This league is terrible and we have the strongest squad in it. If you thought we'd finish 12th that just shows your expectations were unrealistic.

No idea how you've enjoyed this season. The football on offer is pretty poor for the most part. The league position is fine at the moment but we aren't playing well in a division we should be too good for and that's a worry.

In that we have the best squad in the division with lots of depth compared to our rivals. We also have a manager who had essentially 9 months last season with no real expectations in which to start getting us ready for this season.

I think that that is about right.

We are in the promotion places at the moment but with what we have got we SHOULD be in the promotion places.

If we are not back in the second division next season then this season has been a failure.

We are certainly not scoring enough goals at the moment or creating enough chances.

Because we have better players than all or nearly all of the division.

and as PL seems to think, the best supporters.

Very true. The way we are currently playing and the lack of chances we are creating is a concern. For a team that has been top 2 for most of the season, we certainly don't play or look like one. We've had glimpses where there have been encouraging signs, but for the supposed 'quality' of our squad I have been disappointed with our displays on the whole. Also, other teams in and around us seem to be getting their acts together and are looking a real threat.

I think we'll be alright - and being out of the FA Cup will help ease the burden - but that said, if we have a bad xmas period we'll be slap bang in the play-off pack. The likes of Oxford, Rotherham, and even Pompey all look dangerous.

My concern lies more with the fact that we still, under Lambert, have no real sense of how we are playing.

Just one example, with an absolute wealth of midfield quality available - we seem to still insist on being very direct, even when we play Jackson up top on his own.

As under Hurst, we play only in patches - under Lambert that patches are longer but we still have real trouble seeing off teams or seeing out a game - those are genuine concerns.

That said, we are in a very good league position despite not really playing well. That's def a positive but we are now really struggling to find any form. Not panicking, long way to go etc.

The reality is that the actual quality of football is, whilst better than Hurst, at best is on par with Mick but at a lower level - I am really struggling with that.

We can and do play some decent football but it is always in shortish patches.

The quality of player in this division is poor, there is no two ways about that.

But they are incredibly organised and sit off us right from the first whistle, time-waste and cheat; it has ultimately made it quite a difficult league to play in.

I went and saw Cambridge play Plymouth last week and Cambridge played excellent football. Calm on the ball, direct but varied and mostly on the floor.

We should be 10 points clear. This league is pretty weak and our squad is pretty strong and deep. Don't go up and their should be some massive questions over management.

I know that was then, but it could be again..

That's not fact though is it?

Also, depth doesn't mean quality. A lot of our players look great on paper but in reality are overrated. Depth is more likely to mean consistent results, which we've had.

Norwood - 30+ goals in League 2, but never played more than a few games at this level. Not a given he will be one of the best strikers in the league.
Jackson - good at League 2 level, struggled hugely in the Championship.
Huws - nowhere near what he used to be.
Keane - getting there but in a similar place to Huws, as we know, and he's only just come back into the picture.

Players like Judge, Chambers and Skuse I think do back your argument that we should be better than most, but it doesn't apply to the whole squad. Judge in particular has not delivered as we expected, which is disappointing, but you know that. Chambers and Skuse have delivered, as proved by our defensive record.

Quite a bit of our depth is still injured, and it also happens that they are some of our better players. Lankester, Bishop and Sears all still to return.

I don't want to give Lambert a free pass, because I would have expected better performances and style of play, I just think individually we are not as good as some think we should be.

Who in the league is better then? We have five or six CMs that would walk into any side in the league. Nolan was one of the players of the year at this level just a couple of years ago, as was Nsiala. Edwards, who isn't one of our stronger players, was also a standout performer in League 1 very recently. For this level we have both quality and depth that other sides can't match.

Not sure using Nsiala as an example of our squad's depth and quality is a good one to justify your side of the argument?!

Agree other teams are starting to get their act together now, Lambo talks about only losing two games I get that but you only need a run of draws and before no time you're looking over your shoulder pretty quickly, I know he's staying positive but we need a big confidence boost right now against an inform side more than anything, we're certainly due a performance at home that's for sure...

I sort of agree here.
I think we should be pleased with where we are for now.
The football in this league is by and large turgid wherever you go. The key is to defend well (which we have done) and have that bit of quality to turn a game (which I think we have).

I would expect the league to open out from Feb onwards once setting up for draws dont wash and only 3 points will do for both teams competing.

I think it has been a very 'bitty' season too which hasn't helped matters. It feels like we've played more meaningless cup games than actual competitive league games, particularly over the past couple of months. I am looking forward to league games coming thick and fast.

We miss KVY. When he was in the side we weren't playing tika taka football but we looked markedly better for me. Lambert needs to get a consistent side out for a run of games and we need to revert back to Norwood and Jackson up top.

I mean, you do know you can go on days out and family friends without the football? I must have missed the scoring goals part of our season. We're averaging a goal a game over the past couple of months. You'd be slating Mick if we'd been playing like this under him, especially in League 1 ffs.
