View from the Green Army

What a difference 48 hours makes for Rocks fans.


On Saturday Twitter was in meltdown at the FA Cup loss at Billericay with a controversial goal direct from a throw-in.


Billericay fans ridiculed the goal, Rocks fans slammed it as cheating but its certain that if this was Bognor progressing via the same means our fans would revel in it.


Fast forward to Monday and we travel home from Kingstonian buoyant after a 2-1 victory. Granger (who received a lot of flack after Billericay) pulled off some superb saves. Jimmy Wild — who has split opinion amongst the Green Army — got a well deserved goal.


His endeavour was spectacular and he’d have been MOM if it wasn’t for Ollie Pearce. Wild has tried hard but only managed one goal vs Guildford in the FA Cup. Some fans have expected to much from a raw talent who has an obvious knack of scoring in the SCFL.


At Kingstonian Wild got a slice of luck after K’s keeper Rob Tolfrey, who jumped into the crowd to punch a Bognor fan two seasons ago, spilled the ball allowing him to slot home to put the Rocks 1-0 up.


So we’re out of the cup, but sit fourth in the league, something we’d have taken with the squad changes we’ve experienced. The squad look settled. Some of the ability we’ve lost may have weakened us, but looking at Leicester last season, sometimes a team can out-do individuals. We go again at home to Tonbridge Angels, doing well in the league, who destroyed us last season 5-0. Kick off 3pm at the Nye Camp.
