Think it is time to pull this back up.

Based on the tripe on display yesterday, I'd like to think that Keith doesn't have much longer in charge. He can take a good number of the players with him too.

Why didn't you think it was time to "pull this back up" after we beat PLymouth and Newport with ease?

If it's Transitional then we keep him until at least the end of the season. If it's Regressional then we have to get rid in January which means more upheaval, change of staff and players. I'd been thinking that we were showing signs of improvement until yesterday, that was dire, let's hope it was just a backwards step(!?)

itís just the same as last year win a couple then go on a losing streak win a couple and finish 17th just as I have predicted  Tongue
Curle out purely because he is tactically inept, spouts utter bollox and hasnít managed to get a team promotion in 17 attempts.

Difficult to argue with this, but as it stands, keep him to the end of the season and then get rid when it doesn't cost anything. We don't need KT to load more debt onto NTFC by paying off yet another inept manager.

Because all of the Curle Apologists said "Give him time". I gave him time. Thought maybe he was onto something. But shock horror, he wasn't. The guy is dreadful. If we keep him to the end of the season, that's cool. It'll be my lowest number of games attended in a season since I started going and the same for the majority of my group.

Good points - the non-entertainment served up irrespective of results will definitely start telling on the gates

I'm beginning to think the same in that it seems we're not capable of stringing more than 2 or 3 decent results together and will therefore end up around mid-table, which is not good enough with the squad we've got. I also agree however, that we should get rid at the end of the season unless things take a dramatic turn for the better or worse. Changing manager mid-season hasn't worked at all well for us in recent years apart from the expense of it.

I think we as fans are beyond caring what debts the club run up now because it already owes KT and his mate 5 mill. So any more debt will just be racked up to them. They cannot possibly sell it with the debt attached so it doesn't benefit us one way or another. Having said that I don't think getting shot now will help us, we ain't getting promoted this season.

This time last season we went into a Tuesday night League Trophy game against Oxford, won 2-1 and went on a run of 6 wins in 7 games. Can history repeat itself?

If we don't then the Curle apologists won't be able to say we are in a better position than last season for much longer.

Given what recently happened to Bury I think debt is still a worry for most fans.

With the greatest of respect I think youíre wrong to refer to ďCurle apologistsĒ - I think a better term would be Curle realists. Iím certainly not in the minority of those who were underwhelmed when he was appointed but realised there was nothing to do except buckle in and hope that he could put together his team/squad and try to support him as much as possible. I think itís starting to sink in now that there are major issues and it is depressing to think that we might have to write the season off in early October. Having said that we seem to have been here before and KC then pulls a couple of results out to buy more time - looking at the potential returnees for the weekend there is every chance of this happening again but we have no consistency so I fully expect it to recur. As others have said the main reason weíre not getting anything out of the likes of lines, warburton and Adams is possibly to do with the direct style of play KC is employing - at least in the Newport, Plymouth and bits of the Crawley game we mixed it up a bit but on Saturday we just reverted back to hoofing it and playing for knockdowns which is depressingly primitive.

Has the 'mysterious Curle' rendition been sung much recently?
I somehow doubt it!

I don't think that it's just the brand of football, you really have to question things like who thought it was a good idea to loan out Jay Williams with Goode and Turnbull both on 4 bookings ? Surely someone MUST have thought "We might be a bit short in this position" ?

Or the straw hat bol**cks that the club used to desperately try to create some kind of connection with the supporters!

I agree entirely - also the complete lack of Pollock, Williams or Roberts this season after they were so impressive last season.

If we keep the same points per game ratio we will finish on 56 points, more than enough for safety. With that in mind unless there is a serious drop in form then I cannot see him going before the end of the season.

The decision to loan Williams out seems farcical , despite Goode pulling out late in the day .
I assume he did play for Wellingborough on Saturday ?
The notion of it being somehow acceptable that Curle keeps us up is nonsense . He has the budget and free reign to challenge for the play offs at least and should be doing so . Furthermore , he will he expected to develop the youngsters through his coaching staff that he appointed .
