Re: Who would you like to see at Dagenham next season?

Ralston Gabriel has done pretty well at Boreham Wood since making the step up to National League. Knows where the goal is. I imagine Orient will let a few go. Someone like Alex Lawless might be worth a punt if we don't sign Loft. Knows this division inside out and could do a job despite his age. Bla...

Re: Daggers Thank You

I don't want this to come across the wrong way. It's just how I perceive things from the outside. Back when I started supporting the Daggers, the Supporters Club was a huge part of the club. Back then, social media and technology wasn't what it is now and they held a more prominent role. It used to ...

Should Peter Taylor be Daggers manager next season?

https://leewilsonfootball.blogspot.com/ I haven't written for a long time but had an urge to type out the thoughts swimming around in my head about Peter Taylor and the Daggers. I may keep this blog going intermittently if it goes down well but we'll see. Just something I fancied doing in my spare t...

Re: Barrow

I have nothing positive to say other than we are pretty much safe. I just hope scraping enough points is the only reason Taylor has been setting us up as he has for the past 2-3 months as it has been up there with the worst football I have ever had to watch from a Daggers side. What really upset me ...

Re: Next Season Squad

This talk of going up next season. We are absolutely nowhere near. The manager is not flexible enough with his tactics to give us a chance. I also don't think we are good enough player wise bar a few. The majority are good enough for a mid table side but not for a promotion chasing team where consis...

Re: Your line-up v Sutton?

In an ideal world, a team challenging at the right end in this league would not have Adeloye, Mullings, Kandi or Reynolds anywhere near the matchday squad. They all have big flaws in their games. They all have different strengths. I must say that from what I've seen of all 4, Mullings offers the lea...

Re: Gutless performance

I thought Loft had an off game today and unfortunately some of our mouthier supporters took exception to this and made him the 'agenda' for the day. He himself is not the problem. The problem is when you go away to Wrexham and play Loft and two other players with a very similar skill set in midfield...

Re: Taylor in Taylor Out

Must say, after listening to Taylor's post match interview, I'm more convinced now that Munns, McQueen and Smith were dropped for some reason other than tactical or performance in games. Reading between the lines, it sounded like a bit of a kick up the backside. Perhaps they've not trained as well a...

Re: Wrexham

What a rubbish line up. 5 at the back, which is fine, but then our 3 central players all effectively do the same job. You don't need Will Wright if Loft is playing. They do the same job in midfield and Loft will do it better. Also, if you are insistent on playing 3 CMs, you surely play Phipps ahead ...

Re: Aldershot

Just think sometimes the team selection isn't always clear - don't think Hoytey did much wrong whereas Nunn does seem to struggle positionally, and then on the left Gordon who's been our main outlet gets dropped so that Loft can play even after we kept a clean sheet with the 5-3-2 the week before. ...

Re: Least Enjoyable Home Game Since When?

First half the set up was all wrong. It was a back 5 with Wright dropping onto Goodliffe's toes whenever they had the ball, hence Barnet had the majority of the possession as nobody wanted to engage them. I have no ideas why we were trying to play Phipps behind the front two. He's excelled lately in...

Re: Halifax

Kosylo would have torn Gordon a new one. I’m guessing that’s why he didn’t start. Liam is one for the future. He needs to go out on loan to get some games. He’s started 15 for us this year, we picked up 9 points in those games. Agree with this. At first, I was a bit baffled when I saw the line up. ...

I would like to see Scott Doe come back if we lose our two loanee central defenders in the new year.

Re: Chesterfield

No No No to Tom Denton. Just no.

Hines would be a good buy. We're short on the wings, he's a local boy, he knows the club etc. Chesterfield fans are annoyed about losing him. I've read many who have written that he is their best player. It's a no brainer for me, as long as it's a short term deal.

Re: Taylor in Taylor Out

Happy to eat my words. Still feel that he didn't set us up well enough with what we had earlier in the season. Several selection decisions left me regularly baffled. However, he said that we'd be better off going forward in a few weeks once he sold Romain and he's come up trumps there. Long may this...
