BLUES 5 - 2 BURRIDGE AFC

Wednesday 23rd August
Coal Park Lane

With the season fast approaching Burridge find themselves with work to do. Although it could be argued that substitutions disrupted the flow of the game, they would not have been happy with the way they capitulated during the second half. Despite this they took the lead when Greg Baker’s cross was headed home by Ben Hutton, but Blues - who seemed considerably more organised – were 2-1 up by half-time.

Inbetween conceding further goals, Ben Hutton hammered home from thirty yards – his fifth goal in three pre-season fixtures; leaving Burridge something to cling to. They undoubtedly have the materials available to have a far better season than last year, but need to consolidate and concentrate on defending as a team if they're to fulfill their potential.

NB NEXT FIXTURE IS WEDNESDAY 31ST AUGUST VERSUS HAMBLE HARRIERS AT MOUNT PLEASANT, HAMBLE. KICK OFF 6PM

SUBS WILL BE COLLECTED BEFORE GAMES FROM NOW ON.
£3 PER PERSON IN FRIENDLIES.
£5 FOR THOSE STARTING LEAGUE GAMES.

Very disappointed about last night, lets be brutally honest, it was dire. Hopefully when Pete returns he can instill some organisation, although Sandy you have done a fine job in his absence. We need to sort out the goalkeeping situation asap!

Indeed, the back four played as well as anyone but the lack of confidence in the keeper showed thru.
I think that organisation is the key, once we have a structure we all know, then the winning streak begins!
heads up boyz!!

it seems in the past couple of seasons or so, we often need to score at least two goals in every game to stand any chance of winning.

thats 11 goals conceded in the last 3 games now. 3 of which came against a veterans side.

people keep saying we let in goals due to our own mistakes, but those mistakes can be rectified. well, those mistakes are still happening.

thats two defeats pre-season now aginst opposition that i consider to have been far weaker than us.

we just have to come together as a team. we seem fitter this year than ever before, have a larger and much stronger squad, so there really should be no excuses now.

lets see how we do against hamble next week when the gaffer's back before we push the panic button.

I hold my hands up, I had a stinker.
Fair play to Sandy for sorting us out the last few games. Plus sacrificing himself to give others game-time.
So don't drive off in a strop if you don't get the ball every 20 seconds. You know who you are.

just a note from rome life is good here and looking forward to start of season.

I agree with what most of you have said bar i do think that as a whole my sunday side is slightly better but our sat. team has better individuals defo in places.

I agree we as a team do seem to get punished by our mistakes but this has 2 sides

A) we need to concentrate as a team more all the time and if mistakes do happen then we should have the players to recitify them.
B) we must capitalise on others teams mistakes more also as!

How many times did i say last season they actually only had 3 shots all game but scored 2 this has to stop as as lee said we will need to score 3 a game.

with a bit of luck, more contcentration, and work rate we can defo improve on last year as the new guys look good
But hey what do i know good luck on weds lads you will be fine!!!!

Two exciting things happen this year:

1. The AFC Burridge season begins, and

2. "Snakes on a Plane" is released.

Which one will have the most success?

I hope its Point 1.
Good luck all, let football be the winner.
