Can I offer a different viewpoint?

I think it shows how far we have mended as fans, in addition to the team, after the heartache of the last couple of years - that we can start being pragmatic about things again.

Not one person would have been happy to exit the Trophy - it still means so much to all of us. Warrington are a decent outfit, capable of beating us on their day. And yes, we're great (at this level) but not infallible.

Thankfully when some of our fans were getting on PP's back after the indifferent start to the season, he was mature enough to realise what we'd all been through (as was noted at the time).

I disagree. He showed a distinct lack of understanding of our plight. Obviously he has only heard the boards views, and his recent comments show he still doesn’t understand the fans gripe with those that run the club.

Look, I doubt PP was happy we went out. And i'm pretty sure he understands why fans are fed up. All in all who gives a toss as long as he gets us up? We went out of the trophy to a fellow promotion contender on a replay. Its hardly the end of the world is it.

PP could call us all a bunch of halfwits for all I care as long as he ha us ten points clear in April and the players enjoying playing in front of the halfwit fans.

The board are disgrace and no doubt they influence his thinking they pay his wages and we all have to tow the line with our employers from time to time. Dont let it muddy the waters of the good job he is currently doing with the rest of the management team.

His real test comes in March and April when he has to get this promotion over the line.

I think you misunderstand my point. I have nothing against PP, I just don’t think he understands the situation.

Agreed that his job is his job and we’ll all be happy if he gets us promoted, expected or not.

Had we beaten warrington and followed their path we may only be 3 points clear at the moment...had we beaten shildon we may be sitting here 2nd or 3rd in the league biting our nails 3 points behind with a couple of games in hand......
few quid more in the bank I'll grant you ......
I love the trophy and cup....my best memories...leatherhead....mal bailey's winner at Runcorn....the scarboro marathon semi....everton....spurs...blackpool etc etc....
Prepared to bypass those memories for one title win this season and yes I accept we have a squad, but that would probably mean more resting players for league games before the big trip to Accrington in the 1st round?
I'm glass half empty this season :-)

how you working this out? Only the Stafford game clashed with the trophy (so only 3 points), and that game was pulled forward from March (when we now have a free Saturday) because we went out of the trophy

Your point about the Shildon is ludicrous as well, how many league points on the next 3 FA cup days did we earn? Have you checked? (it was 5 points, so not a great return) Do you think those games would have been replayed by now?

Look if you don't think we got the squad to compete just say it, but that would be pretty embarrassing at this level. The ultimate insult to this clubs once proud history

May. Stamford Park on a sunlounger with a bottle of Prosecco celebrating our having earned the right to mix it with Stockport County and others of that Ilk. Bring it on so I can dream till August.

We'll have merely achieved the right to play County again.
