  1. That's a bonus with all the games being snowed off tomorrow!!!
  2. In real life, there is no relegation from the Essex Senior League and the Essex Olympian Premier is based at step 11 of the pyramid although many of the sides in the EOP could compete in the ESL on the playing side. Essex Olympian teams can apply for promotion to the Essex Senior but many only do this if they have a groundhare with a senior club. Most clubs at Olympian level play on little more than park pitches with no floodlights so have no interest in progressing up the pyramid.
  3. Impressed if you got to Leiston on public transport. Have always managed to get on the team/supporters' coach to that one.
  4. The train line up to Norwich has been a real pain the last few months. Constant engineering works and replacement buses.
  5. Did you go to Lowestoft, Dan? That's a helluva journey from Burgess Hill!!!
  6. Bit of money in the bank though and a half decent crowd. Merstham beating Ebbsfleet really surprised me.
  7. 5/10. Had some good moments but few games will live long in the memory. I was excited about this tournament before it started but lost interest in a lot of games after 20/30 minutes as they were so dull and predictable and was even glad of the days without games!!! The 24 team format killed the group stage and reduced any tension and excitement. It was ridicolous sides who finished third had to wait days until they found out if they were through or not.
  8. 2010 was similar to this Euros. Lots of memorable moments but few quality games (Suarez's handball against Ghana and Gyan missing the penalty, Paraguay missing two penalties against Spain, Lampard's ruled out goal etc)
  9. Easily Portugal v Hungary. Wales v Belgium and France v Ireland but some real dross at this tournament.
  10. Easily the luckiest team to get to a final and they were quite cynical during that tournament from what i remember.
  11. Wouldn't argue with that. Been some great goals and some good moments but few games you can call absolute classics that you'll remember in several years' time. I found with quite a few games I'd start watching and then lose interest after 20 minutes. Few games really got me hooked. There was a lot of matches that teams seemed to be playing for a 0-0 or not to do lose heavily. The fact that 3rd place sides qualified didn't help as teams knew goal difference would be crucial so aimed not to lose heavily when they were a goal down instead of going for the equaliser. Don't think this was the worst tournament I've witnessed. Euro 92 was pretty dire and because England did well in both Italia 90 and Euro 96, we tend to forget both tournaments were not that great. I'd say World cup 2010 was the worst. Average at best.
  12. I was getting the same issue with my game with Godmanchester Rovers and Windsor. On their profile it said they were in a different league when in fact they were in the correct league. I holidayed a month or two to check for any issues but everything was fine. Only slight problem is that, these teams didn't have a media prediction at the start of the season which isn't really an issue.
  13. Cheers Dan. We're in a bit of a rut of results after having a fantastic run in which we went top after winning 7 in a row. Our disciplinary record is dreadful and we're missing several key players due to suspensions which isn't helping our form. Scoring a few but we look shaky at the back although we have a decent keeper in Conor Gough. Good result for Burgess Hill against Merstham at the weekend. BH seem to be holding their own after coming up last season. Will be interesting to see where the two sides are come April.
  14. I don't think the game was supposed to go lower than level 8 possibly even level 7. Good win for Burgess Hill today, Dan. We started well with the wind in our favour but you looked the better side once you equalised. Second half, there was only one side in it. Nice set up at Burgess Hill. Cosy little clubhouse and a tidy compact ground.
  15. Cheers Dan. Most our support who are on the coach will probably be in The Windmill so expect I'll go there pre match after a quick pint in town.
