This is what my gut is telling me.

I am assuming the worst for us however.
My worry is if we stick with Danny Webb, which could happen - is he going to have the tactical nouse when we come up against Burchnall and Chalinor twice? These are crucial games if we want to win the league and I’m not sure he will.

From what I’ve heard he’s a top bloke, will be able to motivate them and the lads will love him - but whether he’s cut out to manage a promotion challenge I’m not convinced.

I agree with you that Stockport will win the league and Wrexham will finish second. I think we won’t be far behind but will probably fill the 4th/5th spot.

We won’t stick with Webb in my opinion. Genuine legs in the potential for a Paul Cook return.

I’d be amazed but also very happy if that happened. Suppose it depends if we have grounds to sack Rowe or not. If the rumours are true then we definitely do.

He has been suspended for alleged misconduct. No one really knows what the allegation is. There are rumours that it was sexual misconduct. These are only rumours though - I’ve no idea if they are fantasy, reality or somewhere inbetween.
I am still hoping they’re untrue and he’s back in his job next week.

Challinor made the right decision going there. Stockport will go well in League Two next season.

Sebastian Rusk must dread checking flash scores at 5pm on a Saturday.

The chances of him getting another managerial job lessen each week.

It's baffling that Spencer Rusk couldn't get any tune out of this obviously good squad of players

It was Dovers to lose, and they lost it, with 18 games to go their title chase is over.

Yes. I am sure most TFFers - even the weird ones - would have been able to get this expensively assembled Stockport side up there. Shame on young Samuel Rusk.

Lose to Chesterfield which I think we will do comfortably our season is done, we were only outsiders for play offs so not a big surprise but one less side for those fighting over 5-7th place to worry about.

Perhaps you need a new gaffer.

Shaun Rusk is out of work

8. Grimsby - P28 - 46 pts
9. Notts - P25 - 45 pts
10. Dagenham - P27- 42 pts

PPG
1. Boreham Wood 2.16
2. Stockport 2.07

Daggers are hanging onto this by a nail. Southend and Torquay may well be in the next update. I just want to see if both can continue with their run for a bit longer before including them.

Boreham Wood still topping the points per game chart and showing no signs of letting up.

Nice to see we are still in there. We haven't played for 3 weeks what are you all playing at.

I see we are stuck very nicely in seventh.
Until the last game of the season where we will undoubtedly finish eighth

All of us below the top three are going to have to go on some consistent run of form to get up to PPG.
Boreham Wood are in a pretty strong position really looking at the tables although I still think Stockport have the best chance of grinding their way to winning it.

If I had to pick one team to get promoted it would be Stockport County. Maybe Notts County. At least those 2 teams would bring some fans to our ground.

We're out of this - I've lost patience in Burchnall and, frankly, I'm losing faith in Notts as a club.

You don't mention the team with the highest average attendance and a higher average away attendance than either or those two. I wonder why?

If only we could get your level of publicity and didn't have two of the 'biggest' clubs in the world in our catchment area. But fair play your crowds have been impressive, just a pity you (like us) don't have a bigger capacity as our league game at your place could have been around the 20,000 mark.

Stockport & Wrexham for me given current form. Our injuries and inconsistency has shafted us well and truly. We might get a couple back for the play offs if we make them but still wouldn't fancy us to be able to beat Wrexham or anyone away from home.

The exposure our owners give us is nuts. With the TV show due out soon its only going to increase. Its crazy how much of an impact it actually has. Gives us a great advantage.

Whilst it's not quite the same for us and we do benefit from drawing fans from all over North Wales playing on the uniqueness of our location , Liverpool and Everton are about 30 minutes away, and the Manchester clubs under an hour away and it has always been a factor. The vast majority of football fans in the Wrexham area support one of those 4- which was especially annoying when we'd only be getting 3000 in amd the pubs would be full of people in United or Liverpool tops.

Building the new Kop is going to be huge for us (as is a new training ground which is the other major infrastructure being planned). Is there any scope to expand Edgeley Park? it's been a few years since I've been but I seem to recall you are fairly well hemmed in?

We've got room and plans for expansion the figure being bandied around is 20,000 which is probably a bit too much, think 15,000 would suffice for a few years and then see how much the fan base swells.

Just looking into this for next season. Remember standing on the Kop for a game v Oxford, it was part condemned then i think. Will it be Terraced, seated or half and half?

If you're going to get people away from Soccer Saturday investing in facilties like that is the way to go, with your plans for the future. Non League embarasses League 2 in a lot of ways facilties wise.
