McKenna: Tuanzebe Has Made Good Progress
at 16:21:42

V honest player, great defensively, but limited going forward compared with (e.g.) Clark. So when things not going his way at the back, he can look poor, and has done a couple of times of late and had to be subbed. Hopefully he feels part of the squad, as should we get promoted, I could imagine McKenna exploring playing with 3 at the back and have to think that would suit Axel much better (on the Right of a 3) than full back where he is often exposed.

McKenna: We're Pretty Stretched
at 15:45:02

There was word around the Club, which I heard on Friday, that illness was still kicking around and that there would be late fitness tests (plural). Believe that was true, but I simply love the fact that McKenna NEVER uses excuses like that post match (even against the Sc*m) and treats these things as normal issues for a football team to overcome. I know it was #### result and performance, but you just know that there will be a response tomorrow. What a team, manager and Club we have right now. COYB

Wagner: My Players Wanted it More
at 12:08:49

We have struggled a couple of times recently when initially at least, the ref decides to let everything go early on. Wagner is right, but they should have had 3 or 4 yellows in first 10 minutes which would have changed everything.

But he didn't and that then distorted his decisions for the rest of the match...like not booking Sam...even once. Frustrating performance, was always going to tough to raise ourselves again after Monday's extreme high, but we KNOW we will bounce back.
COYB....this is ON

McKenna: Burns Scan News Positive
at 10:28:55

Omari and Moore have done amazing considering everything, but no question yesterday suited a more direct aggressive driving effort, which Wes and Hirst give us....you immediately saw the difference Ali made. Truth is you need the squad for all eventualities, so we need both back and they could be available for those last 3 games then who knows ?!

Tuanzebe Switches International Allegiance to DR Congo
at 09:34:41

Hate this narrative that he was not good enough for England so....

As we grow as human beings our feelings about who we are and where we hail from. This is a complicated and very personal issue that he has himself made....how much choice would he really have had when being considered for those youth teams with England.

Good luck Axel and hope you excel for us and your homeland.

Hutchinson: I Turned Down England and Jamaica Calls to Concentrate on Town
at 13:52:58

Agreed Len_Brennan. However if you WERE the manager of a top Premier League club, (or La Liga/Serie A/Ligue 1 etc.) then you would hope they were not following Dane Scarlett's development! Notwithstanding, Omari is a credit to our Club and most importantly himself; to play like that on the back of a the Player of the Month award shows he is humble and relentless. Wonder where he got that from ?! lol COYB

PS: the players clearly ARE talking about promotion now ! Bunch of liars. lol

Six Players Plus Boss McKenna in Team of the Week

Travis: I Could See It Going to the Last Day
at 12:28:18

Of course everyone is going to drop points as the top teams all have to play each other...even though we only have Saints at home. However we still have to go up the road. On the plus side, we know how to do this, we have the mentality for the run in, whereas the other teams at the top could not get results when they really needed to last year, and whilst this is a lower league, you wonder if they can/will cope. We are in this, but everyone get behind the boys tonight as every performance and point will be vital. COYB

European Clubs 'Monitoring' Hutchinson
at 10:30:21

Omari will back himself am sure, but going back to Chelsea where players seem to go backwards would be a big mistake. However, no one should forget he is performing in The Championship, and many of his best moments have been off the bench, when teams/defenders are either unprepared for him and/or have tired legs. He also has a manager who is doing right by him, developing his ability and mental side too.

Put simply Omari could do worse than stay at Town next season regardless of what League we are in, but based on this season Chelsea will no doubt want him loaned to a higher level, if only to increase his sale value and visibility!

Tread carefully Omari. You love it here and we love having you and you are in Team that is pulling for each other and having fun doing it; don't underestimate how unusual that is!

PS: we get promoted and sign Omari is a much better solution for all! COYB

Get well soon to the best Manager we never (properly) had. Am sure we in the North stand (and hopefully the rest of FPR) will find a moment to sing our thoughts of Mogga on Saturday.

