Sounds like a positive reaction from today, despite defeat. I thought the same at guiesley. The fact is a good performance every half dozen games constitutes nothing and further highlights how shit we are. Mathematical it's not too late, but it's going to have to be a miracle of the greatest magnitude to sort this mess out. This is a joke, our last win in the league was April, now that is depressing.
This is similar to the sentiment I felt leaving the game yesterday. Based on what I saw, I could have quite easily proclaimed that we will never get relegated playing like that and we will be fine. But then you look at the league table and realise how much ground we have to make up and I'm not so sure. Good performances are promising, but we need to turn it into cold, hard results asap.
Somebody posted a great stat when GO took over, states that from the day he took over, in order to get to the magical 50 point mark we would need 1.33 points per game - solid midtable form rather than promotion form. So far, under GO we are 3 games in and have 1 point on the board - we're 3 points behind schedule. So we now need 2 wins and a draw from the next 3 to keep on track.
Saying that, if we can dig out yesterday's performance levels with a little more polishing we will start winning games soon. I'm not going to proclaim we will smash Maidenhead - they are clearly a good side and playing well. But so we're Dagenham, and we've just given them one hell of a workout on their own patch so it's not beyond the realms of reality that a win is just around the corner
