Bushey Hawks 1 v 0 Eagles

The Magnificent 7...................nearly !!

A depleted Eagles side battled hard at Bushey on sunday, but were undone by a late free kick. With only 7 players available it was always going to be hard work. The lads battled hard in the first half with both teams reduced to long range efforts that never really troubled either keeper. Adam, brave as ever came out to an oncoming Bushey foward and took the ball well also taking a bang to the head....in typical Adam fashion he just shook his head and carried on.

The second half was a bit more on the back foot , the lads starting to wilt , with no subs to bring on. Bushey get a free kick just outside the area...the assistant manager's screams of "make a wall" fall on deaf ears and we stand back and let them crack the ball into the corner.......back to the listening thing again...The game ends up 1-0
With the Bushey manager admitting we deserved a draw....if he had taken the bung i offered him we would have been ok!!

Pinnacle 5 v 2 Eagles

Luke (2)

A Game of 2 halves !

After last weeks impressive opening league game against Harvesters, it was a very different performance against a physical Pinnacle side.
After having to change pitches due to a large concrete block found in one goal area, and then having to play on a big heavy pitch with very long grass with a typical home referee it was always going to be difficult.(thats all my excuses out of the way).

The 1st half came and went but we seemed to be still asleep, going in at 4-0 down, including a very unfortunate own goal.
2nd half and a quick goal from a corner where again we seem to be afraid to head the ball, and leaving the Pinnacle forward with an easy tap into the goal.
Then as soon as we go 5-0 down , we win a corner (where a loud voice in the crowd informs the players that if we score from it with a headed goal then the player will receive #5) Unbelievably a floated ball from Taylor finds Luke's head and he flicks it into the bottom corner with his HEAD. Much merriment amongst the away fans. Not from James !!!
Soon it is 5-2 with an impressive run and finish from Luke (no money earned on this one). Now we are awake and up the tempo by using both wingers with excellent effect but unfortunately no more goals.
We could have had more but with lack of passing and a very biased referee the game ends with a very flattering scoreline.

We didnt help ourselves today with a very poor 1st half performance, but the frustrating thing is we know we can play well, as we showed in the 2nd half today and for the whole game last week. We must realise the game lasts 40 minutes and in this league we are up against much better teams than last season.
So come on, we know we are good so lets show them how good !!!

Eagles 1 v 0 Harvesters South

Taylor

The Eagles are flying !

The 1st league game of the season, in a league that I believe is one above where we should be .After the last 2 weeks of being 1-0 up and losing 2-1, we change the formation to a 2-3-1. (well that was the plan anyway).
As of the last few weeks we completely dominate the 1st half, with the Harvesters only troubling us on 1 or 2 occasions.
The goal that came was a Trundle special. Luke scampering through the Harvesters mid-field is crudely brought down mid way between half way and the goal area. Up steps Taylor and hammers a Trundlesque free kick into the top corner 1-0.
We have plenty more chances to increase our lead but still the 2nd goal alludes us.

Then the dreaded half time break, and us playing up the slope. BUT whats this ? a different Eagles from the last few weeks come out in the 2nd half, carrying on from the great 1st half and continuing where we left off.
A very well controlled 2nd half where every single player is exceptional and working hard for each other and giving 100% commitment and endeavour. It would be very difficult to single one player out on todays performance but i must give a special mention to Stephen who covered every blade of grass in making his league debut for the Eagles.
Well Done !


An absolutely brilliant performance today lads, all we need to do now is improve our attitude and work rate in training and we might have a good season.

Challenge Cup Eagles 1 v 2 Sun Postal Yellow

Luke

A Game of 2 halves !

After last weeks disappointing defeat to the Hawks in a friendly, this was a great chance to beat a team in a league above us.
The 1st half was all one way traffic as the Eagles were virtually camped in the Sun Postal half, and half way through the half we got the goal we deserved. A great run from Luke on the right hand side and a sublime finish into the back of the net.
Chance after chance fell to us , but at half time we are only 1-0 up but could be 4 or 5 as our performance deserved.
Then unfortunately after half time we seem to fall asleep,( can we please ban the half time break and play 40 mins straight through) and Sun Postal get 2 goals in the 1st 10 mins.
This seems to wake us up, but good goalkeeping, and great defending keep the Sun Postal goal intact, and a defeat we really did not deserve.

