The skipper...

First up, I wasn't at the game this afternoon but was utterly delighted to see three points heading back North with us. Well done to everyone involved. (Yes, feel free to bombard me with emails about being a part-time fan or whatever, we can discuss that elsewhere)

However, and I hate to go negative here, I was enormously disappointed to see Kev sent off again. He is one of the most approachable guys in the squad, and has been since he's been at the club. HOWEVER, the captain has to set an example. This is his second red card of the season and will now, presumably, miss four matches. Given the scrap we are in for a play-off spot we are currently in, we can ill-afford a player of Kev's experience and quality to be missing for so long.

I don't know the circumstances with regards to the red card today except the opinions I've variously read this evening. I've not seen anything suggesting that Kev was harshly dismissed. In addition, there have been reports of behaviour off the pitch from Kev, that have not been widely publicised, that is not in keeping with that of a Hendon footballer, let alone captain in my eyes. Equally, I find it slightly embarrassing having to try and defend the conduct of someone who is seen to be letting the club down. After the nadir of the friendly at Chesham a few years ago, I thought things had changed... Perhaps I was wrong.

Fines are all well and good, but if we drop points in the next month that might cost us a place in the play-offs then I for one, will be extremely unhappy.
