I agree, it's amazing given we have not been in League 1 for 15 years that so many remain so negative about this season. I have genuinely enjoyed this season more than any in over a decade, yes we won the Conference, but by Christ was some of the footy ugly. This season, full of ups and downs, has seen us challenge from the outset and spend a very large part of the season in the top 3. At our best we play fast, attacking football and overall the standard is the highest it has been since Dearden's 01/02 side and Curle's inherited side of 04, which blew promotion when they really should have gone up automatically. I feel for those who have been unable to enjoy this season, for they are probably in for a lifetime of misery supporting the Stags!
It's not really about being negative though Rob.
The thread started with a provocative question to those who have been deemed to not support the manager, when on every thread the vast majority have been behind the team and DF.
Singling people out to be questioned was never going to end well for the OP.
As I have said before, speaking for myself I have supported DF for a good while and not given the bloke grief.
Many on that list have been everywhere this season supporting the team and, just because they had at some point, a different opinion they get their names published like a rogues gallery.
I've not kept a list, but I do think you have to live by what you put on social media, a painful lesson many racists are now learning. Clearly same applies here but obviously far, far more trivial, you slag off a manager who wins your team a promotion to League 1 for the first time in over 15 years then you absolutely deserve ridicule - and ridicule these short termists will get if we succeed on Saturday. They'd have followed the County line, sacked DF in Sep, sacked his successor in Nov and ended up relegated to the Conference in May, all this with a top 3 budget - unbelievable eh? David Vaughan is on 7k a week, I'll leave it at that, for now.
No matter what happens on Saturday, our manager has done a great job this season, we have some superb players who have been an absolute credit to our club and off field we are just in a different planet to where we were 10 years ago. It's a great time to be a Stags fan, someone ought to tell some on here!
Not only is he on £7k a week, but he was seen at Field Mill several days before he signed for County. The fact that Flitcroft decided not to sign him and brought in Bishop instead should be enough to end any discussion on whether he is a good manager or not.

old ram stag wrote:from number 5 on the list, I have never been convinced by flitcroft, and he has done nothing with a very good budget to change my mind, I also think he is a negative manager who has cost us points in games we have the opponents beat. But come sat I will give them my full support and we can all do a full analysis of the season come Sunday (hopefully) or June if not.

If he has proved he can do the job and in addition also proved he knows what it takes to get a team promoted from this league why don't you fancy us in the play-offs? To date at Mansfield Town he's proved nothing.

Could you please state how the league table is constructed ie points per whinge, use of key phrases etc? For Old Ram Stag and Forest Town Stag were in a ‘heated debate’ yesterday as to why one was fifth and one was sixth.
Thanks in advance for your help.

This is great. I've never been on a list before, and even better I'm sitting in an automatic promotion spot, something Flitcroft has royally ballsed up. Maybe if I select McDonald at right back for the next game, I can get a points deduction for being a total tool.
Geoff obviously has a massive amount of time on his hands...a fate likely to befall our actual manager soon if he doesn't get his act together.
Like Spartacus, I'd like more info on how its compiled...maybe next year we can have a running one over the season. Did we get extra points for waiting to be a doubter after over 60 league games, or is that too early?? Does failing to get 1 point form the 9 available in the last 3 games gain any bonus points?
Cheers Geoff, you win post of the season from me, no doubt about that.
