I still have confidence in Hoppy. Some of his selections have seemed bizarre (persisting with Ramsbottom for example) but as fans, we just DON'T know what's going on behind closed doors and we are on a shoestring budget.

Hopeful that we'll start climbing the league as of this Saturday (which just happens to be the darkest day of the season)!

Correct that we don't know the inner workings but just look at that league table. It's not very encouraging.

Same happened with duffy and he was getting horrible abused, then it all picked up and we got into playoffs

Folk need to be patient

Yes, I said right from the start that Mr Hopkin knows what he's about.

This season feels very much like the relegation season of six years ago. Back then we held onto Moore too long, we're going to do the same with Hopkin.

So if we get relegated this year, is it Hoppy's fault?

I'll decide when/if it happens!

So why wasn't it Moore's fault?

Moore could/should have built on a fairly successful season with continued funding. He had to build a squad all over because Rae slashed the budget. Expectations were unreasonable and he was dismissed.

Hopkin has known from day one that he's been set a difficult task. It's a tight and unpredictable league and we're not yet half way through. We won't be relegated I.M.O., and survival will be hailed as a triumph. That's where we are right now. 'When rape is inevitable......' thumbs down

Well, there's improvement and improvement. Comfortable mid-table would certainly be 'improvement' on where we are right now but real improvement will only come when the poison is removed from our club.

I've heard that a million times in football Spike, it just doesn't wash.

People chuck full time jobs every day, and that's from jobs that are potentially much longer than 3 year deals.

I don't have confidence in anybody or anything at Cappielow right now. The whole place just STINKS.

We did, and long may it continue.
