Okay, I like many of you believe Paul Hurst got it wrong on Saturday and it almost certainly cost us two massive points. But, all is not lost. I say we draw a line under it, PH probably knows himself, he can't come out publically and admit it but let's hope he's learned a valuable lesson. On paper, the substitution he made was reasonable, to shore it up and see the game out.

We can still do it, we need to stick together, to get behind the players and see where it takes us. I suspect it will be the play offs but there's always that chance. And if we have to take part in the play offs, let the momentum take us to Wembley and back into the football league!

Good call. We are where we are, so let's keep supporting, as we have done and see where we can go.

Too right mate, it's the old cliche of one game at a time and see what happens. Realistically, with us losing 9 games already it does seem a long shot though - so we've nothing to lose!

Good post Vicar, what's done is done & and the time for moaning should've been over by Sunday morning.

Fully focused on handing Eastleigh their arses on Saturday now, hopefully the players are too.

Onwards and upwards.

Hmm think we are allowed to moan a little longer than that!

However have to agree, move on now and get prepared, another huge weekend coming up!

I always think back to the stats when we won Division 3 under George Kerr.... W 26 D 10 L 10

Whether that would be good enough to secure 1st place as it did all those years ago who knows, but it could just happen this season too...

Defeats cannot be taken out of context, and are linked to the performances of other teams' records.

9 or 10 defeats does not seem exceptional for promotion.  A quick look at the 2013-14 season in Division 2.  Scunthorpe got promoted automatically with 5 defeats, whilst Rochdale got promoted  automatically with 13 defeats.  (Both teams had 81 points).  I know 3 teams go up.  The champions only had 84 points.  

Scunthorpe also went up with more draws than wins.

In our Division, there is usually a standout team, or Wrexham finishing 2nd with 99 points as well. Their number of wins increases, with more defeats for other teams. This season it is more even at the top.
