  1. Very disappointing, I expect a lot of improvement. We cannot afford a poor start. It's all about a reaction now
  2. I agree it's all about the league and what happens from now. Can't get over excited at friendlies , the league is what matters, I feel promotion is a must this season, or we could be down here for a long time
  3. Football couldn't be further from my mind at the moment. In the end money talks
  4. Current badge is the best we have had imo
  5. I played Central midfield for Hull boys, which is where I was from originally, then Doncaster boys after we had moved and went on to play for South Yorkshire boys. Was on trial at Sheffield United when I had an accident at 17 which finished any playing career I may have had. This was all a long time ago when football was played for enjoyment, not for money. Today's game is not the same in my opinion, too many playing for biggest wage they can get, which club doesn't matter.
  6. Florida. Was going in April, looking increasingly unlikely.
  7. Think it's a case of wait and see, but to be honest it looks like there ain't going to be any football any time soon. A few clubs likely to be in desperate trouble with no gate receipts. I just hope for a common sense approach, but not really expecting one. What that approach would be, I honestly don't know, but the ruling body need to protect all clubs, not just the top few. Not be holding my breath though.
  8. Another tick in the box, no one can complain at the moment, we are winning, not perfect by any means, but winning. The good thing is there is room for improvement, we have the makings of a very good side.
  9. Very good 3 points, of course they all are but it was important to back up the Barrow result and not waste it by losing the next game. Building pressure at the top at the right time, hope it continues.
  10. Consistency is the key from now till the end of the season, something we have been lacking imo. I still think he maybe had enough time to keep us up last year, but the rot in the squad had probably already set in. I said at the start of this season it would be difficult, and it is. I will judge him on the whole season and what we achieve, which could still end up with promotion and a trophy, or just further disappointment.
  11. Think that's a bit unfair to be honest, he is managing the squad, making changes, that's his job. Everyone, including me, is quick to jump on him when we are not winning, I think it's only fair we give him some credit when he changes things and they work. Yes a lot of it is down to the players on the pitch, but they are taking instructions from the manager, all teams do. Credit where it is due. Just my opinion.
  12. The chances of catching them are slim to none. We need to win to keep play off hopes alive, though this game alone won't determine that
  13. Any win is a good win, but a big win is extra nice
  14. As I can't make it to games anymore I couldn't imagine not listening to the games, its something to look forward to, yes even when we are down. It's just Notts County... My Team.
  15. Yes agreed, I just think with the up an down way we are at the moment, they are a long way off, but as you say, not out of the question
  16. Playoffs look a long way off, but I always thought this would be a difficult season. The longer we are in it, the harder it will be to get out, we are seen as a scalp.
  17. Let's give the kid a chance, if he helps great.
  18. I have some sympathy with keepers. When forwards miss sitters its"at least he's getting into good positions", if a midfield man passes astray or the ball goes under his foot, he has the chance to get it back. If a defender misses a tackle or is outdone by an attacker, he can foul him and he's done well, all these situations and more are quickly forgotten. But when a keeper makes a mistake there is no second chance or anyone backing him up, it's generally a goal, and he's the biggest tw@t ever. Very lonely job.
  19. We are on the right track definitely, I think personally we will have to spend another year or so in this league, but at least there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel
  20. It was never going to be a fast start after all the upheaval of the closed season, I don't think it has been too bad a start, starting to adjust a bit. Will obviously need to improve, but that comes with confidence and playing together. Can we go straight back up?.. Heart says yes, head says we will need at least a couple of seasons to build. I would dearly love it to be proven wrong, but I think we will probably just miss out on the play offs.
