I am back! Hope everyone is well! Having read through a few posts etc I see a lot of us are feeling very down and negative and I haven't come to give the old were going to be fine chat or its just bad luck etc. Mr Adkins made a few mistakes from the end of the season and it has obviously continued into this one. He knew which areas we were weakest in and completely ignored the need for a solid defence if a team can't score they can't win, West Ham have been a prime example of this to me already this season and I can't see them having any problems staying up. He also did not identify his targets early enough and secure their services it was constantly "oh we might sign this player" and then "oh there has been a hitch" etc just look at Chelsea they decided who they wanted and had them signed up even before Man City could blink. Loaning out Billy Sharp was also a big mistake he looked dangerous every game I watched him in pre-season and then to just allow him to leave like that left me scratching my head. It now appears he wouldn't even want to return. So in short this season after last year has brought us all back down to earth but that is just currently there is still time to turn things round however I feel if we are to do this then we will have to spend more money again in January and I hoped after the summer spending we wouldn't need to spend anymore. Adkins to me is a brilliant manager and a excellent manager when dealing with players and fans he says what they/we want to hear. However this is not good enough and after defeat to West Brom tonight he will rightly be replaced with someone with better knowledge of the top flight and transfers. Goodbye Nigel thanks for everything! Peace!
