Not all was "doom and gloom" in the Neilson era. Although there was so much wrong, there were some highlights.

My top 3 memories were :

1. Beating Posh with 9-men....the sheer manner of the team spirit. And I reckon we, the fans, played a massive part in that, inspiring on the lads. RN was sent to the stand at half-time so had no influence in the second-half...I really do reckon we played our part that day then

2. Winning at AFC Scum, again in the hostile (and ultra childish) atmosphere of that lot (for which the FA fined them)

3. The best footballing performance was winning at Posh, and that wonder goal from Chuks


Any additions ?

The comeback against Oldham for 4-4, beating Charlton away 2-0, the signing of Harvey Barnes, can't think of many others..

Na, not really.

The last year will be quickly forgotten & the first major blow to PW’s reputation fo finding good managers.

When are we going to hear from PW again?

I’ll never forget that 9 man Posh win, the atmosphere at SMK was electric.

My favourite memory was when the MK Dons Twitter account tweeted "Club statement: Robbie Neilson" and he was gone.

Yes. Agree. But although (obviously) it occurred in his era IMHO it was despite him not 'down to him'.
