This is getting very worrying. it is now 8 games without a win and its hard to see where the next win is coming from?
Tonights game was typical of the last few games, we had plenty of posession but never looked like scoring.
All it needs is Forest Green to win a couple of games and we will be in real relegation trouble. That gae against them last day of the season is getting bigger and bigger.
It would be heartbreaking to go down after just one season after the years of trying to get into the Conference.

maybe if the fans made a bit of noise during the match (and not just shouting abuse at the visiting supporters) it would be easier for the team. last night we were at home and were completely out sung by about 30 Stanley fans, even Danny Potter said something about the lack of home support in the second half.

Phil Old Boy here!! Lost login details at work with a new computer kit fitted.

Its an even more difficult period coming up and perhaps other teams superior fitness levels are really coming into play now.

The season starts again this Friday at 1pm. What I want to hear is everyone supporting from everywhere. If someone is having a mare then give them encouragement and don’t knock em. If the others are playing well then it should rub off on them. With hopefully more through the turnstile, the team have to perform to a level that will encourage those new to the ground to want to come back also.

Let’s all do our part.

I'm probably being optimistic when I said it could be Exeter, but we all know there are three massive games coming up soon and they include the final two games of the season York and FGR, (the other being Leigh RMI). A point or three against Tamworth would probably be a bonus too.

I feel that 9 points from these three games is most probably a must and if we can achieve that we'll be fine.

I think it will get worse before it gets better.

Can't see us getting anything over the bank holiday. Would be pleased to get a result against Exeter.

It's the next three games that IMHO are critical. We could wait and see if we obtain anything from York and FGR but really we need to pick up points away to Leigh, Tamworth and hopefully a Scarborough side that is content with mid table. This should hopefully give us a cushion before our last two games.

Overall this season I haven't seen that many sides that have completely outplayed us - apart from the beginning of the season we haven't managed to scrape the odd result <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Just as well you got the points on the board early, i think your performances are far better than your league position suggests, and i hope you do stay up, i hope we manage to do you a favour on friday against Northwich, although to be honest i would like them to stay up with you. your going to finish this season how we finished our first, nail bitting stuff, but i,m sure you have the capabilities to do it.

POB again!

I’m sure that our season has virtually mirrored that of Gravesend’s, as Up Fleet has indicated.

They had a great start and were just below the leaders in the early stages. Then some thing happened, whether injuries or the rest of the conf teams playing catch up or improving, but points were hard to gain after that and things became a bit tense towards the end.

Certainly as already mentioned those teams we have to play that are around us in the table are the most crucial. The seven point cushion we have can be quickly eroded and especially if the bottom teams have to play each other, which guarantee points to someone or another.

Been a very interesting season.

Hopefully the management team have learnt a great deal.

Jeff King said on the radio the other day that not many teams have really dominated us - and I tend to agree. The only ones he mentioned was Hereford(H), Morecambe(a) and Halifax away. We have lost a few points due to lapses of concerntration and this appears to be the difference between us and many of the other clubs. I'm not being disrespectful to the other clubs but they have just managed to grab those little chances or been able to ride the storms, such as injuries, better than us.

Suppose the players are starting to feel the pace a little now and it must be easier for the full time ex-league clubs - there definitely seems to be a division within a division with regard to the fulltime Conf. clubs and those that are part time such as us and G&N etc.

Think another 6 points will probably be enough to keep us up. I can't see Forest Green winning 4 of their remaining 8 games although you never know.

Agree with the above. Only Hereford, Morecambe and Halifax have really outclassed us and they've been so many games, Burton, Woking and Farnboro at home for example where we've thrown away the points to be honest. If we had won these games our position would be alot favourable.

Hey lads! I'm back!

Been studying hard and doing loads of work (yeah, right!), which is why i haven't been on here for a while.

Cant make the Carlise game on Friday coz i'm still up north but i will be singing my heart out for the boys at Barnet on Monday. Sounds like we need a bit of vocal noise at this time of the season and who better to mouth off than me, eh?

I think we will pick ourselves up after Tuesday and get at least a draw on Friday. Carlise are doing ok but not as well as they would like. They have dropped points on Barnet and i think the whole flooding thing a couple of months ago, forcing them to postpone a few games has affected them.

Barnet away is going to be a tricky one, but it'll be Bank Holiday Monday which means i'll be drunk and i'm pretty sure Ken, Jim and the boys will be joining me! This will surely make us rowdy, solving the lack of noise i keep hearing about and give the boys a boost to get us a result, i hope!

By the way, does anyone know what pubs to drink in around Barney or do some of ya wanna meet up in London town for an early start?

I expect Barnet will be quite a laugh on Monday. Have a few cans on the coach going up there to get in the mood, sorted!!

very true yellow very true

I was rubbish at maths at school so im probably wrong but if they win tomorrow i think they can win the league on monday (cant be botherd to check again <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />). if its true then there should be a really good atmosphere at the game.
Obviously it will be a bit quiet there end when we score our 3rd <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

For Barnet to win the League on Monday they need to beat both their opponents tomorrow and us Monday and rely on both Carlisle and Halifax to drop three points over the weekend each.

Both games this weekend, we can either help of hinder them! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
