Proper game last night! I think Lee has covered it all. Hayes reminded me of a year 2 Billericay. Second 45. the way the probed down that ruddy flank. And yet, when going through the middle, equally devastating. Equal credit to Hendon, for the way they competed. Difficult to maintain such a style for the full ninety. A lot of weight on the shoulders of the wide lads at present against quality opposition.
Onto Saturday, IMHO, irrespective of our plight a batch of games from which points should be harvested. I have not seen anything yet to suggest Dorchester carry a significant threat. The best and most generous compliment I have given them, a half hearted shout-out to the lad Diaz, now at Salisbury. This next batch of games for me comprise of teams of whom battle and scrap in midfield. Shout-out to the lad Hamza last night. Uchechi or Maradona-esque. Fascinating lad. I think he could be a creative type. Great pass from Brewer to the front line last night, noting we need our midfield to get functioning. These sides on the horizon are the very type of whom annoy the snot out of me!
I always go in thinking we should score a hatful and of course, it's rarely that straight-forward.
But if you are going to compete at the top - you know the rest! We could actually, come the end of the month, be in a very strong position.
As for last night, supreme effort from all, on all sides. How good are Hayes at the back? Long way to go...

Whilst on Saturday last, while some of you guy's were no doubt going in search of the infamous 'Plymouth Hoe' - We have those where I live by the way,- I spent a couple of hours comparing opening day squads on a like-for-like basis.
I've waited until now due to the fact that Farnborough and Harrow are on the horizon - Wow, I was aghast at the amount of changes undertaken in teams personnel. For the record, FB and HB above were amongst the most active. Practically brand new line-ups. Notoriety shared with HW and Walton Cas.
Not surprisingly, Chesham and Truro appeared the least active and noticeably, Taunton appeared to retain most in terms of least disruption to the defensive collaboration. The Met, not surprisingly, were quite inactive.
A batch of sides, including those play-off contenders seemed to fall next in line, WSM, Poole and Salisbury come next.
I think in essence, the league table may already have a familiar feel.
I noted Lee's comments regarding Hayes and 100 goals. I think historically, the Southern League has four or five at the top and the rest traditionally lag, often by large points margins.
It's early days, but these are already important games.
