    Doesn't it say Concord? Is this a banter?

    There's a Concord Beach on the coast beyond their ground, from which the club takes its name.

    No, just another of Griff's typos. Jordan was living at Southend-on-Sea while he was playing with us, so if he's still living there it's a pretty convenient move for him.

    Crazy money...but in the 'modern world' I wouldn't dispute that valuation.

    Personally, I always thought he was as good as Trevor Francis! ;)

    (Google youngsters, Google! ;) )

    And the rest...have a scroll back on DHTV to see how many goals conceded last season were actually down to Drage?

    He became quite an infuriating player to watch on a regular basis. On the face of it he was a perfect fit for our team - a big centre back with the touch and passing range of a midfielder, albeit not the mobility, but I felt he wasted too much energy on chirping at referees and getting involved in niggly running battles with opponents, and I feel this may have led to lapses in concentration at crucial moments. He gave away far too many needless free kicks with unnecessary fouls that wouldn't really have gained much of an advantage even if the referee had let them go. Still relatively young an potentially a very good player if he puts his mind to it.

    Also felt his passing was a bit inconsistent. He'd play the occasional beautiful long through ball, but would also play a lot that would not find his man. A bit like Gerrard at the tail end of his Liverpool career

    Perfectly, unlike a Gerrard pass.

    So, who were the trailists on show last night?

    No idea, perhaps the manager wants it that way, so as not to alert other clubs?

    Feel like baleboy_93 would have had a list of them for the highlights.

    Well I thought that striker up front looked pretty good, so it must be Ryan Moss.

    The tall central midfielder who played alongside Carew in the second half was Marvin Elliot.

    And this is he: Marvin Elliott - Wikipedia

    I can't see him staying for long, then.

    Presumably he's a trialist, so he's actually not with us at all yet.

    Having said that, he used to play with Tomlin at Crawley and hasn't played professionally since 2015. Maybe he will stick around.

    From a friend about his time at Millwall:

    "One of those players who is built really strong but does not physically impose himself on games. He always seemed to be a yard off making any tackle or blocks, arriving too late after the ball had just gone. Looks like he's never really come back from a bad achilles injury in 2012"

    Bristol City and DHFC regular, here.

    Elliot signed for City from Millwall in 2007 and, ironically given the comment above, quickly became the most physically imposing central midfielder City have had in recent times. He was comfortably our player of the year when we reached the Championship playoff final in his first season.

    However, he had a series of bad injuries over the next few seasons and never really got back to his old self. At the time it just seemed like his style of play was too demanding to play at a high level much beyond 30. It surprised me to see that he's still only 33.

    He played in that veterans game a few weeks ago with Gavin, Rio F et al. He'll also have played with Gavin Tomlin at Crawley.

    If he's up for it, and can get fit, I think he'd be great for Dulwich.

    Ask your friend why Millwall didn't sign Ethan or Erhun? Anti-football :D

    I suspect his friend wouldn't know...as he would simply be a Millwall supporter. just as you or me don't know why we release or sign players as we're not part of the management team.
