12 January 2015 : No Time To Lose
The media circus of the FA Cup Third Round tie against Manchester United has provided a pleasant but inevitably short term distraction from the main focus that Yeovil Town has - namely its League One status. Our position at the foot of the League One table looks increasingly precarious, even if Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Barnsley didn't actually alter the number of points that we need to make up in order to achieve safety.

We are 12 days into the month of January and it's not been a good one so far. That was made apparent by the squad that we had available to select against Barnsley - given that Calvin Brooks is largely on our books to boost training ground numbers rather than play in first team matches, we were down to our last 15 players. Since the turn of the year we've seen Brendan Moloney (on loan to Northampton Town), Aaron Martin (signed for Coventry City), Jordan Clarke (signed for Scunthorpe United), Ryan Inniss (recalled by Crystal Palace) and Tom Eaves (returned to Bolton Wanderers) leave the club, and in their place has come a big fat zero.

True, two of those players were largely out of our first team plans, but your primary concern is to have bodies available. When Ben Nugent committed his act of stupidity 26 minutes into Saturday's game, we didn't have any centre-back cover at all - three of the above five could have filled that hole on another day, whilst the other was a right-back who could have provided some reshuffling options. Certainly as things stand, the cupboard is very bare, and it urgently needs filling. Gary Johnson has made that position clear in all of his recent interviews - it is of course magnified by the urgent need to improve the quality of the squad as well as its size. If we are to get out of trouble, we need the weak points in our squad to be removed so that we begin to see more consistent performances during the second half of the season.

With that as the aim, losing Jordan Clarke to a club who were only six points ahead of us at the turn of the year, is a hammer blow. Yeovil's form before Clarke arrived: LLLDLL. Yeovil's form with Clarke in the side: DWLWLDW. Yeovil's form since Clarke got injured and dropped out of the team: WLLLLL. One player doesn't make a team, but I think it shows what genuine quality additions to the squad can do to a side's form when you get the opportunity to sign them, simply because it gives the other ten players in that side an uplift and a confidence boost. Players of Clarke's quality will win you games. Players of Clarke's quality will help get you out of trouble.

For that same reason, Saturday's news that midfielders Kevin Dawson and Simon Gillett could be out of the team long term, and possibly for the remainder of the 2014-15 season, is another hammer blow. Dawson's energetic workrate is exactly what any team needs and whilst he occasionally needs to be rested in such circumstances, when he is in the team it creates a real high tempo in midfield. Similarly Gillett has undoubtedly been our best signing of last summer, and has picked up so many Man of the Match awards, both via this site and through the club match sponsors, that such nominations have turned into a bit of an in-joke amongst Yeovil Town supporters. Both will be hugely missed whilst they are out and we have to hope that the problems they have are not as bad as currently feared.

I don't think it can be denied that we need new signings urgently. I've seen a few people point out that the January transfer window closes on February 2nd, and therefore we have plenty of time, but I don't believe that to be the case. When you are just trying to bring in one player to quietly top up your first team squad, then yes you can wait until that point, but realistically just to restore the numbers that we've lost we need four new signings (I've only counted Martin/Clarke once as they were never on our books at the same time) but the latest injuries and suspensions may need those numbers to be slightly higher. A centre-back (possibly with the ability to play as a right-back), a striker and then ideally another striker who can double up as a winger would seem to be the priorities, with a fourth probably dependent upon what the reality is on our injured players.

I'd perhaps cautiously suggest that the above is something that we can all roughly agree on (famous last words!) irrespective of who is managing the team. I make that point because no matter what your view is on Gary Johnson in all of this, the crucial bit is what we do going forward, and what sort of a team we need to get ourselves out of trouble. We need new players to be brought in whether Gary Johnson is managing the team, or whether Arsene Wenger fancies popping down to Huish Park to help us out. I covered the question of Gary's position all the way back on October 13th and having read back through that not too much of my views have changed. A few things have cemented into place though.

My view is that the vast majority of the reasons why we are bottom of the table at this stage lie in the set of players that were recruited to the club last summer. We've always had to employ a bit of hit'n'miss about our transfer dealings, simply because we pick up trialists, free transfers and untried academy youngsters and try to turn them all into established Football League players. We can't do what Bristol City have done and cherry-pick the best of League One's players by forking out six-figure transfer fees, knowing that they almost certainly have a proven quality player on their books. So we've always accepted the odd Keanu Marsh-Brown here, the odd Adam Morgan there, that has come onto our books and it hasn't worked out. Their contracts get ended early or they get shipped out on loan, and we take the hit on that. That process has happened under every manager that we've had that I can remember.

