  1. The worst fixture we could have possibly got
  2. I personally wanted Hughton and felt let down when we didn’t get him. The club is ready to push for promotion and like every other fan, I had the expectation that we would bring in a proven manager that we could be genuinely confident in. Hughton ticked those boxes. For whatever reason, we didn’t go for Hughton and that’s a detail which was decided in the clubs recruitment process rather than Hughton’s ability. Perhaps he didn’t impress at interview, perhaps he wanted to spend more than the club were wanting to. I will hold my hands up and admit that I was less than impres
  3. Lack of impact players on the bench, our usual strong bench one of our biggest strengths. I really hope we won’t need it
  4. It’s an over reaction but I think a lot of it is fuelled by the clubs poor 5 week recruitment process before giving the job to DH. Especially when we have stated our aim is for promotion. The problem is that until he achieves significant success, fans will always feel that a proven manager would have done a better job. I like that DH keeps faith in his system and isn’t constantly changing as LJ did. I felt that LJ showed too much respect to the opposition, set up focusing on their strengths more than having the confidence in our own and over complicated games.
  5. Personally I think he still lacks that intelligence to be a goalscoring forward at present but his physical attributes make him an outstanding prospect. Last night, he would have made more of an impact coming on fresh from the bench, his energy would have been the boost we needed in the second half. On saying that, it will have done wonders for his development to start against the very top end championship defenders.
  6. I seem to recall a lot of concerns about Adam Webster being injury prone and that turned out to be a highly successful move for the club. When players of Mawson’s quality become available, they’re worth the gamble. Mawson was a perfect signing for us and has fit into the system very well. Though, with the intention to play 3 at the back, I always felt another centre back was needed.
