Re: Who would have thought last season...

Dwight ended the season top scorer for Palace with 8, despite having very few games (9 starts, 16 sub appearances).

He is the real deal, and we still sold him too cheap last season. Good luck though Dwight, the Daggers are proud to have been an, all to short, part of your career.

Re: Its all over!

No 2 fan, can I ask why you are the most disillusioned you've been following us? Surely this past season has been better than the final 2 under JS? Not a dig, just a question. It wasn't me that said that but, I think I am in the same place so... League Two was a pretty poor league this year and we ...

Re: This is worrying

Football isn't about community run clubs anymore, it's about the billionaires and their obscene money. The fact is there is a growing number of Sky Sports subscribing armchair pundits to whom football is nothing more than a Sunday afternoon soap opera. These people who pay their tv subscriptions an...

Re: This is worrying

I don't see this working unless they adopt something like the system they use in the US for Major League Baseball where a "Premier League" club has a number of "Minor League" teams affiliated to it as part of its organisation and players can be sent to play in the minor league teams to gain experien...

Re: Its all over!

The next time a manager says that at the end of the season the league table doesn't lie, look at us sitting 9th in League Two 2013/14 and go hmmmm!

Re: Stadium

I believe the Pondfield Road Stand (all other names being temporary) is actually 1,240. The Main stand (Carling) is indeed 800 seats (or was when it was built, I think some extras have been "nailed on" here and there since along the front, but it won't be a lot more than that. The "Marie Celeste" (B...

Re: League 2 Groundsman of the year

I had exactly the same thought after that came out. The pitch at Victoria Road has been fabulous this season, and survived a lot of water on it on more than one occassion.

Re: One Game Left

It won't be white. Nightmare to keep clean ;) We should go for retro kits based on the founding clubs. Either an Ilford style blue and white hoops, or Walthamstow Avenue, light and dark blue hoops. For the next home kit, I am still waiting for the Dagenham FC "Middleboro" style hoop from 1977. http:...
