Sooner we forget that week the better, and the sooner DW looks at his performance for that match with selections and tactics, the more games we wiill win. He could not even own up to his errors in the Adver .... I like DW but am very worried now about this - it was absolutely crazy and vertually threw the game into the laps of the opposition.

I'm sure they'll be a couple of comments from our friends at Hartlepool! A lot of people seem to be really wanting this apology. I'm more bothered about them learning from this and getting it right.

True Nellup but also its about respect - to supporters and his players. This to me smacks of tunnel vision and arrogance. DW is stlll my preferred choice manager and would love to see it all work out after this, hopefully only a blip.

I don't disagree... We just have to see what happens throughout August because we have MK Dons, Southampton, Oldham and Southend all coming up - all of them tough fixtures.
