in terms of crowds and resources there is most definitely a top 6 - the average crowds, for example, are more or less double those of the 7th best team. So ,how have they done so far?
SARFEND - always thought they would struggle and so far I've been right - 13 points dropped and haven't won either of the games they've played against fellow big 6 sides
STOCKPORT - 10 points dropped , but have got 4 points out of 6 in their 2 big games
WREXHAM - surprised they've dropped 9 points already , and worryingly for them haven't won in their 3 games against the big 6
NOTTS COUNTY - only dropped 6 points, but only had 1 hard game so far
CHESTERFIELD - have had a very easy first few games, not played anyone terribly threatening but have still dropped 4 points
GY - got 4 points out of 6 against Stockport and wrexham, and that draw against the former are the only points we've dropped so far

Wrexham aren’t going anywhere. They’ll have sacked Phil Parkinson by Christmas.

That's my only slight concern about Wrexham.
Getting rid of him, who clearly isn't up to the job already (thought a strange appointment when it happened, considering the money being thrown)
And being replaced with someone that's up to the job

We want him to be bad but not so bad he gets the sack.


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.

No surprises that we've done alright against the better teams so far. I always feel that our achilles heel is the lower teams.

Hopefully it’ll be too late to catch us by then.

It was an odd appointment, and I think if things go badly over the next three or four games then that might be enough to see him out the door. I’m contrast to Town who looked incredibly united, they didn’t look like a proper team -   petulant and cynical. It’s understandable too, if the bloke sat on the desk next to you or in the same van got paid 5x as much to do the same job, that’s not going to do wonders for harmony in the workplace is it?

Out of interest, who was the last manager with no prior non-league experience to win promotion from the national league?


A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner.

only team i can think of who are decent and will threaten is bromley, otherwise their games have been against very unfancied sides

Been thinking about Wrexham the last few days and come to the conclusion that their problem lies in the fact nobody likes a flash cúnt. Most people would be happy to see them so well after their recent history, they’ve always seemed a decent club and fans,  but their new owners have turned up and just treated the whole thing as a massive písstake. That’s why people dislike them and why teams will raise their game against them all season.

I get the big six thing but I commented elsewhere that Boreham Wood and Chesterfield are tight defensively and I think that will go a long way in this league. Dagenham score lots but let lots in as well, when they play Chesterfield, Boreham Wood or us it will be interesting to see how they do.

The thing that struck me last night (I listened on the radio) was how easy it was for Town for long periods of the game. I expected to be curled up in a ball wishing for the final whistle but that just wasn't the case.

I am genuinely beginning to think that we are the real deal.


40+ years of black and white striped misery.
