Rather than repeat the same points all day. I'm still not sure that we are quite where we were when Jewell left although the lack of belief at times is similar. That really shouldn't be the benchmark though.

This might be as good as my day gets, I'm off to hospital now to have an operation on my ankle. Should be about as much fun as last night's match.

Monday morning's are certainly better after a win. I do hope that the air has been cleared a bit between players and fans, it certainly felt like a bit of unity had returned on Saturday - especially in the last 20 minutes when the support was excellent and helped lift the team.
That doesn't change everything of course and this season has been disappointing far too often. But, if we can build on that with a good win against Lincoln tomorrow then maybe we can enjoy the rest of the season and reassess everything at the end of it. That will still probably be the best time for a change of manager but far less messy than having to do so this week.
As for Lincoln, we are all well aware of the likelihood of an upset but, equally, the pressure is ramped up on them a bit with that expectation and the tv cameras. If we can start the game on the front-foot then we should be ok.
Hopefully the discussion, repetitive as it may be at times, since QPR had brought things to a head and cleared the air a bit. This season had been frustrating but because we are inconsistent, not because we are utterly dreadful (will not every match anyway).
I do hope everyone gets behind the team today and that they respond to that. If nothing else, it'll be the best way to keep warm!

One with an agreement for a permanent deal in the Summer as with McGoldrick perhaps but otherwise I can't really see it. The sunk cost of playing someone else's player for three months is quite a waste.
Agyei just doesn't seem very likely, except a 'Will this do?' effort if we can't sign anyone else.
I don't have any real problems about not getting into a bidding war for Ward but this starts to look like ME keeping funds tight in case McCarthy isn't here soon. In doing so it becomes self-fulfilling doesn't it?