This season so far we seem to be a one half team, where we play excellent for one half and then switch off in the 2nd.
But it will come , and we will soon start beating the good teams in our league.

Croxley Guild Panthers  5  v  1  Eagles

Ross Jackson

 

After a great prformance last week the lads were a bit subdued this week, maybe thinking about previous results against Croxley.The first half we never really got going, showing our apponents far to much respect and never threatening their goal coming in 3-0 down at half time.The second half we started slowly and conceded another 2 goals which seemed to kick start our game.Taylor had 3 good efforts on goal and we then started to press Croxley back.Ross chased a long ball down which forced the keeper into a mistake and he put the ball in the back of the net. Maybe a little more belief from the start and we could have made it a much closer result. If Bryan could choose his games to miss a bit better, it would be much appreciated by the deflated asistant manager who went straight to the Royal Oak to drown his sorrows.

Nascot Wood Eagles    3   v    1   Sun Postal Blue

Luke Verlander (2)

Joe Plant

 

Three games into the season and 3 wins.  This was an all round excellent performance from the Eagles, playing good passing football from the start.

After Wednesday's poor performance, a much improved display was called for and we weren't to be disappointed. Maybe the training sessions are paying off.

 

The 1st half and intricate passing and substainable pressure but no goals.

2nd half and more of the same, 1st goal came from good work from Stephen in the area, battling with 2 defenders the ball fell to Luke who pounced on the loose ball to find the net off the crossbar to make it 1-0.

 

The second was not long following, from one of Taylor's inswinging corners the ball hit a defender rebounded off Luke's bottom and across the line, 2-0

 

The 3rd came after a good flowing move. Luke scampering down the wing, beats 2 players and puts in a great cross to find Ross, who gets tackled by the impressive centre back, the balls comes out and Joe hammers it with his left foot and its 3 nil.

 

Its looking like 3 games and 3 clean sheets, but a dreadful mistake in defence allows Sun Postal get a consolation.

On this performance the Eagles will be a hard team to  beat, and it was so good to see that our training sessions are actually producing good performances.

Well done !!

Wednesday 20th September    Evergreen Colts 0 v 2  Eagles Taylor Cobb 
 
A goal in each half from Taylor was enough for the Eagles to take another 3 points , and more importantly another clean sheet.
There isn't a lot to say about this game apart from the goals and a very late save from Calum who dived to his right at full stretch and turned the ball around the post. The only shot that Evergreen had throughout the game.

Sunday 17th September   Abbots youth Red 0 v 3 Eagles 
Calum Tocher
Luke Verlander
Ross Jackson
 
More points than Watford
 
We start the new season how we finished the last, an away game to Abbots Youth, on a very warm day.
 
The 1st attack doesnt take long and with Joe finding himself room in the area cracks a rip-roaring volley in which the goal keeper makes a great save, the rebound falls to Luke who hits it inches over the bar.
We then have a corner, taken by Trundle (sorry Taylor), straight at the keeper who makes another  great save but this time, following in is Calum who calmy volleys the ball into the top corner. 1-0
The Eagles play some good football, Luke has one of his dazzling runs and is brought down 6 yards out of the area. He picks himself up, dusts himself down , and with a free kick Beckham would have been proud of curls the ball into the top of the net, this time the poor keeper didn't have a sniff.
Half time 2-0
2nd half and the game gets scrappy, with the Eagles defending too deep , but still having total control of the game.
With just seconds remaining the Eagles seal the result with a 3rd goal.
For once Calum decides not to shoot from distance but goes on a magical run that is brought to an end by a crunching hit from the defender (who manages to come off 2nd best again), the balls comes out to Ross who makes no mistake. 3-0
 
Considering we have only had one training session this was an excellent start to the season. Every single player played well. keep it going !!
