Bit late, Tuesday was just about ok. Thought weíd turned a corner with early goal, was brilliant, unreal ball from Khan whoís been the, if not top 2/3, best player by a mile this season for me (stunned when SL withdrew him). Wakeling look lively again, done well to cut it back and good mckirdys off the mark- looked up for it and kept hush with officials- win win. Not sure how they didnít score 5 or 6, carved us open and absolutely dominated us. Brynn brilliant shot stopper. Defence a serious concern for me. Hutton struggles to defend, as Barrow fans told us, McDonald looked way off it again, thought Clayton done well when he wasnít having to chase shite over hit passes, FBT had a rotten first half but got better as the game went on. Thought Gladwin done well again, important cog in that midfield this season. Williams underwhelming. Reed completely anonymous again - offering nothing atm.

Shade and Adeloye useless whey come on, Aguiar put in a few good tackles at end.

Itís getting less shit game by game. Wellens will have that orient side in top 7 end of season for sure. Massive game Saturday.

100% agree with your comments.
Just hoping it starts to fall into place. Without doubt Saturday is so important in many ways.

Found this interesting on Khan - who to be completely honest, I haven't really understood why others seem to really rate so far:

Really liked Khan's play in the build up to our goal and he's got decent ball control, but I'm not convinced he's (as yet) been a stand out.

Iíve not watched any of us this season.

However when the football isnít great and the team isnít winning the fans plaudits tend to go either towards the play who covers the most ground and at least puts the effort in or the goal keeper.

At the moment both.

Might be one for you Nemo - but whats the correlation between our keeper winning POTS and our league finishing position (I know itís very early days to be talking about Brynn as POTS)

Players respected him, well those that primarily wanted to play football.
No messing with him either, makes decisions.
I thought he was a decent Manager.

Results were great here, playing attractive attacking football and now appears to do the same at Orient.

Couldn't give a toss what he says to us, it's what he says to the players that counts.

Oh very high - not in the Sheridoom season, but that was because we used six keepers and Kovar was the main one - Lee Camp won 5 MoM in quick succession during his brief spell at the end of the season basically by being reasonably competent.

Goalkeeper POTS over the last 25 years or so:

2016/17 Vigouroux (Relegated from League One)
2005/6 Rhys Evans (Relegated from League One)
2000/1 Steve Mildenhall (Avoided relegation by a point from D2)
1999/2000 Frank Talia (Relegated from Division One)
1997/8 Fraser Digby (18th in D1)
1996/7 Fraser Digby (19th in D1)

Relegation seasons where keeper didn't win POTY:

93/94 Moncur (Prem season)
94/95 Taylor (D1)
10/11 Ritchie (League One)
20/21 Odimayo

A keeper has never one POTY in a season we finished in the top two thirds of the division. So fingers crossed!

Also dispiriting whilst doing this to realise we have been relegated one in every four seasons in my lifetime!

As expected really.

If your keeper is winning a lot of MotM awards you arenít in for a good season, FACT!

Obviously itís massively early day this season but if it continues like thisÖ

Add to that Scott Endersby in 1984, a short but good keeper who easily won the POTY, we finished in 17th place in Div 4 that season, our lowest ever finish.

08/09? or were we always just flirting that year without ever actually being in the bottom 4? memory isn't great that season.

I'd say 08/09  - Malpas start of the season but simon cox's goals took us over the line by a few points.  We were well in the shit and bobbling along in 20thish for most of that season

At least you're young (ish) and can have hope.

We 69 ers were glory hunters and ended up with a life of pain and disappointment.   Wink

Fair point...you're right.  I shouldn't forget Cox's goals (especially away at Northampton).
