Two teams in disarray and imploding I’m afraid - going for a rough and ready 1-1 draw with 509 in attendance. Not me, done foot in - and yes it could well be foot and (or in) mouth before anybody else says it

And thanks for asking - it’s very slowly getting better

Another defeat

Unless the injuries have suddenly dried up, it’s difficult to be overly positive but the kids largely acquitted themselves well Tuesday. If they do that again and we get a bit of luck, we might nick something.

I’m going to be very positive and optimistic and say 2-0. Attendance 460 as they won’t bring many fans and ours are giving up.

Good play first half. Plenty of possession. Thought we could have this. Must have had an inspirational halftime talk. Came out and fell apart. Smith deserved man of match for his hard work in defence and support when he could upfront. The future isn’t bright.

Thought we were poor all game and didn’t deserve to win the game. How can we have if we didn’t have any shots. I’m presuming all our injured players are out until the end of the season as not much seems to be being said about when they’ll be back. Also why was the stand behind the goal shut? Can only presume it’s laziness and the same can’t be arsed attitude our players have.

They close the stand so they can have all the stewards guarding the seats (heaven forbid someone tries to sit without paying their pound). Of course the stewards guarding the segregation gate could actually be the stewards used to allow people behind the goal. At none of the away grounds I have visited this season have we not been able to stand behind a goal and these are grounds where there were hardly any stewards. The hierarchy need to realise what level we are at and stop thinking we are higher. I won't get started on the stupid yellow markings needed to allow access.

Never known such a low time at this club. It gets worse by the week.

Everywhere you look, even long-standing fans totally demoralised ...a number seem to have stopped coming the past few weeks.

So demoralised with where the club is and where we are heading. Been a fan for over 20 year but never felt this disillusioned with the club. I dont blame Dennis, i think its too easy to blame a manager who has inherited a below par squad that lacks hunger and drive. Where do we go from here? With the amount of injuries we could very realistically be facing yet anothet relegation battle. Ffs.

Demoralising is the right word. Don’t think we lacked for effort but just really hard to watch us struggling like that. Got to hope it’ll turn.

A good first  half today and although Stratford upped their game second half we still had plenty of possession.Trouble is 4 /5 shots in 90 mins,none working the keeper,is just no good enough.I know they did little better but at least they got one on target.Dont see the return of injured players is going to help as we have been poor all season.Must remain optmistic but its not looking good.

I’m wondering if some of these players are injured or has DG just fell out with them and we’ll just say they’re injured to keep things easier.

I think they genuinely are injured but was having a discussion in clubhouse post match yesterday (was a bit like a Samaritans session to be honest) and were discussing whether despite the obvious financial advantages of the 3G, it has had an effect on the number of injuries we have sustained. There is major debate on this in rugby league which I also follow and some players don’t like to play at Widnes because of injury issues.
I’m not offering this as an excuse but it certainly feels to me like we have picked up more in the last couple of seasons generally. You can’t put things like jas’ gashed leg down to it but joint injuries/strains are a different matter.
It’ll take someone more knowledgeable than me to analyse it properly but I do wonder.

Before anyone says it I know it isn’t getting ripped up and i’m not proposing that. Just wonder if it’s worth looking into the science behind it and things we could do to mitigate.

End of the day, Bob Andrews isn't going to get rid of the 3G. It's making him money and I personally think that's all he cares about...

Getting rid of the slope was a stupid idea so we have no home advantage and teams outplay us with the ball on the floor.

Well his money will be dwindling down if we get a second consecutive relegation, which looks like a very realistic prospect now, I don’t blame the fans for staying away, we are not exactly getting value for money, I still believe sacking Morrell was a brainless decision and we have suffered massively since then.

- If Sir Bobs total ambition was to make money in any venture why the continue to pile in money into a non-league club - even friggen Debenhams has more chance of getting a better return! - Scum and Pies FC have a 4 year cycle of going bust - weve had £1millon plus Sir Bob dosh in stopping that happening. Now there’s an argument that with better Management choices we could be higher in the leagues but worse on the downside without the dosh being demoted 4 or so leagues like Hereford or Salisbury - you pay the money and take your choice bwmtfc

Whatever Bob Andrews faults, he can't be accused of not backing this club financially. As Argus says, he has put in about a million of his hard earned up to now. In it to make money? you're having a laugh.
