The players gave everything and they played to the strengths of the people on the pitch. Halifax were going to win everything in the air so Town had to pass the ball and they did so superbly on occasions with Neilson at the heart of everything. There was no way that was a team who have lost faith in the manager.

Rob its not the players who have lost faith but many of us fans. A good result tonight and interesting point on another thread that if some golden chances had been taken, including tonight, how different things may look. From feedback tonight it appears we had the most success when we played it on the floor and that is the style, supported by the briefly seen pressing game, that will bring us success. I would like to see Pitman and Arnold down the centre playing this style but said after the Dover game that I did not think PH would ever go down that route and still not convinced.

The missed chances, although shared amongst a number of players, highlights our need for that quality striker that has eluded us since Hearn's injury.

Went tonight (my first game of season) honestly thought we were better team although they looked more likely to score our defence looked shaky at time then solid the next. I am not totally convinced on Hurst but if we play like that we will be up there but all about consistency now.

I think most of the fans still have faith in the manager. A few vociferous posters on here is a tiny fraction of fans.

There are many ways to play football. If it was an indisputable fact that paying a pressing, passing game every match was the most successful
then everyone would do it. Tonight we played to suit the personnel and system on the pitch, which is what you should do IMHO. If you have bigger forwards on then it makes sense to utilise their height more. I think it's good that we can vary our style and play different ways, it keeps the opposition guessing.

Well I would guess that Fishy posters cover a fair cross section of our overall fan base, certainly where I sit in the upper findus he does not have a lot of support. We all want him to achieve but I just feel the inconsistency in results is the only constant in our results.

Most of the fans I know don't have faith in the manager. The ones that are still going to games that is.  To say it's a few vociferous posters on here is well wide of the mark in my experience of talking to many Town fans.

Well we have two trust representatives on the board so I guess they are gauging opinion. I guess most people just know like-minded friends who tend to be a similar age and background, to get a truly representative poll is difficult. My impression is we are nowhere near at the stage with the crowd where we were with the other sackings of the Fenty era: Rodger, Woods and Buckley (Newell sacking was a bit different).

Plus I feel the players totally back the manager which they didn't with some of the names I have mentioned.
