Quoted from Garth


Because he helped get us into this mess by not adequately signing (when he had all the time in the world) cover for the strikers positions,  vacated by Cook and Southwell, bad management in my book, the next three matches will answer your question highlighted, now lets see if he and the players can get us out of it


True..

and that boils down to him, he had a full summer to get 2 quality strikers in , we got pittman who came on trial and I think he is quality but he will be injured for at least  quarter of the season as his track record proves he is very injury prone.

we knew we needed quality upfront this year and again paul decides we will go with what we have got, we should not be panicking now looking for loans , we should have 4 quality strikers at our disposal but we aint and whos fault is it?

Hannah has been imo a major disappointment since he came permanantley, yes he scored 15 or so goals last year but at a 50k price tag I would expect more.

Its time for fenty to seriously start thinking when not if he is going to take action.

But which action to take? Invest in players under existing manager or appoint new manager to bring in his own? By and large we've got a decent side which is let down by a lack of depth in centre midfield and a lack of cover up front.

Difficult!    To invest in players is a no brainer,  whether under this manager who as seen can scout a good player, or throw it all in the air and change the manager as well.

Chances are under Hurst with additional playing staff we will I think make the play offs again, but with a new manager with new ideas and sound connections his new additions could well see us go all the way,

Its a question of finance, cost to get rid plus cost to recruit   versus    cost to keep and hope for the best, I know which looks the cheaper but falling gates and increased animosity might prove otherwise

This season Hurst has made excuses, rightly, or wrongly about refs and injuries.  But, it was his fault Neilson missed the 1st 3 games due to not appealing his sending off, it was his fault we failed to perform in that play-off game at Gateshead, it is his fault that he persists with Disley, it is his fault and Lord Fenty's, they did sign that promised player, that would "make the hairs on the back of our necks stand on end" and leaves us short up front.  He never gave Southwell his chance and is not giving Walker and Winfarrah a decent chance either.  We have a decent squad, team, we just need a manager to get the best out of them, Hurst is not that man.  A failure to win tonight, should mean he clears his desk, as it will be crystal clear he is not able to take us up, even at this stage of the season (as it was crystal clear last season tbh).

Is it the decider? Only if the result is an absolute disaster and even then maybe not.

For JF the deciding factors will be financial and the availability of a replacement. Doig and Dave Moore as caretakers looks most likely and a few points for that combo could spell another el cheapo appointment by Christmas. I cannot see JF paying comp for PH and comp to another club for a successful manager so his market will be most likely restricted to the unemployed or appoint from within the club.

Whatever happens, we have to face the unpleasant fact that in September the club can have only a scrape into the play-offs as an aim.

I don't want to see any man lose his job, I hope Paul can turn it around but I am very disappointed we haven't signed that elusive striker. We've needed one in since pre season and we are paying the price now. Why we can't sign a player from Solihill illegitimate Motors or whatever they are called speaks volumes! Also, PH had had three days to plug the gap yet has failed to bring anyone in. Unacceptable and I have to question his ability to attract players to the biggest club in the league. Either that or the board isn't backing him, perhaps as they don't trust him and he's on his way out?

John will not sack Paul just yet,

He will wait a few weeks and then judge what would be the best thing to do,

BUT

As John has said a few times on here,

It's not up to him it's a board decision.

What is starting to worry me is that if we don't address all the issues hanging around the Club soon (on and off the field) we will no longer be viewed as the biggest club in the Conference.

I know people on here can be critical at times, but with the decline showing no signs of abating I think the powers that be have got off lightly with the fans really.

My opinion for what its worth is that the Board(!) has been pinning its hopes on a new ground for donkeys years now and it looks as far away as ever.

This new stadium malarkey has been going on to the detriment of everything else.

I would like some statement (in English preferably) from the Board(!) about what they intend to do to turn the playing fortunes around if indeed the new stadium may be 3/5/10 years away.

I think we are being taken for mugs if I am honest.

No, his overall record since he's been here has been good. Town never do well (under any manager) when the side is changing every game as PH has been forced to do for most of this season. Get a settled side and this blip will soon be forgotten.


Rob he wasn't forced to do it at Lincoln, he just did it anyway. Costing us the game.

the only action is a new manager with fresh ideas and a confidence in his team that they are good enough, paul imo does not have the balls to make them big decisions when we need them, his subs are predictable his interviews are predictable..

I know we have the squad, I really do believe the quality is there its about making your players believe yes we can win this league and yes we are going there for a win , not the 4-5-1 which says everything you need to know.

it is just time for that change we have needed for about a year and it should happen now.

the hardest job will be getting a new man in and that is one decision john and the board need to take time and talk to other people about to make sure that when and not if the inevitable happens they get it right because he cant afford to get it wrong.
