Deep breaths people... I know it May seem odd or hard to accept but we had the same old comments and reactions popping up this time last year in relation to loosing players, Brown being disliked or players loosing faith in him, and people calling for his head, this was after barely surviving the second half of the season. This is just how we seem to do pre pre season, note it's not even pre season yet..

Garentee someone will say "well such and such have already signed this and that" well good for them, we could've brought in any old riff raff early doors last time around and used the tight budget up on mere squad players, instead PB bided his time and brought in Cox, Ferdinand and Ranger (ok his debatable about how good he will be for us now with his sentence but can still be a quality player). Last time around our squad was threadbare, people was panicking about not even having enough senior players to fill a match day squad.

Look how it ended up 7th, one point off the play offs. So let's not hunt PB and RM with the pitch forks just yet aye? Review the situation again come mid July. There's a lot that can happen before A ball is kicked.
