"Now we're playing like the stars / I hope this game will last forever / Oh! Oh! Oh! Ohhh! / Ain't no team like / Dulwich Hamlet / Makes me happy / Makes me feel this way!" There was one point on tuesday a group of you started singing two consecutive chants I'd invented without me starting them off... I actually got a bit emotional. Forging football songs is a beautiful thing. It may be time to publish the Dulwich Hamlet Songbook B-Sides, editor.
we should create a song for him….something about taking the train...
Oh, Jordan Clarke!
Oh, Jordan Claarrrkkke!
On the train I fear that Jordan's always near.

And another take on last night, from Lewes's Chief Scout!

Has Gavin seen this?
Scutta, maybe the banner should be donated to the Carshalton fans, seeing as they might use it and we'll probably not play them again for a while!
Bring it to the Met game since it was an off duty cop that got me banned from Kingstonian!
I've noticed a lot of other cyclists amongst the Rabble. Any #criticalmass comrades in our ranks?

The next ride is on Friday...
I found a damaged but rideable Boris Bike behind the bins at Champion Hill last season. It's still in my garden. In fact, I reckon I was the first non-Turkish fan to sing the "loy loy loy" chant as I rode it out of the ground.

I'm not much of a cyclist but would like to give Critical Mass a go. Sadly working friday night.

Hey, Dean Yager!
Lewes are away, tonight, at Grays Athletic. That's a minimum 100 mile round trip and a full match less than 48 hours before the Dulwich descend on them. Ouch.

It's the last Friday of every month. Put it in your diary or head. A rabble section in the mass would be great. Probably other Dulwich fans in the ranks already....they just don't know it yet.

I used to be a Critical Mass regular but haven't been for a few years. I'm keen on a Hamlet contingent. Wont be able to make Friday as I'm going straight to Brighton after work but next month count me in.

Having a chat with mate at work....cant express his thanks enough..... the extra publicity that has followed as really helped out.....

Bit of a discussion on the Carshalton Athletic fans' board: http://carshaltonathleticfans.myfastforum.org/Police_at_protest_tonight_about394.html

Seems our 'lift the ban' chants upset one of the CAFC directors.

GOOD.
Don't want other Carshalton fans or the board to be too pissed off...just give the fans a fair chance to appeal before independent people would be good enough....each Club and their fans need to support each other at this level... and it looks like they need more fans as I think we may have nearly outnumbered them!!!

Looked like a great ground so I wish all the best to Carshalton Athletic and all their supporters and hope this situation gets resolved the correct way....on the pitch and off!

I would say it's excellent, as in 'all publicity is good publicity'...but not totally accurate. Haven't got time to repond as to why, right now. Might do later, if I can find the time, or be bothered.
Be interested to know more about this. One thing I do know is that, having written a piece about Red Star '93 for the online bit of WSC a few years ago, they edit stuff pretty intensely and the meaning gets lost.

I think you do need to piss the board off tbh.The independent appeals thing seems like a bit of an odd idea - there's no precedent for anything like that I've heard of. I think you just need to keep the people in power under pressure to stop being wankers really.

if the creator wants to send me some of those wonderful stickers, i'd be very happy :)
I know that one of the guys who holds the similar banner at games is Richard, who runs the Old Post Office bakery in Landor Road. I don't know if he is responsible for the stickers though.

You're right but id rather see them realising they have lost support and want to change this situation.... rather than have them pissed off with our fans or our club for showing solidarity...... that's sort of what I meant.

the independent thing isn't that odd.... the board seem to have a problem with this set of fans.....so may not be able to look at it objectively...whether there's a precedent or not its a sensible suggestion in how to resolve the issue like "adults" that has been presented by the group who have been banned....

Fair enough if they want to go down that route they should be supported. It does sound a bit pseudo-trial to me tbh. Either way I hope they fix it.

The contrast between the two clubs really struck me the other day. For all the financial woes there's such a positive feeling around Dulwich. Growing crowds, enthusiastic fans, great football. Contrast that with Carshalton where they've got angry banned fans protesting, no atmosphere from the home fans, and to be honest about the worst team I've ever seen. And it's hard to put your finger on exactly how that happened - it's not like Dulwich have been brilliantly run (see financial woes). I guess it's luck as much as anything, that one side appointed Gavin Rose mostly.

Lewes seem to be trying to exhaust themselves with a dingdonger away at Grays. Current 4-2 to the Essex side. Edit: saying that, it's apparently only their second league game in a month.

Gaz made the reclaim our game stickers and banner. I think he got 1000 stickers done so probably has some spares!
He did get them done as the world's cheapest printers in Eastern Europe, and as a result they struggle to stick to any surface. And don't let the rain get at them! :D

Been going through some old photos and found this one (from about April 2011??) - don't think I've seen the team written up on a whiteboard for some time - do we still have it? Or am I just massively unobservant?!

I have seen it out earlier this season. That team had some good players, anyone know where Omar Lawson ended up?

I am sure the last thing I heard about Omarr Lawson was that after a couple of unsuccessful trials he stopped playing to concentrate on his studies!!

Could be completely wrong as usual though!!
