by the last couple of performances by Town.  The reality is that we did not strengthen our team at all in the summer months, all we did was bide our time to see which dregs were still floating about without a club, and then offered them a deal, predominantly because no other clubs came in for them.  You certainly get what you pay for in players and managers alike, and a season of consolidation / survival awaits us.  Very early days , and I certainly back the managers fully, I somehow don't so much blame the management team, as much as the Board by the complete lack of backing the managers seem to have had in the transfer market.  That said, Slade does need to get some better style of play going in the next few games if possible.  We have relatively poor players at the club now, one thing is for sure, they all need to give 100% every game, because what they clearly lack in ability, they need to make up for in effort.  A long season ahead, and a tough one me thinks.

The board appear to have short-changed the manager. God forbid we get involved in another relegation situation as I don't see the fans forgiving the club another stint in the National League.

I totally agree, our support is amazing and 100% loyal, but if we do have a season of bobbing about near the bottom of the table our support will suffer badly at home, and I too don,t think we could survive another spell in the non-league whilst still being a full time professional club.  We need some new blood on the Board that is more forward thinking, sadly there are not many people out there to take the step.

I honestly don't think he's been short changed, he signed 10 new players and got all the backroom staff the last two managers were practically begging for.

He could sign 100 new players but beyond Dembele, do you see anyone that has improved us? Clarke & Dixon are worse than Pearson & Andrew, Kelly is worse than Berrett & Summerfield, Hooper is worse than Yussuf.

I don't think he has improved the squad, but the manager signs the players not the board so how exactly does that mean he's been short changed. Slade decided he wanted Hooper rather than Yussef, Slade decided he wanted Rose rather than Disley etc.

I don't imagine Clarke, Hooper, Kelly or Dixon were bargain bucket wage wise either.

Totally agree, today showed you how much gambling on trialists and signing some have to say very poor players works out in an away trip to a half decent league two team and how no commitment no passion and limited football ability is the end product of our summer recruitment.

Was this season meant to be our big push on this league ? If that excrement today was just that then god help us.
