Full disclosure. I do think Wingate have struggled in recent times. Hendon have undergone a transformation. Tonight was a glowing endorsement. I do like my patterns and trends. Last 6 encounters v W&F at SJP we have failed to register first half. Games have followed a similar trajectory. Coming from behind has been proved to be tough. We've turned the tables - and seemingly gotten stronger.
My thoughts going in - the dominance of Spencer McCall against us and how a potential role reversal with the inclusion of Matt Ball may have been a choice. Quandries/dynamic with the lad upfront. His service. The crosses from the new lad or pace out wide. There's so much to take on board. Options when the Subs are made, changing the complexion. What a job this lad has done. We can get better, more cohesion.
I do think the inclusion of the LSC in the pre-season may have been beneficial. A bit of added umph. I would imagine that is one satisfied manager - he probably won't admit it - we're clearly on the up.
A place in the final, well deserved. It would be really nice to go an complete the job. Even nicer, for this particular fan, if I could get where-ever it is to ruddy see it. It's consolidating our campaign before it's began.
Great set of lads. Thanks for the updates throughout the night. Well played to Lee and lads.
