I am an incurable optimist, but even I can't see us staying up without several new players.

Also have to ask what might happen if we were to go a dozen or so matches without a win from here on in, worst case scenario, would the board sack him before the end of the season or stick with him for next season.

No chance.
Hurst doesn’t exaggerate and he wants 7-8 new players.

I suspect that scenario was covered off in his contract.

Of course we all expected the worst back in 2017. We had been on an abysmal run when Jolley took over.

But the difference then was that we were never in he drop zone, and always had a few points cushion. He brought in Fox, Ring and Ohman to sure up the defense, but the fact is that we had a few players that could still cut it at L2 level. Though we had foolishly let three of our best go in the January window, we still had the core of the side that had been close to the playoff zone at Christmas.

Now we are in he drop zone having played more games than many of our rivals, and have a chronic goal difference, a poor defense, no goal threat, little in midfield and an error prone goal keeper.

It's a far harder task now. But we do have more games, and apparently better funding available. So who knows.

But we definitely need some new players. Hopefully six, but four as an absolute minimum.

Might not matter if they declare this season null and void.
