (despite Norwich squealing for penalties), lots of brave blocks and headers, and protected the goal from the numerous crosses coming in from the wings.
It seems that Dickie gets all the plaudits whereas Barbet and Cameron frequently get little credit on here: tonight all three played really well. Would stick with three at the back from now on.
Anonymous today and making less impact game by game: surely time to pick players who want to at least play the rest of the season with us. He’s best suited to being an impact player off the bench to run at tiring opposition defenders as he clearly isn’t bothered to give his all over a full game nowadays.
Well it looks like I've got myself a new job in Hendon and will move to North London, an area I don't know too well really. Has anyone got any good recommendations on nice areas to live in that general area?
It seems some fans have decided Liam Kelly is no better than Lumley and couldn't possibly be our main keeper and that we have to buy another one.
Kelly has played just 6 league matches and 3 cup matches for us. We've shipped plenty of goals in some of those games but I cannot remember many major mistakes by Kelly at all. So I wonder why some are so quick to write him off so quickly: surely its not because he's not the tallest? Seems odd to me.
