Another defeat, 3-0 this time.

Wasn't there myself, so can't comment on performance.

Was not at the game either but with Enfield and Leiston winning today we are going to blow a play off place
if we don't get this sorted out very quickly. 5 games left 2 at home and 2 of the games against the top two the omens are not good. The home game against Enfield now holds massive significance on Bank Holiday Monday and has become a real 6 pointer.
Spoke to one of the Senior players the other day and he admitted there is a confidence issue. Only real way I can see that being turned round is to get a win by any means possible and at the moment that seems very unlikely .
There is a refreshing feel about the results at the moment .... it reminds me of the good old days !

Just returned from the game. My first visit to Wingate's ground. Strange, soulless place with a stand so far from the pitch that I suspect it's in a different postcode - and no running track round the ground which would explain it. Very odd.
Terrible display and unusually for me I left early. No sign of Gavin Rose; I assume he was serving a suspension for the sending off at Hornchurch. No sign of Terrell Forbes either. Matt Drage played centre back alongside Pinnock. Professor Google informs me that he's played for Kingstonian and Hampton. He actually looked reasonably ok.
First goal was a complete howler from Pinnock: caught in possession and their forward only had Phil to beat (Phil wearing a Hannibal Lecter mask after his broken nose last week). Just after the first goal Abnett nearly gave away a second, caught in possession just outside the box, but this time their forward put the ball over. Dulwich had played reasonably well in the first half, but - usual story as of late - a lot of pretty football but no real threat. Clunis looking the only really dangerous player. (He was captain today).
2nd half: their 2nd was a low ball across the box and their player put it in from a tight angle - possible offside? 3rd goal stonewall penalty with Phil left stranded by the defence with their forward only having to round Phil to score. Ottaway and James were waiting to come on just before the goal. By the time they got on the game was over. I left not long after.
I can't help feeling that all the chopping and changing in team selection isn't doing us much good. Vidal and Wanadio back today, James on the bench and Jarrett nowhere to be seen. Am I the only one who is baffled by the continued selection of Hibbert over Dixon? He looked useful early on in the season on the wing and even as full back, but I thought he was terrible today and, in fact, I thought he would have been out of the team permanently after the Bognor debacle. Benjamin looked quite handy last week against E Thurrock, but looked shockingly unfit today, and is horrendously one-footed. Pinnock's been superb all season, but is becoming worryingly error-prone. Let's hope this is a temporary blip.
I think we'll probably just sneak into the play offs, but the big concern obviously is the fact that the goal's have totally dried up. I didn't make it to the Bury game, so the only goal I've seen us score from open play since January is James's opener against VCD - last week's 3 were 2 pens and an o.g. Frankly, given what I saw today, I think the best bet is to go with youth - viz McCoulskey (unless he's suspended for the rest of the season.

Gavin was certainly there as was Forbes, who has tweaked a hamstring when I spoke to him.
A truly awful performance, I wasn't at Bognor but I would imagine it would rank up there. we've had a lot of 'time to turn it round', 'performance not up to it' 'we let you down' comments. Time for the talking to stop and actions to take over.
Benjamin works hard, but is a blunt instrument. Pinnock our best player by a country mile this season has now given 2 away in 2 games. Wanadio has been anonymous in the last month. We have little/no creativity and even less punch up front. I've said before that the players don't become bad overnight. Its a confidence issue. leaders have to emerge on and off the pitch if we are to make the play offs
No more talk

I'd say that was worse than Bognor, as Bognor were on fire the day we lost there and we were effectively beaten inisde the first ten minutes, and weren't that bad overall. At Finchley we had the better of the goalless first half hour, ruined as a spectacle by the strong crosswind, but once we went two down we just seemed to cave in. When the third went in it looked as if we may be totally humiliated.

Confidence is the issue for me, and lack of on-field leadership. Kevin James must be on the field for as much time as possible, and from the start right now. He seemed to galvanise us on Saturday, but it was too late to make a difference.

Drage is a good addition based on his performances against us for K's & Hampton. Benjamin is not really suited to our game, other than as a squad player providing a tactical option. Wanadio is dangerous at his best but lacks guile; unlike Jarrett for instance, who really knows how to unlock a tight defence and would be a major asset for a team going flat out for the title right now.
