Chadwell Chatter

Hello everybody.

We have a massive match against Sunderland on Saturday at the Boleyn Ground and we all want to put right the last couple of results.

It's a huge game for us - one that we need to take three points from. There's no point in beating around the bush, we need three points at home, Sunderland need three points as well so I'm sure it will be a good game.

Hopefully the fans will get behind us in their numbers, as they have done all season, and cheer us on to a home win.

The manager has been very vocal with us in that we need to get back to getting the basics right and earning the right to play.

There are no easy games in the Premier League and Saturday will be another difficult one. We need to concentrate on what we're doing in house first, and if we can get that correct, it will go a long way to securing a positive result for us.

Experience counts for a lot in these situations, but you can't get caught up in the media frenzy that surrounds the game. We need to concentrate on ourselves and a lot of it boils down to can anybody who is playing, play better than their opposite number. If you can do so and make less mistakes than they do, you have a great chance of winning the game.

Personally, I want to play football and I hope to be involved on Saturday, I'm not doing that at the moment and the first and foremost thing in my mind is to be involved in the team. If I get the opportunity in the next few games then I'll look to do as well as I can and try to cement a place in the team.

Something else I've been doing recently is coaching the Luton Town Under-15s and I'm enjoying the experience. We didn't play too well in the games I've been on the touchline for, but the good thing is that it has allowed them to see football in a slightly different light.

We've worked on it in training to put that right-  it's giving me a different insight into football and even though I haven't been playing a lot lately, it's making me a better player because you look at the sessions and the coaching differently, and I'm holding on to information more now than I did when I was younger.

It's great to be involved there - they've been fantastic allowing me to go and coach the boys there. I'm really enjoying it.

Pelly Ruddock is on loan there with the first team at the moment too and doing well. They are a proper club and I'm sure with a bit of luck they'll get back in the Football League.

Also this week we had a photoshoot on Thursday with the Club's Official Tailor Apsley. We get a suit from them every year and it's lovely to get them - the boys will be looking dapper!

We'll look even more dapper with three points on Saturday so we hope we can put a smile on everyone's face come 5pm on Saturday.

Come on you Irons!
