    I'm merely someone who is getting tired of all the sh!t going on and looking forward to a competent manager having a good crack at the league we're in next season.

    If that makes me a dream ticket for looking forward to the football side of things, so be it.

    Genuine question - those questioning the possibility of optimism - did you watch many games last season?

    If you did, you would see there is a clear reason to be optimistic in MR. With an inherited squad- the same squad who ultimately relegated us - he produced encouraging performances and good results. With a full pre season and time to recruit and plan a strategy, why wouldn't we have some optimism and hope in MR?

    I accept we are at our lowest point, but we have a good L2 manager, on paper we are one of the biggest team in L2 (I accept it's subjective depending on how you measure "big") and have been told (pinch of salt) we will have a top half budget.

    I'm sure we all felt pretty low two summers ago - we'd just avoided relegation from L1 - yet the first half of the following season was one of the most exciting I've ever seen as a fan.

    It's a new season, let's approach it with some level of hope, otherwise, what's the point.

    Well Expectations, or may I call you Great, I totally agree with your sentiments. Let's have faith in MR and get behind the team, who ever they may be.

    I had the same optimism when we were relegated from the Premership and to a lesser degree we were relegated from the Championship. Now I don't see what great talent we have to get back at the first attempt over the other clubs in League 2 which have been trying to get out for years. To underestimate them because we are a "big named club" is just plain wrong. If we were to play Portsmouth , Plymouth and Doncaster in some round robin competition right now we'd struggle to beat any of them.

    We also looked like we gave up when we got relegated..... I hope we can make a stab at winning the league but we have been let down so many times already. There are some massive failures in the team last season so let's hope he has the scope to make this happen

    If we can keep hold of Robins, I reckon we will go up.

    Worryingly, I agree.

    Years of failure allow me to be prepared to be disappointed, mind... but I'm confident we'll make a decent stab of it.

    Just hope if we haven't had a great start after half a dozen games, neither the club nor the fans panic, and allow Robins the time to sort it out. I actually have more faith in him as manager than any we've appointed since pre-Coleman.

    Are they? Or is it a case of out with the old (on higher wages) and in with the new (on less money)? Whatever it is Robins is certainly making the most of it.

    I'm not saying you're wrong, but it's a bit premature to claim you were right, don't you think!!!

    Have to agree.
    It's the history that makes us fear.
