    'Mini-riot'? Hmm....a bit of handbags, a punch or two..me thinks you've never been near a 'mini-riot' if that's your benchmark! ;)

    I've consulted page 26, chapter 3, subsection 3.14 of the Handbags Almanac and it says that if an incident begins with a loon jumping on to the pitch to start proceedings, 22 players being involved and a punch or two being thrown it MUST be defined as a mini-riot. Don't shoot the messenger.

    Also, you appeared in the Sky footage and looked supremely dashing.

    I think it's a lot less for a riot, never mind a mini-riot. One thing I do know...a riot is NOT a few middle class Football Factory wannabee types throwing plastic chairs at a World Cup or European Championships finals...don't think they'll be so 'brave' once we qualify for Russia! ;)

    Could've been worse...I might have been a pin-up boy or girl in the wonderful Evening Standard ;)

    I seem to remember that only three people are needed for an action to be declared as a riot - let alone a mini-riot. It might be five - I’m sure it's an odd number though.

    Just looked it up - 12 apparently.

    Indeed, it was posted on the official Club website on Saturday evening, and is a 'sticky' at the top of the 'news stories':

    Which is why I started my post with the word IF

    Thought it was worth highlighting on here as well, if it saves anybody a wasted journey.

    Which is why my post never actually criticised yours, it was merely pointing out that it was highlighted elsewhere as well, which will hopefully save some a wasted journey, if they don't look on here.

    Anyone feeling sorry for a certain club at the lower end of our division who lost 7-0 last night at home to Staines? 25 goals conceded in 10 games.

    They're so lucky it's only one to go down this season.

    Well... Worthing got their second point of the season last night and would have gone above T&M if Leatherhead hadn’t managed a 92nd minute equaliser.

    They play each other on Saturday at Imperial Fields. Classic ‘six pointer’.

    The difference between the two is...Worthing will return home in the near future, so their revenue streams will return, so they should be able to improve their squad...

    It's been obvious ever since we came up with Maidstone that the gap between Premier and D1S/N is widening a lot of the promoted sides have racked up 100 points and/or goals, then struggled at the higher level. I think the highest finish by a newly promoted side since us is Harlow's tenth place last season. I remember reading the Sudbury manager's notes in the programme when we went there on the opening day of last season. He confidently stated that they were good enough to hold their own and he expected to finish in the top half. They went back down. Tooting needed to strngthen ther squad after promotion, but their manager seems to have kept faith in an almost unchanged side. Maybe they just can't afford to make major changes?

    I don't think the reorganisation of the leagues at the end of this season - creating a fourth league/division at our level - is going to help. It will dilute the quality with the best sides being scattered amongst four divisions instead of three, and another raft of small clubs will be promoted above their natural level to make up the numbers. We'll end up with more clubs like Thamesmead, VCD, Witham, Brentwood, Peacehaven having the odd season or two of struggling, then going back down again.

    The only 'plus side' is that the divisions will go back to a more sensible 22 per division.

    Personally I think there should, in an ideal world, be a scrapping of National League National, which should merge north and south with League Two; and three geographical divisions below those, north, south and midland. Can't to bothered to work out permutations below that. This isn't the Kempster board after all! ;)

    Their correspondent was in the press box for the first half, then presumably went wandering around the ground during the second half. He looked quite young and is probably fairly typical of many of the people now paying to watch us in large numbers.
