1 loss in 7
2 home clean sheets in a row

or

1 win in 5
Not scored in 2 home games

13 games in, and only Jones has scored more than 2...

After 13 games, we have 18 points, and we are only 5 points of the play-offs and 12 points above the relegation zone

This time last season we only had 2 more points under Hurst who everyone seems to love and wish we never let go, Yet slade needs to go?

After 13 games last season, Blackpool had 14 points, and Exeter had 13 points... these met in the play-off final.

There is more to it than the above, i get that, as Saturday was one of the worst games ive been to in a long long time.

However, if you didnt know the table, or results, and read this forum, you would think we was in chesterfields place right now...

That's a very Slade way of looking at things. The points and league position don't concern me, the dire football and loss of supporters do.

Kudos for the positive spin though, it makes a change.

If we won the next six home games, no matter how it was acheived, BP would be full and buzzing again!

No doubt.

As some have said, the only way turgid football will be accepted is if it's winning football with a few goals thrown in.

Which is pretty much what Slade delivered last time he was with us and that got us to the PO Final. The Football wasn’t great but we was hard to beat and at the end of the season we was in with a shout at promotion

Check out L2 attendances for Saturday, that tells you alll you need to know.

We'll be stop start to the 50 points mark then the season will fizzle out.

Let's see what the transfer window brings before we write the season off. The next Michael Reddy could be on his way to BP - he might be already here, just not playing regularly. For all our deficiencies we are only a few points off the playoffs, one or two good signings and a clear run with a settled side might give our season a huge lift. I remember the year Mansfield came from nowhere and won the Conference, it can be done

We had Michael Reddy and Gary Jones, we have Hooper and Matt now.
