We really should be at the top end of the league, given our size and history, and from what i have seen of this division, it shouldn't be beyond us to get out of it in the right direction. We are, and have been, under performing for far too long, and everyone seems to have lost their ambition along the way. We are at least a natural League 1 side in my view and it's about time we got back up there. Balls to mid table i say, let's crack on and at least threaten the play off spots.

Build Steady and not pressure MJ and the players as we know we will all get carried away if we do well in the first few games.
After first game last season we all thought here we go and look what an absolute nightmare it turned out to be
Think it’s more important we constantly show our support for the team (like at Swindon back end of last year)
Course we all want success but let’s give MJ time to build on a promising start both on and seemingly off the field

A big factor could be if we get lucky in the cups  a win here and there then a draw that is chosen for TV could see improvements in January .....we haven't  a lucky/ profitable cup run for ages

Too early to tell, things have changed, size and history don’t mean that much, at 5pm on the opening day last season I thought we’d be competing for promotion and Chesterfield would be right up there with us.

I’m sure MJ will recruit sensibly but I’m not convinced that other than reading Wiki and other teams message boards we’ll know too much about his recruits, then again I doubt many knew too much about the likes of Waters, Cummings, Gilbert, Tilson, Mendonca , Amond etc.. etc.. etc.. before they joined.

Anyway all that said mid table next season, automatic the season after 🤞

As long as we stay well clear of the drop this time I'll be happy and anything else will be a bonus.

Obviously promotion would be the ultimate but if that doesn't happen it would be a bonus if Jolley could have us finish top half and above the "can't do anything wrong" Cowley's.

I'll wait for a completed squad first before I make a proper prediction, but I suspect we'll at least be in the top half of the table somewhere

We need a massive improvement on most of the last 16 or so seasons, and a driven professional like Jolley will expect nothing less.

There is no way Jolley will accept mid table mediocrity and will be busting a gut to make a success of it, and these days you are either on the up or with the also rans, and I reckon we will do pretty well . How well depends on whether the board support him 100%.

There are many many examples of terrible seasons followed by a great one, and I hope for great things next season.

The board must back him to the hilt though, that is the least they can do.
