    I remember PW saying that he'd watched Luton a number of times last season and he said they were very good and couldn't understand why they were in a relegation spot.
    They ultimately escaped and have obviously tweaked a few things this season to transform into a mid table club
    A Change of Manager too during the first lockdown so obviously they've got some momentum from that

    Yes sometimes refreshing the managerial team can give a boost to results even with the same squad of players. Even a short run of success can be just enough to avoid relegation, or to sneak into a play off place.

    Barnsley have also changed their Manager recently too and it seems to have had the same effect
    I'm not for one minute suggesting we change ours but just highlighting that some clubs find a manager who gets the best out of them and is a good fit

    We 've already found ours

    Their experience of a miraculous escape last season has given them impetuous to push on. Thatís the difference.
    If we can stay up, I believe we will become more competitive the following season.

    Plus we have also got some potentially good players emerging , Styles ( one to watch ) Brittain showing to be a great signing , Woodrow is quality too , personally I think we both will be safe from the drop , apologies for invading your board with my thoughts , I will scuttle back to where I belong !!!

    Britains, wasn't that the toy shop across from Barnsley library?

    Looks like the toys are still available anyway, even if the shop isn't there.

    Isn't it the same thing for you lot though ?.
    Don't tell me that us staying up meant more impetus than your team going up!.

    We were second for most of the season and then was in a bit of loose form before being promoted in PPG.
    I think the most honest of Rotherham will admit we were fortunate to get promoted. Peterborough and Sunderland were closing fast.
