It's 2010 all over again...

Six losses in a row. Same as back then. Similar head-scratching stuff. Looking back at the side then, the names were quality. All teams go through this and get through it and having been there before the management have to draw on their reserves of experience in handling this situation - hence what some may refer to as a slump, I would characterize as a necessary evil.
More interested in any alterations in formation and as to if worth going to Tonbridge with the same criteria. As for tonight certainly worth an experimental try. It something which has to run it's course. Chances are we will suddenly snap back into old ways and may not have actually done anything major. I certainly would not question anybody's commitment to the cause - even on a bad day. During the 2010 run we lost 1-8 at Lowestoft. We will get through this, with discipline and organisation.
As a footnote, just adding my appreciation to those involved in helping secure the club's future with regards to the developments as SJP. People make football clubs and Hendon have the best.
Onto Kent.

It looked a more solid set-up for the most part this evening with Murphy and Da Costa offering width, but a bit more solidity.

The two goals conceded were pretty awful again, a free header from a cross after a corner was half cleared, and then giving Michael Murray, of all people, the freedom of our half to pick his spot from 25 yards.

Lots of huff and puff, we got the ball out wide well, and there were some decent balls into the box. The one time a player gambled, he scored - Omar deserves credit for that - however with strikers unwilling to gamble as they're not sure whether that ball is going to be whipped in, we didn't create much else. An effort over the top from Aaron on the turn, and Berkley made a very good tip over from a Murphy ranger.

Some positive individual showings for me, Vassell and Short in particular... Scrappy clean sheet would be most welcome on Saturday.

Keep the faith.
