At 3 o,clock a surprisingly healthy gate of 3250 were inside Edgeley Park. By 4.15 pm there were only half left. Droves of County fans either heading for the pubs of Castle Street or heading home for an early tea.
I try where I can to be positive. (Part time) Braintree with games in hand should finish above half way. They are not a bad team and they are on a good run (four straight wins). County, let's be honest, are a poor side and have been throughout the season. I had predicted a draw but nobody should be too shocked at this defeat as they read their Sunday paper.
So why the exodus after the third goal? Well, the performance was poor and as some had voiced, debuting four new players was as likely set us back as drive us forward. But it is more than that. After these recent years of setback, humiliation and dross it feels to me that better fans than I have finally had enough. Called it a day. Turned their back on the club.
There are those who say the manager isn't picking the side but it is this years owner (Mr Fearn) who decides. There are those who say there is no real interest in the footballing side (apart from balancing the books) and the name of the game is the 'property deal'. There are those that say they no longer feel connected to the club, that it is no longer their club.
Wikipedia's definition of 'The Straw That broke the camel's back' is 'when something is deemed to be the last in a line of unacceptable occurrences'. Could that have been the penalty on 60 mins for their third? Raised voices in the Main Stand at full time directed at those currently in control ( I bet the Pop Side is opened up in double quick time!).
So, looking forward - County (three points above the drop zone if you are brave enough to look) are at Luton this Tuesday. Then host high flying Newport on Saturday and a week later travel to Macc and two days after are at home to promotion hopefuls Grimsby. I can see two points at best from that lot. Bottom four calling?
