Well, that’s it then. League One next season!

Looking forward to the rebuild job over the summer , hopefully around our talented
U 23squad with a few senior pros mixed amongst them.

This relegation had been coming for several seasons , not just this one or because McCarthy left. His final 3seasons merely papered over the ever growing number of cracks. HE failed to take the squad further . Instead he focused on “ being hard to beat” with all the boring negative tactics that entailed . Trust me, I’m GLAD HE GOT SACKED! I couldn’t face another season with that manager at the helm . Hurst was simply our of his depth , and successfully replaced seasoned Championship players with League One and Two players : it shows !!

Lambert has been left to salvage whatever he can for an apology of a squad . He is left to do that in a January window which means he can only bring in loanees to try and overcome the mountain of a task that is survival . It was never going to happen was it!

So turning to the summer, I think we will see Lambert rip this apology if a first team squad up and build from the U23 and bring in players that will sign on the dotted line and be ours. This will make a difference going forwards . But League One will not be a stroll in the park . Far from it. But I think we’ll have for the first time a team to get behind and one that will be ours and one that will compete and play decent football .

I’ll be there like many others . Why? Because we are Town fans to the core .

COYBs and of course ITID

Since Paul Jewell, the narrative has been, “it’s a rebuild job.”

My GOD it’s getting f**king tiresome.

I don't think it's all that bad, we just need to gel...