You hope that for every ten players that you bring in, that only one or two of those will turn out to be bad apples that you have to throw away. So partway through the season, you prune the tree, you remove those errant apples, and you move forward again, bringing in a couple of new additions. Hopefully by then you've got a good strong nucleus. The big problem, as I hinted at back in October is that we ended up with a far higher failure rate, and that is what is killing us. Gary pretty much admitted that it was a problem after Port Vale when he said "some of the players that are not performing are the ones that are on the higher money". Gary revisited the same issue last Thursday when he said "we've got to make sure that the boys that are on the higher wages that are not giving that value for money at the moment, if there is any interest in some of them" are moved out.

Gary's team selections over the course of the first 24 games suggest to me that his view on which players have failed, and my view on which players have failed are pretty close - and yes unfortunately they are likely to be the higher earners. As an experienced former Championship defender Brendan Moloney should have been a better signing than he was, whilst Aaron Martin played 17 games in the Southampton side that won promotion to the Premier League during 2011-12. Both of those were major failures, and I suspect were at the top end of our wage structures. Meanwhile Jakub Sokolik started well for us but seemed to fall to pieces, whilst established goalkeepers Chris Weale and Artur Krysiak disappointed with a number of in-match errors. Even of those players still being used in the matchday squad, I would question whether Gary feels that AJ Leitch-Smith's goal return of one in 24 appearances is what he'd hoped for. With the possible exception of Sokolik, all of these were established Football League players.

Not all have been bad signings. Midfielder Simon Gillett has been excellent, whilst Nathan Smith and James Berrett have been decent enough to leave them where they are - we've got to be realistic and recognise that the January transfer window is not going to be a cure-all for every irritance we may have, and some of that may come simply down to limitations of the playing budget. More recent signings such as goalkeeper Jed Steer, centre-back Stephen Arthurworrey and of course Jordan Clarke have been excellent acquisitions, and until Clarke's injury and our recent slip backwards I had some hopes that bar the obvious 'striker problem' that we were starting to build a possible nucleus to take us forward. The Clarke loss and the Dawson and Gillett injuries have dashed that a bit, whilst we still have to find out if we can keep Steer and Arthurworrey beyond January.

Where we stand right now is that Gary has removed some of those players who were not up to scratch, and I have an inkling that one or two others might have also have moved on by now were it not for injuries to themselves or other key players. So far, I'm in full agreement with the players Gary has either moved out or pretty much stopped selecting (although again injuries make it a little bit harder to be sure of certain things). He will then want to replace those players.

There are clearly a number of fans who think that Gary is the one who should be replaced - even one Yeovil Town director has used social media to make comments that make it clear where he stands on the subject. As with the situation after the Port Vale game, I can understand why people feel that way. However, I would take the view that if Gary is fired as manager then what you are largely doing is firing him for the mistakes that were made last summer with the recruitment of players - what he's done since then I've largely agreed with - Steer, Clarke, Arthurworrey, Inniss - but of course we've been firefighting since then and the crippling number of injuries have made that situation worse.

I've seen views that based on last summer's recruitment campaign that Gary shouldn't be trusted with any January transfer funds, and also some inferences that the Board are considering making a change. If that really is the view of the board, then the decision should have been taken after the Port Vale/Rochdale games in October, and acted upon at that time - given the main mistakes were made last June/July. Since then Gary has done an OK job in trying to patch things up through loans, but has been rather hamstrung from doing much more by the inability to make permanent signings and the League rules in terms of how many loan signings you can include in a matchday squad. Once we'd ended up with six loans, anything more wouldn't have improved the squad from there on, and so since then it's all been about trying to limp our way through as far as January 1st and to then make the necessary playing squad changes.

As we're now on January 12th, any theoretical change of management would see a new man need to be recruited, assess the current squad, find new players and bring them in, all before the transfer window closes. If that's too short a space of time then all we'll end up with is panic signings or another excess of iffy loan signings, and again the risk that some of those may also be mistakes. If we are to make changes (players or management!) then it has to be with the confidence that we are doing so to preserve our League One status. If we are doing it just as a means to get someone's head on a stick, then it won't be the right decision. It has to be because they have strong conviction that the decision to change management will see us retain our League One status.

The other bit which we as supporters can't judge are the costs of changing the manager. My understanding is that Gary's contract runs until the end of June, but of course any change in management may also require the board to change the backroom team as well, who I believe are on similar arrangements. The costs associated with that could be used to pay them off, but equally could be used as January transfer window money. If the available pot of money is used on changing the manager, then his replacement may come in to a far smaller pot to play with as a result. How much? Haven't got a clue - but unless the Board are willing to accept losses on their accounts for this season, then simple maths would tell you that it would have an impact and give a new man less to play with.

