The time has come ladies and gentlemen to stop making excuses for this inept, negative, clueless manager !

Kidderminster have recently had to get rid of most of their best players but still have no trouble beating us, A bunch of Insurance salesmen and plumbers have no problem putting four past Altrincham, but not us, no, we struggle for a draw.

At this rate we will struggle for the play offs, which with this squad available IS CRIMINAL !!!!!!!

This is what you get when a defensive coach manages your team !

I honestly believe that if the majority of fans on here found Paul Hurst in bed with their wife/girlfriend they would still make excuses for him !!!!! (And a cup of tea) !!!!

Its time to STOP, time to take of the rose tinted spectacles and wake up and smell the coffee !!!!!!!

Cue excuses,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,we are still second, blah blah blah......................best defensive record, blah blah blah,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Lenny will score 40. blah blah blah

WAKE UP before its too late.

I agree with the OP but you're not allowed to question the regime on here without getting shot down, so I don't post much now.

Same here but I stopped attending after the Southport game and vowed not to return whilst PH remained in charge. Not particularly proud of my stance and recent results were starting to make me question if I was right, however, the content of my brother's texts at half and full time mean I will be staying at home Tuesday as well.

Keep hoping PH will change his approach for home matches but it appears not. I hope we can get out of this league but to do so our home form has to be addressed.

Everyone should be allowed an opinion, I truly hope you are proved right Ronnie, but if we are to succeed I would reiterate that home form and performances have to improve. If as you say on another thread that we would have struggled even if we had played well where does that leave us in terms of achieving our objective?

You forgot - one bad game isn't the end of the world. This comment is allowed but strangely the opposite never is for some reason.

Also ..... there are 25m points still to play for

And ..... with our budget we are doing as well as can be expected.

And .... we had X number of players out injured and suspended. Oops, we didn't did we? Scratch that one.



"There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone, and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends, I still can recall
Some are dead, and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all."

I haven't posted much in the last couple of months because the season just a sense of inevitability about it.

I came to the conclusion after the Southport game that I thought Hurst should be removed from his position. I said at the time I thought Hurst was a decent manager and has done a decent job with us, but I don't see him as being capable of taking us any further than he has. I highlighted his negative approach, lack of understanding of different systems, inability to read (and act on) the tactical flow of a game and strange substitutions as clear flaws of his.

What has happened since then is probably likely to keep repeating itself over and over until the seasons end. We drew a few, won a few, and lost. I suspect we'll always have these little good runs under Hurst which get us all thinking we might do it and might get that level of consistency needed. But it all comes crashing down sooner rather than later. And describing away draws at Dartford and Altrincham as good points just speaks volumes to me and doesn't sound like team going for the title. I've also said several times before about his inability to get us playing 433. He claims its a 433 but its not, its 451 the way he has us playing it.

I'm normally as positive as anyone but I have a deflated feeling as I've kind of resigned myself to the likely outcome of us being ok but inconsistent and making the play offs without too much difficulty. Sadly, when we get there, I don't think Hurst has got the tactical nouse to manage us through 3 vital games to take us up.
