Re: FA Cup - Home to Poole Town

Another great day out supporting this team.
I have to say it had a atmosphere before the game a little bit like a play off final . There was hundreds of new supporters today wearing Tooting scarfs. Away vocal support ,it was a real cup tie. Congratulations to everyone who has been promoting the club on social media and to our brilliant two managers for giving us a team worth getting behind.
Although the result hurts, I could not be more proud of the team. Every current Tooting player will run through brick walls for each other and the club. I love a team that looks out for each other and after the nasty tackle every out field player went toe to toe with the opposition. It looked like Zac was playing with a broken rib in the second half. He had to keep spraying it in the second half and looked like he was in a lot of pain. This really proves the commitment of our boys.
I was disappointed that we had to make so many changes at half time. I fancied George to push on in the second half and Danny B maybe scoring a couple of goals. George was a bit deep in the first half, I did think at half time that we had them. We started to pass the ball as we know we can do after the sending off.  I am looking forward to watching us play three up front instead of having a CAM.  when we played Reading and Carshalton in pre-season they could not live with us. Does anyone know what has happened to Sham and Junior? They both blew me away pre-season with their talent. I still have not got over the fact that we have Dean Hamlin back. I think this is going to be a great season.
I think we lost today to a better team  who was bigger and better at finishing then us and I wish Poole FC all the best for this season.

Re: FA Cup - Home to Poole Town

Yes we lost to a better team today but not just because they were "bigger and better at finishing than us" although in my opinion our forwards did not ask enough of , what I was told was a sixteen year old keeper, they were a better organised team the passing was crisper and even when they went down to ten men, they reverted to five at the back with four in the middle and just one up front basically saying, come on then break us down which of course we were just not capable of doing.
I feel this was not one of our best performances this season, we just came up against a team who were at the top of their game and certainly the best we have met this season and we were below par, no shame in that.
No shame in losing to a better team either, better Poole than Dorking, I would have liked to have journeyed further but it just was not to be! congratulations to them I say and hope you progress further.

Re: FA Cup - Home to Poole Town

First game of this season for me and was impressed with the teams committment throughout. Pity we couldn’t take some of the goalmouth chances particularly in the second half . With Westfield losing yesterday all to play for in forthcoming league games !!!

Re: FA Cup - Home to Poole Town

I'm gutted about this one. I didn't go to the game but when I saw that they had a guy sent off I thought it was a great chance to pull off an upset. I think we'll look back and see this as a missed opportunity.

But at the same time it sounds like we played pretty well which bodes well for the rest of the season.
