If there's a list of people who were wrong about Steve Cooper, add me to it. Turns out he does know what he's doing...

Being 2nd and 4 points ahead of 3rd will always make you promotion contenders in anyone's book. We've found the sort of consistency you need to get out of this division and although we were doing quite well at the time, I think the Derby performance was a bit of a wake up call as it showed what can happen if you become complacent playing a team in the relegation places. Since then we have been thorough and more streetwise throughout the entire team even when changes have been forced upon us and barring injuries or more recalls, I can see no reason why we shouldn't continue to be consistent and maintain our place among the leading group as this is our new mindset and every player seems to be on board with it. In the last couple of months, we have beaten several teams who must have wondered how they lost and everyone will now know that it won't be enough to outplay us because they can still lose. The rest of this season is going to be very interesting.

Nope.

Once they've vaccinated the 10% of people who make up approx 90% of Covid fatalities there's no reason why a lot of restrictions can't be lifted or eased. We won't be seeing a full house any time soon, but say 4,000 fans in an outdoors bowl designed for five times that many ought to be doable.

Yep, spot on, never been happier to be wrong. Love the club and always want us to be doing well.

If they do it, they need to do it better than they did when it happened in England. They seemed to squeeze them into tiny parts of the ground particularly in Chelsea and Liverpool where they only opened the Kop. Also seemed to be squeezed in like sardines at Bentford. They should be dotted around the place like they were for Northern Ireland's playoffs. A bit of gumption sadly lacking innit.

I think we'll have a break before long and season will be extended, maybe then we will return but at a reduced capacity.
Infection rates amongst football clubs aren't the best of late.
