Discussion in 'Dulwich Hamlet FC' started by darryl, Nov 13, 2017.
Or even moved from Tuesday 28th November.
I might actually be up for that. Winchester City are at home that day, but I think a show of solidarity may be called for and you lot may well need my readies more right now. Should be an event. You don't need me to tell you this is a great opportunity to build a campaign and fill the coffers. Saturday games are always going to be easier than Tuesday nights for a "Save DHFC Day".
can we confirm this is 100% going ahead - so posters can be done, social media
we need 2,000 plus if Saturday ???
Facebook event page below for next saturday.
What is the capacity at Champion hill? I am not going to tell you hpw to run this, but that home game is the best chance you have to build a campaign and get people in,
then let's fill it..
and your suggestions would be very much welcome
I am gutted I did not go the whole hog and say 3,000 here :-(
Bostik Fans Forum: To be or not to be- the future is uncertain for Hamlet - The Bostik Football League
I cant run this for you. Im just a non league fan who is horrified at what is happening at DHFC and wants to back you lot and see DHFC survive. Best of luck. Mx xxx!
Sorry, had to work late and got thoroughly pissed on the way home. I love you all, but I am a "little bit pissed" so please ignore me and I apologise for talking boolocks..

Not just editor!
The game wasn't exactly a thriller but it's another three points in front of a magnificent crowd of 1,832.
Boy it was blooming cold.
Job done against opponents who would clearly have settled for a point right from the start. 9 points clear at the top, and Bi££ericay won again in the Trophy, so that's another opportunity to pull away from them when we're at Tonbridge while they play the next round. 9 points in the bag they don't yet have.
I overhead a few people saying they were playing for a draw, they certainly defended in numbers.
I thought might have sneaked a goal in the first half and the way the ref was handing out yellow cards at the start of the game I thought someone was bound to be sent off.
The second half was better for Dulwich and could have scored a couple but their defence and more importantly their goalie caught most of the balls into box without much bother.
Good see we're scoring goals from corners, I'm surprised they don't score more with the height and strength in the team at the moment.

Thought we did well to hold our nerve on what could have been a frustrating day against a dogged opposition. When it was still 0-0 I thought it was going to be like the Hendon game all over again!
Lowestoft were pretty dirty - they had a player booked after five minutes for a horrible tackle, and there was one in the second half that went unpunished by the referee, but Weathers clattered the offender straight after and got himself booked.
Impressive to win without Reise at his best either. We all worry about cutting edge without Tomlin or Clunis - though I thought Ming was class today - so we've got to keep grinding it out.
Don't think Lowestoft Town actually had a shot on goal
They came with a plan - a draw and nearly succeeded
Very hard fought game, thought referee allowed the opposition to get away with some hard challenges
certainly a couple of hand balls missed - one that should have been a penalty
Respect to their fans who made the long trip on a very very cold day
Rabble took time to warm up - and huge raw of relief when that goal went in
Felt like more than 2,000 (lots of new faces - so must be a lot of churning) and must say expected over 2,000
Crowd seemed very late to arrive (again maybe the cold)
need to keep building on and off the field
Merthyr Town fans appreciative of the support/solidarity on social media
glorious sunset - great result
still top of the League
Lowestoft were missing their leading scorer (Jake Reed, 11 goals), who has played in every one of their league wins this season - so would suggest a combination of that and visiting the league leaders led to their approach of defending deep, crowding the middle and trying to get a reaction from some robust challenges. To keep going in the face of that, albeit with a couple of flare ups, was impressive. We continued to play, and showed resolve that we've sometimes lacked in the past. Then once the goal went in they had to open up, and in the last 15 minutes we started to find space behind them, Faal in particular. Would have been good to grab another, but they missed their one obligatory chance, so all in all an excellent three points.
Thought Taylor was the pick of the back three, strong in defence and brought the ball out well, Carew and Onovwigun both played to their respective strengths, and Ming outshone Green on the flanks, which is no mean feat. The front three of Ferguson / Allasani / Faal struggled until the goal went in, but Lowestoft played very narrow - the space that gave us on the flanks and resultant crosses would have probably benefitted someone a bit more suited to attacking the six yard box, a fit and firing Dumaka for instance.
Reise has scored all but one of his goals away from home. Granted, we have played more games away recently, but I think counter attacking against a team with a higher line generally suits his game more.
One disappointing point from the game - I overhead a very small group of newbies in toilets opposite stand break into that old "your sh*t and you know you are" chant after we went one up
one thing I have always enjoyed, and it's a long tradition at Dulwich Hamlet is to fully respect the opposition team, yes we tease the opposition goalkeeper - but the vast majority of this is witty and tongue in cheek, and often he receives applause at the end
I know abusing your opponents is a hang over from League football - but need to be vigilant
furthermore, factually Lowesestoft Town were far from sh*t
