Re: Ebbsfleet Away

First-half was dreadful as has been said but at least there was a marked improvement in our mentality if nothing else in the second-half. Then again you can't be throwing five forwards on every week - and it doesn't bode particularly well that even with all of those on we still didn't score from ope...

Re: Who would you replace Taylor with?

I'd probably avoid Strevs for the mo. Done a great job with Eastleigh so far but I'd be wary of appointing someone off the back of around 12 months managerial experience given the situation we're in currently. Suppose there's a positive to be taken from the fact that whoever gets the job will have n...

Re: GARRY HILL

You all know how this club works. And I am absolutely convinced that if Hill comes in short-term he'll be rewarded with an extended contract in the summer. Is that what any of us want, or what this club needs?

Re: GARRY HILL

We cannot appoint Garry Hill. Are we a club going forwards or going backwards? Because you know what happens if we appoint him, he'll be given a short-term deal until the summer, he'll keep us up and then the owners will almost certainly be persuaded into extending his contract into next season and ...

Re: Do the yanks really care ?

There's no questioning that the owners care. The money they've put into the playing budget and into making the club look presentable and up-to-date in it's facilities is evidence of that, not least the way in which they interact with supporters when they're over and on social media. But that doesn't...

Re: Injured Players

The lack of communication when it comes to injured players is - and long has been - a joke. I've been told before that the club hold this information back so as to not give the opposition an advantage when they're preparing to play us. If true, it's a load of bollocks. Not only does it treat us supp...

Re: 1 WIN IN EIGHT.

We got what we deserved yesterday for going there and setting up to try and nick a point. If we're a side that allegedly is meant to be pushing top-seven, that's not how you set up against a team who have been shipping goals for fun. Taylor was brought in at the start of last season to work with a s...

Re: Peter must go!

Agree Adrian. The league position could easily be anywhere between about 5th and 20th because the league is so volatile. It's more about what we're seeing when we come to watch. I wanted Wayne gone even when we were mid table in league two because it was tedious. I could see it would eventually fal...

Re: Barnet game

Strange game. At the end I was tempted to say that a point was fair, but given how we played in the first-half, I'm a little disappointed we didn't take all three. Matt Robinson, in particular, was exceptional in that first 45. He was getting around the pitch,breaking up the play and knocking some f...

Re: Agenda against Taylor

I’ve posted elsewhere about my thoughts on Taylor but touching on something DTD said, I know a few people not bothering without tomorrow either. Again, this isn’t about anyone being reactionary towards three defeats in four, we’ve had worse or similar starts in the past and that hasn’t stopped those...

Re: Taylor out !!

If you want to get out of this division - which is the ultimate aim for our owners - then you need a manager capable of getting the job done. Look at the last 10 managers to achieve promotion from this league... Graham Alexander Justin Edinburgh John Askey Micky Mellon Danny Cowley Mark Cooper Gary ...

Re: Hornchurch friendly

Was at the West Ham game last night and the Hornchurch game today and I thought we zipped it around pretty well at times. Good close control, spreading the play and it showed with the opening goal this afternoon which was well-worked and finished off nicely by Luque. That said, and despite scoring t...

Re: New Kit

All I will say is that if I hadn't already renewed my season ticket, I would take this as a sign that it's time to move on from the club and not renew. Come on now. Most supporters don’t like it but this isn’t Vincent Tan and Cardiff we’re talking about. This is a stop-gap cock-up that isn’t ideal....
