    Over the last 5 games we find ourself 2nd behind West Brom in the current form table.

    what a strange game this football stuff is, 5 games prior to this we were dead certs for relegation in my opinion. (Maybe still are in some eyes) but it’s a credit to that lads that were actually involved in a relegation fight again.

    Our next two games are against teams coming off back to back defeats too, can we keep this run going? I will probably say this another 11 times, but Saturday is massive!

    COYR!!

    Luton 6th and Wigan 8th too. Meanwhile Middlesbrough and Hull are 24th and 23rd, Reading are 21st and Wednesday (who could be dragged in with a points deduction hanging over them) are 20th.

    It might all collapse within the next couple of weeks of course, but at the moment it looks like it could all shape up to be quite interesting!

    Reading who are in the relegation zone of the forum table. Followed by home to Cardiff who haven't scored in two games.

    just imagine a world where we stay up by 1 point, due to a points deduction for wednesday.

    Must be terribly shocking time for those that’s been berating the owners.

    We are in a good run of form, primarily in my eyes as we have become defensively more stable since adding, shock horror, a defender with some experience and leadership qualities.

    They refused to provide that in the summer, stubbornly not listening to the then manager or any of the fan base who cried out for it.

    Conway told us we didn’t need any more experience as we had ‘veterans’ - his word - in Mowatt and Woodrow.

    They finally relent when the ship had just about sailed, and you’re on the ‘the owners are fine and I said so all along’ bandwagon.

    If we survive this season it will by the skin of our teeth and despite them, not because of them. It could and should have been a good season, comfortable.

    Had we kept Pinnock, or signed Sollbauer or someone similar in August rather than solely kids, we’d be ten or twelve points minimum better off.

    So no nudge,it’s not a terribly shocking time for those that berated the owners. This run of form proves how wrong they were. As most of us said.

    Only truth in all of that ..... is ...... ‘as most of us said’.
    I don’t know how many times people have to explain what happened with Pinnock - or how the strategy of recruitment works - but it’s obviously not getting through.

    But yet when Patrick Cryne did it in January 2017 you acted like he murdered your first born.

    But then, we all knew you were a hypocrite who only likes to go against the majority.

    Even if you stretch it out to last 10 games and project that same form for rest of the season we'd finish 4th bottom above, Hull (5 points in last 10 games!!), Luton (12) and Middlesborough (7) would finish bottom.

    Let's hope we don't finish 3rd bottom behind Wigan.

    Doesn't change the fact that had we had some experience from the start we'd have given ourselves more of a chance.

    Better quality from the start and we'd be safe

    Us mere fans knew in the summer we needed a older defender. Our board who are within the business wrote off the first half of the season by waiting until January.

    Our head coach didn't play Halme for ages and then brought him in to play midfield, only moving him to defence when forced to due to circumstances such as Diaby failing his drugs test.

    Again, you really are a cap end aren’t you? You read only the words you want to in any given post.

    What I said was ‘if they’d kept Pinnock OR signed Sollbauer or someone similar in August’.

    Either of those two scenarios would have given us a chance. Signing 21 and 22 year olds from continental Europe didn’t. We all knew that, they took an age to amend the plan.

    Tweak it as you would say.

    My point, (which is obviously not getting through...), is that the amount of time it has taken the board to realise this is ridiculous, and does not point towards their capability being sufficient to sustain a championship football club.

    Spot on and I suspect the change only came when Struber asked for experience and they realised they couldn't get rid of two managers for the same thing.
