although i agree were terrible, i still dont think were going down, hull are terrible, so are stoke hudds and charlton. luton and barnsley are pretty much down and theres also wigan who might get a 12 point deduction. were terrible, but there are several teams below us who are just as bad if not worse below us. we just have be less *** than the teams below us which we should be able to do. 

I think our problem is the fixture list. A lot of the teams below us play each other which means that plenty of them will pick up points between now and the end of the season. Whereas I can’t see us getting a single point in our remaining games.

Cursed at home.

Not cursed. Just a poor squad with zero confidence and manager with no ambition or tactical nous. Playing to our ability given those factors really

Are our young crop of players good? Or do we overhype with rose tinted specs?

Controversial opinion alert: 

 

I don't think our young players are that good whatsoever. Coulson has a bit of pace but no defensive awareness and gets torn to pieces by any half decent winger. Spence can be ok on his day but seems a bit hit and miss sadly. Fry is a donkey in the back line. Tav is probably the brightest spark. Maybe I'm being overly critical but that's how I simply see it

They could probably become good, with the right coaching. But they have probably been tarnished at least by a few seasons of inept management.

Still time for them to come good...but only with the right staff in place.

Worried again. Sick of feeling we might have found a formation that works, a bit of form and confidence and then another rubbish performance.  Back to square one. 
 

And sick to death of Maddo suggesting players should go down when they’re tackled in the box every week as well. It’s cheating Maddo. And not what we want to see.

    • Thanks for this I do have an interest in Railways and I guess I was a bit of an anorak in my youth🤪
    • as far as I know, it is still "under consideration"..  which usually means nobody wants to invest the money required ..  would certainly help even if only open on match days, but I fear it will go the way of the wind turbine and unless people start to kick up a fuss, the Transporter ..
