Come on you Reds!
Looking forward to tonight - with the good weather should be on at their own ground. Good result for us last night - Grays beating W&F. First goal scored by Ruddock - obviously enjoyed his days with us and felt needed to do us a favour. Good on him!
Clearly winning anything is not on our agenda. Pathetic.
It astounds me that the manager put out what looks a weakened team (if that's possible) last night. Is he trying to rest our players after all the long cup runs they've had this season, international duty, and the subsequent fixture pile caused by these matches. NO NO NO!!!!! The league cup would surely be the third best tournament to win behind the Ryman Prem and Trophy (FA Cup = source of finance only). It would appear he has little or no respect for the fans or club. Football is, and always will be a game of opinions, our manager has some very very strange ones. I would imagine our shiny new sponsors will be reviewing there imput to The Boro very closely. Mr Rogers and Co, SHOW SOME BALLS!!!!

Seaside Trev you are 100% right. I urge all supporters to let Mr Anderson know how we feel on Saturday. We played only 4 games in the whole of February. Three in the first week of March with a chance of a decent Cup Final should be manageable.

It's so frustrating even from good old Sussex by the sea mate. I don't think I'm even going to bother with my annual pilgrimage this season.
As we had a game on Tuesday and have another one on Saturday I can certainly understand why Anderson made changes. We've got two massive consecutive games coming up against Enfield Town. If we win one of them or at least avoid defeat in both of them then I think we're as good as safe. You can certainly see why he is prioritising for those games. I don't see why he had to rest quite so many players though especially the goalkeeper. That's the one position that doesn't need resting and judging by the match report it seems as though the replacement keeper was at fault for one of the goals. We haven't done well under Anderson in the three seasons he's been here but as a Harrow Borough fan since the late 1990's struggling in the Isthmian Premier is all I know and have just come to accept it as the norm and that's why I'm not baying for Anderson's head. If Anderson were to leave, what would you expect the new manager to achieve out of interest? To answer my own question, I would like to strive to be like Hendon. A similar sort of club to ours that consistantly finish higher than us each season although I have heard that they have had a healthy budget to play with.
Mid table with a cup run is a success, both achievable until last night. It is not ideal having games Sat,Tues,Thurs,sat, but we had only played six times in the previous six weeks , at this time of the year its probably better playing than training. We also as real incentive of a home semi final & Maidstone in the final.
We have used about 180 players since he became manager. The only one that has really improved the side this season is James Shea, if he leaves in the summer we are back to square one whoever the manager is.
