Where do I start ?

Well we deserved to win but it was not a great game,

The ref spoilt it by stopping the game every few minutes,

It was not a dirty game but the Ref managed to book 6 of our team and one of theirs,

We played 4-5-1 and do not listen to Hurst if he says anything different,

Braintree was no threat and one goal was always going to win it,

That goal came from a Clay shot from 25 yards that was only partly stopped by their keeper,

John Lewis was on hand to smash it into the net for the winner,

Nobody played badly the team worked hard and did what they had to do,

Pittman came on near the end just in time to get booked,

I have a sore throat with shouting at that useless Ref,

Finally it was good to see John Fenty with a smile on his face after the game.

A tough game which did not produce a great number of chances. We were the better side and had the better chances although neither side were particularly enterprising near the other's goal. LJL worked hard but often looked isolated. I would say Toto was our MOM - he was dominant at the back. Magnay was his usual steady self.

I'd guess there was probably 350 ish Mariners. It definitely sounded like we made up 50% of the crowd.

Special mention for the ref who issued far too many yellows. Not a bad challenge in the game with no niggle between the teams.

A fairly dour game but one in previous years we wouldn't have won. It was good to see a Town goal in 4 attempts at their place!

Interested to hear what other Mariners thought of the game.................

PS the houses near the ground are have going to win any architectural awards.

That's what was said on RH too Pete.
I mean the 4-5-1 bit !

Just back myself, by no means a classic but only one team that looked like they we going to win. Braintree didn't threaten us at all really.

Town fans were fantastic tonight as per usual away from home.

Up The Mariners!

Apparently Pittman got booked for kicking the ball away when it wasn't even him! Lol.

Today we got our team back - town fan leaving Wembley may 2016

Very strange game.we were never comfortable despite the fact we played some excellent stuff at times and that Braintree only had one decent chance. There was always the danger we'd concede at a set piece or that the hilarious ref would give a soft penalty.am not convinced by our defending at set pieces.we were brilliant for the first 20 but still couldn't create a chance.the pace we have these days is frightening, but have to say Braintree were quick and resolute.
Just one of those games where both defences were the strongest units, but we edged it from a speculative clay shot,which was almost our only shot on target.probably deserved it as we were classier and more enterprising.
Thought Alan 'the gardener' Massey handled the shop as well as anyone I've seen and shop hardly won a header all night.just wish he'd played up against the tall 31 who looked far more insecure.also thought their little 26 in central midfield looked decent.
Nobody had an outstanding game but all played their part. Toto was good as was magny. Best game I've seen mackreth play.thomas and Arnold were a constant threat.clay and Disley were strong and busy in midfield.pell was a bit of a disappointment.some great touches but a bit off the pace and is hardly a human Dynamo!. Shop was busy and a handful as usual.dont think I was the only town fan who thought his fierce rising shot for the goal was going to end up going out the ground! Glad to have seen history .our first goal and win at our bogey ground.well battled town, the sort of game that teams who go up have to win

Should add the ref was funny but half The cautions were for kicking the ball away.do pro footballers have a brain?
Ps Pittman definitely did kick or nudge the ball away in order to disrupt Braintree so it was deserved

Deserved victory.
Not silky football but as we know, Braintree is a hard place to go. The pitch looked ok but the ball bobbled about most of the night and it was never easy to play.

My MOM was Toto but lots of decent performances. Took a mate with me, he had never seen either side and he thought Aswad was quality.

I am a great believer that momentum is vital and continuity too.

Long way to go for all. The posting of last seasons league table after a similar number of games shows that. Some teams come from nowhere whilst some fall by the wayside. Strap yourselves in. We are going on the roller coaster!!!

Regarding comments about it being another tight game, I was surprised to note that no fewer than 8 teams in our division have conceded a goal a game or less so far this season. This seems a pretty high figure to me. A quick look through past seasons indicates that usually just 3 or 4 teams manage to defend this well so things look like they are going to be tighter this season. Makes these narrow victories all the more important.
