I'd counter this by saying yes we beat Exeter and Reading over a month ago- Neither of those two teams have won a game since - Exeter were poor, and have since been in total freefall Reading were awful! - To srtand any hope of staying up we will need to finish above these two teams. Yes our skipper is injured - injuries happen - How is the FA cup game a non event??? - cost us 41K just from not progressing!
Bolton could and should have been 5 or 6 nil up at half time, Bristol rovers were very, very average, derby totally blew us away, then the barrow disaster!

What seems to me is there is a lack of fight, lack of passion, no closing down as a unit - all things we did well early on in the season - It's great calling for consistancy - but if you are consistanly getting hammered, with no aparent plan B, team looking like its not playing for you - Something needs to change at some point - I don't think fans asking questions makes them any more or less of a supporter as you - It just maybe means you are happy to settle for being mediocre and just excepting relegation.

I don't expect KT to sack JB simply becuse irt appears JB is happy to play KT's game of not wanting to spend money and being content with what he has - What I would say is the next two games are massive for us as a club - Get nothing from Burton and Cambridge and we are in real mess - even worse play as we have been for the last month, get 2 hammerings - Well that dosen't even warrant thinking about - I think if that were to happen JB may walk before any sort of decision needs making
So after 2 and a half seasons at the helm and all that went with it thatís the opinion after 4 bad results. So you want to pay off Bradyís contract, bring in some random, completely rebuild the squad off the back of having a record of 2/3 failures regarding new managers to every success. And people wonder why we are a yo-yo club.

Then...And I'm sure you would agree... There is no point in sacking Brady.

You find it so easy to spend other people's money!

Unless you can name somebody else who will ' invest' money into our club?

I'm wondering if anyone will join me in donating £10 to their chosen charity for every goal Mr Hylton scores for us this season.
Just a bit of fun that could be a win/win for some worthy causes.
I think as he been the biggest charity the club have supported that it is only fair that he helps to contribute to some more worthwhile causes.

Thankfully I have already made a donation but I will give to Stand Up to Cancer as both parents are currently receiving treatment.
My brother in law just lost a 4 1/2 year fight with Oesophageal cancer. Along with Melbourne I'll also donate a tenner to your Stand Up to Cancer charity for every goal he scores this season.

I'd happily donate £10 per goal to the Motor Neurone Disease Association in memory of my Wife who died last year.

If Danny goes mad and scores 10 or more I'll split the money between the MNDA and Stand Up To Cancer.

I think you guys should be paying that for each game he doesn't complete not each goal he scores as it won't add up to jack.

I'm still very much in the Brady in camp as I've said several times, unless things don't start to improve soon.

What I can't understand is the accusations of poor recruitment. Obviously, not all the players signed in JB's time as manager have been successes, and this has unfortunately been particularly true in terms of goalscorers, with Simpson and Hylton as the prime examples. I agree with those who say they don't fit our style apart from any other factors.

However, the other failures have been mostly short-term loans and, if we take loans and injuries out of the equation there's a sizeable list of good players that have been signed on contract by JB: Burge, Magloire, Odimayo, Koiki, Guthrie, Sherring, Lintott, Hondermarck, Fox, Pinnock and Appere. Personally, I think Brough and Monthe are good signings too. I also think 3 players who were already at the club - Sowerby, McWilliams and Hoskins - are League 1 quality.

Our problem is up front, pure and simple. We've shipped more goals recently, but it's only a real issue because we score so few. Until the last few three games we'd been playing decent football and with a better return of chances converted I'm sure we'd be around mid-table. That would suggest that a lot of the players I've mentioned here ARE good enough, if we can solve the goalscoring problem.

We desperately need to tighten up at the back as we have conceded 15 goals in the 7 games Guthrie has missed (with no clean sheets) so when you are conceding 2 goals a game we need to score 3 and the only time we have done that was with a lot of help from Reading's 'keeper.

I agree we need to tighten up at the back, but we were still in the bottom third before that run of 7 games you mention. At that time we had one of the best defensive records in the division. That suggests that we are capable of defending well and that the goalscoring is the main problem.

Sorry the recruitment is completely out of balance. We have 12 recognised defenders in the squad and only six midfielders, that doesnít seem right to me.
Iím not one of those on the Brady out camp, but the recruitment has been poor. Apparently not all down to him but as Manager Iím afraid heís the one thatís accountable.

Fake news.

18th biggest budget in the league. Somethings gone wrong if weíre one of those in the bottom 4 come the end of the season.

So thatís the level of intelligence is it, budget equates to exact league position and there are no mitigating factors. Keep away from scissors.

Don't know about that Melbourne, his point is probably valid, and in this instance, I think sincere.
It's me who was facetiously pointing out that (the)Jack is Australian urban slang for the clap.

I don't necessarily agree with the calls for additional strikers and also don't agree with Claritys suggestion that we have an overbalanced defence.  When the season started Kioki and Haynes were injured and have only just returned. Brough was signed as cover for Kioki but can also play in the back three or four. No doubt there are others too. Further more we have a (talisman) centre half in Guthrie who is now apparently injury prone; resulting in current abysmal form as it did in tail end of 2023 season. So we may need to have an excellent replacement. True we have Monthe who can also play in the back three along with Brough  but as stand in players they are fine but they are no Guthrie, IMO we need to concentrate in signing more flair players who can add better service in the final third.  Who would be a Manager?

Sincere? Hopefully Soggy will follow through with the cash then mate. Never heard the term in that context myself, although I've heard it used to describe a useless s***Ť, hence the understandable confusion.