Finally, if the Board want to keep Gary at the helm, rather than to make a change, then they need to back him unconditionally, and to work as a team with him to give him his best chance of succeeding. Throughout this season there have been comments on social media, and leaks that have suggested that has not always been the case. If leaks are put out that undermine the manager, or if budget decisions or transfer decisions are made in a way that would thwart or delay signings because the trust isn't there, then of course the manager, team and club will be doomed to failure. Backing for the manager has to be 100 percent or zero percent - if the board dither or delay because they don't trust the manager, and yet won't pay for him to be removed, then they become part of the problem. Or to put in more blunt words: Back him, or sack him.

This is a fairly big week for the club's season as I see it. For the first time in a while, we have an empty week, with no fixtures, no FA Cup ticketing or media commitments to distract. However, after that seven day gap, we then go into Bradford City (home), Preston North End (away) and then Coventry City (home) as key League One fixtures. By the time we go into the first of those games, we need a committed way forward, we need some new players to have come in, and those decisions need to be used to guide us through the remaining 22 games of the season. Anything else isn't an option.

All the unsubtle hints being 'leaked' are that Gary will be sacked at the regular Monday board meeting today, so we'll find out soon enough.

Seb said ...

As much as it still pains me to say it, I'm very much in the Johnson Out camp.

I'd argue that it isnt just this summers recruitment he got so wrong, but the summer post-Wembley as well. By and large everything he has done since then in terms of players in and out has been to the detriment in quality of the squad. I know people still like to look at our Championship exploits with pride as 'little old Yeovil' battled valiantly against the big boys but the stark reality is with some better recruitment and better man management we would've stayed up. And even when we had a goalscorer in Ishmael Miller who looked like he might just keep us up, GJ sacked him off because he can't manage players that he can't dominate.

We have been near on woeful for at least a year (with the worst home record in the whole country!) and Johnson should count himself very lucky we drew Manchester United in the FA Cup. All the while GJ blaming everyone but himself and even the crowd after the capitulation in a must win game at home to Leyton Orient which incidentally was the final final straw for many.

Then you have Utd and a performance that should have been the springboard for a comeback only for it to be followed by another 'yeovil by numbers'. The culture of losing and acceptance at the situation all stems from the 'little old Yeovil' bullshit of last season. Enough's enough a change has to be made, it will cost the club one way or another but we are certainly going down without it and Gary being Gary who can never find failings in what he does will further taint a legacy that should be unbreakable but is rapidly turning to dust.

The floor needs to be scrubbed clean on the
management side.This mess is their doing,of that there is no doubt.Enough managers out there who would relish chance to take over so we should not delay, otherwise it's curtains.

Steve said ...

An excellent summation as always... In the short term we need to concentrate on getting the numbers in. Whether or not that keeps us up, the club needs to be more professional throughout if it is to prosper as a league club. Responsibility for that goes a lot further than the manager...

An interesting comment from Seb re Ishmael Miller.

Are we to assume it was the same situation with
Paddy Madden and possibly others?

Chris said ...

For me the whole club needs reforming - we have for too long portrayed ourselves as 'the little club', which although has some truth, we should be moving on having been in the league for more than 10 years now. There is too much of a non-league mentality off the field, and I agree with Seb, last year we could and perhaps should have stayed up. The whole mindset was wrong from the very start with the 'impossible dream' start at the first home game - it set the wrong tone, and we haven't looked up since then.

Dusty said ...

A good summary though rather generous to Gary in parts. I don't think Gillett has been excellent and I would say he has been a disappointment too given his pedigree. Yes Gary has twice been great for the club but did we really think we would stay in the Championship? I didn't but I thought we would make a better fist of it and now be in the play off mix in league 1. As said, in the last year Gary has made some poor judgements when recruiting players and moving them on. He rarely if ever accepts any responsibility - it's always jam tomorrow when he gets the right players and they perform as he thinks they should. To me Gary and his management team have got stuck in their approach and we all know if you keep on doing the same things you generally get the same results. The performance against Man U was not down to Gary but down to Man U being the opposition. We do have some very good players though and the team can play by the way - we get snippets of smooth clever football so why isn't this encouraged? Watching the team hoofing it up to Moore who is clueless most of the time and easy to defend against(because he has not been developed by Gary to play with movement and at least some pace - who is our attack coach?)is not worth the money we pay. Then again in the first 20 mins on Saturday we were all over Barnsley and we should have been 2-0 up! Unless there is a dramatic turn around and some one waves a magic wand lets write this season off and get ready for league 2 i.e. start building the team to get us back up to league 1.

Gary Johnson should be leaving this Club (whenever) with his head held high. Although history will ultimately judge him as a great manager, he is rapidly losing the respect of those who cherish him.
12/01/2015 11:04:24

Stu said ...

