Yes - but not this season yet, two weeks tomorrow!


Why are you in such a rush to see the back of a manager who's team you haven't seen play? I wonder how many of those who attend regularly are so keen to see the back of him.

Saw enough over past seasons to know that I have little or no faith in him. Woking last season and his negative attitude before, during and after the game showed him in his true colours.

Yes, he's quite capable of managing a squad to achieve promotion.

Whilst automatic promotion would be ideal, and avoid a nervous May, via the play-offs is more likely (and I presume is PH and JF's minimum target - winning them, like any game, is less certain). It's a season-long objective, and should be judged over that time (unless it's clear that it won't be possible without a change in personnel, and that's not the case currently in my opinion).

And despite the variable results so far this season, the play-offs are still very achievable - it's a good quality squad (for this level). Two important factors though are 1) injuries - the squad has been badly hit so far (how many games has the full squad been available?!); and 2) confidence - last season PH demonstrated that he could bring together a very close and committed group of players, the risk to achieving that again with this season's squad is if pressure and criticism mounts.

If it does not happen this year most of the players will be gone as will the manager, which makes it all the more urgent that we get our finger out and sign more players of the caliber to do it this time, Luton made that final push but not on a shoe string

Let's face it, we are just not quite good enough, not bad by any means, just unlucky/unfortunate but finding consistency is a massive problem.
