  1. He is the best man for the anchor role in our midfield. Jim O'Brien and Regan Booty can play that role if they wanted to, but they are more suited to the forward thinking passing role and hurtling forward to support the forwards. Doyle can bring the ball out from the back when the centre backs split. He's not just that guy who spreads the butter connecting defence and attack, but he makes them crucial interceptions when the opposition start going forward in numbers, as Ebbsfleet were on Saturday in the 2nd half. He can dictate the tempo of the play, something that's important in home games, plus he can take the pressure of the centre backs playing out from the back
  2. Bolton Wanderers 1-0 Milton Keynes Gillingham 1-1 Lincoln City Exeter City 1-0 Cheltenham Town Macclesfield Town 0-2 Mansfield Town Leyton Orient 1-1 Scunthorpe United Bromley 1-1 Harrogate Town (Joker) Dagenham & Redbridge 0-0 Aldershot Town Woking 2-1 Halifax Town
  3. I think his move to Grimsby was to help the wage bill to help bring in players in January Not sure what game it was but I know Swindon was definitely one we dominated 1st half and were poor 2nd half. He wasn't fit last season (neither was anyone) due to a woeful pre season (cheers Kevin). He's that type of striker that loves to be in and around the penalty area and when used correctly, he can be of huge importance. That's why he's got such a good goal record, the 18 yard box is his oyster and his finishing is good
  4. We seem to be almost there in terms of the squad gelling and we do get behind the team quite a lot. There are good signs being shown game by game Especially the last few. The will to win and the ability to change up our tactics. Another good sign is the strong team togetherness to bounce back from defeat and also keep calm and remain focused when we are behind in games. These are vital essentials that a team, that wants to be up at the top of the table, needs.
  5. We have one of the larger squads in the league I believe. Plenty of competition for places which is important as it keeps everyone on their toes and makes sure that no players are slacking Also vital we have squad depth for these stages in the season when the fixtures build up and injuries become more frequent Not just that but we have strength in depth too. For example in midfield we have Michael Doyle (anchor man), Jim O'Brien and Regan Booty (Forward thinking passers) and Mitch Rose (the presence and the ball winner). We also have Tom Crawford who is energetic and likes to roam forward too. Up front as well is another area. Kyle Wootton (the target man), Wes Thomas and Nathan Tyson (pace and pressing), Kristian Dennis (poacher). The quality is unlike many in this league (no disrespect but not many teams have our strength in depth). Some in our squad shouldn't be playing at this level but Notts and Ardley have the pulling power at this level to attract. GK - Slocombe, Fitzsimons, Kean (if you can count him) RB - Brindley, Kelly-Evans, Tootle CB - Turner, Rawlinson, Lacey, Bird LB - McCrory, Bakayogo CM - Doyle, O'Brien, Booty, Rose, Crawford W - Boldewijn, Shields, Osborne ST - Wootton, Dennis, Thomas, Tyson Out on loan: Dunn, Howes, Campbell, Culverwell
  6. Welcome to PON @Bromley1972
  7. Slocombe 7 - Made crucial saves in the second half when Fleet piled on the pressure. His usual commanding self Brindley 6 - Some decent runs forward. Solid defensively. Quiet afternoon to be fair Rawlinson 7 - Was involved in the carnage in the 93rd minute. Got the flick on (him or the Ebbsfleet player did) for the 3rd. Solid as ever Turner 9 - Resisted the Ebbsfleet pressure early in the first half. Won almost everything. That goal. What a king McCrory 6 - Struggled with Myles Weston at first but once he settled down he was fine. Had a busy afternoon Boldewijn 7 - Excellent going forward and did well defensively too. Always believe in Enzio Rose 6 - Much better than he was against Hartlepool. His type of game. A bit better with his passing and was always involved in trying to win it back Doyle 7 - Helped connect defence and attack. Made some crucial interceptions and tackles winning the ball back Booty 8 - The guy is pure class. Wand of a left foot, forward passing machine. Wootton 8 - Sign the guy up. So consistent with his performances. Hold up play exceptional. Finishing very good too Thomas 8 - Ebbsfleet couldn't cope with him. The turn and run for the second goal was brilliant. Chased down lost causes Subs Tyson 6 - Lively when he came on. Involved in the carnage at the end
  8. Previous league experience. Was unlucky at Gills with injuries. Sounds like Gills fans liked him. Understandable to add a centre-back to the ranks as we need cover there heading into the part of the season, where the fixtures are stacking up again cos of the cup competitions and and where the pitches become bobbly meaning injuries can become more frequent.
  9. Very good job with this. Massive thank you for the opportunity to be able to work with Football Daily. Happy with how my part went. Great to hear from Les Bradd, Neal Ardley and Nick Richardson as well
  10. Good chance to get through. Ebbsfleet been in good form though of late. Making the trip on the coach. No doubt it'll feel like it's -38 or something in the away end
  11. I've literally been woeful for the last few weeks and I'm still 4th somehow
  12. Slocombe 6 - Couldn't do owt with the two goals. Deflection and a good finish. Steady second half Brindley 5 - Too casual at times. Played the easy ball on occasions Rawlinson 7 - Was good second half. His diagonal balls to Wootton and Thomas caused carnage amongst the Pools back line Turner 6 - Got sent to the shops for the 2nd goal. Did the dirty work second half and needed to, to keep it level McCrory 7 - Always offered that option going forward and played a class ball for Thomas to get us back in the game Shields 5 - Did ok. Some energetic bursts but sometimes lacked the run in behind. Subbed Rose 4 - Couldn't pass a parcel. Takes too long to decide what to do Doyle 5 - Very poor first half. Wayward passes a plenty. Improved a bit in the 2nd Boldewijn 6 - Always grafted to get the ball back. Nearly always involved in the action Wootton 7 - A presence and when we went direct second half, Hartlepool couldn't cope with him Thomas 7 - Beat the keeper to the ball for the first and a proper poacher's finish for the second. Game saviour. A lot better in the second half when we were more forward thinking. Caused problems Subs Booty 7 - Subbed on, gets an assist and makes us a lot better going forward. Our most creative midfielder Dennis N/A - Came on too late to make any impact
  13. October 25th-November 1st Dover Athletic: Ruel Sotiriou - Leyton Orient (ST) - Loan Halifax Town: Jack Redshaw - Salford City (ST) - Free Solihull Moors: Gael Bigirimana - Hibernian (CDM) - Free Torquay United: Saikou Janneh - Bristol City (ST) - Loan
