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!!
Yeah I seem to remember him having trials at various league clubs - can't find anything on him lately though.

It was only a couple of years ago he was on trial at Cardiff. Shame, was a decent player.

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.
Both clubs are an example of how one individual with too much power and control can ruin an entire club that has existed for 100 years or more and take it to the brink of going under.

We've had bad seasons at the Hamlet on the field (bottom of the Premier Division by a long distance in 1989/90, and again inn 2000/1) but it's never been accompanied by the off-field rancour like Carshalton Athletic currently have.

The last time we met them in the League was in 2002/3 in Division 1 South. Carshalton were promoted as Champions while Hamlet finished 4th (top two straight up with no play offs in those days) although we'd actually been above them on goal difference with four games to play. Their average attendance of 345 was the highest in the division, while ours was 252.

Eventually the bloke doing all the damage will probably get bored and lose interest, then the right sort of people will be in charge again, but it won't be easy to lure back all those missing fans. If you take away the Hamlet contingent there can barely have been 100 home fans present on Tuesday night if that, and the team was woeful.

I have seen it out earlier this season. That team had some good players, anyone know where Omar Lawson ended up?
I'm fairly sure he was at Peckham Town last season. (The club that plays in the Kent County League at the Southwark Sports ground on Dulwich Common, which is about four divisions below the Hamlet.) No idea if he's still there now

Oh yeah PP your memory might be spot on again, didn't he play in the Friendly against us????

I had a dream last night that I gave a lecture to an opposition keeper on quantum mechanics to try and put him off. I don't know a thing about physics so I don't know how I managed to do it but in the dream, he was quite distracted and even took a genuine interest in what I was saying. Unfortunately, this didn't cause us to score a goal but maybe it's a sign that Tom should be encouraged to espouse complex conceptual ideas to the goalie. I can just imagine him explaining the Schroedinger Equation to a bewildered beardless, small badge-wielding keeper.

Taken from the Lewes forum today...

Jack and Joe Fingerneissl (our superb groundsmen) will be working through the afternoon and evening to clear all or at least most of the standing water on the pitch. Luckily the forecast for the best part of tonight and tomorrow is dry so if the majority can we removed then we should give ourselves a very good chance of getting the game on with a number of hours of natural drying time.

We'll assess it again tonight and first thing tomorrow morning to see where we stand. We're obviously hoping we don't need a pitch inspection but if we do it'll be around 10am.

Keep an eye on @lewes_cfc for further updates!

And me, I'm still pissed off I couldn't go to Carshalton and even more so now I've seen the pictures. This ones been planned for ages, bad enough the train's aren't running properly so it's driving down and getting some beer for the evening in the Harvey's brewery shop.

Looking at the BBC weather it's wet until 8 o'clock and then dry pretty much onwards. If the match does go ahead I'd be happy to buy the groundsmen a pint each.

Bribery is the way forward, I'll buy them a pint each too!

Non refundable hotel in Brighton booked so we're heading down for a pub crawl regardless... would be nice if there was some football to go to as well.

Goal charts? Legit
Either work hard or you might as well quit
That's word, because you know
You can't touch him, you can't touch him.

Break it down (crazy bridge!)
Stop, Erhun time!

Go with the funk, it is said
If you can't groove to him
Then you probably are dead.

So wave your hands in the air
Bust a few moves
Run your fingers through your hair.

He hits it, for a winner
Dance to this and you're gonna get thinner
Move, slide your rump
Just for a minute let's all do the bump, bump, bump.

Yeah
(You can't touch him)
Look, man
(You can't touch him)

You better get hype, boy
Because you know you can't
(You can't touch him)
Ring the bell, school's back in.

Break it down! (crazy bridge!)
Stop, Erhun time!

You can't touch him!
You can't touch him!
You can't touch him!

Break it down! (crazy bridge!)
Stop, Erhun time!

Every time you see him
Erhun's just so hype
He’s dope on the pitch and I'm magic on the mic

Now why would he ever stop doing this?
With others making' records that just don't stick
He’s scored around the world, from Turkey to Herne Bay
It's "Erhun, go Erhun, MC Erhun, yo, Erhun"
And the rest can go and play.

You can't touch him!
You can't touch him!
You can't touch him!

Yeah, you can't touch him
I told you, you can't touch him
Too hype, can't touch him
Get way outta here, you can't touch him.
