I think the thing that winds me up more than anything about Gravesend is the constant change of squad players. It is not uncommon to have players come in one week and leave the next. Surely, the way to a successful team is a constant and settled team. Although i have my reservations about the quality and strength of the current team to survive in the conference, surely the way to go is to keep a settled squad up to around christmas time and then assess then if changes needs to be made based upon performances and most importantly, league position.
I have a lot of time for Andy Ford. The man who got Gravesend into the conference after years of mediocrity, surely, it is better to be testing ourselves against teams like Shrewsbury, Yeovil, Chester and Exeter than still playing teams such as Croydon, Hendon, Chesham.
The least we can do if give Andy at least until Xmas (if not longer) to continue the progress [color:"red"]THAT HE STARTED [/color] .
We are never going to be able to match the financial clout of the so called 'big boys'. However, what we can do is get players in that want to play, give 101% for Gravesend and Northfleet football club and make Stonebridge Road an imtimidating place to come to that other teams will not really wanna do on a windy Tuesday night.
Whatever, league we find ourselves in, gimme a team of loyal, dedicated players anyday.
Andy - Make this happen!
