Where we are
It's difficult to understand a performance like that. Just like the home tie, Leatherhead were pacey, had runners, tacklers and players that wanted it more, all over the pitch. How can we look so tired and clueless today after the last two games? Giving the ball away constantly, not challenging for headers all game, no point going for seconds or a quick pass wide because we want to be clever, turning into trouble and three defenders. It was bad. But whatever is left we will come and watch every game to the end.Because none of us can beleive what we're seeing and we will hope and support as far as we can through this awful situation. It's an embarrasing end also with certain individuals shaming our club with their juvenile and putrid, abusive spewing. Is it a release valve for a clogged-up brain? Or a need to let go like a neanderthal? I would prefer when I pay to watch a game not to listen to two drunken idiots having an open space to vent. I want to see our players and supporters show some class for the run-in. It does really hurt to be in this position where we are in our new ground and getting relegated. Could we try and get some identity/brand for next season? Green and White you know?

"two drunken idiots shaming the club blah blah blah"
The same people who are the only ones ever to try to get an atmosphere going at any game.
You'd rather stand in silence and politely applaud a capitulation like that?
You'll enjoy the rest of the season then. I'm out.
Re: Where we are
With regards to my personal road map - well today probably brings Tonbridge (Pennslyvania) into play. The pendulum has swung from positive to negative in 3 days and may well again. The frustration is obvious and we all individually act accordingly. I would not chastise any individual for their emotions in this environment, even if it could be perceived as over-stepping the mark.
There's really no point on examining the performance today - each game boils down to the points gained at the end of the day. Today we blew an ideal opportunity to make headway and gave our nearest rival the advantage, that's a cardinal sin. There are aspects of today which need to be reflected upon.
We all care about our future, but in reality we have in the last week seen the best and worst of what we have.
It really comes down to the next couple of games, and despite the setback today, we have a realistic prospect of staying up. We owe it to ourselves to remain steadfast maybe in hope rather than expectation that we can pull this off.
Today was a embarrassment - we have to aim to put it right Saturday - no excuses.
