Thank you for your time, enthusiasm and commitment to the social media team.

Prior to Saturday it was an account that was beginning to attract the attention of several large brands willing to become involved in the club - down to your hard work.

The red Monday campaign, free shirt Friday's, the FA cup to miss lane, FA cup team of the round, the Valentines she's a keeper, and introduction of Instagram were all possible because of you running the day to day so well.

Asking you to work on the account today was a decision that proved to be one the better decisions made this seasonx

You wouldn't have approached the club to run the account, and I hope the club learn if they reach out to people, with the skills required, and ask them to join, they more than likely will. (Or would prior to this weekend.)

And where did Nigel Clough cut his teeth - Burton Albion - Matt and Robbie deserve a proper chance, especially in light of recent improvements.

Sorry Steve but that's a risible comparison. Clough had a very successful playing career, won full england caps, and plenty of praise for how he handled the burden of who is father was and also his style of play.  He also had experience of non-league football in his early days. I daresay he could have got a bigger first job than Burton if he had wanted it.

If Doughty and Lawton had never played for us they, in my opinion, would not have got the management role here. If they turn it round and make a success then fair enough, but they are not in Nigel Clough's league.

Didn't he become a player coach to begin with

I'd like to know what our current management trio - all involved in the time period as players/managers - think of not earning our place as footballs top table.

And still we here nothing from Bill Waterson?

An explanation for this fiasco would be good
The whole fiasco or just the social media ? 😂

There is a valid reason why Bill has yet to comment on yesterday or the programme article or the forum.

I have spoken to Bill this morning and I'm sure when he gets the opportunity, he will take the opportunity to make a statement on the issues.

Who is doing the twitter updates now

Andrew Flynn has been re-assigned the new password.

Not sure whether Jacque has.

I have not.

As far as I'm aware, he or his team have been involved in the analysis of the following games:

Boston
Telford
Worcester
Stalybridge

7 points, 3 clean sheets - and arguably should have been a draw/clean sheet at Telford.

Long may Rob be involved.

Not sure, send me your email address and I will send it to you.

Would also Welcome a read

Based on last 6 matches, we would be mid table. So there is improvement. Far from perfect but it is improving.

It's certainly worth noting. But unfortunately we've played poor sides, and giving Matt the job full time is one risk too far.

Any chance the actual lads who normally run the twitter can come on and let us know exactly what happened?

I'd also suggest a club official give their side if they can.

Another sad day for all of us.

There is supposed to be a new chain of command from communication with Bill Waterson.

The walkout was discussed by myself and Bill and I can't repeat what was said but he was made aware that many people including the club mascot and some of the social media team would do so.

Midway through our coverage we were locked out.



I believe that Bill Waterson was unable to attend the Stalybridge match and I would be hugely surprised if he was the mastermind behind this peevish act.




He wasn't cult. My point being Bill heads up communication, and a decision clearly made without his say

Another clean sheet.

I don't think Matt is correct for the job (lack of managerial experience( but we've kept a fair few clean sheets recently under him

Jack Jolly had a conversation with Bill Waterman prior to today which involved the topic of today's planned walkout by fans. 

-----  Yes, Bill phoned me on his commute home. We spoke for 2 hours on the walkout, the future of the club, potential new strategies, and the communication structure of the club  -----

The details of the conversation can't be shared by Jack, understandably, however he did let Bill know members of the social media team and club mascot had intended to take part.

----- The opening discussions were deemed 'off the record' and towards the end got more general - however, not knowing where the line was drawn in being off the record, I'd rather not put things out in the public domain. But yes, mascot, social media team were considering and likely to take part. After that conversation that was the most positive I've been about the club in a while and I was convinced we might actually make progress going forward.

Nothing was said after that conversation on this topic between club and social media team.

---- I havent heard from Bill since that phone call, or Grahame - bar one email discussing an email newsletter template design system ------

During the game today, and I followed this almost by the minute, the social media team made reference to the protest 20 minutes into the game stating that the clubs official updates included reference to a protest. There then followed a couple of tweets responding to Ben Collins (journalist) and his blog after direct questions about the protest ('were there not many?' and 'does it mean they won't come back in?'). The tweets were straight forward objective responses, which as I type are still there.

----- Nothing was deleted. We responded once to that Ben Collins, as far as I am aware, unless anyone else went back to him ------

When you say "midway through our coverage", were you tweeting about the walkout at the time?

56 minutes in. Three tweets, one mentioning people leaving, one clarifying (via John Laidlars updates) it was in protest, one letting people know numbers after a direct ask.

Facebook has been updated

Because they haven't bothered to remove access. Yet.

Apologises for anybody following the social media of the club. We've been locked out.
