Players have chucked it, you knew it would go like this. 10 game rule applies and there's bound to be a managerial change after that.

We've got the players but as literally everyone knew in pre-season, we haven't got the manager.

As usual a candid and forthright interview with Sarll ahead of today's game. He calls the league programme "stupid" and " scandalous, absolutely scandalous". He's regularly had to give several players (Matt Worthington in particular) "a bit of an old-fashioned size nine up the harris at half time". We still haven't got a fully-qualified, full time physio. We haven't got any money to bring any more players in and we may have 5 out today leaving 14 fit with 4 first year pros who were academy players last year.

It's all looking shit
Looking shit has never stopped anyone taking 3 points off us.

Solihoof are an absolute shambles at the back. Being helped by a whistle happy tosser in black though.
Now our turn to be all over the place at the back. Nervy 25 mins ahead although it might suit our counter attack style.

1-1 Game of 2 halves by the sounds of it, we bossed the first half but we're pinned back at the minute. Could go either way, but you kind of know which way it will....

Equalise to make it 2-2 only for Connor Brown to have his back pass intercepted. We are shambolic :ffs:

I did mean our way, obviously.

14 points lost from winning positions at half time, 7 out of the 8 games we've played we've been winning at some point, yet we've got 2 wins, a draw and 5 defeats to show for it.

Pressure will be on Evatt now to sort it out, something seriously wrong mentally that we continually make mistakes and shoot ourselves in the foot.

Sounded like both teams had decent spells in the game, good win that though, back to back wins going into Tuesday against a Barra team that capitulate when going ahead.

Didn’t realise Barrow played it out from the back these days. We were poor in the first half and Barra seemed to get in behind our full backs fairly often.

Turned it around in the 2nd half, Barrow did their best to give us as many chances as possible with some questionable defending. We had Ferdinand booked for diving which looked a nailed on penalty - would like to see the highlights. No doubt about our actual penalty though, one of the most obvious you’ll ever see.

Bring on Torquay Tuesday.

Piss easy win over a dreadful Sutton. For someone who didn't come with glowing reviews from Aldershot fans, Shamir Fenelon looks a really useful player.

Until it gets cold and he injures himself fucking about the the dressing room. Then you won’t see him for months...

Tired County rode our luck today

Still won't get home for another couple of hours because the Heddlu seemed to think it was '80s Millwall turning up instead

We were awful first half, atrocious. Yet I still feel we should have won it in the second. Cannot begrudge a Brother a win ever though.

Another loss at home to Maidenstonehead on Tuesday and all hell will break loose.

Who would have thought that nobody on here has anything to say about the Chorley v Boreham Wood TV game? I'm shocked.

Chorley look like they have a lot of work to do if they are to avoid the bottom 4.

Nobody in the country watched it. What was the score?

Interesting to hear Luke Garrard say that the NL North is much stronger than the South, I know most people in here think it but it's good to hear it confirmed, especially by a southern manager.

Overall the better side definitely won. Hartlepool should have been at three up at half time having also hit the woodwork a couple times and could have grabbed another in the second half but for an absolutely outstanding save from our keeper.

One of those games where I think our inexperience showed. First half Hartlepool were easily the better side, Toure in particular looked dangerous. We couldn't get our passing game together (partly thanks to some good work by Hartlepool) and spent most of the half pumping long balls against a bit of a wind that were easily dealt with by Raynes, et al. Second half we switched formations and got back in to the game more, leading to a well worked goal by Reid. After that we looked the team more likely to grab a winner until Kioso's well taken goal. After that we resorted back to hopeful balls in to the box but didn't have any success other than a Niate header that he directed straight at Killip.

Overall thought Hartlepool looked like a good all-round team for this level, and looked particularly dangerous at set pieces. The only player I wasn't sure about was Killip, who didn't have much to challenge him all game but looks like one of those players who looks a bit of a potential liability, losing his rag and getting wound up at the slightest thing on a couple of occasions and was lucky not to get worse than a booking in injury time for a bit of handbags and pushing one of our players.

Love the referee pretending as though he's getting advice from the linesman and then reversing his original correct decision after caking himself at Woking players in his face. Wasn't in the box.

Boreham Wood bring on tv badly affected their away support today as some stayed at home to watch it instead of travelling, so they only had 6 there instead of the 8 that would have gone if not on tv.
