after the nice little run towards the end of the season are we happy for the future as i know a few voices were vocal in regards to the manager and team, the squad we have at the moment has been settled for the few games and looks promising for next season what ever league we are in if we can keep hold of most, as we know at this level not always possible

pretty decent run. now we are safe, do those still want Anderson replaced so we can progress?

Like each summer i'm sure we will lose players, get some new ones and keep some. Im guessing we will be looking for a new goalkeeper, although don't know the terms of James Sheas deal. With Hemel up into the conference south, I do wonder if we will keep our 'link' with them. that could well benefit us.

any idea of the real probability of us being moved into the southern prem?

I'm not sure I agree about it being an interesting season. Seems like a pretty standard season to be honest. Struggle but do enough to stay up.

I've always been behind Anderson and hope he will be here next season as well. It's all well and good saying our team is pretty decent now meaning that we should do quite well next season but players come and go so frequently at this level. I think the key is getting a decent squad of players at the start of the season and keeping the squad settled unlike what we have seen so far from Anderson's reign where he has been chopping and changing throughout the season.

As for being moved to the Southern prem, it's been mentioned before over the past few seasons but never happened. I suppose if a team were to move over to the Southern prem it would likely be us due to our north western location in relation to the other teams in the Ryman prem. In Ryman south Peacehaven and whoever come up with them are dead certs for the Ryman Prem. In Ryman north the two that come up would also be Ryman prem bound. In the Conf south Dorchester are dead certs for the southern prem, Tonbridge angels will be Ryman prem and at the moment Maidenhead occupy the final relegation place and they would be southern prem for sure. Chelmsford or Whitehawk could go down instead of Maidenhead though and would drop into the Ryman prem. In the Conf north Histon would probably go into the southern prem. Oxford City could go down as well and they would go into the Southern prem as well. I think it's unlikely we'll get moved unless they decide to stick Cambridge City and Histon in the Ryman prem which would make sense as Suffolk and most of Norfolk is now Ryman territory.

the travelling looks a lot more hefty in the southern prem but would bring new adventures to new towns and grounds

You've got to be happy with that. Especially after the first half dozen games.
12 points clear of the trapdoor with a game to play. That must be the most comfortable survival since the turn of the century - play-off campaign apart.
In early August, I doubt there were too many fans who wouldn't have settled for losing two more games than were won. In late August, after 2 points in 6 games, I doubt there were many fans who wouldn't have settled for staying up via an AGM Cup win.
Regardless of periodic tales of healthy boosts to the budget, which I take with a pinch of salt, I'd say w15 d13 l17 represents a slight over-achievement.
Dave Anderson seems to have attracted players superior to the calibre that I would have expected... unless the budget tales are true. Given that, you could argue that perhaps another few wins might have been expected.
Cups have clearly been something of a disaster. The Ware defeat merited an inquiry. Lower division opposition to come in the semi and a share of a likely 1,500+ gate in the final - plus a memorable night for fans - was surely worth risking a full strength side and a committed performance for.
Can't see any realistic alternatives to DA for next term.

agreed. think the early season form plus poor cup performances, especially north Greenford, made things look quite bad. things had improved by the time of the ware match but because of that match, doubts crept in again

I don't think it was any coincidence that our form improved dramatically when Anderson made "the best signing I have ever made" to put it in his words of James Shea. It turns out he was probably right.

The league being increased to 24 teams has probably helped us.

James Shea has simply been the shining light this season. Another big plus was the best of last seasons players stayed with us Peacock, Akinola, Lucien, Leech & Wolleaston have given us a solid base.If Odametey stays he will be a further improvement. As for the rest, its been similar player in as another goes out. 50 players signed but not any proper full backs ?

I couldn't understand why louth was playing so much early on, looked a bad signing but think he has done really well recently. Leech is retiring which is a shame but Page and Maissiat did well when they played. Butterworth is a little lazy but does score goals. Osobu offers a pacey threat. Danny Dyer did well on his return too.

Agree with the above, they have given the squad a bit of depth, but not improved it. Page should be as good replacement for Leech. Maissiat is a still Hemel player.
