Radio Suffolk reckoned we should be looking at him in the summer, what were people's thoughts of him the other night. any good?

Like a younger version of Skuse I guess?

So who is positive about next season?
at 18:21 10 Apr 2016

It really depends how much MM is backed and whether MM is our manager I suppose

We can start planning for next season now

Personally I'd like to see more athleticism in our side, back to front

We certainly need a quality central midfielder coming in, possibly another big strong striker to compete with Murphy

And a winger

In terms of the defence I wonder if any of Kenlock, Clarke, Yorwerth, Polish Pete or Emmanuel can step up?

Positives from yesterday?
at 12:12 10 Apr 2016

Knudsen, showed a lot more when the chips were down
Sears actually played through the middle
And McGoldrick showing how important he is to our game, we really need him fit next season

Side note: Brentford fans singing you're getting sacked in the morning? Do they realise we back our managers :p

Also when the 18k crowd was announced, you only came to see Brentford

Erm... not really, that's a lower crowd than Charlton and Rotherham, if anything they're avoiding Brentford :p

Freak result - Awful Brentford side!
at 17:40 9 Apr 2016

they must be laughing all the way home

Our side from last year would have blown this Brentford side out of the water, defensively shambolic. I've never seen a team play such an open game against 10 men. We could and should have got another goal but it was one of those days where everything went their way besides that awful injury :p

The referee may as well have sent Hyam off for that foul, I think once he knew the severity of the injury, he was always going to look for a red when Hyam committed another foul. I couldn't see the second foul from where I was but there seemed to be little in it?

Either way, the red card along with the foul leading up to their first goal aided and abetted the result.

I think if we had got to half time with 11 men, we'd have won that game.

It was just one of those games you get at the end of the season. I wouldn't read too much into it.

Since our relegation
at 08:19 6 Apr 2016

Burnley, Blackpool, Stoke, Wigan, Hull, Swansea, Norwich, Portsmouth and Watford have made it to the Premier league, some have stayed there for a good length!

All who are historically weaker clubs than ourselves, some who must have been miles behind us in terms infrastructure prior to Premiership income and parachute payments

Every season we're not there is another season clubs like this get ahead of us

I just wonder if we've missed the boat, it's certainly getting harder and harder to compete

The only positive to take out of the last 15 years is we've only really had one genuine relegation fight and that was snuffed out by MM. It's testament to the club that we've managed not to plummet to embarrassing lengths.

This still remains our most average era for 50 odd years, when was the last time we were in the third tier?

I'm getting bored of this league frankly, I just hope Evans and MM get there heads down and get us competitive next season, it's been a particularly disappointing one. It reminds of the season under Magilton where we stagnated and ended up replacing him with the dark lord

Injured or just well out of favour now?

I know he's gone off the boil but his pace and work rate would add something off the bench maybe?

A very disappointing season overall but it's not the end of the world, we at least have a solid platform to build from.

The best squad we've had for many a year
at 17:09 5 Apr 2016

that's the line we've been told again and again this season.

Whilst we have gone backwards to some extent, you can't but help wonder how it may have been if Fraser, McGoldrick and Bishop had been fit for the majority of the season.

MM has been unlucky with injuries this season imho, his biggest mistake was his stubbornness in January to do something about it.

Both Pringle and Feeney are decent additions and I'd love to see us sign them in the summer but they came in far too late. In MM's defence I suspect by waiting we may end up signing them on better deals to what we may have had to do in January.

Whilst I'm not writing off this season yet, I don't have much hope in us raiding the play-offs unless Feeney and Pringle really settle in and McG and Bishop recover miraculously in time to turn our season around. I can't see it happening but we live in hope!

Again I think next season with the addition of Pringle and Feeney and a few youngsters stepping up could see us finishing in the play-offs again.

It may seem like doom and gloom currently but we're in no worse a position than we were at the end of last season, it would just be nice to have some excitement come the end of it.

McCarthy being coy about his future
at 22:05 4 Apr 2016

let's be honest, when McCarthy says something, he says it for a reason. He may seem like a straight talking Yorkshireman but there is often more to his statements than people wish to think.

Could his recent statements about Villa be actually to force Evans hand and give him more money in the summer?

If Evans fears McCarthy is going to be approached by bigger clubs in better positions, will we have to show more ambition to keep him and thus actually offer a competitive transfer budget?

People can say what they like about McCarthy, his track record is decent. On paper there is no one more experienced at this level, back him and the smart money says he'll succeed.

That was very much back to the underperforming side of the last decade or so. Thankfully much of the stars of Saturday weren't involved.
