Before we start thinking about next season,  I had a quick look at our home stats.  We know that is where we lost any chance of automatic promotion. Many home perfomances and and results were dire.

Barnet and Bristol Rovers between them got 25 more home points that us.  There is a  lot of potential extra points there for us next season.

Despite us winning at Dover, they won more homes games than us, scored more goals at home and conceded fewer home goals.

To improve at home we need a striker (or 2 strikers) who will take more of the good chances that we create.  We are not good at getting good crosses into the box for strikers. Therefore, we need a winger who can do this consistently.  Additionally, we really need an energeic attacking midfielder who can score goals to supplement what the strikers can do.  A NL Frank Lampard or somebody like Chris Lines would be ideal.  We also need to impove our deadball opportunities.

I know funds are limited and these players are hard to find. However, Hurst has proved to be an astute judge of talent.. Next season we must get out of this league.  Fortune favours the brave.

Interesting stats that back up the fact we need more goals and creativity.

Only failing to score in one out of 46 away games is not 4% it's 2.2% isn't it?
Our away record is fantastic, need to change outlook at home a lot and the fans will have little to moan about and if we get close to this seasons away form, we'll be in with a shout. Hope that yesterday wasn't the end for a few of the players as this squad are a credit to the name of GTFC.

Basically teams that get the defence / attack balance right win leagues and big games. Our balance isnt quite right, how we change that is open to discussion.

IMO better midfield, a goal scorer and a little more attacking intent from PH.

Irrelevant of the players we keep or that go the blueprint has to remain the same. Successful teams keep the same ideas and dont have major changes year on year.

Doh! 14 hour day after this weekend has of course addled my already simple mind.

In 2015 we lost at home to Bristol Rovers, Macclesfield and Wrexham. We drew with Gateshead and beat everyone else. Nearly all the poor results against smaller sides were in 2014 at home. I'm not saying we have overcome the BP problem but I think everyone agrees that the squad in the last third of the season is potentially good enough to have won the league this season, never mind next.

Before Christmas our home record could probably be described as average, which don't get me wrong isn't good enough, but to call it appalling is possibly the emotion of the last couple of days taking over. We turned that average home record into a decent one post Xmas. If we'd have done it sooner ... Well who know.
