Lets not beat about the bush - its promotion or bust this year.
Give Rosler/ Warburton until Christmas or f*** them off.
No more seasons of under achieving and people making excuses...
Well for me - a budget of £3.5m is well enough to get us up if used correctly.
The target from M Benham was top six - so why are people lowering the bar and comfortable as usual.
I want success - fed up with excuses.
Anyway, with a home game with Yeovil and again versus Crewe on Saturday - we should be up there by 5pm Sat...

The last time we played at bury on the opening day of the season we lost and ended up as champions and getting promoted. So alls not lost so stop moaning. You will all be surprised when you find out who this mystery striker is.
But from reading reports by those who were, I can't help wondering whether it wasn't more a case of pragmatism on Uwe's part?
That is, he might have picked an attacking formation, which had a lot of possession and created chances etc, but because it was away, it was the 1st team of the season (i.e. ring-rusty) and we only had one fit striker, we might have struggled to score anyhow. Which would leave us open to a sucker punch from Bury and a horrible 1-0 defeat?
Whereas by keeping it tight, he could hope at least to secure a point, which sets the team up for two winnable home games and (we hope) the introduction of a new striker?
I mean, if he's still adopting such tactics running into October and November etc, then I'm sure questions will be asked.
But one game into the season?
That's the short term view we have had since Allen left.
We have to trust that Benham has the right man this time.
We have been improving slowly season, over season since Benham came to the fore.
We are getting there !
CEO of Beesotted FC
Between 2000 (Noades stepping down) and 2011 (UR taking over), BFC have had 8 Permanent and 3 Caretaker managers. Only two (Coppell and Allen) left of their own accord, with only one going on to bigger and better things.
If that tells us anything, it is that short-termism does not work.
Now I don't know whether UR is the right man to bring MB's plans to fruition, but I do know two things.
One, MB's plans are most definitely medium-to-long term and two, that unless things are going obviously and drastically wrong with UR (which they aren't), then it would be sheer madness to panic after a season and a half and take a chance on a NINTH new manager in little over a decade.
P.S. I've noted this on here before, but it is worth repeating that Alex Ferguson had SIX full seasons at Old Trafford before he won his first EPL title. There were fans at OT yelling for his head long before then.
Didnt go Saturday so cant really comment however having read most peoples comments about Bury being a poor side had to laugh when reading the following report

No panic from me but I do expect promotion this year, especially on a big budget, especially as it's possibly the weakest division for years, and especially as we have a bigger squad behind the scenes than we have on the pitch - It's time to grow some bollocks - no excuses any more - no acceptance of bad luck or 'we nearly did it'....
If UR/MW are good enough for Mr Benham, then they are good enuff for me.
zzzzzzzzz'' brentford champions'' zzzzzzzzzzzz
Vote BLUNSTONE - maybe out of touch but closer than what we already have.
