If you don't practice such things in training and when you come to a game and no one knows whose meant to be in the wall, these things happen.

No, any 12 year old would know the basics of the wall.

Neither Demetriou or Labadie were prepared to get hit by the ball - tells me neither wants to play for this management team as their history suggests they are tougher than that.

No we are not - we are in free fall - no tactics- no motivation in the players - no idea how to manage a game- a manager who is wasting what money we have with s@@@ signings. We will be broke and non league if we do not sack Flynn now. It is a shame he had a legacy which will end up destroyed.


How on earth will sacking the manager now prevent us from becoming broke. Agree that our signings since Jan have been an expensive disaster, but they are here for the remainder of the season, like it or not, then the vast majority of the squad will be out of contract in a couple of months.

A decent finish with some tactics and engaged players will help generate income for next year - season tickets, sponsorship etc. At the moment Flynn is driving us to oblivion and only a change in management will reverse it - players don’t want him clearly.

Have you seen all the sponsorship deals the club has done over the past few weeks?

Well appointing a Sporting Director that Flynn can't work with would certainly hasten his departure... :grin:

Sacking Flynn would do nothing. If he left, our decline into non-league football would simply be accelerated still further, probably by someone who couldn't give a flying one about the club. I understand these past few months have been tough - however, ultimately, who the hell would want to manage us?

No, the real responsibility is on the players. I mean, not being able to jump properly for a free-kick - come on, that's the most basic of the basic stuff. Why does one cut inside take out the majority of our defence?

Yes no detail published and it occurs to me that signing deals when you don’t know what league you are in is maybe not the best strategy, unless there is an escalator clause, not that we will be L1 !
But if you are happy with what you are seeing and believe Flynn is the man that is fine.

It is the job / responsibility of the management to get the players to play. Don’t kid yourself about Flynn he will go anywhere the money is - I don’t blame him but don’t think he is any more loyal to the club than anyone else would be whilst employed.

Have to agree the gamble of spending, undoubtedly lots of money for Maynard and Ledley, has been a disaster to date. Ledley mostly anonymous today. Although it was a poor defensive display 2nd half that cost us the game today.


To be fair to both those players, I doubt they have ever played at a club where the manager does zero work on tactics, shape etc during the week. During the past fortnight we had the first real opportunity since the new players arrived to work on tactical stuff, instead they had two lengthy breaks and a competitive 11 v 11 game in the middle of it.

The players may well have needed a break after two games a week for long periods, but at least do some stuff on the whiteboards, video room or out on the training ground.

Getting sponsorship deals well in advance of the new season is 100% the way to go.
I'm not exactly happy with what I am seeing but still believe Flynn has something to offer us and I'm not going into a meltdown like you.

Who's the managerial tactical genius that buys only great players within a tight budget you had in mind to take over ?

Didn't see today's match. Whatever happens in the remaining games, the squad needs a rebuild. It will be easier to assemble a competetive squad for a season in League Two than one to struggle in the league above. Eighth place would do nicely, but I think we will struggle to finish that high.

Before the season yes but if you were selling sponsorship and pricing it would you differentiate between a L2 product and a L1 product that is my point. My concern is that there are some sharp operators who have obtained a great deal from us - good luck to them and thank you for the support but potentially poor County business.
I am not in meltdown but today is yet another game where the players don’t appear to be trying for the management or are confused about what they should be doing - how long can it go on.
Add to this Flynn’s treatment of some players Baker - LK one mistake and banished, Farkey now appears to be having same treatment.
Panic substitutions and no idea how to change formation to change the momentum of a game.
All managers have a shelf life - Flynn looks worn down - something needs to happen.

No, not before the season, now is the right time to get the deals made. Perhaps you might want to just give the commercial manager a tiny bit of credit in that he has factored in amounts depending on which league we will be in, after all, it's his job.

I’ve mentioned before so much for an in depth squad.
What’s the point when Baker, Gambin, Evans, DLK, Hartigan are getting next to no game time.
I don’t suppose there will be wholesale changes in the side for Monday.
Although someone will have to come in for MD.

This club has had a high profile with cup runs,why would we struggle to get managers wanting to come here.
