Re: What do we want ?

It'd be nice to find some games enjoyable. If you took the League 2 Play Off final as mid-point, I'd reckon that I saw a much higher proportion of games that were enjoyable to watch before it than I have since. League 1 was ok, but the following seasons under Still and Burnett in League 2 were mostl...

Re: Play Offs

I’m not getting why we should be dismissive of teams who have a financial backer yet it’s alright we now have one ? We’ve all seen how shit the footy is without a backer. The bit that is being dismissed is that it would be an amazing achievement for a little club. It isn't because they've had someo...

Re: Daggers Thank You

The word 'cancer' may have been too strong .. but, Steve Thompson didn't think twice when he aimed that self same word towards a certain person/supporters club in a forum meeting, and refused to apologise for using it. Again, there was no need to refuse the SC to hold the SC player of the year awar...

Re: Barrow

Yesterday was the first time I've been to a game for a while, and I won't be rushing back based on that. It was so negative and so dull. It's says a lot that the only real highlight was the linesman getting flattened. 3-5-2/5-3-2 just does not work with the players we had out there. Nunn isn't a win...

Re: Lamar Reynolds

Might sort his confidence out. Hope he gets a good run and a few goals. Think we should give the kid a break really. A break from what? He's just flat out not good enough. You've slated much better players in the past. If we're not getting shot of him at the end of the season then I'd be very surpr...

Re: Everest Challenge

Going to give this a bump, with just over a week till then if climb.

If anyone wants a bit of an incentive to donate, I'll be climbing 48 metres in one go (we'll 4 lots of 12 metres one after the other) as part of this.
I'm not a fan of heights so will be suffering g.

Thanks

How come we had to play on without Jon nurse and Andre Baucard when they got called up ?
Because you have to have a few players called up, not just one at a time.

Re: Havant & Waterlooville

I appreciate it was another Stilly cliche, but it is probably time to wheel out his "never too high, never too low" quote here. Saturday we won 3-0 at home, and suddenly we are worldbeaters. Last night we lose 3-0 away and today the B&D Post headline is "Daggers endure disastrous defeat at Havant"....

Cheers Steve, and thanks Sussex Dagger (I think it's you that's donated as well).

Everest Challenge

Some on here will know that I've been part of Scouting in Barking & Dagenham for somewhere in the region of 30 years. Our District is running a fundraising climbing event on 23rd March. We're hoping to get as many of our young members as possible to spend a day climbing and to reach the height of Mo...

Re: Your line-up v Sutton?

May not have had a better record if your appearances fact is correct, but he has always shown himself to be more of a threat. No one has said he’s a top quality scorer for this level that is guaranteed goals, he’s just better than the others we had that deserved a shot when the others were playing ...

Re: Your line-up v Sutton?

Same game as you. Because you dont dispute that he didn’t win anything in the air and saw him miss a sitter. Point I’m making is if Mullings had missed that sitter and win nothing in the air, he’d be getting a dogs abuse. The ref was a joke. 4 times he pulled play back to give us a foul when we had...

Re: Gutless performance

Hoyte must have gobbled off and Taylor has retaliated by dropping him altogether. Fair enough but he has persisted with players who are nowhere near as good or as experienced Hoyte. I’m sure the last game Hoyte played in we won. You'd be wrong then. The last game he started was the loss to the Orie...

Re: Gutless performance

Just think Hoyte at RWB would make more sense than playing the teams second highest goal scorer (Mcqueen) there and taking away his threat from further up the pitch,where we need him! Round pegs in round holes and all that, Hoyte is surely a better defender than Mcqueen? But he's not a wing back ei...
