Early days. to use a cliche, it is a marathon. It is clear there is some fine-tuning necessary but there should be a balanced review, in my opinion. Yes, there is an issue with taking chances. However, at least chances are being made and some of the football is a vast improvement on last season. We have been averaging a manager every 18 months when you look at who we have had. Chopping and changing isn't helping. I am sure th Palios' are working to a number of measures and technically, W6D2L2 isn't grounds for dismissal of a manager. There will be blips. Even Cheltenham had them. Barnet had them. Bristol Rovers had them.
If we lose next 4, then I am sure the Palios' will take action.

disliking a manager and his tactical approach is not grounds for dismissal if he is meeting the target number of point set, as well as any other criteria used to measure success.

Thank you, a nice, balanced post opening up topics for discussion rather than a rant. I happen to agree with you on every point but would respect it if I didn't. You'd think we hadn't scored a goal all season. We've actually only failed to score twice. There are lots of positives too and we are competitive. If we can start converting chances then we will finish top 3 comfortably.

So, why aren't we scoring enough goals?

Because the attacking players are devoid of any real support and service because Brabin is so concerned with players loosing there head and bombing forwards to get more goals, and we have no plan. Are tactics are, McNulty to Harris to Maynard to Ihewkike to McNulty to Harris to McNulty to long ball attempt to either Cook or the diagonal, problem is when Cooky wins a knock down or hassles a defender into a poor clearance there is no one in support, when Nors or C Jenno pick a ball up in the channel, there is no one or only one making to the penalty spot to offer a crossing opportunity who are then just drowned out by defence. The full backs occasionally over lap if we have some sustained ball, but there final ball is poor (not there fault non league full backs, if the ball was good they wouldn't be non league). We then get caught on the break because the full backs have bombed on so Brabin authorises shutters down and the full backs stop bombing on or become hesitant to do so and Harris and Maynard stand in front of the back two to try and sure it up. Occasionally we throw Mekki or another on, who have a bit of a go create chances but Ultimatley blend into what was before.

We've got to draw opponents out by mixing it up, we've had one good performance against Eastleigh were we did this to great effect so they can do it, they just need to be allowed to do it.
