Burridge AFC 1 - 3 West Meon

Sunday 11th December 2005
Burridge Rec

3-5-2 Dave Hopkins, Mark Sanderson, Paul Dyke, Kev Willsher, Ross Bryant, Greg Baker, Rich Allan, Scott Burnet, Bryn Schwodler, Paul Andrews, Jay Schwodler
H/T: 1-0

Hello everyone. I thought I'd let guest writers fill in the gaps - I'm suffering from a bout of writer's block. BUT, I have to mention that the league table makes for upsetting reading. As Spotted Cow have pulled out, we have only won once. The same amount of times Gems have!

This means we are second to bottom, as West Meon & Warnford have gone 2 points ahead of us with 4 games in hand! Played 9, won 1, drawn 4, Lost 4. Before Sunday's games we'd scored the same amount of goals as Gems.

Relegation battle on!

Barrie, please can you refrain from this language please.

Its very depressing at the moment, we are not scoring enough and conceding too many, we must all work harder to try and turn things around! Yesterday summed up our season really, we just can't punish teams, they were a pretty poor outfit and we should have won comfortably. Do we really want to suffer the indignity of relegation?

Mark Sanderson said...

Okay fellas, dust off your Sunday blues, because this Saturday we've a real six pointer - away to Survey. Let's face it, whoever plays for them, we still owe them one from last year. Remember that penalty?

We're on the same amount of points, BUT we have two games in hand, let's make it count!

After looking at the table I feel like I want to go home and cry!

I'm down on Saturday so I'll come along and watch the game.

We need to do some serious rethinking.

Maybe we should try three up top and/or makesure we Always have a holding player.

Also what maurice said about wingers attacking the far post is very important as at times i felt crosses went in with no challegne.

Trouble is to do all this you must get up and down the pitch and are we really fit enough?

Maybe we should use this as a learning curve and next year ensure that pre season is done and started early with lots of running, etc

but hey what do i know

Mark Sanderson said...

I've already thought it through. Netley Country Park, running on the seafront. Perhaps with a tyre on a rope attached to our backs, starting in late July, early August.

Anonymous said...

You're totally right Dykey, but no-one ever listens. When it comes to pre-season, half the team don't want to know. If you're not fit at the start, you're never going to be. I knew this would happen when we played that first friendly...

Start running now. Everyone together before training, for at least 1/2 hour, then once a week on your own. How many people up for that this Wednesday? Oh what a surprise...

Mark Sanderson said...

Why I ought to ring your neck anonymous. Your bugging the hell out of me!

Your welcome to join me on either this evening or Thursday for a light gallop.

Look on the bright side, we're never involved in the title race. Usually we're loitering without intent in mid table. At least we've got something to play for and there's plenty of time to do so.

I do my own running thanks Mark. We only loiter around mid-table every season, because this happens every season. When half the team are content with being un-fit and are happy at going through the motions, we will continue in this mediocre way.

I have decided to concentrate on my game from now on and am going to try and excell the best that I can, that's all I can do. I haven't enjoyed playing the last month or so, either day, and I just hope it improves next year. There will be no more anonymous posts from me again this season, so I won't bug you anymore Mark.

Mark Sanderson said...

I'm sorry anonymous I didn't mean to hurt your feelings.

You big gaylord!

I've shown you mine, now show yours!

Mark Sanderson said...

Anyway, we bulldozed them first half Sunday. Although Paul has exceeded my expectations up front, having him & Jay up there is asking a lot of them. C'mon Jay we've all seen your shooting! FOUR!

I'd get him at the back, tackling and hassling, and put me in midfield so I stop setting the oppo up with freebie goals.

Luke said...

I think you should concentrate on your own game anonymous and stop making sweeping generalisations. How do you know what people get up to all week, I keep myself fit. Also put a name to your comment if you have so much confidence in what you say.

Sounds like a job for Mr Motivator( Derrick Errol Evans)

You have to check his site, the music is fantastic.

My breast op was a success so I am available to run the line on sat, providing its not freezing, not wet, not suicidally dull and we concentrate on keeping the ball rather than moaning about our defencive inadaquacies.

well lads, after getting in from my last day of work b4 my hols, i sense there is an atmosphere brewing. maybe there should be a meeting so people can air some views? it may work, you never know. maybe this forum is turning into a bad idea if some want to hide behind anonymous posts and just cause trouble?? i dont know. 1 thing i do know, relagation from meon valley1 is totally OUT OF THE QUESTION. it aint gonna happen. positive thinking. thats right isnt it scott?! anyway, im running away from this sinking ship for a couple of weeks, but hope to retun to it still afloat.

have a great xmas guys and a happy new year. see ya all in jan, Lee.

Ps. anonymous, get bent.

iceman said...

I do agree that anonymous should have the balls to reveal his identity. His point about fitness is true though, i for one admit that i am not as fit as i was last season, playing two games in a weekend kept me so much fitter, i thought cutting down to one would improve things, i was wrong. Anyway, lets get this relegation battle underway, im up for it, who else is?????

fielder said...

im up for it kev. cant wait to start playing again. as soon as i touch down from holiday, ill start training and running on a reg basis and do my bit to fight for the cause. see y'all next year. xxx
