    Last season we had a mid season blip with a period of 1 win in 7. The team were playing poorly and people were beginning to question Jackett a little. We responded in impressive fashion with 9 straight wins and a record of 17 wins, 3 draws and just 1 defeat from the remaining 21 games as we powered to the title.

    Fast forward near enough 12 months, a horrendous spell of 6 without a win, 5 straight defeats including some hammerings. We've responded with 13 points from a possible 15...

    Exactly what I was thinking at full time...

    Just like last year..

    Price comes In

    Edwards starts scoring

    Stearman and Bath got better

    we bought Clarke...

    Lets hope Afobe wont be like Clarke.

    We also bought Dicko though so let's hope Afobe is less like Clarke and more like Dicko.

    And if the referee hadn't screwed us against Bournemouth, we'd be two points behind them.

    Full marks to KJ and the boys for turning it round and putting in performances full of endeavour and patches of real quality.

    The Manager has done a stunning job over the last 18 months.

    The losses this year coincided with the injury to ND. Confidence in the rest of the team just soars when he is on the pitch.

    What a decision it was to appoint Kenny Jackett. To think lots regarded him as a dull, uninspiring choice who would steady the ship and stop the rot. What he's achieved is better than anyone could have imagined for me.

    I don't wish to get ahead of ourselves here, as I still believe we'll finish just outside the playoffs, but this aside and regardless he has done a fantastic job so far.

    I believe next season is when the next big test for him will be. Assuming we don't go up this year, no Sako and less money - that will be when we really be able to see quite how good he is. And I think as well as hope he'll surprise a few.

    And when you look at some of the games we've thrown away (Millwall & Reading) we really should be right up there.


    That hammering against Derby really did the teams confidence, if we'd have come away with 2/3 nil loss I really think those games afterwards would have been different even without Dicko.

    I reckon we're in with a shout of playoffs. I just think it's been very impressive what's he done, we were in dire straits when he arrived and from the start he's not been afraid to make big and brave decisions. It's been a year since Preston at home when the run started, but imagine being told 53 weeks ago after Gillingham that we'd be challenging for the playoffs in the Championship now. Really good job.

    That's what I'm hoping too.

    I honestly don't think we will repeat the fantastic way we finished last season, but the way he had turned things around since a truly terrible spell in November, is impressive, and the playoffs are no longer looking like a distant dream...

    Reading my post again I come across far more negative than intended...

    I am delighted with what Jackett is doing!

    But I think next year will be the real tough job of pushing us on once more.

    The secret to the improvement has been the tightening of defence as we have conceded 1 in the last 6 games incl the cup and scored only 5.

    Note that EEL has been dropped and Rowe is also out injured plus Iorfa has come in at right back. Macdonald generally plays better alongside Price as they have a good understanding. Iorfa is absolutely solid. Hause has done well too though I think we will improve further when Golbourne comes back as he links up so well with Macdonald and Sako as well as defending well. The dropping of Golbourne was one of the major reasons why our form went pear shaped in the first place IMO but the team have now adapted to cope without him.

    Of the next 9 games 8 are v teams below us - could this be the start of another great run?

    Yeah, it will be a test. Also a test for Morgan and the powers at be, because presuming we stay in the Championship for some time there might come a point where we have to either spend to try to get out or try another approach. Really hope we can do it with KJ though.

    The dreaded mid season blip, the bane of every Football Manager player.

    It happens to the best of us...

    It happens. The worrying thing is just how many on here wanted to sack Jackett after losing just 5 on the bounce after doing a first rate job for 18 months beforehand.

    We are now on a mini good run but I think there is a danger that mixers are getting a bit too carried away the other way. If we can add more of a cutting edge into the squad then the season could yet have a successful outcome. Even if not our points haul is pulling us away from any possible struggles at the wrong end.
