    Well... we can’t enter the day of a game without a thread! Especially as it’s our first home game in National South

    They lost to a stoppage time penalty at home to Woking on Saturday. I'm hoping for a minimum 4 points from the two home games against ETU and Concord over the next four days before the trip to Chelmsford next Monday.

    Son of Roy Thinks Gavin Rose is great

    I believe Sam Higgins was the top scorer in the NLS last season. He was also top scorer in the Ryman Premier the season they got promoted. But he didn't score in the play off final.

    I brlieve Sam Higgins is missing the start of the season including our game due to getting married abroad.

    Concord nearly beat Billericay last night so that game might be tricky. Tricky Dickie.

    He should have done that at the end of last season instead of signing a dual registration to play for Canvey Island in their play-offs. He certainly didn't play for them on Saturday, they had Tom Derry up front instead.

    Hope we get a decent crowd, performance & 3 points.

    Although to be honest I'd settle for the first and third options...

    Higgins' wedding abroad last weekend apparently, which is why he missed the season opener - as did their manager John Coventry who was at the wedding. I found that pretty remarkable tbh. I can understand giving a player a bit of leeway on such things, even one of their star players and especially at the start of the season, but I think I'd be a wee bit surprised if Gavin did that - esp at this level.

    Terrible goal to give away but a decent performance. Should have won the game comfortably. Need to be more clinical in front of goal but encouraging signs I thought.

    East Thurrock were pretty limited in what they had to offer.

    That was a great win. I could easily see us not getting any points from that - which would have been harsh given the performance - but the team fought hard to get the win. Tomlin had some spectacular misses though, and it was a bit worrying that we let in their first chance.

    Definite room for improvement, but every point is going to be important this season.

    That's a very encouraging performance and result. Well done Dulwich! Why was Nyren missing again tonight?

    You'd have to go a long way to find a game as entertaining as that. What a finish.

    Also, why is football web pages so messed up this season? They used to be so good. They're currently reporting that the game ended 1-1 and earlier today they had most teams in our league having played 3 games.

    Blown away with that performance, Gavin Rose has one way of getting his team to play and that is why I follow him.

    Edwards was fantastic in between the sticks, didn’t panick and had excellent distribution, especially throws out wide.

    Pappoe, Magnus and Kargbo snuffed our everything. Because of them ET rarely looked like threatening.

    Sanchez Ming was rapid, clinging to the line and bringing players into the game. Nathan Green looked a bit restricted as a Full Back but grew into the game and put in some good deliveries. Also Collosal in the air.

    Ferguson linked well with Vose and helped spray the ball around. Vose impressed, especially his range of passing.

    Gavin redeemed himself, great goal and he worked his socks of all game. Walters must have been a nightmare to play against and the balls coward were sublime. Dipo yet again the hero and Ash Carew made an impact when he came on.

    Man of the match...Cook. Defence couldn’t mark him. Looking forward to him and Clunis linking up.

    We should have scored a few. The ball DID go over the line. I have lost my voice. Bring on Concord!

    Really enjoyed that tonight. Thought Hamlet played well first half and should have probably been ahead Tomlin and Pappoe missing a couple of good chances.

    Felt a bit for Pappoe for their goal a mistake from him, but from what Ive read he hasn’t played much football in the past seasons due to injuries and looked like a result of a bit of rustiness. Thought he played reasonably well after that.

    Second half thought Hamlet were excellent created an unbelievable amount of chances and great to get the late goal.

    Thought there were quite a few standout performances, Ming who showed so much energy to get forward when trying to break them down 2nd half, Kargbo broke things up well in midfield and kept us on the front foot. Vose was excellent finds good angles for his passes, quick in mind and very composed.

    Thought Hamlet looked noticeably the fitter team in the closing stages, but could be that East Thurrock were holding on for most of the 2nd half.

    Looking forward to Saturday.

    Good attendance and great vocal support from the Rabble especially in the second half when we were still 0-1 down

    Very much against the run of play did we go 0-1 down, but thats football

    Second half some great moves only failed because of some very poor finishing (could have cost us)

    Totally outrageous that we were denied a goal that was obviously over the line (this could have cost us dearly)

    A point tonight would have seen us very much at the bottom of the league and ensured word got around that we were there for the taking

    But thanks to Dipo's very impressive and coolly taken goal we are in the realms of mid table mediocrity

    To be honest, that 94th minute goal not only sent fans home delirious and wanting more, it was almost worth the season ticket price alone

    Lots to love about non-league football tonight and defiantly justice was done

    Excellent performance. After the break we absolutely pummelled them with our quick passing and movement. Yeah we wasted a few chances (and were denied one by the ref) but if we play like that every week we have nothing to fear.

    I took a mate tonight for his first Dulwich game to Imperial Fields. At the start of the game he was like “yeah I’m pretty neutral and I just like to enjoy the game” and by the end of the game he was screaming “DIPO, DIPO DIPO, DIPO DIPO, DIPO AKINYEMI!”

    That’s a great game. Sexy football.

    Great game. Main impression for me was that this team could be very good on this league once they get used to each other. Approach play was fast and fluid. Finishing a bit ropey. But that will come I hope.

    What a night, really thought it was going to be 'one of those days' with the defensive nightmare in first half then the phantom goal in second.
    Great character to keep going and what a finish.

    On the subject of the ghost goal, the floodlights were casting a very definite shadow directly underneath the crossbar onto the goal line. The ball is clearly over this shadow in the photo.

    However, the markings on the pitch were so feint that you'd have barely been able to see the line had the shadow not been there, or the lino actually positioned correctly. As a result the officials have given ET the benefit of the doubt. My analysis is that the groundsman has cost us that goal and as a result I hope the lines are refreshed significantly before Saturday. Who's got the tenancy agreement?

    Then of course there is revolutionary love
    Love of comrades fighting for the people and love of people
    Not an abstract people but people one meets and works with
    When Che Guevara taught of love being
    At the center of revolutionary endeavor, he meant both

    For people like Che or George Jackson or Malcolm X
    Love was the prime mover of their struggle
    That love cost them their lives, love coupled with a man's pride
    Love coupled with a man's pride

    What a game. I'm still bouncing off the walls. Vose was absolutely supreme and Cook's intricate footwork and deft flicks were brilliant. Also thought Figueira did very well and he was constant menace in behind the ET backline. Hadn't been convinced by him in the games that I had seen him, but he really won me over last night. Ming, Kargbo, Preston all excellent, too. One chap that hasn't been mentioned so far is Jay May, who won every header he went up for last night and did the target man role with aplomb. I can't remember the last time I saw us move the ball so quickly and have so many shots. Lovely to see.

    Tomlin was fortunate he scored. Missed some sitters and still doesn't look fit to me. I can't see how he's picked over May or Dipo. Just to add some really controversial fat to the fire, too, I can't see how Clunis is going to get back in the side or what he'll bring. I think even the most vehement Clunisite can see that Cook creates more havoc and has more of an end product. Figueira can't be dropped on last night's performance and he can't lead the line as a #9. I'm not a massive fan of Clunis at all (blasphemy, I know), he doesn't convert enough of his chances for me. I hope we stick with the Cook-Vose-Figueira triumvirate that worked to such great effect last night.

    Magnificent game. Roll on Saturday.
