Another reason to hate the 46-game season

So far Hendon have played nine matches beyond 42-game seasons.

In 2002-03, our record was one win and three defeats (Eugene Ofori scored the only goal in a win over Kingstonian)
In 2003-04, our record was one draw and three defeats (Martin Randall netted in a 1–1 draw with St Albans City)
In 2013-14, our record is one defeat

That means it is P9, W1, D1, L7

We've had similar experiences at Dulwich:

2002/3, occupied a guaranteed promotion place with four games to go, but took just one more point and missed out.

2003/4, again occupied a guaranteed promotion place with four games to go but took just two more points and missed out, losing a cross-divisional play-off to Wealdstone on sudden death penalties.

2013/4, second with four games to go (i.e. pole position for home advantage in the play-offs) but took just four more points a missed out altogether.

I suppose someone must be bagging a few wins from these "extra" matches!

Given that I'm a natural born pessimist (or maybe realist), I did remark on Monday night (when we were 1-0 up!) that I wouldn't be surprised if we failed to get another point this season. Of the 11 home games I've been able to see, we have been pretty woeful (Wealdstone game excepted), scoring just 9 goals (5 by Leon).

Still my prediction after our first league game that we would finish 8th looks pretty near to the mark.

The above comments are observations not criticisms - Gary and the boys have worked wonders this season with extremely limited resources.

Bideford anybody?

I see the Harrow chief Peter Rogers has proclaimed his distain for the amount of games in our realm. He also appears concerned that Harrow and ourselves maybe shunted sideways into the Southern League due to the geographical shift towards the East.
I can't even begin to contemplate the permutations or the consequences, let alone the journey's.
He cites the demands on the club and staff under the present system and proposes an additional league above resulting in four divisions of 20 teams.
Personally. I am somewhat skeptical as highlighted in the article the whole make-up of the Ryamn League would be lost - even if only on a short-term basis - then again who knows?
No doubt the only certainty is more uncertainty.

I'd rather go to Bideford than East effing Thurrock!
