Must admit a week ago I was asking for Jolley to be sacked on here but after our last two performances I'm happy to eat humble pie and admit I was wrong (for now).......... it's a funny old game.

I think most of us who want Jolley to succeed were feeling the heat last Saturday, it was impossible not to. I thought he'd shot his bolt for sure but back to back wins gives us some breathing space for now.

Feeling hopefull again!

Have believed in the man from the start and was more than content for him to have the entire season to prove himself... I am really pleased to see he might be starting to turn it around!

Great result today. UTM.

Any manager that loses 6 on the bounce is going to be threatened with the sack , any criticism he and the team recieved was deserved .
Everyone wants Jolley to do well and hopefully we’ve turned the corner now

I suppose Mr Fenty has to be given credit by not sacking Jolley after that bad run......did I really say that   ......just off to wash my mouth out.

Can you elaborate on this? You’ve mentioned it twice now.

The losing streak was awful and becoming indefensible, but sacking in September wasn't the answer. We're all allowed opinions but coming back from BP after another defeat filled with anger and demanding the Manager go NOW, or by Sunday dinnertime or Monday morning is never the answer. Just as the two-win streak doesn't mean the Manager should have a contract extension.
We need a bit of calm now, there's still a bumpy road ahead but we have the ways and the means of getting through the season and installing something for next.

Let's just keep getting those goals Town, it's all the difference.

As long as we are not in the mire at the bottom, i'm quite happy for Jolley and Limbrick to be given the time to build a team and squad capable of at least competing in this league. We haven't given a manager time since Hurst and that came good eventually. We've actually seen some decent footy at times under Jolley's short tenure and once we can hit that standard more regularly, we will do fine. We have a lot of young players at the club who need time to develop too.

Consistency will be the difference maker. We've been struggling to find that for a while. Only our second home win of the season and we only have one draw at home with the rest being losses. We have lost over 50% of games so far. We only have 3 wins and 2 of those were back to back the last 2 games.

I'm not going to lick behind just because we managed to beat two teams that are out of form. Saying we shouldn't demand to sack the manager is all well and good but you need to be equally realistic about us finally picking up a couple of wins. If form slips and it's after January it'll be already too late to save the season.
