Quoted from Mariner_09
Since Jolley was sacked, the season has been one of missed opportunities, had we finished the umpteen chances we had, in the games Limbrick managed, against Cheltenham, Scunny, Carlisle and Macclesfield and then converted good positions and leads into wins against Crawley, Orient and FGR we'd now have 16 more points and we'd be 6th!

For me, that shows as much as anything that there isn't much in the league and we maybe need a bit more ruthlessness in front of goal and we'll be right up there.


You might ponder where we would be if Holloway had been appointed a month earlier. We might have got more than a draw at Macclesfield and/or Carlisle and got more than 1 point from the home league matches with Swindon, Scunthorpe & Crawley. Quite feasible based on 2020 results that we might have got another 6 or 7 points from those games.

The thing is with that, it is highly conceivable that should those results have been more positive, we probably wouldn't have Holloway as manager now.

Would be happy with that.

I’m buoyant but realistic, it’s too late
Might be fun watching for a change though

Fully agree.

However, if a miracle were to happen and we managed to reach 71+ pts and make the play-offs, that is one hell of a run of form to take into them with you.

We'd need to be the form team in the division between now and the end of the season, we may even start the play-offs a close to favourites.

Happy to go with Ollie's flow and watch players bloom under his tenure.

He seems to have chosen loanees and signings well up.to now.

He is also giving all of the squad a chsnce to impress him so that he has choices for selection.

He believes in expression and ball on the floor, and some of the passing last night (as seen on tv) was a higher standard than Div 2.

Considering that some of the squad have only been here 2 minutes then the future for the rest of this season must be bright.

It's a good time to be a fan !!

There's often (not always) a team that has a fantastic late run and roars into the play offs on a wave of good form. Just saying.


40+ years of black and white striped misery.

We're looking up for change, rather than down. Not enough games left to reach the play offs this season, just going to dream of what's going to happen next season.
