    International call ups. Maidenhead asked for the game to be postponed under National League rules.

    Maidenhead on international call ups - these dudes are having a laugh, particularly judging by the Portsmouth performance. None of which assists me - where are they at, I ask you! This whole international breaks bollocks is becoming a farce.

    Ok but hopefully an enforced two week 'break' won't do anything adverse to our team's performance when we resume.

    Nail on proverbial head - and think its actually three! Big question? It would have been wise to get a friendly against a league team kicking their heels this weekend. Leeds perhaps? After all, not much for anyone to watch come Saturday Bradford Pity apart (who would struggle to beat Avenue at present), would have bound to have been a big crowd, kept momentum going. After Leeds test, the following week would have been a cake walk. I am rather surprised Planty didn't seize the opportunity.

    Come on Maindenhead, you bottled it - on a piss poor run of form, and putting off the inevitable. Who are your chaps playing for, anyway? Vatican City? Tierra Del Monte? Andorra? San bloody Marino? Listen, Iron Maiden(head) and their roadies would have given us a stern test than your crew at present. Off to Weston Super with you next season, I fear.

    Try Knaresborogh v Yorkshire Amateurs, top of the table affair.

    Or Shildon v. Ashington. Martin Gray (ex York City) is the recently appointed Head Coach for the Railwaymen.

    Apologies for the inaccuracy above. Martin Gray is the Sporting Director of Shildon F C - and for anyone interested the result of this Northern League fixture today was 1 - 1.

    This game should have been put to bed in the 1st half. We should have scored 3/4 goals with any luck with a dominating performance in the 1st half. We seemed to settle for our lead and paid the penalty giving away the controversial goal from the supposed back pass. Thanks to our centre backs we came away with a much needed win. Thought the introduction of Woods on the right side was strange. For me he needs to be just behind the front men. At Salford he was played wide on the left- strange?
    Thought Leesley was generally poor but managed an assist for our winning goal so he’ll still be playing at Solihull. Solihull looked very good on TV on Friday so it will take something special from us to get anything out of that .

    From what i saw of 'The Moors' on Friday night, i can't see Beck and Knowles mixing it with their defence on Tuesday !

    Agree it should have been all over by half time, all our good attacking play stemmed from our right and agree that Leesley was poor. Thought Burrell on the left tightened up the defence Substitutions do seem to be strange it seems some players can not be substituted whether they are having a good game or not and others are on the rota for being substituted even if they are playing well.
    However having said that we got the win

    Solihull will be a big test given the size of their players!

    Will need to pick up Solihull’s central midfield runners, take our chances, & try and keep that elusive clean sheet on Tuesday!!!!
    Think their extra day recovery time might prove to be to their advantage!
    You need to be playing a high tempo game right from the start against this lot!

    Don't think the extra day will be a factor we have a very fit team, however launching up to Beck will be pointless against their centre halves who will just love that style of play. Need to keep it on the ground using our wide players

    Maidenhead manager, in his post match interview, said our number 11 was excellent!!!
    People see things differently I suppose.

    Think the Maidenhead Manager was referring to deliveries as in Leesley's assist for the winning goal. Saying they knew we were good at corners as our deliveries were on the money.

    If their manager says that i can now fully understand why they are where they are in the league. They are a poor side!
