Harrow Borough (home)   Message 50155Mon, 11 November 2019 15:37  

Farnborough host Harrow Borough on Saturday.

Harrow are 11th on 19 points (Form in the league is LWDLL)
Boro are 12th on 19 points as well (Form in the league is LWDWL)

Previous results

Farnborough 4-1 Harrow (Feb 2019)
Harrow 5-0 Farnborough (Dec 2018)
Farnborough 2-1 Harrow (Dec 2015)
Harrow 3-1 Farnborough (Oct 2015)

Almost identical to Harrow, so this may be a difficult game, however, if things go our way perfectly, then we could be pushed up to ninth.

What is your prediction for the game?

Huge turnout today to say goodbye to a great friend of the Boro.

The Chapel was full to the rafters, and standing room only.
Trust Ginger to make the comment " We need a good steward here!"
I bet Chris would laugh at that!!

Great sight with Boro and Chelsea shirts everywhere, and the coffin covered in a Boro flag with P.R.E printed on it, nice touch

Good to see some old faces, Jim Wigmore and Nic Ciardini, making it as well.

A good farewell to the Big Man.

Keep em in order up there Chris!!

More trouble down the road at Blazingsmoke.   Message 49303Tue, 30 July 2019 21:51  

One of the new club's directors has gone public about concerns they are being royally shafted by Raffi who really was just using the club as a trojan horse to develop the land at the Camrose where the profits generated will dwarf any money he put in to the club over the years... Money that was also no-doubt cleverly accounted for so was written-off against tax elsewhere for him:

Things are looking bleak for survival to the end of this season, let alone the longer term future :(

D Day celebrations   Message 49174Thu, 06 June 2019 18:36  

Like many of us, I have been absolutely riveted to the coverage of the celebrations, and the wonderful stories of the brave, and very humble, servicemen and women that served us all so well!!

Yes I shed a tear with them, and felt so very proud of all they did to ensure we could have the lifestyle we have today.
Their tomorrow for our today, has never felt so true.

We whinge and moan about a bad loss at sport, we berate Match Officials, Managers, Coaches Players, League Officials and the F.A.
We argue amongst ourselves over decisions and rulings.
We never see the oppositions point of view.

We curse when our boss gets on to us.
We row with our families and kids, and we worry about money, welfare, and all that life throws at us, and so many other problems in the modern world.

NOW, just watch, listen, and understand, what these wonderful people went through JUST to have the opportunity to allow us to do all those things, rightly or wrongly, THINK AGAIN!!!, and be grateful that we have the freedom to do it!!

THINK WE ARE HAVING A BAD TIME?? WE AIN'T!!!!

WE SHOULD ALL RAISE A GLASS TO NIGHT AND SAY GOD BLESS THEM ALL!!

League constitution   Message 49147Wed, 15 May 2019 09:34  

From the Istmian League website. Nothing as yet posted about this on the Southern League website.

"The season is barely over, and already you've been inundating us with messages about when the new one will start! Well here are a few dates for your diaries.

First and foremost, on Sunday 19th May we will find out our constitution for the forthcoming season. The FA have taken the unusual step of announcing this via the marvellous Non League Paper, so get out and grab a copy on Sunday morning to find out who has been placed in which league.

Of course, the NLP will be bringing you the constitution for the entire country, but if you just want to know who is in the Bostik League we'll bring you that news here on Sunday morning- hopefully in time for it to go out in our weekly round up email at 9AM!

Next, when will the new fixtures be released? We have to be guided by the FA on that, but the answer is 'Mid-July.' Once we have a firm date, we'll share it and you can set your alarm to find out whether you'll get an early trip to the seaside and a Christmas derby.

Finally, the start date for the new season is August 10th- however that date comes with a caveat. Our Premier Division will kick off on 10th, all other three Divisions a week later on 17th. The reason for this is that the 10th is the date of the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round- any of our Step Four clubs who don't feature in this may be able to kick off their League Cup campaigns if they wish!

So we'll see you back here on Sunday morning- bright and early!"

A tale of two seasons   Message 49083Wed, 24 April 2019 11:18  

We have played 87 games since returning to the Premier level.

The first season and a half, 66 games, saw constant changes of playing personnel, no continuity and chaotic performances ranging from occasionally being pretty good to often being embarrassingly poor. This has cost the Club money - many gave up as it seemed there would be no end to the instability.

But what a change there has been since we finally assembled a skilful and hard working group of players that, crucially, have matured into an effective and coherent squad.

Compare and contrast these stats:-

2017/18 and 2018/2019 (first 20 games)

66 Games
22 Won
8 Drawn
36 Lost
74 Points
1.1 Points/game

115 Goals for
168 Goals against
-53 Goal difference

2018/19 (last 21 games)

21 Games
11 Won
6 Drawn
4 Lost
39 Points
1.9 Points/game

39 Goals for
21 Goals against
+18 Goal difference

To extrapolate these numbers to the 41 games played to date in the current season ...

With the various old squads, we'd be in 20th place on 46 points with a -33 goal difference. We would be relying on winning at Weymouth and Walton losing at Merthyr on Saturday to avoid relegation.

With the current squad we'd be in 5th place on 76 points with a +35 goal difference. So, in the play offs!

--------------------

While it's a shame that it took so long, we are back on the right track. A big thanks to all - on the pitch and off - who have made this happen.

Let's test Weymouth to the utmost this Saturday, have a good break and return in July with the same commitment and focus that has been on show since last December. C'mon the Boro'!
