    On the plus side at last a proper results page in the programme! Good one too, so congrats to the person responsible. I need something to lift my spirits. This season looked so good as well...sad, sad, sad.

    Somehow got to get this season back on track. The facebook group is raging and whilst we've got endeavour on the pitch we can turn it around. Need some cool heads to sort out the on pitch stuff and talking to draw a line under the off pitch stuff. Frustrating!!!

No reason why we couldn't beat Tamworth today and again Parker going off injured led to an enforced change but we just sat deep and gave them space. Really disappointed and what with the self inflicted stuff off the pitch........
    Got to question SW tactics.Best CB not even on the bench..again?
    After last season I really thought we would kick on 2016 /17 Yet, a third in this season we look like a team so ,so miss jointed all over the pitch.
    Said along we were a team in a false position.Did I lie?
    3-4-3... what a load of shite...

    Thought 1st half we were value for money, not overly convinced on the formation but their 3rd goal killed us. It was a matter of time then. Ainge for me was MoM. Have to see if the hairdryer approach works!

    Did you not notice the page where Mr Communication decided to write a patronising article about a group of loyal fans? Seriously below the belt and a kick in the teeth for fans who travel home and away to support the team. He needs to go asap he is like poison and hence the rage on the Facebook page.

    Time for cool heads everywhere. Need to draw a line and reset both on and off the pitch. Really disappointed with how things are turning out at the moment. Should be focused on the team and results and not infighting and rear guard actions. It's in no ones interest, least of all the club and it's supporters. I would encourage folk to attend the Supporters Group meeting where issues can be discussed with a view to hopefully getting this car crash back on the road.

    I only referred to the results page Trev. Agree totally about that article, it made my blood boil. There is I fear a rather unpleasant authoritarian streak manifesting itself.They want us all to be nice, obedient cheer leaders for 'the project'. They have no understanding of football supporters, we can be a bit bolshie, especially if our team keeps losing!

    It might or it might not. Can only use the mechanisms that are currently present though.

    I see our manager has thrown his Teddy out of his pram after the loss on saturday blaming the players .Surely with 4 people in the dugout they should be able to control it themselves. Maybe we need 8 in there to really sort it out .Most teams have only 2  and seem to be ok.

    Thought his comments were spot on.
    They had a long session indoors this morning before coming out to train.  Maybe a few home truths and honesty from the players.
    Since we seem to be lumping everything under the heading of West Riding County Cup, I see we are at home to the Class of 92's toy team in the FA trophy.

    Whats the good of all the instructions from the 4 in the dug out if they play like that . Maybe they need a loudspeaker to be heard.

    That was one of the points he made. Suggest you listen to it again.
    Maybe he got his point across to the players in the two hours they spent behind closed doors this morning.

    This is still a good squad of players, but desperately need a win for confidence (and points!). And need Kerry and JPP back full time.

    My point is if things are going wrong then surely with 4 in the dugout they should be able between them to change things instantly or what's the use of being there.
