    How many times are we gonna write off a season midway through, and hope to rebuild in the summer. It feels like we’ve been saying this for about 4 or 5 years and we get worse every time.
    Get the takeover sorted this week and try to salvage this season. I know I’m just pissed off because of the match, but I’m growing impatient that nothing has been sorted yet and the Jan window is passing us by.

    They want another appointment in place before announcing.

    I think it's all about the long game with Safc at the moment. They won't say it but it's a longer plan in play. So many players will be heading out at the end of the season. It will then be a new dawn. Has to be. This lot are ****ing **** and I actually hate some of them. Poor habits, been here too long and are on wages that are top of league one.

    Get them all out. Start again. Going to be hard with the cuts Donald has made beging the scenes but I have faith in Speakman. Will take time though.

    We've got over half a season to be 3 wins and a draw better than the 8 teams above us.

    We've not exactly been blessed on the preparation front since Johnson has been here.

    Personally, I've got faith in him.

    I do have an idea mate but was hoping it would just be done at the same time as KLD became chairman.

    IMO it will definitely be done before the end of the window and no reason it can't be done this week providing everyone is in place first.

    I'm happy with it all but really wish they'd just get it done.

    People seem to be forgetting there’s a salary cap here. Unless we strike lucky and go up by sheer fluke this season then there has to be a long term approach cos the rules prevent t us from buying our way out if this league regardless of the wealth of our owners.
    Next season will be a chance to sort out the playing squad. The question is will it be in this league or the championship? I don’t see how we could have a huge overhaul in this window so we need to be patient til contracts run out to get rid of most of these losers

    I was saying bad habits. Just reading a bit on LJ after the game there.

    He said - It’s really important that the lads buy in to that – and anyone who doesn’t will be gone, quicker than you can say their name


    Fuming and gets it.

    Can’t wait for some of these failures to be gone, utter garbage.

    Tbh mate, that's exactly how I feel. Sick if feeling like the club is being taken lightly. I remember the reidy days, it felt like the away team we're intimidated most of the time. Even if we lost we battled for everything. We need that back asap.

    LJ gets it. I have heard first hand tonight that the hair dryer was out after the game. Comments to local media suggest it was indeed some serious home truths. Good.

    Hopefully, he can make some big changes soon. Once a few are gone, the others might pull back into line.

    Long game mate. New lot come in to an absolute mess. Like beyond what most can imagine. Won't be changed this January.

    Long game

    To be honest even if we fluke promotion the overhaul would be gargantuan. Mentally and ability wise this squad would get torn apart in the Championship.

    That's all we can ask. I'm genuinely excited about having a club set up correctly. The mind boggles at the ineptitude btgsts ran through this once great club for far too long.

    These habits have been allowed to set in! Players going with it aswell, all down to no leadership. Few people at the academy will be among the first few out hopefully, they been part of the problem.

    Tonight felt really desperate. The personnel just aren't good enough.
