Lainton & Pearson won't be playing in NLN. They will be off if we get relegated.

Certainly. Lainton is too good for that level and the passion has been totally stripped from Pearson. A move will probably do him and the club some good, as he's not performing for the high wage he's undoubtedly on. It's a shame as I never thought I'd find myself talking about Pearson in that way but here we are.

Strange times we live in. Used to be first name on the sheet but i still think he should be dropped in his current form. Hes had the heart ripped out of him.

Can't believe some of the negativity on here - we are not blessed with quality but dropping Pearson is bizzare - the team may not be getting the results we all want and some players might not be playing to their best but for me Pearson is one of the first names on the team sheet - I watch set pieces and corners and if we had 6 Pearson's attacking the ball we would do a lot better - it can't be easy at the moment but sticking together and not stripping the defence of our Captain and leader wont exactly help - who would replace him.

Calls for JJ Hooper to waltz back into the team are also unfounded - I would persevere with Grant and our new discovery Patrick who was about our only real attacking threat capable of a goal on Tuesday night. Drafting in a player who has been out for so long isn't going to help - is he even close to fitness ?

Can Keates turn it around ? the next two away games are crucial before we take on high flying Solihull Moors on the following Saturday at home.

It's fine margins - games are being decided by no more than one goal but our away form has to start producing points. I feel this squad has it within - how can a team beat the likes of high flying Barrow, Halifax and Bromley but fail against lower placed opposition ?

To me, a post that starts with 'Can't believe some of the negativity on here' screams 'do not take me seriously'. We're 22nd in the league, what are you expecting?

Is Pearson at the moment playing well, leading from the front or firing players up like he used to? Answer to that is no. DO we have a better option on the bench? Answer to that is yes.

As for sticking with Grant ok fair enough but FFS put someone near him to give him some support. Goals win games and having a 5ft 8 guy as an isolated target man is beyond stupid.

Yeah that's not his game. And tbh it's not the game of any of our forwards, if we are going to lump balls forward the only player with a chance of playing that role is Oswell and he seems out of favour. Hooper would be wasted as a target man.

You’d imagine our higher paid players will have relegation release clauses anyway.

The only thing making it difficult to drop Pearson right now is I feel Lawlor is playing even more poorly. That being said, I wouldn't be too opposed to seeing Kennedy and Tharme line up at CB. Kennedy has to be a certainty right?

As a fan of a club that gets relegated on a regular basis there are a number of changes that will happen should you get relegated.
1. You will have 2 less home matches a season...loss of £80k a year.?
2. The away support will be down, most clubs only bring around 50 fans.
3. Ticket prices would have to be lower £15 pay at the gate?
4. Season ticket prices would have to change too. People won't pay N/L prices.
5. The players you sign will be of a lower quality because of lower revenue.
6. Crowds will plummet people just will not watch football at that level.
7. Sponsors will not want to pay as much for NL/N football.
8. Less national coverage. No BT matches in NL/N
9. Any players you develop and want to sell on will not bring the money you have been getting as a N/L club...it's a few thousand not £1m.

Couple all of this with less overall matchday money associated with all of the above; less food sold, less half time draw money ect, ect and there will be a massive drop in money coming in.
For the 6th tier of football there are lots of clubs at that level with decent support and also backers who put money into the club.
The clubs for that level are not 'tiny' either apart from us there are some clubs who would be considered L2 and N/L clubs.
York, Boston, Hereford, Gateshead, Southport, Telford, Kidderminster, Darlington and Altrincham. It's a really hard league to get out of. Made even harder by the clubs who are bankrolled (Kings lynn top on average crowds of 500)?
If you get relegated it could cause real trouble for you to keep going.
