I read the match report on Altrincham V Ebbsfleet in the NLP and saw how Fleet were 4-1 down at half time and thought of the Boxing Day game last season. Dennis must have been re-living a nightmare.
So I watched both the matches over the Christmas period last season just to get a feeling of what I'm missing from the present games. Maybe we should get the lads to watch these games themselves. Yes we had Wall, Sheringham scoring in these games and I am wondering if the present squad could get anywhere near the performances of those two games.
What is it that Dowse cannot get from his present squad that he got 10 months ago? Yes we are players missing from back then but the present squad is HIS squad and for the life of me I can't see this crowd emulating anything near as good.
Maybe I'm wrong and maybe the win on Saturday is the kick-start the lads need. We have good players in there but no one seems to be playing TOGETHER.
Yes, I'm down about what I have watched this season and I needed a lift. Maybe they could do with a lift and get them to watch the Boxing Day game to see what it's like to put in a performance that everyone can shout about. Because there's not many of those about.
I need a holiday.
