We lose, we don't score and we moan...and repeat, repeat, repeat...
As fans we deserve better but until the major share holder let's go of the purse strings and hands the baton on, what we can expect is more of the same crud for the foreseeable future...
I for one will NOT be renewing my season ticket for 2020/21 unless there are seismic changes within the structure of the club...

It only seems like yesterday when we escaped Non League and everyone was saying "never again".  From a distance it seems that inertia has set in again to such an extent that it is very hard to get momentum once you are in that rut.

I'm hoping that in this league ( if we survive this year) you do see teams that finish at one end of the table one season flip ends the following season - its not the premier league so that it the only thing that keeps me doing

It is the hope that kills you.

Sitting here in my ivory mansion miles away, I really do have total respect for those that go week in week out. As someone mentioned, many diehard town fans are not even bothering at the moment, and with all honesty, who can blame them! The club are losing money hand over fist with people not being there, not just through tickets, but with merchandise sales especially at this time of year.

We're in the fortunate position, at the moment of only one team (at the moment) being relegated, and should Macclesfield be deducted more points, I think we can only count ourselves as being very fuck1ng lucky.

Those in charge need to wise up, and see what is going on. It's blatantly obvious at the moment that the club is in free fall and without guidance from the top or even a manager we are going to end up with a serious relegation fight on our hands once again.



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

Woz makes a good point - those of us watching through our fingers from other areas of the UK have a lot of respect for people who endure this week on week.  12th October was our last league goal.

If I still lived in Grimsby I'm not sure I'd have the stomach to go every other week right now.  
The bizarre thing is that the away support is still bloody incredible.  I'll be going to the Orient game in Jan and as usual I imagine there will be a lot of Town fans there.

Not sure I want respect, I think my missus thinks I need locking up for inflicting GTFC on my boys every weekend, Seriously, it is the hope that kills you and I really believed that Fenty and his cronies might have learned from the last freefall into non-league. Phrases like 'Championship in 5 years' will come back and haunt Mr Day, 'Shut up' and 'Do you know who I am' similar for Mr Marley but they really are the puppets of a regime that wreaks of short-sighted, penny-pinching decisions.

We could get better or worse.

We can be above the next 2 teams that we play at home.  IF we win our games in hand.  We also (surprisingly) have a better GD than both Crawley and Salford.

We have to start scoring soon.

On the other hand we could continue in the wilderness, rudderless, alienating more fans.

My biggest concern is next season.  Without money for a clear-out and new players, we could struggle again, This season is very similar to when Luton had 17 points deducted and saved us. We did not heed the warning.

I think those in charge will genuinely be praying for Macclesfield to go belly up to save us this season. I might be completely wrong but I suspect JF enjoyed our time in the conference, being a big fish in a small pond, Wembley appearances etc. etc. and probably saw it as a success.
I do hope he maintains his stance of only selling the club to the right people, because the thought of Mr. Dodds and his cohorts taking over really sends a chill down my spine
