Where does everybody think we need strengthening? I would say a GK to push RCC - allowing Henry to go out on loan (assuming Vigs does go) & two forward players, specifically a target man if we are to persist with long ball as this is simply not Norris' game. May also require CB cover. Was there ever a mention of any involvement for Conroy at some stage or was the injury definitely a season ender?

I'd suggest another centre half (although not sure if Taylor can play there) and a striker, and maybe a wide player, with the injuries clearing up in the next few weeks hopefully that will give us enough for the rest of the season, the only other area would have to be GK as I'd like to see Henry out on loan with a run of games

I doubt we'll be doing strengthening as such... one out one in being the modus operandi.  So H Smith went, which freed up a loan slot for Banks, which given the injury to Linganzi was timely. If Vigs can be unloaded that will free up a slot, but I don't see many takers.  If Keshi signs that will free up another loan slot, and I'd be looking at another midfielder.

Smith, H. needs replacing, for sure. Iíd be happy keeping Henry as back up. Dunn needs replacing. The return of Elsnik will be a great boost.

Can Purkiss play emergency CB? Iíd also like a proper RWB. Knoyle is developing OK, but Iandolo needs to be CM.

All in all, weíre doing OK. Itís just dreadful to watch.

Which is presumably why you no longer go...

Apathy seems to have enveloped the entire club and fan base, with people, like me, just shrugging their shoulders and deciding not to turn up any more.

Pretty much. I would have gone Saturday but got the flu bug.

I enjoyed my one and only away game at Yeovil, but away performances arenít that important as a travelling fan as long as the result goes your way.

I used to wheedle out of things to get to a match - now, it seems I take any excuse not to go.

We're a club with an average Div 4 budget, therefore the standard of football is bound to be lower.... decent players cost a lot and some of them aren't that clever.

Flitters for now has halted the slide, and rebuilding the club in an upward direction is going to take time, but despite like yourself many on here favouring a change of manager, to get a more expansive style, some small signs of progress are detectable.

9 out of 10 STFC fans prefer result over entertaining performances.  FACT.

(based on a poll of 75).

Good

Football is a competitive sport, sport is about winning.

If you want entertainment there are plenty of other activities that statisfy that desire

I agree to a large extent. That's why I chucked a poll up, thought I was in the minority!

But I have to confess I wouldn't want us to play this way year on year stuck in division 4. That said, its kind of moot, if we get stuck in division 4 we will presumably go through a manager or two who will inevitable bring their own 'unique' styles.

Completely left field but, on paper, a very solid signing.

Northampton fans have a great deal of good to say about him. Sounds promising, let's hope he still has his mojo at 35.

Scored an awful lot of goals for the Cobblers over the years, but 35 years of age?
