Re: Gateshead (H) in-game and post game thoughts

New season, same old systematic problems for Dagenham it seems. A characteristically woeful start - whereby they were two goals behind, had survived another two one-on-ones and missed a penalty inside merely half an hour - set the tone for an underwhelming opening day showing that would have resulte...

Re: Gateshead (H) in-game and post game thoughts

The trends from pre-season all alluded to Hare starting in a back three and Rance in midfield. Both of which were of considerable concern to supporters, justifiably in the end. How can you sign two specialised centre halves then bench both to play a right back there instead? Baffling management to s...

Re: Centre back pairing v gateshead

Fulfilling their play-off potential is a non-negotiable necessity for the Daggers this term, a a pre-gelled squad coupled with palatable opening fixtures provifing the perfect platform for us to emulate last season's electric start. The National League of course never works as simply as that especia...

Re: Centre back pairing v gateshead

Also, does anyone know what the latest with Ansu Janneh is? I'm happy to be corrected, but I thought he was under contract for this season too, but don't recall seeing his name in any of the pre-season friendlies? The recent physio update mentioned that Janneh sustained an injury in our first frien...

Re: Injury update..

Balanta's body clearly can't stand up to the physical rigour and intensity of football anymore. This is the third serious injury he's had since the start of last season. Despite him not really suiting our system anymore, I like him and even in his most unproductive season for us just gone he still m...

Re: Orient

Some thoughts/observations from yesterday: - A largely encouraging performance against a higher calibre side who are further along in their preparations with their season commencing next Saturday. - Developing good habits is important in pre-season so it was disappointing to concede twice from set-p...

Re: New Signing Pending

Yeah no minutes for Zouma, Vilhete, Phipps, Saunders, Weston and Balanta although not sure how much you can read into it because McMahon wasn't even there himself. Weston and Balanta did a separate warm-up from the remainder of the team, saw them running laps around the pitch while walking through t...

Re: New Signing Pending

That has to be our recruitment done now I think. Looking at our depth: Keepers - Justham, Strizovic Centre Halves - Johnson, Onariase, Tavares, Longe-King, Zouma Wing Backs - Weston (Both flanks), Vilhete (Left), Ling (Right), Hare (Right), Saunders (Both flanks) Midfielders - Robinson, Mussa, Sagaf...

Re: New Signing Pending

Delighted with this signing, the general consensus being that he's already capable of playing higher with loads of time to improve further still. This was evident at our place when he was very impressive. Seems exactly the mould of player who aligns with thd club's vision, and our determination to g...

Re: New Signing Pending

Yeah that's a fair comment as well, don't mind the odd mid-season signing especially as circumstances can sometimes arise which you don't legislate for, however our manager is definitely more reactive than proactive. We need adequate options or we'll have situations like Chesterfield at home last se...

Re: New Signing Pending

All we need in my opinion is a top defender and central midfielder for this level. We've probably the most settled side in the division in that a core of the group has been together for almost two years now. After all, we had a similarly low-key summer last year with Sam Ling the only first-team sig...

Re: Squad for 22/23

Am envisaging a summer like the last one when we made three signings, of them only Sam Ling really for the first team. Made countless acquisitions throughout the campaign though. McMahon has been the kind of manager who remedies problems as he goes along. Assume all the players yet to agree new deal...

Re: New kit ??

If alternate years pattern continues (to my knowledge we are the only side that does this), then a new home kit is due.
