    Dulwich Mishi Old Skool Terrace Dinosaur-embracing the new-veau!

    To be fair I don’t blame Colchester United. No point having him with us if he was regularly on the bench. That was hardly helping his development.

    Son of Roy Thinks Gavin Rose is great

    Harry Ottaway scored in Carshalton's 5-1 win over Wingate and Finchley today. In the Bostik Premier Dorking are already champions and Worthing and Carshalton are in the playoff places. We might lend either team our support if they make it? Especially against Tonbridge eh Mr BIG?

    I reckon "a few".

    I thought we really missed him in the first 2 months last season, but then Reise Allassani happened.

    Sekajja was the right man at the right time for me, technically good enough, very fit and athletic, great team player. I got the impression he needed to build his confidence when he first arrived, but having done that he chased a more lucrative move and didn't get what he needed.

    I reckon he's effectively a "professional footballer" without a day job, or at least a decent well paid one. He's played for Bognor, Havant and now Gosport in the last 2 years so I suspect he shares a flat in the Portsmouth area and that's his job.

    A part of me does think he just got on a 15 game hot streak at a very convenient time that he’ll never replicate. And so in a sense we actually got lucky.
    A much smaller part of me thinks the same about Reisse but I tell it to shut up.

    The thing with both of them is that they've had a lot of spells out on loan from bigger clubs to smaller clubs, coming off the bench or playing for development teams; they need regular starts for open age teams at any level, and they've only really had that with us.

    Will be interesting to see Reise on Monday if he plays, and at least we don't have to worry about him sending us down!

    Have to disagree with you there, scousedom: think Sekajja is one of the best strikers we've had in the Gavin era. I think PP is right and that he was a player short of confidence when he arrived, but once that confidence grew he was spanking in hat tricks in play off semi finals. He's just become another that's suffered at the ill-advice of an agent, but, if Dan Sweeney is a Barnet regular, then I think he was good enough for a similar level. I Ihink he had talent in abundance.

    Depending on where you think Reise's best position is, I think you could argue he's (*steels himself for another controversial argument*) the best striker to play under Gav.

    For me Reise has to play through the middle; I suspect a lot of managers just think he's too small for that and want to use him as a winger or impact substitute, which is a waste.

    Well part of me disagrees with me too! And off the top of my head I can’t think of anyone to propose who is better that I’m prepared to argue passionately for. But I do think it’s hard to argue against Sekkaja’s post-Hamlet record. One or two failures is fine but keep moving clubs it must say something?
    With Reisse, yeah he would definitely have been fine at our level. That’s why I say it’s a very very small part of me that doubts him - the nagging doubt thing is based purely on his stats pre/post Jan for us. (And I accept of course that he was getting extra marking treatment by then and so making goals for others. Like I said, I keep telling that part of me to shut up).

    Shouldn’t trust anyone that signed for Woking on loan over us.

    It's interesting, Mark Robins, the Coventry manager recently said that he thinks Reise is a left winger:

    Sky Blues boss on summer signing who's dropped off the radar

    I always felt that with his vision and weight of pass, he'd make a decent no. 10 and that at a higher level he may get bullied if he were to play as an out-and-out striker. Either way, I hope he gets a run in the Coventry side - comfortably good enough for that level, I think.

    I have no coaching qualifications whatsoever, but for me he's a number 10 not a winger. You're talking out of your Pro-licence backside Robins!

    No satisfied with keeping Fergie in a job for 20 years too long, he’s now trying to ruin Reise by playing him on the wing?! Robins’ evil knows no bounds!!

    Matt Drage ended the season playing for Hartley Wintney in the Southern League Premier South Division.

    Son of Roy Thinks Gavin Rose is great

    John Everitt's funeral at Hither Green crematorium on Wednesday 8th May 1.30pm. It would be great if a few of us could attend wearing Dulwich scarves. John stopped playing football in 1967 before most Dulwich fans were born. Our history is one of the things that makes the Hamlet so special.

    I remember him well when I used to stand at the top of the banking behind the greendale end of the old stadium. He was an old fashioned direct centre forward, who often went through opposing defenders and once scored with a shot from the half-way line.

    I remember chatting to John at the club's centenary dinner in 1993 and he was very friendly and affable. I briefly chatted to him again at matches when he was part of the original group of former players co-ordinated by the club's then vice chairman Brian Shears, along with Denis Joyce and Cyril Nash amongst others, who had reunions a couple of times a season on matchdays. I remember him saying that he had a lot of trouble with his knees, and from articles and statistics in Hamlet programmes it's clear that whilst he was a regular first team player from the age of 17 or 18 he must have had a number of spells out injured and rarely featured in the first team during the latter part of his career.

    Another individual award for Ethan Pinnock, to cap an excellent promotion season with Barnsley. This is his third promotion, after doing it with us in 12/13 and Forest Green Rovers in 16/17.

    Never thought I'd say this but I think Ethan's ceiling is higher than Erhun's and I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up in the Premier League one day.

    He's already played more matches at a higher level than Erhun before Barnsley were relegated last season. Erhun's first season in the Second Division with Bolton seems to have been a big disappointment. He barely seems to have got a chance on the pitch and they've been relegated as well as plunging into an off field crisis. I hope he bounces back next season as he really should be in his prime now at the age of 27 or so.

    His stock was pretty high when he left Walsall, so I would hope it shouldn't be too hard for him to find another club this summer. He's really the sort of player you have to build your side around.

    Charlton wanted him during the last transfer window but Bolton wouldn't let him go because their move for someone else fell through.

    Sheffield United were reported to be interested when his contract was up at Walsall last year. If only he'd gone there instead of Bolton it might have turned out very different.