Largely agree with the comments made only to add that the problems started at the end of last season with such a clear out. We should have been able to keep Dunn and McAlastair.
Football is quite an easy game - stop the opposition from scoring - only now are we looking brighter with Arthurworrey and Steer - and score more than the opposition. Er....we have no meaningful striker.
Division 2 is coming and sad as it is, Gary will either be sacked or will walk in June. I feel a bit sorry for him (even though he signed the current squad) as reading between the lines, I don't feel he has been given the full support of the board.

Shame on the board of yeovil town football club,with the success the club has had over the last few years play offs, promotions, the Man Utd game etc we should never be in this position (freefall),all the board tell us is we need the supermarket deal to survive, rubbish! Short term gain, what we need is someone who will speculate to accumulate invest a bit of money into the club, build the supporters a proper bar invest in some quality players do all of these things and the crowds will come, I predict if things don't change YTFC will be playing back in the Conference in 2 years time the rot has to stop now and the deadwood needs to be chopped from the top first, i have stayed away from the Johnson debate as I feel he is only a small part of our current problems and removing him at this stage won't change a great deal, I sincerely hope our results pick up and we stay up but my glass is half empty I'm afraid.

Gill Green said ...

Quite simply too many players not up to League 1 standard, a situation made worse by two that are now long term injured. Just look at the past 3 seasons squads and compare player to player The captain needs to lead by example but looks demoralised at times and who can blame him. The loanees are poor in comparison to previous seasons (Clarke excepted)and presumably xxx xxxxxx costs us nothing although credit to him for being paid by someone to kick a ball (albeit badly). Of course we don't know what goes on, apart from what we see on the pitch. Maybe GJ had very little choice available to him but his Summer signings looked weak at the time and have proved to be since. He now needs backing, and luck, to acquire two decent proven strikers, two competent defenders able to read the game and concentrate and a midfield playmaker at the very least, to stand any chance of remaining in League 1. Currently we look a very poor League 2 side at best.

Over the years, clubs generally end up in a league position that is determined by their resources, and hence by the number of spectators. That makes Yeovil a league 2 club. However, over the past 10 we have out performed our size and that is largely down to the skills of Gary, Terry and Darren.
I am always surprised to hear fans calling for the removal of a manager with a proven track record on the basis of short term performance by the team. In my opinion our best chance of staying up this season resides with this management team. I would even go so far as to say that, if we go down, by far our best chance of winning promotion next year rests in retaining this management team.
I see the Johnson, Skiverton, Way trio as the reason we have NOT just been little old Yeovil for the past decade and, were they to go, I think we are far more likely to return to that small club status.

Great article, and whilst I am not baying for Gary's blood, I think he needs to walk out with head held high than ruin what he has helped to build over teh past 10 years.

Ever since the Portsmouth debacle, I think he has lost respect and his own interest is lacking. Progressively as the season goes on you look towards the dugout at away games and it looks more as if they are waiting for a bus than being narrowly beaten by (insert any of the 23 other sides) it happens to be that day.

Not a massively differing side to the Utd team was played against an incredibly shabby Barnsley but they didn't seem creative, and the only one creative being Leitch Smith being replaced with a wet round the ears defender due to one players rash play.

Thanks Gary but the atmosphere amongst support (particularly away) is noticeably negative nowadays.

Can we also possibly assume that the abundance of injuries is down to the players fitness ? are they being prepared properly ? Is the training up to a high level .

PBG said ...

Recruiting with no money in League One is a crap shoot, Johnson has done well over the years, and the Club failed to put a business plan in place to keep us in the Championship. The Directors are old men in their twilight years with no ambition or tolerance for risk and therefore will not and cannot give Johnson the support he needs. He has done his job at Yeovil, the Board haven't. IMO he will leave in the summer, Hello League 2, a lesser budget, and the whole thing starts again with some poor devil in the hot seat.

Pity the fans who have to put with all this.
12/01/2015 12:55:28

glovergreen said ...

In reply to Vince, you have to question it as a lot of players seem to be getting injured during the week.

Now that the 'magic sponge' of Utd has gone, I am very disappointed that the players couldnt continue that spirit against Barnsley. Heads have definitely dropped again.

chrisl said ...

Whilst there are many that criticise GJ, I believe that you must look higher up the ladder for the culprits responsible for our present position. I have said before that the board and every one involved in the clubs decision making are at fault and nothing that has happened since has altered my view: We are a league club with the ambitions and outlook of a Conference club. We have not built on our initial promotion from the conference and we certainly haven't taken the opportunity presented by the last ten years or so of holding our own in the league and, indeed, fighting above our weight. I have seen nothing happen in the club that suggests that we are no longer in the conference and this is due to the boards mentality. The team has had to struggle for a number of years and we have had the odd success but again nothing has changed and we are now starting to run out of the puff needed to keep us up. From what I can see it is inevitable that we will go down again at the end of this season (I would like to be proven wrong)and then we will be staring conference football in the face. Something drastic has to happen to prevent this from happening and this goes beyond changing the manager or a few players. It goes to the heart of the club's workings and to the individuals who have sat back in their seats and have not pushed the club forward on the back of the last ten years of relative success!

