People expect managers to blood youth, build a team, style of play etc but then demand their head on a stick with any poor run of form. If we jumped on every victory the same way we do to a loss we'd be an absolute juggernaut of confidence.

I repeat, 3 straight losses is hugely disappointing but also remember where we are still and what we are capable of. 3 games ago after walloping Salford, where were people bitching and losing their minds over the structure and choice of management? I'm not saying Barrow is a messiah but he's not some div who knows sod all either.

I can understand peoples anger, we have received sell on feeís, compo for two managers, great crowds coming through the gates and we know that we have money from a reasonable cup run on its way in a few months. But then when it gets to the transfer window we fail to sign any known forwards who are currently doing the business and again taking our chances on strugglers. Itís the same as last season, itís hard to turn a blind eye to eight years of failure on the pitch.

Is it Barrow or is it the lack of support in the budget ? Personally I think itís the budget we are simply not competitive in the transfer market or on wages to bring in the quality required. If we canít afford to be competitive then something is drastically wrong ( probably running costs of the ground) as we donít have any sugar daddyís to take a cut back out of all these lucky pots of money that have come our way.

Letís hope Barrow is given enough support as I remember when I was sold the dream on fans ownership at Glyndwr University many years ago that no one would be creaming the profits off the top and this would allow us to put all the money back in and a better product on the pitch, not seen any evidence yet.

Sooner people realise we ain't going to do nothing this season or the season after or the season after the better. We just can't help but bottle it can we. Literally becoming embarrassing. We really are a laughing stock.

Most of our football club directors are more than qualified to run businesses.
I agree its crass but I also think the WAFC board has the wrong structure.
The WST is responsible for ownership and direction and WAFC must be football and business and we dont have the right structure at this level.

Outside investment is a must, there also needs to be a figure head leading the troops. At the moment its a 2 man band.

The games have been coming thick and fast over the last couple of weeks which has meant little time, if any has been available to spend on the training pitch.
Understand it's the same for most teams but hopefully now we are back to just Saturday matches for the foreseeable future, GB can put the lads through their paces and reiterate what they need to be doing and following the FAT match things will start to improve.

You never know.

In the cold light of day, we have ballsed up last night. Seems like we capitulated. But the rankings on RP are laughable. Itís total knee jerk reaction. We have performed poorly in the last three games and got what we deserved -nowt!
But look at the league table folks. No one is really setting the league alight. Itís there for the taking and it can just as easily be WAFC.
Personal attacks on GBs ability are rather childish - give the lad a chance, and time to sort things out the way he wants. Itís no wonder footy managers have only months at the helm with the chasing pack behind them! All very unrealistic.

Not sure if serious. Would you like a refund every time Wrexham lose?

Only for a minority of hardened fans who travel that far on a Tuesday night and see a team play with significantly less effort than they have taken to get there. Other club chairmen have done this on many occasions.

Most teams have a dip in form at some point in a season.

The first half of the season has been good so hopefully we get back to business in the next league game and get a decent run going.
It's all about timing.

Keep the faith!
