Difficult to go on gates though, Man City had increasing gates the further down the leagues they went and in fact some clubs even go the other way...our side is better than last year and we are clearly better...yes we have dropped points through no fault but our own but the only one that is directly the managers fault is Fleetwoods second last week. Last year we had 11 players who just turned up and expected their wages etc...i don't believe that this year, anyone who has witnessed how the players react when we score suggests that they too want the success we so desperately want as fans too.


I thought this time last week with NW`s head on the block the players would get at least 4 points from the 2 games they managed 2 points and in true GY fashion that is now acceptable?It makes me despair we seem to worry far more about what xyz are going to do than letting them worry about us whatever faults Buckley had he always said let them worry about us and overall his philosophy worked.

And once again, the 'bigger' clubs in this league have struggled against the so called weaker clubs...Luton lost at Gateshead, we didn't, and if you look through previous results that has always been the case and will continue to be. I don't know why but it happens

Yes and you will still be happily playing the fiddle when the boat sinks REALITY CHECK



Just when will you get that I ain't happy with our position.   The trouble with it is you fellows NEVER offer a credible alternative.  You NEED to offer a way out of this and until you do then I will try and mend my fiddle for about the twentieth time. Honestly I would take a serious alternative and I suspect so would the board. Your idea of throwing the baby out with the bathwater and I suspect the bath aswell will result in us not having a club and that then means there would never be a chance in the future to repeat the glories you crave.

His philosophy did work, however his tactics never did and whilst i agree that you stick to your methods and principles, his final spell showed how out of date they were at times and in someways that speel is partly to blame for this awful place we find ourselves...however some would say that is Fenty's fault for appointing him in the first place.

In the real world that's how it works.

In the fantasy world of RBOH and others the fans take control. Mmmmm.    Have a look at the rest of football, it is owned by money and unless you produce alternative money you have no chance whatsoever.

Reality check.

A change at the top may or may not happen at the AGM but the same money will be in the club.


Agreed.

Was just pointing out that there was never likely to be anything revealing in a missive from the Chairman and it's as you were for now,so let's just get on with things and hope Woods turns it around.

A few wins will stop all this navel gazing.

I am sure it is easier for you to maintain your position by assuming that I have suggetsed a fans takeover when I have suggested nothing of the sort.  I just pointed out fenty's record as maj shareholder/chairman.  Now, go and make something else up to attack me about!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I for one dont get the obsession withLuton romping the league i admit i thought they would do better than us because they had a years experience however Crawley and their budget suggest they are going for broke so should be favourites.You will always get results like H&Y at home and much as it annoys you it is reality football isnt played on paper BUT on the filed the centre of Towns midfield has been THE problem for about 6 years and nobody seems to notice?

Thank you John Fenty , most of us know how hard it will be to turn things around,

Do not listen to the moaners who want Woods out, if you listen to them we would have 3 managers a season,

You can not get instant success whoever your players are, just ask Hodgson at Liverpool.

But icey, there was a credible alternative when NW was appointed and there are still credible alternatives available now - if JF wants one. It need not be a "baby and bathwater job" either. These are not bad players that we have, just badly organised and badly led.

It isn't reasonableness that is stopping JF from acting. It isn't a desire to give Woods a chance. It is fear, pure and simple. JF has made so many mistakes he is afraid of admitting another and having to change horses yet again because I think he knows that he is not very good at it. His judgement on fish markets may be spot on but he does not have the same abilities when it comes to running a football club and I think he knows it. So he is prevaricating.

Fair enough, I agree that changing managers is not ideal, but it is the least worst option available to the chairman at this time.