Jamie said ...

Great fan of what GJ has done for the club, but it now seems one quote applies to both Arsene Wenger and GJ.....'thanks for the everything, but it's time to move on. The deep routed problem though will always be at boardroom level
12/01/2015 13:34:15

Mark said ...

Will be a real shame to see the current management team go but sadly I think it's inevitable. Presumably a new manager would be offered a bonus to keep the club in Lge 1 and that incentive would surely lead to a concerted effort to recruit the right players to do the job. A new management team ideally would look to be in place for 20 games remaining. Another issue for the board to consider is when fans vote with their feet and apart from the obvious cup match attendances are very poor. Maybe a new manager with credibility and a proven record will stimulate some interest in not only the fans but also some finances released by the board.

Yeovil have lost most Saturdays for over a year now,and it upsets me each time.
Much is ,as stated on here down to the non league small club
attitude in the club.
Unless that is reversed,and one doubts it will be,then we will
Head for the non league status we have had for all but 12
Seasons in our existence.
But please don't blame Gary Johnson,you get the feeling he was never given enough money to make a fist of this season
and probably the one before.
Sad times indeed

camberwick green said ...

I don't believe that moving Gary on will achieve anything. Furthermore I don't expect the board to do so. Normally at this stage of the season you would be looking to make the odd tweak or two, we however are (still) in need of radical surgery. Too much surgery I fear to be realistically achievable. Gary is at his best when he is at a club which is forward thinking and ambitious. I suspect that such ambition as YTFC possesses is brought to the table by Gary himself. He may feel that he needs a fresh challenge elsewhere come the end of the season as (league 1 or League 2) a better alternative than continuing to push a boulder up a hill at YTFC.

frustrated said ...

I agree with the comments.GJ & coaching team only
partly to blame as always the real culprits are the board.the club is not run on a proper business footing, the club is dying through lack of investment but they are not making any attempt to attract this because they do not want to loose any control over their little empire. last season a property man from Bournemouth kept coming to the matches but once the board were aware of this an announcement was made declaring the club were not interested in any outside finances. we paid for our season tickets on the early bird scheme last feb with a cheque being sent in feb 18 & it was cashed on feb 25, I would like to know why cash meant for the 14-15 season was being spent by the club 3 months before the previous season had ended. perhaps these sums of cash together with the bulk of the championship money was spent on legal costs/ surveyors costs of the ill-fated, &badly planned Range store development. money which should have been spent on the team. In the 13 years we have supported the Glovers not a penny has been spent on facilities but we are expected to pay top prices.every year the period from Aug.-Nov approx. is almost a waste of time for the supporter as the mgr. is forced to virtually rebuild a team with very limited resources.consequently, we see a team lacking cohesion & confidence, the constant changing of players & over-reliance on loan players only serve to weaken both team spirit but also the enthusiasm of the fans who wish to follow a team they know.

Jordan Clarke's loss to scunny says it all, they paid a fee for him together with a two & a half year contract, we have been told scunny had come into some money. Well have we not come into some money as well! perhaps scunny are more willing to spend, finally, regarding making money& the clubs total lack of any business acumen,we wanted to buy the commemorative scarves for the Man U game, walking up the road to the ground at about two o clock we were stopped by some people selling these scarves who explained they were from Manchester & profits made would be going to Man. U, but Yeovil had sold out of their own merchandise,so we purchased from them,impressed by their honestly. at the same time these Man U sellers intended going to the arrow & the airfield tavern to sell further scarves. we went to the club shop on going into the ground & it was true they had sold out! so I wonder how much money we lost because of poor planning, did I wonder if anybody from the ground bother to sell merchandise at any of the pubs nearby? another opportunity missed to make money so what the club really needs are business people who know how to make money then the football side will become a lot easier

If Gary has still got the drive and determination to save our club from relegation he would be my choice to continue,I'm sure by his own standards he would be bitterly disappointed with his signings this season ,but I for one am fed up with a lot of the nonsense that has come out of the boardroom over many,many years

Gary is the only manager I can remember in my 44 years on the terrace to bring any notable success to YTFC. We've had our share of donkeys and as we can't afford to pay for what you'd consider a big management name the next man in the dog pit will either be Skivo or someone like him. Even if we could afford a known manager he'd want more money to spend on signings than we have. We can't even afford to keep young Jordan Clarke, who I'm sure Gary did his best to hang on to. Whatever you might think, sacking Gary will send the club into chaos and we'll go down anyway. So stop baying for his blood and back him from the terrace.

