    Well it's that time again for those of us who follow, support and endure our football passions in the 5th tier of the English Football pyramid to comment and moan about our respective allegiances as the season gets underway.

    After losing out in last season's play off final, Tranmere were at Torquay Utd for the start of this season's campaign and managed to hold out for a 0 - 0 draw with only 9 men left on the pitch at full time. That means that we will be without McNulty and Norwood for the next 3 games, not sure what changes Micky will make for Tuesday's home game.

    Maidstone United mid table general contentedness. Relegation would be disappointing, promotion a financial disaster.

    Long trip to your ground at the end of last season and then we turned out all our reserves to save the first team. That worked well for us when it came to the Play Off final.

    Allegedly, Billericay Town are going to have a wage bill of more than £1.6 million this season.

    Better result for us last night, cracking goals from Cook and Norburn. Should have had half a dozen more - Alabi's miss!

    Yes the score should have been at least 6 - 0. The defence still can't defend free kicks but the new signings played well and Cook and Norburn were good up front.

    Well Sutton turned us over today. They were able to disrupt our pattern and play and the players weren't able to deal with it. Roll on Tuesday and Guiseley away.
     
  12. Sutton did that ^ to Orient on opening day too, and we never got going. Their narrow pitch (rather than the 3G) didn't help us either.

    But 2 home wins on the bounce for the first time in ages (actually, about 20 months) with the completely new team starting to gel & pass it around has got us up & running. Rode our luck a bit v Maidstone yesterday, but it's just rather nice to concentrate on moaning about on-field tactics and players again rather than screaming constant obscenities at the Becchetti & his useless goons up on the Directors Balcony.
     
  13. Excellent! Nothing says welcome to non-league & don't be giving us your la-di-da airs & graces like the deserved 6-1 pumping Orient supinely succumbed to on Bromley's new 3G pitch last night (nothing wrong with the surface, & everything to do with being bullied by a side that competed harder & forced loads of mistakes).
