A shocking one actually
I always said I would try to be honest and I am not going to shirk that now. What a night!
Actually I missed the first goal – noone told me to avoid Richmond and having left Harrow at 5.50 I didn’t get to Kingsmeadow after some of the worst traffic I can remember until 20 minutes into the game. And you have to wonder which was worse, the traffic or the football?
Second half tonight was simply the worst football I have seen this season – and perhaps for many seasons. Of course there are lots of excuses with players out etc etc but ultimately it was one of those embarrassing nights. Difficult to pick anything good out really, Dean Papali finally scoring maybe – but otherwise?
It was men against boys. They were simply better than us in every aspect of the game. The final whistle couldn’t come soon enough.
We knew that getting anything from Saturday and tonight was a bonus – but having competed well against Chelmsford no one was expecting to get thumped like tonight.
I have said I believe in this squad – and I do and I also don’t think we will go down – however there are a number of players who need to take a look at themselves at present and ask why they are not playing to the levels they were a couple of months ago.
Enough said for now.
