I doff my hat to you Elgin. I can walk to the ground from my house in 30 minutes and most of my journeys this year have not been accompanied with the happy expectation of something good at the end of it. The walk of shame back up the hill afterwards have generally been miserable too.

I don't know how you do it.

People dont seem to relise this was one of the tightest years in mid to bottom table in years, we didnt perform any worse than alot of clubs. Two wins would have finished 8th from 17th, thats 10 teams and half the division.

We only know about our struggle as we focus on it where as Watford etc focus on their's. The season is over and we stayed up, it's a success.

It really is crazy that we won more games than Saints in 8th. Mind you we lost more than Boro in 19th.

Outside of the top 7 there was a lot of dross this season. Well technically there was a lot of dross inside the top 7 too but that's another story. If we'd have had a bit more luck with decisions or held on and respected the point a little bit more we could've easily finished top 10. I thoroughly enjoyed the season, despite the blips.

If we can install a bit more consistency to our game we could easily finish 8th next season and that's even without adding extra quality.

However if we just scrape 17th then that's cool too. Sit back, relax and enjoy the pinnacle of our footballing history happening in front of our eyes...

A generally p1ss poor season was saved by Big Sam at the death. Our season was worse than say Burnley, Stoke, Leicester etc as they were never in real trouble and got save reasonably easily but we had to scrape. The final table shows us in a much better light than it really was saying that we stayed up and live to fight another season.

I have great faith that with a few quid and a pre-season the two Sam's will get something approaching a half decent squad for next year that could be comfortable..................now is the time to dream

The most damning indictment on our season is perhaps where we rank in the league table of wage expenditure etc in conjunction with where we finished in the actual league table itself.

If, like when we first came up, we scraped by but only through a superhuman effort from a limited squad of players, 4th from bottom would have been a fantastic achievement. More is obviously expected from the current squad.

We've seen enough this season to suggest the team could do great things, and enough to suggest they could be terrible. Which one will turn up next season?

A good pint of Guinness or a hot whiskey,,, or Poteen will help your cough. then again it is possibly too early to go to the Doctor for Surgery yet.
