I seem to remember the Hurst out banner on the fly over, a few weeks before we achieved promotion. Things can turn fairly quickly.

After reading that - i think we would all be wise to give him time as it sounds like once the players get it right on the field as to what he wants, we will all see that patience pays off.
We have a few games to grasp it before next season - lets hope  that exciting football is around the corner, as its clear that MB wants to be a winner.

Rarely is instant success achieved. Non of the players Marcus has brought in have league experience, and probably more will arrive in the summer, so unlikely to be instant hits. However, his philosophy and skill seems to be developing players and in this respect he has a good record. Can he do that under pressure from fans hungry for success? That is the question. I think most fans can see potential in all these players, so we may have to live with another season of uncertainty before assessing whether the plan is working. This may be a two or three year project. Some will not like and want results earlier but if you are building something you cannot stop at the foundation stage. It may be helpful if Marcus and the club clarify what the project looks like, what we are trying to build and in what time scale so expectations are realistic.

Quoted from The Old Codger


Read it again this morning, he seems like a man with a plan. There was a 10 minute spell yesterday when the movement off the ball was quite sublime.



And that was with 2 CMs in wide positions, if we can develop Bolarinwa's game or sign 2 wide players with decent 1st touches and the ability to get the ball into the box we will be on track I reckon.

We have the makings of a good squad and for the first time in ages after the sale of Omar no doubt still some funds to add to it in the summer, add to that a manager who knows how to build things actually that's not a bad scenario for a club that has just come up after 6 years in tin pot.  

Clearly a lot of work to do on firstly retaining the quality that's out of contract, engineering departures and adding the right talent but I am sure Marcus, Mickey and Gary Whilde have a plan for that as wel and will have already started on it..

Take the last 4 seasons we have been in a league where Newport, Mansfield, Cambridge, Luton, Barnet, Brizzle, Cheltenham and ourselves have come up Brizzle have progressed with a bucket of Arab money but the rest are still in L2. Luton could go up Newport are doomed and Cheltenham still need to be careful so I reckon that proves unless something substantial changes at your club it takes a few seasons to come up and become truly competitive.

Ultimately MB will achieve success if the board and the fans back him in the way he wants. This unrealistic attitude of expecting us to win every week needs to be dampened down by understanding how far the club had fallen behind off the field as well as on it.


He might not. I don't think anyone expects us to win every week, I just think there is some concern over the performances. I'm not convinced he will be a success.

I can understand that headingly, which is where oldun makes a very good point. Mb could do himself a lot of good by explaining his plan and what he is trying to achieve and how he's going about it

Understand you HM - I just think that there are many who are 'over expecting'. We just got out of the morass that is the Conference, Cheltenham cruised out and are now fighting relegation - we ought to be thankful that isn't us.

When we first appointed Alan Buckley his  first season was average,

Then we took off and ended up in the now championship,

I feel under Marcus we just might see the same,

If we all only had a little patience .

Thanks posting, it's an interesting read despite one of the worst openers I have ever read!

THESE days, Karen Carney is an international star of women’s football, capped more than 100 times for England with more trophies than a branch of Timpsons.
