    It might well take a few months before we see a sign of a cohesive team. Wouldn't be surprised to see us get turned over a few times before we get to see the best of this side. Gonna have to be patient.

    A few months?. That's nonsense. We might as well give up on this season then.

    We got our squad In place early pre-season to give us a better time to gel.

    By the time the window closes end of this month, we should be in a position to know our best team and formation and clicked into place

    I'm not saying we won't see a decent performance in that time but from what I saw on Saturday it will take time for players to build relationships where they know what each other does well. Just look at how poor Bristol Rovers looked at VP early season then by the end of the season they were flying. Apparently we've had a bigger turnover of players than anyone else and with this comes time to get the team to gel.

    I know that this means absolutely nothing, but according to my lad - Dion posted a couple of pictures of him out with Lee Angol & Abo Eisa (out for LA's birthday) on Instagram.

    Could have just remained good friends but also good that he seems to like being around a couple of our players.

    Not giving up hope yet!

    The season wouldn’t be over, I agree with Rog lots of new signings can take time to click it doesn’t mean they will but it’s the safe bet without hindsight. Going back to why the season wouldn’t be over, 98/99 been one example and another in 15/16 when we reached the playoffs after 10 points from 10 games. First few months we looked poor in both until performances clicked into gear and results followed.

    I get what you and Roger are saying. It still amazes me though how it should take as long as Roger suggested to gel though.

    Most clubs at our level have a big turnaround of players each summer, like ourselves on Saturday, Donny had 8 players making their debut too. Our opponents tomorrow similar, as well as new manager.

    We got off to a flyer last season with no gelling issues, it was the injuries at the end of August that halted the good start, and we ended up with last minute bottom of the barrel signings to replace them.

    Yes we got off to a flyer and then the wheels fell off. I for one would be ok with watching us gel and take the division by a storm. It’s a marathon etc. as long as we’re in the top 3 I don’t care how we get there.

    Perhaps we can judge where we are at by the beginning of October? Harrogate Town Away October 1st will be an interesting one. Will we be a cohesive team flying by then, or will we get yet another spanking extending our embarrassment into a third season?

    Why is it embarrassing (not that I want us to lose to Harrogate), but we're both league two teams, embarrassing is the likes of Bradford City going to Stamford Bridge and giving Chelsea a spanking on their own ground.

    Losing to Harrogate in October would be rather disappointing to say the least given our transfer activity and expectations, it will be a measure of where we are.

    Pleased for Harrogate to make it out of the NL and to stay up, but quite sure six losses to them on the trot will redden most City faces.

    It's fine to admit you made it up. You're well known for it so just own your posts.

    Let's hope Angol stays injury free, we've already got two out long term and we've only played one game...

    The last thing we need is to become victim to a sob story with multiple key figures out - how long it takes them to 'gel' won't matter...

    They're sponsored by Wagmi United if that factors into anyone's conspiracy theories...
