I think we had a better squad relative to the level, and a better team spirit too. The technical level in the current squad is higher, but the competition is much fiercer in League Two and we are up against clubs of similar size and resources.I think the quality of football was better when we came up from the conference. I think the squad unity was much better too. Same manager, just better players IMO.
It’ll be interesting whether they sack Bower or stick with him. Whatever happens if they open the chequebook again they could be another strong force next seasonSal£ord fail to even make the play offs for the third season in succession, despite spending a fortune.
I wonder when Neville will learn from his errors, or simply jack it in.
I am not sure they will ever be successful the way they are run by Neville. However, they can certainly take players away from us again.It’ll be interesting whether they sack Bower or stick with him. Whatever happens if they open the chequebook again they could be another strong force next season
That has not been the strategy. We have scored two or more goals in virtually every home game since Christmas.So with Port Vale failing to beat Newport 2 playoff places could have been up for grabs if we had scored more goals and not relied on a defensive stategy of trying to keep clean sheets and nicking the odd 1 goal winner.
But the aim for the season was promotion, in all probability we won't make the play offs so the manager rightly will be criticised as it will be a failureThat has not been the strategy. We have scored two or more goals in virtually every home game since Christmas.
Every club will have 'if only' stories at this stage, but the reality is despite all the opprobrium heaped on the manager we are only two points off the play offs and five off the automatic places, in a very tight top half of the table.
