A poor old show and not good enough to keep us in league one I'm afraid.
We've had months to address things and haven't got a good enough squad.
I'd actually argue its weaker than the one that gained promotion.
We are now miles behind the likes of Oxford who must be pissing themselves at our situation
Not good enough kelvin.

Oxford have sold their best players. Sure they got their man last night but the supporters are more pessimistic than some on here considering they had a good pot of money to spend.
Lets see how the season goes before giving sweeping negative statements

We heard all this tosh when DC had the club
No one will buy it.
KT or at least a group of which he is the front man did.
It's now apparent the finances of the said group are not enough to keep us in this division.
We are not competitive at this level,look how Oxford have kicked on.
The time for parading American footballers(did that shaq fellow ever appear at sixfields) are long gone.
Put the club on the market and let's see what develops.
I don't think even the most claret spectacle wearing fan would argue that the likes of Oxford are buying players for hundreds of thousands in order to progress where as we are buying untried loans and freebies,
We as fans know what happens next,we are not idiots.
I'm not knocking the board for having a go but it's glaringly apparent that the step up in league is far too big for a consortium of their limited resources.

It's all very well not putting up ticket prices for the Man U game but when we can't compete in the transfer market you have to question the logic!
A lot of ST were sold on the back of the promise little deliver big tag line.
Tonight we have been promised big and delivered little.
Sorry to vent my spleen but that's how I feel
Another in a large line of chances for the club to kick on has gone begging,
Who in all honesty expect us to stay up under a manager who has bemoaned the lack of firepower for weeks but now leaves us until Jan without any improvement in that department??


Nobody else seems to have picked up on this so I guess I will.

It's now apparent the finances of the said group are not enough to keep us in this division.
- How on earth do you know that? How do you know that we didn't go in for people and get turned away, or that Page didn't have a clue who to go after, or this scout chap had no clue, What makes you think it's finances?

We are not competitive at this level,look how Oxford have kicked on.
-We don't know yet, it's only been a few games.

Put the club on the market and let's see what develops.
- No.

I don't think even the most claret spectacle wearing fan would argue that the likes of Oxford are buying players for hundreds of thousands in order to progress where as we are buying untried loans and freebies,
- You must have missed the part where they sold a player for 3million, and likely knew about that for some time, and again, this could be nothing to do with finances. You do not know that.

We as fans know what happens next,we are not idiots.
- We do not know what happens next, and the second part is clearly debatable.

Who in all honesty expect us to stay up under a manager who has bemoaned the lack of firepower for weeks but now leaves us until Jan without any improvement in that department??
- Use your brain, just a tiny bit - do you think if he didn't think he had the resources to bring someone in he would have made the comments he has? or make the promises he has? to me that would suggest it's not a finance issue, it's a recruitment issue - It seems more likely that the money was there, but the recruitment process fell short.

I'm not knocking the board for having a go but it's glaringly apparent that the step up in league is far too big for a consortium of their limited resources.
- Again you're talking about things you know nothing about - you do not have a blind clue as to the resources of the club or the owners. They are better than the last, that's one thing thats certain.

When was the last time we had a 20 goal a season striker, we didn't even have one last season
My fault for picking a figure - yes, I'd guess Akinfenwa was the last 20+, although I'm sure Richards would have gone past 18 last season had he not been injured.  We  are still looking one high-scorer short,  in my opinion, for this season although I'd love to be wrong on that. Much depends on how many others weigh in with goals.

A week ago against West Brom we were a decent side - we have now added a quality winger in Anderson yet we are doomed?

It's fairly obvious we're still at least one striker short especially with Rico looking as if he's heading for early retirement, but the amount of players that some have written off already is utterly ridiculous. We don't know how good this squad is. Let's see where we are in January. It is frustrating that we haven't signed more firepower but I'm sure it's not for lack of trying. It's tough to compete with clubs like Bolton & Charlton. It just is.

The more I see of his posts the more I genuinely think Shoemaker is a parody account.

From what I saw in 20mins against Wycombe, Hanley might actually prove to be like a new signing, he looked quick and got to the byline 4 or 5 times with ease. Might be worth a go.

Maybe we could give him a run out on the left wing?

Worked for Gareth Bale......  Smiley

I believe RP/KT probably did everything they could to bolster our squad, but we are in a bigger league now, and probably not one of the 'fashionable' clubs to sign for... Anderson was a coup, and we've kept John-Joe, Buchs and Smith...  D'ath and JB may still prove their 'worth' too... We're lacking firepower, agreed, but it's not all doom and gloom...
Keep the faith!!

Barring some sort of miracle discovery we are clearly short of someone with the ability to score 20+ goals a season. No excuse for leaving things so late, it needed sorting in plenty of time. Unless Richards gets fit or Hooper suddenly becomes something he never has been, then we're going to have to try squeezing extra goals out of people who are not natural strikers. Personally very disappointed - I hope my pessimism is unfounded.

When was the last time we had a 20 goal a season striker, we didn't even have one last season
