Well, Bradford City have slipped from top flight to Division 4 strugglers in 6 or 7 years. They may yet usurp us as best supported club in the conference next season.

Well I certainly don't think they should change to 4-4-2 unless they've practised it. If he just suddenly switched the players to any new formation, it could be disastrous, even if the formation itself made sense in the long term. And I agree that a match against one of the top sides might be an unw...

Just noticed another odd quote post-Droylsden, this time from Jim Smith: "If we had won on Saturday we'd have been a couple of points off the play-offs" Um, after Saturday's matches, the bottom side in the play-off zone had 27 points. We would have had 23 had we beaten Droylsden. A "coup...

Jim seems to believe in youngsters as long as they are not our own. I hope this guy does well though, obviously, though as said above chance creation will be at a premium until something is done about the formation/midfield.

Well I figure we miss Hargreaves to some degree. He is far better than the likes of Hutchison or Trainer. But I just find it difficult to believe we have a better squad (note squad implies that we can deal with injuries - not just talking 1st eleven here), given that our results are so much worse. M...

I think our current squad is a lot stronger then last years and our starting 11 is also better. Hmm, not sure there's much evidence in favour of this... 5-3-2 didn’t work last year, what did work was Jim switching to 4-4-2 at half time and halfway through the season to enable us to finish 2nd in a ...

That, and a few other occasions when it seemed we've done our best to help a team on a long run without a win.

On the downside in this league he is a bit lightweight and playing against some more physical sides I suppose Jim's worry is that he'll find it hard to compete but I don't think he should be too concerned about this. You need strong defenders but even against big strong teams there's room for a mor...

We played pretty well actually, especially in the first half. Salisbury were nasty and brutish though, and god knows how they've got so high in the table - they appeared very limited. Even so we struggled a bit for ideas when they equalised. But overall pretty positive really.

Is this championship the only one for the world crown these days? I seem to recall there was a boxing/darts-style split at one point.

Positives

Well, at least we shouldn't have as many matches moved by setanta in the next segment of the season...
