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.
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

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.

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

TW has got broad shoulders and Iím sure he will do whatever he can to get us back on track. As it stands we are a pretty much assured a play off place. If things donít go well in the next two games, I donít think it would do any good parting with TW. He didnít manage to keep us up last season, so he has something to prove this season, let him get on with it and see the season through.

Itís Fylde by the way.

Well that was utter s**t
Blame refs , pitch .. how about today we blame the manager and players absolutely clueless at Times  resorting to hoof ball chasing the game TW decides to take off ponch and cosgrave and replace our front line with no pace or urgency, should off got his boy off at HT and got stephens on sooner , TW seems heís losing the plot all this chasing refs has lost its appeal get on with getting behind the players not chasing officials , our bubbles burst and behind the scenes something isnít right .. be lucky to be top 3 for the playoffs
Something isn't right you say?That was clear by the exchange of words by two individuals in the second half who should know better! I heard a rumour just before kick off that there had been a massive row between the media guy and the Chairman, so then to hear what loads must have heard just beggars belief!
Who was in charge of the Club  when the only two owners were away on their jolly?

I couldn't make today, but intrigued who the "two individuals in the second half who should know better" are??

Also, what impact would an argument between the media guy and SC have on the days result??

Not disputing anything you say Joey B, just curious on what has happened and any impact

I must say the managers decisions lately are weird🤔 particularly the use of ponticelli.....
Without doubt the injuries to the midfield contingent has hit us hard, but why has coulson etc
Imploded ?  Trying hard here to envisage a play off scenario,  but it doesn't look favourable 😟

Once again, too many defenders for a game that needed a win.  People are waking up to that fact, but TW is too safety-first.  We have 5 defenders in most games, plus a gk, leaving only 5 players to get at the opponents.  The Dillathon has been predicting this problem ever since the glow started to dim.  And Barrett must start, but as part of either a 4 or 5 man midfield.  Thatís where the problem is - No nipsters or creators in midfield.  We should make the play-offs, but weíre definitely not creative enough for the NL. Too many points lost away, due to defensive selections.

Finally someone has noticed. Paul Jones is the problem. Rarely leaves his penalty area and never enters the opposition half. Just invites the opposition onto us. Start Zain Walker instead.

What is Walker like between the sticks ? ( I know you mean Aaron) I guess Walker was injured Saturday as he wasnít in the squad.
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

Is there anyone there to do anything about anything? Last week i left two messages and emailed with a ticketing query. No big deal of itself but indicative of how inept the off field operation is.

Supporters = human mushrooms!

Full time professional club.
Yet no-one to answer the phone or emails, most of the time.
As well as ticket sales,  what else might the club be missing?
Potential sponsors would give up
