Just been to my local shop and picked up the non league paper ,there is a double page spread on mr king,I knew his record was good I never realised how good 10 top 5 finishes and 4 Championships ,and lives on our doorstep what more can be said,our lose will be someone else’s gain
6 games in and we are talking doom and gloom change the manager.We have 5 points should be more .Lee hasn't got his feet under the table and we want to pull the rug .He who not not be named doesn't stay long at clubs and nor does the players he brings in . Short term fix . Will harm the club in the long term
Pre season games are not like league you assess players and try formations. I believe there is a team in the squad which will compete. My worry is that with such a small squad we will not see the best of it because of injury. How long do we give well I feel that we should give Lee a season .Why do I say that this is a transition for the club and it will take time To get out of this league you need money and a good base/spine for the team which I think we have. Time to build and push on will take more than 6 league games other teams are further down the line than us.
My point is the budget is big enough to have 20 players in the squad if spent wisely, obviously lee hasn’t he has had that group of players for 14 games now,there is no transition he was brought in as an experience manager to push us towards the playoffs,and quite clearly after 6 games you can see us starting to deteriorate these all Lee signings he made the choice to retain a lot of last year’s players his choice as 99% were out of contract,that comes down to contacts,which lee has struggled with,he has been given a healthy budget,and the can stops with the manager
Plus you say we have a good spine two center back who have been part of letting in 10 goals Central midfield Central midfield as weak as anything, and forwards that have scored 3 goals between them so please tell me where we have a strong spine ?

Steve King might be here if things don't improve. He was reported in the NLP as being available. I doubt that he would tolerate some the characters that run this club. He only respects people who know the game. Lee should be given at least another month or so. We shouldn't forget that two of his new signings, West and Cox were here last season and they did not exactly set the club alight with their performances. We could do with a really solid centre back and an equally solid left back. That won't solve the centre forward problem tho'.
We don’t have a decent spine to the team. Previously you could call on Simpemba, Hughes, Taylor/Pinney.Or going back Austin,Smart, Atkin. We have a mixture of last seasons players who came close to getting relegated and the new signings who barely played last season. We hear they look good in training and maybe so but after crossing the line at 2.55 is where it counts.
