Re: Heads up!
Best thing about the afternoon, aside from the heartening performance, was the way in which we were welcomed by Sutton.
Last year at Boreham Wood, we couldn't have been made to feel less welcome and treated any colder, penned in behind the goal, stewards who had clearly been chipped with every health and safety policy going and just a generally lousy experience from start to finish.
The moment I got to Gander Green Lane the welcome was entirely different. From the guy outside the bar selling scratchcards, to the turnstile operators, the stewards inside the ground who were checking bags - a different world entirely. It would be easy for a club like Sutton, who let's face it have made enormous strides on and off the pitch since we last met, to have allowed themselves to get up their own arses. But they haven't at all. They still have that warm feeling around the place which makes Non League Football so much more appealing than League Football to me.
Good luck to them for the rest of the season.
As for the game, as Deadman says, the finishes from the home side were outstanding. Powerful, in the corner and Addai had no chance with any of them. I thought we competed well, caused them one or two moments of angst and created more than we did at Boreham Wood. I did wonder after the third goal whether they might go on and score a couple more in the final ten minutes, but heads didn't drop and we continued to try and play football, looking to create.
No disgrace in losing 3-0 against a side that good.
Bigger challenges await now. Looking forward to the run-in immensely.
