    60 points or more is a definite improvement on the last few seasons, I’ll be ecstatic with that given where we were a few weeks ago. Still a long way off though.

    I would still settle for 10th to 12th, a top half finish

    I have to say our game management seems to have improved massively since the turn of the year. Whereas we were often frittering games away earlier in the season we are now making meaningful substitutions that actually enhance our performance and we've more than held our own against Norwich, Watford, Brentford and Bournemouth who are four of the best teams in the division. I've seen over the years there's always a team that suddenly puts a big winning run together to break into the Play-Offs and on current form there's everything to play for, a tall order but worth the fun trying...

    I still think that behind the scenes there were things going on surrounding BOS. Charlie coming back has given everyone a lift and the strengthing in midfield has helped. Wins breed confidence. I only hope MW doesnt win manager of the month, that goes to the happy dane in Middlesex....dont want to put kiss of death on our performances.

    I am going to say that BOS going and Carroll getting injured have turned our season round.

    Without BOS we can play a different system and more importantly Willock can come on to tear up the end of a match.

    No Carroll ...we got Johansen and Field.
    Carroll did no wrong, but he was Amos's backup anyhow....but Johansen and Field seem a step up.

    And 3 at the back frees up Kane...dies he remind you of anyone.....( A right sided Ryan Manning?!,)

    This is why I’m not in any prediction league - I had us getting 6 points in Jan and Feb, not 18. I didn’t think we’d be in the 4th round draw, but who did?
    Incoming players seemed to have gelled quickly for a change

    on another day it could have gone the other way, they missed a few chances - saying that the effort, pressing and determination in the last few minutes really makes you proud, fantastic to see

    Very happy for the win and the fact that we now have stitched a couple of wins together is the best.
    Anything above survival is a bonus.

    Yes. But they all need to be won and this will not be easy.

    We really must not count our chickens before they are hatched or else we will put undue pressure on the team, plus potential unnecessary frustration for us.

    The hallmark of “good” teams is the ability to consistently win “the easy matches” which often can be more difficult then against the better teams.

    But yes, we are in a good run and long may it stay, hopefully until the end of the season.

    It’ll be easier if you just accept now we’re going up and will be in the Champions League in three years.
