Automatic Promotion
« on: January 13, 2018, 07:03:22 PM »
We’re now only 10 point so off 2nd  049:gif

With some decent signings this January, it’s clear to see we could be in with a shout.

Khan and Co. it’s your time to shine

Khan & Co will probably interprete todays result as further evidence that we don't need to make any new signings, well they would, wouldn't they?

A realist Colin, but hopefully I will be proved wrong!

On the other hand they may think that by spending a few bob on a CB, LB & striker we could go for automatic promotion. Well they would, wouldn´t they.

Unless Steve Sess is the second coming, I fear we might need a right back too.  I have an inkling that Fred will depart.

Great win today in anyone’s book. We ground it out today, which sometimes in the past we fell short of doing that well enough.
Nevertheless we cannot be too smug as we rode our luck on occasions and got the rub of the green. The problem is we cannot rely on that alone.
We are in a great position but only if the Khans do their duty in the window and bring in the reinforcements we need, otherwise today’s great victory will be wasted, and that will be a shame to be let down by the owner of all people.

An injection of top class talent right now would probably make us a team really capable of a serious promotion challenge. Of course we will fiddle around looking for players that come cheap but are capable of doing a job and will spend most of the next 19 games getting ready for bench warming dutiess

Think we will not sign anybody and if we did could the make us better from the off,think the transfer committee are taking that view.my opinion would like a striker(proven at this level) and a CB if only to keep redeem and the boys at the back motivated.

Do not let today’s result camouflage our problems. We are far from the finished article, and if we do not bring in the necessary reinforcements, we will fall short once again, and today’s magnificent victory will be wasted, and that would be a real shame.

Press the button for a proper striker and a left back.  We need to release Sess to play further forward.  We look so much more dangerous.  Hes wasted at left back.

We rode our luck today, and the  cards fell for us, for a change. But it was also a resolute performance,  especially defensively.

It seems almost within our grasp, especially if we  could get the right reinforcements in.
But will we spoil the ship for an 'apporth of tar?

I agree. Based on this match, I feel that we need a proper cover for Sess.

Everything lights up when he can comfortably move up and down the left flank in the last 10min.

Also, a pedigree striker.

This 2 seems to be the missing pieces for a scintillating performance in this match.

Sensible post Andy.
This message board is completely split between those who trust and those that distrust.
The problem is, those that distrust wish to infect every single thread to hammer home their opinions, even aspirational ones about automatic promotion.

Saturday is already gone.  Let's do better on Saturday.  Let the Khans' not get so carried away that they forget their loyal duty to strengthen our squad.  Let's aim for maximum points in January.
