Is the defence the problem? The 6 teams above us have all conceded the same or more than we have.

It's only the top three who have considerably better goals against records.

So because you're losing the argument you're going to make stuff up to argue with?


How am I losing the argument? You haven't changed my mind one bit mate..

You just seem to be ignoring a lot of the arguments made against yours and then imagining others to argue with instead.

Still find this so hard to accept - that Gavin Gunning is playing at this level for a team doing well!!!


The very same Mad Gav Gunning that, by his admission, doesn't even like football!

I'm a bit confused by the idea that Hurst built a good squad, got it playing well with a great atmosphere about the team and in training, but then somehow destroyed the confidence of the players, revealing them to be not nearly good enough. I think that's one of the arguments we've seen over the past few pages.

The idea that there is a problem with the atmosphere within the squad doesn't really tally with anything we know about Hurst's previous teams here and at Shrewsbury, for example. (No idea about his time at Ipswich or Scunny, however.)

We started the season with some decent results, nicking a winner here and there, somewhat fortunately coming from behind to beat Barnet and playing well to come from behind to beat Torquay and Wrexham. We then started playing better (defeat against Bromley aside) during the subsequent games which propelled us to the top of the division and were playing some good stuff and getting the goals our play deserved. The odd defensive lapse here and there was overcome by the attacking success.

However, the important thing to note is that, during those games, we only beat 1 team currently above us in the table. During the bad run of results, 5 of the teams above us have beaten us. As I've said before, the margins have been very close and we certainly didn't 'deserve' to lose some of those games, but lose them we did. Without the problems with injury, illness and suspension, I suspect we'd have won or drawn a few of those games, but that's the way things have gone with our slightly thin squad. Heck, we've still got a positive goal difference despite the terrible run of results over the past few months!

We weren't as good as we thought we were earlier in the season. We're not as bad now as the recent results would indicate.

No doubt that some new signings (and hopefully a bit of luck with injuries) are required, but I'm still hoping for a play-off place come the end of the season.

Let's hope Amos is the first of several good signings and a good alternative to Hunt can be found providing we aren't going to get him back here.

I suppose it's a bit easier if you aren't under a transfer embargo!

Good point, our main problem is scoring goals.  Early season when we conceded I generally felt we could get back in the game, but now it’s back to last seasons feeling that if we go 1-0 down that’s game over
