Anyone else notice our demise coincides with the end of British Summer Time? Could it be that we have a problem playing under floodlights? Our bad run started on 26th October (a night game), then we lost to Notts County on the last Saturday of BST (when it would be pretty dark by the end of the game). Just by coincidence maybe we also improved massively at the end of last season when BST started at the end of March.

Do the players train exclusively during the day, so the only time they play together under the lights is during games? I know it's the same for most full-time teams, however the pattern does seem quite striking for us over the last two seasons. It would be interesting to see if there was any improvement if the players trained under similar conditions to those they play under.

Got to be in the running for the "clutching at straws for an excuse for our terrible form" awards.

Let's take it.

Hurst, The Board, Holloway, Fenty, the Players... you're all absolved*

It's that British Summer Time what's done it.

*I know it's a joke but to be clear, Fenty and Holloway are not absolved of anything.

You might be on to something here…

If Sears would have been caught one week later, the clocks would have gone back and he might have squeezed under the limit.

As we were told in the summer that we were signing 'good characters', did their characters change when the clocks changed? Did we carry out 'due diligence' on this?

I blame the Scottish. If they had not stopped it we would be on the EU western time

If people want to link the demise to the sears incident, and more hilariously to the weather, then shall we talk about the homophobic incident during the notts game? Literally the moment it all changed? Flying high and performing well in that game, until said incident. If anything is gonna cause dissent within the players then maybe its that? You could see the attitude in the players change from that moment on, suddenly that game wasn't about winning a football match anymore, and we've barely done so since. If we're gonna go there, then lets go there properly.

Is there a page on this site that lists excuses, if so then that one must be put to the top.

Come on now, we all know those incidents during the Grimsby Town vs Notts County are non-football related.

Yes it happened in our match, in a home stand, and caused the ref to stop the game. But it's simpy nothing to do with football or GTFC. This thread is about the abstract impact of British Summer Time, stop bringing in non-football topics.
