I don't know what to make of tonight. How much to directly contribute to the travel, the competition, availability of personnel, the performance or even the desire. Irrespective of any or all of the above, based on the back of Saturday, hoping for some form, that ain't pretty. Even though stretched, looking at the starting XI, I expected more. Got the impression, maybe the all-important second goal probably made things awkward. You don't want to throw the towel in. Despite not being there, you can often envisage the type of game. Shame, I wanted to get reacquainted with Chesham. Have another potential crack at that lot.
I guess being objective, we will learn far more from Saturday at the Met, (if we can get there)! I remain upbeat. They've had lots of games determined by the odd goal. I think they've struggled to replace Nesta and Max Westmore, (scoring freely at Westfield). What a foil he was for Mazzone, (scored twice tonight). Is this a London/Southern League recruitment thing taking hold? Interesting to see how they play compared to past visits
even the climate. Gales, monsoons, baking heat and lightening have all taken hold - usually on the same day. interesting to see if their notorious corner routine remains. Never seen a side drop the delivery so close to the keeper. Interesting to see how our lad reacts if crowded. A lot of past assumptions may or may not be present. I think it's a fascinating game. Highly unpredictable. Time to see what we're made of and hopefully walk away with a few more solid conclusions.
