It's interesting flicking back one Christmas, then two, and looking back over people's posts. It reveals nothing other than that people have set ways of posting, especially when things aren't exactly going to plan.

Posts are repeated almost word for word, at the very least the same sentiment.

It's now 73 hours and Fifteen minutes till we kick off in Lincoln, weather permitting.

Keep calm and carry on.

You beat me to it.

These countdown posts are particularly irritating as well. One imagines Timb sat in a lonely bedsit watching the clock whilst listening to an old Soft Cell 12" of Memorabilia on repeat.

Just under 19 hours to go.

And then we'll have another round of analysis in the making.

I think;

1) We were pretty fortunate to go up last season. We played much better in the play offs than we generally had through March and April.

2) It was mistakenly believed that many of the players who got us promoted were good enough for League 2.

3) Recruitment over the summer was poor. Whether this was lack of funds, players unwilling to come to us, or whatever.

4) We started the season with a very different defence, only Dale Bennett was a starter from the previous season. Cooper swapped and changed both players and formations, couldn't find a formula that worked and we constantly shipped goals. We had an improved run through October and November, but a lot of damage had already been done.

5) Now we are in a relegation dog fight. Some blame the manager, others the players, or a combination of reasons. Most on this forum seem to agree that we urgently need several players of higher quality or ability than we have in order to stay up.

6) Many now seem to be pinning their last hopes on a successful transfer window and improved results through the second half of the season, though a fair few seem to doubt that MC will get it right.

Personally, I don't think Mark Cooper is going anywhere. I think he will still be here in April and we will still be scrapping it out to stay up, possibly until the very last game of the season.

Well, in 24 hours time we'll have just witnessed the next round in our competition and then have a nice little discussion about the state of the team in 2018.

Looking forward to it
