Youre right, it's the 0-0s that are brutal. I'd rather a 1-0 win against Crawley followed by a 0-1 loss to Bolton. I actually think our hand was forced in the Walsall game because of the early goal, otherwise that would probably have been another 0-0 too.

Grinding out 0-0s is for when you've tried to play a little more expensive and have had no luck doing so. It seems that we started the season with the game plan of grinding it out (with the odd exception), likely because of how shit last season was. But I the management should have done a better job of trying to dispel the bad mentality from last year, especially since the majority of the squad was new. Instead, the Barrow game has set the tone for much of what we have seen this season.

Look, if we finish above the relegation zone, it's an improvement from last year. And as long as we see improvement year over year, it's difficult to complain too much. I just hate settling for mediocrity. We used to be a club that tried to be better than that. Now we are just another Morecambe, Crawley, etc. A team that no-one gives a fuck about, including our own fans half the time.
