My worry is if we do stay up will JF start giving the manager a promotion challenging budget or will he just try to claw more of his loan money back.

If the latter happens then another relegation battle will probably ensue and so on.

I think yesterday showed just how poor this squad is and we are by far the worst team in the league. We haven't won for 16 games, have been bottom of the form guide for months and just making a keeper work is an achievement at the moment.

We saw a slight new manager lift yesterday, but really should have been dead and buried by the hour mark. It's testament to how poor we are that we were totally outplayed on our own patch by a side that also haven't won since December. Barnet have taken 7 points from their last 6 games and i think they could catch us.

Look at these stats and be very worried. We are bottom of every one of them and the relative form guide makes for grim reading. We are only averaging 0.25 per game. Unless there is a significant upturn, we are going down.

So if we do lose every remaining game but still stay up does that mean Mr Jolley gets the chop in the GTFC managerial merry go round ?  😉

I hope we are going to be alright.

I think yesterday we got behind the team and it showed. it could have been a lot worse but we battled

Mr Jolley knows the battle we are in and I think he can stop the poison

His reactions yesterday was everything I hoped from a new manager he seemed to realise what this club means to the town

If the manager has passion it either rubs off on the players else he will pick players that it does.

Mr Slade had no passion and it showed


It is interesting you say Slade had no passion.

Remember his first game in charge against Cambridge last season? Punching the air, saluting the crowd after a pretty routine win. The same this season at the first game at Chesterfield. He showed a lot of passion. An awful lot of managers show a lot of passion early doors, but as the reality sinks in that the club has no ambition, no investment, no new stadium and a God awful board of directors I think apathy/reality sinks in.

I hope Jolly can break the mould, and take the club by the scruff of the neck and be some sort of catalyst for improvement in all areas.

I really hope we can stay up; if we don't it doesn't bear thinking about.

Many fans have seen the writing on the wall for weeks and weeks, and the only people who seemed oblivious to it all were the board.

How their pompous complacency has landed us right in it. As you say the new manager was able to get a smidgen more effort and desire but to even get in the opposition box is a highlight.

We cannot score, we cannot create, we give penalties away like sweets and concede enough most games to lose.

These last nine games are going to be hell; to keep us up would be such an achievement with this shower, but even then it will be other teams failings that might save us.I fully expect Chesterfield to have a late rally like we did when we went down, they are not going to give up without a fight.  We took it to the last game last time and I expect they will do the same.

Go down again and the future is very bleak.

Let’s hope MJ can find something in enough of the players to slowly see us start to improve
Let’s hope he gets them to try new things and get there confidence to grow
Let’s hope last min equaliser yesterday was the start of something
Let’s hope we get some sort of result from the next 2 very difficult away games.
Let’s hope that somehow this squad have the metal to start to get results when mathematically it is a necessity which it will be next home game if we don’t get any results from Gimps and Sky blues (which current from suggests we won’t)
How different the hope I felt when I came away from Chesterfield away 1st game from the hope I cling to now
What a complete f****p this season has been
Which could see us following the likes of York and Stockport into oblivion
Fans have done there bit in last three to four seasons so
MJ / PW / JF and the current squad it’s over to you to see us stay in DIV 2 in next 9 games
Come on Town!!

Let's look at this pragmatically.

For us to go down, Chesterfield need to overtake us - and right now they're seven points behind.

If they don't overtake us, we can still go down if Barnet overtake us - and they're eight points behind.

We're in awful form, and I'd prefer not to leave anything to chance - but I think the key is getting one win AND making sure we DO NOT LOSE our home match to Chesterfield.

If we do that, I think we could be alright, with a few draws here and there. I'm by no means suggesting that's what we aim for - that would be foolish - but just suggesting what a 'realistic' absolute minimum would be for us to be safe.

This is the stark reality. I can only see two defeats coming up too.

Depressing as it sounds, I would actually take 2 defeats (as long as they're not hammerings) if it meant the bottom 2 lost their games as well.
