    Thought Jamie Mascoll was great today. Always on the front foot and aggressive in his decision making, and that's without even mentioning his goal which was superb.

    Comfortably man of the match for me. He must be in with a real chance at Charlton.

    Thoughts on Nathan Green playing on the right of a front 3?

    I thought it pretty much negated all of his strengths and was slightly puzzled that he and Wanadio didn't at least have a spell swapping sides

    An article about Dartford's no. 8, Lee Noble:
    Noble's Darts journey an inspiration

    A tough guy apparently. A tough guy who spent most of the first half rolling around on the floor trying to get Hamlet players in trouble. A tough guy who Aryan flicked to the floor with one hand while simultaneously finding his man with a pass as Dartford imploded in the last 10 minutes.
    Well 'ard.

    He was exactly the same in the match at their place. Niggly little fouls and making a meal of it whenever he's on the receiving end. He's actually a decent enough player not to need to do all that. Appropriately the article is illustrated with a picture of him fouling an opponent.

    Yep, definitely decent but clearly a twat. I left out his spiteful looking challenge on Mascoll late on too.

    I was really apprehensive when I saw the way we lined up at the start. Three at the back and with Green and Wanadio as wide forwards on their "wrong" sides in support of a single striker, plus several changes in personnel from last week's starting XI. I always think a straightforward 4-4-2 is the safest bet when wins have been hard to come by and you're looking for stability, and that's the policy that helped stop the rot and get a few points on the board in recent weeks. Thankfully Hamlet made a solid start against an ordinary Dartford team and rarely looked like losing the initiative after taking the lead just before the half hour. Fantastic goal with Clunis sending over a long swinging cross from the right hand touchline that dropped nicely for Mascoll, gliding into the box on the left, to volley into the far bottom corner from an angle. There weren't really a lot of clear chances at either end, although I always felt we were generally on top. The second goal came just before stoppage time commenced as the keeper spilled a pot shot from Onovwigun and Sheriff pounced to knock in the rebound. In the last two home wins against Eastbourne and Welling we've gone 2-0 up at a similar stage only to swiftly let one in at the other end and leave ourselves hanging on for the final whistle, but this time we saw out the remaining seven minutes withut any real alarm.

    Having missed last week's match at Torquay I was impressed by the contributions of the three latest signings, as well as Essuman who was making only his second league start. Tajbakhsh looks comfortable in the Kargbo role, Mascoll was excellent at left wing back even apart from his goal, while Wanadio looks a more mature all round player than when we first had him following three years playing in this division or the one above. My only real grumble is that I really don't like this thing of playing a left footed winger on the right and vice versa. For me Green looked totally ineffective compared to when he plays on the left, and he's been getting goals recently from playing on the left. Wanadio looked more of a threat to me after Green had gone off, when he moved to the right and was able to combine with Clunis. also a word for Edward, returning in goal, who didn't have his busiest game yet made one vital save after a forward had got free inside the box and was very safe dealing with set pieces, which looked like the only way Dartford would trouble us for the most part.

    And we had that ref who looks like Ed Balls again.

    Team (3-4-2-1): Edwards - Essuman, Taylor(c), Chambers - Clunis, Tajbakhsh, Ferguson, Mascoll - Green, Wanadio - Akinyemi. Subs: Vose (for Green), Sheriff (for Akinyemi), Onovwigun (for Wanadio), Cook, Thompson (not used).

    And yet they still didn’t find time time to describe that but where their defender butted their goalkeeper. :hmm:

    Can only assume it wasn’t newsworthy - must happen every game.

    I like the way the reporter complains that Gavin Rose only answered questions from DHFCtv, despite quoting him extensively and in considerable detail about numerous aspects of the game.

    At least he is doing better with Gavin than with my man Steve McKimm.

    He didn’t seem to mind when he held his dictaphone next to Gavin during our post-match interview :p

    Not like you to work a McKimm angle.

    The swine are having a go at Winnie now!

    "Not a good day out for us and like others I found the mix of their supporters strange and most more interested in the real ales and alcohol on sale round the ground than the football and I seemed to keep stumbling over this man with his whippet in the bar and around the ground wherever I walked and I had to try hard not to trip over the lead."

    She likes the bar. What am I to do!

    Just been reading their forum, honestly it's only 15 miles away you'd think we all come from a different planet than them.

    Dulwich Mishi Old Skool Terrace Dinosaur-embracing the new-veau!

    Perhaps if some other clubs at our levels thought outside the box & tried to reach out and attract people from all different walks of their community they might start to increase their crowds like we have. So we don’t tick all of the ‘traditional’ boxes. So what? If an Old Skool dinosaur like me can embrace change then surely anyone can! When we were in the same Isthmian One South division as Dartford when they first moved back home I could only dream of pulling in the numbers they got through the turnstiles, now we are getting gates that are our biggest in my lifetime. I couldn’t care less what our actual demographic is on the terraces...

    Anyone having a go at Winnie had better watch out. She can do no wrong as far as I’m concerned!

    F603B5FF-8500-41FB-914D-32851D80CA68.png Just thinking where that result leaves us. We’re essentially 3 wins ahead of relegation with 9 games to go. Meaning if we win 3 of our 9 remaining games, ET or Hungerford would have to win 6 of theirs to catch us. They have each won 7 all season.

    Saturday should have all but assured us of safety, ET and WSMs results really took the sheen off. We have Hungerford and Truro to play so a couple of six pointers there... but I think it’ll be mid-April at least before we get clear unless we go on a three game streak (home form very encouraging).

    I note that last Friday the FWP predicted table was predicting HF and ET to get almost nothing from 10 remaining games last week. So clearly plenty of room for upsets.

    That was 12 seasons ago, the only previous season both clubs were in the same division.

    Average attendance that season:
    Dulwich 326 Dartford 1,141

    Average attendance this season:
    Dulwich 1,647 Dartford 1,144

    So while our attendance has risen by over 500% theirs has risen by just under 0.003%.

    Looks like it was all just a big misunderstanding

    "I spoke to Bailey first to get some feedback and he said the photos don't represent what actually happened. It was just two people passionately arguing about something and probably both frustrated because we were losing as well."


    Passions run high as team-mates clash

    You can have a go at someone without squashing his nose with your forehead. Even a yellow card for their captain would have been his 10th of the season and triggered a two match ban, and a straight red for violent conduct would have been 3 matches.

    (The annoying number 8 will be suspended for the next 2 matches after his yellow card for that shitty studs-up challenge on Mascoll just before the end. Ha!)

    Watching the video on that he was lucky not to get a straight red.

    I've certainly seen people dismissed for less this season. I couldn't see it clearly at the time as I was on the opposite side of the pitch, but I noticed their bench were instantly on their feet flapping their arms about and shouting befroe the referee even had a chance to make any sort of decision. They were obviously worried it was gong to be a red. It wasn't a legbreaker, it was just an inexcusably spiteful foul. He was never going to win the ball so he just hung his foot out with his studs showing and caught the man below the knee. A coward's challenge.
