Rugby Town seem to be doing quite well this season (3rd).

Given their setup (nice ground; nice clubhouse) and the size of the Town its a shame they are at such a level (9); They surely should be able to compete at Boro' level.

Win at any cost? football is in the entertainment business, if you enjoy the dross we are serving up at the minute, i hope you leave every match fully entertained? I know many who are not.

It's a balance. For me entertainment (or intent to try) is very important. I remember watching many games in premier during the 18/19 season and thinking "why the hell do I stand in the cold watching crap when I have this". T
Taking a boro game with a boring 1-0 win will not attract new supporters and thats what the club needs.

Using premier as an example.
Mourinho got Man United 2nd, won Europe league cup and (I think) won the league cup YET he was soon sacked.
Houghton at Brighton got success (staying in premier), but was not liked due to style.
I know two spurs supporters who have fallen out of love with their club because of Mourinho.

The likes of Man City & Liverpool have shown exciting/attractive football can bring success.
Norwich also played attractive football.

I don't see why the ambition to see attractive football is bad. Its not as if playing cautions/un-attractive football guarantees results.

WOW vs talk about dreamland Man C ( just had their European BAN lifted for overspending ) Liverpool Man U Spurs Brighton and " Norwich "played attractive football ......
obviously you haven't got SKY or BT sport... they hardly got a fuckin kick in most games i watched and lets not forget the one big club missing from that list THE BORO

if you truly believe that by following a non league club who pay 300 quid a week you are going to watch the
" beautiful game " i wish you and every every dreamer on here the very best.
ive always tried to debate on here since retiring 13 yrs ago with a semblance of common sense and realism
however there comes that point when you think you know what im wasting my time here.
ok ive finally got it.
anyway whatever your stance i wish you all well
Ta Ra.

I want to see attempts at playing attractive football. We have not seen this in last 2 years.

Banbury (and others like even Loughborough) tried to have plans other than hit the front ASAP with long hopeful punts. So it is possible at this level.

If you read my analogy properly you would see I was using the premier on how teams at top and bottom could place attractive football and how some teams that don’t/didn’t don’t care for their manager much.

Brighton (under houghton) had success (stayed in the league), but try and find any Brighton supporter who was disappointed when he left. Same with mouriniho at Man United - two trophies and 2nd place but not likes

WRT Norwich - do you think their season would have been much different if the played horrible football? If so, why?

I only turn up to see us win, ugly, dirty, ruthless, effective - I dont care.
We don't have anything near that in the league either that or even entertaining.
Tactics and current management are not up to it, cannot understand why with theplayes we had last season and this and the season before In NN we had far better players.
TBH the last 5 years of ineptitude (and the fucking bullshit of Hawkins) have nearly driven me to give up for good a few times.

Agree with you, personally relating it to Boro have found the football played under JG last couple of seasons a chore to watch, would love to see us play football like we played in the days of BP again but can’t see that happening anytime soon.

come off it
firstly where did i comment on how well we play or how entertaining we are. nowhere, correct.
i made the point that if we played entertaining football and lost 6-1 what would be the reaction on here
i tell you what for nothing it takes two sides to serve up a good match
so Rugby thrashed their opponents, is that correct ?
so what was your assessment of the opposition L 6-1.
rubbish or entertaining ........ that is the point i was making
one which you decided to ignore by slating me and the Boro.
which lends me to believe you dont have an answer do you ?
villa thrashed Liverpool ask a pool fan what they thought of the game
or even more appropriate ask a Man U fan what he thought of the scoreline/performance AT HOME to spurs
to the neutrals YES great entertainment. but their not in the business of entertaining the neutrals are they.
if you think that football managers are going to survive in a job by being entertaining
all i can say is your delusional. because thats the real world like it or lump it.
football is all about results whether its Rugby T. or Barcelona.
NO ! watch how many get the bullit before christmas never mind a season.
and just for you if Barcelona play attractive football without getting the results the stadium will be half empty in no time. the manager will be a goner

At 2-1 Ellsmere were still in the game but Rugby from a league above ran out worthy winners. To there credit Ellmere still tried to play the right way.Hence still an entertaining game.

btw im not for one minute criticizing your opinion of the game
plus im not pouring cold water on what you viewed. i was not even there
the point i was making was from what side do you view the game from.
the neutral would be entertained
anyone connected with Ellsmere would not be.
thats the way football works.
entertain without results
or play crap and win
you choose
yes we all want to win and play well, including me ....... the problem is often the opposition, who dont agree.

lastly going off topic and i dont care which side of the fence your on
every time we dont win JG is criticized on here...... tell me that is not true.
and yes we have played some shit since he took over that is also true
but how many also tell us we have to live within our means.

Have so far tried to keep out of this but got to say i've been seriously unimpressed with what i've seen so far this season . The football we are playing is depressingly poor and the management seem to have one plan , hoof ball . When it doesn't work and it invariably doesn't plan b seems to be just carry on doing it . I could accept a certain style to an extent if results were good but there not . If were going to play unattractive football and lose what's the point might as well try and entertain and lose .
Bury Town play a level below us yet played some nice passing football . Passing along the ground through the thirds with good movement and there a level below us so the level we play at is no excuse .

✔️

During first half the radio were contacted by two well known supporters to “stop saying long ball by breedon as the forum would go wild”. For the next 30 mins they tried all sort of ways not to say it. It must have been “not said” every 2 minutes

Yes but IMO football is an entertainment buisiness and I want attempts to entertain.

If all that matters is results then why go to games?

I have no problem with us hoofing it on occasions if it's what's needed and we get the result , just not all the time , and it ain't as if we're getting the results . The equalizer against R&D showed these players can play football so why aren't they .
