Don't think Yussuf is a fit for us from what I've seen. Oozes pace but is lost for far too long in a game!
Yussuf on the score sheet for The Angels today.
It appears Dipo Akinyemi has joined Cheshunt (on loan?) after all. He played for them today in a 1-1 draw at home to Corinthian Casuals.
Does Reise have a chant yet?
If not can I suggest, to the tune of Radio Gaga:
All we need is Reise Allassani, Reise Allasaani.
That’s probably all my vocal ‘talents’ can handle but if it’s needs more lines then instead of
Radio, what's new?
Someone still loves you
You could have
He’s scored again, what new?
Dulwich still loves you.
Yep on loan and I would assume his loan deal started on Sunday as we have not released him to play in cup competition.
His first name is Ashley, is Ashley, is Ashley.
His second name is Maynard, is Maynard, Is Maynard.
His third name is Brewer, is Brewer, is Brewer.
He’s Ashley Maynard-Brewer.
New defender inbound
He was a substitute for the Palace pre-season match but wasn't used.
Some interesting quotes from Gav in the South London Press today:
Dulwich Hamlet boss provides update on former Crystal Palace man's injury - as boosts he can recover and play again
Gavin Rose says Dulwich Hamlet will do everything they can to help Reise Allassani as he recovers from the second cruciate knee ligament injury of his career. The former Crystal Palace attacker was back on loan with the National South club when he suffered the injury. Allassani, 23, also did the same knee damage when he came out of contract with the Eagles but rebuilt his career at the Hamlet, his goalscoring form leading to a two-year deal from Coventry City.
Dulwich manager Rose said: “We’ve had some positive news in that they think due to Reise’s athleticism – he has got quite a lot of bend in the knee – they are more optimistic he will be able to make a full recovery to play again than they were initially. I feel really sorry for the boy, he doesn’t seem to get the rub of the green. It was a very innocuous incident – there was no contact, just a quick turn and he went over in a heap.”
Rose doesn’t believe that Allassani got a “fair crack” at nailing down a first-team spot at the Sky Blues. The former England U17 international is due to be a free agent in June.
“I’d like to think Coventry will extend his contract because he is in a bad position,” said Rose. “But he knows that I rate him highly and the club love him as well. We’d back him to get back and up to speed. We’d give him that platform to kickstart his career but I’d also say Coventry can give him comfort to get his career going again."
“We are waiting to find out from Coventry if they still expect us to pay the money for his loan, that could leave us in the position that we’re not able to bring anyone else in. We have had one or two players who haven’t quite hit the standard that the club need and we’re in the process of agreeing their terminations. They’ve had opportunities since pre-season, some have done better than others.”
I'd have no qualms about giving Reise another go when he's recovered providing he's on some sort of pay-as-you-play contract. Anything beyond that initially has to be seen as a gamble due to his unfortunate injury history.
Regarding the last bit, I would imagine Ryan Case falls into this bracket along with Dipo or Vose?
I'd say it could be one or two of half a dozen. I'm not going to speculate personally but almost everyone seems to have been dropped at some point as we've frequently made 3 or 4 changes from one game to the next, especially during the recent lean run of league results.
Two cruciate injuries is not good. I'd say it's unlikely he'll ever play near the top level again. Clubs simply won't take the risk.
Interesting piece in the SLP today.
- Ambrosine released
- Gavin looking to get rid of a few others permanently (one player not willing to terminate - fair enough)
- Potentially a few players going out on loan to create room for a few recruits
Dulwich Hamlet need to pass Havant & Waterlooville test to reach FA Cup first round - as boss Rose reveals one player refusing to tear up contract
“It was fantastic,” said Rose. “Not just in terms of numbers but it was a vociferous crowd."
A vociferous, key jangling, brolly waving bunch.
Harsh on Ambroisine, IMO. None of his performances stick out in my memory as particularly bad.
“This season we have had a lower attendance. That doesn’t mean to say we are complaining, because it is still good, but it has been 1,600 or 1,700. It was great to have that extra 1,000 in there. You definitely felt it as a player and manager. You could feel the difference and both teams rose to the occasion."
That's quite misleading. Attendances haven't been lower compared to the same point in previous seasons. In five home Saturday League games up to Non-League Day in 17/18, we totaled 7,219 (average 1,444).

In four home Saturday and one home Bank Holiday Monday League games up to Non-League Day in 19/20, we have totaled 9,985 (average 1,997).

We're down versus the end of last season when approaching 3,000 was common, but attendances always grow through the season, so that's not a fair comparison.
I thought he was a bit like Cheick Tourè, a reliable squad player but probably not quite good or dominant enough to be a regular starter for a club looking to do more than just consolidate at this level. We still look a bit thin at centre back although Gavin seems to have settled on Christian Smith for that role now. It looks like Ryan Case may be the player whose position is at a stalemate, unless this situation has only arisen during the last week or so. I'm sure there was a comment a couple of weeks ago that he'd declared himself fit to play after a knock but been overruled .
Indeed. We've had, in the league, for at least 60 years:
Our highest August, September and October attendances.
Our highest midweek attendance (twice).
Our highest attendance on Non-League day - despite the weather.
Plus the highest FA Cup attendances at each stage of the competition in which we have participated this season.
My money's on Ryan Case being the player not wanting to terminate his contract
He was a bit of a strange signing in the first place. A defensive utility player aged 28 who lives 50 miles away. Unless I'm confusing him with someone else I think he played at centre back for Oxford City against us last March and had a strong match, but that was arguably our worst performance of the season. I think he was also our first confirmed new signing in the summer which suggests Gavin actively sought his signature, he wasn't just "ballast" recruited during pre-season like Danny Pappoe last year.
I thought he came from Bath City but was at Oxford on loan last year. He apparently came back to pre season unfit from what I heard a few months ago
That may well be correct. All I know is he played for both Bath and Oxford last season, and having only seen the Spurs game for myself in pre-season I just remember that no one seemed very impressed with his performances. He was also at Wealdstone a while back and their supporters don't seem to rate him, whereas their verdict on the other ex-Stones players we've signed seems to be Smith - very good, and Monakana - decent but a bit up and down, i.e. typical winger. (Personally I think Monakana is our best out and out winger since Ellis Green with his ability to beat his man on either side from either flank and deliver a telling ball.)
Case only got a decent league run out against Wealdstone and acquitted himself very well in a excellent team performance......
We seem to be gathering a rather large squad so I thought I'd try to update this list.
Squad at start of season:
Arrivals since start of season:
*Reise Allassani (on loan from Coventry City)
Ben Dempsey (on loan from Charlton Athletic)
Jarvis Edobor (Chelmsford City)
Marvin McCoy (Aldershot Town)
Amos Nasha (Dartford)
Nathan Smith (Dagenham)
Departures since the start of this season:
Ashley Maynard-Brewer (loan from Charlton Athletic expired)
Amos Nasha (Salisbury City)
No Jamie Splatt on this list, but he and Gavin both mentioned last night he will be going out on loan to Merstham, will wait for confirmation
I thought there must be one or two more. I missed Marvin McCoy too.
I'll edit accordingly.
What about Maliq Morris?
