The football could be better but Iím loving the fact I can go to watch Town home and away, and meet up with old pals.

Frankly, and considering the bigger picture, I donít give a shit about the style, especially eight league games into a season that not long ago looked like it might never happen.

So many also missing the point that we havenít got a pot to piss in and a massive debt was left by the parasite.
If our crowds hold up I am sure the purse strings will be eased in January enabling us to strengthen, albeit a little.

In a much better place than expected and that is from the club itself.



Are you saying we canít afford goal bonuses so are trying not to score too many?

WTF. You can clearly read, so what prompts a question is that? Iíd be absolutely gobsmacked if anyone else thought what youíre implying. As Victor Meldrew would say ďI donít believe itĒ.

Break even crowds to satisfy current debt 8,000.
We are doing ok.

The main topic of conversation has been our style of play and lack of attacking edge.
Then DoB comes in talking about how we havenít got a pot to piss in.


Now explain how lack of money means we cant move the ball forward and attack more often?
Then youíll do the maths just like I did.

I had a quick look at the league 2 table this morning and Tranmere Rovers who sit one place and one point behind us have a paltry 4 league goals in 8 this season. Obviously the leading goalscorers, FGR and LO lead the way with 18 and 16 goals scored.

I think the recruitment says we do, indeed, have a pot to piss in. This isnít a squad assembled full of journeymen, lower league hoofers. Thereís some genuine talent in there. Itís a bit unfair burdening a 19 year old in his first full season as our spearhead but heís doing fine. Garner just needs to trust the players a bit more and not be so regimented and anal about possession being the be all and end all.

Weíve looked so much better when we are genuinely having a go. Just donít understand why it takes until the 2nd half before we do.

So how does what you have just posted correlate to not being able to pay win bonuses that you Ďsuggestedí DIB was saying in his post? He clearly said, implied or suggested no such thing.

Agreed. That said, isn't it better to have these kind of conversations than the ones we have been having over the last 6 months or so?

I think you are taking his point too literally. All DV was saying (I think) was that if it is true that we don't have a pot to piss in (which in itself is debatable)...that has nothing to do with our failure on the field in the final third of the pitch. The point about not wanting to pay win/goal bonuses was an ironic, not literal one.

This is so painful
Yes it is.

Agreed...and if we were just a team of hoofers and journeymen, I'd be very much in the "Ooooh...I'm just glad to have a team to support / I'll be happy to stay up" camp. But we're not so I struggle to understand that viewpoint. Garner is holding this team back and I don't understand why or what he is afraid of.
