We can still get 54 points, and we’re only 17 points behind Rotherham in 6th, with a game in hand.

No, no..please not this...do not even waste a second more even thinking about this. We will be lucky to just avoid relegation, so please do not get any ideas otherwise. We may have a new management team, but still the same players....are you suddenly expecting things to turn around overnight ?

I think we'll bounce and end up mid table and we should be happy with that and then focus on the objective next season.

In all honesty, I don’t think I’d be overly upset if we got relegated, that may sound funny because I would have been pissed off to go down under RN, but I feel like we’ve got our identity back, and a season....he says hopefully......in League 2, wouldn’t be the end of the world.

Whilst I agree wholeheartedly with your point the players by and large aren’t the issue. Good squad awful manager. That’s over now.

Top six? Why settle? We're only 25 points off automatic promotion...
Ah, no, wait, we've played a game more than Blackburn. Yip, perhaps you're right, let's be realistic. Play-offs it is. ;)

I agree that we have some good players in the squad, Aneke, Walsh, Nicholls, Williams and Gilbey are good players in their positions for League One. I think that the squad overall isn't necessarily 'good' though, we're so reliant on Aneke going forward it's ridiculous, he's basically the only creative outlet that we have and we don't have a consistent goalscorer. Whether or not Sow or Ugbo will prove to be that in the second half of the season is anyone's guess. But I think that while Neilson was the biggest issue at the club, there are definitely some pretty big problems with our squad.

Neilson's problem was picking Sow over Aneke. Sow has been poor as a goal scorer (which is what he is paid the good money for).

On paper our team is top half. Nowhere near the play offs and no where near winning the league. They are just as much to blame as Neilson and I hope they buck up their ideas.

You may well be right. But I am looking forward to seeing how some others may now step up if their confidence is boosted. Also Tavernier looked very promising at the Cobblers game.
