I honestly think that this will be the thread that, when they do some great digi-archaeological survey of the entire internet in 3984, will come to define what it was like to be a Dulwich Hamlet supporter during the dying throes of late capitalism. It'll be on the front page of loads of online museums, the Rosetta Stone which finally allowed historians to make sense of the mysterious concept of 'hipster football'.

Should be going, planning on being in Brighton just after lunch and walking along the coast to Newhaven.

That wasn't easy. It took a good three hours of composition in Victoria Wetherspoons and getting thrown out for singing too loud before that particular ditty took formation.
I remember Mishi & I getting thrown off a 176 bus for singing 'Waltzing Matilda' with a couple of Aussies we'd got chatting to on the way home after Dave Garland's first match as manager in 1997.

I didn't know there was any behaviour bad enough to warrant expulsion from the 176.
My wife was on a 176 one morning when the whole bus load of passengers were turfed off. (Admittedly, It was to make them walk up Dog Kennel Hill, and get back on at the top, because the bus couldn't make it up in the snow when loaded .... must have been winter of 81/82 !) ..... sorry not dHFC related.....

I presume we'll see a few changes to the starting lineup for this game after the performance against VCD. I think Dean McDonald will be benched as he looked out of sorts/disinterested on Saturday, culminating in one bizarre attempted shoulder pass which went straight out, and was then subbed straight after the second VCD goal. Rhys to start in his place so we would have two proper wingers again which might help Moss get some decent service. I also think Jack Dixon will start, having been unlucky to be on the bench after being one of our best players in the previous few games. Plus as he's ex-Lewes he should be fired up for it. With Dixon in, I'd drop Ash as he's not offering much at the moment (taking out his penalty and assist against Staines) - too casual at times, slows the play down by taking an extra touch and offers very little defensively. We will have to find someone to take the free kicks and corners but am sure we can manage. If Jordan Brown is ready to start, I'd bring him in at left back as he's more of an attacking threat than Jordan Hibbert and just as solid defensively. Other possibility if Gav wants to shake things up, could be to drop Sankofa who's looked a bit suspect recently (beaten for pace a few times against Staines and outmuscled by Sappleton against VCD), move Mitchell Nelson into centre back with Drage (assuming Ethan is still out) and put Jordan Hibbert at right back. Thoughts?

It'd be nice to commandeer a 176 to Lewes, for those of us who can't scrape together the cash for the train fare...

Agree! Wouldn't be surprised if we don't see much more of McDonald after Saturday!

I do love the drama of Gav's Nights of the Long Knives, but it's usually better when they happen earlier in the season than at the beginning of squeaky-arse time.