In the 70s the "ELECT YEOVIL campaign asserted the club would need 5,000 a week through the turnstiles to sustain the team in what is now called League 2, we only just managed that in the Championship. The small club mentality oddly comes from the fact that we are indeed a small club albeit one that has been punching above it's weight for a decade. We have no sugar daddy and little by way of support through the turnstiles which is not going to change unless we start charging sheep to stand on the terrace. The Commercial benefits of having facilities at the ground needs to be addressed soon because the club has to get money from somewhere other than a big cup tie every 10 years or so. Unless the town doubles in size or someone with a fortune to give, rather than loan the club appears out of the mist as it did with Jon Goddard Watts, we are where we are. Rather than bemoan the small club mentality embrace it. Whatever happens at the end of this season we'll be higher in the football pyramid than we were for the preceding 100 years. Dreaming is one thing. Reality is something quite different.

Problems seem to always been board level.
After last season we lost too many leaders out on the pitch Mcallister (shouldnt have gone ) Webster was solid (of course we couldnt match Millwall ) then Ayling going too lose back four and goal keeper
any squad would struggle.

Kevin Dawson Simon Gillett and Joe Edwards have been our better players now Dawson and Gillett out all season we have big problems.
We need a decent striker but they need service have in a enough quality in midfield .

Also why have so many players falling out with GJ

If Gary goes who would be the best manager we could get ?

Why the hell was Dawson picked for the cup tie? We were never going to win the match, now he's out for possible the rest of the season, a huge loss. Mr Fry has said the internal resources will be sort first to put right where the club is going wrong, no recruiting till then and the Mr Johnson will be told what he can do!! I have a feeling that no money will be made available, because Mr Fry has said the cup money will allow the club to finish the season in the black, he also said without the store we will end up in the conference, he may well get his wish!!

I know this is a bad season for us but I wonder how much GJ has been set up to fail by our unambitious board? When a Man City youth striker is being brought in to solve our goals problem and then a player who was playing for Bristol Rovers a year or two back it feels like we are paying out peanuts when we must surely have some money coming in? I have also seen one of our board members making comments on Twitter about 'P45 Time' and stuff like that which is obviously about GJ and that just shows up how unprofessional our board are in using a public Twitter account to suggest he's going to get a long serving employee of the club who has brought the club a lot of success the sack. No wonder there's no loyalty in football with people like that on our board!! Stop your sniping on Twitter and get out there and give GJ the Man United money for a striker and let him help us stay up!

We are where we are, what we need is all the glory man utd supporters to keep coming through the turnstiles week in week out. The board and the management teams hands are tied due to lack of funds.As a small town we all need to get behind our small club and show real support. We as fans can help push this club forward regardless if we are starting a fresh in league two.

Great article again. Some good comments.
I would like to come back to the point of where all the Championship money went. If the money had been spent on the facilities rather than players I could understand, or if it had gone on players, but no it appears to have disappeared.

John Fry mentioned last year that he had 2 million available near the end of the Championship season. Why was this money not invested into the team or club? As people have alluded to already there is absolutely no ambition from the board.
I personally feel that Fry and his cronies would have left had the supermarket gone through, with a nice pay packet. Now I feel that the board will continue to take what they can, giving the manager just enough to assembly a team.
My final point is when is the crowd going to direct it's feelings towards the board. As fans we pay their wages and they should be accountable, and the club dealings should be transparent.

Camelgreen said ...

I'm afraid as fans we don't have any power in pushing the club forward, the only people with any power are the two owners, we all know what nearly happened when our main share holder was involved at our Championship friends in Dorset. Him and Mr Fry know their investment is safe , as the owners of several acres prime real estate. The town population has grown considerably in the last 30 years our gates haven't, so unfortunately that's not the answer, we should be looking for outside investment but the owners won't do than, they wouldn't want lose control of their little money maker, if they have ever invested any of their own money the fans would like to know. The person who said Mr Johnson is the only manager to achieve any thing in 44 years, what about Russell Slade, Brian Hall and Graham Roberts

kevin said ...

simply solution, we must hope Fry and Hayward sell up and go. New owners we could hope would put in board capable of using funds to better the club when success comes along, not like the present owners keep cutting budgets to the point of relegation to league 2, and the financial loss there will swallow up any profit made by the game against Man Utd, and possibly lead to a bankrupting of this great club.

Rhino said ...

