    It's hard on the eye Roly and why many of us are getting pyssed off with it .

    We recruit these young players and develop them but by definition its us watching this process , they make all the mistakes here and are than bought by bigger financial clubs who reap the benefits once we've knocked em in to shape .

    And repeat ............

    Nothing guaranteed by any means but if we do go down we'll most likely bounce straight back with this young group and they'll be sold on the back of the development and success next summer .

    Back to square one again and another batch of young players comes in ready to be eaten alive in the Championship .

    What's the point of it ?

    I've a nagging feeling we will be doing the same animal. Perhaps its the best we can hope for at least till they make it a more level playing field in the championship...

    I actually think you've a more realistic chance next season and I can see the league coming more towards yourselves .

    Enough to keep you out of the bottom three at least .

    Possibly some improvement up top as I can see you having some issues scoring enough goals as you are bound to concede at least one per game possibly two away from home .

    At the end of the day fourth bottom is the new success for both of us at this level .

    Sam Winnall available from Wendy as a free agent , injury free he's got goals in him at this level , worth a phone call .

    I think our fire power will be a little bit better this season without being prolific. We will definitely ship goals though again I have thought a number of times this season we have got away with defensive balls up. We will be punished in a jiffy for the same balls ups in the championship. Last time we drew far too many. If we can just turn 3 or 4 1-1ers into 2-1ers we may have a chance...its as daft as that, and you will know your sen 5 or 6 extra points can make all the difference if you wanna stay up.

    Your looking to score over 50 championship goals and concede less than 60 as a rule of thumb and championship safety .

    The current bottom three as it stands right now have scored less than 50 and conceded more than 60 although there's still 7 games to go so we are all heading towards conceding over 70 , Luton already have .

    That's the nut that has to be cracked .

    Iíve watched a few Championship games recently including Bristol City v Owls and Forest v Huddersfield.
    We donít have to be scared, hopefully lessons were learned last time we were there.
    Stop showing too much respect for other clubs and play to our strengths.
    A couple of experienced players will help us along the way.

    I'd like to think The emergence of Shaun MacDonald will be a bonus for us next season.
    Experienced at cship level and got rid of his injury. Hopefully he'll come good for us.
    After escorting Jamie Lindsay all the way home to Scotland he deserves another chance with our fans

    Can't see McDonald being involved. He never looked right in league 1. This is the championship. Need some physically strong players next season.

    If he plays like he did in the away game at Donny then he'll be a big asset, he played great that day until going off injured, we fell apart when he went off.
