Always good to see a manager set high standards. He felt the Huddersfield game was two points dropped and we shouldn't accept dropping points at home.

So refreshing compared to some of the BS trotted out by previous managers, long may it continue.

How many stewards and police in the away end?? Has it all kicked off already?
Prospects for next season

OK, so assuming we stay in the Championship...

Most likely we will lose most if not all of the players who are out of contract in the summer. From a midfield perspective we should be OK and you hope the likes of Bright, Smyth and Chair will figure more and kick on. The bigger concerns are up front and at the back where we will need to strengthen and do so very shrewdly. We need to find a Pukki goal-scoring equivalent if we can, but then I suppose so do all the other teams.

No doubt next season will be very tough, but if the fans can be patient and supportive (hmmm....) then a part of me is hopeful we can survive and do enough to start building a team that can challenge higher up the table in the next few years.

One thing re club staffing - the large number of coaching staff we currently have, and in general I think the number of staff at the club has doubled in the past few years, I don't know why. If we need to keep a steady financial footing then I think that will have to be addressed over the summer - how McClaren will cope with that I don't know, equally I don't know what his appetite is for building a team with youngsters and lesser known players from the lower leagues. We saw what he thought of that approach earlier this season, so without the money, resources and 'players he knows' I do wonder if he'll decide it's not for him and move on at the end of the season.
