I fear that we may have missed the boat as far as drawing a decent crowd at Wimbledon.
Had we had a decent team and got some wins under our belts we may have had a chance, but now I believe it is probably too late.
Remember. You never get a second chance to make a first impression!

Absolutely Victor. Plan in haste repent at leisure. Time will tell if we’ve messed this up. All entirely predictable.

At a loss for words :shock:
Hughes silence is telling. He warned in his pre season begging letter that it may look like it wasn't working and to both the untrained and old hands of Broncos shenanigans, that's exactly what it currently looks like. From proudly banging the drum for the opening gate they've started witholding attendance figures, whilst blowing the corporate trumpet ignoring the fact they've discounted corporate across the board.
The sooner Hughes admits he was AGAIN fed bullcrap and AGAIN allowed someone to steal a wage on the back of blaming everyone but themselves, then the sooner he can look at practical solutions.
As for the on the pitch issues. That's 100% Hughes' doing. We need 3 more wins and he needs to buy or rent us the players to do it. If we defeat town at home then it's a straight sprint between us and dewsbury......Hughes can make 5his a memorable year by admitting he was wrong and putting things right, but NOW....not when it's too late

Thanks for finishing that off. It has been a worry all day pondering:
I'm going to throw myself off a tall building
I'm going to run off with the au pair
I'm jumping on a plane to punch Hughes on the nose

The options are endless but now we know. :D

May 2023 is the next European expedition scheduled and for the first time since we left in 2009 I am not sure I'll bother with the broncos......I am keener to see the new Brentford stadium.

Watch the women's team. They are well organised and competitive. As for Hughes, his silence shows contempt for fans.

A month now since our brand new, much lauded, coaching team departed after a predictable but nonetheless disappointing start to the season. (FWIW It probably came a bit later than it should but I thought both sides handled the comms around it with some dignity.)

Have I missed the announcement or are we dawdling again or was no one interested in the job. Eccles seems to be doing well but he said he didn’t want to be a coach and one assumes there is a slightly different skill set from the now vacant fitness post and the vacant coach and assistant posts. We can’t keep busking it and hope for the best. Surely?

Well we busked it and hoped for the best last season after Wardy's departure .......................
