In league table order after 8 games

Dagenham- Top but hardly world beaters.
Orient-After early setbacks seem to have got to grips with this division.
Wrexham-Three wins on the bounce puts them in a high position.
Sutton-Early success has faltered 3G pitch still an advantage though(pitch is horrible)
Aldershot - Stuttering now after a bright start.
Dover-Well drilled side difficult to beat.
Maidenhead-Lost their main man Tarpey, hard to tell how it will effect them(still won without him last match)
Halifax-10 pts out of last 12 pts in good form at the moment.
Woking-One favourites for the drop doing O.K.
Boreham Wood-Punching well above their weight -barely any fans and hated by everyone
Gateshead-Mid table ordinary-Aspin complaining about poor fan base.
Eastleigh-Another club no one likes-Artificial gates with free entry now and then.
Bromley-Now with 3G pitch advantage.
Macclesfield-Good manager does well with supposedly limited budget.
Ebbsfleet-Unbeaten draw specialists with 7 draws
Barrow-Still manager less - lost their main men from last season.
AFC Fylde - Good strike force-but having seen them they need more bigger/stronger defenders which is what you need to survive in this league.
Tranmere-Red hot favourites Mellon must be on the next list for the chop unless results improve.
Maidstone-3G pitch advantage
Hartlepool - Poor start won last two though
Chester-No manager. Just my opinion but I think they need to ditch fan ownership.
Solihull-Will struggle to stay up.
Guiseley-Cox takes over, depends on his recruitment whether they can avoid going down.
Torquay-An utter basket case. With new owners having a past history of taking over clubs and then selling their ground, the future is bleak for the Gulls.

We havent had a proper manager for a long time, our season won't start until we get one.

Its only September but I'm gravely worried.

Very good summary massie. I didn't think much of Dagenham when we played them but every team can have an off day. Couldn't agree more regarding us. We're a tidy little passing team but we lack leadership. To many softies in our team. Some of the goals we've conceded (after leading in practically every game) beggars belief. We're full time, challinor was a defender and has all week to practise defending and we're useless at it. It like to see us go after Mellon if he gets the chop but don't think it will happen as our chairman seems to love chally
