Quoted from Maringer
We'll not get anything like 4,000 for a home game (other than a derby) regardless.

Just looked at the results from the middle of the 2011/12 season when we were unbeaten in months and hanging around the top of the table, and we were only attracting the same number of fans as we did for the Welling game the other week. Just a few hundred more than last night, even.

I don't think even plenty of victories and scoring goals makes all that much difference to the attendance.
I totally agree with you. Last night I would have picked exactly the same team that Hurst did but Southport completely ground us down. We just didn't know how to combat it,

What a load of b0llocks, a team without an away win for God knows how long, lost their last 4 games without scoring a goal, how come they didn't grind any of the other teams down.

We were sh!t end of, why can't you just accept that.

I think his comment was fair. Southport came at us from the kick-off and we couldn't cope with their high tempo and pressing game as they certainly didn't sit back in the way that Nuneaton and Dover did. We couldn't cope with their up and at 'em attitude because pretty much all of our players were crap on the night. I reckon that's about as well as Southport can play and (hopefully) about as badly as we can play.

Only hope we don't have to see anything as inept as that for the rest of the season.

Southport came at us because we let them.

Before kick-off Hurst SHOULD be telling the team to start at a high tempo, get the ball into channels to attack their slow back 3, move players like Big Mac about and create gaps for Neilson, Brown and Mackreth to exploit. To my mind, either the players don't listen or he doesn't say it. More than that,why wasn't something done at half-time? I don't know the answer but I suspect it's because dull Paul thinks that 0-0 isn't bad and we can still win without changing it.

I'm sure he's a nice bloke but he's still way too defensively minded. Of our strikers, one's hamstrung, one's offside, one can't score and the other doesn't seem to want to play so we've loaned in a kid that isn't match-fit. It's bonkers!

He has never to my knowledge made an unforced change before at least the 60 min mark. Strange.

Depending on whether you count Hurst as being Scott and Hurst, wasnt there a game when we took off I'anson and possibly Southwell early on (first half?)

Regarding not getting gates of 4,000,

Just shows how the good few fans who want Town to be consistent before they return to Blundell Park,

Maybe they agree with the growing number on here that a change at the top is needed before we can be consistent ,

Whatever the reason they are staying away they will not return because of the way we are playing at the moment.,

Let's remember we were getting gates of 4,000 or less when  Laurie Mcmenemy joined us,

The gates shot up to average over 11,000,

I am not saying that will happen again but if we find the right man,

The gates will be over 4,000 in no time because the stay away fans just want a good reason to return.

The fact is we have played 13 games,

WON 5   DRAWN 4   LOST  4

We are 13th in the league,

Will we get promoted,?

You do the maths, I am going to bed.


Ok GY Pete , I reckon it's time u take a chill pill mate . I'm as up for a change in management as you and the majority are .

BUT .. (to use your style ) ..

We all know we should be doing better but let's give over now till sat 4:50 cos the frenzy needs to calm a bit for everyone's good .
