With the big showdown at GGL last week decided in favour of the good guys, we knew that one more win would all but give us the title going into the last weekend as our goal difference is far better than
Gravesend Ebbsfleet's. But there was still that elephant in the room. Albeit, a rather quiet one. The points deduction from the St Albans game. We still had no news on how that would go.

It's been a funny old season. Back in early November, we'd just lost to bloody HandY at home (again, one nil, only shot on goal) and found ourselves sitting 12th in the table, some 14 points behind the leaders Ebbsfleet. At that point, it looked like a serious effort would be needed just to make the play-off spots. We weren't playing badly, just lacking consistency. Title challengers? Er, no. Since then? Well, we've improved a bit to be honest.

Thank you very much Dukey for the kind hand-over from the previous blog! Determining on tonight’s result this could very well be the last time I write for Gandermonium. You readers may remember me writing in the Weston-super-Mare entry that Natalie labelled me a “bop” because each time I have written for this lot, doing the games against Bath City and Weston-super-Mare, we drew both of them.

Wow, you have to go a long long way back to find a time when
Gravesend Ebbsfleet weren't top of the league (middle of September apparently). But for forty fives minutes on Saturday, it was the mighty Sutton that ascended that very summit to bask briefly in all its glory. Of course, win against Stortford on Monday night and we're top again, but for a little longer. While on Saturday it seemed that it didn't matter.

So, here we are. Super Duper Amazeo-massive clash number 1 of the Conference South title run in. Maidstone away. El Plastico pt2 if you will. And they don't really come a lot bigger than this at our level. 2nd v 3rd. We're unbeaten in 20. They've got one of the best home records in the league. 2200+ average crowds. Fuckin' Ada, if that sort of thing doesn't give you a full on football chubby, then nowt will. Unless you're dead of course. Or maybe a woman. Ok, so maybe I've not thought this one through properly. Sue me.

So, as we head into the final month of the season, we are faced with the real possibility of having a shot at the title. We wouldn't have considered the prospect a mere couple of months ago. But with
Gravesend Ebbsfleet slipping up more times than a drunk man on ice, they have left the door open not just for us but for Maidstone also.
