Really appreciate the feedback. I have a tad sympathy with our 'Enfield Syndrome'. Tactically over the years it's been a nightmare. Pack the midfield and/or restrict width. They have us licked, yet their left-back traditionally manages to provide an aerial bombardment from the half-way line. All this kind of stuff you can envisage the game without actually being there.
As for last night, Dave sent off, out of character is something we've heard far too often. It's indicative of a team with far-reaching unresolved issues and I am sorry to say until we resolve our personnel issues in the heart of midfield the games are seemingly going to follow similar inevitable patterns.
Merstham did my head in. They are rank mediocrity and their midfield created more in sporadic moves whilst are collective huff and puff created nothing in trying to blow their house down.
Home truth time, we are not good enough in the middle and until we resolve our issues we remain vulnerable - but I do have a tad sympathy with our Enfield Syndrome - we seem utterly incapable of playing there and our performances there seem frankly a mess. We lack cohesion every time we go there. And frankly how good are they?
We are crying out for ball retention and play-makers in the middle of the park. It's lack of dynamic has clearly been incorporated into the psyche of the forwards.
It's damn frustrating.
