    Yes I can. There is quite a bit going on tomorrow so I can write that part of the day to include in the report if you want. Could you give us a re-tweet on Brixton Buzz Twitter please

    Just a couple of comments from our opponents - enjoy

    As I often do prior to playing against opposition, I ventured onto the Dulwich forum and was surprised to see some 14 pages of postings regarding our game on Saturday (or so I thought). What have they become? If that is the sort of fan base they have now attracted, I would rather play in front of 50 people at Bognor than that political claptrap.
    If you have an hour to spend please enjoy their ramblings especially regarding some of our fans. Needless to say after I had read about 7 pages I gave up us there was hardly any positive comments regarding the actual game, and to think they were a club I used to look up to and admire, and aren't they a fan ownership club.

    See what you mean Mo. Of course there's more than one Dulwich Forum but the one you're referring-to seems the most active these days. All seems very juvenile - a bit like reading a 'Young Ones' script - and surprisingly football-free. Just shows that the increased attendances at Hamlet in recent seasons are not an unmixed blessing. As you know I live about 2 miles from Champion Hill and go there occasionally when Rocks don't have a game. To be fair, the big, youthful crowds make for a great atmosphere but listen to some of the conversations and you wonder whether some of these urban trendies have ever seen a football match before or are just there to show off their facial topiary and sample the (excellent) craft beers. But my real beef with many 'new' Dulwiich supporters is not with their political views (which generally I share) so much as the fact that most of them are spoiled middle-class brats playing at being lefties for a bit before turning into their stockbroker-belt parents.

    Incidentally, I went to watch Wadham Lodge v Clapton in the Essex Senior League last night. (I lead a glamorous , jet-set existence.) Clapton took around 80 fans. I'm told they're getting gates of 700 -800 at home. A similar crowd to Hamlet but even younger and much scruffier; they'll probably move to Dulwich once they graduate and start working at HSBC or Goldman Sachs. They're all Merchant Bankers really.

    Couple of interesting points from that. Surprised to read Clapton "only" taking 80 fans to Wadham Lodge given there seems to be a lot of needle between the two clubs and its just down the road. And off course can't resist a little "dig" at Bognor Regis Logan's Run admission policy of no concessions for senior citizens!

    Ta, behind the goals, not sure which end, most probably the carwash end

    Bognor's a bogie for me. Seldom seen the Hamlet do them over. Best one I've seen was that 0-0 draw just after Xmas about five years ago. Crowd of 800 odd. Seemed huge at the time. At least Prior's elsewhere.

    A lot of people do a lot for the club, and I do very little other than support it doggedly.

    But in order to attend today's game, me and the dog have been forced to agree to a list of demands from my wife and daughter (see photo). Wife's amendments image.jpeg are written in the blood she extracted from me.

    So yes, the things I do for this bloody club.

    Feel free to come and talk about metal at the megacontainer, although, unsure why black metal isn't included on that list?

    That was dull, boring and tedious! It's all been said before, it was so quiet even the pigeons decided to chill out on the pitch. And one of them showed more initiative than the whole team, got my man of the match!

    Great attendance today
    With over 2,200 in attendance today
    proves the decision to go with a trade union day
    worked

    Lots of new faces - Hope a some will come back again despite the result

    well done to all those involved in making today a success (at least attendance and recognition wise)

    Note

    In the Conference only Tranmere got a bigger gate

    We were awful. Bereft of inspiration, shaky at the back and ineffective in the last third. :(

    With the huge support and resources we have
    don't understand why we are playing so poorly
    #seriously
    its disappointing
    especially as so many people (old and new) have such faith in the club

    we did have one stone wall penalty and we did hit the cross bar

    shame Bognor fans have to be such drunken prats or maybe "so called" fans (not all but far to many)

    Were proud to be a family club - maybe they dont want to be

    Then again we had over 2,200 in attendance
