Re: Woking and strikers

Not going up did us well of course in the end as we got to piss the league the following year with an even better squad. Take your point though. Don't forget Innsy coming back and suddenly being a footballer too.

Re: Eastleigh (A) match thread.

I don't think 3 wins in 19 is meaningless. I accept that the threat of relegation isn't there as a motivator, but it should work the other way too, and actually give the players a bit of freedom to go and play without fear. This team showed in the Trophy semi-final, I think universally accepted as ...

Re: Woking and strikers

Garry was generally pretty good at finding strikers. Maybe our style of play back then suited them a bit more. Even when Rendell got injured in the first game of the season at Tranmere he managed to get in Dan GOALman. The only time we really struggled was when Holman left to join Cheltenham and we...

You're right, it certainly doesn't get easier. That said, not sure we always need to be in awe of these sides. You're joking right? How could we POSSIBLY expect to compete with the likes of Torquay or Notts County? We should probably get a commemorative DVD made of the County game to show how close...

Re: Form Table

Once again the cup disappointment is levelled as below par, and yet when it suits the narrative form in said competition is ignored. Once again you use the wins that got us to the semi-final of the FA Trophy to gloss over the abject failure of a performance in said semi-final against lower league o...

Re: Fake Tears

I think he's right back. He was notching assists for fun when he first joined. A lot easier to get an assist when you've got a striker to aim at. Would you rather aim at Davison, or our current most in-form goalscorer, Diarra? I'd rather he got an assist that wasn't being fouled for a penalty. I qu...

Re: Season Tickets

Fair enough about Aldershot. But you can’t really compare us to Reading and Soton as they have millions of TV money every season. Should we even be trying to make short term revenue from kids ( particularly young kids , lets say under 11's) ? In my opinion we should be building for the future- 3/ 5...

Re: We need a new start next season

Full time football should ensure a better calibre of player. Isn’t it the bigger budget that ensures a better calibre of player? I’m far from Kretschmar or Ferdinand’s biggest (based on enthusiasm, rather than weight) fan - but I’m quite uneasy with them being the examples of where the problem is. ...

Stage fright in an empty stadium, sounds like he’s lost most of the changing room. Players let him down big time but the buck stops with Dowse, stand by for RJs vote of confidence....

I'm intrigued by what makes for the definition of kneejerk in this. Some people, myself included, have been accused of being kneejerk for reacting to many of the recent defeats in a negative manner. So I certainly wouldn't call my reaction to today kneejerk because I've been pretty consistent with m...

Re: Trophy run

Quick question - would it have been better for Dowse to have lost away to Sutton or Bromley (where we were underdogs), than to have lost (badly) today? Are we ok to judge him factoring the run (including beating Torquay) or is it better to wet our pants because today was really really shit? FWIW I ...

So much noise, so many moments and such a brainless push that gave us the winning penalty :-) I’ve been at Macclesfield away, on a Tuesday night (0-0) when we barely managed double fi...

Are we really talking about keeping a player based on 1 game out of position against a poor Wealdstone team?

Re: Wealdstone FC v Woking Stream?

I could actually see Dowse retaining Block if he puts in more performances like that - he's really his sort of player imo and, like Dempsey, still very young... Not as a first choice, but I think the original plan for him once it was established he was essentially 4th choice in midfield and 3rd at ...

I see this as fairly low-risk. I doubt we are paying him much, if at all. The only risk is having another player in our bubble.

Odd signing for many of the reasons mentioned throughout this thread. Hope it goes well though, obviously.
