I actually have a lot of sympathy for Stephen Cleeve.  Seems he has bent over backwards to support Tommy with whatever he has asked for.  This is how he is repays, being really shafted and left in the solids.   
Agree there mallard
Every time he shouted he got even this week with the new arrival,  canít understand how heís jump /jumping ship with 6 games and play offs and get us promoted to put him in shop window  :countingmoney: :countingmoney: :countingmoney: :countingmoney: :nilpoints:  sad case of todays game has become

And there was Tommy just a few weeks ago telling the media that the town and supporters needed to get behind the team! Sums up so much of what i have come to dislike about modern football. 'Badge kissing' means bugger all.
Spot on  .. money talks nowadays if thatís what he wants then let him go,  glad in someways  yea heís done well but imo but weíll cope without him imo heís seems to be losing it on and off the fieldÖ

Why do people keep talking about  IC's side. It's history, you can't compare the two different sides.  Yes we've lost our way and have done so for several weeks. However we got relegated under IC and have a better side this year in my opinion. Team selection not always correct but we are still in with a chance! maybe!  :scarf:
Cully side would whip a TW side any day of the week . Nothing against Tommy heís done well but personally heís not a happy man and would be very surprised if heís here next season . Heís getting like cully though and not changing when all can see itís not happening for some players on the pitch .

Think York brought in excess of 1000 supporters not 24 you have to compare like for like. Don't think recruitmet has been poor ists trying to replace the injured players has been poor however do think goalkeeper last night was good.

Spot on York did bring a 1,000 but there is still the little matter of a 1200 differential between the two top of the table clashes.    I still stand by that imho the quality of the Football was far more enjoyable to watch under Culverhouse than it is under Widderington.  You may well disagree.

Absolutely spot on mallard .. people moaned at cullys play and no plan B but imo TW is in the same category now if we hadnít had such a good start our true positioning at the way weíre playing is a mid table side ,TW is no tactical genius like IC and neither is his recruitmentÖ. How many of this side can play National league if we was to go up ? 4/5 Iíd say

Last night Fylde closed our back line down to stop us playing out so we were left with the option of the keeper knocking long balls up to Gold, who won his fair share but then we are looking at playing off 2nd ball scraps.

Recruitment wise, pre-season was ok but the like you I think the players brought in since have been somewhat substandard and not anywhere near the quality of the ones we have lost.

Gold is the Clubs leading goalscorer and you guys want him benched ?  The way you are talking anyone would think Tommy doesnít know what he is doing.

You didnít come on here and say that when our leading scorer was dropped v Darlington and Doncaster Bosto   to name a few , forums about peopleís opinions and and like freelancer says we need to utilise others as lately weíre predicable .

do wonder if TW will ever change and play ponch and cosgrave up front from the start and give defenders something to think about , Barrett and Gold donít have the pace and work rate  I feel to put other teams on the back foot from the start just think weíre huffing and puffing results and know weíre being found out and donít have a plan B

I  watched him a few times when he played for Aldershot when I working down that way and thought what a terrible player, badly disciplined too, was only in the side because of his name. On Tues it was clear to all he is playing way beyond his ability. He can't dribble or take on players and his defending is dire. TW go and watch local players in Downham, Dereham or Heacham where you will see strong local men who know how to defend. What do the others think ?

I hope Aaron returns soon...

Iím in agreement with  you .. frustrating player  I came to the game and after Saturdays performance and see heís starting thought ok as he wasnít that bad , but after the first few over hit crosses and then watching him give the ball away when unable to get past the man I became frustratingly annoyed with him ,remember his first game v Doncaster he looked a prospect but it seems heís not all cracked up to what we hope,given that I was unable to see what Hughes bring but tbh last couple of games heís proved me wrong letís hope ox can turn out a bit like his bro 😂  jury still out on jj jones . Be interesting to see who we have in goal Saturday TW was in deep discussion with Blair after the game ,feel for the lad if dropped as heís come in at a  critical time .but both goals feel he may of done better .

Interesting,I do think we could advertise the club more ie signs on the main roundabouts coming into the town ,if you go to other clubs itís team is not splattered around the town in the shops or pubs .even Norwich isnít shouting about the club and their Hub shop is now closing .
Imo weíve a good 800 /1000 hard core fans , but I just think missing fans arenít knowledgeable about the standard weíre playing, you talk to a floating footy fan and say lynn v Chesterfield wouldnít mean as much if it was v Ipswich as non league fans are lynn fans so if youíve grown up supporting league team I donít think you can convert their preferencesÖ to me weíve got to get the younger generation in before they choose Man Utd or mobile phones and become bedroom supporters.
Entrance is what it is but I think in the ground is expensive food drink and club shop especially £17 for a scarf £7.50 for a badge .. get kids wearing the colours !!

