Aylesbury United Discussion / Season tickets FAO Ken
« on: January 29, 2021, 07:43:23 PM »
FAO Ken - thanks for the offer to spin season tickets over to cover 21-22 season.
However, given that it seems the Gold Club members have continued to pay regardless , i feel it only right to decline your offer and will happily pay for a new season ticket next season. Despite the few games played, i thoroughly enjoyed the season, both on and off the pitch, and feel i got my money's worth.

i post this, not by trying to be a martyr, but in the hope of that others might do the same, and in so doing raise a few more shekels for the club .

From a thoroughly entertaining  0-0 draw against the moaning big time Charlie's of Bedford (we guessed their wage bill must be about 10 times bigger than ours)
the difference being that they looked like a team of good individuals,  but we are a proper team with no stars who just battle for each other.
Just so different to Saturday in so many good ways. Think ben won the tactical battle , playing harry as a withdrawn 9 left their 2 lumps of centre halves with nothing to do and they were often exposed by our little skilful players playing at pace.think wood and riddick sitting in worked a treat as well.
Funny thing is despite their pressure, possession and constant corners in the 2nd half we had by far the best chances throughout the match.
In contrast to saturday we rediscovered our defensive solidity with doubling up, individual battles won, great tackles and superb blocks.
We played more football in the first 10 or 15 minutes than the whole 90 at Biggleswade.
Doc summed it up, thought he was v poor on saturday ,tonight he was motm with a monumental performance
Should hastily add that they played well to a man.bally and j.j. were back to their usual best ,whilst jake had his best game for ages.
Jack and riddick were excellent as a pair of defensive midfielders. Seaton and rudd were really trouble causers with their quickness and trickery.they were big, big losses when they went off.up front harry never stopped and competed manfully.
3 new boys all came on.lad from slough looked like a little boy but whipped a couple of good balls in.the forward from Hitchin looked an interesting prospect, showed a bit of pace and good technique, whilst Jamie is going to be a big plus.just has that bit of class and is such a good passer.
Once again well done Ben and the boys, another great game and another superb performance

Aylesbury United Discussion / Just back from another cracker
« on: October 17, 2020, 08:38:15 PM »
After a few pints of XT4.This season just gets better and better. We haven't had a bad game all season. Have to say Tilbury were the better side, played just like us, but thought individually they were just a bit better ,stronger and quicker.having said that they didnt have the team spirit this lot have.
They dominated the 2nd half and fully deserved their equaliser, but we hung on in there.anthony ball,harry jones and hoppy personified the attitude that they might be better, but we werent going to give in. Doc and jordan also never gave up. First half akintunde and deacon gave them real problems.
4 brilliant penalties, compared to tilbury taking penalties like we did v moneyfields.
Great to be through and having learnt that money
Fair play to tilbury great support and a very good team to watch
A cracking day.well done ben and the boys

Aylesbury United Discussion / Just back, just so predictable
« on: October 06, 2020, 11:04:35 PM »
You know the scenario. Ducks build up a head of steam on the pitch, interest is sparked, regulars big up the quality of the side and how well they're doing, big following goes to local derby
.the result? Yes, you guessed it team fails to turn up, gives its worst performance of the seasonality side and we lose.
About as predictable as night follows day.
So frustrating, especially as Berko seemed to show the exact qualities we have showed in so many games. They seemed to knock us out of our stride and there was very little of the flowing football we've seen.we seemed to panic, looked unsteady at the back and too many long aimless balls.Ben must be as disappointed as he was elated Saturday night
No lack of effort , but if we are going to challenge at the top you have to able to close out a game when you've gone unexpectedly 2-1 up with 10 minutes to go.
Sad to say they had a collective off day with ball Jones and Mot m deacon being the only exceptions.
Ps once again an opposition player was the outstanding player, their number 11 ran us ragged

Aylesbury United Discussion / What an absolute classic
« on: October 03, 2020, 07:53:40 PM »
Wow, just wow.what a game, that one will live long in the memory.just shows what a great product non league football can be. I think everyone will have gone home 'buzzing' ,and rightly so.
Great team performance by the ducks and absolutely outstanding performance by their keeper who pulled off 6 or 7 saves which would have graced the premiership.
Ben must be so proud tonight, they are a proper, proper team.no stars, just everyone working for each other and never knowing when they are beaten

The archetypal AUFC performance. Excellent game, some lovely football, loadscof chances, insufficient conversion rate, stupid goals given away, always make things more difficult than they have to be, superb team effort and committment.
All in all thoroughly entertaining and a pleasure to watch in abysmal conditions.
As usual everyone put a shift in, although I thought Jamie Rudd was outstanding and my motm. Jack wood, riddick and anthony bsll weren't far behind. Sonny was busy and tricky and I thought Jakeput in a great shift
 Special mention for Ty who really put in a shift for the team, did lots of good defensive work  chasing down and tackling
We ripped them apart at times, especially in the 2nd half.should really have had 6 but we failed to convert enough chances and their keeper played a blinder.
Well done lads, really have enjoyed watching us under Ben

