How long have we been stuck on 40 odd points? Seems like forever.

From having a lot of games in hand and only a few points behind the teams above us it's not looking very good now.

Barnet 8 points behind but 5 games in hand (means we need to win at least 3 of those)
Alfreton 8 points behind and now only 4 games in hand. (again need to win at least 3)
Salisbury 4 points behind but 4 games in hand which makes Saturdays game a must-win or else they'll be looking hard to catch now too.

Quoted from jonnyboy82


We know it will get better?

How many years you been saying that.

Fenty to break the bank to get gary mills or steve burr , both cant be on big contracts.

Time to save our season or this will end like the last one


Do not think we can gamble that heavily on 'a saviour' as the turmoil would be unlikely to help.  When we are hardly in a good financial situation with almost all our squad out of contract at the end of the season think we have to be somewhat prudent.  I would rather have a club to support than no club!

That said this is becoming a big crunch time for Hurst, what started as a blip is now becoming a severe slump.  However if we can get past this and rediscover some of our earlier season form we should still be in the playoffs and as long as do not play as badly as last year in them we have a chance.

We reached the 40 point mark on december 19th when we beat kidderminster I beleive, 9 out of 24 since, so had we won all our games, we'd be sitting in second, on 64 points, 8 points behind luton, with 3 game in hand worth a potential 9 points. Obviously it we were never going to win them all, just shows how well luton have done though.

Shaun Pearson`s interview was honest and to the point, blames himself for the second goal and is determined to right it on Saturday.
Still in with a great chance but require loan bodies in now to cover injuries

That said, I think we will beat Salisbury and then go on and make the play offs! After all, we all want the manager to stay.



Errr, I don't! He's got no energy, no ideas and no inspiration. (Unless that was sarcsm but it's lost on me tonight as I've had to much J.D. to drown my sorrows! )

Big test for Paul Hurst now, in terms of dealing with pressure.  Obviously he's been through it before, but not by himself, and I expect Scott's shoulders were quite broad - it must be tough to have to deal with it alone when you're used to being in a partnership.  A test for the players too - we will soon see how much they are prepared to give of themselves in supporting their gaffer and how much of a cohesive team they really are when things aren't going to plan.  Everybody was praising their team spirit during the first half of the season, and saying that was the big difference between this year and last year - well let's see how good that spirit really is.

And a test for the fans too of course (not that we need to prove ourselves - had plenty of traumas to overcome in the last few years and come through them OK), but again we have a choice.  Continue to support the team or throw in the towel.  Let's see who does what.

You say that, but when? From what I know about his career he's been at two teams that were good for their league, and led them to high positions in those leagues, then he's come here which should be a similiar scenario, but theres more pressure, and you could argue looking at the tail end of last season and then now, that maybe the pressure is a bit too much. Everyones got to learn, but tonights result has got to be the tipping point, and now he can't just put another team out and hope for a better performance and a bit of luck, I think he's got to try something different, doesn't have to be drastic, but theres flaws in our system in struggling to break down opposition and being hit on the break so i'd like to see some pro-activeness from the manager and a willingness to change things.
