For the record, the results at Gateshead & Alfreton have bought him more time in my eyes. If they were scraped 1-0 wins i'd be certainly calling for his head, he's showed that he can make this team play well. The concern after those games was, was he going to be classic Hurst and revert to his old negative ways. Quite staggeringly he has, he's only himself to blame for that.

People cite the fact he's got unlucky with injuries as we don't have enough cover. Who's fault is that? It's Hurst's fault for not bringing in the right amount of players needed for any eventuality. 3 strikers is a bit of a joke, yet he's done sod all about it still. A loss tonight will see him under some serious serious pressure. A new manager will have a good squad to work with, Hurst can take pride in that. But he's never ever going to be tactically aware or flexible enough to get this side promoted, the last 4 weeks have summed him up in a nutshell.

will a loss today see the dismissal of Hurst? or will the board keep him in for a bit longer?


Dunno. Only one man can answer that.

With 2 of the potentially 4 big games in a row we haven't shown anything that provides confidence for the fugure . Injuries are a factor , the odd player with a loss of form , however it's never really been addressed . Get the Kiddy game out of the way , then serious decisions will have to be made . As Garth said cost to us for keeping him , cost to the club for letting him go .

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.    



Sounds very similar to what Newell said about us fans and the set up at GTFC - what was it about 5 or 6 years ago now.

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


Defensive errors, including 2 daft penalties, allied with misses at the other end of the pitch cost us that game.

There is simply no way of knowing if an unchanged team would have won, especially in a game as heated as a derby match.

Regardless, this doesn't relieve him of the responsiblity for failing to sign enough strikers this season, which is a bad error.

I was appalled by PH's comment in the Telegraph that they would 'give it a go' tonight.  That sounds so lame from a manager of a team with aspirations to be top of the table.  He should be saying that we are going there to give are all and I expect the players to win, even with injuries.  Imagine Winston Churchill saying 'we'll give it a go on the beaches'!!

He didn't anyway did he, even back in those halcyon days when we weren't in the state of losing 3 games.