From a very heartening performance and good win against a real bogey side of ours  especially having gone 1 down in the first minute.
4 excellent long range belters , and some good quality football made for a good evenings entertainment.
Important win gets the play off push back on track, but most important was the return of the confidence, the swagger and the pizzazz we saw earlier in the season.
Not a bad performance from any of the players, jack wood bottled up Christie, whilst there was a welcome return to form for Ben Seaton who grew in confidence during the game. Defence looked more solid when facing the wind in the 2nd half. Anthony Ball showed why he should never have been dropped, but suffered a bad injury and was replaced by the equally excellent harry jones. Max , sonny and ollie Hogg all returned to their old high levels. And finally a brilliantly judged long shot from jake Bewley to round the night off, even if one or two unkind souls claimed it was a cross that just drifted in!

Well, that was quite an experience, but for totally off field matters.
Firstly the game ,  first time I've seen them for a few weeks and we look like we've gone off the boil, little of the swift crisp passing and we've gone back to looking like a small frail side. Very lacklustre first half, but much improved second, although v.difficult to say that anyone had a really good game.Jack wood did well, but generally Bosworth were bigger better,stronger in every department. They played the referee well, who never recovered from failing to send their centre half off in the first minute, which even the v friendly Bedworth support said was a red card. Good debut from the new lad, who looks useful. we'd have been sighing with relief if we'd got a draw.
Off the field, they've got a nice little ground and set up with catering that's nearly as Good as Kidderminster , and you can't get much higher praise than that.Faggots and mushy peas in a bun were surprisingly good whilst Bedworth Broth was also recomended.unfortunately the pork n stuffing baps ran out before I could get to it.
The final whistle was the main event tho. Father of 1 bedworth centre half was berating his sons defensive partner after the goal and said hed better come and see him afterwards. Said centre half went over to him at the end and very reasonably tried to explain to him what had gone wrong. Father just lost it, said do you think I'm a fecking mug and with that threw a perfect right cross into the centre half left eye. Centre half was left with an absolute stonking instant black eye whilst the father was hustled away. Apparently he's got some sort of previous history as well!
In 50 years of watching footie I've never seen anything like it. I hate to think what might've happened if they'd lost!
Quite a day....

Good day for us yesterday as Bosworth only drew and Yaxley lost at home in a 10 goal thriller.
Despite our recent blip in form it's still in our hands

After a few pints of animals Water Buffalo offering which went down very nicely after an important win. First n foremost I desperately hope doc is ok.such a brave, almost insane ,challenge resulted in a serious neck injury which sees him in smh tonight. Thinking of you doc and hope you're ok. Game ended up with a 5.15 final whistle. Weirdly it seemed like bighleswade were more affected by the injury than the ducks.
We started v well but after max scored an excellent  opener we went to sleep and they split us open time after time before getting their deserved equaliser. Harry came on and played very well and In the second half we were much more fluid and ended up deserved Victor's. Bit like wolves today weve stumbled a little bit  and today was a vital win. Great team spirit and we remain in the play off places. Motm was probably jordan jenkins. Ps apparently ken 'has left the building' presumably he has spent the afternoon trying to find bishops stortford or tamworth on the underground map🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

From another entertaining 0-0 . Definitely a point gained as thame were the better team, but were denied by some desperate, fully committed defending and some brave goalkeping.having said that we had a disallowed goal and their keeper made a flying save of the match and we more than matched them once sonny had Been introduced.
Defence were resolute, midfield hard working but we just look weak up front at the moment. Mot m for me was Ben Seaton who had his best game for ages, possibly of this calendar year.just hope he can regain the form he had a couple of years ago.honourable mention for Harry Jones who played really well and looks increasingly Good at right back

Aylesbury United Discussion / Yaxley
« on: December 15, 2019, 04:37:41 PM »
Classic game of 2 halves.we were inept, almost to haywards heath levels, in the first half  which Yaxley duly capitalised on. Second half was a different story with the introduction of Ball who replaced the ineffectual Nsomi and with Sonny pushed further forward. Hit the post, had a couple cleared off the line, missed a few great chances and their keeper played a blinder. We do need to take our chances, coz its costing us points. Ken was trying to win the game on his own and his selfishness wasnt very helpful. Ben Seaton was quiet again and just isn't the player of 2 seasons ago ,whilst jake overcame a terrible first 30 minutes with several barnstorming runs and a dribble across half the length of the pitch which should see him re christened as twinkle toes!!
Motm for me were the 2 centre backs who were the only ones to have consistently good games, although it was sonny and ball that turned the game. Possibly deserved to win, but given that they beat Brrko last week I will take it as a point gained.
Hope the boys enjoyed their night out.
Ps where were hogg, Rudd and harry?

Pps apparently the Buckinghsm Road auction is this week.i've got everything crossed!
