There will be more defeats to come, although hopefully not 6 on the bounce, but IF we believe we want a young manager to develop both himself and young players then maybe we need to be patient?
Five starters aged 23 or under and two more on the bench, much rather have that than a load of journeymen over 30

Did you? And then you said something else the day after, and then something else the day after that.
I'll call you the weather vein Pete - spinning in the wind of prevailing opinion.

Most people were exasperated about the succession of defeats, dreadful performances and lack of goals. Equally, most people weren't asking for Jolley to be sacked. We were all wondering where to vent our frustration. Was it a poor budget? What was wrong with the players?
Those questions were justified. Very few people wanted Jolley to be dismissed, and there was the usual clamour for Fenty to go. I think we just wanted to see GTFC staff raise their game and restore some pride. Most people are right behind Jolley and want him to succeed. He was and is popular.

As said previously; we might win some, lose some and draw some. I think we'll all be ok with that, provided we can play with some commitment and there is some visible evidence of a method.
Feeling much better tonight.
UTM.

Good call I think the bit in bold is where the energy has come from in the last couple of games. Max Wright looks like a prospect to me as well as the lads involved today.

I know "he's one of our own" like us all I'm a bit bias towards him for that as well has his attitude and workmate but I thought Clifton was excellent today, at CM he was the glue that held a lot together, that lad could be some player, hopefully for us for a long while yet!

It was just good to see Harry playing in the centre of the pitch. The three young lads (him, Embleton & Rose) were great today - yes. they could move more without the ball but they're young & learning,

A couple of hard fought wins doesn’t deal with the problems in the boardroom.
We’ve had a few good results and then the murmurings about the manager will begin again when we lose a couple.

The squad is thin and cheap. Hopefully MJ will get the best out of them, but I feel it will be an uphill battle.

But is MJ sitting on some of his budget till January as he's earmarked player's from the Swedish leagues?

And he's had a potentially star man crocked for the Season before it started don't forget.

It doesn't but we live in hope.

Quoted from The Old Codger
Just good to see our younger players given the chance to play in their preferred positions, notably Vernam & Clifton. Harry looks so much more at ease in a central position and barely wasted a pass all game.


Square pegs in round holes has cost us IMO. Sometimes it's a case of having to play someone out of position but it's been needless. Harry Clifton at right wing back, or right wing was never going to work for example. Hate to say it but the energy of the midfield three has been vital these last couple of games. John Welsh sitting in front of the back four has only slowed us down, Vernam over Woolford was a change that should have been made some time ago IMO.

That said, I am firmly behind Michael. We played some great stuff at Carlisle, and on Saturday we were excellent. Let's hope we can kick on and get into the play offs.

I know you're only asking the question Rik, but a lot of people seem to have this idea and I really don't know what it's based on other than wildly guessing or putting 2+2 together from some loosely-made comments in past interviews.
