It was such a shame he couldnít keep pace with stuff off the field to match the on field exploits. Then again a lot of that was down to the people he employed.   Ultimately the buck stops with SC.

When the full financial picture is revealed will tell us how good a job he has done.



"Down to the people he employed"?
  I trust you mean the ones that were announced in a fanfare and then never heard of again.  Rather than some of the more recent departures who put up with the Owner's hopeless interference far longer than most could have endured.       (And some of the remaining, longstanding, virtual 'volunteers' still working hard against the odds)


One of the (many) definitions of the "Peter Principle"?  :dontknow:

A recipe for disaster unless "Parkinson's law" is applied by any individuals it effects.

Problem is, the latter is usually something that the former haven't got the ability to do.

Well the FOtLSC are planning several events in the coming mths including nights with Ex players,group nights etc you will be hearing a lot more from Griss you is now our Events Manager and is doing a great job. We are trying to get fans more involved with the FOTLSC and I know it wonít be easy to win them over in these trying times but at least we are trying to do something different

Thanks Malcolm.

When it comes to enthusiasm for such things, Griss is your man. He won't keep his head down just because the going gets tough.

By the way, did you ever get that on line application form sorted? Did/are the Club co-operating and helping you with that?

Iíve got to say for all he has done for the club, ok heís got a lot of the things wrong sometimes not all his fault, I really think the page has been turned. We now have a catering manager who really knows whatís sheís doing ie the bar pricing is pulling in customers and food is now available. We have a new Team Manager who I hope will turn the results around so my answer will be yes

Too little too late?   :dontknow:


Nice to see you posting again Malcolm. Not heard anything about Fotls recently. Any updates on what they are doing and have achieved since you last posted about them? We see and hear what Grissles has been up to, but not a lot else.

The Chairman said in one of his podcasts ( whatever happened to those ?) that there was plethora of ex League players floating about out there who would come for £400 a week.  Now was that just wishful thinking on his part ?

Have we ever considered that the reason Tommy hasnít signed a striker is that he lacks the connections ?  So far he has brought in a left back ( Denton is now back fit), his boy from step 3 ( I bet no one saw that coming). Plus two coaches. 

Sorry to say but it all feels a little underwhelming.  Next two games look very significant in the both the Clubs and Tommyís future.

Did TW do a pre or post match interview for the Tonbridge game ?

Do you think there's a chance he was the unseen force behind the Barrett signing?

At the moment I really wouldn't be surprised if the Chairman was looking to reduce outgoings, not increase them by signing a really good striker (no point in signing an average one).

I understand the potential short and long term effects of not bringing a striker in, and I'm sure he will be more aware than most. It must be a very difficult decision for him, but really not helped when there's so much talk and very little action (at least action we can see or have been informed of).

There's for and against spending more money at the moment. Without a striker I think most will agree we are doomed and will lose our NL status. With signing a striker and the increase in costs it brings, if it doesn't work out it could be the the thing that just pushes us over the brink (and then we could lose more than just our NL status).

Very, very difficult and as always, time will tell.

As a matter of interest what was Simon Clarkís record as Manager at the Club ?   I recall he was sacked after drawing with lower League opposition in a Cup tie. Hmmmmm

We've got no Backie and Fryatt to fall back on this time. They won the replay very easily if memory serves me well.

Don't think they had any problems finding us a certain striker either.

As I said previously hope he hasn't been reading the same book on bull**** as SC

Maybe he's been given an autographed copy from the author.

Not writing him off, can see him jacking it in before the season ends. Just get the feeling he is here for something to occupy him for while until something better comes along. Time will tell. Been lots of rheteric, that has masked the fallout of the results, which have been no better than IC would have done. No decent signings since appointment, despite saying they would be forthcoming. Signed his son, bravo. Plenty of yap, not a lot of content. Hopefully i'm proved wrong, we' ll see.

I can't see him jacking it in that quickly. That's unless there's a really massive fall out. I would think every Manager at this level hopes that something better comes along. If that happens its usually because the Managers history is showing something that other Clubs appreciate and want.

Yes, have to question the lack of signings following his statement a couple of weeks ago. Then, it all sounded like a done deal.  :dontknow:

The way it came across Tony is that Gold didnít fit the system of IC and in a few short weeks TW has waved a magic wand and turned him into what we are missing. Not sure how you feel but Iím not convinced Gold is a NLP player no matter what the system.

Just maybe Tommy is convincing himself and anyone who will listen that Gold is the answer to his striking problem and doesnít need to bring anyone else in.

Also on the subject of having to many of the same Ďtypeí of player then we can expect a few to be on the way. Presumably.

If you can't find a decent striker to sign, there's nothing wrong in bigging up the confidence of the ones you already have. Motivational Management.   :scarf:

Would it be worth TW having a word with Rob Back and ask him to help out for a couple of weeks or so to bring in a couple of strikers.   Robbie would have a black book full of names.  Got to be worth Tommy taping into that knowledge if he is struggling to find one himself

Makes sense. We were told Backie was taking s break so have to assume heíll be back at sometime anyway.

Didnít Backie find Marriot for us?

Woking game called off due to waterlogged pitch and weather forecast not brilliant over the next few days.

What are the chances of the Notts County (rearranged) game on Tuesday evening going ahead? Mind you they will have all day to get the mops, buckets and brushes working.


......and to mobilise the abled body and willing volunteers.

Let's hope they are on to it now, and a call for assistance isn't made at 11 o'clock Tuesday morning.

I wonder how today's players would have coped on what used to be normal playing conditions for this time of year....Sometimes the surface was akin to a.ploughed field.

Baseball Ground?

Produced a winning team.  :cup2:



In fairness, I think most people in the Chairmans position would have left it to as late as possible, in the hope that it would be possible to play the game. I doubt very much that the Club can continue to pile up these loses as a result of no income being generated, so I do understand his thinking on this one.

Over the years we've all seen games go ahead that probably should not have done, and games called off that could have possibly gone ahead.


............but club doesn't do itself any favours with posts like "covers due to come of at 1pm but early reports are very good" ...........


I didn't see that but yes, probably not the most sensible thing to post.