There maybe players returning from injury Tony, but having listened to Tommyís post match interview it seems 3 are done for the season.

Lots more in that interview to digest as well.  Seemed like Tommy wanted to attack everything and everyone
You mention TW wanting to attack .. I sit in the stands and TW musings are quite something.. but very little encouragement comes from him very negative, I wonder if the players are stifled and scared of playing ..itís like the players are playing with hot potatoe so to speak . I honestly do wonder if is well in the dressing room .. heard Hargreavesís could be an op Olly may return soon , whereís Zain injured,dropped ?
Iím not Anti gold and I do feel at times heís a scapegoat but why ainít we attacking teams like this from the start  no pace up front and Celtic liked comfortable defending,I think with Barrett vision he could pick out ponch or cosgrave playing on the shoulder of the defence instead off hoof ball to gold .. ..suppose in TW we trust

Has anyone seen chamberlain tonight .. apparently never turned up at the ground before kick off
Ok so gold won the flick on for goal but time to try ponch  and cosgrave starting and gold super sub

Early doors I thought Theo came in for unfair criticism, up to his injury and especially Doncaster I thought he was outstanding but the whole midfield was .Clunan was back to his awesome self and I didnít realise the miles Hargreavesís was putting in  .perhaps being unfair but TW decision to play his boy V Stevenage after a hamstring thought there was a bit of  keep it in the family .
Drop Theo put in chamberlain,/Hughes  Iíd go cosgrave and ponch to start use gold as super sub and Iíd use zain more see if that makes Barrett buck his ideas up . Love Barrett but I think heís peaked in fitness bit of a luxury player but we can play 10 hoping for a peterísport moment .

Will Tommy stay if we donít get promotion ?  Interesting question.  Letís swing it around from the other end.   Will SC want to keep him if he fails ?

As far as I can see from the outside it would seem SC wants promotion.  It seems he has given TW all the ammunition he has asked for

1. Full time squad.  Tick
2. Two coaches        Tick
3. Full training facilities. Tick
4.  Overnight stays         Tick
5.  Increased squad during the season.  Tick
6.  Really good budget.  Tick.

Tommy is very good with the media.  Good copy.  However there comes a time in adversity where he is now expected to deliver.  The recent run has been poor in anyoneís book.  Next 7 days could well be pivotal.

Great answer .. hopefully this time next week Iíll be in a better mood when  TW has delivered.. but 2 defeats and I think the most loyalist of fans will be Questioning the set up

I only managed to start attending matches this season from the Darlington game.....which raised my expectations! And i haven't been to any away games. Since Darlington, at times results have flattered us. Not least against Telford when our first half performance was abysmal...As if our team had not played together before and frankly, the second half aside from the goals was not much better. We lacked cohesion and seemed strangely lethargic..Hence i asked the question about being full time at this level: positives v negatives?

Today much the same. It is far too easy to blame the pitch, injuries, the officials and even the time wasting tactics of the opposition for our disjointed, apathetic and once again lethargic performance.....and this from a full time squad!  IMO Gloucester were up for it more than we appeared to be. Why???

We also pay a premium to watch this stuff. I am 'fortunate' to qualify for a concessionary ticket but having spent £51 plus travelling costs to watch this dross over the last week, do i think i have had value for money?..Emphatically no.

I of course don't always expect us to win or even to play at our best level in every game but i do expect to see us on the front foot and giving 100%.

I sincerely hope i am wrong but the bubble appears to have burst.

Think youíve hit the nail on the head for many a fan inc myself and todayís frustration .. like you Iíve forked out £51 on tickets and travel and many a folk wouldíve spent more .
But sine Xmas if not before and especially tues night games in the freezing conditions have I been entertained NO  I went to Buxton and that was awful and now this dross !! Yes Iíll be there next tues v Buxton and hopefully Banbury.. but how much can a supporter take before crowds dwindle.

I agree John this squad would be way short in the National League, but we are playing step below that.

I thought we were poor today, despite going with an attack looking line up.  Certain players looked tired even lack lustre.  Tommy has a real job on his hands over the next seven days.  First to go to Banbury on Tuesday and put out a team to get three points.  Then to move up another level to try and get something next Saturday at Flyde.  Next Saturday night  we donít want to looking at a nine point gap between Flyde and ourselves with them also having a game in hand.   

I saw SC take his seat halfway through the first half.  It didnít take him
long to let TW have his feelings in no uncertain terms.  As you would expect Tommy wasnít just going to take it.   Letís hope they had a clear the air meeting after the game.  We donít want another IC/SC situation to appear, yet again.
Do you think TW will stay if we donít get promoted?? Thereís certainly none to many loving stares from either way at the moment ,personally SC must be worrying in our change of form and the prospects off playoff lottery and another season in NL and the cost and running of the club if we fail !! Never a dull day at the walks
