Although I know I will be positive and optimistic about the Carlisle game I have to realistic and face the facts that relegation is staring us in the face. So plan A is not working, it doesn't look like survival is going to happen so I began to think about plan B.

Then to me a penny dropped. Is plan A still on course for the consortium?

To help those who like to red cross me without reading here's some help XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

For those others I would you like to think about a question I asked on another thread. Who employed Hurst? Their is no love between Fenty and Hurst so it must have been the consortium, and why no other applicants. It was a closed shop, or if somebody knows name some names of managers who didn't get the job. Why did the consortium want Hurst and why did he come to a club he described as in a mess.

As somebody posted weeks ago, when I was pillared for querying what the consortium was going to do, the consortium are intelligent business men. They obviously wanted Hurst who is very experienced at NL level. So did they already know/realise that the takeover would not be completed before mid March at the earliest and perhaps, just perhaps, Hurst had told them their was no chance of Town staying up! Remember Hurst said the club was in a mess, which wouldn't bode confidence in the squad he inherited. Hurst is given an 18 month contract to cover this period, otherwise these intelligent business men would fire a manager, be it football or otherwise, if he didn't deliver on his promises.

I would like to think I am wrong but too many things are happening along these lines. Is Hurst slowly preparing for the NL and has that been the aim all the time. Now nobody is going to come out in the open and say it are they. Look at the signings Hurst has made, with the exception of JLL the rest all terminate in the summer with a host of others. Team rebuilding starts then in the NL and it looks around JLL.

Like every fan I want Town to stay up but it certainly looks like plan A is going along nicely.

I believe that one of the consortium has stated on twitter that PH is going no where.

He’s not prepping for the National League he’s just trying to work with what he’s got to keep us up at the moment. He’s made some odd calls but he’s only focussed on one thing for sure. That’s your plan A.

Jason Stockwood openly supported Hurst last weekend on Twitter..could be the dreaded vote of confidence..who knows.

Completely plausible and I believe that is the Plan B, it has to be. They're not going to throw all their eggs into one basket, which is Plan A - to stay up -, because we will be in even more of a mess if it does go wrong and we end up being relegated - which looks more than likely now.

Jason Stockwood is a big town fan and wants the best for the club.

Unlike Fent y who said he loved the club but his main object each season was to take money out.

I don't think the club has set up to be relegated, but there will certainly be a plan B, there has to be in business. I think Hurst was employed due to what he did with Shrewsbury when they were down the bottom, plus that he knows how to get out of non league if it were to happen. The investors knew the club is in disarray and there was always the chance we could go down.

Is Hurst the right man? I thought he was, not so sure at the moment but yesterday was better. But if we do get relegated then maybe Hurst will be the right person. Someone who knows what is needed to get out the league, it took him 2 years last time to figure it out. This time, with more financial backing, it may not take as long. But we are staying up though

You are a bit mad but I love your energy and enthusiasm. Probably better applied to something that deserves it
