The one time in the year I get to start this thread.

A huge win and with others around us dropping points it all looks too much of a possibility now. The first half was relatively scrappy and we grew into it but Woking really didn't offer much of a threat till they had nothing to lose. The one opportunity that fell to Rendell in the first half was squandered but we really kept him out of the game which is no easy task the times I've seen him the guy has been ruthless. Palmer really looked pumped up for the it, that was the best performance I've ever seen him put in at Kingsfield much to the annoyance of friends who support Woking.

I felt Aswad had Mackreth in his pocket all game and really couldn't get anything from him and though Arnold will be annoyed at the great chance he missed in the first half, when he got his head up he really made the Woking defence worry.  We easily handled Woking I really can't believe we have such a great opportunity now to push for the League never mind playoffs!

Are you sure you were there? I'm sure Thomas wasn't playing.

That must've been a Town fan in an afro wig.

great result despite an unnecessarily nervous ending.

better team overall and despite the odd chance in the second half they didn't really trouble us until the goal. The "front" three of Ollie, Arnold and JPP were particularly effective in the first half, linked up well and posed a threat. Arnold should have done better with his chance but he had a decent game otherwise. Mackreth had a hand in both goals but MOM for me was Palmer. looks the real deal.

nervous ending when Hannah was upfront by himself to protect a one goal lead but we kept our nerve and held out. great celebrations at the end.

if we can keep finding ways to win and results keep going our way who knows what can happen. all we can do as fans is keep turning up and supporting like we have done recently. UTM!

An unflappable (except for the Woking goal) and supremely professional performance from Town.  Possibly not as fluid and exciting as some would want, but that was at least partly due to Woking (how dare they) wanting to do their bit to win at home.

Particularly in the first half, Pearson's head was a ball magnet -- he was clearing just about everything airborne, and the goal efforts of Woking that I remember were long-range shots flying high and wide.

We seemed to be playing the uptempo press-from-the-front style that served us so well at Barnet, and we looked very composed for the most part.

Arnold and Robertson were solid down the left in the first half, and Mackreth saw a lot of the ball in the 2nd (where we were standing, and I couldn't really see the other wing - damned bright sunshine), Arnold was a real handful for their defence, his miss notwithstanding, and Palmer was full of running and threat.  Disley seemed to get forward a lot more than recently, and covered a heck of a lot of ground.  As ever, Magnay's engine and commitment were top-rate.  But -- good all-round team performance, and the two goals were worked through dogged persistence and supportive teamwork.  This team has really good attitude.

I don't know if it was clever game management tactics, but Woking stuck the Town fans in the open side stand, not in our usual end.  Though it was nice to watch a sea of wigs wobble in the breeze and sunshine all afternoon, the lack of a roof stopped us creating a racket in the full Barnet away style-y, while their fans - using the behind-the-goal end were amusingly vocal -- never heard them at all in my previous visits with Town.

Solid performance today. Makreth worked hard and did well not to get knocked off the ball all the time by defenders twice his weight.  JP creating them problems. Zlatan is the difference for us - hope he was just suffering from first game backitis. Arnie did everything but score today. Created some good chances but fluffed em. We were well on top either side of the second goal when Woking seemed to fall to pieces. Some great pics of the team in wigs.

Buzzing all the way back.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Was interesting to watch from a side stand.different perspective etc. v difficult to name a motm so many were excellent.certainly wouldn't give it to Palmer although he obviously played a big part.mckeown was back to last seasons best.commanding and good distribution.magnay played to his normal high standard.gald that it was Robertson rather than
thomas handling Betty.robertson is a safe but sure option.nsiala was good and no real toto moments.thought Pearson was outstanding.hes great for this level one of the best centre halves in the conference. Might struggle in the league but at this level he's invaluable. Disley was superb, so much spring to win headers.this is the best Disley season for me. Clay did an awful lot of good stuff after a woeful opening 15 mins. Mackreth was anonymous for the first hour, Arthur handled him well but came increasingly influential as the game opened up.arnold was excellent, shame he missed that 1 on 1.can only think his aberration over new year was down to illness. Pittman was a level too good for this, powerful, quick strong and dangerous. Just hope his hamstrings can hold out for the last 10 weeks. Q impressed with Woking in patches.betsy is a class act. The 17 up front was good, v threatening a slightly lesser ability Pittman and Saar the skinny black centre back proved more than a match for Palmer and was q classy as well. V con trolled performance from town.they looked the sort of team that wins the conference, big strong , powerful with lots of pace and very efficient, not making many mistakes. With results going perfectly it's all getting v interesting

Good all round performance . It looked all too easy for town with Woking not offering much until we make it difficult for ourselves letting in a late goal to give them a chance of a point they didn't deserve .
Best performance from Macreth I've seen since he joined . He looks like he's settled in now and things are starting to click . Keep it up mate
