Re: Napa

To be fair to the manager, he won’t have made the selection in isolation. The lad will have been picked subject to his actual employer’s satisfaction that he was fit enough to play, so yes, while I agree the policy is normally like The Black Knight from Monty Python (“it’s only an arm!”) it’s not ne...

Re: BBC Surrey Commentary?

I love the comms on BBC Radio NE Hants as much as the next man (so much so that I had that on while watching the stream) but it really does boil my pish when Alderplop are given so much coverage and we’re the afterthought- even as they were summing up an away win 🙄

TBF it’s also the first time I’ve watched us at Alderplop without anybody throwing anything at me or threatening to kill me, so this is a very positive improvement

Re: FA Cup Stream.

Sicknote’s gotta be green with envy at these production values!
I’m expecting to see the balls on the touch line during actual play of course, but this is pretty good.

I just hope our team knows how important it is to beat them on the pitch.

Re: Match Thread - Halifax (Home)

The big disappointment for me has been Spasov!

The boy looks brilliant - calm and assured on the ball in tight spots, has made some great runs (added to a really good work-rate), but hasn’t had the ball given to him with a yard of space to get a shot away. I want to see this lad start shooting!

Cardsboard is as full of weapons as I could stand already, thank you! 😁 My view: Cook (bless him) is good, but he looks like an accident waiting to happen and even Shotton got a booking today because he got caught in the wrong place - and he oozes class, so showing that nobody’s perfect. Casey does ...

Re: Match Thread - Halifax (Home)

You know what? I thought Collier was decent today. Yup. He got beaten by an express-pace nippy winger. What RB hasn’t? He’s trusted as backup when the others load up the opposite box for corners and free kicks and mopped up well all day. He mainly passed to his teammates and cost us zero goals, incl...

Re: Match Thread Chesterfield (A)

It seemed to me with 20 mins to go, we were the team in the ascendency. We were moving the ball around well but without creating much in their box. Their defence were playing very deep and there was no space to get in behind them. I can understand Dowse's reasoning to change things so bringing anot...

Confidence is everything.
Good performance or not, getting kicked in the balls late on like that will hurt.
Tuesday becomes a big test.

Re: Match Thread Chesterfield (A)

I wonder if those of us who scoffed at Weymouth’s feelings of being hard-done by (I did!) now know what it’s like to feel robbed without actually having been good enough.

Re: Match Thread Chesterfield (A)

Match report:
We didn’t deserve that. Weekend ruined.
Ridiculously poor first goal.
Bit lightweight up top but played well.
Threw the dice towards the end with three at back. Concede sucker punch and get a shellacking.
Football is shit.

Re: government financial support

I think a bunch of our players were/are “pay-as-you-play” so actually playing matches costs money.
We may well have lost less money by not playing (I don’t know?) but would’ve had no income, so it’s a very careful balance as to how quickly we go bust without external support - or £12 ppv...

Re: Weymouth boss "dismayed by Woking's tactics"

TBF I think if their players had stopped fouling our players, and stopped giving away corners, we wouldn’t have pumped so many crosses into their box. If our midfielders had stoped pressing theirs out of possession and if our defenders hadn’t done heading and tackling - and if their players hadn’t k...
