Not at all but his constant negativity and Holier than thou attitude is tedious. Maybe the mods can ban him for a month.. Cheesy

I'm pretty sure 1 month is nowhere near enough!! 😘😘😘

The bottom line is that a vocal section of supporters - rightly or wrongly - feel a sense of entitlement that the club should be competing at the sharp end of the table.

If JFH wasn’t warned of that when he came in, well he certainly knows it now.
Its hardly a misuse of our entitlement quota to want to watch attacking football and  win a few matches more than we lose?

To misquote Eric Morecambe, JFH picks all the right players but not necessarily in the right order.

Whether his tactics are negative or not given our position in the league I would have thought not losing and grinding out results would have to be our priority at the moment. It's what Wilder did when he first arrived. The open attacking football came later.
Having said that JFH's inability to change when things are not working is quite worrying.
Everybody seems to expect an instant fix which is in no way realistic regardless of what has been spent.

1 point in the last 3 games at home is not grinding out results

I completely agree with Beds on this one.

Not expecting to be at the bottom of the league is also completely different to expecting to be at the top.

Another agreement from moi - this is not about entitlement overuse - it's about a basic delivery of entertainment & in fact not even the result.

There is a distinct difference between Wilder's poor period than this - initially not his players and then a learning period where you could see he was putting it right - JFH has his players but from my observations is no closer to directing what he wants from them - maybe time will tell but we are rapidly running out of time.

On another issue from Saturday - the sarcastic applauding - personally I couldn't give a dam (if you hand it out you should be able to take it, & some of the behind the dugout crew are loud mouthed idiots) - but that should have been his honest response, so by suggesting he was genuinely applauding the fans unfortunately gives him the type of credibility Donald Trump has worked hard to achieve.

1 win in the last 6?

Joint worst goal difference (-22) in the league?

Joint most home defeats (9) in the league?

Worst home goal difference (-10) in the League?

Failed to score in half (9) of our home league games?

We can all use/misuse stats!!

The only one that counts I guess is the one that shows us 19th in the table!!

Put it another way 15 wins out of 41 home games is nothing to be proud of ,ONLY 6 HOME wins this season and its march this week,neither is it grinding out results these are the games MOST of us watch

I thought we were judging JFH after he'd actually signed some players? That seemed the general consensus on here. (Thats what my stats are based on)

You're right, 15 wins out of 41 home games is nothing to be proud of, but whats that got to do with Jimmy grinding out results recently? He's only been in charge of 16 home league games anyway.

If we are still 19th come the end of the season then, I for one will be happy. Another season of League 1 football and we will have broken that 2nd season jinx that we always seem to go back down. Then hopefully the job of building a team that was started in January can be finished in the summer and we can fight for play offs next season. I feel like being a bit positive today.

1 point in 3 homes games is relegation fodder. We're lucky other teams like Fleetwood and the Dongs are even worse.