McKenna: My Full Focus and Commitment is On Town
at 16:36:39

Nothing lasts forever, but we should enjoy these days under Kieran while we can. So when some idiots in the away end last week were getting annoyed with what we were doing on the pitch, then know that these things can factor. Keiran is no fool and if we have it in us to turn that quickly then maybe he would think another project is for him come the summer; can't see anything happening before or him leaving in the summer either if we get promoted...but he is no one's fool, so let's back him while we have him !

Former Blues Defender Smith Makes Australia Move
at 09:52:20

Often made a scapegoat in our darkest days instead of lauded and made captain. Happy for Tommy he has found a new home, but at 33 he could so easily still be here, giving guidance to the likes of Woolfy....esp with all that Championship experience. Top player, top man, top servant to this Club in the most trying of times; not many will be remembered fondly from that period but Tommy should be.
Good luck Tommy, they could do worse than having a team of Tommy Smiths !

Town Linked With Former German U21 International
at 00:18:11

Europablue my point was that this would be the 2nd window where expectations that the Club set have not been met as things stand, so we need to ensure we address that before the summer which would THEN be a third window in a row. Apology accepted

Town Linked With Former German U21 International
at 15:04:04

Fascinated by this. Not played even 1 season's worth of minutes in his 5 year pro career to date, never left Germany, but we have eyes on him?! Either amazing scouting, a complete punt (almost free-hit salary/fee wise presumably), or pure desperation. Am backing the Club and hoping for the former but can completely understand others feeling the opposite.

Time will tell if/when it happens but our recruitment under Ashton will come under scrutiny after this window regardless, as he has suggested we had plans/targets since the summer but clearly we were scrambling from the get-go....and it is not like we needed Hirst to get injured to know we needed a striker....in July!

For me, Ashton has been almost perfect since he arrived at the Club but recruitment was an issue when he was at Bristol and a review of approach needs to happen so that we do not fail to maximise a 3rd window in succession in the summer coming, as our progress will surely start to flounder at that point.....if we can then also keep hold of McKenna!

Morsy: You Feel Like You've Let the Fans Down
at 17:58:22

This is not Lincoln where our performance was shocking. Here we did most things right but being a bit disjointed showed, a couple of players were miles off it (sadly time up Sone), add some poor finishing and you open the door to the disastrous result we got. Hope all get a grip, we secure a decent striker or 3 and put Preston to the sword next week.

We had knocks this time last season and we know what happened. So congrats to Maidstone and on we go. COYB

Bid Lodged For Al-Hamadi, New Offer For Gallagher Turned Down
at 10:07:55

SpiritOfJohn is spot on. What is the point chasing down an average Champ striker when Blackburn have a history of not cashing in on their assets (think Brereton-Diaz), unless it is a decoy?! Al-Hamadi looks realistic, but you have to wonder what Gas thinks about that!

Former Blues Boss Hurst Returns to Shrewsbury
at 12:57:56

Right Club, hopefully right time for a decent guy who knows how to do the job. Obviously wrong Club and wrong time with us, but glad he has not had his career blighted by mistrusting ME and the state he found us in! You have to wonder how he would get on now with us, but that opportunity to step up to a Club like ours does not come around often, so he probably felt he had to take it, but he does have time on his side to have another crack at the Championship. At least he never told us all to F off on TV !

Town Targeting Owls Winger Johnson
at 12:06:49

Not wrong Europablue, but think TWTD has been better at not (re)posting every rumour that goes about which suggests this has legs. Despite being so proud of the Club and how we have operated in recent times, this would have to be viewed as an indictment on our transfer window. Despite being told the planning was going into this from the Summer and always had a gap for (e.g,) a striker, we really do just seem to be exploring options as they come up. Would love to think there is still a a plan, that we are waiting on a couple of player moves to be sanctioned by their parent Clubs, but not feeling that way right now. Am still trusting the process, just, but what an opportunity this season has presented for us to not exploit a January window, just as we failed under Evans/MM....have to believe we are better than that now.
