The Boreham saga sounds 100% like a chairman trying to maximise the money by using social media to advertise a player being available and the current bid to get other clubs interested. If I understand this correctly we have made a bid that triggers his release clause and they have to allow us to speak to him don’t they? They have turned down our offer which for me IS a breach of contract. If they wanted more than £35k then they should have made his contract with a bigger amount!!

I don’t blame the Boreham chairman at all for using this tactic. Funny bit is we play them in a friendly next week!
Final thoughts. Against QPR King was spilling stuff all over in the warm ups and was relatively quiet. This week he was sharp in warm ups and you could hear him from one end of the pitch to the other. That was more like the player he is rated as. Almost as big a boot as Long and just as good at 1v1s.

Now the not so good: Thomas was a mess. Wagstaff a bit meh. Some good runs but a lot of weak. Soares must now be bottom of the CM pile. Deji owes half his team mates a pint for stitching them up with piss poor passing. We don’t have strength at left back. We are short another striker of the Appiah type (Taylor would have a field day working off Hanson). We missed several pretty straight forward chances.

Positives from today: Watson better and he and Sibbick give is good options. Trotter and Hartigan were an excellent partnership and Wordsworth looked good. Pinnock as others have said is a real find. Appiah and Pigott work well together. Pigott looks like he could work with anyone. Hanson I felt did exactly what a big CF should. Won all bar one of headers, the flick ons will feed others, good layoffs with various parts of body, yes he’s not quick and won’t score many with his feet but will set up others and if Pinnock keeps putting it in the area like that Hanson could hit double figures with headers. Generally the angles and work off the ball was good.

Who is Simon Bass? "Should of" instead of "should have"! At least our club statements are well written without basic errors. Of course the question is why did Morgan Ferrer choose not to go to Tranmere? He's not a slave so it's his call. In the context of the statement made by Boreham Wood we could be construed to be the bad guys.

A very enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. First half, excellent - Pinnock gives us another option and Trotter great. Clearly moving Deji left and Pinnock onto other side made us less strong in second half. It will be interesting to see how our first half team does against a gnarly load of League One booters but certainly promising. Went with two Brighton fans today who were hugely impressed (and surprised) by our football, sharpness. Deji stood out a mile to them as our real quality player.

It was more difficult to assess Wordsworth as he had to try and make the midfield tick with Soares alongside him, whereas Trotter and Hartigan seemed to be on the same wavelength from the off.

Well I thought we were very good in the first half . Played very patiently and kept the ball on the deck really well. Everyone was really good on the ball and Hartigan really is a lovely player. Watson did very well against March , Trotter looked very comfortable on the ball . Pinnock looks the Best Buy so far by a long way and Deji was fantastic. Piggy’s first touch let him down at times but he looks stronger and a little better in the air. Appiah messed up when in on goal but he got his goal in the end. Hanson will give us that muscle we need up front but I thought we looked better with piggy and Appiah because we played more football and were less inclined to hoof it .

Can’t believe I just said that
Thought Trotter was outstanding today. Formed a very good CM with Hartigan and was effective ALL over the pitch. Also very impressed with Pinnock but he was far better on the left (1st half) than the right (2nd half). We had a very good shape in the 1st 45 minutes but not so in the 2nd half.

Enjoyed the game and hopeful for the new season
Was talking about that earlier. His new agent may be a prat, but his previous one seems most ineffectual – whoever heard before of a release clause that can be 'inactivated' by the club failing to agree to part of it?

How do you quantify team bonding? Once it would have been by pints drunk. Now maybe by tweets posted that tagged a team mate.

Interesting, sorry if AR
Oh yes, as DonWorn said, Watson was very good. Had their no 20 in his pocket. All in all, I think we'll end up with amore cohesive unit than last year. One well-informed person told me that the team bonding during the trip to Wales had exceeded expectations.

Some fine performances all round today. Starting back four very solid, though they have a really quick guy who, with the right pass, was able to get through on goal 2-3 times. Starting MF - Waggy right, Mitch left and Hartigan and Trotter centrally were REALLY good in the 1st half. AH's football brain a cut above all other MFs. They knew where to be for a pass when we had the ball, and then how to shape up defensively. Joe and Kwesi looked good together. 2H - Hanson great in the air, not just heading on, but chesting on to Barch on the left wing. JH had a fine shot well save by the BHA keeper too. Wordsworth looked very decnt too. Poor Terrel got a shit pass from King which led to the pen. It rattled him slightly but he settled as the match came to a close. Encouraging stuff.

Sadly, no increase in quality from Tom Soares. Caught on the wrong side of his man numerous times.
Agree with comments about Pinnock. He really is looking like he could be a real find by NA.

Pinnock & Watson impressive. Trotter about 2 stone lighter. Spares still pointing and doing sod all else. Decent display all in all. Hanson will make a nuisance of himself and Pigott works hard.

One or perhaps both of Pinnock and Pig will have a stellar season.

DO. Hanson looked as though he will be good in the air and average on the ground. He could well link up with someone like Kwesi to make an impressive partnership. Hartigan looked assured today and I like Pinnock more every time I see him.

Trebor: Just browsing the B&H matchthread and noticed this comment "AFC Wimbledon very much built in the style of the old Crazy Gang." I realise this is the sort of comment that comes up time and time again (even if it's not true) but it just 'might' suggest that KISS was the order of the day.

Or then again it might not.
We beat Watford playing a style that was obviously not going to translate well to League 1. Did we keep it KISS again today?
