There was a lot of hypocrisy from people regarding Adkins after we went on a good run during the midpart of the season, he was never really my cup of tea and I was probably the most vocal critic but even I have to give him some credit in the end. When the dust has settled we got a solid midtable finish. I had doubts about the lack of progress of strikers like Dicko, Keane and Martin with Adkins coaching, but on the other hand Adkins seemed to work wonders with the wingers. I'm not sure if that was just because the wingers we had/have like Grosicki and Bowen and Wilson are just superb natural talents though who don't need coaching and maybe even Pugh comes in that bracket. The main problem at the club is the owners regardless of who the manager is but you just wonder who is going to be able to work with whats left after all our best flair players leave in the pre-season.
