So you'd be content for us to lose our league standing in order to prove we are on the right path? Unbelievable.

Just read the quote you've replied to and couldn't agree with you more. dropping out of the league would be the worst thing that could happen to this club and we wouldn't be getting back in any time soon. 100 years of unbroken league membership and some people would be happy to throw it away to build some sort of club ethos. Think we should be able to do that without losing our league status, unthinkable.

they are curles players, he assembled the soft centre we now have!

we have improved our defensive record, but we still have the soft underbelly that curle left us with - thats more mental than organisational.

however, trying to play a better brand of football is all well and good, but you cant do it with hoofball players!!

recruitment in the summer is once again needed to be massive

Please explain what players are hoofball players?? I thought all players were footballers who adapt to the tactics any particular manager wishes them to play.

No not content, but I would take it if it meant that we had a long term vision and plan for the Club, to be honest I would go and watch the club in whatever the division they were in. Yes I want us to have league football but its more about meeting mates and enjoying the day out and enjoying the football I am watching. In the last few seasons with journeymen managers there has been precious little enjoyable football to watch.

Wow, I think your on your own there mate, dropping into non league would be an unmitigated disaster and you would do it because you want to see a ethos developed, no thanks Jon.

I get what you are saying, but Brady and co can only work with the tools they are given and I think this team would struggle whoever was in charge. I think it needs us to get to the end of the season and have a big clearout and bring in players that Brady & co can work with to take us forward.

What do you mean by soft centre as by common consent on here that the defence had improved considerably and that includes Marshall! If you mean the front three they perhaps deserve a more appropriate nickname?

I think soft centre is harsh too, we are where we are because of a lack of ability not effort and primarily being completely blunt in attack.

What I meant by soft centre / soft underbelly, is that you watch the game and feel like they have done ok, but they actually create very little going forwards and then get picked off for a 1-0 or 2-0 defeat, often to a fairly tepid goal.

I agree that he has had no opportunity to bring his own people in and that the squad is not strong enough for the division. However, I can think of numerous times when I have seen a Cobblers team written off as hopeless, only to be revitalised and rejuvenated by a new manager. Not sure this has happened with too many this time around.

Iím not anti-Brady. I want it to work and relegation is not necessarily the end for him as far as I am concerned. I just worry that he might be a losing manager long term and I would need to see a lot more before Iíd be offering out long term contracts.

Manny, as mad as battery man sounds, I do have some support for his point of view.

I never thought Iíd quote a biblical story on the hotel end but ...
Wasnít there a guy that built his house on the sand and another guy that built his house on the rocks. One fell down and one didnít- you can work out which one for yourself!

Journeymen with no loyalty, who canít wait to work nearer home, and have no genuine passion for success is the football equivalent of building a successful football club on the sand. If we need to go backwards to build on the rocks then I for one will vote for that.

Donít expect all to agree, especially those like JollyCobbler that think loyalty is for mugs and losers.

Don't forget that most of the bible has about as much credence as any other work of fiction, considerably less in some cases and why would not wanting to lose our long standing league status be considered disloyal?

I didn't say I wanted us to lose our league status, what I said was I would still follow them if we did and I think we need to settle on a steady head at the helm to get us there, wouldn't you want to see a long term solution to the **** we have had to put up with these last few years. We need an owner that wants a club with a long term plan and a manger who wants the same.

Fair enough but it wouldnít be the person with back to back relegations.

I didn't say you did, I was replying to Jim Hall, hence the boxed "quote" from Jim Hall above my reply.

Also, yes, of course I'd like to see a long term solution to the shyte that's gone on but not at the expense of our league status that would possibly do a lot more harm than good. Many teams have dropped out and some have probably come back stronger, not many. More have dropped out and not come back and won't be coming back any time soon and we ain't going to get a Ryan Reynolds either.

The other major consideration is budget .
We are simply not paying the going rate in wages for this division .
That may be prudence on behalf of the Exec team and it may stand us in good stead during these hard times but we will never truly compete or hold on to our good players if we pay below the accepted levels .
Watch again at the end of this season as the very few better players go for more money elsewhere .

Maybe something to consider for those thinking of appointing an up and coming non league manager in the close season, especially if we went down this year?

Beware the freefall.
