Preston Could be this season's McCormack. We were crap until he took charge of the defence.

Iím going for an exciting 2-2. My biggest worry is keeping a lid on my enthusiasm if and when we score. Iíll be sat with the homies today with an ex work colleague. Still a few beers tonight an a CIU affiliated miners club listening to ripping yarns about the miners strike, their hatred of Tories and southerners should make for an interesting weekend. This ought be an orgasmic night out for Horlock and Smeeton I would have thought.

Never set foot in a CIU affiliated club, so cannot comment, probably due to my being a member of the metropolitan elite...

As for hatred of southerners never heard of experienced that in any pubs up this way (Scotland is another thing), perhaps it's just you, northerners from my experience tend to be very perceptive?

Surprised at how easy it seemed yesterday.
Timing of the goals, good defensive shape & organisation, lack of threat from the opposition?
Probably a combination of all of the above plus some nice football played at times.
Hint of an extra gear if needed in there somewhere. All very encouraging.

Pity we couldn't hang onto the clean sheet.

Mullin, great work ethic & decent ability, appears to make a difference when he plays in these tricky looking away games.

Locals were complimentary after the game.
Had to laugh when someone wondered "what shite was Evans going to come up with in his post match interview this time".

Interesting to watch the shooting practice in the warm up with LV trying to keep everything out.
Anderson looks like the best finisher, followed by Mullin.
Norris goes for power which can affect accuracy.

Good day out, if a long one and continued great support away from home.

Yeah, I tried 'we're shit and we're sick of it' at 3-0 but it didn't catch on.

Still, chin up, we're only 16 points above the zone 🙂

Looks like Charles-Cook had a pretty decent game yesterday. How long is it since we had 2 decent keepers?

Brezovan and Smith? Not everyone rated Smith but I thought he was decent.

Smith and Lucas?

Brezovan was never the same after the arm break.

Still think Wilson should have started Smith at Wembley in 2010. He kept us in that semi final at Charlton after coming on as sub. Not sure he would have come for the ball like Lucas did which eventually lead to their goal either, but...

This from a Mansfield on how we dodged the Evans bullet

ĎHow lucky are Swindon by the way?

Evans was made their number 1 target for the job, and was accordingly made favourite with the bookies.

They were told no by JR, and had to go with option 2...David Flitcroft.

A manager who won't have spent anywhere near what Evans has, and is proven to play easy on the eye, successful football.í

Can still get us to win the league at 50/1. Don't see anyone running away with it but if we manage to improve our home form I don't see why we can't be in the mix come May.

Luton still look a good bet. They can score goals for fun!
