Absolutely "nailed on" must win game. Anything less than 3 points and I'm afraid PH will have to take a long hard look at himself.

Altrincham have exactly the same recent form as us (lost 5 drawn 1) so without wanting to state the obvious, 3 points really is a must.

Agreed. This isn’t a Watford case or something where they puzzlingly sack their manager whilst sitting 14th in the PL and everyone says - well where did they expect to be??

Defeat on Saturday and you would have to say he’s not achieving anything near where he should be and ultimately failing at his job.

I wonder how much longer the owners will give Hurst before the continual poor form means his position is untenable.

I'm not saying I want him to go, far from it, but just how much more can the owners take before they have to act.

Bromley and Wrexham up after this one too so this absolutely has to be a win. No excuses.

Would probably avoid building this up as a “win or you’re sacked” game for Hurst because I think it’s pretty clear he’s going absolutely nowhere, certainly not in the middle of a transfer window.

Management expectation so as to not be disappointed if we do lose.

At what point does it get nasty on the terraces?

I’m going to presume that we won’t be in any danger of relegation. I suspect that the board may prefer to stick with the current managerial set up to the end of the season, even if we bounce around between 7th and 14th.
It’s difficult to know the details of what the relationship is between Hurst/Doig and JS/AP but I get the impression that they’re looking for stability/continuity if they can, and are prepared to take a long term view. The challenge there is that they will then come under pressure from large portions of the fan base if the results continue to be substandard. Personally I find this tricky too and there is a degree of conflict - I don’t think recent results are acceptable. I don’t think mid/lower table is acceptable. I don’t think we should accept mediocrity. But……I do understand that continuity can be the platform you need to build a proper challenge and that it takes time. Paul Hurst is a good manager, and is very well thought of by those who have worked for him - I know that for a fact. Losing the number and quality of players we have in recent weeks is really disappointing and unhelpful. A succession of further poor results from this point will make things really toxic and then our chances will be further limited. We need players and we need results. And quick.
