Who are you to tell people they are deluded?
There's a good chance that Paul Crarey wouldn't have signed most of this years squad so how can you say things wouldn't have been any different?
Goulding has been here long enough now to make a difference and has brought in a few of his own players, yet nothing has changed, so yes he can be judged on results.
The last 2 home games attendances have shown what people think of the current situation.
How on earth can you say the results would of been different for Cresta compared to Goulding because he wouldn't of signed the majority of this season's squad? Goulding didn't sign the majority of it either!
Do you know how hard it is to sign quality players mid season? It is literally impossible. All the quality is signed up on contracts. To sign good players you need to open talks a couple of weeks after the season ends and get it done - something we have failed to do. He has brought players in but we are 7 or 8 quality championship players off being a 9th place side.
Crowds are down because we are losing. It's all the people of Barrow care about. We were winning in 2009 despite the club being horribly run and we got 3000 crowds towards the end of the season. Apart from the loyal fans, people only really show up when we are winning. Barrow AFC were getting 500 crowds on Tuesdays last year, last night they got 1400. Wonder why? The expectancy of a victory prior to the game determines the crowd in Barrow.
