I agree with you Ev,we should have a plan.Where does he see the club in 5 years let alone next season.Im a half empty guy,so i see only relegation on saturday.Whatever happens you can wave goodbye to a lot of these players.They are either not good enough for this level or they are youngsters looking to play for better teams.As for Frank i have no idea of the thinking of the owner so who knows.I am not sure if i can make it saturday,housefull of kids,but the sad thing is i dont care if i go or not,i think we are down.A very disapointed fan.

That is precisely my point Ev. and that is not a criticism of Steve, he, rightly so in my opinion will, not invest more than he seems adequate to maintain the team.
If we cast our minds back to the last time we were in the premier division, we had the best management duo the club has ever had, they could see that without an increase in investment the club could not maintain it`s premiership status, they requested more, it was not forthcoming, so they felt they had no other option but to leave.
We all know what happened then.
This season has seen a repeat so what is the point in staying up, just to get a repeat of this season`s debacle.
Naturally I do not want to go down, like every other supporter you want to see your club progress, but without an increase in the budget, and like I always say, we have to live within our means and not expect others to support our ambitions.
This is why the statement by Hackbridge Harry regarding the supporters getting together to move the club forward, should be a rallying call to us all.
If we want something then get off our backsides and work for it, and not expect others to finance it.

What does the Chairman want Alan?  What is the plan for the next four or five years?  We never know and that is the problem.  Because at the end of the day a fair percentage of the club's future is reliant on whoever sits at the top of the heap of any club.  I thought that his statement in the Harlow programme was disappointing: offering us little insight into what is to come.

My reasons for my post Bondy is this,
What is the point in staying up just to embarrass ourselves again next season with the distinct possibility of losing even more support.
Supporters, and I mean the non ardent ones,do not wish to keep seeing their team losing week in and week out.
Sometimes you have to take a step backward to move forward.
Even if we did, by some miracle stay up, will the ethos of the club and the chairman change, will they learn from the lessons of this season. No! I very much doubt it.
So my point is this, enough damage has already been done to this clubs reputation, why risk doing further damage, because if nothing changes that is what will happen.

I’m sorry Alan but I disagree with your notion 100%.  How could we be better off going down?

The top 4-6 teams in Bostik South are generally very competitive and it might take us years to get back up.
Meanwhile the bottom half is a very poor standard of footie indeed.

If we have any possibility of staying up this weekend, no matter how slender, I hope we grasp it with both hands.

Spot on. And with league reorganisations there would be a real possibility of not even having the compensation of good outings to Kent and Sussex. We could easily end up in the Southern League with trips to places west and north of London and mainly in the suburbs.

Turned out the pockets of my trousers last night and pulled out a tatty ticket with 46 on it. So  I think thats me, Geoff. See you Saturday.

lets get real here if we manage by some miracle to stay up or go down why on earth would you want to carry
on with a manager who it is patently obvious is not up to the job.we may have had a great season in bostik
south,but frank has made a complete balls up of this season whatever the eventual outcome he must surely
go either by resigning when its all over otherwise i can see us playing at home in front of crowds of less than a hundred there is only so much dross people will take.our owner needsto now show what ambition he has
for the club and get in a manager who has some idea.

I dont think Frank would be bold enough to go for it. Omar will be up front on his own again. My preference would be to go either with a 4-2-4 with Omar & Reis & on the flanks go with Danny & Dan or 4-3-3 with Reis, Danny & Dan.
