Thing is I don't think all the players were sure of the formation we were playing.

I'll gladly admit that I was keen to see Green play in a 2 with Hanson rather than wide in a 3 but, for the life of me, I can't understand what's happened to him. He scored a worldy at Chelsea but ever since seems to have spent large parts of games disinterested or falling over - I'm sure he's trying hard but are we beginning to see why he wasn't even getting a start in the National League last season?

What concerns me more than anything is the number of times our players turn to the bench for instructions. We're not playing FIFA FFS - surely there's a plan discussed in training and everyone knows their role - it does seem that if they forget Plan A then Plan B is hoof it in the general direction of Hanson.

Not for the first time in recent seasons, we appear happy to miss out midfield - which is criminal because Hess & Robson are decent footballers, though I'm unsure about the rest, particularly Whitehouse who looks like he is still suffering from the aftermath of his injury.

Quoted from KingstonMariner
Of course a poor budget is a reason for a poor standard of football. Of course some managers can get more out of the resources available than others. If Jolley is as shite as a lot of you are saying, why do you think we didn’t recruit a better manager? And why do you think we will recruit a better one now?

Spin the wheel. Waste a bit more time and money.

We have this debate most seasons about when to change a below par manager.

I think in this case, we have given him all the time he should be allowed. He has had the time to completely change the squad, who should all be playing out of their skins because they are all "his" players.

There is no sign whatever of any improvements - all we have done is change nearly the complete squad for no discernable improvement, either in performances or results.

I think the killer result was Mansfield at home which seems to have killed the season stone dead; we had a great result the week before, Mansfield were having an horrendous time of it and we never made the keeper make a save. The manager and players should have been going full pelt at that game but we were tame, tepid and had no will to deliver a killer blow.

Since then it has gone from bad to worse, we don't know the first 11, we don't know the formation. I think he has been overtaken by his computer stats instead of footballing common sense in playing your best 11 week in week out and the same formation so some continuity could take hold.

Whatever the starting 11/formation it is the lack of a will to win that gets my goat; getting everybody behind the ball all the time is not a will to win, it is admitting defeat. There are very few hard tackles, very few do or die moments, very little fire or excitement to get the crowd going.

This manager seems to have gone the way of all the others - very enthusiastic at the start and plenty of compliments about our history etc - but then it all falls flat. Perhaps this particular oil tanker cannot be turned round.

A fair summary I think.

Spot on L.C.L. - the guy doesn't realise  that if you have players upfield the other team has to have players back marking them.

I am old enough to remember Neil signing for the Scunts as a winger.
