So 3 more points, this time against the away draw specialists of the league...

6th place eh...;)

Losses so far against the top two, a mid table team and the only real blight Blackpool...

So we are playing the shitest football;) ever and still sat in a play off place..:D

Good enough for me...

Keep up the sack Todd fellas... Someone somewhere will listen....

My point all along Jimbo is that we are racking up the points whilst playing badly at times...

We get results... Thats the sign of a good team...The same manager picks the team when they are class on the pitch. A team can only look good against a team that allows them to...

If teams consistently shut up shop and get men behind the ball its nearly impossible to look good..

As long as the points keep racking up and we are in the mix thats fine with me...

We are in the best form weve been in for along time... Where we would lose before in games we come away with points....6 wins 5 draws only 4 losses so far is a decent record Jimmy for such a shite team..

No other manager will get more from this team...Especially none of the joke nominations that are touted on here anyway...

Meaning ???


Sorry but things have got to change or I dont even want to think about what cud happen !!
You mean they could play shite all season and still be in the play offs????

Or they could start playing just a bit better and cruise to third place..

Or they could play to their strengths week in week out and go for automatic slots..

15 games of doom and gloomers on here hasnt halted their points tally...

Points mean prizes .....

It doesn't matter how good you are, if a team comes and plays 4-5-1 or 5-4-1 you're knackered. See Man Utd Vs Lille as an example, Man Utd have got bloody fantastic players but get 10 hardworking players playing against you and how good you are is irrelevant. We got the win today against an appaling 'HOOF' side and thats good enough for me.

So you'd rather be entertained by 3-2 and 4-3 defeats and be relegated than be promoted with dour 1-0 victories and hard earned points?? Weird!

On a positive note instead of the usual doom and gloom shite...

- we came away with all 3 points, dont matter how we did it but we did.
- another clean sheet ( now 2 in a row since the return of big Don )
- up to 6th place in the table, yes, thats 6th place ( playoff position ) even tho we havnt been playing anywhere near as we can we're still pickin up the points.

No I mean they cud keep playin shite but not be as lucky and start dropping down the league !

I hope we do play better and cruise to 2nd place not 3rd

Whatever you say I have never ever been doom and gloom about the team and yes points do mean prizes but what we saw today was shockin and it could have been them sneakin the 3 points ! thats all !

'So you'd rather be entertained by 3-2 and 4-3 defeats and be relegated than be promoted with dour 1-0 victories and hard earned points?? Weird!'

Chuckle, but think of the children! Yes, of course I'd rather see dour 1-0 victories than entertaining 4-3 defeats. BUT, what's the point of going up if we are relegation certs? The prospect of watching us losing every other week and getting relegated doesn't bear thinking about.

I've not slated Todd or the players this season simply because I don't think we can do much better with the players at our disposal. The thing is though, we are managing to win games and get results even when we are garbage, and the feeling on the terraces is still one of despair. Why? because the entertainment value is zero and we keep getting lucky, and what makes it worse is that apart from the return of MBW there doesn't appear to be any light at the end of the tunnel. I mean how bad will it be and what will the backlash be like playing the same way and losing every week at a higher level?

I'll admit I don't have any answers, imho sacking Todd wont achieve much, but to expect the paying punters who were there today to be happy with their lot simply isn't fair. Honestly, dire doesn't do it justice.
