Re: Match Thread v Ebbsfleet United (FA Cup)

It appears that if a player hasn’t played for dowes before or at Salford we have limited contacts ! Ross, Gerring, Parry, Donellan, Edser, Ferdinand, Gray, Poku, Tiehi, Hodges, Hyde, Johnson, Shelton and Loza had never played for Dowse before joining Woking. 14/21. Literally the majority of first t...

Re: Match Thread v Ebbsfleet United (FA Cup)

Collecting my thoughts after that mental ending. Both some real concerns and some pleasing things. First half bereft of any real quality, and I can't really understand how three midfielders who have offensive quality barely put their foot on the ball and passed it. First time we've started without D...

Re: Match Thread v Ebbsfleet United (FA Cup)

Difficult watch this. We've caught them out occasionally when they try and play out from the back, but haven't made the most of it. Meite can trap it further than I can kick it. Couple of decent set pieces that we should be making more of. They've looked more dangerous and have pretty much had the c...

Re: Weekly Dose of Dowse - 18/10/19

David, the point about time wasting was more about why do we take corners and keep the ball in the corner when winning, rather than going for another goal? Is there something wrong with getting a third goal? Dowse after every negative comment “people weren’t commenting about that when we were winni...

Re: Thoughts?

Agree with the last point re timing of the train. I wonder if Hessenthaller hates trains ugh-day? But surely travelling back on the supporter's coach isn't as easy as it sounds? Assume some players live in London (I doubt many actually live in Dover) so would make their own way back from Euston whe...

Re: WFC TV | Barnet 2 - 2 Woking | Match Highlights

I don't think Gerring's gambling, I just think he's right to not be touch-tight. He's slower than the forward and if the ball goes in ahead/behind him, he's liable to get spun, so covering seems more sensible. I also think Gerring does attack it as soon as it comes in (should Parry be cutting the ba...

Re: WFC TV | Barnet 2 - 2 Woking | Match Highlights

Second is far more offensive for me. The first is an easy ball in but you can't realistically expect their forward to beat Rossy at the far post first time - it's almost over his own head - and if he takes a touch then he'd get closed down. The second is criminal though. Somehow we've got both Colli...

Re: Match Thread Barnet (A)

Nine points is a lot - it's three direct wins to losses, and we won more games in August than Aldershot have all season. We're not looking at top at all, and shouldn't be! Agreed that the squad needs a bit of work, but we shouldn't have lost today. Think it's very interesting that we reintroduced M...

Check their forum and they'll be comforting themselves with our last-minute capitulation. Frankly it feels right to look down after our barren run and see our local rivals nine points below us. Nine points? That's not that much. How much are we off top place? Seriously, today showed a lot about our...

Re: Match Thread Barnet (A)

Why can we never see out a game ? Always hanging on from a match winning position! This and Ebsfleet are the only game where we have conceded late on from a game winning position. Torquay still had 10 minutes to go and was just an even game. You’ve just completely made up a narrative so you can com...

Blimey!! Underhill used to be a quite basic ground in the mid-90's. It's rather Spiffy these days. Shows how long I've been out of circulation!!!!
Possibly because it's not Underhill any more - it's The Hive now!

Shelton starting in central midfield, so seems that the internet misled me about him being a wide man. Deserved start for Meite.

How would Wassmer only have cost a couple of hundred quid? Were we not paying him while he wasn’t out on loan? I doubt Leatherhead would have paid his entire wages either.
I don't understand the ins and outs, but I distinctly remember Dowse talking about it late last year in a catch-up.

Re: Shelton signs from Salford

Why did we sign Jake Gray? This year's Wassmer? Does it matter if it isn’t costing us much? I’d be amazed if we’ve sent him out on loan, whilst paying all of his wages. This. It's never been a criticism I've understood. I trust Dowse to identify players to make us better, and when he finds some who...

Internet suggests he's a right-sided midfielder, which could presumably free up Tarpey for a central role if he's playing out there.
