Hi guys,

With that victory at Cheltenham last night you are now just 3 points off the play-offs but is that hiding the nature of the performances this season?  Sam Barrick, our resident GTFC season ticket holder is not happy and here is why http://d3d4football.com/grim-times-for-the-mariners-by-sam-barrick/

Has last nights win changed anyone's views? thoughts?

Points wise we are where we would expect to be. The level of performance more noticeably at home is concerning, if we can address that then the attendances will slowly rise again.

If you read the forum, you can answer your own questions.

I appreciate that you’ve created an independent media outlet for League 1 and 2, however, every time you advertise your site you’re asking about/for negativity.

He makes valid points but the reality is that we're probably mid-table in terms of budget and that will probably be reflected in we do/can achieve. I'm a ST holder too and whilst Saturday wasn't great, we looked pretty good in the 1st half and OK till we missed the penalty when we went flat and it's often easier to remember the last 30 minutes than the first hour.

Reality is that, after 6 years of non-league, pragmatic football is OK so long as you can see improvements. The big positives for me are how the midfield are improving - the negatives are the strikers that Slade has signed. It is a Work In Progress which is what you would expect with a new squad however 7 of last night's 11 were here last season.

I think TOC has it right interesting to see the form of Summerfield and Berret this term who are unrecognisable versus last term. Once all the lads are settled and maybe we have a half decent Jan window in terms of in's and outs we may have a good end of season which at the very least will give us something to build on in 18/19?

My message to Sam would be that he's forgetting the football under Hurst wasn't great either.

If he wants to go watch lovely, easy on the eye football he'll have to go somewhere else. Perhaps he can try one of the 13 sides sat below us in the league this season.

I enjoy winning matches more than how we play, it's nice to play well and win. However, if on the way to those wins we put in a handful of boring performances (and still get a result) then that's fine by me.

"Even Bignot (who hadn’t got a clue) played more inspired and freer flowing football than this"

Seriously?!!!! I stopped reading after that sentence!

Don't know why there is a myth that we played football under Bignot. We didn't. Look back on any just back thread and it's full of comments about how nobody knew what the plan was.
