History repeating?

I'll grab any straw of hope me.
In Mapped first season I can remember a freezing cold Feb night away at Accrington. Stanley at that point could not win a game, yet they went on to beat us 1-0 with the last kick of the game. I lost faith in MApp that night.... that said a few games later everything started to click, from staring a return to non league in the face, MApps management/coaching bore fruit and the team went on a brilliant run of results which carried forward into the following season.

While KR certainly isn't MApp (who eventually realised only plan a was not the way to go), it's the team I support, so I hope last night's disappointing result at Accrington will spark a similar revival of fortunes as the aforementioned visit there had & history does repeat itself ....starting with that elusive away win this Saturday at Blackpool

lets hope so but would’ve hoped fortunes would have turned after one of the many other defeats. i’ve been trying to stay positive all season but have a slight bit of doubt creeping in. would have thought we’ve got good enough players to stay up but off pitch shenanigans can’t be giving them much confidence

Off field certainly at the board level it's an absolutely catastrophic situation of epic proportions.

On field it's not been all that all season either, I'd agree the players should be good enough to achieve l1 survival....if they can defend properly and can score some of the chances created. Question is if that's a realistic achievement with too many loanee s and only the one up front set up , (that as we know isn't working) prefered by the coaching staff. The away game at accrington under MApp marked the point where he realised only plan a wasnt working...hope the same dawning of reality has struck KR n his oppos

Or...

Luton vs Oxford last game of the season. Luton need a win to go up, we need a win to stay up. Danny Hylton scores the winner. Luton Promoted Oxford relegated. Both sets of fans on the pitch. Leyton Orient all over again.

Then someone needs to take one for the team and take Hylton out so he doesn't score a winner!

would love to see Robinson change it and have a plan b but think he would've already done so by now so unfortunately looks like we're stuck playing that way.
Think of the loanees you can't question Graham's commitment and even Browne but have they got enough as a team

Danny Hylton does it Lee Steele style......... I hope not.

Wish he had a plan A!

To be honest, if KR's plan B involves dropping Dickie and playing Mous in central defence, then I hope he sticks with plan A for the rest of the season.
Bet Garbutt plays on Saturday after his goal against Accy.

Dickie looks totally shot of confidence at the moment. can't understand what's happened with him but the last home game I went to bloke near me was constantly shouting at him calling him fecking useless and all that. now I know some will say he's a professional and should handle it but it's not going to help at all. I hope he can get back to how he was playing otherwise mous will be playing there more