Great article as usual Badger. On the subject of strikers, why weren't we in the hunt to sign Matt Tubbs? One of the leading scorers in League 2 with a great track record ends up getting signed by Portsmouth. No disrespect to Kieffer Moore, but he is all we have to show for the 4million ish we apparently earned from our rise to the Championship. The ground is an embarrassment to me whenever I take non-Yeovil fans to see a game at Huish Park. It looks like we have been victims of an earthquake disaster; a tent as a Supporters Bar and shipping containers as a base for the Supporters Club and suchlike is appalling after being at the site for twenty years and more. How often do we read 'the beer tent will not be open to visiting supporters'; so shortsighted when we can't even take income from visiting fans by having a proper bar. I just hope they don't try an extra-early season ticket offer again for next season as I will have to dig deep into my soul to actually shell out the money. Unfortunately we are all being treated as idiots by the Board (GJ included);they will surely run out of goodwill amongst us fans and the Manager very soon.

John Parish Nortnampton said ...

I agree with much of the above comment I believe this is the worst Yeovil Team since we entered the football league and it is no where near as good as the team that won the conference . some of the decisions taken by the club in the last two seasons have been poor and I believe one of the biggest mistakes ever made by this club was to sell Paddy Madden to Scunthorpe ,he has scored 14 goals for Scunthorpe this season nearly as many as our whole team put together, I also agree with the comments about Ishmael Miller he scored 10 goals in the short time he was with us yet he and the manager fall out and he walks away ,good bye Championship and soon goodbye division one,surely its the job of management to get the best out of their players rather than fall out with their best players and then see them move on .
The recruitment of players this season has left a lot to be desired ,but have the management got the best out of them as you can see I now live in the Midlands and three of our players have recently gone to clubs in this area, IE Brendan Maloney, Aaron Martin and Chris Dunn all not deemed good enough for Yeovil but getting good reports for their new clubs, Northampton ,Coventry and Cambridge . Why can other managers get the best out of these players .Many of the other recruits have not been up to standard ie Leitch Smith one goal all season and I am yet to be convinced that Kieffer Moore is football league standard and why have we got four goalkeepers .
I agree Gary Mcallister should not have been released a new defence could have been built around him al so I agree with the comments re Jordan Clarke we have just come in to money re Manchester Utd so why didn't we use this to sign him from Coventry and yes pay a transfer fee if required I agree we seem to be a club lacking ambition .
I also feel that the lack of numbers on the bench at Barnsley was a shambles ,we transfer players out when we don't have enough players to fill the bench and why was Adam Morgan not on the bench he is on a two year contract and I presume we are still paying him, this signing seems yet another big mistake yet surely when you are short of bench numbers you pick every available player, for a division one team to have only five on the bench makes us look like a pub team .
I am due hip surgery in two weeks time and I don't know if I will make it down to Yeovil again this season ,I fear that the next time I see Yeovil it will be in division two .
When I cant get down to Yeovil I watch Leamington in Conference North ,if drastic action is not taken soon I wonder how long it will be before Yeovil are playing at that level ,don't say it cant happen Stockport County where in the Championship not many years ago .
John Parish supporting Yeovil for 62 years .

Stewart Barnes said ...

Seeing Swindon go top tonight with three goals from two ex
Yeovil players sums it all up .
Add to them Mallon,Bowditch ,Agard,Ayling and other strikers
Banging in goals who were once ours just shows we can't keep good strikers and players.
So League two might be our level as we just haven't got the money or intent to get good players for Lge One.

Tony Green said ...

If the CO-OWNERS do not make some cash available where do they think it is coming from. For too long now we the supporters have been blamed for the lack of money available to enable good players to be bought in, because we have not been turning up in our thousands to watch the matches. Normally when a club is going through bad patches as we have and especially last season the CO-OWNERS make some investments in the playing staff. What have our CO-OWNERS put in and besides John Fry who are the other CO-OWNERS, why do we spend our money on schemes that any sane person who knows the way SSDC operate would not touch with a barge pole. So go out leave the pitches as they are and encourage outside investment, the supporters passed the buckets round to get cash into the club where have the board been with their buckets. Any way getting rid of the management team is not a cure, who any lets see any one name some would take over when they see that they have gate receipts only to buy players with!!

Glovers til I die, but until the club has a wake up call at board level, we will always sadly be a conference side with great aspirations.
The supermarket was a total falsehood, and I can offer more, as there was never going to be one at HP.
It breaks my heart to say that I fear the board disconnect is so huge the free fall will not stop this season. We are Rushden and D again.
I love YTFC but there is a Tolkien book titles 'there and back again.....
so so sad, northern glover

PS I have even stopped going to watch them...for the first time in my 38 years as of following my beloved team...
13/01/2015 06:32:24

Em said ...

I think as fans we need to make our feelings clear and let the board know we blame them. After a season in Championship also we got a good fee for Luke Ayling

We need new owners to spend money to save our club as we our heading back to non league look at how Tranmere are struggling in league two

camelgreen said ...

The season ticket holders have been duped into stumping up their ticket money earlier and earlier, what will happen this season, February!! After 60 years I will be thinking long and hard about renewing mine, maybe do what a lot of fans do and just go to selected games. Perhaps GJ should try playing Leitch- Smith at centre forward, it worked at Crewe.

glovergreen said ...

