Loud calls for local ownership '' no foreign wealthy owners please'' locals only please

Loud calls for a very inexperienced manager/coach because we remember him as a great player . literally 2 seasons coaching before became manager .

Now suddenly they are wrong calls . . .

sod will be a top manager . new owners wanted someone who wouldn't push back too hard on funding and fans would give time .. that's happening

the ownership are obviously looking for an exit path , and unwilling to risk paying whats needed . You don't invest in a fancy shed for a house you're trying to sell

lots of criticism to go round ( including fans )
But no need for panic stations . Couple of wins can fix it .

the big lesson is being more careful what we wish / winge for

The latest excuse on lmfm interview from sod was the strong wind and long throws and they are still getting used to the league. These excuses are wearing thin at this stage .

We need to stick together and try to get through this crisis. Budget probably isn’t great but SOD asked for certain players and got them. We all wanted local owners. Team’s confidence seems shot though.

Agree. Recruitment was poor and pedigree of players apart from 1 or 2 would make u think most where a gamble. Where is Gart's role in all of this?

garts the centre half ?

might be a good coach one day , very ambitious but
attributing coaching / management ability because of someone's past playing ability is a classic way of getting into a death spiral as a club ;

sod calls the shots and should be backed to the hilt . 2 wins and it'll look far better

If at any stage we need to make a change (way down the line ) - - a stalwart loi manager needed - maybe keith long etc that has a name as a manager NOT a top past player for nostalgia reasons

Apart from a rebound shot from a penalty save, we have scored one goal in the past six games.(LSC included)
11 goals conceded in that time.
