Yep, that & Wycombe today, effectively deflating Rotherham.

I’ve taken the piss out of Wycombe’s ability, I wish we had their spirit.

33 pts now- slightly better than the worst side the Championship has seen.

Fantastic spirit too, they do and will leave it all on the pitch always.

I wish DH well, but dont share your enthusiasm for his (early) tenur. The players wanted to play for him, for whatever reason (and many have been suggested). They don't seem as keen under NP (for whatever reason). So it then becomes a question of what happens next. I know where i stand. And it doesn't involve recruiting from within or a friendly chum.....

Without his wins at beginning of season we would be in serious trouble.

Thanks, in hindsight, for keeping us up

We started off so well , we now have finally got a very experienced manager and it’s still shite !

And they were great wins. Fantastic to watch at the start of the season.

No they weren’t, 3/4 were poor to put it politely.

Coventry - poor throughout, lucky win

Stoke - very good from start to finish

Wednesday - poor for 70/90 minutes

Forest - absolute daylight robbery if it wasn’t for Bentley it could easily have been 6/7

Coventry we took over 2nd half.

Stoke dominant performance.

Wednesday fairly even first half. Tactical change and we deserved the win 2nd half.

Forest good first half but were lucky to come away with win.

I thought it looked very good. Was very optimistic about the season seeing that. And that was without some key players being injured too.

You weren't pleased with the start we had? I'd take those performances now for sure.

Pleased with results but found the performances rather negative.

Coventry at Home we got largely dominated.

Stoke Away - Good all round performance.

Sheff W Home - Was ok, nothing spectacular but got a win.

Forest Away - Went 2-0 up and relied on a Bentley masterclass.

 

The bad results were coming based on the very much backs against the wall style we were displaying.

No argument, if we put in as much as they have, we’d be miles better off.

Slightly better? Rotherham managed 23 points in 2016/17, with 5 wins and a -58 GD. They were, and remain, the worst second tier side since 1945. Wycombe have 8 wins and 33 points, and they haven't finished yet.

and quality

That is a pretty silly thing to say, they have 33 points, we have 49.

I think it unlikely they will get to that number, they would need to win 5 and draw 1 of their last 6, & we wouldn’t get another point.

It was a tongue in cheek comment but bears truth. We won a lot of games this season against the run of play. I couldn't tell you more than 5 games this season we've outplayed the opposition. Maybe you can remind me?

No, but who says Wycombe have, either?

It doesn’t remotely matter if you win “against the run of play” or not, the important thing is the win.

The Blackburn 0-0 recently was an awful game, I truly couldn’t care less, it was a vital point.

I'm not thanking him. 

He couldn't be bothered to thank the fans or the club for his years here, when leaving. 

Child.
