I wouldn't get too carried away as we know how a couple of defeats quickly change opinion.
You have to enjoy the good times as a Cobbler though so long may it continue.
The main concern is if we get a couple of injuries to key players but that's the same for most teams, especially at our level.

If we are not fighting for top three, you'd at least hope we can embed a place in the play offs. Long way to go but we're on a roll.

The key is going to be how they recover from the next run of bad games as its going to happen. They've shown good resilience after the Sutton and Harlepool games which will hopefully serve them well the next time.

Cant decide if the league break is a good thing or a bad thing. Bad because we are on a roll and have momentum, good because it gives Brady a bit of a chance to maybe rest some players who are struggling. After being largely unchanged for 4 games I would think a few could do with a break or to help a slight knock, like we've seen with McGowan. I do hope he picks a strong team though which I am sure he will for Cambridge

It's great that we're now starting to see something approaching the "bums off seats" football promised by JB. This positive approach is similar to how he began when he took over. I can only assume that the overcautious "nullify threats" early season approach was CC's influence. Does this mean that JB has decided to go with his own philosophy over CC's opinions or has the latter finally come round to the merits of a more attacking approach (hard to believe after so many years)?

I don't really care as long as we keep trying to play the way we are. I've said already this season that we should be good enough to impose our game on the majority of sides in this division and come out on top and that is precisely what's happening at the moment. Our more adventurous, attacking play is breeding real confidence throughout the team and greater fluency. Scraping 1-0 victories with a goal from a set piece out of a total of 2 or 3 shots in the whole game breeds confidence in defence but anxiety and frustration in attack. It's very difficult to sustain a promotion challenge based on that.

When JB has a chance to root out some dead wood in january i think you will see some gaps being plugged.


Who are you thinking? the only real candidates I can see presently are Rose & Bas, since the change to 4-2-3-1 we have too many strikers and neither seem well suited to fill in the lone striker role if needed.

Im not convinced early in the season we set out to be more defensive it was just a case of playing a formation that didnít suit our best players.