I think something needs to happen regarding reading the motto on all of our shirts. Achieve by Unity. The team on the pitch seem to behave as (mostly) 11 individuals and the management team and board seem disinterested, and then they have the nerve (including some of our own fans) for slating the 150 or so fans who went to Barnsley to support. I was there and at Oldham with 111 fans who saw us play some of the best football in a year. The board need to listen to the fans who turn up as we are getting sick of seeing inconsistent play week to week.

Re camelgreen: Completely agree, AJ Leitch Smith seemed to do alright as a forward, and to be fair he seems to be one of our more creative players when actually given a chance in any position. Similarly it was hardly surprising that Tome Eaves didnt score when he spent most of the time as a winger - completely ridiculous given the obvious 'target man' player he is.

We all need to pull together at least as fans to let the Club know that we are not happy. All that seems to be happening are random unprofessional media comms about P45's and nothing happening. We could spend our money sacking the management team (who will leave in 5 months anyway for nothing) and not spend it strengthening the squad. All of this is distracting from the obvious fact that in the meantime we are clearly not strengthening our squad due to off field distractions. If we think it is going to get better by saturday we are deluded but agree completely with the original article - no time to lose.

ACHIEVE BY UNITY

Dear Mr Fry,
for the sake of our wonderful football club, please wake up and take a reality check. You only have to see the contrast between ground facilities to see how far behind even basic standards HP and its structure is.
I have just decided to postpone my planned introduction of my grandchildren to the wonder that can be following YT, I am simply too embarrassed...made worse by the fact we were able to hold our own against Man Utd last week. What does that tell you...desperately sad northern glover

Northbank Green said ...

Further to my earlier comment, it appears as though some of our supporters are starting to believe the boards Bull...! about supporter numbers as being the reason why we have no money so think on this before you accept the little old yeovil theme, the town may only have about 45000 people living in it but being the only league club within 40 miles we haven't got lots of competition for supporters like most of the other L1 teams we could possible pull in sopporters from a population much larger, south somerset alone has approaching 250000 residents, so I will repeat the board need to show some committment to the club invest in some decent players so we can win some games(who wants to pay 25 to watch their team lose, occassional supporters won't pay 25 to see a team that is always losing), build the supporters bar update the facilities then the support will return and gates will improve, it's time the board put their incredibly short arms into their deep pockets, stopped moaning about low crowds and failed supermarket deals and did something that the supporters can see is positive.

Can we put James Berrett in the category of 'Gary's dodgy summer signings'? I have not seen him make any impact in the games I have watched.
13/01/2015 19:35:59

Mark said ...

In the short term i.e. remainder of this season and duration of next, which suits the boards finances, pay off the current management team with a termination of their contracts whilst offering a financial incentive to incoming team to remain in League 1 or keep current set up who will inevitably walk away in June when club are relegated and next season build again in League 2 with higher attendances due to cheaper ticket prices and top of the table action.

Merv said ...

Great blog & heartfelt comments from many. Don't want to see the management team go but alas Gary's gambles haven't come off this time round. Still, they're trying to put that right. Want admission charges to be much lower - we are laughing stock, higher than some premier league. Hope latest plans for Huish park site are better than the foodstore, which contravened just about every key piece of national planning policy, and the advisors/ consultant fees will likely have been crippling on something that should never have even been contemplated to start with I reckon. Would prefer dosh spent on lowering ticket prices / improving the ground - was the same in Championship as it was in the Conference - ridiculous. We are still in the football league though.... we can still turn things around if all pull together - fans - players - management team - board (achieve by unity) COME ON!
14/01/2015 21:15:28

Andrew said ...

Read this latest board assessment, I truly despair. If we are so limited by outside constraints at this point there is unlikely to be a better scenario arising during the rest of the season.
Reference to the transfer window rather ironic given the fact we are over half way though that month already
16/01/2015 06:25:34

andrew said ...

Merv,I tried to find out how much had been spent as, I believe that had I as an architect made the same mistake, I would, expect my client to be chasing for the return of consultant fees as the very least.
The whole Planning application was not fit for purpose...it frightens me to think that, but it is true. I told the board that when I met them last April at the Wigan game, and made my own recommendations for future strategy. It fell on deaf ears
16/01/2015 13:29:37

Oxford Green said ...

What perplexes me a bit is that we desperately need a goalscorer. Yet we showed Rueben Reid the door and he's banged in 13 for Plymouth; and Madden was shown the door and he's banged in 13 for Scunny. It's either poor judgment or poor man-management, either way those decisions lie firmly at Gary's door, we're going to have to cough up for a striker when we had two apparently perfectly good ones on our books who were let go.
