We really are in trouble. We’ve got no leaders, no passion, can’t defend, can’t score. Maidenhead scored 4 of the easiest goals they’ll score all season.
I really don’t think this squad is up for the fight. Are there 4 teams worse than us in this league? I really don’t think there is.

I suppose it's a nice that Wrexham are doing fellow brotherhood club Orient a massive favour. Keep it up boys , good work indeed. And it's not really like you lot are in with any remote chance of going up yourselves :animatedf:

No thanks to horrid little Daggers though ;) Seriously though, they do look well on course to make the play offs with so many points still up for grabs.

We shouldn't have lost today, we dominated for long periods - The worst thing we did, was we finally took the lead and Dagenham had to got for it more and push higher up the pitch. Subbing off a tired Charlie Lee for Dale Gorman in midfield probably lost us the game, because we lost that protection infront of our backline and Gorman had a stinker of a 15mins.

A draw would've been about right, Dean Brill pulled off 5 very good saves I thought and Dagenham were very, very tough to beat - Have to say their three centre halfs were excellent all game, they dealt with virtually everything that was thrown at them.

Not sure Peter Taylors sitting back style will push them towards the playoffs, the few times Dagenham went forward they were quite dangerous and the move leading to their equaliser was well worked.

Shocked that Maidenhead managed to score four today. Aldershot were poor and I really don't know how Waddock has managed to make such a mess there. Things were only close at the end because of Pentney's continued awfulness in goal - Devonshire really has to draw a line with him somewhere.

As for Barnet - not sure how much longer we can be expected to put up with Still. Getting very tiresome now and I can't see any evidence that he knows how to take the team forward.

You can see why Orient are up there, very dominant in possession and our boys had to put in another shift to get anything out the game. Thought first 10-15 was all us and should have scored but a great save from the chubby Orient keeper. From then on we weren’t really in the game up until the point we equalised, Koroma was a menace all game and was really pleased to see Lee come off as he was running things.

First goal we scored was well worked and we finnslt poked it in, second looked like a deflection but will take it. Few scares after that and a good save from Justham won us the game. Though draw would have been a fair result as we had the better chances but they had the control of the game.

Unbelievable run from us now ur worry about how tired our think squad will be after two games that were pretty much backs to the wall for most of it.

Bring on Barnet.

Well done Wrexham. 5 nil up and apparently dirty Salford with 5(?) bookings and a man sent off.

The only downside to today's result is of course the spending spree The Evil will be going on throughout the whole of January.

I've been worried about Salford the whole time (well, since we won at the Racecourse), maybe it's Wrecsam I should have been focused on after all?

Lol, who am I kidding, Salford are about to spend another million.

Been waiting for this day since that disgusting tinpot shite were confirmed as being promoted last season. They were never coming to our backyard and beating us, it would not be allowed to happen seeing as we are a Proper Club. They comprehensively shat themselves in the FEVER-PITCH Racecourse atmosphere. Said it all season, no Brother will let this Evil come to their own patch and win. Even Chesterfield beat them, as will Orient when they turn up to them.

I don't care if they win the league anyway by spending another £10m on players seeing as we smashed them into 10 million pieces.

Wrexham with a win for world football there.

We dominated Fylde today and but lacked luck and refereeing decisions which would have given us all three points.

Six league games unbeaten with only one goal conceded. Looks like a good time to play Salford as well.

Tollitt is ridiculous, what the hell is he doing in this tinpot league.

Brad Walker though, that lad is just too good and if we don't sign him in January then someone else will. Our no.1 priority should be signing him permanently.

Superb performance. The players put in an excellent performance in front of bumper crowd.
Salford could easily have been down to nine or eight men. Especially one who dived into Grant and I was surprised that the ref didn't pull out the red on that one.

Why they bother with buying every striker under the sun, when they have such a woeful defence, will be anyone guess.
