Get real
« on: January 29, 2022, 08:54:55 PM »
Anyone expecting any other result today must be living in cloud cuckoo land.  Give credit where credit is due, we tried and can only use the the players we have.  Do you really expect better results against the top echelon clubs of the league, no, of course not.  Hopefully we can against the lower based clubs in future fixtures.  Support the club and still hope some reward for the reminder of the season, not keep finding fault and undermining what good people in the Club are trying to achieve.  Stop being so critical, it doesnít help management or players.

A decent striker wouldnít have stopped us shipping 3 goals yesterday.   People seem to have this idea that one striker would turn our season.

How can anyone feasibly expect a top striker to want to move to a flatshare for 400 a week in the sticks, single handedly overcome a 14 point gap and save the season?

I think people expect miracles. Boreham wood result in my opinion pretty much draws the curtains on our season. Not being pessimistic but more realistic. I think people blaming is Tommy is a little uncalled for. What do you expect him to do with shower of crap inherited? Yes we can all see we need a goalscorer but again a goalscorer doesn't stop us shipping goals in. We need to shift the deadwood from the squad but that in its self is not a easy task. I don't think any step 2 or possibly even step 3 club would want them. The other option is is pay them out of their contracts which then leaves the club in a bigger financial state than it already is.

The position the club finds it self in coupled with our location no top striker is really going to want to come here without coming for bug bucks in my opinion. I honestly dont know what the solution could be all i know is its going to be a long rest of the season if we carry on the way we are going. UTFL

Sending some of the loaners would be a start to reducing costs.  Can see how foolhardy it was to give anything beyond 12 month contracts to any player last summer.

Probably the only one that's worth a two year deal in current circumstances.

I have to agree in regards of Barrett. I think he is going to be a real star for us (when fully fit). Altintop we havent seen anything of at all and i think hes contracted until 2023.

Then you have the situation with King. Is he at any point coming back? I know very little has been said about his situation which if i remember correctly is health related.

I think we are missing Jordan Richards in midfield i honestly believe we wouldn't be shipping so many goals in if we had him and a jarvis type character in front of the back 3/4

Barrett.  Then Altintop and Charles are two more

3 of the Owner's speculative signings.
Possibly Barrett's current record indicates that he may not be in peak saleable condition inside the duration of his contract.
So far, the others have not showed at the required level. Yet, if the players are capable, they need a coach with the ability to develop them for the Owner to 'turn a profit'.

I thought we have A graded coaches. Trouble with football contracts is players are paid for failing

What we need is to try another tack.
Bring back Henry Eze and put him up front, cause he didnt know what he was doing so how caould the opposition know?
We could always have the managers other son Kia, he could dance around them a bit and cause all sorts of confusion.
