    Well we came up from the Championship on a high and that enabled us to gather momentum to a cup final and a 10th final placing. What an impression for the doubters ! Season 2 brought about the dreaded 2nd season syndrome and boy did we oblige !! A finale not for the faintest heart but what a match ! Right we had weathered the storm and now it was time to start building in order to establish ourselves in the top flight. I didnt want to hear the ” We are punching above our weight comments ” I wanted the chairman to move forward and put this club firmly on the map but I am afraid that has not happened ! We have sold our best players which I appreciate is unfortunately a common occurrence with the smaller club but we have slowly replaced them with Championship class players. We have had a couple of other decent signings along the way but alas they have either gone already or are earmarked for moves come Summer ! The current manager despite his history with the club is quite simply not the man for the job as he is bereft of tactics and to be honest has not got enough experience to guide our ship away from the rocks that are getting closer ! I dont know who we could replace him with as that always seems to be the riposte from the pro Bob brigade, all I know is he is not the man for the job ! I dont want us to go down and I cling to the hope that there are worse teams than us this season but that is not how it should be should it ! The football I have witnessed of late has been shoddy and not ” Beautiful ” as was promised or claimed ( You choose ) Hopefully the 2 new strikers will get the chance to prove themselves as Mr Scotland in my opinion has not done that and if anyone thinks he needs more time then I am sorry but you are deluded ! I am not a one man Scotland hate campaign as certain folk may now think but my frustration for us to succeed comes to the fore sometimes on matches and my recent spectacle was just frustration and I tend to say what I see and he is not good enough ! Not just my opinion though is it ?? The thing is we aint won many of late and are precariosly just above the drop zone but I wont miss a single home game and will gladly leap around for a few seconds if Scotland breaks his duck but the manager needs to sort things and quickly and sort out the problems that we can clearly see yet he cant through his folded arms. I would like to end by saying as this is a forum everyone is entitled to their opinions and if I am not to be converted as some might say well how come I return every single home game ! Perhaps I am mad !!

    I think most of us agree with the above but if Whelan sticks to his word then he will give Bob at least the rest of this season and next. All we can do is hope last night made Martinez open his eyes to how useless Scotland is and how the 4-5-1 system doesn’t have to be used in every game.
    Time to forget last night and hope the new lads fit straight in, ideal game on Saturday to get back on track and show Bruce he made the wrong choice.

    The parallels with the Canvey Island game are striking.

    Lets just hope that last nights game is the catalyst that Roberto needs to bring home to him how much work he and the squad are going to have to put in and move forward, just as the Canvey Island game was for Jewell.

    I was concerned about Scotlands abilities at this level at the start of the season, and now I know I was right to be. He should have gone to Barnsley.

    4 5 1 at home to a lower league team, is poor. Our midfield at times were falling over each other and lacked a quality pass into the final third. Mind you even if they did find that pass the likelihood of anything coming from it was negligable.

    If we survive, and that game in hand against Bolton is a massive game for us, I fear it’s time for a big clear out and rebuild again. Will we ever have any sustained stability? :roll:

    We all know that Scotland isn’t the answer – no matter what the question is – but what if we get injuries to Moses, Rodallega or the other guy? He isn’t bad enough to be discarded even as a squad player.

    I think it would have been good for the player to go to his level ie the championship. He is a good player at that level.

    We need goals desperately from now on. We have chanced it with 1 and a half strikers all season, we would have to be really unlucky to struggle with three strikers now.
