As for the players, well what can you say? Although in fairness, it's been proven what they think of Davies and they must be sick to death of Darlington.
The players are clearly not playing for Keates. They obviously haven’t forgiven him for walking out on them. And I agree with others that this is not a terrible group of players, 90% of them played in a side finishing 4th last season.

It shows how out of touch this board are that something like this would not be apparent. Surely there was a feeling around the squad that a Keates return would not be welcomed?

You can't get a new manager bounce with an Old manager, especially when he brought some of them in.
must of thought after deserting the players and us, that when the prodigal one returned all is to be forgiven and forgotten,there was talk of Pearson being taken to Walsall with Keates, has he seen his ass, hes playin like it, Keates signs Cook player from our league

When he was reappointed I was very wary but willing to give him and Board some leeway to see how it panned out.

As I feared it was a lazy decision to probably continue with a pathway the Board and WST set a while back.

Where do we go from here? One thing is for certain: we cannot continue as we are because ruin is now staring us in the face. Does the WST have the bottle to acknowledge this and do something positive about it? I simply do not know. But we members must force them to make the necessary changes or the club will die. Paying for the Racecourse and a team good enough to bounce back straight away will be beyond us.

Totally agree, when DK left last time the season fell apart. A number of people were calling for Pearson to be looked at a manager. However, under his captaincy we imploded and he couldn't turn it around. I am not sure that he can lift players who are short of confidence. He is a committed player and gives his all but that isn't enough at the moment.

Slept badly last night. Haven't read many posts but the titles give the feelings away. Wonder how many of the posters actually went?

Team selection gave the game away. Same old, same old, little creativity, poor tactics and poor execution.
Started reasonably brightly and had ' fleet on the back foot. Patrick showed up well particularly in the first half.
Gave away a daft goal with a speculative ball across the box hitting Jennings and dropping into the net with Lainton stranded.
Unlike Tuesday last, heads didn't drop and we fought our way back into the game against an equally poor side. Deserved the Equaliser from Kennedy who was MOM for us.
Their winner was a cracking strike from a poorly cleared corner giving the player far too much space as we didn't close the shot down.
Tried hard to get back in the game but effort isn't enough and although we opened them up a few times we failed to get on the end of good balls into the box which could literally have been tap ins.
Overall performance disjointed and disappointing. One or two good moments but lack of a real striker and no No.10 was our downfall.
Game of IF'S ( with apologies to Rudyard Kipling)
IF we had a left back who wasn't easily beaten they wouldn't have had many chances.
IF Pearson hadn't slipped when his man turned back they wouldn't have got the first goal.
IF Lawler could actually play the ball to one of his own rather than hoofing it the length of the field for a goal kick we'd have been better off.
IF our centre backs could actually head a ball to our own men rather than just up in the air, I'd be pleasantly surprised / shocked.
IF we had more like Kennedy we'd have won at a canter.
IF we had a 3 man midfield, rather than Young and two useless objects in Summers and Wright we'd have been home and dry.
IF we had more players with the enthusiasm of Rutherford we would be
challenging. Most of our better moves came through him and Kennedy down the right flank.
IF Grant was 6 foot 2 he'd be a target man, as it is he's cannon fodder for opposition CB's Plenty of effort but no support.
IF Patrick plays a full 90 like he did the first half we wouldn't be crying today.

IF, IF. IF. we had a manager who had half a brain and half a clue we wouldn't be in the SH1T.

We have enough players at the club, good enough to get us out of this mess, they are just not being used effectively by a totally clueless manager.

Not one to normally call for heads on a plate but we are rapidly falling towards NLN with a £1million quid in the bank and a load of dross managing the team. Bench full of players, 2 - 1 down. Takes one of the 3 decent players off and puts Harris on.

I'll be at Eastleigh for my sins on Tuesday. Not going with any real expectation of a result but Hope springs eternal.

Apologies for the long winded tirade.

When somebody like Quay Red posts a report like this you know the situation is bad. It looks like Spencer FC are doomed.

I disagree about lack of effort from Grant. He ran his bits off against Yeovil. That said I have missed a number of games recently so....

Player of the season thus far for me would be Young

No apology needed your view is the view of many. Absolute joke we are on the field. Players frozen out who are actually strikers then playing Grant as a target man ( not grants fault ). Of all our faults that is the worst one of the lot
