Review from Daggers Fanzine ... eaten-run/?

Finally out of the relegation zone, the trip to MK Dons seemed decidedly less imposing. They went into the game on a 6-game winless run, but one look at their teamsheet soon spelt out just how hard a task this would be. Boasting a superb strike-force of Baldock, Guy and Easter with the 62-cap Dietmar Hamann in midfield, this was never going to be easy.

In truth, we never got out of the blocks. MK were happy to keep the ball and made sporadic attempts to get in behind the defence, mainly with the offside flag denying them. Chadwick shot at Roberts but the Daggers keeper was largely untroubled until minutes before the break. Chadwick’s deflected shot luckily fell straight into Guy’s path and Roberts was forced out to narrow the angle. The forward touched the ball away from goal and Roberts was too eager to dive in, giving fellow Welshman Easter the chance to score from the spot. Thankfully for us, he hit the outside of the post to leave it level at the break.

Just after half-time, Lewis was introduced for Tomlin to stem the tide but this only had the effect of leaving Savage ever-more isolated. With MK sensing the initiative was theirs, Baldock was introduced and immediately marked his return from injury. Balanta played it through a square back-line and he was onto it in a flash, cleverly giving Roberts the eyes before slotting the ball home.

Within minutes the game was up, Balanta’s corner headed back by Hamann, and Doumbe was on hand to head home. Roberts was stranded in no-man’s land with McCrory blocking his path but there was no challenge on the big Frenchman anyway. Nurse came on for Savage but he found similar problems up top on his own, only Scannell giving support albeit with disappointing results. The only real test for home keeper Martin was Green’s drive from distance which he pushed away after a deflection.

The loss in roundabout city has brought us back down with a bump after a series of good performances. Whilst disappointing, this kind of patchy form is to be expected given our steep learning curve. It is difficult to understand how we went from the all-action energetic displays against Colchester and Swindon to the flat and lifeless fare on Saturday, but we just couldn’t get any possession and the team became strung out leaving far too many gaps. You have to give MK credit for the amount of players they got forward, leaving us with no option but to clear the ball aimlessly and not allowing us to get players up to support.

Looks like a good fanzine seen some good one's over the years sometimes better than the official programme's or club endorsed stuff.

Good to read an accurate oppositions point of view, well done to the writer.
