    Have we now reached it?

    Losing tamely to the mighty Fleetwood Town in front of three thousand people, next to bottom in the third division, injury-affected squad full of mostly raw young players, no home to call our own, Academy under threat, owners universally despised, minimal budget, fan base lost interest, no celebrations for 30 years. And seemingly no cavalry coming over the hill.

    The worst situation in my 50-odd years of support. So am I being foolish in suggesting we might look back on that as the low water mark today, or does it have to get even worse before it gets better?

    ONLY the owners can take this club by the scruff of its neck and sort things out , They dont seem to want too or able too .

    I agree - I can hardly bring myself even to post here any more. Gutted with the decline of our once proud club. I can only see things getting worse from this point onwards. I think we're going to follow the fate of the likes of Rushden and Diamonds unless there is root and branch change

    I fear we have not reached the our lowest point. Our owners business model is not working for the club. So far every manager they've appointed has failed to bring success. There is no evidence to suggest the repeating the same thing over and over again will lead to a different outcome.

    You can blame mowbray if you wish I blame him for some things such as a bad transfer window especially.

    But overall all managers here have failed and they have been good men. Succeeded elsewhere. No one succeeds here. Why? We all really know the reason.

    The football club is toxic and bad off the pitch. Whilst all this is going on with the shit going on we can bring in mourinho and it won't make a difference. This club has been dying for years now and no change of manager will stop that.

    Tony mowbray like the others Pressley et al are all for all hard working men football men. They can't do it. No one can. And if we get the championship we have already stated we can't sustain it. What's that about?

    Off the pitch it needs sorting and on the pitch will improve.

    As it is we need someone to pull the trigger and put us all out of our misery. It can't go on like this.

    This notion of a toxic club is crap. Pressley Coleman Mowbray and thorn all exceeded the average management survival time as a league manager. They were longer serving than most. We are not any different to other clubs in that respect.

    Other clubs occasionally have some sort of success. We don't.

    Coleman fell lucky with Gary Speed already having sorted the majority of the Welsh squad. Coleman has ridden on his back.

    Well it isn't is it? He's had one reasonable tournament. He was fucking awful as CCFC manager and that's all we need to know.

    Add to this he has a superstar in Bale and you'd have to say he was massively lucky.

    It was unlikely that he would fail with the squad he inherited.

    He came to CCFC as a way of getting back to managing a British Club.... along with the decent "Wedge" being offered.

    The OP was basically asking if we think it'll get worse. I don't think it will on the field because if we don't get a win soon, I think SISU will act.

    Nobody thought they would sack Elvis, but they did. And they supposedly found the funds to pay him off, and employ TM, and give him a few bob. They found a way to avert relegation when it became clear that he'd lost the dressing room and we were heading for the trap door...and though they won't plough loads into the club, they'll do their best to keep it afloat (and they can always cash in on the next Madders/Wilson etc).

    Just MHO lads, we all have them and they'll all differ.

    I live in Wales, and have done for over 30 years, and yes he has got it on his CV, but a hell of a lot of Welshmen think he rode on Speeds' coat tail.

    No, we are only second from bottom.
    How can we ever hope for long-term success when we have such a short-term outlook? We lose our best players, our best prospects and all the loanees at the end of every season and have to start pretty much from scratch again.
