The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

A TEAM run­ning on empty, a small squad de­pleted by in­jury and an alarming drop in form, now a place in the play-offs look­ing in­creas­ingly un­likely. How on earth did it come to this?

First, Sheff Utd thor­oughly de­served their win no ar­gu­ment there. I feared that Chris Mor­gan would have them up for this. They could have had eight in the first half alone.

We've not been the same since Paolo Di Canio left - proof if it be needed what a win­ner he was for us. The ar­rival of Kevin MacDon­ald looked promis­ing but his change of tac­tics have been baf­fling.

The pre­vi­ous regime, af­ter promis­ing an or­derly de­par­ture, pro­ceeded to get out quicker than the Amer­i­cans from Saigon.

That's where the blame lies, that's why we had a trans­fer em­bargo which meant no mean­ing­ful re­in­force­ments and that may be ul­ti­mately why we will likely be in League One again next sea­son.
