Fair enough - I withdraw that comment and look forward to the positive future posts.
I've been making at least what I think to be constructive football posts since the season and have been frustrated at pretty understandable moments. We had gotten into a setup I liked watching and I said as much many times

I think that's a somewhat unfair representation
he's spot on. I'd go further and say some people will be disappointed we stayed out of the bottom 3
With a bit of assistance from Wigan but yes
so what, we might get a bit of assistance from Wednesday but they scraped up, now they're kicking on.

We may do the same, just some people expect us to be comfortably mid table already, it's fucking unrealistic. And actually, at his stage last season, Charlton were in 7th yet still went down so some people need to get a reality check.

Great set of results today, let's go and get the three points against Cardiff.
I watched their game today - we'll do well to take anything off them. Difficult opponent. Big, organised and if we drop deep Keiffer Moore will hurt us. That said, Millwall were the same as them (but not as good) and we play a different way, so not sure how that will pan out. Cardiff defender Morrison was hobbling a bit, so I'm hoping he may be unfit for Wednesday night!!

Great set of results today. Up to us now to try and take advantage. Personally I’m not concerned about league table more my concern about where the next win or goal is coming from

He isn't and the idea some will be delighted at relegation is nonsense. Always said I would be over the moon with 21st.

Perhaps if I seem short of patience or more downbeat it's because that reflects how I feel thanks to non-football related matters this year.

As I said when I first joined this forum if we’re in a relegation scrap come April I’ll be amazed
Early days mate. Let's see how strong your squad is. Woodrow seems a massive player for you.

Like most teams keep your best players on the pitch you should be fine.

the loan signing of Matty James as given us a fantastic chance of staying up, he’s best player we’ve had since the last time we had him, styles is the next best Woodrow int in top three Mowatt comes after the first two I mentioned

as is the idea that some people don't care if we lose but that's the shit that gets thrown at people who try to be philosophical about our current predicament so fuck it.
And it's the same fucking whingers who were spouting the same type of shit at times last season, they think it has to always be forward momentum it's totally unrealistic.
That run we went on from Christmas onwards was an anomaly, but some people think it should be the norm regardless of the league.

Really? - not criticised us once in that post
Stack up your posts alongside mine and see who's down in the doldrums. Anyway, not like me to get involved in spats, so stay safe down on the South coast - had a nice break down there last year in our motorhome. A campsite near Whitehawk FC pitch-it was a nice little set up.

If it's obvious I'm generally down perhaps whacking in the sarcasm in the first place is unhelpful.

I hope you're not including me in that, I may be thoroughly depressed by last night's result but it doesn't mean I don't want us to win games, get up the league, win the league, survive in the Premiership, finish mid table, get top 4, have a champions league run, win the EPL, win the champions league and get invited to the super league, win that 10 years in a row, declare independence and win the World Cup.

Apologies - I've now read that you have personal stuff going on. Had just thought it was all CCFC related. Best wishes and hope things pick up for you.

to be honest I don't think anyone does, just some of the moaning pisses me off.
I honestly can't understand how people who said at the start of the season they'd take staying up by the skin of our teeth are moaning when after 12 games, if the league stops, we just stay up by the skin of our teeth!

We all knew it would be a long hard frustrating season, we knew we were going into it with players who probably couldn't cut it at this level, so why are we suddenly expecting different?

I think for me it's that we've shown we can actually compete. We're so close to being a mid table team if we cut a couple of errors out. The frustrations of last night are that we got rid of things that were working for us.

It's probably because we've had some very frustrating games and people can't vent in the usual way at the game itself

Yeah, not being able to call the ref a bald prick or something doesn't help. I'm not even joking. City games are a great outlet of stress for me, meet friends have a drink, vocal support, banter with the other team's fans, moaning at decisions.

Plus if we lose I'm normally too pissed to remember the reasons why. This year has been shit.

That and being perpetually locked inside kinda screws with one's head. Hoping against hope that we can at least go to some games in the latter part of the season

I'm not incredibly bothered about going and being sat in silence miles from anybody else in silence with a mask on. I'll probably still do a couple but it's not the experience.

All 3 teams promoted from L1 grouped together. Just shows the massive gap between the 2 leagues.

Who wants Andy Thorn back? Its just a comparison with Relegation season.

Only if he signs Bruno Cazarine.

Seriously, he was never a manager and shouldn’t have thought he was. He was also awfully backed by shitsu during our relegation season. We started the season with Christie and Bigi in the team. Think our squad this season is stronger but then so is this league.

It lost a net 27 points from winning positions to be fair

Bloody hell. You really have just summed up our start to the season😂. Just got to take the positive, a point and clean sheet. I want to leave out the awful performance and Juke letting us of the hook but can’t. We need 3 points against Cardiff. No excuses.

I have to watch what I say about Norwich being top of the league and our low chances of getting anything from them
