Nearly Two Years On

Post by SUSSEX DAGGER » Sat Nov 11, 2017 5:02 pm

It is nearly Two Years since the hounding out of Burnett, can People honestly say things have improved that much ?

One win in ten in a shocking League including part time teams .

A fair bit.
What's they got to do with the first question though?

I was very supportive of Still returning but was not too happy when he signed a contract for 18 months and this summer extending by 2 more years. I would have hoped a more change in personnel, someone not linked with the club previously...
The last time that happened we appinted Gary Hill and tbe club moved forward.

Why does someone have to be deluded to think we're now better off than when Burnett left the club?

It is currently a frustrating period. It may be a result business, but we've been better than many of our results suggest. This leaves me hope that things will change for us once the team can clicks again.
Not something I felt when I was at the games when we were struggling a few years ago.

What concerned me most about losing the play-offs last season would be that this season's group of teams are tougher than last. I feel like this has certainly been the case as I personally think
Hartlepool, Orient, Fylde, Maidenhead, Ebbsfleet and Halifax
are an easier selection of teams than
Lincoln, Forest Green, York, North Ferriby, Braintree and Southport.

None of the newcomers this season are in the bottom 4 presently.

I was somewhat concerned people seemed to think the upturn in form would arrive when Cheek was back, I wasn't so sure and it does appear that him alone will not be the solution to our current form.

We will probably finish lower this season and won't make the play-offs.

Think this league is about our level given the resources at our disposal and being in the bottom 25% of this league's attendance table.

i think john still has done ok , 4th last year, 8 points off top this year at moment. with burnett we would have done a York, they get double our crowds and got relegated.

and we are still above pre season favourite tranmere with treble our attendances, no need to moan at all yet.

Sussex, my pijnt was we havent moved forward even with Still at the helm. You raised the point 'Since Burnett' and i responded with my view of the last two years. We wont move on till we bring a fresh new face into the club as manager.

You might also want to check how many games we've won in the last 10 in this shocking league.
As error rates go 200% is pretty high.

In be last 10 league games we've 3 time as many as at this date in the season two years a go.

I said last 10 games which included the twice that we failed to even score against what is a very poor Leyton Orient team.

But you are right how did I forget that ground shaking effort against a Torquey , last minute penalty spared our blushes that day

You said one win in 10 in this shocking league. You don't even know what you wrote.

If that Torquay game had been under Burnett you'd have been telling us how brilliant it was.
