Hasn’t taken long, and I knew it wouldn’t  - the usual protagonist s appear first opportunity to have a pop at all and sundry.
Manager, owners, players..it’ll be the chefs and laundry department soon..

Yes it’s a disappointing spell, but is it a disaster?? It’s December..even allowing for the possibility of poor results til January..we’ll still be in a position to attain play offs come season end. If so - a good number of the support will have taken that if asked before season commenced.

And Noche and his cronies ..dear oh dear…

Whatever ‘argument’ you put up on the new regime - it’s still better than what your mate offered for years. You think the match day experience isn’t better? Or attracting families/next generation? You think engaging community isn’t happening? You think employees behind the scenes aren’t happy??? You’re sadly mistaken.

Come back and pipe up in May if we’ve finished 10th or worse, then maybe you’ll have an argument (on the on field matters anyway) - but the stuff off the pitch - you can carry on til the cows come home..you haven’t got a leg to stand on.  

And as for the usual doom merchants just looking for another ‘I told you so’ …zzzzz. What a way to live. Bit like those conspiracy theory on everything types.

Football is about results. And currently, they’re excrement.

Yes, the new regime are busy turdpolishing BP but you can’t expect fans to be happy watching the team lose 6 games out of 7 surely?
If we’d lost 6 out of 7 under Fenty, this board would be going apoplectic. Currently, it’s pretty rational debate by comparison.

We’re non league, how long do you want that to last? For me, it needs to be as short as possible. I fear that won’t be the case.

Totally agree. Anybody who thought it would be a quick fix after years of stagnation were deluding themselves.

Yep.

Completely irrational to expect one of the highest budget, best supported clubs in non league to beat the likes of Kidderminster, Aldershot and Wealdstone.

I was completely underwhelmed by the summer signings and said so at the time. I was also on a big downer still from the previous season and vowed not to enter BP. It didn’t take me long to do a u-turn, and the team blew me away in those first 2 months.

Our recent form has been beyond dreadful. However. I suspect very much that it’s a case of the away day blues. I can’t explain that, but most teams have those at some point. I’ll remain relatively positive as I have a sneaky suspicion that our home form will remain good, and balance things out a bit.

I think our expectation pre-season was modest, then it sky-rocketed, and now we’ve been brought back down to Earth. Despite the last few weeks, I would still say that top 7 is do-able, and even 7th place wouldn’t be a disaster. The playoff format in non-league is mad, one-legged ties, that despite our away form would really give us a chance against anyone.

Get back to winning ways at BP, even if it’s not this Saturday, get some positive momentum, and I think we’ll be back in business.

'The likes of' give over two clubs rock up to every match. By the same argument Wrexham, Stockport and Chesterfield should all 'expect' to walk over us because they've got deeper pockets.

That’s not true though is it, no fornicator really gave a excrement under Fenty, hence why he was here so long…

Based on that logic how dare Harrogate  beat Portsmouth and  Hartlepool  beat Lincoln in the FA Cup. I know Cup games are a great leveller but to Aldershot and Wealdstone, playing town is like a cup match.
