I agree with your comments about Margate and Maidstone fans, Paul. It seemed to me that there was a lot of sour grapes doing the rounds in Kent during the spring.

I also agree that at times we have, in the past, lacked that killer instinct. However, I don't necessarily think that's through any physical shortcomings, more a mental one. Last season's success was largely built on a mentality that even if we go behind, we have the quality to beat anyone. And that's exactly what we did.

However, what I don't accept is that with that level of ruthlessness automatically comes a need to try and influence officials, blatantly dive (as Shulton has done on more than one occasion this season) and bring in those parts of the game that make the Premier League so unwatchable. If he, Shulton, spent as much effort concentrating on his game as he does gobbing off, he'd be a heck of an asset. He's started the season well - but what use is he suspended after collecting five bookings for dissent?

I hope Aaron has learned from his dismissal against Enfield, we now miss him against East Thurrock, Leiston and Harrow where, in the first two matches, his pace, power and ability to create something from nothing will be a big loss.

Players will always pick up cards and suspensions it's part and parcel of football (Olly's red card in the LSC Final), but I get really ticked off when a player is sat in the stands when they should be on the pitch.
