    Come 5pm next Saturday and defeat at Brackley (biggest game of the season, cement their place in play offs) Would put ourselves under a lot of pressure for Tamworth home

    yet to see us handle pressure of the big team in town except Hereford away. If Tamworth win at at a decent Warrington i’d be getting nervous

    That second goal could be very costly, can’t say we didn’t deserve that because we did. We looked so good for 30 minutes, we just need to be ruthless. The minute substitutions are made we lose all flow, there was only going to be one team score second half.

    Kelly for Roberts was a daft one, we didn’t need another full back on, if the had brought the other central defender on or a like to like for Roberts we may have won, we invited pressure and let it slip

    We could finish 14th and Dean would get a free pass with our supporters

    As I type, I’m hoping that Darlo can grab a goal and pinch a point from their game with Tamworth.

    If we beat the Lambs and win our game in hand, then we may be back to parity?

    sad to say looking that way – can say long way to go all you like, we’re a long way behind. Anything less than a win next week don’t see anything but play-offs

    Even those amongst us with the most optimistic, positive, flag waving, cheery outlook must know that if we lose at home next week… then it’s the play offs.

    Was brought in by David the Fraudster to do a job. Did the 1st part with ease – we got relegated.

    The 2nd part – you decide.

    Oh ye of little faith. Best player out injured, second best player gone back to Hearts, leading goalscorer suspended, numerous squad players farmed out on loan, It would have been more surprising if we’d won.
    We are still in the brown stuff financially, evidenced by the transfer embargo and Roberts revealing he paid for his own operation.
    There’s still 19 games to play. I will back the board, manager, coaches and players to give it a good shot and not start panicking yet.

    2/5ths of the season to go.
    19 games – everything to play for.
    Come on Jimbob, your ‘system’ ain’t working. Time to change it… whilst we’ve still time.

    More about being frustrated than panicking TJO, most us wanted and expected us to be in the playoffs come end of season, and that’s about a fair position we deserve on what I’ve seen, in all honesty we’ve never consistently looked liked a team that would win the League, haven’t seen a team to be frightened of even if it is the playoffs so other than being frustrated and not pushing on I’m happy after what we’ve enjoured of late.

    Let’s not. Possibly offer him a coaching position but a lot to ask to stick him in as manager with no experience. I wouldn’t mind Nelson back, I thought he was fantastic with what little he had to work with.

    The style of football was very easy on the eye at times and gave us freedom to attack.

    Where has the sudden Butterfield for manager idea come from. Has he any coaching qualifications or experience? Is he interested in coaching?

    He is a fine footballer and I love to watch him play but have seen no evidence of any leadership qualities or any desire to influence or direct his team mates.

    Many players way better than Jacob have made bloody awful managers.

    Only seen Rene advocating it. I’ve no idea of his coaching skills, abilities, qualifications or desire to coach.
