It was a friendly played at about 70% of the normal pace with trialists, youth team and first team players in scorching heat. Everybody got to play, a run out and game time, which was mission accomplished. That's why its called pre-season. It was only the second match of the friendlies. It has absolutely no bearing on the quality of the team or how we will be at the start of the season.

Are people really that thick that they think a pre season friendly trialling new players and played in that heat is really an indication of things to come? Embarrassing and shows a distinct lack of football knowledge. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Thought it was a useful run-out. Showed the management that Mo is back on form, Kins' recovery looks on track, we've a couple of handy trialists and some of the new young lads are hungry and skilful. Also revealed some issues - improving defensive shape, more bite needed in midfield, a couple of trialists to move on, etc. It was blazing hot, we're only a week or two into pre-season and the second half changes destroyed our shape. We won first half 3-1 with a recognisable team and drew the second half 4-4 with a right old hotch-potch.

I noticed that hardly anyone seems to have mentioned Mo's hat-trick in the aftermath of the game, whereas there were several posts about Ricky Miller scoring twice for Dover (against similar standard opposition) and how this was a sign of what a brilliant player he is when used correctly.

Pleased for Mo. When on form he is a real asset.
Not sure exactly what happened for the second half of last season, although the fasting and lack of sleep due to baby Mo were mentioned.
Hopefully all will be better this season especially if we don't add to the forward line.

Well done Mo. πŸ‘

If we don’t add to the forward line, we might as well give up now.

I like Mo, he's a good player, but he looked like he was carrying over a stone extra in weight the second half of the season, that's some Fasting... :lol:

Harvey Walker is going to be some player when he is abit older, look at his run for the last goal and the way he took the penalty.

We have a strange squad so far, Phillips & Lokko very good players for us, some meh players and some stinkers!

Only the first half resembled our defence this coming season. They were pretty solid and Boro's goal (and only proper chance) was a stupidly-conceded free kick by Harris that was decently struck and bobbled horribly over Mitch.

Second half was Kodi plus a few trialists (one of whom was absolutely awful*), hardly a basis for judgement on the season ahead.

*I watched the trialists warming up at HT and this guy hardly lifted a knee, last time I saw laziness like that was from Matt Barnes-Homer!
