    My speculative team for Tuesday based on my opinion of yesterdays performance.
    Chapman
    Rowe Smith Taft Daniel
    Feeney Whitehouse Fewster Shields
    Elliott DS-F
    Could it be worse? We have a squad that gives us options, will Jimmy use some of them?

    A decade or so ago, the big games were against Newcastle United, Sheffield United etc.

    Now, the “big game” is against Maidstone United F.C. – the bottom club in the NL.

    The Mighty Stones were the only team in the bottom four to secure a point today.

    “let’s all make believe” that we’re going to stay up.

    “It’s Gettin’ Better (Man!!)” … don’t fool yourselves, we “Ain’t Got Nothin'”

    “It’s Better People” if we face reality and acknowledge that there is no “Magic Pie”.

    “Some Might Say” or ask, “Where Did It All Go Wrong?”

    Jimmy Dean has being heard to ask, “Who Put the Weight of the World on My Shoulders?” – we’ve got to “Roll with It” and that we “Don’t Look Back in Anger” and that “(As Long as They’ve Got) Cigarettes in Hell” then we will all have a “Champagne Supernova” next season.

    Sorry chaps.
    Home win Tuesday night.

    Cant see the changes being that widespread Cass … if you had put Foster back in goal twood ov been a total clean sweep… very doubtful or were you tongue in cheek posting ?? ..either way if Jimmy D goes with your speculative line up 100% i will microwave my Y fronts and eat them.

    2-1 to Scunny … we cant be that bad again ….can we ?

    Needs to go 442 with wingers, this is a win or bust situation. Dean has said the Barnet game won’t define us/our season, he said the same for Wrexham and then again yesterday. So law of averages would say this game will define it….. I hope we give it a real go but I doubt we will.

    When Bru eventually interview Hilton would be good to know the pricing for what will be part time regional football, which was pretty nailed on whilst Swann had his grubby hands on the club.

    Prediction 2-0 maidstone

    Totally agree with your first paragraph .. 442 inc 2 wingers , Elliot up front with ??.. this really is shit or bust so have to go for it.

    Cant see Maidstone beating us but there again i had us nailed on for at least a point at BW

    Well, Scunny have brought in many new players, but still cannot seem to get wins under their belt, with games passing by so quickly, the team need a good few 3 opointers, but with being so inconsistant, this is not going to happen.
    After listening to the manager after yesterdays match, he clearly stated that there are players not giving their best, so these players must be sorted out qand different one’s put into the team in their place.
    prediction Maidstone 3 Scunny 1 or Maidstone 0 Scunny 2——depending on which team turn up.,

    The truth is, they will never get out of the bottom four places. With 345 Scunny fans trecking away yesterday, out of a total gate of only 1,075, it must have seemed like an home game to Scunny, but the teams very poor performance as a reward for our supporters was not much less than pathetic, and however faithful our fans are, they will not keep their 100% backing if it clearly is obviouse that the team still has passengers. Sort it out for the supporters and the clubs sake.

    going on radio commentary and highlights as i do most of the time its difficult to see which players Dean was alluding to re not giving 100% / not being committed … (loan players or signed).. can anyone shed any light on this ?

    The managers got to say something after every game, we don’t have to take it as the gospel truth, part of the problem was his set up, let’s see if the ones who don’t play on Tuesday don’t play for a few games more than likely not Imo.

    214 goals scored / shipped by the duo in 67 games.

    I’m going for a 3-3 draw.

    Wasn’t down to a lack of effort yesterday, poor set up and just poor individual performances.

    Expect 4/5 changes for Maidstone. I’d be tempted with:

    Chapman

    Ogle
    Smith
    Richards
    Leake

    Feeney
    Pugh/Bunker
    Whitehouse
    Shields

    Gerry
    Elliot

    “The SAS!

    Shouldn’t they be the ones not in the team though?

    Are they actually that bad?

    FA Trophy (11th Feb)
    Eastleigh 0-4 Maidstone

    They were already 2-0 up when Eastleigh were reduced to ten.

    They like their short corners by the way!

    We need to be on our A game.
    I think we are stronger now.
    Both teams ship.
    I’ll stick with my 3-3.

    4/4/2

    Chapman

    Ogle Smith Everton Daniel
    Wilson Pugh Butterfield Sheilds
    Elliot Big Gez

    Need 2 upfront. Leake is no better than Daniel and doesn’t have the experience. Still dodgy at the back and Smith looked solid when he came on the other day. Play with some with for once with actual wingers and get some service to the strikers for once.

    I think Wilson will be dropped. Would also like to see Smith and Shields get a start.

    What we all have to realise is how long does it take with 5/6 newcomers to gel, certainly not in three or four matches

    We didn’t need so many new players. They are talking about two extra now. It beggar belief!

    We needed more quality but seemingly opted for quantity. Not all of the newcomers are better than we had (so far) so a couple that are an improvement couldn’t be a bad thing surely.

    We need 2 more if they are better than what we have already got.

    Not needing any the same or worse thand we already have.

    Bunker the only player to come out with much credit from Saturday for me.

    A few that were not there seem to think he should be dropped though.

    Mrs MK’s birthday tomorrow. Offered her a couple of days in Maistone but surprisingly we have ended up in Durham.

    Not thinking she will be up for the livesteam either.
