The next 3-4 league games are now critical in terms of momentum and also keeping up with the pack. Fylde, Maidenhead, Boreham Wood and Daggers are not easy games and with 12 points at stake then the team really have to step up their game after recent performances.
Agree but this league turns up surprises and I still have a funny feeling we will be top again in a few weeks time.

If we keep choosing all the non scorers--Summerfield, Rutherford, Wright, Grant &, Beavon we will imagine at some stage drop out of play off place. Defeats and draws will lead to dropping down.
Maybe if there was an acknowledgement by management of lack of creativity in midfield I would be more hopeful. When it is ignored or worse not aware of any kind of optimism for the rest of the season evaporates.

If things dont change they will stay the same and doing the same think over and expecting a different result is madness.
The next 4 league games are critical because if we drop down the pack its the start of the slippery slope.
Lets hope GB can find the right blend in all these players.

Every team needs to keep strengthening and we needed it, but there is no magic formula, there's a fine balance between, improvement and unsettling a squad and very few teams will get it right, especially if too many changes are made. It maybe be coincidence or it may be bad management or it may just be our luck has been out but we always seem to better when things are stable, but players seldom hit the ground running. The next 4 or 5 games will be vital, settling new players in, whilst trying to stay in touch and trying get that consustency we had up to January.

More than half way through the season and we are experimenting - we haven't lost any players - why are we resorting to this approach.
Because its the FA Trophy and no one cares much whether we win or lose, and this is a free hit at seeing if the players can cope with plan B, C or D rather than switch straight to hoofball ?

Agree with this to many changes will upset the balance I think the team just needs a few tweaks, we definitely need a creative midfielder but in January like strikers they aren't easy to find, we all know we need more goals but a lot of the reason we don't score many is down to playing with one isolated forward and the rest of the side sitting to deep, this is OK if you have pace in the side but we don't even our new forwards don't have pace.

One thing is certain Beavon is vital to this team.

Each of the above statements is applicable in football as it is in any other business.

There's a well-know saying that every business is either moving forward or it is moving backwards (relative to its competitors) and it can never stand still. Whether we like it or not, our competitors are continually trying to up their game, whether that's by strengthening their squads, or by improving fitness levels, or by developing new tactics.

Doing the same old things, game after game, is - as pagl said - a sign of madness. For one thing, we are being watched by our opponents, who learn to overcome our tactics unless we vary them, i.e. we are 'found-out.' So we must do the same to them. We have to adopt new techniques - different set-pieces, formations and so on. We must constantly improve areas in which we have weaknesses - delivering balls into areas that hurt our opponents, particularly to our 'goalscorers.' We have to learn to keep the ball - especially when we're defending a one goal lead, and not to give it away. They can't score if they don't have the ball, and neither can we if they have it.


Every team that we play has strengths and weaknesses. We have to know what they are, and exploit them. They will change their formations and techniques during games to try and exploit us, and we must react to those changes. When we simply carry on as before, it plays into their hands: they know what we will do next and prevent us if they can. We must do the same to them.


There's no room for coaches who just say 'keep on doing what you've been doing, and you'll break them down' (i.e. in the second half.)


None of that means 'fiddling around with things' until we get it right. It means adopting a strategy for every game and for every situation.


If we don't change, our opponents will, and they will definitely want to change for the better. Woe betide us if we don't at least match them.

Do we have the coaches to do that as does appear from the outside that we have old school coaches at the helm with Darlington and his defensive approach alongside.
