Don't think we are far off being a decent side, a cutting edge is vital to keep improving, we of course could already have that if we can sign a quality attacking midfield player to add to those kept come June. The second season in this league will be harder, so good recruitment in the summer is key!!!!

Where's the goals going to come from?

Our high earning Nahki replacement now seems to have a role warming the bench.

Half the side is made up of loanees. Taylor, Yeates, Kennedy and McLean are already contracted for next season and who's going to be daft enough to take them off our hands?

Yes, next season's going to be harder alright!

We're pretty unimpressive going forward over the last few months and this needs to be addressed in the summer! MCLean for me has been a major disappointment. Stead is not the answer! Maybe Gregory from Halifax. Anyway more questions than answers for Parky this summer!

At least we are safe with 2 matches to spare. Need to finish off with 2 strong performances now and then take a long hard look at what we expect from next season. Mid table this season will be 12th/13th and we're not guaranteed that yet...could be as low as 17th....next season we start without Wells...we have to be realistic and assume survival again is probably the main aim. .
for a play off challenge it will require a set of home results and performances akin to the first two months of this season and those of Port Vale, MK Dons and Peterborough...McLea
n and Hanson? Unlikely. ..but we need pre season purchases and loans to give us an alternative

My concern is that the usual summer pattern will be repeated yet again. i.e little recruitment activity until the last couple of weeks then we are left sifting through the leftovers while other clubs have been getting on with it. We always get told little will be happening for ages what with folk on holidays etc and yet we can read that so and so have been signed by such and such a club most weeks in the press.

I agree that stead is not the answer. But imo we are over reliant on Hanson and need another striker, giving us some options up front (one option being not to play him). Same goes for midfield, we need one that is prepared to run beyond the strikes.

Problem is, we're not playing McLean in a role that suites his game. We're firing balls up to his throat and expecting him to do something with it.. This is not how he plays. Plus we don't have the quality of player he had around him at his time in Peterborough. If we had 2 players of the quality of George Boyd & McKail-Smith playing with him then I imagine he would be a lot more effective. In order to get the best out of him we need to change the way we play. We saw a little bit of what the future may hold on Friday. Hopefully we get the right players in during the summer & the players we signed last summer step up to the plate rather than just take a wage. Which should enable us to progress

My thoughts exactly. There has been a lot of criticism levelled at McLean, unfairly in my opinion. He will come good IF we play it on the deck.

Without checking, I do not think relegation is possible. This is because two of the terams below have got to play each other. Thus, one or both will drop points and that forms a safety net.

Having checked, it is mathematically possible.

21 Notts County, 23 Shrewsbury and 24 Stevenage cannot catch City.

22 Carlisle can catch City but need to win their last three games and swing a goal difference of 31 in five matches (3 Carlisle games and 2 City games).

Even then, Crewe, Tranmere and Colchester would have to win both their remaining games (respectively) whilst Coventry would need one win, Oldham two points and Gillingham one point; without considering the respective goal differences.

Wolves and Brentford are involved twice (each) in the survival scrap whilst the play-off contenders also feature.

Fair to say, relegation would be freakish and it would be the absolute footballing disaster!!

Couple of quality signings like Oscar Jansson and Dean Furman would help give the squad the strength needed next season. I fancy a keeper of Jansson's calibre would make our defence even harder to break down and Furman would be a superb acquisition driving our midfield and producing more goal scoring chances for both Mclean and Hanson. Yes the second season usually is harder but bring the right players in and it could be very succesful for BCFC.
