    So we've wrote this season off?

    If I'm feeling positive anything it's that we won't get relagated or finish in the top six. For the first season in ages I cannot get the least bit excited. Even my customary blue tinted early season optimism is nowhere to be seen. As a serial optimist this is troubling.

    New Kit

    Reaching for the Andrex ? Does that make it really bad or is it just that good ?

    Goodbye, my friend

    Indeed it does, they also have to play two of the 3 teams below them. #timeforagameofleapfrog #iwouldpissmyselflaughing

    Five wins in seven games

    I agree, although it would be the same for any manager, I think Jos has the tools to deal with it either way. We are in a tough spot financially and may have to accept trading our way out of it even if it means waiting a bit longer for promotion. I hope it doesn't come to that but being realistic...

    I think what he's done since arriving is well above my expectations. Squad was down to the bare bones and morale seriously low. Interesting summer ahead as he takes care of housekeeping and strengthening the squad. Wouldn't be a shock if he gets us promoted within 2 seasons. This fella knows what he's doing.

    At last - Thank you Jos!!!

    None of us know how it will work out but what gives me hope is what he has achieved with extremely poor resources and morale at a serious low. Let's see what he does in the summer !
  7. And the manager is responsible for at least 50% of that.

    Agree. Think Westwood is the least needed of those, we have 2 very useful alternative keepers imho

    That's the spirit. We need a character like you in the dressing room.

    I've said from the start that Jos has tried and tested promotion methods. I care not that they are in a different country, nor that his appointment looks left field, or that he doesn't jump up and down on the touchline. Jos knows football, he will prepare thoroughly and I expect us to hit the ground running next season.
  11. Great word, had to google that one. Every day's a school day.

    Wednesday lose to a quality Fulham

    Can't win em all. We've fared pretty well against top sides this year despite the difficulties. Going down 0-1 to a n auto promotion chasing side is no disgrace. Yes we could have got something out of the game, but by the same token if Leeds or Preston had taken their early chances we would not have won those games. Learn from games like this, work hard, keep improving.

    hirst to united

    Wouldn't begrudge the lad a move like that although I can only see him getting loaned out for a few years. At least it's a major club, Leicester would have been cutting his nose off to spite his face. Whole thing has been a bun fight just hope we get reasonable compensation for him.

    Agents fees in the Championship.

    I'm not saying we have done this, but the club could dress up payments to Doyen as something other than agents fees making them appear more respectable / acceptable.
