Nigel Adkins to do his old club a favour or Billy Sharp to dash their hopes? Maybe for Adkins it will even be his old club that is his final game...so may as well help them out?


In other news: Thank #### the seasons nearly over.

Won't be entering the stadium for this, not a fucking chance. I'll go and watch the u21s next week in the playoff final then that's me done with club football til hopefully some nice pre season tour abroad. Good luck to scunny hope you get in the playoffs, I was hoping Gillingham were going to go up but they've blown it imo.

Heard owt on the random Turkish guy doing the rounds?

Find it odd McCabe hasn't said for definite Adkins is staying in either of the fans forums so far.

Huge game and every single one of the boring bastards are sat down. Emptiest I've seen the home end all year, fuck knows why I've come in.

"You're not fit to wear the shirts" and "you're getting sacked in the morning" from the kop, depressing times at this club

I'd be amazed if Adkins is still our manager in August. Personally I've no opinion either way on whether he should stay or go. Unlike the players though who can all leave for me with the odd exception.

Fans have turned on him in the 46th game no way back from that. The players are a fucking disgrace

My thoughts entirely, season ticket sales have been surprisingly good but chants of 'sacked in the morning' combined with our 3rd lowest ever finish will lead to his exit imo

God knows who we bring in though. Wilder? That random Turkish bloke?

Digs at the fans for being on the players back since the first game

Digs at the board for only being able to sign 2 permanent players

Refuses to answer why his poster boy Hammond was subbed...doesnt have to justify his decisions...im assuming the fans got to Hammond, he didn't even come out for the 'lap of honour'

Yeah the writings on the wall for Adkins. And no thanks to Cotterill.

Unlucky Scunny lads. Nothing more you could have done today (other than winning about 6-0) but if you carry that form into next season you're in for a good one.

Was certainly how it came across, got very snappy about being asked why he subbed Hammond.

I disagree he's right tbf we turn out in numbers home and away but we don't support the team at all but they have to show something on the pitch which they don't at all. All in all the managers been shit the players have been shit and the fans have been shit we need to move on to next year and start showing some fucking pride in the club from top to bottom

I dont think the fans can be blamed for grumbling at how the season has panned out tbf. Past, present and future I doubt there'll be a club different, players perform and (at least) show some pride and the fans go with them (which I saw V Chesterfield n Bradford at home this season) but lack those and fans will complain. Adding abject performances on top of being down here for 6 seasons its clear to understand why we are how we are. Hopefully one day soon we'll return to the atmospheres I remember growing up, team needs to start moving forwards first though.

Yes I agree with that but there's no support at all towards the team there hasn't been for years. The concourse at away games is 100x better than in the ground

Looking at your squad today and seeing your players play, you seem to just have so much deadwood in the club. Players like Alex Baptiste, Paul Coutts, Chris Basham, Jay McEverely. I'd give Adkins the summer and let him trim the squad and see what players he can bring in.

That's been my general thoughts on Adkins (Baptiste has apparently played well, is an Adkins signing and only on loan) tbf.

Clough has left a bloated squad full of averageness. The debate (and why I'm not fussed whether he stays or goes) is if Adkins is up to the rebuilding, Woolford was an atrocious signing, Hammond has had dire reviews but Adkins sticks by him, Sammon is awful, Edgar is ok whilst both Sharp and Baptiste have been decent. All of those players are also ageing and on the way down, I'm not convinced he wont just replace like for like given the chance.
