We're a joke and we've been a joke for years on the pitch. I'm done with the current model. I'm pro WST and I think it could do well in the football league but it's clear it's taken us as far as it can go now, and we've become a circus act on the pitch. I'm fed up of inviting friends to come watch us only for them to ask me how I can do it every week.

Come on lets publicly announce the club is for sale.

Normally I try to be level headed and not worry too much about things.

But that latest statement about "maybe" signing someone rung alarm bells in my head.
Earlier this week he was positive he had done deals.

It is rapidly becoming to look from the outside in as a shambolic state of affairs. No Assistant yet has supposedly been sorted for a while. No players coming in of any quality, let alone the high quality Ricketts has spouted.

Discontent rising rapidly throughout the fanbase, Players wanting to leave (fair enough if its to a club higher up) but should we be fighting to keep these players? After all, when the retained list went out Ricketts obviously wanted them.

No backroom staff of note.

Communication from the club is contradictory, even in messages released on the same day.

If we don't start seeing QUALITY signings next week, I for one will be wondering is it worth turning up to watch next season when money could be spent elsewhere.

I know we should wait and judge him after several games, but he is not doing his status any good with this showing.

That was all the comments. Giggity, stop with the ad hominem attacks, they're getting boring. There is no bitterness. I wasn't 'set straight', even their fans are saying he would probably not have played this season.

Well seeing as the people on here saying he's brilliant aren't Chester fans, and will have seen him maybe once, are basing how good he was on comments of Chester fans, then surely the same applies? Couldn't that poster be the same and say he's good when in fact he wasn't.

We're all blinded by the draw of a home-grown player. It took me a long time to say that Robbie Evans was, in fact, really not very good at all.

Or maybe the professionals at the club signing him have some idea of his potential? I would generally trust the judgment of people working in football over that of random internet posters 99% of the time. (Gary Mills, etc, accounting for the other 1%!)

This has been an awful start by Sam.

No assistant
No goalkeeper coach
12 players (excluding Tharme)

Most depressing summer we’ve had in a long long time. I think somebody needs to remind Sam that pre season is for team bonding and the new players getting used to the team.

Farce !

Any other owner and we'd be knocking doors down.

It’s not the owners that I’m worried about , it’s whether or not Ricketts is completely out of his depth. He knew what level we were at and our budget , I hope he hadn’t been too ambitious targeting players completely out of our reaches.

A good point. Which is why I qualified it with "So either a fair assessment of the kid, Chester fans not recognising talent, or sour grapes. Which do you think?"
