My views were well documented post match to all and sundry. This is without doubt the best squad I've seen in my nigh-on decade watching the lads. Best ninety I've seen was at Eastbourne in the FA Cup. That team broke up with the loss of Greg and Elliott up-front. I think this crew have more depth.
What really, really impressed me - even more so than from Tonbridge - was the way we fought to regain possession. We closed down, hardly gave away a free-kick in doing so, we won challenges with precision and pre-empted everything they had. The work we did when not in possession led to everything we posed in an attacking sense. Enfield, on the back of a mass exodus, were not themselves, but last season would have probably still turned us over. Shout out to Keagan, Big Dave and Murphs, the physical effort was impressive on the back of the weekend.
We should be in for a really solid campaign. If so, I intend to enjoy it. I can still feel the anguish I felt on the journey back from Leatherhead last season. I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me. It's payback time.
Well done to Gary for his commitment, diligence and application. The players will be chomping at the bit to aspire to our obvious potential - long may it continue - Very, very impressive indications all round.
