IF NPL is taking up the boards time, this is where we need to become a more professional outfit. Its not affecting Brentford and their stadium move. They are doing ok in the Championship. Just goes to show how far we are behind some clubs, we are still run like a non league outfit. We need to sort it out on the pitch before worrying about NPL. At this rate the club will have alienated the support by the time we get there.

Lurker - think that's a bit too optimistic 😂

Matt Breach (I think it was) in a recent article introduced the forthcoming strategy review with a "now that the new stadium is taking up less of our time" context.

37th for me
Other question is when will there be a point (before we get there) where NPL isn't taking all the time of both boards, meaning we'll potentially continue to crash and burn for 2 seasons.

Tudor: Doesn't that viewpoint, if intended to be as punitive as it sounded, imply that the board took on 'too much power' for the wrong reasons?

Not necessarily saying I disagree, but all the talk of blaming the board for inaction re Ardley and other issues implies that they are not doing their best possible in the circumstances, or that they are acting with questionable motivations and intentions.
The biggest shock would be if Surrey Bob made a comment that wasn't nasty and negative about the club, it's employees or fans.

Alex The Don - if the board have taken too much power/responsibility on themselves, and are unable/unwilling to delegate, then that's absolutely and totally their fault, and they are to blame for any cracks that appear elsewhere.

"footballing operations"
Agree with YW. Thing is we probably discovered our glass ceiling is more than a few spots above the relegation zone and in football teams like us who hit that tend to drop a couple of times.

We can't go bottom tonight but we could Saturday. Bluewomble, agree this isn't even about L1 now, we need change cos we'd be stuffed in L2 at this rate.

I feel it may well get even worse before it gets any better. And it's a great shame NA can't walk now knowing he's had more than enough time and done a great job overall.

Plain facts are...we need a totally NEW and fresh approach from coaches and management team. We can then look and move forward into the new year
FFS Wimbledon just win a fucking game. Or even a point. Just a point. Is it so much to ask

What gripes the most and is the biggest disappointment is the distinct lack of any acceptence or action from our board although it's so clear to anyone else we are not turning anything around.

I however feel yet another loss this evening even they will have to act
Wish we still had members of both promoted teams. Both days in Manchester and Wembley I just knew we were not going to lose. Now its acceptance that we have turned to a bunch of softies with no fight or desire for the battles ahead.

If we do drop this season, I'm afraid we'll drop like a stone into the Conference. We've come to far to wreck things. There has to be changes
Its a pretty poor show seeing a Wimbledon side which is gutless and rudderless. This only comes from those in charge and the buck stops with the management team. This side is totally unrecognisable from the one that got promoted.

The Conference team had steely characters as did the playoff winners.
Listening to Ian Wright on the radio last night. He said he had spoken to some of the Arsenal players who told him they were training much harder under Emrey than they were with Wenger.

We need a shake up somewhere at the club.
"Good news is we can’t go bottom tonight"... True but sad - what a sign of the times with that being the limit of our optimism.

#Ardleyout - no idea if this exists but it bloody well should. Love the plane + banner idea too.
Well, we might be bottom by the time of the cup game so being knocked out by HB won't be a shock. What will be a shock is if Ardley is still our manager by then!

Good news is we can’t go bottom tonight and I reckon even if we lose we may stay where we are. Tough games for Bradford and Oxford.

One way or another, we need some fresh ideas on how to succeed on the pitch in this league. Those ideas could come from a director of football, a couple of new coaches with wise heads on their shoulders, or you go the whole hog and change the manager. One thing seems certain to me, doing nothing gets you more of the same!

Luton have managed to get the best out of Hylton, and again it comes down to management. Ardley hardly got Hylton pulling up any trees and is just the type of player we need now. Niggly irratating indivdual who'll probaly score on saturday,

Trebor, in view of the response from the Chair of the DT to the original question on WebJam, I doubt you will get a detailed answer. To be fair, a lot of these sort of discussions cannot be given on a public forum. I imagine that Bassett who was on the panel to appoint Ardley, and has been at numerous home games recently, will be the expert advice to whom the DT/AFCW Boards ask for a considered opinion. Whether or not he is the right person for such an ad hoc role is a bigger question.
